McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Houston
Booths are the bestI like to enjoy their delicious fresh seafood dishes in a cozy booth with dark wood benches and fresh linens. This restaurant is reasonable and classy for a business lunch, but the small booths are the best for any serious kind of discussion, business or personal.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Place. Amazing food,Amazing Place. Amazing food, outstanding service. Best seafood platter so far in Houston6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunch atmosphereLunch selections are appropriately sized, with a variety of menu items.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBasic goodIt's nice to be able to get good, fresh fish simply done - grilled or broiled - without fattening sauce, unless that's what you want. But bring a sweater or jacket since the A/C was set on freezing.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMi love this placethis was the first time my husband and i had eaten at McCormick and Schmick's and wow did we enjoy this place. the service was outstanding and the food is something that will have you ordering everything on the menu. i loved seeing the presence of a manager who was making sure that everything was operating smoothly. the young man that was serving us was at the top of his game. he made sure we had everything we needed and wanted and when he was taking care of the other customers another young man showed up at our table to make sure we were taken care of. he was helping out his co-worker, this really impressed me and my husband. TEAM WORK!!!! ALL I CAN SAY IS GREAT FOOD, GREAT SERVICE, GREAT ATMOSPHERE!!!!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, good, goodThis is always a choice for dinner when I have to go to the Galleria area and we want to eat seafood.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExciting specials!Every time we go, I just order the Chet's special if the day-- it's always fabulous. I love how they incorporate local seasonal veggies, and new combinations of fresh ingredients. This time I had the halibut! Fabulously flaky, mild and the stuffing was divine.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWill go back to try more menu itemsOur party of three was pleased to find numerous items we wanted to try. We each had a different type of fish and all dishes were delicious. Service was good. We had to eat early in order to get to an event so we needed an upscale restaurant that was open before 5PM. McCormick & Schmick's was an excellent choice.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service, Off TemperatureWe booked this restaurant for a special occasion. I was looking forward to the Shrimp Triology. I was disappointed. The fried shrimp and the grilled shrimp were great and piping hot. The stuffed shrimp was luke warm. I sent the dish back and the stuffed shrimp was still just luke warm. It was commendable that the chef, personally, brought out my redone dish. My companion loved his filet and was very pleased. I will return because I like this restaurant. I just wish the food was piping hot.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBoth service and ambienceBoth service and ambience were excellnt. The food was amazing, kuddos to the chef.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDate NightTook my wife out for a night on the town; the dining experience at Mccormick & Schmicks set the tone for an enjoyable evening. The server was personable and eager to satisfy our slightest wish, and the food was excellent in all aspects. Recommend the fried Oyster appetizer- select oysters breaded and fried to perfection!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ServiceWe were treated like royalty by our server, Zachary. He took care of all of our accomodations, which when it comes to my mother can be very tiresome. My brother and I were trying to give her a nice dinner as a belated Mother's Day gift and she absolutely LOVED the food and the service. Zachary definitely earns a few extra points for that comment from my mom. He was also very accomodating to the two children we had at the table, 9 and 12 and understood how quickly they wanted their food. Excellent job!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant diningthis is our third visit to M&S and the food, service, and ambiance were quite satisfactory. Our party of 4 each ordered a different seafood and all was prepared well and served hot. I had the swordfish and was a little disappointed in the portion size and the weak flavor, although it was fresh and served with ample portions of potatoes and green beans.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall group lunchHad a group of five and we were seated in a private alcove that had three walls and a curtain. It did allow for private conversation, but felt like we were sent off to a small room with no ambience. The service was at a little bit of a slow pace, a full two hours for lunch. The service was very professional otherwise. The food was fabulous.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNo Snails!It's been a while since I've eaten here, but one of the previous highlights was well prepared escargot. Generally speaking, people order this delicacy more for the garlic butter than the arthropod, but for some reason the snails here were actually tasty. The food was reasonably well prepared with no complaints. The mousse in a chocolate bag however, was a standout dessert.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat occasion!The food was very good. THE PORTIONS WERE GREAT! My husband and son loved the steak. The best part of my meal was the Chocolate Expresso cake it was DELICIOUS! I COULDN'T STOP EATING IT.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEvert time we had dinner atEvert time we had dinner at this location, we always had a wonderful time. The foor, waiters and hostesses are very plesent and helpful. Enjoy the last time, which was Mothers day. Had a table in a secluded section with curtains. Loved the extra attention we received.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Dayit was a very pleasant dining experience on a special day. The service was great and the atmosphere was just right to honor the mothers.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day Early DinnerWe had a party of 7 and a reservation at 4 on Mother's Day. We waited a few minutes while they set the table up, not long. We were in a semi-private room with a curtain you could pull closed. It made the noise level very low and we could all talk and hear just fine. The food was exceptional - everyone enjoyed what they ordered. We will definitely return for another special occasion - this was our second, we had Thanksgiving there last year and it was great too!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM1st Timer to McCormickThe food was excellent! The hostess was really nice. Everyone at the front were nice. The only problem that occurred was that the waiter had a bad attitude. Not really sure if he was having a bad day or what but he was really rude. The other waiters that I encountered were nice and respectful. But this specific waiter was just rude. Besides him, I loved the restaurant and I plan to come back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMcCormick's--Unchained ChainThe ambience, service, and most of all food at McCormick's has, if anything, improved since acquired by Landry's. Perhaps a little less emphasis on the "fresh today" menu, but positively replaced with special items that your taste buds can savor. Always a favorite, never disappointing, and sometimes even surpassing already expectations. Particularly nice for "upscale" business dining--lunch or dinner.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLoudMy husband ordered steak and it wasn't cooked correctly. He isn't one to complain though. He asked for med. well and it was med. rare. I don't think the waiter heard him correctly with all the loud noise. My food was great and I enjoyed it. He on the other hand took his to go and he cooked it more when we got back to the hotel.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEntertainingI have taken customers here several times. Great for groups and everyone enjoys themselves.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDinnerAlthough the food was delicious, the amount of roasted potatoes and vegetables given with my tilapia fish was not enough compared to other restaurants, and amount paid. I had to order an extra order of roasted potatoes. My tilapia fish came with about 5 little potatoes, and barely any vegetables which was equivalent to enough food for a child.
The food was delicious and service was good. The amount of food given was not good.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMcCormick & Schmicks SeafoodMcCormick & Schmicks Seafood was a pleasant dining experience..4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was really good andThe food was really good and the service was outstanding.

Selfparking may be challenging!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary Celebration DinnerExcellent food, excellent service, excellent atmosphere...equals one excellent anniversary celebration. I love that the menu is also posted online. That allows one to make some very good choices if you are trying to pay attention to calories. My husband and I both had delicious meals without consuming 3 days worth of calories in one sitting! His Parmesan crusted flounder was tender and buttery. I had the cashew crusted tilapia and it was equally good. I especially liked the sweet potato couscous side dish with this. The steamed veggies were tender crisp and perfect. Saving room for dessert, I chose the chocolate bag, and was advised by our server that it was large enough to share. A nice suggestion, and an amazing dessert!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent atmosphere, niceExcellent atmosphere, nice quiet dining experience, and the Bar is second to none. I would go back again.

The oyster appetizers were tasty, served with a nice aioli. One dinner had fish that was over cooked and dry.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe same McCormick & Schmick'sLandry's does a good job of letting acquired restaurants keep the magic that made them good in the first place. McCormick & Schmick's does a great job of preparation and consistent service. The Mussels were delicious.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis seafood restaurant nearThis seafood restaurant near the Galleria is a great choice for a meal. No complaints on my visit and I will have no problem with a return visit.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFood has slipped a littleFood has slipped a little since Landrys buying them. But still a good experience.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMVery tasty food and greatVery tasty food and great service. Nothing left to be desired except for dropping the decibels of the "background" music (outside seating).3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Easter-late lunch.The food is much improved! Happy to go back. The service was slow, the reception/hostesses were outstanding.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was not the first timeThis was not the first time that I had dined at McC&Smick, and the experience has never been disappointing. My only complaint this time is that the vegetables (string-beans and carrots) were so undercooked as to be uneatable. I agree that most vegetables one encounters are lamently overcooked, but this was stretching a point too far in the other direction. The waiter quickly offered to return the dish to the kitchen. But my friend and I decided simply to take the veggies home and render them eatable there.As for the background music, the volume probably had to do with earlier large crowds (the day was Easter) and simply hadn't been reduced as crowds dwindled.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an excellent dinnerWe had an excellent dinner at McCormick & Schmick's, Uptown Park. We were celebrating a birthday and it was an unexpected treat to see the birthday boy's name on the menu!
