We had just arrived in Seattle and wanted to get some lunch after a long flight. Walked over to McCormick and Schmicks and sat down to some really fine seafood. the service was exceptional and the place is older with a lot of character. The oysters that were pan fried over a sauce were just fantastic. The food overall is... More

The restaurant is located on Lake Union. Our table was by the window and had the most amazing view of the lake and the city! The service was excellent. There were 4 in our party. Everyone ordered something different and everyone enjoyed their meals. I ordered the steamed mussels appetizer. It was fabulous! The mussels were cooked perfectly and the... More

Okay, the food wasn't anything to write home about, it is still pretty good. Add the view and pretty good turns into really good! We have eaten there before, down in the bar/grill, and enjoyed it more. This time we had lunch; the food was just pretty good. Next time we will go to Pike St Market for lunch.

NOTE: I know that the date posted says August 2014, but we visited August 2012, but we never wrote a review about our... experience. I finally decided to write a review and warn others. First, we arrived at the restaurant and we were seated right away. My wife and I used to love this chain, and we were looking forward... More

Loved the oysters .. we came for a late night dinner on arrival in Seattle. Perhaps we were late so service was a little gruff but we enjoyed the meal, and have to say the oysters (we tried all three kinds) were the highlight for us

This was a disappointment. It's a chain so we thought it's a safe bet on the food quality. Wrong - the food was pretty bad. Steak was overcooked and the fish tasted terrible. Either the food is not fresh or they need a new cook. Even the bread was stale. Our kids hardly touched their food and we had to... More

It was a sunny lunch meal and the view was great. Well worth the trouble to find parking. I recommend it for a place to just eat and watch the boats.
