Lovely Views

The views from this riverfront restaurant are very nice. If you enjoy people watching there is a constant stream of people walking the riverfront boardwalk on the a nice day. We had a table on the upper level so the views were excellent. The wait staff is very keen but not particularly helpful... read 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

Your choice of a fine meal out on the patio overlooking the water, or inside the restaurant. We were in Portland for the Dragon Boat races - just right by the restaurant. Food and service excellent.

Yes this is a must for my husband and I in the summer to drive Down Town to eat here. Evenings on a Sunday when my husband is nice and rested form his week, we love to watch the boats & people, then as the sun go down, the lights come on in the trees that run along the sidewalk.... More

This river front area is a great place to dine outdoors in the evening and enjoy views of the river and bridges. McCormick's specializes in seafood, salads and also has some pasta dishes. The food was good, but not great and also a bit pricey. We had the Calamari Fritto Misto appetizer, which was good, and the Strawberry Arugula salad... More

True this is part of a chain, but it was clear the staff took pride in their place and were knowledgeable about their menu and wines. We started with the mussels and a few raw oysters (several types sold individually). The mussels were fine, but the sauce was nothing special. The oysters were awesome and the cocktail sauce was perfect.... More

This was great seafood. the oysters were awesome. The server seemed a little off.. not sure if she was new, but we ended up getting our oysters free of charge when she didn't explain the types we got. Beautiful outdoor seating and really great spot.

It has a nice view. The service was bumbling. I ordered 2 appetizers, calamari and fried oysters, and both were bland. I have no desire to return.
