Good location, disappointing food

We sat on the waterfront patio on a very pleasant evening and did enjoy the setting. However, the food was disappointing. I had halibut from the summer special menu but there was nothing special about it: barely seasoned and over cooked. A salad with walnuts and blue cheese was okay but again, not... read more

Fantastic food and service, lovely location too by the riverside. Party of over 20 for wedding rehearsal dinner.

So so good and highly highly disorganized staff. They were closing up more than an hour before their stated closing time and they were NOT HAPPY when we showed up and asked for a table. The food did come quite quickly and was ok but nothing special. The location keeps this place open.

Karin is the best waitperson ever. She made our dining experience very enjoyable, so much so that we dined there two nights in a row. Food and drinks were excellent, but beware the fish & chips on Friday were $18.99 and then when we went the next evening on Saturday they were $21.99. Don't know why the price difference but...

Whenever we visit Portland in the summer, we make sure we stop here for lunch or dinner and sit on the patio. We have never been disappointed with the food or the service and we love to sit and relax outdoors while we eat. We can look out at the river or people watch as people walk, run, bike down... More

Great view of the river, nice and relaxing sitting outside on the sidewalk. Food is always excellent, although can be pricey.

Right next to the Willamette River, the setting makes this place quite special. If you park in the lot in the same block as the restaurant, they will validate one hour). We had lunch on Father's Day with three generations. Although you can not reserve an outdoor table, you can request one when you arrive, which we did. The children... More

Was headed to River Place with my husband to get a bite to eat and as we walked along the river front all the McCormick & Schmick tables on the sidewalk looked so inviting, so we stopped. Let me just say extremely MARGINAL food and complete LACK of service. And? They didn't seem to care. Bypass it, so many independent... More

Go here and requested a drink. Server brought me a tasteless mohito and when I tried to explain my need, she got agitated and even more irritated than me who did not get what I was going to pay for... also, when the food was served, nothing different than the cafe at the corner of the street. I just asked... More

My wife and I really enjoy the location especially outside by the river, but the last 3-4 times the service has been unbearably slow. It shouldn't take 1:30-2:00 hours for lunch! If it was only on a single occasion I could understand but it has become consistent. Not sure we'll be back anytime soon, which is unfortunate. If you have... More
