Having been here for many
Having been here for many St. Patrick's Days, this one was quieter, probably because it was on a Sunday this year. However, the food was excellent--I had the Irish Whiskey salmon and spinach. My daughter had chicken and pasta. We kept oohing and awing about how good it tasted. The service was there when we need it and not there when we were talking and didn't want to be bothered. One downside was there was no valet parking on Sunday. Being handicapped, that was troublesome.

We chose McCormick & Schmick's
We chose McCormick & Schmick's Seafood for dinner prior to attending a concert in Seattle and were very pleased with the food and the service was quite attentive. The ambience was great and we had plenty of time to enjoy our dinner prior to the concert. We will definitely recommend this restaurant to our friends and will put it among the top choices for another evening in the city.

Great location for going to events at Benaroya. Menu has something for everyone. Had a special that was fabulous. Service was excellent.

Our dinner was excellent and the staff was very attentive. Our server and chef went out of their way to accommodate my food allergies which I was very appreciative of. Look forward to dinning there again soon!

It was a special occasion for us and I am glad we were able to celebrate it at McCormick and Schmicks.

The fresh stuffed Salmon was fantastic! I would go back just for it.

McCormick & Schmick's is a
McCormick & Schmick's is a definite must when visiting Seattle. The food is local, the fish fresh and well-prepared, presentation,a work of art, and you won't leave still hungry. The dungeoness crab, avocado, and mango appetizer was beautiful with plenty to share, the King Salmon delicious.

Celebrating being a year older.
We arrived much earlier than are scheduled reservation. Were greated by Nick, who also ended up being our waiter, and I believe the Manager. Both were friendly and made us feel welcome. Our menus were personallized with husband's name and a Happy Birthday wish. Wow! The location, service and food were lovely. So many food choices and all good. Nick took the time to make us feel welcome and facilitate a lovely dinner and celebration.

For a very enjoyable evening...
Dark wood and booths provide a very pleasant ambience. Menu selection is varied and interesting. Grilled wild-caught king salmon was buttery, tender and full-flavored. My companions raved about their steaks. Service was excellent. Very nice place to dine when in Seattle.

Many great choices on the menu. We had a party of six so were able to try a variety of items and everything was outstanding. Service was good but could be better; had to wait longer than expected several times. All things considered (food, service, ambience, location, etc), prices were a bit on the high side. An enjoyable dining experience but will probably try one of the other locations next time.

Mothers day lunch
Thanks to Mccormicks we had the best Mother's Day yet! They reserved a special space for us without our knowledge, our Server did an amazing job with our group. This was our first Mother's Day without my grandmother so itvwas important to us that our moms enjoyed themselves. Both my Mom and Aunt let us know they really enjoyed themselves and everything from the choice of restaurant to the service was on point! Thank you!

We have enjoyed M&S restaurants in many cities and appreciate that they have some local menu items but they are consistently good where ever we go.

Food was excellent
We had a small family reunion since one couple just flew in from Charleston on their way to Hawaii and other family members were leaving for Boston, so we decided on McCormick's and Schmick's since we had been there before for a great lunch some time ago. The food was really outstanding - you will pay a fair sum for it but it was worth every penny. Oysters, fresh and fried, started off the evening, then soups and salads that everyone liked, then the main courses. The shrimp trio, the parmesan-crusted sole, the cashew trout, and other dishes I can't remember were all great. We had a wonderful two hour reunion of sorts and all departed saying this was a near perfect restaurant and evening. We will be back again.

Great food and service
Even though we arrived two hours early for our reservation.. they made us welcome. The food and service were great.

I have to say, every second of this meal was outstanding. Service was phenomenal. The staff took it upon themselves to give us the private dining room for our larger party since it was not booked, which gave the night that special touch.
Every one of us were ooing and ahhing over our appetizers and entrees! The drink suggestions were impeccable.
To top it off, they allowed me to bring my own birthday cake and brought plates and forks for us to serve it.
What an awesome, memorable night! My birthday is next week and I am canceling my reservation elsewhere and coming back here!!

Disappointing visit for us
We have been fans and were anxious for our dinner. Turns out the Shrimp Kiss appetizer was the star of the evening. Otherwise the food was average and the service was very, very slow.

My sisters and I took my dad (and the rest of the family) out for a late father's day dinner here after a day of seeing Seattle. The restaurant came highly recommended. I liked the fact that the dress was casual and we could walk in after a day of sightseeing and shopping. The food was amazing and there were no complaints about it. The waitress was nice though she seemed a little friendlier with a smaller table nearby than with our large group. The meals are quite large, so we ended up sharing meals and were very satisfied without that overly stuffed feeling and no leftovers!

The lump crab was excellent.
The lump crab was excellent. The hubby had the filet and it melted inn his mouth. Just don't get dessert. Not worth it. But the food was!

Great Ambience and Quiet Atmosphere
After a busy day shopping a quite restaurant was perfect! My wife and I enjoyed a lovely quiet dinner at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood restaurant in Seattle. The food and service were both excellent and we would highly recommend this restaurant

Best Cheesecake Ever!
I enjoyed the buttermilk fried shrimp for dinner and decided to splurge on dessert. Their cheesecake was the best I've EVER eaten!! This was my favorite meal while visiting Seattle. I plan to visit McCormick and Schmick's in other towns I travel to now.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were pleased to be seated earlier than our reservation time. The food was very good, the wait staff attentive but not hovering.

We had a great anniversary experience, and would do it again.

Elegant Atmoshphere and Great Food
We had a table for 6 at 7:00pm. My family was celebrating two 60th Birthdays. We arrived on time and they had our table ready for us. Our waiter was pleasant and attentive. The wine we selected was good. Everyone had ordered seafood and it was delicious! The atmosphere was very nice with dark cherry wood walls, tableclothes and just right lighting. We all ordered desert and it couldn't have been better. We will definitely recommend this restaurant.

Thanks for a delicious meal and a relaxing evening out in Seattle.

My cousin Jon Duggan took us for dinner. They are from Edmonton Canada we are from Los Angels and Sacramento. California. Your restaurant in Seattle was highly recommended and it was more than we expected. The food was excellent and the people who work there gave us up and beyond polite and courteous service. We will try your restaurants again and again.

Always a great venue for a team dinner or celebration event!

My former boss and I had a reunion lunch at McCormick's. We picked this place for our reunion because it is pretty reliable in terms of quality and service, and we were not disappointed. We just had a lunch entrée without cocktails so nothing much to report. I had the Caesar salad with calamari and was surprised by the quantity of calarmari that they served. All well prepared with excellent attentive, but not obtrusive, service.
10/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
My wife and I had a wonderful lunch. Made to feel welcomed from the moment we walked in. The waiter was attentive without overdoing it and the food was delicious. We will definitely return in the future.

Yummy PNW seafood!
I love this place. The seafood selection is excellent. The crab is delicious, and the sole you get (one of my favorites) is a always a huge piece of fish, and prepared just right. My friend likes their oysters, not one of my favorites, but he tells me they are very fresh and tasty. Yesterday we both had the crab and corn chowder to start, pure heaven. I prefer the 1st Avenue location in downtown Seattle rather than their 4th avenue spot. Better vibes I think. If you like seafood, don't miss this spot when in Seattle.

I planned the evening, making a reservation weeks in advance to celebrate my husband's military service. The service from our water seriously lacked. We sat for about 5 min. before he ran by & slapped cocktail napkins down on the table & said he'd be back. Another 5-7 minutes & he finally returned. No real greeting or explanation of any specials - which there were several food selections for Veterans' Day & wine specials, I believe to be offered on Sundays, but I'm still unclear since he never explained. The food was delicious, but the service marred the evening. Hint: if you're offering a special menu to our US Military, who definitely deserve it (thank you for doing it), train servers to properly present it & maybe even say, thank you!

Veteran's Day Appreciation Dinner
This visit with my mom and I was the second year, we had the privelege of visiting McCormick & Schmick's Seafood (1st & Spring). The 'Open Table allows us to reserve a nice seating for what is a very important celebration. It's not only Veteran's Day, it's my B.Day, and my mom's is 14 Nov. I couldn't possibly ask for more from anyplace than what they so graciously provide for us Veteran's. This is one of those specific gestures by someone "McCormick & Schmick's" that helps to bring Veterans home. I'm a WA native, and have been familiar with Seattle since the age of 4. McCormick & Schmick's does a beautiful job ! Thank you for honoring those who served Our Country..without you the day would be a little less of an occassion. much Thanks, jw

1st time visit
I took my wife there for her birthday, there wasn't awhile lot of people there, which was nice. The food was amazing!

Nice Night Out
The food was very good and the service was wonderful. We were able to linger and chat after our meal without feeling rushed to leave. The only negative was that the music was a bit loud and lively for our taste - we would have preferred a softer, more classical selection.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
I was concerned about food quality and service level considering the restaurant was packed all day due to the holiday, but all 6 of us enjoyed our meal, absolutely everything! I could have been more pleased.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had thanksgiving here and the food was great. The booths don't give you much room though. Service was outstanding, servers knew the menu and the tall help each other here

Thanksgiving @McCormick & Schmick's
The food was wonderful, especially the turkey which was perfectly done. The service was great, too. The ambiance is nice. The place was crowded but not too noisy. We had a booth seat and the subdued lighting was perfect. I have been here more than once, and I always have a great experience.

Busy but good food
We had a fairly large group and I think the waiter was a bit overwhelmed with our table and the others he served but he handled reasonably well. The other patrons in the restaurant were friendly and did not seemed to mind that we had a 2 and a 5 year old, mind you they were well contained and despite being there for almost 3 hours the two children were well behaved. Food was pretty good and brought timely and everything seemed to come at a reasonable pace. I would recommend this place for a casual dining experience. The 18% automatic service charge was a bit of a surprise but I guess it is standard for larger groups.
