  • Special birthday dinner for my husband of 11 years

    Our experience was very nice. When we first got there, we received a menu with Happy Birthday Tim printed on it. A surprise for the “birthday boy”. Waiter suggested the shrimp kisses which melted in our mouths. Something we had not tried before. I always go with suggested selling ideas. for the entree, my husband got the wohoo which was good and had deliciously cooked vegetables on the side. I got the lettuce wedge with the juiciest, plumpest scallops. I will definitely get scallops next time I got. Our meal was finish off my a molten chocolate dessert which was offered for his birthday. All in all, the food, service and atmosphere was very nice. We will go again, sometime soon (hopefully).

  • Quite unimpressed customer
    Unsatisfied
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    I had previously called ahead to reserve a table for my birthday celebration. Upon arriving to the restaurant the party was seated and provided with menus. There was quite a wait for party to even put in food order. I had requested to taste test some merlot wines, unfortunately they weren't in stock. The party also requested some bread for the table being that the food was taking a while. Waiter notified party that the restaurant was out of bread as well. Once food arrived to the table 75% of the party was unsatisfied and unimpressed with quality and taste. Two sides of collard greens were sent back due to their cold temperature, along with two other pasta entrees that were under cooked as well. Once everyone was finished and proceeded to exit restaurant a few of my party guests noticed other tables that had came in after our party had what appeared to be fresh bread on their table. When the staff were questioned as to why other tables had bread when our party was informed that the bread wouldn't be arriving until tomorrow, staff suggested that the bread had been retrieved from another restaurant in close vicinity.

    My wife and I went to this restaurant because they had a free meal (from a special menu) for active duty military and veterans. They also had a discount on a particular bottle of wine. When we received our meals, they seemed rather small. I didn't think that it would fill me up. We were pleasantly surprised, however. Not only was the food delicious, but it was filling as well.

    What a generous and tasty way to say thank you to our veterans! We have enjoyed this special meal with McCormick and Schmick for several years along with other visits to this fine restaurant all during the year. Always pleased but this most recent meal was especially delicious and we had a wonderful server who made the experience even better. Highly recommend this restaurant located in Crabtree Valley Mall.

    As soon as you walk in you know this will be a good experience. The staff is amazing. We have been back several times because the food is really good but mostly because we know we will be treated as if we are the only ones there. No matter how busy they are, they take the time to be very warm and accommodating. This time was for the Veterans Thank You Sunday. The place was packed. We did make reservations and were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation time. Congratulations to a very well run establishment.

    I enjoyed the service and the recommendation of Shrimp Kisses as my appetizer from my waiter. My entree of Cashew Crusted Tilapia was very disappointing. It lacked any flavor. I was offered a different entree, which I declined. I have had steaks in the past at a different M&S in the past which were very good.

    It was a beautiful restaurant with very friendly staff, so I was really looking forward to great food. Considering the price of everything on the menu, I was sure I would be eating something out of the ordinary. My appetizer was salty, I assume it was due to the bacon wrapped around the shrimp. The salmon rigatoni was so bland that I actually had to keep adding salt and I don't even eat much salt. I was disappointed with the mac and cheese because the noodles were huge and the flavor wasn't that great.

    We love going to McCormick and Schmidt for special occasions. The food is always wonderful and the service has always been exceptional. A couple of years ago we found that they celebrated Veterans Day with vets. We have gone every year since then and been very pleased with the generosity of this restaurant. Whether enjoying a freebie or paying it is always a great experience. Thanks again.

    Had a 6:15 reservation;it was not very busy. I was seated promptly, and ordered wine. That took a while to come and then I ordered the 3 course special. It took a long time for the salad to come out; I feared the entree might come out before I had time to eat the delicious walnut and blue cheese salad, but I should not have worried as it was a long time before my entree of shrimp scampi and two beef medallions arrived. The entree was good but nothing outstanding and I did not like the accompanying green beans. Also, they use whipped butter that is not very good; I like butter that tastes like butter. I had another wait for the Cream Brulee, as well as for the bill, and then again for the return of my card. I see no reason to return.

    I always wanted to try this restaurant. The restaurant was upscale and the service was professional. But the food did not live up to a dining "experience". The food was good and everything was fresh. But the sauces and the method of cooking lacked. My husband had the grilled scallops. The scallops were high quality but they dry grilled them. Some sort of oil and seasoning (before grilling) would have made them juicier and not so dry. The stuffed shrimp were a disappointment. The size of the shrimp should have been extra-large or jumbo and the crab filling should have been "lump" crabmeat. It just missed the mark. But it could get there..........
