Our server Paige was the best. Very seldom in this era do you find individuals who understand the concept of “Custom Service”; they are either aloof or overbearing, a Server should be neither. Paige demonstrated a balanced personality that made us feel that we were individuals and that our patronage was welcomed and appreciated. The service was timely and attentive.... More

I had a great lunch with my mom at McCormick & Schmicks. We didn't want anything to heavy and wanted to do shared plates so we ordered appetizers and they did not disappoint. Our waitress was great! We had the stuffed mushrooms, calamari, and mussels. It was all delicious!

Made reservations for a party of 10 for 11-25-16. Requested a round table so everyone could converse.We were put at a long rectangle table crowded in a space between window tables and booths.The server was terrible.I guess the lighting is so low so you can't see what you're eating. One member of our party had oyster on the half shell.Several... More

We knew this chain is more known for their seafood, but we were interested in a quiet evening with a good steak and bottle of wine. McCormick met all those requirements with very good service included. We arrived with reservations at 6:30pm and there were lots of seating choices. By the time we left 2 hrs later, the place was...

Good food and very good drinks. I have had many Mai Tai's around the world, but this one was one of the best. The food was well prepared and priced reasonably. Good service the entire visit.

Can't lose. Food is excellent cooked at the right temperatures. The waitress was very pleasant which made the food taste even better. My boss was in town for a conference and decided to try this place for the first time. Not a big fan of chains but, this chain doesn't seem to have a weak link! I would give it... More

Stopped in for a beer on the patio before going to another restaurant. Service was outstanding. James, our waiter, was friendly, prompt, professional, and knowledgable. Beautiful afternoon to enjoy a beer.

Branden did an outstanding job! He was was meticulous and his attention to detail was superb! From the appetizer recommendation, description of entrees, pouring of the lobster bisque and ensuring we had everything we needed while training a new person was amazing. We had an excellent experience because of him.

I was very disappointed in the food and the service. We were seated quickly and had a fantastic table with a view of the Capital Wheel. It was almost 10 minutes before our server appeared and he did not introduce himself. They were out of the only Sauvignon Blanc that was available by the glass and they also did not... More
