People dock their boats right beside the building and come up to the restaurant to eat. The food is great and it's a full view of the lake from the dining room.

I don't know how they make mashed potatoes and green beans taste so good! It must have been the butter sauce served with it. I had the salmon. It was all gluten free and very tasty. A beautiful sunny day watching planes come and go and people on paddle boards. Except for the fact that you have to drive downtown... More

McCormick & Schmick's hosted my wedding reception on 4 July and the service was amazing! The food was delicious (especially the salmon with a wine-berry sauce) and the servers were all friendly. The restaurant was very accomodating and we had the large room with giant windows overlooking Lake Union. The view of the fireworks from the dock was great! I... More

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
