  • "We planned on having a quiet family celebration for my son, but we actually arrived for our reservation with twice the number of family members who surprised us by joining at the last minute. The staff was wonderfully accommodating and seated us in a private room that they arranged at the last minute just for us. The food was excellent, the service was outstanding, and our son had a wonderful time. Thanks to the manager and staff for making our evening truly special!"

  • "We arrived about 5 minutes early for a 7:30 reservation and had to wait more than 15 minutes to be seated. Meanwhile another group that came in a few minutes after us with a 7:30 reservation were seated immediately. When we were finally led to our table, we passed at least four empty tables the same size as the table we were seated at, so I don't understand why we had to stand at the hostess counter for so long. There were always vacant tables the entire 90 minutes we were there, so I doubt the empty tables were for other reservations. The food was OK, but our main courses lacked seasoning. The only dish we really enjoyed was the berry cobbler dessert."

  • "Went to dinner with wife and kids (age 13 & 6). We ended up in a little private dining room, so it was almost like we were there by ourselves. The service was excellent and the food as well. The only drawback is I'm a rather hearty eater and I find the portion sizes small for what you're paying for the meal. Beyond that, I would recommend M&S to anyone."

  • "I cam to eat with a friend who wanted to take me out for lunch. It was a Friday, and so she wanted to eat fish. I could tell she was disappointed by her meal, so it was not a positive experience. We had to ask for bread which was not automatically put on the table as it has been in the past. I have eaten there several before and it seemed much better."

  • "The halibut was superb, but the rockfish didn't seem as fresh as we had expected. Dessert was excellent. The staff was pleasant, and our waiter especially helpful. But despite having a reservation and being on time, we had to wait 15 minutes for a table for two. And there is no place to sit while waiting!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We ordered 2 of the more expensive dishes, the ribeye and the halibut ($35 each), and they were both overcooked. We were the last table in the restaurant so we felt akward sending them back. A bit disappointed."

My last experience was great because we had a private area, which was great for my business meeting. keep up the great work!"

  • "As far as the food goes it was all very good. We shared a Lobster Bites appetizer which was good, and had Scallops and Stuffed Shrimp as appetizers. Our server was a little unsure of certain menu items and drink service was very slow, otherwise no complaints."

  • "Great service. Everyone tries to please you. They succeed. The private booths are a great place to eat and talk. They have a frequent diner's club to earn rebates. The food was cooked well, tasted good. Free underground parking or complimentary valet. It's like an upscale steak house but for fish."

  • "If a romantic date is on your mind, then the weekend slots are best to place your reservations. The food is phenomenal regardless of the day of the week though. I forgot how busy Tyson's Corner can be and brought a first date into the restaurant on Thursday after being there the previous Saturday evening. My enjoyment perception rating went from outstanding to great. Still not bad, but if on a first through third date and or special occasion, and if able, book on a weekend. Overall, great place to be regardless because the food is so yummy."

  • "The food was excellent. We chose the Special 3 course dinner and the food was great. The value was extraordinary. Deena our server was so attentive and helpful during our ordering process. She was very cordial. We will ask for her again. Can't wait until our next visit, as long as the specials continue. Great idea to bring folks in and to have them return. All in all a wonderful experience."

  • "Parking and the location of the restaurant was difficult to find. The server wasn't too friendly, but the manager came by a couple of times to see if we were alright. The food was really good."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "The Calamari appetizer was enjoyable. We ordered Fish and Chips for two main courses, one with salad substitution for chips. The cod was fresh and plentiful but unfortunately neither it nor the batter had any seasoning. The accompanying coleslaw was overly sweet so we did not care to eat it. The biggest problem was that the fish was served on a bed of fries which inevitably rendered them limp and soggy, so we did not care to eat those either. The Manager noted our issues without our having to call him and he was very attentive and candid in recognizing that the plating of the Fish and Chips could easily have been done differently, with much better results. This is a nice restaurant which is well run, but the food does not measure up."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Very good food. Meh for service. Seared Ahi Tuna was outstanding! Simply perfect. Stuffed Atlantic Salmon was good, but not up to the tuna. Stuffed with lump crab, bay shrimp, brie cheese over mashed potatoes, it was quite light on the crab, shrimp and brie. Didn't see ANY shrimp, one tiny piece of crab and there may have been brie melted in the sauce. Salmon cooked very nicely -- just very lacking on the stuffed part or any extras. Didn't see bread on menu, nor was I offered any. Then after our dinner, several tables were brought nice pieces of warm fresh bread...then seconds...and more. Do I really have to ASK for bread before dinner with our wine? Our server was professional, but far short of personable. No real personality."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We had a nice dinner with friends on a weeknight. Food was very good - calamari and a yummy bacon wrapped shrimp for appetizers. Entrees we had crab cakes and fish entrees. All very good. Waiter was excellent."

  • "I go to this restaurant a lot because it is right next to my office building. Usually the food and service are wonderful. But this time our meals were not all served at the same time, and I had to return a dish I've ordered and liked in the past because two of the three ingredients (crabmeat and mango) were spoiled. I was with clients so I didn't want to make a big deal about it. I will go back but hope next time things are better."

  • "The oysters were excellent! For seafood, McCormick and Schmick's always tops."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Went to M&S because they have the greatest variety of fish on the menu and prepared in different ways. Raw oysters were very good, as were the trout (blackened) and scallops (seared) Vegetables were good, but too much butter . Crab soup good, but lukewarm when arrived. Dessert (fruit cobbler) good. Service good overall, a little slow to arrive at first, but very good once started."

  • "We throughly enjoyed the food and the experience there. Our waitress was very attentive. We will return at a later date."

  • "several items were greasy, perhaps too much butter or oil, and salad the worst i have had, mostly white (non green) rinds of romaine. i think the food quality has gone down hill over the years."

  • "My fiancé and I planned our whole weekend away down to the meals we would be eating. I planned to have the seared ahi tuna and of course they ran out of tuna by time we arrived to dinner. I settled for the stuffed Atlantic salmon which actually turned out to be a great choice! I was bummed about the tuna but I would definitely come back for the salmon. At the end of dinner, the waiter explained to us what happened with the tuna running out and told us the chef would be bringing us out a complimentary plate of ahi tuna. My fiancé and I appreciated that so much! If the salmon didn't save dinner then the nice gesture of the chef and server surely did!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Having been to McCormick & Schmick's previously, I was expecting the same quality of food and service. I received neither on this visit. The server was very odd from the time he initially walked up to greet us. Then the food was not quite up to the level we were expecting. My steak had no taste and was not cooked properly. Generally, the food was lacking in taste. The creme de brule was also less than savory. It was if someone had used vanilla pudding and burned the top layer. Taste and appearance were off."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We waited an extra 20 minutes after our reservation. We were missing our bread plate. And the holiday ensured a busy night, and yet all of this was forgotten once we tasted the food. A truly superb mussels sauce and delicious tuna tartar opened our meal and each dish that followed was even better. We both will gladly dine there again."

    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "This is my 2nd visit to McCormick and while the service was excellent, the food this time was not as good as I remembered. We had the cold plate sampler which had shrimp, lobster, oyster and snow crab. The snow crab and lobster was flavorless. I don't know if it wasn't the season or not but there was absolutely no sweetness to the meat at all and no seasoning. I also had the scallops and lobster bisque. Both very salty. The Blue Point oysters were good though. I can't fault the service and the tables were very private so it was great for a small party celebrating a birthday."
