This is a nice restaurant and would have said it was great if the food was better and if I did not have to wait so long for my food. What is it in Chicago with the restaurants, this was the second restaurant that I went to that I had to wait for my food. The excuse at this one... More

We now make a point of having at least one meal at M and S when we're in Chicago (and in other cities that host one). Had an early dinner. Place was almost full. The company is celebrating its 35th anniversary with a special menu and a couple of select wines ... at $35 they are half price. So we... More

This was a Ladies' Nite affair that started with our outstanding meal here. Fantastic cocktails, which were reasonably priced, was where we began. Choices were many and our server allowed for flexible substitutions with our entrees. We were too full for desert but we plan to go back!!

We wanted somewhere near our hotel for dinner, and this place had caught our eye as we walked past most days. It has an attractive open courtyard seating area, but this was a sultry evening after a hot sultry day so we chose to eat inside in the cool. Here we sat up at a bar table and chose from... More

I have eaten here twice while at a meeting in Chicago. The restaurant is attractive and roomy and the staff are very pleasant, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the menu and wine list. We had a huge variety of starters and main courses and all were delicious. The steaks are fabulous and cooked perfectly to your preference. We shared starters and,... More

We were looking for a place to have nice drink and watch the Blackhawks play the Kings. We also needed food. I asked the bartender, a woman if she knew how to make a French 75 and she said yes. She made the first one and I said that's not a French 75. I told her how to make it... More

After waiting for over two hours for a table promised at a nearby restaurant, we gave up and went for a walk looking for a place to eat on a Saturday night. We found McCormick & Schmick's and there was no wait, (though far from empty), an excellent menu and friendly, helpful service. We finally got the good meal we... More
