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
  • "I wanted a piece of our ahi tuna steak. I ordered the ahi tuna and what I received was five little strips of pre-cut tuna. It comes to them shipped like that. The menu mentions nothing about little strips, I assumed I was getting a tuna steak. It was very disappointing to pay $30 for five little pieces of tuna."

  • "We again had an excellent dining experience. The steak and lobster dinner was wonderful and could not beat the price."

  • "This restaurant used to be our favorite. Food was always outstanding and the cozyness of the booths was always romantic. Our last dining experience was complete opposite. The food was fine - nit outstanding as we have had in the past. The remodel to tables made it feel more like an Applebee's or TGIFridsys. McCormick is a place we would go to celebrate something but now, we will turn to somewhere else. We missed the cozy booths and the romantic atmosphere - it was replaces with more business type setting. And, on a Friday night, those wandering Nicollete Mall were able to walk up to the window and stare at us -not something we enjoyed either."

  • "I eat here often. The music was too loins and too much rap. Not appropriate for dining. The waitress needed some experience and needed to speak up over the music. My order of stuffed shrimp was tasteless. Had to ask for lemon. 3 itty bitty slices arrived. Really? Slices? I was relieved when I left."

  • "The lobster bisque was to die for - awesome! The rest of our meal had good flavor but the lemon sauce overpowered the rich sweet flavor of the seafood."

  • "I ordered a cobb salad and lobster bisque soup. Both were amazing - fresh and flavorful. Portions were perfect for lunch. I was very satisfied with what I had and the price."

  • "The fish was out of this world, as usual, and the service was top notch. I had to ding one star because there were fruit flies all over us as we ate."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "The waiter was quite pompous and provided limited attention to our needs. The food was predictable and on the salty side--generally a disappointing experience. I've been to other locations where the food and service were much better, so will not write McCormick & Schmick's off of my list of restaurants."

  • "We had an early reservation for 8 prior to the Paul McCartney concert in Minneapolis. So many restaurants won't seat you until the full party is there, but not here. I was seated immediately, and the rest of our party trickled in and no one made us feel anything but good. Our waitperson, Heather, was outstanding. The food was wonderful as were the drinks. Even though we were a large group we were allowed separate checks for each couple, there was not an automatic gratuity added to the bill. Also, even though we had an early reservation, we weren't hurried to leave. We couldn't have been happier."

  • "I had the chef swordfish over a bed of spinach and mushrooms and it was SO good! My husband had a steak which he said was "ok". He thought it was a little on the thin side, expected a thick juicy steak. But the flavor was good."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We had another great experience at McCormick and Schmick's for lunch, this time with outdoor seating on a nice day. It was perfect, and the staff readily accomodated our Open Table request for such. We were asked if we wanted bread, and enjoyed splitting a warm loaf. My mother and I split the Lobster Cobb salad, which the staff graciously prepared with such in mind: 1 salad, 2 plates, 2 sides of dressing, and blue cheese on the side. My husband had the catfish for the first time, and was raving about how tasty it was. He definitely plans on ordering that again! Our drinks were refilled for a small charge, and everyone enjoyed their lunch feast!"

  • "Overall good food, it just really salty, the scallop, swordfish, and the clam chowder that we had were all really salty."

  • "Went to M&S because I had a Landry's gift card and I figured the food would be better than the lackluster meals I'd already had while visiting Minneapolis. I was wrong. Ordered the heirloom tomato salad, it was bland and the balsamic vinegar tasted strange. Had the trio of shrimp for my entree. The sauce for the shrimp scampi was tart and not like a scampi sauce at all. The fried shrimp had no flavor so I drenched them in cocktail sauce. The 2 shrimp with crab meat were ok, but also had no flavor. Only good thing was I had a nice waitress but the food was not the standard fare they typically have."

  • "Our waiter was PAINFULLY awkward. He was overly present when we didn't want him to be and not around when he should've been. Also made some bad recommendations on the menu. Disappointing but the dessert is always top notch so that made up for it a little bit."

  • "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!!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
