We went to M&S for Mother’s Day Brunch and was terrible disappointed. Our reservation was for 9:30 as were 50 or more other people gathered at the door by 9:15 waiting for it to open. We were seated and there we waited 10 minutes for our server to take our drink orders and show us to the buffet, where there... More

We had a large group and they really helped us out. The service and food is great! Try the bacon and cheese wrapped prawns! The clam chowder is always good!

On the first impression the restaurant has a nice view and looks very friendly and open. The impression was however quickly destroyed when approaching the maitre (hostess for the ones not familiar with the french word). We only had a reservation on a Sunday for 7:00 and were there at 6:45. Not a problem you would assume, as the restaurant... More

I came here with a party of 7 for New Years Eve. We were seated about 6:05 and had brought a Magnum of wine we wanted to have opened. After 20 minutes no one had approached us to take an order or to offer to open our wine. There were other tables being helped but several waiters kept passing by.... More

We were treated to a beautiful evening at the Harborside before the Ballet. Our window table offered a view of Seattle lights and boat activity on Lake Union. The sockeye salmon dinner was cooked to perfections. Our sides included arugula salad and crab chowder, both excellent! Our server, John, offered timely service in a friendly way. Our two granddaughters enjoyed... More

First of all it is a beautiful restaurant and the night views of Seattle and south Lake Union are terrific. The atmosphere is very nice and even with massive glass walls sound was very well muted. Table conversation was very nice. Food was good, I had the halibut, my daughter the salmon and her boyfriend the petit filet. Kind of... More

I hosted a private birthday party here for 40, it was exceptional. Food was really good. Harborside averaged what they said would service 40 with appetizers, it was adequate but could have been a bit more to be completely satisfied. The view of the city is beautiful and the room is a great size and was laid out perfectly. The... More

Due to the constant rain when we parked at South Lake Union, we changed our plans for the afternoon and started with a light lunch at McCormick and Schmick's. It took a while to get service at 2:30 in the afternoon. We were eventually seated at a table near the water, and we loved the views on the first full... More

I work nearby McCormick & Schmicks and I admit -- I love the happy hour, especially now that it's expanded until 6:30 pm on week days. The food is always good and the bartenders are great. Lunch is on the expensive side -- especially now that the downstairs bistro is only open for cocktails and food in the evening.
