The stuffed shrimp was bland. My husband asked for his burger well done and it was medium rare! When it came back they sent the same burger he had already took a bite out of (I wonder how often that happens). At least my waitress was excellent!

We went there on a very busy Valentine's evening. Despite the crowd, the service was excellent, as was the food. The mussels and swordfish were very good. It is casual rather than elegant dining, and the prices reflect that. We appreciated the fact that, although it was a holiday, they did not use a special, over-priced menu.

The waitresses were nice but missed the mark. Found ourselves without utensils after the salad, Clam chowder was not delivered until main course came. Food was just ok.
Too bad used to be a favorite place.

We went to check out this place for a possible rehearsal dinner location, and both my fiancé and I were impressed with the service from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The food was amazing and the service just pushed it to a different level. I would highly recommend this place to anybody in the DTC area.

The waitress was great, however the hostess was very rude, dismissive and not very accepting to a minor change. This was for a board of directors dinner and had two additional guests at the last minute. She was reluctant and dismissive about adding extra seating and not friendly whatsoever.

My wife and I visited McCormick & Schmick's to celebrate our anniversary on a cold snowy Sunday evening. We were greeted by the General Manager who was serving as the hostess. She was so pleasant and welcoming. Our server was excellent as well. We ordered off of the special Sunday evening prix fixe menu that made the meal an excellent value. All in all, we had a lovely time and would definitely return and recommend the restaurant to others.

Sadly disappointed, my husband and I had not been there for a while, we totally dislike the "new" (to us) menu. The fresh fish selection no longer exists, the oyster selection does not exist and in fact there were no shellfish in the ice when walking in. I ordered the lobster tails...more like large shrimp/prawns, the mashed potatoes with lobster bisque is not a good addition to the lobster, lumpy dry, potatoes.

Very disappointed. First: I ordered an Old Fashioned drink to start. The flavor was fine but it was made with regular ice. Thus melts fast and dilutes the drink. Should have been served with the large single ice cube. Second, the tuna tartare was made table side w ith a mustard sauce. Terrible idea with tuna. Way too over powering. Then came the lump crab cake; I thought it was a joke, I seen better looking one out of the freezer. It was flat in flavor and appearance and there was no lump crab to be seen. Tasted like they forgot the crab and served just the breading. The wedge salad was dull at best. Then there was the entree...seared tuna. Over cooked and over seasoned. When you spend over $200 for a dinner for 2 you expect to get what you paid for. I will not go back and I wish there was a way to get my money back. Advise for the restaurant? Go go Delfrisco's see how it is supposed to be done.

Excellent! We went to McCormick’s on New Years Day with our toddler (nervous since it’s nice) but they were extremely accommodating and our little guy behaved!
Food was excellent: crab legs were perfectly cooked and not over-salted. Fish n’ chips were crunchy and not greasy!
Comfortable, Business casual dining with ambience similar to the old McCormick’s downtown. Still sad that location closed but this is just as nice!

The service was fantastic, the food and drinks were disappointing. When i spend over $150 for a meal for 2 i expect better than ok. The portion was the size of what i would serve to my 10yrs old son. The drink had no liquor, for $14 each i expect that some liquor would be added.

This is the 5th time I’ve been at this location and it’ll be my last. 1) had 845 pm NYE reserv. Arrived a little early and was informed they were running late maybe 30 minutes behind. 2) they told us to wait in the bar nd they would get us. 3) while at the bar getting a drink noticed it was around 9. The bartender started telling his crew 1 hour !! I was shocked to find out the entire place shuts down at 10 pm !!! Lol really !! Even on NYE. The bartender said we could grab a table in the bar area which we did . The greeters and hostess at front were ill prepared to handle anything that night and were more interested in going out after closing.
The HVAC system in the bar is a joke. You need to have heated air curtains at the exit doors ! Every time the door opened ( which was every 2 minutes) it was freezing. Not good. Not good at all. But 10 pm closing every nite including new year eve ??? Really !

Lobster Cobb salad was awkward to eat ... way too many tomatoes and too expensive - this is a $15 item at most

Showed up with a 5:30 res and was told there were no booths even though I reserved two weeks prior - consequently, we had to sit in the bar area

We scheduled this NYE meal early to beat the crowds and have the evening free. We definitely achieved that goal as we were one of maybe five dining groups in the first seating. The walnut mixed greens salad was plentiful and fresh, the clam chowder tasty, but small. My dinner partner enjoyed the filet mignon, prepared just right, though the brocolini was slightly under done. My seafood mixed grill was plentiful, the stuffed shrimp unique, and the salmon prepared just right. My veggies were clearly fresh, though also undercooked. The sauces complimented everything very well. The spiced raspberry cooler was refreshing. Overall, a very nice meal with attentive service. A great start to celebrate the ringing in of a new year.
