    Superb food, service, and outstanding experience. We drove up from Fort Bragg for a family fine dining experience and we total loved it. Steaks were the best ever, service was perfect, and we loved the total expereince. The food was worth the price, and worth the drive!

    We've dined at McCormick & Schmick's on numerous occasions. The service is always great but our server tonight was no different. One of us ordered the scallop dinner, the other a shrimp trio. My scallop dish was very good. The shrimp trio was good but the butternut squash "risotto" was not really a risotto. The number of shrimp on the plate was very generous. The dessert was most disappointing. We ordered the red velvet cake. The cake was dry and the ice was stiff and not creamy. It didn't taste "old" but it obviously wasn't fresh. M&S: If desserts hang around too long, try reducing the number that your offer so they turn more often.

    McCormick & Schmicks always lives up to my expectations, if not continually exceeding them every time I go there. I made reservations the day before, requested a privacy booth, & received prompt (& perfect) seating & amazing service! The drinks were great & the food was positively heavenly. Everything was fresh & timely. The atmosphere was romantic, calm, & everything I could have asked for. I will certainly be dining there again very soon. I could not have asked for a better experience.

    Second time in 3 weeks I had lunch here. Both times it was empty, service was terrible and food was mediocre at best. This place has gone down hill fast. Waiter was not attentive and obviously didn't care about providing service. They have lost me as a customer.

    Haven't been here in a while, glad we went back. Usually save for a special occasion. I had my usual salmon stuffed with brie, very good, but my husband had one of the chef's specials, the seared tuna with wasabi cream sauce and edamame risotto - outstanding! If it comes around again, would highly recommend.

    My wife and I went to McCormick & Schmick's a few days ago. I ordered the steak medallions in a red wine sauce and my wife ordered a salmon pasta. Both meals tasted excellent. The steak was some of the best steak I've ever had and I even enjoyed the pasta (not a fan of seafood in general). My only problem was the serving size. This might be my fault for ordering the medallions, but I finished my meal and still felt very hungry. I do understand that I was paying for the quality of the steak (and, once again, it was *very* good) versus quantity, but paying $20-some for a dinner and leaving hungry was pretty disappointing. Everything else was really great, so maybe stay away from the steak medallions if you're a big eater.

    We dined at McCormick & Schmick's for my grandmother's birthday. The food was very good, as usual (I recommend the crab dip). The only criticism I have is that our server was very bland, no warmth or personality in our service. He wasn't slow or incompetent, just not personable like servers normally are.

    I had the Mahi-mahi and my husband had the swordfish. The fish was very good and fresh. It came with seasonal string beans which were very good; and mashed potatoes which were very bland. We opted to not get a side salad since it's summer and we've been eating a lot of salads from our garden and seemed like just an extra cost. It just wasn't enough food for me or my husband and since the price of the meals is on the high side I don't expect to leave hungry. I would probably try somewhere else first for the price. Our server was excellent. Offered suggestions and explanations if needed and was all-around friendly.

    This was our 10th wedding anniversary dinner. We had reservations and were given a nice quiet booth. The server made a few recommendations from the menu, but she also told us that several items were not great, especially for the cost. What?? Shouldn't she be giving glowing reviews of the menu? The Positives: The Shrimp Kisses appetizer were good. My husband had the glazed salmon and I had the Miso Scallops. Both were great. The portions were good. We had the espresso chocolate cake for dessert, which was rich and fantastic. Big enough to share. The Negatives: The server was very chatty and made several comments that were too personal for our liking. The server also lacked knowledge of the drink menu. The price was fair for the experience.

    The food is fairly good, though no longer the "better" meal it use to be before being bought out. Service was overly chatty and our waitress literally ignored the host and hostess and hovered over some guests she chatted and giggled with most of the meal. Dinner was a birthday dinner for the hostess and waitress instead catered to one of the guests and even presented the guest with the birthday dessert and hung out at that end of the table. Tacky. The steaks were well spoken of [large filet mignons], while the fish dishes were considered to be only okay; a shrimp dish was bland [couldn't find the herbs] and almost room temperature. All in all a bit pricy for a mediocre meal.

    Came here for our first date and the restaurant was everything we expected and more. From the personalized header on the menu to the private dining both, the restaurant made our dining experience a night to remember. The waitress brought the wine, appetizers and maintain course and desert we're brought out at the right intervals. One side note about the attention to detail of the staff and management, our steak was order medium well and was delivered to the table raw. Once we brought thus to the waitress attention she went into action immediately. Not only was it corrected in a timely fashion, but the manager had delivered the steak himself with the deepest if apologies. A wonderful and memorable dinning experience second to none.
