My husband and I came for date night we can’t say enough good things, our server Shay did a phenomenal job making sure every need was met. We had made reservations we got there early they ended up seating us right away. We will definitely be back again soon.

We love McCormick & Schmick! Yes, I do realize it is a chain, but it is the only Landry's chain in Kansas City and there is a reason chains become chains... Awesome food, good service and atmosphere that is appropriate for everything from a business lunch to a date with your sweetie. On our last visit, I had the scallops, which were prepared perfectly (not an easy task). I sometimes hesitate to order scallops, because I'm afraid there won't be enough food... these come on a bed of crab potato hash, which is delicious and quite filling! My wife always gets the butterflied fried shrimp and loves how every single bite has a crunchy breading (she also seems to think that that there cocktail sauce is above average... it's cocktail sauce, but to each their own!). Looking forward to our next visit, I wish I could say I would try something else, but it is unlikely! Go with what you know!

We haven't been to this restaurant for a few years and it has really gone down hill. The service was beyond slow, although our waiter was nice. The food was mediocre at best and had little flavor.

Took a friend there for her birthday. Put in that it was for a birthday upon booking. The waitress we had wasn’t great, but I have really no complaints about the food. At the end of the meal the waitress handed us the check without even asking about desserts or acknowledging the birthday. We had to let her know that in addition to asking for our drinks to be refilled. However, that being said, I always enjoy going to McCormick and Schmitts. The menu seemed a little leaner on entrees than I had remembered in the past. My friend had a combo meal and I had the scallops. Very good.

My parents and I had not been to McCormick and Schmidt’s in awhile. Always good food and good service - even on a busy Saturday night! Halibut and mako shark exceptional!

Very pleasant dining experience. I wish there were a few more combo or small plate lunch options in the $15 range to compare with restaurants like the Bristol, etc. As for the amount of seafood for the price of the meal, it was fine...just need more lunch size/type options.

2 entrees w no salads and one of us drank water. $173 seems pretty steep. Impeccable service but I will remember to save this for a special occasion from now on.

This past few times, I have been severely disappointed in the service. Our food came out before we even got drinks and our silverware. I had to go up to the bar to get our drinks and water. I also had to ask for silverware because our waitress was nowhere to be found.

The restaurant allowed us to split a lunch sandwich entrée and substitute the soup. The sandwich was delicious - made with fresh, perfectly ripened tomato and avocado and perfectly cooked bacon. The lobster bisque lived up to its reputation. We ate on the patio; a beautiful, quiet setting for two "old" friends to linger and catch up on each others' lives.

Great outdoor space for lunch on a beautiful day with a client. Waiter needed to speak up and seem a little more energized. Food overall was good.

My date and I enjoyed our salmon entrées. The service was above average, but not quite to the level I normally see at McCormick and Schmck’s. The view was beautiful, but the noise level, mostly the music, was a bit high.

When we requested the spicy fried oysters for our appetizer we were told you had none available which was disappointing so we went w/the fried scallops which only included 4 pieces that lacked preparation they were not fried long enough and definitely not worth the price. Also when we requested to order the key lime pie for desert the waitress said let me go to the kitchen to make sure we have it, luckily she said yes but that was a bit frustrating considering we were told the same for the appetizer and for the price of bill, this restaurant should have everything readily available on the menu.

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.
