So I have been to McCormicks many times over the past 15-20 years now and the lobster bisque was my fave. Today it was salty and lacking lobster. My fathers salmon was raw in the inside. The waitress said they cook all their fish medium. I’ve never heard of that. There’s no valet, I will not be going there again. The food was not worth the price.

It was a horrible experience to the staff not knowing the had Pinot Noir to our meals coming out 20 mins between each- arrived at 4:45 and left around 7:45pm.
Manager on staff did a poor job to fix the situation!

The seating booth was very tight, we asked if we could be moved to a normal table, they accommodated us, so that was nice but the food was horrible. I’ll assume because it was restaurant week maybe they have food precooked and are only prepared to serve those item but i ordered from the regular menu. I ordered the herb chicken meal and my food came out burnt, it smelt and tasted like charcoal. I’m actually a person who never sends his food back out of fear of something happening to my food but this was a must to send back when my second plate came back it was better m. The waiter was very pleasant though and i understand the seat and food wasn’t on him.

The Salmon was good, the clam chowder came out burnt. The stuffed crab/shrimp in the Salmon not so appetizing.

Being notified of a dress code caught me off guard, but it wasn’t a problem. 😁 The service was excellent, and the food was quite tasty. The creme brûlée was maybe a teensy bit “sticky” but that could just be my sensitive teeth. It didn’t stop me from finishing it! Overall, my friends and I enjoyed our visit and would definitely visit again. Thank you!

We went for restaurant week and the food was very good. However they were out of one of the two desserts that were being offered, out of complimentary bread, and drinks took over 20 minutes to get. Our server was very unprofessional and interjected a lot. She also did not remove our plates when we finished. When the next course came in, it caused a lot of mess on our table. She also never refilled our waters. The food was outstanding however and we still enjoyed our time. It just was not the best service I have received at a restaurant, and I definitely did not expect that lack of professionalism from a nicer restaurant like M&C

Restaurant week menu was very limited for those who do not eat fish or chicken. Our poor waitress was so stressed that we never got second drinks and our dessert.

The server was not knowledgeable with the menu or the food..
The lights dimed to such a low level that seeing what you were eating was next to impossible.
The taste of the food was mediocre!
The pricing high, for the quality received!
A return visit was disappointing .

Our visit yesterday was horrible. Of all the restaurants to choose from, we chose McCormick’s. I called to let them know I was looking for parking and was wondering if we could sit upstairs. (I remember it being cute and intimate up there when I attended a family dinner, thought it would be cute for date night)…If we couldn’t, no biggie. Whoever I was talking to was very condescending, and then says to me, oh and let me tell you that’s it’s business casual attire only. Not sure what would make her say that to me, but I have an idea….and after all of that the food, drinks and service were mediocre. I’ll take my money elsewhere next time. Never again.

Loved this place for restaurant week! We ate on the first floor-definitely should have tried to get on the second. At first thought it was a camera but realized halfway through dinner that the flashing was from a red light camera on the road. Food was absolutely amazing-drinks potent enough that you only need 1! We had a loud group of children near us so it wasn't exactly peaceful so ambiance definitely depends on where you are sitting due to the nature of the restauarant

The service we experienced could use some improvement. We were seated in the 2nd floor dining room at a 9:15PM reservation. Our server made us feel rushed and was more preoccupied with doing side work near the bar area and chatting with co workers than making sure we were OK. It was difficult to get her attention to even get a second drink order. It was obvious she was at the end of her shift and wanted to go. She dropped the check and I believe we were out of there by 10:30 only to go downstairs and see all the happy customers seated in the main dining room, obviously not rushed to leave where they were seated. Will not be coming back. When you finally get out of the house and have a meal indoors you really want to relax a bit....not feel like you are not really welcome in the first place.

Unbeknownst to me, I had made reservations on the 1st day of Philadelphia's Restaurant week.

We selected from the restaurant week offerings. The fish ( cod & cobia ) were perfectly cooked as we're the vegetables. Desserts ( creme bruise & peanut butter pie with otro crust) were wonderful as well.

The only disappointment was clam chowder which was New England style.
It had an unusual heavy smoky taste, May be from the bacon?

We were seated in a separate dining room on 3nd level. Nice& quiet. Noise level too high in many restaurants

The food wasn’t good and this was my second time there. Maybe because it was restaurant week, but the chicken was burned to the point where it was stiff. The waiter was nice but the bartender making the drinks had an attitude.

I heard the steak here was delicious, but that’s an understatement. The filet mignon was to die for; I just wish there were more of these restaurants closer to my home.
But I have absolutely no problem whatsoever driving over an hour just to eat at this place. Absolutely delicious!
