Everything was good but they took a minute to come over and get things started but once they did everything was good.

The menu and wine list made for a great dining experience.

The appetizers were delicious. Unfortunately, my grilled salmon was dry because it was over cooked.

Took my wife there for Valentine Day and had a great time. I use to work in DC so this was my favorite Happy Hour restaurant. The location and the professional service you get there can't be beat. I also go to the one in Reston VA, National Harbor and actually any city their in. I really enjoy the food, being part of the Landry Select Club which offer extra benefits when I go to M&S to eat. Strongly recommend for date night, Anniversary, birthday party's or just after hour's after a hard days work.

30 minutes after the order was placed we were told one of the dishes were not available. How does that happen? Inexcusable. Manager didn’t seem to completely understand the problem. Only after much pressure, the replacement dish was comped. We were very disappointed with the evening. The server understood. The manager didn’t.

The food was not as good as I expected. The fish and chips were rubbery, fries undercooked and greasy, and there was a hair in my colleague’s crab stuffed shrimp.

Second time there in a few months. The salad and the crab soup were very good. The main of tuna was good. Would recommend

I waited 30 minutes for my cocktail, which was wrong when it arrived. I had to ask for it twice. Service was extremely slow. Food was good but when you get mediocre service, it’s not worth the price.

Service and food quality were FAR lower than expected. Rice on sea bass was horribly cooked, though we got a reduction in price. The only dish that was hot were French fries . . . truffle fries were ordered but plane fries were delivered. Service was extremely slow. Supposedly bread was baking but arrived very late. One salad was not delivered but was included on check in spite of repeated assurances that it would be taken off. I eventually paid it to avoid more discussion. More time was taken having us sign up for a discount card of some sort than was taken attending to our service. Sadly, we will not return and will not recommend M&S.

The wait staff seemed unfamiliar with the menu and unable to provide recommendations or answer questions. The fish was very over cooked.

Overrated...I think they live off their reputation of the past. I was disappointed by every phase of service, the greeting, the service, the food, well dessert was the star. everything came out at the same time, drinks, bread, apps, and entrees...a big no no! It was restaurant week and the server and apparently the host did not know either because it was not promoted or mentioned to any of the diners. And yes, they actually had a restaurant week menu. Albeit, it has been years, this restaurant has fallen off big time. The servers was dress more professional than the manager. At the end of the day, I can tolerate bad service, but the food must be better than good. They lost me with the food. It just was not good...signature chicken was dry and the sauce was way too salty.

For this restaurant not even to be crowded or had the worst service ever!! We had to ask for bread, we never got the salads we ordered. My husband asked for a “Corona” and got “Rum”!!! Worst service ever!! Won’t recommend this place to anyone I like or even dislike for that matter!!

This used to be a QUIET and elegant dining establishment, where it was a pleasure to bring friends and family. Now, sadly, it is an unbelievably noisy sports bar type place with incredibly loud and terrible “music” echoing troughout. It is no longer worthy of the name McCormick & Schmick’s. Little wonder, that the place was half empty on a busy Friday evening.

Service is about the worst I have ever experienced at any McCormick & Schmick’s. I can see why it was so easy to get a last minute reservation and get an additional 1000 Opentable points.

First less than great experience I've had there. Service extremely slow, took 45 minutes to get soup and salad. Another 20 for lunch to arrive. Server kept disappearing. Food came out with some items cold. Not the level of quality I have always gotten there.

I wanted a great lunch and that is what I got! The restaurant featured a special menu for "Restaurant Week" that was delicious! Thanks!

Food was decent. The bisque was way too salty and had to be returned.
