Wonderful food and reasonably priced for lunch. My husband and I eat hear every time we come to K.C. besides Ruth's Chris this is one of my favorite places to eat and we always come at lunch time, the prices are reasonable and the food is fabulous, I always order the parmesan crusted talapia "costa rica", it is wonderful and my husband loves there fish tacos which are fabulous also, we are going to K.C. this weekend for my birthday and I made it a point that I wanted to eat there 2 times while we are there
Anniversary Occassion was great!. We made reservations 2 weeks in advance for a Saturday at 6:15 for our Anniversary. We were seated when we arrived within less than one minute. For an appetizer we had crab cakes and a salad. For our entree we both had the Mixed Grill, which was a combination plate of scallops, shrimp, steak and Atlantic Salmon. We were tempted to order the Alaskan Salmon however. Our food was cooked perfectly and was just the right portion. Our service was prompt and attentive. Our waitress was very courteous and our table was kept clean of dirty dishes. We were given fresh napkins with our complimentary desert, which was apple pie. We were very pleased and would definitely return. We have never had fresh seafood on the east or west coast so we can not attest to its freshness but we enjoyed our food immensely.
Disappointing. We dined here on September 3, 2006. We made reservations for 7:30 p.m. two weeks in advance. We arrived at 7:20 and checked in. When we still had not been seated by 7:50 we requested that we be seated, and we finally were, only to wait a long time for service. We ate at Jake's in Portland, last month, which is also owned by McCormick and Schmick. The KC McCormick and Schmick did not even begin to compare to Jake's. Overall, the food was expensive and of only average quality. The service was slow and fairly inattentive. Our reservation was virtually worthless. It is doubtful that we will return anytime soon.
Outstanding seafood in the Midwest. My fiance and I recently dined here with my sister and her boyfriend. We had a reservation (I highly recommend getting one) and were seated promptly. Everything was exquisite, and our waiter was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about their menu choices. I had the Mako shark steak and my finace had the Halibut; both were outstanding! For dessert we had the creme brulee, while my sister and her boyfriend tried the pecan pie; both were definitely worth saving room for. Overall, I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants great seafood while visiting in Kansas City.
I've had better.... I've heard such good things about this restaurant, which is probably why I was so underwhelmed. Our waitress left much to be desired. I was tempted to take a dollar off her tip for every time she called someone at our table "love". We had the unfortunate luck to be next to the party room which was loud and subsequently caused our food to arrive very slowly. The food was only okay, but we all highly enjoyed the chocolate bag dessert. Not sure if this place is worth another try or not.

When my friends and I decided to eat here we didnt know what to expect other than that we would be eating seafood, and let me say, all of us were stunned at how wonderful the food was. It was a beautiful day so we took advantage of their very nice outdoor seating and were served by some of the nicest people. Our food was presented so well and arrived very fast, not to mention it was some of the best seafood I have ever had.
If youre ever in the mood for amazing food, great people, and a very beautiful environment I would highly recommend this place to you.
This high-powered restaurant wins with classic seafood dishes and a posh atmosphere..
Popular for both romantic dates and business dinners, this chain exudes an upscale clubby mood. Art deco-inspired decor adorns the interior--dark wood, shiny brass and sparkling beveled glass--and black-clad servers with sharp white shirts weave through the cocktail-swilling crowd at the bar. The classic seafood menu is seasonally inspired and changes daily, offering dishes like shellfish and creamy clam chowder and Bay shrimp cakes. Sweet, delicate Dungeness crab is the winning house specialty.
Close to Perfect.
I have been here numerous of times. From Grand Opening to a month ago.
Our company went to Christmas dinner here (group of 20). Reservations were made and everything was set. The staff was excellent and attentive to everyone's needs. The food couldn't have been better. However, a few did mention that their food was dried out. The only complaint I had was that they could have spaced our group out a little more (we were crowded at tables put together - with not enough room to move in our own seats).
Personal lunches have been excellent experiences. The staff had great knowledge of the dishes. If they didn't know - they would go to find out.
Overated Happy Hour. I went in one evening for McCormick's happy hour which I had heard so much about and was very disapointed. The service was awful. The waitress took forever to greet the table and did not even offer us a second round. It was like she was trying to push us out of the restaurant. My friend and I both worked in the service industry and were very surprized. The food was alright but not the calibur of food I've had there before. I will go back in for dinner any time but never again for the happy hour.
PamelaBramlett. I like McCormick & Shmicks, but your listing of the resturaunt as romantic is totally erroneous. Unless your idea of romance is a hot date with your taxidermist.
