McCormick & Schmick's Restaurant Review
Since teaming up in the early 1970s, Bill McCormick and Doug Schmick have established
more than 50 restaurants and catering operations throughout the country, an extraordinary
feat in a business with the highest attrition rate of any in the United States.
The two men, very different yet surprisingly compatible, have established themselves
as entrepreneurs with one collective vision, to run the nation's premier family
of seafood restaurants.
The history of McCormick & Schmick's
Seafood Restaurants began when Bill McCormick purchased Jake's Famous Crawfish Restaurant
located in Portland,
Oregon, and brought the more than 100-year-old landmark back
When asked the secret of how he revitalized a restaurant on the brink of closing,
McCormick says, "I like nothing better than being a good host." In addition to his
spirited personality, McCormick has an ability to bring out the best in other's
managerial skills and strengths, a combination essential in a successful business.
Long Island, Brazilian Caipirinha
We had the pleasure of having a dinner last week at the McCormick & Schmick's
Seafood Restaurant in Beverly Hills. The restaurant is located in a tourist area,
where you can see stars and dine at al fresco, or inside the restaurant.
It has a great ambience, and the service and food were truly superb.
We started with a selection of appetizers and entrees that we certainly enjoyed,
and recommend to all of our readers. If you are a seafood lover, McCormick &
Schmick's Seafood Restaurant in Beverly Hills is a place to not be missed.
As far as appetizers, they have a great selection, and we were temped by the Salmon
Carpaccio, served with Lemon Vinaigrette, Capers and Parmesan cheese, I
dish, very light, very tasty, and delicious.
Pancetta Wrapped Prawns
We also tasted the Pancetta Wrapped Prawns, grilled and served with Hoisen Barbeque
Glaze, a great item, that was a fabulous choice.
Dungeness Crab Cake
Our friends had the Dungeness Crab Cake, with a cucumber, tomato and
they loved this one, full of real crab meat and delish!
Lobster Cobb Salad
As far as salad, we wanted to go fancy, so we ordered the Lobster Cobb Salad, which
I simply loved, served with Avocado, Smoked Bacon, Green Beans,
with Dijon Sauce, I would honestly have this salad,
every single day, it was to
Pacific Snapper and Tempura Shrimp
As far as entrees, among so many great choices, I choose the Pacific Snapper and
Tempura Shrimp, seared and served with Stir-Fried Rice and Vegetables, on a sweet
ginger beurre blanc sauce. Simply the best fish, and the tempura was certainly the
best, I wish they had a dish with just the tempura shrimp as an appetizer; it was
of the best tempura’s I have ever tasted.
Top Sirloin and Half Maine Lobster
My guest choose the amazing Top Sirloin and Half Maine Lobster, a winner, no doubts
about it, served with Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus Bundle, the meat was super
tender, and cooked to perfection, and the lobster was great, and the
size was good
Kailua, Hawaii, Ahi Tuna
Our friends choice was also great, one of them had the Pacific Swordfish, grilled
and served with forked potatoes, grilled zucchini and pineapple salsa, they loved
this one, and the other choice they had was the Kailua, Hawaii, Ahi Tuna; sashimi
grade yellow fin Tuna Seared over Sautéed Spinach and topped with Foie Gras and
Watermelon Relish, another excellent choice.
Dessert Choices Brought to Your Table
We had a birthday guest in our table, so our waiter kindly brought a surprise
cake, which was complimentary, a nice treat for our table!
Complimentary Chocolate Cake
We certainly enjoyed McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant in Beverly
a great restaurant, with excellent location, food and service.
We hope you can also go there, and enjoy the best seafood in town.
