Over priced, out of ribeye steak, mashed potatoes were cold and tasted boxed. Server was nice, everything else was very overated.

Had a martini, olives had no taste!
The seafood preparation was good
The Seabass was cooked well, the sauce and vegetables were underwhelming.
Out of two of the fish entree’s we wanted. The mash potatoes that came with the lobster tails were like warm

My ahi was excellent, but my wife had the recommended swordfish was so dry that had to take drink with every swallow to get it down. Sever never asked how things were to get a chance to tell them and maybe get something else. Probably not going back. Meal, drinks and appetizers were $150. Too much for this level of food and service.

The waiter was delightful. The food was ok but it had sat out for awhile after preparation and was a little dried up. The problem was sanitation. When we were seated they walked us by the kitchen which was a mess. Things out of place and lots of debris. The wood molding around our booth had food and dust all over it. Under the table was disgusting with food debris covering the floor next to the wall. Walking out by the bar wasn’t so great but what caught my eye was the dishwasher racks stacked on the bar. We won’t go back.

This restaurant is definitely past its prime. Blah food and service to boot.
They will substitute items on their menu and not ask your permission.
Now, I know why the one in Atlanta closed. It is not a fine dining seafood restaurant.

A wonderful Mother's Day dinner. Food was excellent from clam chowder, greens with glazed walnuts, ribeye filet, mashed potatoes, asparagus and green beans.
I am not a chocoholic but had to get the chocolate box dessert to bring home - 1 enough for 4 servings - white chocolate mousse and fresh berries were outstanding. Husband had the candied apple pie with caramel sauce that was awesome also.
The restaurant was very busy but background music toned down the conversations to a nice level.

Thank you for allowing us to spend Mother's Day with your staff. First of all our Waiter was very attentive and very good. We were very excite about dining at your restaurant since we had not been there for a few years, and was excited that it was also Mother's Day and a chance to eat lunch with my son, wife and two of our dear friends. My wife ordered the Fish & Chips and was expecting this wonderful presentation of two large pieces of fish as it use to be, but not this time. What she received was a few small pieces that look as if it was ordered from Long John Silvers with just some fries. She was so disappointed in the presentation, texture, taste and price and how it did not present well. My stake was over cooked and the asparagus was a bit hard and my meal was a bit bare as I only had a small 6oz filet mignon and a few stalks of asparagus, which made my plate look fairly bare. For the price of $44 and a Mother's Day Special, we were expecting a lot more than we received as it relates to the quality of the food and the amount.

After placing our drink orders and our choices in the Mother’s Day special menu. After a very short wait, our entree was served. We complained that we hadn’t even gotten our drinks or our salads yet but we were told that they would be coming soon. They did arrive soon and we complained to our waiter. He offered to do something if our food got cold while we were eating our salad. This made our meal feel very rushed instead of the relaxed atmosphere we expected. The food was excellent but the fast service of our entree made everything seem hurried.

We were sat in a busy walkway near the front door, which was also very cold. Made it difficult to experience the potentially great atmosphere and quality experience.

My dinner was absolutely delicious. The sole was perfectly cooked. My only complaint is the kitchen back up. we waited almost 40 minutes after placing out orders to get our meal. Our server was great, and helped make the wait tolerable.

Got seated on time but had wait over an hour for my food. That is the reason I rated it so low. Other than that, everything was fine.

Went in for an anniversary. I made the reservation ahead of time and indicated it was our anniversary. Our server did ask if it was our anniversary but really didn't say much other than that. Was hoping with anniversary we might get a better table, perhaps a booth or something slightly more private. We were seated among a big group of people including a group behind us that was loud and learned language tips from salty sailors. Must be the seafood.

The calamari was actually really greasy. It was ok from a taste standpoint but very greasy.

My wife's dish, the seared tuna with sesame seed crust was good with the exception of the salad portion which was VERY spicy and she was not warmed. My sea bass was pretty good but not spectacular. Do they serve bread with dinner there at all. I never got any but saw other tables with bread baskets.

Overall it was a pretty lackluster experience for an anniversary and I likely will not be going back. I have been to other McCormick & Schmick's locations including in Portland, OR and had much better experiences there.
