I usually love everything about Passionfish. My last meal there was disappointing, though. One appetizer— fried calimari on a salad of parsley and dill — was inedible. The calimari rings were hard and dry, the dressing was so spicy and acidic that you could taste nothing else but heat and acid. My halibut entree was okay in taste, but the fish was overcooked. Finally, our server charged another table’s meal to our card! He also did not take note that one appetizer went uneaten. Not happy with this experience, and I am a longtime customer!
Wonderful food and warm and friendly servers. They are following virus protocols and all their staff is fully vaccinated.
Excellent food and service in modest but elegant setting
Awesome n reliable.
Food was absolutely delicious. I would definitely go back again.
This place was fantastic. First of all, the wine list is my favorite. Organized so so well, and the prices are un beatable, seriously they are crazy.
Food, also a huge hit! We ordered fish everything, and truly loved it all. Not particularly warm service, but super attentive. ( I’m just nitpicking I guess) honestly just go here, it’s amazing.
Amazing food and very friendly. One bad point is the 30 dollar cork fee.
The best quality food in the region at surprisingly low price level. We happily drive 2 hours and spend the night just to have dinner there.
Quiet, friendly and professional service. Fish preparations were exceptional.
Great Restaurant in Pacific Grove. Well worth the visit even if you are not into fish. After eating there you may become a fish lover. Excellent preparations with unique combination of cooking techniques and spices. Worth a trip to PG just for this.
Thank you for requiring vaccinations and masks to your employees!
We had three different fish entrees and all were just perfect.
Great wine list also.
What an unexpectedly good meal. We were traveling down the coast. Decided to stop for dinner - and found this restaurant on Open Table. It reviews were right on: excellent food. In terms of atmosphere: is not a tablecloth fine dining experience - as the décor is relatively casual. But the food and service certainly warrant very high ratings.
Second time back here and it was just as excellent as the first time. Delicious food and wine, nice ambiance, great service. I highly recommend you check this place out.
Just a wonderful flavorful experience. Great service. Worth it.
excellent choices for healthy nutritional choices, high performing staff, a great experience!
A wonderful dining experience recommended to us be 3 different close friends! Delicious fusion food paired w/ fairly priced wine and all reviewed by a most friendly staff member! Will definitely return!
We had not eaten at PassIon fish in a couple of years, we were pleased to see the same high quality of food and service was there. A Plus, the entire staff if vaccinated!
This was a delicious dinner and beautiful Pacific Grove town. Had a great time
Wonderful as always!
Excellent…this restaurant knows how to cook fish!!!!
Socially Distanced delicious fresh sustainable dining.
I have been to Passion Fish numerous times and it never disappoints.
Absolutely amazing food and exceptional service. Must go! The deserts are to die for!
Food was excellent. Service was fine, as was the setting. Decor was maybe a little spare. But once the food arrived I was no longer paying attention to the interior design.
As always, food and service were excellent. The wine available at reasonable prices is notable.
Birthday with husband and adult kids
Always a good meal at Passionfish. Great wine list with very low markup. Lovely 2016 Monthelie Douhairet Porcheret Burgundy and a delightful 2019 Domaine Louis Michel & Fils Butteaux Chablis Premier Cru. For starters we had a sea scallop with a zippy relish of walnuts, capers and golden raisins and crispy fried squid in a spicy Thai-inspired sauce. Then a course of spicy fish stew and mixed greens salad. For mains a lovely Coho salmon dish and a less lovely duck confit (the broccolini were charred and unpleasant to eat).
We were taking a trip up the California coast. Our Inn (Seven Gables) recommended Passionfish. We were blown away by the fantastic assortment of unique dishes. I had lamb that was slow cooked. My wife had the duck confit. Both were amazing. At the next table we’re a couple. Both of them are sommeliers. They were telling us that the wine menu was put together by someone who really knows wines well. In addition, the wine prices were way below what is typically charged in such a nice restaurant. Do yourself a favor and visit this very special restaurant.
Service was great.Food was tasty. Great time.
This restaurant is one of the best on the Monterey Peninsula and the best Fish Centric restaurant period.
Missed the biscuits!
We dined outside next to a heat lamp, wearing warm coats, and it was lovely to be out in the fresh air. I had the duck confit and it was fantastic. My husband had the salmon and it was also excellent. Service was friendly and competent. We both agreed that it was one of the best dining experiences in recent memory.
Have dined at Passion Fish previously; disappointed this time on several account: limited menu, general small portion sizes and spicing of dishes that overwhelmed the basic ingredients. Had to ask twice for coffee refill. Restaurant does not offer espresso or other specialty coffees. Impression is that restaurant is cost cutting.
Our two fish entrees were excellent tasting, but we felt that they were somewhat skimpy in that they did not really include a vegetable serving on the side. Our scallop appetizer was also excellent tasting, but it was a very small portion and definitely not worth $12. We felt that the waiter should have forewarned us that the scallop appetizer was a small portion. Also, the bread was not complimentary with the meal, but had to be ordered at an additional price. This made us feel like the restaurant was trying to take advantage of us. Also, the restaurant did not seem to have a glass of wine less than $12 which seemed rather steep for a value-conscious diner. In summary,
The service was very good
Hands down best bread pudding!
I love that their whole staff is fully vaccinated and everyone was very friendly and accommodating. They were able to seat us earlier since we got there before our reservation and accommodate some food allergies in our party.
Great food and great friendly service! Had the Dungeness crab salad and it was AMAZING!
The food was fantastic, the wine list is over the top and brilliantly nerdy. The service was spot on with a combination of professional and familial. Could not have been better.
Food was mediocre. Overcooked fish and duck. Appetizers had good intention and bad execution. Flavors were awful.
