Diner Reviews
  • "Came here for our first date and the restaurant was everything we expected and more. From the personalized header on the menu to the private dining both, the restaurant made our dining experience a night to remember. The waitress brought the wine, appetizers and maintain course and desert we're brought out at the right intervals. One side note about the attention to detail of the staff and management, our steak was order medium well and was delivered to the table raw. Once we brought thus to the waitress attention she went into action immediately. Not only was it corrected in a timely fashion, but the manager had delivered the steak himself with the deepest if apologies. A wonderful and memorable dinning experience second to none."

  • "My husband & I decided to try out M&S for our date night. The atmosphere was great & the staff were awesome. The menu looked great but did not live up to our expectations. We felt the food was over priced for the quality we were served. Overall, pretty flavorless. Disappointing....will not return"

  • "Our waiter ("the bald guy"--that's how he referred to himself) was very attentive. He really took his time explaining the menu and had really good suggestions. His service was superb and I will make sure I sit in his section the next time I visit. I ordered the Cashew crusted tilapia. It was good, but I wished it was "fried" a little harder. My companion ordered the Salmon and he really enjoyed it."

  • "The happy hour menu and drink specials were good. My wife and I felt that the food was very good but kinda bland tasting. For the money and quality and taste we would still choose Bonefish Grill as a better value."

  • "M&S continues to hold it's own. They used to be a place I "wanted" to go to for happy hour or a nice dinner, but the service has been lacking. This last experience was fine, but the waitress wouldn't give us a minute to get settled and chat about the menu, then dis appeared after the food was serve except to pitch some rewards card. Service should return shortly after items are brought to the table and please don't pitch me something during my meal when I am enjoying the company of a good friend."

  • "The wait staff was very attentive. Ambiance nice and all. The bar took a while to out a glass of Pinot noir, made me start thinking it had been forgotten. Appetizer of shrimp kisses was very tasty. As was the clam chowder and the mussels we ordered. It all came very quickly together however and we we weren't ready once dinner arrived. The fish from Hawaii was a bit underwhelming. Good but not great, expected more for the price. I always love the upside down apple pie. And then I got notice that they had not checked in my opentable reservation, so I had to contest. Overall on the upper end of good."

  • "Took my wife out on our anniversary. McCormick and Schmick was outstanding. I forgot to make a reservation but they were still able to seat us. The wait staff was very friendly yet professional. They were knowledgable of food and drinks they offered. Even though it was more pricey then I am use to I still give it a five star."

  • "We dined at this restaurant for Father's Day. In-laws said best trout they had ever had, my tilapia was good but would have been better if not drowning in butter, husband's mixed grill was very good, daughter's crabcakes were terrible - too little crab, too much mango and avocado. Apple pie was excellent, chocolate mouse cake good, creme brulee was fine. We dined around noon on Sunday and were disappointed that the brunch menu was not available 'due to the holiday'."

  • "We went for a late lunch so the place was very quiet with only a dozen or so tables occupied. Didn't sit in a booth, but we like how they had curtains you could draw for privacy. The oysters were some of the best in terms of freshness and size I've ever had, but the mahi mahi was very bland - needed seasoning. Our server Jeff was very knowledgeable and very friendly. We will definitely be going back to give it a second chance on the fish and order dozens of fresh oysters."

  • "This year we celebrated Father's Day with McCormick & Schmick's. This year was extra special because we were able to celebrate with our youngest son; a US Marine. He was able to come home to be with us this past weekend which made this event extra special. Another reason this was great, our oldest son was able to join us for dinner as well. He and his wife loved the ambiance of the restaurant and vowed to come back and visit the restaurant at a later time!"

  • "I came in for a birthday dinner and thoroughly enjoyed every morsel. Tried marlin for the first time and did so with the daily special that served it raw and cooked - and loved it! Our waitress was prompt and no long waits between courses and very patient with us when we asked for additional time. Looking forward to bringing family and friends here!"

  • "My Sea Bass was a beautiful cut and cooked perfectly, but the miso sauce left something to be desired, the noodles were crunchy in the middle---a little more care in preparation would have gone a long way on this dish."

  • "Both of our dinner entrees were delicious - the crabmeat appetizer with avocado and the couscous with sweet potato were excellent - also, my stuffed salmon was very good. This was not our first time dining at McCormick & Schmick's, and it definitely will not be our last. Also, our waitress was very attentive and friendly."

  • "We chose to celebrate our sons graduation here last weekend. What a wonderful experience! The staff was welcoming and friendly and congratulated our son on his big day. Our waitress was well versed in the menu and made great recommendations for appetizers for us to share, even making sure to add an extra shrimp to the order to make sure each person had one! The food was delicious. I enjoyed scallops, my husband had Mahi, the boys had steaks and each dish was prepare as requested and presented nicely. Deserts, Creme brûlée , chocolate cake, apple pie ....yummy!! We can't wait to go back again!"

  • "We've been to McCormoick & Schmicks many times and always enjoyed the food. In general this was the case with our last visit with one exception. It took an inordinate amount of time to get our first course (which were cold appetizers). Other patrons who arived well after us got theirs before us. When we finally got our first courses and started eating them, the main courses arrived. This is simply not acceptable. we had to send the main courses back to keep warm while we fnished our appetizers. The food was still good and service excellent but this type of service faux pas simply shouldn't happen."

  • "We came as a family to celebrate my father's 65th birthday. The staff made us feel welcome and my dad absolutely loved the birthday message printed on our menus. He is very difficult to please when it comes to the preparation of his seafood but he said that was the best lobster he's has in years. Well worth the price! We can't wait to dine there again."

  • "Out table was one of about 4 other tables in the entire restaurant and it took an hour to get our good after ordering. Once we got it, it was good but the wait time and service was aweful. This was at 1130 for lunch as well, not busy at all. "

  • "We usually go to McCormick and Schmidt's for special occasions. We know we will have great food and be treated well. If you let them know you are celebrating, they will make it a date to remember. We know the food will be great and not something we would find at other restaurants. I usually like to try something new when we eat here. "

  • "The service and food is always excellent. We went there for our anniversary lunch. We unexpectedly got a complimentary dessert. We think McCormick & Schmick's is an excellent restuarant for any occasion. "

  • "We had an amazing time. The food was incredible and so fresh! We felt we were at a fine dining seafood restaurant at the beach instead of right in front of a mall. "

  • "My friends and I ate outside recently. It was absolutely beautiful out. Not too hot or cold with very little wind. We all thought our meals were just OK. I got the Seafood Trio, grilled shrimp, grilled salmon, and stuffed shrimp. All of the food seemed to be a bit overcooked. The shrimp were a bit chewy. My friends who got the scallops and the lobster tail said the same. OK, but a bit overcooked. I would say it's a bit overpriced for the quality of food we got, but we had a nice time sitting outside and eating."

  • "We are both seafood lovers but enjoy different kinds of fish so this was the perfect place to dine. Our waiter was excellent. He was very well versed with the menu and the specials which he explained most accurately. He recommended a very good bottle of wine so we were set for a delightful evening. Aaron, our waiter, was attentive but also respectful of our privacy. I would definitely return and request him as our server. "

  • "Our visit to MS was fantastic. I am so glad I made my reservation on line - even though there was not a long wait. We were seated upon our arrival and our server was simply fantastic, but the food was even better! We ordered maple glazed salmon, perfect spinach and mashed potatoes. Dessert was divine -apple upside down pie and my friend ordered from the strawberry featured desserts. She was visiting from Connecticut and was surprised that Raleigh has grown so much - with great Restaurants to boast! "

  • "I personally can get better quality for a much lower price. Over priced for what you get. The service was excellent but I personally rate the food quantity/quality and price over anything else. Their crab dip was the best. We had watery clam chowder and a small Mahi Mahi filet. The veggies were good as well."

  • "Although the food and service was good, my wife and I were seated at a table right next to the server stand. The waiters and waitresses were slamming the cabinet doors and getting glasses and silverware, talking, etc. We asked if we could sit at a different table. They moved us to one of two booths that were in the pathway between the front door and the kitchen. Because the outdoor part of the restaurant was busy (they had live music in the parking lot), there was constant people traffic past our booth. There were other booths available and for some reason they sat us at this booth. This constant people traffic past our booth ruined a nice dinner for my wife and I."

  • "We got the "Jumbo" shrimp cocktail for $15.99.... It was the smallest "Jumbo" I've ever seen. My wife ordered a Margarita "lite on the mix". The bartender explained they don't use mix! She said that's fine "lite on whatever you use except the Tequila. he explained he couldn't do it because it was half an Orange and a whole lime fresh squeezed. So she ordered a Martini. All he would've had to do was squeeze the fruit into the glass like normal and pour half of it out into the sink. Instead he over argued his point!!! "

  • "My spouse and I ordered the chefs choice like most people I eat with my eyes first. The corvina fish had no flavor. There was nothing Special about the dish, needless to say I was disappointed. When I see Chef special on a menue I expect the Chef to prepare it and it should be outstanding. If I decide to come again I want order the chefs special."

  • "McCormick & Schmick's reamins one of our favorite seafood restaurants in the Triangle. Their food is always fresh and tastefully prepared. They always try to keep the customer happy - preparing an "off the menu" appetizer of Fried Oysters - for instance. Service became a problem due to a large event in the Bar area at times."
