McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Chicago (Wacker Dr.)
Very Good - convenient LocationHusband and I enjoyed a quiet dinner at the Wabash location. Service was okay; not great. Fish dishes were exceptionally fresh and very tasty. We were not rushed at all which was very nice. Food was cooked to our specifications. A truly pleasant dining experience. We wll return next time we are in the Chicago area.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis location is one of myThis location is one of my favorites because of the great service and consistently good food. I once took the recommendation of the waiter on a fish I had not tried before. When I received it, it was not to my liking. Without blinking an eye, the waiter brought me something else to ensure I was satisfied. I love that about this team of waiters. They always try to ensure the customer is pleased.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat eveningMy wife and I went for our anniversary. From the moment we sat down in the outdoor patio, we felt welcomed. The staff was wonderful and very accomodating. The food was outstanding and more than enough for the price we paid. We will definitely be returning.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMQDReviewThis was an extremely pleasant experience from the moment I walked through the door. I was seated and served immediately since timing was very important. Susan, my waitress was very cordial, and sensitive to my needs which made it an exceptional experience. I especially appreciated their warm welcome and sincere appreciation for dining at McCormick and Schmidt. The food was absolutely delicious and the ambiance was perfect. It was a great start of a special evening.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service!The service was excellent as well the special for the day. However, the steak ordered was was tough and the side of spinach salty.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGood spot for dinner plus theaterGood seafood choices. Remarkable quality for a chain restaurant. Nice ambiance. Convenient location for downtown theaters especially the Goodman theater. Price/quality ratio reasonable by Chicago standards.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation CelebrationThere was eight of us who just completed our doctoral studies having a celebratory dinner and it was very nice. The service and the food were very good. We enjoyed ourselves immensely!!!!!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great McCormick meal!One of our favorite restaurants in the world! Had a wonderful meal (ate WAY too much) and an overall wonderful experience. I still miss the Guava Sexy martini on the menu though.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!!Great food and excellent wine list. We sat on a little booth and ate stuffed shrimps and a perfectly cooked filet; very romantic.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThey gave us a enclosed boothThey gave us a enclosed booth so the conversation was good and easy to hear. The fish, wonderful and service quick. The glass wine list short but priced right. There is a beautiful glass window that is a skyline of Chicago that adds to the beauty and must see.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways ReliableI wish this chain would open restaurants in Canada.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMgood food okay serviceOur server was a little slow. She rarely checked on us and we sat there for 15 minutes before someone came up to us. The food was really good though.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent SeafoodWe were pleased with the food and Natalia's service was outstanding.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's been a while since weIt's been a while since we visited this location. After undergoing a recent remodel, the restaurant is once again fresh and vibrant. The designer has mixed in contemporary finishes with traditional Chicago (ala Frank Lloyd Wright) with the use of stained glass and warm colors. The use of glass vases to create several color pops offers a nice compliment to the overall design. On a nice day, the huge patio would be wonderful to enjoy (the evening we visited, it was too cold). Our server was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the menu. Seafood was fresh. Our only suggestion, is improving outside signage and visibility as it would be easy to not notice the restaurant from the street (either when walking or driving). Go & enjoy!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen we arrived, our reservationWhen we arrived, our reservation wasn't ready, so we had to wait in the bar. That was a bit upsetting since we had specified we had concert tickets, so we were time-limited. But they were very nice to us once a table opened and the food was great. The host did his best to accommodate us.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and incredibleGreat food and incredible staff made for an fantastic night4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great and theThe food was great and the draped tables along the wall were perfect for my romantic evening out. We had tickets for a show at the Chicago Theater which is just around the corner, and this place worked out perfectly, complete with inexpensive valet so we didn't have to move the car, pay for parking twice or take a cab.
Can't wait until my next visit.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMService was ok but serverService was ok but server didn't seem to know what wine was part of the menu specials. We received someone's check and a few items weren't fixed to our specifications. Atmosphere was cozy and quiet, hard to believe we were right off Wacker Drive. Food was tasty.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI was very pleased with thisI was very pleased with this restaurant - they were very willing and able to adjust dishes to be cooked without butter, etc. The service was excellent and the food was very very good.

On previous visits the service was as expected for a restaurant this excellent! Unfortunately this visit the service was fair at best. We attribute this to a new and an inexperienced server. Hopefully our next visit will again be outstanding.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant ExperienceAfter reading the not so stellar reviews, I was pleasantly surprised at the service, the atmosphere and the food. They have a most engaging host - he was pleasant and accommodating. Our server was quick and thoughtful and provided excellent service. The portion sizes were very good.

Staff was very pleasant and attentive from the time we walked in the door. Service was on par for a fine dining restaurant. The decor of the restaurant, including the stained glass Chicago skyline added to the experience. Menu was fairly extensive with a large selection of seafood and a decent wine list. Appetizers were tasty and well presented (oysters and crab cake). Entree service was additionally well timed and well presented. Highly recommend the pretzel encrusted walleye which was a fresh fillet cooked to perfection. Will definitely attend again when in Chicago.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
