Diner Reviews
  • "Steak medallions were fatty & chewy. Bread was stale and hard. Salad was not fresh. Not a very good day for them."

  • "My entire group of 5 was pleased with our lunch experience. There was a very good selection of meals with a good range of prices. The personalized birthday menus and delicious molten lava cake and ice cream were unexpected delights."

  • "I came here for my birthday gift from the Landry Club and was not dissapointed with the quality of the food and staff. It was not crowded and had a good selection of fresh fish. The only thing I would recommend to the restaurant is that the sourdough bread is not as fresh as I'm accustomed to."

  • "The manager should be aware that business lunch service was too slow to be acceptable, orders were mishandled, and no accommodation was made."

  • "I took friends there for a birthday lunch. They enjoyed all the food: the fish and chips, and the crap stuffed shrimp was superb. I always enjoy coming to McCormick & Schmick's. The server we had was very attentive. High praises all around."

  • "This was my wife's and my first date night out in almost three years due to two very young children and finances. We decided the time was right for a special night out. We were late for our reservation and Dick the manager was very accommodating. Our server Nick had only three tables. He was very polite, knew the menu, and seemed nice. Unfortunately, after he delivered our entrée he disappeared. He passed by my empty wine glass sitting at the edge of the table four times with out noticing or stopping for more than 20 minutes. My wife wanted dessert but since he wouldn't come around we went and had dessert and more wine elsewhere. They lost money on that trip and future customers. I've eaten at M&S six times; never again at this one."

  • "My wife & I have been coming to McCormick & Schmick's for year's and always enjoyed it here. We had dinner last saturday night and it was a disappointment! Service was slow. Ordered 2 Lobster & steaks dinner's and the portions were small. The lobster tail was about 3 ounces (appetizer) and the steak was tough. "

  • "Went to lunch here, good food and service was OK, the waitress didn't really check on me too much which was Ok however just thought she would have paid a little more attention to me since I was the only one in that section. Oriental salad is very good and filling for a quick lunch. Would recommend this place for dinner or lunch will be back"

  • "The food was good. The service was fair. We were a bit surprised being that it was Mother's Day that there were no buss boys. We had to ask for water. Our waitress was not receptive to filling up our empty glasses with water. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I was surprised that the steak & lobster i got had a very small lobster tail (only 2 bites) whereas the steak & lobster plates brought to a guest at my table and to other tables were twice as big."

  • "Our party went to M&S's because it is convenient to the Pasadena Auditorium. We found it on OpenTable. The restaurant is decorated in heavy wood, kind of old world effect. It was quiet, so we could actually hold a conversation. It was Monday evening so this could change during busier nights. The food was delicious. Three of our party had the sole encrusted with Parmeson cheese and it was great. A nice side is that they have complementary parking, a rarity in Pasadena."

  • "Never realize there was a McCormick & Schmick's Seafood at Pasadena. The area is nice. Since it was on a Monday evening, it was less crowded and the dinning area was very quiet. We got excellent service and food was great."

  • "Went for Mother's Day. Sat on the patio. Nice atmosphere except for people from Calif Pizza Kitchen searching in wrong place for elevator and distracting us. Clam chowder was extremely good. Portions seemed a bit smaller than other fine restaurants. Seafood combo was very good, but could have had more shrimp. Salmon was the right amount and tasty. Mussels were good, but very small and not as many as elsewhere. Cesar salad was very good and large. Have a number of unique house cocktails. Waitress was nice, but too aggressive. We needed more time to look at the extensive menu. Finally figured out we'd be ready when we put our menus down. Huge wine selection. More expensive than other fine restaurants. We enjoyed ourselves and will go back."

  • "We went here for mothers day for a party of 15. I was surprised to get a table as a last minute reservation. I considered myself a foodie and eaten some of the fanciest (Mellise, Providence, Arroyo Chophous, Bestia) and hole in the wall eatery (King Taco, Savoy chicken). We were all disappointed with the appetizer and main entree. We didn't dare to order the dessert to further our demise. Service was top notch and server was very friendly and attentive."

  • "Though we did not go on Mother's Day, this meal was to serve as a special Mother's Day dinner. The hostess was extremely friendly and informative and we started out our experience on a great note. It took about 15 minutes between the waiter introducing himself and his return to take our drink order. Apparently they were changing out a keg, taking another half hour to get our Sam Adams draft. It doesn't take that long to change a keg. My mom has a medical condition making it essential for minimal sodium intake and we were assured that they could accommodate. We were told that she could get a specific steamed vegetable medley and when served, they were different vegetables. They also put capers on her fish which are loaded with sodium."

  • "The food was well-prepared and of excellent quality. The chef was good enough to split a large Maine lobster for us, and the dessert was sensational. Erik waited on us with a friendly efficient manner. This particular McCormick & Schmick Restaurant excels others we've patronized. Validated parking provides convenient access to the restaurant."

  • "It has been a while since I ate at M&S and I had forgotten how truly enjoyable an experience it is. It's definitely one of the better seafood houses in Pasadena. Service was exceptional and making a reservation a breeze. The scallops were cooked to order. Crisp and delicious. The salmon was prepared perfectly. The lobster tail side order was to die for. The food presentation was amazing. A hidden secret here is the bar tender makes fabulous drinks. Great job... I look forward to my next visit."

  • "Our first time to try McCormick and Schmick's - asking ourselves why we waited so long. We were celebrating our anniversary and this was a perfect choice. We were greeted cordially when we entered and since it was early there was no waiting to be seated. The staff was very friendly and the waiter made some excellent recommendations. The seafood was perfectly prepared, the portions were sized for a multi course meal. From the "Firecracker Shrimp" to the "Upside Down Apple Pie" and everything in between - delicious! We definitely plan to dine with them again. PS - they validate for parking. "

  • "The service was ok, but the food was lousy. To begin with, the menu has limited selections. We ordered the blue point oyster as an appetizer, but it was nothing appetizing. The oyster smell so bad that it became obvious of not being safe to eat. We ordered the stuffed shrimp, and the live lobster for the main course. The shrimp was not that fresh and we did not see any lump crab meat as mentioned in the menu. The lobster was overcooked. It was absolute disappointment. May be we went to the wrong place for quality seafood."

  • "We took my dad to enjoy an Easter lunch after attending our Easter service. He loved the clam chowder. My husband and I enjoyed our meals as well. Then of course being 91 years old he could not pass up on dessert. He enjoyed your creme brulee. The Host remembered my dad from another visit we made to the restaurant. Dad was very impressed as we were. Great meal and great service!"

  • "Not widely considered a "destination" place should not diminish the reputation of this quality fish house. Particularly at times when the staff and kitchen are not overloaded, the dining experience can be positively serene. Such was the case on an early Friday evening. Pristine grilled fish--fresh and perfectly cooked--along with crisp mixed vegetables and innovative salads and soups. Just another night at the office for this enduring chain. One we favor for repeat visits."

  • "We took friends for their anniversary (4 people total). It's a beautiful restaurant with cozy booths but also room for large groups. The food was very good. The service was slow. Three of the meals came out at the same time but we had to wait a bit for the 4th one. Also, a couple of things were not as ordered. Our server brought out the correct items. This McCormick & Schmick's did not have the same level of service as the one in North Carolina. "
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Although the server was pleasant the drink that I received was not made correctly. An Arnold Palmer should be at least 1/2 to 2/3 tea and the rest lemonade. What I received was mainly lemonade. Then I asked to have another one to another server that brought our food and I told our server that I asked the other person and I ended up with two more Arnold Palmers. First, I shouldn't have to ask to get another drink it should automatically come. Secondly, there should be better communication amongst the servers. I still gave a fairly good tip to our server only because he seemed new and that he was trying."

  • "Not at all what I thought it was going to be. Food a step above Applebee's. Fine for maybe a business lunch but don't go expecting it to be romantic, or remotely classy. Customers resembled maybe likened to an old country buffet....Server started out good but was hard to find at end, also disregarded my private request I had made on open table/prior to, causing me to do the very thing I didn't want to- which was to get up, track him down to ask about bday dessert which then made it obvious a surprise was coming. That said, at that point it didn't matter anymore anyway bc we were already laughing about the quality of everything throughout dinner. What else can you do..? Won't return. I should've investigated more b4 making the reservation."
