McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - McLean Ratings and Reviews
Not the level of service you’d expect at a place like this. It took over 10 minutes to be acknowledged once we were seated. A server that wasn’t ours noticed we’d been sitting a while, brought us water, apologized, and let us know our server would be right with us. (They weren’t busy at all, by the way). About 5 minutes later an older gentleman literally threw down some bread and butter on our table and quickly walked away. Another 5 minutes passed and the same man pops up and shouts “crab cakes?” Turns out this same older man was our server. I don’t know his name, because he never introduced himself or apologized for the wait for that matter. To make a long story short the food was great but the server was extremely off putting and put a damper on the entire meal. With all of the great options in the area (it was our first time at this particular McCormick and Schmicks) we’ll opt for Eddie V’s or Ruth’s Chris.
We had reservations for NYE in a booth and were initially disappointed we still had to wait for about 25 minutes. The entire staff made up for it and it turned out to be a fantastic night with great food and excellent service! It was definitely worth the wait! As we've always experienced dining there, the food was absolutely the best.
Disappointed in the overall experience. Had dinner at 7 on New Year's Eve prior to going to a later party. We selected the restaurant b/c of location and because we thought it was a high-end steak house. Our waiter seemed overwhelmed the entire time, even though the restaurant was not very busy. Other waiters were more friendly and not harried. My husband ordered a rib-eye and was told they were out--- for a steak house to be out of one of the prime cuts of beef seems odd- obviously the kitchen had not planned and prepared for the holiday. The food was only mediocre and not what we expected for the price. The wine list was less than mediocre and very overpriced. We will not be returning to a McCormick & Schmick's.
I’ve visited different location, McLean location was a disappointment:
- Seated initially at worse table in entire establishment despite multiple open tables. After we were moved others were seated at same table and they asked to be moved as well.
- Waiter did not go over specials or dessert choices
- Waiter forgot order and did not bring out all appetizers
We have had Christmas dinner at the Tyson's McCormick & Schmick several times over the years and always had an extremely positive experience. This time the soup was cold and salty and the rest of the meal was only so-so. Greatly disappointed! However, the chocolate bag and the apple tart were terrific.
I have eaten at this restaurant on multiple occasions and have always felt it was worth the expense. I decided this would be an ideal place to celebrate our Christmas Eve by taking the family out for a high quality dining experience. Unfortunately, I experience was anything but high quality. While our server was polite he was barely existent throughout the evening, only coming at the obligatory check-in points. I even had to chase him down to get the check and pay for the meal, finally asking another server to help. I never did see our server at the end. It took us neatly an hour to get our meals, and when we did one member of our party was not served. His remarks was that there was an accident in the kitchen. The buttermilk battered shrimp had not been properly peeled and cleaned, and the Chesapeake fries served with them were so over-seasoned they were inedible. The pesto salmon pasta barely had any salmon, mushrooms, or artichoke hearts in it, just mostly sauce and pasta. The french fries served with one filet Mignon were heavily salted making them unpleasant to eat. Not once did the server ask how the dinner was. All in all a expense and disappointing dinner.
1st time in this restaurant and gosh. I was so disappointed. The food is excellent. Compliments to the chefs. But the service is horrendous. I literally sat there for 15 mins. Not even water was offered to me. Im not the type that goes and yells at people for service so i kept waiting until finally someone decided to help. The service was not any better after that but you I don't have time to write a book here. What a shame since I really like the food. But you won't see me back.
We were celebrating an anniversary and were disappointed in the food. The calamari appetizer has veggies in it and the the sweet potato slices weren’t cooked. Also the dish wasn’t really seasoned well. It needed salt. Then the spinach that was served with the blackened swordfish was way too salty that I couldn’t eat it. We won’t be going there for awhile. The quality has really gone down hill.
Jerry was our waiter. He was so personable and attentive. He made us feel special and by how he interacted with his other tables I could tell he really goes beyond just getting your order right. Ask for his area if he’s working that day. The food was delicious and plentiful . We were there during their special meal for Veterans. Thank you so much for your support of those who have and do serve in our Armed Forces. We also love their oyster Happy Hour on Wednesday’s.
Thank you for the Veteran's Day meal; such a wonderful thing you do every year.
The one low mark for Ambiance was because our "booth" was directly across from the entry to the kitchen so we observed every entry and exit from the kitchen. Maybe next time the manager/waiter could close the drapes. Thank you again.
I was there for veterans recognition and first want to thank you for recognizing us veterans. The only constructive comment I would make is that our waiter seemed a little slow and not able to multi task very well. Other than that we had a very good experience
I would not return. Biggest turn off, besides bad service, was that they advertise free meal for veterans and gold star family members (parents and spouse) on veterans day, but still charged us (active duty member and spouse). If you don't want to give free meals, that's fine just don't advertise it that way.
My wife and I went here for our 2 year wedding anniversary and it was amazing! The atmosphere is great and you feel nice and secluded at your table. The dinning staff was friendly and helpful. The food was absolutely amazing. We could not have been happier with our choice for dinner.
We waited over 20 minutes after we were seated before I went in search of a waiter. I found a waiter from another spot in the dining room and he took care of us. He was an excellent server, and I appreciated his willingness to assume responsibility for our table. From that point on our dinner was perfect - food, service, ambience.
