Half of the staff were wearing masks during the indoor mandate to start. Our server’s personality was very mundane, we never got bread nor was told what the specials were and we had to box our own food to go when the bill was $200 for two? Very disappointing.

Food was toooooo fatty and oily. Masks were not worn by staff and very few customers so I felt like the whole restaurant was unclean. I won't be returning.

This use to be our go to place. Unfortunately this last visit may be our last. Service was poor. We had to ask for beverages to be filled on multiply occasions. My wife’s meal was over cooked and had to be sent back. Food was not hot, more like lukewarm. At this point just wanted to eat, pay, and leave.

We had fantastic service and the dining room was lively, but the entrees were not as good as we had hoped (particularly for the price). Our appetizer and dessert were very good though.

The food was good. Not outstanding. Got the chef special and while it was ok, it didn’t meet the hype that was given to us around it. It was pretty bland and just ok. Not bad, not amazing.

We saved our last night in Charlotte on this trip for one of our favorite spots, McCormick & Schmick’s. We’ve dined there on previous trips to the “Queen City”, and always enjoyed it. Janice chose to begin with a glass of the Prosecco Sangria and a shrimp cocktail. I wanted to try the local oysters from Parker’s Island. Briny with good texture and flavor that stood well with the malt vinegar and herb dip that came along them. Oyster lovers like me would appreciate these locals. Our entrees were: a super tender rare filet mignon for Janice and broiled cobia fillet for me. I did request a change in preparation from the one on the menu. The change was handled with no problem by the kitchen. My fish sat on a bed of sautéed spinach and was topped with a salsa of sweet peppers, onion, and chopped peaches. One of the best dishes I’ve ever eaten. We finished our meal with their signature “Chocolate Bag “ and a new addition a “Pineapple Butter Cake topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Delicious! We could not end here without a big shoutout to our charming server, Serena. She’s really top notch! Thanks again, Serena. You made a very fine meal even more memorable.

It’s been a while since we’ve visited and forgotten how excellent the food is…Parmesan crusted flounder and bourbon glazed salmon were SO good. Just as good was our server, Mickie. She was fun and charming and helpful.

Wait staff was inattentive, took them 15 minutes to check if our order was right. Menu description was wrong, did not mention everything was flavored with Lemon. Way overpriced for what we got. On the plus side they did take 1 entree off the check, but since we really didn't eat any of it that didn't matter much. The shrimp kisses were good, thats about it. Will never try again.

THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME THERE. FIRST IMPRESSION WAS NOT GOOD. DECIDED TO TRY IT BECAUSE IT WAS ON YOUR WEBSITE FOR RESTAURANT WEEK IN CHARLOTTE. THE HOSTESS WAS RUDE WHEN SAID DIDNT PARTISIPATE IN THIS YEAR. ASKED TO SPEAK TO MANAGER WHO REQUESTED ME TO SHOW HIM WHERE I GOT THE INFORMATION FROM WHICH WAS OPEN TABLE. HE SAID HE WOULD TAKE CARE OF IT YET MY BILL WAS 126.00 , WHICH MEANS HE DID NOT HONOR MY INFO . THE WAITER WAS EXCELLENT AND THE FOOD WAS OK JUST SHOULD HAVE BEEN WARMER. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO OUT OF TOWN GUEST WANTING A GREAT DINING EXPERIENCE.

My sister and I came for dinner! We enjoyed the calamari which was nice and crispy. The filet mignon was cooked well and asparagus was great. Both my sister and I got some extra sides too. I got the Mac and cheese and she got the lobster mashed potatoes. This is where we were not impressed, the Mac and cheese unfortunately tasted like buttered noodles with bread crumbs and the very small side of lobster mash potatoes was overpriced and underwhelming. So, just know that, if you go to visit. Apple pie with cinnamon ice cream was good if you get dessert.

First off the food was excellent, one of the best salmon dishes ever with bourbon sauce. The steak was great, properly seasoned and cooked well. Sides were good but nothing stood out, service was ok, but as anyone who is going out right now it is very hard for restaurants to staff with experienced people right now so i gave them a break and tipped accordingly.

Here is why i didn't rate 5 stars across the board, because of what happened when leaving. The saying goes your meal is only as good as the last thing that you experienced and this isn't about desert.

Tryon Street is a mess. It is over-run, under policed and didn't afford a safe exit out of the restaurant on a Saturday night. As soon as we left the restaurant we were accosted (means approached) multiple times. Nothing bad happened, but it sure made me feel uncomfortable when people come up to you and ask for money or comment on how you are dressed or whatever.

Having no parking within a block or so is a problem, we had navigate the street back to the parking lot and having to watch over our shoulders is not the way to end an excellent evening and dinner.

I am a NYer, i don't usually feel uncomfortable ever walking around the city, but on this evening I did. I think this is one of the most important reviews I have ever written and people who are going to dinner at this location and read this and should be aware.

Food was okay at best. Portions were a little small for the price did not seem like I got my moneys worth. Restaurant was generally empty when we arrived and we were squeezed into a tight booth when tables were plentiful. Waitress had to come back a few times to confirm our orders

While on vacation in Charlotte I noticed your restaurant. I don’t eat steak often but when I do I prefer a good steakhouse.I had never heard of your brand so decided to try. I ordered the 3 ounce center cut filet mignon.
I was not disappointed. It was delicious. I ordered the Romain Caesar salad. Just enough before my entree. Mashed potatoes and asparagus were the perfect side dishes. 2 glasses of Pinot Girgio. It was worth the price for the experience. Highly recommend your restaurants.

The food was quite good, although the menu contains fewer items than on previous visits, with less fresh fish choices.
Servers should be taught how to open wine bottle and pour wine.
Servers should be taught not to deliver appetizers and salads to the same person at the same time. These courses should be spaced. If some diners are only ordering just an appetizer or a salad and others are ordering both, the diners with just a single order before the entrée should be asked when they would like it served.
Servers should automatically offer bread to diners.

We really loved everything about this place. The drinks, the apps, the food (although my steak was a little over done it was still tasty, the ambience and the service. Nikki, our server, was amazing!! We will definitely look for more McCormick and Schmick's when we travel.
