The food was not as hyped as I expected. However I do understand I paid for the name. The waitress was very respectable and did her job right.

We came for my boyfriends birthday.
The scotch he wanted wasn’t available and it took them a half hour to figure that out and tell us.
It took FOREVER to get refills and no one checked on us.
The food was okay, but not great. Too salty and not as good as it used to be for the money we paid.
Can’t say that we will be coming back. Too many other places like Chart house that are worth the money.

Anniversary celebration. Landry club member. Monday night so not crowded.

Server was courteous and respectful but nothing special. We did receive a free anniversary ice cream.

Requested no salt. Food was clearly seasoned.

Asked for Diet Coke. Never came. But was charged.

I don't blame the server. Too many tables to cover. Manager never came to see how the meal was.

I get better service at Silver Diner.

It was dinner for three in our family, outside with a view of the the Capital Wheel and the Potomac. Our server Ryan was great--he was friendly, attentive, and got everything right with all of our orders. The food was cooked right, right temperature, and tasted delicious, but considering the price, it's looked pretty plain. The clam chowder was served with plain saltine crackers. There was no garnish or lemon with any of our seafood meals. Tartar sauce was just a dollop on the side of the plate, not even in its own cup or anything. Food items were arranged on the plate, but overall lacked presentation. I didn't consider my food to look like I was fine dining. Total bill for the three of us was $200...without tip. While the price is not a complaint, per se, I have definitely had better meals that looked more appetizing as they were placed down in front of me for much, much less cost. We were on vacation, so this was considered our "splurge meal." In the end, I think we paid more for the location and the M&S brand than for food quality. Again, service was great. Full disclosure - I am a Landry's Club Member.

The food was cold and burnt. I had claim chowder and it wasn't hot. My daughters ordered steaks and they were burnt and the asparagus was burnt also. My wife and I had stuffed salmon it was lukewarm I've had better. We was celebrating our 27 year anniversary and I stated that when I made the reservation and nobody at the restaurant said anything.

For the cost of the food, the quantity/girth of the food is not worth the price. I have visited other seafood restaurants that cost less and I received MORE food than I did at McCormick & Schmick's. That was my birthday dinner and I was hungry after eating there and a little disappointed. I was expecting more.

Our waiter was great! He was very attentive , personable and smelled great as well! He knew his job. I was a little disappointed that one of my favorite menu items was no longer on the menu so he explained that it had been removed since Covid.

Raven , our server, gave us excellent care and attention. She made sure our meals were correct and hot. Our drinks were fantastic. Excellent service all around !
This had nothing to do with Raven, but the only issue we had was that there wasn’t any toilet paper or paper towels in the ladies restroom .

The host and server were very friendly. All of our food was fantastic! I had a ribeye steak and my boyfriend had the filet mignon, both of which were perfectly cooked and flavorful. We went for my birthday and they definitely made me feel special for my day. Thanks to great service from Brittany!
