Reservation was easy and we were seated promptly. Once we received drinks we were very rarely attended to. Took waving down others to get refills. Bread was delivered to the table after we asked repeatedly. We sat down at 7:15 and by 8:15-8:30 had food, it was cold and pretty upsetting when you are spending $40-$50 a plate.
Houston McCormick and Schmicks was less than desirable.

The food was very good but the place was not that crowded and it took way too long to get our food/drinks. In fact, I ordered a glass of wine to have with my meal and it wasn’t until I asked for the bill did they say it was ready. My wife originally wanted dessert but we skipped t bc of the delays.

We were given a nice, quiet booth to celebrate our anniversary and birthday. The salmon was recommended, but I had my heart set on lobster and was not disappointed.

M&S consistently provide great food and good service. The crab cakes are fab and the scallops are always done well. This is a great place for business lunch, in the heart of downtown.

My wife and I had a light lunch in celebration of our wedding anniversary. We began with cocktails, she had the Ruby Revival, a celebration of grapefruit. She loved it. Our first course was the Ancho Chile Grilled Octopus. It was not like chewing a rubber band as the dish cooled during conversation. Great flavor with the firm mouth feel of the Octopus contrasted with softness of the Canellini beans and the zing of the Ancho.
The one disappointment we had was the Lobster Cobb Salad. Maybe it was because we tried to share it, but the salad portion was bland. The presentation was spectacular, if you imagine a classic Cobb Salad gone vertical.

Finally we had a flight of oysters. The St. Simon were stellar.

Our server Sheila was very attentive and inquisitive about some of the techniques and pairings we enjoyed. Ask for Sheila if you go for lunch.

Poor service, disengaged, disinterested waiter, slow service and waiter would disappear, ran out of Alaskan king crab at 7:30pm, took silverware in between courses and then delivered the main course and left. Had to have him come back, after we finally got his attention, to provide us with the silverware we needed. Brought the wrong wine and then left us waiting for refills once we received the correct wine. At least the company was great since I was with my wife on Valentine’s Day.

Have visited this location several time and was pleased. This time my wife and I were not pleased. Service was questionable. Sat at table at least 10 minutes before being approached by waiter. In fact we had already decided what we wanted before the waiter arrived. Got our salads and asked for bread. Finished our salads never got bread. When our entre came first my wife's came and then several minutes later mine came. Had to constantly ask for water. Waiter kept apologizing for inattentiveness. Restaurant had a lot of large groups and I believe the waiter had to much to handle. Restaurant very loud. Appeared more attention paid to groups than couples. Food was great as usual but overall disappointed.

We had 7 reservation. Atmosphere was fine but we waited almost 45 minutes for meal . After speaking with manager the meal appeared in minutes delivered by her. Food was lukewarm but we did not want to wait longer so we ate it. It was our anniversary so needless to say disappointed. This was not our first visit. Manager explanation was that several large parties was ahead of us .Not my problem. This should have been expected day before Valentine’s Day . Complimentary dessert was good but did not suffice.

Just not what you come in expecting. Restaurant was empty. It was 5:30pm. Waiter took forever to show up. Forgot the proper # of place settings for the party. Shrimp was overcooked and chewy. Calamari was very good. No mention of deserts. It was a birthday. Sad to see the quality go down since Landry acquisition.

Service was very poor and food was average at best. I never write bad reviews. Maybe second time in my life. It was my first time at this restaurant and probably the last. Too many good ones to choose from.
