Very nice atmosphere and great service but food was unimpressive. Sashimi was gigantic chunks that were still frozen. Shrimp dish for kids was super salty. Octopus combo with BBQ sauce was strange.

Seems like a fun place for happy hour but proper birthday dining it was not.

Again service and decor I could give up to 5 stars but would need a palate makeover.

Have been there a few times in the past - went there with two friends recently to celebrate birthdays for two of us. We had an awesome waiter that was very knowledgeable in helping us decided what to order. The special he suggested was delicious and it was a lovely way to spend the afternoon.

Great food, wonderful service and a nice relaxed vibe. Passion Fish was fantastic. Our waiter " Matt " was very conversant with the menu and recommended several dishes which were all superb. We particularly enjoyed the Toro Tuna served sashimi style. I was also pleasantly surprised by the comprehensive nature of the resident wine list which reflects perfect pairing with the high quality and super fresh seafood.

I have been a long term Passion Fish customer. This visit was horrid, primarily due to a lone server at the bar. I made the mistake of dining on a high top in the bar area. Big mistake. Ordered my favorite meal of flounder. Food was delivered, and that was the last semblance of any customer service or interface. Never got a revisit for another drink with the meal or for the tab even. After an extended wait, I had to stand in Q at the bar to pay to get out of there. I will never order food in the bar area due to the woefully poor service.

The place was pretty empty when we arrived. It was early. I found that were not enough choices that did not have peppers in it. Even my beloved crab cakes had peppers, which does not make it a Chesapeake crab cake. Maryland/Chesapeake crab cakes do not have peppers of any kind in them. I ended up with the lobster tails which were drowning in butter or oil. I don’t like lobster but this was pretty much my only choice and would not order again. Actually I probably would not return.

We were in the Reston area and visiting our “old haunts” and wanted some seafood so we tried passion fish. Turns out that it was the best seafood we had all week including spending most of the week on the eastern shore. Definitely will go here whenever we are in the area.

Passion Fish was an awesome choice for our family ‘s celebration dinner. We were 5?adults an 2 children. Norah was our server who responded to our questions and took very good care of us. We will return for our next family milestone event and celebration.

We met with friends for a nice night out and certainly were not disappointed. Among us, we had swordfish, mussels, blackened fish and crab cakes. All were quite good. My swordfish was properly cooked and nicely presented. My only complaint is that many of the entrees come without either a starch or a vegetable, causing you to have to order those as sides. The side portions seem too large for a normal serving but somehow not large enough to share. For the price, the restaurant ought to provide basic starch and veggies with their meals and then work with the customers to go from there. Lots of other restaurants do this, so it should not be beyond this one, which is an otherwise excellent restaurant.

Elected outdoor dining on a perfect early evening. Same excellent cuisine with less interior chatter and clatter. This restaurant lends itself to special self-indulgent occasions, when price is no object.

We eat at Passion Fish every other month or so. This time it was for my mother’s 96th birthday. My sister and her family come into town for the occasion. It was perfect all the way around.

Wedding anniversary celebration. We were treated like royalty. Personalized menu, two dedicated servers to our table. And the food was par excellence! One of the singular best dining experience in our lives (and we eat out st least three times a week at Open Tables too-ranked restaurants. PassionFish is simply next-level dining!

We love a Passion Fish, the best in RTC. The crispy flounder is our favorite item on the menu. This was a birthday celebration for my husband and restaurant week. Great anytime, but extra special value during this week. Thank you to the manager and server for taking such good care of us, we will see you soon!

All excellent, including service, but removed one star because one of the servers came to inform us that an item ordered had gluten in it and the person who ordered it couldn’t have gluten - which was excellent - however she walked away and didn’t return to offer a replacement. Once our appetizers arrived, that guest had no appetizer and needed to request another option at that point and wait for her appetizer. Slight fail at otherwise amazing restaurant (been to other locations and Reston is the BEST!) Food is always excellent and restaurant week prices can’t be beat!
