Seafood selection limited, entrees expensive and skimpy. Price should include a salad, but doesn't.

Our server, La'Tesha (I think that she also goes by Tesh) was among the best servers we have ever had. She shared with us that she had relocated from Myrtle Beach (where she worked at a Landry restaurant) to Baltimore. Corporate should promote Tesh to a training position, for all Landry-affiliated restaurants, and get her enrolled in restaurant management courses. The food was excellent.

We celebrate many major family events and holidays at M&S and today (3/17) we celebrated my Mother’s 90th birthday. The waiter, Alex was wonderfully, attentive, engaging, and professional. The manager, Elizabeth, recommended that we personalize the menus to include a birthday message and Mom was delighted! Great job M&S.

The cornmeal fried oysters were below average. Everything else was very good.
Having to pay for parking is not a good thing.

I took my mother to McCormick & Schmick to celebrate her 82nd birthday. She LOVED it. I was very happy that we chose to go there. The seating was comfortable. The food was delicious (you must try the shrimp kisses!) We enjoyed our entrés, and my mother raved about her lobster bisque. I thought my rockfish entrée was quite small for $31...but it WAS delicious nonetheless. Our server was lovely and attentive for the most part. I was surprised that she did not even offer a scoop of ice cream or a cookie to my mother since knowing it was my Mom's birthday (and it was noted on the Opentable reservation). Other than that, a great meal was had by Mom and me!

It seems as though the quality has decreased. My previous visit wasn't great, but I decided to give them another try. The food was mediocre and the service was lacking. In addition the music was loud and intrusive and not conducive to a relaxing dinner or conversation.

Everything was ok. The menu is a bit pricey for what you get, but you should probably know/expect that going in. It’s one of those places where you just go in and order whatever you want, and hold your breath when the check arrives - lol.

In any event, for the most part the food was tasty, and the experience was enjoyable and worth repeating.

The Maryland crab soup (recommended by the waitress), was out of this world. As a MD resident and fan of the cuisine, I’ve had my fair share of MD crap soup; this was hands down the best I’ve ever had.

My wife and mother both had the ultimate mixed grill, (which consisted of grilled shrimp, stuffed shrimp, a crab cake and salmon)... which came with sautéed green beans and red pepper/cheddar mashed.

The shrimp were tasty, (I tried some), and they both raved about how delicious the salmon was - however, again - all of us being life long Marylanders, and fans of crab cakes, were all disappointed by the crab cakes. And considering my father got the crab cake sandwich as his meal, that was a big let down.

I chose the seared ahi tuna meal, and the portion size was a bit underwhelming, but that is actually standard for that dish, (and I prepared for such by starting with the soup), the taste of the dish was A+...

We went at 12:30pm on a Saturday, (lunch time, but by no means prime time), and the restaurant was nearly empty. 4-5 total tables filled with patrons.

The waitress was very polite, attentive, engaging and talkative. At no point did we feel like she ever tried to up-sell us or get us to order things to make the check higher, (we have had this big time at Ruth’s Chris Steak House). Aside from explaining dishes we ordered, the only thing she really seemed to recommend was the MD crab soup, which is possibly the cheapest thing on the menu aside from a side dish or two.

The only other negative is that my mother loves her food piping hot, and the food arrived on the warm side, (not hot) however, still acceptable.

Food was good. The front of house was horrible though, the hostess station was not run well. We had a reservation- still had to wait 15mins for a table. And then waited at our table with no water and no greeting for at least 10minutes. It was also very dark in there, and the tea light on our table was broken. We almost left. But then our server came, and she was very nice and our food was delicious. So even though we ended up enjoying our night, we probably will not go back.

The food was good but way overpriced and the service was mediocre at best. Not what one would expect for a place with drinks in the order of $11 and up and smallish entrees in the price rage of $29 to $55. Too many other choices for me to go back or recommend to a friend.

Service was terrible, food was even worse. Truffle fries tasted store bought and the roasted vegetables were completely undercooked as if out of a frozen bag. Lobster bisque sat under a heat lamp for what seemed to be 20 minutes before being served. Would not go back for any occasion.

We went for Valentine’s Day. The restaurant was crowded but not over flowing with customers. It took forever to get drinks and it seemed like the food was sitting out for a while before it was brought out. The biggest issue with the restaurant is the parking. There are a few lots nearby, but nothing particularly close. It would be really nice if the restaurant offered valet parking to make it easier on the guests when the lots are full or reserved for an hotel event.

It's a good establishment to visit, particularly for special occasions & events. But, considering the small food portions, it's not a place that I would frequent often. I did appreciate the atmosphere and service.
