Diner Reviews
  • "McCormick and Schmick's CNN based location in the heart of downtown Atlanta, Ga delivers on the trifecta: atmosphere, great customer service and delicious seafood that makes for a memorable dining experience."

  • "Simple dinner in the bar, was a quiet night in the bar and the service was average- nothing to write home about but not awful. Food was decent, fish and chips was good, and the strawberry shortcake was the hero of the night. Would definitely return- even just for dessert!"

  • "Got extra n my crab tower- a sticker. Guess that was a way to advertise the ingredients. Not happy!"

  • "My wife and I normally look forward to M & S in various cities we visit. We have dined at this Atlanta branch before. But this time BOTH the service and the food was awful. After we were seated, it took over 15 minutes for someone to take our order. Then another 10 minutes just give us water. Yet if was NOT that full. And finally the waiter takes our order, but then when both our entrees arrive, they forgot or missed serving my salad first. "Oh, you ordered a salad?" My wife and I just shook our heads. Then I had to spit out the first 3 bites of the Special, which was steak with crab on top, because the steak was so poor. As I worked on the beef, the pile of fat and unchewable grizzle grew on the side of my plat."

  • "Was both shocked and disappointed to see a sport fish on your menu, Blue Marlin. Have dined repeatedly at McCormick & Schmick for over 6 years and may be a while till I return."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The food was poorly prepared. Nothing was hot. Everything was either over salted or spicy (the tuna appetizer was inedible). Service was slow and there were so few in the restaurant. Not good at all."

  • "Great place, food was excellent will look for another one and hopefully thereisone near home as ran across this one while traveleing in Atlanta."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Food was great. Server was attentive. We were seated under a speaker that was pumping out music (even after I put a note in our reservation that we wanted a quiet table because one person in our party was hard of hearing) but they graciously turned down the volume per our request and even checked afterwards to make sure it was done sufficiently."

  • "Great food and service. I will be returning. The staff was great and the food came out on time. The crap dip as an appetizer was lovely as well."

  • "We like going here because there is a variety that appeals to everyone and the food is always excellent. It's convenient to the CNN center and Phillips Arena. The private rooms make your meal more intimate. Great for when you are catching up with friends."

  • "Although the service could have been better the food was soooooo good I can't even explain.....i took my leftovers because I was I wanted dessert which was sensational.....I microwaved my leftovers n they taste the same as the day before! It was also our first time visiting and will definitely be going back!"

  • "After spending the day with my loved ones celebrating Father's Day... it was quite a treat to relax and enjoy the scrumptious food at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood. Everything was fresh and prepared by top notch chefs. The dinner was awesome... and the dessert was decadent (I almost hurt myself since I finished everything on my plate)! Although, a bit pricey, it was well worth the cost."

    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The food and service were outstanding, but there were a bunch of loud idiots at the bar ruining the otherwise elegant feel of the restaurant. Although the food was excellent, I ended up paying $100 for one appetizer, two entrees and I soft drink plus tip. That's expensive! It was all very nice, but frankly I could have paid $50 somewhere else for almost the same thing."

  • "I would not come back again. I definitely would not suggest this restaurant to my friends or family. "

  • "This restaurant has a notable seafood menu, with multiple excellent choices. The wine list contains an excellent selection of wines for many tastes."

  • "My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary, but to us it was only okay. We expected it to be a lot different. I thought it would be fancier, but there were people in there with T-shirts on and noisy kids. We also had to wait a very long time for our waiter several times and the food wasn't THAT great. Overall, I probably wouldn't go back. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We had to wait an extended amount of time before anyone spoke to us after being seating. Then was given a lame excuse. Our drinks were done incorrectly. They were replaced but again WRONG. However, the food was GREAT. Loved the sea scallops. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We order variety of oysters which were not fresh (smelled awful and were dry) .The waiter did not know which ones were which. Then swap the bad ones with another kind and we got charged for both. The fork was dirty. The swordfish tasted like it was dipped in salt and scallops were over cooked, chewy and burned. The restaurant was empty and we got seated by the door which made the whole experience even worst since the staff was hanging out by the host table. "
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Everything was amazing! Hostess, waiters, and food. I'm definitely going back."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "My husband and I went for a last minute date night. I made our reservations on Open Table while on the way there. Everyone was friendly and the ambiance was nice and quiet. Not too noisy and dark, but the lighting, the food, the beverages our waitress Tiffany was just perfect. This will definitely be one of our "go to" restaurants."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Good venue and convenient for clients. Would recommend to others for business lunch"
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "We had to wait for another 15 min for a table, although we showed up 30 min early. Together 45 min of wait. "
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "I made reservations. I showed up 30 minutes early for the reservations and was not told they were behind. They were having a fight at the front desk with another customer and that was handled very poorly. My reservation stated that I was going to the concert and what time the concert started. At my seating time I was told there were 10 tables ahead of me and that they cannot ask tables that are done to get up after all they paid $300 for dinner. What about those who want to spend monies to eat? This cannot be the only concert that this is a problem so maybe take less reservations or put on the reservation maximum time to sit so everyone has expectations that are realistic? The GM was not working."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "This the the third time we had reservations here and the third time we were disappointed. We regrettably choose here before Pink, Elton John, and lately Cher at Phillips Arena. Everytime we were sat late and this last time 45 minutes after our reservation! We had to rush through our meal to make our concert, I eat my steak well done, not butterflied, and I couldn't even get it the way I wanted because we had to leave in 30 minutes. We couldn't enjoy our club seats at the concert beforehand because we got there 5 minutes before the show started!! When we complained the manager out her hand in our face and walked off. I understand your busy, but this is what you do every day, it is not the first time you were busy at 6 pm before a show."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "Waitress was lovely. . Food was cold. Waited about 30 minutes for my drink. A manager asked us how everything was and I said we haven't eaten as yet. After all the praises family and friends had given Mccormick and schmicks I thought it would be great .. It was NOT as much as dinner cost it was not worth it at ALL.. Maybe it was a bad night however I will not patronize them again and would not recommend to anyone."

  • "We had an excellent time. Despite a slight mishap with our order, which was fixed promptly, we thorughly enjoyed our brunch there."

  • "I enjoyed my first visit to Atlanta's McCormick & Schmick (CNN Center)! The food was terrific and the restaurant is very attractive and works for either a business lunch, date night or before an event at the Philips Arena. Our server, Tiffany, provided very efficient yet unobtrusive service. Our food delivery was efficient and well-paced. This was my first visit and it will not be my last. I suspect this will become one of my 'go to' restaurants in Atlanta. The fact that there is ample parking at the Centennial Parking Garage/Philips Arena Pkg. across the street is a great benefit - and the restaurant validates parking there. "

  • "Visited with table of eight, service was poor and the food preparation lacked attention! Too many places near buy in the city you should dine with. The bar upstairs at the Omni was awesome every night we visited"

  • "We had dined at M&S in KC, but we found the Atlanta operation equally good. I'm a native New Englander and I am VERY selective re seafood. Never a disappointment with M&S for me. And, BTW, "Yvonne" is an exceptional server. Unequivocally recommend! "
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "The inside is very good eating... throngs of people walk by to sports events and tourist attractions, plus panhandlers around, so if that bothers you, eat inside. I ate the Chef's Choice" Trout, which came with sautéed spinach and horseradish mashed potatoes, and it was spot on."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Great for "Me" Time. ACOUSTICS seem to take away sounds and make this a private haven in a busy atmosphere. "
