Diner Reviews
  • "We made our reservations well in advance, specifically requesting a booth, and we were given the worst table in the house. Also, the service was spotty, and presented us the wrong check when we were ready to leave."

  • "Dined on a Tuesday evening so not a hectic weekend crowd. Wait staff was cordial and prompt. Waiter offered suggestions, was attentive and knew the menu well. Food was excellent...mussels were a little to big to be really tender, but clam chowder and halibut was outstanding. Would definitely recommend it for dinner out or group events. When making reservations, let them know if you are celebrating a birthday...nice surpise awaits you."

  • "Drinks took forever to get. The drink my daughter and I ordered had to be altered because they did not have the ingredients. Food took forever. Husbands entree was OK but steaks were not cooked to order and my whole plate was ice cold. Manager was accommodating and removed from the bill. So over priced for food and experience. Will not return."

  • "No complaints at all on the food. We tried the lobster mashed potatoes for the first time and loved them. Our problem are the drinks. One time they are good, the next they are not. We ordered the $12.00 margarita's, not the happy hour ones and were very disappointed. We made a decision that was the last time we were ordering drinks there. We don't mind paying a higher price for drinks...but we expect them to be good. The glass was overfilled with ice, and the drinks were weak. We complained to the bartender and he basically told us that is how it is. We'll, if that is how it is we are done ordering drinks there. Too bad,because a couple times we ordered them they were as good as the ones we make at home."

  • "We loved the restaurant from the minute we walked in! Beautiful old building and the interior was spectacular. The food was excellent and served in a timely matter. The location of the restaurant is great because you can take a stroller around the neighborhood and shop or just take in the view down by the river."

  • "We wanted take the family somewhere special to celebrate our Son's College Graduation. We selected three restaurants and let him make the final decision. After reviewing all of the menus, he decided on McCormick & Schmick's South Side location. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was excellent as well as the food. Our waiter was very patient with us as some of us were having a difficult time making a decision from the wide variety of menu items. My son ordered the filet mignon cooked med rare. It was perfectly cooked and well seasoned. Two of us had the steak and lobster, also very well prepared. Our experience there made a special occasion even more special. We would definitely go back."

  • "My wife and I went out for a special night, we were seated quickly upon arrival at a table by the window, we were a little early for our reservation (I do not think the reservation was necessary they were not crowded) The restaurant is on one of the main streets in the shopping area, at our window seat we could see EVERYTHING going by. My wife and I were dressed up, that was not needed. There were people dining in shorts. Our waitress was prompt and the service throughout the whole meal was great. The food was excellent and came out rather quickly. Our bill came to $90!! We did not even have any alcohol. We will not go back there are plenty of other places for a special night out that way nicer and less expensive!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Our dining experience was basically good. However, wait staff should know to remove extra place settings at the table when there are only two diners. Food was good but just a bit salty. You can always add salt but you can't take it out. Overall, the dining experience was good."

  • "For Father's Day, my wife treated me to a teriffic dinner at McCormick & Schmick's Southside restaurant. We each had a great appetizer (clam chowder & ceasar salad) followed by wonderful fish dinners. My wife also enjoyed a very good glass of wine. All in all, a great way to spend Father's Day!"

  • "Dining early on Father' Day (5:15) restaurant was busy but not noisy; that changed in 45 minutes as the noise went up several decibels. Decent food (chef specials are well worth the price); pricey wine list though. Natasha was a cheerful and helpful waitress. Unless you ask for a booth, you can be crammed in like a can of sardines. Probably a good choice for dining during the week."

  • " We ate early (around 4:30 on Sunday) and our server (Alex) was terrific. He made us aware of the new program being offered (which we jumped at) and he also told us about the restaurant's 35th anniversary. The anniversary menu was interesting. I liked the fact that there weren't too many choices. The anniversary bottle of wine for $35 was delightful. I had the salmon (grilled on a wood plank) which was excellent. It was accompanied by a serving of arugula and also by grilled veggies. The chocolate gluten-free cake(?) that I had for dessert was delicious. Kudos to the dessert chef! Alex was very personable and extremely attentive to our needs. Overall, our dinner was very pleasant and I look forward to our next dinner here."

  • "My mother and I went for dinner one night and the waitress "Melissa" asked if we would like bottled water. My mother, not knowing that the bottled water was different from the served water, said she would like a bottle of water. She thought she was getting a plastic bottle. My only request is that the waitress should have let her know that the water she was bringing was a small fee. The other male waiters that night kept walking past our table with the pitchers of ice water, and shaking the ice every time they past our table. I knew the water would be charged, but my mother had no idea and it just would have been nice to have been told and given the option."

  • "I have been a loyal fan/client of McCormick and Schmicks for years but our recent trip for Mother's Day dinner was far from the wonderful experiences previously enjoyed there. To start, we had to wait almost a half hour for a table that we had a reservation for. After being seated, far too much time was taken to take our drink orders, bring our drinks, take our dinner orders and finally come back with our meals. As a waitress it would have been in her best interests to perhaps explain/apologize for the delays, esp. if it was being caused by being short staffed! But no apology was made. The meals were cold, swordfish was poor, which never happens there; and they were out of many of the dessert and dinner specials. Extremely disappointing"

  • "McCormick & Schmick on the Southside was wonderful for a Mother's Day dinner that wasn't a buffet. While the prices are high the food was good and the service excellent. The only thing between this meal and a five star rating was that my salmon was raw and barely room temperature at one end. Our server was busy and I didn't want to ruin Mom's day so I just left well enough alone."

  • "This is the 4th year we have celebrated Mother's Day with a party of 10. Great menu, service and tables are not too close to one another that makes for a nice setting for a large table."

  • "Sat down within five mins. Service was outstanding. Can't say enough about our waitress, Carly. She is the epitome of what a good waitress should be . Carly was very pleasant, knowledgeable, and was a great help in assisting with the menu choices. Terrific experience due to Carly. On return visits, I will request her."

  • "This was my 2nd time bringing my mom for brunch on her special day. The menu was excellent and the service was outstanding. We never felt rushed, which allowed us to enjoy a lovely meal, drinks, and dessert. The manager spent a few minutes engaging my mother in conversation and I know that it meant a lot to my mom. It was a very classy touch and genuine. Looking forward to our next visit! "

  • "Service was beyond slow.Had rsvps for 7:45 - was sat at 8:00.But did not leave until after 10 due to the SLOW arrival of our food.Actually had to go ask for hot sauce for oysters after waiting over 15 minutes. Half of the mussels weren't opened&very little broth, but several rocks! Halibut was VERY dry and over cooked. The dessert was stale. At this point after dealing with it all, we asked for the cake to be taken off the bill. The waiter said manager said no. We asked for the manager to come over. He was THE biggest ahole I've ever met. Very condescending & said cake was fine. Asked us what we wanted him to do. How about learning how to treat your customers for starters.Only independent restaurants from now on. And restrooms had no tp"

  • "Second time I've been here. Both times, service great, atmosphere nice, and food excellent. The only suggestion I would have is to improve/expand the dessert menu. Got the flourless chocolate cake the first time, and the red velvet cake this time. Wasn't happy with either, and I didn't think that there is enough of a choice. "

  • "Brought a group of 9 to the restaurant on May 4, my parents' 60th wedding anniversary. I had asked them to print the Congratulations to them at the top of the menu,which they did. Our service was very good, and they accommodated the flowers and confetti that I had brought, and helpfully took the box in which I had transported the flowers and stowed it away. From the host/hostess to our server, and anyone else we encountered, all were gracious and helpful. We had a lovely luncheon. Thank you, McCormick & Schmick's!!"
