McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Reston Ratings and Reviews
We went for Thanksgiving. My husband had the traditional meal. It was fine. I ordered king crab legs and they were NOT king crab legs, they were overcooked, dry and very cold when they came out. They come with a pile of potatoes that tasted awful and were greasy. I ordered the salad wedge and it was overpriced for iceburg lettuce and way too much dressing ... very little tomato etc. I was very disappointed in my meal for the money paid. We spent $138 dollars to walk away dissatisfied.
took family from out of town for thanksgiving dinner. approached the host station and waited three minutes before we were acknowledged (person was on the phone then hung up only to engage in a personal discussion with another server). Food was below expectations...think high school cafeteria.. way overpriced. Service was very slow (and we were one of 6 tables in there). the seating was adequate- for a party of 6, we had our own area.
Food was good this time but not great. The seared tuna special was over cooked and almost no pink left. The mussels were good with a spicy sauce as was the wedge salad .
The salmon special was ok as the salmon seemed a bit overdone .
Some Snafus with the waiter forgetting a side and overall general malaise with the service.
Restaurant was practically empty and food took a really long time - came at 1:00 and food did not arrive until 2:05. I think they had to catch the fish. I had the Tilapia and it came stuffed with shrimp and the shrimp were these tiny little things that looked liked canned shrimp.
Service was a little slow - busy night because of Veterans' Day special. Food is consistently good/very good here which is why we come back. That night it was a bit loud for my taste - would prefer to be able to have a quiet conversation over dinner. Again, probably a bit unusual for a sunday night but the Vets special clearly was bringing in the business.
Menu is always one of our favorites - good variety, well prepared.
McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Rest. hit another “home run” on our most recent visit.
There were 6 in our party - and EVERYONE was very pleased with their meal. We had a variety - Seafood, steak, salads, etc. All excellent.
We highly recommend this restaurant for a “won’t let you down” place to take family & friends.
Kudos and thanks to all the staff at McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurant in Reston.
Very much appreciated all that you did.
Great Food & Service! We were seated on-time based on our reservation. We were there for the Veteran's Day meal offer. The waitress had a pleasant smile for us and explained all our options. We were served quickly and everything came out in the proper order (drinks/appetizers first, then main meal). I enjoyed the ambiance and would recommend the Reston location to anyone.
My wife and I went there for their annual Veteran's Day special (actually they do it the weekend before, making it possible to not have to choose between them and someone closer to home. We've been to both McCormick and Schmick's and M&S Grill before, so the atmosphere was not a surprise, for food was outstanding. The bottom line is that it is a bit pricey. We only had to pay for our desert and the one glass of wine we each had, which as still $50. I always tip based on the actual value of what was served, so it was pretty healthy.
Once again, another quality meal at M&S ... delicious seafood ... four different entrees and an appetizer ... hit it out of the park. However, the cost for 3 adults and 1 child, with non-alcoholic drinks and one appetizer, and with two free adult meals due to a promotion was $120. Why? Part of the reason was the outrageous price for non-alcoholic drinks. $3.40 for an ice tea. $3.40 for lemonade. $4.00 for Arnold Palmers. $1.25 per refill for everything but the iced tea, and never mentioned. So the way to do this place these days and to save yourself $20 (or to pour that $20 back into the awesome food) is to drink water. Of course, we were never offered water and stared at 4 empty water glasses the whole time. Of course, we weren't staring really, as we thought we were getting free refills of the pricey beverages we purchased. Well, live and learn. Still recommend the restaurant for the outstanding food and friendly service.
The waiter, Mark, needs an attitude adjustment and quickly. He acted as though he was doing us a real favor to just be there at all. He never smiled but had somewhat a disgusted look on his face the entire time we were at the table.
Put in other words, Mark spoiled the evening. Food was so, so. Caesar salad bland and blackened chicken pasta was extremely dry and basically tasteless .
My wife and I go out most Saturday evenings for date night. We cover the spectrum and like variety when it comes to our dinning experiences. We had been given a $50 gift certificate over a year ago and figured we give it a try. To be fair, we both love the steaks from Ruth Chris, but this is not their review. The host started off the visit well by having our table ready and was engaging. The server was fine, but decided for some reason not to provide us with the bread basket that everyone else was getting; I wondered what we would do with plates. We ordered seared ahi tuna as a starter and that's when the visit really spiraled down. What come out was old, dried up tuna sushshimi. Not even sure why she did not notice that it was not served tuna. The first bite was the last; my wife spit hers out...it was rancid. When the server checked back, she returned it to the kitchen and we asked not to have it replaced. The dining room manager came by and removed the cost from our bill. After serving us rancid fish, I would have expected to have at least Bombay Saphire and tonic comped, but nothing. The server was pretty much non-existent for the remainder of our visit and we left after completing our main courses quietly and totally disappointed with a restaurant that is not only established, but considered to be somewhat upper end. There are lots and lots of restaurants in No. VA, we will passing on returning to this one.
Lunch visit, it was quiet, the service was excellent. Started with the calamari which was delicate and crispy. The $3 bloody mary was amazing, one of the best I ever had. Finished up with the crab cake and fresh vegetables. Overall a very pleasant experience.
Food was tasty. Though, the lobster bisque was a bit too salty. The salad, which I ordered with grilled salmon, was delicious, nutritious and filling. My husband enjoyed his ribeye steak. The lobster mash potatoes he ordered were tasty, but nothing to write home about. My absolute favorite however, was the Cucumber Mint Lemonade.
The reception staff was very accommodating, we were seated rather quickly. Our waitress could have been a little more welcoming and friendly. Unfortunately, she was not the most attentive or hardly ever had a smile on her face, which could possibly be explained by her being Eastern European. It might have been a cultural thing.
Overall, the ambiance was nice. The low noise level allowed for a pleasant conversation with my husband and an enjoyable dinner experience.
My wife and I were out for our anniversary and were very disappointed with every aspect of our visit.
Our waitress warned us away from the wahoo, so we both chose the plank roasted salmon. It came out watery and devoid of flavor (water squirted across the table when I put my fork into it). We also ordered two slices of upsidedown walnut-apple pie for dessert; the pie tasted fine, but her slice was at least 25% smaller than mine.
We had requested a booth, which we were given, but that led our waitress to forget about us. A promised refill of our bread was never received, and she completely forgot/ignored us when it came time to pay. She circulated the dining room in a clockwise direction, never glacing to her left, where she would have seen me waving to get her attention to request the check. Our dessert plates were already empty when she brought the check, yet it was nearly 15 minutes before she picked it up, and that was only after I shouted at her by name to get her attention as she rushed past us.
I had been seriously considering bringing my check to the hostess stand to be processed, but that likely would have been for naught. I intended to mention our displeasure with the hostess on the way out, but she was too engrossed in her cell phone to look up or acknowledge me as I approached her station, so I turned away and left.
This was the third consecutive year my wife and I celebrated ur anniversary at McCormick & Schmick, and it'll be our last, as this was my second consecutive disappointment at their restaurants (K Street in March). It seems this chain has lost its way.
The restaurant has 0 view, it is hidden on a back street, very unnoticable entrance. The decor is not original, the nooks are some wooden boxes with a curtain, supposedly for more privacy that almost completely isolates you; art decor is very ordinary... Best service was given by the manager Amanda who was able to resolve a very unpleasant conflict with a server.
This restaurant once stood head and shoulders above the heavy competition. The decline has been gradual and uneven, the kitchen occasionally fluffing a dish, the wait staff friendly and engaging even when harried. The failure was complete at dinner, the swordfish dull, the rockfish lackluster, none of the McCormick & Schmick creativity apparent on either plate. The waitress? Harried, overburdened and seemingly working most of a large room, especially the larger tables and booths. The wait staff is constantly changing. Neither of us enjoyed dinner and we’re unlikely to return.
