Diner Reviews
  • "The food was good. Salmon and swordfish portions were not very large. Salmon bordered on dry. Steak Oscar got very good reviews from the 2 that ordered it. Prices were very reasonable."

  • "I have and a friend have eaten at this restaurant in our city and it was wonderful so recommended it to our friends with us in BOSTON - wow what a let down. Food was mediocre, restaurant was smelly, carpet nasty, waiter polite and friendly but lacked skills - forgot several items we asked for more than once."

  • "We dined there to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and everything turned out perfectly. The hostess greeted us and wished him happy birthday, to his surprise and he received a personalized greeting on the menu. Our waitress was very attentive and everything we ate was delicious!"

  • "Our party of 3 lucked out, thanks to the weather and a Red Sox game at the same time in another part of town, and had no trouble converting our reservation to outdoor seating. Despite the ongoing (and anticipated) traffic noise, we had prompt, terrific service, with all food and drink served promptly and efficiently. We'll definitely be back."

  • "This is my absolute favorite restaurant. We've been to the Philadelphia & Boston locations & the food is consistent between the two locations. This was the first restaurant that we dined at as an engaged couple, so it holds special memories for us both."

  • "The food was good, as it was last visit for a lunch. I only eat fried clams once a year and the clams here are different. The batter is very tender, melt in your mouth and the clams are tender as well. I haven't tried anything else. One thing, I asked for a quiet booth and they sat us right in front of the opening to the kitchen which was VERY noisy with the clanging of trays being thrown into a bin. The atmosphere in and outside otherwise was very good, just a bad seating and points off for ignoring our request for a quiet place, but I do recommend trying it."

  • "We were seated outside at a well-shaded table. The crab tower starter was very good - an assembly of avocado, mango and topped with crab meat. In fact, the crab was the least interesting part of the dish. Calamari were fried in a very light, tempura-like batter - tasty! Service was attentive but not obtrusive."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "It was like we were at Chili's or a T.G.I.F. First, we waited about 10 mins before anyone came over... then two servers argued, in front of our table, about who should take our order. The one that ended up taking our order was nice and the orders were correct but it stuck with me that I had to stare at her for 5 mins before she came over to argue with the other waitress. This wouldn't be a big deal if the bill was $50 dollars but it was $200 for two people. We were celebrating and I expected the quality of service to match the caliber of food. It did not. I would go back but with a much more casual approach."

  • "I was with a party of 4 - we ordered oysters - very fresh and well presented. We ordered a shrimp & bacon appetizer for those not into the raw bar. It was flavorful! Our meals were excellent overall. There was a tuna steak that was way overcooked and it was like eating canned tuna. We sent that entree back, but the return meal was just as overcooked. Fried clams were excellent and sweet, mahi and scallops excellent."

  • "Service was excellent, and food was delicous. Only issue we had was they ran out of our vegetable of choice (but the chef came to our table to apologze which was nice), and two of our 4 dinners were luke warm when served."

  • "We were meeting friends in Boston for dinner and McCormick and Schmick's was recommended. We had a wonderful experience. We ate outdoors on a lovely evening. Fanueil Hall was alive with activities that were fun to watch and listen to. Each one of us had an outstanding meal, the stuffed salmon and blackend swordfish were big hits. Wine was on the pricey side, but nice selection. Wait staff attentive. Would definitely return."

  • "Not enough room here - service was hesisitant at best, food temperature opposite of what it should be (hot was lukewarm, cold was room temp), attitude was pathetic. Drinks iced down. Went there having a good evening, left there irritated. Won't be back. Money in the wind. Hostess confused about reservation via Open Table. Huh? Saw Bertucci's across the street - my wife commented we could have had a better meal, better service, for a lot less money. Is zero a possible rating score?"

  • "Nice walnut balsamic salad and shrimp three ways. Not particularly creative food, but tasty and attractive outdoor setting."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "The food was decent but the service was extremely poor. The drinks were also a complete mess. They took forever to arrive and were so watered down that they didn't taste right. The server did a poor job the entire meal."

  • "We had dinner after my boyfriend was sworn in as an attorney across the street. We sat outside and it was a nice meal. The street performers kept us entertained and the weather was beautiful. Our waitress was extremely kind and did a great job. The food was absolutely delicious!! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!!"

  • "I found the food quality inconsistent with other McCormick & Schmick restaurants that I've frequented in the past. It seemed as though because this location is in a tourist area, the fair quality of food and service would go unnoticed by patrons. When we asked our waiter what a particular selection of fish on the menu was, which we were unfamiliar with, he said he did not know then proceeded to not make any effort to find out what it was. When we asked if a particular whiskey was available, he first said no then took his time to respond that he would find out."

  • "I've eaten there a few times before but was quite disappointed this time. My burger came with potato chips from a package. The package chips you get at Panera Bread are much better than these. My husband's meal was swordfish with mashed potatoes. He is pescatarian so we always look for ingredients on the menu. The mashed potatoes turned out to have chunks of sausages, which, after we complained about, were replaced by regular mashed potatoes. It was very awkward the way they wanted to keep the swordfish and other sides and just replace the potatoes. At last, we were just chewing on our last bits of main dishes (still had some side dishes on our plates), as we were asked whether we are done. I had to chew and cover my mouth to reply."

  • "First time at a McCormick & Schmick's. Food and service were very good. Went to celebrate a graduation for my son and they personalized the menu for our party, nice touch. Have always had good experiences with Landry establishments."

  • "From a salad to sizzlin' fish tacos, everyone had a meal they enjoyed with a noise level low enough that we were able to cathc up without shouting!"

  • "We reserved a table at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood at Faneuil Hall for our Anniversary celebration. Everyone from the host to our server to the food runner was amazing. They took the time to make our evening very special. I'd love to give a special shout out to our lovely server who was bright and attentive without being overly in our business. Her food recommendations were helpful and spot on. To the chef: Wow! We loved everything we ordered but especially the shrimp appetizer (Bacon, shrimp, cheese...what's not to love!). Thank you for a wonderful evening!"

  • "Rather expensive. Food items are high calorie. After dining there, I realize it ate enough calories for one day in that one meal! I was not given the specials menu sheet. After I ordered, I observed other patrons receiving it."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "I order shrimp and it was old and fishy tasting. Waitress came over and gave sales pitch while we were eating. Not a good experience at all for the money you spend"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "This is all about location and a happy hour bar menu that us a pretty good draw. It's right at Faneuil Hall so that means "quiet" and "romantic" usually are somewhere else. "
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Dirty, poor service, and bad food. Not a good mix. This restaurant doesn't live up to the rest in the McCormick and Schmick's chain."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "When a hostess eventually came to front desk, she "greeted" in an abrupt manner. Since she did not seem inclined to ask if we had a reservation, I offered that information and was told, again curtly, "you will be seated at your reservation time". It was about 10 minutes before our reservation. We didn't mind waiting, but she was rude and unwelcoming. We took it upon ourselves to go into the bar, where we proceeded to wait several minutes before being acknowledged in an exasperated manner by the bartender, who noted she would be right with us,which happened 5 minutes later after she did some dishes. Finally got our drinks, went to our table where service was polite but lackluster - we had to keep asking for basics like water and bread."

  • "service was good, outdoor seating was great. Good people watching in Faneuil Hall. Food was ok. fish was a bit over cooked. steak was superb according to my son. Nice touch for Mother's day was given a chocolate covered strawberry for dessert which was sweeeet."

  • "Appetizers were great but entrees below the standard expected of this restaurant in Boston"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Choice in the menu was good. Service was attentive. It would be good to allow some substitution for the sides. Example rice pilaf instead of mashed potato. Salt could be lowered a little bit...it can always be added to taste but not removed. The location of the restaurant is very good."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "M & S is a reliable restaurant, serving excellent seafood in creative dishes. We went to the location at Fanuel Hall in Boston. Have been here many times before and we're not disappointed this time. Our waitress was terrific and the experience was top notch, as it has been every time we have eaten here. Strongly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a place with very fresh seafood."

  • "Very good food, nice weather so that you could sit outside. Good food service, but poor bar service."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I expected there to be a vibrant lunch crowd at a corner restaurant at Fanueil Hall/Quincy market but it was actually quite the opposite. Somehow this made the experience a little less enjoyable. I prefer to have some activity versus feeling like I'm the only one there! The food was good, nothing really stood out as either really good and definitely none of it was bad. It seems like it has all the right ingredients for a great spot so maybe I'll give it another shot."

  • "There were four in our party with one visiting from Toronto, ON. Each of us had four different meals and each of the meals was delicious. We had two bottles of wine, lobster bisque, an appetizer for the table and a ceasar salad along with the four entrees, (all seafood), and the price just just over $250.00 a very reasonable price for dinner in Boston with two bottles of wine, (Italian wine). "

  • "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!!"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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!"
