Front desk was a mess, No organization lost track of reservation arrival times. And then seating walkins before reservations. With that said... After finally being seated our server was absolutely amazeing. We could not have asked for more. She did everything perfectly from drinks always full to checking in while eating our meal without being present 2 much. Table was always cleaned after each plate was finished so we never felt crowded. Hats off too the chef everything was cooked perfectly and as ordered.

Food took a long time. We knew it was a higher priced menu, but it was really high. 6 ppl $550 without alcohol. But it was a nice evening, food good.

Terrible waiter, food came out not even lukewarm, manager brought out again and the same. Absolutely the worst meal/experience I’ve had eating out. A waste of $150 for 2!

The restaurant was nice with a great atmosphere. Tables are a little packed in together...hard to maneuver when walking through. Staff was all very nice and attentive. Food was good but a little disappointing for the price...very limited menu and quality just so-so. Chocolate bag definitely lived up to the hype...it was the highlight of the evening. Overall, was a decent experience.

It was a very busy night--the night after Thanksgiving. Most of us thought our food was fine, but nothing special. I was disappointed, given the prices.

My son's girlfriend had a grass hopper in her Salad she freaked. Management came and apologized but didn't even offer her a free meal. Probably wont go back after that.

Thanksgiving salads came to our table after our main dish. We had to ask twice for our bread which came mid-way into the meal. The main dish was luke warm and we had no silverware to eat until asking a bus boy to bring some to us. I know it was a very busy day on Thanksgiving so I will try it again on a non-holiday.

Great service by Jalen and unbelievable delicious Thanksgiving dinner. Jalen helped me choose a glass of wine by suggesting one her personally liked and I truly enjoyed it. It was such a special treat to go out dinner after all of these years of preparing our dinners

This was our Thanksgiving meal for 4 of us. Our waitress was great, answering questions and attending to our dining experience. Reserved time was met, and while they were very busy, we never felt rushed to eat and leave. The food was very good. We had one fish dinner and three thanksgiving specials. The food was plentiful and for the most part excellent. The turkey was a mix if white and dark meat. I am not a big fan of dark meat, so I found it a little tough and stringy. That may just be the meat though. I would order it again, even with the dark meat. Overall outstanding dining experience on a very busy day.

As always, we enjoyed eating here. While the waitress wasn't sure what a Dark & Stormy cocktail is, the bartender did just fine - and that's where it matters. We did not order the Thanksgiving menu. Instead, my husband and I each ordered the shrimp-crab stuffed salmon, which was very good. The wine markup was about 4 times, which is high, but it was a holiday, so I didn't care. We ended with our usual chocolate "bag" filled with mousse and berries and coffee. The restaurant is noisy - not enough sound-dampering materials. But the skylight is beautiful.

Thanksgiving Dinner. Outstanding all the way…. Service was the best by waiter “PJ”. And food was spot on with traditional but we had seafood and took traditional home. LOL
Reservation timely but had to sit in “side room” even with making res about a month ago… it was a little crowded and noisy but still everything exceeded expectations
GREAT job by that team

Very very very disappointed. Have always liked M&S but this Thanksgiving experience has not evoked any gratitude. Should have been “ warned” by the table next to us leaving over half their turkey meals uneaten That protein had consistency of a compressed turkey log. Horrible texture and somewhat tasteless. One of our party ordered from the “regular” dinner menu which had been touted online as an option. Severely limited choices as only a compressed menu was offered. Service just OK ( why they put biggest waiter into small overflow room with table far too tightly packed together, I don’t know) On subject of table placement , there was no privacy as tables were INCHES apart Extremely loud music ( at one point C&W!!!) did little to encourage any hope of conversation. Whole experience left a poor taste (literally and metaphorically) in our mouths

Our son and his wife were visiting and we hadn’t been to McCormick & Schmick’s for a while. It was 6:45 pm two days before Thanksgiving and I’ve never seen the lobby area empty. The hostess was nice but not the usual way we’ve been greeted in the past. Our server was nice, but seemed inexperienced. It took almost 20 minutes to get our cocktails - a big restaurant no-no. The food was mediocre at best and we all noticed the very limited menu. It was not a positive dining experience at all and we were very disappointed.

The food is always great at M&S. Fletcher, our server provided excellent recommendations in terms of the food and wine pairing that was to our liking. We eat here a lot because of the atmosphere. We'll keep coming back. Thank you!

Brittnae was our server and did an excellent job. The food was delicious. The only drawback was the time lag between when our salads were cleared and when our entrees were delivered. Other than that, it was an outstanding experience.

Went for a bday lunch for my mom and noted on my reservation to bring out a happy birthday message with her dessert and they read it and we’re on top of it. Also enjoyed numerous oysters and was told about each one.

They seated us in the side area which was dark with no ambiance even though plenty of tables were open in the main area. My swordfish was really good. The spinach was bland and we had to ask two different people for salt and pepper. The ribeye was fine and prepared well but not worth the price when sitting at a dingy table.

I would definitely recommend McCormick & Schmick's to anyone who's looking for a great dining experience.

Everyone at the table ordered the special but since I'm a vegetarian I wasn't able to order the special. The server spoke with the chef and he was able to create a delicious pasta dish with all kinds of roasted vegetables which I finished at the table, no take home tonight!
