The place was pretty empty when we arrived. It was early. I found that were not enough choices that did not have peppers in it. Even my beloved crab cakes had peppers, which does not make it a Chesapeake crab cake. Maryland/Chesapeake crab cakes do not have peppers of any kind in them. I ended up with the lobster tails which were drowning in butter or oil. I don’t like lobster but this was pretty much my only choice and would not order again. Actually I probably would not return.

We were blow away by the quality of the seafood and the creativity of the dishes. We ate outside so not sure about the noise level inside.

We were in the Reston area and visiting our “old haunts” and wanted some seafood so we tried passion fish. Turns out that it was the best seafood we had all week including spending most of the week on the eastern shore. Definitely will go here whenever we are in the area.

Passion Fish was an awesome choice for our family ‘s celebration dinner. We were 5?adults an 2 children. Norah was our server who responded to our questions and took very good care of us. We will return for our next family milestone event and celebration.

We met with friends for a nice night out and certainly were not disappointed. Among us, we had swordfish, mussels, blackened fish and crab cakes. All were quite good. My swordfish was properly cooked and nicely presented. My only complaint is that many of the entrees come without either a starch or a vegetable, causing you to have to order those as sides. The side portions seem too large for a normal serving but somehow not large enough to share. For the price, the restaurant ought to provide basic starch and veggies with their meals and then work with the customers to go from there. Lots of other restaurants do this, so it should not be beyond this one, which is an otherwise excellent restaurant.

Celebrating an engagement. the service was super and the food is always great. They went the extra mile to accommodate us with a special printed momento menu and the flower arrangement we brought with us for the table.

Elected outdoor dining on a perfect early evening. Same excellent cuisine with less interior chatter and clatter. This restaurant lends itself to special self-indulgent occasions, when price is no object.

We eat at Passion Fish every other month or so. This time it was for my mother’s 96th birthday. My sister and her family come into town for the occasion. It was perfect all the way around.

Wedding anniversary celebration. We were treated like royalty. Personalized menu, two dedicated servers to our table. And the food was par excellence! One of the singular best dining experience in our lives (and we eat out st least three times a week at Open Tables too-ranked restaurants. PassionFish is simply next-level dining!

We love a Passion Fish, the best in RTC. The crispy flounder is our favorite item on the menu. This was a birthday celebration for my husband and restaurant week. Great anytime, but extra special value during this week. Thank you to the manager and server for taking such good care of us, we will see you soon!

All excellent, including service, but removed one star because one of the servers came to inform us that an item ordered had gluten in it and the person who ordered it couldn’t have gluten - which was excellent - however she walked away and didn’t return to offer a replacement. Once our appetizers arrived, that guest had no appetizer and needed to request another option at that point and wait for her appetizer. Slight fail at otherwise amazing restaurant (been to other locations and Reston is the BEST!) Food is always excellent and restaurant week prices can’t be beat!

Service was poor, waiter had to come back and ask what our order was several times, and we still were given the wrong dessert! Oysters were good, sushi was fine but sloppy in execution. Fish size was a good portion. Brussel sprouts were over salted. Eggplant was good.

We had a fine dinner at Passion Fish, excellent service, cold drinks! I had the Atlantic Char, very tasty and my wife the Branzino. Our son had the gumbo, which was also excellent. The Brussels sprouts side dish is killer! The only gripe with the food was the branzino, which is a whole fish and very bony. Had to be very careful eating it. And its a mid-to-upscale seafood place so it ain't cheap! (But we weren't expecting it to be). Overall an excellent seafood restaurant, go and enjoy and don't worry about saving a couple of bucks. I can't wait to go back and try the sushi.....

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Passion Fish from the cocktail to the delicious swordfish and all that accompanied our dinner. The server was professional and friendly as were other staff members who helped serve. The manager stopped by to check on us and he discussed the sourcing of our dinner with expertise. It was a relaxing evening that felt like a perfect mini-vacation. Thank you Passion Fish!

Disappointed that a $5 charge was added this year if ordering the crabcake sandwich. Not sure we will bother driving from Arlington again (tolls).

I made a reservation to celebrate a friends bday. Didn’t realize it was Restaurant Week, which I typically avoid because of crowds, sub standard service and limited menu options. Happy to report just the opposite during this visit. RW menu was varied, portions were normally sized and value was excellent. Ceviche, grilled trout and key lime tart for $22!! And every course was delicious. Service was prompt and well organized. Have to say....I really have never had anything but a great experience at PF.

They have the best ceviche ever!!!! And their sushi is pretty darn good. I asked for the salmon and tuna entrée- they came back twice and said thy were sold out! Then I got something I didn’t really want which messed up the mood. Our server was trying to do her best so I don’t blame her at all. I go here many times and always have a good time, except this one time...it’s fine tho! I’ll go again for that amazing spicy ceviche
