I would have given the service a 5 if it weren’t for one of the hostesses complaining that they close in an hour behind me while I was waiting for my boyfriend to park as if I couldn’t hear her. Other than that, my waiter was amazing and accommodating and it was a nice romantic environment for my Boyfriend and I. Food was top notch and I would definitely return.

Food was good but nothing spectacular. My drink - Ruby something - different and refreshing. I recommend it if you like grapefruit. Filet mignon on was good, but I’ve had better. Wasn’t unhappy at all, but could have been better.

The staff is very courteous. The food was delicious and service was excellent. I was impressed that Dan the manager came to our table and asked if everything was all right. Very nice young man.

The food tasted good but lacked presentation, felt rushed and very very small portion. It was just ok. We will not go back.

I made reservations for Valentines Day for 12. It was not very busy but our waitress was doing so many tables we waited each time for anything. My soup came out cold, our meals came out cold & the fish was not fully cooked. We sent the fish back (mind you a $44 meal) cold & not cooked. Completely disgusted my husband didn't even want to eat anything else. They took the meal off but that was not the point! This was our chance to get a date in while the children were in school. My meal was ok but I definitely have had better. We are planning another valentines date, since this place didn't work out!!! We will not be returning.

I went for the first time for my birthday. The overall vibe was nice. It was pretty noisy, and we were seated by the kitchen so it was especially loud, but still tolerable. We really enjoyed our server Natalie. She was such a sweetheart, and was very attentive. Everything tasted really good. The only downside was, our main course wasn't very hot but it was particularly busy. I also wish the portions were a bit larger for the price but overall, we would definitely return.

Honestly for the amount of money we spent, I thought the food would be better. My husband loved his steak, but my son and I both ordered seafood, and we were not impressed at all.

Disappointing. We've been to McCormick and Schmicks previously and had positive experiences. This time my husband had the clam chowder and it was too salty. We split the Salmon with Saffron butter. It said it was wild Salmon but it very much looked farm raised. It was floating in plain butter with a small ring of Saffron butter around the plate. On my almost last bite of food, I thought there was a pin bone in my mouth and instead pulled out a shard of metal likely from a grill brush. We showed the manager and he offered dessert which we exchanged for a round a drinks. I assumed as a given they would take the Salmon dish off our bill but they did not. It was scary to realize what could have happened if I inadvertently swallowed that piece of metal. I realize accidents can happen but the overall lack of concern means we likely won't be coming back.
