Not my normal visit to this location. I always have a seat in the main restaurant where noise level is low. This visit I was placed in what I would suspect is a banquet area that had stairs leading down to the bar. I can say that because it appeared that our servers were confused on who had what table....waited a good 10 minutes to be served after we were seated.

I have been here before and it’s always been a great visit.

This trip to Harborside was a bit disappointing. The appetizers and main were good, but the timing was pretty bad and felt rushed at times. For example, we were done our appetizer before the wine even showed up. The desert wasn't great - we had the creme brule and it was very soft without much crust. Not nearly as good as we've had there before. So overall, it was Ok, but for the price, I expect a bit more. We've definitely had better evenings there, so maybe it was just a slightly off day, but it doesn't encourage us to bother going back given all the other choices downtown.

This was our Valentines dinner. Our server was very attentive, food was excellent and the view was everything we could ask for. It was a great night.

Food and service was exceptional however the cocktails left a lot to be desired! Perhaps the bartender had a date as it was Valentines Day. Overall was still a great experience and will certainly return again.

We love McCormick and Schmick's. We've created great memories there and celebrate a lot of special occasions. Valentine's of 2020 was the first time we were seated in the back room which was less then amazing. The atmosphere was not at all romantic. We couldnt even hear each other over the noise. Luckily when we asked to be moved, you guys made it happen pretty quick. The rest of the night was everything we expected from your facility. Spectacular!

Went there for Valentines Day. Great food and wine. It was quite noisy and the music gad a heavy beat so it added to the noise level. But, great service and good experience.

Walking in was a little confusing if coming through the bar and you have a reservation for dining. Staff was very accommodating and they kept up with the free bread which was nice. Hopefully you look up the menu prior but the "stuffed" shrimp was really just warm creamy crab scoop on top of a butterflyed shrimp, not really impressed with that but the green beans were fresh and cooked well. The dessert chocolate bag was fun they offer to crack it open but I suggest doing it yourself, try to get a window seat!

Always good food and excellent service with attentive wait staff who congenially solved a misunderstood Landry promotion. A nice evening.

A great restaurant at a great location on the waterfront. A must-visit if you're a fan of seafood, as they have a broad menu with interesting dishes that we have not seen elsewhere.

We had a very nice dinner. The food was delicious and nicely presented. The only complaint we had was that the waiter never came and refilled our water glasses. He was great other than that.

I was really excited to be there and I knew before I went that food is on the pricey side But I was surprised to see the quantity. We ordered 4 entres 3 appetizers for 4 people .. and all of us left hungry.. that small the amount was.
But ambience was nice customer service was just ok.. I think you pay for the view and ambience there.. not food. Taste was okay not worth 250 dollars for sure. Oysters were awesome so as coconut shrimps.. salmon and seabass and rockfish meh..

The staff, food and ambiance all make M&S a place we recommend you visit. We mentioned seafood allergies when ordering our meals. The wait staff communicated that to the chef. Our meals were prepared with care not to expose us to our allergens. Professional staff throughout the entire restaurant.

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!

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...
