It was a great evening catching up with friends. The weather was warm enough to be seated on the patio with ample social distancing between tables. Our server, Maria, was very personable and attentive and the food was customarily on point.

Such a great choice for amazingly prepared seafood. When there is only...count’em...ONE beef selection on the menu...you know the water procured protein is going to be sensational! Passionfish has never disappointed.

Started with Chesapeake Oysters and I opted for scallops with thick bacon and a sauce that was terrific. Soul Mate did the Black Bass with a pepper red sauce on the side. Very generous portions. Claudia was spot on with suggestions and water refills. Will return often.

Wonderful dining experience by Chef Jeff, Chef Chris and the entire tram of the superb Passionfish. Greeted warmly by hosts. Taken to our socially distanced table, served by a wonderful and knowledgeable server the freshest sushi and fish to all 6 of us. We will be back, as always, and bravo to the whole team in a great dining experience! 👍🍾👌👏

It is great to get back to dining out in a safe environment. I have always enjoyed this restaurant, and am thankful they survived the roughest times and upped their game. I love their creative ideas with food. The ceviche and anything with octopus are generally my go-to favorites. On this last time, we were with friends who don't eat much seafood, and they went out of their way to accommodate them.

I highly recommend this restaurant. It is one of our favorites in the area. It’s very elegant, white linen, but slightly modern. The food is amazing but very expensive. Dinner and drinks for four people costs about $300.

I took my wife and young daughter here for a date night. The service was excellent and the food was fantastic as well! It's a little slower paced so it might not be a great spot for all younger children. We really enjoyed it and had a great experience!

We had an amazing experience at New Years, with lots of personal attention from staff and managers. Certainly not expecting all that for this trip, it is a big reason for the return visit. This night lacked that same feeling. This experience was not as good. Restaurant was much more crowded, almost like a normal night pre COVID. Table location was nice, white table cloth. Tables were a little too close for comfort. I say that because we chose this restaurant specifically because of the impressive spacing at New Years. Service was very good and food was good, but not as good as New Years. Swordfish was wonderful. Lobster Curry was not on mark, desert not as good and pulled from the fridge, not fresh. Wine selection changed a bit. I would give it a B+.

First visit to PassionFish since start of pandemic. The restaurant and staff have taken steps to make patrons feel safer with all staff elevating masks, gloves and less table density. Beyond the usual there was hydroxylation air treatment machines both upstairs and downstairs; servers carrying disinfecting gels dispensers; cleaned pens for signing check etc. The only area of possible concern is at the check-in desk where it got crowded with patrons in the bar area, people waiting for their table and guests checking in.
Food was good with a more limited menu. Service was very good with attentive staff and it felt comfortable dining indoors with good spacing and high ceilings.

We shared the scallops entree. It was perfect, with delicious bacon and roasted cauliflower. The sushi rolls were good (Passion Fish roll and Tiger King), but not my favorite. The key lime pie dessert was also awesome. Dining here was a treat, and by far the nicest experience we’ve had in quite a while!

Finally was able to try this restaurant. Particularly went for the charbroiled oysters and I was NOT DISAPPOINTED, they were amazing. Food just got better and better. We had the curry lobster and flounder entrees and the food was DELICIOUS. Our waitress Maria made our first visit spectacular. The management was very attentive and social ensuing we were enjoying our meal. Made us feel like regulars...which we will be from here on. Plan to visit at least once a month and tomorrow is the 1st of the month so a short wait. Lol. Thanks.

Excellent food, our server was responsive but in a automaton way. He did not ask us obvious questions, such as when ordering desert, if we’d like coffee etc. Overall, food was as excellent as always.

We ordered butternut and lobster bisque, spring rolls and beet salad, all of which were really excellent. The only slight disappoint was the ceviche, which seemed to have sat in the sauce for too long - the fish was a bit tough and seemed to have turned color a bit. But still very tasty. Service was excellent. We will definitely be back soon.

Our server was an older gentleman that couldn’t hear well, and got upset/irked when he couldn’t hear over the noise of the restaurant. He also was snippy when he would forget to bring things we asked for, because he had to keep walking. Again, he was older and just seemed irritated that he had to work late.
The food was ok, not great for the price. Crab cakes were off tasting, all filler and didn’t have a good sear. Brussel sprouts were too salty. I’ve been here before and had a better experience. Today was an off day.

The fish was cooked perfectly! Our waitress was very friendly and, in fact, kind of fun. Service was perfect. There were six of us, and I can't remember what everyone ate, but nobody had a complaint. When my family visits, we usually take them to PassionFish. Never disappointed.
