I really enjoyed having a brithday lunch for a coworker there. They gave us our own little booth! We were able to call ahead to place the order, so when we go there the food onlu took a few minutes to come.

Sippy sip reunion
I hadnt seen my cousin in over 6 years. We caught up and I decided tht M&S was the perfect place. Happy hour
Prices are very reasonanable and I like the mix of business folks. You can unwind without too much drama. And the shrimp and grits are the bomb.com! Love them.

air conditioning was down, nothing said by manager to inform us; only the staff, which were attentive
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Vinnie was our server and he was fantastic. Great sense of humor and very attentive. When one of our party wanted his steak cooked a special way, Vinnie talked to the Chef who cooked it himself.
It was a very enjoyable evening.

Great food and atmosphere. I would definitely eat here again.

My first time to a McCormick
My first time to a McCormick and Schmick's. Waiter was very attentive with a great personality, but the bar and kitchen let him down at times - took forever to get our drinks and two of our dishes had cold mashed potatoes when they hit our table - but he had a great sense of urgency and beat up the cooks until they got it right. Otherwise the food was well-prepared and well-paced. Would come here again the next time I'm in DC.

Excellent For the picky eater
My husband and I were in DC for a week and ate there everyday! I am a very picky eater and the menu was great. There was a lot to choose from and every choice was great. The service was warm and friendly. It was really a great experience! I recommend to everyone who takes their eating serious.

My company's banking rep was moving on, and I took her to lunch to thank her for all her help. I chose McCormick & Schmick's because it has never let me down, whether it's been for a business lunch or a special dinner.

We had a group of 8 to celebrate a graduation from grad school. Everything from the champagne and appetizers to the dessert and coffee was great. We felt like we had a separate room. Thanks for an awesome and delicious experience.

good food, slowwww service
We sat outside which was great. it was restaurant week. I strayed from that menu and had the fried shrimp and fries which was very good. light batter, crunchy and hot. my lunch companion had the steak and shrimp from the restaurant menu. she thought the steak was bland. we both enjoyed the apple dessert. The service was incredibly slow. we got there at 11.45 and didn't get the check until 1.30. had to seek out the server twice. too bad.

Restaurant Week Summer 2013
It was a very good lunch. We had the steak and shrimp. My only complaint was that the steak was burnt on the outside. It was crusty with a burnt taste. Everything else was great! The grilled shrimp were very good. The Zinfandel and Moscato wines were wonderful! The service was excellent! Can't wait until my next visit.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went during restaurant week
Went during restaurant week for 1st time. The choices were great. The steak medallions were cooked just right. The rock fish was flakey and delicious. The wine selection was complete and enjoyable. The server was courteous, but not very friendly; and only came back after each course. We enjoyed the ambience and the street view. Highly recommend the crème brulee.

Great food - Does AC work?
I have eaten here before. The food and service are consistently excellent. All the food is freash not frozen, and well prepared. The blus crab dip was particulrly good, and the crab cakes are some of the best I've found in the greater DC area.
My only complaint was the temperature. I don't know if they were trying to save on their elecric bill, but the air conditioning did not appear to be working. By the end of the meal my friend and I could not get out of there fast enough in order to cool off outside. It had to be at least 80 F in the restaurant.
Bottom line - Great meal and service.

Do we need the music?
This restaurant did fine for decades without the canned muzak. Get rid of it and go back to being a classy place.

This experience was absolutely amazing! From the food to the attentive waiter. The service overall is untouchable.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the Caesar salad, 8oz filet mignon and warm chocolate cake - all standard fare and all were very good. Good service and everything came in a timely manner.

Excellent Restaurant! Five Star service! Online reservations through Open Table is the only way to Go!

I first encountered M&S in Seattle, great seafood. There are few places that do seafood well, M&S is one of them. The crab stuffed shrimp are marvelous. Service is civil without fawning. Martini was great! And SO close to two Metro stops so I can meet friends from anywhere in the city.

M&S on K Street (Wash DC)
M&S on K Street (Wash DC) hasn't missed a step even with all the agitation inside the Beltway. A wonderful place for a quiet dinner, a meeting or a get-together with friends. Menu is interesting and varied. Excellent wine list. Gifted bartenders. We'll be back -- often.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is both a blessing and a curse to dine at a chain. Blessing: you know what to expect and you get it. The curse is the same: rarely a flare that distinguishes. We enjoyed good to very good salad, almond crusted trout and tempura shrimp. Drinks were generous. The prices high but typical of downtown DC.

A Special Evening
Table for 4 (2 couples) had a great dining experience! Vinni was superb and set the tone for a special anniversary evening. He was extremity helpful with suggestions and had no problem suggesting the very best McCormick & Schmick had to offer. Sit back, relax, and tell Vinni what your interested in and let him surprise you with a great dining experience! Thanks for a wonderful evening!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Your dessert menu needs some work. The main courses were all absolutely delicious. Hot chocolate cake was a joke. My six year old niece would have rejected the size of the cake that was actually meant for two to share.

As we walked in, we were greeted right away and the service just got better and better. The food was delicious and the wait time for our food was not bad at all. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone, whether they want steaks or seafood.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall, lunch was fine. I've noticed menu changes apparently designed to cut costs. For example, substituting green beans for asparagus. The special touches McCormick & Schmick have been known for have diminished. That said, overall, the meal was appetizing and the ambience was good. The service was excellent; we had an attentive, helpful server.

I was surprised when I went
I was surprised when I went to make a reservation that Open Table was being used. The entire process was so easy and user-friendly. When I and my party arrived at the restaurant, a cubby had been reserved for us which was perfect! The meals were divine -- I usually always take something home, but this meal was just too good! And our server, Adrienna, was very attentive and helpful with menu choices.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
After a business meeting, our group ate here. We had a wonderful table for 8 that was secluded. Although the restaurant was loud, we did feel like we had our "own space." Great wine list, fun cocktails, and the food/service was very good.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
McCormick and Schmick's on K Street, NW, downtown DC, has always been an excellent place for both lunch and dinner. I've been enjoying its food and excellent service for years now, and it's still to be highly recommended. The wide variety of fresh fish, the clam chowder, and lovely salads are all delicious. The bar is also a very busy and fun experience, with Happy Hour and late evening specials. Enjoy!

Great meal and thank you for celebrating Veterans!

Thanks for the pleasant enviornment, recognition, and treatment the restaurant gave me and my family. Everything was great and we had a fabulous time.

For the past several years we have marked the Veterans Day holiday with follow former military. Each time we have been served amazing food and received attentive service. We appreciate the McCormick and Schmicks offers a special gourmet menu for veterans and take the opportunity to honor them with a fine dining experience

My dining companion and I
My dining companion and I both very much enjoyed the salmon stuffed with crab and brie - it was fabulous! It did seem unusual however that 43 minutes elapsed between the time our delicious soups (appetizers) were cleared and our entries arrived. And somewhat disappointing that our server did not stop by even once during this timeframe to offer any explanation, or even to acknowledge the delay.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hostess very friendly and sociable; makes an excellent first impression. Wonderful appetizer and chef accommodating for a slight substitution in the menu item. Excellent wine choices. Waiter was friendly and helpful, although a bit new and tentative. This was our best dinner for the entire stay in DC. Fabulous food and so convenient to the Capital Hilton!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Overall excellent place. Meal
Overall excellent place. Meal was not as piping hot as I would have liked but it was delicous. I would have had them take it back band they would have but it was Thanksgiving Day, so I was just thankful that I was able to eat a delicious meal in a nice place without going broke.

Romantic birthday dinner
I took my good lady to McCormick & Schmick's for her birthday. On the reservation I asked for a quiet area and we were offered one of the curtained booths or one of the private rooms! My partner was very impressed with the whole experience, especially the selection of seafood and the extensive wine list! My baked cod was very good but a smaller plate than I was expecting. My partner had the blackened rockfish which comes highly recommended! All in all, a perfect place to take your significant other for a romantic evening meal.

Good Food; Excellent Service
This was a great place for an unhurried celebratory lunch for the office staff. The restaurant was quiet so we were able to do quite a lot of brainstorming. The service was generally good.
12/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
I feel like I can never fail on our Christmas lunch when I make our reservation at McCormick. From appetizers to the main meal and dessert, everything is so good. Always a pleasant experience. The service is awesome. If you have a small group (no more than 6), I recommend the snug. It gives you just enough privacy and is very cozy.
12/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wait staff was awesome
I had a previous bad experience at at McCormicks restaurant and really didn't want to return. After eating at this particular location, I am a customer again. Our server had a great personality and was very attentive to our needs. The food was wonderful!

THE M&S OF THE DMV
OVER THE YEARS I HAVE TRIED MANY M&S'S FROM DC TO PHILLY AND I HAVE TO SAY HANDS DOWN THE K STREET M&S IN DC IS BY FAR THE BEST THE STAFF RAISE THE BAR, THE FOOD MEETS YOUR EXPECTATIONS AND THEY TAKE SERVING THE CLIENT VERY SERIOUS. THEY SHOULD BE KNOWN AS THE FLAGSHIP M&S.
