Seafood
Unique to Minneapolis, the restaurant has several "snugs" (private booths for six with draperies) in the formal dining room. The handsome interior features handcrafted mahogany, stained glass (depicting Minnesota heritage), brass accents, and Tiffany-style lamps lending a traditional note to the interior. McCormick & Schmick's also features a lively bar experience, with a bar staff that practices traditional mixology -- hand-shaken cocktails using only bottled sodas, freshly squeezed juices and premium liquors.

Food was delicious! Manager seemed more interested in the staff than the customers. He didn’t look is in the eye, but spoke to us while watching his associates. Waitress was extremely pleasant, but made no suggestions or recommendations. Service was adequate, but not exceptional.

The food was, as usual, extraordinary. The seared tuna is just a delight and the oysters just make you smile.

My husband and I went for Valentines Day. I had the stuff salmon, my husband had the lobster tails and with lobster bisque mashed potatoes. I thought it was life over all. My husband feels like it should have had a better presentation for it being Valentines Day. The food was great!! Our server had personality. I’ll go again.

It was my first time there and first experience. I ordered a ribeye and asked for mediums well and came out and wasn’t medium well, it was medium rare. They took it to kitchen and made me a second plate. The ribeye was way too over done cook. Overall we did spike to the manager about the situation and got the meal taken off our tab.

After making a reservation and requesting a nice table we got to the restaurant at the time of our reservations and ended up waiting about 18 minutes. Then were sat at a table in the middle of the back room, one of several that had been open sense we arrived. The waiter was on his own agenda, spewing wine recommendations even though we can not drink wine. The food, as always was very good. I had the steak and lobster and my wife had the scalps.

Probably the worst experience I've had at a McCormick & Schmick's. Service from our waittress was the lone bright spot. Food was meh, we were seated in an over flow area, which was horrible. Probably our own fault, never, ever go out on valentine's day.

It's spendy, but also the best filet mignon I've had in my life! And the truffle chive mashed potatoes are totally worth the upcharge!

I always enjoy visiting your establishment, however where I was seated this time was in a high traffic area. Every time somebody came into the door I froze my butt every time somebody came into the door we got a pretty good blast of cold air . Our server was fantastic the food was great look forward to visiting again sometime soon hopefully seated elsewhere and I know reservations takes the precedence over tables that are left. Until next time my friends have a wonderful day !

Took my daughter to McCormick & Schmick's Seafood for her birthday. Food and service were excellent. Everything was perfect. I ordered the strip steak, my wife the shrimp, and my daughter the shrimp combo. It was all perfect as was the service.

Food was delicious, service was good for as busy as it was, when I made the reservation I requested a booth we ended up at a table, but it was very nice as well. We will definitely go back.

Fabulous food and service. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and they brought her a free creme brulee with a candle. Waiter recommended a great wine to go with our meals.

The seafood in the signature dish contain hardly any fish; no scallop as was shown in the picture; mussels were the smallest I have seen; the little clams were closed shut and hard to crack open. The seafood was served in minestrone broth without any taste.
No wet towel was provided to clean after using hands to help cracking the clam or a portion of the crab leg served.

The wasabi mashed potatoes did seem to have any wasabi. The Lobster bisque was too salty.

The service was great.

Had a business lunch here and enjoyed it. The clam chowder was excellent! Ceasar salad lacked flavor but my guest had a custom steak salad and he enjoyed it. We each had dessert. He enjoyed the Keylime Pie and I loved the creme brulee. It ended up being a pricey lunch. Zak, our server was very good with food suggestions and attention. I would go there again but not on a regular basis due to price.

Food was tasty but under seasoned. Tuna was a bit over done....not rare.

Our group was celebrating a special occasion and we received excellent service( although I find the use of “my dear” by waitstaff to be patronizing. As middle-aged women, we expect terms of endearment from family and friends, not servers.) The ambiance was pleasant and staff were all attentive. Our entire table ordered seafood, both appetizers and main courses. The lobster bisque, clam chowder and mussels appetizer were agreed to be tasty by our group, but our main courses, though among the most expensive on the menu, were unexceptional. I would say that I have had better, more creatively prepared seafood around town in other places for a much better value. I wouldn’t come here again to celebrate, it’s probably much better suited for a business lunch.

We love this restaurant and have always enjoyed delicious food, well prepared as well as excellent service. Tonight we asked that our entree be prepared differently from the menu - and it came exactly as we’d asked. The ambience suits fine dining with its dark wood yet modern feeling dining areas.

Waited 25 minutes for our first drinks. Server apologized but did not offer to make it right. Steak was medium well even though I ordered medium rare. Ordered mashed potato side & got 3 asparagus spears instead. Not a good experience.

Went with my husband on NYE. We made our reservation early enough to avoid the rush so it was quiet and the service was great. The food and drinks were great. It was pricey but worth it!

This place is fancy. The food tastes good and it’s fancy. The service was courteous, friendly & fancy. The seating was nicely spaced, comfortable, and fancy. The drink menu had lots of great options for any pallet, but I was happy to see that some of the options were fancy.
