We celebrated our stepmother’s 80th birthday there. We had a private booth which made it fun and cozy. The server was new and a bit nervous but the General Manager and Host helped out and it was a team effort. We had a great night!

I would have given a 5 star review but service was not so great. We waited too long to get all of our food. We didn’t start eating our main course until after one hour. My youngest daughter had a hard time waiting for her food. My husband been there a couple times before and he says his experience was the same. The restaurant itself wasn’t even too busy. We do hope service is faster next time we come.

After a long absence I looked forward to coming back to one of my favorite haunts. I was disappointed. The food was so-so (dry fish and smaller portion); decent service, but could have been better; higher prices; dull ambiance. I hope it regains it's panache, because it certainly didn't have it when we dined.

McCormick & Schmick's was excellent. The staff was outstanding. The salad and Hawaiian Big Eye Tuna dishes were excellent. The birthday surprise for my wife was unexpected and much appreciated.

Love the elegant, sophisticated ambiance. The background music was pleasant and quiet enough for normal voice conversation. The service was friendly, knowledgeable, and timely. The food was wonderful and as ordered. They cooked my cobia fish perfectly and my husband seared tuna as well.

The four of us LOVE the private booths, which give us the ability to actually hear each other easily, and it creates and great ambience.

Food and service top-notch, so while the prices are not fantastic, they are appropriate ($250 for 4 people, one drink each and one salad or starter each).

We are members of the club that gives benefits for birthdays, frequent visits, etc, and it's worth it.

Food was great, enjoyed the ambiance. Waiter was beyond brusque. He would be gone for 20-30 minutes and wouldn’t come back or answer any questions and when he did come back, he would say one word and literally run off before we could say anything or ask for things.

We had the most amazing time! We celebrated our son’s birthday. Food was amazing!! No long waits for food. Appetizers, entrees and dessert were well prepared and and very tasty. We usually have leftovers to take home but everything’s was eaten. It was too good. Ryan went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and happy. We will be back!!

Good food, spotty service. Seemed like there was a disconnect between the kitchen and the wait staff. Dishes and drinks took a long time to arrive. Maybe they are short staffed due to the pandemic or something.

I don't really have much more to say. The food was great -- steaks (NY strip and filet mignon), shrimp, salads, desserts. Local draft IPA from Bike Lane was amazing. Service was great (my wife thought too slow, but rest of us thought it was leisurely, just what we wanted for a birthday outing). Really great experience. All the help was so personable and professional. Free parking nearby. We'll be back!!

Great place to go. The manager, Ryan, is outstanding. Our waitress Taylor was very kind and accommodating to our large party which included three different families with a toddler! We were a handful. However, every course took an unusually long time to come out of the kitchen (even the salads and desserts) which is the only reason I'm not giving them 5 stars for this visit.

We are new to the area and it was our first time in that particular restaurant, which was not crowded. Sadly, our waitress did not write down our order and English was not her first language. My husband's dinner was not at all what he had ordered even after he had pointed it out to her on the menu when ordering (he was not asking for any substitutions or special accommodation). She then almost argued with him as to what he had ordered instead of immediately taking it back to be fixed. We wound up eating separately since it took another 20 minutes to get the correct order. We will never return to this restaurant.

Twenty years ago, McCormick and Schmick was the epitome of excellence. Now, meh. We were seated at a table the was DIRTY. I noticed it, the person who seated us did not. After I mentioned it, the host peered at the table and while we were seated there, cleaned it off with a few scrunched up paper towels. No cleaning solution. Yuck. Drinks were ordered. Took a long time to get them. Martini not very cold. Server was nice. Food pretty good. Like last time I was there, it was just..... medium. Sorry. Don't think I'll be back.

Evan was absolutely amazing as a waiter. There’s limited seating outside in front, but we were able to get a table & the weather was beautiful. Oysters Rockefeller, Apple pie w/ walnut crust & cinnamon ice cream, & rockfish (order with topping on side)were all great!

This was probably the best meal we have had at McCormick & Schmick. we initially had a issue with noise from a customer 2 tables away but the staff quickly relocated us to another table and we had a very peaceful meal.
The last few times we were there they did not have the apple cinnamon pie - but I requested it this time in advance and they had it.
Very very good meal!

I spent close to $300 for a party of four. The quality of the food was substandard. The appetizer tasted like it had been sitting out for hours, the fish was dry. I wasn't very pleased.
