The waiter was nice and informative.
We ordered right away.
1 hour and 15 mins to have our over cook chicken served to us.
We were disappointed.
He never asked how our food was.
We did not complain as we did not see him again.
There for nearly 2 hours, and waiting, we flagged him down for our checks so we were able to leave.

I reserved a table for 6 for a birthday dinner it took over 50 mins to get drinks and appetizers and out dinner nearly and hour and a half later… everyone one had seafood so the food should have came out all at once. Instead some had hot and cold spots along their food. The server was not attentive only refilling water once during our 2 hour stay. Overall food was ok. Not great. Probably won’t come back

The service was sub par. Our Waitress appeared to have forgotten about us. Other table who arrived after we did, re4ceived their food before us. Looked like they had a huge amount of the Atlanta United in there just before we arrived and they were regrouping from that. Overall, nice place but maybe we picked a wrong time to dine. Overall, the food was pretty tasty and warm all the way through. Also, the presentation and drink was great!!

I took my girlfriend to McCormick & Schmick's for her birthday - she loved it. The atmosphere was romantic, the waitress was professional and attentive, and we sat by the window to enjoy people watching.

Service was very slow and the restaurant was not even full. It took us 30 minutes to get water and other drinks and nearly 2 hours to get food even though we ordered at our first opportunity. When the food arrived it was over cooked and barely warm. For the price we paid, I would expect a much better experience. It was not a good night.

Service was subpar. This was a business dinner and the waitress forgot 1 person's appetizer, one person's side with entree. She brought me a wine glass and 20 minutes later the wine. She never apologized , she never asked if we needed anything. The food was not hot, the flavors not like they used to be. Tasted like frozen preprepared fish. Appetizer was overcooked. Won't be back anytime soon.

McCormick & Schmick's is one of my favorite downtown restaurants! The food is always great and I'm hoping that now the restaurant industry is moving past COVID, they will return to offering great specials throughout the coming year(s)!

We were in town for a quick trip from Cleveland, and my family (with the exception of me) loves steak. The food was good, but not amazing. They forgot to put the chicken on my salad, so my food came way after everyone else had eaten their food, which kind of stunk. Service was okay, but not overly awesome.

We made a reservation to eat dinner right before game 4 of the series finale. The service was a little slower than normal but was great once the server came to our table. The food was delicious as usual but I felt like the portions were a little small.

The lobster bisque was way too salty. We had to return it three times and ultimately I never ate the live service. The food quality seems to have gone down in the past few years. This was our favorite restaurant and now the food is not as appetizing.

It was horrible and me and my family will never go back. The server gave us water and didn’t come back to the table for 30 mins. He was gone so long that I had to stop a manager and get her to take our order. The food finally came and the portions were really small. It took two hours for us to get in and out that restaurant because the service was so slow. And their server had the nerve to include an 18% gratuity on the check. Worst Father’s Day dinner EVER

I haven’t eaten at this location in years. I was a bit behind schedule. Unfortunately no one answered the phone when I called. We were greeted in a timely manner. Our server Monique was Amazing. She was quick and funny. I ordered an Old Fashioned which was drinkable. For dinner I had the Australian Lobster 🦞 tail. It was presented and looked delicious. Unfortunately, it was undercooked. I was offered a replacement but I declined. I will definitely return and will try the lobster again.

The amount of knats we had to deal with during our dining experience was utterly ridiculous! It significantly impacted our meal. For dining for 2 over $250, there should’ve been something they could do. Can’t say we’ll return. We had to kill a few while eating which is disgusting. At some point we just have up and let one have the lobster mashed potatoes. Just recalling the experience I’m affected even now. It’s a shame. The food is good — just not good enough at those prices to feel like we were eating outside. I could understand if we were dining outside but we weren’t. I even made a small plate just for the bugs and set it off to the far side of the table hoping to keep them out of our face and food but to no avail. I’m really disappointed. Though, what could the server do but apologize for the inconvenience and blame the constantly opening door over 20 feet away and set off behind a wall. It’s not worth it for me. Bugs, especially constant disturbances, are a deal breaker. I had a terrible experience swatting them away during our entire sitting.
