  • Dry fish/tough steak

    The Swordfish was dry but a good chunk of fish. The steak was tough and for the price, not worth it. The server forgot my sides.

    We always love coming to McCormic & Schmick's for a special evening. The blue crab corn chowder was AMAZING! Service was great, helping with wine selections, and letting me try a couple until I liked what I ordered. Food was delicious as always! Reverse happy hour was great for an after dinner drink!

    I went to Landry's last year for my Birthday in Corpus Christi, Tx. I joined the select club, my $25 birthday gift was going to expire if I did nor use, and I really did not want to defer. Or understand that process much less the point system. It seems like a bunch of nonsense to me. Landry's was spectacular, however I used one of the available affiliates, McCormick & Schmicks. The happy hour in bar area only great. You should be able to use same menu indining area. The wild Salmon the chef advised to order was small portion and very high sodium. The hamburger's at the bar way good. I advise to only dine here and only use happy hour menu.

    The food was outstanding---mussels broth was the best I've had in Austin (had to ask for a little more). Flounder was delicious with a butter/lemon sauce that wasn't overpowering. Absolutely the best orzo and butternut squash. Servings weren't skimpy as in some restaurants. Intimate atmosphere, attentive service. Valet service....very enjoyable evening.

    This is my third time to dine there and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere and USUALLY the service it good. But this time it was uncrowded and the service was very weak indeed. And the food was not that great either. For a little more money Flemming's is far better all the way around, but pricey.

    We enjoyed the lobster and steak two-day special offered by the Austin Century Oaks McCormick & Schmick's Seafood over Labor Day weekend. The service was excellent as usual, the entrees prepared just as expected including the stuffed salmon and the steak and lobster special. The wine by the glass selections were plentiful and great choices. We are looking forward to our next visit. PNOW

    Food tasted good but I ordered the steak medium - got RARE instead. Mashed potatoes very salty. Better like al dente on veggies if you eat here. Waiter was cordial but not competent. He had only two tables and only came back after 20 minutes - out of tea and only then did he ask about my meal....way too late to get it re-cooked. Gave me a very delicious free dessert for my birthday month. Lobster was cooked properly.

    We made an early reservation (6:00) since it was Friday. We got there early to have a drink in the bar. Our waitress was in training and ask if we wanted water, which we said yes to but she never took our drink order. After waiting 10+ minutes and we still didn't have our water nor had we ordered drinks, we decided to go be seated for dinner. There was just two of us and the dinning room was less than half full but they sat us in a booth right next to where the wait staff entered and exited the kitchen. The traffic in and out of the kitchen was very distracting and noisy. My wife did not have a bread dish and there was no salt on the table. The service was average at best. The overall experience was disappointing, especially for the price.

    Although the restaurant was almost empty on a Wednesday evening, we had a long wait before our waiter showed up to take our drink order, & a bit of a wait for the drinks. He said he would bring bread right away, but we had to ask for it 3 times & then he acted surprised that we wanted it before the meal. Service improved some, but not attentive. The food, on the other hand, was excellent and beautifully presented. Our waiter was courteous, just a bit distracted or perhaps inexperienced.

    The first time I had brunch at M & S a couple of months ago, the food was great. Last Sunday, my omelet was overcooked and tough, and the potatoes were almost burned. Also, the fruit cup was skimpy and I didn't get a variety of fruit - mostly pineapple. The 3 friends I dined with didn't say anything about the food, but I'm sure they were as disappointed as I was. Not good!! (The service, however, was fine).

    We went on a Saturday night and were pleasantly suprised by service and ambience. The food though was not great. Portions were small, nothing very flavorful. Red pepper white cheddar potatoes specifically not good - tasted like instant and way too much red pepper (despite the server saying you couldn't taste the pepper at all, not true). Overall disappointing.

    Went their for dinner while on business in Austin at the Domain. Server helping us was a trainee and his trainer was with him, which isn't usually a problem. However, even though we had bread and water refills, it took the trainer server way too long to bring the bill. Also, neither server was familiar with the seafood details and had to go ask whether the King Salmon was fresh or farm raised, and after I learned it was fresh and almost sold out, I ordered blackened, however the taste was not that good and the mashed potatoes were not as hot as they should be. Overall not up to my expectations especially at the price we paid.

    Really enjoyed this restaurant, but my biggest complaint is happy hour is only in the bar area, kind of unfair when all their ads pump up the happy hour with no mention of only in the bar area. That done I think the restaurant chain is on good footing. The waitress could have known more about the dishes, but it turns out she was a new Hire. My customers had the shrimp dinner and the gulf black drum fish dinner. All were very good but I don't like the shrimp split to make them look bigger. Will be back again when in Austin.

    I love going to McCormick & Schmik's as it's always an excellent experience. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly, as was the broccolini and roasted tomato. They happily cooked everything without butter, per my request. The service was wonderful. I always enjoy coming here and will definitely be back again soon!

    The restaurant was slow when we arrived however the service was very poor. Forgotten drink orders. Fish was good. Steaks unfortunately were all overcooked. Sides were cold. As more tables came in, big groups were stacked on top of us rather than spreading us out some so it was noisier and obviously more taxing on the waiter. Waiter needed much more training. As the night went on, it got worse and worse. For the prices at the restaurant you would expect better service.

    I like a good steak and my girlfriend loves seafood so seemed like a good choice since both items are in their title. Her fish seemed to be on the oily side. I asked for a medium cooked ribeye and a side of the red pepper white cheddar mashed potatoes since it looked like none of the steaks come with any sides. I was surprised to see that there was a side of asparagus but my steak was close to well done and the mashed potatoes were cold and bland. On the plus side, the server was great and professional and the ambience was nice. It was our first time there so it might have been a rare occurrence but I don't think I'm willing to drop $70 for dinner for two to find out if that was so. I feel like I got better steaks at Texas Roadhouse.

    Since the closing of the Dallas location I've missed this restaurant's meals. Reasonably priced and consistently good is what you can expect. Nothing too edgy but still interesting preparations in right-sized portions. Perfect date night establishment. Just wish I didn't have to drive to Austin to enjoy it!
