Its been ages since I've been to M & S-we had gift cards to use and desperately needed both a kids-free date night and a steak...M & S did NOT disappoint from the appetizers to the main course to dessert. Best top sirloin I've had in a long time and the meatloaf my husband ordered was quite possibly the best we've ever had (although I always tease him for ordering meatloaf at nice restuarants!) Young man who served us was pleasant and attentive without being a nuisance. We will be back!

 (New England)·Dined on December 6, 2017

While the decor was very nice, the service and quality of food was lacking. We had a table of four for dinner. When the rolls came out, they gave us each one. One of the party had soup and asked for another roll and again, he brought out just one for her. The stuffed mushrooms were good and the crabcake was fine (not the best) but the trout and the rice and beans with catfish were unappetizing at best. The server couldn't hear anything over the noise (its holiday time so a noisy restaurant is expected) but he disappeared for very long periods at a time. We travel to that conference annually and will not return to that restaurant again.

We made our reservations through the McCormick and Schmick site, clicking on the link to reserve, which took us to Open Table. Made the reservation, enjoyed a great dinner - and did not realize til later, after wondering why the restaurant did not have our confirmed reservation, that the reservation turned out to be for M & S Grill and not the related restaurant we intended to book for. Have been to, and eaten very well at, both restaurants!

We were there on Thanksgiving- the staff really made the night. From the hostess (didn’t catch her name) to Ryan the manager and Jim...they all made our evening that much more enjoyable so thank you!!

There for Thanksgiving. Food and onion soup was cold even though the plates were hot. Server was not attentive. Recommended expensive wines and then said he didn’t know much about wine. Had to go to bar to refill our soda. Slices of pie were tiny but tasty. Manager was apologetic and corrected everything. Would not go back.

We were very appreciative of the restaurant honoring veterans. Between my husband and I we served for 42 years total. The food was great. I have a concern about our bill. Our receipt shows $27.77. The receipt does not show a place for a tip. We left a $5.00 cash tip. (Table 123/1 reprint receipt # 100223. The amount that appeared on our bank record was $ 37.77. Right now I'm confused. Always check your bill and make sure you have the receipt that shows the tip line.

Veteran's Day Observance; they honor veterans on this day by inviting vets for a great special menu annually! They are to be commended for this tribute! It is very special to be among those who care enough to provide such great food and friendship!

M&S grill offers Veteran’s lunch one day a year around Veterans Day. There is a special menu list for this meal. We go every year. We go here when we are in the Reston Town Center.
I don’t drink beer but others in my party did and they found beers they like.
The staff are very friendly and efficient. I like how they say “my pleasure” whenever you ask for something. It’s kind of old fashioned but it’s such a nice touch.
The manager passed out post cards to fill out. He collected them at the end of the meal and is going to send them to veterans in hospitals.
This is a great place if you are a picky eater or have allergies. They will adapt for you.

M&S Grill has a patio cigar bar right outside the front door. Not only do you have to walk through a fog of smoke to enter the restaurant, but the smoke permeates the entire restaurant. Unless you prefer to dine while inhaling second hand smoke, mediocre service, and mediocre food, you should go elsewhere.

This was the beginning of a fairly terrible date night. Restaurant was empty, but this is Wednesday so I wasn't exactly expecting it to be packed. We began the night with a rather gritty, luke warm lobster bisque - very underwhelming considering our previous visit in April was significantly better. The few other tables around us received the typical welcome bread, which we did not. The one order of Tender Beef Medallions was not cooked as we ordered, and by the time the corrected order came out, the my husband had finished his meal. It's very awkward to watch someone eat while twiddling my thumbs. The kitchen area looks very poorly lit, maybe this contributed to being unable to understand a meats cooking level. Moving on to dessert, I will NOT order the Chocolate Molten Cake again, I recommend the same for anyone reading this. If a typical molten/lava cake is microwaved from frozen for about 3 - 4 minutes, this had seen well over 10. It was very solid, a little difficult to pierce with the spoon, and cold. From start to finish, the entire 'experience' took about an hour and a half, for a restaurant that was dead. Our server had a fun personality, but with the speed of service and quality, we will not be back. After reading some of the reviews on here, it's clear that this is becoming a trend for M & S.

The service was fine and the ambience very pleasant. The problem was the food: the beef medallions were very rare not medium, which was ordered; and the T-bone steak was well done not medium, which was ordered. Both were palatable and not worth re-ordering, but for the money I expect things to be correct, especially as the restaurant was not busy.

I would not recommend this restaurant. Over the past 10 years, particularly after being acquired by Darden, it has just gradually declined to a mediocre experience. I continue to go there, only because it's usually quiet enough to dine with clients. If it gets to noisy, I'll stop coming all together.
But the worst: please don't have my waiter pitch me your 'frequent diner' club card. It's very tacky, and classless.
