Good seafood, great service

We took my elderly parents here for dinner. The entrance was handicapped accessible with several staff ready and willing to help get a wheelchair and walker into the restaurant. I had called ahead and asked for a table not a booth to accommodate our needs. They remembered to seat us as I had... read more

Stopped in for lunch on a beautiful day and was surprised to find ample seating. While the hostess/host station was empty, my wait was short and the greeting seemed sincere. Once seated it took several minutes for a server to greet me even though he passed by a few times. Once he took my order a second server rushed over... More

I dined here on a Monday night, in the bar area. Not many people were in there. There seemed to be one waiter and one bartender. Service was slow, but staff was friendly. I order hummus as a starter because it would be quick and I was starving. It was not quick and when it came out, the pita bread... More

This place was amazing!!!!!!! The service was top notch! I'm not much of a seafood eater but our waitress gave me a few suggestions. The food presentation was spectacular and the taste absolutely amazing! The food took a little longer than expected to arrive at our table but was very fresh! The appetizers and desserts were also fantastic (note-the appetizers... More

A wonderfully fabulous meal! Our server was great and very helpful! She made our evening that much more enjoyable! Kobe burger made a very savory meal! The mashed potatoes were so well seasoned, we were stuffed but had to go back for a few more bites! We sat in the bar area and had a delightful evening!

We took our sister and brother-in-law to this, one of their favorite restaurants in the city, to celebrate their anniversary. The food was only mediocre and the prices were very high for what we got. The service was great and the servers friendly but they couldn't make up for our disappointment in the food.

We were staying at Sofitel next door for business meetings, arrived late and dropped in McCormick's for dinner. 5 people total. Waitress seemed really indifferent and aloof. Took some work to understand special's and menu. It was a week night, about 8 pm, and many tables were open yet our food took a long time to arrive. It tasted very... More

Had lunch here and it was quite enjoyable. The ambience was outstanding. Great view of Rush Street. The wait staff was awesome. Our waiter, Collin, was super attentive. The lobster bisque was very good. The buttermilk fried shrimp were just ok.

We generally like this chain restaurant at this location. However, the walleye pike was not to usual standards. I was remiss not to mention it, I am sure they would have made it right. The service was good . But the food was mediocre at best.

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
