Service was top notch. My husband required a special diet but unfortunately seafood entrees prepared so he had to go with chicken. My pan crusted trout had more bread than fish. Very disappointed. Before COVID the dishes were always a delight.

Chocolate silk pie was delicious.

They had less staff than needed like everyone else due to the state of affairs in our world now due to COVID-19 and it's impact on the work force.
We didn't have water for about 15 minutes and the bread was not ready in the kitchen. My teenagers were still hungry after the meal so the waiter (who was great) brought it to us after the meal and also complimentary dessert.
The food was amazing.

They were very accommodating when we asked for a less crowded area but they then took 15 minutes until someone came to offer us water. Eventually we had to stop a waiter snd asked who was suppose to wait on us. Apparently the waiter for our area did not show up tonight. Once someone else came to wait on us, the service was great.

Food was lukewarm and potatoes undercooked. Took well over an hr. Slow service. Yes, it was packed but dang, they should be used to this.

Food was good. Service was good. Steak was initially over cooked and had to be sent back. Probably overpriced when considering the the food was just good. We enjoyed our meal and the ambiance. Nothing exceptional.

Our server Melvina was excellent. Personable and knowledgeable of the menu. Considering the obvious short staff working that evening, she did a fine job. She was attentive and added positively to our dining experience. The menu and food was as good as ever. We've been going to McCormick and Schmick's for many years and are seldom disappointed. This visit was no exception. Highly recommended.

Our business dines at the McCormick’s at CNN aim Atlanta several times a year and we always look forward to a wonderful dining experience. We almost always choose the Seared rare ahi tuna as an entree and it’s always been fabulous. This time however, it was beyond spicy.…I personally had difficulty eating it. I cut the crust off the tuna as to reduce the spice. My companions who love spicy food also stated it was exceedingly hot and not to their liking as well. The EIM came out to discuss the spices they applied to the tuna. When we informed him that it had never been spicy in the past, he stated that they’ve always used the same spice mixture. This is totally untrue. Our mistake was not sending all the dishes back. The menu never states the word “SPICY”. We did begin our meal with the lobster bisque which was fabulous. Our waitress was also lovely and attentive. The manager did take 20% off our entrees but really?……. For a dinner that we found unacceptable, misrepresented on your menu?? I must say that I seriously doubt we will return. I’d love to hear from someone in the management team who represents McCormick’s…

Seated timely but waited 20 minutes for anyone to acknowledge us afterwards. Two of four meals had missing or incorrect items. Food was lukewarm at best when served. Had to ask multiple times for drinks, etc. At this price range, there have to be better options in this area. Will pass next time.

Celebrating our anniversary with a meal prior to an ATL United game at the Benz. M&S dished up a satisfying surf & turf meal with a sparkling wine. Quite, comfortable and relaxed. Yes we would go back.
Our seating by the host was a head scratcher. My wife's seat bumped up against another guest behind her. Slowly guests at five surrounding tables were clustered together while the remainder of the dining room was empty. So much for social distancing.

Very good food. Restaurant overall was busy and noisy. Our waitress was very attentive and did everything she could to take good care of us but the restaurant was under-staffed, like SO many other restaurants, so service was rather slow. Nevertheless we were glad to be here and enjoy drinks and good food with our friends!

We enjoyed the encrusted flounder, the sea bass, and sides. Food was hot and delicious and the service was prompt and friendly. We were pleasantly pleased with our downtown experience. Despite the bar being packed with conventioneers, we enjoyed M and S! Thanks.

Really appreciate the attentive young man that waited on my table. My first impression as I entered with another attendee from the conference was not encouraging and I hesitated if I would keep my reservation or not. My reservation was at 330 pm. myself and the other gentleman arrived 5 minutes early to be rudely greeted by the front desk. The young lady rudely informed us that they did not open until 330 pm and made it clear we were not welcome to wait in the lobby even tho the doors were open. It was very awkward as we moved to the exterior entry. Other than this unwelcoming exchange, the food presentation and meal was lovely. I would certainly return but hope the manager addresses the front desk etiquette.

The food was so good and the server was everything!!! Only complaint is the dress code! This is a VERY upscale restaurant and the dress code for everyone should match that. There were people in hoodies and hats on and that could honestly bring the value of a place DOWN! Overall great experience other than that.
