Wednesday evening as I was returning to the hotel, I stumbled upon this restaurant. I was preparing to have dinner at another place, but I decided to give this a try. It was a very good experience. The server (Paige) was first class and pleasant. The soup that I ordered was not available at that moment, she substituted for another... More

We had some great food, oysters, crab, coconut shrimp, lobster bites and steaks were chosen by our party of 5 so we could sample their best options. Although the food was very good and tasty our waiter was under pressure with 4 other tables to serve in our section, we needed to ask several times for wine, mustards, lemon and... More

Happy Hour is not to be missed. Though we went twice and each time had the chopped salad off the main menu at the bar and shared it along with one of their happy hour iotems. Drinks chices are very affordable.

After having dined at this restaurant many times, this last visit was extremely disappointing. The service was very slow and our meals were brought to the table after more than one hour and only after someone from the table went to the host stand to see what was wrong. And then the food was not the best. When you combine... More

2nd time we found ourselves in the McCormick & Schmick's in the Washington DC area on a weekend. Not wanting particularly fancy or fatty food, we went to a place we knew would have reliable quality. They once again did not disappoint. The fish was fresh and interesting. The salad was crisp and clever. The service was nice, the atmosphere... More

When you travel for business as much as I do finding great customer service gets tougher everyday. You develop a higher standard than the average customer. Having said that the staff at the DC MaCormick & Smick's have what I call the "Golden Touch" my special thanks to the bar staff Jeneva and Lindsey. On a busy night full of... More

I usually book using Open Table but knowing how crazy the traffic can be in DC I choose to take a chance on getting a table. The hostess was very accommodating and friendly with no reservations and the restaurant was pretty busy. It took a little longer then expected for someone to come over to greet us after we were...

We came in about 8:00pm to order dinner. We had fish and chips and a deep fried shrimp dinner...all were served promptly and was very good. Staff was nice and accommodating.

I've been coming here infrequently for years. Happy hour bar service the past couple of years has been subpar. A recent trip was simply the worst - food didn't come, drinks didn't come, etc. My party paid for what we'd received and moved on to a bar that wasn't understaffed.

Thank ews25
