Food was excellent. We went there to celebrate two birthdays and we thoroughly enjoyed the dinners. I had the crab cakes, 2 people had the parmesan crusted flounder and one had the fish and chips and everyone enjoyed the food. We also had the lobster bisque and that was delicious. We will visit when we have another special occasion.

Food was good - things were chaotic though. We had a 6pm reservation and were not taken until 1 hour later which was difficult with a large party because the bar was jam packed, and we had 2 children. I do understand a reservation can run over, however, an hour is excessive. An appetizer offering was provided upon us being seated at the table, however, it just really put a damper on our experience at the restaurant.

Poor, inattentive service. The stuffed shrimp was so small, it could only hold less than a teaspoon of stuffing. Food was lukewarm. Asked for a cup of coffee and the coffee cup was filled half full.

The server was asked “how spicy is the Bloody Mary” his reply was “all bloody Mary’s are spicy”. Well the answer is there is a variety of blood Mary. Learn your craft and be a salesman. You can tell the waiter read from a script and didn’t learn what he was trying to sell to be able to sell it. Unfortunately let down. Food was ok but service was a bigger let down.

McCormick & Schmick's was a delight. The food and service were great. We made reservations when we had a Landry"s certificate, not realizing that this location was no longer affiliated with Landry's. Our server mentioned this to the manager and he couldn't have been nicer, giving us a coupon to make up for the invalid (at this location) certificate. We will definitely return to this restaurant where they obviously want to treat customers well and provide a good experience.

My wife and I had a reservation for 7:45. We got there 15 minutes earlier. Wait staff brought the drinks and appetizers on time. But the dinner entrees did not arrive. Finally manager came out and offered to give the entrees for free, we did not wanted free entrees. We wanted our dinner to be served within reasonable time. There were other tables that were there after us that got served before us. In any case we left the restaurant dismayed.

I don't think I would come again or recommend this restaurant to my friends or colleagues.

I was disappointed in my meal that the lobster tail part of my meal (Steak and Lobster tail $39) was a low grade frozen tail that was soaked in tripolysulphate. The lobster meat was not white and I could taste the chemical as soon as I put it in my mouth. The roasted potatoes were bitter and dry from being in warmer too long. The waitress was wonderful but I didn't want to complain because Id say that's the only lobster the chef purchases. Overpriced for quality of food. My Kentucky Mash was perfect.

I would recommend M otherwise, there are other restaurants nearby that are a better value. We made reservations for a weeknight before seeing a movie because according to the website, there are excellent 3 course specials Monday thru Thursday. However, this specific restaurant does not offer those specials despite them being listed for the Pittsburgh southside location! I was mad; it could be seen as a "bait-and-switch" or false advertising . I did express surprise to the server and I talked to the manager, who did make amends in a way by offering us free dessert and a card for $20 off at a visit before the end of May. So I would say he made good BUT still needs to have the menu for the southside location accurately reflect their offerings.

Food was alright but not spectacular. My salmon was over cooked and shrimp was tasteless. Server did not come back to table to check on us in a timely manner and to finish it off, I had a hair in my crab cake. We were in a hurry to leave and I did not complain. I just will put this place at the bottom of my list for repeat option.
