Great Ambiance, Great Service-- Best Calamari Ever plus yummy dipping sauces!, Parking is NOT free. – We made a reservation.It is our first time here and we were treated very special because they recognized and acknowledged our party as soon as we walked in the door. Seated promptly and comfortably. Our menu had the birthday celebrant's name and I thought it was a nice touch.We started with the calamari and it was the softest and scrumptious appetizer, plus the dipping sauces were delicious. I don't know if the bread is given as you walked in because we only got one when one of us ordered the soup. It is a kids' friendly place and the serving is huge. We tried the linguine, fish, shrimp for the kids and they were delectable. The free cinnamon ice cream was yummy! Always try the specials, It was the grouper and it was superb! Perfect balance. The blackened catfish is fresh with sweet potato was a great mixture with sweetness plus saltiness/spice of the sausage. Our server Chris is very professional, not pretentious and he explained every detail of our order. The place gets busy so you will notice a slight wait but not too long. It's a new place so I hope their service won't dwindle. Parking is valet for $5 plus tip of course but you can self park for the same price so I'd go for valet. I would go back again, kids menu vary from 4.95 to 7.95, adult is from 16.00 to 29.95+.
Comedy of errors! – Four of us went to McCormick andd Scmeck's expecting impectalbe service and food. Kind of a shock. After we were seated, we were encourage by the waiter to buy a particular bottle of wine, a few minutes later he returns to say they were out of that wine... Shouldn't he have checked ahead of time?
Three of us ordered clam chowed and the fourth ordered a differrent soup, 4 chowders were deleiverd to the table.
We had to ask for bread, which came as a half of a bordello roll, with 3 slices and a heel on a plate.
Our salads came, we asked for more bread and could water be place on the table.
That hadn't arrived but the waiter did top the condiments on the talbe with the desserts list. a few minutes later, it started on fire! We had no water to put it out but luckily one of us was a fireman. He use the empty bread plates to smother the fire. The ONLY comment for the waiter was, "Oh, my fault."
Dinner was served and was adequate, tastey, all though the portions were small, (4 scallops?) They did bring the water during the main course.
While clearing off the last dinner plate, they finally brought the bread and yes, it was the same little amount.
We heard from another patron the the Zaggot's Guide was there. We were wondering if he saw what was going on at our table? By this time we were laughing. Maybe that's were all the help was, catering to the Zaggot people? We went never offer any kind of comp for the fire or the calamity of errors.
If you go, remember to eat first and bring your own firefighter!
excellent service – atmosphere is great - service is excellent
prices are very good
portions are average
only negative - was sharing a caesar salad and got only 1 plate and only about 3 pieces of bread
biggest negative is 5.00 charge for valet - just let me tip not charge
rosewood and gibsons in rosemont have valet at no charge just tips
Rosemont seafooder banks on a reputation for fresh catches in a clubby, handsome setting. – In Short
The Washington-based seafood chain reels in suburbanites and business travelers with a location convenient to O'Hare and Woodfield Mall. The seasonally changing menu sports more than 30 varieties, which could be featured on the daily "fresh list." Appetizers stick to standards like fried calamari with a trio of dipping sauces and steamed mussels with garlic, tomatoes and basil. Guests can request to have their entrees baked, grilled, fried, boiled or left raw. The 8,000-square-foot dining room subscribes to the classic supper club/steakhouse vibe with linen-topped tables, rich woods and a private space for parties.
