It was freezing! I wish I’d read the other reviews from all week that said the same thing. Mngr came (after we asked server about the cold) to explain their 5 heating systems have not been working completely all week! It’s 30 degrees outside! WTH! Steak was undercooked, server didn’t come to check until we were finished and rest. was not busy. Spinach was cold. Dessert brownie was hard and stale. Luckily it was restaurant week and we still paid over $300 for a bad experience. Maybe offer complimentary coffee and tea to the frozen patrons. Will not be going back

We went for restaurant week and it was delicious! The table had the Cobia fish, blackened chicken, and CAB steak, plus lobster tails. All were wonderful and our server was friendy and attentive. Two of us ordered raw and fried oysters, but infortunately they were out of most oysters. The raw oysters that we did get were absolutely delicious (and that shave iced sauce was incredible!) Definitely recommend.

The food was amazing although my boyfriend didn’t like the chicken linguine. He loved the mixed field greens salad.💯

I can tell the restaurant is extremely understaffed. The manager was kind of rude & they don’t seat you until ALL of the party is there (only missing 1 out of 5). It was not really a welcoming environment. I’ve had better service at cheaper restaurants. I’ll never go back to this one again. My server was nice.

Unfortunately, my six guests and myself were very unhappy with the experience we had at McCormick & Schmick’s on Saturday, January 15th. As soon as we arrived and was seated, we felt how cold it was in the diningroom. We expressed our concern to our waitress who told us that they were working on fixing it, which never happened while we were there. The waitress went on to say that she had two pair of pants on trying to stay warm in there, which seemed odd to us unless this had been a problem before that day. When our waitress came around to take our beverage orders, we again expressed how cold it was and all but one of us elected to get some hot tea to try to warm up. To our dismay, when the containers of water was brought to us, it was lukewarm. We expressed this to our waitress who blatantly told us that the water was hot when it was poured into the containers but carrying it to our table -with it being cold- caused it to be not hot with it being cold in there. That was unbelievable to us as we were not that far from the kitchen. She said short of putting each cup in the microwave and bringing each cup out individually, the water would not be hot. That would have been a nice gesture to do to meet the customer’s need but our waitress was not extremely friendly so it was not likely that she was going above and beyond to keep her customer’s happy. We were in awe, here we are sitting in a well known popular restaurant and we cannot even get a HOT cup of tea to warm us up while sitting in their cold restaurant. Totally unbelievable! With the help of a male waiter who was helping our waitress at our table, on two other occasions we were brought hot water for tea that still was lukewarm ( they could not get that water hot for whatever reason). The third time water for tea was brought it was a little bit hotter than the previous two times, bit it still was not hot as water for tea should be and is everywhere else.

We arrived for a nice lunch before seeing a show with my daughter. A belated Christmas present. We were seated to a freezing cold dining room. Our food arrived the same … cold. We couldn’t even take our coats off. I kept asking the waitress why is it so cold? Her answer….. we are cold too. I then order a HOT tea to only be told that it probably will not be cold because they just served another table and because it is so cold in the restaurant it’s making everything cold. It’s only at that point that we were told the heat was NOT working but they are working on it !! I can’t believe that when we walked into the restaurant that the hostess didn’t tell us this so we had a choice whether to eat in the cold. Shame on them for not being upfront and because of that I will never go back !

Very disappointing experience for lunch today. There was nobody at the host stand when we arrived, and after waiting for a few minutes, the woman who had been standing in the kitchen chatting finally came over to seat us. We were seated in the bar area under a vent blowing cold air (it’s January). Nobody came to take our drink/food orders for at least 20 minutes. My drink was so sweet it was almost undrinkable, my husband’s was extremely watered down. We ordered the restaurant week 3 course menu. I was brought the wrong appetizer initially. My husband asked for his salad with no olives, it was full of olives. The rest of the food was ok, but for lunch at a “fine dining establishment” it was disappointing. The bartender who served us was very nice, however that only goes so far. The bathrooms were also disgusting - reminded me of a public restroom in a train station.

Also - the manager was holding job interviews to work in the restaurant a few tables over from where we were eating which was distracting and awkward.

Did not hit the mark today.

First time dining in the Phila location and was not disappointed. From our friendly hostess to wait staff, everyone was extremely welcoming and efficient. Although a bit pricey, the experience was worth the money. Certainly will return.

The hostess was friendly!! The waiter threw my food in the trash instead of putting the rest in a to go container. He said the dessert was on the house but it was already included in the meal . (Resteraunt week).

Our server was Martin and he was really great! However, before being seated the host made us feel like old friends or like regulars. The dining experience was great from beginning to end. We tipped a little higher because of Martin’s excellent service. I thought because it was Restaurant Week, the food would not be up to par. Everything was delicious and nice and hot. Well done Center City, Philadelphia McCormick & Schmick!!

All was quite classy--except the music. 1) It was too loud for a class restaurant. 2) The beat of the music didn't fit the intended refinement of our stay at the restaurant. It was too jumpy. A more genteel selection of background music would have coincided better with the ambience. I'm not referring to classical music, but selections of soft, Spanish guitar or quiet renditions of Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, etc. would have been appreciated.

We had horrible food and terrible service. The fire alarm went off for about 30 minutes while we all sat there and the flashing sirens continued for an additional 15 minutes. The salmon was inedible.

My only complaint was that it was so cold in the restaurant. I wasn’t too far from the kitchen so I thought I’d get a little heat coming from there but even that wasn’t enough, I had to keep my coat on the entire time. Other than that the food and service was great.

Beer was warm
Fries were barely warm and sitting to long under heat lamp
Steak was over cooked, sent back and the second steak was over cooked and the server agreed. Manager would not come out to address issue and the server kept apologizing. Not her fault but bad way to handle a problem.

We waited 10 minutes at the door before a hostess came over. My vodka martini was more vermouth than vodka. Food was nothing to talk about. Will not go back.
