This is a great place to come if the view matters; the view is spectacular, and close up, not something off in the distance. It's the standard McCormick and Schmick's fare, assorted fish and meats cooked properly, and usually delivered with outstanding service. (I note a couple of reviews that dis the service; I'm sure that it's happened, but I've eaten here with family about a dozen times, and the service has always been somewhere between outstanding and very good, even with a waiter-in-training.) The only disappointment is that they used to serve better local breads when they were just calling themselves Harborside (w/o the M&S label). I know it's a chain, but c'mon, guys, there are a couple of bakeries in Seattle that bake some of the world's finest breads; please go back to them! By the way, it's also a family-friendly place, and there's lots of room between the tables to keep it comfortable.
