Location next to PetCo was the driving factor to stop and visit. The food here is WAAAY better than what is offered in the park. Great place for a quality adult beverage ( NOT served in a plastic cup ).

I have eaten an many of these across the country and was not disappointed by the quality of food / service that I expect from McCormick & Schmick

I am trying to visit McCormick & Schmick restaurant on most occasions I stay in the US, and I was very satisfied with what I found here in San Diego. The place was quiet and the food was to this restaurant standards. I would appreciate a little bit more care from the staff, esp. after arrival, but overall it was a nice experience.

The service was good but half way thru the meal the restaurant started smelling like a sewer. I let someone know and so they opened the door and kept it propped with a chair. It was 50 degrees outside. They offered us each a glass of wine on the house. Then we ordered our $58 ribeyes steaks well done - one came out med-med rare and the other was 70% fat and couldn’t eat it. So they then offered one dessert on the House. The sides were nothing special. I thought this was a fine dining place and it was below average. Definitely won’t be returning to any of these chains ever again.

Adam, my waiter, was sweet and very attentive. I had a seafood and pasta dish with Alfredo sauce--excellent!
I was disappointed by the bar, though. Their selection was limited.

The service was horrible. The hostess sat our party and we waited about 20 minutes before I got up to go find someone to just serve us coffee. For breakfast, we were there 1 hour and 40 minutes due to the horrible service. we were hosting clients and all of us had meetings after. We ALL missed at least 2 meetings. In addition, I ordered fresh scrambled eggs and when the meal came, it was evident that they were not fresh eggs that were served. It was clearly a batter. It was really unfortunate bc I cannot recommend the restaurant nor will I ever visit it again. It is completely unreliable.

The Manager Fernando was fantastic. We were celebrating my wife's birthday, and I went to the restaurant early to take my wife's birthday bouquet that I wanted delivered to her at our table after we ordered appetizers. Fernando delivered the flowers at the perfect time and was so gracious with his compliments about our occasion. He and the waiter made our evening perfect! The crab cakes and seafood trio was delivered timely and piping hot, as we requested, and really delicious. We will definitely go back to this McCormick's and Schmick's restaurant.

We always have a meal here when in S.D. for Dodgers-Padres game. We dined early due to game time, so not crowded or noisy. Marco was very obliging, albeit a bit much. Had a super glass of King Estate Oregon Pinot Gris and 5 giant prawns with pasta and tomatoes in a white garlic cream sauce. Very nice. Served quickly. Due to the 5pm res., it was a 1,000pt dinner!

Place was well above for an eatery located within a hotel and we got to meet the chef. Price was on a high end for the meals about 75 more than a comparable dining experience. Part of that issue is what kills the frequency of going to San Diego, as it can be higher than Hawaii. So the eatery is affected. Really nice meal but not a lot of lower costing alternatives.

We were visiting from out of town. Went there for lunch one day and ordered the crabcake for an appetizer. It was amazing the first day. We had the seafood pasta as our entrée. It was average. But, we were so impressed by the crabcake that we went back again for dinner one evening. We ordered the crabcake again as an appetizer. When it came out, it was about half the size of the first crabcake we had ordered. For $20, that was very disappointing. My daughter ordered the seafood Trio, which came with a crabcake for her meal and while the mail was 35, the crabcake we ordered for $20 was the same size as the one that came with her meal.

I have been to many restaurants in San Diego being a native. First thing I’d like to mention is that actually grill there oysters if you ask, which were fantastic and there first place that has had that option . The service was quick and extremely friendly. The food was great. And the drinks were crisp. Overall will definitely be back and recommend to others.

I usually love this place; however, after 3 straight bad experiences I am giving up and writing this review. We went for Valentine’s Day. The restaurant called me to confirm my reservation during the day. We arrived at 730 for our table and were told it would just be a minute. Ten minutes later the hostess indicated we might want to just sit at the bar as it would be a very long wait. There were empty tables everywhere. We said no, and then magically got a table. We had 3 different servers during the meal. After a 45 min wait, They delivered us the wrong meals. I had to go into the kitchen area to find someone to help us . When cleaning up the table after dinner the gentleman dropped a knife into my fiancé’s lap covering her with cream sauce . No apology. Not once were we asked how our food was or experience.

Anyway, I would skip this place. Had similar rudenesss from host staff the last two times, etc. It’s a shame, this place used to be great.

Went for my wife's birthday, which is also Valentine's Day. Total disaster. Had us seat ourselves. Forgot our "custom" menu. Waited two hours to be served and the food was cold! Waiter "mentioned" that he had served four tables that night, and three had walked out because the food was so poor. We made table number four...

Best scallops in any San Diego dining spot. Perfectly seared on both sides, creamy smooth in the middle, nice mix of vegetables or sweet potato mash with the meal. Clam chowder always filled with clams and just enough potatoes.
Chefs corner menu: Grilled Wild Isles Salmon with roasted beets and asparagus was exceptional.
Dessert: Upside Down Candied Walnut Apple Pie with ice cream was a nice alternative to chocolate offerings.

PLUS: Boodles gin martini was perfect start to the meal.

Food was delicious, as always, but our server “Marco” was not good...he rushed us taking our order, walking away before we were done with our questions. He did not bring the bread out, which is my favorite, until we had to ask him for it when they brought the entree. He also got my husband’s order wrong and he had to wait for it to be redone, never good.
