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.

Ordered a center cut ribeye and they brought me a bone in ribeye because they didn’t have any center cut ribeye and charged me the bone in price when I questioned the server about it they said they would fix it but was still charged more than the center cut steak price I ordered. Not my fault they let me order the center cut ribeye and didn’t tell me they didn’t have what I ordered!

Overall the experience was just okay. We waited almost 20 minutes for our waters to come out and my steak was over cooked. I finished the rest of my meal and waited for my correctly cooked steak, but by that time my sides were gone. I felt as if they should've added new sides to my new steak, but they didn't. Our server was awesome towards the end, and if I should return I will definitely request her.

We came to try the Monday 3 course special. We appreciated being able to get a salad, entree and dessert for one set price. The ambiance was nice. Our server was attentive and the food was tasty. We only wish there had been a choice of at least two different entrees for the special.

Was very disappointed with our experience at M&S. It didn't help that even though we were a couple we were sat by an obnoxious group with screaming babies - kind of kills the dinner date vibe. Server did put in a good effort but was clearly not trained well. Ribeye was seasoned well and grilled well but awfully thin for a $47 steak. My date has a dairy allergy and asked for her fish and asparagus to be grilled without butter - both came out without any oil, salt or pepper and the asparagus was steamed. Surprised both meals only came with a side of asparagus - no potato, no salad, nothing else. Definitely underwhelming for the cost. Glass of white wine came out in a dirty glass and the signature Bulliet Old Fashioned was way too sweet. Two drinks, one appetizer, two dinners and screaming babies - a very disappointing $150 spent for sure.

The food was good. The service was fine with the exception our server / main bartender was not wearing a mask. He wore his on his chin and not over his mouth. He didn't seem to care about it. All other servers complied with social distancing and wearing a face covering. At this moment, I would not recommend this restaurant until they are COVID compliant.

Had a reservation. Socially distanced tables, all was good. Waited 23 minutes after ordering to receive our cocktails. Longer than that for app. Scallop dish that came out was different that what was listed on the menu (had potatoes and spinach which were not listed). Employees seemed to be running around but not really doing anything. Ambience included tattered curtains and dirty carpet. I realize this is a chain restaurant, but overall poor form even for mediocre expectations.

Service was terrible. My 15 yo daughter asked for a refill of lemonade and was served a margarita. This was after my son ordered a sprite and was served club soda. Had to keep asking for items. Was still handed a huge check in the end. Not going back..

Looking forward to a nice quiet Saturday night out. Had requested a booth. Restaurant not crowded when we arrived / but we were told the only booth available was in the bar. It was very noisy and not at all what we had expected. The food and service were very good. Was very disappointed that one of the bartenders thought his face mask was to be used as just a chin strap. No one at the restaurant corrected him. Have eaten at this restaurant several times and always enjoyed it. We have been eating out a lot during the pandemic / Sad to say will not come back here until Covid is over.

Our first dinner out in quite a while was very good at M&S. The seating was definitely socially distant, and we were seated right away. The service was very good, as they let us sit at a different table than they had picked for us. My tuna steak was served rare as it should have been, but could have used another 30 seconds of grilling to give it a nice sear and a bit more internal warmth. My wife's scallops were cooked well, but swimming in too much sauce. The shrimp bites appetizer was well prepared - however, when we ordered it the server told us it came with onion straws - which it did not. We asked her later and she said that they had changed it and she didn't realize it. So - great effort, but not up to the par I usually expect at M&S, still glad to support them right now, and hope to return again someday when they are hitting on all cylinders.

The service was top notch and the atmosphere very good. We were able to get a romantic booth and people watch near the window.

The appetizers, libations were excellent but I was most impressed with the steak. The cost is slightly higher but expected at a higher end dining experience.

We were very disappointed with our meal. The food was great but we were never offered bread and our water glasses were not refilled. We were close to the bar and they weren’t busy at all. The waiter and bar tender were just too busy talking for our waiter to notice we needed refills. Our booth had torn seats and the restroom was pretty gross.

Hadn't been here since Covid started. It took a lot of courage to go out again. But we were not disappointed. I did have to call and ask about their safety procedures. I'd have liked to find that on the website. Other than that the evening was perfect!
Christian, our waiter and Marie at the front couldn't have been better!
