McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Pasadena
Special EveningGreat for adults celebrating special occasions. From the greeting at the front desk to the person who seated us, to our waiter, we were made to feel welcome. Loved the intimate seating in a high-backed wooden booth. (Unwelcome surprise a wailing baby, but the family soon left. Definitely not a kiddie night spot!) We had the perfect waiter--there when we needed him, knowledgeable about the menu & wine list. My guest loved the caesar salad & seared ahi tuna; I found the walnut mixed greens salad delicious. My halibut was cooked perfectly, but removed much of the herb crust seasoning as it was a bit too salty for my taste. Yummy desserts: peach cobbler, cinnamon ice cream. Third time there & looking forward to our next visit.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Enjoyable FirstDining at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant was a nice surprise. We ordered salads and were pleasantly pleased with the large, healthy portion. The fresh baked bread was perfect for seconds. My Oregon Rockfish was grilled to perfection with a light sauce on the side. My husband had the Medallions of Beef with Shrimp that was cooked just right. The fresh vegetables and mashed potatoes that accompanied our meals were tasty and plentiful. My husband ordered a slice of cheesecake that arrived large enough for three! Our waiter was a delight and very helpful. We've added McCormick & Schmick to our come-back list of restaurants in Pasadena.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLate BirthdayMy wife and I celebrated a late birthday and enjoyed a quiet evening dining on shrimp scampi. My wife is not a seafood person, but enjoyed the creme brule better after dinner.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWaiterOur waiter was very helpful in reviewing the awesome menu.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh & PeacefulI always come here when "THEY LET ME OUT!"

Love the fare!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll be BackMcCormick's has always been a personal favorite of mine. They have made some changes to their menu and the Calamari appetizer, which was always good, is now a must order. Their combination plates are fit for two which is great if you are looking to cut portions yet not walk away from the table still hungry. We look forward to coming back.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Dinner for my HusbandThis was our first visit to this Greene and Greene styled restaurant and we were very pleased. We were given a window booth and had a lovely view of the courtyard and fountains. The starter, Shrimp Kisses, was different and delicious as was the Almond Cookie Basket dessert. Both entrees were very good---a seafood platter for him and mahi mahi for me, tho his salmon could have been cooked a bit more (it was not listed as "seared"). The crab potato hash served with the mahi mahi was outstanding but the corn bisque was disappointing. I thought it would be a small bowl of soup but it was part of the plate decoration. Very nicely presented--and very tasty, just not what I expected! We did certainly enjoy our evening.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLike going homeWe hadn't been to McCormick & Schmick's for at least three years. The Hostess was pleasant and courteous. We arrived early and the rest of our party arrived late. We were seated to wait (our choice, after being asked). The waiter asked if we would like drinks, brought bread and we were supplied with water by his helper. The waiter was the best we had seen in years, quiet, courteous, attentive, pleasant and other adjectives, which I'm sure would fit. The food, as remembered, was just right.
Overall it was nice to return to McCormick & Schmick's Pasadena.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic AmbianceIt was a perfect evening of fine dining, sumptuous food, great service and wonderful ambiance.

Very disappointed in him, especially when we were celebrating a birthday and don't go to Mc&S very often!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat overall experienceMy experience was amazing.

Wanting to make it extra special i arrived an hour early to decorate the table and not only was the staff okay with this, several offered to help. Three dozen balloons...and streamers...and confetti...the works.
Our server even brought my very particular Mother a glass of water that was "not too cold and not too hot" and a large pitcher of room temperature water for the 4 betta fish bowls we used as decor/gifts. Thats right betta fish...
She also brought me a glass of wine which after raising twin girls to adulthood I very much appreciated.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect and convenient location.Perfect and convenient location.
