    Warm reception, was seated immediately at out requested table, the server was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about all the menu choices and the specials. She was extremely attentive to our needs, but not overly so. The atmosphere is fantastic, and valet parking right at the front door. Our choices of the seafood specials were very good, and I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone for a great evening.

    For the price they list the food should always be on point. Order the beef w/stuff crab in shrimp, was not aware it came w/mixed veggie and mash potato. I order the medallion medium well (pink no blood) my friend order pasta w/salad. The waiter was very pleasant but did describe what came w/of the dishes. The salad came w/blue cheese (that was awful, sent it back)medallion was cook WELL done, very dry & food was warm. She crab soup was warm...Requested to take it home too cold to enjoy. When medallion return it was prepared just right (tender, pink inside as requested-HOT) sent the plate back requested they not heat the plate but HEAT the food. The quality of food was unsatisfactory! Too many issue to get free dessert on next visit!

    This was our second visit to this restaurant. We decided at the last minute that we wanted to eat out instead of cooking. I made reservations through Open Table and was able to pick a time one hour (7:00 pm) after we made our decision. Since the restaurant is a 30-minute drive from our home, it gave us just enough time to get dressed and go! We were seated as soon as we arrived, and our waitress arrived quickly. The restaurant was sparsely populated. We each chose a salmon dish, and they were both very tasty. The sourdough bread tasty, too. Our check was brought as soon as we finished our dinner and we left within one hour of arriving. The only thing that would have improved the experience was if we had been offered more water and bread.

    Good seafood for a chain. Wait staff should know ingredients better as I specifically asked for no cilantro (or no relish if it contained such) - got the relish and yes w/cilantro - bad reaction for me personally, so that part was inedible. Other than that and the loosened salt cover, which should never happen in a place w/such class, all was good. The staff did correctly and quickly replace the accidentally salt laden food, however. Great for special occasions and variety is wonderful. Overall, a good experience. And it was made extra special for my son's 22nd birthday with a nice surprise dessert and candle for him.

    McCormick & Schmick's Seafood resturant in Town Center Virginia Beach is one of those relatively rare resturants where regardless of the day of the week, time of day, or part of the year you go there they will always have great food and service. They always are on point.

    My husband and I don't get out often for date night with two kids; however, Sunday evening was our night. Our waiter Nick was absolutely amazing and he seated us in this quaint, cozy booth and closed the drapes for more privacy. Instant intimacy & instant thumbs up! We ordered what he suggested and the food/service was impeccable. We will be frequent flyers from now on.

    Unfortunately, we did not have a good experience. The waiter was nice but service was very slow. Also, the waiter simply read the menu to us (for way too long). They did not give us the drinks we ordered (two separate occasions), they did not timely refill them, and they charged me for a salad I did not receive. They do have a really good shrimp appetizer but it is $13.99 and that is simply too much for four pieces of shrimp.

    Although the reservation process and the service was good, I felt the food didn't live up to the price. The portions were small and there was nothing outstanding about the taste or quality. I could have gotten a similar meal at a Red Lobster for a more reasonable price.

    This was my first visit to McCormick & Schmick's in almost a year. This was a huge improvement, putting McCormick & Schmick's back on the top of my preferred places for fine dining. The presentation of each entre was superior. The food was excellent with a balance of seasonings bringing out the flavor of each dish.

    We would give our dining experience overall a 2. We waited in the lobby for a while (along with 5 other people waiting to be seated.) We decided to sit outdoors and enjoy the evening weather while we ate...big mistake! The hostess said she would bring us a menu momentarily, but she never came back. We sat for 20-25 minutes before we had a drink or a menu. It was not a very busy weeknight. Luckily the waitress came by & asked if we had been helped. She was fabulous and if it wasn't for her we would probably rate our experience lower. Hopefully this was just a fluke and not a regular occurrence.

    My wife loved her steak and lobster.....I had their special which was filet covered with crab meat and asparagas....not so good. My steak was tiny and well done when I had asked for medium rare. Normally I would have sent it back but it was my wife's birthday and I could see she was thrilled with her meal so I didn't want to stir things up since this was her evening....so I just ate the steak and let it go. Noise level was high for us because of a screaming infant at the next table..........who brings an infant to a fine dining establishment at 9pm ???? The nerve of some parents who think their kids are welcome wherever they go is unreal to me ! Get a babysitter....that infant should have been in bed at 9pm....no wonder it was screaming !

    My friend and I have dined at five restaurants in Town Center so far and McCormick's has been the absolute best hands down. Everything was perfect. The Shrimp Kisses were really good. We were fighting over who would eat the last one. The She Crab soup was also delicious. We both chose the Parmesan Crusted Chicken. I typically would not choose a chicken dish at a restaurant that specializes in seafood. However I was amazed at how well it was prepared and it had so much flavor. Last but not least we had the Upside Down Candied Walnut Apple Pie for dessert. This was the best apple pie I have ever had. The service was great as well as the ambience. I would highly recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.

    We all love everything about McCormick & Schmick's. The location in VA Beach is wonderful. Right in the middle of VB Town Center with very nice Hotels all around. The food is absolutely delicious. Have never gotten a meal that wasn't fabulous. Their wedge salad is the very best. Love their fried shrimp and their fish specials. The service is great also. Very knowledgable, courteous and helpful. I highly reccommend this Resturant to locals as well as tourists. http://trksmail4.zulily.com:80/track?t=c&eas=4&mid=1099907&msgid=70532&did=109932&sn=67116427&eid=rayblackman@cox.net&uid=2088130255&tgid=&fl=&extra=MultivariateId=&&&208000071915&&&http://www.zulily.com/e/monochrome-mode-black-and-white-plus-71915.html?email=rayblackman@cox.net

    This is a great spot for a business lunch or classy dinner date. Ambience is turn of the (last) century, with glossy wood paneling, curtained booths, and Prairie-style light fixtures shedding a warm glow (the lighting, by the way, is perfect, subdued without being dim). A lack of noisy background music means you can have a quiet conversation, and the curtained booths are perfect for those wishing privacy. Service is professional and attentive, and the food is very good. Not 5-star good (my sauteed mushrooms and spinach would have been just bland if they hadn't been almost too salty), but steaks oscar and bordelaise were both tender and tasty. Seafood was also primo: lobster mashed potatoes are a win! Portions are a bit small for the price.
