There are too many places in Reston Town Center to waste your rare night out for happy hour at McCormick & Schmick's. Our server was polite enough but didn't seem to understand that we wanted some time to review the Happy Hour menu. When our...More

The service was fine here but the food wasn't as expected. Salads were fine as was the sourdough bread. Entrees: The Almond Crusted Trout was ok but the lemon butter sauce was not lemony and there wasn't enough of it to soak the fish. The...More

I have never been disappointed at any of the McCormick & Schmick's locations. Always check out their daily specials; you;ll be glad you did. They have always accommodated special orders when we had dietary restrictions and still made the meal appetizing. If you eat out...More
