I frequently dine here when visiting Seattle. It has a long history and is still one of the best in town for service and quality of food.

We were bummed when our hometown location of McCormicks & Schmick’s closed a number of years ago – we could always count on M&S when we wanted good, well-prepared, fresh fish. So we were looking forward to the same kind of experience while recently in Seattle. Disappointed is the best descriptor. First impression was that the interior is very tired... More

After walking all over Seattle, my husband and I decided on impulse to have dinner here. We didn't realize it was a chain at first, and it certainly didn't seem like a chain. The waiter was very patient with our questions and made some good suggestions. We were very pleased with the food and the wine selection was good.

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza on 6th Ave which was only a 5 minute walk away. The food was excellent, we opted for fish, and waiter service very attentive and pleasant. Would highly recommend based upon our visit.

One thing I love about chain restaurants is you know what you're getting! I have never been disappointed in the food/service at any of them - also been to their places in Boston, Beverly Hills, Downtown LA and Burbank. My mum and I were visiting Seattle and she has food allergies and is quite fussy about her food - we... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner and attentive service, but this original has been so well replicated by the rest of the chain that we could have easily been in an M&S in Virginia or Maryland. We had reservations for a weeknight but they were not busy and seated us early. The wine list is extensive, but the server provided good... More

My wife and I decided to try out the reputation of McCormick and Schmick -we have their excellent fish cookbook back in the UK. The surroundings were traditional dark wood and we were given seats in an alcove with a good view of the diners, of which there were very few on a Friday night. The waiter was over the... More

We enjoy good seafood restaurants. McCormick's, however, is in a league of its own. Absolutely outstanding, from the greeting at the door to the last bite of dessert. We have never been to a restaurant where the menu is so incredibly vibrant and creative, and where the chefs are able to always create truly memmorable masterpieces. Our most recent visit... More

Items may be a bit spendy but it has a great atmosphere and a lunch menu that covers all the bases. I just wanted a sandwich and really enjoyed the sourdough avacado BLTA, while my friend had the northwest Salmon saute and raved about it. Both of our meals were certainly prepared by someone who knew what they were doing... More
