Bad service and food not worth the price. Roasted beet salad with crispy goat cheese (served without goat cheese) Overcooked and fishy rare tuna, i think you get the point!

My boyfriend and I came here on the first day of our trip after a long car ride from Phoenix. Amazing happy hour, 4 cocktails each, a cheeseburger with fries and crab and lobster sliders for $63! Great food, great patio, great prices. A large selection to choose from. Nice atmosphere.

I can always count on this chain for consistency, good quality food and attentive service. Enjoyed a crabcake and salad. Crabcake was a nice size, creamy with delicious crab meat. Service was friendly and attentive. Will return.

Nice selection of good priced food and drinks at Happy Hour. The Crab and shrimp sliders were a good choice. Half pound Hamburger is a great deal for $4. Friendly staff.

Stopped for a quick lunch on the way to a meeting. The service was awesome...very attentive staff. The food, as usual, was good and always consistent.

This particular McCormick & Schmick had a great selection of oysters. It was very reasonably priced and offered some unique dishes like a perfectly grilled octopus.

Located in the OMNI at the San Diego gaslamp district, it is a nice place. However, it is far from the best in this area, not even close. It took 20 minutes to get a wine order, and the food was mediocre. However, it is well decorated, very clean and airy, and nice people. Skip the calamari and caesar salad.
