  • GREAT FOOD, SAD LITTLE MALL
    Skinnyfoodie
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    I thoroughly enjoyed dinner. The crab and potato hash was amazing, the potatoes were browned to perfection, and the shrimp kisses are a starter worth spoiling your appetite for. I had planned to stroll around the mall before dinner but unfortunately the Anaheim Garden Walk is only about 30 percent occupied and most certainly not a garden. Hopefully this will improve and not spoil business for the restaurants that front the mall.

    We waited 20 minutes before we were acknowledged at our table. Had we not gone up to the front and ask for the manager, who knows how long it would have been. The food was lukewarm when it came out. Luckily our meal was paid for with gift cards otherwise it would have been all a waste of money. Horrible service, not even a sorry from the manager and subpar food for the price. Never going back there again.

  • High end seafood lacked a little
    Skyebleu
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    I had the sense this is one of those places where for the full effect you need to order more than your entre: an appetizer to share, a soup or salad, add-on some sides and toppings I ordered the lobster Cobb salad which came in an impressive tower shape and easily exploded into a chop type salad. Generous with lobster, chunk cheese and bacon it was perfect for my low-carb diet. But it did lack something. Maybe just freshly ground pepper and lemon to squeeze over it would have helped. There was a disconnect between the reputation, price and reality of the service and presentation. Chili's at 1/3rd the price produces a very similar gastronomic experience and with more attentive/fun service.

    We went for my husband's birthday this week. my husband had their oyster and we shared the calamari, then a shrimp and scallop combo and a clam chowder. everything was greasy and salty except the oyster were delicious accordingly to my husband. Overall, i did not enjoy the meal, definitely not as good as i remembered them to be at all.

    I had stuffed shrimp. Very, very weak. The shrimp were very small and had no taste. They were laid on top of a dollop of stuffing. So they weren't stuffed shrimp, they were shrimp on top of stuffing. Won't be back.

    We had great service, the food was excellent and the overall experience was spectacular. As Landry's club members, we were welcomed and received excellent treatment. The only draw-back is that it is so close to Disneyland so many families (dressed as if they have been at Disneyland) were also dining with us. Overall, it was a great experience and we will definitely be back!

    My wife and I were really impressed. The waiter was absolutely amazing, service all around was. The food also was very good. I know for sure my wife and I will be coming back. Much better to come here then to some higher priced restaurants and also the restaurants in the area. My wife and I felt we got the most bang for our buck here.

    This place is part of the Landry's family of restaurants, which means one will be assured of consistent quality. It is a chain though, as are most all of the restaurants in the Disneyland area. The food is good, but the price point is a bit steep for what is being served. The filet is not center-cut, although it was tender and cooked to order, and the stuffed shrimp were almost tough and rubbery. My wife had the sea bass, and it also had pretty good flavor, but nothing spectacular, except the price point. We were disappointed that the food was not of better quality for the money spent, but the service was friendly and our waiter did a pretty good job of taking care of things. Very professional.

    Really, walking in from Disney and CA adventure I felt like we would be underdressed, but we were dying for some non-corn dog fare. Our waiter was outstanding and treated us kindly and made sure we had good recommendations and free flowing refills for the kids' drinks (but only if the grownups approved). It is a great place for a special meal yet is welcoming to Disney-walked families. That is a great combo. And the food was amazing - everything the family ordered was beautifully presented as well.

    I received a email for a special for Fathers Day, Made a reservation and when we got there the waiter did not know about the special, good thing I had it on my phone so I could prove that it was 29.99 instead of 34.99. I would have thought that the staff would be informed of holiday or weekly specials. No big deal we had a nice lunch and the food is always good.

    This was my first time coming to this restaurant, and I must say, it was well worth it! I couldn't believe that I have been living 10min away from a gorgeous place that had such great food and hospitality. They're strawberry lemonade is something everyone must try. I ordered the Atlantic salmon and just to tell you that I didn't even want to finish it because it was sooo yummy. I am most definitely coming back.

    I would recommend McCormick & Schmick's Seafood for those who want to make dinning out about the service, the food and the ambiance. The menu is perfect and allows you to select how to prepared the food (Grilled, broiled, Pan Seared) add the sides (Asparagus, Potatoes, Spinach) you want with the Steak, Seafood, Pasta... While you pay for this, the extra 10 per person is worth it when compared to other chains (Cheesecake Factory, Red Lobster, Benihana, Black Angus, etc.). you have an attentive server and perfectly cooked food. We also enjoyed an apple pie desert with ice cream which was amazing.

    Dined on 6/12/2014
    Service was good, but food was average to below average. My dad ordered fish and chips and he said the fish was so over cooked that he had a difficult time ever trying to eat it because it was rock hard! Prices were much too high for the quality of the food presentation or taste. First experience and most likely our last as we were truly not impressed! The restaurant was quite empty and at first thought it was because we ate lunch at 1:00pm, but after our food experience and my daughtet's burnt fish as well, I would date to venture to say the food is the reason why the restaurant had little to no business. Hope they hire a new chef and learn how to prepare quality food for the prices charged.

    We travel a lot so we eat out frequently and have dined at several McCormick & Schmick's around the country. We are accustomed to paying higher prices for good food and reasonable portions. We experienced great service and seating at this S&M. Our issue, the "Perfect for Sharing" Chilled Seafood Platter for $29.99. We received each item listed, the presentation was less than expected. Two medium sized shrimp, two small oysters, half of a small lobster tail, one very small king crab leg cut in half approx 1/2 inch in diameter and about 6-7 inches long. We were very disappointed with the portion size definitely not "Perfect for Sharing". We spoke to the manager, he agreed with our assessment, he offered and we accepted compensation.

    The atmosphere and service were wonderful. I was quickly seated and service began right away. The cocktail order came in wrong, appetizer (Caprese Salad) was uneatable and over-salted. I returned most of it; nobody asked why. The main dish (Halibut) was also over-salted, but eatable after I scraped off the access salt layer.
