Restaurant has great location and views but tables were very plain with just white tablecloths and no candles, flowers or any inside decor. I realize Covid protocols may restrict it but the ambiance just wasn’t there. Perhaps lower the overhead lighting a bit would help. Food was okay. They offered same roasted potatoes and daily mixed vegetables on every plate so basically the only varietal was the type of meat to go with the potatoes and vegetables.

It started off rough with not getting the special table we had requested. And then took 15 minutes before we had to ask the hostess if we had a waiter as nobody made contact with us after being seated. The hostess ended up bringing water and ultimately our food. It appeared they were severely understaffed. It definitely was not the McCormick experience that I’m used to from across the country when I travel for business or pleasure. I’m not sure if we’ll be back. Love you was great.

The ambiance and view was outstanding. Our server was kind and very attentive. The food was not great. We had an artichoke dip that was delicious, but that was it. I had the lobster dinner and they were very salty and it came with bell peppers on the side. Odd combination.

The service was excellent. The restaurant was only opened for two days since the SIP. Proper protective measures were taken, including masks and social distance. There were some hiccups because the restaurant was just opening after the shutdown.

Great view of the Bay and sunset. We were celebrating a birthday; the staff was very accommodating---they placed the cake topper and candles on the cake before presenting it. Anisthasia served our table with with quiet efficiency. The food was delicious and portioned appropriately. A great experience.

It's a "Maybe". The food was excellent in flavor, and presentation. However, the room was a bit cold, which made it uncomfortable. But mostly the reason for the low review is due to the service. The waitress while competent was not friendly. When people are paying for a night out the expectation is for "authentically friendly service". More training is needed. Also, plates were cleared before one of our guest was finished which made it awkward. Etiquette is that plates should not be cleared unless motioned until the last guest is ready. Also it was not nice to see plates piled onto one another while at the table.

One of my favorite restaurants in SF. Because it’s in Ghirardelli Square, I bet some people assume this is a tourist spot. But it’s a wonderful place that real locals treasure. Great menu, great food, service, ambiance, and location. A Gem.

An old favorite of ours. Still definitely worth visiting for terrific views and excellent food, but, given the increased competition, could use a little step up in professionalism of service and freshening up of decor. Fish, salads and side dishes were excellent and fairly priced given that it’s waterside in San Francisco. But would have been nice if the bread was warm, there was a generous serving of butter, the server checked on us, and they got a new carpet. Not really a complaint, just that “really superior” is within management’s grasp if they wish.

We absolutely loved dinner at McCormick. I made a note it will be Birthday, for party of 5, and they printed at the top of menu Happy Birthday and the Date - it was nice touch.
Everything what we ordered - were delicious: appetizers, main, dessert, aromatic wine and Champagne. We had beautiful view! Service was perfect. I would absolutely recommend this Restaurant for special occasion or just casual dinner. Reasonably priced considering great quality of food.

Took my 13 year old grandson before a show and he loved the view of the water and loved his meal. He couldn't stop talking about it. My husband and I were impressed too, the service was great and we loved our meal selections. We will certainly go back.

I was in town with three co-workers this week who had never been to San Francisco. I chose to bring them to McCormick & Kuleto's because of the reputation and scenic environment, and although the scenery was spectacular, the food was not was was expected. For starters, one of our co-workers ordered a filet and was given a sirloin, and when it was brought to our servers attention, she said that it would be addressed with the manager. Initially she offered to take the meal off the tab, but then changed the offer to a free dessert? Additionally, the rib eye that I ordered was relatively dry and flavorless, even though it was cooked medium rare.

Although the waitress was funny and engaging, the fact that the manager never came to the table to address the error in meals, and changed his or her mind with regards to the "compensation" was disappointing. When spending $100+ per person for a meal, one expects the service level to be exemplary, and that simply wasn't the case with our dinner. If you're going to spend that much money on a meal, my recommendation would be to go to the Capital Grille.

I should preface this review with a bit of insight about our group, and that we are easy-going however we are used to eating good food. We are also used to eating good seafood.I would not, under any circumstance, recommend this restaurant. Our server was so poorly trained she was barely able to perform basic job functions. The food was just alright for the most part. My plate and one other person in my party’s dinner was completely inedible. Our server did not do a quality check, so I wasn’t even afforded an opportunity to return my plate. And even when they took away my dinner plate with two bites of food taken out of it no one thought to ask me if it was all right, and still proceeded to charge me the full amount of my dinner. I paid it because frankly having to explain how bad it was was going to take more energy than I had at the moment. I would not suggest going here. There are so many other restaurants in San Francisco that offer a quality food service andNo one should be subjected to what we experience that at McCormicks. In fact no one in our group bothered to complain because it just felt like it would fall on deaf ears

The server was great and very attentive. The food was amazing and very filling. It was a bit of a disappointment because my dad received his food last and late (after everyone finished their meals) and it was his birthday. He rushed to eat because we were already done and waiting. We didn’t order dessert but I did put it was his birthday and he didn’t receive anything. I would definitely come back though.
