This McCormick & Schmick's franchise on Chestnut and N. Wabash is excellent quality. Wait service was very welcoming and professional; decor is quiet, elegant, and nice to sit by the windows and people-watch. The food was very good for the most part. We started off with appetizers of the lump crab tower (mostly crab lump meat garnished with a fresh mango and corn salsa) which was succulent and sweet; tuna "Coast-to-Coast" (comprising of two preparations of tuna, one a tartare, the other delectable chunks of seared tuna with a slice of jalapeno) which was outstanding; and Oysters Rockefeller (too much Hollandaise sauce which covered up the brininess of the oysters), which was a bit of a miss. I followed this with a Lake Superior whitefish, encrusted with pretzel crumbs and it was delicately-flavored, with the pretzel coating (very like a panko) providing a nice crunchy counter to the soft mild-flavored flesh. Overall, a very nice choice and meal.

I've been to this restaurant on a business dinner and I liked it. The people who served are amazing and the food was excellent, which I had to invite my friend on the next day for lunch and we enjoyed a lot.

We have had dinner at other McCormick & Schmick's but this was the first time we had lunch here and were totally happy with the choices offered and pricing of lunches. Service was good and food was excellent! The kitchen was slow preparing our lunches but all in all good lunch.

We had a dinner in the upper part with a big group. The first frustration was the glasses! They said they are out of wine glasses and served red wine in regular water glasses to all of us. There was no salt and pepper on the table. We had to wait for them to bring. The coffee and tea were almost cold! Chesecake was terrible. I do not advise the restourant to anybody.

Loved the food here, including the clam chowder and crab-stuffed shrimp. Very nice atmosphere too. Will definitely come back!
