Our taxi was late and by the time we got to the restaurant at 9PM we were pretty much the only folk there. I am sure the staff would have liked to close the restaurant but they never showed it. My oysters were small (but it was August) but very flavoursome. I ate the seafood linguine for main course. I... More

We were not disappointed by any of the dishes the four of us ordered. Trout, salmon and halibut. All delicious. The booth we had was comfortable and perfect for conversation. The service was attentive and knowledgable. Good wine list.

Looks a bit dated but I like the old-style feel. Great local draft micro-brews at the bar. Excellent service.

Great salmon at a reasonable price. This restaurant has been around for a long time, and knows how to serve great seafood.

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
