Our recent KU grad daughter recommended 715 as a good option when we were in town before the KU basketball game. We could not have been more thrilled! Outstanding and unique craft cocktails, super happy hour, and divine food. Be sure to try the Roasted dates with Romesco sauce (starter). OMG! And the chili verde was perfect on such a cold night. The Campanella pasta with sausage and mascarpone cheese (are you kidding me?) was over the top. Finally, our server (wish I could recall her name) was delightful – inviting, attentive and helpful. I can’t wait to go again!
Have been here several times for light bites and drinks, 1st time for dinner. Saturday night date night and we were seating right on reservation time. Excellent gin martini and "special" dink. Menu is spot on- just the right number of options and specials were great. Had the garlic shrimp and spaghetti based on the server's recommendation and it was great. Spouse had sea bass special- which was a novel preparation -and my forkful was excellent. Service was very good and we will be back to try other items on the menu and perhaps Sunday brunch.
We had a party of four on a Monday night. We were in a quiet spot - last table at the back of the restaurant - and had a very enjoyable meal. I had the tuna spaghetti, which was quite nice, and two of the party had the lasagne, which they raved about. A number of us started with half portions of the 715 salad - it was excellent.
Wonderful eclectic Italian bistro in the heart of downtown Lawrence Kansas. service, food and atmosphere were wonderful...surrounded by over 100 votive candles that set for a laid back ambience...a perfect filling meal of lasagne and Chicken Parmesan after a cool autumn college football game...
Went drove out to 715 for our Anniversary Dinner. We were thinking this was going to be a quiet place but seemed very loud. The menu was a little but pricier than we usually go for but for the special occasion we would look past that. I Ordered the Special "Lobster Ravioli" for $22 I was expecting more than 7 pieces of pasta. For Spending $120 I was expecting to leave full and we did not - this is not our kind of restaurant.
Tried a peartini and it was delicious. The service was excellent and the food was fantastic. The cauliflower soup is outstanding. The staff does a great job of making you feel welcome. With so many choices in Lawrence for dining, 715 is dependable for its excellent food and drink choices in a great atmosphere.
We went for Sunday happy hour and ordered the sausage pizza, pork meatballs, and the dates and chorizo (I forget the name) to share. All we're awesome and perfect size for the 3 of us. We also ordered the ricotta donuts which were amazing. The only downside was that the service was a bit slow. I would definitely go again and recommend it to others.
Walked next door from the Elderidge Hotel to celebrate our anniversary. Candlelit, exposed stone, historical building. Low key, professional service. Very loud ambient. Lovely charred califlower. Steak was perfection; very flavorful for a fillet. Nice spanish wine. Dessert was blackberry sponge cake with Earl Grey sauce. Beautiful night!
We are from out of town and always look forward to eating at 715. It was a big disappointment this time. The service was excellent but the food was not. Always before the pasta looked and tasted homemade, the greens looked local, not out of a bag. I had Margarita pizza. I was expecting fresh slices of tomatoes and fresh basil leaves. The crust was excellent but the tomatoes were some sort of slabs of canned tomatoes and the basil must have come out of a tube because it was just lines of green across the pizza. Sorry to say we will no longer recommend 715 or eat there again.
Have heard so much about 715 and finally had the opportunity to have a special brunch there. Unfortunately, wait staff and poor food were not what I expected! There were two female wait staff and we happened to get the clueless one (the good one actually saw issues and tried to help one time!). It took 25 minutes for her to take our order, she never brought one beverage, just very nonchalant and really acted like we were putting her out!
One meal (the hash) was very good. The other meals had elements that ruined the dishes. My omelet was burned on all edges, and potatoes were also burned (½ inedible). We had to ask - twice - for the crostini that was to accompany the classic breakfast and the sausage was even too hard to cut with a knife (burned on one side, not cooked on the other)! Potatoes were burned on this entree also. Yes, the waitress did offer to substitute a meat -ha!- as she was clearing our plates! Maybe if clueless waitress had visited the table to check, before clearing our plates, she would have known there was a problem. Needless to say, very disappointed in our experience at 715. Had made a reservation for a large (8 person) dinner next weekend. After this poor first trial, I have canceled. We will go to another establishment that I can count on the food AND the wait staff.
