Went there during restaurant week. My wife had the set menu with the sirloin stake and even though the meat was a little tough the taste was very good and the salad and dessert were better than average. I had the skirt stake which was very good and cooked to order. The prices for both the food and the drinks... More

This is no "cafeteria"! For weekend breakfast, we were greeted, seated and served immediately. The food was up less than 5 minutes after we ordered. And it was good, nice sized portions, tasty, well prepared. The decor is hip industrial, very well done. Definitely a plus for downtown Sacramento.

We were attending the production of 'Dirty Dancing' and dropped in at this restaurant with no reservation. They accommodated us as long as we finished dining before people who had reserved for the evening arrived. It worked out great and the food was good.

Loved the atmosphere there. Sort of industrial, hipster type style. Nice bar area too. Took advantage of DineSacramento (3 entrees for $31). Had the Thai Curry Butternut Squash Soup, Grilled Bistro Beef Filet with wild mushroom ragu and cabernet reduction over creamy potatoes, and Pumpkin Spice Bread Pudding with vanilla ice cream. All were delicious! I'll be back!

This is definitely not your standard cafeteria food! This is a regular restaurant, spacious, modern, large comfy bar area, and the food is very good and not too pricey. We went on a Sunday night, were seated right away, and had prompt service. I had the skirt steak, very tender with a nice sauce, and my husband had the pork... More

Took wife and son out to a casual dinner to Cafeteria 15L. My son's first visit to this restaurant as he now lives in San Diego. He was impressed with the decor and ambience. We started with drinks, green tea for wife; Pepsi for son; and my usual Keetle One on the rocks with a twist. For an appetizer we... More

Been here a few time for dinner, which was fantastic. Today came here for brunch. I think I like their brunch more than I like their dinner. Everyone in my party loved their food. I got the waffle breakfast sandwich, which was awesome. Those potatoes they give you on the side and super yummy as well. Waitress was very friendly,... More

Recently I treated family members to a birthday dinner at cafeteria 15L. The atmosphere is fun, staff well-trained and knowledgeable and food quite good. It was the first time my birthday guest had been to the restaurant and she thoroughly enjoyed the experience stating she and her husband would return again soon.

My husband and I ate at their airport location at the Sacramento International Airport last Sunday evening. It is definitely an above average airport offering. I liked that the restaurant wasn't too crowded and that the tables were spaced apart enough to give some breathing room. Usually airport restaurants jam customers in. This had a relaxed vibe. The succulent arrangements... More

This restaurant is opposite Residence Inn and was recommended by the Hotel front desk. Picking the entrée was difficult because the selection was limited. However, the food was excellent and plentiful. The beer selection was good. However, the seats were uncomfortable and we felt like we were sitting in buckets. I would recommend the food and the ambience but don't... More
