    As always, we look for something special on birthdays, something out of the ordinary. McCormick and Schmick's seems like the place. Although there was nothing wrong with food or service, it just seemed ordinary. I've eaten there may times before; this time it was average--a disappointment, for sure. I hope they can do better.

    Have visited on multiple occasions- this time to celebrate a friends b-day. We were seated in a semi private room with a round table that made it feel a little more special- all meals were prepared and timed well (all 5 of us chose seafood dishes). On this evening as in the others the restaurant was not very busy, but this has and did lend to a higher level of attention from our server. We will continue to visit due to the consistent good experience we've had here.

    The appetizers we had were good (blue crab dip with pita chips) but the entrees were a little off in taste. My wife and I got pasta and both dishes were a little on the dry side. Regarding beverages our server took our orders. About five minutes later she came back and took our orders again. The restaurant wasn't really that busy so I don't understand that. A wine glass was about served about 1/4 full and that was considered a drink. Seriously why bother at all. We really aren't sure if we'll go back. It was just a little pricey considering what you got.

    We always try new fish, but this time the new Snapper variety was not as good a fish as more standard red snapper, even though pricier. So it is good to try new types, but not always fit your palate.

    In addition to the heirloom salad, which most higher end place are serving this summer, McCormick and Schmick always seems to ahve a range of new fish. Oceano and Bristol also do but while I'd rank Bristol and M & C as a tie, Oceano is definitely down lately.

    My husband & I had brunch at McCormick & Schmick's on a Sunday afternoon. The weather was perfect so we sat outside. We both got the fish tacos and they were delicious! We had a hard time deciding on what to order since the rest of the menu looked so good, which we both viewed as a good reason to return sometime soon!

    Luckily we had a gift card. Service was great drew was knowledgeable and friendly. Menu was completely overpriced and lacked any originality. Salmon was fishy and fell short on seasoning even for the midwest. Restaurant was nice and I feel like they could do so much more. Place was empty for a Friday night. Don't recommend. Sorry.

    It took over an hour to receive our food after we placed our order. When we ordered our soup the waiter asked if we would like some hot rolls and we said yes. The soup came and no rolls. I had to finally ask when our entrees we going to arrive and the response was soon, the kitchen was backed up. I'm not sure why the kitchen was backed up I counted twelve empty tables in the area we were sitting in. I also had to ask for those rolls after our dinner arrived. The waiters need to pay attention to their tables. On the bright side the food was wonderful.

    My wife and I had dinner and enjoyed it. Our crab tower appetizer was not good as probably just made wrong choice. Our entrees were very good- seared scallops for her and I had blackened mahi mahi w andouille mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach- both I highly recommend. Unfortunately on this August evening the temperature in the restaurant was way too high and made for too uncomfortable of a seating. We weren't the only ones as a few other people complained and were fanning themselves. Don't know if this is routine or just a bad night but we will be back to see.

    My husband and I enjoy seafood and our teenage son is a meat eater so everyone is happy here. The location is convenient at West Count Center as we were visiting my aunt who was rehabbing around the corner. For a Saturday night we were able to get a table at 6:45 which is not an easy task at the last minute. The fish is fresh and our son's filet was cooked perfect. He had his heart set on the plain mac-n-cheese which we were told they no longer serve. It was available with shrimp and lobster. He is also a big chocolate dessert fan so he ordered the chocolate gooey butter cake. That was disappointing. Very dry and crumbled in your mouth. Actually tasted kind of old. Bread was not offered but, that was fine by us.

    What a failure for this McCormick & Schmick's. Except for the manager, everything was bad. Watered-down drink; shrimp remoulade with absolutely no flavor; bitter mussels; salad ordered with shrimp on top--the shrimp came 15 minutes after again asking; lactose intolerant diner ordered Kobe burger without cheese, it was brought with cheese, returned and re-served within 1 minute which was witnessed by manager who removed it and had a fresh burger cooked and served. After waiting 10 minutes for a glass of ice, we had to go to the bar ourselves. The restaurant wasn't busy enough to account for their bad food and service. We shall never return to this McCormick & Schmick's.

    Our guests are quite knowledgeable wine folks, and I believe our server, Jeff, was up to matching wines to their orders. Big plus! Our table of 4 shared 2 appetizers with a bacon wrapped shrimp and a crab tower both being well presented and prepared-well seasoned, delicious. Fresh oysters, swordfish, tilapia, shrimp plus some wonderful desserts finished the meal. Always delighted to have an establishment meet our expectations and especially the expectations of our guests. As a bonus, our server asked about our son in the Marine Corps who dined here more than a year ago. Very thoughtful.

    We recently went to M&S to celebrate our 15 year old's birthday (which I noted when booking the reservation through Open Table). Upon arrival, the hostess immediately wished my son a happy birthday and took us to our table, where she give him his own special menu with a personalized birthday greeting. Nice touch! Service was just okay. Appetizers (lump crab tower and crab cake) were great, as was the lobster bisque. Barramundi entree was not up to par, but the shrimp scampi was outstanding, as were the desserts. Would recommend the fixed price option, as the menu prices are rather high.

    We were looking forward to some real good seafood and I have to say that this was a disappointing experience. We started with the calamari which was actually good. For our entree, my husband got the almond-crusted rainbow trout and I the sea bass. His trout was a little oily and my sea bass was bland and almost dry. I've had some really delicious sea bass in other places where the fish just melted in my mouth. We had to ask for my wine order as our server forgot about it. We also had to ask for water refills. Dining outside, we were bothered by so much bugs. I would expect that they would do something to control this. Other customers didn't seem to be as bothered and I don't know why. It was a very disappointing dining experience overall.

    The food as usual was good but the ambiance was lacking; at times we felt as though we were in a diner rather than an upscale establishment....service was slow. We were seated next to the kitchen so we couldn't even hear the waiter as he asked for our order, etc. View was of the parking lot and the windows were filthy. All in all, not a special dining experience. I would still recommend the restaurant as I hope this was an exception rather than the rule.

    We brought my parents for dinner for my mothers 74th birthday...drinks were fine... appetizers great. Then everything went down hill. We waited for 1 1/2 hours for dinner to be served...they forgot my husbands salad . After pointing out to the waitress that it was way too long and everyone else around us had been served and they had been seated after us, you would think they would have gotten the food out...no! 10 minutes later the food was delivered. By this time my husband left and asked to see the manager outside....long and short of it, I was embarrassed. Horrible experience. We will never go back.

    Wanted to try because it offered fish. Ordered the Haddock, did not think it was anything outstanding especially because of the prices ($34.99) The fish at Bristols is better. The salad was good, but again not outstanding, was to be greens with walnuts, there was only 1/2 of a walnut. Partner had the scallops, which he said where some of the best he has had, his came with rasitto which was also good. The side dishes where also on the high side, but where very large portions, easily could be shared. We had a bottle of wine which was similar in pricing to most other restuarants we go to. We will probably not return, as we feel there are other restuarants that serve better fish. Our server was good and very attentive.

    We sat at our table for at least 7-8 minutes prior to a server even acknowledging us. She was nice, but confused as to who we 'belonged to'. The manager did stop by, and say 'sorry', but not much more. French 75 we had at the bar was great; the 2nd was a totally different, and not very good, cocktail. No sugar on the rim, tasted like a cheap shot. $10 DRINKS SHOULD BE QUALITY AND CONSISTENT. We had Oysters (quite good) and the flatbread - flatbread was burnt, extremely light on toppings, and zero goat cheese at all on the appetizer. We didn't even stay for dinner. Very disappointed. Was not our first time there, but may be the last.
