My boyfriend and I had a very relaxed and enjoyable date night here. Since they knew we were on a date through the OpenTable app, they gave us a more secluded table which was nice. The food was delicious and not overpriced at all!

It was our first time eating at this location in Atlanta. They food is consistently great as we have eaten at the Kansas City location. We were in one of the private room
Areas and it was great for a private Birthday dinner.

We had a great server all three times we visited in one weekend! Joined for Mother’s Day too. Food was delicious, sweet servers, great beverages! No complaints! (Much better than Ruth’s Chris across the street who couldn’t be ruder to us.)

This is a place where you come in with high expectations. We were not disappointed. Curiously, the slowest thing about the evening was that the hostess was not at her station. It wasn't a real long time, but there's usually someone there waiting to check people in. We had reservations for 6:45, got there early, no problem getting seated. Our section was fairly empty. Server was delightful. Everything came at the right time. Food was delicious. No rush to leave, and we enjoyed the entire evening there.

Overall a decent meal. Nothing spectacular and nothing bad. The sourdough loaf smelled amazing and was a good bread start. I would have liked more horseradish (or better horseradish) in the cocktail sauce for the shrimp cocktail as it was almost undetectable.

All of the entrees came very quickly and were served hot and fresh. Very very consistent and would definitely recommend the sea bass with herb broth and the blackened mahi with andouille potatoes.

If you want a good, consistent, quick meal, this is it. If you want something special and unique, this isn't your place.

Service was very slow. Food was OK, but not worth the prices payed for. Would not recommend since there are much better choices in downtown Atlanta.

I took my wife here for a birthday dinner just before a comedy concert. The staff was great and very knowledgeable about the menu. Wife had the stuffed salmon and I went with the ribeye. We were absolutely pleased. I also tried the Toasted and Smoked drink that was made tableside. Great experience.

The waiter Cj wasn’t a people person at all, or maybe he was just having a bad day which isn’t an excuse at all. He showed extreme poor customer service. The lobster tails were excellent but the steak was ok.

My food was disappointing as many times as I’ve been to this restaurant I’ve never been disappointed by the food until this visit. The shrimp was overcooked, the top of the creme brûlée was burnt not golden as it should be. I couldn’t get the server to refill my water. It was very disappointing.

I remember when McCormick and Schmick's was an excellent seafood restaurant. Under Landry's "leadership," it has transformed itself into an incredibly average, middle-of-the-road shadow of its former self. We won't be returning.
