McCormick & Schmick's Seafood - National Harbor
Friday and Saturday: 11:00am - 11:00pm
Room decor and food very good, but ambient noise was high making it difficult to hear across the table.
I went to celebrate my birthday. When I got there I waited 3 minutes until someone acknowledged me. They confirmed my reservation; however my party was supposed to be seated near the window viewing the water but another party was placed there. I was kind of disappointed with it being my first time dining there. I even called to confirm my reservation the day off and the night before. Furthermore, the water did not offer to refill my drink, and towards the end for my birthday they were supposed to bring out the chocolate lava cake but he also brought out something else instead. Pretty much there was a major miscommunication is between staff and the reservation team. Overall because my friends were with me I had an awesome time despite their miscommunication
Not one of my better dining experiences from the before dinner drink to the end of the meal. The servers did the best they could
Overpriced and just ok. Restaurant was too warm. Either AC wasn’t working or they didn’t have it on. No recognition of our special celebration, even though it was mentioned on our reservation.
The food proportions weren't worth the cost $$ of the meal. My husband was very disappointed.
Our server was Amazing!!!!
I requested a special birthday wish for my wife and nothing happened, no dessert nothing. I am assuming the host did not check us in because I got an email from OpenTable that said I didn’t make my reservation. The food was nothing extraordinary, a steak and asparagus that was cooked well. My wife had no idea I tried to plan her special birthday dinner and the restaurant dropped the ball.
Great food, service, and experience.
Setting reservation was easy. Nice setting and service was pretty good. Drinks were very good. Should have stopped while we were ahead. Two of us had NY strip steaks that were not great. Sides OK. Salads a little wilted. Meal overall was very disappointing.
We went for our Anniversary and it was walking distance from our resort. The restaurant is right on the harbor, which made for a beautiful view. Outdoor seating available but it was stormy so we dined inside. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. The meal was excellent! We would definitely go back for another special occasion. It was on the higher end for spending but the quality was in line with cost.
Service was exceedingly slow, and once the food arrived it was tepid. Also, the bottom of a glass of ice water broke as an attempt was made to take the first sip. The glass itself was defective. The wait staff was slow to understand the magnitude of the spill-- lap, purse and my birthday gift were all soaked.
The hostess and our 2nd waiter was great. The food was less than stellar. I ordered a salad with shrimp. The shrimp tasted like they had been sitting for awhile. My mother ordered salmon and shrimp with roasted veggies. Her entire meal tasted and appeared as if it had been sitting for awhile as well. The veggies were hard and not edible. The price point was high and the food was a disappointment.
I had blackened sea bass which was exceptionally salty. I also asked for asparagus but received a medley of roasted vegetables. They tasted good, however. The Arnold Palmer and crème brulee were excellent.
Everything was good except it was a birthday dinner and I was told that we would have personalized menus but we didn't. I really wanted this extra feature because my daughter was visiting me from Bermuda and I wanted her to feel extra special on the night before she returned home. I was disappointed and glad that she knew nothing about it.
Food was not good. I had hair in my soup. Will not be returning anytime soon.my server was good.
Very friendly and helpful waitress. Good food and prompt service.
We took our out-of-town guests there to show off the National Harbor. The food is excellent and the view is beautiful.
Waiter did not acknowledge occasion until we noted later. Pretty uneventful.
When biz picked up he forgot items requested and was not clear on options he had to go ask and he tried to sneak in salads not incl with our options. Food was good but not excellent. Will try anothet option next special occasion.
Our waiter Bruce was very nice and our food came out fast. We ordered the calamari , Caesar salad, salmon, filet mignon (6 Oz) and fish and chips.
Everything was good as always.
My first time experience was on labor day weekend, went there for lunch and the next day for dinner! Food was outstanding both times! Would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Next time I'll visit the National Harbor I'll definitely stop by
My experience was outstanding. I was their to celebrate my Mother's 60th birthday. I notice because I made a reservation our menus was address with Happy 60th Birthday, supremely happy my celebration was here. Our food was delicious. I ordered the Ultimate Grill platter (I think that was the name)...Stuffed shrimps, grilled shrimps, salmon, crab cake, mashed potatoes & string beans, all prepared with great flavor. A guest ordered the stuff salmon that includes lump crab meat & shrimps, it was awesome. Our waitress was absolutely the best. We has a large party & She continuously checked on us & made sure all needs was meet. The service was so good gratuity was included yet we tipped Her again. I would recommend this location for all your occasions or just a quick bite to eat.
We have dined at this chain before but our visit Saturday night was more than disappointing. There were 6 at our table for my daughter’s 18th birthday. We waited long for everything and several salads were forgotten and brought 1 minute before our entrees. Our drinks were constantly empty along with the bread basket that didn’t even come with 1 piece of bread per person. We were not a priority nor was our food or experience. The server was sub par and we completely overpaid for what we received. Our bill was close to $500 and my filet was so tough I didn’t bother finishing it. So very disappointed!!!
For the cost, the portions were a little small, but tasty. Service was absolutely horrendous. Our waitress was inattentive and we could never find her. We had to keep asking other servers and the hostess for assistance. Hostess had a terrible demeanor when we asked for the check and to go box, like it was a huge inconvenience.
Excellent food and the best service! Our server was very nice and helpful.
Everything was great, from the food, to the drinks, and the service.
Derek was our server and he was great. Great variety on the menu and everything was delicious. The only drawback was the noise level. We stopped in for an early dinner and even though the restaurant was only about 2/3 full the noise level made conversation difficult at times.
Service was good, drinks were great, the calamari was to die for. The fish I ordered, I believe the swordfish, was extremely dry- which was the only downside considering how expensive it was.
Pro tip- if you let them know about a special occasion- they’ll print personalized menus for you!
Our waitress was very professional and knowledgeable about food menu and cocktails and wine offerings.
Place was great. Only grievance is that they don’t take Open Table rewards earned by making Open Table reservations to eat there. Using those rewards is very difficult, but that seems to be an Open Table tactic to avoid honoring awards.
It took the server 20 minutes to bring us water. Then it took a while for everything else. I think if we had a different server it would have been better..
Mid afternoon meal. Great menu. Easy relaxed atmosphere. Great view of Potomac River. Delicious crab cake and Burramudi fish cooked to perfection. Not dry, but moist. Service exceptional.
I love this restaurant. Quick plan with 2 hours for an extended birthday dinner for my wife. Was able to make a quick reservations, not far from home at all, and right on the water at the National Harbor. SHe loves the seafood and man I love the steaks!!!Trust me you will enjoy.
My wife and I met friends at the M&S at National Harbor. The luncheon choices were quite appealing. We all enjoyed our meals and were not rushed as we caught up on news from the past year.
Very happy with everything. Got our table....very romantic.
My friends and I had a wonderful time and look forward to future visits. We sat on the patio and it was great. The service was excellent and our server was very knowledgeable about the menu. I had wonderful scallops, as did one of my friends. My other friend had salmon. It was a beautiful day.
Great atmosphere. Great service. Must ask for Bruce.
Twin Lobster tails were excellent. Server Hannah took care of us. Drinks , dessert on point.
We arrived early (6:30pm) and were told our table would be ready closer to our reservation time which was 7pm. We said we would wait in the bar and they said they would come find us. At 7:10pm, we checked back in the with the hostess/host stand and were told they could seat us in a few minutes but they seemed surprised. I mentioned this was a special occasion in the reservation- it was our 30th Anniversary, yet we were seated near the kitchen door. Our service in the bar was great. Our server, Morgan was great. The food was great. We even signed up for the Landry 's Select Rewards club. And then they reported us as a No-Show to Open Table! So our dining experience was great but the host/hostess check in reservations needs some work.
Was there celebrating our anniversary, and when booked the restaurant asked what the occasion was and they didn't even acknowledge it. Also the staff wasn't very friendly. When booked reservation it said the restaurant was on the waterfront and we asked to be sat were the water was and we were sat on the opposite side of the restaurant by the kitchen. Our server went over everything so quickly and we felt rushed with every part of the meal. We wouldn't recommend this restaurant. We visited other restaurants during our stay and wished we would have had dinner there for our anniversary. Was very disappointing, and the value wasn't worth it for the amount of food we ate.
Always a fantastic experience at this restaurant. The staff excels at the level of attentiveness that they give each customer. The food is always excellent.
