  • Amazing lobster bisque
    TheWeakestLink
    Dined on 11/18/2014
    High points: Definitely the lobster bisque - from the initial aroma of the sherry butter, to the actual flavor, the pinnacle of our meal. Also excellent were grilled mahi-mahi, very creamy blue cheese in my salad, and the delicious "roscato" wine. Low points: Crab tower appetizer - crab was a bit bland and my wife noted a metallic taste. Mushroom & truffle sauce on her salmon was disappointing because it didn't taste much of either.

    McCormick and Schmick's Seafood is one of our favorite places to eat in Charlotte. We only eat here three or four times a year, but only because it's a 45 minute drive from where we live. They have by far the BEST raw oysters in Charlotte. Their Salute to us veterans is appreciated and we have participated for the last five years. I just hope that my fellow vets remember to tip the wait staff as if they paid the full price for their free entrees. I know we did. Thank You M & S, appreciate the respect you give us!

    We received a notice by e-mail that the restaurant was offering a free dinner to veterans in honor of veterans day. My husband is a Vietnam era 101st Airborne vet. I invited him to go. And I can't say enough good things about it. This is the first and only time he was honored for his service. Vets of his era were not well received when they came home. The menu was terrific, the meal was outstanding, and the service was very thoughtful. We have gone to McCormick and Schmicks before for special occasions, and this was the best evening ever.

  • WORST MCCORMICK & SCMICK'S EXPERIENCE EVER!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 11/9/2014
    My husband and I frequent McCormick and Schmick's Uptown often whenever we have a night out without the children and never had a bad experience. This was our first at South Park. Worst experience ever!!! The only positive was my cedar plank salmon. My potatoes were barely cooked and hard in the center. My husband's dish was worse as his grilled salmon was very dry and his potatoes were not cooked well either. The waitress we had did no favors for the restaurant either. She was not very attentive. It took her two to three times to address our concerns. By the time the food was served, my husband and I gave up saying anything as it created more frustration. Sorry South Park, next time my husband and I will go to the Uptown location.

A portion of our party was running about 20 minutes late and they graciously still seated us without complaint or grumble.

    From the time I entered the foyer I knew I was in for a dining experience like no other. I was greeted like a long lost friend and seated promptly. My server was very attentive and catered to my every whim. The food was exquisite and mouth-watering. Usually when I ask for extra lemons for my tea, I usually do not get them. My server was listening to my request. All in all I recommend your restaurant highly and shall return again and again.

    we ordered pecan crusted trout, and what came out was a slab of week old and tasting fish that could not be eaten. We told the server and although he apologized that we did not like he did not take it off our bill. I could have chosen another dish, but the people I was with were almost thru with their meal by time our server came back. I will not be going back anytime soon.

    Dined on 11/8/2014
    In from Long Island NY for the weekend and my wife suggested this restaurant. Big mistake! Food was just ok and over priced. Server was no where to be found and was hovering over a large party of 15. He knew where his bread was buttered. Food was on the warm side and took over 1 hour to arrive. Manager gave us free dessert and cordials for inconvenience. Had to get up to bar for drink refills as server was no where to be found. If you want to blow $200 + on dinner just go across the street to Ruth Chris steak house. Never a bad time there!!

    Having dined at McCormick & Schmick's at the Washington D.C. and Baltimore locations, I was expecting a much better experience for my wife's 60th birthday celebration, with 17 guest in our party, than the one I had at the South Park location. The service was extremely slow. I ordered Maine Lobster Bisque, it was served almost cold. All the entrees were less than hot upon arrival. Two of my guest ordered steak that was served room temperature and dry, and to be returned. The new steaks didn't come back until everyone else had finished their entrée. I have never before taken the time to write a negative review of anything, but I was very dissatisfied with this experience.

    Service was great - however the restraunt was mostly empty on a Friday Night. Our food was bland at best - neither Kathy or I ate every thing. The best part of the night was the Duckhorn Decoy wine. Would not go back this was the one at the SouthPark Mall in Charlotte. The only good part of the night was that it was very easy to carry on a conversation.

    This restaurant never seems to be crowded at lunch, therefore it is not loud and a great place to go if you want to talk and catch up. The people that greet you are very welcoming. The food is good! The butternut squash orzo is delicious! However, even when not crowded, the service is sometimes not that great. On my last visit we never saw the server unless she was delivering something to us. It was hard to find her for a drink refill. The crème brulee is fantastic. The key lime pie is more like cheesecake.

    Have tried M&S Seafood many years ago in Baltimore and was liking its Fresh Catches of the Day manual. Now it seems this chain is just like other restaurants that are overprice and stuffy. Service we have is outstanding, but won't visit there for fish / shell fish. With the price it charged we got over-cooked Coho salmon and french fries to pair with crab cakes!!

    We were visiting Charlotte with friends and were looking for a seafood restaurant. We thought this fit the bill. I am not a picky eater and don't right negative reviews but we were very disappointed with our meal. They ran out of trout(which was what my husband ordered) and my good came out cold. For the price of my entree I was very disappointed. We waited a long time for our food. The manager did offer us a free dessert. Which we heard him offer another table that was not happy with their food. The only plus side was our server. She was great.

    Wonderful dining experience! The wait staff was excellent; our waitress anticipated what we needed before we even asked! The managers actually came by to introduce themselves, and most importantly the food was excellent. We both ordered lettuce wedge salads and could have stopped there because the complimentary bread basket and yummy salads were so ample and satisfying. I had the tilapia and my husband had the boulibaise. Both were absolutely delicious; cooked and seasoned to perfection. For dessert, we shared upside-down apple pie. It was the best dessert I have ever had!

Entree portions were small and $20 or more apiece and the salad was a few dollars. They have a gluten-free menu. It was a nice lunch. Will return.

    M&S used to be the top high seafood restaurant and the only thing left of that is the attractive decor. The service was disappointing on a really slow night. We reserved a table for two and were seated at a table set for four and they reset the table after we were seated. That's fine at Applebee's but on a slow night at a high end restaurant service should be top notch. The server was abrupt and clumsy. Banging plates on the table, knocking plates into glasses. Not pleasant. Salmon was undercooked after guest requested it well cooked and flaky. Mixed grill entree was swimming in thick butter sauce.
