Diner Reviews
  • "Upon arrival seated quickly in empty dining room. Waiter asked if we wanted bread, where as we were served a cold,hard crusted roll the size of a small tennis ball. I ordered single oysters from various Va. rivers. What arrived were the smallest oysters I have ever seen. The most expensive was so small I didn't have anything to remove from the shell. The swordfish was also small, though tasty. The parking situation was another bad experience. Highly anticipated, highly disappointing!"

  • " When I arrived I was told there were no tables to accommodate 5 and I would need to wait 40 minutes which was weird because more than half the tables were not occupied. We asked the young lady that we spoke with to check with the manager. She never came back. We found another person and she told us that there were not enough staff to provide an adequate level of service and we would need to wait. I then walked outside and found the outside manager and she seated us. Makes you wonder who the first two people were talking to. At this point we had already been standing there for about 30 minutes. Our experience got worse from here. Food took 45 minutes to get to us and most of it looked like it sat under a heating lamp for quite a while."

  • "Was not even looked at by a waiter or waiteress for 20 minutes after being seated by hostess at time of reservation. When waiter did finally approach table, there was no apology but rather blamed place onto another waiter. Service contined to be poor throughout dining experience and although food took a very long time to arrive to our table, it was very good. Stuffed shrimp entree and crab cake and crab dip appetizers were great. Would not return however due to the poor, poor service. "

  • "The service was most unattended - the food was room temperature and fis over cooked. Would not return to this restaurant."

  • "The food was very good - unfortunately the service was not that very good. It took alot longer than normal time to get our food, and our server was never readily available."

  • "My wife and I ate lunch at the Inner Harbor location this past Sunday. The weather was perfect and the view was great, but that's all that went right. Our server took 30 minutes to get our sodas, never brought our bread, and when the food came out extremely late, there were mistakes with both of our orders. The only reason we didn't flip out is because we had a gift card to use and didn't actually have to pay any money for the lunch. Every surrounding table was experiencing the same problems we were. It seemed completely mismanaged."

  • "Disappointing experience. The service was dreadful. Soup arrived barely lukewarm, wanted to send it back for reheating, but not a server in sight so ate it but did not enjoy it. Food was very good, but no one came to check whether everything was all right. Ordered decaf and it, too, arrived barely lukewarm and the saucer had coffee all over it. Why are there bread & butter plates on all the tables, but no bread/rolls are served. The table next to us was not bused when those diners left and for about 20 minutes we had to look at dirty glasses, cups and used napkins; staff certainly not attentive to how off putting this was. Will not recommend this place and will not return."

  • "If it were not for the outside seating with a very nice view, this would have received a Poor rating. Although very pleasant, our waitress was overwhelmed and very slow. (Even though the restaurant was not busy.) Our one appetizer, lobster mashed potatoes, were forgotten then brought at the end of the meal. My $27 crab cakes were mediocre at best. Given the location and price I would have expected much better quality. When I pay $120 for lunch for two I expect special. The only special aspect of this dining experience was the view........and it was free!"

  • "McCormick & Schmick never disappoints. From the valet parking, all the way through to the final bite of dessert. And if you've never tried their Chocolate Bag for dessert, it's a real treat (enough for everyone at the table to enjoy a bite or two.)"

  • "My wife & I dined at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Baltimore Sunday before an event at the Lyric and were very pleased with the entire experience. She needs to eat gluten free as well as avoid garlic and onion, and the staff was quite helpful in the selection and preparation of her meal. Her scallops were tender and tasty & the potato hash was absolutely heavenly. As a shrimp lover, I chose the seafood trio of grilled shrimp, crab stuffed shrimp and grilled salmon. The grilled shrimp were a little dry, yet very tasty and the stuffed shrimp was better than average, but my taste buds danced for joy with the grilled salmon. Our salads were fresh and the lemon sorbet was the perfect completion to our dinner. By far the best wait staff ever!"

  • "It is right on the water and has great views. It would be really nice to go and sit outside in the summer time. The food was very good, lits if great combinations that you wouldn't normally think to put together which results in some unique and delicious plates!"

  • "We enjoyed our dinner for 7. Our waitress was well versed in the menu, and she went out of her way to investigate some items at the bar for our drink orders. And most importantly, she left us alone!"

  • "Was greeted at the door (energetically) by 6 or 7 people standing at the hostess table. The service was excellent but our table was broken. Response to our query was, "Yes, some of our tables are broken." Appetizers were very tasty and served quickly, however we were distracted by the sloping table. Drinks were replenished several times without trouble but had to be kept toward the middle of the table for fear of tipping over. Dinner was served hot, however why did I feel like we were at a chain restaurant with us having to raise our hands as to who ordered what? Expected my meal to be delivered directly to me instead of the questioning..."Is this yours?" dance the server had to perform. Everyone agreed food was delicious!"

  • "Seems like restaurant has been trading a bit on its reputation and name. Just came away feeling unimpressed. Service was nothing special with an initial 20 minutes before we had any water in our glasses and a bathroom with no hand towels. Overall facility just feels worn down. Finishes are fading. Food was good, but not great. With all the other great restaurants in town doubt I would repeat. Can always take a walk along the water for the view."

  • "We were glad we reserved a table for Saturday night because they were packed full! We ate at 7, the weather was great that day so everyone was out enjoying the spring weather. We will definitely go back, it's our go-to place in Baltimore. Always Happy with the drinks, food and pricing."

  • "Decided to try the restaurant to take my mom for her birthday who was visiting from New York. It was 7 of us, including 2 kids. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Coconut shrimp, blue crab dip, shrimp scampi, stuffed Atlantic salmon, almond crusted trout were all hits. The service was slow, the waiter did apologize and let us know he also had a couple of tables outside that he was tending to. Overall it was good and would definitely go back"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "always fresh fish, great view and very helpful valet. overpriced for portions, too sales oriented for drinks, etc. didn't appreciate waiter handoff after drink was ordered, resulting in being overcharged for the wrong order staff the small tables with the right kind of attention as the larger ones, particularly when you aren't so busy"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "There were crusty food particles on the outside of my water glass and I opted to not drink the water. It was a bad first impression but the rest of the service and food were fine. I didn't say anything to the waiter about it because I didn't want to ruin the date, I just went without water for the night."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Service was attentive but the waiter did forget to bring drinks after they were ordered the second time around. The food received mixed reviews from our table but we are local Marylanders and know good seafood and this wasn't it. The Md crab soup was more of a stew with a small scoop of crab on top and my crab cakes were very small and unmemorable. They were served with overly seasoned french fries and a tiny container of ketchup and a tiny forkful of cole slaw. With such a large menu offering they should have paired something besides fries and cole slaw(it was like fast food). My daughters dish was the salmon and she said it was overcooked and chewy. I definitely wouldn't recommend this place."

  • "In the past I've always known McCormick and Schmick for fine dining and did not quite have that experience. The food was still very good and we especially enjoyed the spring special menu but our waitress was very casual and inattentive. She struggled with the timing for ordering and did not have us taste the bottle of wine we ordered. We had to flag her down across the room to get our check."

  • "Going to Mcormick & schmicks was an great experirnce starting with confirmation from the resturant, greeting from valet parking attendant, the hostess (we arrive 30 min early, and was seated without wait) the waitress was knowlegible about wine list, the appetizer recommendation made our decisions easy at the start. Our entree was delivered at perfect time after the appetizer were finished. The entree was delivered hot, colorful, snd colorfula perfect presentation. The dessert choices of desserts were great. The bill was even better. Would difinently go back."

  • "We made reservations but, Sunday afternoon we really didn't need them. We arrived at 3:30 and around 4:30-5, more people were showing up. We had seats next to the window and could see out on the harbor. The place would be great in the summer, sitting outside, especially when Pier 6 was having a concert. Food was really good. We got the large calamari (could have been a couple of more, especially if this was a large order). I got the stuffed shrimp, it came with cheddar potatos and veggies. My wife got a shrimp salad. We enjoyect the food and the service."

  • "The experience was totally enjoyable. My only concern is that there was no parking on their lot however, the gate allowed me to come in and I had to pay $7.00 to get out. Once out I parked across from the restaurant and spent another $21.00 to park. It was a costly parking day."

  • "First I would like to say that the food was fantastic! My boyfriend and I went during restaurant week so I knew that the restaurant would be busy. Our waitress greeted us and took our drink order right away, she then took an extremely long time to bring bread and take our order.(20minutes) Once our order was placed we received our appetizers right away along with our bottle of wine. But when our dinner took over 40 minutes to get to the table we were upset. The whole time the waitress never even came by our table. There was a very large group in the center that were loud and should have been seated so that other guests of the restaurant could have enjoyed a nice dinner too. Glad I tried it but not sure if I will ever return. Disappointed :("
