    Went here for my girlfriend birthday and we loved it! Great atmosphere and the service was great except we told the server no asparagus and he bought anyway. But quickly followed up with some string beans! He was amazing! Wish I remembered his name. Food was great! I would definitely recommend here for a special occasion! They are pricey lol

    The food was great: our server so friendly and helpful although clearly new. The music was all over the place and I like all kinds of music but McCormicks and Schmick’s needs to find its vibe. Highly recommend!!!

    Everything about this place is mediocre. The mussels were small and lacking flavor. The Parmesan crusted flounder was dry, overcooked and I couldn’t taste a hint of Parmesan. The drinks were weak and the service was slow. The waiter shouldn’t take an order from another table while the check for my table is in his pocket and I am waiting for it. Also, don’t make me box up the leftovers; this isn’t Applebees. The noise level is too high since it is one large open room. In short there are much better choices in Philly. Keep walking.

    Our waiter was new but knowledgeable and his recommendations were good— the strawberry Palmer and caprese salad. The swordfish dinner was overpowered by the butter sauce—— I had to ask for a saucer to move the fish and crab casino. The crab casino was salty and inedible. The spinach and mushrooms were great, outside the overpowering butter sauce. My husband enjoyed his burger and lobster bisque. Service was great from beginning to end.

    We came for a later dinner and were not disappointed. Good seafood, quick, attentive service, and the only complaint is that they are a bit pricey.

    Very disappointing visit; in town for convention; made reservation for 12:30 so we can be back at convention. At 1:30, server informed us our ticket got lost in the kitchen. Manager made many excuses blaming the convention, school graduation, etc. we gobbled food at 2:00 and requested check; original check only hade appetizers assumed mgt is picking up other items. Provided serve credit cards, she returns processing full check with only 25% discount. I asked where was original ticket provided, everyone pretended I made up the original ticket. Bad experience to say the least?

    The Lobster Bisque was wonderful, except the croutons were over toasted and on the edge of tasting burnt. The walnut salad was flavorful, with just the right balance of flavors. They were out of the $29.00 NY strip, so if I wanted a steak (which is what I went to M&S for). I was forced to order the $32.00 filet. It was cooked perfectly to my order, but not as flavorful as a NY Strip. We were asked if we wanted mashed potatoes or something else as a side (which we thought meant it came with the steak), so we ordered the cooked spinach, and we ordered a shared side of Asparagus. We were charged an additional fee for the spinach and the expected fee for the Asparagus. Unfortunately the spinach was so heavy with garlic that the spinach flavor was impossible to taste. The Asparagus was undercooked and tough. The wines were fabulous and the creme brûlée was good, but nothing to make me order it again. Our waitress was wonderful. All in all I have to give a 50/50 to the experience. It was not as good as I expected, but not as bad as it might have been.

    We were in town for July 4, and took our son out to eat. This restaurant is very attractive and the food was excellent. However, the background music distracted from the environment; they were playing an eclectic pop mix. Personally, I would have preferred classical string quartets or smooth jazz. Our waitress was okay but not attentive, even though there were only a few tables occupied. She didn’t refill my water and was nowhere to be found when it was empty, so finally I went to the men’s room to get more water.

    The server was good. I just think over priced for no reason at all. Some food was not good . We order fried calamari it came with cabbage and host of other things. Also the wait for appetizers was ridiculously we waited for ever for soup and salad I mean the calamari came out first. The soup and salad came about twenty minutes later. Just not the same

    The food was amazing and presented well. Our server however was another story. I don't think she was typical of the restaurant but she served our drinks and apps and never came back for our entree order until we asked for her. She never refilled our water glasses and she brought a shareable dessert with no plates, forks, etc.

    Took my boyfriend out for Father’s Day, & was highly disappointed. We waited 45 mins to be seated. The manager and host had very Poor customer service skills. There was no waiting area. No apology from the staff. Then when I received my food the lobster mashed was cold. Will not be returning. Highly don’t recommend.

    Decor was pleasant. Staff was friendly, but rarely checked in on us. We repeatedly has to ask for our water glasses to be refilled. Our main course arrived before they cleared they cleared the table from our appetizer and salad. Bread, calamari, and salad were quite good but we were disappointed with the entrees. The steak was tough and the fish was overcooked and dry. The sides were uninspiring. After the disappointment of the entree and waiting for about 15 minutes to get the dessert menu, we decided to pass on the dessert and just stop somewhere for ice cream.

    We didn’t get any water for almost a half hour or any waitress. We ordered drinks in one of the party out of two got the wrong drink. It was pretty noisy because of a couple of large groups and then small groups were talking loud to be able to be heard over the large groups. So it was really quite noisy noisy. Food was good. Probably give the place a second chance and see if they normally have large groups in the main dining area.

    We made a date night reservation to celebrate our anniversary. We showed up early and seated right away. We then sat at the table for over 20 minutes and wasn't until I asked the lady at host stand before we got service and she was a bit curt. We then got a server named Kya who was absolutely amazing and made up for the first 30 minutes, food was great but we expect better service than waiting for menus and drinks.

    Terrible in every way!!! Table was not ready in a mostly empty restaurant. Staff was rude. I had indicated on my reservation that it was a special bday. They sat us next to a 20 person corporate dinner so it was loud. We asked to move. “No” was the answer. Just a lousy night out. The managers on staff should be fired.
