McCormick & Schmick's Seafood & Steaks
M&S is based a stone's throw from my hometown, so I went in predisposed to a positive review. As a company who grew from a desire to make quality cocktails, it's no surprise that their drinks are good. Their shrimp appetizer was amazing. The decor is great, and our waiter was perfect. Thier "simply cooked" salmon was unseasoned. I didn't expect "simply cooked" to mean "without salt" but it was dry and bland. The top sirloin was over, and frankly tasted interesting but not good. Overall, it was fine. If I had paid half the price, it would have been a decent meal. But it was not worth the price at all.
Love the atmosphere. Great for a good meal. Decor is perfect for date night or business lunch. Welcoming staff and chic atmosphere. The Lobster Bisque soup was a tad bit salty for my taste but overall the food was enjoyable. Dessert was DELICIOUS. My waitress SHANICE was EVERYTHING. She recommended our wines to try, Dessert selections and cocktails. She was right on point. She made sure the food was prepared to our liking and had a very bubbly personality while being professional. KUDOS to EXEMPLARY CUSTOMER SERVICE. Will be back next time I'm in Charlotte to say hello and have a bite. My brother told me he eats here often.
So this was my first time here. I ordered the bourbon glazed salmon grilled and it was cooked well and the presentation including my margarita was great. We also ordered the crab stuffed salmon and it was cooked raw the first time. The second time it was partially rawthe manager was gracious to come and speak to us about it. Eva the waitress, was the best. Loved her Knowledge and personality. We ordered the parmesean crusted flounder and it looked amazing! All in all, it was good experience for my first time and I look forward to trying something different next time
We had chosen to have a celebration dinner recently. When we went, the restaurant had plenty of seating available (early dinner) and our waiter was fantastic. We wanted to order desert as an appetizer and it was a great start to the meal. Highly recommend any dishes here! The few times we have been, the food has always been excellent and the service as well.
The manager questioned my integrity!!! I understand that we're in a pandemic and restaurants are experiencing employee shortages BUT, my food was cold. I inquired about my food because it was taking so long to be served. We did have a large party with only one waitress and I assume she did her best. The manager told me that he was in the kitchen and the food was sent out as soon as it was prepared, which couldn't have been true unless it was prepared and sent from another location. He did offer to take it back and reheat it...No thank you sir, if you lied about seeing it sent out of the kitchen immediately why would I trust you to take it back. If my food had been served warm and the management had at least acknowledge it instead of telling me in so many words that it wasn't I may have had a pleasant experience.
