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!

We’ve come here a lot, and for a restaurant at this level, we expect a certain level of service. Unfortunately we did not receive that today. We sat for an hour before receiving our food, and the level of service and care, along with the food was not quality.

Overall, I enjoyed my yearly trip to M&S. Our waiter seemed very distracted, but did keep our cups filled. Unfortunately, it took nearly 20 mins to get our check picked up after I put my card in the booklet.

The steak was perfectly cooked, but some of my carrots were burnt while others were undercooked. My son’s pasta was perfect and we appreciated them leaving the sauce off. The manager Melissa was wonderful and brought my son a cup of ice cream for dessert. I had the chocolate bag as always, but it had issues. The bag itself was perfect, the best I’ve had to date. The fruit, excellent. However, the mousse was much thicker than it should have been.

In the end, we’ll be back next year. Cheers!

But I wouldn't recommend the fish-n-chips. Ho-hum fish, scant tartar sauce, and limpish fries.
I love McC & S...just not this dish.
Aleeza as always was the splendid server and Melissa the always-helpful, attentive manager.

Everyone was super nice and pleasant. My friends went to the Uptown location instead of the Southpark location. They were kind enough to hold our reservation until they were able to get to the correct place. Our waitress was in training, so I thought it would be a mess. However, she was awesome and she had the trainer with her the entire time to make sure everything was correct. My friends and I had a wonderful night out celebrating one's birthday. Thank you!

The seafood trio was amazing and cooked perfectly also ordered the Chocolate bag but it was underwhelming. Chocolate could have been better and the mouse was heavy and a bit grainy. I also wish they had the full menu on mothers day. They had a select menu which the food we wanted to order wasn't a part of. Otherwise I enjoyed our experience and will return hopefully to order what I originally intended.

Unfortunately this was a terrible disappointment for Mother's Day. One of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. Food took 1 hour and 15 minutes, Food came cold, One entre wasn't even what our Mother of all people, ordered- she ate it anyway because the wait was ridiculous. The Manager was terrible with a bad attitude and was unapologetic. She made the whole experience even worse than it was already. We even had to sit and negotiate how we would resolve it. Totally embarrassing, unprofessional, and frankly beyond unacceptable. I will NEVER go back.
