My dining experience at this restaurant on a Thursday evening was horrible. Food was cold, servers were having loud conversations…cursing at each other. But to top it off an employee who was off work was eating cherries out of the container at the bar with her BARE HANDS!!!

This was at the Baltimore location.

Waiter spent way too much time with table across from us (could it be that they were spending much more than us?)

We had a good dinner. Our waiter was personable. The music was very loud and it made co versatile a bit difficult.

Went on a Sunday evening in September. Sat outside which was lovely. Food was excellent, drinks were meh.... a little lack luster in flavor, no garnishes and took forever. Service was slow but our waitress Delaney was doing her best. I don't really think it was her fault that the bar and food were slow. The restaurant was not crowded at all so not sure what the issue was.

We chose to eat outdoors and it was quite pleasant. The view and weather were terrific. We could feel the energy of the city, yet from our vantage point it was serene. The food was artistically presented and looked too good to eat but we did. Everything was delicious. Best of all it was the perfect atmosphere for great conversation.

Out of half the menu items. Extremely poor service training. Twice they tried to get us to order desert while others were still eating entrees (and we weren’t there late). Didn’t remove dishes before serving next course. It’s been a very long time since I’ve had such an abysmal experience. It was horrid when you consider the high prices they charge. I use Opentable a lot and have never left a bad review so this was warranted.

It was a Sunday night, most places closed early, but we were able to get a table. The food was outstanding, the wait staff were friendly and helpful.We would definitely go again when in the area.

Our food was cool and and had to be returned and be reheated. It took a long time to receive the food and then having to return it. I understand there could be some problems however, the food should be hot. The waiter was very good he was understanding and he did it removed as quickly as he could to return the food and get it right back out to us. I’ve eaten there before and there was not a problem but that was a couple years ago. We were celebrating our anniversaries so. They were complaints about the pork chops being tough. We had a party of seven.

McCormick & Schmicks Seafood was wonderful. My boyfriend called them in advance and set up plans to have the staff help him propose to me. The chief brought out a fruit platter with the ring box in the middle. It was so wonderful

It’s was our anniversary. Our waitress seemed really busy which is fine but our food was cold and it took 20 minutes for our cheesecake to come out. Tables around us who would order at the same time got their stuff way faster. We noticed the service go down when a large party went in the back room. We just didn’t feel important anymore.

The food was excellent, high quality, perfect seasoning and cook. The service was outstanding. Our server Brittany was one of the best we've ever experienced anywhere in the world! From the start, she was very informative, took the time to listen and explain fully, made great suggestions and worked with us to make each meal perfect for each person. She was also a lot of fun, and that makes dining a truly outstanding and enjoyable experience.

I was greeted by the hostess asking where my mask was (DUH! I should’ve KNOWN better! I’m so mask conscious and I totally spaced out - I asked if they could give me one since I did see others receive one, but I got a cloth napkin). $32 for a piece of THIN swordfish … that was ridiculous. It’s as if they took a normal swordfish filet and made two out of them … but I only got one. Mashed potatoes were extra (because I subbed out something that was SURE to be more expensive than a spud, but whatever). They came to the table lukewarm. The best thing about my visit was my server, Julian, who had only been working there for two days - he was attentive (but not overly so, which was perfect), and very polite and friendly. That, and there was a lovely wedding taking place outdoors that I could watch.

Will I be back for dinner? Probably not. Way too pricy for what I got - but MAYBE for lunch.

Came to Baltimore for a Summer weekend for 4 based at the Inner Harbor. Had Sat lunch at Mc&S. Service was very good, restaurant was clean and views were nice, food was acceptable. Higher priced. We were glad to find something nice to relax and be out of the crowded common area of the Harbor. Thank you for great service.

My family enjoyed a FANTASTIC dinner. We celebrated a birthday and the meal was outstanding. Our server, Alicia, did an exceptional job. She made our experience SO special. I can’t say enough good things. So happy we dined at the restaurant. We talked about the meal when choosing our top fav memories from our family weekend getaway!!

Food was fine once it finally came but waiting over an hour to get a salad with chicken on it was ridiculous. And in the almost 2 hours we were there was very difficult to get drink refilled. I know there was a show at Pier 6 that night and restaurant was busy, but a good manager would staff up when a show is next door. Its called planning. And I know there are staff shortages everywhere since all the lazy people don't want to go back to work and just collect money from the government and not pay rent. Makes we not want to go to restaurants anymore since service is so horrible!

Service was fantastic, but …..
Water glasses and silverware were dirty, and tablecloth had stains. Food was ok… potatoes came cold, and fettuccine sauce had a strange sour taste to it. Fish tacos and calamari were very good as was the Baltimore crab cake!

It was a great experience, strong servers, helpful staff, friendly managers and friendly chef. Food came out as requested and hot. My entire family enjoyed themselves and were so full when we left, we decided to take the longer walk to the car. Thank you to the chef and the manager on duty for taking the time out and coming to see us at the table and check on us. It was definitely a pleasure and we will definitely be back. Great job on team work, over heard the server talking at service and how they need to do this and that so that it’s all set up for the next day and all. You definitely have a great addition to your team with the server we had. Thank you again.

Food quality was poor. Chicken was bland & “rubbery” and potatoes were like a blob of instant potatoes. Even my 19 yr old who loves potatoes couldn’t eat them. I suspect food was out of microwave. Ambience was very good with one of the best waterfront views. However, food needs to come up to at least average. Server was nice.

Loved this location and everything going on within. Our only complaint was that it took around 30 minutes to get our first drinks in hand. Once we had those, everything else fell into place. Phenomenal fresh seafood throughout every course.

I really enjoy going to the inner harbor to be by the water and dine at the restaurants. I use to visit this restaurant frequent but the food has dramatically falling off. I really only like the apple pie but can not see myself visiting the restaurant again just for the pie. The quality of the food needs to improve considering the cost has stayed the same or risen.
