I've dined at McCormick & Schmicks in six US cities and they consistently provide exceptionally well prepared seafood meals. Service reflects an effective training progtram in every respect from advice to not being obsequious. I find no evidence of the negative comments provided in several of your reviews. I suspect "fiddling."

My first and only experience here was horrible. My boyfriend and I went for the tax day special that was advertised as entrees for $10.40 a piece. We thought it would be a great deal at a restaurant that he's liked for years.

He's sober now, and the deal was only available in the bar area. So, we waited for a table to open rather than sit right in front of the alchohol display. This seemed to upset management, even though no other patrons were waiting for tables while we were. It wasn't like we were taking up a large portion of space.

Anyway, once we were seated in a booth, it took close to a billion years for one of the several waitstaff to even approach our table. We looked at a menu that seemed to be recently printed and listed tax day entrees and had no mention of a required minimum drink expenditure. While the happy hour menu was also on our table, it was past happy hour time when we actually got around to ordering.

I selected the catfish, but was told that it was being replaced with tuna. Breaded tuna sounded disgusting to me; so, I went for the beer battered cod and chips instead, while my boyfriend ordered the crabcake sandwich. Yes, I know fish and chips is greasy, but this was gross and the fries were sitting in pools of oil getting soggy. It probably didn't help that it took our food 40 minutes to get to us after ordering.

I wouldn't say that the "entrees" were any better than a dive bar's food offerings. I didn't taste the crabcake, but my boyfriend, who has a better palate than I do, admitted to tasting little seafood in the entire thing.

Then we were thoroughly disappointed with our bill which ended up being over $30 for the two tax day specials and the "HH drinks," which for us were $7 diet Cokes.

After tip, spending $35 on two below-average meals with sodas is not my idea of tax relief or even a mildly amusing evening. I will not be back, and I have already rethough my idea of taking my family there when they visit.

Pros: Tiffany-style chandeliers

Cons: slow service, rude waitstaff, greasy food, all @ high price!

I always take my Denver Tech Center clients to this wonderful restaurant. The menu is quite extensive and they serve high quality, fresh seafood and their oyster selection is superb. The bar serves fresh-squeezed cocktails, the wine selection is great and the Happy Hour menu and atmosphere should not be missed. I have hosted events in their elegant and very private banquet rooms. Service is always very professional. I can't think of a better value in the Denver area.

I made reservations for Father's Day for my husband and his 3 teenage stepchildren. Most of the tables were full, but because we had a reservation, we got right in (thanks opentable website!) I had been to the McCormick & Schmicks in KC and had great service and food, but this one wasn't the same. It's a nice place, but somehow has a chain feel that the other high-end steak places I've been to in Denver don't. I ordered the halibut with mango salsa because I've been really loving mango lately. It came nicely plated, but no mangos to be seen. When my husband told the server -- I didn't want to complain because it already took 5-10 minutes for the server to come back to our table between water, drinks, appetizer, etc -- the server was unconcerned and eventually brought me a tiny ramekin of mango salsa. Additionally, water and our other beverage glasses at empty for long periods of time. The worst part was when my stepson ordered a hot fudge sundae and he brought it WITHOUT hot fudge. Yippee! Again, he brought the tiny ramekin of lukewarm fudge. For the steep price of $240 for 6 people, I'll never return to this McCormick & Schmicks. I was embarrassed for having made this choice for such a great father!

Pros: Okay food, nice location in DTC

Cons: Very Poor, Slow Service

.

We had high hopes but were not impressed. My halibut "monterrey style" was baked, and came out watery with barely any crab meat topping, my husband's scallop dinner had a whopping 3 whole scallops... poor fellow left hungry. And although we reserved a week in advance, our "cozy" table we requested got us an aisle table next to a noisy waiter station with constant traffic. We won't be returning.

Pros: Ambience

Cons: Can't think of any

I have been there on several occasions. You can request a booth for a business meeting or a special day. The staff is very knowledgeable on their seafood, especially the oysters. Their seafood is flown in fresh every day and they have a great happy hour. Very enjoyable.

Pros: Great Seafood / Ambience

Cons: There is a wait at peak times.

This place has such good food! Everything there is really fresh and prepared perfectly. The interior is really nice and while being "fancy" it isn't stuffy or uncomfortable. They also didn't mind us bringing our toddler in to eat. They have a really nice patio that is perfect in good weather. It is pricey but worth a splurge occasionally.

PROS: great food, nice interior and patio, friendly staff
CONS: pricey
