Fairly empty but seated in direct line of the back door.
Forgot an appetizer.
Food above average.
The waiter and staff really didn’t help us enjoy our wedding anniversary. They didn’t care.
the price was high. the food was mediocre:
-the Chilean seabass had the consistency of jello which was offputting, and the portion size was small. I wish I ordered something else. It's not a dish you should be proud of.
-My grandson's new York strip was just okay. He said he wished we had saved the money and cooked steaks at home because our steaks are way better.
-My wife and grandson both commented that the ceasar salad dressing tasted like bottled dressing. just ok.
The food at M & S is incredible. We had the Maryland rockfish which came with mussels and a crabmeat side. The service was also great. The server was always near but not intrusive.
Terrible service from entry to end. Reservations don’t mean anything here and with so many choices in the area skip and go elsewhere.
Waiter did not Do a great job always rushing of food and customer service Was not good.
Thank you so much for supporting veterans! The Veterans' Menu was excellent, and the service was wonderful!
Appreciate the there support of our military on memorial day. Great food and great service.
I attended as a veteran for the Veterans Day meal.
Good service by the waitstaff and food was prepared well and quickly
Thanks for honoring veterans! The service, food and overall experience was great. An excellent spot to take family and friends. I would recommend this restaurant to my friends.
Memorial Day Veterans Salute! Thank you!
We had a great experience at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. Will definitely return soon.
Fantastic service. Great food.
Service excellent food terrible and COLD. We will never go here again!
I was served RAW chicken!!! This a huge big deal and should never happen in a restaurant. When I couldn’t find my server after asking two other people to locate him I asked for the manager. She was very lackluster about the whole ideal and apologized and took it away to get fixed. After waiting twenty minutes for my new meal to arrive and after my family already finished my meal a new dish was finally brought out that was half the size of the original and I didn’t even take one bite of the original order. After I expressed my disgust to the waiter the manager once again came over and said well I’ll check with the chef but it only suppose to be 6 ounces!!! Really!!!! Now I wasn’t expecting my entree to be free because I did it it but it would have been nice to offer at least something like “let me buy you dessert or how about I get your drink for you for our mistake!!!” Nothing was offered except I’m sorry. Will never eat at any McCormick & Schmick’s again!!!
The host was rude advise he do not be at the front with such an attitude he wasnt aware of table availability no eye contact no connection with guest upon walking in.
This is a great restaurant, but when we attended on Mother's Day, they had a condensed menu which was disappointing. I went there, expecting the regular selection and was told that several items were not prepared for that day. Why would you condense the menu when expecting a large crowd? The food was also great, but I don't think the quantity is enough for the price that is requested.
My family had a disappointing visit at this location on Mother’s Day. We were there after 1 PM and the restaurant was not busy.
The service was incredibly slow and we were frequently looking for our server to get beverages refilled or address some other issue. Three of our group were wanting Fish and Chips but that was not on the menu. However it was on the children’s menu (said to be a smaller portion) so I asked if it was possible to get that for adults if we paid an upgraded price or a double order. Initially we were told no but overhearing our discussion about an upscale restaurant not being very accommodating of customers, we were allowed to get the order. What we got was three orders of kids fish and fries that were not warm and not crispy (obviously had been premade and sitting awaiting a kid order). If they could not provide freshly made hot food, they should not have agreed to serve an off menu item. When an additional serving was ordered for a hungry boy, it was freshly made and very good.
The salad and dessert very good but the lack of attentive service and the fiasco with the fish and chips made this a disappointing visit.
My Mother and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves
The food was fabulous!! The service was lousy! The Server brought bread with no plates, he had to be reminded twice. the Calamari arrived with no plates, by the time we got the plates the food was getting cold.The server leaned across both of us to get dirty plates from the appetizer. It all went down hill from there. The server was acting like a nervous trainee. the surrounding staff seemed to be watching us all the time. The server even reached across our arms to grab plates, fill water glasses with no notice.
This visit was very good. We love our server Justin. He is excellent. Always making certain our drinks are refilled, and checking to see, if table needed anything. Keep in mind this location is rarely quiet, if that bothers you, probably not where you want to dine.
Waited 25 mins to get a cocktail at the bar because we got 2 waitress who both messed up the order. When we got to the table the server was slow to get our drink orders, even slower to get them and dinner was good but follow up service at table was poor
Our waiter was a little slow and somewhat quirky....
Just visiting DC wanted to try the restaurant out compared to the one in Kansas City. Food was much better in Kansas City.
Good service and good food. Maybe pull back a bit on the amount of butter on the Simply Grilled Salmon dish.
Great menu with a variety of choices. All food was prepared perfectly and the atmosphere quite nice even with several large groups spread throughout. Our server was good and was very prompt with every request
We had an excellent Easter brunch. I found the experience very positive.
My first time at the Crystal City location. I usually go to the one at the Inner Harbor, Baltimore. The Baltimore location is usually a great all around experience. We even spent Thanksgiving there. The Crystal City restaurant was not up to expectation. Everything was good except the food. My wife had a Salmon dish off the "special salmon menu" which she said was bland and tasteless. She barely ate any of the meal. I had the New York strip steak which was average at best. I feel i payed WAY to much for an average meal.
I was expecting more flavor and better food presentation. Secret sauce was missing ! Bread was under baked.
My fiancee and I had dinner at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - Crystal City. We were excited going to the restaurant for the firs time. But something we ate in our meals made us very sick. It was unexpected and I am very disappointed about that because the next day, Sunday, we were food sick, not feeling well all day.
Even though we signed-up for the Landry's Select Club, not sure we will coming back...
Everything you'd expect for a higher end restaurant. Well worth the price.
Overall the experience was good. We had an excellent waiter named Michael that made experience good. From a food perspective the experience wasn't the best as the location ran out of mashed potatoes, which is the main side for most of the dishes offered. Although a different side was offered, it was under cooked. Nonetheless a good experience. Thanks for the great service Michael and front counter staff as they too provided a different table when my legs couldn't fit underneath the one originally offered
Great food and atmosphere. The service was great and we were treat "special" since it was my friend's birthday. I recommend this restaurant.
My husband and I had an amazing date night.
I have eaten here numerous times for business. I would have given outstanding all around except for the fact that portions of a salmon dish was under-cooked and the waiter dismissing our concern with a canned statement that all salmon is cooked to a medium temperature. While I understand salmon is somewhat difficult, this portion was clearly not cooked to temperature. The waiter was more concerned with getting us to join their "elite" membership club.
Very disappointed. Appetizer (Calamari) was not cooked properly. The breading was soggy. My main dish (scallops) were overcooked and dry. My drink had too much ice, very much watering down the alcohol. My dessert (chocolate cake), highly recommended, was dry and clearly not fresh. Overall bad experience and I would be hard pressed to revisit.
Everything was great, however the food could have come out quicker.
It was such a waste of time and money. The food was sub par. The service was sub-par. If you wanted to swap out any side, it was a minimum $9 up-charge. The kids portions are minuscule, definitely not enough to feed a growing child. For a restaurant that is trying to portray the image of quality seafood, it was a pathetic attempt. Totally overpriced for the terrible experience we got. We will not be going there again, that is for sure.
