We have eaten here before and we always have a nice experience. The service is always 1st class and so is the food. You do get value for the price.
You’ll always have an exceptional experience there.

Wonderful. The Alaskan Halibut was a spectacular special as was the Sushi Roll. We especially love the wine selection - some unusual choices - we did Kim Crawford Rose- went well with all

We're extremely grateful for your feedback and appreciate you dining with us this past week. Do have a very eclectic selection of old and new world wines simply because we offer a wide variety of flavors and concept styles in our dishes as well. Most evenings at PassionFish Reston, we offer a chef specialty entree that is not featured on our menu. These dishes are generally much different from what is normally offered and we want a wine list that reflects the same dynamic. See you next time.

Service was lacking. Wait staff removed bread plate while we were still using them. Worse table we have had there in about six visits. Ordered lobster but there was no bib. Finally, manager was carrying on a loud conversation right next to our table.

Food was wonderful but the experience lacked.

We were really disappointed with the food. It is really expensive and either lacked taste or was a poor quality size.

PassionFish - Reston VA
Responded on 9 July 2020

First, thank you so much for your honest feedback about your experience that evening. You didn't have to leave a review but because you did, it allows us the feedback we need in order to improve and fine tune your dining experience. However it deeply saddens me that you were celebrating an anniversary from what i can see in the notes and did not enjoy the selections served that evening. From what I can see you had the tenderloin entree and the crab cakes as your main course. I have passed along your review of the food to the chef and we will take a look at ways we can possibly improve on these selections. The tenderloin is something new we are trying since reopening and I've discussed with kitchen staff to be aware of temperatures/ overcooking. Given the current global climate of the seafood industry, we try our best to maintain a realistic price point for our guests while providing a fresh product delivered daily. Accompanied with that, pertaining to our crab cakes specifically, we offer two 4 ounce cakes (8 ounces) of crab meat pan seared, with just a touch of rice flour, mayonnaise, lemon juice and old bay as a bond agent to hold things together so with each bite, you may enjoy primarily just crab meat. I have also discussed with servers and staff about the importance of checking to see if guests are enjoying their selections in real time so may fix issues such as this before your experience is complete and unresolved. Again, I am deeply saddened by your experience and wish very much for another opportunity to provide you with the service, food and overall hospitality that has made PassionFish Reston a premier dining destination for over a decade. I hope these words find you and your family safe and in good health - PassionFish Management

Passion Fish has always been a reliable go-to restaurant for me and my family. The food and service have always been outstanding. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case this time, but I attribute that to Covid. The server was outstanding, their cleanliness and ways of dealing with Covid also outstanding, but food was mediocre. Specifically, the Thai Lobster dish was saturated in sauce, the rice was hard, and there was hardly any lobster in the dish. Overall thumbs down. My husband had the flounder, good, but with so much spicy sauce already applied, practically inedible. They also need to work on their Rose selections. They only have one and it’s not good.

Thank you for being a longtime guests with us and thank you for your honest feedback. The key to success in the restaurant business is consistency and we strive to stay consistent every single day but it seems we fail short of this on your last visit. I have reviewed these dishes with the chef on duty that evening as well as encouraged servers to really engage our guests, a few bites into their meal, to ensure they are enjoying the selections so we may make swift changes, in real time, to maintain your confidence and satisfaction in our food and service. Again, thank you for this feedback and please stay safe until we see you again.

Food quality was not what i expected. All four dishes were either bit salty or too spicy. Service was mediocre. 7 dollars for 7 asparaguses for side dish was a bit pricy as nothing was done except heating up asparaguses. Seafood tasted fresh. Calamari was not exciting, in fact too salty. Not worth the price, i thought.
