Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I were at the Plaza (KC. MO.) location. This was our 35th wedding anniversary. We booked ahead of time for a table (window view, which we were told we could get) at 7:00. We arrived at 6:40 and ordered a drink at bar. We noticed a couple of window seats open and finally asked why we were not seated. Finally we had to settle for a table at bar side at 7:15. Then we discovered that the Chefs choice was different than on website and manager said they changed it at 4:00? How are we to know that! Then what we wanted to order (Red Snapper) they were out! Service was horrible and waitress said fish was 5 days old. Mgr. offered a drink, wow. We left at that point. This ruined our night."

  • "We visited on a Saturday night. We decided to sit and eat at the bar instead of a table. The bar has great views of the Plaza. The entire bar staff was easily and readily available. Our dinner was wonderful as were the drinks. This is what you expect from McCormick and Schmick's. I do wish they would have handed out all the menus. We missed the summer menu and I may have chosen a different meal if I had seen this."

  • "We were greeted at the door and only had to wait a couple of minutes for our table, with a reservation. The entire staff welcomed us on the way to our table. However that is where the service stopped, out waiter was nice, although somewhat preoccupied and inattentive. He asked if we would like some bread for the table and we said yes, however the bottle of wine and the appetizer made it to the table before the bread. We tried to catch the waiter 3 times as he walked by without even looking at the table. The food was very heavy on the spices! I ordered the seared ahi tuna, nowhere in the description did it say "Blackened" the spice was so hot, I could not taste anything after the first two bites. For the price the food could have been better"

  • "Despite our reservation, we were seated half an hour late. Our server didn't bring us water or menus until we had been seated for nearly 15 minutes, and didn't return for another 10. I understand being busy on a Saturday night, but we had an excessive wait for each step of the meal without a single word of apology or explanation. This type of service is unacceptable. It's a shame, because the meal itself was delicious, but I can't say I'll be dining at M&S again."

  • "Food was good but not great for the price. Waitress was a little over zealous in explaining the menu, which slowed down her ability to deliver food and drinks on time. Otherwise no complaints. Overall good experience and we'd go back if we're in the mood for seafood. Live music on the sidewalk outside was a pleasant surprise."

  • "Oysters on the halfshell were superb. Tasted 2 of each and the subtle flavor differences were stimulating for the palate and conversation. The menu has many choices from halibut to snapper and grouper. The flavors were excellent and the entire meal was relaxing. The service is excellent without cloying or "pieces of flair". We have never had an experience here that was less than 5 stars. It can be expensive, but we'll worth it as a dining experience."

  • "Went for the 35th anniversary menu. Ordered scallops and they came out raw. Told the waitress I was unable to eat them and would like to order a different dish. The manager came over and even though apologies were given I was told that they were cooked properly and that they always cook scallops on the raw side???? Kind of strange. Ended up ordering a steak instead which came out 30 minutes after our original food was served. The steak was good and cooked as ordered."

  • "The Chilean Sea Bass was a delightful treat prepared perfectly - my husband order the blackened tuna which he asked to have lightly blackened - they definately prepare each dish with care"

  • "The appetizers, clam chowder and lobster bisque were delicious! Also the dessert was very good! My husband got steak and it was excellent, three of us got the chefs special red grouper and it was very bland. The service was very slow. We were celebrating two birthdays, glad we went for the experience, it is a beautiful restaurant, but was very disappointed in the fish and the service."

  • "The appetizer shrimp kisses was ok, that being said it was served cold and the corn relish it was with didn't compliment the dish. But the main course was excellent!"

  • "Have tried M&S at the plaza twice now since Landry has become the new owners. This most recent trip was consistent with the last, the menu has become more ordinary similar to many seafood restaurants while the prices have gone up. Many seafood choices with the unique recipes or sauces are no longer on the menu, and those that are do not taste the same. Had the Jamaican Rum sauce with crusted pecans this time, it was watered down, tasteless and the crust had no pecans. The calamari appetizer had as many vegetables as calamari in it, while the price has gone up a lot since last time. Service was better this time but the servers and bartenders are not of the same quality/expertise as the past. Great location and venue is all that remains."

  • "McCormick and Schmick's has taken a step down with Landry's ownership. The food and servide are good, but this is a step down from years ago. Too bad!"

  • "My boyfriend and I had a good experience overall. The only thing we did notice was the live music was good, but a little loud. Also the complimentary dessert we received was overcooked, but we still ate it. THANKS!"

  • "Food and drinks were excellent! Service was slow and they did not really honor my Landry Member card priority seating - we had Open Table reservations for 7:15 and were not seated till 8 pm, though I had noted my Landry card."

  • "This was a good experience. I had reservations at 7:00 for our 45th wedding anniversary. We checked in and took a seat, waiting till 7:25. No one ever came and said they were running behind, etc. I thought the hostesses(3) cold have been much morer informative instead of just focusing their attention on the computer. After being seated our waiter was wonderful and the food was great. First impressions are very important and you need someone that is good at it, the people there were NOT!"

The waiter was phenomenal and every dish that was ordered exceeded our expectations. Even the Chicken Linguine was magnificent! Of course, the chocolate bag was as decadent as I remembered! Thanks for making my daughter's birthday celebration SO SPECIAL!"

We were disappointed in the service, the anbience and the type of diners. We will probably not dine at this restaurant again while in the Kansas City Plaza area."

  • "The food was excellent. The atmosphere was also excellent. The only draw back was the service was not up to par. You will be waiting for awhile. It took nearly 30 minutes just to get our appetizer. Outside of the subpar service, it's a good experience and the food was great."
