Cafeteria 15L Ratings and Reviews
Table was ready when we arrived. I've visited 15L as a couple, small group and with larger theater groups. Always a great menu selection of food and prices. The busy bar makes good drinks and the wait staff is quick, attentive but unobtrusive. We've never been disappointed.
I would recommend more for the ambiance and the mixed drinks. My drink was superb - a blood orange martini. Dinners were mediocre. The brussel sprouts that accompanied the chicken dinner were not fully cooked. The breaded pork loin was dry, with too little gravy. The decor was clever and interesting, but our table was wobbly.
This was a fun place to have Sunday brunch. The mimosas were perfectly mixed and glasses very well tended to. A couple of friends in my group ordered different benedicts. Both had a difficult time cutting through the extremely tough english muffins which created quite a mess. I ordered a skillet and the totts were way to greasy for my particular taste. I did get to sample the chicken and waffles and the brioche french toast, both of which were delicious. Our server was very polite and attentive. I will definitely be back to see what else this light and trending spot has to offer.
Although our food was prepared with great timing, I felt that it took way too long to get our drink and food orders in. I've been to this restaurant for brunch before but it hasn't been this busy. I also think it had to do with where we were seated that the service wasn't as great as I'd hoped it would be. We were seated on a fold out table in the back of the restaurant where the service wasn't ideal.
We were celebrating a belated Valentines day with two other couples.
Everything was awesome, loved everything we ordered, cooked to perfection and very flavorful.
Excellent service and the wine choices were numerous for every taste and budget.
I cant wait to goback!!!
It was overall an alright experience, however the server brought out the food and only came back to give us the check. She never came back to check on us or see how the food was tasting. We wanted more drinks and a dessert but she didn't offer before/after giving us the check. Needless to say, I left wanting dessert :( P.S. It was lightly busy for a Friday due to the rainy weather.
These people have gotten very unfriendly. Even the female manager that greeted us didn't even take time to smile. She set out menus down before we got to the table and with her back to us simply said "enjoy". The rest of the staff was the same. Food was not great. Truly a subpar experience.
We arrived 40 minutes early to our reservation and the hostess recommended that we grab a drink at the bar while she tries to find us an earlier table. The bartender was very efficient and courteous to us and was very polite when he double checked our foreign ID's. Hostess texts me that there is an earlier table and then we are seated quickly and offered recommendations and popular dishes. The poached salmon salad was very delicious and refreshing while the trio of fries were crispy and well seasoned, we took home leftovers.
Cafeteria 15L offers excellent comfort food: burgers, sandwiches, salads as well as entrees such as salmon and short ribs. Clever starters, the best of which is a trio of french fries with dipping sauces. Desserts run to sundaes and chocolate. prices are very reasonable for a core downtown restaurant. Our check for four was $165, including tax, tip and $45 bar tab (about $20 per person for food).
This was my second time visiting Cafeteria 15L; no disappontment at this place! Food is magnificent and the service off the chart. Took both of my daughters for their first visit; they loved it.
The only con is parking -- the lot next door is $20.00 even on Saturday and Sunday.
The night we had dinner was really loud, in large part because the Kings v. Warriors game was on. Our server was fine, she did check our ID cards for the second time when we ordered drinks (our ID cards were checked upon entry). And finally our ID cards were checked each time we visited the restroom, it felt pretty policed.
The food was good and the serving size were big enough for all of us to share all our orders.
Although I've had good experiences here before, this time we were seated at a reserved table in the bar area. Noise level was very high and service was lacking. Food was great as always. If/when I return, I definitely will request a table away from the bar.
The folks at Cafeteria 15L (management, receptionists, waiters and other helpers) were very pleasant and accommodating. We arrived a few minutes late but they gave us the next available table for our birthday brunch. And what a treat we had...the food was delicious and the place was vibrant with happy customers. I ordered the chicken and waffles. I never had them country style (with gravy) before but the combination was fabulous. My daughter loved the pancakes with berries. We'll definitely visit again!
Had brunch for my 60th birthday celebration w/6 friends. Made reservations online & everything was perfect. We were able to attend an event at the Golden 1 Cntr on time, since we didn't have to wait! The Service, drinks (bloody Mary's & mimosa) we fabulous & of course the food was delicious. Thank you for a wonderful time! We will be back!!
The noise level was well beyond "energetic." In the breaks between music, it was delightful. Food was great, service superb. Food was served quickly. Waiter plus all of the other wait staff could not have been been better. We have had past visits where things seem to have been far less organized. Thanks for a great evening.
