Diner Reviews
  • "We tried the HRW menu to celebrate a birthday. We also ordered calamari (it was delicious!) and kid's meal (huge cheeseburger for a kid) on the menu. We were given an extra dessert as a birthday treat. The creme brulee was delish. The molten chocolate cake with ice cream were just okay. The service was very slow: we waited awhile for the waitress to come to our table for the first time and to get our bill."

  • "We visited McCormick and Schmitts as a part of Houston Restaurant Weeks. We made reservations and we were accommodated with a lovely table. Our meals were beautifully plated and tasted wonderful. While the meal may bit pricy for the casual diner, it would be a nice place for a more special occasion. I will have to say that parking is a beast. 10 bucks to park and long lines for valet make for a challenging evening if one is on a schedule. (Dinner and a movie or theater perhaps)"

  • "Here is an example of a helpful review: "I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.""

  • "Trout was a little butter-laden, soup was not hot, resent as hot, salad was good, oysters no longer available cheaper by 6 or 12, and quite high, service was really superb, lovely waitress."

  • "We dined here for HRW. The food was good, but there were a few missteps worth noting. I ordered the watermelon caprese salad, but got a salad with watermelon, tomatoes, and basil - no mozzarella! Our entrees were good, but my husband's molten chocolate cake was not molten at all - most likely baked too long. Overall, a decent experience that would be very good if a little moe attention was paid to detail."

  • "The place was awesome with great appetizers. However my main course was bland, so I was dissappointed. I had the bone-in ribeye and it lacked flavor."

  • "The food at McCormick and Schmick was great. The spices on the blackened mahi mahi made my mouth water with delight after I put it in my mouth! I have to say, though, while the food was great, the service was absolutely top-notch! Nothing dirty was left on the table; the waitress was very attentive to drinks/beverages; they came up with a nice birthday surprise of a candle in creme brule...just a great dining experience all the way around!"

  • "We were celebrating a birthday for a friend. We ordered the Seafood Trio" 3 course meal that is offered through Houston Restaurant Week for $35.00. We were delighted to find our menus were customized to say, "Happy 50th Birthday". The service was outstanding and the booth was cozy. The food was nicely presented and the taste was delicious. The manager came to our table to ask how we were enjoying the meal - a nice touch. The dessert, "chocolate molten cake" was amazing as well. We valeted the car for $10.00 - well worth it."

  • "We came here for lunch during Houston Restaurant Week, their special entree menu had a great selection as well as their every night menu. The food here was fresh, delicious and plated very nicely when arriving to our table. The waitstaff is amazing!!! They provide great customer service and are very kind and helpful. They are very knowledgeable about their menu and the chef's specials. Definitely a great place for lunch, dinner and special events."

  • "I was in the restaurant last Friday, and ordered the Lobster Cobb salad. The lobster was plentiful, but rather tasteless. Of course it could have been the overpowering salty flavors from the bacon and blue cheese crumbles. Trust me when I tell you "too much bacon..." has never crossed my lips before.... so while my salad was disappointing, my guest had a wonderful piece of salmon that was cooked to perfection. Our server was lovely and very prompt, yet respectful of our time to converse. Because I've visited before and know that everything has always been wonderful, I will be back. Sometimes bacon misbehaves ...."

  • "I had the steak and lobster. The lobster was awesome. I felt the steak could have been seasoned a little better. However, it was cooked the way I asked and it was tender. Will definitely go back to try the stuffed and grill strip. Unfortunately, hubby wasn't to happy with his fried fish."

  • "It was rumored that this was Good steak and Seafood place but it horrible for price and service would not recommend to My enemies. Food was Luke warm and server didn't know the menu as though they should. We waited longer periods of time for food than other tables with the same amount of people. I assumed that they were on the level as Pappas Bros and The Capital Grille!"

She was very attentive to our groups needs and made wonderful menu suggestions. I would recommend this place for all who love great food."

  • "My boyfriend and I came to McCormick & Schmick's to celebrate our 1yr anniversary of dating. I thought it was a very nice touch to be able to put his name across the top of the menu, to commemorate the occasion. The food was delicious, and our waitress was wonderful. Thank you for a lovely evening :)"

  • "Food always terrific, service could improve some given everything else. Seems the waiters and waitresses are taught to upsell as always looking to sell something more or specials without telling you the price. It would be good for them to just be great service providers and helpful to the client as the place and food speaks for itself. No need to overkill !"

  • "Setting up the reservation online was a snap though this was a celebration and the resturant offers special items for the guest of honor so I had to call anyway. Which is a plus for the resturant for any group gathering to celebrate a special occasion. Food excellent, though service was slow, long delay between the courses and getting tea refills."

  • "The peach lemonade was delicious, so was the house salad to which I added avocados but the pan seared halibut was too dry, it had been overcooked. I liked the added onion rings and food on which the halibut was served. My friend had a steak and grilled vegatables which I did not sample but was told was very good. Also, the Chef accommodated her special needs, which I think meant no spices, but I had arrived after she had already checked with the waitress, so I'm not exactly sure what she requested. Overall, a very nice dining experience!"

  • "This was 2nd visit to this particular restaurant within a 6 week period. The service was MUCH better this time however the main courses still took a long to receive and everyone's food was not brought out at the same time (most of table was finished when last person received food). 'Okay' food at a high price."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Popped in for lunch. Food was cooked perfect, including dessert. However, 7.99 for mixed greens, a few candied nuts and dressing is way over priced. So avoid the salad add on and the value is spot on."

  • "Started with happy hour. Drinks were ample and very reasonable. Reservation was honored exactly on time. Meal was excellent (Salmon and Filet). Service was outstanding. They even phoned for our hotel shuttle and came and got us when it arrived. Restaurant was quiet (no /TV's in dining area making for a very quiet atmosphere. Definitely would return."

  • "I had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant (downtown location) the other evening with my son and husband. Our server was so polite and attentive to us. He was very knowledgeable about the food when we inquired about it and he made great recommendations to us. Our server was very tuned in to our needs as we ate and throughout the visit. My husband had the bone-in rib eye, my son had the swordfish meal (one of the specials of the day) and I had the redfish with the shrimp scampi. We loved the food, everything was delicious. We had the pecan pie for dessert which was also wonderful. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a great meal!"

  • "Our food was bland. That is the reason for the two stars. We arrived at 5 pm during the happy hour. The bar was busy,nice and loud. So at first it was hard to hear my family talking to each other. The noise level did decline later in the evening and it was pleasant. Our waiter provided excellent service. The restaurant was clean and decor was nice."
