Diner Reviews
  • "This was my 5th visit. Very unsatisfactory. The restaurant was open for business but great service and great food were not at my table."

  • "Nothing exceptional. Good food. Fair service. A little pricey. Good for a first date for a young couple. Not for the experienced seafood lover though. Would go back if I was out of town and saw a Mc & Sch I would go but don't really have any plans on going back to the one here in Philly. Menu is a little misleading especially about the appetizers being enough for two. They aren't. Now that I think about it, I might go on Restaurant week."

  • "I frequented this restaurant ! I enjoyed the menu and the time spent with many friends. This is a restaurant to put on your list. My sister had wedding dinner here also and that is another reason I keep coming back."

  • "I imagined that it would be a ghost-town in mid-July, but McCormick & Schmick's was buzzing at lunchtime...and on a Monday, no less. I was there for a business meeting over an early lunch and enjoyed good food and good service - not too intrusive and not at all evasive. I had the blackened Mahi-Mahi served with spinach and mashed potatoes with Andouille sausage. Nice, lunch-sized portion. Flavorful and prepared perfectly. Stingy on the bread for the table, though. Especially since the Cherry Hill (NJ) location has closed, this is the only area M&S that's convenient. Having had less than stellar experiences in the Center City Phila. location before, I was very pleasantly surprised with this recent visit & look forward to returning soon."

  • "We celebrated our 41st anniversary. This was mentioned to the waiter and he wished us a happy anniversary. The food was delicious. I ordered the fried shrimp. It was delicious. However, it did not agree with me later in the evening and I was in the bathroom most of the night. I attribute it to the fact that I never eat fried food, but I was so hungry for fried shrimp. Never again!!! Overall, very nice evening. The waiter needed to check on us more often. There was a longer than usual wait for our dessert and the bill."

  • "My meal was absolutely delicious. My wife said her meal was delicious. So needless to say we really enjoyed our dinner. The only complaint that I had was the bread that was served before the meal. They served this regular roll/bread that wasn't warm or anything. They brought one piece to share. Not reAlly a big deal I just think it didn't match the rest of the meal. Over all it was fantastic and we are definitely going back!"

  • "The last time I went to MCormick and Schmick's it was great. So I was very evicted to take a client for lunch. I ordered a lobster Cobb salad that had very little lobster for $22.00 and was not great! Thought it was just my entree but the others also commented that theirs was just fair. I would not recommend this restaurant."

  • "Appetizer I wanted...ran out of key ingredient (avocado). Salad I was interested in....no tomatoes or cheese can't remember. My husband's side order of grilled asparagus...hmmmm...out of that as well. Husband's Virgin Bloody Mary came to table without any garnish."

  • "We have eaten here many other times, so we chose to celebrate our anniversary at M & S. What a mistake. They were out of both the appetizer and entree I wanted. The waitress was lackadaisical, my steak was flavorless, my husband's fish was ok. The waitress never asked how the meal was, I think she knew. I'll think twice before I go back."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The food took entirely too long to come out. The waiter seemed to be disengaged. We had to ask for bread. The food was pretty good when it came out. The ambiance was immaculate. And everyone was pretty curtious for the most part."

  • "Thanks to the hostess we had a nice quiet dinner. Everyone enjoyed their entrees. The Bronzino, fried oysters and the shrimp dish were particularly enjoyable. All in all it was very enjoyable dinner."

  • "I've been to M&S's in DC and Columbus, OH and was much more impressed. To start with we sat in the bar area after we showed up for our reservation at 8:25 and were told we are clearing your table now. Which is no big deal but they sat 3 other ranked and the bar was half empty so we chose there. When another hostess of our decision she apologized that a table had been ready the whole time. The server in the bar area was so-so. To many tables for her to handle efficiently it appeared. My wife got the filet and stuffed shrimp and it amazed me they wod serve the piece of neat they brought out It may have been 4ozvand was way over cooked. Stuffed shrimp was good. I got the bone-in ribeye which was cooked perfectly and was happy with."

  • "All I wrote in my reservation notes was that it was my inlaws 50th Anniversary- the staff at the Philadelphia restaurant had special menus printed for the occasion and could not have been lovelier. It was a great meal to mark a big occasion. We will definitely be back!"

  • "Nice clean restaurant. Manager was very friendly staff was great food very good"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We waited 15 minutes before the waiter realized we were his table, then at least another 5 to 10 minutes for water. Menu doesn't mention a green vegetable is included with entrée so we ordered asparagus to share. At $1 a spear, we could have been satisfied with the green beans that came with the entrée had we known. Waiter apologized for the wait and tried to make up for his error by serving a free dessert but it was too late; Father's Day dinner was a bust. The table next to us must have been practicing for a laugh track recording: non-stop, shrill laughter accompanied the bass emanating from the restaurant's sound system."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I took my husband to dinner for Father's Day. He absolutely enjoyed the food. He said it was wonderful and the service was excellent. We had the steak oscar with hollandaise, asparagus, and mashed potatoes. For dessert we shared the upside down walnut apple pie with ice cream. It was fabulous. We enjoyed it and we will be back."

  • "GREAT restaurant....the seafood is thee BEST I usually get the parmisian crusted flounder I always like it dry not covered in the sauce, this time they covered it in sauce I was not crazy over the soggy fish tasted good but I prefer to add my own sauce on top the bread too die for I really wish they would substitute the blue cheese with feta cheese is it such a big deal"

  • "We ordered Halibut and ahi tuna. Both were dry. It takes real inattention on the part of the cooking staff. Bread was cold and tasteless. Will not go back."

  • "This was our third visit to this location and each experience has been great"

  • "There was really nothing wrong with the restaurant, just wasn't bowled over. My food lacked flavor. The waiter did not seem knowledgeable when we asked questions. Best part of the meal was the lobster cobb salad. The restaurant was also very cold. Not sure it was worth the drive from the suburbs."

  • "A fairly good restaurant for a chain restaurant. More of a place to go for a business lunch or dinner, but the food was good. Not great, but better than average."

  • "The place was very nice and the food was excellent. It took a little while for the entree to be served but, that was acceptable."

  • "Our evening could not have ended better. It was a two-fold celebration; 1 birthday & 1 graduation. Everything was prepared just the way we asked for it. The shrimp kisses were delicious. My son enjoyed his king salmon so much he didn't want to eat it all he wanted to save a piece for later. My daughter had the shrimp mac n cheese and all she kept saying was "OMG this is so delicious." Our server was great and very helpful with recommendations when asked. Simply awesome!"

  • "Got together with an old friend for lunch and having not seen each other for many years, this was the perfect place to sit and catch up without being interrupted. The server was most responsive and answered all of our questions. We weren't rushed. It was a lovely leisurely lunch. She asked if we were members of Landry's (sp?) frequent dining program and my friend and his wife were and as it turns out, by simply providing his name and number she was able to give him extra points and take a certain amount off the bill because it was his birthday month. That was the icing on the delicious desserts we had! "

  • "A little disappointed , maintainence issues from non working mens room to a broken espresso cappuccino machine, Food was nothing memorable.. Few of us had the steak and lobster and the steak portion was a bit overcooked.lobster portion was small, strawberry desert would not order again. Seated in the private booth upstairs, 6 people was a little crowded. We did just fit .. Being upstairs seemed like the wait for food service was long at times"

All entrees were excellent and tasty - the wine selection was also quite good - the only down side was that the price of drinks was quite pricey IMHO. Service was also quite good - attentive but not intrusive. M&S is a good place to go for special occasions - this was one fo them!"
