We have loved McCormick and Schmick's restaurants in several of their locations. This is was our first visit to the one in Anaheim. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The food was good, not great. My husband's sea bass was a bit tough, although not overcooked. I had a salad and it was good. One of my favorite wines was available by the glass, so I loved that. Overall it was a nice meal, although we felt the food could have been a bit better.

Excellent service last night,as we have always had. My fillet was incredibly tender but flavorful. My wife had the Mahi Mahi with risotto. It was excellent. 3rd time there and we look forward to our next visit.

Granted it was New Years Eve, but the bar completely screwed up our order, the drinks took almost 30 minutes and by the time I got it my martini was nowhere close to ice cold. However, the food was excellent, the service improved as the night went on and by the end we were fully satisfied.

DO NOT Eat here. The customer service/server and management is awful. I made a reservation for a party of 10 at 7:30pm on a Saturday night. The server did not come to our table for 15 min to greet us and then later took or drink order that took another 15 minutes. She blamed everyone for the slow service but that is no excuse. This restaurant is over priced for the POOR quality of food and service. The food arrived to our table at 9:10pm, one hour plus after we placed our order. When I personally mentioned to the server that my meal was cold she argued that could not be possible "RUDE". I was not asking for a new meal I was simply mentioning how after all that wait I was shocked that my food would be cold. Again she did nothing but disagree that the food was not cold. I brought all of this to attention of the manager and he did nothing. I will never eat at this restaurant and DO NOT recommend that you eat here due to the quality of the service and the very low quality of the food.

first time trying this place on Xmas night with friends. Service was great. Food was average, nothing special and over priced. The scallops we ordered came out cold. The sea bass was not just average. For the price they charged I expect better experience.

We went on Christmas Day. We have gone there before for Thanksgiving and for Christmas. We looked online at the menu and they DID NOT list a special menu. We were very disappointed that they did not have their regular menu as we go there for specific items we love. We were told- and completely understand - that they could only work off the Christmas menu. This was disappointing and why they only get 3 stars. They should have updated their website to allow for people to know what to expect.

The man in charge of seating guests was rude and self-important. The waitress asked if we wanted to “share” our water or have our own glasses filled. She offered more breAd and then never brought it. She told one of the guests how good the coffee was apparently in response to how many times she filled his cup. There was nothing exceptional about the food. We came back because it had been so good last Christmas. : (

We had elderly parents and it is 200yds from handicap parking and then their elevator was broken, had to ask for bread, took 45 minutes to receive our food after ordering, over priced for the quality, them to top it off, my daughter realized she had left her purse there after arriving home, we called and asked the staff to look at her seat, they claimed they could not find it, my daughter drive back out there and found it exactly where she had asked the staff to look, in other words the staff did not bother to look... And this is how it was for a Landry's club member

Always enjoy coming here! Food excellent and great service! Great place to celebrate birthday or anniversary. I am glad they are open on Christmas Eve and looking forward to getting prime rib! Too bad it didn't come with yorkshire pudding. I did suggest it to the manager but it takes alot of work to make. Not too many restaurants take the time to make it unless they specialize in prime rib. But I didn't mind, the prime rib was excellent (usually not on the menu, only special holidays).

My main Course was absolutely great, Scallops with Risotto.
The Lobster Tower was delicious but did not look like the image on the Menu,, very little lobster and small pieces.
The Waitress although very nice seemed new, did not really know what a particular meal included, actually did not know. Service was slow even though you were not busy.
Additionally we did not get our bread after wine was served so I caught the Hostess to help and she frankly was rude and just blurted out that she would talk to waitress, still had to wait 10 minutes for the waitress to come to the table and said it would be another 6 minutes according to a timer, we finally got the hot bread but much later than 6 minutes.

My friend and I are both born in December and celebrated our birthdays at McCormick & Schmidt. The food was outstanding. We both started with the coconut shrimp as the appetizer, the pesto chilean seabass was amazing, and ended with an apple walnut crust dessert and creme brulee! Not only was to food amazing the service was excellent. We felt very attended to and our waiter was professional, kind, and warm. I wish I remembered his name for the acknowledgement. I definitely plan on going back there.

Some of the best food we’ve had in a long long time! My date had the seafood trio—scrumptious! I had the stuffed salmon—very fresh, seasoned to perfection, and with gluten-free side dishes. The craft cocktails (Prosecco sangría, Martini, and Bulleit Old Fashioned) were excellent as well.

The sea bass was not fully cooked and was tough and inedible. The caprese salad was served iced cold with only a few mozzarella balls and no seasoning. Heirloom tomatoes should not be served cold. Server offered other entree options but i declined at that point. They did remove the entree from the bill and I am grateful as it was $43.
