Well McCormicks has finally succumb to the bad frozen seafood, waitstaff yelling at one another and overpriced meals to be replaced by another same type of "upscale" restaurant. BUT a new coat of paint and a refresh of the interior when it is the same owners running it, it becomes obvious that nothing has really changed. Abra Cadabra, its a... More

And it was enjoyable. If I have to compare it though to Legal Seafood in Paramus, I do like Legal Seafood better.

From the friendly wait staff to the delicious cuisine this is a great place to stop by, get a good meal and do some shopping at Riverview Mall. Great decor and atmosphere for a fun day out with family,friends, or going solo. I was dining alone and the wait staff was courteous and friendly and made me feel like I... More

Mc Cormick has some of the best seafood selections around. We love the seared tuna, and the full service bar. The waiters are always courteous and friendly. For a romantic night, ask for the private booths, they are more intimate.

We used to go to the restaurant frequently but the decline was jarring this visit. The prices are up, the quality, selection, and portions down. The server was very attentive but had to try to sell us a points program at the table which was awkward. Everything was...ok...but I don't want to go back.

This was a restaurant that you could always count on for a good seafood meal, with attention to details. They just do not care any more, an absolute dive in quality in the last two years. Our last three meals have been the same. The food is delivered luke warm to cold, the fish is of mediocre quality and the... More

M&S is a chain, so it's not fair to expect excellence, but at the prices they charge, I expected well executed and fresh. Started with a well done sangria - no syrup just fresh fruit juices & wine. Great, refreshing drink. Bread was ok - pedestrian but cold. Ordered the Lump Crabcakes w/mashed potatoe & mixed veggies. The veggies were... More

It's M&S. the food is good. The drinks are good. It is dark and a good place for business lunches or dinners. But if you have been to one you have been there, no need to go back.

I generally like M&S, and have had some good meals at other locations....most recently in NYC. But of late, the last two visits to the location in Hackensack indicated a big nose dive has taken hold and with all the other great seafood and fish options in the area, I suggest taking this place off of your list and saving...

McCormick & Schmick's has an excellent reputation, and many of its locations deserve that! However, I was unimpressed with this particular restaurant, where I took my mother to lunch recently. First, the service was VERY SLOW, despite the fact that only a few patrons were in the restaurant at the time. Second, I felt that the meal was quite overpriced.... More
