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

We recently held a rather large (but cozy) 4 hour reception in the atrium area and the ambiance was great and the appetizers even greater. If You have never experienced chicken, waffles and gravy on a skewer, you are in for a real treat! The service was great, the crowd was comfortable, and valet parking convenient.

My wife and I came for a light dinner at 5 pm before attending a play at the Sacramento Theatre Company. The restaurant has a modern decor with seating both indoors and outdoors on a patio. The restaurant is much more than a cafeteria but lacks the intimacy of fine dining restaurants. Our dining experience was very mixed, hence the... More

The salmon that I ate had a good taste. Price seemed a little high for what I got, but I was very satisfied with the meal. I also got a mint chocolate chip ice cream desert that had a great taste.

Don't be fooled by the name, this is not a "cafeteria." We were staying at the Residence across the street, checked in and very hungry so we ran over to grab something to eat. They have outside eating but it was warm so we elected to eat in the air conditioning. The seat we had was next to the outside... More

Gorgeous patio - perfect for brunch. Bottomless mimosa option as well as the standard drink options. Food is eclectic and changes with the seasons.

This review is for their location at the airport, since I can't find a separate listing. This used to be my go-to restaurant but the food quality has gone down. Had my favorite buffalo chicken sandwich and was deeply disappointed. The crispy coating was beyond cooked...so much that I couldn't bite into it. It had been deep fried so long... More
