We went for our anniversary and were very impressed with our service. The attention to detail -- from menus that said happy anniversary on them to bringing out a candelit dessert for us -- was awesome and very much appreciated. On top of that, our server was extremely knowledgable and friendly. All of our food was wonderful as well. Thank you for a great experience, and we can't wait to come back again soon.

We came to Passion Fish for a dinner of 4. It was extremely busy and loud and we were promptly seated at 6:30pm. The food this time was just ok- it tasted fine but it there was no wow factor like it was the last time we visited. The courses came as requested but the unique charm of the night was just ok- perhaps it was the noise, the waitress Noura was good at what she did but not really outgoing or engaging. Tonight everything just seemed to be off a bit from the timing of food to presentation

My husband and I had lunch at Passion Fish for the first since the pandemic. The ceviche and warm donut holes were excellent. Everything else was very good. The service was also excellent. We were disappointed, however, that they no longer have the whitefish spread on crostini or lobster rolls. Hopefully, they will serve them both again once things are back to normal.

Waiter (Matt B.) was very friendly. Went here for a birthday. We had the crab cakes (awesome), whole crispy fried fish, and tandoori tiger prawns, along with a dozen oysters. All very good. Same with desert (chocolate bomb and caramel bread pudding). This is not an inexpensive place, however. And having to pay Reston Town Center rent doesn't help. My one nit was the oysters were supposed to be half price according to our waiter, but we were charged full price for 1/2 dozen. And they raised the shades on the big windows a little early and I got a blast of sun in my eyes for about 30 minutes of the dinner. I have had a 5-start dinner here before, this last time was just a tad less. Highly recommend for special occasions though. A nice experience and the restaurant was not to loud (though it was Tuesday).

I had indicated it was my husband’s birthday and there was no mention of this (Passion Fish is known for doing something special for special occasions). The server was slow and left the menus on the table and even but silverware on them. We were expecting more for the prices. Fortunately the food was very good.

I really liked the food and service. I had the ceviche, Passionfish sushi roll, and egg rolls. I was disappointed with the raspberry pisco sour. It was way too strong and I couldn’t taste anything else. Not sure why they don’t do much for birthdays either, but I still had a good time.

Our reunion of 6 old friends was great! We were in a quiet area so everyone could hear each other, the food and drink were wonderful in their variety, the service just right: we got what we wanted and weren't pestered. A very lovely experience.

In our experience, PassionFish is the best fish restaurant in Northern Virginia. They have a broad selection of fresh fish on the menu and the preparation is outstanding. In addition, the restaurant has a sushi menu which can be an appetizer or a main course. Service is attentive and informative if you have questions but not intrusive. The restaurant is attractively decorated but one is seated in open areas on the main floor and the balcony and in this sense it is not an intimate or romantic setting. Given the quality of the restaurant the pricing is reasonable, but this is a pricier meal particularly if one purchases wine.

We got there at 11:45 on a Thursday for lunch. We were one of the first in the restaurant. One of us made the mistake of asking for his sushi roll to come out before his salmon. The waiter didn't put the rest of the order in until he was finished with his sushi roll so it took 1 hour and 20 minutes for the food to come out. They sent out ceviche while we were waiting which was nice. I was fine up to here. Then the sushi towers came out and it was worse than supermarket sushi. Dry rice. Over cooked lobster. My 21 year-old son who eats everything and never complains said it was terrible and he didn't even want to eat it. I spoke to the manager and he apologized and took one of the sushi towers off the bill which was a satisfactory resolution. However in my rush to leave to get to a meeting I didn't notice until I got home that they had charged me for the ceviche they sent out. In addition they changed the recipe for their rillettes spread and it was not nearly as good as the addictive spread of previous visits. The music was so loud we couldn't hear the waiter or each other very well. Such a shame that this restaurant has gone downhill. It used to be our go to nice lunch place in Reston but I will be choosing one of the many other places next time.

Started with excellent oysters and very pleasant wine, followed by a stream of disappointing dishes: over-buttered, over-sweet, cold Crab cold Whole Crispy Flounder; and cold cajun-cooked Soft Shell Crab sandwich (special) – the latter two very oily, and something served with enough monosodium glutamate (MSG) to make me and my wife sick after her birthday lunch -- or first meal out since declaration of the pandemic in March 2020. :(

Everything was great, just wish the upstairs balcony seating area had been opened for a more spread out (quieter) dining experience. Everyone was packed like sardines on the first floor. Food was amazing per usual. Scallops and mahi mahi were dynamite. I’d recommend bringing back the Calamari —- the appetizers offered were not as robust as they were a few weeks ago.

I've been wanting to try PassionFish for a while and I'm so sorry I waited t his long. The menu is wide and varied and the food was wonderful. It was a bit difficult to hear as the noise level while not crazy, was a bit energetic and throw into the mix face masks, it made understanding the wait staff a bit of a challenge. But overall, I was happy and satiated and will be back.
