The menu items were limited, not sure if it's because of Mother's Day as they had a special menu for the day.

It was a blustery day and the restaurant opens at 3:30 on Saturdays. I was one of the first guests to arrive and we had to wait until 3:35 for the manager to unlock the doors. I called at 3:30 and a staff member said that they had to wait for the manager to open the doors. Considering the weather conditions being much colder than usual in May, I feel the doors should have been opened on time.

I observed the servers working as a team to accommodate the guests. The food was delicious.

Me and my best friend had a mommy getaway weekend. We had made reservations at the restaurant upon arrival we had to ask a server that was walking by of he could seat u because we been waiting for so long. Once seated our server didn’t ask us if we wanted drinks or a appetizer. She asked us if we wanted tap water or a sparkling water. Once we received our water we had asked for straws took her 10 minutes to bring straws. When she returned we ordered appetizers. Eventually we was able to order some cocktails she said she needed to see an ID (odd being that I’m almost 40) but I proceeded to tell her that I couldn’t take it out my wallet because it was stuck but I could show her because it was a clear piece that it was stuck into and you could read it. She goes to tell me that she has to physically hold my ID because that was the rules which I get but at the same time we are still dealing with Covid so I don’t understand that aspect of her physically having to touch my ID. So fast forward to her bringing out our appetizers. We had completely finished our appetizers not once did she come and check up on us or even ask us for our order. So when she finally came I just asked for check and we left. I have NEVER been to this type of high end establishment and received such rude and unprofessional service. This was the first time in over a year that I decided to treat myself. We was extremely happy to be going to this restaurant just to be treated sooooooooo rudely. I wanted to tell the manager about it but that probably wouldn’t have done no help. There was a server named AJ that was working close to our table that was treating his guest so pleasant we wished we had got him. But instead we had a young last who obviously didn’t care so much for us. Our dinner was ruined and cut short because of this young lady. I will not be returning and also I will be telling fellow peers of my experience of this establishment.

The reason I didn't give the food a higher rating was because it was not hot--just warm. I like my food served hot. Because the restaurant wasn't crowded and the order for the entrees was taken at the same time as the salads, the entrees set in the kitchen for awhile before they were brought to the table. In fact, we had only eaten half the salads before the entrees were brought out. Bad timing by the wait and kitchen staff.

When we got there there was no hostess to greet us or to have us take a seat anywhere we waited for about 10 minutes to meet to find a seat. And no one was standing in front of us

We won’t go back. Waited 10 minutes for high chairs. Giant gnat in our water and I swear they just poured it out and brought a half empty glass back. Forgot my sparkling water. Wine came out after the appetizer arrived. My Ahi tuna was well done and the bok choy had gritty dirt in it. I’m just astonished at how bad our experience was. My husbands scallops were very good. And the kids loved the salmon and pasta. Our waitress seemed inexperienced and didn’t comprehend the concerns we were having. Such dissatisfaction.

Dinner with daughter who goes to college in DC. I had a cold steak my daughter had cold filet mignon. Wife had an extremely oily sea bass. For desert we had an ice cold creme brûlée. Understand they were understaffed because of the times we are in but will never go back.

The service was terrible. I had heard so many great things about this restaurant so you can only imagine how disappointed I was after my experience. I went there on my 1 year anniversary, and just based of the experience it makes me not want to celebrate any more anniversaries anywhere. So disappointed and discouraged.

Service was slow, bar drinks even slower. Food was good. Server was trying to keep up but seemed like maybe they were short staffed. I’m sure covid doesn’t help. Still love the food and will go back again soon.

I enjoy having lunch at McCormick & Schmidt for the value and also the food. I always get the clam chowder and get a dinner to go for the evening.
