Went to 15ria with a couple of friends who love food more than I do. So when we get together, watch out! Ha ha, just kidding. But it is always fun to go out for food with them. 

Here’s something else — you can bring your own wines (corkage fee applies). 

  • Food: For the table, we ordered the $3.50 sides of Lobster Mashed Potatoes and Mac and Cheese.  Two of us ordered the Grilled Steak and Arugula Salad (Balsamic Apples, Chevre cheese, crispy onions, port vinaigrette) and the other ordered Smoked Beef Brisket (Ciabatta bread, Fontina Cheese, caramelized red onions, roasted tomato mayonnaise).  I liked the steak salad — it was light and I felt like it was healthy.  We all tried the brisket sandwich was good and very creamy.  I agreed with the friend who said it needed salt.  It was cooked well though.  The Lobster potatoes were very good, but the star of the meal was the mac and cheese.  So creamy, bacony, and smokey — YUM!  I would definitely order that mac and cheese again!  And I can see craving it too!

  • Service: Good, but our server was way too attentative.  We were trying to catch up and he kept trying to clear plates that we were clearly working on.  Then when we said we were working on it, he asked about dessert. 
  • Atmosphere:  It was casual and they definitely offer the comfort food. 
  • Attire: Business casual
  • Price: $$
  • Overall: Their mac and cheese is quite possibly one of the most fantastic items I’ve ever tasted.  The rest of the food was decent, but there’s no doubt I’ll be coming back for the mac and cheese.
