Nice Dinner

Had a nice dinner with family the night before returning home from our CA vacation. Food was very good. Service was good. Valet parking was excellent. This restaurant is conveniently close to airport hotels. The menu is a little pricey.

came on a Tuesday night and restaurant was unusually slow. Past visits required reservations for dinner. Not quite sure if with low patronage some of the better servers were allowed to not come in. Had to ask for water 3x. Service was quite unexpected of this establishment

As a business traveler, eating solo most evenings, I appreciate a good bar to grab dinner and a drink. The bartenders were knowledgeable about the menu and made a mean and spicy Bloody Mary from scratch - the way it should be! The clam chowder was fantastic but be sure to order the bowl as the cup is small. I... More

Visited the bar for a appetizer and cocktail. Bartender not very experienced in creating cocktails. Food took a long time - I wouldn't return.

Buying a discount card lead us to try McCormick & Schmicks again. I ordered the premium seafood plate consisting of stuffed shrimp, fried shrimp, salmon, scallops and broccoli with mashed potatoes a cup of clam chowder plus a glass of wine. The chowder was fair, the mashed potatoes were cold, the broccoli was salty and the price was high. Waiter... More

Sunday evening at 6:00. Almost empty, got a nice booth, very quiet. Started with a beer and a Grey Goose martini...love those bleu cheese olives! She had a kale salad...nice small, mild kale greens with fried garbanzo beans. I had the strawberry bibb lettuce salad with candied walnuts, bleu cheese (detect a theme here?), and vinaigrette dressing. She had the... More

I had the shrimp trio (after they brought me the right meal ;) ) it was great. We had lots of appetizers. The stuffed prawns were fantastic. Would eat a whole meal of them. The calamari was good too. The clam chowder was plain and may have been out of a can. The taste and look were just not right.... More

The fish is consistently good, as is the service. There are a few menu items for those who don't like fish. This is a great place to try new fish as they prepare it very well, in a variety of ways.

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 like Mahi either. But I... 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.
