    Took my husband out for his birthday. I have to say, I was very underwhelmed. The place was old and dingy. The service was great, food was prompt. My steak was over cooked. Probably wouldn’t go back. I’ve been to the one in Philadelphia and Baltimore before. They were both great. Don’t know what happened with this one. Sorry

    I have always enjoyed McCormick and Schmick's in various cities including Chicago and Baltimore. However, the DC location was not as good as the rest of them considering the cost. Food was good, menu more limited then others or at least in the past. Service was not very good, I would say fair at best. I believe this was due to insufficient staff and the fact that we were seated around several large groups. I believe the waiter had us as well as at least two large groups. There were only two of us in our party. It took a very long time to get our drinks and appetizers.

    We had Bacon wrapped brie stuffed Shrimp for an app-excellent. We also had a cup of clem chowder-not very tasty and too many potato in it. Entree of crab topped swordfish over spinach was delicious and my sons blackened salmon salad was ver good also. Fish and chips were very good. Server was excellent and dinner was enjoyed.

    It was very nice. We arrived drenched due to a sudden downpour and were able to relax, unwind and dry a bit at the bar before going to our table. The temperature was such that we didn’t freeze even though we were wet! The bartender was friendly and efficient. Our waiter was so charming and provided just the right amount of attention. The steaks were unbelievable! We both got 13 oz strips and could not finish! The caprese was delicious even though it was made with cherry tomatoes and small mozzarella balls as our preference is slices. Great experience.

    Don't listen to the one star reviews. Was it perfect? No. But it was good food, reasonable quality service and the price point was not bad. If your expecting the kind of service and food you get at a $80 plate restaurant, you'll be disappointed. But if your looking for a reasonably priced and just good food, go here.

    The food was pretty good- the waited made sure changes were made to accommodate my picky mother. The only uncomfortable thing was the aggressiveness of the waiter (when he was present). I was having dinner with my parents for Father’s Day and english is their second language/ normally I will order for her or my father will. When we went to speak, the waiter basically shushed us and said “ladies first” - putting her on the spot like that was awkward- and as grown people- no one should be shushing me - especially when I’m the guest/client. It’s 2022 and faux chivalry is not cute. A lot of the time the waited just wasn’t present - we had to ask for him several times. Besides that everything was great. My very picky mom enjoyed her meal.

    HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE. The worst service and the most errors I have ever experienced. On top of huge delays, order errors and a lack of follow through, the air conditioning was out in the restaurant and the women's bathroom was out of soap. Great for staff…. I have no words….

    Food was overall good. Restaurant was empty but service was inexplicably lax. Server never asked if we wanted a 2nd glass of wine nor refilled our after-dinner coffee. He forgot our side vegetable order and we had to flag him down. My fish was supposed to have a red pepper sauce with bacon. I asked for it without bacon so it came without it plus without the red pepper sauce. Disappointing.

    We visited M&S on K for Mother’s Day dinner and had a lovely time. We made reservations in advance and not only were they friendly and accommodating with us running a few minutes behind, but as were also given a private dining area which was a pleasant surprise. The service was excellent. Very attentive and quick. Most importantly, the food was great and did not disappoint anyone at the table. We all emptied our plates. The drinks were also great. Try any of their non-alcoholic lemonades from their extensive drink menu. If you are into adult beverages, their Margarita is excellent. Not too strong, not watered down. Highly recommend this restaurant. We plan on becoming regulars for sure.

    Service was very slow and food was lukewarm/average. Calamari was not fresh and came lukewarm twice. Cheesecake didn’t taste like cheesecake. Crystal City Va location food & service is far better. I will not be returning to DC location and parking is horrible. Very dissatisfied Mother’s Day!
