    Great customer service, average food which is overpriced. Ordered the M&S Mixed Grill: asked for medium steak tips, got close to well done. Salmon was good, but portion was very small. Only got 3 little shrimps. Ordered a side order of fries: were somewhat stale and not that tasty. I think the best part of the meal was the bread.

    We ate here on New Year's Eve, so maybe our bad experience was atypical. First, we were seated in front of a loud musician. While music tastes are subjective, we could barely have a conversation over the noise. As for the service, I wish our waitress had just told us she had just started (we confirmed with another server while leaving that she was new.) It was comical after a while. Wine took 20 minutes to arrive, waitress didn't know how to use a corkscrew, we asked twice if we could order and instead she kept coming to our table to fill waters. Had to aske teice for a fourth place setting. A "BLT" salad inexplicably came with no bacon, one mid-well steak came mid-rare. Other servers kept coming by with food and wine we hadn't oredered.

    Pleasantly surprised at how good the food and service actually was. We have been fans of McCormick and Schmicks seafood restaurant for the past 10 years and never thought M&S grill could be as good, we were wrong. The M&S grill was terrific and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the evening.

    We were somewhat surprised to get a last minute reservation on New Year's Eve but even more surprised at how excellent the service was from our waiter to the floor manager. Service was supreme! Top that off with excellent food from the soup through to the dessert and we ended up with an excellent evening. Thank you

    We arrived at 5:30pm, due to no available reservations later. The restaurant was mostly empty (new year's eve). But we were rushed through the entire meal. We literally were in and out in 30 minutes but that was because the waitress couldn't wait to get us to choose something and get out. She asked us what we wanted to drink about 5 times in the first 8 minutes. We had not finished the appetizer, which was served with no plates, and she brought us dinner. It got cold before we could eat it. She whisked away the wine glasses and bread plates before we could blink. The food was not very good either. We won't be going back there- ever.

    I was happy to find a steakhouse open for Christmas dinner! My steak came a bit overcooked for medium and they immediately offered to redo it or give me a free desert. It still tasted wonderful even though it was slightly overdone so I went with the free desert! The waiter (Will) couldn't have been more attentive or nicer. My friend's meal was cooked perfect and sooo yummy. :) They originally sat us by the front door and whenever it opened, there was a cold breeze. We luckily were able to move tables. The original room by the front door had a nice ambience but a cold breeze. We ended up sitting tucked away in a small aisle and really didn't see much of the backroom or kitchen but no cold breeze and we were happy. Will definitely go back.

    Steaks were good. That's it, all else was ghastly. Even the steaks had been sitting too long before they were served, as they were barely warm when they arrived at our table. The quality of the meat was very good, however. Ambiance was loud and crowded and way too bright with extra empty tables stacked by the bar. Messy, with too much overhead lighting to emphasize the shortcomings. Service was terrible. We had to ask for everything, sometimes more than once. And BTW, the noise level was a lot more than "energetic", although it appears that is the most unfavorable critique one can offer. We will not be making a return visit.

    We had reservations for Christmas dinner at 4:00. The wait was not long before we were seated, and the server was very responsive to our table's needs. This is the first time in 20+ years that we have gone out for dinner on Christmas Day, and the dinner was enjoyable. I would definitely go to M&S Grille again and recommend it to my friends as well.

    Arrived on time for our reservation Christmas Eve and were told it would be "about 5 minutes" to be seated because "the kitchen needed to catch up". There were empty tables but a lot of people waiting in the bar -- they did not comp drinks during the more than 1/2 hour wait. Table not set for the correct number of people and needed to ask for set-up-- which arrived one item at a time. Once seated service was okay, but lacked professionalism. For instance at one point we were told "it won't be long more than half your order is already up"....not too reassuring because more than half the order arrived cold. Recent visits here have shown they have slipped seriously and are no longer the service and top food oriented M&S Grill we once knew.

    Had reservations and were seated promptly. The first booth was next to the kitchen, but we were moved promptly when we requested. Filet Mignon was grossly undercooked and sent back to the kitchen. Once returned, the sides were stone cold. New sides were brought out but only after it was pointed out by us. Overall, the floor staff tried very hard and the maitre'd was tremendous. I sense the kitchen was understaffed for Christmas Eve as it took a long time to get the food out. I would go back again, just not for a special occasion.

    Victor
    Dined on 12/21/2013
    We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. However, the service was very bad by the following reasons: 1. We were put in a very noisy part of the restaurant when the rest of the restaurant was half empty. 2. The server was busy attending other tables while other servers were idling chatting by the server station. 3. Taking our orders felt as if we were in a burger joint where you look over the menu above the kitchen. The server never went thru the specials, just pulling the pad to take the order. 4. The order was wrong, forgetting to bring appetizers until they brought the food. 5. Because of the delay of the appetizers, the kitchen tried to hold the food, making it worse. Bottom line: High price food/Bad service is not worth the time

    The reservation system was so easy and very nice to have something work first time I use it. Sending invites and outlook calendar updates from the site was fantastic! I even updated and it worked great. I got a call to confirm just before and that was great. The food was good and everyone enjoyed lunch. The only thing that was different was that there was no bread on the table but Kristin fixed that quickly when we asked.

    We went her to celebrate my birthday. Great service, great ambience, poor, poor food. Everything came out on piping hot plates, but those were the only things that were hot. Every single item of our meal were cold. My son even had to ask the waiter to heat up his mashed potatoes, which the waiter graciously offered to bring out another side of "hot" potatoes. Unfortunately, when it came out, it was lukewarm. The portions of the sides needs to be better. Other steak houses err on the side of larger rather than smaller, but here it's all small. The three small sprigs of broccoli, that came with my steak made us all laugh. Coming there with such high expectations, the meals were very such a let down.

    We were placed at a table in the middle of the traffic pattern. Then while getting settled and removing coats we were asked for drinks. During the meal we had to get up and ask for refills from another server and butter for rolls three times. The restaurant was empty and now I know why. The food was good but service was not. And it was not of lack of servers because there were many standing and socializing.

    I love this place for it's friendly atmosphere. The greeting is cheerful and we were seated within minutes of our reservation. My wife had the seafood platter and I had bee medallions. Both meals were delivered in less time than expected and food temperature was very good. I enjoyed a glass of Merlot and she had a lemon drop martini. The room was relatively full of patrons but the noise level was low for table conversation. The manager came by and greeted us and inquired about our meal. Service was great and I would definitely recommend this location to my friends and business associates. A great night of dining.

    This was our first time to the restaurant and were quickly taken to our table and started looking over the menu. We chose the scallops (highly recommended) and salads. Further, a wine recommendation was terrific. Lastly, the manager stopped by and spoke to us for a while which we always enjoy. The restaurant is tastefully decorated, has a good selection of main entrees and good wine list. We highly recommend it.
