Diner Reviews
  • "I have had dinner many times, dinner has always been very nice at McCormick and S. Easter brunch was not good at all food was awful service was awful argued with where we wanted to sit even though I had made reservations a month in advance. Would not recommend brunch at all could've had a better breakfast at McDonald's."

  • "I brought several elderly relatives so that we could sit in the quieter back room where they could hear and we could visit. Although they had just closed that room, they agreed to seat us there and it was perfect. Our waitress was great - the food was delicious. We will be back again."

  • "My mother and I celebrated Easter at McCormick & Schmidt. We ate the cashew tilapia and is was delicious. Our waitress, Audrey, was very friendly and courteous and even gave us a bit of Easter candy, I would recommend this restaurant to any one who enjoys good seafood and excellent service."

  • "We were out to dinner last Saturday. The steak was perfectly grilled, my halibut was outstanding and also perfectly grilled. I loved the mashed potatoes with garlic. The desert choices would satisfy anyone. We had the apple pie and ice cream. It was delicious. Rachael was our server and she did a great job. We can't wait to return the next time we're in Kansas City. "

  • "We decided to go here last minute on a Thursday evening. We were seated right away. The atmosphere was elegant, waiter was knowledgable, and the food was AMAZING! I got the blackened mahi mahi and we decided that was the best one out of the two of us. A dessert is a MUST DO - get the chocolate bag! I watched it get split between a family of 6... but it did just as well split between 2 people... Great date night!"

    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Our service was great and the food was pretty good. The only thing that made the experience less than great was that we were served warm beer. We were wondering why it was taking so long and as soon as we took a drink, we knew why. They had just put the beer in ice. The glass was cold, but the beer was warm and who likes warm beer?! They also didn't comp us for that, which was a little disappointing. They should have been honest and recommended to get the draft beer instead."

Nice selection---it was difficult to decide what to have. Looking forward to another opportunity to go there."

  • "We shared the Buttermilk Fried Oysters. They were our favorite thing. I could eat a dozen of them! I ordered a type of fish I had not heard of before, might have been Cobia? It was not on the regular menu. It was ok. It had tomato, mango, & avocado around it. I would not order it again, very bland. Disappointing. The black rice that was served with it, lemon infused, was very good. The music was a little louder than I like. I was glad we were sitting next to each other instead of across the table from each other for conversation. I have eaten the Cashew Crusted Tilipia and it is very good. I recommend it. Also the chocolate bag/sack dessert."

  • "Being located in the Midwest, we don't have many options for fresh seafood. Our dinner was fantastic. The selection was great. It helped having a reservation because I overheard the Hostess tell the walk-ins to expect a 1 hour wait. We only waited 10 minutes. Our server treated us as though we had been coming in everyday - very friendly. Would highly recommend."

  • "We celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary on Saturday and had a great time. The food was excellent and our server was attentive. We always start here with a dozen oysters and they were fabulous. We always have a great time at McCormicks and go pretty frequently. Especially love the bar area as it is lively and the bartenders mix a good stiff drink."

  • "Prices are getting a little steep. Turning your restaurant into a special occasion restaurant rather than a "let's go to McCormick and Schmick's tonight" kind of restaurant. I hate that because we really enjoy your restaurant."

  • "It had been awhile since our last visit so we decided to eat here again. Im not sure what happened to this place but it was awful!!! The food was cold by the time we got it, our server was lazy and seemed like she did not want to be there, and the menu has gone down hill. The managers walked around like they didnt have a clue what was going on, they didnt even know their table numbers. They walked around with our meal and took it to 3 tables before they found us!!! I will never go back, if im going to spend over a 100.00 on a meal I expect a lot better! I would have rather ate at Arbys!!"

  • "Our group had the stuffed Atlantic Salmon (26.99), Seared Sea Scallops (28.99), Ultimate Mixed Grill (32.99), Blackened Mako Shark (26.99), Cashew Crusted Tilapia (19.99) & NY Strip (38.50). Everyone loved the food, we all tried each other's. I had the Ultimate Mixed Grill, which is best route to go if you want to try a few different things! My friend got the actual Seared Scallop dinner & there was only 3 large scallops and my Ultimate Mixed Grill came with 2 large scallops, along with stuffed shrimp(2), grilled shrimp(4) and grilled salmon (nice sized piece)! Ambience is great too! We just wish our waitress had smiled at us the whole night instead of only when she brought us the bill!! :-//"

  • "We have never dined here before... I compared McCormicks to Hereford House and Bristol and they came in third.... thought they would have fared the same.... a little disappointed in the main dish and for a $200+ dinner we thought the service should had been more prompt... probably won't go back for some time.... just not excited enough"

  • "Four of us were there to celebrate an 87th birthday. The food was very good, and of course the restaurant itself is great. Our server did wish a Happy Birthday, but other than that nothing special was done for him. Our server was a bit slow to check on us several times, and our entree's arrived before we had completed our appetizers. After spending about $250 for a meal, a cupcake with a candle would have been nice."

  • "My family and I are on vacation and decided to try M&S for dinner. The table was so crowded we were very uncomfortable. The food was so very mediocre. The raw oysters very gritty, steak tasted bad and the potatoes were so DRY! Good desert though. But what a price to pay for such a poor meal. We had to talk loudly to hear one another it was so noisy. We won't go back."

  • "I loved the overall experience! We had calamari for an appetizer which is one of the Best in Kansas City. We also tried the tuna which was fair. Our meals overall were delicious and well presented on the dinnerware. The shrimp scampi was over cooked and a little tough, but still a great flavor. Our waitress was excellent. She was friendly, helpful, and caring. She has worked for the restaurant only 2 weeks. Great wine list."

  • "Wonderful setting, great service and the food was delicious. Salmon with fresh asparagus and garlic potato on the side receives double thumbs up by both of us! Leave room for dessert. We ordered the Chocolate Bag which was exactly that . filled with white chocolate mousse and fresh berries, topped with whipped cream. OMGosh Heavenly and everyone seems to know about this sweet delight. Our server recommended most of our selections and he was "spot on!" I think this restaurant is great for business and personal events and with the Plaza right outside the door, there is plenty to walk around and experience as you continue to talk about the great meal you just enjoyed!"
