I understand that we are in a pandemic but that meal was really sad. My meal was in small portions and taste like it had been seating.

This was a birthday dinner. The notation on the menu was nice and what I always experienced at M&S.
The waiter was knowledgeable and his suggestions were on point.
The food was great as usual.
We sat on the patio and not only was the food up to par, but the weather cooperated as well. Bonus!
The only thing - and it’s not not a big sticking point - was that there was no offer of a special dessert. Usually, M&S makes the overture to acknowledge that occasion and I overheard waitstaff acknowledge a birthday at another table. But not ours. Small oversight, but anything that takes away from my loved one’s special day tends to stand out to me.

This was our first dining experience at McCormick & Schmick. We were EXTREMELY impressed. I am a huge fan of chilean sea bass & have had the pleasure of enjoying it in many locations. This was bar-none, the best I've ever eaten. It was exceptional. My husband enjoyed the salmon special & was extremely impressed, as well. Our server John was pleasant & attentive. We will definitely choose McCormick & Schmick anytime we travel to a location where you are available. Unfortunately, none are available in our home state of KY.

A good romantic place to celebrate with very good service. Question menu extensively as some items are bit confusing. Shrimp cocktail was poorly deveined and lobster overdone. Chef salmon special was very good.

The title of the restaurant is seafood and steak restaurant. However their seafood selection was very poor. We would recommend them to re-label it as steak and some seafood.

Steak was phenomenal, the seafood not so impressive. The Asparagus was woody.

Also we were celebrating A birthday and they did not acknowledge that at all despite us telling them that on a reservation.

Everything was fantastic with the exception of our waitress. Couldn’t find her during the service. Another waitress had to step in. All tables around us had great service bread and drinks.
Unfortunate. Loved the food and our table location.

20 year anniversary celebration - server must have been new. Never acknowledged our anniversary even though the menu had printed happy anniversary. Server had dirty glasses on table and had to ask him to remove them. Ice server was told desert was not needed. We were still eating and he left the check to be paid.

The Manager did come over and apologized for the poor service and took off our shrimp app/ she provided desert on the house and re-printed new Happy Anniversary 20 years for us to take

We went for our anniversary, the first nice dinner out in close to 2 years. I called the night before to be sure they had lobster tails. Our server listed them as a special. We were there at 4 pm and he came back and said they were out. I ordered a steak with no pepper and it came out cooked perfectly but there was pepper all over it from the grill. The asparagus was the same. I cut off all the outside edges so I could eat it. My husband had bourbon salmon and he said it was good. And the french silk pie was good. Not worth the expense, we will not return.

I would not recommend anyone waste their money for high priced flavorless, fishy tasting chilean sea bass. Lobster mashed potatoes that look like they have tomato soup poured over them. A ribeye steak ordered medium rare came out medium well the next one came out very rare. All to celebrate and 85th birthday.

Our server was totally connected to the menu and could tell us anything we wanted to know and direct us. Good attention to detail, the drinks were refilled without asking (a big plus for me) and food was top-notch and arrived in a reasonable amount of time for the dish, which was served at optimum temperature.

A really good dining experience. I will be going back!

Although the food was delicious this was the 3rd time we’ve booked reservations based on advertising received about specials. Extremely frustrating to get to the restaurant and find out they either don’t have the specials advertised or they are differently priced or something else that is not as described in the enticing advertising. Very disappointed.

Our only complaint about the food is that the grilled asparagus was over cooked. The prices are a bit high but the restaurant was nice and quiet. Of course there were very few people in the restaurant at the time. Service was good but we found it odd that when we asked about dinner rolls were told bread was served by request only.

Came for restaurant week again! I was going to try something different, but I ended getting the same appetizer and entree as the previous time this week. I enjoyed it so much! I only change my dessert. This time I got the peanut butter pie and it did not disappoint. It was so rich and the perfect end to a delicious meal!
