Very disappointed. The trout was over cooked and tasteless . Returned it. The manager did not remove it from the bill. Service was bad.

The food at M&S is fabulous. We had a wonderful waiter who was very attentive and too great care of us without being a nuisance. I would highly recommend McCormick & Schmicks.

In Houston for the weekend, and wanted a nice relaxing evening with some great seafood. M&S on Uptown Park never disappoints! Shrimp “kisses” are a great start to any meal, and the lobster bisque is one of the best I’ve ever had. My wife enjoyed almond crusted trout and I went old school with an amazing platter of buttermilk fried shrimp. A perfect end to dinner was a dessert of fresh berries and cream in a “chocolate bag”.

Had a fantastic meal at the location in Downtown Houston. The food was fantastic at a very reasonable price. The restaurant music was louder than I would have liked but overall did not make me feel I needed to shout to have a conversation.

Great food in a lovely restaurant. Server, Jorge, was good ... very informative, but as the night got busy in the restaurant it was pretty slow getting our bill, but otherwise very attentive service and great place to visit friends in one of M&S's 'snugs'. We had a great time and will be back.

Hi,

sorry to say that...but no one was at the reception....we were waiting for more than 5 minutes but no one was there to welcome us and provide seats/table! and then we asked one of the waters to call the responsible person to assign a seat for us.

The seafood order was good but the stake was not as expected.
it was our anniversary day and we expected some deserts (like the other fine restaurants) but nothing was provided.

Thanks
Yousef

Enjoyed celebrating my 50th birthday with my husband. Food was great as usual and service was terrific. You must try the Bubbles and Pearls drink that is made at the table. It was a very good presentation and the drink itself was FABULOUS!!!

My husband took me on a lunch date here, I kinda hesitated at the choice because i think of it as a chain. I was dead wrong. Excellence from the valet to the dessert . We had a fantastic meal, and excellent service in an elegant, relaxing atmosphere. We will definitely be back

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.

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.

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

We took advantage of Valentines Day falling on a Friday to actually go out for dinner (we usually entertain with friends by staying in and cooking dinner) and chose McCormick & Schmick’s because we’ve dined there several time’s in the past and appreciate the varied menu.

We were stuck in traffic and - when I saw that we would definitely be late for our reservation, I called to let them know we were about 15 minutes behind schedule. The young lady who took the call was most appreciative and advised that there would not be a problem getting a table; true to her word, she seated us shortly after we arrived.

The rest of the evening did not disappoint! The service was first-rate, the food was well-prepared and we really enjoyed people watching in the dining room (lots of red on the ladies AND the men!)

Thanks to the entire McCormick & Schmick’s staff for a memorable Valentines Day dinner!

Waiter didn’t really check up on us. We were sat in a busy area and people were zooming past our table.

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.
