    My steak was way overcooked not worth $54 the shrimp was overcooked not worth $35. We ordered a second glass of wine it took more than 20 minutes just the overall experience was not worth the money $220 I’ll never be back nor will I ever tell anyone to go there

    New Years Eve we were last minute and it was one of the only places available. Surprisingly very good! The Prime Rib was excellent with lobster mashed potatoes. Definitely worth it.

    The food was heavily oily & overly seasoned. Small main entree, but extra large dessert. I ordered the shrimp linguini and there was so much oil that my meal started to congeal while I was eating it. I was disappointed but also hungry, so unfortunately I just ate.

    Our hostess sat us down then forgot about us. Manager later found us at our booth surprised. took extra 15 minutes to get us waters. Steaks were not cooked to temperature requested. Finally, manager's attempt to apologize sounded more like it was our fault service and food were not to our liking. If we travel to San Diego again, will not visit this restaurant at all.

    The lobster bisque has always been phenomal. This time the lobster was scarce and the bisque was too thick and flavor was just not there. Very disappointing.

    The Big Eye Hawaiian tuna dish was one of the best seafood dinners I can remember. Everything we had was delicious. I have generally been under the impression that M&S is a bit pricey, and possibly so as it caters to the tourist and convention crowd. But on this occasion, the meals, drinks, dessert were of reasonable value.

    The fish selections are ALWAYS over the top! There was a large bisiness group of boisterous individuals that made a pleasant noise level into a loud one. Our conversation level had to be increased in order to communicate - no fun!!

    I was pleasantly surprised! We were looking for a plated Thanksgiving meal and we couldn’t of picked a better place! The dinner had large portions of turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, apple squash dish, amazing stuffing and green beans. We didn’t want to cook this year due to a pregnant family member. This was perfect and we all went home with leftovers! Service was great and location perfect. Might be back next year was so great! Thanks McCormick & Schmick’s

    Ordered the appetizer bacon wrapped scallions and cup of lobster bisque. Very disappointed in the bacon wrapped scallions. Three scallions pieces that looked like they were from one scallop but cut into thirds. Each third was wrapped in ½ a strip of bacon. - priced at $17. The lobster bisque was a fabulous.

    I am a Landry Member and have never been to McCormick and Schmick's. I received an email that they were offering a fabulous deal for Veterans. My Partner, a 20 year Marine Vet, was happy to accompany me. We ordered off a special Veteran's Day menu. He had the cedar plank salmon and I had the fish and chips. They were tasty, not as hot as we prefer in temperature. We also ordered appetizers, shrimp cocktail and crab cake. The appetizers were amazing. Overall, a nice dinner!

    Dined @ McCormick's for Veterans day. Wait staff was excellent, food was not up to usual standards. Vegetables were undercooked, parmesan chicken was poor. Based on previous visits, I feel this was an aberration. Again, our table server as excellent & made up for the deficiency in food quality.

    We were there for a weekend lunch and wound up almost having the place to ourselves. The server was very attentive, but not hovering. The food selection and quality was excellent. We like a quiet restaurant; I don’t know if it is always quiet because there was hardly anyone there when we were. However, for us it was excellent. We will definitely be back!

    We came here after a Padres game. Food was good, a little pricey, but good. Our server forgot to put in our order for a salad. She was oblivious and didn’t try to make it up to us but which was odd since we paid $200 for an early dinner.

    I love the relaxed feel of this place – not busy, but at least we had the waiters full attention. View was not spectacular but the weather and internal temperature of the restaurant was perfect. I definitely would return when in the area. Steaks were cooked to perfection and the shrimp scampi was perfect. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

    Quality of food was nowhere near the price required. Two steaks were over cooked. Caesar salad was very good. Lump crab cake was okay. Steak had good flavor but again, were not correctly cooked. Were out of several drink options, and then brought the wrong one. For the price, compared to the product, would rate it well below average for similar restaurants.

    My reservation was at 7:15 p.m., we were running late so I called and informed them that we were running late. They said no problem and that our table would be waiting for us. The man on the phone was very nice and as soon as we arrived we were seated, no waiting. Our waitress was very friendly and patient with us since my father couldn't decide on what he wanted to order. But there was a few times that I felt that she forgot about us. I have been going to McCormick & Schmick's for quite some time now and really enjoy the food and the atmosphere.

    Greeted immediately upon arrival and was ushered to a very nice booth for both of us. Waitress immediately asked if we were here to celebrate an event. Food was okay but waitress made it a very enjoyable dinner. She and another gentleman kept checking on us. Ended with a surprise dessert brought to table for a birthday. Samantha is a great asset to your restaurant!

    I make better food and I've never been to chef school! Maybe you should serve my Ahi/Mango/Avocado tower instead of your crab/mango/avocado tower. I've had such towers at so many restaurants and this was by far the worst, not even any type of chips to go with it! Drinks were too watered down, I'm a light weight so if I barely felt anything, they were poor and overpriced. Waiter was wonderful or my rating would be even lower.
