The fish (Chilean sea bass) was outstanding. The sides are subpar.

McCormick and Schmicks in the Southside is a family favorite for a night out. Everything from the service to ambiance is wonderful and enjoyable. The food is always done to perfection and the service exceptional.

I had a very large ceasar salad, an excellent blackened sea bass, with sides of green beans and sautéed mushrooms, all served with excellent bread and butter. Great food. Very satifying.

Mediocre food. Salad was not fresh , had slimy pieces in it. Ordered lump crab cakes. They were not made with lump crab, although paid for lump crab. Crab cakes were salty. Sides ok. My son had salmon that was pretty good. Really slow service. Tables around us not clean. The hostess was bussing tables. Definitely not worth the price of entrees relative to the quality.

We went to the South Side location to enjoy the Landry’s February Special. But discovered this is a privately owned location and they aren’t offering the special. Nikki provided attentive service and the food was delicious. But we won’t be returning.

Only 2 tables is occupied for Saturday lunch time. Then I can say , in the middle of COVID 19 situation, I recommend this restaurant for lunch time.

Overall experience was amazing, due to covid the place was mainly empty. The service was great , maybe because we were the only ones there lol the food was great as well, honest I've had the same.quality if not better at other places where the prices were more reasonable, and the portions were a little bigger, but overall it was a great experience.

Great meal and overall experience! Sadly due to Covid as we visited on a weeknight we were the only ones eating at the restaurant and only one other diner came in towards the end of our meal.

It was too bad as the food was great as was the service. Our waitress was a gem as she was very attentive and very personable. I do not recall her name but she was a young lady attending Pitt and soon to graduate and continue her studies at Duquesne.

I would highly recommend for the food and service and it is a beautiful place hopefully soon to bustle with more patrons.

That whole SouthSide area seemed pretty desolate!

Our appetizer of blue crab dip was delicious. My fillet was sizzling hot and cooked correctly. It was delicious! My husband’s entrée, the ultimate seafood Grill mix, was POOR. The shrimp were very tough, the crabcake had no crab in it and was not tasty. The salmon was extremely salty. We ordered lobster mashed potatoes that came cold and lumpy. It was like lobster bisque soup was poured over the mashed potatoes. Our server was excellent however! The food was way overpriced for the value. My 8 ounce filet, at $46, was seven dollars more at this location than several other McCormick and Schmick locations. Also, my fillet at $46 came with no sides. To serve just a fillet for $46 is highway robbery. We will definitely not be returning.

The server my table had was sadly not up to par. He rarely checked on our table to see if we needed anything. We waited about a hour for our food to arrive to our table, and when wet were able to track him down to ask him how much longer it may have been for our food to arrive he responded “I don’t know, I’m not the chef”. All food items were not present, and when asking our waiter about it he questioned if we ordered the items. When asked to speak to a manager she did help, and offered a free dessert, but they did not have the dessert available. I didn’t pick another dessert, simply because no other one appealed to me.

Food was poor. $40 New York Strip was advertised as a "Prime" cut but either it was mislabeled or the don't know how to cook a steak medium rare. This is the kind of steak you get at Golden Corral. Sorry, that's unfair since I've never been to Golden Corral. The mahi-mahi was supper dry and crab cakes where basic. We did receive free dessert because it was my wife's birthday. Total bill.... $206 (4 people, 2 glasses of wine). Don't mind paying for good food. This wasn't it. Won't go back.
