“Excellent Food & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The food was well prepared. Some of the portions can be small for the price but overall excellent food. The wait staff are all very friendly and provide exceptional service.

“Great happy hour value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Dined there twice during a stay at National Harbor. My first experience was definitely a "5". Sat at the bar, had Joy as my bartender/server. Great lemon drop martini and good selection of bar food for a great price. Went back with my husband on another night. Sat in the bar area to take advantage of the happy hour specials. Ordered drinks which were very good. Joy was at the bar, so asked that she make the next round of drinks which were great.

“Excellent food, great wine selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

We had a big dinner here and the food was fantastic, including the desserts. The wine selection was top notch too. The staff was friendly and helpful and they remained cheerful even though we stayed late.
I loved the crab and the seafood.

“I wasn't really impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Went to McCormick and Schmick for a birthday celebration. The back room was reserved, but we were not seated there. It was a party of 40 in the middle of the restaurant. The servers seems confused and it too forever to just get them to take our drink orders. Everything took a long time to get. Drinks, water, appetizers, dinner, and dessert! I wouldn't advise for a large party. The food was good, but not as good as I would have expected for the price.

“Excellent Meal and Nice Environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

My wife and I ate at McCormick & Schmick, National Harbor MD on 12/6/13. We'd talked about trying this restaurant for a long time, and finally went ahead. We were a little early, but were able to be seated. Shrimp Cocktail and Maryland crab soup were terrific. Lobster ravioli and seafood trio entrees were also terrific. Restaurant had a nice crowd, and an office Christmas party appeared to be underway. Great food, very enjoyable evening, and we plan to return again. There were lots of good things on the menu!
