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.

Food was outstanding! Filet mignon tender and smooth as butter. Stuffed salmon to die for! Best fathers day meal by far !

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.

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.

Chose McCormicks for our anniversary dinner; it was a total bust! I arrived ahead of my husband and asked to sit at the bar until my husband showed since they would not seat me without him present. The bar seating area was better than the general seating area because it was nicely lit and we had an outside view. However, the tables did not have tablecloths and they were sticky which we both noticed right away! The food was okay but that’s just it it was okay. Our waitress was accommodating when we told her we would like to go back to the bar area to have our meal, but the service was nothing above ordinary! Restaurant needs a total makeover!!! We left feeling like we overpaid because we did not experience five star dining!

Horrible experience! First of all I was overcharged! The manager did not fix it and was no help. Our server was slow and the fish was dry. Would not recommend.

This was a family outing for lunch during restaurant week. The food selection had enough options. The food was really good with nice size portions. All drink 🍹 options were not available, but the waiter was attentive and created the drinks my Mom & Aunt was looking for.
Parking is just a little difficult to find /pricey.
Great time!

Our second visit within two weeks became a disappointment. The entree was smaller and presented in a bowl rather than plated like on our first visit. The second visit also had dessert issues where the creme brulee was runny and warm even after it was replaced with another serving. We should not have returned so quickly ordering exactly the same options.

Food was top notch! Host was friendly and kind. Sever was prompt attentive and knowledgeable. Recommended dessert off menu excellent choice.

However all of this could have been ruined by Awful unclean bathrooms! Male and female horrible. I expect better on next visit. If not better will be last visit to that location.

We went for Restaurant week lunch and was charged the dinner prices and when I tried to get in contact with someone there, they never answered the phones so I gave up and took the loss.

First time here, I wanted to give a 5 star rating, but the fish was really overcooked. Instead of a nice char, it tasted burnt and one end of it was so dry I could make knocking sounds with my fork. We told our server who said she would inform the kitchen, but nothing else happened.
We figured maybe because of restaurant week prices, they didn't care, but my friends and I use restaurant week to find places to eat that we would gladly pay full price for.
Unfortunately, I don't think we'll be back.
Our server was very friendly, efficient and quick. The atmosphere was relaxing. The shining star of the evening was the vanilla bean creme brulee!

The food was nice, but the amount was small. The drinks were super expensive for no reason. And for a place that's supposed to be somewhat upscale the Woman's bathroom was disgusting.
