The food was excellent. However the waiter was very poor. He barely spoke to us, was not cordial, and was forgetful about aspects of serving us.

Our party of 3 didn't eat the turkey for Thanksgiving day but the seafood was very good. Had eaten here before but many years ago and had turkey then which, if I remember, was good.

This was a Thanksgiving dinner. There was a large amount of mediocre turkey and small portions of the sides. I would have liked more of the sides and less turkey.


The bone-in ribeye was excellent. However, the carrots and green beans (seasonal vegetables) were underdone.


Service was excellent. We were seated at our reserved time. Our server was cheerful and attentive.

Thanks for the wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner. We will be back next year. The turkey was outstanding. There was so much food we couldn't eat all of it. We would highly recommend Thanksgiving with you.

My family came here for a pre-thanksgiving night out. The food was decent and the restaurant was pretty but the service was TERRIBLE. Our waitress rarely came by to clear our table and refill waters. We had to ask another waiter for help because she was MIA for about 15 minutes. Most likely won’t be back again.

Unfortunately I had a pretty bad experience- we had a party of eight (with a reservation) and were seated at 7PM. We didn't get apps until 8:30PM and the food was pretty bad. Fish was cooked badly and even drinks service was really slow (we only ordered two drinks). Manager came over and acknowledged the problem, but for around $30 a plate, this was not a good experience.

Superlative experience! They take notes! I called to make sure they would print a special birthday menu for my husband and they printed two! With different versions of his name and asked my advice secretly as to which one he would like better!! Then they even gave us a curtained booth for 6 - on a super busy night - to celebrate the birthday properly! The food was to die for and the experience left my hysband wreathed in smiles! Thank you!

After calamari & shrimp kisses appetizers, wife & I had the stuffed salmon. Other two diners had pasta with seafood. All were very good. Calamari is a bargain. Enjoyed the fresh warm bread & butter (we suggest they also offer seasoned olive oil for the bread...we didn't ask, but it might be available upon request). Nice place for an occasion.

The stuffed salmon had no flavor, very blend and that makes it overpriced and small portions just dont help out either. Not impressed by any means. Maybe the fact that it was Veterans Appreciation Event and I was the last reservation and 1500 people were fed already had something to do with the situation.

The food was delicious, the service was excellent, management people were very friendly and attentive. I had the king crab legs, which were split. Ingenious - very easy to eat and they were good. My husband and I had the white chocolate cherry bread pudding, which was to die for. We've eaten at McCormick & Schmick's many times - both for lunch and supper - and the food is always good and the service is terrific. They have a nice variety of foodies on their menu. You can't go wrong by choosing this restaurant for your dining out needs.

I really appreciate the restaurant offering free meal for Vets on Veteran's Day. I understand it makes the restaurant very busy. I was happy my reservation time was mostly honored. The only downside that meal was the food was cold and dried out like it had been sitting out for a long time. Both my meal and my husband's meal were like that.

We went for their salute to Veterans. We go every year. The food and service were excellent as always except our son's kid meal was not good. He would not eat it. After we told our server, he comped us dessert (completely unexpected and unnecessary, in our view) and told a manager who also came by to apologize and who said he believed everyone should be happy with everything. We were very impressed and will be back.

Michael was our server and we were there for the Veterans Day dinner. This restaurant is outstanding in every way-very personalized service and we feel like the staff is family! we celebrate many special family occasions there and the service is the same, no matter which M&S you go to. We went to the Veterans' Day dinner in San Diego 2 years ago and it was so heartwarming to see how the staff treated each elderly veteran as if they were the MOST important person in the world!

My friend and I went for the Veterans special and was treated with respect and actually arrived and got a seat early. This was my first time at this location and is now is a favorite. We both had the Shrimp Scampi with Linguine. It was very delicious. We shared a slice of the Upside Down Candied Walnut Apple Pie Cinnamon Ice Cream and it was so good.

This is a very nice service for veterans on your part. Other restaurants do it, but not as elegant and high end as McCormick and Schmidt, and none with the ambiance of yours.

Food was excellent and the service from the time you enter the establishment through your meal and as you exit is exemplary. Courteous and helpful wait staff, and management that is out and meeting with the customers makes this a favorite place to go. Parking is nearby and free on the weekends. Highly recommended.

My wife's meal was perfection to her. I on the other hand had a VERY bad experience. I requested my meat be cooked medium well. It came back rare. I sent it back and it came back medium rare. By then my wife has half through her meal. I ate it because I didn't want my wife to eat her meal then have to wait on me. For the cost, it was an extravagantly bad meal. To top it off, the waiter was inexperienced and wrote down something completely different than my preference for the side items. How do green beans become spinach and mushrooms? Especially after validating what I spoke. I love raw spinach but hate cooked spinach, and mushrooms are completely unappealing to me.

The service and ambiance were both great. The food was good, but nothing special. My steak medallions were cooked to medium like I asked but for some reason really dry and not very tender. In fact, I’ve never had tenderloin that was so dry and tough. My best guess is that they sliced it into the medallions too soon without cooling a bit so all the juices were lost. The king crab was good as well, nothing amazing and seemed a bit over cooked. I’ve had much better food at McCormick’s before, but I’ve never dined at this particular location until now.
