Diner Reviews
  • "The four of us had a wonderful time. The drinks and food were delicious. The service was well timed."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Not sure what has happened at the Baltimore location but it was an embarrassment. The service was almost non-existent and when there was any it was full of excuses. The food was not hot, getting a drink took at least 20 minutes each time, they ran out of glasses, the food took almost 40 minutes to be served. It was a production to inquire about and eventual order a vegetarian dinner including a bunch of rules of what the restaurant could not do. I was hosting two of my largest franchisees and the restaurant had in the past been a fine backdrop to do two things; conduct business and enjoy a great meal with great ambiance. This WAS NOT the case. The restaurant should reimbuurse me the $200."

  • "Ate outdoors. The food was amazing, specifically the oysters and sea bass. The atmosphere was great. It was very expensive though."

  • "We had a party of 5 for a late/8pm Sunday dinner. The place did not seem crowded but our service and food was slow...over 1 hour for our meals to come out. Once they did one of the dinners was terrible: the steak was rare (requested medium) and the lobster overcooked. After waiting for the waiter to finally return he offered to re-cook it but at that point we just asked to speak to the manager. She did a "drive-by" without even speaking to us and instructed him to offer us a creme brûlée. Insulted we asked to speak to someone else who came to the table and offered to remove that from our bill. Finally after a 2.5 hour miserable experience we could leave. NEVER going back...poor food and food service and even worse customer service."

  • "What a terrific location. Very good service. Lobster bisque was good. But the mixed grill was bland, potato was bland and the Belen's were just a bit under cooked. My wife's stuffed salmon was also bland if eaten without the Bree. Overall, very disappointed with the quality of the food. They must have suspected, be as no one asked. Not at all what I have become accustomed to at McCormick & Schmicks."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "This is a great location for outdoor dining. We have eaten here before and have been generally satisfied. However, this time, both fish entres we ordered were way overpriced for the portion and quality served with one entre barely bordering on supermarket quality."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "My wife and I ordered the exact same thing cooked the same way. Hers was fine, mine was terrible. I did not even finish it."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "As always, the food was great. The outdoor seating was nice until evening. There was a delay in providing table lighting for the outdioor patrons."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Service was slow and Ronnie, our waiter, was annoying and overly talkative. Food (crab cake sandwiches) was very disappointing for a seafood restaurant ."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "This was a terrible meal! Service was slow, the wait for our food was unconscionable, the servings were minute, and the food was too heavily salted. We sat on the patio that had no lights in the dark! The server eventually brought some inadequate lights that were ineffectual. I wrote the corporate office but have not heard from them. I would appreciate a response. Thank you, Dr. Steven Fink"

  • "We went to the resturant the one by the Inner habour based on the resturant promotions on the internet, please refer below the website link : http://www.mccormickandschmicks.com/featured-promotion/three-course-dinner.aspx First of all, the waitress came to our table without that promotions menu, we'd to asked for it, (cause we were interested to try 3 course dinner for $ 24,99) then she came back later indicated the menu was just print out by manager?? and the prices for 3 course dinner was $ 28.99 ?? We did not ask further more questions about it cause we were hungry, but, I wonder why the resturant promotions on internet has 2 different standards than the acutal menu in the resturant? that is not an good impression for us at all !"

  • "Was at the restaurant on 7/19 (around 2pm) for a birthday lunch. It was a beautiful day, so we wanted to sit outside. Approached the two hostesses out front which immediately set the tone. We weren't really greeted and the hostesses seemed to not want to be there. The majority (not our waiter) of the staff had the same attitude. Our waiter was knowledgeable and speedy; however, didn't ask how our meals were (still tipped him 20%). My salmon and roasted veggies (the potatoes) were not done. I've dined at this restaurant in Reston Town Center and the experience was completely different. I would not dine at this restaurant (in Baltimore) again. Too many other options with better prices."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The lobster bisque was the best we've ever had! There was something on the wine menu for every price range. I definitely want to go back and try other things!"
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "The Company had another event going on the same night and was overwhelmed as well as spotty food. The management did remove costs from our bill and were honorable."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "After taking a break from having dinners at this restaurant for family gatherings, we decided to go back last weekend. Unfortunately, the service level still doesn't match the level of the food. Everything we tasted was good, but the wrong appetizer came out, the wine came after the appetizer and then the wine we ordered for our meal arrived after we had finished our meals. Our server was pleasant, but not competent."

  • "Took my girlfriend out for a nice dinner. They honored our online reservation at 9 and were even able to get us some outdoor seating when our original table was taken. The only issue was with a noisy wedding ceremony that seemed to spill over the balcony. I have zero issue with someone enjoying their new marriage I just probably would have chosen a different night had I known I was going to hear akon and other club music spilling over in to the outdoor seating area."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I arrived for a reservation, but we were asked to wait for our table. After about twenty minutes at the bar, I checked in with the hostess and was seated. For the next THIRTY minutes, waiters and hostesses passed our table without acknowledgement and we did not have water or bread. We finally decided that even if we eventually got service, it was not worth it to stay in the restaurant. I told the hostess we were leaving and after explaining why, she apologetically asked if we'd like to see a manager, pointless at that point, so we left. I can't rate the food because we were never noticed."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I had made reservation for 8:45pm for four people. We got there at 8:30. We went to bar and ordered drinks. One person ordered an Apple martini which came in wine glass. Another person ordered a vodka martini came with no olives (said they were all out). After several trips to the see the host and waiting an hour and fifteen minutes I went back to the host and asked if we were ever going to be seated and she asked my name. Again I told her and she said we just seated you five minutes ago. I replied obviously not... Ten minutes later we were seated outside were there are no lights. We needed to use our cell phones to see the menu. After fifteen minutes of not one person even acknowledging we were there we decided to leave."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food was worse then other lower class and priced seafood restaurants. That is when we finally were served. It took over an hour for our dinners to be prepared, then overcooked and lukewarm!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I can say we probably had the best seafood and steak in the same restauant we've ever had. Our waitress was excellent, we wanted a leisurely dinner and her timing was perfect."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "This was our second time dining here, but unfortunately did not compare at all to our first experience. We went with reservations for a party of four, and were seated promptly, but after that the service was far from prompt. We waited 1.5 hours to receive our dinner, before which one of the appetizers was forgetten, with a poor excuse given by the server. After watching other tables be served, enjoy their meals, and leave, we did call the manager to the table. The manager gave a light-hearted "empathetic" apology and said she would check back; however, she never did. In the end a slight discount was given on the bill, but not reflective of the poor service."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Food was excellent and the service was excellent. Had a very enjoyable evening!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Above average prices WITHOUT the quality to match. Stick to local favorites such as Thames Oyster House or even Philips Seafood. We sat down at 6:15pm, ordered by 6:25pm, and appetizers didn't come till 7:05pm! I asked to skip the blue cheese in my Lobster Cobb Salad, and of course the kitchen ignored my request. The salad was pretty big, but there was barely any lobster in it. Had to wait another 25 minutes for the main courses. My wife ordered the miso scallop and got 4 dinky scallops. I ordered the pan-seared black grouper and to be honest it was alright. Overall a not-so-good experience. Will not go back. Do not recommend. Many better restaurants at same price bracket."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The staff accommodated our early arrival and request to sit outside promptly and courteously. We had a very attentive waitress and after hearing that one guest's steak was a bit overcooked, she must have told a manager. The manager came over shortly afterward and asked if he wanted another steak. When he said no- don't worry about it- she told him his meal would be removed from the bill. The wedge salad was big enough to be shared by 4 of us. The entree portions were correctly sized and delicious. The 6 of us were completely satisfied with the location, the wait staff, the kitchen, the ambiance and the total of the check. Thanks!"

  • "We went before a O's Game on a Saturday afternoon. We had to wait 15 minutes for one Bloody Mary and 3 ice teas. We ordered 2 cold Apps, one hot app and a crabcake. WE sat down at 1:50pm and the food came at 2:45pm after complaining to the manager. the Food was very good but it took to long to get. Management handle the problem but it ws too long to wait."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We had made reservations before hand, and not familiar with the restaurants, I was not sure which to pick. We had a nice family dinner outside the 1st night we were in Baltimore. We were very satisfied with all our appetizers/entrees/drinks/and desserts. Only 1 thing, after dark the standing outside lights didn't come on and we kind of asked for candles for table. Had to use light on phone to look at bill."

  • "Everything about our experience was perfect! From the service (Jeff was the best!), to the food, to the drinks, I could not have asked for anything more!"

  • "Went 2x over the 4th & won't go back. From check-in to check-out went from bad to worse! Food has gone down hill, the crab cake was mostly filing couldn't find crab meat, the filet was well done instead of medium well, vegetables left to be desired, wait staff we had except for 1 was not friendly. how sad, was a good place in the past."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "A bit overpriced for food quality, setting is beautiful. Service is slow and disjointed. Had to ask several times for a drink for our toddler, had to request bread. App came out in 1 minute but meals took a long time."

  • "HIGH: Excellent shrimp cocktail, bar drink (M&S Iced Tea) & sourdough bread (as good as what you get in San Francisco) LOW: Went to the rest room...came back to find my table cleared and reset for the next guests HIGH: Waiter immediately replaced my drink (better than my first one) and sourdough LOW: Kitchen backed up (July 4th crowd)...dinner would be delayed HIGH: Ordered pan-seared Rainbow Trout, Oscar-style (crab lumps, asparagus & Hollandaise)...the fish was perfectly prepared & delicious LOW: The fish was layered over mashed potatoes, green beans & carrots (Oscar style?) HIGH: The "Oscar" was still quite tasty LOW: Had roasted potatoes for a side...two potatoes in one dinner? LOWEST: I identified one crab lump in the Hollandaise!"

  • "Sat outside on the patio to enjoy dinner on the harbor. Absolutely beautiful setting and well kept. Our server worked her butt off keeping up. It was 4th of July and the place was jumpin! Food and service were excellent- we had a great experience. We will certainly visit again when we are in Baltimore."

  • "Everything was very nice. We were greated and seated right away. Our server was nice but not to friendly which I am sure some people prefer but not us. The food was great except we would have liked a salad as part of our meal without having to pay extra. Overall, I would recommend it to a friend."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Service was very slow. Possibly due to too many tables crammed into the place. The waiters had trouble serving as you couldn't walk around a table to serve. Waited over an hour for the halibut that was recommended by our waiter. It was lukewarm and tasteless. Steak was tough. Ordered tea and was served 1/2 cup of a small cup of hot water. Just getting the tea took 15 minutes. Even the bread is cold and tasteless. Had high hopes for this restaurant. I've gone to others in other cities and the food was very good. Food is pricey, but nothing was special about it in Baltimore."

  • "Took my wife to dinner for her birthday - this M&S is one of her favorite restaurants. My halibut was overcooked, and she said she liked her shrimp scampi, but commented that Cheesecake Factory's tasted better. Salads, wine, desserts and specialty coffees were all above average. We'll be back, but the fact that a seafood restaurant overcooked a featured fish was disappointing."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "went for a date night and found the food and location very nice. the staff was friendly and the food was pretty good too. the only downside other than a pricey meal, was that the portion sizes for the fish was very small - especially, when paired with the price."
