My wife & I decided to eat someplace nice for my birthday and we chose McCormick & Schmick's. It was a great choice. We made reservations and arrived a little early and were seated very quickly. I had a Rib Eye that was excellent & my wife had Shrimp & Tuna which she said was excellent as well. I would... More

Had high hopes given how much we had enjoyed dining at the brand in San Francisco. Food would barely average -- fried fish too salty, french fries flaccid, broiled fish uninteresting. But the worse was the attitude of the waitress toward our food intolerances. She sighed, she screwed up her face, she tapped impatiently -- I was stunned by her... More

Our server did an incredible job taking care of us! I was traveling from out of town and my friends who live in the south bay came to join me for an evening and celebrate their 27th anniversary. Everything was just great-Food was excellent ( I had the rib eye, med. rare and it was done perfectly and the veggies... More

The environment was pleasant, in nice area of Irvine. Waiters were welcoming and the staff polite and pleasant. Food and waiter: for the appetizer ordered a salad consisting Iceberg wedges with walnuts and blue cheese (not a standard position on the menu) and for the main dish ordered a filet of sole with brocoli and potato purée. The issues: our... More

Well established with GREAT overpriced food but on several occasions, I've had poor service. The Shrimp Scampi was very good but overpriced for the really small shrimps and how dumb do they think you are that you're going to think you're getting Kobe Beef in the $18 "American Kobe Style Hamburger".....that's like "vegan-leather". After 20 minutes, I had to ask... More

We eat at this restaurant several times a year because we stay across the street at the Embassy Suites when we visit family in the area. It's a chain, this location has been here since I began coming to the area in the 90's.... We usually start at the bar, they have a good selection and some really nice bartenders.....and,... More

This in a convenient location near the airport. The restaurant is nice and cozy with a great menu with several options. The service was outstanding.

As we were staying next door we decided to give M&S a try. Although relatively new, the restaurant had the feel of someplace back in time with Booths and personal service. I am a steak fan so had to go with the sirloin. While it was good, as was my other halfs choice, it didn't really impress me especially considering... More

This is a convenient location for a traveler at Embassy Suites - John Wayne Airport. No wait on a Wednesday evening and prompt service. I had a Ribeye Steak with a Shrimp Kiss appetizer. Both were delicious. The mashed potatoes lacked much flavor. The meal is a little expensive but a good overall experience.

It was a long day as I had just flown in from Singapore earlier in the day, but despite the jetlag, I had an appetite for a nice dinner on my first day in Irvine. For all my trips to US I have generally been pleased with the restaurant experience, but this particular dinner at M&S, did not meet minimum... More
