"We hadn't been back to Harborside for some time but we were very impressed with the remodel and the view is as great as ever. It's a much warmer and richer place to dine now. We will definitely be back."

"There was one waiter for the entire lunch crowded. About 10 tables total but it was spread out all over the top floor. Two management wandered around the whole time we are there not helping just chatting. We had to beg for refills and when our food came out it was barely warm and under done. I don't think I will be returning to this restaurant again."

"We spent three nights in Seattle and at McCormick's for dinner. I had shrimp scampi with pasta and my wife had fresh organic salmon, and the meal was outstanding. The wine list was good and the wine we had was great with our meal. Our waiter was outstanding and pointed out landmarks you could see from the dining room. Will definitely go back when we are in Seattle."

"The food has improved. Not too impressed with their parent company . Landrys. I am a Landrys club member and their customer service is poor. I rarely receive the dining points I earn and am tired of having to deal with it. The dining club service was much better when McCormick was independently owned."

"Food was not warm at all. Server although did a good job but, when clearing full plates of food did not ask why we didn't eat our food. When Manager asked how it was, we told him that food was cold. He said he would inform the Chef but, did not offer us to reheat. Disappointing."

"I never leave reviews, but I'm making an exception. I made a reservation at this restaurant hoping for a pleasant Christmas dinner with my visiting family in from Chicago. Unfortunately, I forgot to read the reviews in advance, but my hairdresser warned me 3 days before Christmas when I told her where we were going and it was too late to change my reservation. Nope, she was right. This poor staff was set up for failure from the beginning. Completely under-staffed, we waited 40 minutes after our reservation time to get sat. What do you do while you wait? Go to the bar, of course. Nope, they were also completely under-staffed as well, and only had 2 bartenders, one of whom was either new, inexperienced, or just really bad. I am a former bartender, and he was absolutely terrible, making one drink at a time, and not taking any orders from people at the bar because he was so backed up. It took 45 minutes to get a drink. 45 minutes and that's only because other people got mad and left. The rest of the family was sat as we were paying for everyone's drinks. We then waited 10 minutes for a server, and another 10 for any water or bread. We ordered everything right away because we were starving and weren't sure when we'd see anyone again. I ordered another drink right away and it took 30 minutes to come. Our server was very apologetic, and it wasn't his fault at all. He kept a great attitude and tried very hard. As someone who worked in the bar and restaurant industry for many years, shame on this restaurant for being open on Christmas and then setting up their staff and customers for a very poor experience. Just be closed instead of putting your staff through that. I'm sure their Christmas was not a good one, and I know my family's Christmas dinner was ruined. Too bad, the restaurant and view is amazing. I won't ever be back."

"The food was not so great. The oysters on a half shell was not schucked properly, there were lots of tiny shell debris. The batter for the kids popcorn shrimp and chicken were too salty, my kids couldn't eat it. The prawn trio dinner was over cooked and rubbery. The steak was very bland with no flavor at all. It was very disappointing."

"I have always loved to dine here but this night was so disappointing. It was supposed to be a special meal with my son and his daughter. The waiter, John had to be inexperienced. I asked numerous times for coffee refill never to receive it. Granddaughter's hamburger was inedible. Charred! Food was barely warm.Service was slow and finally I had to ask him to find someone else to bring our bill. I hope someone listens to this review so improvements can be made. I wondered why I could make a reservation so easily at 6 pm on a usually busy evening. Now I know why. It was way too expensive not to say something about it. Thanks for printing this. C. S."

"I went to McCormick's for since I was treated by a Guyfriend. I ordered the stuffed Shrimp with crab. You get only 5 shrimps and not much food. The crab stuffing was not that great and tasted fishy. It's the same stuffing that I got last time I order the Stuffed Sole. The while sauce was creamy though and the green beans were fresh. We were sat near noisy kitchen. There is no wall anymore separating the kitchen and dining area after they remodeled. The bar on the bottom is quieter, so go there if you want a quiet conversation or ask to sit towards the Southside of the restaurant. During the summer, the deck is open downstairs, so it's also the time to go if you like sitting outside."
