We arrived at a quiet time. I always love this chain. Ask for the vegetarian menu! (we nearly didn't realize they had one.) The carnivores among us tried the bone marrow and it was delicious.

Our meal at McCormick and Schmick's was wonderful. Service was outstanding and the food was to die for. Our steak was perfectly cooked, and the wine service was right on the money. This restaurant really lives up to its reputation.
