Went here following a recommendation and we were glad we did. We went on a Thursday night and made a reservation in advance (and were glad that we had done as it got busy). We shared a starter (tuna both seared and sashimi), and then had blackened tilapia special and the scallops. All of which were delicious, perfectly cooked. We... More

This was our third visit to McCormick & Schmick's. We discovered it two years ago while visiting Philadelphia. Then last year we came upon it while walking in New York. Both visits were wonderful dining experiences. So, of course, we had to return this year when we visited New York. Simply put, it a dining establishment one should include while... More

Super noisy but great service. The fried shrimp batter was a little under cooked and the ahi tuna was flavorless and discolored. The crab soup was good (the dish had soup all over it) and the clam soup was also very nice. The hostess was fantastic and so was the manager. She took the ahi off our bill and was... More

A very good selection of high quality seafood near Rockefeller Center. Service was excellent. Part of restaurant is noisy, but we were in an enclosed quite seating for 4 that was lovely. Deserts were very good. Portions were large. One f better seafood values for the dollar in midtown

Where to eat in NYC is always confusing for visitors unfamiliar with the city. My wife and I have dined at McCormick and Schmick in several cities and have never been disappointed yet. The food is fresh and delicious, the service is attentive and friendly without being overbearing, and the prices are reasonable for fine dining. We didn't feel rushed... More

The McCormick & Schmick's restaurant is very well located on Avenue of the Americas. The menu was a bit limited in choices but we chose the pan seared scallops, which were excellently prepared. The service was very nice, not rushed, and the waiter allowed us extra time to relax and enjoy our dinner while he returned to serve us at... More

This was the best meal we had in New York. Very good attentive waiter. We had cocktails, mains and amazing desserts. I would absolutely come here again, can't fault it at all. The restaurant was very busy (a good sign) and we didn't have to wait at all and the food was excellent.
