McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Skokie Ratings and Reviews
We had mixed reviews on our meal.
The Lobster bisque was excellent; the Caesar salad was good, but too much anchovy paste (just my personal taste).
The Hawaiian tuna was just ok -- just a little fishy tasting to me. My friend's whitefish was excellent.
The chocolate silk pie was excellent too.
Our server was very attentive.
My husband and I selected McCormick & Schmick's for our Thanksgiving late luncheon with our son. Our son is a Junior at Northwestern University and had classes that didn't end until after 6pm on Wednesday. McCormick & Schmick's proved to be an EXCELLENT choice for all of us. My son and I both had steak (medium rare & perfectly cooked). My son also had calamari and clam chowder. My husband had oysters Rockefeller and I had the Iceberg Wedge with Blue Cheese and Bacon. Everything was perfectly presented. The restaurant was quiet enough for some serious discussion. My son is extremely happy pursuing math and computer science at Northwestern. I would be happy to take him to McCormick & Schmick's again! Thank you for the excellent service and a great meal!
We have enjoyed going to McCormick and Schmicks in the past. This time, the night before Thanksgiving, we were placed in a small room off the bar. We were generally ignored by our server, who we think was also the bartender. I have never been so ignored and neglected by a server at an M&S restaurant, and it made me not wish to return to this location. I have no idea why the restaurant shunted us off to the side like this when the place was nearly empty.
We have enjoyed this place previously, but today the fish was off, one meal seemed to have been overlong under the warming light and another of us gave up on his fishy smelling entree and ate bread. Dessert order was placed and it took 20 minutes. We had a good time in spite of the restaurant. We will not return.
We normally enjoy this restaurant more than our last visit. The service is usually better. It wasn't bad last night, but our server was less experienced and thus didn't have all the answers.
We ordered the filet medium well; and it came fully well done. Not the end of the world, so I didn't send it back as it was already getting late and didn't have the time to wait for a medium well replacement.
Other than that, we enjoyed the evening.
I'm sure they were much more crowded than usual for a Sunday evening. This was because of their very generous tradition of treating veterans to a great dinner the Sunday before Veterans day. Service was still good and the entree was out of sight. I always have had wonderful experiences at this M&S.
The food and service were outstanding as usual. I would recommend going to eat there to anyone. You will never be disappointed. You are always treated great. There is not a bad seat in the place. They have the best calamari appetizer that I have ever had. You can never go wrong eating at McCormick & Schmick's. It is always a great dinning experience.
THIS TIME WILL BE A GREAT EXPERIENCE, CROSS YOUR FINGERS!!!!
My party arrived just minuets before me, I gave the hostess my name and she waved her arm to the side and said "go ahead your party has arrived you can go over there " I then asked her to take me to the table. The Asian hostess (no name tag) was a little put off as she rolled her eyes and took me to the table. I found the staff to be too comfortable and relaxed at times for a place where the prices are not inexpensive, one would expect them to be a little more polished. I've dined here many times and there is always something that is a little odd, for example one time the manager introduced himself and I couldn't get passed the wrinkled shirt to hear what he was saying (it was so odd). After he walked away my guest remarked she thought he looked homeless with his wrinkled shirt and unshaved face, I was embarrassed and laughed it off. I've worked in the service industry and I think they could do a much better job and that's why I booked my reservation on Open Table so my voice could be heard. I really thought I was going to have a great experience because I have found that you do get treated differently when the resturant knows you booked on Open Table that wasn't the case :( wake up and fix your problems !
Ordered a New York strip and was served a ribeye. Both of our steaks were over cooked, asked for medium rare and we were served two well done steaks, grey throughout no pink whatsoever. Told our server immediately and we're simply told "sorry" no offer to correct the order or the error in cooking.
A birthday bonus of $25 off from Landry Select brought me to the restaurant. I forgot how bad the service is here but was instantly reminded of it when the hostess asked us to wait while she did...I don’t know what for 5 minutes. Just know they are not that busy but very slow. But food is great. I love their chopped salad. Excellent Sea Bass. Creme Brûlée was beautiful. And somehow my $25 off became $50 off, so all things considered, well dined.
