I love their raw bar - really fresh, large seafood selection. I recommend going there during their happy hour ($1 oysters!!!!)

Great Birthday Restaurant
I took my boyfriend out for his 50th birthday. We had a wonderful experience from the printing on the menus(which we were able to take home) to the Happy Birthday dessert. Our waitress, Ann, was amazing and the food was to die for.

Great Seafood for a "chain"
We had great food and exceptional service at McCormick and Schmick's in Providence. A great wine list and plenty of variety. Landry's restaurants always come through for great seafood.

Wonderful Mother's Day dinner
I am so happy we chose McCormick $ Schmidts to end a day at the ballet and celebrate mother's day early. Our waiter was cordial and knowledgable. We began with tale appetizers of calamari with banana peppers and stuffies. The calamari was excellent, but we found the stuffies with bacon a little salty, more like a casino than a traditional stuffie.
Dinner did not disappoint! We ordered the seared scallops with spinach crab hash brown and potato pesto, and left nothing to lick,
grilled salmon "perfectly done" , stuffed salmon with crab and brie, another winner and the Palm Beach Mahi Mahi (I would order it again in a heartbeat). Dessert, Creme Brule and Chocolate Expresso cake was spectacular and huge.

Wonderfully fresh seafood, relaxing
If you enter through the restored Biltmore lobby, you get the traditional feel immediately. The dark wood of the dining room and bar area gives you the clubby ambiance of an old eatery. We were initially seated close to the bar which was noisy, but were readily accommodated when we asked for a quieter table. Our server respected our desire for a leisurely meal and was attentive, but not overbearing. The food was delicious, including the chowder and the wonderfully fresh oysters. Entrees off the special and regular menus were nicely presented and very fresh!
The only down side was that our leisurely meal lasted more than the 3 hr free valet parking, so we had to pay $15 to park! That made an expensive evening, just a little more so!

This is a great place to grab a nice meal! Food was excellent, as was the service.

The service and the food was great. I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass for the time and it was delicious.

Been here many times love it. had the tuna app, and it was one of the best things I've ever eaten. Came with seared tuna and won tons on one side, and a soy soaked tuna sashimi over avocado on the other side. for our meals, we had the fish and chips, which were good and the blackened mahi mahi with mashed potato. The mahi mahi was firm and had just a hint of spice. was very good and we will be back

Waterfire & Rest. Wk. & Sat. Night!
$5 valet parking for 3 hrs. Only if u don't leave the premises. OK $16 because we took a 1/2 hr. walk to Waterfire. 7 pm reservation=7:30 table. Ok. We're told RW promo is not available Friday or Saturday! Really? Then put it on the website like the other restaurants do with their restrictions. We're able to order from the promo menu only becuz we had seen it at the bar.
Sean our waiter was great and the food was excellent which made up for the shaky start. Nice place but lots of competition in the area so not outstanding in any way.

Enjoyed several glasses of nice crisp refreshing pinot grigio. Food is delicious. Started w/ calamari app which was excellent. Then steak & lobster tail meal w/ the sauteed wild mushrooms side & I cannot tell you how incredible it was. Literally almost a scene from When Harry met Sally while I was enjoying this. I made such delicious noises while eating it that I was embarrassed after my plate was cleared away. In fact we decided we better leave after that & decline dessert . Definitely recommend this dish. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the Atlantic salmon chef special dish as well, great flavor in the meal & specifically the sauce w/ it (a soy based sauce). Definitely an amazing meal. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone...

My friend & I took advantage of Restaurant Week and had a really nice dinner from the fixed price menu!

open table problem
My friend and I dined at McCormick and schmitts Friday evening. I booked the reservation using open table
Upon arrival we were told we had no reservation
We had copy of the confirmation information .fortunately the restaurant could seat us. told us this is a common occurrence w them and open table reservation system
Beware using open table for use may derail your dinner plans!!!

Had a lovely dinner food was excellent. Service very good. Relaxing atmosphere. Noise level low which is a big plus for me
Can't wait to go again

I have eaten at other locations. Food is always exceptional. This experience was different only because the server wad pretty rude. It seemed as if it was a bother for him to be our waiter. Maybe he was just having a bad day. Happens to all of us I guess

Minor glitches but a nice meal
Terrific service, seafood. All very good through the meal, but dessert was disappointing. Chocolate expresso cake was very stale. Had it before and it is dry between layers, but this was well beyond that. Not a huge deal. Their signature dessert is the "chocolate bag". My wife looks forward to this immensely, plans her calories all week, etc. They were "out" of it. Normally, not a big deal, but she was very disappointed and let them know this. The reason this is noteworthy is that, there was a year or so when they removed it from the menu. When we asked, they would make it for her. That tells me that it's not a long prep. But no offer was forthcoming. The place was almost empty early Sunday evening, so they had to have run out on Saturday.

Lunch in Providence
Very nice restaurant with excellent service. Food was good and the seafood was excellent.. We were a party of five and sat down at 3:45 P.M for the luncheon.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great steak and lobster!
The waitstaff were excellent, from the moment we were greeted at the door (with a "happy anniversary" greeting once I gave them my name) to the personal recommendations of our waiter ( and happy anniversary greetings again).
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
great but slow
The food was really good. The service was really good in that the staff was polite, but they were very slow. We kept having to hunt down our server to ask her for something - can we have water, can we see the dessert menu, can we have the check, etc. Other than that it was great!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food and good service
Booked using open table and they sat us right when we walked in. Had a very friendly waiter that made sure we were comfortable and had a good time. My salmon was very flavorful but a little over cooked, the tuna appetizer was wonderful.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always great food and service
Have been to McCormick and Schmidt a number of times. And I always have good service and good food. This time kept to appetizers. salads and wine. Still very good

Decent Dinner; great dessert!
My wife and I started with the clam chowder. Chowder was flavorful, but a bit salty. For entree, I had the Chilean Sea Bass off of the Fall specials menu. While the fish was flaky and flavorful, the apple miso had too much of an acidic taste for me and the cabbage was more of a kale-like leaf. Desserts were the highlight of the day. My son had the strawberry shortcake, my wife the flourless cake, and I had the creme brulee. Each was a perfect finishing touch. The staff was awesome and were the stars of our dining experience! Kudos to them! Likely won't be back aside from another special occasion because the quality of food we ate could be had from many other seafood places in RI.

Super place for a special night out
Come for a night out to celebrate. What a great place to go for super food, great service and fantastic drinks. We loved everything. The drinks were super good - I got the Prosecco sangria and it was amazing. I had to have another. My boyfriend asked for a blueberry lemonade with vodka and loved his specialty drink as well. The shrimp kisses appetizer - great. I had the king crab legs and they were sweet as could be! My boyfriend had the 6 oz sirloin and loved it. We were saddened that the specialty dessert - the chocolate sack was sold out. Our waiter was prompt, effecient and personable. He found time to make a persona connection in a way that was just right. We will return.

Outstanding service and really
Outstanding service and really good food.I went to your restaurant for the Veterans Day Meal along with my lady friend. The food was great, the service was even better, I am sorry I do not remember the young lady's name (bad memory). She was working on November 10, 2013 at 3 PM. . Being a veteran and a former Marine the idea of a Veterans special on the Marine Corps Birthday was more than I could resist and I thank you for this.

McCormick and Schmick's really made my trip to Rhode Island spectacular. The food was delicious; but the service was even more outstanding. Colette guided us to a wonderful table and checked in throughout the evening and was very professional. The bartender Marsha made some amazing wine recommendations as well. She was very friendly and polite. Christina - who wasn't even our server - made several nightlife recommendations and even took the time to write out directions to get home faster than the way we arrived. Most importantly, I'd like to thank Abraham Reay for his candor, courtesy, and most of all being genuine. Kudos to all that made the evening memorable.

Great food, service, eh.
Food turned out to be great. But, the hostess station needs improvement. No one was present when we entered, staff at end of bar felt it was more important to finish their conversation before seating us, and, there was no one there as we left. We were sat at a table with settings for 4 & it took a several minutes before our server arrived to remove the extra 2 settings. Our server, Brie, was friendly but not necessarily sophisticated. She was somewhat challenged opening the bottle wine, having to place the bottle on her leg while balancing on one foot to insert the corkscrew. The oysters were good & the seafood was cooked well, tasted great. Could have been advised they came with sides when we ordered, but the additional sides were good.

Great meal, but slow service
Our party of eight had Thanksgiving dinner there. We could have ordered off the menu, but there was a excellent turkey dinner special. It was a great meal and all were very happy. The only downside was that the staff was a bit slow. A request for extra gravy had to asked three times and the meal took about a half hour to get to us after ordering.
