Delicious food and good size portions. Good size meaning there was room for dessert which was amazing and usually one of our favorite parts of dining here. We will definitely be back again!

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.

We love this place, we are Landry select card holders so we go as often as we can. My only complaint about or visit was we were given a $100 gift card for Christmas as a gift, they gave us the $20 bonus card too! We had $50 in points to use towards our check on Friday. The balance of what we owed came to $11.50 (approx) and we used our $20 bonus card to pay the balance. the server returned the check book and we tipped her $20 cash. We never received the $20 gift card back with presumably $8 (approx) balance. I assume the rules are , if you don't use the entire $20 you lose the balance, that's all good and fine but they could have at least told us so we could have had the option of paying either with a credit card or our $100 gift card. It was kind of rude and we were too embarrassed to question it. We will return but you know, a little bit of communication goes a long way.

This was a work celebration w/ 11 people. Our waiter handled the group flawlessly! Food was good...Apps. were great, and most people really liked their entre. I had the stuffed salmon and it was overcooked, but still a very good flavor.

We might have been loud for any adjacent tables, but the restaurant was fairly empty so options were available.

Overall was very good!

The best experience since they opened in ‘98. Why?
- The GM visited twice, both times making my granddaughter, 5, feel special.
- The server, Randy, ensured the pacing of the four courses was spot on. He made sure everything about the dining experience was perfect. He also made my granddaughter feel special.
- Chef Ritchie visited our table. He made my granddaughter feel special and told her anytime she visited to let him know she was there.
This level of customer appreciation is phenomenal. Clearly it is a reflection of the new GM’s leadership. Well done!
Of course we’ll return.

Ok food, but higher expectations given the prices and rep of M&S. Service was very nice, but doesnt make up for "Red Lobster food" at M&S prices..

It was my daughters BD. They had reserved a table as VIP and the menu had happy birthday notes across the top. The waitress was excellent and extremely knowledgeable of the bar and menu items. I had requested a "quiet" Birthday dessert.... And she did. My daughter was blown over and so was I. P. S. daughter made 48yrs.old. Great experience all around.

Food was good, portions were small. Went there for a birthday and told them on open table and in person. Tried to order the Smith Island Cake for my boyfriend.....they were out of Smith Island cake, and did not do anything special instead. Not even a candle in whipped cream. That was disappointing, considering it was a $200 dinner for 2 people. They have a gluten free menu, but our waiter Ryan W. was not knowledgeable about what gluten really was and the staff thought rice had gluten in it. I wouldn't go there again. I've had better experiences at seafood restaurants that weren't chains.

We hadn't been to McCormick and Schmicks' in quite a long time and it was a pleasant experience from the moment we entered until we departed. All of the staff were very friendly and accommodating as well as being attentive without being overly attentive. The food was timed and delivered appropriately and served hot and fresh. Our server, Jen, was delightful. We will go back!

Ordered crab cake and filet. Filet was barely warm and crab cake was not good. Server said it would come with seasonal vegetables and brought asparagus instead because they were "out" of seasonal vegetables. We clearly did not like our food and wasted our money at $195.00. No efforts to solve our problem.

Server was not great and it was a bad experience. Will go to Ruth's Chris next time which is next door.
