We were disappointed and angry. In October, we made reservations for their Thanksgiving menu. This was the reason we selected this restaurant on Thanksgiving. Upon arrival at 6PM, we were told they were out of Turkey. This was preposterous! Food Planning is part of their business. In addition they did not offer any comp off the main menu and this was their error. The standard menu pricing was more expensive.

Went for thanksgiving dinner and looked at thanksgiving menu prior to making reservation. Ive been before some years back and had a good experience. Upon arrival, hostess tells us that they ran out of turkey which is pretty surprising given that I overheard a waiter saying how almost everyone made reservations-so if they knew how many people were coming for thanksgiving turkey, order enough? They offered no discount for their mistake since we then had to order off regular menu. Sat at table the whole time with empty drinks and waitress that did not offer to refill them. Bad service overall. Did not reflect the prices they wanted to charge. Couldve gotten better service at Cracker Barrel (and better portion sizes for that!)

Thanksgiving Dinner for our first visit in Charlotte. I ordered crab legs which came out dry and cold. The salmon dinner my husband ordered he says was mediocre. Maybe our expectations were too high. Not sure but we were both a little disappointed

The food was just ok. My plate was Luke warm. I’m not a complainer so I just ate it. My husband said the salmon was amazing.

Very disappointed! Our reservation was for 5:30pm on Thanksgiving. When we sat down at our table the waiter informed us that they ran out of the items on the Thanksgiving Menu!! Ruined our Thanksgiving!

Went for Thanksgiving traditional Turkey dinner. After we ordered drinks, our waiter informed us they were out of the Turkey holiday meal. VERY disappointing! How do you run out of the special when you know exactly how many reservations you had? Place was packed with disappointed diners. Bread arrived at the end of our meal. The food we ordered was fine but not what we came for. Poor management! Will not be back.

My husband’s steak was cooked perfectly; my salmon was undercooked. Disappointed that management did not even take the time to talk to us about our meal.

For the most part the food was disappointing! Truffle fries tasted like fast food, truffle Mac n cheese dried out and crunchy, scallops with linguini were ridiculously small and pasta sauce was awful (actually inedible). Why does an iced tea need to be $3.89?!? No refills offered on water or beverages. Would not go back and did not enjoy the meal.

Our family was COMPLETELY underwhelmed by McCormick & Schmick’s!!! This was only my second time in years having ever attended this restaurant and it was not deja vu. My mom, husband, and daughter had never dined here. The first time I ever attended this restaurant was for an office Christmas party and it was simply spectacular, food, ambience, everything. Therefore, when our daughter requested a nice five star dining experience for her 23rd Bday, this was one of the restaurants that she suggested.

Unfortunately, this turned out to be a terrible decision to celebrate such a special and momentous occasion. The food was TERRIBLE. It was tasteless and poorly seasoned, the spinach tasted as if someone had dumped a box of salt on it, my daughter’s steak wasn’t prepared properly, the lemonade even tasted bitter. The rock music was so loud & obnoxious that we couldn’t hear each other talk. Not to mention we made reservations on Open Table for 8:45pm
and the restaurant closes at 9pm, therefore, the staff was rushing to clean the restaurant so that they could go home, understandably. Why would you allow patrons to schedule reservations so close to the end of operations. Had I known that the restaurant closed at 9pm
before making my reservations, I would never had done so. $200+ dollars later & there you have it. Second & LAST VISIT!!!

Appetizers were great but main courses came out cold. When we ask them to remake, they just reheated and brought back to the table.

There were 6 of us. We were seating in a corner area with a curtain which was perfect. It felt a bit private and allowed us to have easy conversations due to a lower noise level.

Even though the service started out a bit slow (somewhat expected), it picked up nicely and everyone was very friendly and attentive.

Everyone totally enjoyed every course of their meal. The food has always been outstanding.

Reservation was fulfilled on time. Hosts and servers were welcoming. Server was outstanding, knowledgeable, and guided us through menu questions with class.
Great atmosphere and amazing food. No brainer for lunch and cocktails in Uptown Charlotte.

Food was great but I called at various times throughout the day in the week prior to our reservation date. I simply wanted to inquire about parking but no one ever answered the phone and their mailbox is full so you can’t leave a message.

We waited 20 minutes after seating for a server to even show up and get drink orders. I had to go to hostess stand to ask for someone. Food was good, but nowhere near price point. Steak was way overdone, salmon portions tiny for price. Desserts were even wrong with creme brûlée being underdone (no sugar crust shell) and chocolate pie was tough. Taste was good, but service and overall food experience was Outback level when I paid $300 for a party of 4. Honestly disappointed.

We waited an hour for our food and when it came out it was cold. We had no choice but to eat it because we had to be at a show by 7:00. I still tipped 20% but it was a huge disappointment.

Impeccable food and service. Food was hot and fresh. No long waiting. Our server was awesome. Complimentary hot bread w/butter. Grilled salmon, mashed potatoes and spinch was absolutely delicious. Nice view of the city streets. Great cozy spot for romantic, intimate dining.

Not at all impressed. I went out for a"nice" dinner with my husband, and to be honest, we should have just ordered takeout from our favorite chicken spot instead. There were a total of 10 tables full, yet the staff seemed overwhelmed, rushed and forgetful. My husband's ribeye was cooked perfectly. I took a few bites and it was the best part of my meal. My lobster was overcooked and full of shells, so every bite felt like a dangerous game of roulette. My mashed potatoes were covered by a "gravy" that didn't move. When I alerted the staff about the shells in every bite, I was given a "free dessert", which arrived right away - when we hadn't yet finished our cocktails, and actually had just ordered more. Note to establishments: please don't bring out dessert when the customer trying to enjoy a Moscow mule. Especially a dessert with ice cream. They don't go together. Needless to say, the dessert melted and remained untouched. We drove 30 minutes for a "nice" dinner that ended up feeling like we had been grossly overcharged for a fast food meal.
