Think McCormick & Schmick's is expensive? Well, for dinner it can be, but one of the best hidden secrets to eating here on a budget is happy hour.

In town for a conference we (8) went to check it out. It was a nice place, not noisy, you could speak to one another and be heard. It was very busy and the waiters were moving fast to accommodate everyone. Lighting was low and tranquil. The appetizers were delightful! We ordered the Seafood stuffed mushrooms, Calamari "Fritto Misto", Shrimp... More

You can tell this is going to cost you plenty the minute you roll up. No parking allowed on this quiet side street where the entrance is, but a valet will take your car for $6, no doubt expecting an extra handout, thanks to all the tipaholics out there. Forget it. We crossed Hawthorne and parked at a meter in... More

Dependable, somewhat salty fare. Very good service by young wait staff. Scallop and shrimp dishes (on a bed of spinach with an unusual crab and potato mixture for a bed) were skimpy on the scallops and shrimp. Crab and potato combination may not work for some. Presentation was nice, though, shaped in a cylinder. Pasta dishes were all above par,... More

I was there for Valentine's Day with my husband and a friend. The service was terrible, my dinner was served cold, by the time it returned the other persons had finished theirs, my main dish was warm but the sides were then cold. We were given a table for 2 with a third chair added very cramped. The room had... More

On a layover in LA so came here by myself for an early dinner. Asked the waiter about the fish and was concerned about eating farmed fish. He informed me that most of the fish these days is farmed ??? What?? I'm from Florida, and I know we try to, as does Ca, avoid farmed fish since fresh local fish... More

Very quiet on a Tuesday. Sat in the bar and had excellent service. The lobster bisque was great as was the filet Oscar! Bartender/service was attentive and the food came out quickly. Pricey, but that should be expected here.

My wife and I had dinner here for Valentines Day and were very disappointed in the service, food portions and quality. We've eaten in several McCormick and Schmicks in different cities and I think this is the last time. Being seated at 6:30, they were already out of vegetable sides. The broccoli was underdone and had to be sent back.... More

2d M&S that I have visited and I would have to say that I keep thinking that it should be better. Great location - nice shopping area. Fish & Chips were very tasty and the crab cakes were good. Sirloin steak wasn't great. Guess if you order well done you should expect a dry, leathery item even if you pay... More

I visited the restaurant twice. First time I had ahi tuna which was excellent. Second time I took a filet mignon, which I had already much better in many other locations. Sorry to say: I expected much more. Service was good. Atmosphere was a bit noisy.
