Adam was an excellent server, we four diners had just a great time all evening. We arrived an hour prior to closing but were received as first customers of the day. A very fitting finish was the experience of the “Chocolate Bag”. Best overall dining experience of the entire year.

I called and made a reservation and requested a window table. When we arrived, they took us to the second tier, corner table next to the steps. I then asked if there was a window table available and then took us to a window table. Why would you seat somebody at a corner table next to traffic when they had other tables available. My food was great and so was our guest. However, my husband fish was very dry and he did not finish his meal. Our waitress did her job but was very soft spoken and offer no suggestions or comments. Very hard to hear her
Not the usual service you receive at M&C. I also told the person when making the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. Nothing was said or done. The restaurant was not busy at the time we were there, so I expected more attention. Disappointed in our experience.

We stopped in for a light meal and a chocolate bag. We each had a delicious bowl of clam chowder and devoured the chocolate bag.

The food was spectacular as usual. The service was marginal. Which is very unusual. My past experiences there with service have been outstanding! Would go again but not sit in that servers section.

The food was not worth the price. Honestly my scallops are better at Houlihan’s. This was supposed to be a special treat for our anniversary but I wish we’d have gone elsewhere. The server told us the wrong specials and it took so long to get our check since the manager had to make the changes. Most likely will not be going back.

Checked in and asked to sit outside. Was told it was open seating and asked if we could have water right away since it was a warm evening. We picked a table and waited approximately 10 minutes for anyone to wait on us. The service was slow the rest of the evening and our meals came out wrong. The manager came out and apologized and said we would only be charged for the meal we ordered. It was a special evening so I wasn't going to make a scene but a bit irritated with the way the manager handled the situation. Overall, our experience was marginal for paying $120 for a meal for two. I probably wouldn't go back

Very nice experience! Lobster bisque was good. Baked stuffed mushrooms were excellent. Entrees of swordfish and stuffed shrimp were outstanding and really good, in that order. The host left you with a stiff or snooty air, but other than that it was a pleasant experience.

It was such a disappointing experience for us. We went out for a girls night expecting a great meal and had terrible service. The restaurant was half empty - there was no reason for the way we sat there for almost 2 1/2 hours. The restaurant was freezing cold - we said something to the waitress and she said “yes it’s been like this all day” but yet they didn’t do anything about it. Wehad empty water glasses almost the whole time, it took 20 to 30 minutes to get a drink. The food was OK but nothing spectacular - will not be going back.

Food was very good and came out in a timely manner. The crab cakes we ordered for an appetizer were incredible and worth the money! The only downside was the waitress came back after 10 min from ordering our food and told the other member of my party that his food was no longer available. Bummer. But after choosing a new entree and getting our food it was still amazing!

M&S is always one of our favorite restaurants to celebrate anniversaries and birthdays. However, I was very disappointed that I had to ask our server for the celebratory desserts. I put it on the Open Table reservation and also called an hour ahead of our reservation to make SURE it was in the notes of our reservation. I was assured it was. However, I had to remind the server for the dessert and he brought one dessert (not of our choosing but a small chocolate square with one scoop of ice cream) and didn't acknowledge our son's birthday as we were celebrating both as they were both this week. I know it probably doesn't seem like a big deal, but it was to me and I will reconsider booking M&S for our next celebration. I just wish the evening would have turned out more celebratory instead of asking.

The special for lunch in August was a Lobster and Shrimp roll and a cup of clam chowder, my wife's dream meal, after a visit to Maine. We were there at 3:00, so we made the 3:30 cut-off for a lunch order. It was perfect! We ended the meal with the apple pie, delicious! My salad with Parmesan-coated chicken was not as over-the-top as her dish, but was good.

I had requested a window table with my reservation and when I arrived was told we could be seated nearby, but not st a window table. Our waiter was quite rude ( motioned for us to pass him our dirty dishes and he stacked them right in front of us. He brought 1 of our checks and 10 minutes later, brought the other 3 checks and said he couldn’t bring them all at the same time cuz he didn’t have enough pens.
