“disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

this was a huge disappointment for us. While the service was so-so, the steak was only average as well and wasn't cooked properly. My husband prefers his steaks cooked Pittsburgh style. When the Waiter brought it out he said, I guess this isn't PIttsburgh style, is it? My husband ate it anyway. But when you drop 40.00 for a steak, you expect it to be cooked the way you request it. We also seemed to be always looking for our waiter. will not visit this chain again in any city. We'll stick to Ruth's Chris and Del Frisco's

“Nice steak - not great though”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Very stylish and very suave place - really enjoyed the place but as it was game night they were VERY busy and maybe that was reflected in my steak - nice, but not GREAT.

“Good business convention dinning”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

I attend a convention at the World Congress and needed a restaurant close to the convention center for a small business dinner. My meal at McCormic & Schmick's was surprisingly good ... much better than I have ever had at that chain. The service was friendly and attentive. Overall, it was an excellent evening and I would recommend it if you are in the convention center area.
