Disappointed we had a birthday celebration and it was not acknowledged. I specifically noted it in our reservation. Service extremely slow.

Great meal! They put us at a nice corner booth, our server and the food and drinks were awesome. Had the sake cosmo martini, lemonade cocktail and blueberry lemon martini. The passion fish sushi roll was the best, also had the spicy salmon roll. Started with the potstickers and spring rolls, yum! We had a reservation and we’re seated right away, service was fast.

We haven’t been to Passionfish in many years, not sure why but it happens. We were able to sit outside which was lovely and our server, Matt, was delightful! He was also very helpful and knowledgeable in food and wine selections! Service was excellent and our meals were very good. 2 swordfish that was very fresh, a perfect thickness, (so many places cut it too thinly), and cooked perfectly. 1 scallops with pea risotto which was very good also, and 1 whole branzino again cooked perfectly! All in all a very enjoyable evening! Thank you Passionfish and Matt!

Dinner was fine, however our waiter kept the cooler for our bottle of white wine at his Serving Station and filled glasses at the next table with OUR bottle. (They were drinking the same wine). We brought this to his attention and he denied doing it. He was a bit 'huffy' with my wife and I for the rest of our dinner. In his defense, the restaurant was very busy last night, but the wine cooler should have been kept next to our table; not at his service station.

Service was poor - long waits for cocktails, appetizers, entrees.
waitress seemed to have too many tables to tend.
Complained to manager after dinner.
Her only response:"We're doing our best".
Passionfish will be "doing it's best" from now on without me.

Expected service to be a little slow and it was. The menu is condensed, prices are up, unfortunate but also to be expected. Food was terrific as always and we will be back.

We really enjoyed our dinner . However , the booth we sat in was way too tight . No one in our party is large . The table was pressed up against us to the point that it was uncomfortable . The noise level was very high . The service was inattentive . We will probably not return .

PassionFish was excellent as usual. Our server was fantastic; very friendly, energetic and extremely knowledgeable about the wine and food menus. We’ve dined here several times since the pandemic started, but this was the first time the place was relatively crowded and lively, almost back to normal.
I had my normal red curry lobster and our friend tried it for the first time as well. It did not disappoint. And dinner wouldn’t be complete without the donut holes.

Food was ecellent. I love that they scaled down the menu to offer fewer items than the last time I was there a year or so ago. Selections were great and our waiter, Geoff was on point

Consistently good. Noticed the prices may have gone up somewhat (like many restaurants) in this COVID lag period but willing to support this fine establishment and see it fully recover. The Bethesda location closed this past year and would hate to see the Reston location follow.

We were misquoted on market prices, and drowning in dishes the entire time. We had to stack dishes and rearrange them on our table so our kids could eat. TERRIBLE service. Once our waitress recognized her first mistake, she never visited us again unless we got up and flagged her down. Other waiters were more attentive. Overall this was McDonald’s-level service at much higher prices.

They did not seem to know it was our anniversary.
The Thai lobster curry was an alarming $46 and though tasty, was over priced.

Always excellent. We had a Friday night patio dinner and the seafood is always fresh. The got oysters, dumplings, and the crab cakes and we split a bottle of Opus One. Our server went above and beyond. I don’t know his name but we have been served by him multiple times and he always lets us know about the specials and takes special care when we order wine. He knows about all the wines on the
list and can always answer any question we have about the food.

Disappointed in my beloved Passion Fish. Won’t be back again until they are back to their pre CoVID quality. The service was great but the food was nothing special for the price. Spring rolls not impressive and salad was just greens and so heavily dressed it was almost wilted. Nothing special for $11. Equivalent to a bagged salad at giant. We sat outdoors and The couple behind us ordered a fish entree and we could smell it from our table. Smelled like bad fish. Certainly not fresh. Fresh fish should not smell. That made me worried about getting raw fish sushi. I used to look forward to dining here for a special occasion but won’t be back any time soon.
