McCormick and Schmick's had become an icon in seafood restaurants before the 2012 takeover by Landry's. My last visit to this particular restaurant was in 2010, so I wasn't too sure if I'd be disappointed by the place. Happily, I wasn't the least bit disappointed. I lucked out into being in... read more

I reserved a table for 16 people and everyone was very pleased with the venue and the food. Johnny was our primary server and did a wonderful job. He called us a taxi and then helped us out when it arrived. You don't find service like that everywhere.

We went to McCormick's at the recommendation of a local we met at Safeco field. We loved it! We tried the fresh oysters picked by our waitress and who knew they could be so good. Our main course meals were fantastic as were desert.

We had an excellent dinner here. Very traditional decor, old-style waiters, and comfortable ambiance. Along with some pretty darn good fish. I had clam chowder, a seafood medley with shrimp, salmon, scallops, stuffed shrimp, and key lime pie. All wonderful. My partner had an awesome trout, with a chocolate flourless torte. Our waiter was very funny, with a sly wit,... More

I have eaten at McCormick's for many years but this is the first time I have reviewed it. Simply put I love this place. The service is always spot on and this time was no different. Doug treated me very well. I went for something light this time and had a ceasar salad and a cup of clam chowder. I... More

After a 5-hour-long walking and shopping in the steep and busy streets of Seattle on a cool February weather, a Seafood Gumbo at McCormick's was the perfect choice for lunch. My husband ordered something else but as soon as he heard what I wanted, he changed his order. As he should, because after a long day of walking, the McCormick's... More

An old friend and I scheduled a lunch at the Downtown Seattle McCormicks, but at the last minute, he couldn't make it. So, I went ahead and ordered their McCormick's Gumbo. I've had true Louisiana gumbo cooked by a native and it is hard for any restaurant to match this. The McCormick's version includes chicken, shrimp, andouille sausage and vegetables.... More

Some of my friends love to meet every year, in a new city, try out new restaurants and explore the place. We decided to meet in Seattle. We came here on a recommendation and were excited to try this place. We were immediately seated and our server offered us drinks. The food was pricey and there were not a whole... More

The menu is good as it has a good selection but this restaurant kitchen closes at 10:30. The tuna plate is good and on wednesdays you get prawns or oysters for a dollar each. Good eat bad place average service.
