McCormick & Schmick's Harborside - Portland
Book your next event with us
From the front desk to the host to the servers, everyone was amazing! Views were lovely with boats along the riverside. Ambiance was great as we were dining with young kids and the place was spacious enough that other patrons were not bothered by our kids chattering. Their kids menu was fantastic with healthy options such as fish was available.
Portland Dining Month, excellent menu
We partook of the Portland Dining Month menu. The food was very good. We had the horseradish steelhead (very good, great sauce!) and the crab gnocchi (pretty good, nice sauce, not much crab). The Burrata Salad App was good, but not the best. The desserts, chocolate cake and apple something were both very good. All in all we enjoyed the evening.
Always a joy to dine at Harborside. Great food, amazing servers, awesome place for a date night looking out at the water.
Terrific view of the traffic on the water, runners, walkers and bikers going by along the river walk.
Wonderful staff and food preparation. We enjoyed the blackened octopus and coconut shrimp along
with two paired glasses of wine. Excellent afternoon!
We were very pleased with our dinner which was a birthday celebration. The food was delicious and courses were delivered appropriately timewise. Our server was efficient, pleasant, but not phony. Every aspect of our experience exceeded our expectations.
I would recommend. But it's not worth the drive and headache of parking for slow and over priced meal.
We had an excellant server and delicious meal!
Best Meal I have had at a restaurant in a long time. They did not seem to want to promote the $33 Portland monthly dining menu. We had to ask for the menu.
The food was Delicious! Our waiter Colton was extremely professional & catered to our every need.
It was a very enjoyable experience and we will be sure to visit again in the near future!
Great food. Had to wait for a table even though we had reservations
Our 3rd time and we will come again.
The food is good as usual. The bread especially YUMMO!!! And the Marina location, my date and I truly like the River scenery!
The view was awesome we were right in front of windows overlooking the river, food was very good and the waitress was super nice.
Scott the manager is great. Server was attentive and discreet
Overall its so great and best
M&S is our special occasion restaurant! The Staff are friendly and knowledgeable!
The rating would have been higher all 5 stars if it weren't for the appearance of some kind of bug in the fresh oysters - it was a very strange - the waiter was quite surprised. It might be something that you should look into - how does a bug get into an oyster serving on ice?
We took our granddaughter there as part of her 9th birthday celebration. When I made the reservation I asked the person who took the call if he would recommend a nice place to sit since we had forgotten the layout of the restaurant. It was perfect!
Wife and I really enjoyed eating there for her birthday.
It's a good restaurant with great service but the portions are just too small and expensive. We spent $240 for 3 people and was barely enough to satisfy our hunger.
The atmosphere was wonderful the table had a wonderful view of the harbor our waiter Benjamin was very good, it seems as though he had an high volume of tables to service, and he handled it well, there was a noticeble lasp between courses. he always retured to the table with a smile and made us feel welcome. We enjoyed being there and will return.
The food was awesome location was beautiful staff was great overall had a wound experience
I felt the quality and taste of food was the only thing making this an okay experience. Everything else was great!
We went for dining month. The food and portions were outstanding! Steak tartar, salmon and molten chocolate cake... All for $33! Our server was also outstanding!
We loved our dinner here! Our table was wonderful for both a river view and quietness, as we had lots of dinner talk.
Great waitress. Great food. We happened to be there on a half-price wine night so even better. Great location.
Lovely dinner with friends, everything was spot on. Thank you
Dinner with Daughters and Granddaughter after Show!
An absolutely perfect experience. Everything from the service and the food to the ambiance and the setting was just beautiful.
Great server Happy waiter seemed to genuinely care about us!
We often go to this location. On Sunday we ate between the brunch and dinner crowd so we had pretty close to a private dining area. Our service person was wonderful and should be commended for her great service!
The New England Clam chowder had to much thickening and needed more flavor as it very bland. The scallops were excellent, the King salmon and stuffed salmon were both excellent! Good service. I would go again.
Food, service and ambiance were great. We easily made our 7:30pm curtain at close by Keller Auditorium with course and entrée recommendations made by our server. The window table seating offers, of course, a spectacular view of the river.
Nice time with my daughters before a show. Attentive wait staff.
We loved our server, but the food is decidedly average. I just don't think it's worth the money.
We had a fantastic date night, great atmosphere and terrific food. thank you very much.
This was a very nice restaurant I just thought it was a bit overpriced for the food you got.
Great food, great drinks, perfect service, and a fantastic view. My boyfriend ordered the surf and turf and I enjoyed the seafood trio. The portions were good size and the flavors were rich. We can't wait to go back again! Thank you for the excellent date night.
Let me start by saying that there are not many places to dine before a show at the Keller Auditorium. So it was a busy night, and we have to cut them some slack because of the full house. But I would expect that they would be practiced and efficient for busy times. Plus our reservation was a good two hours before the performance, so plenty of time to get things right. The food was really good, and it always is. But the timing was off. Salads were served before appetizers. The server apologized, but blamed it on another server who was new (not professional!). Entrees were delivered before salads/appetizers had been cleared from the table. We ordered a bottle of wine with dinner, but it didn't arrive until we were actually done eating. We kind of groused about it, and we were told that the manager has to retrieve the wine (??) and that's what created the delay. Can't you delegate that out? So we had wine for dessert. Overall, the evening was fine, but some of the loose ends could be tidied up to increase it from "fine" to "great".
Food was ok...
We ordered the Seafood Trio (crab stuffed shrimp, grilled shrimp, and grilled salmon, with mashed potatoes and green beans). It was absolutely delicious. We were celebrating Valentine’s Day, and found the view of the marina romantic and beautiful. The service was also outstanding.
