This is McCormick & Schmick's "grill" It's a little less formal. All the food is good, seafoods, salads, steaks, and more. One of my favorite places to celebrate a special occasion.

M & S Grill has never disappointed in a myriad of visits for various occasions. Their service has consistently been attentive and the food has always been excellent. We visited this time for my husbands birthday as it is a favorite "go-to" hangout of his and we were greeted with smiles and delicious warm bread. The ambiance is pleasant, the... More

This restaurant was apparently conceived as a noisier and less formal little sister to McCormack& schmicks across the street, but you know what....their piped in blues music is full of good choices and darned good ...... if a tiny bit loud. You quickly get used to it though. It's a nicely appointed and almost comfortable atmosphere in a decent layout.... More

Live ,energizing ,jazz and popular piano trio accompanying an excellent lunch with very tasty cuisine, superb service ,and an attentive general manager and welcoming staff. Friendly and well cared for from the moment we entered. Good vibe throughout! Share a dessert - they are large and rich. Bravo.

First time to this location. Very good service. Since we were there at 4 PM, very quite. Thought about eating outside but they allow cigar smoking, which we could smell all the way up the block as we approached. Excellent lobster bisque, and very good fried shrimp plate with French fries and cole slaw. The waiter said the fries only... More

Came by for happy hour while on a business trip. Good food options if you're into fairly non-healthy bar food. We had calamari, chicken strips, shrimp, buffalo wings. All fine, nothing special but happy hour prices were great. 5 glasses of wine and 2 cocktails as well (some happy hour prices, some after). Total bill $94 before tax. Very friendly... More

Seafood and steaks are good... Nothing to complain about. Prices are a bit on the high side, geared towards business people entertaining customers on company expense. Nevertheless, been here on my own dime and keep finding this an OK place for a special dinner.

We used to like this restaurant, but the service and quality have really dropped. Both of our steaks were over cooked, my husbands was served well done, when it had been ordered medium. He ordered a NY Strip and we were surprised to see it was only 1/2 inch thick, like you would see at Ponderosa. Both of our steaks... More
