It was my first time dining at PassionFish in Reston on Sunday January 22nd and I had an outstanding time. My server was attentive and super friendly. The ambiance is very luxurious and a perfect place to go for date night. The food was perfectly portioned and tasted extraordinary. Everything about this restaurant is all you want your dining experience to be. PassionFish has definitely set the bar.

The experience and food overall was okay. It wasn't as good as we were hoping it was going to be. They weren't serving the restaurant week menu although it was the last day of restaurant week because it was Brunch only. They were out of one of the brunch menu items we wanted. The service was REALLY slow too.. we were there for 2.5 hours. But in general food was tasty and restaurant is nice.

Did their Sunday brunch, great value and amazing food. My husband and I loved everything we ate, but what really made it a great experience was the service we got. Our waitress was attentive but didn't rush service despite being busy, 5 star service from Vivian.

I've heard so many positive comments about PassionFish, so I was very excited to meet my sister and niece there for brunch. The waiter was very pleasant and the ambiance was nice. Our waiter highly recommended the seafood crepe, so I ordered that and the seafood cobb salad. The crepe was filled with what appeared to be a seafood bisque. It was runny and really didn't have much flavor. The salad arrived and looked pretty good. The menu said it came with blue cheese, I didn't see or taste any blue cheese. The pinkish salad dressing was very odd and did nothing to enhance the taste of the salad. The bacon on the salad was very delicious. Needless to say, I was very underwhelmed. When we left, I asked my daughter how her food was. She had ordered the squash/lobster bisque and the chesapeake benedict. She enjoyed her soup, but was not pleased with the benedict. I later asked my sister what she thought, and she was disappointed as well. My sister has been there for lunch and really liked it before. Given the competition in RTC, I won't be back for brunch. If someone invites me there for a different meal, I'll probably give it another try, but not of my own volition.

Restaurant Week menu is quite good at PassionFish. Service was excellent on a busy night. Muscadet wine is very good with fish.

Disappointed that they do not serve Albariño or Vermentino, both excellent seafood wines.

It was Friday during restaurant week, so they were very busy. We had John as our waiter again, and he was excellent. Very personable and knowledge, kept things moving along without rushing or lagging. The butternut squash lobster bisque was excellent, and the Arctic char (like trout salmon hybrid) was delicious with the verde sauce. Pumpkin cheesecake for dessert also very good. My only quibble was that the hurricane cocktail has shrunk in size while increasing in price ($14) and wasn’t mixed well. All the alcohol was on top and was too harsh.

The noise level was almost deafening when we left at 730. Fortunately we ate at 6 and it was considerably quieter. The food was excellent and service was great until it came to Desert when we had to go and look for our waiter. We found the prices to be outrageous for a dinner for 2.

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.

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.
