My wife & I have been coming to Passion Fish every year on our anniversary since they opened as well as a few other special occasions & i'd have to say if I've ever eaten in a better restaurant I don't remember. weather it's sushi-mi, sea bass or oysters, regardless of what you order the food & service here are consistently 1st rate. But I'd have to say my personal favorite however are the crab cakes... They are unbelievably good & that's coming from a crab cake snob who grew up in Baltimore Md. I'm always a little apprehensive they won't be quite as good whenever I come back but I've not been disappointed yet.

I haven't been to Passion Fish for quite some time. My last experience was a bit disappointing for the cost. However, last Saturday we were very pleased. The menu retains some old favorites like the dynamite sushi roll. A new entre, Kung Pao Ahi Tuna, was outstanding. The other guests in our party also thought the restaurant had improved and gotten back to its roots. It definitely worth a visit!

The service was less than stellar which is unusual. Our food was good and although we requested that each plate be brought out separately, two plates came out at once. It worked out well, so not an issue, but it wasn’t what we requested. Our sushi rolls were fabulous as always. The corn and crab soup was the perfect warm up. I’d skip the crab spring rolls next time.

Food was not good. My friend said the crab cocktail recommended as their best appetizer was tasteless and the texture seemed like it had been frozen. My scallops were cooked well but the taste was completely overpowered by the sauce. Oysters were good. Waiter had this odd super-salesy vibe that was more annoying than anything. Wine was good, decor is very nice.

Good but has been better in the past. Crab left much to be desired! Still, if you choose wisely, the food can be excellent. Price is high however and the place can be so loud that it’s difficult to carry a conversation without shouting.

We had an overnight layover at Dulles and were looking for a convenient and nice place for supper. We found Passionfish on Open Table and we had a very nice dinner! Great service, large menu with a lot of appealing options and the food was very good! We would definitely go back! So glad we tried it.

Great area and location for the DC/Virginia crowd. The parking was close and free after 5:00 pm. The restaurant has modern décor and was obviously very popular. The purpose was an early business dinner. The spacing of the tables was very good to hold discussion but unfortunately the noise level became very high into our meal and discussion. That being said, the service was excellent and the food was very good. The menu had a variety of choices for style and flavor and the pricing was reasonable. I would recommend for entertaining friends and celebrations. It would be an acceptable date location but I would not consider it romantic.

First time visiting PassionFish and was amazed. Perfect service and amazing quality food. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for something different than a typical chain. The appetizers, sushi and main courses were large. Make sure to go hungry.

My son arrived late from CO for a job interview. We had 9:45pm dinner reservations. Sooo quiet and a very attentive wait staff! Rolls warm, char grilled octopus in a Harissa Hummus with chick peas- yumm and my son had the lobster bisque. Atlantic char was grilled to perfection and hot!! Perception on the haricot verde. My son had seafood gumbo. Desserts sounded great but we were too full! Perfect pre interview meal!!

Very nice atmosphere and great service but food was unimpressive. Sashimi was gigantic chunks that were still frozen. Shrimp dish for kids was super salty. Octopus combo with BBQ sauce was strange.

Seems like a fun place for happy hour but proper birthday dining it was not.

Again service and decor I could give up to 5 stars but would need a palate makeover.

Have been there a few times in the past - went there with two friends recently to celebrate birthdays for two of us. We had an awesome waiter that was very knowledgeable in helping us decided what to order. The special he suggested was delicious and it was a lovely way to spend the afternoon.

Great food, wonderful service and a nice relaxed vibe. Passion Fish was fantastic. Our waiter " Matt " was very conversant with the menu and recommended several dishes which were all superb. We particularly enjoyed the Toro Tuna served sashimi style. I was also pleasantly surprised by the comprehensive nature of the resident wine list which reflects perfect pairing with the high quality and super fresh seafood.

I have been a long term Passion Fish customer. This visit was horrid, primarily due to a lone server at the bar. I made the mistake of dining on a high top in the bar area. Big mistake. Ordered my favorite meal of flounder. Food was delivered, and that was the last semblance of any customer service or interface. Never got a revisit for another drink with the meal or for the tab even. After an extended wait, I had to stand in Q at the bar to pay to get out of there. I will never order food in the bar area due to the woefully poor service.

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.
