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.

    Fish tacos were good and an extremely good value. Partner also reported that flatbread was good. Truffle fries were extremely disappointing and OVERPRICED.

    I ordered crab stuffed salmon and my boyfriend had Cobia with shrimp. Both dishes were just okay. Mashed potatoes were watery and not tasty. The restaurant has a dark and quiet vibe. Not very good energy. Our waitress was very nice but the ambiance wasn’t really what we were going for. They were also out of 2/3 oysters on the menu but advertise themselves with an “oysterology” menu. Definitely won’t be back.

    During my first and only visit to McCormick and Schmick's, I had a disappointing experience. Despite being the last seating after the CLO, the kitchen rushed our dinners, resulting in a ruined meal. My dinner guest and I had salads and a mixed drink each. I ordered the bone-out ribeye steak with mashed potatoes covered in lobster sauce. However, upon receiving the steak, it was clear that something was off. The waitress kindly asked me to check the doneness, but unfortunately, the steak was overcooked and lacked any marbling. It seemed more like a NY Strip Steak rather than a ribeye. The dryness of the steak led me to request mushrooms and onions, hoping to salvage the taste, but even those couldn't help. Additionally, the mashed potatoes turned out to be a lobster bisque. Despite the disappointing meal, I decided not to blame the waitress and tipped 25%. I left a note detailing the issue and my contact information, hoping for a manager's acknowledgment, but I never received any response. As a result, I will not be returning to McCormick and Schmick's and cannot recommend it to others.

    I’ve long been a fan of this restaurant chain over the years, & perhaps my observations only apply to the Pittsburgh location. The restaurant felt a little tired with regards to its upkeep. Not dirty, just a bit worn & somehow lacking in personality. It has a more traditional steakhouse vibe to it, but misses the mark in terms of overall aesthetic. Food was good & definitely priced competitively when compared to other establishments. Service was average, but it was Valentines Weekend so perhaps everyone was burnt out due to the volume of business. I’m hoping the new corporate owners reinvest in the brand to return it to its former glory, otherwise I fear there’ll be further consolidation & closures.

    Had 7:30 reservations, there was a line out the door and no one had any idea where to go for walk ins, reservations, check ins. The only way to figure out what was going on was to ask strangers next to me. When we were seated 20 minutes after my reservation time, I was then informed that there was no soda whatsoever and my choice was water. Really? I understand not having every single soda in a can but not a single one? What a joke, I love Ruths, capital grille, Morton's, but after this I probably won't be going back to McCormicks.

    I don’t wanna focus too much on the service because it was Valentine’s Day & they were very busy. The food was very good but I don’t think it was worth the amount we spent. We have been to many restaurants in Pittsburgh and we don’t mind paying for great quality. It just felt a little too expensive to us for the quality of the food. The dessert definitely saved it for me - the best part.

    Overall, the meal was fine. Could not order a soft drink because the carbonization system was down the whole time we were there. Also, when you order "lump" crab cakes you normally expect to see some lump crab meat... especially at that price. These appeared to be all shredded crab meat... disappointing.

    We were in town for a volleyball tournament and after a long day wanted to grab something good for dinner. McCormick and Schmick's typically is pretty good, but we all really enjoyed our dinners. The only negative was my poor son was stuck celebrating his birthday at his older sister's volleyball tournament so when we made the reservation we mentioned it was his birthday. Unfortunately they didn't recognize him in any way at dinner. Not a big deal, we plan on making it up to him soon!

    Giovanna was an excellent server. Meal was well packed and her recommendations were well explained. Food was prepared well and was delicious. The dining areas were much larger than it initially appeared coming in the door and tables were adequately spaced for casual conversation. Decor is a bit dated, but not distracting.
