The service was incredibly slow. Drink orders took 20 minutes. Food was served 90 minutes after seating. The waiter was apologetic.m, but that didn’t change anything. The icing on the cake was that our bill was $140 more than it should have been...other diners orders were charged to us. Parties arriving after us were served and exited before us. Portions were small and vegetables were cold and orders were wrong.

It was a Sunday evening but in downtown Charlotte following a panthers football game I would have expected the staffing to be appropriate.

We will not return.

The food was pretty good but the overall service game was lacking. I felt like I was at an Applebees that was trying to pretend to be fancy. While the food is decent, the price doesn't match the delivery. No real screw ups...just not the caliber of staff and service you would expect in that price range.

For a moderately priced restaurant, my expectation would be good food. Service was pleasant and responsive. The food, a blackened chicken pasta was dry-both the chicken and the pasta was rubbery. My server brought extra sauce but it didn’t help so I pushed it around on the plate until the meal ended.

Service was horrible. I had to ask 3 times for Splenda. No ice was offered with my tea refill. My son ordered another Bloody Mary that never came. Dishes were not cleared when we finished eating for a long time. Once ordered our mail dishes were VERY SLOW to arrive and the restaurant was not busy with lots of people. We had to ask for the bill and our waiter hardly checked on us for drinks at all.

Food was wonderful but service was awful!

Food was good. We felt the server was not interested in working that night. She was not attentive and had us do some of her duties. We were not presented with any nightly specials and we had to coach her to take orders and so forth. She was nice. A bit of retraining might be in order.

Management was helpful.

Very disappointing experience. We were promptly seated but that was the only thing that went right. My wife and I each ordered a glass of wine but our server took more than 10 minutes to get them to our table. He finally came by to fill our water glasses but never came back to refill our water. I requested a 2nd glass of wine but our server completely forgot about it, except to add it to my bill. He disappeared for long periods; very poor quality of service. We waited more than an hour for our food to come out. My wife order the scallops and said they were good. I ordered the ahi tuna and was terribly disappointed. It couldn’t have been more than a 2 ounce portion. Our waiter never returned to the table after our entrees were delivered so I had my entire meal with no wine and an empty water glass - our waiter was nowhere to be seen. We finally flagged him down and asked him to get our bill because we were trying get to a concert at Knight Theater. He did remove one of our appetizers but that was too little. The whole experience took nearly 2 hours for what should have been no longer than 45 minutes. I won’t be returning to this location.

I wish I had just poked out my eye and used the money spent in this place at the ER. Bad food, not fine dining in any shape or form. What happened to a good selection of fresh fish on the menu? Evidently, it died along with the business.

We arrived on time for our reservation and were promptly seated. However, 17 minutes passed before our waitress showed up to take our drink order. Both mine, and my son's, dinner orders were incorrect. My salmon tasted like it had been sitting in a freezer for quite some time before landing on my plate. Besides the lackluster food and poor service, the location and valet service are great.

This was my first visit to McCormick and Schmidt. I found that it exceeded my expectations. The staff was courteous, engaging and attentive without being overbearing. The food was amazing -- both in presentation and taste. Spanish coffee -- awesome! I'm hoping to return after work for either a Spanish coffee or cocktail with hors-d'oeuvres.

The Greeter didn't seem to know what was going on because it was never communicated to our Server that is was my wife and my friend's wife's birthday. Then we received a notice from Open Table that we missed our appointment. Other than that confusion, the rest of the night went perfectly. Sydney had a great smile, pleasant service and amazing energy. She is a Keeper!!!

Having eaten at other locations of this chain and enjoying the experience, what a surprise we had. Maybe we should have heeded a virtually empty restaurant on a Friday evening. Service was average especially considering the place was empty. Food was average at best. My wife’s Mahi Mahi was tasteless and my scallops were somewhat chewy and not much taste. What really destroyed any hope for a nice dinner was the disco music blaring the whole evening. Not appropriate dinner music and certainly not conducive to conversation with friends. A whole forgettable experience and my last time eating at this chain.

Mixed review. Service was good. Our waitress was nice and attentive. Nice place except the bathroom was kind of old and outdated. Like a bathroom youd expect at a sports bar. Food was pretty good. Crab cake was excellent. Both me and my wife wife ordered shrimp and none of it was de-veined. Kind of dissapointing for an upper scale restaurant. Salmon was good as was the asparagus. Overall we enjoyed and would probably go back but would be choosey about what we ordered. Some things were really good, others just ok. For the price I think we expected a little more.

We did a working business lunch with a Client. We had a large group which is never a problem at McCormick and Schmick's Seafood.

Excellent food, great staff & service. This is a great, upscale restaurant in uptown Charlotte.

McCormick and Schmick's Seafood is always a hit with Clients and family.

I made an online reservation for my moms Birthday Celebration, which I wrote out letting the restaurant know the ocassion. When I called the restaurant to let them know we were running a few minutes late, I reminded them of my mom's birthday celebration and asked for a quiet table since my parents are very elderly. The hostess/reception did not acknowledge my mom nor the celebration.

The table was not bad, but having dined there often we know the booths in the back with the curtains would've been much more appropriate.

Service as a whole in Charlotte is pretty poor, but our server was well below charlottes' standard. In addition, we were consistently trying to be sold up. Manners were poor and overall service the same.

So my family and business has seen the last of McCormick and Shmicks.

everything started off awesome, the shrimp appetiser we had (wrapped in bacon) was amazing. I thought the salad was ok but not excellent.

I was a bit disappointed with the seafood trio. The shrimp was very small in size - for this place I would have preferred two instead of three shrimp but larger and not over cooked. Same with the stuffed shrimp, would have preferred one larger one cooked appropriately over two small shrimp. The salmon was dry as well. The spinach i asked for in lieu of mashed potatoes was sooooo salty, it needs to be toned down a bit. Because this was a business dinner with a client, I didn’t complain about my food.

Unfortunately our waiter was just not really attentive at all. Our water was never refilled, he was unsure of himself, and mixed up our after dinner drinks.
We ordered the chocolate bag for dessert after the waiter’s urging, and trust me this thing is huge. It is easily enough for four to nibble on, but awkward to eat as a group. Photo is below.

This experience wasn’t the greatest at the location. We have been to a another location before and the service and attention to us as guest and detail was absolutely amazing.
I decided to book a reservation online instead of over the phone. I figured it would be easier and I could have my request met. It was a special occasion for my wife’s birthday. I requested to have a little place card at the table with a note Happy Birthday on it. ( I have requested this before and it was done without a problem ) .
Second was our waitress. She was upbeat and informative. However she was more interested in talking to other servers in the back rather then making sure we had what we needed in a timely manner . We requested to have a virgin Strawberry Daiquiri, ( my wife’s favorite on her birthday) however they were unable to make it due to not having a blender working. So we decided to have a lemonade instead. ( it didn’t taste very good, and had no sugar along the outside )
Last was dessert, my wife ordered some chocolate cake I believe , or chocolate pie. When the waitress returned with it , I ask for a candle , and if it could be lit. The waitress wasn’t sure why I was asking for a candle, then she ask if it was a special occasion??
( the communication was not transferred to her) my wife felt embarrassed I had to ask for a candle as well as I. Once we were done eating, the check to about 10 min while the waitress was in the back. After I received my check I also noticed my points weren’t added on my bill. I didn’t want to wait any longer. Overall it wasn’t the greatest experience, and especially for a special occasion.

Food and drinks were delicious. Our only disappointment was that our server promised we wouldn’t be served the entrees too soon if we ordered at the same time as ordering our appetizers. Instead we were hardly halfway through the appetizers when the entrees all arrived. She told the manager, and he came and offered to make it up to us, such as warming up the appetizer for us. But there we were with food all over the table. We stopped eating the appetizer and started the entrees. We never got back to the appetizer. It would have been nice to have a leisurely cocktail and appetizer instead of being rushed. We wouldn’t have enjoyed the appetizer at that point, even if it had been reheated. The server was lovely, helpful and apologetic.
