Saturday night sleeper.
Food was outstanding! We were worried that we'd be disappointed as the restaurant was near empty at 7 pm on a Saturday night. However, as this restaurant is located in Seattle's downtown Finacial District, apparently this restaurant is busy mid-week but not so much on the weekend. We'll definitely go back!

McCormick's has always been
McCormick's has always been a very reliable place to dine. It can get a bit noisy, but is fine if in a back booth. The fish is always fresh and well prepared, and we enjoy the casual and comfortable environment.

A Perfect Choice
This is a frequent choice to meet clients. The booths are always perfect for my kind of business. The booths offer privacy without being stuffy. The noise level is never intrusive.The entire staff is always friendly and efficient.

Great food and service
Four of us had a staff appreciation lunch at McCormick's and we all loved the food. We also indulged in dessert and the three items we ordered were delicious. Also, the service was excellent and the food arrived pretty quick. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

I booked a reservation for a certain time on Mother's day, and actually ended up arriving 2 hours earlier, and they were very accommodating. The food was delicious, and the place was very nice. We were a little eery at first, because from outside it looked like the lights were very dim, but once you walk in you'll see that it is very well-lit. Our waiter was very friendly, and he was very helpful being that we were first-timers. My only downfall with this place is that the service was slow, it was worth the wait, but at the same time I wish it could have been expedited just a little faster.

If I want to treat someone to a lunch where the service will be spectacular, I always choose McCormicks. They always take great care in their presentation, and the atmosphere is regal without being stuffy. And the lunch prices are very competitive, with a great selection. It would be hard to do better without tripling the cost. Worth the effort.

McCormicks Fish House
Very nice meal. There was four of us and we were seated right away we had reservations. They helped us get a good cab afterwards. The meal was delicious.

Focus is on fish here. Selection
Focus is on fish here. Selection is moderate, but very good, and the presentation is very nice. We had an early dinner here, so can't speak to what happens later on.

Great place to celebrate a birthday
I happen to share a birthday with 2 co-workers and we decided we should go out to lunch to celebrate. When making the reservation on line I happened to note this as being a triple birthday celebration. I was called later in the day and asked if they could personalize a special menu for each of us. This was a great example for going above and beyond in customer service and made for a great surprise for everyone. The lunch was fantastic.

Not a place for a "cheap" lunch--but the food, service and ambience are great. I would term it a perfect place for a business type lunch with way better than average food.

Good value, seasonal food
Not only did I order my favorite Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho but was so pleased with the kind and professional service provided by Johnny. Having a late lunch guarantees calm and quiet in pleasant surroundings.

Celebration of Marriage License
We went to McCormick's for lunch after getting our marriage license. We were greeted warmly with lots of congratulations. They made a personalized menu for us with congratulations and a heart design. We so appreciated the celebratory atmosphere! We ordered the gazpacho and the flatbread from the specials menu. Both were EXCELLENT!
Thanks so much to all of you for a very special and wonderful experience at McCormick's.

Good dining experience. I
Good dining experience. I loved the fresh oysters. I also had the scallops that the waitress recommended. The scallops were served on a potato pancakes with sautéed spinach. The scallops and spinach were good but the potato pancakes had a bitter taste and needed salt. Altogether a good dining experience. It was more expensive than we had expected.

great seafood, excellent service
Saturday nights in August may not be the busiest in this downtown Seattle classic. The food however is excellent; the classics being just this "classic" and not overly loaded with chef creativity. Very personalized service which made it a very pleasant experience altogether.

The original McCormicks -
The original McCormicks - before Schmidt - still quite reliable and tasty. We shared small plates and enjoyed each and every one. Wendy provided a bit of history on the restaurant and the area around the building.

Special Birthday evening
We planned a birthday dinner for our daughter's 21st birthday and our son's 37th birthday, which are a day apart. We had a wonderful time, great food, great service. We will definitely got to McCormick and Schmick again.

We took some clients to lunch to celebrate the successful conclusion of their case. We all enjoyed a very nice meal.

Excellent seafood in every way. Oyster bar great. Good people watching. Not much has changed from 20 years ago. Go there!

This old established downtown restaurant has been a great fish establishment for many years. Great fresh fish menu and wine list.
The quality of the food and service is always of the highest standard.

Raves for Seattle's Fine Dining
My wife and I celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary with dinner at McCormick's Fish House in downtown Seattle. It was a convenient location for walking from our hotel on a nice October day. The food was excellent as was the service. Highly recommend it to our of town visitors.

Nice for our small group
This location was excellent for our small group. We were seated in a nice alcove that was just right for our group. It allowed us to have a private conversation and to get a bit loud without disturbing anyone. The food was tasty and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Excellent as always
McCorkmick’s Fish House in Seattle is one of our oldest and most trusted restaurants. If you are looking for fresh seafood this is the spot. The menu changes twice daily depending upon what seafood is fresh. It is a downtown favorite. Excellent food and service.

Our server was very engaging and very knowledgable about the menu. She was not over the top, but she made sure our drinks were always full and used plates and utensils were removed promptly. Great atmosphere and good food. The plates lacked presentation, but the taste was great.

The only downside is limited parking.

Great find for a last minute group
First time to McCormick's Fish House. I have been to the other locations but never this one. We were a group of 6 trying to find a last minute place to eat on a Saturday night and they came through. Great location, great service and great food. I would recommend this location just as highly as I would any of the other McCormick and Schmicks!
