I was in town for a conference and it was my last night there, I call the restaurant to make sure there was no dress code as I was wearing jeans and a hoodie. I was advised that there wasn't and that I would be served. Once I arrived the young lady that seats guest totally ignored me and id... More

We sat in the Bar area to get the happy hour food and drinks one day we had someone to help us and the next we were a leper.

We wanted to come to National Harbor for my mother's day treat. I booked a table over a week ago and could only get a 10:30 am time slot for lunch. So we took it. The waitress was hardly ever in our sights. We got to sit outside, which was lovely, however, we never saw her. I asked for caesar... More

This has been a completely horrible experience. Booked a table for 7 for a 7:15 reservation. We were seated at about 7:18. It's now 8:51 and we have not received any food yet. I can't comment on the taste or value of the food because we have not sniffed it. Avoid this place for holidays and other busy times. The... More

We had a great waiter looked after us really well. The mussels were great and so was the rest of the food. The bar was full and our area outside had a great atmosphere.

We had a terrible visit !! It took 45 minutes to even be acknowledged and get drinks. Then drinks were not up to par at all. Food finally came and had to be sent back to be corrected. Drinks are empty and no one around? We were there hour and a half. Terrible service and food not so great. Won't... More

I have eaten at McCormick's before (3x's in DC) and twice at this location. The last time was about 4 years ago. All I can say is, "What happened"? The food was blah, blah, blah boring. The portions of the food.... really folks? Unacceptable. I think some Adult Senior community dining hall food tasted better. The only positive thing I... More

Went for lunch today, and all was good. Food was on time, so so, considering the repuatauion. Then the waitress brought out the second rounds of drinks and dropped a,glass of soda on one of friends. Ok, the mood of the table changed dramatically.....not for the better. The waitress was apologetic, but with soda in the food, there was no... More

I've dined at numerous locations and this was by far the least enjoyable. The food was not up to normal standards at McCormick and schmicks. Or god came out all at once. Appetizers, soup and entrees. Fish and chips were ok but saturated in oil. The waiter was more interested in having us come to another establishment he worked at.... More
