Great service. Food was delicious. No complaints whatsoever. Other than price, don’t understand why this restaurant isn’t packed! Will definitely visit again.

We had a great date there. We tried a couple of new things for us (Tuna Tartare and Chocolate Bag). Both were excellent. Also had the bone-in strip. Also had great flavor. Our table provided some much appreciated privacy even though the restaurant was not crowded at all.

We had another good experience at M&S this past Saturday night. We are from out of state but come to Charlotte several times a year. We usually get one evening meal at M&S. We have always had excellent meals and very good service. We also like the ambiance.

I didn't give the service the highest rating because our initial server was good, but not outstanding. I have come to expect "outstanding" there. Fortunately, the manager, Melissa, dropped by our table to see how everything was going. I told we were enjoying ourselves and loved the meals but mentioned that my glass of water was almost empty and that I had considered getting another glass of wine, but the server never asked. She responded quickly and apologized but did more than that. She became our server for the balance of the meal and also gave us a complimentary dessert. I didn't think that was necessary at all, but it was a good indication of how to extend the best customer service.

I continue to be pleased with M&S and will continue our visits there.

There is a lot of construction going on around the restaurant, but the sound did not get inside. Our server was friendly, helpful, and efficient. The food is great. We ordered off the "Sunset Menu" and were surprised when the portions were normal sized, making it a very good value. The pan seared swordfish on a bed of jalapeno grits was delicious! We will definitely dine here again when we are in Charlotte.

Great food & service! Michael our server was exceptional working thru my wife gluten diet constraints. Everyone should request Michael. Melissa the manager is always helpful and very considerate given crowd & staffing constraints. Everyone always makes our visits special : birthday, anniversary or just a visit. Chef is exceptional as is the menu. A must for everyone.

We think McCormick and Schmick's at Southpark has really gone downhill. The restaurant was half empty as it usually is when we frequent it. I think this was our last visit.

The oyster appetizer was good. The only two fish they had that were wild caught were Mahi Mahi and Sea Bass. Our guest ate the the farm raised bourbon salmon, which was was the size of the one of those McDonald's hash brown patties, and about that thick--a super thin tail portion. Measly amount of salmon for $28. Sauteed spinach was only passable. My husband got the Sea Bass and asked that it just be grilled (not pan suateed in butter) and it was over cooked. The side on his plate was an orzo vegetable salad which was only OK. His dish was $42. Best thing of the night was a lovely waitress named Beth. She did a great job!

Well we can start by the bar area - the person on the bar was new on a Friday night and didn’t know how to make their signature drink but no one told me for 20 minutes. Then the food - the apps came out ok but they were simple - raw oysters and fried calamari - the dinner was awful. All of the food was cold or undercooked. One of the lobster tails was a black and that’s not the shell it was the meat! One ordered stuff shrimp and the shrimp or literally the ones that were like 40 to a pound no bigger than a quarter and she only got 4. They did bring out two more when they realized how ridiculous it was. My niece ordered the stuffed salmon. And it was cold and the potatoes where a pile of Ice Cold potatoes in a hard lump. We paid nearly 400 for us with one meal comped. It was horrendous. She said they stole the chef from the uptown location ... I think they gave him away?! This is my opinion.

We enjoyed the personalized touch of our names printed on the souvenir menus, the greeting from the manager on duty, etc. My filet was fork tender and cooked to perfection. My wife's scallops were prepared perfectly and attractively presented. We love the "private" booths along the back wall of this McCormick it felt very special to be seated in one of these to celebrate our birthdays.

The service was excellent as was the food. Actually, I left my phone on the seat and was able to come back after hours to retrieve it. Our Server was excellent and the person who answered the phone after closing was much appreciated as well.

We arrived at 10 pm for the last reservation. They still treated us as if it was 6 pm, no rush or pressure. Exceptional service and our waitress was very polite and funny. Even the cleaning staff didn't rush us to leave and thanked us for joining. I love this location over the one uptown.

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.
