    Nice birthday dinner. The waiter Mason I think was excellent. He takes pride in his job. The food was good. We ordered a steak but it was not filet so there were some fatty chewy pieces of meat I did not like. I am a Landrys member so good to get points but forgot to remind waiter to take off the $25 bday reward. Anyway, M&S is a good place for downtown dining. The rodeo crowd and out of towners filled the place.

    Honestly, we were hoping for a great experience because we come into Houston a few times a year, but it was just okay. I can’t remember our servers name but as many times as she checked in and said she was checking on our cocktails and food, service was extremely slow! She apologized for things that weren’t her fault so I felt bad for her. It took over 30ish minutes to get our cocktails, appetizer took longer and entrees were 1.5 hour after sitting down. And we were ordering promptly. I understand that they were a full house so things could he slow but this was ridiculous. With the Eagles in town (7:30 start time) and there was another event going down here as well, management should have had the kitchen and front of house well staffed. No excuse. Honestly, we probably won’t be back. 2+ hours is way too long for a meal when you have an event after. We had to pass on dessert because of our 8pm event. We had a 6 pm reservation for 6 and half the party had to move on while the other half settled the bill after 8. Honestly, we probably won’t be back.

    Food was very good but kitchen was backed up and service was extremely slow. It was Friday night before a concert but given that essentially all parties had reservations, not sure why it took 10 min to be seated, 15 min before waiter came initially, 20 min to get a drink and almost an elapsed hour before food came. Ahi tuna was excellent and prepared well / right temp. Waiter tried to make it for it by brining check promptly -- he tried -- but kitchen and bar were overwhelmed.

    Seemed short staffed. Slow service. Inquired about an item on the menu and was told they didn’t have it, saw it served on 2 other tables. The ahi tuna dinner was bland, requested sauce and then waited so long that my spouse finished his meal before I received it. The chargrilled oysters were a disappointment. Literally just Parmesan cheese broiled on top- no garlic or butter… we will not go back. Too many other options!

    This has been one of my regular go-to's for years, but they totally dropped the ball tonight. I got there with a business partner at about 6:50 p.m. We were seated almost immediately. I noticed it was rather full for a Monday evening, so I figured services would be a little slower than usual. We were both hungry and knew what we wanted, so we ordered appetizers and our entrees when the waitress came over at 7:00 p.m. Oysters Rockefeller and three raw oysters for appetizers plus our main course. It took 30 minutes for the raw oysters to come out, and the Rockefeller came about 10 minutes later. So, 40 minutes for appetizers. We had eaten the bread at the table by then and asked for more, but a few minutes later, we were told that the kitchen had burned the new loaves and needed to cook some more. No fresh bread was ever brought out after that. Our main course did not arrive at the table until 8:05 p.m. I am sympathetic to being busy, but at this point, I was out of patience. When we did get the food, it was warm but not hot, so it may have been sitting for a few minutes. At this point, I asked for the manager (something I never do). The waitress was kind and tried to run interference and take the blame, but I insisted. When the managers came over, she never really stopped at the table. She did a slow walk and said I'm sorry, but we have some large tables, and I'll take the appetizers off the bill and kept walking. At this point, I insisted she stop and at least hear my concerns. Her look told me she did not care about anything I had to say. We finished our food, paid, and left. She ended up taking 20% off the bill and offered a dessert, but the damage was done at that point. Look, restaurants get busy, a conference may be in town on a usually slow night, and the kitchen may be slow. I can forgive all of that. But the manager's dismissive attitude about the whole thing is what I have a real problem with. I won't be back any time soon.

    Waited 35 minutes and still didn't get my drink. Asked the waiter multiple time and he just made excuses. Finaly after 35 minutes I saw the manager, who didn't even apologize, so I left. All the manger said was "I can get you a drink.” That’s too little too late. And my appetizer never arrived either. The service here is a disaster.

    I brought my Houston staff last night. I chose M&S because I thought it would give everyone a great experience. We had a great time, Tracy greeted us very kindly and even accommodated us very well. I must say the ribeye steaks (which majority of us ordered), were phenomenal. The only disappointing part of the night is in the area of service. Not quite sure whether Lexi is new to the industry, but when you're serving a clientele who's going to run a decent ticket (1K minimum), you want to be very intentional. Long story short, our group did not get any refills nor checked whether anybody needed another cocktail, or whether we were OK with our meals, etc. It was also hard for her to articulate details about the meals on the menu. It would be OK if we were dining at a lower tier joint, unless I'm mistaken, is that what I should be expecting at M&S with $45-$80 meal ticket? I want to be fair, provide constructive feedback to hopefully help her do better with training, etc.

    I ordered a cup of seafood gumbo which contained 3 shrimp smaller than a dime and one chopped piece of sausage about the size of a peppercorn. HORRIBLE The Greek salad had almost zero green lettuce mostly made of the stems of the lettuce was bitter.Furthermore the chicken was cold. Complete rib off

    M & S was a fun night with friends in downtown Houston the night before the National Championship game. Our server was excellent given how crowded and noisy the restaurant was. Unfortunately, my steak dinner arrived luke warm so it wasn't the best meal I've ever had.

    Our waitress, Jayla, was PHENOMENAL!! We ordered the shrimp kisses, as Jayla said they were a fan favorite and SHE WAS NOT WRONG!!!! WOW delicious! I ordered the steak and lobster with mashed potatoes, my steak was seasoned and cooked to a perfect medium rare, the mashed potatoes will take your breath away. My significant other had the gulf red snapper and it was to die for! WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT! Overall this experience was a 9.9 EXCELLENT dining experience and we will definitely be back!

    We always enjoy dining at McCormick & Schmick's in downtown Houston. Street parking (and in garages) is close by and easy. The ambience is always great, music is non-distracting, and the food and service are fabulous! Many of the dishes are simple yet subtle, but can be complex if one wishes. Don't miss the desserts!
