Service was horrible. Bad to mining for the food that was bland. The drinks were full of ice with no liquor, bland food and long wait times. The manager was less than accommodating and very nonchalant.

The food was pretty good but I don’t know if it justifies the price (almost 150$ including the tip). We ordered the herb chicken and the salmon and it was okay. It is very nice and the service deserved 5 stars. I don’t think I will come back given that the food wasn’t really worth the price.

The service was great and the seafood was tasty. Our rib eye was very tough and seriously overly charred so it was practically inedible.

Wonderful birthday dinner. Three in the party had seafood and my wife had the filet. All of dinners were spectacular. We had the silk pie for dessert and it was the best ever. They did forget the mention of the Birthday as stated on the reservations.

The atmosphere was fantastic, the hostess was rude, but to be expected in a restaurant in the city. I'm not one to complain, so to leave it simply... my $50 dollar steak was inconsistently cooked, my mules had more raspberry than alcohol (for $36.00) I would expect a buzz off of three back to back. My wifes Filet was crunchy on the left side, and squishy on the right... I just feel like for a $200 bill w tip, it should have been better.

Very nice place. They allowed us to order an item on the bar menu (Chowder Fries) to eat at the main table which they don't normally do but because it was just my husband and I having an early dinner, they allowed it, I think by mistake though.

Our server was inattentive and service was slow for food. The lemon drop martinis basically taste like really sweet lemonade with too much sugar.

The COVID-19 menu is very selective and small. The food was very bland and less than small portions for the prices. The drinks from the bar were poorly made. The manager was very responsive and attentive to our dislikes he attempted to correct them, but I wouldn’t recommend going to spend your money here.

Overpriced! Service was great! Food was good except my filet was overcooked. I asked for medium well with some pink. It was well done with no pink. I did not send it back. The drinks were excellent! The restaurant atmosphere seemed old and outdated. Overall, I expected more from a center city Seafood/Steak Restaurant.
I probably would not go back.

Took 20 min for someone to come take our order. Because I was waiting so long I went to the bar to order drinks to which point the bartender had the manager come take our order. The drinks horrible! I ordered a Moscow mule, raspberry mojito, and a perfect margarita! Both my mule and mojito had to much sour mix! The drinks were extra sour! My margarita had salt mixed in the drink and not just on the rim! The margarita was a contender to give me high blood pressure! At the end of the night our check was wrong and I had the waiter fix the check. The experience was sub par from other times that I visited!

I was looking forward to going here for the first time ever.
The place was like a morgue.
The menu was so dummy downed ands sparse that there was almost nothing from the real menu was available.
I ordered a Dirty Martini there were things floating around in it that I couldn’t identify and there were no olives.
I looked at my wife , asked here to finish here drink as fast as she could, paid for the drinks and left as quickly as possible.
I was completely disappointed.
Save your money.

Our reservation for four was for 5PM on a Sunday evening and given that we are still dealing with COVID, we encountered very few people in the restaurant. Around 6PM there were more people that were seated but distancing between tables was not a problem.

I ordered the Sunday 3-Course dinner special which included a delicious house salad with crumbled blue cheese, almonds, and ranch dressing; a crab stuffed flounder entree with mashed potatoes and green beans; and for dessert the cheesecake with strawberry drizzle.

Our food delivery was spaced out longer than we liked and the appetizer of oysters for one of my dinner companions came out much later than our salads. Even though the oysters included pieces of the shell, the individual who ordered them enjoyed the oysters.

My husband and I came here for our 10 year anniversary. We hadn’t eaten in a restaurant since COVID, so we were a little apprehensive, but we really didn’t need to be. All of the staff wore masks and face shields, and we were spaced far apart from other diners. Our waitress was really nice and very attentive. The food was incredible. I got the sea scallops and my husband got the rib eye, and both entrees were delicious and cooked perfectly. We also really enjoyed our cocktails and the chocolate silk pie for dessert was amazing. I absolutely recommend McCormick & Schmick’s for a nice evening out.

This was the second time dining at M$S within 2 weeks and each time was very cold. Both days were very warm end of summer/fall weather. Wear a jacket if you are dining in.

It was okay, I felt like the food quality was a lil low due to it being restaurant week BUT I would think that would be the best time to make a great impression. It doesn’t make me want to go back to spend real money 😩✌🏾

Dined on Friday 09/25, during restaurant week. Took a few minutes for someone to greet our party as there was no one standing at the hostess desk. We were seated promptly to a booth upstairs which was very nice. We were given the option of the full menu as well as the restaurant week special menu. Our waiter was courteous and friendly just not very attentive. The restaurant week menu was fairly priced with a mix of options. One of our guests ordered a filet from the full menu. The filet was dry and over cooked. The waiter was informed and gave us the option to send it back. We declined because we were hungry and didn’t want to hold everyone up. A more acceptable gesture would have been to comp the filet or at minimum a discount off the check. The other meals were ok, nothing to rave about. One of our guests added a lobster tail to their meal but was given shrimp. The waiter never returned so we could let him know. The location of our table was the best part of this dining experience. We will never return.

Service was good but our entree’s were bland. Definitely expected more. Could be because we were one of the last reservations and maybe the cooks were ready to go but still no excuse.

I visited this restaurant pre-Covid and the food was not too bad. This time around I felt like I was eating cafeteria food. The brussels sprouts were undercooked and the meat was burnt. The mashed potatoes tasted like box mashed potatoes and the spinach was not edible. I did not have an overall good experience here.

Visited during the restaurant week and overall experience was just average. We had salmon and crab cake for an entrée. Service was nothing extraordinary. Salmon dish was just ok for known seafood restaurant. Crab cake was excellent, lump of crabs and not too much fillings. If i go back it would be for the crab cake.
