I honestly did not get to eat there because they advised the veteran meal was on November 11th not the 12th. Somewhat I guess my error but an employee of the restaurant at another location had advised one could book the reservation on the 11th or 12th I thought or the Military Veteran meal on Veterans Day. So I did not get to enjoy the meal for me and my spouse. However I have had there food in my lifetime so have enjoyed it in the past. So my positive review is based off past experience. : )

From the moment you walk in the door from the hostesses to the servers you feel welcomed even through your dining experience.

Consistency at McCormicks never changes and I love it that’s why we return.

Restaurant was understaffed for a Sunday lunch experience. The Mahi Mahi was dry and the steak medallions portion was small. Overall presentation was poor as if chefs were just pounding out the food to fill the orders

Service was really bad. Young guy who was obviously not trained well (i am not blaming him), had no idea about wine, could not carry the empty plates properly (silverware felt down etc.) ]. Food was cold for one of my guests, steak looked and tasted like old rubber. Didn't order mash but had it on the plate, vegetable was overcooked.......

The only good thing was the wine we had!
Overall a real bad experience for almost $300. Will def. not come back or recommend this place anymore. There are much better options for less in Charlotte.

We made a reservation online ( which was quick a simple) we arrived and were seated at the selected time. I menu had many options and we had a party of 5. The wait was short and the waiter was attentive. I personally ate steak and double tail lobster. The steak was on my top 3 for juicest steak ever. The atmosphere was very relaxing and pricing was reasonable for the food options. We would ear there again.

This restaurant was terrible. The fish was $38 and hard as a brick. The bouillabaisse was also $38 was horrible and the shellfish was mostly empty shells. The chef is terrible. Cobia is a white flaky fish not a hard yellow over cooked brick. The food was inedible but I didnt want to send it back and get spit in my food. Do not go here. I wasted $140 and went to eat tapas across the street the street when we left.

There was some foreign paper/plastic object in my food. We were offered complimentary dessert but we declined. The server was spacey and unknowledgeable of menu/serving options.

Still paid full price for my meals and left a tip. Won’t be returning here. I’ll go to the South Park location if I want M&S which I don’t expect to crave for quite a while.

Had a reservation for 6 and got seated at a table for 5...kept having to ask for silverware and glassware and squeeze in another chair. A little disappointing for the level of restaurant this is supposed to be.

Had to send a steak back and salmon was undercooked. Just not what I expected.

My wife and I recently celebrated our wedding anniversary with McCormick & Schmik's. Their staff went out of their way to make our evening enjoyable and memorable, even with a 'personalized menu'. Coupled along with the food we ordered was over the top, I would definitely recommend them, especially for a special occasion.

Service was rather “matter of fact.” Wives food was good according to her. I had basic fish and chips. The breading on the fish was not good. Actual fish had a strange taste. Ate fish but scrapped all the bread. Did not elevate to mgt as I figured I had no plans to return

While attending a conference in Charlotte, our group of three couples dined at McCormick and Schmick’s. Excellent service. Great food. Decent surroundings. In all, what’s not to like. Lot’s of reviews for this location complained about bad service and less than great food. Not our case, with terrific service and excellent food.

Did not like the menu changes. The person that writes about "open tables" keeps responding we did not meet our reservation. We were there. We did tell the hostess and I don't appreciate constantly writing and this person constantly puts it on me the customer to figure out the incompetence of the host not having as a show. Not my issue!
