The food is definitely overpriced for the quality. The ambience was nice and quiet and the service was fair. Parking is not free, I wouldn’t recommend just because I thought the food would be so much better than it appeared due to the location.

We absolutely enjoyed our meal here. Both the filet (with added lobster tail) and the Sunday special 3 course meal were fantastic. That Sunday special is an amazing deal! Salad, crab cake stuffed flounder, and then a dessert for only $25! Great night out with great food and service.

I was particularly impressed by their willingness to make me a mojito mock tail that tasted just like the real thing! We ordered the stuffed salmon, calamari, lobster bisque and stuffed flounder. Food was awesome! They have the best lobster bisque.

We can never visit Atlanta without an evening at M&S. Always a treat! It was New Years Day after the Chik-fil-A bowl (Go Dawgs!) and I requested a quiet table as I have a hearing problem. (Understanding my wife, Janice, is a very good thing!). We were seated in one of the enclosed tables which worked great. The staff always try to make special requests happen. I chose one of my favorites, their signature Cobia with sautéed veggies, and Janice got the stuffed salmon. We enjoyed them both very much. Janice loves their Chocolate Silk Pie, and I chose the Cheesecake with strawberry topping. After lingering over coffee for a few minutes, we exited our little private room fully satisfied. Our server, Kamari, who we have had the pleasure of her attention before, was excellent as always. Thank you, Kamari!

New Years Eve dinner. At the table, the black napkins were clearly soiled with brown-red sauce dried over the top of them. Did not know who our server was & had to ask the hostess, because after a considerable period of time, no one came. 2 of the party ordered different types of steak, cooked in 2 different ways, & they were both dry. The ribeye requested in medium-rare was dry...I don't know how that is possible. The server was kind, the staff were very nice, it is a nice looking restaurant. I would not eat there again. Atleast not for steak, salad, or sides. I was so excited because it came highly recommended by a colleague & a friend.

The food was just horrible. No flavor. I felt like I was at a regular place eating regular food. It was FAR from fine dining. I will never attend again. Our waitress was sweet, but the food was a NO

Made Reservations, walked into A front door with no host, stood around at the front door waiting to be greeted and seated for 15 minutes, not A busy time it was 40 minutes till closing, after finally being sat, we waited another 15 for A actual server to come to our table to ask for drink order, we literally called the restaurant while at our table just to ask for A server to come to our table because we had been sat and waiting for so long, our server needed help because she had a lot of tables and not enough staff available, the food wasn’t really bad, it was just the service, it wasn’t even busy, never seen A hostess or manager, literally was A slow night just understaffed, our dessert was comped, I will Not even dare return!

M&S has never been disappointing. We have dined there once or twice a year when in the ATL for various events. I had requested a quiet table since I have been experiencing a hearing problem recently. Being able to enjoy a conversation with Janice while eating was a good thing. We were seated in one of their enclosed booths complete with sliding door. Really nice! Our server, Kamari, appeared immediately to welcome us and take drink orders. A very pleasant young man who was genuinely warm and accommodating. Janice decided to try a Chambord martini while I had a taste for a Sazerac. Both came in a matter of moments. Our entrees were their signature Cobia with steamed veggies and the stuffed salmon. Delicious! We had saved a little room for dessert, so I ordered the cheesecake with strawberries and Janice got the chocolate silk pie. Portions so large we took half of them home for a treat tomorrow. Special thanks to Kamari for taking such good care of us!

It was a mess. They didn’t know about the special on Thursdays. Then I was told they had one steak left. Then they cooked my steak wrong several times. I was so hungry I gave up and ate it.

We are Veterans, and we can there for the Veterans Day meal. My lady became very sick after eating the Prime Rib Center cut meal. She was sick on the stomach all night and could not stay out the bathroom (both ends) It triggered a migraine that lasted two days. We supported McCormick and Schmidt this year because of what you do for Veterans and what you went through from the time you were closed. However, this was the worst meal we have ever had! It was not worth the $95.35 we spent.Devin, our server, did a wonderful job of taking care of us, and we took care of him.

While the food was good, the overall experience did not meet my expectations for a premium dining experience.

Our server was friendly. However, the gentleman who delivered our food was very sloppy. For example, we ordered three different dishes. Rather than saying hello and asking who ordered what, he just approached our table and started to hand me a dish without saying a word. I corrected him and told him where each plate needed to go. While placing a plate in front of one of my guests, he hit a glass of water with the plate he was serving, spilling water onto the table. No apology was made, nor did he clean the mess up or refill the glass. I ended up having to ask our server for refills when she came back later. It is worth noting that she did not appear to notice the mess or the fact that we all needed refills at that point. I ended up wiping the spilled water up myself.

Parking in the sapphire lot is also no longer validated.

It was nice to get dressed up and go downtown for dinner, but based on the dining experience we had, I would not recommend this location to any friends or family.

Our waitor was awesome and very attentive, he gave good recommendations and we never needed anything! That’s the best! The drinks were nicely strong. I had crab cakes and they were great, the veggies with it were delicious as well. My husband had twin lobster tails and veggies, and they were tasty as well. Happily will return!
