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.

I arrived for my appointment at 8:05pm. The manager told me once I checked in that he's closing the resturant due to little or not enough customers and that I should come another time. He made this decision an hour prior to my reservation and never called. While I stood at the door to check for other restaurant openings one of the workers told the manager that "he should offer for me to return another day and provide a meal on him and that it would be a classy move to do so" (he didn't know how close I was standing at the moment). He gave me a card and said give me a call "if" you decide to come back and I'll give you an appetizer no charge! Still never recieved an apology or anything. I can understand the concern with the pandemic but it doesn't stop common courtesy.

Good service in a nice restaurant, but completely underwhelming food and above average prices.

Prices reasonable, good ambiance, great service! Compared to other choices in downtown Minneapolis, this is great! Get some gift cards at Costco for an extra 20% off!

Food was just average. Serving size of vegetables was tiny. Had to ask the server for bread. Seemed overpriced for the quality of food n

The waiter was great. Steak over cooked (I asked for medium) scallops also over cooked. The stuffed shrimp were awesome. Hoping that we just experienced an off night for the restaurant.

Overall the food and service was good. I was disappointed that a signature drink (M&S) they make couldn’t be made because they didn’t have one of the key ingredients!!

Requested burger to be well done or medium well done and it was RARE. French fries were underdone and not served hot.

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.

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.
