“Hooked Seafood is a keeper”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We sat outside on a beautiful night. One side of the patio was tables, while the other had a bar and bean bag toss setup which seemed a bit out of place. We started with Jalapeño Popper roll, which was interesting. Spicy, but not tradtionally japanese flavor because of the jalepeno. I had the Miso-glazed Sea Bass, which was very nice. Not at all fishy, and cooked just right. The glaze was flavorful but not overpowering. My date had the Wasabi-crusted Ahi Tuna, which was really good. It came on a hot rock, so she could cook it as much as she wanted. Personally, I would have taken it off as soon as it got to the table, but she cooked it to just the amount she wanted. It was sushi-grade tuna with no stringiness or sinew. Very tender and moist.

Overall, a pretty decent beer and wine selection. Much improved from when we were there for our first date over a year ago..

We'll definitey be back.

“over-rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

i read good reviews of Hooked. Been there twice --- both times were a let down. over priced drinks. food okay not great. service good. location horrible. spend your money somewhere else. if want seafood, drive extra 20 mins to Passion Fish in Reston, or 40 mins to Black Salt.

“Gnats everywhere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We had cocktails, ordered a bottle of wine, had some sushi and apps but ultimately had to leave bc the gnats were quite disgusting. We moved table hoping that would help but the gnats seemed to be everwhere. I think the issue was there was a banquet going on outside and management let the doors open, terrible idea. When we informed them we'd be paying our bill and not enjoying the full dinner bc of the plethora of gnats they did nothing but offer an apology, and by "they" I mean our waitress, I guess she was too scared to tell management.

The sad part is the sushi was pretty darn good! I had toro, tuna, octopus and escolar.

“Getting better!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Food has always been good, but the service has been so terrible that we stopped going for a long time. They seem to have been responding to negative comments about their service when we tried it again recently.

“Not as good as reviews”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Nice hostess met us, but waiter was unfriendly, and slow to bring water, and brought salad after entree. Decent happy hour and drinks. The recommended dishes on the menu were mostly deep fried tempura. The crispy shrimp was unbelievably greasy. You had to remove the coating to eat. Both the calamari and crispy shrimp came with mayonaise based sauces, which really made it more rich. Why not marinara or asian sauce with calamari, and a chili lemongrass with shrimp. Caesar salad was very good. Desserts were disappointing as well. Cheesecake was brown on the edges and clearly old. Cookies a la mode were not a la mode. 2 cookies on one plate and a ball of ice cream on another. Why call it a la mode. The specialty rolls were hit or miss. The PGA roll was very good but couldn't taste the tempura flakes, which would have given it a nice crunch. Thee tuna draped on top was very warm, which seemed unusual.
An attractive dining area, but definitely not worth going back.
