Enjoyed my parents’ anniversary dinner with them while they were visiting from Delaware. The service and drinks were excellent and the food was good less the gumbo.

We had a very good dinner last night at Passion Fish. The ceviche and grilled octopus were excellent; the Atlantic Char was fresh and very good. I would give this restaurant 4 1/2 stars if that was an option. I just wish that they had not taken the complimentary fish spread and the lobster roll off the menu. Those were two of the three main reasons that we drove all the way to Reston for dinner pre-pandemic, the third reason being that ceviche.

Even though they have a whole documents indicating the precautions the employees take they failed on the most basic one, washing their hands and sanitizing them.
While we were waiting for the table at the bar i saw several employees including the manager going out to smoke NONE of them wash their hands, they all came inside and continue their duties... pretty disappointing.

Our visit to this restaurant Saturday evening was very disappointing indeed. There were far more tables/seats than their crew could manage. I took more than 15 mins to get our drink order. It took another 15 mins to get our appetizers. At each step, we waited long enough to get irritated - when asked, the waiter told us that they were short staffed and thus the alcohol bar and the sushi bar were both backed up. When we completed our appetizers, no one came to pick up the used plates. They need to do better coordination/management of the various teams if they want customers to have a good experience so they come back and/or refer friends. Very sad to have to send this note since I used to like this restaurant before and have been there many many times in the past.

Food as always is good but had to wait (after asking twice) for a refill on drinks and for salt and pepper. Love the restaurant but service was not as attentive as in the past.

Still a beautiful restaurant with excellent service, but the quality of food has become middling over the years. Too bad, as the prices are on the high side. We had an enjoyable dinner, but the food wasn't anything to write home about.

took 40 minutes to get my meal after getting an $11 salad that had nothing but lettuce and way too much dressing. after the bartender realized the wait was getting long, she offered bread that never showed up. talked to the manager who basically said, "yeah sorry. maybe we'll do better next time." definitely have absolutely no reason to go back.

There were a high number of gnats and fruit flies the entire meal. Staff was dismissive of our concern. Our waiter was attentive and capable. The servers were another story. Fingers all over the plates before serving and unable to identify the fish being served…it’s a seafood place…. Two of us were sharing a salad and entree….had to retrieve my own plates from another table so we could share. The food was meh…the shrimp and sushi was delicious. The swordfish was much smaller than expected. The artic chard was way over cooked but seasoned well. The gumbo was good.

I know this place could be much better.

My husband and I went for our anniversary. We sat outside and it was breezy and pleasant. Our waiter was very nice, had great humor and made sure we were very happy. We ordered the spider rolls, the everything bagel salmon, grilled octopus and bucket of fries. We had the blood orange moon cocktail and warm donut holes for dessert. Everything was superb and cooked perfectly!

They acknowledged my birthday when we walked in but didn’t actually do or say anything after that. Kind of weird since they brought it up… not us. But all in all a good experience

The staff was absolutely amazing. Extremely accommodating and pleasant. The seafood gumbo was yummy and a hefty portion. The manager was equally axing! We live in MD and stopped in for dinner after a long flight. We will definitely dine there again!
