This is a convenient location for a traveler at Embassy Suites - John Wayne Airport. No wait on a Wednesday evening and prompt service. I had a Ribeye Steak with a Shrimp Kiss appetizer. Both were delicious. The mashed potatoes lacked much flavor. The meal is a little expensive but a good overall experience.

It was a long day as I had just flown in from Singapore earlier in the day, but despite the jetlag, I had an appetite for a nice dinner on my first day in Irvine. For all my trips to US I have generally been pleased with the restaurant experience, but this particular dinner at M&S, did not meet minimum... More

Just arrived in Irvine CA after flying in from Kansas. Our appetite was 2 hours ahead. We had our choice of lunch or dinner menu and friendly service. The food was excellent and the Christmas decor was beautiful.

M&S has always been a good restaurant for business and evenings out. This one is better than most that I have dined at across the country. I would recomend thier seafood as it was very fresh. The staff was attentive and very pleasent and that goes from the host stand , waiters and even the bus staff. I had a... More

I travel a lot in exotic places and love all types of food. I always look for local places. But I had limited time, didn't want to get out in a taxi. Just wanted basic good food ("American" style simple steak, seafood, not exotic) I could count on for a biz dinner, not loud, and a little upscale. M&S is... More

This visit we went with seafood dishes, Signature Sea Bass and Salmon. The meal was served on a bed of vegetables. Paired with J Lohr 7 Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon. We didn't have appetizers or dessert but the dinner was most excellent. We had dinner reservations but they were not available for 90 minutes, so we showed up and were seated... More

When I am think of fresh fish at a local restaurant in Irvine, nice middle-class ambience, upscale casual, then often I choose McCormick's. The wooden booths are private but not so comfortable. The bread is tasty and the fish dishes are quite good. The wine list is long enough. Service is above average. All in all, you can't go wrong... More

We were here on a week night, so it wasn't real crowded. Yes, the Bouillabaisse was loaded with large shrimp, mussels, clams, fish and more - none was overcooked and the sauce was light and not overpowering. The portion is very laarge. So, why the mediocre review? The kale salad was a dismal failure - a few pieces of kale... More

Great menu for both lunch and dinner with fast service for lunch; dinner is a bit more relaxed. Great specials and a very good wine list.
