The bok choy vegi was uneatable because of the sand or earth that wasn’t cleaned from it. I cut it open and left it exposed if anyone wanted to see.
It was our anniversary and I didn’t want to say things weren’t ok.

The service was poor at our visit. The waiter was MIA almost the whole time. They never once refilled our drinks, asked if we needed anything. There was a problem with my husbands order and after waiting several minutes we had to stop someone to let them know. Still the waiter did not come over. For this price point of restaurant, it was pretty unacceptable.

our only problem, dogs everywhere. my wife is very allergic to dogs. they had a wonderful table reserved for us, overlooking the waterfront outdoors. as we went to sit, a large hairy sheepdog on a 18 ft lease comes from another table and climbs on my wife’s chair. I turn around and a bulldog takes a dump at other table. luckily my wife hadn’t come to table yet.

the host said all he could do was put us inside because the dogs were here first.

i told him, i’m from Philly. we like humans more then dogs.

They made sure our Anniversary dinner was perfect! The food, drinks and service were all fantastic. I have a dairy allergy and the chef was great about it which I appreciate so much! We’ll definitely be back.

I own a business and have visitors here from all over the world. Everyone wants fresh Northwest seafood, so I always take them to McComick's. We had a colleague and his family visiting from Brazil last week, and took them there on Friday night. The restaurant was very busy, but our service was excellent. The food was fabulous. Several of us had the Seafood Trio. I have been coming to M&S for 30 years, since it was still downtown, and the food was better than ever. Consistency is the key to having a successful restaurant, and that is what M&S delivers.

Lovely summer evening. We enjoyed the outside seating along the waterfront. Urban setting with bikers and walkers strolling through. Such a nice meal with excellent service.

The view was beautiful but we had some problems. The service was pretty slow, the strawberry sangria tasted like a watered down soda (both my friend and I sent it back). I had dietary issues and though my server was sweet and accommodating, brought me the wrong side and that had to be sent back as well. Also the amount of food I got was pretty small for the prices on the fresh fish. We enjoyed sitting by the water but I was underwhelmed with the other aspects.

We had an outdoor dinner with a perfect setting near the river. The food was exceptional and paid with a beautiful wine, it couldn't be any better!

My out-of-Country guests were delighted with my choice of restaurants, thank you!
And I will be back in two weeks with a larger group that was probably put under the last name of PISCITELLO. I am certain we will receive the same excellent service. Thank you so much!

Great food. The stuffed shrimp was outstanding and the filet could not have been more tender. Eating outside you need to be okay with passers by, but is was a beautiful evening with a great view of the marina

Really liked the location. Food just ok for the prices. Service just mediocre. Didn’t refill water, got order wrong and then didn’t provide bread as other tables received complementary .

The service team was a little surly about letting us sit outside. The waiter was very patient and thorough. Inside seating scenario not comfortable for a party of six. My favorite thing about this restaurant is the outside seating on a very warm day.

You are paying for the location. The food is good, but not exceptional. For the price, it should be better. But the service was excellent and the restaurant has perhaps the best waterfront location in Portland. If ambience matters more than food to you, it's a good choice.

We had a lovely time. The only thing that would have made it absolutely perfect is our green beans were cooked rather poorly, but everything else was phenomenal. We got the Filet & Stuffed Shrimp, the Steelhead, the King Crab Scampi, and the Seafood Trio with Stuffed Shrimp, Salmon and Grilled Shrimp, and would recommend any of it.

Lunch or dinner on the patio is a special treat this time of year. The food is well prepared and the people watching is top notch. I do have a request of management. Consider, even better, adopt the practice of offering half portions of dishes like the salmon rigatoni. It is delicious but well beyond ample. This would be much appreciated by many of us senior folk who grew up with a "finish your dinner" rule, but who really don't need the extra calories. ( Taking home part of a fish based dish is not appealing.
