About McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Minneapolis

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 flounder was overcooked and tasted like dry tuna. The fillet ordered medium rare was overcooked the ends and probably medium in the middle. Waitstaff reached across the table over our diners heads repeatedly. When one of our diners went to the bathroom she came and cleared his spot taking his food along with the bread for the table when we were not done.

All in all a mediocre experience for a downtown restaurant. Totally expected more from this place especially for $200 for four diners

Beautiful restaurant, but cozy with alot of wood. The menu had a variety of choices, and pricing was good. There were 8 of us and everyone enjoyed the meal they ordered, most everyone did have seafood. Service was great, it was a busy evening, but it did quiet down.

My birthday was spent in the company of a friend of 30 years and we/I choose this restaurant not only for the top notch food, but also for the spot on service. Our waiter Joel was knowledgeable, poised, and an excellent salesman. If you are ever in downtown Minneapolis it would be worth your while to visit here.

It was an okay Thanksgiving meal—not spectacular. The pumpkin pie was the worst I’ve ever had. The waitress was very nice but didn’t check on our table too often. I’m unsure if she just had too many tables to handle or if she wasn’t trying that hard. The meal was acceptable but will explore other restaurants when in Minneapolis.

We were there for Thanksgiving. We had mussels and an entree of crab and shrimp stuffed salmon. Everything was delicious and the salmon was melt in the mouth tender. Our server Joey was wonderful.

Reserved for Thanksgiving brunch, based on delightful holiday brunch menu posted on web page for this location. Emailed the brunch menu to family members joining us. Extraordinarily disappointed to arrive and find out brunch is not offered at this location. Server mentioned there should have been fine print on website to call restaurant to confirm menu. Didn't see it and wouldn't have thought it necessary. Mgr apologized, but didn't seem that concerned. Simple fix by webmaster could have prevented such a disappointment. Lovely setting. Food quality was good. Service was good, not great. Just not the experience we had been looking forward to.

The only negative was the menu stated the price of my meal as $17.00 but I was charged $18.00. It would have been great if the waitress picked up on that prior to the bill arriving. I chose to let it go.

The positive was the ambience is great and the energy within this venue is very good.

Biggest issues were: First, had reservation, was there 15 minutes early, and was seated 20 minutes after our reservation. And noted 4 empty tables around us when seated.
And, second, the staff seemed completely disorganized with people milling around EVERYWHERE. At one time, there were 7 waiters, managers, clearing staff all hovering over a table in the middle of the room. Seemed chaotic and really wrecked the mood for us and many around us.

First time to the restaurant. Service was exceptional. Drinks were amazing. Unfortunately the steak recommended was not very good. The New York Strip was done to order but it was the least tasty steak I can remember ever having. It looked great but no flavor. Server insisted on making a different steak and the Rib Eye was very nice. Thanks for the hospitality:-)

The food was excellent. We went on Sunday because they were giving free entrees to veterans. I don't think they were totally prepared for the crowd. We had to wait 15 minutes after our reservation time. The waiter appeared almost immediately after we were seated to take our drink offer. We asked for a few minute or two to look at the drink menu and he disappeared for over 15 minutes.

What a great tribute to all the veterans on Saturday, Nov. 5th. Though there was a small wait for our 5:15 table, the hostesses did a great job of working through the enormous number of people who showed up for this annual occasion. According to the hostesses they had reservations for 650+ last night!!! The table was great, our server, Mitchell was spot on with recommendations and attentiveness. The food was delicious and hot, no small feat when you saw how many meals were being prepared out of their kitchen. I have never been disappointed when dining at M&S. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you to McCormick and Schmecks for such a great evening. This event makes your restaurant an easy choice when considering where to eat in downtown Mpls. throughout the rest of the year!

We were there for their Veteran's Day dinner where they provide 'thank you ' meals to vets. And thank you for doing that, it is appreciated. Still, that 'free' dinner cost me $150 to share an evening with my wife, having a bottle of wine and desert. Food is very good, prepared and served well. Service was good considering they were short staffed so the poor gal who served us had to work hard to keep us old guys and gals taken care of. Dinner was about right quantity for the meal, but since we were saving room for desert, we did bring home enough for a meal. They are not inexpensive, but it is a nice meal and made for a good evening.

My husband went here before a concert. We had the best service. Our waitress was attentive, but not overbearing. The food was all delicious. We had a crap cake appetizer that was very good. We ordered an entire tray of oysters on the half shell and they were so good. Perfectly prepared. We both really enjoyed our entrees. I had scallops and he had ahi tuna. And then for dessert we had creme brulee. Everything was fabulous. We kind of splurged because we don't get to go out on dates much and it was well worth it!
