    We visited M&S on K for Mother’s Day dinner and had a lovely time. We made reservations in advance and not only were they friendly and accommodating with us running a few minutes behind, but as were also given a private dining area which was a pleasant surprise. The service was excellent. Very attentive and quick. Most importantly, the food was great and did not disappoint anyone at the table. We all emptied our plates. The drinks were also great. Try any of their non-alcoholic lemonades from their extensive drink menu. If you are into adult beverages, their Margarita is excellent. Not too strong, not watered down. Highly recommend this restaurant. We plan on becoming regulars for sure.

    Service was very slow and food was lukewarm/average. Calamari was not fresh and came lukewarm twice. Cheesecake didn’t taste like cheesecake. Crystal City Va location food & service is far better. I will not be returning to DC location and parking is horrible. Very dissatisfied Mother’s Day!

    The Restaurant was closed when we arrived. People inside unlocked the doors, they saw us outside I did not bother to let us know the door was open. The hostes receiving us was rude to be honest. Seems to me they did not want to open the place or even attend us. I took a client there claiming it was a great place however I am not returning, Let me know any questions Fernando Duclaud.

    Went here for lunch with 4 co-workers. Overall it was ok. We had a very nice private dining booth that was elegant and quiet. The service was good and attentive even with the challenge of a very deep booth. The thoughts on the food were mixed. I didn't care for my fish and chips that much, but others liked the crab cakes and stuffed salmon. The clam chowder was very thick with lots of clams, but the flavor was a bit strange to me. For me, the food could have been just a step better than it was. So, I found our visit ok. If someone wanted to go again I would, but I'm not hankering to go back either.

    The restaurant was quite empty at 5pm. Our waiter was nice but was absent, esp. to take the order after serving drinks. We had a party of 3. 2 of us did not like the meal. I am gluten free and I was given the wrong order. I thought I was getting a meal that was Gluten Free, just broiled swordfish, but on their (limited) menu, there was a signature swordfish dish topped with (extremely salty) crab with a sauce. The sauce had gluten. I sent the dish back and mentioned to the waiter, this wasn't what I ordered. It came back with the sauce/crab scraped off and crab with no sauce put on top. I could not eat the crab as it was too salty. The swordfish plain, was not fresh, and not nicely broiled. I ate the vegetable and a few bites of the fish and that was it. About 30 minutes later, I started to get an allergy reaction to gluten being in the fish. I was sick the rest of the evening and the next day.

    We were the table no one wanted. Arrived for reservation a little earlier but were immediately seated. We sat for 20 minutes before we saw a server. Manager noticed we were neglected and the service seemed like it was going to improve but it only lasted 5 minutes. We had 2 different servers and the both abandoned our table. They brought our appetizer before we received our drink orders and no one had filled our waters. Had a party of 4, the bill was $165, and no one liked their meals. We ate everything because we had skipped lunch that day while sightseeing. I would not recommend. The manager saw there was an issue and should have stopped by our table to check on us.

    Our food was excellent, but because of staff shortages, delivery of food and drink were slow. One of our group ordered salad to be a starter, but it arrived with the meal. Bar was short a bartender and chocolate martini was weak. The server was pleasant and tried really hard, but the staff shortages were obvious and certainly detracted from the overall experience.

    McCormick & Schmick's is a great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. The service was outstanding, the food excellent, with the exception of the fish and fries. The fish was too heavily breaded. Good value for your money.

    The manager ( Abdel)at the D.C. location should be in another line of work, he is rude, argumentative and not the least bit appreciative of the paying customer or a Landry’s President’s Club Member. I have never been treated with such lack of professionalism at a Landry’s Location. James in the Bar area is just the opposite a great employee and a gentleman that goes out of his way to take care of the customer. Sadly the employees at this location do not have a professional in their manager to set a positive example.

    Service was horrific. We were sat by the hostess & she never told the server. That was just the beginning. We had to ask for a server after 20 min. The service goy much worse after that. The only good thing about the meal was the quality of the food. Expect Burger King service for $30 to $40 per entree prices. Do not take a chance & go.

    The waiter was rarely available. The food came out inconsistently and cold. Waiter was obviously totally untrained. Didn’t know the menu at all. Had to go to kitchen many times to answer questions about different fish. Embarrassing to friend invite. Train your staff and hire more. It would take a lot to come back to restaurant which I have come for many years.
