Seafood
Featuring seasonal seafood, tender steaks and signature oysters, our commitment to freshness is reflected in our daily changing menu. From our seasonal Wild Isles Salmon caught from the coast of Scotland's Shetland Islands, to our Hawaiian Seafood overnighted from the Honolulu Fish Auction, and Wild Pacific Northwest Salmon pulled from pristine river waters, our menu incorporates regional tastes, farm fresh products, and local and sustainably sourced ingredients wherever possible. With our exclusive line of signature oysters sourced from our own private oyster beds, as well as a fine selection of steaks, soups, salads and pasta dishes, McCormick & Schmick's appeals to the tastes of all diners. Our focus on the true spirit of hospitality only adds to our appeal, making us a popular destination on Veterans Day and Memorial Day, where we honor the military with free meals, as well as an ideal setting for private special occasions, date night and business functions.

Food was overall good, scallops cooked perfectly. But I found everything to be blend, wish it had been seasoned properly. Not a big deal as I can add salt and pepper myself but still wish it had some during the cooking process. Salmon was a little over done and dry. Drinks were tasty and not overly strong. Calamari was very nice, tender meat but crispy outside. Not chewy.

Very nice dinner, cocktails and service. Little on the dim side but that’s alright. Special requested flowers on the table as available on the app, but sadly no flowers. Eh not the end of the world. I would highly recommend and will have dinner again at the restaurant.

The table was dirty I had ask for the server to clean the table. The breading from the calamari was falling off when I was trying to pick it and the breading stayed in the small Sauce container. Had to send the steak back because I have ask for medium well and when I cut into the steak it was bleeding on my plate. The only things that was great was our server Mayson he was always checking on us and asking if we need anything thank you Mayson for taking care of us

Surviving on their name. Got a great seafood tower appetizer and had high hopes. Drinks took 15+ minutes to come out more than once. Steaks came, no steak knives. Mine was cold after just receiving it and trying to cut it with a bread knife. Table was formerly sat at by a family, and there was several crayons, napkins and an abundance of crumbs under the table. Overall thought it was an over priced waste. Been to the one in Chicago, Far superior

We were there for Valentine's Day, even though it was busy the service was timely and efficient.
Our waiter, Joseph, was excellent and the food and presentation was exceptional.
Definitely a five star evening for us!

We had a wonderful time for our Valentine's dinner. The thing that impressed my wife and I the most was our waitress Christina, and the manager Jenna upon arriving.

They forgot our appetizer and bread bowl. The meal was underwhelming. The drinks were not great either. Maybe time to retire this chain.

we started by being seated at a dirty table. when we alerted a server we were moved. once moved, the service was terrible. Our server told us we would get bread but forgot. we asked a manager passing by for bread. He brought the bread but no plates. When he came back with plates, he only brought 3 so we were one short! Our food came before our oysters. we told them to take them off the check. when we got the check, they were still on the bill, my sons lemonade ( which came with his meal) was billed. The whole experience was awful. we will never go back.

Order 2simple dishes Stuffed salmon and the chef special which was a mix of seafood over pasta Waited an hour and 25 minutes for cold food and s**t service ! WASTE of TIME & Money!
The manger is a joke After bringing me my check and it being adjusted he comes back with the cold food and my card 10 minutes later and asked me if I’m sure I don’t want it or if I like to take it with me, The pasta was like rubber it was sitting so long it literally had more bounce then the Super Bowl halftime show and the sea food was cold as ice!!!!

WILL NOT RETURN !!

Nice subtle environment got there a little towards closing Soon as my food came out they were packing everything up so I felt like I needed to rush and eat, but overall I give this restaurant a 10

That’s one of the worst experience ever.
The food was awful. Asparagus was old and chewy. Tuna (main course) no comments. Sushi with seaweed salad (at the menu cucumber salad with sesame) but that was seaweed salad with one! ONE slice of cucumber and 2 slices of red onion.
Don’t waist ur time and money.

I had a birthday memorial dinner for my brother. We wished that our seating was not where there was heavy traffic. The seating was extremely tight. They were not accommodating at all. I had a late reservation, our waitress and food was good. I had an out of town guest that was not permitted in. Book your dinner party early! Lesson learned! Thanks McCormick and Schmick's!

Ordered a Filet Mignon and it was not good.
Not easy to cut, somewhat stringy texture.
I was very disappointed.

The next night I had a Filet Mignon at Christine’s in Yardley, PA and it was excellent in both taste and texture.

I arrived late for my reservation because of very heavy traffic. FRIDAY night is popular for Restaurant WEEK diners. My server MARITZA was great! Good food everything was hot. I will eat at McCormick & Schmicks again. Ate my first meal at M&S 25 years ago.

We went for restaurant week to try out the menu but was not impressed. Food was a little bland. Very small portions. Some dishes better than others. Short ribs were good. Chocolate pie was good but blueberry crisp was disappointing. There was no crisp and ice cream melted so fast it was more like blueberry soup. Drinks were good. Probably would not return for the regular menu.

Took a friend here for Philly DCC Restaurant Week. I was very disappointed especially since I was trying to show it off to my friend. Her coffee was not fresh to start.
Then her soup was only luke warm.
My appetizer was very good.
She did not like her salmon felt it was over done. At 1:30 they where already out of one of the dessert choices. When waiter brought the tea box it was full with only 5 choices of tea 4 of them decaf type.
When I ask if they had Earl Grey waiter said maybe in the other box, he did bring that when he returned.
We did request that the coffee be fresh for our desert portion of the meal. I know that the meals are less for restaurant week but I have felt this was a time to showcase the restaurant's to new clients. Guess this it why was easier to get a booking here then some of the other places. Was very disappointed.

The food was actually really good the booth was nice and private. Here’s the issue so after paying for valet $22 oringinally going for restaurant week for the first time and first time eating here. The restaurant week menu sucked so we ordered from the regular menu. Enjoyed our meal paid the bill with a credit card we tipped in cash. The WAITRESS took it upon herself and added a $24 tip to my card! She stole money from me! This can’t be the first time I reported this the following day when I noticed I haven’t received a call or a refund on what was taken as of yet honestly I didn’t even get an apology when I spoke to the manager and reported this! This sucks I will never return here and if not using cash u shouldn’t go either! Never use a card the staff will steal your money

I wouldn't recommend this establishment during Restaurant Week the Maryland clam chowder taste like canned vegetable soup with a splash of claw crab meat the Chicken Francaise was dried out and cold but I did enjoy the desert
