My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary here last night. Our server was Zachariah and he was excellent!! Very attentive our entire visit. Everyone was friendly and helpful from the moment we walked in the door until we completed our visit. The chef fixed us oysters rockerfella upon request even though it wasn't on the menu! Every thing was fulfilling and delicious! If you're visit the CNN Center location, we highly recommend this restaurant and request Zachariah to be your server. You'll be glad you did!

Nice place. We were there for a pre-concert dinner. Arrived a few minutes early, but had to wait until our reservation time to be seated. Service was good once seated, and the preparation of the food was excellent. Good wine and beer selection. Location near State Farm arena is good for pre event meal.

I usually have a good experience at M&S, but this evening, not so much. The wait staff seemed stretched thin. The food was not its usual good quality, therefore, the expense was not worth it this time.

Food was very good and location is great if going to the Arena. Service was slow. While I understand they were busy it took longer than it should have to be seated (with a res) and it took very long to get our wine order delivered.

I planned it to be super busy before a concert, but either our server lost our ticket or the kitchen did... our food took absolutely too long. 4 tables around us got their food before us and we ordered around the same. I did mention it to our server and I figured he would’ve brought the manager over or tried to take care of our cocktails or something... I overall wasn’t really satisfied.

First and last time at McCormack’s. Service was horrid and exceptional slow. We asked to speak to the manager, who never made it to our table. Food was not worth the value. Would not recommend to anyone. Very disappointed.

We went here for dinner after an Atlanta United game and had a great meal. The food and service was great, we will be back again to try something different on the menu as they offer some great choices.

Yes Tillman needs 2 stop serving a plate of 3oz salmon / 2 baby stuffed shrimp and 3 baby grilled shrimp along with masked pots and green beans for $31!!! Other plate was maybe 6oz salmon and veggies for $30 —— oh we did get bread
It’s said that such a low food cost on the plates are paying for his hello—- never will return - so sad as it use to be. TOP 10 chain in the USA

This was one of the best meals I have had in a long time! The steak and stuffed shrimp, lobster bisque, salad, bread and lobster mashed potatoes were incredible!! The service was amazing as well! I will be going back when I’m in Atlanta.

We were running late, I called and was assured it wasn’t a problem. This was nice. I’d requested a quiet table, with a view if possible (having never been to this restaurant). We were seated in a room next to a party of about 20 people, as well as other tables of guests. I guess there would have been a view next to the windows but we weren’t next to them. The rest of the interior of the restaurant was almost empty. Definitely not quiet, we could barely hear each other. We ordered appetizers and dinner and they were all brought at once! We were eating our shrimp cocktail along with our lobster mashed potatoes. We received a free dessert for my daughter’s birthday.

Three of us ate dinner at McCormicks and Schmick’s on the evening of the Jennifer Lopez concert in downtown Atlanta. We were disappointed that there was only a limited menu offered and not the full menu. Therefore we had to ask if we could order salads with a 5 ounce piece of grilled salmon. We were told the up charge for 5 oz of salmon was 15 plus the salad price. That came to approximately $26 per salad. We did do it but we didn’t think it was worth it as one of the salads came with a very flat end piece of salmon with very little salmon flakes on it. A big disappointment also was the featured “Chocolate Bag” dessert that did not contain much fruit at all nor was did it look at all like the Chocolate Bag dessert photo featured on the marquee outside the restaurant. Certainly not at all worth $15. Very disappointed with this restaurant.

The Service we received was amazing; our Server was fun and did everything she could to make it a very pleasant experience. Would like to be able to order more from the regular menu even though there was a concert that night.

Our family was visiting from out of state enjoying the many museums in the Centennial Park area. After a long day, we wanted to sit down and enjoy something other than fast food. Although the atmosphere is more fine dinning than family focused, our family of seven was immediately seated in a private room with a sliding door. It felt like we had the restaurant to ourselves. We didn't have to worry about kids being too loud or feeling underdressed. They even parked our double stroller along with all our gift shop purchases in a secure room. Everyone went above and beyond to make us feel at home. Would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing and delicious meal.

The meal was ok. Service ok. For the price you pay, I would expect the experience to be better. I travel to Atlanta twice a year for business. There are too many other good restaurants not far from the area. I don’t plan to revisit this one.

We were seated quickly for our reservation, but our server was the worst. He was sooooo slow to take drink orders. Then he came back and said the bar was backed up for our cocktails (the dining room was not even half full). He said the seafood is the worst. I still ordered it... it was good. He ended the night asking how our terrible seafood was. Very strange. We waited twenty minutes for our checks. I think he needs a new job.

They were running about 30 minutes behind on reservations, then when we sat down our server told us that the kitchen was taking 30-40 minutes for food to come out. So overall dinner was a lot longer than we expected. The food was okay- not as good as I remember it being previously. I’m guessing that since they were running behind the kitchen was being hasty in preparing the dishes. Very loud too. I’d still recommend because I am assuming this was an isolated bad experience since I’ve enjoyed this restaurant before.
