Worst dining experience that I have ever experienced. I waited 45 min after being seated for my appetizer to arrive. Once my entree was brought to the table, it was ice cold. There were several tables who were also waiting for an extended period of time for their meals. I requested to see the manager but apparently she was too busy to speak to me. I waited to speak with her for more than 15 min to share my experience and she never came over to speak with me. Awful service, terrible food!

People that arrived after us, with the same size party, were seated before us. We waited 30 minutes to be seated when the dining room was half empty. Our server was non-existent and my pasta dish was inedible. The kids chicken tenders were served with 4 French fries total.

While the food itself tasted relatively good, it arrived to the table cold, which for seafood in my opinion, makes it a little less palatable.

Nice atmosphere and waitress was great 👍🏾!!! Small portions plates but , the taste and presentation of the meal looks and taste great . I recommend the salmon. Reservations are a must or you will be waiting , being that the restaurant is at the CNN center. We made reservations for 7:15 and we were seated by 7:17 ....

Arrived at 615pm for a 645pm reservation. Was advised I would be seated closer to reservation time. I watched people arriving after me be seated up to 645pm. I saw one hostess point to another couple who arrived after me and call their name as Williams. I went to hostess station 3 times AFTER 650pm asking about our table and waitress kept telling me I would be seated soon. Another hostess asked my name 4 times and I gave it to her. Finally after 7pm and watching more parties arrive and be seated when I had been waiting an hour for my seat I told hostess this was unacceptable and I needed a manager. Finally, waitress seated me and advised they thought they had already seated me. Definitely set the scene for a horrible dining experience! Especially for a $140 meal! Not sure I will be going back. 😢

My first McCormick & Schmidt experience was in Raleigh NC. I had a Ribeye Steak and my wife had the King Crab Leg. Thought it was one of the best meals I'd had recently. What a disappointment in Atlanta. Had a Ribeye. Tuff & Dry. No flavor. Ordered the Roasted Potatoes and got maybe a 1/4 to a 1/2 of a potato. My wife ordered the Scallops and I promise they were no bigger than a Quarter and there was only 4. Not a good meal.

Food excellent, service outstanding, drinks of good quality, excellent dining value for money spent, noise level unbearable. I spoke with one of the managers who agreed with my assessment that this is a great restaurant to visit with someone you do not want to talk to. Typical busy downtown evening atmosphere as expected and in spite of the horrendous noise - music too loud, general noise level totally out of control - we enjoyed a great meal. Sadly, however, we will not be back.

The bar and bar tenders were wonderful and it was a pleasure waiting in the bar. Once seated, the server was inattentive, very long delay between soup and main entree with no visits from the server in between. When the main entree was served it was stone cold! Server did not come back for at least ten minutes to see if our food was ok. I ate my steak, the stuffed shrimp and broccoli were stone cold. I sent the shrimp back and it was returned to me scalding hot tasting like it had been put in a microwave or other heating device. Needless to say the shrimp was now over cooked. We used to love dining at McCormick and Schmick’s but needless to say we will not be returning to this location.

This was a birthday celebration & we decided to eat here because we enjoyed the Landrys franchise in Vegas. We didn't realize that we were entitled to a birthday coupon since we have the Landrys reward card. Anyway this was icing on the cake! We ordered the ribeye ($46!) and trout. I was disappointed that the meal didn't come with a side and salad but our server was willing to substitute our side for anything which was extremely nice. Anyway the dinner was tasty and my boyfriend enjoyed his steak so I have no complaints except that the parking was a little difficult to find in downtown Atlanta. We ended up calling the restaurant 2X for directions to the parking lot (sounds stupid right!) but there are 2 parking lots across from the restaurant. Be sure to park in the correct parking lot and have your parking pass validated (saves $20!). The staff were EXCEPTIONAL and very helpful. I stress that because while we were dining another guest fell and they rushed over to assist her. The manager came out twice to ask us about the meal and service then they topped it off with a nice serving of cake, ice cream and candles to blow out for the birthday boy. I would recommend this restaurant. Though it was pricey, the service and food make up for it!

We arrived 15 min late for our reservation so got there at 10pm instead of 9:45pm (we did not account for an event getting out at the CNN center and the additional traffic - sorry McCormick's). The crew was still friendly but couldn't seem to decide where to seat us.
Being a steak & seafood restaurant, I ordered the filet minion & 2 lobster tails. I requested medium rare with NO pepper; also the broccoli come extra well done with NO pepper. My husband ordered the 'andouille/shrimp mac and cheese'. We had to request bread (I've never been to a high-end restaurant where no bread was brought as an aperitif - is this normal for McCormick's?!?). Our meal was brought out and I could tell simply by looking at my steak that a) it was over-cooked and b) coated in pepper. Not just a little but COATED. I cut into the steak and yes, medium well & peppered to the max. I also didn't have any broccoli; the server explained she was having the kitchen cook it more.
Maybe if I hadn't been paying $55 for this meal I wouldn't have been disappointed to not only have part of my dinner delayed but to also have my steak at a steak restaurant totally wrong. The server graciously took the steak back to get me another as my husband dug in to his 'mac and cheese' (more like a traditional penne with white sauce). So I ate my lobster tails which were cooked rather well (still a bit overdone). And then waited. And waited. And waited some more. My husband finished his meal and still we waited . . . .the manager finally came over and said they were still working on my steak (did they have to go find the cow?!?). Steak & broccoli came after an inordinate amount of time. Both were much better but I can't fathom how it took so long.
The dessert of white chocolate bread pudding (comped for our wait, thank you for that bit of redemption McCormick's!) was very good and I'd definitely recommend the dessert. I wouldn't, however, recommend anything else or the restaurant.

My husband and I came for Valentine’s Day. We arrived at 8:30 for a 8:45 reservation. I advised the host of our reservation and she stated as soon as we our time came we would be seated. Well, we were not seated until 9:00 pm. As others arrived with the same reservation time they were immediately seated. It was only after I went back to the hostess and told her we had reservations that we were seated. We ended up at a small table with me having difficulty getting in and sitting down. The waiter was great. The food was awesome. It was expected to be loud as many people were celebrating Valentines Day. But the hostess staff needs to do better.
