When you travel for business as much as I do finding great customer service gets tougher everyday. You develop a higher standard than the average customer. Having said that the staff at the DC MaCormick & Smick's have what I call the "Golden Touch" my special thanks to the bar staff Jeneva and Lindsey. On a busy night full of... More

I usually book using Open Table but knowing how crazy the traffic can be in DC I choose to take a chance on getting a table. The hostess was very accommodating and friendly with no reservations and the restaurant was pretty busy. It took a little longer then expected for someone to come over to greet us after we were...

We came in about 8:00pm to order dinner. We had fish and chips and a deep fried shrimp dinner...all were served promptly and was very good. Staff was nice and accommodating.

I've been coming here infrequently for years. Happy hour bar service the past couple of years has been subpar. A recent trip was simply the worst - food didn't come, drinks didn't come, etc. My party paid for what we'd received and moved on to a bar that wasn't understaffed.

We came in to enjoy the happy hour and it was great! The special that night was shrimp and oysters on the half shell. Great flavors and Awesome Service! It was very crowded but the waitress did a great job flipping between us at the tables and the folks at the bar.

Went to the K street restaurant this weekend. Made a reservation because the city was swamped. Was seated and got one excuse after the other for why it was terrible. 45 minutes for a Coke, a waiter who refused to write anything down and kept forgetting orders. We left after an hour without entree orders being taken. I get that... More

Decided to have lunch here, and it was definitely a good decision. I ended up getting their ultimate mixed grilled, which was very delicious. Our table also got lobster bites to share - very good.

This is a very nice restaurant. The crab cakes and salad were delicious. They offer a very extensive wine list. This was perfect for our anniversary.

Visited Friday night at 9pm, place less than half full. No hostess for 2-3 minutes. Finally: "Have a reservation?" Give me a break. Got seated and the long wait began. Too many tables clustered for one waitress. Margarita had half-salted rim. Second one, no salt. Long wait for requested bread refill and parm cheese. On the plus side food was... More

We had a co-worker's retirement luncheon at this location. Although the lunch menu was set (we had choices of chicken, steak & salmon) the choices were very tasty. And the wait staff was very attentive. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere about it. A nice place to hold this type of event or just come for lunch. We really enjoyed... More
