McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Reston
Book your next event with us
This was the best dining experience we’ve had in a long time. The staff made it truly unforgettable, and for no reason other than that they strive to please their customers. Food was amazing. Service was outstanding. We asked for a few modifications and they were happy to oblige. We dine often and this is absolutely one restaurant we will remember and frequent going forward. Thank you for making our dining experience so surprisingly wonderful.
Table was far enough away from others that we could be romantic. Food was delicious. wine is always way overpriced. what we would pay $15 for at total Wine they charged us $59. Enjoyed the dinner date though.
We were St happy hour
Great menu and prices
Came at quiet time. Our first visit. Very enjoyable, great service, great food. Decor is traditional and sophisticated. Wonderful experience.
Excellent food, service. Price was right. Good show. Service staff very helpful.
Excellent birthday lunch. The waiter was wonderful and food was delicious. We love going to this McCormick & Schmick's.
Food was amazing. Service was extremely good. Great place if you have a gluten allergy or for any other food allergy really. Managers and servers are well informed on food allergies.
Service was terrible. 30 mins and we had not been visited by a server, no water or anything.
For those reading, M&S was not bad :). I only say I wouldn't recommend it to a friend because of the amount I spent for a 6/10 experience. My assessment is due to the following:
- The tables were pretty close together and the restaurant was small, which made the atmosphere louder than expected.
- Our server seemed slightly distracted about something. She did handle our order well, but didn't seem too attentive.
- I received a recommendation from our server for their "special" which included Filet Mignon and 2 lobster tails. When I received the bill, it was not charged as a "special" but instead a la carte for both tails. Perhaps I should've asked for pricing before I ordered the "special" haha. #LessonsLearned.
For the amount I spent, I personally would have went to Ruth Chris instead. With that being said, the people were nice and the look of the restaurant was nice. The food was tasty, however smaller portions that I would've assumed.
What can I say. It’s a classic east coast seafood restaurant with lovely dark wood and curtained private booths. The raw bar fare is wonderful. They also have wonderful party rooms for special events and a pretty noisy yet fun bar area that was packed. That said, the layout of the place is such that the noise from the bar area is not noticeable from the main area. Fantastic!
We arrived not knowing that restaurant week had been extended. I chose to eat off the special menu while my friend ate off the regular menu. His fish and chips were very good. (Fish and Chips are our usual go-to items on McC & Sch menu). From the restaurant week menu I chose the seafood gumbo - it has a punch of heat, very good. The truffle mac and cheese - a huge portion, very rich and very good. Our server Kyle was very personable and fun. This place has a great happy hour menu also.
Excellent experience. Always the best.
Outstanding lunch entrees, please keep on the menu!!!!!
price too high and quality poor. food waiting time too long.
Service and food were great. Plan to be back soon on a weekend when parking is free!
I only found one piece of a truffle in my crab mac n cheese. It needed some flavor and definitely more cheese. My husband really enjoyed his chocolate peanut butter pie. The service was excellent after an initial slow start.
Our server was avg... food was GREAT...for a 450 bill, we felt our server would have been more accomodating and less snooty
My friend and I had a late lunch celebrating her birthday. The food was so fresh and tasty. The service was impeccable - very attentive but not intrusive. Lovely ambiance. Freshest seafood! Recommend it for lunch or dinner. Oh, and they even brought my friend a special birthday dessert! Nice touch.
Went there for date night. It was fantastic. Highly recommended and the food was delicious.
This restaurant used to be the best on food and service. I don't know what happened, but the service and food was horrible. Never again!!
The food was nice, the private dining area was great. The waiter was knowledgeable and helpful with ordering which we loved (Mike). The food was really slow getting to the table took 3 hours for our entire meal, because it was very busy and our waiter had a large table of guests in his area. Too long to wait for our food, and had a teen age guy with us who was starving hungry. Good for light eaters, but we were all hungry after the meat. We spent $400 on our meal. Will definitely come back for happy hour, for price, portions and speed.
We got seated right on time and enjoyed our food. Our server was very friendly. We had a good time.
Photo of menu options depicted 2 lobster tails that were 3x the size of the actual tiny tails we received. The waiter could not understand our questions about vegetable choices. The menu said the lobster tails came with a lobster bisque, but we were asked if we wanted lobster bisque as an appetizer. Very confusing. I was very sorry I took my wife McC&S for our anniversary!
We enjoyed ourselves for a great dinner. Great fish and will definitely come again. Thank you!
We were dining New Years Eve and to be honest were disappointed in our meals. Three of us ordered steaks, 2 medium and 1 well. The mediums were well done and the well done one was very dry. The other party ordered fish. The edamame that came with it was still hard. We have dined here many times in the past with rave reviews so hoping this was just a bad night. The service was good but they were clearly over stretched.
Great food and service for our New Year’s Eve dinner.
Excellent food and service
Went with my husband & 4 friends on New Year's Eve. Our table was ready when we arrived & we were seated in one of the back rooms. There was a special menu that night. I had one of the special fish dishes which was quite good but could have used a little more sauce. One of my friends had requested a salad with salmon on top instead of one of the specials. They were able to do that for her. One item service was on the slow side.
Birthday and New Years. Had a private section and it was wonderful!!
Went for an early (6:20) New Year's Eve dinner and the food and service were simply wonderful. They did a substitution on a grilled platter for me because on an allergy with no complaints. Our server was as good and friendly as it gets.
A very nice experience to end 2018
Limited menu on New Years Eve actually provided a good selection of food and drink items. Food was all prepared properly and no mishaps on service by Liz who made it her goal for our party to have a great dining experience. Thank you Liz. All in all, this restaurant was firing on all cylinders on one of the busiest nights of the year. My only confusion was that there is no valet parking. Maybe its a Reston thing?
The matre d’ , Brian, was sensational!
Food was excellent; noisy, but it was Christmas, so it was festive!
We had a wonderful Christmas dinner!
The waitress was not very attentive or helpful. The food was amazing though!
Steak and lobster tail were cold had to send back. Reheated and brought back. At least it was hot. Definitely not worth the price i paid. Not sure how they stay in business with that quality of food at those prices.
It was the perfect pick for Christmas dinner. The food was amazing. It was very crowded due to the holiday but the service was impeccable. We're going to make this a Christmas tradition for the years to come.
We couldn’t be more disappointed. To begin with, we called in to say that as will be 15 minutes late but by the time we got there, the attendant stated that no one received the call ( we showed him the call placed on our phone)so our reservation was canceled. Anyway, we got seated 30 minutes later. The server didn’t come to the table until 15 minutes later. We understand it was Christmas Day and they were busy but how can a restaurant run out of BREAD at 7:30 pm? All the steaks we ordered came under cooked or over cooked. Our overall experience was not good and it is too much money for a less than average meal. We will not go back again.
We went for a family dinner Christmas night. We were happy to be seated inside a booth. Our server was extremely friendly. For the most part everything was fine but we were dismayed when we saw another table receiving bread, asked for it ourselves and were told, "We're out." No apology, no substitution, no promise it would come. We actually thought it was a joke but since no bread ever showed up we guess not. That struck me as a very odd response and an odd occurrence in such a fancy restaurant with high prices who should know how big a crowd to expect on a holiday night. As we had ordered no appetizers we were disappointed. Anyway, the food was good and the desserts excellent. We had gift cards from Costco and I must say that every year when we use them there the server exhibits some concern. So, there's some issue there. However, they were processed along with our AARP discount, which was accepted cheerfully. It's expensive, but it's a nice place for a special event and we are always glad they are open on Christmas.
