We enjoyed everything about the restaurant except when we first checked in. The young lady did not greet us with a hello. The first thing she said was do you have a reservation in a tone like she thought we did not have a reservation. She seemed frazzled once I said yes we have a reservation. After our encounter with her everything else was excellent. Drinks and food were good. Our server Zav was perfect. We will be back!

I was a regular here for years, but haven’t been since the pandemic. Service and quality have definitely suffered. I hope things turn around soon.

Slow service, when we finally ordered they didn’t have what I wanted so I had to settle for stuffed salmon which was supposed to be stuffed with shrimp & crab but it was more dried tomatoes than anything. My son ordered steak and fries, fries were not hot or good. Overall, for my birthday dinner it was a let down

The waiter and manager were very nice. The food was not what I was used to having there. I have been several times before. We did have a large party. The food was not hot and the stuffed salmon and chicken plates looked they they had been sitting for a while before coming out. The kids chicken fingers were hard for them to eat, too hard and crunchy.

The food was Subpar. I ordered stuffed salmon and I barely had stuffing, couldn't taste the Brie cheese, salmon was not tender, mashed potatoes were bland and greens beans were bland. The presentation was juvenile at best. Won't be going back

Wow, this one in Philly is probably the worst Mccrmick and Schmick's of all. I have been to many of them from Manhattan Beach, Portland to DC. My son's medium Filet Mignon came out bleeding red and braised rib came out so cold that it’s colder than the plate it was on. We returned and they had to recook my son’s steak and “microwave” my braised beef. Isnt seafood and “steak” their specialty? Looks like they have no clue how to cook. I asked many of their staff for water and it took a very very long time to finally get a glass of water. Most upscale restaurants leave you with a bottle of water but not this. So the next day we didnt go back, I took my son to Fogo De Chao and spent $285.

A wonderful young man, Amir, was in training with our server. He made the evening even more enjoyable.
The wine, the food, the service, all very good, but this young man was a joy. His personality, his smile, his conversations, all a step above.
Thank you Amir for making our evening all the more wonderful!

We were placed in an isolated area upstairs. There was plenty of available dining downstairs, and we did have advance reservations. It was not and stuffy upstairs. I am not sure why they seated us where they did.

Wait staff is phenomenal but the prices seem wacky compared to the food presented. My partner ordered the Seared Ahi Tuna with Cucumber Salad and Sticky Rice, but it was more akin to deconstructed sushi complete with ginger & wasabi with a stack of regular rice and a handful of sesame seeds. There weren't even any cucumbers.

The Lobster Bisque I had was excellent, the Oysters my partner had made her very happy, and the Calamari we shared was actually the best Calamari we've had, so that's all very good.

The Burger is just too heavy. I went through several emotions as I progressed through the sandwich starting from happy and ending with despair.

The chocolate cake was also ridiculously heavy.

I suppose some of these come down to personal preference and taste, but we both feel that the seared Ahi Tuna dish was straight up miscommunicated by the menu and fiddled with our expectations unpleasantly.

Small portions and food wasn’t seasoned. I had the stuffed salmon with mash and green beans, the mashed potatoes were the best thing on the plate. My wife had the shrimp linguine which was also bland… it was our first time there and more than likely our last !

We arrived for our reservation and seated at our table within 5 minutes of arrival. This was about the only efficiency of the night. We sat at our table for 25 minutes without any contact from anyone. I went to reception to ask for the manager and proceeded to explain no one had come to our table. It was another 10 minutes before a server came to take our drink order and another 15 before the manager showed up. She explained they were short staffed and was sorry for the delay. While I get these are unusual times, not one server nor the manager showed any sense of urgency, care or worry about the lack of service. We had a late 8:45pm reservation, if it had been earlier we would have walked out and never looked back. On a brighter note, the food was excellent the kitchen staff out did themselves, this at least made the experience a little more tolerable. The Manager did take our appetizer off the bill and comped our dessert which was appreciated. All in all the service did not live up to this restaurant’s reputation. I hope the front of the house gets their act together.

Good. String beans were under cooked and the appetizer Caesar salad was so delicious, a larger portion would have great.

Oh my god. Me and my girlfriend was on the verge of crying from how amazing the food was. We had lobster tails and steak and it was out of this world. The drinks were delicious. The service was out of this world. We were in heaven. Our server made us feel so comfortable and appreciated. I truly can’t remember the last time I had such a perfect dining experience. If I lived in Philadelphia, I would come here for date night every chance I get.
