In a true (red &) blue food town, this restaurant stands supreme. All that is amazing about Lawrence is exemplified at 715: local foods, great service, great ambiance, great mid/low-range wine selection and a super creative menu by chef Michael Smith. When I want to show off the city to visiting professors, incoming recruits, or a celebratory date night, I... More

The steak and salad were great coupled with the friendly vibe at this upscale restaurant with outdoor seating for people, friends and pets. Not inexpensive but worth every penny. Everything that happens in Kansas seems to be happening on Massachusetts Avenue in Lawrence where interesting people from around the planet seem to gather day and night. The town attracts visitors...

We drove over from Topeka for a special evening out with our daughters. We wanted a "local" place that served pasta but had cocktails and a wine list for us. I really enjoyed my Tequila Smash which was followed up with a glass of red (from our bottle) that was $7 off since it was Tues. Other cocktail ordered before... More

I love the idea of 715. Local meats processed the old way. Great concept, but it sometimes suffers in the execution. The Good: I do love their pizza and their $7.15 lunch special. You can choose a soup or salad and a pizza, pannini or pasta all for $7.15. The cauliflower soup is outstanding. it's velvety smooth with a ton... More

Another good experience at this Lawrence, KS restaurant. We had reservations for 5 on a Tuesday night....standing room only to get in! We were seated at the back of the restaurant which was out of the traffic flow of the food prep. Food and service were very good, but this restaurant continues to be very noisy and hard for group...

We went to this restaurant on the recommendations on different sites. We were expecting a fine experience but was disappointed. The waitress was unsure of the meal and was very nonchalant about everything. I ordered the schnitzel with cabbage. The "schnitzel" was little more than a frozen pattie thrown into a deep fryer. It was greasy and almost burned---far from... More

Don't be fooled by 715's glamor. There's much glitz, but very little goodness in the food. Three entrées were ordered, and all three were mediocre. The chicken was overcooked and dry, the lasagna appeared as a plate of mush with the taste to match it, and the gnocchi was pasty. In addition to the top dollar for an underwhelming entrée,... More

I first heard about 715 from one of their former employees and chef, Jake Dodds Sloan, a friend of my son I met at a high-end resort deep in Denali National Park a couple years back. Since then, we moved to Lawrence and I have read numerous glowing reviews on Yelp and elsewhere about this Massachusetts Street institution, so we... More

We passed through Lawrence recently and stumbled onto 715. It was a Monday night, and luckily the restaurant was open. Lucky for us that it exceeded our expectations. From a well concocted Aviation cocktail, to a series of prepared meats including a delicious head cheese, a shared plate of "House Links" with parmesan and herbed french sausages, followed by a...

Over priced for poor tasting food. The ambience is typical for Downtown Lawrence, but not worth the visit or the MONEY!
