McCormick's & Schmitz

I have eaten at McCormick's in many cities and this is one of the best. The fish entrees are excellent and many have the McCormick's tweek to the flavor or complimentary sides.

We were told by the Hostess that the computer might have let us in, but she couldn't seat us. Only took ~45 minutes after our reservation time, but add the amount we were early & that's a long time to stand. They should really get some seating for waiting since there were so many parties waiting. That being said, the... More

I hosted a group of 4 of my employees for dinner and we were very impressed. I cannot say enough about the treatment and attention that we received. We had made reservations and our table was ready when we arrived. Unfortunately we were placed in a confined area next to a very large party and the space, while workable, was... More

This is about the third time we've eaten at this particular McCormick & Schmick's and I'm pretty sure is it gonna be the last. The food is not terrible, but it isn't great by any stretch. On this occassion, we had a party of five adults and two kids...some of the food arrived sorta warm, some barely warm, but none... More

Great views of the Potomac from the National Harbor location. Food is consistently good as well as service. Nice atmosphere too! Can get pretty crowded on nights and especially weekends.

Had dinner here to celebrate a peers milestone anniversary with the company, and I wasn't disappointed. They made the meal enjoyable and topped off a great evening. They specialized the menus with my colleagues name on it to recognize his accomplishment, and the food was amazing. I ended up ordering the Pesto Chiliean Sea Bass and I wasn't disappointed with...

1st attempt at a special bottle of wine-did not have the advertised vintage. Substitute was good. Shared appetizer of stuffed mushrooms bland for both of us. Wife's lobster cobb salad looked nice but all tasted like just brought out of the refrigerator, lobster sub-par. Let management know, they were very kind. My seared ahi tuna was good, not great.
