Cafeteria 15L Ratings and Reviews
We made the pilgrimage from the Bay area and the other group from Chico to have a family birthday brunch. What a special place. The restaurant was even better because we had an amazing server, Nicole. Nicole is well acquainted with the menu and gave wonderful suggestions. Her vibrant personality really helped to hit this visit out of the park. We had 8 people so tried a variety of items. Everything from truffle tater tots and poke to start; chicken fried steak, burger, watermelon and tomato salad, and then all the way down to mint chip mud pie and blondie butterscotch sundae. Standout dish, hmm everything. Dessert is a must.
Was here for a business lunch, everyone enjoyed their meals! Our server Sarah was attentive and made sure we were well taken care of during our entire meal - thanks Sarah!!! Cafeteria 15L is on the same block as my office and my colleagues and I are here often, it's always a good choice!
Everyone who attended our business dinner at Cafeteria 15L enjoyed the experience. The food is very reasonably priced for both the quality and quantity. The staff was very gracious in accommodating multiple changes to our reservation and the number in our party, and ultimately placed us at a comfortable table in a side room, which we really enjoyed and allowed us to have easier interactions without too much background noise. The food was creative and delicious across the board and the wine choices were a great representation of California wines at both lower and higher prices.
I made this reservation because my cousin came into town to visit from Eureka. The food was phenomenal and the service was just amazing! My cousin is a chef and was completely blown away by the chicken and waffles, he literally couldn't stop talking about it for hours. I had then border burger cooked to order and it was so delicious, so juicy and the perfect amount of guacamole. I cannot wait to come back again and I highly recommend dining here.
On a Friday, we beat traffic, arrived about 15 mins before our reservation and we were seated quickly since they had tables available on the patio. Our server took great care of us with the appetizers and drinks while we decided on dinner. In the end we went with two of her three recommendations, the meatloaf and the pork ribs. Both were tasty and well proportioned so we left full and satisfied. Even the valet parking was a deal ($5). Wasn't our first time and it won't be the last, even with so many options downtown.
I bought tickets to see Joe Rogan at the Sacramento community center theater and used Yelp to find a good restaurant near by. I made reservations here since it was so close to the theater. My husband, and I, thought it was a great restaurant. The service was great, food was delicious, and it was walking distance to the theater, so it was perfect!
A wonderful dining experience with friends prior to a concert. The menu is perfect and we always get the mac and cheese for an appetizer. Our waitress was wonderful and attentive to our table. Cafeteria 15L is always our first choice for downtown dining in Sacramento.
Our group of seven thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The seafood special was Mahi Mahi over a bed of risotto. The mahi mahi was very moist and favorable. We also enjoyed the French dip, shrimp scampi and fish and chips. Our server was personable and efficient.
We love the atmosphere of Cafeteria 15L and look forward to many, many return visits!
I made reservations here for my birthday dinner. It was my first time here and I loved it! My friends did as well. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was really cool. I heard they have a great brunch so I definitely plan on coming back to check that out. Overall, I was pleased and was glad to have chosen Cafeteria to celebrate my birthday!
My Open Table reservation was for 7 PM; however, the restaurant sent a message to me about 6:30 and said our table was ready! I replied that we were two blocks away and leaving immediately for Cafeteria 15L.
Service was prompt. Turkey burger and salmon were good. We would eat here again.
Found the restaurant on line and picked because of the food selection and was not disappointed - the food was awesome. We got there early and were promptly seated. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Loved it - already recommended to a friend! Great place to eat and gather!
AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! We were treated better than family. Our server, Bill, was like a close friend that we had never met - he totally got our sense of humor before he even spoke to us. The food was so delicious that we didn't leave a crumb on our plates. Then, we just could not resist dessert: the Chocolate Bombe!! I'm sure the staff hears this a lot, but it WAS the BOMB!!
The next time we're in Sacramento, we'll make our way back here.
Great spot--a busy, popular place right downtown by the Capitol. Tater tots with truffle oil....Comfort Food with a spin. Nice scrambles and omelettes for breakfast, bottomless mimosas available at brunch for those who want to imbibe. Will be back--nice patio seating, too.
