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.

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.

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.
