Cafeteria 15L Ratings and Reviews
Dine Downtown menu option was not availa ...
Dine Downtown menu option was not available (they ran out of scallops the night before) which was very disappointing. It was the reason we selected that restaurant. A birthday party for a 16-year old was taking place in the back bar, stretch limo out front, lots of teens in bathroom, and loud music. It wasn't completely awful, but I doubt we will go back.

Pre symphony dinner. We were seated promptly and found waiter excellent at suggesting drinks and describing the menu selections.
Food was excellent and display attractive. Our first dinner experience. We have been to Saturday brunch many times.

A friend and I had to come from San Francisco to look at a car . This restaurant came up first for best places to eat in sac . The dealer said the food was really good so we gave it a try . I had the French Dip and it was so good . My friends Cobb salad was also just as good ! The staff was also very nice and attentive

Top notch! We had a party of 6 for Brunch on a Saturday. Made reservations and were seated timely. The service was great, friendly, fun and informative. Our server was very attentive yet we never felt rushed. Best Eggs Benedict I ever had, we will definitely be coming back. Generous portions made for yummy leftovers the next morning!

My 9yrs old daughter & I had dinner before heading to a musical (in 45 mins)& as soon as we were seated I informed the server.
She got our order really quick & accurate.
We enjoyed our meal & it was our second time eating there.
The food was good-my beet salad had a great balance with pistachios & pomegranates & my daughter's western burger was delicious.
We'll definitely be back!

Tried Cafeteria 15L for the first time for my mom's 80th birthday dinner. Food was great, menu had good variety of choices. Service was excellent, served very quickly, server very attentive. My husband and I will include it as one of the places we go to for a quick bite.

Our party of 7 was there on a slow night, but that shouldn't take away from our comments on very good service. Hostess and waitress were both enthusiastic and there to make our little birthday party fun, easy, and problem free. Appreciated the offerings for everyone ranging from my healthy vegetarians to my fried food junkies.

Perhaps I just ordered the wrong things (tomato soup and the ahi starter), as did my colleague (Fried chicken sandwich), but the food was just remarkably mediocre given the high quality of equally priced food at so many better restaurants in mid town Sac now. The service was great and the people are lovely. But the food was a real disappointment.

Went there for an anniversary dinner, and the food was amazing- a little pricey but definitely worth it. We went on a weekday, so it was pretty empty in the restaurant, but we talked about coming back for happy hour one day, as the bar looked amazing. Best dish was the brussels sprout appetizer!

We had a party of nine, and were seated promptly. Service was comfortably timed and friendly. The food was good and the ambiance is lively and fun (a bit on the noisy side). Have eaten here before prior to attending events at the Community Center Theater and will continue to do so.

Cafeteria 15L is our 'go to' Restaurant in downtown. They have a large variety of food, and they have one or two specials every night too. Usually their special is what I end up getting. This visit they had Butternut Squash or the Sea Bass. Well from past experience I know their Sea Bass, is the best I have ever had! Better than even Ruth Chris! So I do not miss an opportunity to order it when available! We always go there before the Sacramento Broadway shows or other shows we are attending downtown, because it is next door to the Community Theater. Always convenient, delicious and great service!

Unfortunately the last few times I've been to Cafetera15L I have been disappointed. This last time the food was just too salty. My daughter could not finish her soup because it was so salty. Also, my husband's fish (the night's fish special) was too salty. Don't think we'll be returning.

We were actually more than pleasantly surprised at Cafeteria 15L. We were worried (because of the name & dreaded memories of school cafeterias) but found this to be a very pleasant dining experience with great food and good value (wine was a bit high priced however). French onion soup was excellent and desserts were very good, although caramel was a tad too sweet.
