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!

Went there last night. Had the beef medallions and lobster. It wasn't bad. One of the potatoes was burned. No vegetables with the plate but it was on special at Avery good price. Our waiter was awesome. My wife had lobster bisque and coconut shrimp. That was pretty good.

Find was food here, particularly the lobster bisque. I had fish for mains, and it tastes very decent. Service was a bit slow however.

My wife and I got last minute tickets to the San Jose Performing Arts Center. We had an hour to find a quick bite to eat before the show and found two available seats at the bar at McCormick & Schmick's. Where do I start? Bad service, bad food. Could not get waited on at the bar while two bar... More

We have been to this restaurant in the past and it was a little over average. On this dining experience on a Friday night we found the restaurant not busy at all. We were seated and our waiter showed up promptly. He did not offer any input for dinner and was very brisk and curt. Our diners were only average... More

We were looking forward to a night out at a special place. What happened is this....we were seated in the bar at a "VIP table" that was in the corner and we bumped chairs with the next table the entire time due to the tight space. The table had no settings and was dirty. Not a great start. Although, The... More
