Diner Reviews
  • "We had a group of 7 and loved the intimate dining setting in our own small private room. The food was delicious and we were able to have great conversation and catch up with old friends. I would definitely recommend this spot, especially when you want great food, but also really want some privacy and a great environment for conversation."

  • "I haven't been here in a bit but have to say I will definitely be coming back more often. It was a date night for us before the baby arrives & everythign from the updated menu to the service was impecable. When you go ask that Matt H. is your server. He's the best ever....made sure all was perfect. I never had to ask for a refill on my iced tea he was spot on."

  • "We very much enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. The decor was pretty. Our server was outstanding … especially pleasant. The food was good and the prices were lower than I had remembered. I'll bet the restaurant has lowered their prices to reflect the tighter economic times. We will certainly go back."

  • "I loved everything about my dining experience at McCormick & Schmick's in Skokie, IL. The wait staff was friendly and very professional. I loved that they were able to accomodate the 7 year old in our party. The food was fantastic. The waiter overheard us wishing a member of out party happy birthday and at the end of our meal brought him a small dessert cake and ice cream. The service from beginning to end was superb."

  • "Most notable was our server Matthew. VERY knowledgeable about all the foods, different fish, wines, etc. extremely polite and attentive but not overly so. the shrimp kisses appetizer =AMAZING! I had blue marlin, as I haven't ever seen this on a menu before. The seasoning was great! the fish seemed a little tough (or overcooked? -not sure as I haven't ever had it before) for me, but my boyfriend said it was b/c it is a wild game fish and that's the way it is supposed to be. boyfriend had the surf and turf steak medallions and lobster tail. lobster was definitely overcooked & sad looking, steak medallions were so-so. overall the meal was good, a great formal fancy date night."

  • "Wednesday night at 6:00 and not crowded. Our waiter had another table at the same time and I felt like he was totally slammed. I ordered a bottle of $130 wine and after what seemed like awhile he came back to let me know they were out of it and would I please choose another. Picked another, waited longer only to find out they were outta that as well. A lady comes out to try and assist me as if I was just choosing wrong. The 3rd bottle was in stock, came out slightly warmer than I like. Asked to have a glass and chill the rest a few degrees cooler. Came back just as warm... I give up. Food was average (swordfish and flounder). I'd hate to be there if it gets crowded, I felt like 2 tables just was such a tough task."

  • "Went for lunch, had coconut shrimp and chopped salad. Shrimp were ok, nothing special (similar to what you find in the freezer section). Chopped salad has green olives, so I did not eat it. In-laws liked the fried oysters. My husband had the surf and turf. Lobster was cooked properly and steak was fine, he also had fries as his potato, the presentation of his dish was lacking, it looked like a dish that could be from Lone Star (nothing wrong with that), but way over priced for the dish."

Loved Steve who was friendly, caring & an amazing server! He made our night..he wasn't there & too bad for us as this was horrible. The food was NOT cooked properly & the service was worse!!:-( Don't kind if we'll go back here unless call in advance for GM we like & Steve!"

  • "The food at McCormick & Schmick's in Skokie was very good. The menu was quite varied as we were there for lunch. The service was good but TOO good. The young man talked and talked and told us far more than we wanted to know. One out of the four of us didn't like one of the ingredients in her lunch so to try and please her he had that prepared without the ingredient for two people, one of which likes that ingredient. Our waiter was young and enthusiastic but was trying to please too hard and actually became somewhat pesty. I intend to return to that restaurant but will try to avoid having that server wait on me."

  • "Went on a Holiday. Food was so-so. Very expensive. If I hadn't had a gift certificate I would be angry at the price. Even with one, I had to pay $50.00.Cheap on sauces for food. Don't think I'll go back. Kind of ruined my anniversary."

  • "At one time, this was a really wonderful restaurant. Unfortunately, like many other restaurants, the quality of the food has seriously declined and it is very expensive. Like other types of businesses, the business approach is to deliver lesser quality good (in this case food) in order to maintain/ increase profit. I ordered a combination dish -- shrimp (3), stuffed shrimp (2) and salmon filet (very small). It was not particularly tasty, and the portion was outrageously small. The 5 pathetic shrimp were barely medium size. The salmon was dry and had no sauce. If I recall correctly the combination plate was in the neighborhood of $30. My husband thought his food was only fair. We do not plan to return to this restaurant."

  • "My wife and I had previously dined here on a special occasion - - two or three years ago. We were looking for a restaurant on short notice and were reminded of McCormick & Schmick's when we trolled for ideas on Open Table. We had chosen an early time and were seated immediately upon our slightly late arrival (Traffic!) The dining room was not crowded. Our waitress was prompt and helpful. After we ordered, the food was served in an efficient, but not rushed order. Several more table filled after we arrived and the noise level increased, but not to the level that inhibited conversation. The food was very good and the portions were generous. Throughout our stay our waitress stopped by several times to see if we needed anything,"

  • "My friend and I go to McCormick & Schmick's every couple of months and have enjoyed their menu items as well as the ambience of the restaurant. The salads are fresh and flavorful; the entrees are cooked well and presented attractively; and the desserts are delicious. The coffee is mild and rich. The few times we've had the house wine, we have been pleased by it as well. It's a nice place for a special occasion."

Whatever the occasion , from a casual lunch to an evening out you won't be disappointed. The atmosphere is always wonderful as well as the crowd, and don't be surprised to see a celebrity or two from time to time."

  • "Not a good place for Mother's Day brunch. Limited menu and breakfast items especially crab cakes Benedict were not very good. Crab cake was fishy and eggs Benedict yokes were basically hard boiled. Not just mine but also 3 other people In my party. Bloody Mary, specialty drinks and apps off of regular menu were delicious. Stick to what makes you famous, good lunch and dinner seafood. "

  • "Cobia, salmon, mashed potatoes, couscous, all good to excellent, but so many distractions. Asked for bread, got small piece of soft baguette partially cut into 4 thin slices to be torn apart, told that's all we're allowed until we ask again. Waiter bugged us about taking orders probably 3 times in 10 minutes, finally got order for wine, and declined to let us order dinner so he could get the wine order in promptly; then we waited at least 15 minutes b4 the wine arrived. Side of spinach was badly overcooked to mush. Wines were a classic short pour. Waiter kept appearing asking if he could do anything else. Got annoying.Trout, which I didn't order is ltd to one side, or restricted 8 oz. All fish servings were small. .At accessible (cont"

  • "My husband and I dined here for lunch on a Sunday. The food was very good. However the portion size was very small for the price. I ordered the seafood trio which was a combination of two types of shrimp and salmon. I received a total of 5 shrimp and a very small piece of salmon. My husband ordered the whitefish which was also good but small for the price. We left hungry after spending 86 bucks for lunch which included our entrees and two sodas along with one extra side. All the food was delicious just overpriced for what you get."
