Menu is solid. Service is excellent. Let hostess know we were celebrating a birthday. The server brought a lit candle with the coffee? A small dessert would have been nice.

Very Good COVID precautions.
Disappointed that brunch menu did not match the brunch menu on website which included Prosecco and dessert. Music was too loud for a calm brunch.

I made a reservation for standard seating...not outside. We were seated outside and it was breezy and too chilly. The service was terribly slow. We waited a long time to order a first round of drinks and a VERY LONG time to order food. The first dishes came out before the first round of drinks. The bottle of wine we ordered came out with the food and the intention was to have our cocktails before wine a d food. Not ideal this time.

Very uncharacteristic service based on the great experiences I’ve had here over the years.

I generally love eating at PassionFish. The food never disappoints.
Our server was fantastic and explained their “rules” as far as masks and leaving the table, which we really appreciated. That being said, a group of 4 men walked by our table (and everyone else’s) without wearing masks. If you’re going to take the time to implement a mask policy, you should also enforce it..IMO.

The food was terrific as usual. The grilled octopus and oysters are always our go-to starters. The bronzino was good although a tad smaller than usual.
We sat upstairs, where we had never been before. It was much quieter than downstairs.

Our go-to place for a special meal, easily the best restaurant in the Reston area, and up there with all the other great restaurants in Northern Virginia. We started with a dozen very fresh and tasty oysters. Then the Thai lobster pot was superb (and has been every time I've had it) and the scallops were perfectly done and tasty. We sat outside so it was quiet (except for the cars). The wait staff and mgt. treat guests like royalty, and it definitely pays to be a member of their loyalty club. We used points and this meal was basically free (after having eaten there for many years).

Excellent birthday evening for our daughter. Service was impeccable and they mentioned the birthday as soon as we were seated which made her feel very special. Food was excellent. Sushi and Cervice were amazing. The big daddy appetizer was excellent and perfect for the 4 of us to share. Outdoor dining was nice, though a little busy right on the street, but not bad. Great evening had by all. Will definitely return again.

Great. We wish was that there had been a little bit larger serving of rice with the Thai Red Curry Lobster. Dressing on Cesar Salad was also not very good, but that may be a personal preference. We like a creamier dressing

Wonderful fresh seafood, service, and careful Covid safety measures. We regular weekly dinner at Passion Fish Reston and after 12 years of dining we have never had a bad meal or service. Passion Fish chef’s are top drawer and consistently prepare superb fresh seafood and sides. The managers, hosts, servers, and bar tenders are uber professional and friendly. We appreciate Passion Food Groups owners efforts during these trying times. Ad long-time customers we are always in for a great fresh seafood meal and superb service. Passion Fish Reston or Bethesda - both equally excellent.

We enjoyed blackened Halibut and the amazing Halibut special served over a deep fried rice cake lady evening. A great bottle of Fable Chardonnay was also enjoyed. Cheers.

The menu has not changed significantly in years, so you rely on the chef and specials for variety. That said, the quality of the food is high and the service is wonderful. We ate on the patio, which was nice.

Thank you for your honest and genuine feedback. Each season the team here at PassionFish sit down and decide which selections to replace and which items to leave in. The reason we still have selections you remember from a previous years is because of the demand for them and the backlash from removing them. Other items change out simply because they are seasonal (softshells, halibut, heirloom tomatoes, etc.). We offer specials as way to break of monotony as well as test out new dishes.

I reserved the earliest possible time available (9:15), however; once we were seated the waitress immediately informed us they close at 10pm. She repeatedly looked at her watch after each order...cocktails...appetizer....entree, etc.

Had hoped to enjoy the Restaurant Week lunch but learned, upon arrival, that they don’t honor the lunch special on Sundays (nothing noted on website.) So we shifted to their brunch menu: the Eggs Chesapeake were delicious and Huevos Rancheros special was good. The “Maine” BLT omelette was generous with the lobster but a little dry; I wished I had asked for Hollandaise. Our server was delightful and it was very pleasant sitting at an outdoor table.
