McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - El Segundo
Very knowledgeable and friendlyVery knowledgeable and friendly waitstaff Made a very happy Mother's Day experience5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Mother's day visit wasOur Mother's day visit was exceptional. The only observance I noted was
my inability to secure a table for 12 guests. I could only reserve a table for
8 thru Open Table. It all worked out in the end as the number in my party changed.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch was not like Years PastWe usually go to their brunches. This year, the brunch was just mediocre. In past years, they would bring a fruit cocktail with fresh whip cream, a plate of different breads/muffins, a main course, and a dessert. This year - some hard sour dough bread and a main course - which was mediocre to say the least.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-Mother's Day CelebrationThis is the 6th year I have hosted the special moms in my life for Mother's Day and over the years the count has grown. The restaurant and food were great! And the staff were friendly and top-notch. Thanks for making the day special for all the moms!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable DinnerThe service was friendly and outgoing. We enjoyed our dinner selection.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Dining without the driveWe wanted an elegant option for a pre-Mother's Day dinner, something special with a menu to suit both the fish eaters and the meat eaters in our group. But the idea of driving into Beverly Hills or Downtown was a deal-breaker. mcCormick's & Schmick's was perfect! The food is always delicious and offers satisfying combinations to please both fish and meat tastes. The atmosphere, with the signature wood panelled booth/tables, upgrades the experience from eating out to dining out. The El Segundo location remains one of my favorite local restaurants but never stops being fine dining delight for me.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMy dish was a trio of seafoodMy dish was a trio of seafood items. The bass was salty and the salmon lacked taste and the stuffing for the salmon was a bit pasty for me. The clam chowder wasn't anything to write home about, not much clam. But, it was a nice atmosphere for a bday celebration.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWas given a booth in a smallWas given a booth in a small private space.

Perfect for 4 to 6 people. Definitely order the chocolate box for dessert (enough for 4 people to share). Also, Chef's special for under $30 includes salad or soup, choice of several entrees, plus choice of two desserts. Won't break the bank with that option.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service from Ken, requestedGreat service from Ken, requested a window booth and waited less than 5 minutes to get it.

The mimosa for $9 was served in the smallest flute that I have ever seen.
The bananas foster french toast was pretty good but I had to ask for syrup.
The eggs benedict that my partner had was good but not great, the potatoes were dry.
