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.

We ordered steak medallions with king crab and steak medallions with twin lobster tails....both medium well. The steak with crab came out perfectly but the other was well done. When sent back it came back over done with edges curled up and dry. Needless to say by the third try we had finished eating before it came back. The manager didn't stop by our table when she made her rounds to everyone else in our area and our server had to ask her to come over about the steak and the server offered us a free dessert....nothing from her. I love this place but it ruined my wife's birthday dinner.

It was really slow the entire time we were there. The waitress obviously would rather talk to other employees than wait on us. We sat there and waited several different times for something. She was ten feet away chatting with someone and then just walked off and didn't even look in our direction. There are too many great steakhouses in Houston so i will not be returning to this restaurant. However, the food was great. Steak was cooked perfect and fresh oysters really good. I know now why they where so slow on NYE.

We went to McCormick & Schmick's for a family celebration of our anniversary. The service was great and they gave us one of the private areas we requested. There was great variety on the menu and this is one of the only places we have found that serves Alaskan King Crab Legs, my wife's favorite. We had my two grandsons and the restaurant was very kid friendly. Everyone loved the food and we had one of the chocolate bags for desert. This wasn't our first time there and it won't be our last. We loved the entire evening.

It may have been Christmas Day and possibly a bit understaffed. We were seated at least five minutes before someone asked us if anyone had waited on us. We did get some entertainment as one of the busboys was busy adjusting and moving tables to accommodate a larger group. A necessity in a restaurant but also a distraction as he needed to use a mallet to drop the table sides to convert from round to square. The food was excellent other than a miss on a side order.

Dined at lunch on Christmas Day. All of the staff that waited on us had a great attitude and thanked us for coming. You are sometimes not sure how the employees will respond when working holidays, but these people were great. Food was excellent and though it can be pricey, it was a very enjoyable experience.

Usual quality was excellent; broke the cycle and ordered medallions at a seafood restaurant and the meat was very tender, a very pleasant surprise, but still disappointed as M&S has taken trout and tilapia off its menu!

The relentless sales pitching of Landry's enterprises was very annoying. Is there NO PLACE LEFT that doesn't accost you with a relentless verbal commercial to "join" their "benefits club?" When it comes to dining, just stop. Unless you endeavor to become Panera.

It started off good, it was my daughter’s birthday and we had gift cards we needed to use, so I got reservations and they sat us at the window. We had two different servers attending to us, which I though was nice, but then everything went downhill after that.
1. Our table’s window view was the view of smokers and every time they went in or out we smelled smoke. Neither one of our 2 servers wanted to say anything so they said they’d get the manager who never came, so I ended up telling the smokers to please move away from the door and window, but when the next set of smokers came out, same scenario!
2. Asked for manager directly, never came, so my husband had to get up to go find him and asked to be moved since they obviously allow smokers to stand at the window and door to smoke.
3. Got moved, but didn’t get better. Apps were good but my husband never got his soda or gumbo, I had to ask for water more than once, my daughter’s hot water for tea got cold waiting for the tea bag. Then food came out and my daughter’s filet had gristle, I’ve never in my life had filet mignon that had gristle, I think they just cut a strip to look like filet because no way that was, then my sea bass had no flavor and usually sea bass is like butter, nope! My dad’s lump crab cake was not lump at all, pure shredded crab with way too much filler.
4. Not to mention this was a Friday night at 7:30 and the restaurant was basically empty and I can not believe two servers could not keep up with a party of 7 people, the whole experience was RIDICULOUS!! NEVER AGAIN!!!

Worst meal in a very long time. First course of seared tuna was poorly presented and the tuna not close to being fresh. Long wait between courses. Silverskin on my fillet and terrible presentation of my wife’s main course. It looked like school food and there was not enough gravy. The waitress seemed more interested in upselling membership of some rewards scheme even though we professed no interest. The whole experience was very disappointing and I will never eat there again.

From the first contact with Charlene to make our reservations everything was perfect. She is so very nice! We had Guy as our waiter and he was the consummate professional. From recommending wine to his entire demeanor, he was a pleasure to have him at our family holiday mean.
