It was nice, didn’t think the special for the night was worth the value but that’s my fault. The oysters were good not great. Overall I’d still dine with them I enjoyed my time im just extremely picky.

Slow service. Tough steak. Food barely warm. Too pricey for what we received. A place like Flemings is a better experience and value, at this price point.

Service was excellent. The staff work hard to keep everything clean, including the chairs. The staff wear masks. The price value was excellent. We had the Sunday $25 special crab-stuffed flounder, caesar salad, and chocolate silk pie. My husband had beautiful asparagus with his entree. I added pepper to my entree because it was a bit bland for my taste. The salad was cold and crisp. We enjoyed most of a Chateau St. Michele Chardonnay. The dessert was divine. We would come more often but it's at least an hour drive from our house.

It was a great date night with my wife. Our server Brian (Bryan?) was very helpful and gave us time to decide and offered good suggestions. My wife was in love with the sea bass he recommended. The Meiomi pinor noir really hit the spot as well. We plan to keep coming back.

McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Rest. hit another “home run” on our most recent visit. We were able to dine "al fresco" - enjoying dining on the small section of sidewalk where they were ingeniously able to put a few tables. THANKS Jim! We were very pleased with the service and the food. We had a variety - appetizer, seafood, salads, dessert, etc. All excellent. We highly recommend this restaurant for a “won’t let you down” place to take family & friends. Kudos and thanks to all the staff at McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurant in Reston. Very much appreciated all that you did to make our ~1 hour one-way trip well worth it!

The service was excellent. Wine suggestion by the Waiter was very good and paired perfectly with our entrees. I did find my dish to be rather salty. My Husband ordered the scallops and while he said they were tasty the dish didn't feel complete. It need something more than a bed of lettuce. Overall experience was OK.

5:30 Fri Res. Plenty of Open Tables.
It was Advertised as Lobster Roll Day.
I ordered one and was disappointed at it came out on a 'Hamburger Bun', only buttered w/ no Sauce and with only a few French Fries.... I was told after it arrived that they ran out of 'Rolls'
Not much of a meal at all.

Food was good but not superb. Oysters shucked had some green goo and bits of shells. Our waitress who was hurried the whole time also forgot our calamari. Was not keeping up with our waters or iced teas. She also rushed us through our meals. Asking about dessert when our main has only arrived 2 mins after. Our calamari arrived at the end of main entrees. She admitted to not putting order in. Had 2 bites left on apple pie dessert and she offered to take the plate already while my spoon was in hand. Also kept on taking her mask off especially while SHE spoke. My concern of course with that is her droplets landing on our faces as she stood above us while we are looking up at her like baby birds. She has a thick accent but we never had her repeat herself or talk louder so the mask removing while she spoke was a personal issue for her. We understood her the whole time. Drinks from the bar were delicious. I had 2 raspberry mules. Had no bits of raspberries in here though. This was an expectation since I frequent the National Harbor location and have ordered their fruity mule drinks before. My daughter had the strawberry mojito and she loved it. My husband loved the lobster bisque. I enjoyed the fish special. My daughter also had the salmon special.

I was very disappointed in this visit to McCormick and Schmick's. We went their in January (BC - Before COVID) for our 10th anniversary and it was AWESOME! This time was fair. The steak was good but the lobster was overcooked. They were kind to make another one, which was cooked perfectly but a little discolored (I didn't get sick!) and the potatoes were just undercooked cut red and white potatoes with herbs (something you could make at home yourself). The people (wait staff and manager) make the place - and the steaks. But we don't plan on spending that kind of money for a steak any time soon. Hope your experience is better!

The restaurant is beautiful and the food and service were amazing. The prices weren’t bad, and they have a wonder 3 course meal for $25. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Must finish with their apple pie.

It was SO good to be back among our friends at M&S! Greeted by the manager and staff as "family", the service was wonderful and Kyle was outstanding in his service!!!The 3 course dinner was just beautifully prepared and presented. As usual, the cuisine tasted exquisite. M&S is where we go to celebrate our family's special events and memories. The staff is very caring and attentive. It was so wonderful to be back after such a long time due to the pandemic. It was totally safe being there and the staff was extremely careful and aware to keep cleanliness and social distancing as paramount priorities while remaining very inclusive with us. An excellent choice for a meal at any time of day!

Met a friend for Restaurant Week lunch. She had the Salmon and I had the coconut shrimp, and, of course, we both had the Creme brûlée. Hers was good, as always, but I thought my shrimp were a little over-fried. Not quite as good as I expected. Both of our Creme Brûlée’s were a little overdone. We ate everything so not that bad, just not up to the great meal we had had there two weeks prior. We will be back as we love this place and it is a great spot for us to meet as we are coming from VA and MD, and not having to pay to park in the garages on the weekends is a definite plus.

We go here several times a year (even did take out a couple of months ago when there was no indoor dining) and is always a nice experience. Food is always very good and the are very accommodating to my wife’s GF requirements. This time was for Restaurant Week which was a starter, entree and dessert for 35pp, not including beverages. We both had the Filet Mignon, which was delicious. My wife had the crab soup, while I had the coconut shrimp for our starters. For dessert she had the creme brûlée whi how she said was one of the best she’d had, while I had the cheesecake, also very good. Our server Kyle was very attentive and the manager visited several times. Already looking forward to our next visit.

Staff was great. Food was horrible. Had Rockfish. No flavor. My friend had soup for first course, when our Rockfish was served, it seemed like they used the same soup over the fish.
The dessert was good, but the main course was awful. This was also during restaurant week. It seemed like they served half the size of fish. Don't waste your time, to many other good places in reston town center.

The service was very poor. Was surprised as I have held M&S in high regard. Waiters don’t work together. Our was disorganized and no one jumped in to help him out. Food was ok, but along with service not a good value for the high prices.

Been going to M&M for many years Very disappointed. Utensils to crack crab legs were terribly rusted, good thing we didn't use them. Dessert was literally frozen. Table was on sidewalk right next to entrance. Very, very disappointed.
