McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Baltimore
Great for birthday celebration and couples evening.
While the food was overall very good, the service was severely lacking. We understood that it was a holiday and the place was packed, but waiting over an hour for our meal was a little ridiculous. We kept having to remind our server about drinks that were ordered. I don’t think I will return for holiday dining, but I would be willing to give the place another chance.
The service was excellent. The food was good, but nothing better than restaurants that are much less expensive.
Thanksgiving, but a mediocre food. Probably the worst turkey I’ve ever had. Turkey was tough and gamey in taste. Mashed potatoes were microscopic in size.
What a wonderful way to spend Thanksgiving with my son. I enjoyed that my menu had my name on it. The good was great and enjoyed my meal. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a wonderful meal and atmosphere.
Dinner brought out before we even RECEIVED our drinks. Loud music not FESTIVE, who wants to listen to Ariana Grande over Thanksgiving dinner?! Food was actually pretty good. Hostess balked because we wanted a table not surrounded by other busy tables, rookie hostesses are always stunned by this request. As with other chains, food was fine, but nobody trains staff. Bad experience. Won't return.
Shawn was an excellent sever. He was very busy with one other table of two being somewhat demanding as if he had no other tables to wait on.
Food tasted great, but it took a really long time to get it. We were there for Thanksgiving dinner, so there were a lot of large parties.
Sides were all served cold. Steak was under cooked. King crab legs perfect. Waiter returned our parking ticket he said it was validated and it was not. Servers delivering food were I'll trained. This was a special Thanksgiving dinner for my mother. I would call it disappointing.!
Thanksgiving Day 2019
The food was amazing, the server (Kelly) was awesome!!!
Everything she did was great, time was becoming long and an hour had gone by and this all included appetizers as well. But we understood why the wait was a little longer than the first time we came to the restaurant also taking in consider it was a holiday but once the food came it was so good we forgot about the wait. We were a party of 6 and everyone loved their food.the food is great♥️
Love the food and the service. It's my favorite place to eat.
We were so looking forward to dining at this restaurant. Nice place. Music was a little loud and not appropriate for a fine dining restaurant. Wait staff was dancing on our way to our table. (Johnny Rockets?) Waiter was good. Took his suggestion and had a sampler main course. One expects to have properly prepared seafood in a seaport such as Baltimore. This food was clearly plated and either sat under a heat lamp for hours or they have no idea of how to prepare seafood. Everything was overcooked and poorly seasoned. For the price, everything should be cooked to order. Very, very disappointing. We cruise out of Baltimore every year. Have eaten at Miss Shirley's, Phillips's, The Rusty Scupper, Fogo de Chao, Sip and Bite and others. We decided to skip desert and go to the Cheesecake Factory for desert. It was also in poor taste to have the waiter trying to get us to join a dining club while we ate. Maybe they were having a bad night? Maybe we ordered the wrong items? Too many things make me wonder what kind of management is letting all of this happen. Get it together! Be the place you advertise yourself as.
Brittany was very knowledgeable. She did a wonderful job with the fancy drinks table side preparation. Beautiful setting.
Brittany as our server was amazing. What a special night!!
I have to add more to this because Brittany and the entire staff was beyond amazing. From the special way they treated us and my girlfriend. Brittany even brought out a free dessert to celebrate our special occasion. The food was outstanding too! Can’t wait to go back!
Thank you for the veterans day meal. the serving size was perfect because I normally cannot finish a meal. Thanks again for your support
The food was EXCELLENT!! The service was Outstanding; the staff very professional and friendly and the view was breathtaking.
We went for their Veterans Day special. It is by far the best meal you will get on Veterans Day.
My husband and I made reservations for 8:00, to celebrate our anniversary. We checked in at 10 till 8 and the hostess told us we could wait at the bar until a table opened. There was a male employee standing near her and he told my husband “at the rate this is going you’re better off ordering at the bar.” We waited until 8:40 and finally just ordered food at the bar. The wait staff and bartenders complained loudly all night about how they were ready to go home and the day had been too long and busy. We were told the restaurant was out of bread completely. When our food came and we asked for linens and utensils they gave us cocktail napkins. They said they were out of linens as well. This was definitely not the experience we expected at McCormick and Schmidt’s.
We waited for a waiter after being seated at our table for what I think was unwelcoming, I estimate the wait to be thirty (30) minuets or more, after placing our orders another 30 to 45 minuets passed before we received our food. We got no bread, and when we requested bread, we were told that the restaurant had run out of bread. In my 78 years of life, eating in restaurants all over the world, this was the first time a restaurant had run out of bread. I have had very pleasant dining experiences at M&C restaurants before.
I took my dad to McCormick & Schmick's on Sunday for Veteran's Day!! We had a great time as both his and my meal were complimentary and delicious!! We got nice homemade bread served to our table before we ordered and also ordered our drinks - I got the calamari for both of us for an appetizer and we both ordered the fried shrimp which came with fries and cole slaw! It was really great!! For dessert, we both ordered the upside down cinnamon apple pie with cinnamon ice cream!! Really incredible awesome! We had a nice time and dad talked about it all the way home! Thanks again for a great day!! So really nice that you do this for the veterans as they sure deserve it!!
This has been one of the best downtown Baltimore restaurants to honor Veterans. Outside of November the 10th, I have visit here several times and I have found it to be the same. A great place to visit with friends and family. The food is awesome and timeliness to receive your meal was found to be head above most of the other downtown restaurants.
Excellent place to celebrate a special occasion . as well as spend an evening with friends and family
We went there for Veterans Day and they treated all vets and their families with extreme respect. It was a very nice touch having the POW/MIA table in front of the restaurant. Service was wonderful Can't wait to go back.
We like M&S as a rule
However, we were disappointed to say the least
Neither the hostess or our waiter Juan took the extra place settings away
The clam chowder was basic and not particularly tasty
The Fish & Chips Was uninspiring!
Juan was utilitarian and did his best to “upswell” throughout
Overall, we were disappointed
However, we will likely try another M&S - likely not in Baltimore
What a great waiter and venue to have a quiet business lunch. The service was impeccable but not intrusive. Our waiter was there when we needed him.
The food was the main event. Oysters were as fresh as if they were just harvested. The crab cake sandwich was very filling and tasty. Will be back in two weeks for lunch again!
Service was fantastic. Food prepared well.
The restaurant staff were great!!! They were accommodating with our late arrival. They provided a free dessert for our bride to be and of course the filet and crab cake were amazing!!!
The staff providing our service and the food was excellent!!!
Experience was outstanding. The service was great and the food was fantastic. I had the filet and crab cake and my wife had the crab stuffed shrimp. We ended the dinner with the upside down apple pie that was unbelievable.
Kelly provided wonderful, prompt customer service. The food was delicious.
Bring your flashlight to read the menu. The food was excellent and the service was good but not outstanding.
Service was meh but the location is excellent! Food was very decent, better then expected.
Service was very amateur especially for the price
Drinks made at the table was spectacular! Fun. Oysterology was awesome. Enjoyed dinner.
I was denied Keylime pie because it hasn’t sent yet. But the apple dessert I got instead was delicious
We went here for my husband’s 50 birthday and we were very disappointed! The service was slow, the food was just ok(definitely not worth the price), the parking was very expensive and we were told they couldn’t validate or ticket! Its nothing like it used to be! The best part was our waiter, who was nice. We will never return to this restaurant!
We went early so the restaurant was very quiet which we enjoyed. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The crab stuffed shrimp was excellent, but for the price I felt 5 wasn’t enough to fill me up. The restaurant is a bit pricy as most items are a la carte. We realize most restaurants in that area are the same; nothing included with the main course. The waitress we had was outstanding.
Food was very good but service was terrible. We were seated at 7:30. We did not get to order until 8:10 and it was after 9:00 before we had our food.
Everything was perfect!
Everything was great. From the service, to food, to ambiance. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to sit back and relax; take in the beauty of the night
