Late night bar snack

Stopped in late on a Saturday night. Two beers and an order of calamari which was soggy and greasy. I suspect the kitchen had turned the fryers off and they didn't come back to operating temperature when they dropped the calamari in the oil. Other than that it was a nice looking place and the staff... read more

For a resturant that is very $$$ you would expect great service. Took 20 minutes for a server to come to the table, another 15 to get drinks, and 40 minutes to get our food. When the food came out several things were wrong, and forgotten. It was just a horrible experience, would not be back.

My extended family went to McCormick and Schmick's at National Harbor not long after it opened. We had a horrible experience from service to food. After that experience we said, "Never again!" Recently on a lovely Saturday afternoon, 2 of my friends and I were walking around National Harbor and decided to sit outside for some cocktails. One wanted to... More

Well, Went back to this establishment after a somewhat lack luster meal last year and I was not disappointed. Noisy environment to say the least, and the food was not what you would expect from a restaurant of this caliber. The "rockfish" was dry and the vegetables were cold and not cooked in the least. Two strikes!! Sorry not stepping... More

Obviously can't cope when there is a convention in the town! Kitchen seems to struggle when demand is high.....you'd think a restaurant like this would be able to handle fluctuating demands!

On the last night of our vacation stay at National Harbor, we went to McCormick and Schmick’s for dinner. The dining room and bar were packed when we arrived for our 7:00 p.m. reservation, but we were seated immediately. The loud overhead background music and noise from the dining room and the attached, open bar was a little overwhelming and... More

We went here to have a nice night out with the family. A little pricy, but food was good. I had the bone in ribye and it was tasty. Wife had the scallops and they gave her three on her plate.She said they were good and just enough, but I thought the portion was kind of light. Not bad for... More

Dinner took well over and hour to be served. Waiter understood our frustration and asked the manager to come over and he explained that they had some issues in the kitchen and took $20 off the bill. Food was good and served hot and fortunately we were not in a rush and enjoyed the beautiful sunset.

Definitely not the service and experience that we are accustomed to from McCormick & Schmick. Seared tuna salad was ALL greens and little to no tuna. The server was trying to make our visit a good one, but it was not his fault at all. This place has really lowered it's standards as far as food is concerned (this is... More

My search was for seafood and the waiter was very helpful with my selection and combination for sharing with my wife as we like variety but not large portions. Very tasty meal with the combination crabcake appetizer and combination entree seafood platter with salmon, shrimp. A pleasant dining experience
