Good Seafood

The food was very good at McCormick & Schmick's. I had the mini wedge salad and salmon. The service was very good. The restaurant was a great place for a business meeting.

We used to eat at this location often when we lived in the area and gave it a try while vacationing nearby. While there numerous patrons, it seemed they were understaffed. We ate at the bar for expediency and noticed there was but one bartender (on a Saturday night) who was slammed the entire night. Food service was also very... More

Food is good and service is great. The price is average. Cocktails are unique and cool! Their oysters are fresh and the sea bass was awesome!

McCormick and Schmick's offers a free meal for Veterans for Veterans' Day. It was amazing to walk in and see all of the veterans and their families enjoying the food. The restaurant staff worked to seat the folks with reservations as well as the streams of families coming in without reservations.

I've dined here 3-4 times when I've been staying at the Embassy Suites across the way. Given the prices, which I think are high(and this is with me getting to expense the meal for work) I don't think the quality of the food is commensurate with the cost. I most recently had a steak with really was not very good.... More

We went there for my daughters rehearsal dinner and to welcome the grooms family into ours. They set up a private room for 18 people and served us amazingly with great recommendation from appetizer platters to main courses and dessert. You have to go eat here.
