Great Service & always good food

This place is a guarantee of quality, anywhere you'll find it. I have tried a few and have always found a nice atmosphere, great service and a good level of cuisine. Worth you trying it.

This was one of my favorite restaurants in nyc. So sad it is closed. They had the juiciest lobster - greatest scallops - filet mignon was great - I can go on and on. The staff was great - always made us feel soooooo welcome. Please bring it back.

We went for a family event and had a great time. The food was amazing. The steaks were the best and the seafood appetizer was a pleasant surprise. Huge quantity. We had a tough time finishing it all. Service a bit slow...

Everything is just about as one would expect, though the friendlier than usual service from a native Pittsburgher now transplanted to New York was unexpected. Nothing to complain about and the food was quite good.

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

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
