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.

Amazing experience. Everything Derek suggested we ordered and fell in love with, especially the Fish he completely suggested and we enjoyed. Best meal we’ve had in a long time. Glad we made the stop in. Thanks again Derek for the Amazing Service. - Serge Felix - Remax Performance - Winnipeg MB

Quickly greeted and promptly seated. Waiter Frank was very helpful in describing the menu choices and making suggestions.Pan seared bar was good but thought the accompaniments were a bit mismatched. Great desserts.

I brought business clients and my boss to dinner there. It was excellent. Quiet enough we could talk. So comfortable and relaxing. We did not want to leave. The food was delicious and everything that we had was perfect. Our Waiter was friendly and made good recommendations.

Lobster bisque was amazing! Steak and sea bass were also delicious. A bit pricey but great for an occasional visit.

I certainly am going back soon. I was very impressed with the service. Our waitress was so attentive. It's been a long time since I had such superior service. The food quality was great, tastiest fries and we actually had dessert which was rare for us and what a treat.

It was actually an afterthought to try McCormick's and Schmick's, so glad we did.

As with most McCormick and Schmick restaurants, the food is always dependable. I had the Blacken Chicken Fettuccine--spicy and delicious. The only set back was that our server spilled the salt, pepper and table light...and then didn't really apologize.

We had an amazing dinner with our family. We requested a private table and were seated in a lovely booth. Derrick was our server and he was phenomenal! Very knowledgeable about all the menu options as well as the wines. Whatever we requested he never said it couldn’t be done. He even had a special horseradish sauce made for one of our entrees! Overall we had a spectacular evening. Don’t hesitate to enjoy a special evening at McCormick & Schmick’s.

We came to celebrate our anniversary. They greeted us with a specially printed menu wishing us a happy anniversary and also gave us a complimentary dessert. It was such a nice touch, we were very impressed! Our server was very attentive and the manager even stopped at our table to speak to us. Overall, we had a wonderful dinner experience.

We had a nice relaxing dinner on the patio on a beautiful September evening. The service was exceptional. We had wine, an appetizer, and both had the scallop entree. The food was beyond wonderful. We also had a sweet little lava cake dessert that was just the perfect way finish our evening.

Went there for my boyfriends birthday on a Sunday evening. Very nice, quiet romantic atmosphere. Was looking for good seafood options as my boyfriend loves scallops. Ordered the seared scallops and featured Hawaiin fish with side of brussel sprouts and potatoes. Brussel sprouts and potatoes were well seared in your classic savory, balsamic vinaigrette sauce. Delicious! Scallops and fish were lightly seasoned and cooked in butter sauce. Scallops could have been browned a little more for that light crisp texture and fish could have used a little more seasoning. Our waiter was wonderful! Very attentive throughout the meal and knowledgeable about wine pairing options. Good place to consider for that special occasion.

Lovely place, great server, extremely boring and overpriced food. Bland and pretty much flavorless. For $200 for three people the food should have been on point.

Overall the restaurant was good. Service was better than good but not great. Food was OK, probably not worth the price we paid - although that area of Minneapolis that the restaurant is in is not known for low cost eateries. The worst problem was that the three-item seafood plate was very oily/buttery.

We ate at McCormick & Schmick’s before seeing the Mark Knopfler concert last Friday night. We have been to other McCormick & Schmick’s in Troy, Michigan and Chicago in the past so we were not surprised that our dinner was wonderful. I had the salmon and my wife had the walleye, both perfectly prepared. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return.

It was a perfect celebration for my husband's 60 birthday with our daughter and son-in-law. Our waiter was very nice and knowledgeable, the food is very fresh and tasty, plus my husband enjoyed his complimentary small birthday cake with a candle. Of course the prices are on a higher end but you can spoil yourself once in a while.

Service was good. Some entrees were so, so considering the price. Scallops weren’t very flavorful- didn’t care for how they were served. Shrimp Kisses were the best item among the four of us.

Great menu. Friendly staff. Loved the king crab and that it was cut open already. It said it came with roasted potatoes , but it actually came with like 4 roasted potatoes in a heaping pile of red onions which was gross and no one informed us that would be on the plate

The service and ambiance were very good; our waiter was very attentive and even made sure a fresh pot of coffee was brewed.

The same cannot be said for the other wait staff who were either in too much of a hurry to clear plates from home the table or too busy to notice an empty water glass.

As for food, the lobster Cobb salad was good, but not great. The ahi tuna was almost melt in your mouth tender and the wasabi infused mashed potatoes were delicious.

We were seated where we hoped but the service was slow. The server was delightful. The caprese salad was not good. The mozzarella was tough and lacked flavor. The tomatoes also lacked flavor. The presentation was not inspired. The mashed potatoes were great and the key lime pie was very good. So, it was a mixed experience. But our server was great.

Service was very slow. I finished my drink slowly and it took over 15 minutes for the Waitress to come back. ( Several times.) I'm a really good tipper and they were tipped very poorly. The food took over 1/2 hour to get to us as well. I also had to find her to pay my Bill. I actually used cash so I could get out of there quicker so I wouldn't have to wait.

Great service, was very thoughtful to have a greeting on our menu for our anniversary. It was convenient to our hotel and theater. Food was delicious. Would rather not have the calories of desserts printed on the menu. Maybe have it available on request. Wonderful experience.
