This is an upscale looking eatery that draws a large percentage of its clientele from the surrounding dense office complexes in the airport area of Irvine. I’ll be generous in giving four stars on the strength of an awesome lunch, but the stratospheric pricing and a couple minor negatives should not be ignored. Aside from the food quality, McCormick &... More

I've been to several of these recently. All of them leave me feeling like they're very average restaurants dressed up as higher end places in pricey locales. Food is OK, somewhat noisy inside, and pretty good service. Fairly expensive but prepared to order. "Meh".

I am local and wanted to meet my financial advisors for dinner. We went into the back bar, during happy hour and had a first drink, the server was attentive and must have come back at least 3 times. We then cleared the tab and went into the dining area, and our server was a very nice lady who told... More

My finacee and I went for a belated fathers day dinner and had a good meal. Service was very good and the food was good also. Only complaint was the shrimp was a little over cooked. The cream brulee was excellent.

Nothing to write home about, but this place was right accross the street from the hotel and was better then getting a burger. The portions are very large - ate outside which was nice.

Nothing fancy. Fresh seafood with extravagant pricing and stuffy atmosphere. You can do better elsewhere.

For many years, we have been dining at McCormick & Schmick's in Irvine on special occasions and annually as a family tradition on Christmas Eve and have been very happy with the service. This tradition will probably stop. Although the food is still very good, we have found the servers for the past couple of years have been various combinations... More

I was staying at the hotel adjacent to the restaurant and have visited this restaurant a few times previously just eating in the bar area. I was with a work colleague so we took a table. The service was fast and very attentive. Very good menu to choose from including decent selection of wines by the glass. Having had several... More
