    If seated in one if the private (draped) booths, be careful when exiting for whatever reason as the service staff uses that "corridor" to go back and forth from the kitchen to tables. You may find yourself in a collision !

While the spot was quiet, it was by no means isolated, and we enjoyed perfect service. The food was perfectly cooked and presented. An outstanding restaurant in all respects.

    I want to thank the owner(s) if this beautiful restaurant for giving all veteran a free meal on Veterans Day 2014. It is my understanding this particular establishment has given such meals for 15 years. With this in mind, the service to me and my date was unsatisfactory (more waiters needed on such a night), but my real disappointment was the food. My Salmon plank was very very dry to the point I almost chose not to eat it. My date, whom has eaten Moonfish in the past, did not enjoy her fish as well. Once again, it was cooked too long or it sat under a heat lamp too long before it was delivered to our table. Perhaps meals would be much better on any other date. The atmosphere was elegant.

    Always accommodating! M&S offered a free entree to any Veteran on Veteran's Day. Very generous, and the selection of dishes was extensive. Their proprietary wine offering (at 1/2 price) is Golden Hook, a red blend that was smooth and paired well with both meat and seafood. I had the tilapia, which was perfectly prepared and nicely presented. Then there was the lobster mashed potatoes! Their rewards program makes you a returning customer, as it is good at all Landry restaurants.

    First let me say that I LOVE McCormick's. My husband I go there probably 3-5 times a year. Usually the wait staff is very professional, friendly and personable. They have always been attentive I have never had bad service there until 11/9/2014. I have procrastinated writing a review because I do enjoy everything so much usually. Both my husband and I are in the military. My husband is a veteran and I am currently still serving. On Veteran's day there so many places to choose from to dine at, but we usually will go to McCormick's because everyone truly make us feel special and appreciated. It's not just a meal free meal to us. We will usually have a drink and order dessert. There is usually some sort of conversation with the wait staff about the branch of service that we are in. Usually they have a family member that has served. On 11/9, I felt like "we were just some people coming in to get a free meal". We had to ask for our water glasses to be refilled. We ordered a bottle of wine. My husband also has tea. The waitress would come over and ask if every thing was okay, but we would have empty glasses and if we didn't say, "Can I have some more ??" Needless to say we didn't leave feeling the most appreciated that evening.

    This was not my first time to visit, and i was not disappointed at all. Every time i come to eat its is always the most friendly and comforting place to eat out. Very special place to take someone when you want to impress them. The staff is so kind and the food is always perfect. They have a very nice wine list and some of my fav. ones. The cozy booths are so romantic.

    We went to McCormick & Schmick after receiving an email that they were honoring veterans with a free meal. Although I live within 10 minutes of the restaurant, I had never been there. I have a bad habit of finding a few good restaurants and not ever venturing to other places. My dad and husband are both veterans, so we made it a nice family evening. The food was absolutely fabulous, and it will be a restaurant that I will visit often from this point forward. Thank you for such a wonderful dining experience, fabulous food, and honoring our veterans in such a nice way.

    While the food, ambiance was nice the wait staff was terrible, I ordered a sweet tea, my son ordered a Sam Adams been, while the tea was served within reasonable time i had to wait for 15 min before I could flag down the wait staff for some sugar, my son in the meantime has to wait for 25 min to get his beer. You would think they were running short of bread by the initial amount they served us and never offered to refill, additionally it took a long time to eventually get our meal. The wait staff kept saying that they were extremely busy, and yet you saw them standing around. However I have been to AppleBee's when they were extremely busy and never had lousy service like I did here, can't say if I will ever visit this establishment again.

    We were there on Sunday, November 9 which was the day this restaurant chose to honor American Veterans. They did so wit a complementary offering of a subset of their menu entrees. The menu selections came from various parts of the regular menu giving diners an opportunity to choose among fish, poultry, beef or pasta. My wife and I are both veterans, so each of us was able to take advantage of the special offering. I had the grilled salmon and found it to be delightful. My wife had the panko-crusted chicken breast. The really impressive observation we made was how the entire staff greeted all the veterans. We were made to feel that we were doing them a favor by taking advantage of the great deal they were offering us. BZ!

    David (our server), Austin, TX Domain location, made us feel welcome and appreciated. He personalized our meal and made us think back to our military service. The food was exceptional and all personnel we encountered were professional. Our food arrived very fast. White Zinfandel was over priced. We didn't care about cost, since we got a free meal, so we tipped David very well. You make it easy for us to come back to McCormick and Schmick's each year!! Thanks David!!!

    Requested Anthony as we always do. Like me he is a past Disney cast member and we received DISNEY service from him. He could answer all our dining questions on the spot. We dine there often and whenever we get out of town this is where we bring them. Our res was 2:30 we were seated on time. Your bar staff and check in staff & Anthony are top notch. Thank you for our Vets dinner we appreciated it beyond words. We also enjoy the 'snug' dining as out of town guests never saw that, keep up the good work and hope to see you soon.

    My wife and I took advantage of the invitation for military veterans to enjoy a free meal. Since we are long time M&S diners it was truly a wonderful gesture on their part to recognize our military service (26 years in Marine Corps for me). Although we live in south Austin this is our go to place for great seafood. A long drive but well worth it. I had the grilled salmon and lobster bisque and both were perfect. My wife had the fried shrimp which she said was good. This is a great place for dinner or lunch while shopping at the Domain Shopping Center. Excellent wine list and the apple pie dessert is amazing.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    Food was predictably good, as it has been ever time I have visited. On this visit, the waiter seemed less that cordial until it was time for the check. Simple things like asking if the food was prepared right, checking on the steak preparation, and providing bread or some other holdover was never done. This was also the first time that a manager did not stop by to see how service was going. Is busy a reason to provide lackluster service? Honestly, I could have gotten food not quite as good (but worth going out for) and better service from Applebee's, Outback, or someone other chain. We go to McCormick & Schmick's and other Landry's chains for the Southern Louisiana hospitality of the parent company. Missing, so disappointed....

    Ambiance was very nice for our Anniversary. It was quiet w/dim lights. Loved all of it, except the waiter. He was a great waiter, but not for this kind of upscale restaurant. He kept using the word 'like', a lot! And then what bugged us is that every time he was leaving the table he would say "keep smiling!" The first time was nice, but then it got annoying. Overall the food was great. We had the ahi tuna appetizer which was delicious. We both had the steak & lobster. Steak wasn't cooked right, but the lobster was cooked perfectly. Then we ordered one side of mushrooms. However a plate of garden vegetables showed up with our order. We only asked about the vegetables and did not ordered them. New waiter would've been 5 stars.

    We had a reservation for a 6:30 dinner. We arrived promptly. The restaurant was not busy, yet after much discussion in front of us, the hostess and host decided to seat us in a modified booth - a table w/chairs inside walls - right next to the kitchen and busing station. I had requested a booth, thinking bench seating. So two strikes on where we were seated. I had the season scallops w/cauliflower. It was fantastic. My husband had a fish selection which he really enjoyed. We had creme brulee for dessert which took forever to come out, meanwhile we listened to loud conversation from the kitchen, and the jangle of silverware being prepped. Not relaxing. Service from our waitress was lackluster. I felt like we were an imposition.
