Considering this survey request came from Open Table, I find it ironic that when we got there, the restaurant had no reservation for us, obviously made through Open Table who sent this survey.

The food I ordered was sword fish with onions & beets. I could not identify the beets. They looked black and uninviting and the sword fish was bland. I ordered chocolate silk pie which was overly sweet and seemed to be frozen and left to thaw. I was really looking forward to it. I gave it to my husband. He and my son ordered Cream Brulie which was late in being delivered to our table because they had no propane to torch the top of the desert.

Big bummer this big birthday bash. We come 10-12 times a year, but this time huge bummer
Steak was cooked so wrong. One side cooked and other side not cooked. and when it went back to cook just on one side, came back even worse. Cold mashed.
Will start looking for a new place after this. Had to give half of my $40 steak to my dog because cooked so badly. Used to love this place.

Disappointed overall experience. Food was terrible, vegetable are over cooked and dry, steak and lobster were over done, demi glazed sauce tasted funny. We had to ask for bread. I can keep going on but you get the picture .... BAD BAD BAD!!!! Not going back here and not recommended!

With very few tables taken for lunch, table service should have been stellar. Instead, we were virtually forgotten enough, we had to search for our waitress. Food is excellent, ambiance wonderful, location great, so we looked forward to meeting here. Unfortunately, with the poor service and music so loud it interfered with conversation, one of our party simply had enough and left in frustration. Embarrassing as I chose the restaurant.

Went downhill over the last few years. Food was way over priced and just adequate. Service was slow and restaurant was 3/4 empty at 6:30 on a Saturday night. Not a good sign

The lady that served us was wonderful. My dinner companion and I talked a lot and she gave us time to talk, and when we said we were ready, took the order. Great.

I've been a patron off and on of the McCormick & Schmick restaurants for the past 24 years and I have to say the food quality has dropped from the early years. Various store locations have closed as well. They used to have a generous seafood or crab louis salad to today the closest is a lobster tower salad which does not have the flavor at all nor the variety of vegetables. The venue is still great and has ambiance and charm, but my main issue is the food quality. I was very proud to be a patron and hope that they bring back the crab louis salad. My colleague had the beer batter fish-n-chips which was acceptable, just not outstanding. I will continue to drop in from time to time in hopes they've improved, but the for past few years the menu hasn't changed too much. My choice was made based on trying to find a health option that had some protein for lunch. My suggestion is refocus on the food quality and the business will pick-up. The service is above average but could be improved.

Food is always solid and consistent, but pricy for quantity. But a busy night, so we were places in one quadrant if he restaurant while there were more comfortable booths available.

We had a great meal and very good drinks. I had the sea bass special recommended by our server. Very tasty broth and the fish was delicious. Service was paced about right. It was not very busy but there were some larger tables that took the server away some but we never felt neglected. Great table up front near the windows. It was fun watching all the foot traffic going by out front. Good spot for people watching.

From the moment we walked in the door the service was very poor. We were not cheerfully greeted and the hostess did not know what to do with us. When we were seated it appeared that no staff was assigned to our table. Others who came in after us were greeted a served while we sat with no attention. Finally someone asked if we had been served and when we said no they went to find someone. We think the bartender was recruited to serve our table. Even then the service was slow, we were brought the wrong drinks, and everything appeared to be an afterthought. We say other tables receiving friendly service with waiters that talked to them but that is not what we received. We will never go there again.

Additionally, when I made reservations online I was asked if it was a special occasion to which I checked the box that it was our anniversary. I don't know why they asked as they did nothing with that information.

We showed up fifteen minutes before our 9:30 reservation to fond the doors locked, customers seated at tables and employees standing behind the counter. A total waste of an uberbride.

The swordfish was raw, the salmon overcooked and dry. We needed to send both back for refiring. The refires were satisfactory, though the salmon refire was under. Our server and the manager handled the issues well, comping one entree and a dessert. It was disappointing, as fish is their specialty.

Have been in the past but this time the food was not very good and our waiter had no personality and just went through the motions. My wifes steak was ordered to be med-rare but cam med-well, My food was only ok and had no taste. I think my days going here are over.

Hostess had some attitude when we didn’t want to sit in the booth in the sun, Waiter didn’t check on us much, and we just didn’t emcees welcomed overall. The food was okay but I probably could have paid a half the price and gone to Outback instead for better food. I will not be back and will not recommend.

They did not have the trout almondine on the menu any longer which was always my favorite at the restaurant. I tried the Parmesan cod but it was tasteless, over-breaded and greasy. No sauce to speak of. Very disappointed as I used to look forward to eating here. Very overpriced for the quality of the food.

We have only been here twice the first time we had a wonderful experience so we divide to go back for our Anniversary and 65th birthday . The second time was not great. The server was dull, not engaging at all. This was not during an overly busy time. Also If you are planning a celebration make sure you tell them multiple times. I called to double check our reservations and remind them of the celebration. No time during our time there was it even acknowledged. So disappointed after spending $200.00!!

Food here was excellent. I ate the parmesan crusted sole with yummy orzo. My only complaint is with the service. The waiter, whom I believe was training someone, never came back to our table after our first drink order. We really wanted more water but by the time he did come back, we were through with our dinner and wanted the bill. I was surprised he did not at least ask if we wanted to order another drink. He took the order but someone else delivered the food. And then we didn't see him until we were all done eating. Kind of disappointing service but good atmosphere.

We had great service here. As someone with a severe food allergy, I am always a bit worried going out to eat. However, when I mentioned this to our waiter, she was so kind and brought out the general manager who walked us through the entire menu and explained what was safe and what wasn't. He personally prepared our food as well; way above and beyond! I highly recommenced McCormick & Schmick's Seafood in Bellevue, especially if you have food allergies.

In our case the only reason we did not rate the food higher is the location did not have Halibut available for a dinner choice which is always excellent. Market price was too high so the chef decided to skip it as an option. What we had was excellent.

i have been going there every year when I and my wife visit Bellevue. I have to say the quality and service has worsen every year. The value for money is not worth it and the service level definitely dropped significantly. Maybe that's why less than half of the seats were fully at 7 pm on a Saturday evening. I would not visit the restaurant again.

Made reservations for an important family event. Arrived right on time and was soon seated. After being seated they finished rearranging table settings disrupting conversation. Food was delivered before drinks had arrived. Service felt like a family steak house instead of a fine eating establishment. We chose this restaurant because of good experiences in the past. Clearly they are no longer in that league.

Service was a little slow. He never checked with us when we received our food and my water was empty for a while. Nothing special about the dining experience or the restaurant itself. The crab cake was cold. Would probably choose somewhere else next time
