  • Bad experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    I made reservations thru open table and specifically indicated its my wife's birthday celebration. They had the "VIP" card on the table and in the cover, it has the message "birthday celebration for Wife" ( which is nice). But the waitress did nothing about it n there was not even a little cup cake with candles to celebrate the birthday. Unlike before, they wl have put a happy birthday message on the menu and will compliment a cupcake or some sort of dessert with a candle. Nothing happen that night Not to mention the food was so slow. Manager did come over and apologize to all tables but it was just so slow. I was expecting to have a nice experience to have a birthday celebration at McCormicks but was quite disappointed. I gave 13% tip ( should have given less based in the experience) and don't think the service even deserve 5% in general.

    When a fastfood meal equals a modest meal at a moderate restaurant, we intentionally selected a place that stands out above the others. We are not above a middle class, but only searching for a monthly opportunity to feel important. Your restaurant fulfilled our expectations; the staff was exceeding polite and the plate presentation was spectacular. My recommendation is keep up the same level or push higher for that extra extra edge. (Tiny hiccup was the blue moon with peach puree; tad bit sweet, but I'm a beer snob, consider this a raunt). The evening was wonderful, Thank you. Jay

    We came for the free veterans dinner. The choices of meals were good. The service was rather slow in receiving our meals. The waiter walked past us twice before figuring out where we were seated. They didn't offer us bread with our meal until after we were already eating. The food wasn't very hot. We had the strawberry shortcake for dessert. I was dissappointed. The shortcake was dry and not very sweet. Wasn't happy with the fact that they charged extra to refill our tea. Probably wouldn't go back.

    The whole experience was awesome and I would recommend it to all. I was fortunate enough to take part of their Veterans appreciation meal this year and I am so angry I had not done it in previous years. The fish was cooked perfectly and very tasty. I would recommend this establishment to everyone.

    Hats off to McCormick and Schmicks for hosting their Veteran's Day Event. While I was skeptical of the "Liminted Menu" available, the choices turned out to be decent. There was plenty to pick from and I actually had a hard time choosing which one to order. Decided on the Fish and Chips and it was excellent. Keep up the good work - it was much appreciated.

    This was our first visit to McCormick & Schmick's in the Anaheim area. Without knowing how busy it could be considering it is just a few blocks from Disneyland, we made reservations with OpenTable for a 11:30 lunch thinking that on a Friday afternoon right next to Disneyland that it would could be really busy. We were the only couple in the restaurant! The location is part of a growing complex that is under construction right now so I imagine it being much busier down the road. The food itself was great. Service was quick and friendly.

    Have been to other M&S and this was not up top their same level. Service was great, however food prep was just mediocre. Miso seared sea scallops special had no sear, and the broccoli two ways as accompaniment was not appetizing...pretty picture but the tastes were not near the usual (excellent) seared scallops on the non-special menu section. Beef medallions and scampi was great on the beef side, but heavy garlic on the shrimp side. Should have ordered 'light ' garlic.

    Low expectations given the Anaheim location; ordered what I thought was a safe meal--chopped salad and filet mignon. Salad was straightforward, iceberg-lettuce driven. The filet had no relationship to a steak cut from a beef tenderloin--whatever cut it was had a closer relationship to sawdust. Incredibly disappointing for a $35 plate that included undercooked shredded carrots and unappealingly underdone broccolini. Service was slow but our waitress was charming--the only thing that saved an otherwise tired location, deceitful and nasty cut of meat, and corners cut in pursuit of profit. I'll never overspend wildly again at a McCormick's restaurant given the lack of attention and the misrepresentation of the menu vs. what was served. Ugh.

    We were in on Saturday night, Oct 11th. We were looking at the menu and our server was very kind in telling us about some of the new and wonderful items that had just been added. He said that the swordfish was excellent and I must say, we normally would not have ordered it.... But we did and really enjoyed it. The blue crab and corn chowder was also a recommendation of his which we thoroughly enjoyed. The steak was good but not great although it was better because we had it oscar style. We really enjoyed the service probably the most. Our server was Matt and he was not only personable but very knowledgeable about the food. All in all it was awesome and we will be back!

    The food was excellent and the ambiance was very nice, although the service was rather slow. One drawback is that the parking is rather difficult. There is a nearby parking structure, but it is very crowded and busy and you have to be able to walk quite a ways to get to the restaurant. Also, the menu items were a little pricey, but for a special occasion it is okay.

    Made a 6:30 reservation and we were running late due to a traffic accident. We called to let the know as a courtesy and received less than impressive response from the girl answering the phone. Once we arrived we were seated at a less the desirable table for two that we stuck in a corner. We requested another table but we're told no others were available. We had plans after dinner and were on a bit of a tight schedule so we took the small corner table. Our waiter was pleasant, but very distracted. We received our meals and one was wrong, which we did not immediately notice. We never saw our waiter again until our meals were done. We advised him of the error and he realized his error and made the price adjustment to our bill.

    Even though there were few parties there was a lot of noise. The waiter seemed knowledgeable but yet we were there over 25 minutes and still didn't have drinks. Not even water. It started out frustrating I'm not sure why he was so preoccupied but once the food started it was better. Honestly I was ready to leave before we got water. Table service was missing from person across from me we used some from another table, she needed a special menu she received an hour later.

    In the middle of restaurant row across from Disneyland it should have been busy but it was virtually dead. However after we were seated we sat unattended for over 15 minutes with no one coming by our table to even acknowledge us. This was completely unacceptable since there weren't more than 6 tables occupied in the entire place.

    I'd never been to McCormick and Schmick's but picked the one in Anaheim during a birthday weekend at Disneyland. The food was amazing. I was so pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food was. The staff was attentive and friendly, too. Great place. We had one in Burbank but it closed and now I'm disappointed I never tried it when it was so close to me.
