A tad disorganized, but still tasty!

Let me say first that I LOVE McCormick and Schmick's Harborside. But the last time we visited, they were a tad disorganized. There was some miscommunication. Something. Maybe it was the wind storm that tore up their patio over the weekend, and they were just catching up. Maybe we were there too... read more

When I am waiting for the seaplane at Kenmore air I often go here for lunch or a quick drink. A wonderful view of Lake Washington and they always offer a lovely fish special!

We have come here for twenty years. Looks like they have remodeled. And with the new look came horrible service. The place looks fully staffed, and at about half capacity. There is no reason to wait almost a half hour to be acknowledged. May be my last time coming here.

McCormick & Schmick's has been a traditional choice for fresh delicious seafood and chowder. It is served in a professional manner and is always delicious. You will not be disappointed going there for a rather elegant diner or lunch.

We have always enjoyed this restaurant on trips to Seattle. Eating great seafood while watching seaplanes take off and land from Lake Union-what can be better! This time, after a 5 year absence, service was slow and the waitress appeared confused, food was good but not exceptional. The only thing that was still there was the view! the change in... More

The restaurant is coveniantly located and parking is available too. The view is stunning. Seafood and Stakes were delicious. Not cheap but worth the money. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Arrived for an 8:30 reservation on the 4th of July. Only good point - they sat us by 8:35 or so. The day before, they called me to warn me we had a two hour limit due to high reservation volume for the 4th. After about 15 minutes, I flagged someone down to take a drink and appetizer order. They... More

The restaurant was near our hotel, so we walked there one evening. The views on Lake Union were beautiful. Unfortunately, we missed the happy hour. The service and food was good. The regular menu is on the pricey side. The happy hour would have been an awesome deal!

The food was great inside---tried sitting out on the deck on a Thursday evening and couldn't find a clean table or anyone to clear it. Sat for about 10 minutes and then went inside. From there the service went on to be very good!! Food was very good.
