Great coffee, eggs and bacon! Plus more creative options such as the trout benedict! Yummy

Worth the drive from KC
We love 715. We are from KC and we love making the trip to Lawrence for this gem. The specials are always hard to resist. They are very well crafted but I find them a bit on the small side. We like to get one of the specials and one of their wonderful pasta dishes, which are huge, and share. I'd say this this place is our second favorite in the area behind only Justus Drugstore in Smithville.

I really like the atmosphere
I really like the atmosphere here, but it is very noisy....sometimes hard to carry on a conversation. The service was good and food well done. We especially like the rosemary bread as an appetizer.

Great evening with excellent
Great evening with excellent food and friends. The pasta is amazing, the choices are always full of the tried and true, but with an excellent daily menu. If you're craving a repeat dish, it's there, if you want something new you can have that, too. It is also the one restaurant in town that has never disappointed us with the desserts. They get just as much attention as the main dishes. Really good coffee as well. :-) 715 is a great date night, perfect for a GNO, good for dinner with friends, and our kids love it.

When they checked us in, they in fact cancelled our reservation. Took an email to Open Table to rectify this. I liked the food, but my husband thought his duck sausage dish was dry. Nice smoked trout crostini. Some nice Scandinavian food directions plus others.

Really enjoyed energetic atmosphere
Really enjoyed energetic atmosphere with above average food. The menu was varied but not over whelming. The wine list had some nice selections but wasn't over priced or a "snob" list. Service was good. We were on our way to an event and didn't want to linger. It was easy in and easy out. Just perfect for dining before another activity.

Grilled shrimp was excellent!
Grilled shrimp was excellent! Perfect sized dish, wouldn't want any smaller.
Seemed a little too loud. We were seated in the back which was fine but noise level a little high and tough to talk and not feel like you were talking really loud.

One of the best restaurants in the greater KC area. It's the only place I eat when I go to Lawrence.

The waitress and staff were warm, welcoming, prompt, and accommodating. The meatballs were fantastic and the food was all fresh and delicious. The ambiance was warm and campy...very interesting with an intimacy to it. They aimed to please their customers.
Just try not to sit under a fan there. They can't regulate the air flow and it was the only down side of the restaurant.

Second time in a week I had dinner there and both times top notch. We had a great Spanish Rioja for dinner it was very affordable. Wine was a bit warm but not unusual in American restaurants.Brunch on Sunday was wonderful. Being someone who lives in California I only wish 715 was closer.

Enjoyed 715 on two of our three nights in Lawrence. Love the bar staff who are artists in their craft. Small portions outstanding. Pasta and steaks better than steak restaurants. Never disappointed.

Great cocktails! We got into
Great cocktails! We got into Lawrence late and managed to get nice pizzas and cocktails despite their being ready to close up: we were very grateful. Second time we reserved, and had a great time--had cocktails, good California rosés, and a variety of appetizers. The restaurant has life and character, and the service was friendly.

715 cares about food and service
Every item we had at dinner earlier this week was wonderful - perfectly cooked halibut special (delivered from the ocean that morning!), a tasty sausage/lentil dish, appetizers, nice wine. Carefully blended flavors and textures. 715 is simply different than most places- the owners are there,staff is well-trained and everyone cares about the customer's experience. On a weeknight, we were in and out within an hour with multiple courses and time to savor both the food and the lively atmosphere. Although we've considered 715 a "special occasion" restaurant in the past, we plan to start going more regularly now. For about $75 including tax and tip, we had a spectacular dinner for two, a great value. Be sure to make a reservation.

Pretty good prom dinner
While the food was great, it was really busy and seemed understaffed. Service was slow and it was very loud, but our waitress was great and the ambience was good.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
I remember when 715 first opened, we tried it 2-3 times and it was ho-hum. But the owner listened to the customers and it kept getting better & better. Today it is one of the premier restaurants in Lawrence. I love the diversity of the food and the recipes and the LOCAL

Simplicity and moderation may not be what you're looking for when dining in Lawrence. If that is the case don't bother visiting 715 Mass. For anyone who has an evening free and want to experiance a wonderful dining experiance I recomend trying this resarunt when you are next in Lawrence.

Lawrence's best overall
Consistently good food with local ingredients. This is Lawrence's best overall dining experience. Regular menu is supplemented by a specials menu that offers fresh and creative options. A bit noisy when the restaurant is full. Reserve an early timeslot if you want a quieter experience in this trendy restaurant.

Much more sophisticated than the Lawrence I remember. Really enjoyed the space with the open kitchen and the nice variety of the menu. Would definitely recommend!

Not for the traditiinal diner
If you like goat cheese on several things and pizza without mozzarella, then you'll probably like 715.
6/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We decided to have an intimate dinner after our wedding and 715 was perfect. Special cocktails, great specials and a classic dinner menu. Lots of vegetarian options and delicious desserts. It was amazing.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
When in Lawrence,
715 is recommended for dinner or lunch. I haven't tried weekend brunch yet but am willing to bet it's a winner too. 715 might let you think you're not in Kansas anymore, too.

I'd Go Back
My wife and I enjoyed our meal and the waitress was very informative and attentive.
6/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
yummy, as ever
one of my faves and a much-requested reservation for out-of-towner guests, 715 does not disappoint! Amazing depth of local and in-season offerings that showcase technique and fresh foods.
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service!
The service was great, and the waiter didn't rush us which was really nice. The food was excellent! I would go as far to say that this is my favorite restaurant in Lawrence.

My pork chop was wonderful.
My pork chop was wonderful. One of the best I have had. My date is a vegetarian so her selection was fairly limited as far as side dishes. When the vegetable of the day had bacon in it (it was delicious for my side!), it says there probably could have been more for vegetarians.
Service was good - very friendly. Even warned us about the bacon/vegetable. A little on the noisy side for my liking but going to the back of the restaurant helped. Still, the restaurant is very nicely done inside.

My wife and I had a wonderful evening at 715. The food was unique and great. My wife loved the cabbage roll made with local ingredients. I had a house made sausage that was spectacular. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Lawrence.

A great spot
This was the second time I've been to 715 and both times have been wonderful. They have a unique (in a good way) menu and the scene is energetic and refreshing. The staff was wonderful! Unfortunately on busy nights you may wait a few for the food but it's completely worth it!! I will certainly be going back in the near future!

Great food, wonderful service.
The food is fantastic, and the service has always been great in our experiences (10-12 visits). However, the restaurant is not large, and is styled like many restaurants: glass and stone. There are hard surfaces everywhere. While this looks great, it makes for a VERY loud dining experience. To speak across the table, I was nearly yelling. Very difficult to carry on a conversation. Some rugs on the floor, wall-hangings, etc. could make enormous acoustic improvements.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, small portions
Service was so-so, but I think our server was new. The food was outstanding, and i think it was mostly locally grown. The setting was really cool, and we enjoyed the decorations. My only complaint was that I left hungry. For the money, I didn't get much food. Next time, I'll have to order an appetizer as well.

Great for a Friday Night Date!
My boyfriend came into town and wanted to try a local spot. We found 715 online and showed up a couple hours before our reservation for Happy Hour. The drink specials were great, and as we were finishing our drinks, a table opened up and they brought us inside for dinner WAY before our reservation time. The interior has exposed brick walls, and vintage lighting. The service was excellent, and the food was fresh and local. The daily specials menu is the way to go, and the drink menu is on its own level. I cannot have many "girly drinks" because of allergies to fruit, and there were several unique cocktail options including one with pork-infused bourbon! I will definitely be back for Happy Hour or dinner!

Best Food in Big Larry
715 is an amazing restaurant. The food is local, hand-crafted, simply, and fantastic. The staff is professional and friendly. The dedication of owner/operators Matt and Michael shows in everything done. Molto bene!

I took 2 friends to lunch to celebrate their birthdays and I was having a difficult time choosing from the many restaurants on Mass. St in Lawrence. So I asked my son who is a graduate of KU for recommendations and he suggested 715. The menu had a lot of options but was not overwhelming, the seating was nice and we could was easily carry on a conversation without raising our voices over the noise level. We also "splurged" with a glass of wine for lunch and the choices were great without being too pricey. I will definitely go again and recommend 715 as a good place to dine.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was perfect. Good times celebrating my husband's birthday.

715 is a 10
Excellent KC strip. Happy hour appetizers and drinks were excellently priced and the chocolate rum mousse topped the night off. Excellent choice of wines ranging from $20. This is a great restaurant.

Went on a whim, will be going back
We were going to be in Lawrence, so I went to Open Table to make reservations at Teller's, only to find it seems to have closed. I had never heard of 715, but I gave it a shot and was very happy I'd done so. I had an item on the special menu, pasta with sausage and butternut squash. My friend had some sort of rabbit and ravioli dish. Both were excellent. We also shared a cheese plate and a chocolate-rum moose dessert -- yummy. I was particularly impressed with their Green Line drink -- vodka, lime juice, cucumber juice, serrano pepper and mint. I want another one right now! :)

Worth A 2 Hour Drive!
We had the most incredible experience dining at 715! The food was absolutely incredible, and our server was a doll! We had the Rabbit Involtini, and it was simply delicious. We live near Wicita, and were in Lawrence for the Mother Earth News fair, but we have already made plans to drive back up, just to eat at 715. It was that good. I wonder if we could eat breakfast and then go back for lunch...and then maybe dinner...does that make me a food stalker? Oh well!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food and service
First, our waitress was very friendly and helpful. She genuinely seemed to care about our experience, rather than just angling for a tip. Second, the food here is second to none. My wife is a vegetarian and too often higher end dining neglects this population. My wife and I enjoy going to 715 and eating tapas-style. We share a cheese plate, share some baguette and salad, and then get individual dishes for our third course. Third, the cocktails here are marvelous. I often have to whip out my cell phone to determine what an ingredient is. What do I not need to look up? That would be how awesome the cocktail is. Overall, this was an amazing experience from beginning to end.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
It's hard to go wrong ordering the KC strip with an egg on top. I'm not a spinach fan, but the sauce is excellent. Good wine selection.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great experience.
Living in the KC area, I often forget about the great restaurant options in Lawrence. This is one of my favorites because they allow outside wine ($15 corkage). So, with bottles in hand, I brought two newbies to 715. Everyone enjoyed the food (the seasonal squash/sausage ravioli was awesome). Our waitress (Erin?) was engaging and respectful of our desire for a longer dining timeframe. I can't wait to return.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Eat here with some regularity but also take out-of-town guests when there's a chance and the food and service are always top-notch. 715 is worth stopping in for a cocktail and small bite to eat, brunch/lunch or dinner - there isn't anything they haven't done well in the years since opening.
