Food was good but not superb. Oysters shucked had some green goo and bits of shells. Our waitress who was hurried the whole time also forgot our calamari. Was not keeping up with our waters or iced teas. She also rushed us through our meals. Asking about dessert when our main has only arrived 2 mins after. Our calamari arrived at the end of main entrees. She admitted to not putting order in. Had 2 bites left on apple pie dessert and she offered to take the plate already while my spoon was in hand. Also kept on taking her mask off especially while SHE spoke. My concern of course with that is her droplets landing on our faces as she stood above us while we are looking up at her like baby birds. She has a thick accent but we never had her repeat herself or talk louder so the mask removing while she spoke was a personal issue for her. We understood her the whole time. Drinks from the bar were delicious. I had 2 raspberry mules. Had no bits of raspberries in here though. This was an expectation since I frequent the National Harbor location and have ordered their fruity mule drinks before. My daughter had the strawberry mojito and she loved it. My husband loved the lobster bisque. I enjoyed the fish special. My daughter also had the salmon special.

I was very disappointed in this visit to McCormick and Schmick's. We went their in January (BC - Before COVID) for our 10th anniversary and it was AWESOME! This time was fair. The steak was good but the lobster was overcooked. They were kind to make another one, which was cooked perfectly but a little discolored (I didn't get sick!) and the potatoes were just undercooked cut red and white potatoes with herbs (something you could make at home yourself). The people (wait staff and manager) make the place - and the steaks. But we don't plan on spending that kind of money for a steak any time soon. Hope your experience is better!

The restaurant is beautiful and the food and service were amazing. The prices weren’t bad, and they have a wonder 3 course meal for $25. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Must finish with their apple pie.

It was SO good to be back among our friends at M&S! Greeted by the manager and staff as "family", the service was wonderful and Kyle was outstanding in his service!!!The 3 course dinner was just beautifully prepared and presented. As usual, the cuisine tasted exquisite. M&S is where we go to celebrate our family's special events and memories. The staff is very caring and attentive. It was so wonderful to be back after such a long time due to the pandemic. It was totally safe being there and the staff was extremely careful and aware to keep cleanliness and social distancing as paramount priorities while remaining very inclusive with us. An excellent choice for a meal at any time of day!

Met a friend for Restaurant Week lunch. She had the Salmon and I had the coconut shrimp, and, of course, we both had the Creme brûlée. Hers was good, as always, but I thought my shrimp were a little over-fried. Not quite as good as I expected. Both of our Creme Brûlée’s were a little overdone. We ate everything so not that bad, just not up to the great meal we had had there two weeks prior. We will be back as we love this place and it is a great spot for us to meet as we are coming from VA and MD, and not having to pay to park in the garages on the weekends is a definite plus.

We go here several times a year (even did take out a couple of months ago when there was no indoor dining) and is always a nice experience. Food is always very good and the are very accommodating to my wife’s GF requirements. This time was for Restaurant Week which was a starter, entree and dessert for 35pp, not including beverages. We both had the Filet Mignon, which was delicious. My wife had the crab soup, while I had the coconut shrimp for our starters. For dessert she had the creme brûlée whi how she said was one of the best she’d had, while I had the cheesecake, also very good. Our server Kyle was very attentive and the manager visited several times. Already looking forward to our next visit.

Staff was great. Food was horrible. Had Rockfish. No flavor. My friend had soup for first course, when our Rockfish was served, it seemed like they used the same soup over the fish.
The dessert was good, but the main course was awful. This was also during restaurant week. It seemed like they served half the size of fish. Don't waste your time, to many other good places in reston town center.

We enjoyed our dining experience - especially after being confined to home for so long. The Reston restaurant is our go-to for family get togethers. We love the food and service. Looking forward to more menu choices in the future since menu was limited.

The service was very poor. Was surprised as I have held M&S in high regard. Waiters don’t work together. Our was disorganized and no one jumped in to help him out. Food was ok, but along with service not a good value for the high prices.

Olga, our server, was absolutely amazing. My daughter and I were celebrating our birthdays. The food, ambiance and service was perfection. We also appreciated the yummy Cream Brûlée as a complimentary birthday dessert. Other staff members were quite enjoyable too. Overall, it was a great birthday dinner and experience!!

Been going to M&M for many years Very disappointed. Utensils to crack crab legs were terribly rusted, good thing we didn't use them. Dessert was literally frozen. Table was on sidewalk right next to entrance. Very, very disappointed.

I almost never write negative reviews. The ribeye steaks were chewy, the cooking instructions for one of the ribeye steaks and the filet mignon were mixed, the potatoes were not cooked well, and the plates were greasy.
I don’t know what happened. We like this chain and came to celebrate 25 years anniversary wedding for dear friends.
Hope things get better

Not good! Poor menu to select from and the one item I go there for — the Maryland crab soup was eliminated from the menu. Way to go Tillman, I quit going to Mortons because you ruined it too. What else can you ruin?

We were happy to get out of the house during COVID-19 restrictions opening up and during the week. We were the only ones sitting on our side of the front door outside and had a wonderful time catching up with great food and drinks and they even brought out a birthday cheesecake with 2 lit candles since it was my birthday and another person's birthday was coming up and it was slightly windy that day. Service was perfect!

Dinner with my Mom and her partner Vaughn. We had some drinks to start - I recommend the raspberry mule. All of our meals (steak meal, Caesar salad with a crab cake, and my stuffed salmon) were magnificent. We also split a slice of chocolate silk pie, which was delicious and rich and perfect to split. Service was fantastic, and ambiance was just right for a lively discussion about the world we’re living in right now - and we dined outside, watching protesters pass that are fighting for racial equality. 10/10 meal - we will be back.
