    Party of 4. Be careful with what you're charged for. We asked for "plain" water and got a $7 bottle of aqua panna without being told. Waitress then asked if we wanted "soup or salad" and I said "Hey guys, this is great, the food comes with soup or salad, maybe it's because of happy hour". Waitress did not correct me. Receipt comes with 4, $12 salads on it (and they were small, side salads). Waitress said drinks would ring up as happy hour prices, they did not. Steaks tasted good, honestly they were over-salted though. None of the sides were outstanding. Won't be back and won't recommend it to anyone.

    While we were seated immediately upon arrival, it took 20 minutes for a server to first come to our table after being seated (we had to get someone’s attention). No issues after that.

    I asked for outside seating because it was a nice evening. The waiter at the reception desk first said he couldn’t seat me outside because it the weather. When I pointed out that the weather is great, he muttered something about it being hard on the waitstaff to serve outdoors. I didn’t want to have an argument with the idiot as he was changing stories just to get his way, but I think this goes counter to Tilman’s quote that is printed on every receipt of “there are no spare customers.” The service at this location is always spotty. Drink delivery was late. The waiter this night was inattentive and disappeared at the end of the dinner. Lobster bisque and Kobe burger were good.

    Our dinner was absolutely terrible. I never write reviews, but was inclined to do so after our experience last night. First time eating at the restaurant and will definitely be the last. We ordered the mussels as an appetizer. As soon as they were brought to the table, all we could smell was hot garbage. It was soooo bad. We’ve eaten mussels many times at many different places. These were not just fishy smelling but literally smelled like hot garbage. We told our server and all he said was “ok”. Our actual dinner wasn’t as bad as the garbage mussels, but it was very lackluster for a nicer place. The fries were cold and grease logged and my husband’s “chef specialty” entree was tasteless. We didn’t expect the food to be mind blowing or over the top, but it was very disappointing. Don’t understand how this place how such good reviews.

    This is our 3rd dining experience with McCormick & Schmick's Downtown location. The other 2 times were outstanding but this one was at best "Fair". We had just eaten there on August 19th and had an outstanding experience. I ordered the exact same cocktail, appetizer and entree because they were so delicious. At the same visit we had a great server and manager who even had visited our table too during that visit. However our flatbread appetizer was not crisp and fresh like it was the previous visit, the cobia fish entree was VERY tough, dried out, not seared like it had been the last time and drowning in butter sauce. My husband ordered 4 "old fashions". The first was very good the others were only filled partially an entire 1" from the top, no orange peel like the first one and no cherry either. There were FIVE servers chit chatting in the doorway to probably the kitchen across the room from our table. Our server was not very attentive so my husband had to literally wave his hand hand in the air to try to flag one of them down. Thankfully the only female in the group came over but she wasn't even our server. My husband's water glass needed filling about 15 minutes after arrival and our server never re-filled it. He thought his only job was to bring our food out as that's the only time we saw him. We only eat fish on Friday so were excited when we discovered McCormick & Schmick's but not sure we'll be back.

    Dinner for family of four - parents, young adult and teen, we loved our seat at the windows which was so intimate and just fun. We started out with shrimp kisses, kids loved them. I enjoyed oysters, hubby loved his Woodford reserve and wedge salad, creamiest blue cheese dressing! Our mains were decent, temperature of food could have been warmer, linguine pasta lacked flavor, scallops delish, steaks were great, redfish cooked well lacked a little flavor. Ended with a delicious upside down apple pie, cinnamon ice cream and cheesecake, don't hesitate to give the restaurant a Yes.

    Dinner and drinks were very good, got both signature drinks and they were amazing! Our server seemed very knowledgeable of the menu and made good recommendations; however, service was extremely slow and took forever to get food or drinks and we were suppose to have two servers but only saw one every so often and could never find our main server and it was not packed by any means, several tables open and so was the entire bar area most of the time we were there. Reservations for 11 people were at 7:30 and we were all there on time, we ended up finally able to pay around 9:30. Recommend for a date night but not for large groups.

    My wife entered the bathroom and a male employee entered right after her which really scared her and he nonchalantly said " I am here checking the toilet paper "....WHAT ???? He did not leave immediately which really freaked her out . We told the waitress about the inccident and she stated " well to not create any extra excitement I will let management know after we close ". WHAT ??? The bread we requested did not come until about 30 min later . Food was okay but not worth the charge . The boothe felt like it was designed for 12 yr old children . I was so tired from a long day that I had no energy to complain or argue. We have a very influential circle of family and friends and I will be encouraging them to find other places to enjoy a good meal and with a safe enviroment .

    My girlfriend and I came to McCormick & Schmicks to celebrate me graduating cybersecurity school. For appetizers we had the raw (fleetwood) oysters and cooked (Rockefeller) oysters. Our waiters suggested the shrimp which was bacon wrapped shrimp with a spicy glaze. I highly recommend these appetizers. For our main course my gf went with with the stuffed salmon and I had the blacked red fish with blue lump crab on top. The food was 10/10. For cocktails we order the cherry Moscow mule and the raspberry Moscow mule. The drinks were excellent as well. We will be returning.

    I have been to McCormicks many times. I have always found them to be good but not great. However, last nights visit was exceptional. All the food items we tried were terrific. Also, our waiter was very good, especially when it is hard to find good people. We will definitely go back soon and I will request our same waiter. We dined at the downtown location.

    Went to this location instead of the Galleria location. Mistake. Service was slow. Waitress forgot my drink. Salmon was fishy. Had fried shrimp; upgraded to truffle fries that were moist and meh. Fish n chips were heavy, salty. Spicy margarita not spicy. 3 meals. 5 drinks. $158. Money could be spent better elsewhere. Oh, and parking is tricky. Valet $10. Won’t be back.

    We came to Houston for my husband’s birthday and he’s a pescatarian so I wanted to find a place that had plenty of options for him. McCormick and SchMick’s checked all of the boxes. He was actually overwhelmed with how many choices he had due to many restaurants having limited options. Enjoyed the ambiance and overall experience.
