This is the first McCormick & Schmick's I've eaten at, so it's possible the pricing was high due to location. I had a Caesar salad,blackened Mahi Mahi and a flourless chocolate torte. All were excellent. A companion had a sea bass special and the portion was definitely smaller than other dishes. With a glass of wine, my bill topped $50 before tip. Not entirely unreasonable, but I've had meals of similar quality in a similar atmosphere for less.

This is a return visit to McCormick & Schmick’s Cincinnati. We usually stay in the downtown area because it is close to the events we are visiting. The restaurant is within walking distance of the hotel. The restaurant is a great place to go for dinners. The ambiance is pleasant without too much noise. It can get crowed and booked up on the weekends especially if there are events in town so make reservations early. The prime filet mignon just melts in your mouth. Fish entrées are equally good but they do seem to run out of certain fish like Rainbow Trout. The bar has a large selection of wines by the glass or bottle as well as specialty drinks especially the martinis. Service was and always has been outstanding. Highly recommend McCormick & Schmick’s Cincinnati.

Was here before in 2008 -and I can tell things are not great; yes, the place is crowded because of its good location downtown -but I haven't found anything exceeding expectation -not the food (which was rather average) nor the service (trying but not really- you could see it was a forced act).

McCormick & Schmick's tries to be an upscale restaurant but it misses the mark. The food is good but not above average. Our server was warm, friendly and attentive.
