“Great location, no waiting but out of signature items”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

The restaurant is located in Downtown Pittsburgh and the waitress prefaced our meal with the fact that they are the most busy during the week, not ever busy on the weekend. We ordered two lobster bisque and she had to check with the kitchen to see if they had any left as they did not make any fresh today. She returned to the table to let us know that they had none, we ordered the Calamri it was excellent and a very large portion for the price. Next I ordered the special; Filet Mignon and Lobster Tail, my better half ordered Live Maine Lobster, about 5 minutes later we were informed they were out of live Lobster but could do twin tails, live Lobster was $27.99 a pound and she ordered a pound when we recieved the bill we found that two frozen lobster tails were $45.98. Makes you wonder if they really have live Lobster. Food was good but disappointed in the service and the lack of menu items.

“Decent McCormick & Schmick”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

For a McCormick & Schmick it was quite decent. Food was done as expected. Service was slow and not very professional, and the depth of their knowledge and wine list is pretty shallow.

“Good food....reservation problem”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We dined at M&S Pittsburgh over New Year's. As always, the seafood was fresh, well prepared and tasty. The waitstaff was attentive and helpful.

They had fouled up our reservation, attributing it to another site in the suburbs, but our resulting wait was not very bad.

I always enjoy M&S, and will gladly dine in one anywhere, anytime.

“Tasty, fresh, reliable- WOW”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

We've been to M & S many times- weekdays, Sundays, busy days, quiet nights, and have never seen a difference in the quality of their fresh fish dishes. While this is obviously part of a chain, you get the feel of a high end private restaurant. Service is excellent. Bar menu is a great value and a lot of good food for the price.

“Just another chain”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

If you like a chain restaurant with good sea food, this is one of the many places Pittsburgh has to offer. Service was excellent, very friendly.
