McCormick & Schmick's Seafood & Steaks
I took my 12 year old daughter here during our Christmas getaway to Charlotte. We were both really excited about the restaurant and food. Unfortunately we were really disappointed with our meals. She had the American Kobe burger and I had the Stuffed Salmon. The salmon was delicious but everything else was not. My daughter complained that her burger was plain with no seasoning. She tried to dress it up with salt and proper to no avail. She only ate half her meal and allowed the server to discard the remainder. My sides (sauted spinach, green beans and then swapped for asparagus) were all very oily and also had no flavor. The atmosphere and our server were nice. She did swap out one of my sides after I told her I didnt like it. Unfortunately I paid $5 for the substitute. Altogether our meal was $70 (before tip) and we both left dissatisfied. I regretted not going to less expensive restaurant as I believe the food would have been better. Ill be honest I wished I could have gotten my money back. I really felt it was a waste.
We started with Scallops Gratin and Baked Parmesan Pesto Oysters. So delicious. We followed with the Kobe Burger and fries (cooked perfectly mid rare), Lobster Bisque, and a super fresh definitely homemade Caesar Salad. Thanks Bruce, Cody, and everyone else who worked Christmas day! You're appreciated very much!
We have visited M&S several times in different cities and have always had a great dining experience. The best thing about the Charlotte location was our server, Lexi, very accommodating; however, we cant say the same for the food & drinks. One of our guests first time at M&S and it was not a good experience. Ordered two drinks from the bar which neither were to our liking and my 1st time guest returned hers not re-ordering another one. I returned mine, ordered a different type, which none of the drinks were prepared very well so maybe the bartender was new? My fish tacos were barely warm & slightly overcooked, my husbands grilled chicken sandwich was also overcooked. The 1st timers shrimp was overcooked. The Kobe Burger proved to be good for 1 of 4 meals. This was a like a scout trip for our conference next year in Charlotte, but unfortunately not impressive enough to recommend to any conference attendees.
Unbelievable customer service from the staff lead by the fantastic manager, Eddie. We love dining at the bar. A fantastic perk of uptown!!!! Wish I could give more than 5 stars.
A date night I had planned for hubby and I. Everything was perfect. The food, drinks and dessert. Ever our waiter Ryan was wonderful. Can't wait to return.
