Great service, great place to go. I ordered the cedar plank salmon, it was a little over cooked, but ok on that front. The meal actually had very little spice and required salt and pepper for flavor. Kids ordered fish and chips and those were really good. Ordered Calamari app and did not read the fine print and my kid ate a tempura jalapeño. It was a surprise. Overall a good experience.

Ok, so we love the harbor side and have been to M&S many times. Had two shrimp dishes in the bar. Neither looked appealing-no artistic presentation at all. Popcorn shrimp was fine. The large chilled shrimp, meh! I ended up spitting out several bites that were actually gooey! I’m always excited to try a new drink & unless I get a straight up drink or a beer, I’m always disappointed. The drinks were so watered down they gave new meaning to “we’ll drink”! I’ll stick to beers here but most likely will return sometime.

I have had dinner at this restaurant for many years around this time of the year. We take important customers for dinner, so the meals are important. The food was very good, as normal. Not only the presentation, but the taste. There is a nice river view if that is important to you. I have eaten at several McCormack & Schmidts, and I know I can depend on a high quality meal.

Food seemed to be a little slow coming out between courses. Wait staff was good. Food was very nice. Shrimp on one of main courses was over cooked. Complementary desserts for twin daughters was nice. Good wine special was nice!

My wife and I were at your restaurant on New Year's Eve. We made our reservation for 10 PM, as our theatre tickets were for 8 PM. We usually eat at Jake's or the University Club, but since both are so open and noisy, our friends suggested the more cozy and quiet atmosphere of Harborside as both my wife and I are over 65 years old and are oftentimes not able to hear each other. We couldn't have been more impressed. The dining arrangements are very conducive to intimidate conversation. The staff at your establishment - from the hostess who seated us, to the waiter and busboys who served us, were outstanding. Harborside is a quiet, cozy, and wonderful place. Special shout-out to our waiter, Austin, who made the whole experience special and memorable - what a wonderful young man! Thank you so much for our wonderful New Year's Eve experience at Harborside! This was a New Year's Eve to remember. Brian and Deborah Schwab.

A great spot to end the yr on a cold, clear night with the marina boats--some with Xmas lights.Server Karen in the bar is the best & enjoyed a great bottle of champagne with dinner.You might ask what is fresh as I thought stuffed salmon was a little fishy.

We made a reservation for dinner and were seated in the bar. I was really disappointed becasue I made the reservation for a special Christmas dinner. Our server repeatedly assumed we were there for just drinks and we repeatedly had trouble getting any order for food in or service when we needed something. I was very disappointed. I don't often go out for a $200 meal and am sad I chose the restaurant.

I expected much better. Good was just ok. The crab tower was small and seemed like canned crab. Service was horrible. Base on this experience, I'm not sure I will go to a McCormick & Schmick's again.

Had an absolutely wonderful experience that was tainted by the fact my expensive lobster tails were over cooked. I have had better lobster at a lesser quality restaurant, so I was really disappointed. But we all LOVED LOVED LOVED the shrimp kisses and the dessert. The wait staff was superb and very attentive!

My 91yo mother and I went here for Christmas Day midday dinner, which was marvelous. Getting in with a wheelchair was tricky, but everyone was very helpful. The lobster bisque and the seared scallops were fabulous and our dinner for two (we did share the entree) with 2 glasses of wine was less than $80....a true value experience.

Service was slow and poor. Green beans on entrees were old and tough.

Chocolate silk cake was very poor quality...hard and maybe even stale...certainly not silk.

Disappointing for a location I visit frequently. Probably move to another place for dinner.
