Very nice experience. We have dined at locations in several cities. Never disappointed.

This was a "New Year's" business lunch for five persons. Relatively quiet, fast service and the food was tasty - some portions were rather large and others right on target.

Yes, we'd visit again.

I have been a customer or McCormick & Schmick's often, especially in Chicago and love it. However, my visit to the one on K Street in Chicago was well below par for one reason - service. It took forever to get our drinks. It even took 15 minutes before water was on the table. We had already ordered a dozen oysters before we realized the service wasn't going to get any better. When we complained to the waiter he blamed it on the bar because it was 'Happy Hour'. I guarantee you I was about to drop a whole lot more money on dinner and drinks than anyone in the bar would. We ended up leaving after the oysters and one round of drinks (45 minutes) and went elsewhere to finish our meal.

Our waiter was extremely nice and personable, and the food was the best we ate in DC. Would definitely go there again!

We did enjoy ourselves and the meals but I was extremely disappointed that no one acknowledged our daughter's birthday. In the Open Table reservation, I specified Birthday - Special Occasion and, again, when we entered and checked in, I re-emphasized at the front desk, we were there to celebrate our daughter's birthday - but no one said or made any kind gesture (lit candle, nice dessert) to celebrate the occasion we were there to celebrate. We may visit your restaurant again in the future but not to celebrate a special occasion.

I’ve come to rely on good service and food from MS but was disappointed in my most recent visit. This was primarily due to the service. Members of my guest party ordered warm tea and were given a cup of hot water absent the customary kettle which was only brought when requested and only after all others received their drinks - how long does it take to get hot water? This was followed by one of my party’s steak being brought out without a steak knife. Took two requests to have it brought out. While these things in and of themselves didn’t kill the evening it’s not the MS service I have come to know and rely on.

Terrible service we sat with no refills had to ask another waiter to bring us something to drink so we could finish our food. We are no check finally we ask to speak to manager she had nothing to say except I will reprimand him and still no service. Asked for the check no dessert recommendations finally just paid and left. Embarrassing.

Service was awful and food was just as bad. Went for anniversary dinner with husband and 3 teenagers. Sat by the Service area and the waiter was non existent. Was charged for food we never got as well as charged for beers we never got.
