Great menu for both lunch and dinner with fast service for lunch; dinner is a bit more relaxed. Great specials and a very good wine list.

We met friends and family here for a great dinner. the staff is very helpful too. I really like the wedge salad. They do it right, not like some other places. I had the trout, and I would have liked more almonds on it, but it was good.

We stayed at the Embassy Suites in Irvine. We walked across the street to McCormick & Schmick's. We were not super hungry, so we sat in the bar and had soup and salad. The clam chowder was one of the best I have ever had. The server was awesome! Even though it is a bit pricy, it was worth it!

A few of the guys I work with and I decided to stop here for dinner when we were in Irvine for a business trip. We'd all been to the one in Chicago (which was great) and it was wakling distance from our hotel. We arrived around 6:30 and should have known something was up when we saw the restaurant... More

If you are in the mood for good seafood locally, you can't go wrong here. This chain restaurant provided a nice atmosphere, good seafood and excellent service. It was directly across the street from the Embassy Suites, so very convenient if you are staying there. Front desk even provides a coupon for a free appetizer!

We usually love McCormick's and have been to many. This one left a lot to be desired. The fish I ordered was very blah with no flavor and the waitress had no idea what she was doing. Very poor and inattentive service.

Fantastic experience. Birthday for our son in law. Good price for value. Great waiter--sorry I don't remember his name. Would definitely return. Within walking distance from the Wyndham Irvine. Dessert was great also.

Great looking place; good service; etc. 4-5 star... Until my turkey burger came. Dry & tasteless. I was hungry so I ate it. Should have stayed home... My wife's is 10x better. She adds a grated apple, cranberries & basil, topped with cranberry mustard. This was very poor fare for a well-reputed establishment. But restaurants are & should be about... More
