  • "It's a nice place to go for a special occasion. Waiter was friendly and the food was pretty good, minus the overcooked sprimp cocktail which I thought was over priced..."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"

  • "If you're looking for great seafood with a wonderful ambient air and high energy then this is the place for you! Sit outside and you get the wonderful live music scene. Inside is a bit more relaxed. The food is absolutely amazing and the service is too notch!"

  • "The food was fantastic, the server was perfect. A nice balance of attentiveness and discrete absence. The only problem was the acoustics - it was a bit too loud."

  • "I took my family to celebrate a birthday. It had been a few years since I had dined in the restaurant. It had been updated and was very nicely decorated! 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 have dined at McCormick's for several years for special occasions, e.g. wedding anniversary, birthdays, etc. The latest dining experience was to celebrate my wife's special birthday. 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."

  • "Always love this place! Your food is amazing--service impeccable-such a consistent great spot for really great food and drinks."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We sat on the patio for an early dinner. We waited quite awhile for our cocktails. When they arrived mine was undrinkable. After several attempts to get the waiter's attenion and ask for a new drink, he suggested adding syrup to it. I had to insist on a fresh drink. He was largely inattentive throughout the meal. Since we have eaten at M&S many times we were suprised at the quality of the food. The portions were small, and the fish overwhelmed by a huge portion of green beans to fill the plate. My tilapia was beyond mushy. We both left disappointed and feeling like the experience was certainly not worth the money we spent. Again, such a change from past experiences, but with so many other dining options, we will not return to M&S."

  • "Relaxing spot any time of day for any outdoor dining. Quieter on patio than inside when restaurant is busy. Reservations highly recommended for holidays and special occasions. Some starters can be small in size...always ask if sharing a number of small dishes, especially if more than 2 in your party."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Great music on the patio, but really stupid to make them stop at 8:00! Nice seating outside, but cushion and table both dirty! Great food, but apple dessert NOT crispy at all, mushy in fact. Service was great, but I ordered my drink and it didn't come until our dinner came!"

  • "McCormick and Schmick's is one of our top three restaurants in Kansas City. The food is always top rate, the servers are knowledgeable and helpful, and the dome room is our favorite spots to share a meal with friends. This trip was made memorable for the seasonable wild salmon available. Anyone from Kansas City would be pleased with their experience at McCormick and Schmick's."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "The first time my husband and I went it was perfect. Everything was great. Our waitress was so good and made us feel special. We went for fathers day weekend & I was disappointed this time. The food was good but my Caesar Salad was not good. Our waitress this time was not good. She did not attend to our needs at all. She walked by several times without even saying a word to us. Our food took forever and she never came by to let us know it was going to be awhile or assure us it was coming or anything. She seemed like she was scared of us at times. The only time she spoke to us was to try and sell us dessert at the end. We went with the intention of tipping pretty well but for the service we received we tipped on how we were treated."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We celebrated my wife's birthday with friends and family. The bar and table service was excellent - friendly and knowledgable. But it's disappointing when the sides are better than the main course fish dishes. The andouille mashed potatoes were killer, as was the creamed spinach. The fish prep was just OK - my blackened mahimahi was bland, my daughters salmon was a bit over cooked. Appetizers, oysters and calamari, were really good and the desserts were decadent ( order to share)."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "The food is always great. There is a very wide selection of entree's. Fish, specialty fish dishes, or steak it all is done RIGHT. Eat outside or in the dining room. Drinks are always well made. A great place to be."

  • "This was my first time eating here. I had the greatest time interacting with the oyster bar manager Nathan. There was quite a variety to choose from so he recommended one based on our conversation, Nathan sent a sample (excellent). I frequent New Orleans and one of my favorite places serves chargrilled oysters with a special sauce. Nathan said we don't serve them like that, however let me ask the chef if we could? The chef said yes just tell your server(Zack) we talked. Who by the way was excellent also. I had to send them back to grill a little longer and they came back perfect. I will try and get them to make up the sauce next time. Yes I said next time. They won a new customer based on the service that was provided."
