Although we added a seventh person to our reservation last minute, they came through and got us an exceptional table and made our experience a wonderful one. The food was delicious (enjoyed the Brunch menu) and the service was excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant!

We went in with a reservation as a party of 13. It was our family reunion dinner and we had a birthday we were celebrating. They allowed us to bring in a cake for a $1/person charge - very reasonable. They sat us on time, the server was amazing, the food was delicious. We forgot a candle for the cake and our server helped us out and got us one. Will absolutely go back!

Very nice patio. I'd only go back if I could sit out there. Inside is too noisy for me. Steak salad and seared ahi salads were both over dressed. Ask them to go light on the dressing or they will overdo it.

We always enjoy Cafeteria 15L. The chicken and waffles are delicioust, and the fish and chips were among the best we've had - I don't know how they get the batter so light and crispy. The ambiance and service are always good as well.

Food and service were excellent. However, the bathroom setup was distressing. The sink area of the men and women's bathrooms are constructed with a glass wall between such that one can be stared at by a member of the opposite sex while washing your hands, grooming, etc. Pretty easy to be inadvertently observed and embarrassed.

On my reservation notified that we were celebrating a birthday. Then when we checked in we reminded the hostess yet NOT even a candle on the celebrant dessert! Rated Poor customer service for this oversight. Never coming back for a special occasion. Hostess should have notified our server. Why even ask if we are celebrating if no follow though?

 (New York Area)·Dined on September 24, 2017

Although Cafeteria's ambiance was spectacular (post a wedding day) brunch., and food serving and variations were good., I find the service received fairly poor which contrast the overall experience. First my acquaintance has to return and request a burnt coffee (only to be questioned and frowned visibly by the sever) also upon mentioning to the server how my rewards number should be included in checkout., it was completely disregarded and billed closed without points reward. I guess only a one time experience for us in a short Sacramento visit.

Cafeteria 15L is a great place to grab a bite to eat for lunch. I often end up here with friends as a default when we are by the Capitol. It features casual fare at reasonable prices. One of my favorite dishes is the watermelon & tomato salad. However, I would avoid the meatloaf as it is a football of densely compacted meat with a slightly off seasoning flavor.
