    The manager came by a couple of times to thank us for dining there. Unfortunately, the food was mediocre - at best. Nothing special - the redfish was overcooked and didn’t come out with the lump crab as described on the menu. I asked for it after I realized I didn’t accompany it and was told it was it because Ordered it grilled - not sure why that made a difference. Green beans lacked flavor and way too crunchy for my liking. I remember now why I stopped coming here.

    In Chicago for a family wedding. Our family wanted to dine together before things became too busy. We were a party of 11 and received outstanding service from our 2 servers. The food and wine were very good making for a perfect night.

    The add on lobster tail was smaller than I expected, the lobster mashed potatoes were enough for 2, but not very hot at all. The snapper gnocchi was a good entree.

    The service was absolutely awful. I do not believe the woman serving our section had ever been a server before, and it was extremely obvious. We had only eaten oysters, which is known to be an appetizer, an hour and a half past our reservation. She would constantly walk right past us and make eye contact but not stop for anything nor clear off dirty plates a refill glasses.

    Although Our server was approachable, warm and attentive, the food was less than we expected. We tried the oyster Rockefeller and the recipe was disappointing. Instead of topping the oyster Rockefeller with cheese it was topped with béarnaise sauce, which took away from the oyster Rockefeller flare. The “truffle fries” were nothing more than just plain fries with a few sprinkles of parm. Nothing “truffle” about it. The restaurant was extremely dark. The decor was drab. My wife usually takes Home her leftovers, but she did not want to after having the skillet red fish. The food was mediocre which makes it over priced. The best part of our experience were the deserts (crème brûlée and the chocolate bag) and the service. Overall, We would not likely return.

    This restaurant is great to celebrate special occasions. I was here to try their new year eve tree course prix meal. The clam chowder soup was okay. The steak was well cooked with mashed potatoes. The apple crumble a la mode was quite delicious.

    We've been to this location a few times, and it seems to us that it's not as good as it used to be. The food was okay, not great, though that could have been our selections. We didn't have seafood, which the restaurant does really well. Our server was sweet and friendly. She struggled to get our drink orders from the bar - said it was really busy, which says to me the bar may have been short-staffed. We were also sat right by the station where the servers enter orders, near the hallway to the bathroom, so it was loud and busy by our table. Overall the experience was okay, not amazing. We'll still come back and would still recommend it, especially for a pre-theatre meal.

    Food and ambience were excellent, but our server -Jonah - was outstanding! He was super attentive to my wife, who uses a cane, and he worked to ensure that our service left us plenty of time to get to the Chicago Theater afterwards. We enjoyed the braised scallops and sole almondine very much; lobster bisque was especially good.

    We were seated at the appropriate time, but no one served us, or even acknowledged us for 10 minutes and it went downhill from there. Our server, when finally acknowledged just said she had eight tables to serve.

    Beware! Very very slow. You will need a reservation at least two hours before a local show. Some food served just heat lamp warm, so it clearly sat for a while. Ended up eating our entree as fast as possible when served at 6:45. (1 hr 20 min after seating).

    Only real issue was the hostess. She tried to give us a table by the bussing station and we asked for something else. She was very rude and started to argue. Asked for the manager who offered us another table and she proceeded to argue with him about accommodating us. As we walked away, she started to very loudly bad mouth us to other employees. If we did not have theater tickets and had time to go elsewhere, we would have left.

Well, I am glad we visited McCormick & Schmick It was every bit of amazing. Our server was amazing, Jonathan (I think) and recommended the stuffed salmon which was so delicious. We will be back!

    We took my sister and husband, in from Florida, for a Christmas Dinner. Had reservations at 5:00pm. When we sat down it was very warm. Management soon after turned the temp down. Waitress was Tee, who was very good. We had the option of ordering the Pre-Fix or off the menu. Food was good. My wife order a specific glass on wine and it did not taste all that well. The Manager opened a new bottle and that had a better taste.

    Our waitress did not bring us bread nor water without having to ask her but she did for other tables. My wife’s clam chowder did not taste good to her. Her Raspberry mule was delicious according to her. My food(lobster tail with shrimp, asparagus and roasted potatoes) and drink(sangria) was great. The best item of the night I had was the apple pie though. Overall had the waitress been more attentive we’d rated a 5/5 stars.

    Our waitress was friendly and offered assistance when we were unsure what to order. My only concern was when we requested a booth, we were informed that a booth must be requested when making the reservation. It wasn't very pleasant to hear, considering we had an early dinner reservation and plenty of empty booths were available.

    Everyone in our party of 6 enjoyed the food and drinks we ordered, the service was very good without being overly attentive, and it was the right amount of busy to allow us to talk and enjoy each other’s company. The experience was very good but not outstanding. We would return again for the steaks, fresh seafood and light pink cosmopolitans!

    I wanted to really love this place but it fell short in a few areas. First, the ambience is not very nice...there are these large machines situated at all areas throughout the restaurant (unsure if they are temporary heaters, air filtration systems or what) but they are very unsightly for such an upscale restaurant. No explanation was given - perhaps placards on each table to explain would do the trick...not a big deal but I do have higher expectations in terms of the environment when dining in such a restaurant. Next, the service was a bit lackluster. My dining companion wanted to make some minor substitutions (changing out mashed potatoes for rice) and the server said they can only change out a starch dish for another starch dish. When I pointed out that rice was a starch, she got defensive and said there might be an upcharge but that she would check (she came back to confirm that there would be no upcharge...duh). The food was delicious, especially the calamari - which was a surprisingly huge portion. My steak was perfectly cooked and seasoned. That said, when going to a restaurant such as this, my expectations in terms of service delivery and environment are higher than going to a fast food restaurant...I'm not an overly picky person but these issues really need to be addressed. There are far too many other Chicago restaurants at this level for M&S to become complacent.

    Lost reservation, never served appetizer, tried to deliver soup after main course, main course cold, found hair baked in bread, coffee undrinkable and dessert not fit to eat, fine dining bar expects you to suck beer from a long neck bottle. Time before, waiter dumped drink on me. Jerked around at check in, did not want to honor reservation through Open Table.

    I ate here last month. We are Landry's select members which means nothing at this particular restaurant. We waited almost 40 minutes after our reservation time. This happened last month. Both times they had conventioneers there taking up all of the tables and booths. They managed reservations very poorly. Preference should have been given to their regular customers. If you have a 7;00 reservation, do not seat someone at 6:45. The only thing we got was a "so sorry for the wait", both times. I will be dinning with them on December 31, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. How long will it take for us to be seated, let alone in our requested snug.

    Ahi special was terrible. Rice was mushy like mashed potatoes. It was unexpectedly an entirely cold plate of food. Yes, it was a seared fish but was still too icy for my liking in temperature. Server was apologetic but entree not comped. Steak was acceptable, as expected. Nothing special tho.
