McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Raleigh - Crabtree Mall
Great outdoor seatingLovely outdoor seating delicious seafood and pasta. Drinks pricey but delicious. When using Open Table I added my friend's name for a birthday celebration and they put her name on the menu!! Special touch. Nice job.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasion mothers daysTook my mother for Mother's Day & she loved it. So did I & I love eating the delicious food.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchI decided to take my mother to McCormick & Schmick's Seafood restaurant for her special day and have enjoyed their fish dishes on previous occasions. They didn't let me down this time either. Good service and the hostess was especially kind to my mother being in a wheelchair. The hostess made the entire meal more enjoyable.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner for TwoAfter working out of town and wanting to take my wife of 40 years somewhere special for mother's day, I chose McCormick & Schmicks's. I have been very please in the past with each visit. This time the greeting, seating, and food was excellent as expected. The service was not up to previous visits. When you go to a nice place, pay the prices at a restaurant like this, you expect service to be better. Food was great, the taste, the choices, and served as expected.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatOur dinning took place by the serving station. In the future never set
anyone there because your wait came the station to get items to serve
or reset tables.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers DayWe knew going in that Mothers Day dinner would be a challenge, but since it was also our 1st Anniversary, there was no question that we had to celebrate it in style at McCormick & Schmick's.
As busy as it was I have to say that the kitchen handled it well.
All of our orders arrived in an acceptable amount of time.
Note to others, do Mother's Day early next year. By 7pm they'd run through all of the scallops AND top-shelf rum. lol
Once again, the crab-stuffed shrimp was to die for.
As far as I'm concerned, that and the scallops are pretty much the thing to order.
My wife enjoyed the complimentary truffles and all-in-all it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Thanks for the great service, Brian!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day LunchBeing the busiest day of the year for restaurants, we were very pleased with the service (hostess and wait staff). Note we had a reservation which was recommended. Our party ordered Citrus Glazed Salmon and Talapia which were impeccable both in appearance and taste. Even the kid's in the party were pleased with their mac and cheese. Thanks again!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful place!This is a wonderful place both for special occasions and "just because". The food is fabulous and well worth the price. The chef's choices are always worth a look as are their normal menu items. The blue crab dip appetizer is wonderfully rich and can easily be shared by a table.
Come hungry. You won't be disappointed!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best fish in townWithout a doubt - great food. The chef alters the menu to take advantage of fresh catch. Everything is prepared to perfection - a gentle balance of flavors that doesn't overpower the fish. Very filling. Great wine list. It is wonderful to have very pleasant wait staff that is very knowledgeable about the menu.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMmother's daywe did our tribute on Sat.
was just fantastic for the five of
us.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for grad dinnerPerfect for graduation dinner! The booths are comfortable and block the noise so you can hear what the people in your party are saying. The calamari and muscles appetizers are amazing and huge. Everyone loved their entrées: filet mignon, flounder, mixed seafood grill, stuffed Atlantic salmon. And the desserts were amazing. You have to get the chocolate bag. And the carrot cake is delicious and the size is very generous. The service was great and the atmosphere was perfect for a special occasion!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the lobster bisque!I highly encourage any lovers of good food to journey to this restaurant. You will not be disappointed. The lobster bisque is to die for! I had the ultimate grill and was overwhelmed by the variety and the wonderful tastes. M&S is one of my favorite spots.

Food was excellent quality.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent all around withExcellent all around with a few caveats.
I always find it very dark there.
My wife loved the Cucumber Mint Martini and the calamari appetizer was enjoyable.
Amongst our orders were the Seared Sea Scallops, the Carolina Catfish, fried, the Palm Beach Mahi Mahi, the Stuffed Shrimp and Stuffed Shrimp the Low Country Shrimp & Grits.
The only real problem started when the waiter couldn't adequately describe the sauce base for the dish. My sister loves Shrimp & Grits and is wary of it being too "watery".
My mom tried it anyway and was disappointed with a thick, heavy roux.
As Louisianians we know roux and that was thick enough for gumbo.
Better informed waiters or better menu descriptions would fix that issue.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved our selections fromLoved our selections from the Easter brunch menu. Food was great but we thought a little pricey for brunch.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service on a busy EasterGreat service on a busy Easter Sunday. Try the calamari appetizer and the Heath Bar pie for dessert! Well done!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMgood eats!We seldom get to go M&S, we are usually there for special occasions. We love everything about the place, the food, employees, the atmosphere. We have noticed a few changes since Landry took over and with the economy still bad, but we still enjoy our visits. If you remember, ask to be seated in Slim's section. He's great.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently enjoyable, nationwideM&S is consistent throughout the country. It has not lost a step from the takeover by Landry. The variety of the menu is outstanding. Service is consistent. Prices are reasonable (on the high side), but a good value for the amount of food offered. Because of the design of the dining rooms throughout the chain (Raleigh, Troy MI, St. Louis, etc.) it always tends to be on the noisy side, but it is not obtrusive.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome place for a group of 12My group was happy w service & the food was awesome.

Our waiter, Slim was great in making suggestions and did a great job taking care of us at dinner.
Loved our meal. We were sitting by a wait station, they could take care in re-stocking the area when guests are dining. Otherwise, It was a very nice meal. We joined the club and look forward to our next visit.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGive It Another TryI enjoyed a business dinner here recently and was pleasantly surprised. My husband and I had come for dinner shortly after this Raleigh location opened and our experience then was so mediocre, we had not been back. This time the service was friendly and attentive, although our server's knowledge of the wine list could have been better. The calamari appetizer was tasty, with the added slices of sweet potato, artichoke heart & jalepeno giving it some added zip. My entree, the flaming atlantic salmon, which was served sizzling with a mushroom truffle sauce, was savory and delicious. The upside down apple pie which our server highly recommended did not disappoint. This is an expensive night out but worth it for a special occasion.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been three times at variousI've been three times at various times of the day and enjoyed the service, atmosphere, and most of all the meal every time.
