Nice view, good food, service bad

I've been to a number of McCormick & Schmick's and this was by far my worst experience. Food quality is good, presentation and taste above average, but not outstanding. In this case however the service was severely lacking. We were on the patio which is probably at least part of the problem. We never saw out waitress. I didn't get... More

Menu was surprisingly limited. VERY crowded in the bar area and restaurant. Had to wait 45 minutes for our table. Food was average, prices a little high for what we got. Waiter less than friendly and not accomodating. Overall disappointed in the experience.

I met a good friend for dinner here last night, we sat on the patio overlooking the water and Ferris wheel. Service was horrible. We waited a good 15 minutes without anyone coming to our table. We even asked a server if he could locate our waiter, but again nothing. Finally, I asked to speak to a manager and then... More

Got there during the happy hour and sat in the bar area. The table had been cleared, but was dirty. Took awhile for the waitress to show up, she didn't seem to like her job. They do have a pretty good selection of discounted happy hour foods (4-7pm), if it wasn't for that we probably would have gone elsewhere.

Restaurants reputation is on the line with this location. Service horrible, food mediocre! Harbor view will not help. Go to one of the other 29 restaurants at the harbor. This one is absolutely not worth your time or money!

As usual, a consistent quality of food and service. A little small dining area. The bar is open to the dining room. Very noisy,especially during a sports event. Check out the upcoming TV events before booking. Hard to converse when the bar is noisy. It wasn't even happy hour.

Food was good but the service was spotty. We waited a fair bit of time to order and then waited again for our starters. Within 5 minutes of getting the starters our main course showed up. Enforce half the people even started the first course. Very disjointed but the food was good!

Fairly long waiting time after you order food. Quality of food was average. The place does have outdoor seating and a good view of the harbor. So its reasonable to eat here if you have enough time to wait for the order.

When traveling my wife and I enjoy the happy hour specials at area eateries trying to save a few $$. We saw that McCormick's had several half price appetizers on the menu for the happy hour and decided to make a meal out of them. We each ordered two different apps. and shared them which was like a buffet supper.... More
