“Mediocre”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Impressive menu but the food wasn't too exciting. The location was good for watching the people and occasional alien go by.

Eating here with a group of 8 was quite enjoyable. Food was average to above average...wait staff was very attentive. Good place for business dinner.

“Expected more”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

First off it has an awesome location downtown Denver with parking garage. The decor is totally amazing done in black and red through out. Nice bar with few TV's for your watching pleasure. The service was good but expected a little better. We came became because we heard they one of the best steaks in Denver. So sad to say it was just an ok steak. We have eaten at almost every steakhouse in Denver and it wasn't even close the best. It was really good just not the best. We also tried the bacon wrapped scallops. We also did not care for the bacon. It had really heavy smokey flavor that took away from the flavor of the scallops. The baked potatoe I had was perfectly cooked and was very good. Clam chowder was a little thin for our liking and lacked flavor. The bread they serve is off the charts with garlic butter, amazing. They did give my wife free birthday Creme Brulee and it was good except the top was a tiny bit burnt but still good. Over all the service was good the food was good and we had a great time, unfortunately we expected more.

“Seafood on 16th Street Mall”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

If you're looking for an above average meal on the 16th Street Mall, then you can't go wrong at Willie G's. The restaurant's atmosphere is as nice... but please keep in mind in overlooks the mall area and you may be subjected to views of the Mall Rats. The dinnere we had was very good. I thought, however, it was funny that our waiter described the Arctic Char as a fish from South America. lol. He was young and obviously not a wait pro, but he was a good guy and took very good care of us. I give a thumbs up!

“Great food, Great Service, Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

I ate here this past weekend for dinner with a group of my girlfriends. The food was delicious and our server was absolutely one of the best servers I have had. He constantly checked on us and offered his opinion on certain food items since we were struggling to pick something to eat....all the items sounded delicious. At the end of the night when it came time to pay our bill, when asked if he could split the check 6 ways, he was super fast! I would say 30-45 seconds he had the one bill split. No hesitations no grumbling.
