The food and drink itself was very good, on par with what you expect from this chain and this price point. The service was a bit uncomfortable - I never felt like she was interested in being there or making recommendations.

Food was like a glorified Red Lobster. Portions were tiny. Very disappointing. Will not be returning. And service was extremely slow....sorry to interrupt our waiters gaming for our meal. Won’t happen again.

We were dining out to celebrate the accomplishments of our grad school daughter. The booth was an unexpectedly pleasant touch. The wait staff was excellent. Very knowledgeable as to menu choices and made several helpfusuggestions. The food was excellent. In fact it would rate as one of the best meals we have experienced in quite a while.

This was the worst experience I have had in Atlanta. Food was nothing to brag about and certainly was overpriced. The service was absolutely her Renda‘s. Our server disappeared on several occasions. The one we ordered it took 45 minutes to arrive to our table. We received our appetizers prior to the wine. There was a hair in my dad’s (birthday boy) food, my husband’s shrimp were still frozen, My sisters crabcakes tasted like Palmolive. It was a complete disaster! We were a party of eight but it was a Sunday afternoon and there was absolutely nobody there! It was such a disappointing experience.

Food was very good but the wait was extremely long. This was only due to a 70000 person event at the Mercedes dome which had just let out two hours prior. We were seated in less than 15 minutes but the kitchen was a bit overwhelmed due to the app for mentioned crowd. I would think that during normal days of non large events it would be a very reasonable time for dinner

Awful. Had lunch reservations and were sat 10-15 minutes late with 15+ open tables. Saw our waitress a total of 3 times with one water refill when we got our check. Calamari app was fine. Lobster cobb salad was the worse $20+ dollar salad I’ve had in my life. Tiny amount of shredded lobster on a bed of salad bar string romaine you’d expect in a taco bowl at a cheap Mexican restaurant. Wife ordered a burger and it was fine

The lobster bisque had too much tomato base and they included croutons without stating it on the menu. We do not eat bread so it should be stated on the menu or at least let us know. Also the scallops on the appetizer menue are covered in breading, taking away from the taste of the scallops. Very disappointing!

Soooooo........My reservation was for 6:00PM.
We arrived at 5:45.
The hostess would not seat us until 6:00PM even though through were at least 4-5 open tables.
I asked her why and she said that there were reservation times ahead of us.
We stood and waited and no one was seated prior to us from 5:45 -6:03 PM. The same 4-5 tables remained opened.
At 6:03 she seated us at one of those 4-5 open tables.
That just bothered me.
Despite the seating issue, our food came out fast and was great and our server Mark was wonderful.

The food was amazing, however the service was terrible. Uncleaned silverware, annoyed waitress, drunk at the bar hitting on every woman that walked by, second waitress didn't know how to open a bottle of wine and broke the cork, and they swept under our table while we were eating, hitting our feet and legs with the broom. I would never recommend this restaurant.

We LOVE McCormick and Schmicks. We eat here whenever we attend an event at Mercedes Benz stadium or Phillips Arena. We do not get into the city often but McCormick and Schmicks is our first go-to option. We were late for our reservation because of highway and concert Traffic. The assistant General Manager Shavon Nesbitt worked with us and got us seated within 10 minutes. She checked on us during our dining experience and helped us with our Landry's Select club card. She made our experience unforgettable. We love with staff and management engage patrons.

Food and service were both good but nothing outstanding or memorable. I used to eat at the Skokie Illinois location on a regular basis until I moved to Florida. Loved it, and that was why we ate there every week. Was excited to visit this location with high expectation. Perhaps because we were there for lunch instead of dinner? Maybe they save there best for the dinner diners? Anyway, not bad and we will go back again because they are on Open Table and right around the corner from the convention center.
