Love the look of this restaurant. Leather, leather, leather. The food was very good and the service was fast and friendly. I would definitely eat there again.

“Good happy hour”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

My spouse and I met another friend for Happy Hour and they had a good, reasonably priced food menu ... In fact, it was the least expensive meal we had the entire time we were in DC, including drinks. The bartender makes a great Cosmo.

“Wonderful Server but only an Average Meal”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

The best part of my meal was the brand new server who tried so hard to please our group. It was extremely busy so my party and I chose a table on the outdoor sidewalk patio. All of us had been sightseeing all day and friends suggested meeting at McCormick & Schmick's on 'K' Street and 16th Street NW. It was across the street from their hotel and convenient to anywhere in Washington D.C. We all had a drink and the common comment was they were very weak almost watery. My expectations were further disappointed by the food that was generally underwhelming. The weather was perfect and the place was nice and a steady line of customers came in and out of the establishment. The restroom was immaculate the interior of the restaurant was very well appointed and I suspect another try might bring a different result as far as the food went. Our server made the evening memorable and her efforts to salvage the dining experience were successful. The meal was way too expensive for food just above the quality of Arby's. The bill was just about $200.00 and would have been $40.00 at Applebee's. The highlight of the night was seeing the actor who played Lt. Dan from the Forest Gump movie.

“Good Food and Service but not Great”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

The service was good so far as taking our orders and delivering the food warm and fresh although it took three trips to get all 8 of us our dinners. The server didn't seem to know the menue when asked about how the food was prepared and what came with it.
For the most part the food was good. There was 1 stake with our group and it looked as though it was from the Golded Corral. The shark with wild mushrooms was excellant while my Mahi Mahi was average.
Overall, not a bad meal but for the cost I expected a bit more.

“National Harbor”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

The below average service during a quiet night was not what I expect from this chain. Happy hour food was not cooked properly by their admission. Bartender experience level was way below their other properties. Suggest ordering wine or beer.
