Went for breakfast twice, and for happy hour drinks once. Food was good, but overpriced. Service was friendly, but very slow. For $4.80, a "bottomless" cup of coffee should be refilled without having to flag someone down.

A host and Manager welcomed us; however, we sat and waited an eternity without a server ever showing up at our table. Unfortunately this was the second time in less than a week we experinced this at the same location. We are staying at the Omni and are members of Laundry's Club, reason for trying this restaurant. Not making another... More

My son planned a last minute birthday meal for me at Mccormick and Schmick’s using open table. When we arrived we were greeted and taken to a table in the back in a corner. No one came to say it would be a few minutes, your waiter is busy. We waited about 10 minutes then got up to leave but... More

Had the breakfast at the hotel. Service was ok but the pancakes were large size but poor taste. Not worth of money. Can get much better outside of the hotel for less money.

Went to dinner with business friends and it was terrific. Benjamin was our waiter and excellent. Suggested Sea Bass for my friend and I had the seared scallops with risotto. Both were very good and the price reasonable and good overall value. Try it and you'll be happy👍👍

McCormick and Schmicks in the Omni Hotel not only has a busy location in the Gaslamp, but has a dining room with a bar at one end and high ceilings (2 stories) that captures great light during the day. Thus, your fresh catch can also catch the resounding noises of the happy hour crowd. My remedy is to go after... More

Yum. My favorite. And the cocktails during Happy Hour are a good value. I enjoyed breakfasts and dinners here this trip and all were very good. Staff was also exemplary.

Normally, I love McCormick and Schmick's lobster bisque. It is my favorite. However, the night we were there, it tasted so gross. The liquid part was great (like normal) but the actual pieces of lobster-yuck!! It tasted like it had been freezer-burned. I have never had lobster taste like that before. I only order lobster dishes from nice restaurants, so... More

For a chain restaurant, this place has decently fresh fish. This location in the Omni Hotel is very convenient for a quiet drink to get away from the chaos of the Gaslamp Quarter.
