Everything was sensational. The cocktails were generous. The raw bar appetizers were fresh and delicious. The service was attentive. My swordfish delighted. Even the after dinner coffee fished off the meal perfectly. Looking forward to the return trip.

We've been PassionFish customers since it opened in Reston Town Center, for dinners, lunches, brunches, and lately, curbside pickup. Although there hasn't been much progression in terms of menu development over the years, they've certainly been pleasingly reliable and professional, even polished, in terms of cooking and service. We must have partaken of their long running high value Sunday brunch a dozen times, because although it WAS brunch, it was high quality and well prepared. The special brunch pricing is now gone, which is OK, but this visit, so was the cooking. My Maine BLT omelette was way overcooked and sloppily plated, a big disappointment. A companion's huevos rancheros were also un-pretty. My wife's Chesapeake Benedict was excellent and appeared to be the most recently prepared, so that was the highpoint. However, the cocktails were even weaker than the usual brunch cocktails. I know these are difficult times, and we've appreciated their superb curbside pickup preparations. We're trying to support them, and will continue to -- until I'm served another omelette like that one! :-)

Went for my daughter’s 16th birthday after multiple other wonderful visits. Service was rushed, gumbo was not good, wasn’t the experience we were used to.

I had 2 steps in the door and i was treated with a warm and genuine greeting. Service was perfect from everyone starting with the front checkin to every person that brought us our drinks and food. A number of times management checked in with us. They truly went above and beyond especially during this crazy times. Outstanding job by all at Passion Fish.

We have dined at Passion Food Groups restaurants for decades. Passion Fish Reston is our favorite go-to. Saturday night out seafood restaurant. The chefs are masters, the sous chefs are superb, the cooks are seasoned, and the bar and dining room staff are professional and friendly. The managers do a superb job ensuring all customers - visitors and regulars are treated wonderfully. No matter what entree you order it will be hot, fresh, and super tasty.

We especially appreciate all the extra cleanliness efforts the restaurant complete to make your dining event safe, healthy, and non-disruptive. The special air purifier is greatly appreciated too.

Bon appetit.

Menu is solid. Service is excellent. Let hostess know we were celebrating a birthday. The server brought a lit candle with the coffee? A small dessert would have been nice.

Very Good COVID precautions.
Disappointed that brunch menu did not match the brunch menu on website which included Prosecco and dessert. Music was too loud for a calm brunch.

I made a reservation for standard seating...not outside. We were seated outside and it was breezy and too chilly. The service was terribly slow. We waited a long time to order a first round of drinks and a VERY LONG time to order food. The first dishes came out before the first round of drinks. The bottle of wine we ordered came out with the food and the intention was to have our cocktails before wine a d food. Not ideal this time.

Very uncharacteristic service based on the great experiences I’ve had here over the years.

I generally love eating at PassionFish. The food never disappoints.
Our server was fantastic and explained their “rules” as far as masks and leaving the table, which we really appreciated. That being said, a group of 4 men walked by our table (and everyone else’s) without wearing masks. If you’re going to take the time to implement a mask policy, you should also enforce it..IMO.

The food was terrific as usual. The grilled octopus and oysters are always our go-to starters. The bronzino was good although a tad smaller than usual.
We sat upstairs, where we had never been before. It was much quieter than downstairs.
