McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Virginia Beach
Great foodI made reservations for 430 PM for 4 people for Mother's Day since my mom wanted to try this restuarant. Our party arrived around 4 PM (since my family is ALWAYS early). The hostess quickly checked us in and told us it would be a few moments before we were seated. 30 minutes later we were finally seated after my MOM asked how much longer it would be. Now normally this wouldnt have been an issue; however, there were MANY open tables and people who didnt have reservations were seated immediately. Once seated, our service was outstanding and so was the food.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAWESOME DINING EXPERIENCE!Really enjoyed the atmosphere there! The food was good and the wait staff fabulous.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery PleasedI would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a special seafood dining experience. The quality of the food was outstanding as well as the quality of the entire staff. A true upscale dining experience without spending an entire pay check.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery niceThis place was very kid friendly, however still quiet. I had the almond tilapia with Jamaican rum sauce, which was excellent. I would like to see a larger variety of sides available. Overall this place is really nice and has a nice selection of entrees on the menu.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat findfood was great and the portions are well worth the $$. I was however disappointed that they did not have the entree that i wanted, the menu online must be old. Other than that, it was very good, we ate outside and it was very relaxing..5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHostess Manager, poor judgment?The Hostess Manager walked us all the way through the restaurant to a very dark booth. I had requested a "window booth", and all the window booths were mostly empty. I should state that my husband does not walk well and uses a cane, and was most upset that she walked us all the way through the restaurant. After leaving us standing at the very dark booth she went back to the hostess station and then came back and seated us in a very nice window booth.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMJessica's Graduation LunchAfter an exciting day at my daughter's graduation from ODU, to be able to come to McCormick and Schmick's for a wonderful sit down meal. Service was great! They seated us immediately and our waitress, Veronica, was fantastic. The Blue Crab Dip and the Shrimp Kisses were a delicious start. The Almond Crusted Rainbow Trout was wonderful. We also had Stuffed Shrimp that was cooked to perfection, the Cedar Roasted Atlantic Salmon with a Northwest Berry Sauce, Fish Tacos, the Baked Cod, and Shrimp Mac and Cheese. The waiter also mentioned a new drink the Pomegranate Fizz which was good. Overall our experience at McCormick and Schmick's was wonderful. Thanks for making it a great way to end our day!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI dined at Mccormick and SchmicksI dined at Mccormick and Schmicks to celebrate my daughter's graduation (Doctorate!!!). We had my grandson with us, along with friends. The waitress was pleasant, and more than accomodating to a 20 month old. Before we could even ask or order she bought out crackers for snacks for the little one, and she went back for "more" when he requested this "big-hit" snack. The food was great! The atmosphere was great! The service was great!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant Anniversary CelebrationMade early reservations for our wedding anniversary to avoid Saturday evening rush. We were promptly seated, given special, keepsake menues and seated at a nice table by a window. There was a slight delay in receiving our server's attention, but he made up for it in by being engaging and informative. The food was superior and the service was great. The only detractor on the occasion was that we were seated directly adjacent to a large and loud dinner party and very close to the front door.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and selectionGreat Service, good menu choices, tables that are a comfortable distance from other tables and thankfully not a loud atmosphere.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWith the exception of theWith the exception of the restaurant running out of swordfish(which I really was looking forward too) the salmon was a good fall back. We had a good evening with family4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe came to dine before seeingWe came to dine before seeing the show at the Sandler Center and it was a fun, delicious and delightful beginning to a wonderful night. Clay was our waiter and he was very helpful in our wine and dinner selections as well as being very personable. He was one of the best waiters I have had in many years, as he was fun yet still being very professional. I would call him a "perfect waiter". Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExtremely attentive to everyExtremely attentive to every detail in fine dining!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good, but not great.Food was good, but not great.

The location is perfect for those going to the Sandler Center to enjoy a play and for the residents in the area.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThey're Back, For NowLocated in Town Center of Virginia Beach has been an actor of the neighborhood since the opening of Town Center. Unfortunately, like a lot of staples in the community, "familiarity breeds contempt". McCormack and Schmick became lazy and disconnect. I'm happy to say that they're back to their first love. Great service and food.
Obviously, one goes there for the seafood. On this day, I ordered the lobster bisque soup. This course has large chunks of Maine lobster with a broth poured at the table. It's a great starter. My main course was just the Lobster Cobb salad. It's a work of art. There are multiple levels stacked on the plate in a rainbow of colors and flavors.
The menu has plenty of options in fresh seafood and there are plenty of win3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday PartyOur family (14 of us) celebrated a birthday here.
