I will never eat at a restaurant owned by Tillman Fertitta again. We once loved this restaurant but it has gone down hill. It is at the bottom of the hill. Such a shame.

My perspective is that of a loyal customer who has been to this particular McCormick&Schmick many times, mostly for special occasions, and I have also been to multiple McCormick&Schmick restaurants in other cities. I have always enjoyed the restaurant-its ambience, and most particularly its delicious food. My son and I went there for his birthday a couple of years ago, and when given a choice of any restaurant in Houston, this year for his birthday that’s where he wanted to go. He remembers having the most delicious salmon there! However, this experience did not compare to previously. I understand the restaurant has changed ownership and is now owned by the Ferttita group. I don’t know when that change happened. This experience just wasn’t the same. Our server was quite cheerful, but not as attentive as expected. It was freezing cold, to the point my adult son was trying to cover his arms with his napkin. We actually both ordered the same thing, as we had so been looking forward to it! The cedar plank salmon with berry sauce had no cedar plank (used to be served on one) and barely any berry sauce. The sauce was kind of under the salmon, had very little flavor and was so scanty we could barely scrape it up with our forks. The fish itself, which in previous experience was nicely done, flavorful, with crispy edges and perfectly cooked, was soft and mushy and utterly flavorless. The vegetables needed salt and perhaps something else including grill marks as they were just mostly soggy. The salad that preceded it wasn’t bad but it didn’t have the flavor punch as the same salad had in the past and the dressing was so scanty that it was hard to taste. The lobster bisque was actually quite delicious! And the saving grace (because my son regretted his choice and felt the evening was spoiled) was the birthday cheesecake, which was delicious and served prettily with Happy Birthday spelled in sauce and a candle. We were disappointed, especially for the cost.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the service, the food and the general ambience. On our previous visit we found the service and the food to be lacking. As far as we're concerned M&S is back!

We love the food selections and quality, and especially the options for small dishes. Great variety and everything was delicious. Our only complaint is that all sauces have some type of chili pepper in them. I can't handle anything spicy and there was no option for a garlic aioli or cocktail sauce or anything other than ranch dressing.

The food was good but the order came out completely wrong and then when they brought us the missing portions it was just not up to par in how it was cooked. The waitress was nice but the experience was not the usual M&S I’ve experienced before.

M & S is a good restaurant. love the ambiance. love the food. what I didn't like was a persistent crying child whose parents did nothing and the poor service. I believe this was only the waiter and not all of M&S. we (four of us) asked to be re-seated to another area of the restaurant because of the annoying child, which happened. service was just slow. I didn't see an overcrowded venue. I think the management could have come in an suggested a complimentary something for all the above. didn't happen. I am more annoyed at parents who bring their children to a place and cannot control their behavior. We are paying good money and do not want to hear all of the commotion.

We enjoyed the experience, how the service was not as strong as I had expected. There were times when an unexpected wait occurred. Sunday brunch is a popular time, so hopefully more staff will be assigned to work during this time. Our waiter Julius did a great job, however it was apparent that he should have had more support.

Second time at that particular location. First time I didn’t enjoy my service this time I had a wonder waiter name Guy! He is the absolute best. He made should he checked on us often. Made sure my table was clear. The place was very busy and he had other tables and she still manage to take care of us all.
