Reviewed October 28, 2013

Good spot for dinner if you are at the Georgia Congress. Otherwise, I wouldn't seek this place out. Nothing major wrong with it, other than very noisy, but nothing outstanding either.

“Awesome meal”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

We have had dinner here two nights in a row. Happy hour is 4-7pm and their apps are incredibly priced. First night we ate in the dining room and the service was fantastic. Herb crusted halibut was amazing as was the upside down Apple pie. Don't miss out in it. Second night was the calamari appetizer for $4.99 and seared scallops with crab hash which was delicious.

“Great food, Great service”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We were here with a large party (19: 8 children, 11 adults). The waitstaff was very attentive and friendly, and we did not have to wait long for anything. The waitress who waited on the kids (mostly preteens) table was very patient and friendly as well. The food and drinks were great, and the atmosphere was perfect. Will definitely return again next April.

“Location can't be beat when at a convention or the CNN Center”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

This is a great place for when you have spent all day at a trade show and want to take folks out to dinner. Yes its a steakhouse, but it is very focused on seafood, so if your guests aren't into that (or are for that matter) be aware. Our waitress, JP was great, she could not have been better, just the right mix of personality, attention and space. She knew all of our names by the time appetizers were done.

“A trusty standby for seafood”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We have eaten at several McCormick and Schmick's restaurants in several cities, last visiting this particular one six or seven years ago. It's in a great location -- actually part of the CNN Center -- and we remembered a fine meal there before. Not disappointed this time, either. We enjoyed crab and corn chowder as an appetizer, followed by fried shrimp for me and parmesan flounder for my spouse. The chowder was rich and creamy. My shrimp were lightly battered (I could taste the buttermilk) and generously sized. The parmesan flounder was flaky and accompanied by colorful mixed veggies. She had an Irish coffee for dessert. I had peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream - a large serving that even I could not finish. It was a good meal, but understand that McCormick and Schmick's is not the place to get a quick bite. Service is leisurely, so expect to spend 45 minutes to an hour from seating until leaving. But, it's time well spent.
