Horrible. Poor service, less than subpar food. In all fairness, COVID has likely had its way here, but they could be doing so much better than what happened last nigh

We had such a wonderful dinner at the Harborside McCormick! The Shrimp Scampi was the best I’ve ever had. My husband had a steak that he said was perfect. Our server was wonderful too.

We enjoy our dinner evenings out to be on the quieter side. No loud music overshadowing our table conversation. After a disappointing meal at another restaurant the prior evening, we decided on a "do over" at M&S. We appreciated the spacious seating between guests and the more moderate sounding music playing in the background. The food was wonderful and I got my "steak fix" that I had been craving.

McCormick and Schmick is a wonderful place for a casual lunch. The wai staff is very attentive to every detail and we felt very comfortable at all times. The view is beautiful from the lounge area which is where we were seated. But the highlight is their great food. Delicious and expertly prepared. They also have an extensive wine and drink list to select from. I highly recommend a meal here.

Had a lovely lunch at Harborside today. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. It was very quiet there today as not many people in the area. Lots of room for social distancing and we felt very safe. Want to keep this long-time Portland establishment in business, so please venture out and support them.

Servers were handing unwrapped straws over without using napkins or gloves which was a little alarming during these times but service other than that was good. Food was ok, the only standouts were the clam chowder and grilled bread.

I have dined here many times and as always, the food and atmosphere were outstanding. My only glitch this time was trying to navigate it with my elderly mother. I had thought there was handicapped street parking nearby, but I found none. We had to use the lot a half block away that is mentioned on the restaurant as having validated parking. Per parking lot rules, I left the receipt on the dash. When I showed the server a photo of the receipt, he said I had failed to follow some sort of procedure to be reimbursed for a fraction of the $8 parking fee. I was sorry I even brought it up, as he brought the manager and they acted like I was being too fussy. At this point I no longer cared, but the server made sure to slow-walk the transaction so it took an eternity to get my tired mother on her way. A disappointing end to an otherwise fine meal.
I'll still come here, but not with mom.

McCormick and Schmicks Harborside restaurant is a wonderful place to dine rain or shine. Good food and service. The terraced seating of the restaurant give you great views of the marina and river. Perfect outdoor seating on a nice day. Our server was superb. Be back soon for happy hour.

Server was great - nice wine pairing

Minimal seafood in the chioppino mostly fettuccini noodles

Clam chowder was great

Don't get the 9pm reservation during covid. They rushed us thru our meal and started taking down all the outdoor tables even before they closed making a huge amount of noise. The food was good at least though, and the location was pretty cool. I'll skip this place next time and go to a local seafood spot like cabazeon, much better service, the food is great, and they won't rush you out the door.

I love eating outside here in nice weather - watching the boats in the harbor makes it so enjoyable. The crab and shrimp cakes are so good - that's what I always have. My friend had lobster bisque in addition to the crab/shrimp cakes. The tables outside are placed far apart, so good for social distancing. On a previous visit I had the chocolate silk pie - it is to die for!!

The food was very disappointing. It was uninspired and bland. The service was fair but when we ordered tonic we got club soda. Then when we changed our drink and ordered something else we were still charged fo rte tonic. For a restaurant in a primmer Portland location we would hav expected much better.

I had the two main lobster tails which were quite good, the green beans that came with them weren’t cleaned properly there were some stems in the end still attached. Also our service was good, but the server routinely had his mask below his nose when at the table.

The host was rude to my wife. The server was over-worked, managing too many tables. Their attitude was curt and brusque, like it was an inconvenience for us to be there.
Their scotch selection was poor— they did not have several well-known brands, their wine selection was limited and more over-priced than similar restaurants.
My medium-rare ribeye steak was cooked medium-well. When I mentioned it, the server argued with me.
The fish was also over-cooked and dry. Again the server argued with us about this. The fish was served very plainly, looked like something Red Robin would put together from the freezer.

The server did arrange for our steak and appetizer to be comped. We appreciated this tremendously.

Overall the experience was incredibly disappointing for us. We had looked forward for weeks to celebrating several big life milestones. I do not think we will return.

Amazing place to eat! Went for our anniversary, I had the best steak I’ve ever had by far. My boyfriend had the lobster tails and just wish it came with more. Highly suggest the “Shrimp kisses” as an appetizer; bacon wrapped shrimp to die for! Pricey but worth it for a special night.

Everything about the experience surpassed my expectations. I've been to Harborside over the years and have always enjoyed it. Being able to eat inside with the amazing view and feel safe and taken care of was a joy! The wait staff was attentive and we appreciated that they all wore masks. They timed the meal beautifully allowing us to take our time and yet move the meal along with ease. An then food was outstanding! The salmon was sublime as were the scallops. My steak was cooked exactly as I asked. The evening was just perfect! Kudos to the staff!
