This location is closed, but still accepts OpenTable reservations. We arrived at the restaurant only to find it locked and inviting us to enjoy their other Seattle location!
Great harbor view, customer service outstanding, food was presented well and tasted great! It was a drive for us, but it was worth the travel time. Thanks for a great birthday celebration!
Getting there by transit was hard -- so much construction along Aurora, Dexter and Westlake meant a lot of walking. But the waiter was really great. It was relatively empty for lunch on a weekday, which meant it was quiet. The food was ok -- sandwich was good, fries were a little soggy. But the atmosphere, the view, and the super-friendly staff compensated.
We chose to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary at McCormick & Schmick's Harborside and it was a great choice. Mid week, personalized menu, attentive service, great wine, fabulous fresh oyster appetizer, lovely dinner, complimentary dessert -- they ensured a perfect evening for us. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for its beautiful harborside atmosphere.
Great service! We went on a quiet night, but it was perfect ambiance for a date night. We sat at the booths which are private and have a lovely view. We love this place, I always order the Chicken parmesan, which is amazing! We save room for the chocolate bag, it's a great dessert to share!
This was our annual joint birthday dinner, another excellent and commendable visit. Our Ling Cod and planked Salmon entrees were delicious, well prepared, and attractive. We continue to enjoy M&S Harborside every time we visit.
Great food and great service. Would recommend this restaurant for a cozy meal or for a group of people.
We never got our table. We arrived early, they were late. We went to the bar, got drinks and an appetizer....then ordered dinner. We finished 45 minutes after our appointment....but they never came to move us. Ruined our Valentine's Day. Very disappointed. Used to go all the time, won't be back.
Delicious food, but surprisingly small portions for the price. Our server left something to be desired, but the Birthday Girl was happy with the evening.
Server was very inexperienced. Brought cocktails that were not garnished. Could not get cork out of wine bottle. My entrée came lacking condiment. Order after dinner coffee drink that lacked whip cream and was at best slightly warm.
I had a business dinner with 6 people. We all could hear very well. Our service was excellent and the food excellent.
Food was good! Service was unfortunately terrible. Waiter was slow, at one point we had to go find help as we didn't receive plates or drinks. We were told the waiter was on a smoke break. We were there for a birthday, nice touch that menus even said happy birthday. But waiter forgot and we had to ask about a desert for my daughter's special day. Would have had a few drinks, but couldn't get service so I guess saved some $ on that. Only a couple of tables in play and lots of employees (many hanging out socializing) while we waited and waited for basic things.
Food was good and original (horseradish crusted steelhead!), oysters fresh, nice views. Oddly on Saturday night the place was mostly empty which may explain why it was pleasantly quiet. It's expensive, but what isn't? I'm guessing that because this is a chain Seattle folk don't go but they should.
Lived the view from the table by the window. The service was excellent ( Chad).
Nice seafood options and a fun place to go if you want to splurge, but also possible to walk out with a basic meal without spending too terribly much. The chocolate silk pie was not as fluffy as I expected it to be from the description, less of a mousse consistency and more similar to a cheesecake, but everything we had tasted very nice.
Disappointed in the food. Very mediocre. But the wine was good.😊
We were very disappointed with the overall experience. The service was slow - we ordered soup and they didn't give us spoons. When I asked for pepper on my salad, the guy just handed me the pepper mill. It was odd. Will not be going back...
Oversalted Food ruined a Good Meal
Had to send back potatoes that were salty, if I were a slug, I would be shriveled up and dead. Replacement potatoes not much better. Friend asked for roasted vegetables instead of mashed potatoes. Got roasted potatoes. By the time that order was corrected, like mine, our meal was almost finished. Waiter/busser never came back to fill water glasses. Coffee was tepid and not refilled. Waiter did come and check on "how food was" but turned and around and left before we could even comment. Will not go back.
Great food. I would recommend highly. There is also a very beautiful view.
Pricy but excellent
Great waterfront views
Ample paid parking
I have had the "Chocolate Bag" (I think that's the name of the dessert at another of your locations. It was much superior. The mousse in your dessert was not smooth, and the dessert was rather put together without care. I was a bit disappointed.
Food was decent they ran out of the item I wanted on their menu (chicken parm). Our waiter didn't check on us as often as I liked, overall it was decent at best.
Our service was very slow. Took a half hour to place entree order and another half hour for our bottle of wine to show up. Food was good but honestly not 4 or 5 star worthy....pretty average fare actually. The Waterview IS VERY good.
It was NYE so we expected the service to not be the best. Our reservation ran about 40 mins over (thankfully we gave ourselves plenty of time til our plans after) after being seated we probably didn't see our server for almost 20 mins. Randomly a complimentary plate of calamari was dropped to our table as an apology for the service, so that was nice. The food was very underwhelming which was kind of a bummer. But you can't go wrong with that scenery and view of our beautiful city!!
great for seafood meals. first time at this property, great view and very cozy. the staff was friendly and atmosphere was relaxing. great view of the lake.
Oh, such a love/hate relationship!! I keep getting pulled back to this restaurant by the amazing location, but alas, I am disappointed more often than pleased. Positives first, our waitperson was very good. I wish I had asked her name, but she can attentive and friendly. The restaurant on this Thursday night was almost empty, so we had a wonderful table and almost no noise. Now for the negative. My food was disappointing. I ordered the medallion and lobster. The medallions had been ordered rare, but the outside was almost black and the meat was very very dry. Significantly overcooked. The majority of the potatoes with this dish were significantly overcooked. My partner ordered the Cod and she asked what the vegetable was with her dish was and was told it was pole beans. When the dish came, it had artichokes, and not very many. The waitstaff should know what comes with each dish each night. Her fish was dry and tough. I could possibly understand our meal to be like this if the restaurant was very busy, but it wasn't. This is my third review of this restaurant and so far, two have been overall negative. I wonder if the management actually eats the food that comes out of the kitchen. Maybe they should randomly order the dishes without the kitchen staff know it is for them. They might have a better sampling of the food being delivered to the customers. Oh, such a wonderful view......
Our new go to spot for dinner. Servers are always amazing and the food is consistent and spectacular.
Our second visit. Broad menu, so everyone could find something they like. Not too loud, which was great. Cozy seating and great view. Service was great, although they were out of wine we wanted and we didn't like the wine the waiter suggested as replacement, so we tasted another one, and by time it got ordered and uncorked, more than half of us were done with dinner. That was the only flaw. Some discount for that timing issue would have been nice.
