    while the food was decent, and the ambiance, nice, the portions were miniscule for the price. Our tab was fine at $106, but we left joking about wanting to go to a second restaurant for another course. We are not exceptionally big eaters either!

    The atmosphere was perfect for the type of evening I had anticipated. Quiet and relaxing. Our waiter Mike, was very nice, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Food was great - not quite exceptional like I have had there in the past, but definitely above average. Cocktails were nice and refreshing. I highly recommend this place for dinner and drinks.

    We have always loved coming here on our visits to Atlantic City and ate twice on our visit last week. Unfortunately, the food is not as good as it use to be. The selection is not as great and the fish didn't seem as fresh. Service was wonderful. Once upon a time I use to look forward to coming to M&S, but maybe now that won't be the case anymore.

    We had a nice meal, but the portion sizes left much to be desired, considering the prices of the meals. We have been to a number of upscale steak/seafood restaurants, and I think we expected too much. We would probably not go back.

    WHEN WE WERE SEATED HAD TO WAIT FOR OUR SERVER "MIKE". HE TOOK "LONG" PERIODS" OF TIME BETWEEN OUR WINE, APPS, MAIN COURSE AND DESSERT. HE KEPT MAKING EXCUSES. SORRY ABOUT DELAY. THE RESTAURANT WAS NOT BUSY SO NO EXCUSES. STUFF SHIRIMP WITH CRAB WERE "OK". THE MASHED "CHEDDAR" POTATOES TASTED WATERED DOWN OR MIXED WITH CAULIFLOWER. DID NOT TASTE CHEESY. MY GIRLFIREND ORDER A SALAD THAT WAS NOT TASTY AT ALL. I HAD RAW OYSTERS AS APP AND THEY WERE GOOD. OVERALL I GIVE IT 2 STARS. NOT WORTH WHAT THE COST FOR DINNER WAS. MIKE IS LUCKY HE RECEIVED A 15% TIP.

    The server was a sweet girl but not very knowledgeable about the menu. When we ordered our food we had to wait a long time for it to arrive at the table. My fiance ordered clam chowder and we ordered a calamari to share. Both items came out together instead of being staggered. When our main dishes arrived they were luke warm at best. The surf and turf I had was tasty, but I would have prefered it to be hot. We then ordered coffee which again was warm not hot. The bread that was put on the table was tasteless and wasn't warm. Overall I would not recommend nor go back to this restaurant.

    Me and my boyfriend never ate at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood and we wanted to try a new place. It was a slow Friday evening so we were seated pretty quickly. Our waitress was kind and said she'll try and have our food done as soon as possible because I informed her that I haven't ate for a while and wasn't feeling to great. Roughly 20 minutes later our food arrived - we both were shocked to see that my boyfriends Buttermilk Fried Shrimp meal had only 7 shrimp, fries, and cole slaw which cost $21.99. Maybe for some people that's reasonable or expected, but not to us at all. I'm very very big on not complaining to the waitress or a manager. We simply will never ever come to any McCormick & Schmick's Seafood restaurant again.

    The portion of my entree was much too small and unsatisfying. I found myself filling up on bread to compensate. Then the waitress made 2 errors on our bills. First she charged $6 more for each entree than the price on the menu and then made another $3 error. I'm glad my friend caught the errors which seemed to be directly attributable to the waitress.

    We have always enjoyed ourselves at your restaurant; however there was one thing on my mind when we were departing. As we got into the elevator I heard and agreed with what an other patron had expressed to their partner and I agree! "Last time I am paying $20 bucks to park for a two hour meal" Very disappointed!

    We were looking forward to the filet & lobster tail special. We always use valet parking but to our surprise the fee was $ 25.00. We decided not to park at Harrah's and drove across the street to the Borgata, paid $ 5.00 for valet parking and had a great buffet dinner. I'm sure M&S is a very good Restuarant and they could thank Harrah's for loosing some business with their ridiculous parking fees. Maybe this type of business is part of what is chasing people away from AC casinos and eventually will close more of them. I hope not.

    We made last minute plans to "Do AC" and the Borgata restaurants were all booked. We chose M&S due to its location right next door in Harrah's and my experience dining in the Philly location. Our server Eric was extremely attentive knowing full well he was extremely busy. He knew the menu items well and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. The seafood was fresh and prepared well...we didn't have the steak so can't speak to that. Lobster tails were great. The tuna appetizers and crabmeat app were yummy. Portions were fine! I have to say my 1st choice in AC will always be the Borgata but M&S was a fine choice and I'd definitely go back.

    McCormick & Schmick's at Harrah's is one of the best spots for seafood in Atlantic City. I had the chef's choice of the day - grilled red snapper, and it was delicious. It's a cut above other "chain" restaurants, and reasonably priced, with a good seasonal menu.

    Ate here once before and the food was ok and the service was borderline horrible, but unable to get into the Olde Homestead in the Borgata figured we would five this another try..Anyway it was the worst experience ever in a restaurant...First the appetizers came out within 5 minutes of ordering, then 5 minutes after that to our surprise our meals were on the table...they did forget to bring our salads but after bringing that to the waitresses attention she offered to bring our meals back to the kitchen and bring out our salads...Who does that? Then the manager came over and said they will keep the meals warm while we eat the salad course...now we ordered steaks if they would have sat in the kitchen they would have been like shoe leather!

    I always enjoyed eating at McCormick & Schmick's on special occasions since it is pricey. I thought I would make my vacation special by going to M&S for scallops and nice dinner with my daughter. I was very disappointed this time. While the scallops were okay, the crab has were greasy and not very tasty. This is usually one of my favorite dishes, but I was very disappointed (Saturday, August 16, 2014). My daughter's filet mignon was very tiny as was the wedge salad, although the salad was tasty. The service was also very slow. I will not eat at this particular M&S. For all of the money I spent, I did not leave satsified. The server did not seem familiar with the drink list.

    If this had been my first experience at M&S, I'd never go back. To my surprise, I should have walked out before being seated! The hostess desk sent us to our first table which was still occupied. Then we were seated at a table that should have been cut in half for the waitstaff to walk through. Every time the staff or other diners passed my husband, they either bumped into his shoulder or had to say "excuse me." I ordered clam chowder which contained not one clam & the surf & turf of filet with shrimp. While not seeing one clam, the soup was delicious. The filet was not cooked as I ordered & was tasteless. My family & friends all ordered the Mahi & loved it. Portions great. Needs another chance.

    We arrived promptly for our reservation and were seated immediately. We probably didn't need a reservation because the restaurant had plenty of empty tables for an early August prime-time vacation hotel/casino. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating, however it took her a while to refresh our beverages. I wasn't asked if I would like a refill on my iced tea until I was done with my meal. The food was very good but the portions were very small especially for an adult male's appetite. We ordered a crab-type appetizer which we were told was large enough for two people to share and was supposedly filled with large crab chunks. However, the item was very small and ithere may have been two chucks of crab meat in there
