Partly good partly not so much

My husbands Filet Mignon tasted like it had tenderizer and for a 30 dollar steak, that shouldn't be so. It also was good more medium than medium rare. And actually it didn't even seem like a filet, more like top sirloin. My Mahi Mahi was delicious, though it was funny that it didn't really seem... read more

Steak lovers, here is the place for you! Variety of steaks awaits and they are tasty as well. The crab cakes are ok but the main event - steaks - are perfection.

This place is as you would expect, great high end food, but not overly expensive. Great service, nice location, huge place!

This restaurant is open Christmas Day on a limited basis and a great place to go if you don't like to cook. They had fabulous oysters and my lobster was great. My pal had a steak and enjoyed it.

Everything that you want form a steak house! Great food and a vast selection of drinks ... Crispy salads with great ingredients ... The fish is great too. This location is a little small and lacks some ambience - the food will never disappoint!

We had opentable reservation for Tuesday night, front desk person Joe Luby refused to honor reservation, told he has no table for us, never even apologized for the mixup, told mixup is not his problem and send is away. I never met such rude treatment at front desk. Lousy

I walked across the street to visit McCormick and Schmick's while on business travel and really enjoyed my meal. The atmosphere was good, the service was very good, and the food was exceptional. I had the scallops...while they were not huge, the taste was excellent. They also have reasonably priced, good wine by the glass. I would recommend.

I hate to say it, but this is one of my less memorable visits to this national chain, it was either them or me but it was simply not a very good experience and quite expensive. First, I had a glass of Chardonnay that was, at best, average based on the waiter's recommendation. Then, my scallops and beef dinner arrived... More

We visited this place because it is conveniently located 5 minutes walk from Wyndham Irvine hotel. Very big restaurant, they have their own brewery in the back with a special menu, but we ate in the main restaurant. Very good service, food was OK but not spectacular, nice bottle of red wine, quite pricey in general.

The restaurant has a nice warm but rather dark atmosphere. Service was very attentive and pleasant. The menu is alomost all seafood as advertised, with a wide selection. We had almond encrusted Trout, which was very tasty and enjoyable, and a bit off the beaten path. The wine list by glass included a great Mondavi Sauvignon Blanc which I highly... More
