8:00 PM reservation for 2?? More like get in line at 8:00 and wait 35 minutes for a hostess to SEAT THE WRONG COUPLE. Our name was called. The hostess didn't open her eyes I guess. She grabbed a walk-in couple that had been waiting about... 15-30 seconds. When the other hosts realized this, all they said was "oh.. sorry". So there we waited another 5 minutes for a table to open up. nice. Food was really good.. an hour later.

Waited an hour past reservation time to be seated. Food was great and we will definitely try again.

We had reservations at 7:30pm. I hired a car to take us and pick us up so we could enjoy the meal and cocktails. I scheduled our pickup at 9:30pm. We arrived on time and were not seated until approximately 8:26pm. From there it seemed like we were an afterthought. At 9:30 our meals had not been served. I asked for a manager and informed them we were leaving because of the service. They didn’t even offer to comp the drinks and appetizer. I paid the 55.00 I owed and will never spend another dime at this establishment.

Went for a Valentines Day, overall experience was good; 4.2. There was an issue with the menu, but the manager in duty, Lauren, ensured we were taken care of.

The hostess was excellent and she was multi-tasking the whole night. Our waiter took 20 min just to introduce himself. I understand Valentine’s Day but I also wanted a special evening. The food was great but then again wait staff was lengthy with pitching desert and by that time we just were ready to go. I will try this place again under regular circumstances and hope the service will be better.

I shouldn’t have to pay for a refill of sweet tea when I asked for mashed potatoes they gave me roasted potatoes when I told the waiter that I want a regular mashed potatoes he said he would go to the back and check he came back and said they ran out of mashed potatoes how can a huge franchise like you all run out of food if you know that you’re going to be having all these guests there you should’ve ordered more food then they ran out a steak sauce for the steak so I had to eat a big dry steak with no steak sauce and he’s running the wait is running around trying to find it that was my very first time coming to a restaurant and I have been wanting to try this restaurant for months I would never come there again or maybe it’s that location it was poor quality it was horrible

Julius is the one of the best persons in the world. He hails from the ivory continent, the beautiful country of Kenya. He is so professional but moreso he is living and kind. All people that appreciate generosity and a kind spirit can appreciate him. He is the only reason that I would ever come back to this restaurant! I also would hire and employ him to work at my firm at any time.

It was very mediocre. The prices don’t match the dining experience and we also had to send one of our steaks back because it was not cooked to the right temperature. Would not recommend.

I had not dined at the McCormick & Schmick in Uptown in a while and this meal was one of mixed emotions. My first disappointment was with the seafood gumbo which was some of the worst I have ever eaten. Gumbo at the City Center location is many time better. I was also disappointed with the Oysters Rockefeller which tasted like a glob of Bearnaise had just been tossed on top of the spinach and oyster. Would have been nice if it was browned on top. My fish dish however was cooked to perfection and tasted great. The service was also excellent.

Another Landry's standard formula. Food was fresh but overly buttery and greasy. Nice presentation, but left with a greasy coating in my mouth.

We had a great anniversary dinner, and the food was, of course, simple fish and meat dishes.
Everything was very well prepared, and we were totally happy.
It's not Haute Cuisine, but no one expects it to be.
For great American fare, it was perfect, and the waitstaff was great.

The twin lobsters were mushy and the shell was black as if it was contaminated. My steak was supposed to be cooked med-we’ll and it was very rare. The waiter over charged my card on top of that. Spoke to a manager and she took my dish off the bill. The Restaurant is beautiful but the food was disgusting! We will never eat there again. Very disappointed with the food to be in the Galleria area. I expected much better.

I sent my wife and five of her friends out to celebrate her birthday. The ladies truly enjoyed the food, the companionship, and the ambiance of McCormick & Schmick’s. I was happy to hear about how good the evening went and I won’t hesitate to eat here many times in the future. Thank you to the staff for making her birthday memorable.
