One of my favorites! 3rd time we’ve eaten here and it’s been perfect every time. Chilean sea bass among best I’ve ever had. Good wine selections. Great atmosphere.

Great service. Fall shaved vegetable salad was excellent. My wife got the organic salmon and it was excellent. Highly recommend. I got the Pistachio Chilean Sea Bass, and it was little rubbery, though the sides were good. Warm bread was good too. I did leave a little hungry though, and had to eat extra food after.

We were here for a pre-race meal with the Philly half marathon the next morning. Dante was fabulous in accommodating my requests. I had the grilled salmon with orzo and my husband had the scallops. Everything was prepared to our satisfaction and the service was great.

Had a wonderful experience. Made reservations for dinner. The walk from our hotel took less time than expected. Arrived 30 minutes early, no problem, was seated right away. The waiter was very helpful and nice, plus knowledgeable about dishes on menu. The food was served in an appropriate time frame and was delicious. The food was fresh, and great combination of seasonal food with different entrees. Upon leaving, the host asked if we had an enjoyable dining experience, we replied yes. He then asked if they had met our expectations. Our reply again was yes. He then thanked us with a follow-up of; hope you have an enjoyable walk back to your hotel, and that we can provide you with another pleasurable dining experience while you are here visiting.

The ambiance and the service were superb, however the food was very pedestrian and ordinary. The entrees came with little if any eye appeal or garnish. The portions were small and not really worth the experience. Sadly we won't be revisiting for a while.

My husband and I were in town for a quick weekend getaway. We had a room downtown and the bartender at our hotel suggested the place. We were able to reserve a table that night. The atmosphere was designed to accommodate a more romantic evening, which was exactly what we wanted. We were early for the reservation, but was seated immediately. The waiter was so nice and made sure to engage us. He went above and beyond when the order was not cooked as requested, and made sure the manager on duty spoke to us and apologized. The waiter made sure we left happy; he boxed my leftover food, and supplied more bread and cutlery. It was the most expensive dinner we have had in a long time, but definitely worth it. When we visit Philly again, we will be back.

PS: The bacon wrapped shrimp was to die for!!!

I was visiting my daughter at Temple University, and we decided to have dinner at a nice restaurant before I returned home. We chose McCormick & Schmick's because of the good reviews on OpenTable.
We were seated quickly. Carol, our waitress, was very friendly and attentive. My daughter had a salad and the American Kobe Style Burger with fries. I had soup and the Seafood Trio. The soup and salad were delivered very quickly, and Carol brought the main course as soon as we finished the first. Carol came back regularly to see if we needed anything. She was very nice!
All in all, it was a fine dining experience, and made me feel better about dropping my daughter off at her dorm before my long trip home.

All 3 seafood selections we had were very good. However, the service was very slow. It was their Veterans Appreciation day (which was nice), but they were woefully unprepared. Overall, I was disappointed.

My husband and I are on a quest to find the "best" high end steakhouse option in the Philly area. Having plans to catch a show at the Merriam left us with the perfect opportunity to check out McCormick & Schmick's. Overall, we really enjoyed our dinner, in spite of it being more crowded and noisier than we expected. I think they were having a dining event for Veterans, so the place was packed. Our server (I think Ryan?) was excellent, and checked often enough that he was available, but not so often that he was intrusive. The food was excellent, if just a tad too salty (steaks) for our personal tastes, but still quite good. We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine with our dinner, and just as a note for the future, please leave the cork on the table (mostly because we save them, but it is a point of presentation when opening a bottle of wine.) Also, if the lady orders the bottle of wine, it is customary to have her taste the wine. These might seem like minor points/gripes, and they are, but points of service are pretty standard. The only real shocking eye opening moment was when the food runner came to the table, and literally threw down our plates...my husband's grilled tomato nearly slid off the plate. We had finished our salads and set them aside to make room for our entrees, yet she failed to clear the salad dishes, and we were left sitting at the table with steaks, but no steak knives, and we couldn't even ask her for a few because she was off like a shot. Ryan was there very quickly with the needed knives however, so it wasn't an issue. All in all, the food was excellent and cooked to proper temperatures. They have a nicely sized wine list with selections in all price ranges. Maybe on a quieter night we'd have had a better overall experience--Ryan really was on point. It wasn't a bad meal necessarily, but it didn't leave us with an exceptional impression either. They do steaks well, as they should.

Was there with my sons and girlfriend for dinner. The service was good. I order the trout, unfortunately it came out late, and was very dry and flavorless. My son order the Salmon with asparagus and beets, it came out with string beans and mashed potato's. Being it was already late coming out, (the waiter came out and apologized, and took our order again) and said would bring out some appetizer's on the house, he came back with hummus, and two of us do not eat hummus. When the dinner finally arrived, I took two bites of my dinner, and pushed the plate away. My son had about half of his Salmon and quit. Been here many times with vendors from the office, this was by far the worst. Unfortunately I will not be coming back. Just made reservations to Del Frisco's, I never had a bad meal at Del Frisco's.

I brought 2 friends who were veterans for dinner, they were treated with respect and thought they had great service which was not rushed. Meals were well cooked and had a good presentation. The apple pie dessert was to die for. Our waiter who was quite busy with other large tables was as attentive as he could be. I have not been here before but we all agreed that we would come back for a regular lunch or dinner.

Our server (Mark) was exceptional! I had the lobster bisque and it was delicious! Best I've ever had. I was also able to get a small dish of their Shrimp & Andouille Mac & Cheese. Out of this world !!! My dinner, albeit good, came out cold. Trying to reheat filet and stuffed shrimp is not an easy task. The Mac & Cheese made up for the cold dinner. Overall, we had a very nice evening and shared a great bottle of wine! I wold go back again in spite of the temperature of my dinner.

We've been to other examples of this group of restaurants, and been very pleased with the experience. This time, despite a terrific menu, this one wasn't at all pleasant. Way too much loud background music, very noisy, and the table service was very poor. It took over an hour to get our entree, the drink orders were likewise delayed, and tables around us remained uncleared long after the diners had departed.
