I went to this restaurant for lunch a couple months ago, was unable to get in for dinner on a Thursday last month, but had no wait on a Friday night this month. It is close to the State Capital and the convention and community centers, so if there is an exhibit or show, they seem very busy but... read more

Walked around the corner from the Sac Convention Center to grab some brunch. Intimidated by a line of people standing outside the door, but we were seated in minutes. The decor and outdoor seating areas looked really cozy, but it was a chilly early afternoon so we opted to sit inside. The decor is very pleasing! Couch like seating with... More

Description: The Cafeteria is a unique, upscale American fare restaurant. When you walk in the front door your eyes find a metropolitan style that includes an assorted array of industrial, modern, and a touch of antique type interior design. The best description that comes to mind is “trendy”! Location: The restaurant is located three blocks from the Capitol, and two... More

15L is easy to find. The food is quite good, but plan to go at the "regular" times. We went here for lunch about 2 and the lunch menu was shortened. Fantastic attitude by staff. I accidentally spilled an entire cup of coffee, all over the table, menus, floor, etc. The waitstaff couldn't have been more gracious. We would definitely... More

I have made reservations at plenty of nice restaurants for special family occasions. Every time I have made a special request via open table I have had a great experience. I asked for something a little special for my wife, it is our 18th anniversary. Nothing! Not just that the appetizers were terrible. The drinks my wife an I ordered... More

Modern and upbeat in atmosphere this is a solid restaurant choice for comfort food. The meat loaf was good but could have used a little less sauce but the portions were good. Service was friendly and not over bearing. All in all not too bad.
