    Always an excellent meal at PassionFish! The food is excellent as is the service. It is truly our go-to restaurant for all occasions big and small. My teen daughter was celebrating her birthday and it was her restaurant of choice! We are never disappointed.

    I didn’t realize when booking that it was fairly pricey. Having said that the service was great and the food was excellent. The noise level was somewhat high but eventually we got used to it and we could hear each other fine.

    We have been to PassionFish many times -it is one of our favorites but last night's dinner was very disappointing. The bread turned out to be 4 very thindry slices of a baguette in the bottom of a bread basket that disintegrated when you tried to break it. Later when the waiter came to clear the "bread" we complained and he said (too late) that he could bring warm bread-why wasn't it not brought in the first place? As in the past. I had the halibut which was dry and firm-not flaky or freah like previous I have had there. I had questioned the waiter about the vegetable that had always come with the halibut asking to substitute something else because previously I felt it was too spicy-he said no it was not -it was the sauce on it so I said hold the sauce--but it was the same old too spicy side!! Wife's swordfish was however tasty as well as the sweet potato fries. Overall still very disappointing!

    My wife and I went for our 27th anniversary. Dare to say everything was perfect. Mini me seafood tower was amazing. Whole branzino great. Red Curry lobster, one of the best things we’ve ever eaten. Brussels sprouts were not an afterthought, they were A+. As a nice touch we were treated to dessert (chocolate bomb) with some sparkling wine, which was much appreciated. And the best part was Matt, our server. A wonderful night all around.

    Dining at PassionFish is always a highlight of my day. This was no exception. Excellent service, the sushi, soup and entree, beet salad were all excellent. The only disappointment was the Mac ‘n’ Jack. It has always been one of our favorite sides, but this time it was dry and bland. Seems they left out most of the creamy cheese that is usually in it. Maybe the price of cheese has gone up and they cut back, but it was sad. Still, we will continue to go back because it is the best sushi and seafood in Reston Town Center!

    Had an amazing time getting seated in the happy hour dining area on a saturday night. The ambiance was nice, and I really liked that it wasnt too loud so that me and my wife could enjoy our conversation without yelling. The happy hour menu is excellent and a great value, especially the drinks! We got some margaritas and some moscow mules, both of which were delicious and had the appropriate amount of spirits within. We had a few nibbles at the happy hour food menu, and then dove into the main menu, deciding on fresh oysters and the sushi tower. Both were simply delicious! The nigiri was the highlight of my dinner. Staff was on point, friendly and were always at the table when I wanted them, and never bothering when we were deep in our meals. Looking forward to coming back soon and trying some cooked fish!

    The food and atmosphere were both fine. Unfortunately, the service was lacking - it took over 30 minutes just to find someone to take our orders, we consistently had to refill our own drinks, and there was a 10 minute wait to get the check returned after providing a credit card so we could sign a copy and leave. Perhaps not a big issue in general, but for a business lunch during the work week it was a poor experience.
