Everyone from our hostess, our server(Mati) to the excellent cook (Chef Harold) was absolutely amazing. Made our special night one we will never forget.

Service, food, ambiance. Absolutely perfect.

Outdoor seating was great. Service was great. Definitely recommend doing a reservation as restaurants are limited capacity during Covid

We were warmly greeted by the hostess, taken to a nice high top table on the patio, excellent social distancing! Our server, Tiffany, was warm, welcoming and very accommodating. I had a procedure earlier, needing to eat “smaller”, she was fine with us sharing a salad and entree. Had the plates separated in the kitchen. Even asked if I needed to replace veggies. Can’t say enough!

Two "old" friends looking to catch up - we needed someplace where we could socially distance outside to be safe. M&S provides that, near the water and good food. We had one server, and everyone was masked up and considerate.

We went to this location in downtown Baltimore, MD on 7/25/2020 and the general manager which is what she called herself was extremely judgmental and offensive. My sister and myself are both self employed business owners and I assume because my sister looked a bit lavish in her attire that the manager that was checking us in for our reservation asked my sister for her name then stated "oh where do you work" with a very nasty demeanor. My sister stated she doesn't work anywhere she's a stay at home mom very polite but condescending because she is now offended. We followed her to our seat where she informed us due to social distancing we can not sit together although we called the same day to make the reservations and was informed we would be seated at two tables close by one another but separate to follow social distancing guidelines. Which was fine to us however this manager stated "well I don't really care who you spoke with I'm the GM and you will not be able to mingle with one another". She continued to place our menus at separate tables very distant from one another completely inconsiderate to the fact that we were there for a birthday celebration and our party of 12 was expecting to sit close together. She was extremely nasty to my sister so I asked her what is her problem and she said " well your sister already rubbed me the wrong way at the door". I was too threw! I called Ouzo Bay whom has always shown very classy and great customer service. Since they fired the discriminating staff member I informed the group we could go there and the manager would accommodate the birthday group. We left McCormick & Schmick's Seafood and none of our party will ever go there again especially as long as that GM is still in charge. She is very incompetent of managing a place where customer service is everything to business success. RECOMMENDATION do not go there expecting nonjudgement or great service because the manager there is certainly not measurable to good standards.

The service was horrible. Had to wait 10 minutes for my server to come. I had to actually tell the hostess to get my waitress. Finally received water after waiting 20 minutes. My food finally came and had to wait another 5-10 minutes for steak sauce for our steak. I had to flag down the hostess again for the check. Someone else other then our waitress brought the check and then they never came back to pick get it. I had to pay cash and she did not deserve a tip, but we couldn't get anyone to bring us change. It was the worst service I ever had and the hostess (who said she was the manager) said she was going to call me the next day. She never did. I do not recommend this place due to horrible service.

Our waiter was not very attendant to us when we came and only visited our table a total of 5 times our entire time there. It took him 20 minutes to deliver our check. The crab cake sandwich was delicious but the grilled shrimp were very bland. The environment was good though.

My husband and I loved the food and the manager was great, she called me before my reservation because it was cloudy and asked if it rains do I mind sitting indoors instead of patio, we appreciated that call. However when we got there it was no rain and was sitting outside the waiter she put us with had tables directly in the sun , we asked for a shaded table which was a different waitress and oh boy!!! The service was so POOR I forget her name our drinks were delayed, like she forgot, our food took every bit of 45 min wait. People came in and sat after us and got waited on faster. She definetely needs more training. But big thanks to the kitchen because the food was delicious. If I ever return and see she's my waitress I will leave immediately. To find out who she was my name is Ms. Mccall I paid with a $85 gift card and cash on 7/5/20, my reservation was for 6:30 pm

Didn’t have much to choose from. When you think of McCormick your thinking flavorful and tasty. Food was bland and shrimp on top of my salmon was the size of a penny smh. Highly disappointed. Waiter was the only thing I liked about the restaurant .

Even amidst the changes M&S has made to comply with new protocols, they did not disappoint. Our server, Miller, was exceptional. He was very attentive and he had a great personality! I was unable to get scallops so he recommended other choices based on my seafood preferences. The Chilean Sea Bass was amazing! Everyone in my party of 3 loved their food. We loved our water view table, which was spaced far enough away from other tables for us to feel comfortable dining out during the pandemic. Overall we had a wo fearful experience.

I wish I understood that the menu had a limited selection. Also, it took so long after we placed our order, we had to ask the waitress for the bread once we saw she brought the bread out for a table that sat after us. The $30 meal should have been more like $20 and the fried shrimps were not deveined. I have never had to devein shrimp at a restaurant before and I have frequent this establishment to many times to count. Very disappointing and that service signaled to me to stay inside until after COVID is figured out.

Server was amazing!!! Food was nothing special not bad but no character or real flavor with an excessive amount of pepper on all the items. The hostess was cold and unfriendly. They did not answer the Phone when I called to check our reservation. Won’t be going back will try another upper scale restaurant in hopes of better food and friendly.

I’ve been dining with Stoney River for about the last three years. Over that time it’s become one of my favorite restaurants to go to whenever I’m in a close proximity to Towson. Delicious food and amazing service. My server Tiana was absolutely amazing.

Hostess was rude and dismissive. Seating policies were haphazard. We entered and were brusquely told to make a reservation, which we did—but upon return we were instructed to wait because they were “seating walk-ins.” If they were, in fact, allowing walk-ins, why were WE forced to schedule in advance—and still made to wait past our scheduled time?

They were not prepared to have as many people as they did for outdoor dining and only had one server who was doing her best but not attentive at all. Food was mediocre, best part was sitting outside

As a Marylander, I’ve had better flavored seafood. The vegetables were heavily salted and the roasted potatoes were very dry. My date stated that the fried oysters were pretty good and he enjoyed the pesto twist. Overall I would probably not return for the food but definitely the outdoor seating view.
