Had a great meal out. Food was fresh and of good quality. My bf got chicken (which was confusing to me) but it turned out to be very delicious, seasoned well and very juicy.

I ordered a M&S Grill and substituted the tuna in place of the given fish options. The meal was really good.

The service was very poor. I think our waitress just had too many tables to take cate of. The food was very good.

We arrived slightly early for our reservation, but it was not very busy. We waited 5 minutes before we were greeted at the hostess desk. Once seated, our server came to check on us. He did order a cheeseburger for our small child very early on which was great. We had the Chef's Choice tuna. One of the two pieces of tuna was full of tough cartilage. We informed the server who said he would let the Chef know. The piece of tuna was still on the plate when it was cleared. The server simply brought the check and didn't mention (or adjust for) the tuna.

The food was terrible. The lettuce in the salad was old and showed it. The truffle mac and cheese was burnt or something. Flavor was very odd. My burger was clearly a frozen patty. That was both burnt on the outside and sort of raw on the inside. It was like a bubba burger. I expected more. Felt like a bad chain restaurant. Like a poorly run outback.

Food was stunningly subpar. Fish tacos contained what looked like frozen thin hard fish of non descriptive origin. Fried shrimp was dry and way over cooked and small in portion. Fries were soggy. Tartar sauce and cocktail sauce were terrible. Calamari was undercooked and tasteless. Overall a really bad meal and cost about $30 per person. Terrible value at half the price. Oysters were good however.

Had dinner reservations after seeing the Chicago sites and River Cruise ....unfortunately our service was not as good for what we expected from an upscale restaurant, we were seated in the back and the waitress took forever to greet us ... we waited & waited ... no water no bread was offered .... just a menu the size of Alaska ..... once we were noticed and asked what to order ... the waitress was nice but unfortunately the level of service was not there ... our drinks were served as an after thought... and our bread showed up after our food ... the only highlight was the Prime Rib with Bone in Steak and the scallops was very good ... maybe stick to drinks & appetizers at the BAR Area .....unfortunately we will not return to this restaurant ... I noticed all the workers were to busy talking to each other and not the customers ... that also determines as better star rating....

The waiter was inattentive. When one of the wine glasses had a hole in it after pouring one glass, it was not clear whether he poured another glass to replace e that one or just used the same bottle. I guess we would have expected that or perhaps a replacement bottle. The lobster bisque looked as though it had been sitting out as it had a skin on top. The seared tuna was disappointing and did not appear as fresh as we have been accustomed to from this restaurant. The steaks were quite good and well prepared.
We have eaten in this chain in several other locations and had expected better quality of both food and service.

We enjoyed our food. We liked our waiter. He was very polite and on time. The place is a little bit too dark and gloomy for our taste. And we are not planning to return. Because when we ordered drinks they were not what we ordered so we decided not to drink them and we stick to tap water. We explained it to the waiter so he took drinks with him ... so literally we had a sip of it .... and then when it came to paying we saw on our receipt that we were charged for them. Well, we paid for them but we will never come back here because of it. We should have not been charge for them !

This is the second time M&S in Chicago has disappointed. Big prices but food and service fail to live up to them. Scallops barely warm and not quite four of them on an entree plate. Ok fish and chips at a premium price. Service not at all polished.
