Diner Reviews
  • "We went in for a combined birthday and anniversary, had a great meal, great service and complimentary dessert. Couldn't have been nicer!"

  • "Perfect Thursday night dinner. We definitely wanted excellent seafood at a great price. The Sun-Thur special is great for only 28 dollars. I personally got the scallops and loved them! Will go back for sure!"

  • "the waiter took forever. We waited 20 minutes looking at the dessert list which only had 7 desserts."

  • "One of the better M&S I've visited around the US. The shrimp and grits I ordered was good but the best part of my visit was my waiter Winston. A very energetic, well spoken and knowledgable about every menu item, wines, pairings, etc. I'm sure he will be a GM one day."

  • "I have been to several McCormick & Schmick's restaurants around the US and always had excellent service. The Chicago location on Chestnut was very nice but the service left a lot to be desired."

  • " My mother in law's salmon special was overcooked and had to be redone. It took us a while to get the waiter's attention so we could tell him. Once we did he was very gracious about it and he rushed off to prepare another one but the damage (to the dining experience) was done. The rest of the party enjoyed their food and my mother in law's second salmon was good but too late. I chose this restaurant for dinner after the theater because I wanted great seafood, ultimately I was disappointed, at these prices I expect them to get it right the first time. Since all the other food was good I might consider trying this place again but probably not before I try it's competitors."

  • "My medium burger came out rare with dressing on the bun despite ordering it plain. I got chips instead of fries, and we never got the food that we asked to get wrapped up back. I was using gift cards so I wasn't as picky. But it was not a goof first impression.a"

  • "I felt like I was dining in Paris again as the pace of the meal was relaxed and unhurried. Waitress and other staff were friendly, responsive to our needs but never pushy or rushing us. Entrees for our group included 2 shrimp & beef tenderloin dinners, a chef's special blue marlin, and a fresh halibut. The quality of all was impeccable."

  • "I usually order the Filet Oscar. But, this time I tried the beef medallions. It was delicious. I LOVE the clam chowder! I washed it all down with the Prosecco Sangria."

  • "Sierra our server was great, energetic and fun. The food we ordered was awesome, a must is the chocolate bag for dessert. We had kids with us and they had a good menu choice for them as well. Lots of families dining out."

  • "Take out cost, you know what you are going to pay when you go to a quality seafood restaurant. The problem is I didn't see the quality that I would have expected at a higher end fish house. I had the charred monchong supposedly flown in daily from Hawaii. It arrived minus the char but we waited so long to get our food I wasn't about to send it back. The lump crab was very fishy which we couldn't believe. Our waiter was very nice and personable, but was nowhere to be found most of the meal and the restaurant was quite empty. He kept telling us about their famous bread, but kept forgetting to bring us some to try. All in all we will not be going back to the Chicago McCormick & Schmick's."

  • "Lovely ambiance; good vibe when you first walk in. Great menu choices, we went with the Thursday night special that included soup or salad.( we both got salad, great choice) . My tilapia was delicious as were the sides that came with it. My friend's medallions and shrimp were also great. The desserts, molten lava cake and creme brûlée were perfect."

  • "This was a birthday dinner for my wife and we absolutely enjoyed everything. They personalized our menus with my wife's name on it telling her happy birthday. We were satisfied and full, which is rare for some of the restaurants you go to downtown. Recommend to anyone looking for awesome seafood dishes!"

  • "Terrific restaurant that is managed and staffed by very nice people. My family has dined at this location and the Wacker Drive location a number of times - with great results. We have two young boys and a childs menu (which the Rush location has) is nice but the most important feature is to actually feel as though your children are welcome - and we overwhelming felt that sentiment. AND - The food is exceptional!!"

  • "Having a hearing problem can limit where you can take someone you wish to talk with. M&S has always been a place where I could make this happen. Winston our server was excellent. "

  • "I was wary because McCormick & Schnick's is a chain restaurant but I was pleasantly surprised. The food was quite good and the service excellent. I requested an area of low noise because of a hard of hearing person in my group of 10. They were very accomodating. Would definitely eat there again. They also offer a wonderful happy hour option with tasty and reasonably priced bar food."

  • "This particular location has excellent service, great food, a wonderful waitstaff, and a beautiful decor. I took my mother for her 73rd birthday and she loved everything about McCormick and Schmick's service, food, and drinks. We will definitely return to this particular location to enjoy other occasions. I've already shared my experience with friends and family members to go and experience the restaurant soon. "

  • "I didn't know what to expect from M&S. I'd passed the locations before, but didn't know too much about the restaurant. Some reviews were negative about the service and food. I don't know if management has learned from this, or if the reviewers were just way off - but we went to M&S on Chestnut for Mother's Day, and had a terrific dining experience. We had 2 elderly parents with us, and 2 energetic toddlers. I've never seen friendlier and more accommodating wait staff. They were fine with my kids running around the place and up the stairs, as well as our repeated requests for napkins, utensils, etc. Our waiter, Justin, was simply superb. Amazingly friendly and patient. The food was great too - nice selection and very tasty. "

  • "The amount I paid for the three plates we ordered I expected to be wowed.............didn't happen. The food wasn't all that, could have gotten the same plates from a chain restaurant and walked out with more money in my pocket. Will not come back."

  • "Declined in quality with new ownership. Medium wine list, uninteresting food. Service friendly and good, but not enough to make up for the dull meal."

  • "Being on Rush Street a block off of Michigan Ave you would not expect to find a kid friendly spot. The food is always perfect the wine and drinks great. But the little room we had to ourselves was perfect for our family. 6 Adults and a 2 year old. The waitress went out of her way to make sure our granddaughter has fish and chips and some how always had more ready. "

  • "If you are looking for a top-notch steakhouse, this is not the place. For what you get, the food is a bit overpriced. I had to return my first meal (which they did not hesitate to do luckily) as I could not chew my steak (all fat) and the lobster was raw. The second meal they brought out was much better, but it was still only average. This is not a special place to go. If you are looking for a great steakhouse, spend a little more and go somewhere else well known. If you go here, stick to the bar and the appetizers/sides. "

  • "The fully revived McCormick and Schmick under new ownership of Landry's should be given a look. The food is very good with excellent service in a great location.Had dinner on Friday Evening and as always the Food was excellent. Residents of Streeterville give this Reastuarant an opportunity and be surprised."

  • "Our group of four went for lunch at 12 noon, expected a crowd but pleasantly surprised to discover that the dining room was comfortable and relaxed. The maitre d'table was Winston: professional, energetic, knowledgeable about the menu, attentive but discreet at all times - not overbearing or pushy. THANK YOU!! He very much complemented the general dining ambiance and experience. The music level was perfect: soft smooth jazz complemented the overall setting, and my guests perfectly and comfortably heard each other, and carry-on a normal conversation, with no screaming above the noise or music. AGAIN: THANK YOU!! Food : of course, SUPERB! To describe the experience: cool, classic, tastefully elegant & delicious. An exceptional lunch!! "

  • "McCormick and Schmick's is of course great for seafood. I was incredibly impressed with the lobster mashed potatoes and their Bloody Mary. However the service was very strange and blah. I feel as if I am a burden when I have eaten here and like a cheapskate if I don't order steak and lobster. However, the food is amazing and I've heard that the happy hour is great. I will come back but not expect great service, sadly. "
