    My party of four were celebrating our communal 70th birthdays (spread out over the year) and have known each other for an accumulated 145 years. We wanted to relax, have good food, toast our longevity and we laughed and enjoyed ourselves at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood in Edina for three and one-half hours. I highly recommend the Chef's private choice selections: starter, entree, dessert - everything we ordered was truly tasty.

    Menu was their standard menu, we were hoping for more season offerings in the side dishes and desserts. The restaruant was uncomfortably cold and very loud, making it difficult to enjoy the experience. While service was somewhat slow, the group that participated in serving our table were engaging.

    We had dinner there Nov. 18. The tables were so crowded that it was very difficult for servers to move between tables and to serve food. Our appetizer almost didn't get delivered. Several tables were seated at once and it seemed our server was a little overwhelmed though he stayed very pleasant. While service was friendly, it was a bit slow and a little sloppy. I had much better meals there 1.5 years ago, which had fabulous food and commensurate service. The lobster bisque was far better than Oceanaire last year. The rest of the meal was fine. For entree prices of $20-30, I expect much more from a dinner. I wondered who was managing the restaurant since it was not obvious and it did not seem to be a great evening for McCormicks. The wine glass base broke off for a customer at the table next to us. While the expereince was ok, I can't say I am compelled to return either.

    My family was there for a birthday celebration. The food and service was excellent. My only complaint was despite my making reservations for 5 -- and there were circular tables that would seat 5 -- we were at a table really meant for 4. It was okay -- but it would have been nice to have a more comfortable seating experience.

    The food is average at best (my wedge salad was better than my steak and potatoes) but the service was awful. Our server was inattentive, rude, and smarmy. Will never go back - SO many better restaurants in the area with better food and way better service.

    I took my two adult daughters there for a special lunch. We were seated by a window. When we were almost finished eating the daughter closest to the window put her coat on. She said she had been cold the entire meal and there was a draft coming from a vent near her legs and the window was drafty. Had I known this earlier I would have asked for a different table. My Romano Chicken Chop Salad was tasteless and the chicken was way overcooked and tough. I would have sent it back but we had other things on our schedule for the afternoon so I ate it. I have been here quite a few times and always enjoyed my meals but this time not so much. No way was this lunch worth $60.

    I took my mother here for her 50th anniversary. I something special as my father had passed away 5 months ago. I choose McCormick's because she wanted fish. Boy, did McCormick's deliver! The number of fish choices on the menu utterly surprised me. It felt like a "foodie" playground-Jamacian rum butter sauce, blackberry lemon relish, berry reduction, truffle sauce. Everyone was very pleased with their individual meal. Our waiter was attentive and even spent a few minutes with us after the meal and told us more about the restaurant overall. The food was promptly delivered to our table, and all staff was cordial. Thank you, McCormick and Schmidt's, for making the evening special.

    The crab appetizer we had was very good, as was my husband's meal, but the piece of salmon I had was extremely tiny, bland tasting and very over cooked, even though I ordered it medium-rare.

    The food for the price was below average. A little more taste or flavor to make the dish stand out would be great. Oysters were good so we may be back for the $1 oyster night. The music was extremely loud, luckily the manager moved us from the bar to a dining room but it was still a tad high. My personal taste is that if I have to raise my voice to have a conversation there's something wrong. Overall, a good dining experience but nothing that stands out. Will be back for oyster night though if that special continues.

    The restaurant offered a complimentary meal to Veterans in honor of Veterans Day. What a nice and thoughtful thing to do for our military. The place was buzzing with Vets enjoying a nice meal with their family and friends. The staffed thanked the Vets for their service which meant a lot to my Vet! Dinner was great....mahi mahi was spectacular! And so was the coconut cream pie! All around good food and nice service.

    The restaurant itself is rather unassuming. Nothing jumps out to make you think anything is special, so don't come looking for a hip, trendy hot spot. Come instead for the food and the service. The service was impeccable. Attentive without being overbearing with a very good knowledge of the food and a willingness to provide suggestions. The Cashew Crusted Tilapia was tender and flaky and the crust did not overpower the fish, but we didn't really notice the rum butter. The sweetness of the couscous added a nice counterpoint to the savoriness of the tilapia. The Parmesan Crusted Chicken consisted of two nice filets, perfectly breaded with a lemon caper butter which was nice, but not plentiful enough and on only one of the filets.

    We visited to take advantage of McCormick & Schmick's generous offer to provide a free meal from a selected menu of wonderful entrees to military personnel and retirees onthe Sunday before Veterans' Day. We selected the Cedar Planked Salmon with roasted potatoes and vegetables and my wife also had a side salad. Everything was perfect! The entrees were perfectly prepared and the service was excellent. The salad was fresh and crisp. It was a great dining experience!

    We had a reservation for a group of 7. Our table was not seated for 45 minutes which is understandable . Diners were lingering. Other than an apology by the hostess we weren't even offered an appetizer or dessert for the longer wait. I will still go back to the restaurant , but, I think the staff should be a bit more proactive for their customers.

His name was Chris and he instinctively knew how to handle the table. Chris was observant to our needs but not one to be overbearing! We'll be back and for sure ask to be placed in his assigned area.

    I was underwhelmed by my recent dinner at McCormick & Schmicks. The appetizers of flat-bread and carpaccio were really tasty! The vegetables were done perfectly and the red pepper mashed potatoes were a hit. These are the reasons for 3 stars for the food otherwise it would have been just 2 stars. Understanding it is primarily a seafood restaurant, I was still expecting a good steak for the price and the title as certified black Angus. Big disappointment. Didn't seem to have been cooked with any seasoning. Was tough and fairly bland in flavor. Plate presentation was sloppy. Service was very nice, but a step behind throughout the meal. Doubtful we will make a trip back.

It was too large for eating easily, too much bread and the chicken was rather dry. The soup was delicious. I have had other excellent lunch meals there in the past.
