Longer than average wait for main course to be served. Noisy kitchen, too many braking dishes.

Disappointing meal, seafood pasta, pasta was undercooked seafood was overcooked, pretty much like eating a plate of rubber. Special of the night, not so special.

We were so disappointed!! First of all, the food was phenomenal… But the service was poor!! It took 3.5 hours to have dinner (TOO LONG). We brought a special bottle of wine that needed to be opened with an ah-so and I informed the server of this. She proceeded to open it with a standard bottle opener which caused the cork to disintegrate. To add insult to injury, I had been informed that the corkage fee was $20 per bottle but I was charged $25. And they charged me for the bottle that they completely botched. Throughout our dinner, I had to wave down servers to get our water refilled numerous times. It just wasn’t the experience we had hoped for this special occasion. With their prices, service should at least be decent.

Was a nice choice to enjoy a date night out. Service was 5 Stars so was the food and recommendations from our Awesome server.
McCormick always serve the best dishes and all employees greets you in all areas. Fantastic food and service. Can’t wait to go back.
And don’t forget the Chocolate Bag dessert!

Late birthday dinner for my wife before the Andrea Bocelli concert. We drove up from Wichita and it was our second time eating with you. It more than met our expectations from last time and we will return again.

Amazing seafood!! Our server was excellent. The chef special and swordfish were top notch. Can’t leave without having a chocolate basket. Expensive but so worth it for a special date night.

Most importantly the food was not good it was room temp warm and all of it was dry expect the mash potatoes. Drinks were good and the waiter was decent- we dine out a lot and haven’t been back here for a few months because the last experience with the food wasn’t the best. We went for the chocolate bag and they are lucky to have that on their menu because it saves them.

My Sweetie took me out to lunch at one of our favorite places. As always it was delicious. He loves oysters and was not disappointed with the day’s selection. He ordered the seafood special of the month and I had the Blue Cobia tacos. Service was great.

When we visit Kansas City we always eat at your restaurant and are never disappointed. This time was different. Wine was spilled on our outside table and dripped onto my white slacks. No lighting to read a menu, customers were dressed for ball games. Kids
were running up and down stairs yelling. Our anniversary dinner was a huge disappointment.

Party of 8 for my wife’s birthday. Julian was our server and did very well. My wife is 14 weeks pregnant and they even waived the corking fee for her non-alcoholic champagne. Only knock on the evening was the lengthy gap between apps and main course. When I approached Julian he was very responsive. Food was average for the price point. Nothing truly wowed, but a nice dinner with family and friends nonetheless.

Really wish there was a 4 1/2 star option. Not much fault to find in the evening. Food delicious and table service exceptional. Kitchen prep was simply a bit slower than expected.

$15.50 for 4 shrimp wrapped in bacon, and the chocolate bag was considerably smaller. Not sure it was worth the price.

The food was average, but we expected high end due to the price and reputation of the restaurant. The amount was satisfactory. Left feeling full. Waiter was personable and helpful.

We had not been to the Plaza since before Covid and were very happy to find McCormick & Schmick just as outstanding as it has always been. Love it there and plan to return soon.

My wife and I went there for her birthday dinner. The food and service were excellent. We ate inside in the main dining room, which has a stained-glass dome and is beautiful. They brought out a complimentary Creme Broulee with a candle and a birthday greeting at the end of the meal. It was a nice surprise and delicious.

Our server was awesome, but the food quality and the price we were charged was ridiculous! The bread and the cocktails were the best part… so disappointing. We will not be returning to this location.

Have dined at M&S many times for about 20 years. The food is always well presented, flavorful and an enjoyable meal. Many other restaurants do some courses well, but other courses seem to be just so-so or out of a can. The consistency at M&S always pleases. Due to the pandemic, staffing has been a struggle at most restaurants, so some servers even at M&S are inexperienced or not yet fully trained. A minor inconvenience, but the food makes up up for that.

The food was mediocre. They sat us near the kitchen and it was extremely noisy. The service was ok and slow. The sauces were very dry. The calamari was cold. The food used to be very good and it is now sub par. Won’t be going back soon.

We were seated within 2 minutes of our arrival which was great. Our food was very good my only complaint is I just felt my portion was kind of small. I had ordered my meal before and it just seem like a bigger portion.

We met some friends for dinner before the Plaza Art Fair. The food was good, but not especially unique. It’s like any other chain you go to. The service was fabulous! Our waiter Julian was wonderful… had great suggestions! I would return for the great service…

There were two things that were a little off. We had a ton of sand in the mussels we ordered and on the main course, some of the vegetables were under cook, specifically the potatoes that my mom had. But over all a great place to eat. We will be back for sure
