Overall a nice restaurant Great service and the food was tasty. I wasn’t sure if I was to cut the Avacado toast or pick it up and eat it. The cheddar grits were great I wish there would have been a little more in the cup.
sara was our waitress and she was FABULOUS! she checked in on us frequently but also gave my friend and i space to chat. the manager even came over to greet us and we told him how much we loved the weekly bloody mary and our waitress.
Awesome place. Great food, great service, and a great time. Will come again!
Had a really nice dinner here before a show at HMAC. The three of us shared the baked brie and Brussels sprouts as apps and both were great. We got two of the wagyu burgers and one short ribs for dinner. Everything tasted great. The only ding is that our burgers were a little over done but still good. The cocktails and service were very good as well.
French Toast Bread Pudding Bites are AMAZING!
The food & drinks were delicious. We went for brunch and had wonderful, friendly & attentive servers. Will definitely return.
A very swanky little cafe in the middle of Harrisburg. I enjoyed the brie appetizer. I thought is very creative. I also had the special fried chicken sandwich with french toast. It was a sweet and crunchy celebration of flavor. My husband had the hailbut which he enjoyed. I thought everything was priced fairly. If you went to a larger city like Philly or NYC, you'd be paying way more for this quality of food.
Love these pairings! We have been to two and the food and drinks have been fun and delicious. I appreciated the information we learned about the different beers and the history. I only wish that we were able to drive how long we stayed. We had finished our courses faster than other tables but all tables were served at the same time, instead of when they were ready for the next course. Ended up being there for almost 3 hours and we were expecting to be there about half that time.
But overall, loved it and will be back :)
Attended a beer pairing dinner with prefixed four course menu.. excellent food.. very friendly wait staff.. Hope they have more of these!
The food, service, and experience was excellent! I highly recommend this restaurant for a date night or brunch out.
Our waitress was an absolute delight and very helpful. The food was truly delicious. I had the French toast fried chicken sandwich, a limited time meal. Absolutely worth it! The mimosas were top notch. My friends and I loved it. Needless to say, I think we found our new brunch spot!
Great food! Bloody Mary was fanstasic and the food was perfect! Great service as well. A must visit.
Our server was very cool and knowledgeable about the menu. Best brunch in the Burg!
Brunch today was fabulous as usual. I always enjoy your bloody Mary’s 😁 thank you to your staff for serving well during these unusual times.
My daughter and I enjoyed brunch at 1500. Service was excellent and the menu choices made it difficult to choose. We loved our food!
Brunch at 11:00 am took awhile to come. Crab Cake Eggs Benedict was very good, as were the cornmeal pancakes.
Less good was the California omelet, maybe it had waited a bit too long in the kitchen or couldn't compete with the omelettes I make at home.
I like the place, the ambiance, the photographs on the wall, and the diverse and interesting crowd. I don't like the wait - took over an hour from order to food - not blaming the wait staff - they seemed on top of it (and they checked in often).
There was plenty of outdoor seating, friendly service, and great food.
Food was amazing, service was great!
I just found out about this place 2 months ago and have gone just about every weekend since! The Huevos Rancheros is amazing, and don't even get me started on the bread pudding bites! 10/10 would recommend the big bottom mimosas as well.
Very nice, modern feel to the place with a creative menu.
Excellent food choices and delicious breakfasts had by all in our party. The only downside: very drafty/cold where we were seated.
We went for the four-course restaurant week meal and really enjoyed our evening.
We always love us some Cafe 1500. Great Restaurant Week menu.
Were there for Restaurant Week. First course (tofu and also scallops ceviche) was a little bland for our tastes. Tofu was a little soft. The scallops were tough, almost like a piece of pork. Second course of sausage stuffed banana peppers was also a little bland, but the spice level was nice. Third course of tiger shrimp and grits was very good! The seasoning on the shrimp was perfect and the portion size was pretty large. The grits were rich and good. If you aren't a big eater, you may find the grits to be heavy since it's a fairly large serving. I didn't mind, but the other person didn't finish theirs. Dessert was excellent! Try the chocolate olive oil cake!
Each course was excellent especially the tiger shrimp entree!
Beautiful restaurant visually. Open, airy, and comfortable.
Food presentation was excellent.
Food was delicious.
Wine and cocktails surperb.
Bottle beer only, wish there were drafts available.
Vegetarian options available.
We will return again and again.
Awesome experience! We love the tasting menus with wine pairings events!!
This is a nice restaurant, with good food and great service. I would like to see a return to plants on the tables, specials on the chalkboard, and a complete dinner menu.
The food and service were great! We went on a night when there was live jazz. The music was fantastic and was a positive contribution to the atmosphere!
Food at Cafe 1500 is always great. Fun drinks and wine. Really enjoyed the live music. Wait staff was attentive and professional.
I’m a big fan of your brunch.
Just enough food.
Amazing!! The atmosphere is so chill and nice and the food is just so great. My favorite brunch spot in Harrisburg.
Everything was great!
Regrettably my husband and I had the worst service we may have possibly ever had while out this past Sunday at brunch. The drinks and food were delicious (they always are), but the service was so terrible it really made for an overall poor experience. It took more than 10 minutes for our server to come over to our table after the host seated us to bring us water and take our drink order. Then once they took the food order, another person brought over our meals. The server came back once, immediately after we had received the food, to ask how it was. After that, the server never came over to check on us, nor did they ask if we needed refills or anything else. I had to put my credit card on the table for them to realize we wanted our check. We were there at a relatively slow time, only to leave 1.5 hours later and not because it was our choice. It was my husband's first time there and he does not want to give it a second try. I will try to convince him otherwise, as I know Cafe 1500 is generally very good and they have a great Happy Hour, but this experience can be summed up simply - first impressions matter.
Delicious meal and service. I'd heard great things about brunch at Cafe 1500, and it did not disappoint.
Brunch was fantastic! Big bottom mimosas is the way to go.
Delicious brunch...reservation required. Service was great and food was outstanding
Took my grandmother here for brunch — food was exemplary and the staff was accommodating and thoughtful. Ambience is open and industrial, and the energy was buzzing during brunch hour. Street parking was easy to find as it's not in central downtown. Would highly recommend.
Neat littke place, good food, needs a better wine selection.
