A word from McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Minneapolis
Unique to Minneapolis, the restaurant has several "snugs" (private booths for six with draperies) in the formal dining room. The handsome interior features handcrafted mahogany, stained glass (depicting Minnesota heritage), brass accents, and Tiffany-style lamps lending a traditional note to the interior.

McCormick & Schmick's also features a lively bar experience, with a bar staff that practices traditional mixology -- hand-shaken cocktails using only bottled sodas, freshly squeezed juices and premium liquors.

Diner Reviews
  • "Great food, service and meal choices. Fruit flies ruined the ambience somewhat."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "this was our first trip and we were very pleased. we had a knowledgeable, friendly server; excellent food and a nice wine selection. Overall a very pleasant experience."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "The calamari appetizer was excellent- light and crispy breading and very tender. Halibut was prepared to perfection. Our friends had the crab cakes and while they had lots of crab in them they were a little mushy-they wouldn't necessarily recommend them. The warm applepie with walnuts and carmel stole the day. Don't miss it!!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The seafood is the best in the city. With reasonable prices, great service, and dining selection."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I had the tenderloin and it was overcooked and tough to cut and chew. I know that their specialty is seafood but if it is on the menu, you should expect the same quality. The drinks tasted as if there was no alcohol in them, the people next to our table complained about the same thing."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Food and service were great as usual. I asked about a variation on a menu item and there was no problem and it was prepared perfectly."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Great lunch! Service was good, food better and a nice view of Nicollet Mall."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "I made reservations for 2 to take my husband here for his birthday dinner. We called because we were running a little late and they said no problem. However, when we arrived, they did not have a table for us. Since my husband loves seafood, we chose to sit in the bar (where it was very noisy). The very busy bartender was our waiter. He was cordial but we had to ask for a basket of bread and he brought me the wrong salad. Overall, the food was okay but the service was very disappointing. With two small kids at home, my husband and I do not go out often and this was definitely not the birthday dinner I envisioned when I planned our night out. We will not be back."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "My wife and I absolutely loved this place, the food was amazing if you like seafood and our server Jason was very delightful. This is our new go to when we're in the area."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We had a less than desirable dining experience due to our waiter. After our food was served, he failed to inquire if everything was OK and to serve beverages requested. After 20 - 25 minutes we were able to get our waiter's attention to have one of our meals corrected and receive missing beverages. One of the meals had dessert, which was never offered. We were, however, extremely pleased with the response by the Hostess and General Manager. As a result of their actions, we will return."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "It had been a long time since I visited this restaurant, it won't be a long before the next time. It is a nice restaurant with excellent food."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "The staff was courteous, attenttive and efficient. The food was being served reasonably quickly. The appertizers were light and refreshing. The main can be somewhat oily/greasy but otherwise good tasting. Overall, a positive Thursday/Friday work lunch outing experience."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "We are habitual return customers. That should say it all. The "new" decor is very nice and really makes a difference in the overall look of the space. We always enjoy our evening at M&S. It is our 'go to' place on theater nights."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Service (server not very knowledgeable and lack of enthusiasm) was acceptable but all else was well done. Will be back."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Restaurant is good, food consistent, just starting to be a bit stale, seems as though the servers are tired not vibrant like a Manny's or Oceanair. Menu stays the same, just needs to step for the prices they desire. But overall food good"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "I had taken a date to McCormick's this past week. I love the romatic feel of the privacy booths, not sure if the chef was out this night food is usually mouth watering this time it was OK. Thanks to our server her was the best."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We stopped at McCormicks and Schmicks prior to the One Republic concert. Our waiter Tony was more than attentive and everything we ordered was spectacular. Right up and including the wedge salad. We had a chefs special Swordfish Casino that was out of this world."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "excellent business lunch setting with top tier service"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "the portion seemed rather small but the sauce was delicious. I was not made aware there were sides that came with it so was disappointed upon arrival that I received two sides that i am unable to digest. Fortunately the waiter went out of his way to provide me with sides that were agreeable.The waiter was most attentive even though he was working the bar. This has not been my experience in the past in the bar area normally feeling neglected. So salute to my waiter for his attentiveness."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Our waitress was fantastic. This is the second time this past week she has waited on me. She was so friendly and so efficient. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We had a very nice experience. Wanted to try a seafood place downtown and this fit the bill. Food was excellent and the atmosphere fairly quiet for a Saturday night. Enjoyed it very much."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The atmosphere was pleasant, the hostess was a bit abrupt. We showed up 15 minutes early for our reservation to an empty dining room. We were told we wouldn't be seated until the time of our reservation. I ordered the Steak and Lobster and the steak medallions were a little tough for the price. The bartender was very good, drinks were very good also. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and recommended an excellent wine within our specific parameters."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Wonderful, as always. My only suggestion was that it was my birthday and instead of letting me look at a dessert menu and select my complimentary dessert, I was first offered a chocolate selection that I declined as I don't like chocolate. The server then suggested a crème brulee, which was delicious. However, rather than the server ordering for me, I would have appreciated the opportunity to MAKE MY OWN SELECTION."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We go out to eat at least 3 times a week and I can honestly say we had better service at a Burger King. Food was average but will never go back here with this inexcusable service!!!"
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "We sat outside on the patio - our reservation was not for the patio - and we loved it! It was fun to have a drink and small plate of food while enjoying the MN Summer weather."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "The food was delicious but our waiter was slow. He never even checked back after dinner was served. We even asked 2 people to send him over so we could order more wine and we were almost done with the meals before he returned. Then, he complained about his tables rather than apologize. Unfortunate that we wanted to spend more money and could not. I would think we would get better service when spending hundreds of dollars at your restaurant."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We brought two of our three children to McCormick & Schmick's restaurant on 02 June 2014 to celebrate our 14 year old's graduation from 8th grade. It was myself, my wife, our 19 year old daughter and 14 year old son. Our son had the filet mignon, which he loved. My wife had surf & turf, and white the lobster was only as big as a crawfish, she enjoyed her meal. I had the stuffed salmon, which is always delicious and our daughter had the bacon wrapped shrimp, which she didn't like and didn't finish because she didn't like it. The table adjacent us was very nice and took some photos of our family, but our waitress was sub-par. I'd say the prices were overly inflated for not very stellar food; like Manny's for instance."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "Very noisy, food was good but service was slow. Brought a friend there for a birthday dinner and told waiter we had a 8:00 pm show when seated. Unfortunately at 7:45 had to wave down the waiter for the check was given the birthday dessert with the comment "Maybe you can get one bite in" with the bill. Had to run to the theatre 2 blocks down and missed the opening. I know which restaurant not to go to again in DT Mpls."

  • "As always, they deliver the goods. Great service, great food. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Rarely do we encounter a place that respects and understands fish away from the Northwest, but this place does. It was creative, the presentation attractive, and the fish of the best quality. Sauces not draped over the fish, textures perfect, with contrasts distinct but subservient to the flavor. Coming from Alaska, we eat local fish and shellfish, so our standards are high. Alaskans take note -- this place did scallops & fish better than S&S. The server was knowledgeable, attentive but not hovering. An excellent experience, worth every penny. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "must have been short-staffed as it took forever to get a drink and the food. and the food was just OK"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Sat outside on a beautiful evening. Dinner was delicious and the pace was just right. Only complaint was the piped in music was a bit loud."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Went to M&S for a business luncheon with a large client and the food was incredible. Service was amazing. The only complaint I have is that the music we turned up quite loud making it hard to converse with clients at the table. "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "The food and service are normally very good, this particular night it was crowded so the service was quite slow, took almost 20 minutes to get a drink and quite awhile before bread and soup came. Chowder has far too many potatoes, but the seafood combo was quite good."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "McCormick & Schmick's serves up good food at a fair price for lunch. The menu is varied and interesting, offering a wide variety for all tastes. Our food was very well prepared and filled with flavor. Recommended."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Booked a table for 10 people, arrived 30 minutes early because we got done with pictures early and they had our table ready within minutes. We were seated in a separate room from the rest of the restaurant (even though we did not specifically request it), which made for a nice, quiet ambience. Food was absolutely amazing, and the waitstaff was extremely professional/polite. HIGHLY impressed and will definitely return. (Plus the bread and truffle butter served before the meal was to die for)"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "When I entered McCormick and Schmicks the spoiling for my birthday started, i got to choose where I wanted to sit and I said,"can I sit in this VIP enclosed booth?" My server said,"of course it's your birthday," then I was handed a menu with my name on it, that was a cute touch, the food was amazing! Our server always made sure my husband and myself was happy the whole time. Then once my meal was over I was given a free birthday dessert that was just as fabulous as the rest of my experience here. That was only my second time coming to McCormick and Schmicks, but when your a mother and always doing the catering too at home with your family it was really nice to come somewhere and be catered to and appreciated, so I can't wait to come back!"

  • "Ate here on May 16th. Not packed in fact really not even busy. Ordered the sea bass and it was ok. Wouldn't order it again for the $36 price tag. Clam chowder just ok. The shrimp on the appetizer menu was my favorite food of the night. Atmosphere was good and nice location with windows overlooking nicolet mall street. "
