Went for lunch during restaurant week. The waiter took our license plate and validated the Reston Town Center parking so that was easy:)
The waiter was attentive but not in your face, much appreciated. The crab and corn chowder and California roll appetizers were both very good. Had the crab cake and salmon sandwiches. The crab cake was excellent, the salmon patty was a bit dry. The French fries and sweet potato fries were well seasoned.
Creme brûlée for dessert was what you would expect. A little fruit or something on top would have made the presentation better. The chocolate bomb cake dessert was excellent.

I call it a "mixed bag". We were there Restaurant Week, and arrived 5 minutes early. The reception area was quite crowded, and confusing. We were seated 10 minutes later at a nice, quiet table. Our waiter was excellent. Lobster butternut bisque was delicious, but the ceviche was a disappointment. Grilled salmon was excellent while the lemon sole was so overcooked, and dry, that I could have prepared it better myself (and I am no pro). Pumpkin cheesecake was good, but the chocolate mousse dessert was disappointing. I doubt that we'll return because I see the possibility, there, for a splendid meal, but also, for an awful meal at a very high price.

Food was delicious. Waitress was shockingly rude. One of several examples, "Oh you wanted dessert, well you didn't tell me that." Really?!?

I did restaurant week with my girlfriend and the choices were good and I got the gumbo which was just spicy and filling enough for me. The spicy salmon rolls were good and the pumpkin cheesecake tart was good

Early dinner at Passionfish consisting of oysters, sashimi, and 3 glasses of extremely good Red Zin picked by my very friendly, funny, and helpful bartender. Comfortable seating that makes you feel like you are part of the bar. Friendly helpful staff. Great food. Go here. Right now.

My boyfriend and I came to Passionfish for our 2 year anniversary. I loved the atmosphere, and the staff was very kind and accommodating. The table was set beautifully all candle lit. The food was amazing. I would recommend the butternut squash soup & the sushi with the fried lobster. The dessert was amazing too. I would recommend getting the donuts with the coffee dip and the key lime tart. It was by far the best restaurant I’ve been to in a long time.

We visited PassionFish in 2018 whilst on a business trip and had a great time/really enjoyed the food and drinks. It made it the obvious choice when we visited in Jan 2019.

First time eating there for me, my husband had been there a couple of times. It was a fixed price New Year's Eve menu, which was fine. The service started out good and gradually declined to just okay. The place was busy, but not horribly so. But the noise level was completely unbearable, and as good as the food was, I probably won't go back.

Confident about how we would be treated, we made a reservation for a special anniversary (although they've all been special). We were not disappointed. Service (Robert) was friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, not intrusive. My oysters were great, as was my trout. My wife enjoyed her salmon and her Brussels sprouts. We wanted a delightful evening and Passion Fish provided it.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal to celebrate our daughter's 36th birthday! She chose the place as it is one of her favorites. The grouper special was nothing special my husband said, but he cleaned his plate. My whole fried flounder was perfect as was the assorted sashimi. Our daughter said the scallops were underwhelming but she had always wanted to try them. The spirits and wine were great! The service from Oscar and Jack was top-notch!

Food was amazing, service impeccable. The only disappointment was where they seated us, jammed at the very rear of the restaurant next to a group of very loud drunk patrons. My kids had never been to PF so they were not impressed with the atmosphere. Plus, son is completely deaf in one ear so it was difficult for him to hear above the noise.

This was my first visit to this restaurant and it won't be my last. It was a wonderful experience. I was meeting a friend for dinner, it was raining, when we arrived we were greeted pleasantly and our coats and umbrellas were checked. We were seated quickly and our server was phenomenal. The food was EXCELLENT and for the restaurant to be packed almost to capacity it was very easy to converse with one another. I really enjoyed myself.
