Our waitress terrible. She had zero knowledge of the menu and rarely checked on us. Our dinner and our dessert both were missing an item.
The appetizer, dessert and steak were good. My parmesan crusted flounder was tasteless as was the butternut squash orzo.
I would not recommend nor will I be returning. Ambiance was nice.

We dined during the Cincinnati Restaurant week and ordered the specials they were offering. The food was excellent, with the lobster tails being small but very tasty and well prepared. The salads and sides were great and the 2 deserts were outstanding! Service was wonderful! We highly recommend visiting McCormick and Schmicks!

A nitpicky complaint, but one I need to address. I substituted the sautéed spinach with my lunch, not knowing that they do not cut the stems off the spinach. Imagine my terror when I realized that part of a stem got caught in my teeth. A situation that could easily have gone viral. Note to Self: Never order the sautéed spinach again.

Very disappointed, went for daughter’s. Irthday celebration. We were seated at a dirty table, glasses continuously went dry, had to ask three different times for bread, were told it was baking, and then when it came out it was cold. The bill was wrong and to top it off when my husband and son went to the restroom before leaving , they had no hot water.

We had 4:30 reservations and told the waiter we were going to Arnoff for 6:30 show. The service was extremely slow, and we didn’t get our dinner until 5:50. We didn’t order appetizers, only salads. A couple that came in 40 minuets after us got their food before we did. The waiter forgot our bread, wine, ice until reminded. There were only a handful of tables occupied while we were there.

Our group of 6 ladies enjoyed our dinner at McCormick and Schmick's. Our server was friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. While the pricing is higher than what you might pay other places, the quality was wonderful, and the portion sizes were generous. We had requested a gluten - free menu ahead of time, and it was ready and at the table when we arrived. Thank you for a wonderful evening; we would recommend this restaurant.

We were seated promptly for 8 pm. Hershel was our waiter. Service was prompt, effective, personable, and humorous. We're Landry Select Club members and we recommend joining it. The rewards outweigh the slight cost. All of our food choices were great, with tasty wine and beer. Also received a free birthday dessert.

Nice restaurant, but sadly not enough servers. For the price of finer dining, we expect a better service experience. Very dark and quiet. Looked like the bar was a better option.

Location is great for midtown events and people watching. Our server was outstanding. Easter brunch food was good but things were not executed well. Food not hot, did not bring small plates for a shared appetizer. Will go back because the server and management made the experience.
