The main dish is a bit too salty for my taste. the appetizer was great

Food was actually decent and so was our waitress. Unfortunately our table of 4 was cramped with other tables that I was touching shoulder with the lady of the neighboring table. Changed tables to the bar, which was much spacer and quite. As mentioned, our waitress was very friendly and helpful. However, the kitchen was extremely SLOW! It took almost 2hrs for dinner.

We, a family of 4, had dinner on a Sunday night. The website linked to Open Table, where we made a 6 pm reservation. When we arrived at 5:55, the host explained that there were no tables available--claiming that OpenTable is not properly synched, and that we would not be able to get a table until 9 or 10 at night. When we questioned this, they graciously cleared a table for us in the bar area. The service was very slow, and the waitress did not even take our order until we had finished our appetizers. The appetizers and entres we're over-priced, under-sized and not impressive. On the way out, we noticed numerous empty tables in the dining area.

Shrimp was over cooked. Fish and chips were just Ok. Everything was just ok, which made it not worth the price. Service wasn’t bad, but a little slow. Food on the seat when we sat down and not properly wiped off.

The Ancho Chili Charred Octopus was good; not great. The seared sea scallops were very tasty with the roasted corn hash my favorite part, together with the avocado cilantro lime puree. We were there mid-day and enjoyed a relaxed meal with conversation.

Next visit will be for meat. My scampi did not have a light flavor, and sat heavy on the pallet and finish. The noodles were too thick, pasty, and long. My wife's crab legs had been frozen and were tough, sinewy, and dry.

This was one of the best meals we have had at McCormicks since we started dining here several years ago. Our meals were cooked the way we requested and presented very well. I would order the same meal again. Enjoyed our lunch date.

Our reservation was moved 45 minutes out without explanation, and although we arrived on time we still had to stand and wait almost 20 minutes to be seated despite several empty tables that had been reset.

I was excited to try McCormick & Schmick's as I heard a lot of good things through the years. We arrived on Valentine's for an early pre-6 p.m. dinner, and were seating at the back of the bar. We were unable to see our menu and the seats were crammed between the wall and another table so the seat backs were touching. There was no candle on the table and no over head light, and there were small bar flies hovering our table. This was disappointing as we left there were 5 tables open, closer to the windows. Service was good, and food was good. I asked for extra vegetables, but it looked like one portion. Not sure if it is worth it to go back. Very disappointing on the whole event.
