We enjoyed great and reasonable appetizers during their happy hour menu. Fish tacos were especially terrific. Great atmosphere and service too. Loved it!

Second time in the past two weeks where the food was o undercooked. On March 16, 2011, had the pasta dish and the pasta had a distinctive crunch. On March 28, 2011, ordered the broiled trout, the rice also was crunchy. It was returned

Be carefull when you dine at willie g's because your steak could have been the unfortionate one that was thrown at a cook and then picked up off the ground and ended up back your plate.

We went out to dinner acouple of nights ago and went to willy g's we hadn't been there in a while and were so surprised with the remodel they did to the restaurant and the menu had some great new changes. I couldn't believe the happy hour, it's the best in town!!! We had a great time and our server Jeremy was the same guy from when we were there last over a year ago. He is awesome.... He told us about a select club they now offer and we signed up for it and I don't remember all the perks that come with it that he told us about but I can tell we will be eating there a lot more often now

We had a great experience at Willie G's. We were greeted promptly and our server had great app and drink recommendations. We didn't feel rushed or that we were ever waiting for anything. We had the seabass and a New York Strip for dinner and both were cooked perfectly and tasted great. We didn't have any room for dessert, but the presentation was fabulous! Can't wait to go back.

We had dinner here on a Monday evening while visiting our son in Denver. Our visit began when the greeter seated us at a table in the back of the restaurant which was almost empty (1st bad sign) right in front of the kitchen doors. There were many comfy booths available which we even mentioned but was not offered. Then our waitress with an attitude arrived. She handed us a menu, asked if we wanted drinks, and then immediately wanted to know if we wanted appetizers. Kind of hard to decide in 30 seconds after being seated. We suggested that she return with our drinks first to allow us to browse the menu offerings.
We had to ask her if there were any specials. Our main course steak selections were not properly prepared; however, we only sent one back so that we didn't have to deal with her atitude. I will say the caesar salad & garlic mashed potatoes were not bad. When we finally reached the dessert stage of our visit, we noticed the chef peeking through the kitchen door window while our waitress paced wondering when we were going to leave. We were the last ones to leave (which wasn't hard based on a empty place). We were there to enjoy our family and a quality steak. We did enjoy our family but hardly enjoyed a quality dinner. Cherry Creek Grille (which is a much better value) blows this place away. A premier steakhouse.....no way. Never again!

We went here before we saw Wicked and it just made the whole night. The food was great. I had some fish and it was not dry or over cooked. It was a special and not on the menu, so I think this chef has quite the pallet and creative hand when it comes to food. I can't wait to see what his next creation is. I wonder if he teaches classes ant where I heard the was a rumor that he does.

The new design is very bright and new aged. I like it much better then the fish on the walls. The chef's specials are to die for wish I could eat here every day. Just a little expensive. But worth the splurg once in a while.

A friend and I had lunch here. We had heard good things about it so decided to try it. The food was okay, nothing special, but not bad either. We got back to work and both of us were sick for the rest of the afternoon. We both called the restaurant and talked to a couple of different people. They couldn't have cared less! The response was basically "who cares". I was amazed at their lack of responsibility and professionalism. Will never eat here again!

Remember me when you sit down and the waiter trys to get you to order a cocktail followed by a salad or soup, then there is a push if you are at lunch they will try to get you to order off the dinner menu. It never stops. It's not a little pushy, it's prevasive. It drives me nuts. Since we take clients there, when we are approached by the salesman/waiter, we tell them to drop the sales job and just bring us water. We'll let you know what we decide. If they tell you the cost of the special, that would be amazing....it doesn't happen. If you don't know which wine to order and ask for help. I guarantee the waiter will select the most expensive wine on the list.

All that said, the salmon is excellent. They have the best brewed tea in Denver. Not the fruitie kind.

We work downtown and have fallen in love with this un-assuming Denver locale. The menu is full of great steaks, seafood specialties, yada yada yada but we tend to order the consistently amazing nightly specials. The service is detailed and high-end but not starchy. It's hard to find "professional" servers anymore with all the restaurants populated by peppy yet unskilled twenty-something collegiate part-timers. G's has apparently found those few professionals in town and delivers an outstanding dining "experience", blending great food and professional service, that is rare to find.

Came in for dinner with two friends the other night and we were greeted by a server at the door. She kind of gave us the up and down look (we were in jeans and tees) and seated us at a corner both in the back of the restaurant; out of view. Our server was in his mid twenties, a bit scruffy, and seemed energetic at first then seemed as if he were just reciting the same thing he would say to every table; in fact we overheard him talking with another table and it was literally a script. We had calamari, soaked in grease, I had their cowboy ribeye special with lobster that the server told us about. The steak was overcooked (medium well.. i wanted medium rare) and the sever didn't even apologize. The manager of the establishment brought out the steak and seemed pretty uncaring about the situation; another young kid. Before we finish our entrees the server asks if we want desert, we tell him we're unsure, and then he immediately drops the bill. We skip on desert tired of this place and look at the bill. The server never told me that the "special" for the evening costs 50.00 dollars. I was furious but said nothing, paid the bill, and left. If you want to wait forever for food prepared wrong, servers that have no life, and a management staff that shrugs this off.. go to Willie G's.

Seafood and steak is a great combination. The best combination in the world. Willie G's is the place to go. If you want to gather with family and friends, go to Willie G's and enjoy the food.

Excellent steaks and I love the shrimp cocktail appetizer! A bit pricey but the downtown environment more than accounts for the price. Good place to go on the 16th St. Mall.

I brought my parents to Willie G's for their anniversary dinner and it was great. I loved the tender steaks and the shrimp was perfect. My parents made it a tradition to start going their for their anniversary every year.

We arrived to the 16th St Mall by cab. We we're staving so Willie G's looked like an inviting place. The menu was available in the lobby with prices. Once inside we we're seated at the back of bar area. Probably because of our hiking attire. The service from the staff was excellent and very professional. We did suspect the pricing was just a tad higher than advertised however it was worth a few extra. I had the Almond Trout with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. We had an overall great dining experience. The staff was also very through in giving us directions to the best night spots. We were there on a Wednesday night.

In Denver for a week long convention, I was excited to try the local restaurants. Based on the reviews on the CitySearch site, we tried Willie G's last night, and could not have been more pleased. The restaurant is very easy to find, right on the 16th Street Mall, and we were seated right away by a very cordial hostess. The restaurant is very comfortable, done in dark hues, but what was truly the best feature was our server, Bobby. She was polite, friendly, and very knowledgeable of not only the menu selections, but also of the extensive wine list and which wine would compliment our selections. The red snapper was delicious, as was the sirloin, both were cooked to perfection. Again our server was the epitome of professionalism, appearing immediately when we finished or needed a refill, but never hovering. We hope to return soon.

I enjoyed the food, but I guess I didn't enjoy the waiter constantly trying to drive up the bill with our group. It seemed like every dish had one or two options for how it was prepared, which in one way is nice, but he was really pushing them. The one girl who ordered her fish breaded ended up paying an extra $12 for it. To be fair I asked the waiter about that one afterwards, and he assured us he mentioned there was a "slight up-charge" for this.

On a lighter note, I actually saved the receipt and the $12 bread-crumbs are an ongoing joke now!

The food is tasty but a bit over priced for the end product-- especially with Oceanaire down the street.

The happy hour is great for the $.50 cent oysters but the service is a bit lacking. The host/hostess staff can be downright rude.

I am going to try it one more time before I completely write it off.

On Monday night, my husband and I went to Willie G's for my birthday. A friend had recommended it. It surpassed our expectations. The food, service and atmosphere were wonderful. It is rare to find all three in one location.

My husband's steak was seasoned and cooked perfectly. I had the Nut Crusted Halibut and it could not have been better. Our waiter recommended both.

We will definitely be returning.

Went to dinner at Willie's last Friday night with my girlfriend. Was really looking forward to it since she loves seafood and it was supposed to be romantic. It definitely fell short of my expectations. For one, it wasn't romantic. It was loud. As loud as a diner. Maybe it was because the celings were low or all the fixtures are wood, but it was loud. The food was also not very impressive for what you paid for. Her crab quesadilla was pretty decent, but my bacon-wrapped mango-BBQ sauced shrimps were not all that impressive. They didn't seem all that fresh and didn't have the zing I would of expected. My vegetables were also overcooked, not quite boiled to death like at a retirement home, but definitely on the soggy side. To top it off, I ordered their local IPA beer and it tasted more like an ESB (yes, I am a beer snob).

The service was impeccable however, but I would rather go to a diner and get what I pay for next time.

If your downtown looking for a good restaurant, keep walking past this one. They told us 20 minute wait which turned into 60 minutes. The service started out good enough. She brought over 2 bottels of wine and asked if we wanted to sample so we did, then felt obligated to have a glass only wasn't told $9 for 1/4 of a glass. After we we served she only came back once , then totally ignored us. She was nice enough but when your paying good money for dinner, you want service.
The food was so-so. Overpriced for what you get. My son had pasta alfredo which was gross. My fish was dry and tastless. Maybe the steaks are good but w all had seafood and it wasn't good. I do not recommend this restaurant. Not recommended for family dining. We don't mind paying alot for dinner as long as it's worth it.

Wow, was I impressed. I went there for my anniversary and my wife and i were blown away. I had the filet and my wife had the halibut.They were cooked perfectly. The service was even better the server paid attention to detail without being obtrusive. They even sent us champagne! We went to the Buell afterwards and it only took 5 mins to walk there.

So the $$ isn't really correct, but the high price is well worth coming to this restaurant. I had $49 crab legs and salad and my husband had the steak - very very good. Service terrific. I never wanted to go to Willie G's cause I thought it was cheesy from the outside view, but GO INSIDE - amazing place. Bring a date. Not really a kid place.

I recently decided upon Willie G's for a first date after doing some research and reading reviews on this site. Upon arrival our reservations on this Saturday night were confirmed and we were immediately seated. Wine and dinner specials were immediately explained with prompt friendly service. Water was kept topped off and all was up to expectations. The food was a little delayed but this further facilitated conversation and was not unreasonable for the quality of the meal delivered. The restaurant offers an excellent environment for a nice evening out and facilitates conversation extremely well. They offer Great food, superb service, and a romantic environment. I will come back to this restaurant. Thanks Willie G's for a great first date!

After an afternoon after the Phantom with my wife, we thought we cap the evening off with great food at Willie G's, based on the review and recommendations from this site. The salmon was prepared perfectly and our server was very nice. However, ordering the filet mignon special, prepared with crab, bernaise sauce, mashed potatoes, and asparagus left a lot to be desired. The dish had to be sent back TWICE for meat that was ill-prepared. The first two times my steak my prepared bloody rare when it was supposed to be medium. The final time it came back well-done. The crab was cold and the potatoes gummy. We were not impressed, to say the least, even after crediting us $35 for the meal. We were not there for a 'free' meal. I will be hard-pressed to dine at Willie G's in the future.

We celebrated our Anniversary at Willie G's recently and were very impressed with our experience there. The food was delicious, fresh and well-prepared from the unique spinach salad, and the portobello mushroom appetizer, to the Alaskan King Crab Leg dinner, to the creme Brule dessert.
Ryan, our server, was friendly, very familiar with the menu, as well as efficient. It was a very special evening.

We go to Willie G's several times a year. It is always a very special evening out and we have never been disappointed in the food, service or atmosphere. Money well spent when the occassion calls for something extra nice and rewarding.

Willie G's has become my favorite. I have been there at least 25 time (or more). The service is always top notch and the food is to die for. The Buffalo Filet or Ribeye are great and all of the Shrimp dishes are great! Dessert... mmm... cheesecake, chocolate cake... Great way to go for a great night out!!

The best time i've ever had in Denver. We had oysters on the patio and people watched. We then had the surf and turf, man the lobster melted in my mouth. We then finished the meal off with the turtle pie, heated with ice cream. Service was fantastic, i can't wait to go back.

This restaurant is one of the few really good restaurants left that knows how to serve a classy meal.

Oysters are $0.50 during happy hour (3-7PM). They also have a great selection of Single Malts and wines.

I love having dinner here before the Symphony or Ballet. I recommend the Halibut with the Crab topping. Big lumps of backfin crab meat, reminds me of the restaurants back home in Baltimore.

Service is excellent, matching the food preparation and decor.

On the reccomendation of a friend, my husband and I visited Willie G.'s steak & seafood house for dinner last weekend. We were quite pleased by the atmosphere and extremely attentive staff right from the beginning. The meal turned out to be one of the best we have ever had! My husband had the surf & turf (lobster tail & a petite filet mignon), and I chose a halibut entree that was smothered in avocados & mushrooms with garlic butter. We cannot wait to return, it was one of the best overall experiences we have had in a restaurant.

Pros: patio seating 16th st, casual attire okay, great seafood

I'm glad I didn't take what ccuneo wrote seriously. This is my new favorite seafood restaurant. I've never had a better dish than the halibut. That avocado sauce was to die for. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and their impressive wine list. My husband had the ribeye and said that it was better than the Palm or Ruth's Chris - and less expensive too!!! I'll definately be back.

After walking in the door we knew we were in for a treat. Harold at the bar started us off with the Willie tini, absolut peppar vodka with an oyster and cocktail sauce. Outstanding. We had a wonderful server. My husband had the halibut and I had the surf and turf. We had the dessert special pumpkin cheese cake.

I have never had worse service or more horrible food in downtown Denver! Both the steaks and the seafood were terrible. The waiter was inattentive and refused to remove food that had to be sent back multiple times from our bill. The price was way out of line with the poor quality and the bad service!

Located on the 16th Street Mall, this downtown hot spot's dark, rich woods and soft, ambient lighting create a cozy dining area conducive to long meals and whispered conversations. The menu features an extensive…
