We loved the food and the time together! Our server was great and she laughed with us. A totally positive experience. I did forget to bring my free birthday dessert coupon which expired on the 17th - that very day😌 Maybe next year I will use one!
Poor food for the price
The service was not very good. Our server was an order taker, no suggestive selling, no guided tour of the menu, provided no recommendations, put his elbow and back of the hand in our face when pouring wine, asked about the specials and the server said they are at the top of the menu in the box, tickets times between courses was too long, New England Clam Chowder was Luke warm and had to return all 3 cups, trying to get waters, beers and wine refilled was like pulling teeth. The MOD / Manager didn’t walk the dinning room our visit tables. She had no clue what was going on in her restaurant. I could go on and on but we will never go back there again. $500.00 meal was a waste. BTW another person joined our table and it took 41 minutes for a MW steak / filet.
Hostess appeared bothered to seat us upon entering. Server was friendly but awkward. For example, he took our drink orders then just walked away before we could say anything else (the restaurant was mostly empty). Caesar salad was slightly brown, very vinegary, and unusual but not not quite bad enough to send back. Clam chowder soup was similar in that it had a decent flavor but was only slightly warmer than room temperature. Main entrees were quite good. Server randomly started trying to make small talk with us towards the end of the meal.
Excellent seafood experience, great staff, wonderful location with free parking in the garage on weekends and evenings.
Somewhat mediocre pasta dishes - over-cooked and lacking flavor. Perhaps their pricier options are better - we did not order one of their beef or signature fish dishes.
The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. Sustainable Scottish salmon with saffron was superb, as was the rockfish. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Service was the worst was ignored for the first 30 min. Not even water. Waiting on the back end as well the check took at least 20 min from when I requested it. What should have been a 2 hour business dinner was a 3.5 hour debacle. Never again avoid this chain.
I've visited M&S numerous times but not since the takeover by Landry's. M&S has been "fundamentally transformed" by the group behind Bubba Gump and Rainforest Cafe into just another overpriced mass-market corporate restaurant with upscale pretensions. The menu includes an awful lot of shrimp dishes and crabmeat, with fancy garnishes such as "finely shaved flavored ice" (only $1.50 extra) which shows they're catering to a less discriminating clientele.
I noticed a lot of very casual attire and work uniforms - not normally found in fine restaurants. We were seated and an energetic young man introduced himself as our waiter. Before he even took our drink order, he pitched us on Landry's Select Club® which we found somewhat crass, given the setting.
For appetizers my wife had the Tableside (Ahi) Tartare, which was great, and lobster bisque, which was not. It tasted okay but was as thick as wallpaper paste, which seems to be something corporate restaurants have decided people want. I had the Calamari "Fritto Misto" which was just a big pile of fried calamari like you'd get anywhere, with about a shot glass sized container of sauce. I asked for more sauce but never got it.
My wife had Grilled Maryland Rockfish served over what amounted to a scaled down cioppino and was pretty tasty. They were featuring grilled Sottish Wild Isles Salmon but they also offered it pan-seared with a mushroom risotto which looked better so I tried that. My "pan-seared" salmon had clearly been grilled, was oily and overcooked. The risotto was dry and the mushrooms were in big chunks that appeared to have been sauteed and tossed into a pre-prepared risotto. We passed on desert.
Bear in mind that we were expecting the original M&S, not Landry's corporate mediocrity, so my remark may not apply if you never dined there pre-Landry's. If you want casual dining with upscale trappings - and a price to match - then you may find McCormick & Schmick's a suitable dining experience.
M&S is always a great place to have a good meal. The lobster bisque was delicious.
I'll continue to go back and recommend it to friends.
Enjoyed a wonderful seafood dinner with my son, visiting from out of town. The salmon special was perfectly done, moist and tender. The wait staff was very pleasant and helpful. I would recommend and will return again for a special treat.
Megan(sp) was fantastic! We were celebrating my parents’ two birthdays and she took special care of us! Our dinner ended up lasting a long time because we weren’t in a hurry and were enjoying visiting, and Megan didn’t make us feel rushed in the slightest! She was very kind, cool under pressure (we’re a bit of a high maintenance bunch), and a total professional! I’ve been in F&B for over 10 years, and was so impressed! Would definitely return and ask for her again! Thank you for such a great experience!
Seared Octopus appetizer was great and unique. We both enjoyed our salmon. Desert menu was limited. Recommend a bottle of wine. Waiter was very friendly.
The food was pretty good. The steak was a bit chewy, which was slightly disappointing--though I understand this is a seafood restaurant. But, overall it was a nice night.
Very insulted by the server. When we requested for additional bread as only 2 half loafs were provided for the party of 5, he said he will bring more WHEN we finished the original basket, which was not enough for the 5 of us to begin with. In addition, he spilled the food on us during packing. He noticed it but did not even apologized. Your restaurant has a horrible review on Yelp. In addition, your Tysons location has been shut down. This is very disturbing.
Service was exceptionally great. Our server went out of her way to assist and serve. Also, the manager visited our table to check on us.
Unfortunately, the wait service and the food was horrible. The waiter took about 10 minutes to finally greet us. Ordered cocktails about 5 minutes later waiter came back to ask us again what cocktails we ordered. Ordered food and the food seemed to be previously frozen. For the amount you pay it should be fresh or close to it. The salmon I ordered was supposed to be stuffed with crab and shrimp. It was only stuffed with crab and when asked the waiter if the salmon was stuffed with both he said no it’s only stuffed with crab. I asked for the menu and indeed it stated crab and shrimp. At the end of dinner ordered cappuccino in which it took 10 minutes to receive and it was luke warm. Spent $62.00 on food I could have easily received at a lower end restaurant. Extremely disappointed.
We eat at McCormick & Scmick's every year for Valentine's Day as our tradition. This was our fourth year coming to this location and while it was still an enjoyable evening, this year felt a little less special. I can appreciate the need to get as many customers in on a special day like Valentine's Day but there almost seemd to be too many people and often then service suffered.
We made a reservation and still had to wait about 15-20 minutes.
I had the pleasure of Cleveland being my waiter and he was excellent!
We are Landry club members and come often but tonight was a total miss from timing to food especially dry steak to having to ask manager to check on food. A bit disappointed to say the least.
As a member of Landry’s Club and presenting the membership card, the host didn’t greet us or acknowledged us until he decided he was ready to check us in.
Previous experiences with the club, someone comes to your table to greet you and verify everything is ok, not in this occasion.
A five long inches hair was in my son’s burger, someone came to tell us that they were sorry and will follow up to replace the meal, that person never came back. After receiving the burger, we all had finished eating and he couldn’t eat any more.
No one came to offer any more drinks or offer any water I’m refills.
Honestly, we expected better for this class of restaurant.
Slow slow service to the point of excruciating annoyance. Lunch took 1 hour 40 minutes and it’s not because I was chatting.
Excellent seafood. Great oysters. Good wine list.
Food was delicious. However, we all returned our soup because it was lukewarm. It came back properly hot. Server, Megan, was very good, friendly and caring. Long wait between courses. Recommend you have no other plans so you can relax despite the wait. Prices are reasonable for the food served.
We visited for valentine's day, our first time, our waitress was really good. She kept checking up on us and made sure we were satisfied. She would be on top of our list for returning. The food was amazing, but the high light of our visit were the drinks. I would definitely recommend here for anyone looking for a nice relaxed environment for a date or jut a place to feel at home.
The best place we have found to eat in Crystal City. Just wounderful service and food.
I never miss McCormick and Schmick's when I visit DC. We first discovered this chain at 16 & K streets in DC and now have visited 18 different properties in different states. The seafood is always fresh and the crab cakes are great. I plan to visit another M & S in a different city in two weeks.
Excellent wait staff and cooks. They have a great selection of wines by the glass as well.
So, our waiter was nice, but he seemed to be off his game. It wasn’t busy, but we had to ask multiple times for simple things like sweetener. The food was good and the cost was reasonable. Would recommended.
Food was not good. Fries were stale and needed to be remade. Martinis were filled half-way. Food wasn’t very fresh or particularly hot. Waaaaaay over-priced for mediocre food.
Overall, we had a great time. The server was really nice and professional; however, very slow. We were the very first table in the restaurant and our appetizer came out cold, and food took almost an hour to come out. We also had to wait a long time for dessert, of which two were birthday desserts. For the money you pay, nothing should come out cold at all and there should be no extensive waits when you are the first table to sit.
I was not pleased with the service. Brandon, the waiter wanted me to pack my leftover salad. This is the 2nd time at this restaurant that I have been disrespected.
Found Hair in my initial order although they did go get another order — I was still charged for the dish — incredible as the manager said we don’t compensate we just replace — wow — again there were 3 large strands of hair in my Cole slaw —
The customer service from the Assistant Manager on duty was awful — felt like I was negotiating to have a good meal and evening.
We visit M&S periodically for several reasons; the food is good, the prices are generally reasonable, and we can usually get a 1k point table. This visit was ok; good good, but the waiter was slow. I was a little bothered by the hostess who wanted to sit us near the bar while happy hour was in full swing and we were obviously there for a quiet dinner. After a short discussion, we cleared the issue up and were seated further back away from the noise. We’ll come back occasionally when the situation warrants a visit.
Overall experience was just okay. The food was mediocre and certainly not on par was the cost of the meal. My husband and I order two salads to start - mine did not have any salad dressing on it. Not a deal breaker as I was able to get some on the side and it was pretty good. Had to ask for bread which was either stale or just baked too long as it was very hard to eat. For our main meal, my husband order the Seared Hawaiian Tuna which we were told is flown in fresh from Hawaii every night. To say it was bland would be an understatement - it was only encrusted with sesame seeds but otherwise lacked total flavor. For my meal, I order the beef medallions which was cooked to my liking (medium rare) and the sauce was good, however, the spinach and mushrooms were not edible. It had no flavor and almost as if it had just been sitting in water. I asked if I could substitute asparagus for the mashed potatoes that came with the meal, but not only did I have to wait on the asparagus as it was forgotten, I also got charged over $5 for it. This was our second visit to M&S and will be our last. Too many chain restaurants overcharge these days for subpar food.
The Metro Washington Restaurant Week Dinner menu offered a very nice selection for a great price. Mrs' fish dish and my lobster dish were very tasty and cooked perfectly. Service was excellent. We make this restaurant one of our regular stops.
I went here today with a co worker for lunch since it was restaurant week. Sadly we had a very bad experience. My reservation was for 12:15pm. When we walked in the hostess was not at the front. We had to wait another 10 min to be seated. Then when we were seated and ordered, i was told the crab dip that was on the restaurant week menu was not available any longer. How do you run out of food at only 12:30pm during the day???!! This was the main reason i had come here. Then we waited over an HOUR for our food to arrive. Yes, an HOUR!! Keep in mind, my lunch break is only 1 hour. Then i asked for my desert to go with NO ice cream. WHy did they come out with my dessert in a bag and told me that they were all out of the dessert i had requested??? This is the 2nd time now. So they took it upon themselves to give me the creme brulee which i did not order or ask for. AND they put ice cream on it!! Long story short, i had the manage come out and they only took 20% off the check.
It was great
I was honestly underwhelmed by the quality of food and service. I came on Thursday night with my boyfriend and there was a clear lack of servers/hosts/hostesses/ waiters. We had a very attentive waiter the first half of the night who was a "trainee." We did not meet our actual server until later in the night when it was clear that the trainee went home. Our food was okay, but I was not really amazed by the quality for the price. My boyfriend's meat came out very very rare, and he prefers medium rare, so we had to send back the meal to be modified (first time I've ever had to send back a meal).
Overall not sure I would ever come back.
