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

Just arrived in Irvine CA after flying in from Kansas. Our appetite was 2 hours ahead. We had our choice of lunch or dinner menu and friendly service. The food was excellent and the Christmas decor was beautiful.

M&S has always been a good restaurant for business and evenings out. This one is better than most that I have dined at across the country. I would recomend thier seafood as it was very fresh. The staff was attentive and very pleasent and that goes from the host stand , waiters and even the bus staff. I had a... More

I travel a lot in exotic places and love all types of food. I always look for local places. But I had limited time, didn't want to get out in a taxi. Just wanted basic good food ("American" style simple steak, seafood, not exotic) I could count on for a biz dinner, not loud, and a little upscale. M&S is... More

This visit we went with seafood dishes, Signature Sea Bass and Salmon. The meal was served on a bed of vegetables. Paired with J Lohr 7 Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon. We didn't have appetizers or dessert but the dinner was most excellent. We had dinner reservations but they were not available for 90 minutes, so we showed up and were seated... More

When I am think of fresh fish at a local restaurant in Irvine, nice middle-class ambience, upscale casual, then often I choose McCormick's. The wooden booths are private but not so comfortable. The bread is tasty and the fish dishes are quite good. The wine list is long enough. Service is above average. All in all, you can't go wrong... More
