We were here over the July 4th weekend so the restaurant and the area was pretty much dead. That's good news for us then. Easy to get a table and find parking around the block. The restaurant had a big bar along with an outdoor patio so I'm sure it's great for happy hour. Their menu has something... read more

I have had good experiences at Cafeteria 15L at the airport, but this was not one of them. The server was very brisk and verging on rude when she approached our table to take our order. I ordered a buffalo chicken sandwich, which took 45 minutes to get to our table. It must have been cooking for nearly the full... More

We visited as a family for an evening meal during a holiday in Sacramento. This restaurant serves American food - salads to bugers and all sorts in between - of good quality with a decent range of drinks. Everyone enjoyed their food, the service was prompt and the ambiance pleasant. Prices are reasonable. We would definiately visit agaian.

For my 30th birthday, I wanted to go all out and pig out. I ordered the Border Burger with lettuce and no chipotle-mayo sauce. It was delicious! I ordered my meat well-done. It was juicy and honestly, the best burger I have ever had. The thin cut fries were crispy and good as well. My husband ordered the Pork chop... More

Nice day so we decided to sit on the patio. Each of us had a different entree and everything was good! I visit here a couple of times a year and see several items I look forward to trying. Staff was attentive yet left us alone to conduct business. Will repeat.

This place is a must if you like good food. I can not say enough about this experience. The food was out of this world. Creamed corn and salmon was awesome. Then there was dessert omg fantastic personal banana cream pie. Wait staff was wonderful. I can't wait to come back to enjoy this place again.

Four adults and two 12 year old boys thoroughly enjoyed our dinner on the patio. Mojitos and mocktails for the boys were a hit. Next we all adoringly savored the watermelon tomato salad. Our mains were very tasty and satisfying. Service was excellent. A good time was had by all.

Had a private group dinner on the patio. It was well over 100' and I was worried about eating outside. They had air conditioners and fans and it was beyond pleasant. And then the food! The appetizers were really great. The sparerib puff thing was so good. The Mac and cheese was incredible Everyone loved what they ordered. The desserts... More

I visited this restaurant in an earlier iteration a few years ago when it was Mason's. It was loud, expensive and pretentious. It was a fairly nice room but filled with 20-something trendoids who either acted as if everyone over 30 wasn't there or more often bestowed on those of us over 50 the withering gaze that could only mean...
