I went to this restaurant with a couple of co-workers to unwind. We sat outside in the beautiful sun. Only had time for a cocktail because I had prior engagements. Please order the Dulce Sangria when you go! Words can't describe how good this is! Hopefully next time, I'll be able to indulge in the cuisine but the Sangria alone... More

I keep coming back for my 2 favorite meals: Avocado/mango crab stack salad, and lobster mashed potatoes. Delish! Also this restaurant has very nice private booths for up to 6 people. Always ask while making a reservation there.

Stopped for a late lunch about 2 pm on a Monday and was surprised to be one of only two occupied tables. Have not been here for several years because their wine list prices went thru the roof and the decor was dark, dreary, and worn. Happy to see they replaced the carpeting, restored the booth decor, and have reintroduced... More

This chain delivers some variation from location to another, despite similar menus. In Reston, this restaurant has an active bar, but a rather mediocre kitchen. Grilled vegetables were oily. Sauces on the the side were worth ignoring. Even simply grilled fish came with oil or butter overshadowing the grilled flavor. The shellfish from the raw bar was overpriced and under... More

Love the stained glass and dark wood panelling which creates an atmosphere of elegance and class. Fish and other dishes are fresh, expertly prepared, and while not cheap, the prices are reasonable considering the quality. Wait staff varies, but generally good. Excellent bar with scratch made cocktails and good but reasonably priced wine list. TVs let you track the game,... More

I was in the mood for seafood. I was not in the mood to be royally ripped off, but that's how it felt. It began when I could not pull out the chair on the carpeting. Carpeting in restaurants below the tables and chairs is just gross. The chopped salad we shared for $8.50 was good, and I was enthusiastic... More

I was going to pass up on a casual business lunch and I am glad that I changed my mind. The place is a bit pricey but the "Fries and Lobster Sandwich" is worth the cost.

Wow, private dinning. We were a group of 5 and we were given a private room type table. We felt so special. The food was awesome and presented beautifully. Staff friendly and service good. One of our most pleasant dining experience.

The Seabass was perfectly cooked and lobster mash amazing! Our server was efficient and adapted the children at the table. Chocolate purse dessert is to die for!!

This was my third visit to McCormick & Schmick's, however while the service is normally good, this time it was nothing short of deplorable. I was there for a business dinner with three other colleagues with intention to treat them to a very nice dining experience, however that was far from the case. The underlying issue was apparently that our... More
