    Outstanding meal in every way. We had the calamari to start, which was quite light compared to most places and surprisingly spicy. For entrees, we had halibut and scallops both of which were perfect.

    Passionfish is our “go-to” whenever we are in Pacific Grove. We especially like that they only use sustainably sourced fish 🐠 and honor the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s suggestions for same. The fish is always delicious and artfully prepared. First we started with the amazing buttermilk biscuit and black-bean goat cheese fritters (enough for the two of us to share.) We shared a salad and then chose Albacore Tuna and Alaskan Halibut for our entrees. Both delicious! Our server was friendly and attentive, but not intrusive. Highly recommend this restaurant, although almost want to keep it our own little secret.

    cold atmosphere, the restaurant was mostly empty. Waiters were nice. Treated us to ice cream for our anniversary. The mussels I ordered came with linguini - I thought the linguini was included to enhance the price more than the dish. It was very bland. I would have liked a grilled bread instead. The halibut dish with bean "cassoulet" (mashed beans) was skimpy, but costly. We won't come again.
