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.

The dining room was arranged in a way to keep each table somewhat private and with more than enough room in between to not be crowded. The staff was friendly, attentive and professional. The food, outstanding (we especially enjoyed the seafood...I ordered the Tuna, it was excellent). The wine-by-the-glass prices were more reasonable than expected. Parking and using the skyway was easy and convenient. Great location. Very enjoyable evening!

Food was amazing and service was perfect. Our drinks never got less than half full,I had my toddler and she was understanding and attentive. The pace was great. I had the Halibut, husband had steak medallions and lobster and mom had salmon and they were delish. We started w calamari, mussels and crab cakes. Yum, crab cakes is a must!!!

We go to McCormick and Schmick's in downtown Minneapolis regularly, particularly for the outdoor Happy Hour in the summer and inside for special occasions throughout the year. The quality of the food and the value are excellent. We always find the host stand and wait staff to be friendly, responsive and efficient.
The current restaurant manager (Paxton) is terrific at his job and a real find for M&S. He is always helpful and fun to talk with. (We have known him for years when he was on the wait staff).
We always recommend M&S to anyone who's looking for a pleasant place to eat - either inside or outside - with great food. My husband says M&S has one of the best hamburgers in town - great recommendation for a seafood restaurant.

We were very disappointed in the Easter Brunch. The Crabcake Benedicts were very average and the plating was boring. The Benedict's were served with a side of bland potatoes, NOTHING great. The warm Sourdough Bread was about the only saving grace.
We always enjoy McCormick Lunches and Happy Hour, so we wrongly figured the Easter Brunch would be delicious. We won't bother to come here again for a special occasion, unless it's Happy Hour. The prices are too steep to be disappointed in the food.
Our server was not especially attentive, as we had to wait for him to come round to order more drinks or food. He was pleasant enough, just unavailable!

Our experience was very nice. We celebrated a birthday but we were all too full when it came time for dessert. Our server was polite and knowledgeable but she did give us her name or I would have included it here.

This was our first time at M & S and we had a great experience. The service was immediate, friendly, helpful and casual. The food was excellent. We learned about the late night happy hour too which we will try sometime...sounds great. Although this place is one of a conglomerate of restaurants all over the country owned by the Landry Corporation, it stood out to us in quality compared to many restaurants in town. We don't normally like these franchise type of places, but they've got it down here. We will definitely be going back!

The service was ok. We ordered a vodka martini and got sprite. Our meal came in the middle of eating our appetizers, a little too fast. I question how much was fresh or “already prepared”. The appetizer (oysters) I order were wrong and they forgot our fries with our meal. Our server was extremely pleasant and got tipped well for clearly a poor experience.

We celebrated my friend’s birthday with dinner, which was delicious. I’ve never had such tender, succulent swordfish. The Wild Isle salmon got a rave review from my friend. We thought we were too full for dessert, and then the waitress brought a lovely creme brulee, which happens to be the birthday girl’s favorite! Great experience— we loved our waitress too. She was delightful, attentive without being obtrusive. Thanks to the entire staff for a lovely celebration!

I have to say that while the ambience was good and the service superb I had trouble seeing anything we ate as truly special. The meat menu was limited, perhaps the restaurant should brand themselves soley for seafood.

My Ribeye was very good. Prepared the way I like it and very tender. However, my wife's meal did not match. She got the McCormick Seafood Trio. Her shrimp were good but the Salmon was under cooked. It tasted fine but she got very sick. It was not the shrimp as I had some and we had no other food. Too bad. Very nice place and the service was excellent. Not sure we will go back. For the same price we could have gone to Fogo De Chow or Manny's.
