This was our first time to Passion Fish. Our waiter was pretty distracted and seemed to forget about us often. The 50% off a bottle of wine on Sundays is nice but the food wasn't anything to write home about. It was OK but not great. For the quality/quantity, it was definitely overpriced. I was disappointed in the scallops I ordered - a relatively small portion and teeny tiny bay scallops for in the $30s (don't remember the exact price). I'm not super inclined to give it another shot and would look to Jackson's or Coopers Hawk before opting to come back to Passion Fish next time out.

The food was excellent as was the service. The servings were very large - had to get a doggy bag. We would eat there more often were it not for the parking fiasco.

Our experience was typical of those in the Passion Food group: great service, consistently excellent food, and a delightful ambience. At PassionFish the seafood is impeccably fresh, specialities like the gumbo are true to their roots, and service is professional and attentive, and the group’s careful management is obvious.

I was very disappointed this time. I have had good experiences in the past, but the Lobster and butternut soup was bland and the Cioppino was not great and didn't have much seafood or variety. The shrimp in it was not great either.

Continues to be the best, most consistent restaurant in Reston.

Superb, well-trained wait staff. - a rarity these days.

Also rare, a restaurant that is quiet enough to actually have a normal conversation with your table mates.

Passionfish shines in a bright corner of Reston Town Center...quality, variety and consistency...there's a formula to survive the parking experiment gone awry.

Passionfish is my favorite restaurant in the Reston area. Their gumbo is excellent from the special presentation in a lovely cast iron "skillet dish" through the wonderful blend of flavors in the rue with generous, large pieces of fresh seafood. I used to live in New Orleans and Passionfish gumbo equals any I ever had down there. The wine list is excellent. The atmosphere is delightful with white linen tablecloths everywhere, lots of space between tables, and surroundings that permit quiet conversation. The restaurant can be full/busy but it always feels relaxed and a wonderful place to have an intimate conversation with a special person or small group over great food. No rushing diners to hurry and vacate the table for the next customer at this fine restaurant.
The service is top drawer, ...attentive, pleasant, and knowledgeable. They know how to provide a great dining experience.
Gerard is first rate.
Passionfish is always a must whenever I visit the Reston area.

Excellent food, service by our waiter Kenny was fabulous! I was very specific about being seated away from the bar and noisy areas in my online reservation.
After getting there, the hostess seated us right in the middle of the bullpen which was terrible -- too many people and noisy. However, I asked to be moved and they complied. Just wish my request for a special location had been actually read as this was a 28 year anniversary and I should not have had to point this out to the hostess since I was very specific in my reservation notes. Lastly, busboys worked hard and were very professional.

I was told Salmon would be prepared medium rare at recommendation of chef - it came out well-done. A side dish came out when we were done eating. It took a long time to clear the table. Been coming here for 8 years and it’s going down progressively over the last 3-4 years. Sad. It’s an RTC icon that is getting left behind.

Excellent Seafood and Service. I wanted a quiet Dinner to spend time with my Son who was visiting Washington D.C. on Business.

He travels a lot and loves good restaurant. This was a perfect choice. Service and food were excellent. No rush to leave.

I go to Reston often and Passion Fish is my favorite Restaurant.

Had eaten here before several times before and it was very good. I don’t know if they changed cooks but it was terrible very bland crab cakes and seafood stew was not fresh either. Won’t be going again considering bland food and prices.

Our meal was very good. All the dishes were fresh and nicely presented. We started with fried clams, which were nice and crispy and not at all greasy. Others had the crab and shrimp spring rolls, which were small and did not taste overtly of crab or shrimp, but they were good. The mains were very nice. A special of cod was perfectly cooked. Our friend had special dietary restrictions, and the kitchen had no problem preparing the special item. Our service was fine, not overly intrusive. The one issue I had was that the area of the restaurant where we were seated, which was in the back with the lower ceiling, had a fishy smell. When we first sat down it was quite pronounced, but the longer we were there, it became less of an issue. The meal overall was very good.
