We always go here after decorating our tree at Christmas in the Park. They have Happy Hour drinks and fare and a fabulous view of the tree lighting across the street. Although we like to sit outside, the last time we sat indoors because it was cold. Inside or out, it's a tradition we do every holiday season!

Can't give a full review since I just stopped by for happy hour drinks and oysters. The oysters were really good and the bar service was excellent. This location has great outdoor seating and rooms for private events. If you're downtown and in the area and want a quick snack and drink, this is great place to go. And make... More

We were celebrating our anniversary and went to McCormick & Schmick's for dinner. The food and service were excellent! We made reservations for 7:00 and they were very prompt at seating us as soon as we arrived. Our waiter was very friendly. We ordered drinks and an appetizer to share and asked if he would give us some time before... More

Had lunch there before a March Madness game with another couple. We had a reservation and were seated when we arrived. Service was friendly and professional. We had a calamari appetizer to share that was generous and fabulous ..... the vegetables that were mixed in (artichokes, carrots, jalapeños) were great. A couple of us has an herb crusted flounder that... More

We have been here a couple of times. The service and quality seemed to be getting worse. Friends wanted to go before a show, so I made reservations. When we arrived on time, we were told they over booked. They couldn't seat us. They invited us to sit on the patio for open seating. After 20 minutes of being ignored... More

Went in here for a quick lunch, stayed in a booth which was comfortable and choose a Cod sandwich. The Cod was cooked to perfection and the coleslaw was fantastic..

What an improvement made from last year's visit. We quickly noticed the "No Drinks For You" Bartender was no longer serving rude and condescending comments. This time around the ambiance was very pleasurable and relaxing. We enjoyed a great dinner and never had to send back our drinks!! Great job!!

Fantastic selection of seafood and drinks. We enjoyed a variety of starters and mains, all of which were very good quality. Service was polite and prompt and although expensive, a very enjoyable meal.

Food and service were wonderful at this restaurant. Had steak and lobster and my wife had rainbow trout. Both were delicious. Would highly recommend!
