    Our table all ordered seafood. The scallops were to die for, the stuffed flounder was delicate (she was hoping for more stuffing), the blackened catfish was delicious, and the ultimate mixed grill was excellent, but very salty. We enjoyed our dinner and the ambiance very much.

    The Lobster Mashed Potatoes were delicious. They have a nice selection of cocktails to choose from that are unique to this restaurant (loved the sangria with cucumber and strawberries that I had). I highly recommend this for a special date night out (read - no kids).

    We booked a table because we wanted the patio, but it rained so we were seated inside. We thought the decor of the restaurant front room was dated, especially compared to the Westin Hotel lobby, which we walked through to get to the ramp.That wasn't the real problem, though. My parmesan chicken was way overdone, two hockey pucks. The appetizer lump crab cake was soggy and bland. We took it home to eat with crackers as a sort of dip with added seasoning. We didn't order alcoholic drinks, just tea, and we thought that might have been the reason the waitress rushed us through (lower bill) since it was not crowded at all. On the upside, our salads were good, and previously, we have had the clam chowder at the bar, which is really good.

    We had not been to M&S for a year or two. Liked to think of it as upscale, good food and service. Unfortunately, we saw none of these things this past Sunday. We knew things were not going to go well when the first thing the server tried to do was push the "preferred" diner card as a way to save a couple of $$. Really?! At a restaurant like this, I care about saving a buck or two when they charge $13 for a cocktail? Thought she was going to push the timeshare in Mexico next. Food orders were confused, ordered sides that only showed up late and were cold when served. My wine for dinner came out after I was done eating, 20 minutes AFTER I'd asked 3 times for it. Nope...not going to frequent M&S or any Landry restaurant again.

    Altogether the dining experiences was quite good. Chopin Vodka Martinis. were perfect. We then had Blue Pont oysters which were rather small but delicious. High recommends for the lobster bisque. Lobster Cobb salad -- thumbs down. Microscopic amount of lobster and altogether too bland. We also had mussels in a tomato garlic sauce which was delicious. The server was excellent.

    Our experience was extremely disappointing. We enjoyed our short time in the bar area. We were shown to our table 10 minutes after our reservation time. We were seated next to the kitchen doors that kept swinging open and close and at times stuck open so all the noise of the pans banging and hubbub in the kitchen was heard. We waited 40 minutes for our soup and salads to arrive. The soup was VERY salty and barely warm. The salad greens were wet and soggy. The entrees took forever to arrive. The fish and chips were great but the lobster and steak were dry, tasteless and tough. We will not go back.

    We have eaten at McCormick and Schmick's many times. I have avoided giving it a bad review though the experience was less than excpected.Tonight I have to say, it will be a while before we return. We both ordered the Palm Beach Mahi which we have always enjoyed.It is actually my husband's favorite entree at this restaurant. The preparation was different from what we previously enjoyed. The fish did not taste fresh, there were small little flies flying around and there was an unpleasant smell. I did not finish my food. I felt the service was marginal as well. The good news was when they brought our check we had a $25 credit from having dined there so much before so at least we felt we hadn't spent what we would have otherwise.

    we like to choose your retaurant for special occasions and it usually is a wonderful experience. Our server was excepional. I was somewhat upset when I got home and saw a special price for the dinner that my son ordered. It was the steak and lobster dinner for $25.99. We paid regular price the day before. I was also not totally pleased with my Swordfish choice. Not your fault, but mine. We do always enjoy the ambiance. MK

    I have been to the Happy Hour before, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had one of the best hamburgers ever, and the price was right!. Our waitress was wonderful and very knowledgeable. I enjoyed my wine, and sitting outside. I only wish it was a little quieter outside. The music was a little too loud for us "older folks" with hearing difficulties.

    My wife and I were disappointed in the food itself and the lack of flavor. I had the swordfish which tasted like it had not been seasoned at all, very bland. My wife had the steak and lobster with the red pepper mashed potatoes. The lobster was good but the steak also lacked some flavor and the mashed potatoes had zero flavor. Service was friendly and attentive but we probably won't return to McCormick & Schmick's.

    The food in general was good. I really liked the fried shrimp. The other shrimp I had was good, but not as good as fried. Prices were a little higher, especially the drinks. Drinks were overpriced. The creme brulee was a little too done on top, had a little burnt taste on part of it. I wouldnt go here often as I can get just as good at red lobster for a lot less.

    I've dined here many times over the past couple year, and the happy hour menu is worth talking about. Note, main menu is nice to look at but the food is sub par. We had a range... fish tacos, chicken raps, shrimp, tuna platter etc. Best were the fish tacos, they are fried (can be made grilled, but understandably that is for an additional fee) they had great flavor. The chicken was dry and over cooked, but the sauce managed to cover some if that. The shrimp was..... not worth even the happy hour price. Completely fried beyond recognition. I would go again to get the fish tacos....grilled.

    We made reservations to celebrate our 32nd anniversary. We have been to this restaurant in a different city and loved it!...not so much this time around. Ten minutes before the waiter came with water or to even acknowledge us. This was a Thursday night and not at all busy. Twenty minutes later we got our first cocktail and my husbands had a bug floating in it! Ick!!! We were waiting on our salad when our entrée came. The waiter forgot to put in the order...yow! The food was fine but nothing to shout about. It was not a very good experience and was a real bummer since we were celebrating as well. Oh yes, and of all the tables they had available they sat us right outside of the kitchen doors! Not going back and would not recommend.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/6/2014
    The quality of the steak and fish as well as service was marginal and not commensurate with this price point. Preparation was in a league of say a Red Lobster or Outback including the service. Slow service for water, bread etc. Then server tried to be too charming. Soupy tasteless lobster mashed potatoes akin to what an 8 year old might try to prepare. Then to top it off a complimentary dessert wad not offered to the birthday guest. Apparently, noting her birthday on a printed menu was considered enough. It appears some cost cutting cutting may have gone too far. Disappointing.

    Service was outstanding and waitress did an excellent job of upselling. The only thing that is strange is that there is 1 bathroom in the restaurant, which only 1 person can use at a time. Had to go into hotel lobby to use the restroom there as the men's room was occupied. Seems to be too much of an effort to use the restroom at a restaurant.
