The crab cake dinner was very good! The restaurant is right across from a parking garage, which was free on the weekend!

Everything was just so-so. The service was fine but a lot of the food was bland and not hot. Could be a rough reopening but I have never been before and have no comparison. Would not go back.

The food was unacceptable...poorly prepared
Not the like the Old McCormick & Schmidt
Part unedible....shrimp terrible
Very poor quality
We should be paid for a new meal, it was that bad!
Their excuse that they have an unlimited menu
is poor

I almost never write negative reviews. The ribeye steaks were chewy, the cooking instructions for one of the ribeye steaks and the filet mignon were mixed, the potatoes were not cooked well, and the plates were greasy.
I don’t know what happened. We like this chain and came to celebrate 25 years anniversary wedding for dear friends.
Hope things get better

We were happy to get out of the house during COVID-19 restrictions opening up and during the week. We were the only ones sitting on our side of the front door outside and had a wonderful time catching up with great food and drinks and they even brought out a birthday cheesecake with 2 lit candles since it was my birthday and another person's birthday was coming up and it was slightly windy that day. Service was perfect!

This was our first in-dining experience since Covid. The staff was vigilant and we appreciated the distance between us and other guests. I felt comfortable, respected and like our sense of safety mattered. The food was excellent. I would definitely eat at McCormick & Schmick’s again!

Dinner with my Mom and her partner Vaughn. We had some drinks to start - I recommend the raspberry mule. All of our meals (steak meal, Caesar salad with a crab cake, and my stuffed salmon) were magnificent. We also split a slice of chocolate silk pie, which was delicious and rich and perfect to split. Service was fantastic, and ambiance was just right for a lively discussion about the world we’re living in right now - and we dined outside, watching protesters pass that are fighting for racial equality. 10/10 meal - we will be back.

Given the pandemic, there was only outdoor seating which was pleasant though a nearby car alarm did detract from the ambience (no fault of the restaurant).
The service was attentive, the food was as usual very good though my salmon requested medium rare was well.
We are so grateful that the restaurant stayed open for take out and now outdoor dining given the pandemic.
This is a long standing favorite of ours.

Service is always professional and the fish is always fresh. Where M&S falls short is there price point for the dish. You get a fresh piece of fish but a plain roasted potato (think breakfast home fries) and a chopped mixed vegetable for about $30. The chef could do so much more with the sides to elevate the dish to the price you pay.

All four of us enjoyed our meals. The food was well prepared, portions were just right and dietary needs were accommodated. We were seated in a booth with walls which made conversation among the four of us very easy to hear.

The food and the experience were excellent. For three of us, our three choices were: scallops, ahi tuna, and swordfish. Each one was outstanding. I used to go to McCormick & Schmick often. Then it seemed to go downhill. I had not been to McCormick & Schmick for several years. My belief was that there was only one truly excellent seafood restaurant in Reston. Now I know there are two, and one of them is McCormick and Schmick.

My only recommendation is for them to change their wood tables. They were stained from wet classes with many circle all over.
I would also suggest that Open Table communicates the customer's requests with the restaurant sooner. They did not receive my comment and request for a table near the window, but they accommodated me anyways. Thanks.

My steak was excellent. Only thing that was less than outstanding was the roasted root veggies. They could have been cooked a bit more. The carrots were very hard.

Cold seafood appetizer was good but very small pieces of crab

Margarita was not good - martini was fine

Blackened trout was dry and not well seasoned - potatoes were excellent

Beef medallions were ordered medium, but were served medium rare - very little sauce for the portion - spinach was under seasoned

Coffee was very good as was Smith island cake

We had a very pleasant server but he is clearly still training and left us for extended periods of time, especially at the end of our meal

Great food... great service. The manage came by a couple times.... once to tell us about the oysters we just ordered and to check on our meal? Our waiter, Christopher, was amazing! We couldn't have had a bad experience even if we tried! I have been converted to a McCormick regular because of the visit 👍
