Food was good but attention to detail was a bit lacking. The grapes in my martini were not fresh, missing side item for a $38 entree, tin foil given for left overs, no dessert silverware was given. For the entree menu prices they could be more generous with the side items. Not super impressed. Can go elsewhere for comparable items and leave satisfied with the entire experience. Server was nice.

Passion Fish is always great. I particularly love their Arctic Char and their mashed potatoes. I drive over there, always on weekends since I live in Maryland, just to enjoy the food. I've never been disappointed. This was a family favorite when they had a Bethesda location. It closed because of Covid 19 related seating restrictions. I hope that in the future Passion Fish opens a new Montgomery County location. For the time being, I'll continue my occasional weekend trips to Reston to enjoy its food.

Mediocre food. Very bland. Too expensive for what you get. 3 small scallops was $38! And it had no real taste. Service was subpar. Didn’t know the menu. If u want red lobster quality for high end prices this is the place for you. Atmosphere is good. Nice space

Haven’t been to Passion Fish since before the pandemic started. The restaurant was busy and vibrant. Service was good, not great, due to our server being overloaded with too many tables. She did her best and was very attentive when she was at our table. Food was what we expected, very good and fresh! They need to freshen up the menu, it’s the same it was the last time we were there, and they had no specials. We’ll be back.

The food and dessert were excellent. Recommendations of sauces, and hosting was great too. Though we did have to wait a bit for our glasses to be refilled, we understand that's to be expected in these times. The decor, chairs, and washroom need attention.

Our server was excellent! Food was delish! Love the simple preparation for the fish , which is always cooked perfectly. Let’s the flavor of fish shine and pairs well with the more adventurous sides to keep it interesting.

Incredible restaurant with a great atmosphere. Our server was fantastic and the food was just as delicious!! The manager was so personable and friendly and checked in on us a few times throughout our evening to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Went here for my birthday but will definitely be regular patrons for sure!!

All of our food came out room temperature. After waiting longer than expected for food given we were the first guests of the day. The manager gave no apology. We stated we didn’t want it remade as we have both worked in the food industry and know what can happen when you send food back. We merely wanted to pay our check and leave. We still ended up paying a decent amount as the manager didn’t remove all the food. Very disappointed as we went there to celebrate. As of right now after the cold food and poor treatment we won’t be back.

I assume Passion Fish is part of a chain restaurant group - not certain of that - but man they do an awesome job. This is my second visit here in less than month after buying a home nearby. First time I had their ‘sushi” as dinner. It’s not really sushi by Japanese food standards, but they do some really great rolls that seem very fresh and tasty. Highly recommend. Last night we started with the ceviche and it was both fresh and hugely tasty! For dinner I had the crab cakes…unique spices and very good. All at the table had seafood and all thought their dishes were exceptions. To top it off….they do blue cheese stuffed olives so I “had” to order a martini. So…twice in a row with many more dishes I want to try - we will be back. Atmosphere is good but when crowded as it was last night we were in a table in the center of the room and could not hear each other very well so try for something next to a window or wall of possible.

Passionfish was great as normal. Glad to see they updated the menu with new items. It was great to get out. The tables are still spaced wider than normal and the staff was all masked up. We wore masks to and from the table but not while dining. It's always great place.

Our anniversary was made special due to our fine service, and complimentary champagne and dessert. People enjoying an after work drink were in a separate area and so their talking was not obtrusive.

When my mom comes to town we always head here for the curry, and there’s just so much to love about their menu. Our waiter last evening was very pleasant which added to the experience. My brother ordered the special - a very delicious pork chop. And for desert we were treated to their amazing churros. It was such a lovely meal and experience.

The food was great and the sushi and tartar were awesome! The drinks were pretty neat and everyone was friendly. They did lower the lighting around 7pm which was a little annoying when trying to read. Still, nice open room and not too loud for being pretty busy. Good for a date or a group of friends to share dinner at.
