    This place was very busy....... Everybody was very nice, especially the hostesses. We had made a last minute request for a booth because it was our 25th wedding anniversary, and she made it happen. She also kept us informed where we were on the seating list.(we arrived 45 miutes early) The music was a bit annoying tho. All we could hear was some fast drum beat in the background.

    THANK YOU for putting "Happy Birthday for David's 51st" on our menus. We didn't even notice it at first when we sat down and then I said "David.....look at our menus..." He was so tickled. He just lost his wife to breast cancer last spring and then his sister a month ago to a brain tumor and he's not had occasion to either celebrate or enjoy his birthday in a long time. You guys made it special in so many ways. THANK YOU! Laure Jausoro

    The ambiance was very nice because we were seated in a private table with curtains. I especially appreciated that the requests I had entered through Open Table were honored by McCormick and Scmick's. The overall experience of making a reservation was made simple and easy through your service. Thank you.

    We were very happy. I sent back my steak because it was too rare for me, only because I am pregnant. (I usually expect restaurants to overcook their medium so I ask for medium rare). It came back better than before, in under 5 minutes. Our server was very understanding and friendly and everyone was patient with my daughter. We will definately be back and will recommend the place to others. This replaces the Brooklyn as out "Nice night out" place.

    This was a wedding anniversary dinner with our two sons. Both my wife's and my entrees came out luke warm at best. While our dishes were "remade" in the kitchen our sons finished their meals and my wife and I waited and waited... All signs to me of a mass market restaurant and it "only" cost $230.00 for the mediocre experience.

    I have dined at this location many times and have had better food. The meal that we selected with our server was acceptable. However, they would not honor a a coupon for $10 odd for the meal that was provided by their management. That is unfortunate, because I have a lot of people that I've recommended try this location. I would only return, if my son wanted to go there again.

    The food was very good but they were not as flexible with the menu as they have been in the past (i.e., having a fish dish prepared a little differently than on the menu). Although it was Easter they were not very busy at the time. Otherwise the experience was very good.

    It was a very nice experience overall. Only small complaint, we were left alone for 15 minutes before our waiter realized we were in the small private room, and waiting to order a drink before ordering our meals. Perhaps the curtain should have been left open a bit so someone could see we were waiting. Food and drinks were well presented. We will return again.

    We enjoyed our experience at McCormick & Schmicks's Seafood in Bellevue. We have previously been to Jakes Crawfish, downtown Portland and found it to be better as far as the quality of food. The calimari appetizer at Jake's Crawfish is unbelievable but the same dish at McCormick & Schmicks in Bellevue was quite different - not so much flavour, chewy and more breaded. I would rate our main course as about a 7 out of 10. We were also offered a complimentary dessert (which was a flourless chocolate cake, very delicious) from the chef because one of us found something foreign in the cabbage salad. Overall we were impressed with the service at McCormick's in Bellevue and would more than likely to return.

    We think the food, drinks and service are a good value for a 'nicer' dining experience. It would be nice if they could switch up their menu just a wee bit. Again, a good value compared to the still yummy Ruth's Chris across the street.The children's veggies sticks w/ ranch are always served on warm plates...a big turn off for kids. All in all, the seafood and Pacific NW ambiance are a favorite of ours and we'll be coming back as usual.When the economy gets better, we'll be more likely to eat out more!!

    I received horrendous service on my birthday of all days. I always went to the MS in Seattle but my experience at the Bellevue location was beyond bad adjectives. My night went from a server lacking multitasking skills to cold, oil-separated, food, to a crusty dessert that tasted like it had been sitting around for hours. I will not be coming back here anytime soon.

    If you are looking for a place for a special occation this is it. For our annaversery they printed Happy annaversery with our names right on the menu. I had flowers delivered which the resturant placed on the table before we sat down. They put us in a very private seating for 2. The staff is very freindly and helpful in choosing wine with your meal. Great place.
