Mixed review here. We have been here twice this month. Service was excellent each time. The burger was very good. The nachos were also very good with thick, crispy chips that did not get soggy. The California roll was average and the Cesar salad dressing had too much lemon for our taste. We will go back but not our first... More

this is a local bistro that caters to everyone with great food and great service. Chef Keith does an incredible job with entrees that you transport you to different countries. Last time we had duck this good was in Paris.

We met friends here for drinks, and since I hadn't eaten, appetizers. Buffalo wings and nachos. Both excellent, and great portions of each. Great service, and a decidedly sports bar atmosphere. Check it out!

Great dinner last night at 15 Walnut. The menu has recently changed and has interesting new options. The somewhat frequent menu changes are great because they can make you feel that you're at a new restaurant. We don't have a lot to pick from in Hamilton so I really appreciate the changes. I'm glad this restaurant doesn't offer a club... More

Is the club sandwich an endangered species? But I digress. Farm to table has become a popular point of sale for many local establishments. Serenity Group makes an aggressive point in this regard at their Hamilton stop, 15 Walnut. But I guess when you declare eminent domain on a former local thrift store and "packie" you need need to appeal... More

We have been going to 15 Walnut a couple times a year for the past couple of years. This past weekend we invited another couple to dinner there. I wish I could remember our server's name, but she was fabulous - extremely friendly, helpful, and not to over-the-top. She definitely was a pro, helping us with answers about the menu... More

I just had time for a martini but what a great one! If we had not committed to another place for dinner, I would have loved to stick around for dinner. The menu looked fantastic. Though set in a strip mall, you would never know it, once inside. Looking forward to going back.

Don't let the strip mall location fool you. This place is beautifully built out and very comfortable- whether at the bar or at a table. Part of the multi unit Serendipity group that designs unique eateries catering to local tastes, I go there often and have never had a bad experience. The bar is my favorite spot. The draft beer...
