McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Baltimore
Good Food - slow serviceWe went before a concert at Pier 6, as did most of Baltimore! I understand that they were probably slammed with a huge crowd trying to all get out at the same time. Bar service was extremely slow - took 20 minutes to get a beer. The food was good, but our salads took 30 minutes. Tried to try twice to flag down the waiter to get out check, so we were late getting to the concert. Highly recommend the place before a show, but be sure to allow yourself plenty of time.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinnerGreat place to celebrate 41st wedding anniversary and then head to Sting concert at Pier 66/12/2013 12:00:00 AMhot foodShrimp pasta was advertised as hot, but was beyond that. I like hot food; did not like over spiced dish.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific Food, off night for servicM & S has a varied menu that presents well. I was very pleased with my entrée which was seared scallops with spinach and a potato side. The food was perfectly done. Only drawback was less than energetic service. The service was pleasant but not timely. Drinks were ordered and didn't arrive until after appetizers. No one visited our table when we sat down even though they were serving other tables within a couple of feet of ours. The food overcame what was probably just an off night on the service.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday CelebrationA group of us celebrated a friend's birthday on Saturday, June 8, 2013. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. The staff allowed me to bring a birthday cake and placed it in the refrigerator until I was ready for it. In addition, the server was very knowledgeable about the menu and provided excellent service. Lastly, the food was excellent. Overall, the party was very pleased with everything.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAttentive ServiceWe ate early, and so had the run of the place. But, didn't get a prime seat, which was surprising. Staff was very attentive throughout the meal. Dinner and left-overs were very good.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to celebrateWe took my aunt, who turned 82 that day, for a late lunch. At the onset, we increased the number in our party and were easily accommodated. Our server, Jamie, was excellent. Recommending several dishes, all of which were delicious. She was everything you want in a server: attentive but not intrusive, responsive and knowledgeable of the menu and food. I would definitely return on my next visit to the Baltimore Harbor.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMSteady & reliable fish & seafoodWe've eaten at McCormick & Schmick on the Baltimore harbor many times since it first opened years ago, and we've NEVER HAD A BAD meal. But we happen to love well prepared fish dishes, and M&S knows how to prepare fish. Although some will consider it a bit pricy, the product is worth it.
We ate at an outside table on the water; that explains the low noise level. Table inside were much louder. The quality of service was a little disappointing. Our waiter was pleasant and tried very hard, but he was guilty of a few "faux pas".5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA little Chilly w/Awesome ServiceAlthough the outside seating was a little cold the setting was great. Can't blame them, they did stress to us it was cold and would be dropping in temperature. The food was fantastic and they had a great selection. Some of our party are not seafood lovers and were very happy with there meals. The lobster Bisque was awesome and the Lobster Mash was a treat to any meal.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were so glad we celebratedWe were so glad we celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary and McCormick and Schmick's. I'm a foodie, and the appetizers and main courses were excellent. Our waiter, Tim, was one of the best waiters we've come across in a long time - he was courteous, very friendly and extremely attentive - he did a perfect job!
The food was great - the view was pretty - and it was a wonderful evening.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHad funReserved this place for my graduation dinner and the service was excellent as well as the food. No complaints.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood above average, ESP saladsFood above average, ESP salads . Bartender accommodated special cocktail request perfectly; waiter was new but enthusiastic and helpful in spite of busy evening. Will definitely go back.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMawesome!As usual we were not disappointed with dinner here. We go every time we come to town. Service is great!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view, slow paceEating here provides a great view of the harbor and the boats/ships that come in and out. The only issue we had was that our waiter was extremely slow and often left us waiting for his return. Dinner was over two hours long when in most places it would not be. They did a nice special for Mother's Day by providing chocolate truffles to all of the ladies.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day on the PatioMy family had a very nice lunch on the patio for Mother's Day. It was a little windy at first, but died down as we went on.
Our waiter was friendly with a dry sense of humor. He made all attemps to accomodate our needs and wishes.
The setting was beautiful, overlooking the Inner Harbor. The meal was a bit slow coming out, but was worth the wait.
We left satisfied!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday Brunch Very Good but $$$We went to Sunday Brunch for Mothers Day . We sat outside and the setting was really Nice ! Food was excellent , Service was very good although drink service was a little slow . It dis cost $43 per person for brunch and drinks were Cash Bar . It would be impossible to consume that amount of food unless you had an incredible appetite . No one at our table was able to eat more than one plate so I dont think it was a very good value . It would be nice if Bloody mary's and Mimosa's were included . I don't think I would return more than 1 X per yr due to the cost . I recommend a Lower price or Bloody's and Mimosa's included .5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day @ McCormicksWe arrived early to a very hectic, crowded reception area. We were promptly attended too and given that we were so early, offered the choice to use the lounge bar seating. We were seated right away, drink and food orders processed timely and considering the Day, the food and service were good.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe Love This PlaceTook my Mom, my Fianc'ee & Mother-in-Law ! my moms 1st words when she sat down was WoW! we all enjoyed every minute there ! the View, the Menu, the waiters, the Food, the drinks, the whole ambience was Spectacular!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day DinnerThis was my 1st time at the restaurant. We made reservations, but needless to say we arrived 45 min earlier than expected. However we still weren't seated until our reservation time. Very frustrating when you see tables available. When seated we had to ask for bread and water until our starters came out, but the other tables around us got those things as soon as they sat down. The food from the appetizer to the entrée was superb! My waitress offered dessert but never told me that for Mother's day I was to receive free truffles. She made me feel that she was only offering things with a price to increase her tip. So I missed out on the truffles, but all and all I will come back for the food. I'll just be sure to not have the same waitress.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!!The food was amazing from starters to dessert!! Highly recommended!! Worth the price!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch with a viewWe recently ate here for lunch. The view and ambience were wonderful. The decor was modern and sleek and the front desk staff very curteous. The service, however, was average. Our waitress looked annoyed when we asked for bread. We ordered the almond crusted brook trout which was very good, along with the tasty orzo and butternut squash side dish except both were drenched in butter. The coffee was very good, but not hot enough. I would give it another try.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a wonderful night out!We eat at this restaurant once or twice a year. I love sitting near the windows for a view of the Harber and lighthouse. The food is a bit pricy so it's a nice excuse to leave the kids home and enjoy adult time; dress up a little and enjoy a romantic dinner.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat AFTER Concert DinnerHad a great time after the Earth Wind and Fire Concert on Pier 6.
Definitely recommend!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMYumChopped salad and crab topped swordfish was amazing!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view/very good fishFresh seafood choices and great service. Had a cocktail recommended by our waiter and it was fantastic. Great apple pie.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMCame to M&S for my birthdayCame to M&S for my birthday since I love seafood and so does my wife. Service was fantastic - attentive but not overbearing. Starters were 50/50 - steamed shrimp were great, lump crab tower had no lump crab and was underseasoned. Caesar and chopped salads were very good, and large portions that could be shared. Entrees (crusted tilapia and king salmon) were top notch, and I enjoyed the fact that there was no starch with my entree. The only drawback with the meal was the timing of the courses - starters and salads came simultaneously (which was OK since we were hungry), but then the entrees came too soon - we sent them back and waited until we were hungry again.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food!! Great view...We had a group of 8 dining here and the food was amazing, you can't go wrong with your food selection.
View of the harbor and a nice big lighthouse in front, great for photos.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodNice place - service was great and the food was wonderful.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time at thisWe had a great time at this restaurant. We actually called the manager on duty after we left to tell her how impressed we were with the gentlemen doing the valet parking. He noticed we came in with a taxi, when we were finished and leaving not only did he offer to call us a taxi, but he waited outside with us and walked us to the taxi holding the door for us. What excellent service. He made such a difference in our night!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMNice option for group of six. FoodNice option for group of six.
Food was great and view was fantastic4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter we were seated, we waitedAfter we were seated, we waited for 20+ minutes before anyone came to our table. Then an observant and friendly waitress noticed and a waiter was called over from another section to take care of us. I think he may have been purposely selected because he was fantastic and very attentive to us, as was the rest of the staff. All the food was great, including one of the best Maryland Crab soups we have had in a long time!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMM&S is a chain but has a greatM&S is a chain but has a great vibe in Baltimore's inner harbor. we were seated ontime in the main dining room, but due to very close table area, asked for another table. The hostess looked annoyed, and matter of factly said " you can wait in the front area until this other table is ready. We proceeded to the lobby, and decided to sit in the bar area; looked much more friendly at the time. So we enjoyed a nice meal looking out next to a window. Trout was good, not exceptional, but good standard food. A little too much butter for our tastes. Lettuce Wedge excellent, and the waitress made a great alternative selection of dressing. Service was slow, but we were in no hurry, and it was the bar area, so we were ok. Fun night.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMReceived Great service andReceived Great service and food was excellent. Definitely make a reservation so you can get the better view seats.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGirls night out was great!I took a group there on Monday night and the weather was perfect so we sat outside!

So, when we were trying to decide where to take our son and his roommate for Easter dinner, it immediately came to mind. It did not disappoint. The dining room is lovely and comfortable, our waiter was pleasant and helpful, and the food was delicious. This restaurant has an elegant, special occasion atmosphere without feeling stuffy. I'm sure we will be back!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food for a decent price.Great food for a decent price. It was very upscale inside and the view outside of the harbor was very nice. A lot of people love coming here with the whole family and I can see why. The only think I hated was the amount of snooty people who came here to eat. All in all, the food made it worth it3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWaiter was superb, as wasWaiter was superb, as was the food. We will definitely go back again and again.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love M&S, eaten here numerousWe love M&S, eaten here numerous times, service was just very poor this time around.

The service was kind of slow but it's understandable as it was very crowded that day. The waitress was very nice and thanked us repeatedly for our patience. The only fault I have with the restaurant is the over-priced menu but I would still return.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMM&S go to spot for any occasAnother delightful evening at M&S! Time and again it never disappoints and is always a
guest pleaser. Service is always excellent, but this go, CARLA was EXCEPTIONAL! Lingering
business dinners have to be frustrating for waitstaff; yet Carla handled the situation w/aplomb! M&S is our go to
spot for any occasion.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA very enjoyable evening.Celebrated parents' anniversary. As requested, we were given a round table. The menu was labeled "Happy 55th Anniversary". Everyone said their meal was excellent- appetizers to dessert. Well paced meal. When dessert arrived, a candle was in one of the desserts. The dining room and view were beautiful.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNice evening, food prep an issueOverall, a nice evening though food preparation not up to expectations. Wine choices were very good, especially Meiomi Pinot Noir. We ordered the Shrimp-Salmon trio(sautéed shrimp very good, stuffed shrimp w/crab ok, salmon was very under-cooked and had to be sent back for more cooking). The Parmesan Crusted Flounder was excellent. Caesar salads were very good, and the little one had the mac & cheese (very good). Enjoyed the ambiance and the pretty views of the Inner Harbor.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location at the InnerGreat location at the Inner Harbor. Service was above average. Great food selection. Very romantic setting.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
