Delicious Fish

We ate here Saturday evening and had no problem getting a table. For an appetizer we ordered shrimp cocktail - cocktail sauce was very good with a little horseradish. We've had better shrimp, I would say they were just average. Split a Cesar salad which was just okay. Our fish entrees made up... read more

I went there with a group of friends on business. Reservations were easy within an hour or so of seating on a Sat night (in Jan. you know -wind and snow). We ordered drinks. As perfect, shard of ice and to the rim martinis as I've ever had! Then, we ordered dinner. I had grilled mahi mahi which is served... More

Chicago has great seafood and one of the best places to get it is at McCormick and Schmick located on the north end of downtown on the Chicago river across from Trump Tower. My wife and I were staying at a nearby hotel and decided to walk to dinner rather than drive or take a cab. We were so glad... More

If you call ahead for a reservation and have a special occasion, they will print up a special menu just for you. The food is always great, don't care what location. You are always best off with the seafood, but salads, veggies, and other meat dishes all rise to the same standard. Very good selection of wines and drinks so... More

Clean restaurant, excellent service, and classy atmosphere. The house wine was divine. Bread was served prior to ordering. We ordered the seafood stuffed flounder and the chicken pasta and a dinner salad. The food was good but not the best dinner we've ever had. Dinner and drinks for 2 would cost upwards of a hundred dollars. We're glad to say... More

We ate late on Christmas day and found a wonderful experience. Our waitress was very warm and welcoming and the food was great. Despite being very busy we were welcomed on arrival and they apologized for the short wait for our reservation. We never felt rushed. A lovely Christmas memory.

We had a reservation and were promptly seated on Christmas Eve 2014. Table shared Shrimp Kisses for an appetizer. Entrees included Chilean Sea Bass, Mixed Grill, Stuffed Shrimp and Seafood Trio. All of the entrees were delicious. Will definitely return. Great service. Good wine selection.

We had the Filet and stuffed shrimp, and it was made with perfection! The service was excellent and the atmosphere was very nice! We highly recommend this place if you are looking for a quality steakhouse.
