Perfect with the exception of the flounder being a little bland. My friends steak was perfect. The server was incredible and the wine was great. Going back for the NY Strip soon!

The food was great but the service could have been better. I had to wait 15 minutes after I arrived (I arrived 5 minutes before my reservation time) to be seated. My waiter was just okay, didn’t really return to the table much and hovered over us while we were deciding what to order. Also, did not offer any bread or anything while we waited.... good food with basic service.

Second time here and it was a bit of a disapointment from my first time there. It might have been just a busy night. The apps were good, our entres took longer than usual. We ordered a medium salmon panseared with aspagus and the Crabbed stuff Salmon. Our veggies were overcooked and my salmon was well done. It wasn't dry so I didn't fuss. The chocolate pie was desbribed as a mouse but had a thicker consistency. Again maybe it was just a busy night.

We enjoyed the Valentine's Day 3 course dinner. The service was great and even though it was a cold and freezing rainy day, the atmosphere was wonderful. Our server was friendly and enthusiastic and our meal was delicious.

No hostess to seat us , staff not attentive , we were seated at the bar when we asked for restaurant week not good when you have kids with you.
FYI when I made the reservation your website did not say that we have to be seated at the bar for restaurant week.
Most likely I will never visit your location again , the food was good maybe I will try a different location.

Had a reservation for the Restaurant Week menu. After arriving, we were told that the Restaurant Week menu diners were to be seated in the bar area. We would have had no problem, but we were less than 6 feet from other diners and the bar was obviously full and exceeding the Virginia rules for socially distanced dining. The experience made us uncomfortable so we left. Ordinarily I love it, but I don’t think I will go back for dining inside until we’ve cleared the pandemic.

I called the location several times to discuss the protocol for birthdays and bringing in cakes and no one every answered the phone. I arrived at the facility and was informed that it would be $25 dollars to have the cut my cake and I was upset because no one ever answered the phone to inform me of that. The food ordered was incorrect for several orders. The crab cakes were amazing though. That was the best part.

Incredible experience.

Service: very friendly and helpful. The host was great and friendly. The waiter was attentive, efficient, and provided great recommendations.
Food: one of the best steaks I've had in any restaurant. I had the bone in black Angus rib eye. It was cooked to my request (medium) and was very tasty and juicy.
Drinks: me and my wife loved our drinks, I had the old fashioned while she had the raspberry mule.
Value: a little on the high end but definitely worth the price.

I highly recommend dining here, I will definitely return at this restaurant if ever in the area again.

I was on a date when three women sitting across from me was loud and extremely disrespectful the entire evening. They were able to stay their entire meal, completely making us uncomfortable due to the virus going on and their lack of masks. We didn’t complain there though but to pay what we paid then have that experience will not be forgotten.

The evening started off bumpy. We had reservations but upon arrival, there seemed to be a debate about where to seat us. After seating, we spent close to 15 minutes with no one attending to us - no water, attention, etc. Finally, we asked for attention from the hostess who took our order but then no one brought it out to us. When we finally got a regular wait person, she was very nice and attentive and the dinner went well. Yet, it was all tainted by a very bad arrival experience. As the saying goes, "You don't get a second chance to make a first impression." Given the food was very good, I would cautiously recommend M&S.

Steak was amazing!

Service could have been a bit better, like offering to pour wine & we had to ask to have dirty plates removed.

Overall great meal and we will be back soon! Love the steak!!!

We were the only table in the whole restaurant. Food was below a sports bar. McCormick and Schmidt supposed to be a higher end restaurant. The steaks were overcooked. The server only stopped by the table once. Highly would not recommend this restaurant.
