We came on a Monday ebening to avoid a crowd, which we did. However it did not have a positive effect on the service. Out waiter took our drink order . I ordered a lemon drop martini. He came back with a cosmo. Not even the same color. My husband ordered a filet and was given a ribeye. Lastly he brought us the wrong check. The roasted root vegatables were raw and had no seasoning on them. I love crisp cooked vegatables, but these were raw. This was our first trip to your restaurant. We were very disappointed. It was not a 150.00 bill experience.

Made reservation to celebrate my son.s birthday, no acknowlegement at all by staff. Martin (waiter) was stiff, and service was poor. Was asked if we wanted bread, said he would bring it right out. Never got it. Food was not hot, when served but not cold. Pecan pie filling was cold, should have been warmed up, crust could not be broken with a fork. This is not a cheap place to eat. But extremely disappointed in food and service, will not be back anytime soon.

Always wanted to go, but thought it would be too fancy and expensive. While the dishes are pricey, it was well worth it because it was delicious. The drinks were refreshing, and the seafood was so fresh, I'd have thought we were near a beach. Our server was courteous and very good at her job.

Was my first time here and the service and the FOOD was amazing!!! Had the NY Strip and it was like cutting butter. So tender and the taste was absolutely delicious. Best steak I’ve had at a restaurant. The bartender made an OUTSTANDING Old Fashioned. I could’ve sat and drank those all night 🤣. Our server was very knowledgeable and we followed several of his suggestions. Like the Lobster mashed potatoes! Holy cow those are fantastic. Overall, Fabulous experience! Highly recommend going here.

A little pricey but the food and service were good and we enjoyed a complimentary dessert in celebration of a birthday. Our server Brett was attentive, knew the menu well, and made recommendations based on our input. All of us (party of 5) ordered different entrees and shared an appetizer. The Shrimp Kisses and Oysters Rockerfeller (appetizers) were awesome and the Beef Medallions were cooked perfectly to order. Salmon Pesto Rigatoni and Caprese Salad was a great pairing and the twin lobster tails outstanding. Lobster Cobb Tower was a lovely presentation with lots of favorite ingredients. And the Sea Scallops were delicious. The Chocolate Lava Cake was shared and enjoyed by all as we had no room for individual desserts. Definitely a place for a special occasion dinner/night out.

The food for one of the dishes was completely cold, it was replaced but had clearly just been microwaved and re-plated. I would advise you to spend your money elsewhere.
Service made no attempt to make up for the fact that one member of the party was left to eat their meal alone as they needed to have it heated up, ruined the meal entirely.

My mother’s 76th birthday celebration dinner, just two of us, and M&S was a great spot. We were able to be seated immediately on arrival (I did have a reservation, but it hadn’t been necessary as early at 5 on a Saturday. The server was extremely attentive, recommended good drinks, and checked back often. The appetizer of tableside tuna tartare was delicious. Lobster bisque was tasty but spare on lobster. Sea scallop dinner was thoroughly enjoyed by my mother and I savored every bite of the rockfish on mushroom risotto. We ordered creme brûlée for dessert and hers was on the house for her birthday. Turned out to be quite the occasion and I was pleased with the cost.

Excellent service: we especially loved hearing Tiara ask "what can she have the Chef prepare for us?" Martini was a little bland though. Bread was excellent and you can get full just on desert. We will go back.

The food was outstanding, but the service was just so-so. Drinks were not filled promptly, and the staff was a bit unprofessional with how the addressed us. I am not that picky, so I would eat there again. However, for the price of the meals, the wait staff needs to step up their attentiveness and professionalism.

This was me and my best friend first time having dinner at McCormick & Schmick's. Our server Lauren was amazing. The lobster bisque was one of the best I've tasted so far. First time having sea bass and that has become one of my favorites. From the friendly staff to the excellent cherry mules this will be one of my memorable experience. I will definitely return.

Went here because we wanted a night out. Had a late reservation on a Friday night which we didn’t need because it was darn near empty which brings me to my issue. The host had issue finding my reservation which was at 9pm and we showed up exactly at 9pm and were the only ones with a reservation at that time with no one in front of us... said he didn’t see a reservation for me unless my name was S K which threw me off because my name is K S?? Anyway got seated and our main waiter took all of 10-15 minutes to come over to us. Once he did he didn’t tell us anything about any specials, ask us if we had been there before or bother explaining anything to us. It’s like he was mute. Very awkward. Whole time as I’m looking around with only 1 table to service I’m wondering wth took so long.

I ordered an app buttermilk fried oysters which were good and came right out but after that we didn’t see him again for another 15 min. No water refills etc. skipping ahead we ordered I got the ribeye and sub roasted potatoes for beets and onions.. yuk, and added a lobster tail. She got the lbs crab AK King crab. Food took forever and once it finally came I didn’t have my lobster tail, so I waited thinking it might come and I ate most of my meal before I finally asked do I get a lobster tail once he finally came over to us after another 15-20 min. Of which I was basically done with my food. Once it came out there was no drawn butter for it and it still showed up on my bill.. which in my opinion it should have been taken off... anyway unapologetically once we were done we quickly had our bill all of a sudden and that was the best part of the night .. why because they wanted to get us out.

Both entrees, salmon and crab cakes were fine. The Chesapeake fries that came with the crab cakes were less then good. When the plate arrived and I tried to dip one into the ketchup it wilted badly. Couldn’t even stand straight out. Not good. Maybe they had been sitting to long somewhere.

Service was sub par to say the least. We had to ask her name and what the specials were. Definitely seemed like it was the last place she wanted to be. I might not have been as disappointed had I been at a fast food chain where service expectations are pretty low :/. I also felt like my food (Hawaiian Ahi Tuna) was just 'ok'. Definitely wasn't impressed for not having visited in quite some time. Only up side seemed to be location/parking.

Never got to eat my steak. Came to me under cooked. They took it back and was still under cooked. Then my husband was already done eating by the time they brought it back the second time, so I told them I didn't want it. What a waste of a gift card.
