This place is pretty pricey, good, but pricey. I had a glass of wine, soup and a small entree for $60. While that's not terrible I suppose, I did leave hungry. I was literally the only person in the restaurant on a Sunday evening so that was a bit odd. The crab and corn chowder was good and the mixed... More

Had an early dinner on Sunday evening; busy but service was excellent, Brad was an excellent host/ server. He provided perfect selections for first timers. We had the Cedar Planked Salmon and Sizzling Fish Tacos with tomatillo sauce. I'll rate it as one of the best for the fish tacos because the tomatillo sauce was great. These were very close... More

I was all excited to enjoy my free veterans day lunch today!! I arrived at 10:55 am, they open at 11:00. I was seated immediately, only 2 other tables had patrons. I waited for 15 minutes, no ice water was offered, no wait person asked,or even approached me while I sat and waited. I got up and left and let... More

I walked into the bar to order dessert to go and was greeted by Hutch. He was an attentive bartender. I ordered two desserts to try. A piece of cheesecake that was served with fresh berries and an almond cookie basket with fresh berries and ice cream. Both were packaged to go within five minutes and utensils were included in...

I travel a lot and have been to all of the upper priced restaurants and most of the time the service is incredible so you know why the prices are the way they are. I've also been to many McCormick & Schmick's around the country. This was the worst. This McCormick & Schmick's is located near Orange County Airport in... More

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
