Diner Reviews
  • "Although the server was pleasant the drink that I received was not made correctly. An Arnold Palmer should be at least 1/2 to 2/3 tea and the rest lemonade. What I received was mainly lemonade. Then I asked to have another one to another server that brought our food and I told our server that I asked the other person and I ended up with two more Arnold Palmers. First, I shouldn't have to ask to get another drink it should automatically come. Secondly, there should be better communication amongst the servers. I still gave a fairly good tip to our server only because he seemed new and that he was trying."

  • "Waitress service needs to improve. waitress got to our table and did not introduce herself and did not offer us drinks nor entrees. And when time to order came she did not give any sugestions about food or plates. Other than that food taste was delicious."

  • "Not at all what I thought it was going to be. Food a step above Applebee's. Fine for maybe a business lunch but don't go expecting it to be romantic, or remotely classy. Customers resembled maybe likened to an old country buffet....Server started out good but was hard to find at end, also disregarded my private request I had made on open table/prior to, causing me to do the very thing I didn't want to- which was to get up, track him down to ask about bday dessert which then made it obvious a surprise was coming. That said, at that point it didn't matter anymore anyway bc we were already laughing about the quality of everything throughout dinner. What else can you do..? Won't return. I should've investigated more b4 making the reservation."

  • "Service (Christy) was friendly and competent. Lobster appetizer (which she recommended) was outstanding; stuffed shrimp was excellent. I had shrimp, sausage, mac and cheese. Was tasteless and was unable to identify any of components. In addition it did not look particularly appetizing. Would have sent back except for companion."

  • "We were celebrating a special occasion and McCormick & Schmick accommodated all our needs -- they gave us access to the table early to decorate and gave us space to park some of the decor during brunch. Our waiter, Richard, was incredibly friendly and hustled to meet our many individual drink, appetizer and entree orders. We were allowed to keep the table from 12:30 until 4:00 without a fuss -- they were terrific! M&S definitely added to the occasion."

  • "Top Sirlon steak tasted like shoe leather, worst steak ever, thin as a pancake. Broccoli was all stems. Side salad was full of salad dressing, drowning. Ahi Tuna, too much spice"

This is a very well rounded restaurant and offers good choices far anyone. We did dine mid-week and therefore the dining room and bar area were very quiet, which suited us just fine."

  • "Knowing and thinking that Valentine's Day was going to be very busy. My boyfriend and I celebrated it on the 15th instead...trying to avoid the craziness of the day. We had reservations...thinking it was at 7, oops it wasn't until 745, but they kindly accommodated us at sat us at 720. The service was very slow, it took minutes for our orders to be taken and it was 2 hours later did we finally get our food. After a dozen drink refills between us and two breads we were actually full. Our entrees didn't to get to us until 945, by then we were so tired we didn't even look at the dessert menu. Was this just a bad night? Yes, because this restaurant is truly a good one. I would go back with no hesitation."

  • "Came here for a birthday celebration, but what a mistake. Should have trusted all the low marks and poor reviews on Yelp as they were all telling the truth. Very bad dining experience mainly due to the lack of service. Our waiter was incompetent and disappeared a lot during our meal. We asked for coffee. Server brought over a cup, pot of coffee, 3 cubes of sugar, and a serving spoon on multiple trips. Who the heck gives a customer a big serving spoon to stir their coffee with?!?! We asked for bread and our waiter brings over a quarter loaf of 2 pieces to share amongst 5 people? That's not right. Sadly, I have had better service at my local Denny's diner. Food was average at best with the sides arriving luke warm and lacked presentation."

  • "We were very disappointed in our meal. It was Valentines day and one of us wanted a steak and the other seafood. Thought this would be perfect. The steak had the flavor of a quick pan fry, which is not what you would expect and the seafood left a lot of grease on my plate, which none of it specified fried or buttered. The lobster potatoes were flavorless as well as looking a bit sloppy. The meal over all left us hungry for flavor and we went home and prepared a small meal after spending over $120.00. (this would not have been over priced for a flavorful and satisfying dinner) The bread, coffee and dessert were excellent."

  • "Having been to this restaurant before, we were very disappointed with the service as it didn't at all compare to our previous visits. After ordering it took 20 minutes before we were served, and between courses it took just as long. Our dinner reservations were at 6pm, because we had a play to attend at 8pm in the area. We barely finished to time and had to rush like crazy to make it in time for the play 10 minutes away. Our server was aware of our schedule when we were seated, but he was very slow. Others seated after us received their dinner ahead of us. Very disappointed."

  • "Chose this restaurant based on the information I found online and it was a mistake. Next time, I will try first before committing. Food was excellent. I had the filet and it was very tender and flavorful. My date ordered Parmesan chicken was was brought out Parmesan sole. By all accounts, it was a good meal, just not what she expected. We notified the waitress of the mistake but told her that it was not necessary to change the meal. At the end, she stated that she had charged us for the chicken because it was less expensive than the fish. I did not say anything, but I would have expected the meal to be comped after a mistake like than. Bottom line, first and last visit there."

  • "Dinner was fresh. The plates and food were very hot. I always expect my food to be served this way. Anything less, I do not trust the quality and send it back. I recommend this restaurant. The fresh bread and special cocktails were also delicious. Everything is pricey but good quality."

  • "We went there on Valentine's Day. Our reservation was for 6:45 PM, and we arrived on time and seated almost immediately. The waitress came and we ordered our meals. After about 20 minutes, we noticed that other diners had bread so we flagged down our waitress when we were able. She was very apologetic and then delivered it. The bread we had to ask for was the only food we were served from 6:45 until apx. 7:30, when our meals finally arrived. We were very hungry at this point, and I asked for extra bread to eat with our meal. My wife wasn't hungry enough for the extra. This restaurant needs to redesign its service so that patrons are served bread immediately, and are served their meals within 30 minutes of arrival."

  • "Booked our reservation for dinner only 2 weeks in advance of V Day so had to settle for 5:15pm - reserve early for occasions, Were seated immediately upon arrival. Unlike some restaurants, the space was not jammed with tables - very comfortable and relaxed design. Food was good, server was excellent, price was reasonable. We lingered but never felt that we were being rushed."

  • "We experienced horrible service from the beginning. Although we noted that we had our 95 year-old dad with us, and his walker, we were still seated at the very back of the restaurant. It was crowded and noisy. We placed drink orders and had to wait about 20 minutes; longer with the food. The waiter disappeared for most of our time there. The food was mediocre (we had salads, fish and steak). We will not return and cannot recommend this restaurant."
