    The room was about 30% full, so not packed, but we sat for about 10 minutes before the hostess came back and asked if we wanted anything to drink. We ordered a wine and a beer. 5 minutes later a waiter stopped by saying he would be right back. Another 5 minutes and a different waitress comes to serve us. She said our drink order was in. 10 minutes later we get our drinks. My wife ordered an angus filet and crab special. I asked for help between 3 items and got a suggestion. When the food shows I get the wrong order. My wifes steak is tough and the crab is basically nonexistent. After they take mine back, the right order is disappointing. Again, lack of crab. Never was approached by a manager. I hope it was just a bad night on their end.

    We did not realize there was also a restaurant side, so we ate in the bar side, which was not exactly the ambiance we were looking for. However, the food surpassed all expectations. We had the tuna appetizers, the stuffed salmon and the shrimp trilogy. Everything we ate was incredible. We will certainly return.

    We had a party of 14 attending a celebration for a college graduation. The original reservation was for 12 but they were able to accommodate 2 more guests. The service by Lauren was great and the food was amazing. Several of us had the Lobster Bisque and enjoyed it!. The prices were reasonable for both the food and drink. We plan on dining here again and will be recommending this restaurant to our friends.

    We made a reservation but showed up slightly early to grab a drink in the bar while we waited for our 4th member to arrive. The waitress was friendly, younger and possibly inexperienced but brought our first drinks promptly. She had another table nearby of about 9-10 people. When our 4th arrived, she was too busy processing separate checks for each individual person at her other table, so our friend went directly to the bar to order a drink and was all but told that he could not order a drink through the bar. The bartender finally allowed him to, and then we waited for almost a half an hour before the waitress came to see us again. With the bartender standing around and 3 other employees not helping at all, I was a little more than upset.

    As always, the food was excellent and the service was outstanding. However, the hostess seemed to take an immediate dislike to us, seating us in a back room that was at least 10 degrees warmer than the rest of restaurant. When I politely asked her if we might find a table in a more temperate part of the restaurant, she seated us directly in front of the kitchen. While certainly cooler, we couldn't figure out why we were placed at this noisy 4-top when there were five others open. We figured they might have been reserved, but no-- they remained unused the entire evening. Not a nice way to be treated, and not what we expect from McCormick's after dining there for the past eight years.

    We went here on a casual 2nd date and had a nice time. We came in around 7 and had a couple of drinks while talking and then ordered food. The drinks were pretty normal, as expected, and the food was amazing. The waitress wasn't stopping by every 2 seconds which was nice but she was definitely there when she needed to be. Perfect timing. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend and will be back.

    While the ambience has changed a bit (we liked the tall booths), the service is still the best in town with Jason manning our table! Food overall is just a tad less great than before Landry's owned it so I would suggest they work on that and serve the food hotter! The Kissing Schrimp is to die for! Seafood platter was a bit overcooked but flounder and rockfish were perfect. We were on the early side and the restaurant was definitely not full so I would suggest a bit of work in the kitchen is in order to maintain the high standards of the original McCormick's!

    Great food. They offered an excellent Restaraunt week menu with 5 choices of Entrees. I tasted the Bison and had smoked pork. Both excellent tasting, visually well presented, and hot. Mixed green salad was fresh and tasty, No room for the cake which I took home. Service was attentive, with adequate time to enjoy all four courses. Some have reservations as they are owned by a big company, found no reason to agree. Restaraunt has unique feel. Will go there again. When you go Park across the street in underground garage for $5, as opposed to paying $20 for unattended lots on the corner.

    wow never thought i would give any restaurant a bad review first time ever. Went in had reservation for 7:30 pm was told the wait time was 30 min or more to dine in the main dinning area we choose to dine in the bar area instead of waiting . Big mistake waited 20 min to get a refill on our waters i finally went to the bar and got the refill myself. Felt ignored by your wait staff. The 5280 menu was not worth the $30.00 each person had to pay. Best part of the meal was the mashed potato's and desert. The bread was even cold when brought to us.

    Another wonderful evening at Mc Cormick's. Oysters on the half shell were a very flavorful starter. The accompanying cocktails were mixed exactly as ordered. The menu for restaurant week had great options and the pork was tender and very good. No meal is complete without dessert and the chocolate cake was the perfect ending to the meal. For restaurant week, birthday, anniversary, or any occasion McCormick's should be on the short list of restaurant choices!

    We were quickly sat at a window table and forgotten. I'd estimate it took at least 10 minutes if not 20 to first get noticed. Once noticed a drink order was taken, but water was still not filled, we had to ask again for it throughout the meal to have more water. We had to ask for some bread on the table. Our waitress was horrible, and appeared to have never been trained. Food was good, but this was our last time going to McCormick's as this is not the first time service was less than adequate.

    We were accommodated though late for our res. We were called the night before to confirm. I was disappointed with the calamarie, too big rings and chewy, and my lobster cobb I would have rather had with different lettuce as it was watery. We decided to eat off the menu, and so paid too much for our night out. We love McCormicks though, lively and music wonderful. There special menu was also great and should have stuck to that.

    2 couples went as part of Denver restaurant week. The food was good but the service was horrible. I understand it was busy but when plates come out hot and the food is just warm it tells me they were sitting under a heat lamp. We ordered a appetizer of steamed clams and Mussels. After they were finished them we sat at our table for 20 minutes with empty water glasses and empty shells. Someone at out table had to start piling the dirty dishes as a hint. Finally some one came and cleared them and brought out our salads. We went to other restaurants over the past years during restaurant week that were actually fine dining and enjoyed the service and meals much better. Very disappointed. If you can't do it right....

    We booked this restaurant for 5280 week only because I wanted to go to a place we had never been to and I was so pleased with the whole experience. They had a great selection on the menu, the food was great, the staff were very professional, there was a big bar as well that had a large variety of drinks. I would recommend this place and would definitely return.

    Huge disappointment. Returned to what was once a special place for us after some years of absence living out of town. Our past wonderful memories were tarnished by lackluster food and rote service. The Chef's Special I ordered was uninteresting and ingredients were either overcooked or undercooked. The server had no sensitivity to what was happening at the table. Bread arrived after the salad. Wine for dinner arrived after entrees served (had to ask). Plates not removed as needed. Coffee after was weak; no ready refills etc. We will not return or recommend the restaurant. What happened?
