We were seated at 5:00pm, ordered drinks...15 mins go by...nothing. Finally we get our drinks (she forgets my fiancé's shot of Jameson). Then we order our appetizer and dinner. Another 15 minutes go by...no shot...its now 5:40 and we are getting our appetizer...still no shot. 5:50pm our food shows up and we finally get the shot! Service was terrible!!! Our waitress was not attentive at all..

In light of the current pandemic situation, dining outside at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - National Harbor was just right. The atmosphere was energetic. Our server Kryshion was extremely well informed and made some great recommendations. An overall rewarding experience.

Service was awful. We had 5:45 reservations. No one came to our table for 45 min to even acknowledge us. We didn’t leave the restaurant until after 8. We sat outdoors. They had no heat lamps to accommodate the night chill. I did not have a good experience and won’t be back.

The hostess was dismissive, directing me to someone else, but I still had to seat myself.
That was the worse preparation of food I have ever received from an M & S, plus the salmon I ordered was not cooked the way I ordered! Undercooked actually. The potatoes looked like they were from the day before!
In addition, the service was so slow it did make sense to send the food back and reorder.

We was there for our wedding anniversary and had an amazing time! the server (I cannot remember her name) was awesome!, I believe it was ms. Janet, her attention to detail was amazing. The next time we go back I will be asking for her. The food was so good! Truly made our night one to remember.

I normally have exceptional food and service at McCormick & Schmick's. This was my first time at this location and I don’t know that I’ll return. Our waitress was very inattentive and we had to ask for things several times and some things we never received and just stopped asking. The food was good but was served cold. The best part of dinner was dessert. The apple pie was amazing.

Beautiful view of the Potomac River and Woodrow Wilson Bridge from the outdoor patio seating area. Attentive waitress, very good food, and part of the Landry's Rewards Program to get $25 off your meal! A great lunch!

Honestly love going to McCormick. Always fun food, pretty nice staff and great views. They're practicing good social distancing and wait times aren't usually too bad. Food is as good as it was before COVID. Prices are a little higher but it's a good time with family and/or friends when you wanna get out and feel safe while eating a meal. They do take out and indoor seating but indoor has more space from other tables than compared to outdoor seating.

We made early reservations for outside dinning. Our server was prompt and attentive. We had the walnut mixed greens salad with blue cheese. We asked for melted butter which tasted better than the whipped butter served with the sourdough bread. We found the seared scallops and cedar roasted salmon delicious. This was topped of with their famous upside down caramel apple pie. Great dinning as usual.

We missed our reservation but luckily we were able to get on a waiting list and be seated 20 minutes later. Outside dining—nice view. But the seating was a little closer than I expected considering covid. Hostesses were rude but our waiter was very nice. The food was ok.

The food was good once it finally came out, but took quite a while. The service was good as well, but I don’t think the value of the food was worth the cost.

My wife and I had one of the new Seafood Boils. A lot of food and it was seasoned great - could not finish the meal and we took the rest home. We did have dinner outside which was great but I wish the table umbrellas could pivot at the top so we could have blocked the sun more. Also when we received our meal, we were inundated by flies. Not sure if they spray, but some sort of fly deterrent would have been great.

Holiday weekend with visiting family members. We wanted a nice lunch outdoors but everything was reservation only. My only irritation was the limitation of 6 people to a table. I asked if that included a lap child and was told it was @6 humans” no exception. There were 4 adults and 3 kids 1 being a 12 month old. We had to split tables and make two online reservations while standing there but at seating time we were put together at a 6 top. Waitress was awesome, food was great, bumpy road to a reservation....eh it happens sometimes.
