    We always go to PassionFish for our anniversary (and sometimes for other special occasions). The food and service are consistently outstanding. The noise level is a little higher than we like, but we both wear hearing aids, and it’s possible that may have something to do with it. Free parking is convenient, right across the street in the Orange garage. We’ll keep going back as long as our experience continues to be as satisfying as it’s been over the years.

    Worst service experience in my entire life. Got there at exactly 6pm and did not leave until 9:45 due to slow service and a waiter that never came to check on us. We were dying of thirst and had to wave other waiters down to get anything.

    The main course meal was good. The sushi was average with too much rice. The service was okay. But considering the special occasion and the amount of money spent, I expected more. There was no lunch or Valentine Day specials.

    Thanks for the feedback, David. We're sorry to hear that our sushi and overall experience did not meet your expectations. We strive to provide a memorable experience for all our guests and it seems we fell short this time. We appreciate your feedback and will use it to improve. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again in the future.

    Passion Fish is one of our "go-to" restaurants, but last night was a little disappointing. We love to split the mini seafood tower, but the last couple of times we were disappointed with the oysters. We mentioned that to the manager as we were being seated in the hopes that the oysters would be better tonight. Alas, they were not. They were small, very thin, and very disappointing. Also, the "prawns" were just medium-sized shrimp and not as large as we typically get. The service was great, and Passion Fish is always a good experience, but last night was disappointing.

    Great restaurant! We went to celebrate my husband’s birthday. It was such a nice touch to have Happy Birthday written on the menu. The calamari appetizer was really good. Caesar salad just okay, lettuce didn’t seem fresh. The halibut was delicious! Rockfish was really good, would have preferred a thicker piece though. The donut holes were a very tasty dessert. Service was excellent. We will be back.

    The cuisine at PassionFish is always delectable with the freshest seafood that is expertly prepared & presented. The restaurant is also accommodating to vegetarians/vegans with their veggie curry & pasta option. They also boast a well curated wine selection - most are offered at 50% off on Sundays.

    We had a wonderful experience during restaurant week lunch. Among three diners there were only enjoyable course selections with plenty to choose from even for gluten free requirements for one of us. The service was attentive without being rushed or interrupted, each course came out at just the right time and the ambiance of the establishment is beautiful - open and airy with nice décor touches. A great experience!

    I love passionfish but the service on this day was very disappointing. They didn’t seem particularly busy, but it was a chore to find our server or really anyone when our table needed attention. On the few occasions we did see our server, he wasn’t proactive about other items in plain sight like refilling drinks or clearing the table (we’d have to flag him or someone else down again). He seemed like a very pleasant guy and gave us some good recommendations from the menu when we asked, but just not very attentive.

    Wow! Extended Restaurant Week here was well worth it! Great value, generous portions of delicious food and excellent service. I had the tuna crudo spoons to start. Delicious clean protein. Then the lobster red curry with pineapple which is amazing. Slightly spicy curry sauce offset by the sweet sour pineapple. And the chocolate bombe for dessert is crazy good. A hazelnut bottom that is nestle crunch like, topped with firm chocolate mousse that is coated in a chocolate shell. Heavenly. Cant wait to go back again.

    Go restaurant week. Fantastic value for lunch. Katie at reception, Matt B the server and Damien the manager make you feel at home in this beautiful, modern, spacious restaurant. We had artuc char and trout almondine. Generous well prepared portions. Food can fit Mediterranean, DASH, and MIND diets. We will be back. All the food was delicious. The salad was large and fresh.. The house made sorbet was best I have ever had.

    Outstanding food. Bar area was a little crowded (too many stools for the space allotted) and I wish there were hooks under the bar for purses/coats. Had the bar been more comfortable, we probably would have stayed there to eat, but since we had a reservation, we moved to a table in the main dining room. Good happy hour specials.

    We tried out this restaurant for Brunch during Restaurant Week. We were seated quickly at our reserved time. The bread basket came out quickly as well and we got our water. However, it took 30 minutes before the waiter showed up to take our orders. He didn’t greet us or introduce himself. Service was quite slow overall. It didn’t seem terribly busy either. All the food was delicious and the ambience was great but our waiter was not very pleasant overall. Wish we had a better experience.

    Restaurant Week Friday on a snowy day. What a shame so many people canceled due to weather - it was lovely and we had no trouble getting there. Understandably, we don’t have kids; we know schools were closed. Delicious food. Comforting, tasty, gourmet food. Friendly staff. It was our second time there this week so we got to try completely new things.

    My wife and I enjoyed a delicious restaurant week lunch. She had the fish sandwich and I had the snapper almondine. The food was excellent, the service was very good, and the staff were all friendly and courteous. Only down side was needing to drive to Reston after the Bethesda location closed.

    This is a MUST for Restaurant Week! Great value and outstanding, delicious food. Took a friend there for a farewell dinner and it was a real treat. She had the crab cakes as she will not see much of those back in France. Said they were delicious with lots of crab and only enough filling to hold them together. I had my favorite, the lobster red curry, and it is so delicious. The spicy curry is offset by the tangy pineapple and generous chunks of lobster. The 3-course dinner is an amazing value!
