A few of the guys I work with and I decided to stop here for dinner when we were in Irvine for a business trip. We'd all been to the one in Chicago (which was great) and it was wakling distance from our hotel. We arrived around 6:30 and should have known something was up when we saw the restaurant... More

If you are in the mood for good seafood locally, you can't go wrong here. This chain restaurant provided a nice atmosphere, good seafood and excellent service. It was directly across the street from the Embassy Suites, so very convenient if you are staying there. Front desk even provides a coupon for a free appetizer!

We usually love McCormick's and have been to many. This one left a lot to be desired. The fish I ordered was very blah with no flavor and the waitress had no idea what she was doing. Very poor and inattentive service.

Fantastic experience. Birthday for our son in law. Good price for value. Great waiter--sorry I don't remember his name. Would definitely return. Within walking distance from the Wyndham Irvine. Dessert was great also.

Great looking place; good service; etc. 4-5 star... Until my turkey burger came. Dry & tasteless. I was hungry so I ate it. Should have stayed home... My wife's is 10x better. She adds a grated apple, cranberries & basil, topped with cranberry mustard. This was very poor fare for a well-reputed establishment. But restaurants are & should be about... More

Ate the fish & chips lunch. Good portion size, It was well prepared and served hot. Most dishes are a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. Service was excellent and our waiter was very attentive.

I've been to several other M/S places and had pretty good food. I had a few of the tuna appetizers on the happy hour menu. It was just average, I'm not going into full boycott mode, but it was just not up to par this time
