Always a good seafood selection
Always a good seafood selection and well prepared. While wait service wasn't terrible, it wasn't the best this time. Our waiter indicated that he was servicing a large group as well as our table as a reason for slow service and forgetting bread.

We were in Boston and I had to have Lobster. We go to McCormick and Schmicks when we travel because we know that we will find a consistently quality meal.

Perfect Reunion Lunch
Our party included several friends, family in their mid-80s with various health and mobility problems. We had exceptional service with personal attention to both food allergies and seating challenges with walkers-- as well as superb food including trout, fish and chips. Our booth was private and allowed our group to visit comfortably for two hours. Accolades to M and S management and staff.

I loved the feel and ambience of this place- for a fairly big restaurant they managed to create an intimate type of vibe.
The waiters and waitresses were helpful, knowledgeable and professional. I would certainly return!
Last but not least, the food was great!

5pm dining experience for 8 people
When we arrived at 5pm, there was no hostess. I asked the bartender and he called over a waitress. They set up a table for 8, only to find out that a table had already been set for us in another section of the restaurant which actually was much nicer. This made me a little nervous. Our waiter, Chris (from Albany) was absolutely wonderful. He was polite, attentive, knowledgable about the menu and unobtrusive! The food was great. My guests all thought the evening was wonderful and enjoyed themselves. So, although we had a little "bump" getting seated, I cannot say enough as to the fine dining experience we had. My only little critique was we had to ask to have the music lowered.but, our waiter kindly accommodated us in this request.

M&S is consistently a very good restaurant. Their seafood menu is diverse as well as the chef's specials, which are always well prepared and scrumptious.
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Try the chocolate bag
If you go to M&S, you MUST try the chocolate bag filled with white chocolate mousse and fresh berries for dessert. It simply was delicious and quite creative.
Our meal there was wonderful too, from appetizer(bacon wrapped shrimp) to entree, to the delicious dessert.
Excellent service was had, as well.

The Best McCormick & Schmick's
Not much to say but this stop in Boston while on a month long business trip was fantastic. Appetizer, dinner and dessert were great, service was awesome. We had been to several restaurants in the area from Italian to Indian and this was by far one of the best meals we had the whole month. Bravo!

I was with a group of friends that I had not seen in the longest time! we had a blast!
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
great private booths
We asked for a quiet table for a business dinner and they have 2 rows of enclosed private booths that each seat 6. It was effectively a private dining room. Very quiet - only problem is since the staff can't see you and vice versa, very difficult to get good service unless the servers are extremely attentive at checking back...
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome as always
I dine here often and it's great every time. The food, the service, and the atmosphere are wonderful. Chris is an awesome, professional, personable, and thoughtful server who makes one's dining experience special. You must try the heirloom carpaccio from the summer menu. It's awesome!

Given it's location in the Theater district the dress code is dress casual up to cocktail depending on time. This is an excellent spot for pre or post theater dinner.

Great for large group
I booked a reservation for 16 people at 6:30 on a Saturday night. They were able to accomodate us well and gave us a nice big rectangular table. There was plenty of space and we did not feel crowded. I was worried that we might bother some other diners around us, but the booths near us had little curtains that could be closed, which I thought was pretty neat. The food and service was good and I was very pleased overall.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food..Decor needs updating
After a not so good first impression of very dark and torn booths
I was pleasantly surprised by very good food and extremly attentive service.
The Sizzling Salmon was delicious as was the summer Gaspachio
soup special. The manager talked us into dessert,which he assured us was enough to share.So we ordered the Apple Pie, which was "to die for".
All in all the food was great snd we didn't even have to leave thr hotel we were staying in@

I have never dined here before.
I have never dined here before. I was looking for a special restaurant to celebrate my son's birthday and it had to be near the theatre district as we went to see Wicked after. The restaurant didn't disappoint. They even had my son's name printed on the menu with the chef signing it. All of the appetizers were good, especially the oysters my son ordered. Our meals were very good and well presented. The best were the desserts. My son had the chocolate box with white chocolate mousse which was to die for and my other son and I split the peanut butter chocolate pie(yum!). Overall the restaurant was really good with that old time ambience! We would definitely go back again!

Dinner before a show
Food and service were very good. Lobster bisque was outstanding. Waitress was very knowledgeable about menu and was willing to offer suggestions. My wife was wearing a black dress and their napkins are white so the Hostess offered a black napkin so she wouldn't get any lint on her dress...nice touch. The booths are very tight but this seems to be the same in the other neighborhood restaurants as well. Overall very nice experience and the service was quick enough to keep things moving but was not rushed at all. We had 8:00 tickets to a show at the Boston Opera House and had a 6:15 reservation...plenty of time...
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dining in boston!
We would go back here very often if we lived in Boston. but now, we will definately mark this as a place to visit when in town. The food, service and ambiance was perfect...really enjoyed outselves!

Great selection of meats and seafood. Great wine selection. Great customer service. No complaints here. See you soon!

My wife and dear friend took me out for my birthday and I chose this. Great food, great service. The manager came by to check on us. The waitress was awesome, and the food……. loved the lobster mashed potatoes. Had never seen this one before, and it was awesome.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Came here during restaurant week. Between 2 of us, one ordered from the restaurant week menu, the other from the regular menu. Both were about the same price for the same amount of food. Everything was spectacular.

We went with colleagues after work... it was a great place to just relax and have dinner. They sat us in a quieter part of the restaurant, which we all very much appreciated.

We ate at McCormack prior to going to the Boston Opera House. We were seated promptly and our waitress was very attentive and nice. The food was good, overall a nice dining experience!

Fish is top notch
We came on a date night away from the kids for a birthday celebration. The staff was very polite and accomodating above and beyond, and we had a nice private table. The fish was among the best we've ever had. Melt in your mouth perfect. I ordered the filet mignon, which I've had prepared very well here in the past, but was not so great this time. Just wasn't seasoned and to the standard I was expecting. SHoulda gone with the fish (which was cheaper too). Still, overall a very good experience.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Fish Experience
Great variety of fish dishes in rich setting. Especially like private booths with curtain closure at entrance. Love the sole or flounder with parmesan crust ( first time I have seen this kind of treatment ) Waitress could not have been more helpful. The big problem is that there are not more of these restaurants. Even could keep concept and provide more of a smaller establishment. Salads could be a bit bigger. Like the Cobb salad but you came close with one of your salads. I am a bread person and enjoy very crusty rolls and while the sour dough bread was good it did not match my favorite rolls which can be found in very few restaurants now.

McCormick & Schmidt's is the perfect place for an early dinner that after a matinee. Great oysters, apps, soups, salads and entrees. Always interesting specials and a great wine list.

Had an excellent first date here. Service was excellent; food was fantastic; very charming place with nice ambience.

Last minute meal
Decided on a meal before ballet and everything was full. Knew about M&S but had never eaten there. Will eat there again.

A wonderful family gathering.
I make it into Boston only about once a year, but I always get together with my nephew and his fiancé for a meal and to catch up. It was easy to make reservations on my cell phone using open table. The next day I got a call from the restaurant confirming the reservation. We were very well cared for. Seated in a cozy, nicely decorated alcove, we were able to have a wonderfully pleasant conversation and catch up. The wait staff took extra pains with our orders, and the chef himself actually made alterations in the menu at my request. He then came out personally later in the evening to see how it all turned out. In all, a wonderful attention to detail and an excellent dining experience was the order of the day. Thank you!

Very Professional & Attentive
The staff was very professional and attentive. A manager stopped by our table twice to check in and chat a bit. Very nice touch. The food and the service were top notch. Will definitely visit again

Very good, but...
I was one of many veterans that had the opportunity of receiving a free meal at McCormick & Schmick's. Having said that I feel a little uncomfortable in not giving a higher rating then noted. Please let me explain. I ordered the grilled salmon. It was served to me with mashed potatoes and squash. The salmon was outstanding being hot off the grill and very delicious. However, the mashed potatoes, although they were warm and delicious, were a little on the dry side. The squash was quite tasty, but was cold. I also order a desert which I knew I would have to pay for. I was disappointed when eating the Boston Creme Pie and found that, even though it too was good, it was a little dry. Maybe because the meal was free, I shouldn't be complaining.

dinner before the theater
The food was good, but there were a lot more fish items on the menu than steak even though they advertise themselves as fish and steak. My fish was surprisingly flavorless, but my husband's fish was excellent. We had calamari first and a salad that were both delicious. We were in a hurry and our waiter made sure that our meal moved along. We went back after the theater for dessert which was outstanding.
