With that brand name I had expected more. Food was ok to good, but there is no atmosphere in this restaurant. There are plenty of better options nearby.

This review is based only on the Happy Hour menu. I've had good meals in the restaurant, but, in the bar for Happy Hour, you cannot go wrong if you have the tuna, the calamari, and, best of all - the cheeseburger. The latter, costing...More

Great happy hour between 5pm and 7pm, with $1.00 raw oysters on Wednesday and Saturday. After happy hour, we had a bunch of appetizers. The shrimp kisses, Maryland crab chowder and oysters Rockefeller were excellent. Would definitely go back.

The food and service are excellent BUT since Reston Town Center has instituted pay parking, we refuse to go there. The argument that pay parking is for some hours and not others is missing the point because diners do not want to have to worry...More

Dined here on the 13th with two other people. Those two had steak and I had the swordfish. All three of us were pleased. I had my fish simply grilled with a burblanc sauce on the side. Very tasty. All in all a great time

I have been a long time diner at McCormick and Schmick's, which makes this even harder. My last two meals-one in Tysons, one at Reston Town Center both left something to be desired--service. The service on both occasions was poor at best. My most recent...More

It was simply the worst food and service. A massively important customer dinner. SLOW doesn't begin to describe the glacial pace...45 min to get bread. Drinks were just plain wrong...the waitress actually asked if someone wanted a "sweet martini" - huh? The apps were average...More
