McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - San Jose
ThanksIt was very nice Mother's Day dinner. Wine and food was outstanding. We have a good time.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious meal on Mother's Day!My family treated me to Mother's Day at M&S. My teenagers were happy with the gourmet burgers, my husband swooned over his salmon rigatoni, and I loved my parmesan crusted sole. Our side soup and salads were also scrumptious. The service was prompt and polite, our booth was comfortable and had a view out a window, and we didn't feel rushed. We chose the mid-afternoon to avoid the biggest crowds on Mother's Day. My only criticism was that I couldn't swap out my side dish for roasted vegetables, because they weren't allowing substitutions due to the holiday crowds; I could understand this, but we were there at a relatively slow time with lots of empty tables. Overall, a delicious meal and a very pleasant dining experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTexas Stamp of ApprovalTwo friends from Texas went with me. When her steak came to the table it was charred. She took one look and said it better be medium rare inside. It was and she reported it to be delicious. He ordered swordfish, one of his favorites which he only eats in California. He was very happy with it. I had crab-stuffed prawns. They were ok; not the greatest. A little fishy and the stuffing was a little lackluster. One of my favorites there is the beet arugula salad. It didn't disappoint.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMark ZamparelliService was great, but the food was not worth the price. I had to settle for a filet Mignon when they told me they were out of the ribeye. The filet, which I swear was not an actual filet, was cooked properly, but was really tough and not very flavorful. The broccolini(sp) was under cooked and cold. The seafood was tasty though. The restaurant was busy for a Tuesday night, but it was very noisy inside. Our service was outstanding from the reception to the end.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were very happy with allWe were very happy with all the above, have only had lunch at this location, have dined in the Redondo Beach area restaurant as well, dinner there was wonderful as well. Enjoyed the experience very much.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining ExperienceFood was outstanding and service matched. Our waiter, Joseph, sought assistance from kitchen for our specific needs, in this case potentially deadly food allergies. Sommelier was especially helpful in selection of wines to match our tastes. Excellent wine list with a complete cost range. An excellent dining experience that justified the cost.
Also, we had a small private room with a table for eight that eliminated most of the noise. I hope we got it because of the Open Table reservation4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great and theyThe food was great and they had a very nice wine list with recommended pairings.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMfood, service, and pricesI enjoyed dining here. Since we went early on a Saturday night, we had, at least, 30 minutes of quiet. When the crowd came, it got very noisy, but still more tolerable than many other restaurants in the area.
I do not eat seafood, but savored the chicken and linguine entry. I would be delighted to dine here a again.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMostly worth the price.Great service. Amazing muscle appetizers. Limited choice of vegetable to go along with the entree.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, great foodWe went here for my birthday lunch. Of all places in San Jose I picked this one. We went here before Landry's owned it and the service was awful. I wanted to give them another chance since I know that Landry owned restaurants that I have gone to I have always had good service. Our server Joseph was wonderful and very attentive. The hostess on the other hand has something to learn in greeting customers. I was very disappointed with our first impression. When a hostess is the first impression of a restaurant she was awful. If I wasn't so hungry I probably would of left.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always go there for birthdaysWe always go there for birthdays & anniversaries. Great service. Wait staff & receptionist are always friendly & polite.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe chose McCormick & Schmick'sWe chose McCormick & Schmick's because they always put on a great "special occasion" brunch. Once again, they did not disappoint in most areas. Our arrival time was 1:15 pm & we were promptly seated by a friendly & welcoming staff. Joseph, our waiter, was exceptional & outstanding! He treated us as his guests and rather than just another table, especially in the face of a very heavy workload. His service, knowledge, and manner were all “over the top’ and unexpected! This was very positively noted & appreciated by ALL seven of us at the table.
The "Overall" McCormick & Schmick’s rating was, however "very good" but could have been "outstanding" but for a couple items: 1) They were extremely busy, as expected. But, as was very noti3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a really good dinnerWe had a really good dinner here. The only downside was we had a reservation for 5:45, arrived at 5:45 and were kept waiting 10 minutes before being shown to our table even though the restaurant was empty. Otherwise this was a great experience.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMParkingLoved the restaurant, the food, ambiance and service. Only problem is parking. I am handicapped so my husband dropped me off and then went to find a parking place. Took him 20 minutes before he was back at the table. They need to add valet parking.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are never disappointedWe are never disappointed when we go to McCormick & Schmick's. They wait staff is friendly and efficient, the food is delicious, and our experience is positive. We were disappointed to see they had chosen go remove the private tables with velvet curtains, probably in an attempt to look more modern, but our waiter got is into the Godfather Room, which more than made up for it. It was our son's 11rh birthday, which we had indicated in our online reservation, so they had printed up special menus with "Happy Birthday" on them. It's the little touches that make the difference between a good and a great experience.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food with great ambianceMy friend and I ordered the combination seafood plat with salmon, bass, and shrimp to share. It was beautifully plated and each fish was a separate taste sensation. Yummmm.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time diningThis was our first time dining here.
