We ordered the grilled oysters which were good and done well. My partner ordered the tandoori salmon which was really good. I ordered the crab cakes and had a choice of sides. I chose the mac and cheese. The crab cakes were meh, but the Mac and cheese was similar to Kraft dinner with wonder bread crumbs on the top. Not good!

Great meal, the food superb, and fantastic waiter service by Maria. She was very attentive, incredibly efficient, and a great conversationalist. She never missed a beat, and anticipated very well. She and the rest of the staff really made the night special. The staff is truly thankful for the patronage during this time and it shows. Social distancing was impressively set up around the dining room. Try the hot crab and shrimp spring rolls; and the lobster red curry, a couple of our favorites.

We had a lovely Christmas Eve dinner with wonderful service. Everyone enjoyed their meals of scallops, fish, steak, and crab cakes. Portions were generous and side dishes were delicious--mushrooms, mac and cheese, and brussel sprouts. The chocolate mousse bomb dessert is heavenly.

OMG! The food was so good, my friend was actually licking his plate! When I gave him a horrified look, he said "hey, if Gordon Ramsay can, so can I!" LOL! This whole family of restaurants never disappoints...

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.
