I think we over ordered, but the service was very professional and the food was good. I had the parm crusted sole and it was a little over cooked for such a thin fish - but the shrimp kisses and oysters for appetizers and everyone else was very happy with their meals. Our birthday came with comp dessert and our group of four were the last to leave the restaurant, I felt a little bad for the staff waiting for us to go as we were having such a good time!

Excellent food and service. A little pricey, but it was New Year's Eve. Will go back for another special occasion.

We made a reservation early to avoid the crowds on New Years eve. It took a while to get someone to take our drink order and then as soon as we had drinks we ordered food. Our food arrived within about 10 mins like it was already cooked. My husband's food was cold and mine was not worthy of the $30+, no vegetable side and just a small bit of mash potatoes. Server made us feel a bit uncomfortable about sending cold food back and when we didn't order starters or dessert.

Amazing views and was quickly seated as we made reservations. For semi fine dining, server didn’t seem to have much experience with fine dining. Cork was completely unscrewed wrong and wine recommendations were very off.

Food- ok but not perfect. Oyster tray was filled with water. Would I eat again? Yes for food

Service was a little awkward. Many reviews have said the same.

Beautiful location and view. Nice on holiday (Christmas) when neighborhood is quieter and parking is easier. Service is great. Less happy with unprepublished limited holiday menu and high prices.

Long a favorite in another part of the US, this first trip to the Portland location was very satisfying. Built in what I guess is called the Harbor district, the area provides plenty of opportunities for exploration, of which we took great advantage before our reservation. Seating was comfortable with an excellent view of the river. The food was excellent and arrived without delay. Service was also excellent.

We had a great meal on Christmas Eve with a family group of six. Food, service and views were excellent. The only reason I gave an overall 4, instead of 5 was due to my experience with the reservation. My elderly mother originally made the reservation via phone for a group of four. I called to add two more. I was told by a gentleman on the phone that they were full and couldn’t accommodate a change from four to six. I asked (surprised) whether they could add two more chairs to our table. The gentleman said “no”. Had my mother not wished that we have dinner here, @ this point I would have gone elsewhere. Instead I immediately went on open table to reserve @ the same time for our group of six...

Great place for dinner after watching the Christmas Ships or any other Holiday get together with family and friends. Staff is always attentive. The oyster selection is always good but I with the rest of the menu was as good.

Our group of 5 came mostly to see the Xmas ships on their last day, but quickly realized the excellent food, service and view made our 90 minute outing something to remember! We will all be back!

Service was slow. Wanted to add our 3 year old to the table two weeks prior and they refused. So noisy it was difficult to hear people at our table.

Food was subpar. Ordered the salmon pesto rigatoni... wanted to charge me $10 more since they were out of the usual salmon used for that dish. No alternatives given. Just order something else. My husbands steak was flavorless. Staff was not attentive and food didn’t come out as ordered nor as a group. One dish to each person spaced out a good 3-5 min between people. My dish being last since apparently it went to the end of the line since they didn’t have salmon??

We hadn't been to Harborside in a few years and really feel it is just not up to par. We had drinks, appetizers, salads, main course, dessert and wine. Out of all that the prawn appetizer and dessert were the best. The regular Old Fashions were way too sweet and too much ice. Should have been one big ice cube. We had the 2 lobster tails and they were not cooked nearly enough. Your hostess staff was very unfriendly!!!!! The waitress was "good". Disappointed

The tiered restaurant seating provides awesome views of the river and marina. Being the Christmas season, the decorated boats go onto the river at 7PM and provide wonderful entertainment. We had a great meal. Mains were a filet steak and crab/shrimp cakes. Both were perfectly cooked and the steak was extra tender. They have a nice selection of wines by the glass so it was easy to match the two different mains.

This was the most outstanding meal I have had in many, many years. The wait-staff was supurb, really outstanding. They were very friendly, knowledgeable, attentive and clean. The food was so good, no really, it was the best. This was the best food my wife and I have had in, like-forever. If you want the best dining experience come to McCormick & Schmick's.

All four of our meals. 2 seafood, 1 vegetarian and one steak were all excellent. The wait staff gave us enough time between cocktails and our main courses to socialize so we never felt rushed or ignored. Excellent job !!

Too noisy, food wasn’t hot and misrepresented. (I’ve never seen a filet one half inch thick. It also tasted old, possible freezer burned). My wife enjoyed her crab and I enjoyed my bloody Mary’s so all was not lost. For the price I was expecting a lot more classy place.
