Diner Reviews
  • "Great food, helpful and friendly wait staff, will absolutely return."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "I was more impressed with the food on the first visit. Service was better this time. Something was missing from the experience this time. I will try them again and see if they or I was having an off night."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Significant seafood options, and the lobster cobb salad was especially tantalizing. The jalapenos added a spicy touch to the calamari that we also enjoyed. Our service was commendable and overall experience was quite nice for a 32nd anniversary celebration."

  • "I have been here many times and each time is better than the last. My most recent visit was with ky boyfriend. I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and it was absolutely lovely. Out food was really well done. Although I did ask for my burger to be a bit pink in the middle, it ended up being cooked a bit more than what I asked for. Other then that everything was super delicious and our waiter was probably the nicest and most helpful waiter we could have asked for!"

  • "Food Was delicious- Crab cake to die for, and the Filet Oscar style was amazing! Highly recommend this restaurant!"

  • "Not crazy about cold bread to start my meal. Food is good. Chef is acommadating but we got spinach for the table well after we started our meal."

  • "We came for our 32nd wedding anniversary. We've eaten here before for nights at the theatre or for nice family dinners and have always enjoyed our meals. Their fish is always fresh and we love their seafood spreads. I don't believe we've ever had a bad meal. Our daughter made us the reservation for our anniversary, letting them know it was our anniversary and we ended up receiving a menu with couples dessert that they have is for free. So accommodating!"

  • "Excellent location just a couple blocks from the 3rd St./Convention Center station. The shrimp kisses deserve all the praise and rave reviews they've gotten. Seared scallops and sea bass were outstanding. I'm pretty critical of scallops and these are among the best I've had ever. Upside down apple pie w/IC was fabulous and the carrot cake was tasty but a bit on the dry side. Couldn't have had better service. Ambience was great for a special little evening out but there were lots of groups enjoying themselves as well. Very comfortable with just the right amount of light and just a low mumble of voices, etc."

  • "The bar service was outstanding as was the bartender - personable, attentive and engaging. Table service left much to be desired. The restaurant was far from crowded and still we have to wait 45 minutes to have our initial order taken and then when additional drinks were needed throughout the meal, we waited more than 30 minutes for beers. Folks in our party who ordered surf and turf or seafood were well pleased however I ordered a chicken dish that was VERY disappointing. Plate presentation was not at all what one would expect from a restaurant of this calibre."

  • "I always forget how reasonable the lunch is here. We sat outside and enjoyed the meal very much. I had the crab cake sandwich and it was excellent. The fish tacos looked really good too."

  • "When I made my reservation, they asked if we were celebrating anything special and I gave them the information. The menu's we received had our names and best wishes printed on them! What a nice surprise! The food was excellent, the drinks great and service above par. I highly recommend the lobster mashed potatoes and the upside down apple pie...it's better than my own!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Our waitress was phenomenal and we were seated in a very private dining nook where we could converse quietly with our friends. We loved that part. The food however, left a bit to be desired. I had the beef medallions and they were too salty for me. Plus, I was not asked how I would like to have them prepared and they came out medium. The upside down apple pie was only okay. It was somewhat dry. The crème brulee was fantastic! Overall, I do not foresee going back to this restaurant given the price verses what I received."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "First time visit at a friend's recommendation. I had an overall good experience but it wasn't anything spectacular. It was crowded but the noise level was low and the low lighting gave it a romantic atmosphere which my boyfriend and I liked. The food was just okay. My boyfriend wasn't able to eat the soup he ordered for his appetizer b/c we didn't know there was ham/bacon? in it and we don't eat pork. His salmon was a little small he said and he wasn't fond of the pre-selected sides that came with it. Out waiter seemed a little overloaded and wasn't overly present. I was able to use a gift certificate I got with my credit card Visa points and that was nice to have the $25 off. So overall just okay, nothing great."

  • " We were looking for a new place to go during Queensfeast week. We had never been there so we decided to give it a try. So glad we did! the food was great, service was great...what else could you ask for? My wife said the Salmon was the best she ever had. Will definitely try again!"

  • "My wife & I felt like they created the Charlotte Reatuarnat week menu as an obligation to the event instead of a celebration it is attened to be. I heard so much about Mcormick & Schmidt I eas excited about our evening. But instead of featuring some of it's top dishes I felt like they were trying to minimize their losses with low price & minimal selections. I don't think they realize the meaning of the event plus their opportunity to gain new patron recommendation's. Instead of putting their best foot forward they tried to disguise the bad foot with fancy names. Plus minimal food selection offered, 4 entrees, soup & salad apps. Really? We won't be returning."

  • "Great Service from the time I entered until the time I exited! Awesome"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Very small portions for the price!! My son ended up having to buy 2 dinners because the portions for the Beef Medallion Bordalaise were Kid sized. Not sure if we will be coming back. If I want to spend that amount of money for food, I should get a good meal."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I was very disappointed in the apple pie dessert. This is the third Restaurant week I've been there, and this was a totally different apple pie dessert. Awful!!!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The Food more than makes up for the average service. Best food in Charlotte hands down."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "the food was very run of the mill seemed like a tv dinner"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "A very nice place, with good food and ambience. It is part of a chain, so the food is not unique, but it is very good and makes for a very nice dining experience. Also, since everyone expects seafood to be expensive, they tend to go elsewhere, so the crowds are not large, but the prices are about par for an urban restaurant."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Our dinner was wonderful, we were however packed into a small corner, unable to get out easily. Our waitress anticipated our needs. Only thing additional thing I would comment on; for such a nice restaurant, the bathroom was very messy and out dated."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We had dinner at McCormick & Schmick's prior to attending the theater. The fish was fresh and well prepared. Service was efficient and very good. I would recommend this restaurant."

    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "I've eaten here several times and Thursday evening was the worst experience I've had. The bar could not not handle the crowd. My wife and I ordered a glass of wine each when the waiter first appeared. It took 30 minutes for the wine to arrive. When I ordered a second glass to go with my meal, I waited another 30 minutes and then simply cancelled the order since I had finished my meal without the wine. My water glass was never refilled. The food was quite good (Salmon). I spoke with the manager (a very nice and concerned gentleman) and he comp'd the wine. However, money was not the issue - - prompt service is. I won't be back anytime soon."

  • "We have eaten at McCormick & Schmick's at the South Park location several times. This was our first time at the Uptown location. Very handy complimentary valet parking. The service was outstanding. The food was up to their usual outstanding consistency. It is upscale seafood while not being over the top. It was a warm evening, so we chose to eat inside, but the outdoor dining is a great option also."

  • "Food is good and great place for a date night. The food is on the high side but for a special occasion it was perfect!!!"

  • "Love this place. Celebrated my 4th wedding anniversary there. Wonderful experience with waitress. Even substituted the anniversary desert for something different because of my lactose intolerance. Will definitely go back here."

  • "Greeter, Bartender, Waitress/Server all were great. The atmosphere and the hospitality were exceptionally well. A wonderful experience. Can't speak enough on hospitality and friendliness. And the Shrimp Kisses....are a must to try."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Food was ok, but staff is very junior for the price you pay - no real welcome at the entrance - waiter didn't know anything about wine, was too long bringing the drinks out, forgot to bring any of the sides for our party, and even when reminded brought only one of them; - didn't talk to the menu, specials, etc. - service was if I was at Red Lobster or smth - force sold another bottle of san-pelegrino even though we had a huge bottle out on the table already - huge wait time to pick-up the valet (we waited 25 min)"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We were excited about the recommendation and made reservations for 8:00 on Friday. We shouldn't have bothered. The place was almost empty. Our oysters we barely the size of a nickle and were brought out with only 1 slice of lemon for a dozen. They brought only cocktail sauce (no horseradish as we are used to.) The lobster bisque was oily and heavy and we did not even eat it. It tasted like it had been reducing for days. The entree's were barely adequate and not very tasty. I had crab cakes and they were only served with tarter sauce. I would think a chef could come up with some kind of sauce to top them with. They were served with limp fries and we asked for fresh ones. The fish entree' was small and bland. We will not go back."

  • "I have always loved coming to McCormicks, the food is always great and the servers are always on top of things. I would recommend McCormicks to any seafood lover. A co-worker of mine does not eat seafood and he also enjoyed his burger."

  • "I took my husband to McCormick & Schmick's for Fathers Day. The servers were very prompt and we were seated immediately. The appetizers and dessert were great but the entrees were mediocre and undercooked (oysters) and the server picked up my food while I was still eating placing a cup on my food rendering it inedible. In addition, the restrooms seemed to be more suited for a low-cost chain restaraunt. The stalls reminded me of a bus station restroom. Overall, I was not impressed and did not think that the restaurant or food was worth the $115.00 (with tip) that I paid for dinner."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "My overall experience as wonderful. All of our food was delicious. The drinks were very unique but surprisingly tasty. I will definitely be back in the near future."
