As usual a very nice dining experience. Only drawback was, in an maybe 40% full/empty restaurant, they sat people right next to us, could get any closer

Had a reservation, showed up 5 minutes early and we were seated immediately. They put us in a quiet booth which was much appreciated. The service for the most part was good, just had to ask for water refill once & ask for a steak knife. We received an item we didn't order & they forgot to bring out 2 items we did order -- all were corrected immediately. Food was absolutely amazing!! We waited quite awhile for soup & salad, which made us nervous since we were headed to the theater afterwards. Once the soup & salad came everything was back on track. I give them credit as it was crazy busy & the staff were working hard to keep up with it all. Overall it was a great experience & I'm sure we will return!

We waited at least an hour for the order and took another half an hour before we get our meal. We didn’t get our drink until dessert comes. They didn’t charge us for the drinks but who wants to drink a glass of sparkling wine with your cheese cake?
We’ve been here before and we loved their food and service and that’s why we were back for Christmas…but it was a little disappointment.

It was a very good experience. We were seated immediately. The service was a little slow, but it was Christmas Day and they may have been a little short handed. I would recommend. The food was good and the servings were huge.

Everything was very good as expected. However, there lack of staff to assist removal of food dishes, etc was below average. A six top table next to us had 6 empty beer bottles and only 3 people were drinking beer. It looked like a saloon. Our used appetizer plates remained with us throughout the meal and up until we received the check. Again, better attention was needed.

Excellent steak and seafood restaurant conveniently located near theaters and shopping on State Street and Michigan Ave. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection where it melted in your mouth. The scallops and lobster tail were the best I've ever had. The food and drink is pricy but definitely worth it. The restaurant was somewhat noisy but the staff were friendly and the restaurant was clean, upscale, and beautifully decorated. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be returning soon.

I eat at McCormick and Schmicks in Kansas City often. That was the reason I suggested to my friend that we eat there while in Chicago. We were both extremely disapointed in our steaks. They were very dry even a little crispy on the outside edges. I am used to my steak being juicy and cooked to perfection which was definately not the case here. We did not have new steaks prepared due to the fact we were attending a show at the Chicago Theatre and would not have had the time to wait on another to be prepared. Would most likely not take a chance on eating there again while in Chicago. Everything else was fine.

The food and service was ok. I got the fried shrimp and my husband got the twin North Atlantic lobster tails. We also got the calamari appetizer, which wasn’t good at all! The drinks were good though. I got the Raspberry mule and my husband got the M&S iced tea there were delicious. Dessert was ok too we got the cheesecake, very basic nothing special. With that being said I do not think I’ll be dining here again.

Quite frankly, this was the worst dining experience my fiance and I have ever had. We were not greeted when walking in the door although many people walked past, it took 10 minutes for our server to even come to our table and took even longer to get our drinks. Our soup came out cold and our steak was well done although ordered medium. That problem was corrected, but we never received our last drink that we ordered. Although it was taken off of our bill, a manager never spoke to us about our experience even though they were aware of the situation. We went in with high expectations given how long this restaurant has been a Chicago staple. We will be very hesitant to give this place a second chance.

The lobster bisque was excellent with chunks of lobster. The entrees of stuffed salmon and seared tuna as well as the cheesecake were excellent. However the appetizer of Baked Scallop Gratin was poor. It was overcooked, there was no sauce and the scallops were the smallest I have ever seen - maybe they were even cut in half. They were served on shells to make it look fancy.
