McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Crystal City Ratings and Reviews
We made reservation but when we arrived we were told to wait for quite a while. Our calamari appetizer was really salty. My order of the new york strip was over cooked. My baby’s order of spaghetti was left out in the food heater so when it was served the noodles were all crispy. Truffle fries were also overly salted and soggy. Spending almost $300.00 would havent been a problem if the food was satisfactory. I will not recommend or go back. Thank you
Went here with my significant other for a quick dinner after shopping in DC. It was quiet and classy with fantastic food. Our server was wonderful and answered all of my questions about dishes with ease and we got a nice booth to sit comfortably together. This is a wonderful place for a date or anniversary.
The situation was the restaurant's salute to Veterans As a Viet Nam veteran I want to thank McCormick and Schmick sincerely for their gesture. The food was superb, the service excellent, the reservation was on time and the entire experience I would rate outstanding. Thank you.
I visited during the Respect Veterans Meal offer. While finding an ideal time for dinner during such a promotion was not available, I settled for a late lunch and was not disappointed. The fare was varied and tasty. The service was great. The meal was free allowing for a great tip to my waiter! I have been coming to this McCormick's for two years. They try to do a credible job in the challenging face of hiring and training wait-staff. Sometimes the wait time during lunch, given the size of the customers present leaves something to be desired, they do try and fulfill their promise to great food and service. I believe they would increase their customer base by discounting certain evenings and times when customer demand is at the week's low. Recommend you drop by and see for yourself. Do lunch though first. It's a better value and gives you a sense of the food and service. Edward
Our meals were good but not stellar. The crab cakes had a lot of filler. The Maryland crab soup had lots of crab but lacked a bit in vegetables. The salads were tasty but not very good. For the price (pretty average) I think there are better seafood restaurants.
Our waitress, Chanel, was nice and accommodating even while she was serving a large party next to us. For the number of people, it wasn’t extremely loud but was a bit noisy.
I might go back if I were in the area but would recommend it with reservation. We had a limited sample of the entire menu. There appeared to be other restaurants within walking distance that we might try if I’m the area.
Made a reservation for my sisters birthday. The hostess and the food were the only thing positive I can say about this restaurant. Waited for 15 minutes for someone to acknowledge us in the bar so went to get a drink myself.. Bartender super frazzled and told me they ran out of Tito's. Then I tried ordering another type of vodka and he ran out while pouring. In the meantime, reservation was called so I told him to forget it. You would have thought he would have offered to send it over but no such luck. It only get's worse from there. Service was super slow and the waiter never checked back with us to see how our dinner was that took forever to come. The food was hot and cooked as specified. Don't waste your time or money going to this place. Hopefully, they can turn it around because the food was good. Perhaps a good manager will help, did not see one.
The McCormick and Schmick's brand has severely deteriorated over the past 7 years or so. This location is no exception. I'll start by saying that our waiter was excellent and attentive. We ordered the stuffed salmon and rockfish. After waiting 45 minutes for our meal, it finally arrived. The rockfish came out room temperature and lacked depth of flavor. At room temperature, I was surprised to find it overcooked. The stuffed salmon on the other hand came out completely cold, including the mashed potatoes and vegetables. We sent it back to be placed in the microwave. To our later amusement, we noticed that when we told the waiter, he wasn't surprised at all that our food wasn't satisfactory. The dessert, bread pudding, was the meal's highlight. The food wasn't bad, it just wasn't what I'm used to for M&S, nor was it worth the price tag.
M&S prices seem consistent with a predominantly expense account clientele. Their atmosphere, service, and prices are a cut above the nearby Legal Seafoods, which is more likely to be frequented by louder groups and families. So, it was perfect for quiet conversation with a friend in an unhurried way. The cocktails were well made, and the food (mine was a trio of salmon, & fried & stuffed shrimp) was perfectly prepared, including the vegetables. Our server, Frank, was a model of attentiveness and cooperation. Overall: Very Good, but no bargain.
