Diner Reviews
  • "You can always count on this restaurant to have very fresh seafood if you select from the fresh seafood menu. The other items on the regular may not be fresh although the dishes are usually well prepared and tasty. Very good wine list at reasonable prices. Good happy hour. Recently remodeled in summer 2014."

  • "We dined on July 16, the occasion was for my birthday. There were 4 of us in the party, my son, his fiance, my husband and myself. We were seated in a "roomette". The service was superb, the waiter was always available but not invasive The food was wonderful, appetizers and the main courses. I recommended it to my friends and they will be dining on Sunday also for a birthday celebration. I hope their experieince is as good as ours."

  • "Our small group chose to meet at McCormick & Schmick's for a reunion lunch. The waiter was great. Attentive when we were ready, but also gave us space to do a lot of catching up. The food was wonderful and we hated to leave. I have been there previously for lunch and dinner and have always enjoyed the food, service and ambience."

  • "McCormick & Schmick El Segundo combines predictably good seafood and an adequate wine list with a location that's convenient to LAX and numerous other landmarks. For a business dinner, the combination of reliably good food and location are hard to beat."

  • "This is a good choice for fresh fish. Quiet atmosphere leads to a good place for conversation."

  • "From the moment the server introduced himself, he let us know that he had little time to hear what we had to say, he was very busy with who knows what. Because he was rushing, he spilled the dish he was going to serve me on the table. Almost got some of it on my clothes. He took it back after I refused to take it like that. Later on we told him that we were celebrating our 24th wedding anniversary and we would like for him to take a picture of us with our camera, but right away, he replied that he could not do it because he had to run. This was the first but is probably also our last experience with this restaurant."

  • "It was our first time to try M&S Seafood but food was very good and we became a fun of this restaurant."

  • "Our family of three had dinner Monday night. My wife and son were pleased with their meals. I ordered a sirloin steak and was very displeased. In past visits I always order seafood and guess that is the safe choice. 'Good' is ok but we paid for 'great'."

  • "My daughter chose McCormick and Schmick's for her 19th birthday celebration. We have dined here several times in the past. The food this time was not as good as we had remembered. They have also raised prices dramatically. The service was friendly and effecient, but could have been better. The restaurant is not a good value since the quality and portions of food were not in line with the prices. I don't think we will return here soon. We were disappointed and expected better."

  • "The food was okay but not for the price. It was not exceptional and lacked the taste for a restaurant above Red Lobster standards."

  • "Great food, reasonable prices, and awesome service! They also surprised us by printing birthday greetings on the menus!"

  • "If you are a lovers of seafood, this is the restaurant for you. There is a wide array of choices and toppings for the fish. Fresh and tasty."

  • "The place is beautiful. We were the first customers. I was a little disappointed in the food. I chose the seafood combo; stuffed shrimp, salmon, and grilled shrimp. The taste of the sauce was delicious. I expected a little more food than two grilled shrimp and three stuffed shrimp and a small portion of salmon. I had asked for cous cous with sweet potato and received wild rice instead. The food temperature was okay, but not hot as I expected. Someone in our group ordered a hamburger and she mentioned it was not anything special. The other person had pasta and she enjoyed it. We work in Food Services."

  • "So happy we choose M&S for our last dinner before flying out at LAX. We look forward to eating at this chain, this location has been one of our best experiences at any of the Landry's locations so far."

  • "they always have a fresh fish menu. Flatbread appetizer was a nice surprise. tried it on a whim and it was very good. topped it all off with the best dessert around - the bag - fresh berries and cream inside a dark chocolate 'bag'."

  • "My husband enjoyed dinner as we celebrated Father's Day."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The receptionist's attitude was not very friendly; the waiter in charge of my table is slow; the food quality is terrible. I will not go to any M&S nor recommend any of my friend go to this restaurant"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The food was really good, but the service left a lot to be desired. First we were kept waiting for 15 minutes, even though we had a reservation. When we were seated, we saw three other open tables. It took forever for our server to come to the table, and a really long time to finally get our food. The food, when it arrived, was really good."

  • "We have been coming to this restaurant for many years and our family loves it. Our children are adults and they come on their own these days. Great service, delicious food, and a comfortable place to enjoy yourself."

  • "After hearing friends rave about this place, I decided to take my husband here for Father's Day. Disappointed doesn't even begin to describe our experience. My two biggest issues were the food and our server. I was totally underwhelmed by my meal. I ordered the Shirmp Triology and our server brought me the wrong dish, which of course had to be sent back. So I sat there watching my husband eat his meal, which he said was "OK", while I waited for them to correct my order. Once it arrived, ir wasn't even worth the wait. I we expecting to be blown away like I'd been at Ruth's Chris the first time we dined there, but there was nothing special about our $100 meal. I've had better food at Red Lobster for under $30. A very expensive lesson learned."

  • "Enjoyed a very nice Fathers Day lunch at this lovely restaurant in El Segundo."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Compared to my local McCormicks (Pasadena), the El Segundo location has a more formal feel to it. The staff is great and the valet parking is convenient. I am partial to their pan seared fish with the lump crab topping and the food presentation is appealing. For dessert, the Bag of Chocolate is decadent for my dietary needs, but is a great way to cheat."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We love McCormick & Schmick's and have been to the El Segundo location twice. It's a great location with terrific servers and chef. The food was great and ambivalence is very nice here - a bit quieter than other locations. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The dining experience at the El Segundo restaurant was clearly less rewarding than that at the Pasadena facility. The service was perfunctory, impersonal and rushed. The oysters were small, the fish a bit dry. All in all it failed to live up to expectations. There are too many good restaurants in this area to warrant a return for such service."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Strong service, food preparation lagged the level of service"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The food was great, our server was even better but the glassware smelled like dishwashing detergent. Had to send my wine back and they had to 'hand clean' a glass.....Noise is level is high and since we were a fairly large party it was hard to hear folks talking. They did a very nice job with the renovations in the main dining room."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "The scallops with risotto were amazing! Our server, Jose, was very attentive and friendly. His knowledge of the menu was extremely helpful. My friend ordered the 3-course prix fix with yummy clam chowder, beef and shrimp and a creme brulee for dessert. I also ordered the heirloom tomato salad off the seasonal menu. We requested a window booth to be in a well-lit section. The management checked with us to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. Self parking is validated in the M&S section of the parking structure (second entrance). Only issue was the smokers right outside the front door of the restaurant. Nasty! Just put up a NO SMOKING in this area sign. I could smell it inside the dining room and had to run the gauntlet to leave."

  • "Three of had a totally enjoyable experience at our local McCormick's. One of us had a salad and 2 starters and the other two split one entree (pan seared scallops) , one salad and 2 starters. Everything was very good - special kudos to the mussels and the scallops. AND the server could not have bee more accommodating, all of our split dishes were actually served to us 'split'. Also, we were. Fortunate to able to sit in a private booth - try it, you will love it."

  • "The service could have been better, especially since we dined early and the restaurant hadn't gotten too busy. The food is generally very good, however I had the Shrimp Trio, and it was overdone. My wife had the King Salmon and it was quite good. I have dined here many times and this is the first time I did not thoroughly enjoy the meal."

  • "Food was good. Service was incredible. Table was almost private (quiet requested). "

  • "Great food but the service was horrible. We had to ask for things several times. Hopefully it was a new waiter because other wait staff seemed better. "

  • "Some fish/shrimp were definitely overcooked, but the flavors were pretty good. Enjoyed having the private booth! It made all the difference."

  • "Food and starters were amazing.. All our meals were fabulous.. Lobster bisque is our favorite.. Love the bar.. Our Negroni's were yummy.. The bartender did a great job.. Valet parking great.. Even put Happy Birthday message at top of all our menus.. Surprise desert with candle.. Love the Shrimp kisses!! We love this place.. And after or before you can just walk across the street to the Arclight theatres.. We eat here often .. Make reservations if special occasion so they can have time for their little touches"

  • "One thing that stood out was our server, Erin. She was fantastic. Very helpful and super friendly. We went during lunch and it wasn't crowded and we got our food very quickly. Overall very happy with the meal."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "The fish is always fresh but the preparation is hit or miss. At its best the food is very good, nut most of the time it is just acceptable. The fish is often overcooked and the preparation just not quite there. A little more care and creativity in the kitchen could move this restaurant to the top."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "The restaurant was nice, clean and fresh. But the service and style of food was stuck in the late 90's. The service was exactly what I expected, average. The fries we're soggy and the burger was something I could prepare and dress at home. For a business lunch, they need to make big improvements or I'll need to stop going there. Houston's or Jackson's is a much higher quality meal for the same price."
