Everything about this restaurant was mediocre. The food. The service. The drinks. We came because we had a giftcard. Will likely not come back.

Unable to rate M&S grill as we ate at McCormick & Scmicks Restaurant. We made a reservation from Open Table thinking it was the restaurant, not the grill. When we arrived they didn't have our reservation and questioned whether we had the reservation at the grill. Why didn't they call the grill to ascertain this? It was Friday night at 6:30 and they were not very busy so we were seated at our choice of seats, a snug which had been requested through our internet reservation. I assume the grill does not have snugs so why didn't they respond with that request which obviously could not be met.
I just went online for McCormick & Schmicks and was taken to the grill - very confusing.

My brother and I went for Christmas Day lunch and everything was absolutely superb ... from the mouth-watering/excellently prepared food (we had appetizers and dessert as well) and great wine to the friendly managers who stopped by, the low-key ambiance, and the excellent but nonintrusive server, Quinn! This is now our go-to restaurant for delicious food at a great price point ... especially for holiday meals b/c they're open 365 days a year ... woohoo!!!

For whatever reason, despite living here in Reston for the past seven years, this is only my second time eating here at M&S Grill. For whatever reason, we always overlook this place, but are always reminded the food & wine always are a pleasant surprise. We will be back again.

Its been ages since I've been to M & S-we had gift cards to use and desperately needed both a kids-free date night and a steak...M & S did NOT disappoint from the appetizers to the main course to dessert. Best top sirloin I've had in a long time and the meatloaf my husband ordered was quite possibly the best we've ever had (although I always tease him for ordering meatloaf at nice restuarants!) Young man who served us was pleasant and attentive without being a nuisance. We will be back!

While the decor was very nice, the service and quality of food was lacking. We had a table of four for dinner. When the rolls came out, they gave us each one. One of the party had soup and asked for another roll and again, he brought out just one for her. The stuffed mushrooms were good and the crabcake was fine (not the best) but the trout and the rice and beans with catfish were unappetizing at best. The server couldn't hear anything over the noise (its holiday time so a noisy restaurant is expected) but he disappeared for very long periods at a time. We travel to that conference annually and will not return to that restaurant again.

We made our reservations through the McCormick and Schmick site, clicking on the link to reserve, which took us to Open Table. Made the reservation, enjoyed a great dinner - and did not realize til later, after wondering why the restaurant did not have our confirmed reservation, that the reservation turned out to be for M & S Grill and not the related restaurant we intended to book for. Have been to, and eaten very well at, both restaurants!

There for Thanksgiving. Food and onion soup was cold even though the plates were hot. Server was not attentive. Recommended expensive wines and then said he didn’t know much about wine. Had to go to bar to refill our soda. Slices of pie were tiny but tasty. Manager was apologetic and corrected everything. Would not go back.

We were very appreciative of the restaurant honoring veterans. Between my husband and I we served for 42 years total. The food was great. I have a concern about our bill. Our receipt shows $27.77. The receipt does not show a place for a tip. We left a $5.00 cash tip. (Table 123/1 reprint receipt # 100223. The amount that appeared on our bank record was $ 37.77. Right now I'm confused. Always check your bill and make sure you have the receipt that shows the tip line.

M&S grill offers Veteran’s lunch one day a year around Veterans Day. There is a special menu list for this meal. We go every year. We go here when we are in the Reston Town Center.
I don’t drink beer but others in my party did and they found beers they like.
The staff are very friendly and efficient. I like how they say “my pleasure” whenever you ask for something. It’s kind of old fashioned but it’s such a nice touch.
The manager passed out post cards to fill out. He collected them at the end of the meal and is going to send them to veterans in hospitals.
This is a great place if you are a picky eater or have allergies. They will adapt for you.

M&S Grill has a patio cigar bar right outside the front door. Not only do you have to walk through a fog of smoke to enter the restaurant, but the smoke permeates the entire restaurant. Unless you prefer to dine while inhaling second hand smoke, mediocre service, and mediocre food, you should go elsewhere.

This was the beginning of a fairly terrible date night. Restaurant was empty, but this is Wednesday so I wasn't exactly expecting it to be packed. We began the night with a rather gritty, luke warm lobster bisque - very underwhelming considering our previous visit in April was significantly better. The few other tables around us received the typical welcome bread, which we did not. The one order of Tender Beef Medallions was not cooked as we ordered, and by the time the corrected order came out, the my husband had finished his meal. It's very awkward to watch someone eat while twiddling my thumbs. The kitchen area looks very poorly lit, maybe this contributed to being unable to understand a meats cooking level. Moving on to dessert, I will NOT order the Chocolate Molten Cake again, I recommend the same for anyone reading this. If a typical molten/lava cake is microwaved from frozen for about 3 - 4 minutes, this had seen well over 10. It was very solid, a little difficult to pierce with the spoon, and cold. From start to finish, the entire 'experience' took about an hour and a half, for a restaurant that was dead. Our server had a fun personality, but with the speed of service and quality, we will not be back. After reading some of the reviews on here, it's clear that this is becoming a trend for M & S.
