    This is one of the best times that we had at McCormick and Schmick's. It was a birthday celebration and it was all of that. We sat in a booth (as requested). The only drawback was the couple behind us was too loud. We heard every word that they said. Other than that, it was a wonderful event.

    Came for a wedding reception after a private marriage vows ceremony, with a party of 6 + booster seat. The service was excellent!! Our server, Mike, is to be commended; he was always there when we needed him but totally unobtrusive and very responsive to our needs. The staff provided a free dessert for the bride and groom! The food was good, but was served at only a "tepid" temperature. We brought that to the attention of the Manager but nothing was done. Still, the tepid food was delicious and the service was impeccable!

    This was my first visit to McCormick and Schmick. I left feeling like it was the first time I had ever eaten food. The food was amazing and after eating dinner my boyfriend and I were stuffed. Couldn't eat another bite but we ordered desert anyway just to taste it. For dinner I had the shrimp trilogy and he had the BBQ bacon wrapped shrimp and grits. Then for dessert I ordered the apple pie with cinnamon icecream and he had pudding and vanilla ice cream. Both meals were perfect. The service was fast and the staff was very friendly. I can't remember our waiters name but he said he was new there, he did an an amazing job. Just need to work on his description vocabulary. He used the same description words for every item he suggested.

    The food was bland, bland, bland. The red velvet cake was dry and not worth the calories. The waitress knocked my glass of wine over; and, of course, the wine ended up in my lap. As an apology, the manager offered free dessert but never offered to pay the dry cleaning bill. In addition, we had to ask for the spilled wine to be removed from the bill. This used to be a nice restaurant; but, not any more. Don't waste your time. There are better restaurants in Raleigh.

    We've dined at McCormick & Schmick's on numerous occasions. The service is always great but our server tonight was no different. One of us ordered the scallop dinner, the other a shrimp trio. My scallop dish was very good. The shrimp trio was good but the butternut squash "risotto" was not really a risotto. The number of shrimp on the plate was very generous. The dessert was most disappointing. We ordered the red velvet cake. The cake was dry and the ice was stiff and not creamy. It didn't taste "old" but it obviously wasn't fresh. M&S: If desserts hang around too long, try reducing the number that your offer so they turn more often.

    McCormick & Schmicks always lives up to my expectations, if not continually exceeding them every time I go there. I made reservations the day before, requested a privacy booth, & received prompt (& perfect) seating & amazing service! The drinks were great & the food was positively heavenly. Everything was fresh & timely. The atmosphere was romantic, calm, & everything I could have asked for. I will certainly be dining there again very soon. I could not have asked for a better experience.

    Second time in 3 weeks I had lunch here. Both times it was empty, service was terrible and food was mediocre at best. This place has gone down hill fast. Waiter was not attentive and obviously didn't care about providing service. They have lost me as a customer.

    Haven't been here in a while, glad we went back. Usually save for a special occasion. I had my usual salmon stuffed with brie, very good, but my husband had one of the chef's specials, the seared tuna with wasabi cream sauce and edamame risotto - outstanding! If it comes around again, would highly recommend.

    My wife and I went to McCormick & Schmick's a few days ago. I ordered the steak medallions in a red wine sauce and my wife ordered a salmon pasta. Both meals tasted excellent. The steak was some of the best steak I've ever had and I even enjoyed the pasta (not a fan of seafood in general). My only problem was the serving size. This might be my fault for ordering the medallions, but I finished my meal and still felt very hungry. I do understand that I was paying for the quality of the steak (and, once again, it was *very* good) versus quantity, but paying $20-some for a dinner and leaving hungry was pretty disappointing. Everything else was really great, so maybe stay away from the steak medallions if you're a big eater.

    We dined at McCormick & Schmick's for my grandmother's birthday. The food was very good, as usual (I recommend the crab dip). The only criticism I have is that our server was very bland, no warmth or personality in our service. He wasn't slow or incompetent, just not personable like servers normally are.
