Food was very good and service was great

I usually love this place; however, after 3 straight bad experiences I am giving up and writing this review. We went for Valentine’s Day. The restaurant called me to confirm my reservation during the day. We arrived at 730 for our table and were told it would just be a minute. Ten minutes later the hostess indicated we might want to just sit at the bar as it would be a very long wait. There were empty tables everywhere. We said no, and then magically got a table. We had 3 different servers during the meal. After a 45 min wait, They delivered us the wrong meals. I had to go into the kitchen area to find someone to help us . When cleaning up the table after dinner the gentleman dropped a knife into my fiancé’s lap covering her with cream sauce . No apology. Not once were we asked how our food was or experience.

Anyway, I would skip this place. Had similar rudenesss from host staff the last two times, etc. It’s a shame, this place used to be great.

Went for my wife's birthday, which is also Valentine's Day. Total disaster. Had us seat ourselves. Forgot our "custom" menu. Waited two hours to be served and the food was cold! Waiter "mentioned" that he had served four tables that night, and three had walked out because the food was so poor. We made table number four...

I was not impressed with the quality of the food at all. The staff was fine but the overall dining experience was just OK.

Food was delicious, as always, but our server “Marco” was not good...he rushed us taking our order, walking away before we were done with our questions. He did not bring the bread out, which is my favorite, until we had to ask him for it when they brought the entree. He also got my husband’s order wrong and he had to wait for it to be redone, never good.

Overall a wonderful meal. The restaurant even printed a special menu for our table wishing a Happy Birthday...the number of years and the date. That is customer service, and the food was just as outstanding. Best Chilean Sea Bass I have ever eaten.

Service was very good. our server quickly changed our table when we asked, due to a noisy baby in the booth next to us. Food was wonderful, as it always is here. The only difficulty was parking, as there was an event at Petco Park, which could have been mentioned when we made the reservation and we would have been more prepared for it! But since we made it with Open Table, there was no hint. We had to pay an exorbitant amount to park in the nearby structure because it was event parking that night.

I had the best swordfish I've ever eaten here. The ambience was very intimate. This is a great place to take a date.

Mediocre food was certainly not worth the 2 hour wait. Not near up to the expectations set by other M&S locations across the nation.

El servicio muy lento y tuvimos que esperar la mesa más de 20 minutos aún con la reserva confirmada

Dissapointed with service and ambiance due to price. Food was average, had better service and steaks at Donovan’s and Ruth Chris.

I was excited to go to this place and it was talked up a lot by clients and friends. They gave me a gift card to try it.
The Resturant is located in a hotel the second level where we sat is not inclosed so you had the lobby noise.
The restaurant didn’t have any type of cozy,classy or special feeling to it at all. We sat at a table for 6 and it was only 2 of us so that was odd. The waiter was nice. Our appetizer came out fast and had to ask /wait for bread for a long time that came out after the appetizers.
We left with an underwhelming feeling. If it wasn’t for the $100 gift card I would of felt completely ripped off.
I don’t think I’ll ever go back.
It would be good if you stayed at the hotel or had an event in the area you were attending. There are sooo many better choice just a few blocks away.
I would shop around

We enjoyed the homeless gathering , coming and going, exchanging whatever. Pet owners walking their dogs to relieving themselves, all right outside the window, less than 25 feet away!, very appetizing!!!!

The restaurant is well-located, menu is varied and interesting but service was pitiful. Hopefully not all servers are as lazy, rude and poorly trained as ours was.

Very noisy for thanksgiving dinner. Lots of screaming kids which was annoying. One server completely ignored my husband when he tried to find out why our bread never showed up. Food was fine

I have eaten there many times. It is a great place for a nice lunch or a great dinner. The staff is fantastic, and the food is a great value.

This time was a Thanksgiving experiment. It was our first time dining out for the holiday. We weren't disappointed. We had a very nice meal at a great price. I'm not a pumpkin pie person. I live on chocolate. However, everyone else was happy with dessert.

I'm already planning my next trip downtown to eat there.

Service was excellent! Food overall lacking. Halibut was overcooked, shrimp skerwer also overcooked, tough and chewy. Had crab tower app, fresh tasting, flavor good, but over priced and pretty basic. All the sides that came with a halibut were flavorless and Bland. The brussel sprout side dish was tasty but wasn't served as advertised half of the dish was small red potatoes they were not listed in the ingredients. Felt overall food for price was not good and there are plenty of other places in town with more flavor to spend your money at. Also bummed us out later when we were told by other guests of the hotel that the bread was their favorite thing there. We weren't ever offered bread!
