    We like this place for groups because of the diversity of the menu. Also, the servers seem to be used to waiting on larger tables (6+) and that can be hard to find in Kansas City. Even though it is a "chain" restaurant, the Plaza location of McCormick and Schmick's doesn't feel that way at all, and there is never a sense at all of that. We had great service, great meals, just around a wonderful celebration.

    I took my girlfriend to the restaurant. I requested a view of the Plaza since I was proposing to her later in the evening so I wanted it to be special. She loved the King Crab Legs and I tried and loved the Australian Barramundi. Everything was perfect. Thank you.... And by the way. She said yes!!

    Food was average in taste, however, lovelyl in presentation. Although we told our server we needed to be out in 1 hr and 20 minutes, we were served food and check within 40 minutes and would have enjoyed slower service. We certainly would not go to such a pricey dinner for fast food! Overall we were disappointed with the experience and have no desire to return.

    I spent many years living in Washington, DC, where fresh seafood is always a hit. In Kansas City, there are few really good seafood restaurants. Thankfully, McCormick & Schmick's does well helping fill that void. Great variety (including many choices for those not craving seafood), and great seafood for those seeking it here in land-locked Kansas City.

    The ambiance made our 17 year old feel special. The food he ordered was delicious - King Crab Legs, very plump and the meat came out of the shell well, Potatoes were flavorful and crispy on the outside and Corn on the Cobb had a grilled flavor. He got special attention with a free molten lava cake topped with ice cream dessert. I ordered the scallops and they were so tender, juicy and very flavorful. My husband had the swordfish, a little fishy tasting, but not bad. The restaurant had a very peaceful feeling with several bright points with beautiful art and architecture with the round area. Would go there again for a special occasion. A little too pricey to be a regular for us.

    Dined on 11/9/2014
    Came to eat for a complimentary meal on the sunday before veterans day. Fantastic food, had the fish and chips meal, and my wife had the utterly fantastic stuffed shrimp. The problem was our initial server. While I knew that my meal was complimentary, my wife had a detailed order, and the server, without being asked, starts quoting prices, as if we cannot pay! When we pointed out that we didn't ask for prices, she starts arguing with us! She informs us she cannot make the requested drink (coke and lemonade combined), and overall was just miserable. Our visit was rescued by the assistant manager, who was absolutely fantastic, and was our server for the rest of the meal, and gave us a free dessert. Visit this place when they are not busy.

    We dine at McCormick & Schmick's for several special occasions through out the year. The food and service are always excellent. This dinning experience was exactly the same high quality. The restaurant was very busy as the Veteran's Day appreciation promotion was going on. We had made our reservations early and were seated shortly after arriving. our evening was all we expected.

    M&S offered a free meal to Veterans from a limited menu. I went with three friends and we had an amazing time. I looked the restaurant up on Tripadvisor while a number of people had issues with prices, everyone loves the food. I had the wedge salad and cedar plank salmon and both were hands down amazing. The service was welcoming and effecient. I have nothing but good things to say about this restaurant.

    Prompt on seating my party of six, including one teen and a 9 year-old. Service was quite good considering the "crush" of veterans arriving for a free meal honoring them on Veterans Day (my self included). Food was ample and served hot from the kitchen. Wine was 50% off for vets, which was a pleasant surprise. Overall, a wonderful afternoon for my family and sweetheart friend. I have booked ahead for next year's tribute by M&S to honor the country's vets.

    The steak medallions that were paired with the lobster tail were very disappointing. It was more like strips of steak for a salad. Also the vegetables were just potatos. It would have been nice to have some green vegetables paired. When spending a couple hundred dollars, the food was not worth it. Go somewhere else and save your money.

    The atmosphere, the food, the options... all are nice. What made this particular visit so memorable was the service. Uh-mazing! Attentive without being invasive. Helpful without being pushy. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu, the bar offerings, alternative dining options (my son is vegetarian and my mother has issues with gluten and sugar) and was quick to help us work through our questions and land on enjoyable selections for our meal. The best time I've ever had at M&S.

The kale pear pecan salad and shrimp trio were out of this world too! The presentation on the plate was beautiful! It was quiet and very relaxing. We felt like we were treated like stars!

    Unfortunately, we were rather disappointed with the food. Although it was good, it seemed to lack the superb taste that we had been told about by some of our friends. The dishes seemed quite bland and again, it was good, just not up to what I had hoped for, especially seeing as how last weekend we dined at another well known seafood establishment and were very impressed with their food quality. Sorry, but my wife and I both said the same thing as we left the restaurant.

    We are from out of town and came to KC to go to the Chiefs game. We were a party of six and McCormick and Schmick's was able to easily and comfortably accommodate us. We enjoyed the privacy of our table in that we were able to close the curtain which added to the ambiance. Everyone loved the food. The chocolate bag was a huge hit and one of our party said it was the best dessert she had ever had. The service was excellent and there were no complaints at all. We will definitely be back the next time we are in KC.

The waiter was very professional with a very positive personality and was always there to help/provide service. It was a fun night and there were many choices in the food.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/22/2014
    I had not been here in a year and a half. I saw prices had soared, portions had shrunk, and food was not as good. Example: sauteed spinach that comes with almost of of the fish was too salty to eat. And that's saying something as I love salt. One of the items McCormick & Schmick's used to be know for was fresh oysters. I was looking forward to ordering some, but not at $3.00 for 1! Even with someone else paying I wasn't going to do that to them. Next time my business associate takes me to dinner we will go elsewhere for better value for money spent. They have priced themselves off my list of favorite dining spots on the Plaza.
