I have had the pleasure of dining at your downtown location several times. It is always a great experience. The service is excellent- friendly staff, courteous , attentive but not intrusive, and willing to accommodate requests . The restaurant is lovely. Everything is classy, well-maintained, and of course immaculate. The food is excellent. I have never been disappointed with any selection. It comes in a timely manner, is artfully displayed, and the portions are generous but not overly so. I look forward to my next opportunity to return.

We go here often when we are attending concerts at Heinz Hall. This time the experience wasn’t that good. I think our waiter forgot about us. Four tables that came in behind us had drinks before we were even waited on. The table behind us that came in 10 minuets after us were eating when we got our drinks. The food was ok but not the usual great food we have enjoyed often. My wife’s shrimp and my steak were over cooked. The stuffed shrimp I got with the steak were good and the drinks from the bar excellent. The waiter did offer us a free dessert because of the problems but we only allowed an hour and a half for dinner so we had to leave for the concert. So, we will try one of the other restaurants in the area next time.

We started with drinks. I had a Tito’s martini muddled with fresh jalapeño and my wife had a Riesling. The waitress suggested that I try some cilantro muddled with the jalapeño for the second drink. This turned out to be fantastic. The jalapeño added some spice and the cilantro added another layer of flavor!!! Thank you Anna.
We started with soup. I had the lobster bisque and my wife the Maryland clam chowder. Both were well enjoyed.
For dinner we both had their Scottish Wilde Isles Salmon specials prepared different ways. My wife grilled with garlic herb butter and I had the pan seared.
My wife wished there was more asparagus and less beets, but thoroughly enjoyed her dish.
I liked the mushroom risotto, tomato confit and herbs that accompanied mine. The risotto and salmon we cooked to perfection.
We finished the meal with splitting the caramelized walnut upside down apple pie with cinnamon ice cream. Also delicious
The meal was thoroughly enjoyed!!!

Quite frankly, I was very upset at the loudness of the restaurant because of the bar, the service was very subpar, and evidently they must’ve messed up the order of my date as her food came out perfect but mine came out cold. There was no management on the floor until there was a problem at the end. Other customers evidently had the same experience as I heard manager being told of same conditions from another table. I couldn’t wait to go to this restaurant but I cannot say that I would go back.

Steak was over cooked and not a great cut of meat for a filet. Blue cheese topping tasted good, yet was as though it had sit under heat lamp too long. Drinks were slow to be served.

Service was very good. Overall the food was quite good. We ha an appetizer of calamari which was delicious. My husband had the lobster tails and said they were excellent. I ordered the lump crab stuffed shrimp, what a disappointment. I received six shrimp which had much more stuffing than crab (two didn't have any crab at all). I would advise anyone going to McCromick & Schmick's Seafood not to get the lump crab stuffed shrimp.. On the other hand the potatoes and vegetables were very good.

Overall it was good. Not at the level of Morton's or Ruth Chris which is what I expected.
Red wine's (pinot noir) by the glass were limited. Service was a little slow for some unknown reason and our waiter apologized a couple of times. The apple pie for dessert tasted great overall but about half of the crust's edges were burnt.

I visited this restaurant over the past 2 weeks. My first experience was good and the food was cooked properly with an attentive waiter. Last week, I had dinner with my niece and was treated poorly & sent the food back twice. No apologies and my steak was overdone & the was presented with a new raw steak( medium..so hard to get?). We had a play to attend so time was limited. Staff was rude and offered no relief for bad service. There are so many great seafood & steakhouses in the burgh, you can afford to skip this

Waiter obviously showed a bit impatience with not ordering the first time asked.

Crab Cake sandwich was soggy and very expensive.

The seasoning on the french fries made them inedible (should warn patrons that these are not traditional fries)

All in all very disappointing for the amount of money spent.

Food was very good. Chef was accommodating to make a chicken dish that I saw listed on line menu but didn't see it on the menu in the restaurant. Told server what I wanted but couldn't find on menu and he made a suggestion and it worked out perfectly. Only thing we didn't like was the lighting was dark and very difficult to read the menu. We were there for dinner after the ballet.

We always enjoy McCormick and & Schmick's. Friday night the food and drinks were even better than usual. Our seating was ok, we had a table in the middle of the room, but the booths in the back are the best, especially for special occasions. We were celebrating our anniversary so a quiet booth would have been nice.
