My boyfriend and I had a very relaxed and enjoyable date night here. Since they knew we were on a date through the OpenTable app, they gave us a more secluded table which was nice. The food was delicious and not overpriced at all!

It was our first time eating at this location in Atlanta. They food is consistently great as we have eaten at the Kansas City location. We were in one of the private room
Areas and it was great for a private Birthday dinner.

We had a great server all three times we visited in one weekend! Joined for Mother’s Day too. Food was delicious, sweet servers, great beverages! No complaints! (Much better than Ruth’s Chris across the street who couldn’t be ruder to us.)

This is a place where you come in with high expectations. We were not disappointed. Curiously, the slowest thing about the evening was that the hostess was not at her station. It wasn't a real long time, but there's usually someone there waiting to check people in. We had reservations for 6:45, got there early, no problem getting seated. Our section was fairly empty. Server was delightful. Everything came at the right time. Food was delicious. No rush to leave, and we enjoyed the entire evening there.

Overall a decent meal. Nothing spectacular and nothing bad. The sourdough loaf smelled amazing and was a good bread start. I would have liked more horseradish (or better horseradish) in the cocktail sauce for the shrimp cocktail as it was almost undetectable.

All of the entrees came very quickly and were served hot and fresh. Very very consistent and would definitely recommend the sea bass with herb broth and the blackened mahi with andouille potatoes.

If you want a good, consistent, quick meal, this is it. If you want something special and unique, this isn't your place.

I took my wife here for a birthday dinner just before a comedy concert. The staff was great and very knowledgeable about the menu. Wife had the stuffed salmon and I went with the ribeye. We were absolutely pleased. I also tried the Toasted and Smoked drink that was made tableside. Great experience.

The waiter Cj wasn’t a people person at all, or maybe he was just having a bad day which isn’t an excuse at all. He showed extreme poor customer service. The lobster tails were excellent but the steak was ok.

My food was disappointing as many times as I’ve been to this restaurant I’ve never been disappointed by the food until this visit. The shrimp was overcooked, the top of the creme brûlée was burnt not golden as it should be. I couldn’t get the server to refill my water. It was very disappointing.

I remember when McCormick and Schmick's was an excellent seafood restaurant. Under Landry's "leadership," it has transformed itself into an incredibly average, middle-of-the-road shadow of its former self. We won't be returning.

A great restaurant I do not get to enjoy very much. Our table was ready when my party of seven arrived. We had a wonderful waitress. The food was outstanding. It was early on a weekday evening and the restaurant was quiet. Everything about the experience was enjoyable.

The food was good although my memory and past experience has been higher than this rating; the service was o.k. but took too long for food and frequent follow-ups were non-existent. The Staff was very nice and helpful to each other, too. Just wish my husband's first time experience and my return was better.

Disappointing. Discovered that they validated parking in a certain lot only AFTER I paid $20 in another lot - they had no signage directing you where to go. Once we were seated, we found the noise level high even though the place was nearly empty.
I had the filet and stuffed shrimp - while the shrimp was good, it wasn’t anything phenomenal. While the filet was the proper temperature, it was dry as a bone. When I go to a steak house, I expect them to make a steak that’s better than what I can make at home.
We won’t be going back.

We found it odd that they have a policy to not seat you until the actual reservation time. We arrived about 10 minutes early and there were at least 12-15 tables open. Interestingly the unapologetic and partially rude hostess still waited until a few minutes beyond our actual time to seat us. Food was above average but in all my years of going out to eat, I have never experienced such a policy.

The service was good. The rule that you must be seated for Happy Hour deals is poor. We arrived early and wanted a drink but all bar seats were filled. We simply spent less because we were irritated. The tuna appetizer was too spicy to be enjoyed. The description should be clear. The Brussels sprouts side had 2 Brussels and a mound of potatoes. Unacceptable. Brussels sprouts with potatoes should have a higher ratio of Brussels sprouts to potatoes.

I heard nothing but good things about this place but didn't have the positive experience that I was assured of. My food was cold.. my dates food was swapped with the table next to us and she was lied to about what kind of steak she had received. The waiter also tried to tell her what to order as if she didn't know what she wanted.. it was just a bad experience all around.. even the two tables next to ours had multiple issues. Maybe it was just a bad night for that particular section.

They shouldn’t seat reservations in the bar at night because we literally had to yell at each other to hear and still couldn’t hear very well. Everything is great and great if you don’t have to sit in the bar...with a reservation.

The restaurant is pleasing to the eye, however, the food was not of the quality one would think for a restaurant of this caliber. My lobster tails were over cooked and my husband's vegetables were hard and cold. The waitress did bring new vegetables for him, but it took awhile. The waitress was fine, but very busy. Our drinks did not get refilled at all until the end of the meal. for the price, I would skip this one again.
