4 of us went in to have a few cocktails. Waiter was very rude. We had one drink and left as fast as we could to find a placenthat actually wanted business. NEVER go there.

Service was great, but food was lukewarm. Appetizers and entrees were all good, but barely warm? Beautiful location. Next time we will try Redwood

Went to McCormick & Schmick's for lunch with my brother and his wife who frequent the National Harbor at their recommendation. First off, the Nation Harbor and DC area alone is a bit pricey so you need to understand that before you go. M&S has a great lunch menu with plenty of delicious options for all. I had the A1...

Romantic and upscale dining. Had a great meal of filet mignon that was perfectly cooked and a good size portion. The red wine with it was smooth and a good pairing.

We went for a weekend retreat. The restaurant was full. The waiter was nice, but the timing on the service was not so good. Drink arrived late and forgot the salads. The steaks were good enough to forget the other problems.

The food was excellent but the service was poor. The time frame to have the appetizer was too long. I will still visit but i am sure they were overwhelmed.

Have eaten at a number of these restaurants around the country, but mainly in my home state of Oregon. Was there last night with my wife, met friends at the bar.

I had the wedge salad and shrimp chowder soup. Both were really good. We also had a calamari appetizer and it was a large portion a few people could share.

Horrid. Our appetizer and entree came within 80 seconds of each other after a 20 minute wait. The fish was to come with asparagus/pancetta risotto. I ended up with a plate full of mushrooms of which I am allergic and not a grain of rice! It was horrid. Never going back again.
