Excellent service to a great relaxing lunch. Salmon with bok choy, and saute spinach was very tasty and well presented. Good wine selection at reasonable prices. Give it a try.

An appetizer of calamari had more fried carrots than calamari. The stuffed shrimp main was a small portion, the blackened grouper was a small filet that had a streak of backbone meat that should have been removed, and the sea bass (a very nice filet) was over-salted. The fish and hips was the best entrée of the four. Experience at the uptown location has typically been better.

We enjoyed the upscale ambiance the restaurant created, we really enjoyed the cocktail presentation done at our table, the taste of food was great, but the proportions were a little small. Overall, a great experience...we are definitely return customers and would recommend this restaurant to anyone who would enjoy fine dining!

It was our first time dining here on Saturday, and we'll definitely be back. We took advantage of the Charlotte Restaurant Week menu and had deviled eggs, salmon, peanut butter pie and apple pie. Aside from the unremarkable (and very cold) deviled eggs, the food was great. And our server (I forgot her name) was excellent.

This is a go to for seafood and good service at a reasonable price. They also have a great wine list and do seasonal cocktails well. Shrimp kisses are my favorite appetizer, and the rye chocolate fashioned is a new favorite. If you like an old fashioned, you’ll love it!
I introduced my parents and little sister to this place tonight. They loved it! My parents already said they would be back soon.
Well done!

In the spirit of full disclosure, we ate at McCormick and Schmick's Southpark during restaurant week and requested items from the $35 menu. At that low price, we didn't expect the high-end quality but we were disappointed in the main course. The meat was just OK but the "hash" on which the small pieces of meat were placed was not worthy of their typical fare. I believe it included potatoes and brussel sprouts. The texture was not appetizing and I would not order this again. However, the apple pie/icecream dessert was very good!

The service was great and the server very attentive. What I would say is that we went with the Queen City mente and the table next to me from the a la cart menu. It appeared we ordered the same thing but the portion, look, and presentation was completely different. Almost like I received the leftovers. My wife ordered the sea scallops and they were undercooked. We did not complain and simply paid our bill. Desserts were great but the appetizer tasted like they poured a full container of salt on it.

Food was excellent. Service was excellent. This is a top shelf operation. First course serving size was perhaps a little on the smaller side but not unlike what you would expect in most nice restaurants. All things considered it’s a really nice restaurant and well worth the price.

Everything was great; the food, the service, etc. However the booth felt too close to the table. Looking around the restaurant, it appeared to be all the booths & not just ours. I don’t recall feeling crowded like that before when sitting at a booth.

I so much want to like this place but the food is just awful. It’s very disappointing because I remember it being quite good years ago when it first opened. My fish was undercooked (Seemed frozen in the middle) and very tough. They did the right thing and took it off my bill but I still won’t go back because it’s just not worth paying fine dining prices for mediocre food. Even the side item seemed prepackaged and was very salty. This place occupies a primo location and the ambiance is great, but nothing can overcome the poor food quality.

Great place for lunch. Excellent lunch menu with lunch portions and prices. Meals were excellent and service was even better. One note this location advertised approximately 8 brunch items, but they were not on the menu. A table near us inquired and were told they only serve brunch on holidays. They need to correct online menu to reflect this.

We celebrated our 1st Anniversary. We had a wonderful server, Aleeza. She was pleasant and funny and made our special occasion top notch. We received a copy of the menu with “Happy 1st Anniversary” printed at the top as well as a small complimentary dessert. They really made us feel special and Aleeza was very attentive. We would definitely go back.

The best part of this is that it was pretty much free - $200 worth of gift cards took care of 95% of the bill. Otherwise... meh.

Shrimp wrapped in bacon was excellent, shrimp cocktail decent. My surf and turf was passable, although the steak felt as if it was a cheap cut of meat that had gone through a tenderizer rather than the filet it was supposed to be. My wife throughly enjoyed her scallops. Which I was surprised by, because she’d ordered the scallops. But we began to feel our server wasn’t completely switched on, and being a scallops fan, she dealt with it. Manager tried to apologize, sent out a crab cake, which was passable. Ordered dessert, it didn’t show up. Manager asked if we’d like dessert. We said we’d ordered already. She told us they were out of what we’d ordered. Would we like something else? White chocolate mousse tasted excellent, but a texture a little odd and showed up nearly 45 minutes after we’d first ordered a dessert. And the “specialty cocktails”... left a little to be desired. Bulleit old fashioned must have been sitting on the bar for a while as it was watered down, the gin/blueberry/basil concoction tasted like berry chewing gum and the Kentucky smash must have been conceived by someone who hadn’t tasted it. We won’t be going back. Unless we get another gift card and then it’ll be for happy hour.

We have gone to McCormick and Schmick's for our anniversary for about the last 5 years. The food is always tremendous and the wait staff is friendly and prompt. The steak was one of the best I have ever had. My wife's meal was just as she wished it to be! Could not ask for a better place to celebrate!

I would absolutely recommend and return. The Staff and waitresses were both welcoming and professional. We were out celebrating my Son's 16th Birthday and he enjoyed the atmosphere, company, food and most importantly customer service.
