  • "Service was outstanding (thanks, George!), food was excellent and nicely priced. Great overall experience and we will definitely be back!"

  • "Having the daily special is always a risk. This time it was 50% or so. The small fillet was good and properly cooked. The small lobster tail was discolored (possibly from meat juices) even though the taste was not off. waiter paid much to much attention to the "regular" customer."
    Dined on 8/25/2014
  • "I thought that the waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu. My friend has Gluten allergies and we were pleased that there was a Gluten-Free menu available for her to choose from"

  • "Been to several McCormick & Schmick's but first time at this location. Had a very nice atmosphere, although a little dark. Service was very good both in the bar before dinner and in the dining room. Waitress in bar was helpful explaining happy hour deals and very friendly. Waiter was knowledgeable about the menu, answering several questions. The meal was ok but not great with one dish overly salty and another over cooked. Not to the point of sending them back but a little disappointing."
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "Food is great but expensive. There was a separate charge for the lobster tail and the filet. There should be a surf n turf plate offered."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Great Food and Service. The staff was very friendly and helpful with our group of 16, they allowed us to use a more private space, everyone in group said they liked the food and experience (the endless bottles of wine may have helped also)."

  • "Slow service for kids! While the fixtures were interesting, the fan and aquarium , more important is the service."

  • "Solid seafood downtown. Great service. Love the "restaurant week" lunch."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "The waiter was unbelievably aggressive with all selections from the flavored iced tea to extra salad. He pushed my girlfriend three separate times to try the iced tea after she said no the first time, and he consistently encouraged us to order more food eventhough we expressed no interest. Unforunately poor service (which was, admittedly, quite knowledgable), but the food tasted good. We will not return."

  • "Went here for our anniversary dinner. Everything was good from the service to the food. The menu was nothing special though & you certainly get the feel of a chain restaurant. Prices for the size cocktails & style of food were a bit pricey...We would rather spend the money on a local specialty place in the future."

  • "Our daughter recommended your restaurant to us. The food was excellent, the service was outstanding, and our dinner was a wonderful prelude to the symphony concert we attended. The wait staff was efficient and very personable, adding personal touches to our anniversary dinner. It was a wonderful evening in the city and a special treat since we don't live in Allegheny County and don't come into Pittsburgh often."

  • "The food didn't taste fresh and the service was just so-so. One of our meals tasted "fishy". The other was drowning in butter and salt. Salads were minimal. The wait staff kept apologizing for forgetting things which was nice but service was still bad."

    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "The service was exceptional. Wait staff was great. We had a problem with a glass of wine that was "off-tasting". The waiter gladly exchanged it for another varietal. No questions asked. We told the hostess that we'd like to get a cab when we finished dinner. She was always checking our booth to see when we might finish and had a cab waiting for us."

  • "I have been to most of the upper end chains (Capital Grille, Morton's, Ruth's Chris, etc) and in general, they all do a pretty good job. This was my first time at McCormick & Schmicks. The restaurant passed the first impressions test, but went nowhere from there. Our server was great but she could not overcome the very disappointing food. Nothing I ordered made me say "wow, this is great.". Even dessert, which has to be very hard to achieve mediocrity with, was a let down. I hope this was an isolated case at this particular location. I should have been suspect when we walked in on a busy Saturday night and found their dining room half empty."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "For an evening dinner before a show, we made reservations at McCormick's. The service was first rate, friendly, and helpful. The salad, the dinner (stuffed shrimp), and drinks were all great! We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "McCormick & Schimick's on Wood Street downtown is a great dining choice for those attending events in the Cultural District. Service is friendly and attentive without being intrusive and the atmosphere is casually warm and inviting. Typical of menu preparations at upscale chain restaurants, the food selections are somewhat predictable, but always prepared well. Daily features provide some of the better choices. Seafood is always fresh and excellently prepared. The wood-planed Salmon is especially good as is the Lobster Bisque."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Excellent food. Terrific service provided by Chris. Perfect evening."

  • "We had a fairly large party (13 people). The servers were very patient and accommodating. We had a relaxed and enjoyable evening. Thanks."

  • "Appetizer was very good (shrimp kisses). The miso scallops were Luke warm and somewhat disappointing. Service was good. Restaurant ambiance is very nice."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Our waiter kept the meal moving so we got to the O'Reilly with time to spare. Yet we didn't feel rushed. The 2 course meal left us satisfied and comfortable to sit through a show."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "The Plank Roasted Salmon was delicious. Even delicious the next day for leftovers. Would definitely get again. However, the Crab Cakes were just so so. Instead of nice lumps of crab, it had either been over mixed and all the crab became shredded or they are not using lump crab. Not enough seasoning either. Had it for leftovers the next day and added some Old Bay and that improved the flavor. The Fish and Chips, as always, were excellent."
