Diner Reviews
  • "I loved this experience. My husband & I attended dinner here for our 8 year wedding anniversary. We absolutely loved it, the food was good & the service was even better. I couldnt have asked for a better night. Thank you"

  • "Bacon wrapped shrimp amazing. Shrimp in pasta were tiny and clearly frozen. Boston Cyrene pie was also dry and clearly frozen. Would rather goto Legal across the street."

  • "I have eaten at many McCormicks in the US and this one was a surprising disappointment. We had to make multiple requests to our waitress for silverware and drinks. The food was below average in comparison to other M&S. The lobster was extremely overdone and my sons chicken fingers and fries were burnt and had to be sent back. I sadly would not recommend this particular McCormicks."

  • "McCormick and Schmuck is a chain, but did not seem like it. We had dinner here while visiting Boston for our anniversary. My wife and I both had different salmon dishes, and the fish was fresh. The presentation was nice. The staff were helpful, polite and smiling, and even though it's a bit upscale, they were not pretentious. The decor was appropriate for an upscale seafood place. The ambiance is nice for a romantic dinner. Dress is mostly dressy casual, but some people were in over casual clothes. I have no complaints, but really can't rave about it either. It was a good meal in a nice place."

  • "My husband and I were headed to the Boston Opera House and chose this restaurant for an early dinner after a recommendation. We sat in the bar area at 5:00 PM versus the dining room. Very cozy. The waitress was friendly and personable; she was very helpful with selections and recommendations. Did not wait for food or drinks. The Sangria with cucumber and strawberries was light and delicious; the red pepper mashed potatoes and the espresso choc cake was awesome! It's a place we'll definitely would go back if we're in the area again."

  • "The food and drinks were great. We followed our server's suggestions with a few items including the rasberry mule, shrimp kisses, and New York strip with lump crab. However... There was NO AC. It was hotter inside than outside. It made our dining experience incredibly uncomfortable. Our waiter even acknowledged how hot it was, but did nothing about it (offer to move us, maybe bring a fan over, comp drinks)! Don't go until the AC is fixed. We couldn't wait to get out of there."

  • "Went here for our 24th anniversary. This was our first time. Good food and drink selections. The food and drinks were very good . The ambience was also nice. The only negative was the waitress was a little slow bringing out the drinks."

  • "The food was good, the service was good, the atmosphere was good. Nothing special or out of the ordinary. The fish was fresh but the sides were not great (i.e. the risotto). Our dessert was a total failure and the waiter took it off the menu. Overall, a decent meal was had by all but I can't say we'd rush to go back."

  • "This is a great restaurant for a romantic dinner. The Exec Chef actually came to out table to discuss a special order. Service was excellent! Food was very good!"

  • "I've been to several M&S's over the years and it is always good. The layout of the Park Plaza restaurant provides quiet dining compared to some of the louder energetic seafood restaurants in Boston. The shrimp kiss appetizer is amazing and can be a lunch all by itself with 5 bacon wrapped fried shrimp. Also recommended is the generous tuna tartar appetizer. The seafood entrees are fresh and delicious."

  • "McCormick & Schmick's is convenient to many locations in the Back Bay and their menu is comprehensive, with something for pretty much everyone. The fish here is quite good, but there are plenty of options for those who don't care for fish. We have been here on several previous occasions, and each time we have been pleased with both the service and the food quality."

  • "Thinking we were going out for s teak dinner, we ended up having perfectly cooked seafood. My salmon special was terrific, and my partner's swordfish was cooked to perfection, however, on the small side. We both received a very large plate of food and were satisfied at the end of our meal. the service was lacking here, hard to believe as the restaurant was very slow the night we went. It may have just been our waiter. We will definitely return for the food. The place, I feel, needs an overhaul. Don't go expecting a fancy restaurant, just good food."

  • "The place was deserted on Saturday night. When I've been there before, its usually buzzing. Everyone was very nice. One entree was delayed (some in our party had finished their meals by the time it arrived.) To their credit, the manager came over and explained that the chef would not allow the dish to be served as prepared, and it was being re-cooked. We were given 3 deserts as a goodwill gesture. Wine and company were great, so we had a good time. We and our guests enjoyed the food and quiet ambience. "

  • "We had a 12pm reservation and our table wasn't ready until 12:07pm. After waiting an hour for our lunch, at 1:10pm we were told that they were plating our food. After another 15 mins, our food finally arrived but they got 1 of the orders wrong and another person had to wait an additional 5 mins for their meal. I will never again go back. They didn't even offer to comp the meal that was incorrect. We went here to celebrate a co-worker's birthday and the whole experience was miserable."

  • " We had a wonderful evening! We walked out of there pleasantly stuffed and looking forward to our next trip down to Boston to dine there again."

  • "I was blown away by the service and food at M&S. When the general manager called me that morning to confirm my reservation, he asked if it was a special occasion. When I told him that two of the guests were celebrating college graduation, he asked their names. When we arrived at the restaurant we were surprised to see written congratulations to our graduates (by name!) on the top of our menus! Our secluded alcove perfectly allowed for an intimate dinner, yet our waiter was extremely attentive and enthusiastic. He made excellent recommendations for seafood--everybody ordered different but equally delicious dishes. The Tuna Tower and Shrimp kisses, though decent sizes, were gone in an instant! We will definitely be coming back!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We went to celebrate my daughter's graduation from Boston University. Right from the start, the staff was friendly, accomodating, and knowledgable. Our waiter, Tien, helped select the wines and they even prepared a special scroll and dessert for the new grad. Have been coming here for years because if the superior food, wine, snd service. Will continue to do so!"

  • "I have eaten at several of these restaurants and I always enjoy dining there. the ambiance is just as great as the food. The service is absolutely terrific and the prices are reasonable for a steak/seafood house."

  • "had not been in perhaps a year....menu less choices.....food not as good....( not bad just not as good) small changes noted.....had lobster no water bowl/not even a wetnap... About two years ago I tasted the best calamari EVER at this restaurant ....so perhaps my expectations were high...the waiter was good..clealry a seasoned pro..the food let him down...it was blah"

  • "We dined on Sunday for Mother's Day. The meal was excellent and our waiter Jonathan was great. We were seated in a booth with curtains which could be drawn for privacy. I would definitely dine here again."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "For a chain restaurant, the food and quiet ambience were surprisingly good. Our server was a little slow, but overall, a very pleasant dinner. Not memorable or gourmet, but we will go back for reliable and affordable seafood."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "We were so glad that this turned out to be the very place, with the very food and service that we wanted for Mother's Day brunch!"

  • "I went to this before an 8pm show at the Wang Theatre. They had us in and out in time without being rushed, it was perfect. The waiter asked us if we were doing anything that night in order to gage when we needed to leave, it was very smooth and really appreciated. "

  • "I went there with my daughter before a show. Got flounder that did not taste good. Very fishy tasting. My stomach was upset at the show afterwards. Daughter got burger which was ok. I did not like being solicited with dining offer brochure by server. He Went on too long and we were trying to enjoy appetizers. All in all it was not a good dining experience "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "I have been here many times in small groups and the service was fine. However, choosing to have my 20th birthday dinner here was a mistake. We had a total of 16 people (obviously all college students as it was a 20th birthday) and needed to split the check. While adding up and writing down how much should be charged to which cards, our waiter felt the need to express his annoyance by saying "you realize this is going to take me an hour, right?" We were all put off by this remark, but it wasn't until I walked by the waiter audibly complaining to his manager about us, saw other members of the waitstaff stare at us, and even saw them taking pictures of the large stack of credit cards that we felt uncomfortable and disrespected."

  • "Would have given them a 5, but the service was a bit slow the evening we went ... but in fairness, the restaurant was packed and we were a very large party. The wait staff was very friendly and worked hard to keep us happy."

  • "The cocktail menu was creative. I loved the ginger julep and the kentucky smash. Although we never had to look around for our waiter, he was aloof, did not make suggestions and did not make eye contact. He was easy to wave over, but he did not check on our satisfaction with the meal. The food was overcooked (I ordered the stuffed shrimp and a side lobster tail). The lobster meat was tough and the shrimp tasted as if they had been sitting out for a while. It was not worth the almost $50 we paid for it. My boyfriend had the steak tips and lobster. He received four quarter sized steak pieces and his lobster tail was also overcooked. The waiter was unsure if his course came with a side vegetable and suggested he order a side "just in case". "
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "I have eaten here on many occasions and the food is reliably good. I had the salmon which was a tad overcooked but still excellent. The waitstaff was willing to accommodate my request for a different side vegetable dish which also was quite tasty. It took me a little while to find a wine that I liked but the waiter made sure he checked with the bartender and a manager came over to make sure that I enjoyed my pick. Would definitely recommend this restaurant as a great choice with lots of restaurants near the theater district (although I was not going to theater that night)"
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Although this is a "chain" restaurant, the food is always good here, with very reliable sea food and steaks. We like the way the tables are set up, with some very private booths, some banquettes that are great for just two, and wait-staff who are always there to please and very helpful with selections. The menu seems to have shrunk a little from our last dinner there but the selection was broad. I tend to stay away from fish "stuffed" with anything, but this dish was excellent as was my wife's steak, with a made-to-request pepper sauce on the side. We have never had a meal we didn't enjoy at this Park Plaza location."

  • "First off, our waiter was tardy with coming to our table, but assured us it was due to a staff meeting - which was understandable as our reservation was somewhat early in the evening. He continued to be well mannered and made sure we were taken care of through the duration of the meal. After dinner, and also during, we battled with fruit flies swarming about - whereas three swiftly flew into my beverage and drowned. Even though we said we didn't need a manager, our waiter brought him over and we received a generous reduction to our final bill. They truly wanted to make sure we were happy. As for the food - I'm not a seafood person so I don't wish to comment. However, my boyfriend stated it was excellent."

  • "I was very impressed with the food at McCormick & Schmick's in the Park Plaza hotel. It's definitely upscale, but the portions were good and the waitstaff was fantastic. If you're looking to celebrate a special event or have a fancy night out, I'd recommend this restaurant."

  • "The staff went above and beyond to make our experience great. We had a free appetizer (valued at $12.99) and they allowed us to go with the more expensive option ($15.99) for no additional charge. The waiter gave us updates throughout and had some good suggestions on entrees. Lastly, since it was our anniversary dinner they gave us a free dessert."
