Excellent. New England Clam Chowder was amazing. Great oysters, great wine. Superb service!
Service was slow to get started but slowly improved. The food was decent but nothing to write home about.
It was pleasant, the food has been better before
Well it was my birthday I thought they would have acknowledged it with a dessert. The waitress told our server before we were seated it was my birthday. Nothing occurred.😔
Service: very friendly and helpful. The host was great and friendly. The waiter was attentive, efficient, and provided great recommendations.
Food: one of the best steaks I've had in any restaurant. I had the bone in black Angus rib eye. It was cooked to my request (medium) and was very tasty and juicy.
Drinks: me and my wife loved our drinks, I had the old fashioned while she had the raspberry mule.
Value: a little on the high end but definitely worth the price.
I highly recommend dining here, I will definitely return at this restaurant if ever in the area again.
Had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday. No wait, easy to get to and parking a breeze in the garage. Food was delicious and the desert was incredible. Will definitely go again.
I was on a date when three women sitting across from me was loud and extremely disrespectful the entire evening. They were able to stay their entire meal, completely making us uncomfortable due to the virus going on and their lack of masks. We didn’t complain there though but to pay what we paid then have that experience will not be forgotten.
Awesome. Food was great service was incredibly wonderful. Thank you
The evening started off bumpy. We had reservations but upon arrival, there seemed to be a debate about where to seat us. After seating, we spent close to 15 minutes with no one attending to us - no water, attention, etc. Finally, we asked for attention from the hostess who took our order but then no one brought it out to us. When we finally got a regular wait person, she was very nice and attentive and the dinner went well. Yet, it was all tainted by a very bad arrival experience. As the saying goes, "You don't get a second chance to make a first impression." Given the food was very good, I would cautiously recommend M&S.
It was great. I was there for my birthday, our server was amazing. great ambience, great food and drinks. I will be back
Steak was amazing!
Service could have been a bit better, like offering to pour wine & we had to ask to have dirty plates removed.
Overall great meal and we will be back soon! Love the steak!!!
Our food was service was really delayed. And they ran out of dessert.
Amazing dining experience. Service was top notch and food was excellent. I will go again.
The food was delectable, and the service was professional to the upmost.
My fish meal was boring and the mashed Potatoes weren't worth serving. The portions were small and as such..over priced.
Poor server attentiveness by the bartender, but once we left the bar and were seated for dinner our second waiter was fine.
Excellent food and superior service!
We were the only table in the whole restaurant. Food was below a sports bar. McCormick and Schmidt supposed to be a higher end restaurant. The steaks were overcooked. The server only stopped by the table once. Highly would not recommend this restaurant.
The food was very good and tasty.
Our server was nice and helpful.
Good food! Amazing service! Loved everything about it.
We dined on a Wednesday evening & we were the only people there. That was due to COVID. It felt very sterile.
The tables was sticky but the bar tender wipe it a couple times then got napkins to line our table so we can enjoy the night. Asked if I could substitute seafood for chicken and that was a yes... I never knew this... Yay no more fries for me...
I wouldn't recommend this place. The waiter was very slow and he took forever getting back to see how we was doing. It was not great at all.
Enjoyed every second! Everything was absolutely delicious. Service was outstanding. I will return post COVID.
Soup was very good as was last years. Meal was mediocre, compared to last year. Had to ask for bread. Drink looked like half had spilled on the way to the table.
Luck of the draw.
Pretty much always a first rate expereince, which is why we come here. Always will be on the pricey side, but the little service extras are always nice -- like splitting up one dinner order between two people and adding a little flair to the presentation to boot!
The food wasn’t worth the price ticket. My mashed potatoes weren’t fresh but came to the table cold, the salmon was very bland, the waiter came back to the the table three times because he was offering drinks that weren’t available. My husband’s fish was dry and his fries weren’t fresh either. The only good thing was the bread and butter!
Great experience. Social distancing and safety protocols were clearly being followed. Very nice time celebrating our anniversary.
The service was absolutely horrible, the server kept forgetting about us. We sat outside however it was somewhere cool and the service was very sporadic. The food was average at best
I was seated without having a server..So I was over looked and service was slow. A server tried to may my experience a little better once she notice what happened.
Azeb was the best server ever! She was professional and friendly and made us feel very welcome.
This review should be titled "Old School Fine Dinning Resting On Its Laurels". In the ultra competitive fine-dining restaurant market M&S seems to be stagnant in the "over the top dining experience" like it seemed to pride itself years ago". I will admit we try to eat at M&S every year because of the Veterans Day special and it just seems to loose a little appeal every year.
First we ordered of the Vets Special menu, a 10-oz center cur sirloin with mash potatoes and upgraded to the $10 walnut & blue cheese salad and desert option (we were told they were making their awesome crème brulee, which is always a treat. Then my wife had the $25 Sunday 3-course special of a Caesar salad, crab cake stuffed flounder and desert, which was a chocolate silk cake. All good or so we thought. This is were the fine went out of dining at M&S (remember the crème brulee was being prepared according to our waiter).
First we get our drinks me a perfect Manhattan and the lovely wife a Resiling (both very good), then a basket of awesome sourdough bread, but no bread plates (maybe COVID)? The salads come and both were very good, then after a medium wait our entrees arrive. But lo and behold, a full size sirloin with no mashed potatoes but over asparagus and a crab and shrimp stuffed flounder with green beans and mashed potatoes? We call our waiter, to tell him we have the wrong food and he offers use free drinks? However, the food is good and we eat it. Then the desert orders are taken and they have no creme brulee after 40 minutes of ordering. Kitchen manager should be fired for that travesty, so we both have a underwhelming chocolate cake. Then the real fun comes as we get our bill.
The waiter appeared to have out every thing ala-cart with the special and it was about $25 dollars more than expected. It took 3 times for them to get it correct. Overall the food was good, the experience not so much. May look for another fine dining restaurant for Vets Day even if we pay more.
Meals were ordered for takeout.
The bag with meals was waiting on the counter top on time as requested.
The duty manager also loaded the order into my Landryselect card and applied the $25 credit in the card from previous purchase.
I took the order home and since we had a visit scheduled with grandson, I put the steak and veggies in the refrigerator. When we returned home, I heated the steak in the microwave for brief time. The steak was ordered medium and even after a visit to the MW, the steak was warmed but not overcooked.
Everything about the meals were just fantastic.
Took entirely too long for my check- almost 30 minutes- crazy-
Great service and excellent food will attend again
Excellent choice for quiet intimate dinner. Great food and exceptional service.
The service was impeccable. The food would marvelous. It was our first visit and we definitely will return.
The waiter was very nice and friendly with good knowledge! He was very attentive but not pestering. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. We were celebrating our 24th Anniversary and chose the restaurant for the 1st time since we heard so much about it. The whole experience was terrific
The service was great, and the server was professional and superb. The food was awesome, no complaints. I would recommend this restaurant to persons in that area.
Lobster tail was small and tasted bad, steak was good, as was the desert. Server was disinterested in helping us at all - worst service we’ve had in a long tine. We will not bet returning
