Stopped for dinner with friends. Very nice industrial design, open kitchen, casual atmosphere. The dinner menu has something for everyone. The brussel sprouts with a light vinaigrette dressing was excellent. The Trio of fries was creative and very good. The BBQ flavor fries were great. The Chicken Caesar salad was fresh and very good. The atmosphere was a bit noisy... More

Went on a Friday night after theater. The restaurant is adjacent to a nightclub, so don't go on the weekend expecting a quiet, romantic evening. Place has a young, hip but classy vibe and the food is very good for the price point, plus the large portions. Nice wine list at good pricing and cocktails are good, as well as... More

We were seated promptly. The waiter was friendly and put in our order on a iPad so it went immediately to the kitchen. He brought our drinks quickly. I had a grilled cheese sandwich, a tomato soup and French fries and shared a fruit plate as well. My husband had the French toast. I am sure my order sounds boring... More

NYE and we expected the worst only because of how busy the restaurant/kitchen could be, but the wait-staff and kitchen did an admirable job keeping up with everything! Beet salad and roasted chicken were yummy and the short-rib is a must! A definite go-to for us when we're in the area.

We ate at Cafeteria 15L on December 29 with a party of 10. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. We had drinks, appetizers, soups, salads, main dishes, kids meals, and desserts. All parts of the order came out quickly. The service was excellent and friendly. I can't recommend this restaurant more highly.

Located directly across from the Residence Inn. Menu is diverse and preparation consistent. Service was a bit slow; not sure if this could be accreditted to the large Christmas party that was being catered to. I had the ahi tuna salad and my husband had the turkey burger. Both were good. We have dined here several times over the years... More

We were a little worried that this would be a "cafeteria", not to worry. Excellent, well priced choices. Amazing desserts. Good french onion soup (something I usually use to judge overall). Will definitely return

Cold as in temperature...turn on the heat a vicious draft swept through the door and we were so cold I huddled over a hot tea as we enjoyed a fantastic seared ahi tuna salad, wedge salad and chicken tortilla soup of the day. Server was professional but not as welcoming as I expected. The Christmas decorations are spectacular as is... More

We had brunch today with a group of 11 people. Service was great and fast, especially considering how large our group was. Food was fantastic. Lots of us enjoyed breakfast skillets, which were huge! I had the beet salad which was wonderful. They didn't even charge an 18% automatics gratuity for our large group, which is pretty standard these days.

Thank BrenHen70
