I received $20 gift certificates as a courtesy a few years ago. Have used 2 in the past and dropped in to use my last one. I mentioned this to the server when he took my order and he said he'd get at the end. Once my meal is finished it turns out that somehow my certificate is no longer... More

The server was incredibly nice and explained everything in detail - he had a great personality too. The food is delicious - I had a filet mignon, asparagus and bread. We also had bacon wrapped asparagus - Loved it - highly recommend going here!

I was in San Diego for a conference, and ran into a classmate from business school. We decided to eat at M&S since he doesn't eat meat. He had fish, which he really liked. I had a steak and it was cooked to perfection. Our server was friendly and attentive.
