I have dined at several McCormick & Schmick's in California, Washington DC and Maryland but was disappointed by this location. The waiter forgot our appetizer and only resubmitted it moments before our entrees arrived. My crab legs were underweight, not freshly prepared and yielded pitiful amounts of meat. Factoring their reputation and high prices, I expected more consistency from McCormick & Schmick's.
Clubby corporate restaurant draws seafood lovers with fresh daily catches and posh atmosphere.. In Short Upscale and sophisticated, this chain features art deco-inspired trappings such as dark wood, shiny brass and beveled glass. Servers clad in black and white weave through cocktailing couples and businessmen at the bar. The classic American, seasonally inspired seafood menu changes daily; specialties include starters of Dungeness crab cakes and oysters on the half shell, plus entrees like cedar plank-roasted salmon, sauteed lobster with scallops and rock shrimp, and seared yellowfin tuna with wasabi, soy and ginger.
i used to go to the Pilsner Room for happy hour. well that changed when they removed all my favorite items from the menu like calamari, bruschetta, pizza, etc. beer selection is good although when they have music in there it is WAY too loud, even if you sit outside in the patio.
Cold Food, Poor Service.
Four of us ordering steak, seared tuna, other fairly well priced dishes--all served lukewarm to cold. Asked to reheat the filet mignon, the meat was either placed under the heat lamp for a bit, or popped in the microwave, dumped back onto the garnishes and returned to the table. Very unprofessional. Can't recommend this place; food cold, wait staff unresponsive. Good ambiance, good beer, cute schoolgirl outfits a plus. Not nearly worth the money.
Had a Lobster tail for dinner, and it was delicious;
however, the waitress never checked upon us after the plates were served. I didn't see out waitress until she got back with the check. Considering the amount of money spent that night, I though at least we deserved to be asked if everything was okay with the food and all..
The ambience is mostly filled with business man and women.
