McCormick & Schmick's Restaurant Review

: This clubby, pricy spot offers a huge menu but there isn't very much on it that is inspiring. It’s a little disappointing to find a wonderfully broiled halibut sitting next to a meager helping of bland mashed potatoes, four little asparagus spears and a standard lemon wedge with a piece of parsley for color. Personally, we’re bigger fans of the outstanding happy hour when $1.95 appetizer prices include oysters. One of the best features of the restaurant is the velvet-curtained booths where you can dine in private, sipping something from the impressive wine list.
