Yum. My favorite. And the cocktails during Happy Hour are a good value. I enjoyed breakfasts and dinners here this trip and all were very good. Staff was also exemplary.

Normally, I love McCormick and Schmick's lobster bisque. It is my favorite. However, the night we were there, it tasted so gross. The liquid part was great (like normal) but the actual pieces of lobster-yuck!! It tasted like it had been freezer-burned. I have never had lobster taste like that before. I only order lobster dishes from nice restaurants, so... More

For a chain restaurant, this place has decently fresh fish. This location in the Omni Hotel is very convenient for a quiet drink to get away from the chaos of the Gaslamp Quarter.

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

Took former and current trainees to dinner while attending a major neuroscience conference. Reservation for 10 was made easily through open table. Our waiter Kyle was excellent as he attended to all of us without missing a beat. The food was delicious regardless of what was ordered. Not the cheapest place as the total bill came to $470 not including... More

The bad news: We did not have a chance to have dinner here. The GREAT news: We have never had a better experience at a bar at 9 am in the morning!!! We had planned to watch the football game at a sports bar, but when that did not work out, we turned to the bar in our very nice... More

Honestly, this was THE BEST TUNA MELT I've had...EVER!! You can tell the fish was so fresh and the toasted bread made everything so great! I ordered fries with mine and they were excellent too; I mean who messes up fries? LOL I went during lunch on a week day and it was NOT crowded. A few casual meetings, but... 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.
