Seafood
The history of McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurants began when Bill McCormick purchased Jake's Famous Crawfish Restaurant located in Portland, Oregon, and brought the more than 100-year-old landmark back to life. When asked the secret of how he revitalized a restaurant on the brink of closing, McCormick says, "I like nothing better than being a good host." Part of the managerial talent McCormick tapped was Doug Schmick, a management trainee. The two formed a partnership in 1974, creating Traditional Concepts, a precursor to today's McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurants. In 1979, they opened the original McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant in Portland, Oregon. The combination of an open imagination and a respect for tradition are what makes McCormick & Schmick's the classic and successful business that it is today.

    Second time coming here and was better than the first but still didn’t feel like it was worth the money. Our first time was several years ago and we were very upset. This time my wife’s parents wanted to go so we gave it another shot. At first the waiter said they were out of several items including asparagus. Due to that I had to change my mind on which meal I wanted. The waiter was very monotone and didn’t really seem like she enjoyed her job and no personality. Once the food came, it tasted very good. The fish dinner did come with asparagus and when I asked the waiter she said “well we were out yesterday so figured today as well”. So overall the food was good but service just missed the spot and I didn’t feel like a 330$ meal for 4 people was worth it.

    I went for the restaurant week special with a group of friends. We all wanted the CAB top serloin steak for our entree and were informed that they were out of it. The waitress did not inform us that they were out of the top serloin until we had already put our 1st course order in. Our waitress did not give us bread despite her asking us if we wanted any until after we finished our appetizers and had to request it again because she forgot. Our wine took way too long to come. The waitress informed us that the soup for restaurant week came in a bowl and was sizeable, but it was not at all it came in a small cup. I got the calamari which was over cooked, but the flavor was good. I opted I get the chicken Marsala instead of the serloin and was extremely disappointed. It looked like a microwave meal. It was served with mashed potatoes that required a lot of salt & pepper as well as green beans. The chicken came as 2 full breasts with maybe 3 mushrooms on top. There was little to no sauce on my chicken or mushrooms. Not worth the price at all, I would save your money and try somewhere else.

    I stopped in before an evening meeting to grab dinner. It was Restaurant Week so I ordered off of that menu. The food was exquisite and if I had time I’d go again tonight! Everything was cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly. Conner was a very attentive server and very nice.

    We had a very enjoyable evening with our group before a show. Our waiter, Rex, was extremely attentive and pleasant. He addressed our every need. The food was delicious. The only thing that could have made the experience better was valet parking (which was unavailable at this restaurant).

    The steaks at M&S are exceptional. My wife and I split a 13 oz ribeye and it was still more than enough. That gives us the ability to have an appetizer (great selection of oysters) and a salad. Bartenders are craftsman and will make you a cocktail with the components you like. Our server was terrific. We had a show to go to and they got us very smoothly out in time. Highly recommend them!

    Ordinarily I'd stay a mile away from Downtown Pittsburgh on NYE, but I needed one more night to maintain my Marriott Bonvoy status, so we decided to book at the Westin. I searched for a place to eat downtown & decided on M&S, as I prefer steak & the wife prefers seafood. Place was pretty crowded & noisy, with a 15-person party right next to us. Couldn't even hear each other speak, so I've gotta downgrade for atmosphere. I get that it's NYE, but it wasn't OUR party, so why can't they be put in a private room? On to the food. I got the 8 Oz. filet mignon prix fixe meal that included walnut salad & dessert (cheesecake). No complaints on mine. The wife went for the salmon pesto. Very disappointing. I've attached a photo of what it looks like on M&S Facebook page, & what she got. By this time we'd waited awhile & were hungry so we said nothing (we actually hadn't seen the FB photo before she started eating). There was very little pesto & vegetables. We actually thought they'd brought the wrong dish. It looked like salmon Mac & Cheese. Mostly pasta swimming in a sort of Alfredo sauce. I had to say how disappointing it was, & to their credit, they did ask if we wanted something else & took the dish off the bill. By then she was full so we declined. Regarding service. Our server was very quick with taking our order & explaining menu specials. A bit too quick. We felt a bit rushed. He also did not check on our satisfaction with the food until well after others had delivered to our table. On the plus side, he was very understanding & apologetic, as was the manager, when we expressed our disappointment. They would have tried to make it right. Overall I'd have to say disappointing, & not what we expected.

    We have been to M&S numerous times while living in Georgia. We always had a very pleasant experience all the way around. We decided to eat here for New Years Eve. Let’s start… 1. We had to ask for bread 2. We ordered soup and it took so long for it to come 3. My lobster bisque was not good…it had an oily film on top even when I stirred it. My husband said they put too much butter in it. 4. He had the New England Clam chowder and it was unusually spicy. 5. The bred was extremely hard. We couldn’t eat it. We requested another basket but it was hard also. 6. We received our meals while we were still eating our soup (that tells you how long it took the soup to come). 7. My lobster was slightly over cooked and some of my potatoes were dry and hard. They also had no seasoning (just fried potatoes). 8. I went to the restroom and there were paper towels on the floor by the sink. 9. The first stall I went into was awful. I was appalled. The next one was ok but it was hard to get into it because the door swung in the same direction as the other stall door and they kept locking. 10. I turned on the water to wash my hands and it was bone chilling cold. I have NEVER felt water that cold in any restroom I’ve ever been in. 11. The dry towels were just sitting on the counter thrown across the back of the counter. We did not have a pleasant experience but I do realize it was New Yeats Eve but we expected a much better experience for the price of the food.

    It was a busy holiday so I understand some things might not be as perfect as they would be on other nights. However, there were a lot of undesirable little things that added up over the course of the evening. It was really hot in the dining room. Our waitress was nowhere to be found for much of the dinner while we saw other table’s waitresses much more frequently. Drinks took forever to be delivered to the table. Water glasses emptying. Our entrees were served separately on messy plates. We had to pack our own leftovers. For such an expensive upscale restaurant, I expected better service. With all of that being said, the food was really delicious and the waitress was apologetic and friendly. As stated, I know the restaurant was packed so I will return on a quieter night to see if service is better.

    The hostess was very attentive she noticed after 10 minutes thar our server never came so she took care of everything from our drink order to our food order. The server finally came around when we were near dessert and said I’m sorry I’m just fett my around to here and was more concerned that i had the wrong type of glass for spring water as opposed to the tap water?? And then brought us the wrong dessert! I left a note on the receipt that the hostess should get the tip not the server

    Trying to pass itself off as a big league restaurant but it just isnt. Overpriced food that was good but not as good as the price tag. Bored, forgettable service that bungled our order. Not a horrible experience, just not delivering at the level it purports itself to be.

    My husband & I went to MS for Christmas Eve. It was so well organized, service was excellent. We never felt rushed. The food ( filet & mahi-mahi) were excellent. It has been a long time since I have had a filet that melts in my mouth. I tried one of the new non-alcoholic drinks, which was excellent. We will definitely be going back again.
