This place is pretty upscaled... The seafood trio was really delicious... REALLY delicious. I'd go here again.

What a really great evening. Service from the moment we entered until the moment we walked out was spot on. Dinner tonight was superb. Mike was an awesome server giving my sister and I plenty of time to talk and eat. Those Shrimp Kisses were awesome! Thanks for a great evening!

We decided to go to McCormick’s on Sunday to beat the Valentine’s Day crowd. It was well worth it. The food was excellent, our waiter Mike was great. He was very knowledgeable of the menu. Our early Valentine’s Day was great.

My waitress was really great. The steaks were awesome. The only thing that i did not like was the lobster tail. It came out cold and i just dont think its worth its value.

We had a very attentive waitress who was a bit overworked as it was not easy to get water refills. She was pleasant and knowledgeable and was really trying to meet our needs. We were sitting near the front door so the people getting checked in and the staff calling to other staff about tables being ready was a bit noisy and a distraction. The food was ok, not excellent, and thus I don't feel it was worth the amount of money we spent.

Bad dining experience with slow service and had to ask for things two or three times ... restaurant was not full. Food was just OK. The only way to get a fried shrimp and oyster combination was to pay for each oyster individually ... crazy.
Watched staff wipe dirty tables, then use the same dirty cloth to wipe soiled place mats, then place clean silverware on the place mats just wiped with the dirty towel. Disgusting.
Will not be returning to this restaurant & will not recommend.

Our waitress was top-notch. I was the designated driver so she kept me full of ice water throughout our stay. My wife, brother-in-law and his bride all had wine, they loved it! Additionally, the atmosphere was outstanding, and most of all, the food was first-class, as good as it gets!

This is my second visit to this restaurant and I for sure will be coming back along with friends and family!

Great job, I tip my hat!!!

First time and it was great. We have visited McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Raleigh - Crabtree Mall for the first time - but have been the guests of many of the other locations across America.

Great wait staff, prompt seating and the food was timely - drinks were great - and most importantly the food was fantastic. I had the crusted grouper and my wife had the stuffed shrimp. Coupled with the crabcake appetizer - we left full and happy.

The service was exceptional. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that a food allergy concern was addressed. Unfortunately, the food was mostly average. The scallops were mushy and had little flavor. The salmon was excellent, but the stuffing had mostly an Old Bay flavor to it. Finally the vegetables were just over salted.

The food and service were both very good but the nightmare that is getting into, parking at, and getting out of this mall will probably keep us from returning. I don't know why it's such a problem but traffic here is like the holiday season all year 'round.

Our waiter was horrible. I frequent McCormick & Schmick's, we were greeted and seated without a wait, however our waiter was absolutely horrible. He took 20 minutes to come take our order, and it took roughly 40 minutes for our food to come. It took 8 minutes for our drinks to come out. Drinks ordered were apple juice, sweet tea, ginger ale, and water.

The manager proactively came out an apologized, and stated the kitchen was short staffed. Did not offer a discount for the inconvenience. I mentioned we've been waiting an hour to see if any remedy would be offered, but he walked away. We waited an additional 10 minutes.Reservations scheduled for 8p. We were seated at 8:05p, waiter took order at 8:25p, brought drinks out at 8:33p, and food came out at 9p.

Food was fantastic, but not worth the wait. Just didn't feel like going elsewhere for another wait

Although less than half full on a Wednesday, kitchen was behind. Fish over cooked. Waitress genuinely tried to cover, manager had excuses, but at these prices our expectations were much higher.
Nice facility with booths.

It was ok until a guy, not our waiter, grabbed my plate off the table. When one is holding the fork in their hand & still chewing, that is an indication they are still eating.

Slowest service I have experienced in a long time. Server seemed to be running around and trying, but he had tables all over the restaurant. Drinks took over 10 minutes each time, and that was after waiting 10 minutes to get a chance to order a second round. Server was trying, but everything seemed to take forever.

The food was pretty good, but the service was so poor that it probably ruined it for me. We had a reservation, but didn't get seated upon arrival. Who ever our server was supposed to be never showed up at our table so maybe 10-ish minute later another server came over to help us. The bar was backed up and when we did receive our drinks, they weren't right (both were mixed beers and one didn't even have the second type of beer in it - the other they added an ingredient not on the menu for the drink). I probably wouldn't go back. Bad service gives me anxiety - going out should be easy and seamless.

The only thing that was irritating is that we ordered a second round of cocktails before our entree came. We waited and waited. Entree was served. Just as I was finishing up my entree the cocktails came. Our server did apologize that the bar was backed up. We visited during restaurant week so was understandable. Knowing how busy this week is I would suggest staffing the bar with more staff than normally needed on a regular Saturday night. I felt as though I needed to rush through my cocktail as the server said that our desserts would be right up. I would come back but, would order two drinks at once! I rated the service low due to the bar service. Service from our server was great!

Did not serve Lady at the table first!
Did not receive our steak knives until almost finished with our dinner!
The waiter stated that because they were so busy there would be a delay in receiving our food, Our reservation was at 6:00, the restaurant was half empty! Total bull!!!
Waitress at the table next to us dropped napkins and place mats on the floor then picked them up and set the table!

Very disappointed in the entire experience! I do not see us dining there any time soon!

I made a 1:45 reservations for 2 on Saturday. It was Triangle Restaurant Week. There was a set menu to choose from. Of course the choices were limited (no major problem). There are absolutely NO substitutes (or at least that is what I was told about the salad). I was willing to forego the starter option. My friend and I both ordered the catfish entree and the mini moulton lava cake. After approximately 25-30 minutes our server returned to our table to advise us that their catfish shipment did not come in and the entree was substituted with swordfish. She wanted to know if that would be alright. It was fine for my friend but not for me. The server then brought me a regular menu to order something else and less than 2 minutes later brought my friend's meal. NOTE: The original order was ready before we were informed that they did in fact substitute the fish. I guess they can sub but a patron cannot. I ultimately ordered a burger at a seafood restaurant since I have a shell fish allergy. The burger arrived at our table 1 hour and 4 minutes past our reservation time (and my friend was now finished eating). I again acknowledge that this is a seafood restaurant but the burger was burned and I did not order it WELL DONE!. This was not my normal experience at this location but I was exceptionally disappointed with this experience. It is tough to recommend them anymore especially since the restaurant was not crowded. NOTE: My friend did approach the hostess stand to discuss this matter with the manager and they did take the burger off the bill but even the management team was limited in availability or being accessible to the customers. Most often the managers make their rounds to say hello and to make sure that the dinning experience was a good one; this did not happen at all on Saturday. I was disappointed that none of the managers ever made their way to the table to apologize to me directly even after being made aware of the situation. #verydisappointed
