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
Neat littke place, good food, needs a better wine selection.
Very nice airy space. Very attentive server who was nice and friendly. Food was excellent, I had the pork belly benedict, my wife had the California omelette. Both were delicious. I also had a Bloody Mary with a little extra spicy. It was exceptionally good. We would gladly go again if back in Harrisburg.
Patrick is amazing! The restaurant is well managed The service staff is well educated. Always a great experience.
Great Sunday brunch. Excellent Bloody Mary!
One of the best brunch options in town! Atmosphere is great, love the arts vibe.
Everything we ordered was excellent, from apps, entrees, drinks & dessert. Great spot for brunch!
They aren’t kidding when they say Big Bottom Mimosas! You certainly get your money out of it. The food was tasty & the service was great! We had a great time!
Our waitress was amazing! The mimosas were perfect. We had a great time just sitting in Cafe 1500. Will definitely be back.
We love Cafe 1500 for something different for either brunch or dinner. The staff is always friendly and the food is always good.
Had a wonderful experience. Everything was delicious!
Beautifully plated food that tasted devine! Chef Ethan knows his stuff. Staff was so kind and attentive. Highly recommend Cafe 1500!
Our favorite Brunch place for special occasions.
I ate at Cafe 1500 for the first time on Mother's Day for brunch. All of the wait staff were great, but I have to a shout out to my server ISABELLE. She was warm, friendly, attentive, and efficient. I would have to give her two thumbs up in a circle. Fabulous!
Service food and atmosphere were excellent Bloody Mary was off the hook
We had a lovely meal in a beautiful setting. We like the atmosphere, the friendly wait staff, and the food never disappoints.
Great food and service even though it was busy, food and drinks were delicious.
Was nice to be out
Glad we arrived early as the restaurant filled up quickly after 6 p.m. Not enough wait staff for the evening crowd. Good margaritas, delicious orange and avocado salad. Very nice wait staff who hustled through the crowd. Would go back again, although not on May 5 despite reservations.
We heard great reviews of both the food and drinks and it definitely lived up to the expectations. Will be going back for sure!
Exceptional special event. We had 4 courses of great food with wine pairings " Off the Beaten Path". The kale and chorizo soup was my favorite meal but the others did not disappoint.
The executive chef and manager is friendly and knowledgeable. This was my 6th time, second dinner, and I will be back again!
Thanks for a great time!
The food was insane like sooooo good, every special event they have I always pull the trigger on. It's always an amazing experience, the pairing of gourmet food with incredible wine and cocktails is sooo much fun. They really have an amazing staff!
Husband's 1st time here and my 2nd time. I should have followed my gut and dined elsewhere. The first visit here on Mother's Day 2019 was horrid as far as the meal goes. This visit was exactly the same as for the food. We ordered the french toast bites for the appetizer and they were extremely hard and crunchy. We both ordered the shrimp and grits for our brunch meal. Omgoodness it was absolutely dreadful. The shrimp were actually tasty but the grits..yikes! They were not creamy but more of a thick oatmeal texture and reddish colored I'm assuming from the sun dried tomatoes. The portion was very small. The appearance of the dish was blah and just not appealing. We gave this feedback to the manager (owner?) and he simply responded "yes, the grits are different than normal grits ".
The service was really good which led to at least a 1 star ratings versus zero stars for the food.
We will not return....thanks but no thanks.
The food is outstanding! Best crabcakes I've ever had.
Patrick and the team always deliver a fantastic dining experience. One of my favorite places to dine.
They had no Vegan and were not conducive to assist.
Amazing, delicious food. Service was great. Always enjoy the atmosphere. The smoked salmon benedict is my favorite with the potato cake. I had a reservation for 10am, unable to make it so I requested a later time, we arrived earlier than a later time and they were able to seat us right away.
Quick service, amazing food! Great spot for brunch.
Was here for the Pinot Wine Dinner and everything was amazing. The food/wine pairings could not have been better. The wine was explained by someone who must know everything about wine so it was a great learning experience. Food was even more amazing than usual which is saying something because the food here is always incredibly good. Presentation is important to me and they hit that in a five-star way as well. Thanks again for a great night!! Linda Donnelly
Brunch was ok. But is was better the last time we went. The French Toast bites were extremely disappointing. They were so good the last times there.
Food was just ok. Cheddar grits were not hot when they came out and had a LOT of black pepper in them which overpowered any other flavor. They don't have non dairy creamer which was ok but the coffee was really acidic and not enjoyable. Atmosphere is always cool but the brunch options have been scaled back and it's pricy.
Soooo good!!!! Love this place and the service is always outstanding.
Food and drinks were amazing and service was outstanding, I'll definitely be returning
I did not get what I ordered. The waiter did not check back with us. The heat wasn’t working.
I love this place!!
This was the perfect place for brunch in a safe and socially distant place. The restaurant is very large and open and the food is incredible. Definitely one of the best places for brunch in Harrisburg
