    After months of cookouts, hamburgers and hot dogs, etc., it was nice to relax with a nice bottle of wine, and a steak and lobster dinner. The food and service at M&S never disappoints and I am so glad they have one in our area.

    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.

    Enjoyed a quiet brunch at the Virginia Beach location on 3 August 2014. The clam chowder was tasty, but did not seem very fresh. The she crap soup however is very fresh and rich tasting. The omelet eggs were slightly overdone. The service was fantastic, timely, and professional.

    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 !

    The food was ok. The service was amazing! It was a beautiful place to dine in. The fish was cooked impeccably but the overall tastes of the meals were a little below average. The dessert was not that great either. Nothing too special but an ok place to go if you can't make up your mind.

    Dined on 7/11/2014
    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.

    We visit M&S in various cities. They are consistently good. The hard sell on the corporate discount card does detract from the experience, though. At least most servers turn it off after a polite "no thanks."

    We love this restaurant for great food, great decor, great athmosphere, great staff. It is our favorite spot in Town Center among all the good restaurants in this area. It has a mainly seafood menu, but the steaks are good here too. The crabcakes are the best you can find between here and Baltimore. There are great seating options too...bar area has that sports bar feel but with class. Open area is great for groups. Booths are great for romantic ambience, especally with curtains drawn. Seating by the window gives a great view outdoors. Outside dining is pleasant for enjoying fresg air.

    Without a doubt the most inattentive hostess that I have ever had. She suggested that we go to the bar while our table was made ready. She had perfected avoiding eye contact while we waited at the bar while she was sipping on a slurpy. When we walked out she was outside flirting with the valet parking attendants. We had a nice dinner at Ruth Chris across the street.
