Featuring seasonal seafood, tender steaks and signature oysters, our commitment to freshness is reflected in our daily changing menu. From our seasonal Wild Isles Salmon caught from the coast of Scotland's Shetland Islands, to our Hawaiian Seafood overnighted from the Honolulu Fish Auction, and Wild Pacific Northwest Salmon pulled from pristine river waters, our menu incorporates regional tastes, farm fresh products, and local and sustainably sourced ingredients wherever possible. With our exclusive line of signature oysters sourced from our own private oyster beds, as well as a fine selection of steaks, soups, salads and pasta dishes, McCormick & Schmick's appeals to the tastes of all diners. Our focus on the true spirit of hospitality only adds to our appeal, making us a popular destination on Veterans Day and Memorial Day, where we honor the military with free meals, as well as an ideal setting for private special occasions, date night and business functions.

Foods good but there’s a stale smell to the place, most likely from unclean carpeting.

My wife and I have only dined a few time at M&S but each time has been met with exceptional service along with a 5 star atmosphere. The most recent visit was a surprise birthday visit for my wife. Her parents flew in from GA and the staff helped facilitate the lunch with a personal birthday touch and treated my wife as the guest of honor. Thanks again and we look forward to more visits in the future.

Food was excellent for the most part. All three of us had mashed potatoes with our dinner entree and we all had room temperature mashed potatoes. The service was excellent and efficient.

Food was excellent. Service was a little slow. Good thing we had allowed some extra time as we had ticket to the theatre. Would go back. Fish & Chips and Trout were great.

I've walked by this place a hundred times, ignoring it because I thought it was another pricey steak/seafood house. Gave it a try before the theatre and was super pleasantly surprised. DELICIOUS happy hour food menu and pricing, with light , healthy options that we fresh and delicious. Nice wine list too and great ambience. Service was exceptional too. Just really impressed and will be back!

I have been here many times in the past. Just two weeks ago with my lady friends and sat in the same area. That time the steak was delicious, service was great!

Yesterday—We made a reservation for a late VALENTINE DATE. We were seated in the bar area. Not great ambiance, not a date nite dining experience, potatoes were cold, steak was ok—but not cooked as requested and I question the freshness of it as it was very brown on the inside not at all cooked medium! We spent $180 for dinner for two—- Price was not unexpected, but expected: better service, much better food quality, VERY DISAPPOINTED! Not sure I will be back for awhile after checking the STAR rating for this location in Comparison to other McCormick & Schmick location in the country!!

Seated at a table by the bathrooms, when there were open booths in a better location.

Service was slow after waitress wanted our drink order before we could pick up the menu.

Felt like they were rushing us to get out of there, and then after ordering, took a good bit of time to receive our food.

They added extra tables for valentines day and our server kept telling us how backed up they were. Just not professional and service was not what was expected. Very poor.

Made a reservation for Valentine’s Day WEEKS in advance. The service was terrible as in couldn’t get waited on. Our drinks took forever and we had to hunt down a waiter to to order more .We then had to wait what seemed like forever to get them. The bread showed up after our meal, The steak was not cooked to order and was sent back at my own risk. The food was good after we got it but that was so overshadowed by the crap service it ruined it for me. Our check for two people was $168.00 for a meal that made this valentines date one to forget. This experience left me to wonder how this place stays open.

Flavor was incredible. It had been a few years between my dining experiences and was discouraged by the variety changes. I know it’s steak and seafood, but they used to offer many “normal” appetizers and sides that are no longer available. You can’t please everyone and this isn’t an issue. I’m just providing my honest feedback. My fiancé and I loved our meal!

Food was outstanding. Service was great. Our waitress even ask as we sat down if we were going to a show and were under a time crunch. (We were going to a show but were not under a time crunch.) It shows that they know their customers and want to meet their needs, which played out for our entire time there. Definitely recommend it.

Celebrated Valentines early. Started in the bar with happy hour oysters, shrimp, and drinks which were fabulous, including the service. At dinner we sat at a table near the front door, with cold drafts every time someone entered/exited. Service was slow and waiter brought the wrong salad with no apology. Salmon pasta & trout with risotto & Brussels were fantastic. Will request a different table next time.

Food was overpriced. Service was pretty slow but they were extremely nice. My biggest complaint would be the price of food for the value. It taste ok but was definitely not worth the cost, therefore we will not be returning .

We arrived 10 minutes before our reservation and we’re seated promptly. Drinks and appetizers ordered quickly. We ordered our entrees and waited over an hour for them to come. The restaurant was busy and the kitchen was swamped. The server stopped by often and updated us to no avail. The manager, Brian brought our entrees and I voiced my displeasure at the long wait for our meals. He apologized profusely and agreed that we had reason to be disappointed. He took care of the entire bill for the evening. I appreciated his honesty and desire to make things right. The food was good despite the snafu in the kitchen. We will go again as we have enjoyed M&S in the past.
