Diner Reviews
  • "Friendly and prompt seating got the evening started right. Waitress allowed suggested a side order of rice to go with the sizzling platter of Salmon/vegetables. This combo worked great and tasted awesome. Will be back next year for my pre race dinner!!"

  • "We dine here as often as we can. Made a reservation and requested a specific table. When we were seated, the table requested wasn't available. Shortly thereafter a manager asked us to wait just a bit and then came and moved us upstairs to the requested table! How considerate! The food is always delicious. We never feel rushed and also enjoy the seasonal specials. The asparagus salad was amazing!!"

  • "We were to McCormick's & Schmick's in Philadelphia and Seattle and dining there was great. So McCormick's & Schmick's was our first choice upon arrival in Boston. But our visit there was disappointing. We had made an internet reservation, but we waited more than twenty minutes to be seated. We got a table downstairs - no atmosphere!! The restaurant seems to be badly managed. My Fish'n Chips were the worst I had ever eaten. My wife's and my son's dishes were o.k., but nothing special.We were brought the bill before my wife had finished dinner which is not a good sign for a good restaurant. All in all a bad experience at McCormick's & Schmick's Boston, we will not return!"

  • "Great place for waiting despite having a reservation, waiting to receive your food because the kitchen was shut down to new orders because they were too backed up and if you don't like having your water glasses refilled. Food wasn't bad but given how many other restaurants there are to chose from would recommend going elsewhere!"

  • "All was great- food, atmosphere, drinks... Only problem was when waiter spilled a cup of Cappuccino on the table hitting my friend with a small amount if the hot beverage. Although it was an accident and the waiter was apologetic, he could have offered the cappuccino for fee!"

  • "We were staying nearby and wanted a great meal within a short walk as there was a Nor'Easter dropping snow at a fast clip. We decided to sit on the bar side and got a great seat near the window overlooking the Fanuel Hall area. Because of the weather it was not crowded, nor as "energetic" as on a busy tourist day. The food and service were their usual terrific. There are plenty of restaurants in Boston to choose from, but we always enjoy McCormick and Schmick as a reliable place for a great seafood meal."

  • "Great food, great waitress. The one thing that ruined the night was that the hostess and the manager were not friendly, actually rude, arrogant and a little condescending. As soon as we walked in we got from the hostess and later the manager after we had to wait 30 minutes although we had a reservation was " you're going to have to wait" No hello, no greeting, no happy valentines day. The hostess was disorganized and her and the manager seemed like they had no clue what was going on and didn't care."

  • "Came in from out of town, and so we were a little late for Our reservation, but they were more than accomodating and still seated us right away. Server took her time getting to our table but she was friendly. Had the lump crab tower for an appetizer which Was delicious. For entrees the server brought my husband the wrong dish. She never showed up to check on us so he ate it anyways. Food was good, but for the price it wasn't anything to write home about. I wouldn't go back."

  • "Our server was attentive and helpful. The oysters, shrimp, and lobster were fabulous. I got the fillet/ lobster combo. The meat was very tough and chewy. Everything else was wonderful. Too bad the meat left a disappointment with me."

  • "I've been to restaurants all across America and western Europe. I experienced the best service I've had. Certainly not fancy and it was very attentive without being intrusive. Outstanding in every regard."

  • "It was exactly what I wanted to start the new year off. It was our 22nd anniversary and we wanted to eat somewhere quiet, even though it wasn't as quiet as I would have liked, but good enough that we could hear each other without having to compete with others. Overall it was a great night, food and service was great the waitress was very attentive with answering any questions that we had regarding the menu. We enjoyed our night, thank you."

  • "My third visit to M & S. Great location in the heart of Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Friendly and attentive service. Food.......... superb."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "Main dining area room temperature was cool and when an outside door opened, the room became very cold to the point of being uncomfortable. Staff was aware of the issue/problem but had no solutions due to the design of the building/space."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Arrived 20 minutes early for my reservation, told hostess we were early and would wait for table. She was rude, eye rolling etc. Waitress unfriendly and was not attentive. Water glasses not filled, never checked on us after appetizers left at table. Clam chowder cold. Meals didn't come out together. At 745pm on a Saturday night, they had run out of mashed potato's. Complained to manager who appeared with mashed potato's after our meals were received. They compensated us with free desert but at this point the meal was pretty much ruined. Overpriced and bad service. Can't even compare to any of the great steak houses and other seafood rest."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "The waitress was outstanding. Unfortunately the 'seared tuna' that I, my colleague and one of our clients had was awful. It looked like it had been kept on life support for three weeks, injected with red dye and botox and then served off the back of a truck. Not good. My colleague ended up with stomach issues after the dinner. I would never go there again."
    Dined on 12/18/2013
  • "Having dined there before the five of us looked forward to returning. I ordered Pecans crusted grouper over lobster jambalaya. The grouper was overcooked, there where no Pecans,no lobster, only a clump of sticky white rice on top of a broth. Steaks ordered at the table were overcooked. There was also a problem with parking validation. had called to check on validation. I asked to speak with the manager. (I had already reported my food concerns to our server) The manager did not come to our table but sent a handwritten note to cover the validation, not signed or dated so of course the parking attendant would not accept it. Will not dine there again."

  • "even though it was a very busy saturday, our holiday dinner with a very tired 3 yr old and 2 grandparents went off just lovely. The food and service were fantastic and the view of fanieul hall was icing on the cake! Our server was attentive and timing of service was perfect, we also enjoyed the curtained booth which helped keep my little one at the table. There is much to be said to have a place in the middle of the chaos of Faneuil Hall to chill out as you warm up during a long day filled with holiday festivities! We will be back again!"

  • "Now I am sure the food court next door (Quincy Market) should be better!!!"

  • "food as always, was good.. they had to redo my wife's main dish.. too overdone (swordfish) overall, was good... and as expected."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "My wife and I were in Boston over Thanksgiving. We had happily eaten several times at McCormick and Schmick,(in several locations) so we decided to go there. The on-line reservation process worked fine. The food (traditional turkey dinner) was good (ample portions, well-prepared, very tasty); our server was attentive. Dessert (upside-down apple pie) was pretty good but over priced. All -in all, we were pretty happy. The only thing we did not like was the pace -- perhaps the holiday rush, but we felt hurried. The server arrived as soon as we sat down, the meal arrived very quickly, was cleared as soon as we set down our forks, dessert was offered, and accepted to carry out, and we were out the door. Usually the dining pace is more leisurely"

  • "Exceptional bar-only menu from 4-7 M-F and late night but don't order the bruschetta. You get a mix of the veggies cold on the plate with two small pieces of bread."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "We chose this restaurant because of the variety on the menu we saw online and it matched what was actually on the menu. The food was excellent and we enjoyed the wine we chose. When we visit Boston again we would definitely dine there again."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "I went to McCormick and Schmick's with 3 friends after the Christmas tree lighting at Faneuil Hall. I was hoping for a warm and cozy atmosphere, which we got, however I was very disappointed in the food. My entree, the sea scallops, was NOT a $27 level of quality at all. It seems the restaurant is taking advantage of tourists due to its location. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive, but I still felt a little embarrassed that I had taken my friend there because of the food. I would not return."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "The restaurant is acceptable but not at all special. Lobster Thermador lacked enough lobster and was a little too greasy. THe burger was- well - a burger. Miso sea bass was the best. However when the bill comes, the price for the quality just is not right. Way too expensive for ordinary food. I would look elsewhere for seafood. Don't plan on returning - not through any specific fault - just nothing to make me want to return."
    Dined on 11/22/2013
  • "Went early (6:30) on a Wed night. It was a little slow and therefore very quiet. Service was outstanding, prompt but not intrusive and she made several recommendations that were all to our liking. Food was very good, well prepared and timed perfectly. My friend is from out of town and he commented that he has been to several other M&S's, but that this one had a particularly nice feel to it - warm and local. I originally chose this place because it had a good reputation (i had never been before) and was central to et to for both of us. I eqs worried that since it was in the tourist part of town it might be sub-par, but that was not the case. I would definitely go back here again."

  • "The food here is absolutely out of this world and worth going back to again with friends so they can enjoy the experience with you."
    Dined on 11/10/2013
  • "When a restaurant like this, in busy Quincy Market is nearly empty on a Saturday evening, it's probably not a great sign. Waiter was fine, friendly and prompt. Food was decent. I had stuffed salmon, husband had swordfish. Servings were a bit smaller than we expected. Kitchen forgot to blacken my husband's swordfish, so he had to send it back. Waiter was very apologetic. In the end, swordfish was a little too salty for my husband. Not a terrible experience, but didn't knock our socks off."

  • "I've been to M & S several times now and have yet to be disappointed. Their seafood offerings are very good especially given the competition amidst their Boston peers, and their service is excellent."

  • "I ate at McCormick & Schmick's for a Veteran's Day lunch and have eaten here in the past vor diner and have never been let down woth regards to service or food and drink.My meal was a caesar salad and salmon rigatoni w/sauteed vegies in a cream sauce. The meal was decadent and delicious. Servers were attentive and very pleasant. I definitely recommend this restaurant for lunch or diner."

  • "M&S was noteworthy in providing free meals to veterans. On our visit, we saw numerous veterans and their families enjoying the hospitality of the staff and servers. The food was well prepared, tasty, served hot and timely. Servers were attentive and responsive to all requests. An enjoyable afternoon dining experience. We'll be back!"
