Wait for your floatplane trip here

Even at the bar, the view of the water was great. We were killing time before a float plane trip, and this was just the ticket. Cocktails, a good bowl of clam chowder, and a "jumbo lump crab tower" really hit the spot.

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.

Seattle is a great seafood city with many terrific restaurants. McCormick & Schmick’s Harborside is a on the upper end of the scale with a beautiful location on South Lake Union not too far from Seattle Center. It’s a place we typically take out of town guests or work colleagues for a nice meal. This time of year (late Spring... More

Because this location was an easy walk from our hotel, we visited three times, twice for happy hour on the patio and once in the dining room. Patio service was slow but ok. This review pertains to dining room experience. We ordered appetizer and drinks to start and received the appetizer 15 minutes before receiving the drink order. The second... More

They've become an upscale Red Lobster. Do yourself a favor and go a block north and eat at Pasta Freska. This chain has significantly gone downhill. I wouldn't be surprised if they close this location or the chain goes under given the poor experiences I've had at Harborside and Bellevue over the last 2-3 years. We gave the Harborside location...

Reservations a must:Booked a month in advance--- table for 3 at 1:30 P.M. seated immediately---Nice booth, other tables and immediate views of Lake Union available---full bar on the side....Parking is lower level partially subsidized by the restaurant---or about 50 Yds. further west and South is free. Year after year this buffet, a family tradition, appears to be less attended,and with... More

We went for our 25th anniversary, very disappointing. The service was slow, the restaurant was very empty yet took forever to get bread. My grilled shrimp was VERY salty my husband's fish and chips were cold. Very pricey for an adequate meal. We were given a free dessert which was nice but the decaf coffee I ordered didn't arrive until... More

Went for Valentine's Day with my husband. Terrific menu selections, what each of us had was wonderful! Service was very good, especially since the place was very busy on that special night. Of course, the visit was a bit pricey but well worth it for a special occasion.

we stopped in for drinks before heading to dinner elsewhere. the cocktails were so perfectly mixed, without the pretension that many of the "craft" bartenders in seattle seem to have. not to mention, the bartender has one of the most infectious laughs we've ever heard. atmosphere was perfect. this was absolutely great for what we needed.

The food was way overpriced and not very good at all. Matter of fact my son threw up his dinner just outside the door. He had chicken parmesan. It was that bad!
