    We were there with six people. Everyone loved the food and experience. The only down side is we were in one of their semi-private 'rooms', which was a bit crowded for us and made it difficult for the server. Personally, I'd preferred to be at a large round table in the main dining area. Next time, I'll make that request when I book a table that large.

    If your going here on a date make sure you ask for a location that is quiet for a couple. They'll give you a private booth with a divider curtain. Very romantic.

    Food was very good. My steak was perfectly prepared and my wife's Bouillabaisse was delicious. A casual drink on the patio after was an excellent cap to the evening. It was my wife's birthday and she was impressed with the Brownie/Ice cream and Happy Birthday written in chocalate on the plate. Not your typical cupcake.

    Dined on 10/18/2014
    We walked into the restaurant and there was a line. Oprah was at the Toyota Center.The manager did not bother to look at that or care that I had a reservation. His exact words were " Are you part of that Oprah Group?" I said yes but I have a reservation and he said we are swamped and you will have to wait. We thought the bar would be faster service but we were wrong. We literally had to write down our order and hand it to the bartender after we set for 20 min with no service. Once we received our kale salads 5 min before we had to leave, we looked at the waitress and said these are not kale. Her response was " I know, we ran out earlier." Staff was literally running because management was unprepared.

    I went here for a celebration dinner with my friend and we had an amazing time. Started the evening with the shrimp kisses. My entree was the surf and turf. Her entree was the mixed grill. We finished with the creme brûlée for dessert. The presentation of each dish was stunning and everything was perfectly cooked. It was the best meal either of us have had in a very long time. I look forward to my next meal there!

    I have always noticed that the menu options are plentiful and not so common. Sometimes a busy menu can be cumbersome for patrons, however McCormick & Schmick's selections are arranged to pique your palette. The delicious meals are the perfect follow-through, making them a valued visit to the restaurant.

    This was a great experience for my husbands birthday. The personalized menus were a fun touch, but the best thing about our visit was the food. All 12 of our guests were extremely happy with their seafood or steaks, and i think i could have made a meal out of just the variety of mashed potato dishes that were at the table. Thank you McCormick & Schmick's for making it such a great day.

    We just moved here from Denver, Colorado a few weeks ago, celebrating a birthday dinner seemed overwhelming on a romantic restaurant selection ... We chose familiar, Denver has a McComicks so let's give it s try ... Beautiful area, fabulous outdoor patio, amazing food. We made the right choice. Wish we would have gone early to walk around the area ... Looks as wonderful!

    It was not busy and we sat at the table for about 10 min. before anyone tried to help us. Food was not cooked as we asked. Trying to get someone to help was bad. People would walk by and not look at you. It had to be the waiter when he finally came by.

    It's still halibut season and I love it so my husband suggested we go. We had friends that wanted to hang out with us and they also like fish so we asked them to join us. My halibut was perfect. The others had trout which they also said was really good. Service was a tad slow even though they did not seem busy, but polite and freindly. The decor is a bit too business now to be "romantic". One of the nicer things is they are willing to make substitutions. I don't have a problem at all paying a couple bucks to trade out mashed potatoes for broccolini. They'll trade out preparations too if they can if you ask and it's possible

    My wife recently had dinnere here, and it was fair-some items great others average. The good-chopped salad, excellent lobster bisque, grilled redfish. The fair- parmesan crusted flounder, served as three small triangular pieces, with very little sauce. Reminiscent of fishsticks from a box. Pecan pie must've been old as the crust was nearly impossible to cut, decent flavor. I've had better experiences here at lunch.
