15 Walnut was designed with comfort in mind, first and foremost. In that respect, the restaurant is a huge success. From its calm ambiance to the comfortable seating, you’ll have an easy time relaxing when you stop in at 15 Walnut.
The menu is amazing and very diverse. You can order any number of brick oven-fired items, incredible burgers or even sushi. All of these options make it really easy to pick 15 Walnut as a spot for family dinners. For lunch, they serve some amazing meals too, like day boat haddock, marinated steak tips and steak frites. Most dishes can be modified for those who are gluten free.
A wonderful treasure in our area--warm, welcoming, terrific food, great service. And we are so thankful the sushi menu is back--especially the 15 Walnut roll!
Second time, and keeps getting better.
We come here frequently and are never disappointed. The food is consistently great and the staff is very friendly. It can get fairlly crowded and a bit noisy, but not too loud to effect a very enjoyable dining experience.
We had a most enjoyable meal at this venue.
We had been here maybe 4 or 5 times and usually had great food. This time it was ok. The menu sounded great and it was almost impossible to choose. But the fried artichokes had a thick batter on them and were not very golden brown. Beet salad was excellent. All the wood fired items were not wood fired because the hood wasn't even working. (We didn't realize this until we got our food). I guess I feel like our server should have explained that. So everything that should have been roasted and caramelized were pretty soft and beige and not very exciting. Also they sous vide the chicken too long. It was gummy. This visit wasn't terrible, I just think based on the menu and our previous visits we had higher expectations. our drinks were amazing!
We hadnt been to 15 Walnut in about 1 1/2 years because we were so dissappointed the last time we went (more by the atmosphere and service than by the food). While the atmosphere and service still arent warm and inviting (they arent bad they're simply blah) the food more than made up for it. We had the tapas board to start and it was very good. All 3 of us were very happy with our entrees (scallops, steak tips, and duck). The chocolate molten cake that we shared was great. The entrees are a little pricy but you can get drinkable wine for $7 a glass.
Not a kid friendly restaurant at all. We had one child with us and we were seated in the very last table in the restaurant right next to the back door. When we approached the table I asked is this the kids room? Two people in our party ordered the same exact meal; the rib eye. One dish came out as you would expect a rib eye to be and cooked as asked (rare). The second dish came out half the thickness and a smaller in size and overdone. It was asked to be cooked medium rare. It was pre-cooked and then cooked again. When brought to the waiters attention he really didn't know what to say. He then asked if she would like to take the rest of her meal home! Manager never came over to apologize; nothing. Needless to say we will not be back.
We went on a Sunday evening, so a lot more quiet than on a Saturday and Friday night. I made reservations, but did not need them. The bread basket had warm and yummy rolls. My husband ordered the scallop dish (kale and risotto) - recommended by the waitress and he loved it. My soon-to-be daughter-in-law ordered the large size lobster macaroni and cheese and said it was very tasty, but also very rich - a lot of food to take home. My son ordered the BBQ (Brussel sprouts). Also very good. I ordered the duck breast, (wild rice/figs and Brussel sprouts). Prepared nicely.
The restaurant has an open feel. You can see into the kitchen. Nice bar. The sign out front had broken, so it only says '15 Wa' if you are looking for it.
prices way high. portions too small. bread pudding not good or even warm. blood orange marg too sour. terribly poor menu knowledge from the server. pumpkin bisque was yummy. that's about it.
Since our last visit, the menu seems to have been redone. The short rib sandwich with triple cheese fondue and arugula was stellar. Great wine selections.
