    My wife and I were celebrating my recent promotion and had a great evening - we were not rushed and had time to relax, talk and enjoy ourselves. The restaurant has an excellent menu and we both enjoyed our meals. The waiter recommended an excellent wine to go with the meal that we also enjoyed.

    I chose the special which was swordfish which was outstanding on a bed of spinach. The only suggestion to make it better was to serve it with a wild rice or garlic mashed potatoes along with the spinach.

    It was a slow night. The restaurant was practically empty. It had a dated appearance.The crab tower appetizer was bland. Some of the chunks of mango in the dish seemed to be frozen. The rest of the food was tasty however, I did not care for the bland and boring pieces of broccoli and carrots placed on my plate.

    The service was terrible, our server was extremely rude we had to talk to a manager about getting a different server and we did. The food and drinks took forever to get to our table and we weren't greeted for 15 minutes after being sat. Overall the experience there was terrible and I will never go there again and will tell people not to go there.

    We enjoy McCormick & Schmick's but do not go often because of the prices. Extras such as side dishes are over priced, as is the wine by the glass. The Chef's special is more of a bargain. My entree was the flounder and it was excellent. The molten chocolate dessert is scrumptious. We like the privacy of the curtained booths; however, they make it difficult to catch the waiter's eye.

    Came here for my birthday dinner with my girlfriend one Friday evening. Made a reservation through OpenTable and were quickly seated. The waiter was fantastic - friendly and very knowledgeable about all the menu items (and we asked a lot of questions!). The food was delicious, from the bacon wrapped shrimp to the clam chowder to the steaks. And, since it was my birthday, we splurged on desert - everything we ordered was great! Only complaint I have is that as the place started to fill up, it took a while to get our desert and the check. Otherwise, friendly staff, complimentary valet (those guys did a great job too), and an overall enjoyable experience.

    We were looking for a nice mid-week dinner. Went to mcCormick's corporate website and saw a 3 course special for $24.99. We like mcCormick's so made reservations. Local mcCormick's is charging $28.99 instead of $24.99. I ordered the beef and shrimp combo. Beef was good, shrimp were small and soggy. I chose molten lava cake for dessert. It was about the size of two marshmallows and as cold as the ice cream served with it ...not the hot molten lava cake you'd expect. All in all a mediocre dining experience on a quiet Wednesday night .

    We had our usual delicious and reasonably priced meal. The background music, however, was more suited for a dance club than relaxed dining. I suppose we heard the music only because it was a very quiet night in the restaurant; other times we heard only the boom-boom of the bass -- not very relaxing either.

    The restaurant was VERY hard to find as it was in the fist floor of a hidden office complex. We were celebrating a special occasion and therefore wanted a "special" experience. We had excellent wait staff and our own private cubby hole with a curtain for dinner. I would say the food was good, but not spectacular. For an appetizer We had the calamari, which was "unspectacular" and included some other deep fried veggies?? I had crab cakes that were a bit too bready, lumps of bread actually. My husband had a combo platter with stuffed shrimp and salmon. The salmon looked a bit overcooked and the stuffed shrimp again were very bready instead of crabby. For a "famous" seafood restaurant, the food was just so so. This was my first time here

  • Landry Management

    Dined on 8/20/2014
    I used to enjoy the ambiance of M&S more before the Landry group purchased the M&S chain of restaurants. Landry has stripped off many of the decorative touches that made each place unique and now it looks just a like one of many of an indifferent chain of slop shops. The music used to be pleasant, unobtrusive background sound. Now it is more intrusive hip-hop kind of junk. As business investment decisions, these moves may make sense, but they have disappointed me as a loyal customer.

    The extended family came for a dinner ranging all age groups and there was something for everyone. Appetizers for sharing came out and there was enough for all to get samplings. Ordered the main courses and overall everything was ok. In my instance the fish could have been cooked a minute less. I think the cooking technique of putting on generous amounts of butter mitigated that dried overcooked fish texture. Service was spot on as our server was very friendly, polite, and looked out for the kids. I have been there many times over the years. I think the main dining area could use a little makeover after all these years.

    My husband and I enjoyed the stained glass light fixtures and the decor- traditional, classy and "cozy feeling". The food was very good, especially the homemade sauces that came with the calamari. The only thing missing is that bread wasn't served before the meal.
