    Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to taste the food. We sat down around 7:20 and by 7:50 we still did not receive any water. It initially took over 10 minutes from the time we sat down for anyone to acknowledge us. After over 25 minutes of waiting, we told the hostess that we were leaving as we were still waiting for water after 25 minutes (the water, not what I ordered to drink, came while my husband was explaining to the hostess that we were leaving). I am not used to walking out, and I dine quite often. I hate that we had to do this, but by the time we left it was almost 8pm, and there was no way we would could just sit there for who knows how long without any explanation etc.

    Food was mediocre for the price point. Staff most likely were overworked due to the conference. Red Lobster would have been better.

    They were only offering a Prix Fixe menu for Mother's Day which was not relayed to us when the reservations were made or confirmed. Half of the items on that limited menu were not available. My steak was raw and my salad was warm like it had been sitting under the heat lamp. My husband's steak was burnt in some places and raw in others.

    We have been to this restaurant twice this time being the 3rd we enjoyed the food and service a lot the first two times but this time i took my wife for Mother’s Day seeing how we are expecting a baby , we ordered and our waiter seemed unhappy or like she had an attitude she wasn’t really putting to much effort , we ordered a salad but as an app and we got it with our main course we were hungry especially my pregnant wife when we got our steaks we asked about our salad then it was brought to us later . When we got our desserts after some time of eating our waiter came by with our check didn’t even ask if we needed boxes for our desert or anything no refills checks nothing , another waiter saw we needed refills and he helped us out .not a great experience

    This was not the best visit to M&S -especially on a day like Mother's Day. My mom was very displeased with her experience/slow service provided. We were at table 301 and although it was a fixed menu; our server forgot to bring 2 of the soups when I ordered them on behalf of the entire table. Our drinks came out one at a time and we ordered a bottle of wine with our meals. My partner ordered the filet mignon yet no steak knife was given with the food. It took our server so long to retrieve a knife- we flagged another staff member who brought one over expeditiously. Of course our server then showed up with a knife; sees we have one and says "oh they brought one". At this point, we had to get our desserts to go because we had a concert to attend and that took forever. The cherry on top of a mediocre Mother's Day meal/service is; while in the restroom, my mother and I saw a staff member come out of a stall (toilet flushed), bypassed the sink and walked right out the bathroom! We looked in horror and I opened the door to call out to her but she had already turned the corner. This was not a waiter/server but one of the bussers/runners (black apron/white shirt). To say we were utterly disgusted at this point was an understatement. I tried to give the benefit of the doubt from my server's "lack of" service, to the slow wait times to the holiday rush/maybe short staffed/backlog in the kitchen etc., however none of that should have impacted my dining experience and it did so it was reflected as such in her tip.

    My reservation was at 1:45pm and was dining alone. I arrived about 1:50pm and was seated immediately. I sat for about 20 minutes before a server approached me to take my order. I ordered the Mother's Day 3-course meal (starter, entree and desert). After another 30 to 45 minutes my entree (scallops and risotto) arrived. I informed the kitchen runner that brought my food, that I had not received my starter yet. She responded "So, you do not want your entree now?" I indicated no, I would like my starter. Another 15 minutes goes by and I asked for the manager. I informed him that I had been sitting for over an hour and not received any food, my server had not checked on me since he took my order, my entree came out before my starter; however, I was now concerned that my entree would take another hour. The manager indicated that they could not correct what happened in the past but would try to do better going forward. I finally received my starter; shortly after receiving my starter, I received my entree (scallops and risotto). The scallops were cold and gritty with every bite. I believe this was the entree that was originally brought out to me. I did not eat the remaining food . I sat for another 15-20 minutes, then my server asked what desert I would like. I ordered desert, which was excellent but took another 20 minutes. The manager only charged me for my dessert and my drink; however, this was not a good experience.

    Calamari’s was lukewarm. We sent it back. I ordered seafood Fettuccine …20 minutes later…waitress returns with bad news. No seafood Fetuccine. So I reordered…Walnut Salad with chicken. Basically, lettuce with warm chicken on top. Lacked presence and taste. My partner order a $40 dish seafood (swordfish) that came with a tablespoon of spinach and mushrooms. No starch!!!!! It was my partners 60th birthday. There was no desserts in the menu. Ughhh! So…the nice waitress provide a free crème brûlée. Not my thing but my partner enjoyed it. So many great restaurant at the harbor. Will not return to MS.

    This was sub par. Cold steaks and 50min waits for food. The server was very sincere and apologetic however it should not get to that point. We sent back 2 meals. The others people were willing to eat after waiting so long for food.

    We loved everything! The only reason there are not 5’s across the board is because all of us were literally stuck to the floor. Upon entering the tiled area at the host/hostess stand, our shoes were literally stuck to the floor. Fortunately we decided to eat outside where it was a little less sticky. Food and service were outstanding! Cocktails were delicious!

    Brought my mom here to enjoy a nice Mother's day lunch. We were sadly disappointed. Mia, our server was excellent, very attentive and kind. The wait for our food was crazy, almost an hour to get our food. Then the quality of the food was terrible. McCormick is supposed to be a seafood restaurant, but the crab cake sandwich was really subpar for such a high end restaurant. The fish and chips was so greasy and salty I could hardly eat it. And let's talk about the chicken sandwich. A frozen chicken blob that was microwaved is what it seemed like. I expected better from McCormick and Schmits.

    We arrived early and sat at the bar. The staff was loud and inattentive. We enjoyed our meals - filet and shrimp was delicious! Our waitress did a good job - she was just very busy! Wouldn’t go for a special occasion as the ambiance is a bit chaotic.

    For $660, I was very disappointed with my food. My son’s appetizer was better than my meal. The servers were good but again for the money I spent, I was not impressed and embarrassed that my son will remember his 18th birthday with mediocre food for a high price. The staff was wonderful I must say. Very attentive but my mom was not aware that her sides would cost extra to change them. She would have gotten a salad had she known. I went for the experience for my son. Won’t be returning ever. The food is significantly overpriced.

    Very good food and service. We had Crystal as out server and she brought energy, happiness and passion to providing a great experience for our group. There was a mix up in the kitchen and our skillet cookie dessert was given to another table so we had to wait extra. She noticed and told the manager, the manager came by apologized and even comp the delicious cookie desert from our bill. More than the food, it was a 10/10 service. Would definitely be back.

    Our wait staff was pleasant, professional and did a good job. As for service by the kitchen fair: my husband was served his entree while I was still eating my salad; my entree was eventually provided by our wait staff. The food was warm, not hot as it should have been. Obviously the kitchen and management were lacking and needs to improve. We WILL NOT dine at this again.

    When I lived in Baltimore in the early 90's I ate at McCormick and Schmick's numerous times. It was also fabulous. So when I was looking for a halfway point to meet an old friend for lunch we settle on this location. I live Maryland crabcaks and never order crabcakes in a restaurant unless I'm in Maryland. The crabcake was one of the worst I've ever eaten. The crab tasted more like canned crab. The menu said lump cake meet but this was definitely back fin meat. The texture was almost gooey. Very disappointing. The service was great! Very attentive and welcoming.

    Party of 7, client dinner, service outside, friendly staff, and that’s the positive. I am unsure where the breakdown was but drink order took a long time to be brought to the table, not all the drinks were as ordered, bread service did not happen until after the entrees arrived, appetizers and entrees were ordered at the same time with understanding they would arrive separately, they did not and the dinner order was in complete. One guest wasn’t notified their order wasn’t possible until after another all other guests were served. Overall, dinner was a mess, and I will not be bringing clients to this location again.

    Food was good despite several items on the menu not being available. We ordered items twice only for the server to come back and say they were not available. Wine list was limited, but had some good options. Bread service was extremely slow. Music volume and crowd noise made it difficult to talk across the table.

    Our server was very nice, positive, friendly, good memory for what we wanted. Waited a while for drinks, both alcohol and coffee. Dinner came out while still eating appetizers. Both were tasty. Whole evening was poorly paced. Chocolate mouse pie was dense and unappealing. Coffee was cold.
