Located at Phillips Arena (on the corner) and thus very convenient. Ambiance is romantic and the meal was very good. We had the flour-less cake which was dry, hard and cold. Not good there.

cool atmosphere, kind of like a Mortons but food, though priced like a Mortons, was subpar. I had a steak, so-so at best, including the vegetables. Other diners said their fish was good. Won't return at these prices.

We recently dined here after visiting CNN. Having dined at McCormick & Schmick's in Oregon, I was disappointed with this experience. The Cedar Roasted Atlantic Salmon @ $16.50 was tasty. I opted for the broccoli. It was broccoli on the stalk; the florets had to be cut off the stalk and it was difficult to eat. I had to ask... More

Dined here before a hawks game. The food was good and the service was great. We were surprised how quick the food arrived. The prices are what you would expect for where it's located. It's definitely worth a visit and I'll probably go again when in the area.

The restaurant is located at the heart of down town Atlanta, in the CNN building, with good reviews from the Tripadvisor community. I booked a table in advance for Friday evening, and went with my husband. Our starters were the Fried Calamari and a Salad with a Shrimp skewer. The food was good but not great. My husband entrée was... More

McCormick & Schmick's is located in the South tower of the Omni CNN Center. Fantastic happy hour and bar area. Great food for happy hour (4-7) and on regular menu. Short walk from the Georgia Dome.

4 of us had the most wonderful waitress with true Southern hospitality. I thought the prices were high, but it is a beautiful restaurant and close to where we were staying. My friends thought the filet on the lobster/filet comb was very tiny. My salmon was tender, but the daily special of ginger/pear topping wasn't exactly to my liking. Our... More

It had been a long day and I just needed something to eat. And in the center of Atlanta that means either sports bars or McCormick and Schmicks. This place is overprices, the food has no flavor, and whatever lemon butter sauce they used on my fish had only a passing relationship with lemons or butter.

Average food and average service with above average prices. One half hour wait for our first cocktail and a three hour dinner. I would say that the service was slow. However, a conversation was difficult to to the noise level in the room. Extremely uncomfortable.
