    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!

    We came for dinner to celebrate a birthday for a friend. We never visited this location and found it to be very trendy for the location, especially since it was near Disneyland. A little congested with a lot of other restaurants to compete with.

    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.

    Food was very good and not too pricey. Beer selection has improved: they now have Ballast Point Big Eye IPA. Service was a little slow but there was a very large party nearby which may have explained that.

    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.

    This restaurant features mediocre food and poor customer service. We have arrived at 8 pm and had to wait for our drink order for 20 minutes. Sometime during those 20 minutes a waiter brought EMPTY wine glasses. Grilled fish I ordered included a side of green beans that were almost raw, while the fish itself was seriously overcooked. Not to mention that we had to wait an entire hour before we could start eating. Don't waste your time in McCormick.

  • 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.

    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!
