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.

    Great downtown restaurant so near to the Cultural District. You never miss the curtain time when you dine at McCormick and Schmick’s. The food is always amazing and the service is top notch. Dinner and the theater in Pittsburgh always means McCormick & Schmick’s for us!

    We visited for Restaurant Week and to celebrate a birthday. Food was very good and service was wonderful. Waiter was enthusiastic, informative and friendly. My dining partner was honored with free Creme Brulee for her birthday . She stated that it was the best she had ever had. Since dessert came with the meal, the waiter suggested that she take the pie she ordered home. She raved about that this next day! I had mahi mahi, which was well prepared and delicious.

    A party of 7 with my coworkers. We received excellent service. Everyone said their meal was delicious. Recommend by our server, I had the Chef's Choice Crab and Shrimp Stuffed Salmon with brie cheese, artichoke hearts, and sundried tomatoes. It was one of the best things I ever ate.

    It was nice. I was a little disappointed with the quantity of my food. I ordered fried shrimps & for me my potion was not they same compared to my boyfriend who ordered the exact same thing. I should had said something but I let it go. The other couple with us noticed as soon as my plate came. Also the shrimp was kinda hard.

    Our first visit and we were impressed. My husband's ribeye was tender and flavorful, and I absolutely loved the salmon with pesto gnocchi. The only caveat is that it is Downtown, but garage parking was nearby.

    In general, this is a self-proclaimed ‘seafood’ restaurant chain based in Baltimore (as I recall) but this branch does not know how to cook seafood. Before-dinner drinks were way overpriced - likely because the bartender didn’t know how to make the drink I requested, a Nuts and Berries with cream. Salads were way over-dressed. I ordered the mahi-mahi and my daughter got the Chilean Sea Bass and both were overcooked and dry. We couldn’t even finish the meal. This is my second experience with overcooked seafood from this restaurant chain. Last time it was scallops that were overcooked hockey pucks. We will not be giving this restaurant chain another chance to spoil our evening dinner.

    For the price, food and service was just ok. Waitress never refilled our water, forgot the bread, and didn't come around much. It wasn't very busy, so that wasn't the reason. There was nothing outstanding about the food. For the price, I would expect more.

    There should be more variety on the dinner menu to choose from if you don’t like the two choices that comes with your main meal for example if you don’t like mashed potatoes you can choose a baked potato or fries the vegetables the same way if you don’t like green beans you can choose asparagus or another vegetable at no extra cost to dinner price

    A nice restaurant and a good (not great) experience. First, we weren’t told of unavailable items until we ordered them. Understandable in today’s conditions, but how long does it take to reprint paper menus? Or maybe train the servers to mention it up front. I was surprised by the self service pay QR code, seems a service most suitable for quick service restaurants. I used it and there was no obvious place to add my rewards number. Our waitress took the check after I had paid, but before I could mention it to her. I told my guest that they will have no idea I paid- and sure enough she thought she may have lost my credit card. Mutual confusion is not a good service situation. Food was good, and the service was efficient.

    It was a great place to celebrate a 60th birthday… even if they were out of the special dessert that I chose (and then charged for its replacement). The food was awesome and the staff prompt and friendly. Not to be a snob, but I found it weird/off putting to see experience a Saturday night in a Cultural District restaurant filled with nicely dressed as well as t-shirts, ripped shorts, and ubiquitous tattoos after the Kenny Cheney debacle had already started at Heinz Field.

    Service was very poor. Brought wrong order, forgot bread, didn’t clear dishes between courses, and we had to ask for a wine menu after our appetizer course. Food was Luke warm when received. COVID excuses are wearing thin. For the price, this was simply not worth it.
