Disappointing...
Although the staff was friendly, attentive and the wine suggestion was good, the noise level was way too high (overhead music) to "chat" or relax.
The Oysters Rockefeller were absolutely wonderful but "oysters on the half shell" were VERY small and disgraceful! The ahi tuna was over "crusted" and the swordfish was very dry.
There are too many wonderful restaurants to eat at Uptown. We will not be back.

Perfect date night before the theater. Service was excellent and food delicious. I recommend the lobster bisque.

My wife is going to have a bone marrow biopsy this Thursday. Today was a day to relax and breathe before having the test.

Colton, our server made My wife and I feel special. My wife was able to relax and take her mind off the test.

We are so appreciative of the memorable experience provided be the staff and host!

Thank you!

Our experience was quite average. We had a nice waiter, the wine was reasonably priced. The food was adequate. I had sea bass pan seared and found it a bit on the over-seasoned side. The roasted root vegetables consisted of three tiny carrots, a half of a fingerling potato and a half of a turnip (sad and overcooked at that). The jumbo shrimp cocktail was a nice portion but the shrimp were rather bland and tough. LOVED the ahi tuna appetizer - that was excellent. Partner had that blackened wahoo and also really enjoyed it. Ultimately, we probably won't be back as the $150 we spent on the meal didn't really feel like a good purchase.

We had an enjoyable time for dinner.
Soup and steak was so nice, moreover a selected red wine was perfect.
Service was well-organized and the atomsphere of the restaurant was cozy and cool.

Food was excellent and service was excellent as well. Our server, Tara, knew we were going to s play and expedited our experience perfectly. Jenna, the manager, was personable and friendly, and even helped me navigate as a member of the Landry Club. Wonderful experience.

My husband & I had a lovely early dinner here on a Monday evening before an event uptown. We have not been to McCormick and Schmick’s in years and were pleasantly surprised on how wonderful it was. From the time we walked in the door, Eddie the host was friendly and welcoming. Levi, our server was outstanding. He explained everything to our satisfaction and gave us the perfect balance of attention and privacy. Our meal was delicious. We will be back!

My fiancé and I have been here several times, this by far was our best experience! The food was EXCEPTIONAL!!! From the presentation to the taste and temperature...it was ALL superb! My salmon was moist and flavorful and asparagus cooked to just the desired crispness that I love! From the hostess to our server Nick the hospitality was impeccable! Whatever you’re doing at McCormick and Schmick’s continue doing it! We will be returning very soon. You are now my favorite seafood restaurant. WELL DONE!!!

Waited nearly 30 minutes even though we had a reservation. Seated at the very back of the restaurant. Neighboring table had a very loud party. Quality / flavor of the food (ribeye steak) was disappointing. Valet parked my car and had to go get my own vehicle from the garage at the end of the evening.

I was really looking forward to dinner during Charlotte's Queen Feast Restaurant week, but was disappointed. There was no special menu or pricing provided to us, which was the point of going during that time. Paid full price off of standard menu. Host/Hostess reception appeared hectic and unorganized - not professional for an upscale establishment. Also, steak was served super rare, and asked for medium rare, had to send back and was then over - cooked to medium-well when they brought it back. Room we were in way super loud - felt like I was screaming to my dinner date, they were out of ice on a 96° day, and service on the slower side. Side dishes were nothing special either. For the dollar, I would not recommend and given more consistent experience at Ruths' Chris, right next door, I would go there, where I have always had great quality and service.

So noisy you can't talk to the person you are dining with. The ambiance doesn't match the price level .

I visited for the first time during Queens Feast week. I enjoyed this place far better than the BLT Steak I went to next night . Deviled eggs were fantastic....how do you make deviled eggs tasted that freaking good?

Came for restaurant week and ordered the beef medallions, there were four, very small medallions that were only average at best. Very disappointed with the amount of food for the price.

I have dined here many times, but this time the experience was awful. My salad tasted like they had collected grass and weeds from the lawn, the mashed potatoes were bland, the spinach had no taste. The wahoo was tough. The moscato was good, the bourbon salmon was good, the bread pudding awas tasty. For 130 dollars, I expect more! Server (Samantha) was not well versed on food selections. She described Wahoo as a white flaky fish, which I found not the case. My sister asked for a white wine spritzer and she said they did not have them.
We will think twice before returning.

Our entrees were bad and terrible. Steak medallions were dry and over cooked. Halibut was tasteless, stringy and overcooled. Orzo dish had no seasoning and processed vegetables that came straight from a bag of frozen vegetables. We kept saying the chef must have quit. At least they comped the meal.
