“Great food and wonderful location”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We went here at the invitation of friends and, at first, I thought we should go somewhere else since we have McC & S back home but it turned out great. Our service was excellent as was the food. We had oysters and salmon and crab and even finished off assorted desserts.

“Great Happy Hour”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

A varied happy hour menu and of course discount drinks and a good way to spend a Friday afternoon after a long work week. A little more upscale than a standard pub, the prices were still reasonable. We had a couple of the local brews on tap and shared several courses off of the hapy hour menu including sliders, sweet potato fries, bruschetta and artichoke dip. Parking on the street or in one of the parking garages. Service was very good - attentive but not pushy.

“Think twice before dining here”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

M&S used to be a good restaurant to take your clients/colleagues out to. Took 10 people to M&S in downtown Seattle. Hostess was great! Took our reservation at the last minute, very professional, friendly and a delight person to talk to. But our experience went down hill from there. Seems like the waiter knew that he was automatically getting 18% gratuity, so he did not want to earn it. We had to ask for our water and drinks two or three times. Very slow to take our order. Didn't explain the menu to us (I had 3 Russians, 2 Germans and 1 Singaporean with me). Also, M&S was sold out of 3 items on the menu which the waiter neglected to disclose when taking order. Also, food showed up very late.

Some of us were not too impressed by the food quality. Salmon was dry and one of was the dish was returned as the waiter mixed up the order.

Their drinks were good. We order 5 bottles of wine and a bunch of cocktails as they were really good. Yes, even thought we had to ask 2 or 3 times every time we ordered drinks, we were willing to put up with the bad service because of the quality of the drinks. At the end, we spent $1,100 (yup, tip was about $180) but left with a sour taste in our mouth as the waiter or the food did not deserve the $1,100 check.

Filed a complain with the M&S about the service. To my surprise, received a call from the manager of the restaurant. Told her that I will try her restaurant again next time I am in Seattle. Stay tuned as I will be writing another review.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Service was great and the food was delicious. I wish our waiter had been more friendly, but he was nice and we had great service.
The atmosphere where we sat was quiet and romantic. We truly miss our McCormick and Schmick's in Orlando and so glad to be able to return to this fine restaurant.
