I recently ate lunch at the McCormick and Schmick's in Washington DC. The soups weren't hot, the butter tasted bad, the fried shrimp were fair. My biggest complaint however was the background music. I complained 3 times about the loud music with the bass beat,...More

If you are a thorough tripadvisor researcher you will have already seen the flags going up about this restaurant. When we made our new years Eve reservation for 10:30 p.m., we were told that time was no problem; that champagne at midnight was a certainty....More

M&S is a very good restaurant, with excellent seafood selections. Their speciality is clearly dinner, however, as this Penn Quarter DC location was all but empty for lunch, with correspondingly slow (but friendly nonetheless) service. I like their happy hour and dinner ambience much, much...More

Mussels were TINY; parmesan crusted flounder tasted like something out of a sports bar, so awful that I asked for "something" to put on it; butternut squash was hard as a rock as were the undercooked veggie medley. The waitress was beyond subpar and actually...More

We turned up pretty late with no booking and it looked like most of the diners were finishing up (about 9.30pm). We had been turned away from two other local restaurants as their kitchens were closing or they were closed for private functions. We had...More

This is a chain restaurant and its food is indicative of that fact. Had the lobster cobb salad today and could barely see the lobster through the huge pile of chopped salad. Worse, it was the saltiest dish I've had in years. Service, while polite,...More
