McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Providence Ratings and Reviews
The items on the special menu all sounded as if they were fit for a king. I narrowed my choices to two. My wife reminded me that I should pick one over the other for health reasons. The young lady that served us made recommendations that made the meal even better than I had expected. The food was great, the service excellent and the surrounding made for a very pleasant dinner.
Made reservations and glad I did. The place does fill up fast. Good service and a nice place to take the significant other. The only problem that I had was the toughness of the steak and the shrimp. I ordered the 6 oz Filet Mignon with Stuffed Shrimp, both were a little tough as though they had cooked the meats way too fast on too high of a temperature. But as I said before, the place was pretty busy. Other then that, awesome place to go relax and have a good meal with a group or a date.
Our experience was wonderful! The choices were top notch as well as the food. Our server, John, was very impressive also. He knew about all of the food we questioned and how they cooked it, as well as the taste. He offered suggestions in all price ranges as well as a wine to compliment the meal. We sat in a quiet room behind the bar, which offered privacy for quiet talk. We frequent this restaurant for special occasions and will continue to go back in the future. I highly recommend it!
Got together with another couple for a nice night out. The $5 valet makes this an easy and stress free spot to get together. The prices are fair considering the atmosphere and the food quality. The city was alive with water-fire and this was a perfect refuge from the hustle and bustle.
The dining experience overall was very good. Very nice atmosphere and our waiter was very attentive. I gave the food only 3 stars for two reasons: 1) My steak was overcooked, I ordered medium, which to me should be a warm pink center, and it came out medium well with a gray center, 2) the "garden" salad consisted of some shredded lettuce (some of which was turning brown)in some sort of hard tortilla shell and a couple of grape tomatoes - I am a salad lover and was a bit disappointed in this one. The appetizer of littlenecks on the half shell were excellent - very fresh. The veggies that came with the steak were excellent as well, and we shared some risotto that was quite good. My daughters meat was cooked perfectly and she was happy.
Wonderful food and great atmosphere. Service was good, but a little slow (partially due to kitchen staff). Server had great suggestions and, when told of a particular time-table requirement, made sure dessert was served in sufficient time. Very friendly staff all around. Had a wonderful time.
Not impressed. It was our first time - a birthday, so we wanted a special evening. The service was average (not attentive; plates left at the table long after we finished; when asked about three dishes, the waitress said, "Well, I don't like those personally, but I hear they're good"). The food was overpriced for what you got. The Grilled Lobster and Shellfish Brochette was very good, (especially the couscous!), but the menu said lobster tail, when it was only half a lobster tail. At the bar, men were singing along to the '80s songs. I asked about karaoke, but the waitress said they don't have karaoke, just a rowdy group that spilled over from another room. Odd evening overall and no need to go back. For a $180 bill for two, a C+ at best.
We are "foodies" I guess. I love oysters, M&S is best in our area, so I ordered 12, then another 4 of my favorites. The waiter had an annoying habit, as I am seeming to remember other waiters have of continual "upsell", refilling wine glasses, (and in the past, sparkling water glasses) in order to wrench as much revenue out of our seating as possible. After ordering three appetizers I didn't order a main, but agreed to share my husband's, the waiter tried (unsuccessfully) to remove my side dish and all my silverware, as if to say "well you are all done- in my book!" It marred the experience for me. I am pretty certain it is company policy. If I noticed, probably others do. Why not respect your wonderful food more than money, please.
Upon entering restaurant at reservation time, no greeter/hostess for about 10 minutes. We had to find the greeter/hostess. Web site said dinner menu started at 3PM but hostess said at our 4 PM reservation that the dinner menu had not been printed yet. It really did not seem like the hostess was expecting any guests. About 4:20 we were seated and told we could now order from the dinner menu. Food portions were small for the price of both orders-Clams with linguine (5 clams)at approx $18.00 and fish and chips (small pieces of fish in lots of batter) for approx $17.00. This restaurant will not be on our go back to list. There was an odor to the restaurant that was unpleasant. This was our first visit and a gift from our granddaughter
I always like going to this McCormick & Schmick. Since it is n the grand old Biltmore Hotel, it has a nice location where you can sit at the window and people watch the downtown pedestrian traffic. (a lot more interesting than overlooking a parking lot as most suburban restaurants do).
Food & service outstanding as usual!
I like this one as the McCormick & Schmick's near me in New Jersey has terrible ambiance. They stuck it in the Bridgewater Mall, and actually offer a kid's special menu. BOTH times we had been to that one, I felt like we were dining at Friendly's during a birthday party - or at best, a Red Lobster... ARGH! That's why the one in Providence is such a treat by comparison.
i ordered grilled alaskan salmon, which swam to my table in an oily slick, luke-warm...too much oil on mixed veggies as well. cup of ne clam chowder also served luke-warm, after my tablemate nearly completed her appetizer...maitre d' surly when he approached our table with the wrong appetizer.
I took my boyfriend for his birthday dinner to your restaurant and am so glad I did. It was a great experience wait staff were excellent. The attention to detail was outstanding. They are truly above and beyond the rest! Chris was a faboulous waiter. Thank you for everything. Vicki
Honestly, I was not positively impressed. We had a reservation trough Open Table but still had to wait over 20 minutes to get a table. We were seated in the middle of the room and the table next to us were very loud where we could not hear our conversation unless we shouted. The food was not overly special for the relatively high price. Sorry.
My first time at a McCormick & Scmick's and it was just average. Food was good - but nothing special; Service was only average - the waiter could not multi-task at all - oen request and he was gone for awhile....I asked for a special table via the Open Table - and they barely recognized my reservation - even after they called to verify I was coming. Will not go back, and I plan to be in Providence many more times - so many other choices available. Do some homework.
We often go to McC & S before theater at Trinity. I squelch my customary aversion to national chain restaurants because it has the feel of a local restaurant. The fish is always great and the wine list large enough and fairly priced. Odd for me to notice, but the vegetables were cooked to perfection! On Fridays, we always ask for Amanda as our waitperson.
We have been to McCormick & Schmick before and have always had excellent meals but this was sensational! My significant other likes his salmon on the rare side and it was cooked to perfection. My dinner was just as perfect. The appetizer, sald & vegetables were all cooked to perfection and we shared the dessert which was outstanding. All & all an excellent meal.
Our dining experience was a 10+!!!! From the time we entered till we left everyone there made us feel special....We frequent your restaraunt each & every time we go to Providence RI....It is always one of the highlights if our trip....Ryan, the Manager makes sure we are always taken good care of & we appreciate it....Looking forward to going back for your delicous food & wonderful service....Lori McGlynn
We were never asked by our waitress how the food was or we would have told her, and it wasn’t real busy. For appetizers we had stuffed clams and a mussel’s dish. The clams were really awesome but I had at least 3 “bad” mussels that I had to spit out of my mouth and other that didn’t look too good. For dinner we both had a stuffed swordfish dish that came highly recommended from our server. Although the dish was flavorful, for $24 we should have gotten a more "meaningful" piece of fish. We both felt like we received two end pieces that were left over from a “real” swordfish dinner. And $13 for a Johnny Walker Black, you’ve got to be kidding. From now on we’ll stick with M&S in Boston, “Gracie’s” in Providence and “Spain” in Cranston.
