Cafeteria 15L Ratings and Reviews
Food and service was great but hostess needs additional customer service training. She was rude and dismissive. No need to be this way. Another host came to help and he was much more friendly and communicated the same policy. It’s all how you say it not what you say.
This is a young people's place but I and my friend, two senior citizens, were treated very well (which does not always happen in young people places) and enjoyed the food. It is the MOST convenient restaurant to the community theatre (concert venue). We'll go back..
I came here with a group of girlfriends for a bachelorette party weekend. We stopped here for brunch and really enjoyed it. It is a really fun atmosphere and the staff was really nice. Not to mention the bloody mary and breakfast food was delicious! I would definitely come back again.
Very nice place for breakfast. The potatoes with our eggs benedict were absolutely delicious. We enjoyed our meal and our time there. Huge place, but we were in the main part of the restaurant and were happy with our table. Be warned the plates are copious and you really need to bring an appetite.
Don't forget to make reservations.
Absolutely the best thing about dining at 15 L is the freshness of the food. Both my guest and I had excellent dinners accompanied with a delicious specialty cocktail. It is a little loud in the restaurant, but that doesn't matter much because the dining is so good and the ambience is friendly.
We had a group of 12 on a Friday night and our server was so attentive. I don't remember her name, but the restaurant was packed and she still came around often enough to refill our drinks and answer any questions we had. Overall the ambiance and food was great! Just what I expected for a Friday night. Will be back again!
The Salmon Salad was delicious and we both would order it again. The macaroni and cheese was very good but we called it butter and macaroni because we could taste more butter than cheese. It was served very hot which was really nice. Our waiter may have forgotten that we were going to the theater as we waited a little too long for our check. We have eaten there many times and overall like the food quite well and the service is typically very good.
Four of us enjoyed dinner before seeing the play "Beautiful" on a Wednesday night. The place was very busy and very noisy, however the vibe was friendly and fun. Limited selections for Vegtarians, which my husband I are. We both ordered the French onion soup and a salad and we shared an order of their Truffle Oil Tater Tots which were excellent. Service was good and staff were pleasantly friendly.
Met friends for Saturday brunch. Had the Bacon-Jam eggs benedict. Food temperature was tepid. Eggs were extremely under cooked. Bottomless mimosas were somewhat flat and room temperature. Server had zero personality. Acted like she didn't want to be there. Never came to check on us after the food was served. She was good about keeping the drinks coming however. Fun, Lively atmosphere, but gets pretty loud. I would try this place again, but not for brunch.
There were four of us and we had a pleasant before-show light dinner. Three of us ordered meals they enjoyed. I ordered from the "small plate" part of the menu. I got shrimp haystacks, or something like that. Anyway, the fried potatoes were drenched in butter and garlic and just too greasy for my taste. The shrimp was dandy. Next time I will order something different. This place has a great atmosphere and attentive service. It is not strong on vegan options. My husband loved his burger and fries and my friends liked the mac and cheese and tomato soup.
Our second visit to this restaurant and I wouldn't recommend as experience was same both times.
Food - OK but nothing special.
Table Service - Good, our server was attentive.
Host Service - Hostess was rude! I asked if we could be seated further away from the kitchen, she said she would check. She didn't return. Walking away from customers seems to be their way of handling any requests. The table was about 6' from the kitchen with the wait staff congregating behind our table around a monitor tracking orders.
Ambiance - Attractive decor, but very noisy, as all hard surfaces. Between kitchen noise, wait staff noise and customer noise, it was very difficult to carry on a conversation.
We were sat next to kitchen opening where staff comes in and out. We asked to move near window but was told that was held for the owners. Then asked to move to the table next to us, after a wait for the hostess to go ask the front, we did get to move. I was disappointed with salmon salad. Cold poached shredded salmon was not what I was expecting.
