Last night I met a friend for dinner. She chose the restaurant. I have always found McCormick's to be overpriced, but was not unwilling. As I gave the valet my keys, I was told that they now have a $3 parking charge. Really? In Irvine? I asked the maître d' when this was imposed and why there was no sign.... More

We come here every Xmas and bring the whole family as they can accommodate large parties.. The food is not bad... We had Chicken, salmon, halibut and it was good.

Excellent service from the bar for dinner and cocktails. Our waiter/bar tender was very attentive and friendly. He made us some great cocktails and made dinner recommendations. He really knows his stuff. The food was good and the atmosphere spot on.

I stayed at the wyndham hotel in Irvine and one of the front desk clerks Daniel convinced me to eat at McCormick & Schmick's and gave me a free appetizer voucher I was very happy about that. Great food and it was within walking distance of the hotel I stayed at.

We have the Landry's card for rewards at their restaurants. The food and service are always great! Happy Hour is always good too! Just across the street from Embassy Suites Irvine, so it is very convenient!

My wife & I decided to eat someplace nice for my birthday and we chose McCormick & Schmick's. It was a great choice. We made reservations and arrived a little early and were seated very quickly.

But the worse was the attitude of the waitress toward our food intolerances. She sighed, she screwed up her face, she tapped impatiently -- I was stunned by her... More
