  • Just say no to the Thanksgiving Turkey Meal
    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 11/27/2014
    We decided to order the Thanksgiving special. It wasn't even worth the $28. I think they pre-make the plates hours? in advance. The plate of food looked like it was kept warm or warmed up right before they serve it to you. The top piece of turkey breast on my plate was brown and dried out. My husband had a lump in his mashed potatoes the size of a golf ball. They put a tiny bit of gravy on the turkey, had to ask for more gravy twice, just to be able to get though eating the dry bland meal. Our waitress was nice but we didn't see her much after we got our food. Took forever to have our plates cleared. Didn't bother having the $5 piece of pumpkin pie. We have oyster's before our meal, they were good. But not worth ever returning to this restaurant.

    We had a group of 14 people, everyone loved their food, service was great, noise level was moderate that we were able to hear each other. We loved the ambiance, the decor and the location that we could just walk from car in underground garage to the restaurant - it was very cold so not having to walk outside to go from parking to restaurant was great!

    My husband and I are both USAF Veterans. We love dining at M&S, but especially on Veterans Day, when this food chain provides a free meal to Vets. I had a delicious cedar-planked salmon with roasted potatoes & steamed broccoli. My husband had the beef medallions, mashed potatoes & broccoli - all complimentary! We handed to this a cold vodka martini, chopped salad (delicious!) and a glass of wine. (select bottles 50% off to Vets). The restaurant was filled with Vets from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and those who served in times of peace. I love to go around the restaurant, shaking hands with these men & women, thanking them for their service. It's a heartwarming experience being in the presence of so many heroes and she-roes. Excellent!

    We have been to this restaurant many times and this is our second year for their free dinner for Veteran's which is a special menu. They had several chicken and fish choices + a Beef choice. My wife had beef tips and I had Fish and Chips. Both were very good and a good portion too. The check-in people and wait staff were great and made a point of thanking Veteran's for their service in a very genuine manner. The place is usually quite busy and I would recommend reservations and very definitely if you go to the Veteran's dinner.

    Went there on their Veteran's Day special (3rd year). They treated me and my wife with respect and kindness as if we were the only two people that mattered. Excellent staff, food choices and great wine list. Our table looked out at the main street through Bellevue with Bellevue Square across from us. The location is excellent as you can cross the sky bridge just one flight up and over to Bellevue Square for Christmas Shopping. Wonderful experience.

    McCormick's once again put on a wonderful meal for vets. It was great to see a gathering of vets and loved ones of all ages. The staff was very courteous and appreciative of everyone. The food was delicious; my wife tried tilapia for the first time. We'll be back the next time we're at the mall.

    My wife and I went to the M&S in Bellevue so I could grab the free veteran dinner. We had not visited an M&S before, but knowing it is a chain gave us no particular hope. We were pleasantly surprised at every turn. First, the margaritas. My wife rated it 8.5 on her scale, and it has been years since she gave out better than a 7. Our waiter assured us that everything mixed was mixed on-site. The service was prompt, efficient, and attentive without giving you the feeling you were being hovered over. The staff all seemed to like working there. The food also exceeded expectations. It haven't had fish & chips this good since we lived in Australia. I wish I could buy that tartar sauce in stores.

    I usually love coming to this restaurant. I came for my b-day (11-9)-lunch time. They were apparently shorthanded. The service was terrible. My order was mixed up and rec'd a meal I didn't order, but I decided not to make waves cause I wasn't certain WHEN I would get the correct dish. The Manager-Carrie-knew about the mix up and saved the day. She made the whole experience flip from bad to wonderful. I felt she really cares about her clients-she is the BEST. Of course, I will come back-but never on a busy day (the restaurant was also celebrating Veteran's Day) which I give them credit for-but they need to have more wait staff for the occasion.

    McCormick & Schmick's quietly offered a free lunch for Veteran's on a Sunday, which seems like it would be a rather busy afternoon time as this one is right across from a major shopping mall. But the staff were very pleasant, they didn't even blink that I had set the reservation up for only two originally (my husband & me), but changed the night before to add our son (who is also a Veteran). As we checked in the hostess asked if my husband was the Veteran and then said thank you, very sincerely, and when our son joined us a few minutes later she was again very pleasant. The waitress was very pleasant, and helpful when asked about a menu item. The last time we were here we didn't have the best experience, but this time remedied that 100%

Food and Service were excellent EXCEPT that our server seemed to be off "doing other things" rather than paying attention that we had finished our main course and were waiting quite some time for the desert and later for our check to arrive.

    This is the second time I return to this restaurant for restaurant week. My first experience had salad and sushi that is pre-made and pull out of the refrigerator. This time the menu says pan seared salmon but instead I receive some sort of small pieces of salmon in stew. If the restaurant do not have the item should be honest and tell customers to pick alternative and not just serve whatever they have in the kitchen.

    The service was excellent until my wife received her halibut. For $38, she shouldn't have received a tail cut. We requested a center cut and the Manager ( believe it was the manager) apologized and brought her new plate with a very nice cut, so she did very well to recover. Where service fell short was when we checked out, the waiter wouldn't pick up our bill and complete our transaction. We asked about whether we he required the cash card to credit the remaining balance. He informed us that he would need the card if we weren't going to use the entire cash balance. Instead of taking care of the check, he proceeded to clean the table next to us. After 7 minutes of waiting, we took the check up front to pay for our meal and left.

    My family got together for a pair of birthday celebrations on a Sunday night. The table was ready for us at the appointed time. Reservations were made on line and confirmed by the restaurant by phone. Our server, Sky, was excellent and attentive. The manager came over to make sure all was well. The food was excellent and prepared to individual tastes. My favorite meal at McCormick and Schmick is their Rainbow Trout Almondine. It was terrific once again. I highly recommend M&S both for seafood and nonseafood menu items. Free dessert for birthdays.
