“Great food but the server pushed alcohol on us!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I realize that restaurants make most of their money from alcohol sales, however, I do not like it when I sit down and the server makes jokes about cocktail hour and pushes alcohol on you so hard that you might feel guilty or dull because you don't drink.
Other than that, this restaurant was very classy and worth seeking out.

“Chain restaurant with a local feel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We were delighted to be seated next to the Willamette River on such a gorgeous evening in August. Lovely cocktails served on the river front followed by exceptional quality seafood. It would have been nice to see more local seafood selections which was very limited, but the salmon I ordered was very good. My husband's meal of shrimp was also nice. The meal was nicely paced and the outdoor environment felt private. It was fun to watch the nightly groups of people gathering to go out on the dragon boats, as well as stand-up paddle boards and a variety of other watercraft. We felt this was a value and we will definitely return on another visit to Portland.

“Lovely outdoor patio, ok food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

Loved sitting by the marina, had a wonderful Mango Mojito. Server was abrupt & failed to ask us even once if we needed anything. Had to get silverware from another table. Food wasn't bad, just not memorable. Most at other tables seemed to be just enjoying cocktails & starters. If I return, I will just stick with that.

“Over-all a good place to dine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Great to sit by the harbor and relax with a good wine. The meal was good, and yes a bit pricey.
We did enjoy the ambience.

“Riverside Dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

McCormick & Schmick is conveniently located to all the hotels near the waterfront. The walk to this restaurant is easy and scenic. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Dress was very casual...shorts and flip flops were welcomed.
