I went with a group of four to passionfish last night. Wow, great drinks, great service, great food! This is a very good, solid, returnable restaurant. However, all these things don't come cheaply. Drinks $10-14, entree's $28-45. We went a little over the top and...More

Over-rated, over-priced, I would take Jackson's any day over this restaurant. For the prices they charge there are better places to go--with more atmosphere. Would not return.

We enjoyed our dinner at PassionFish in Reston Va. Food was great, service was excellent and choice of menu is great. Deserts were delicious. They have catered for our gluten and dairy free special requirements well.

I've eaten here several times and I have always enjoyed good food in an elegant setting. Service is also good -- very attentive.

There is nothing more unsatisfying than a over-hyped and over-rated restaurant. I've always held my critique for a restaurant to at least two if not three visits just be sure. One visit can be an anomaly. Two a mistake. But thee leaves little doubt. Passion...More

My lovely bride and I have been here a number of times. The bar area is small and very busy; in large part due to the great bartenders, excellent service, and great Happy Hour bar menu. They are making our drinks when they see us...More

I've now had three meals at Passion Fish (two dinners and a lunch), all of them quite good. Service is excellent, especially for a solo diner (as we are sometimes the "forgotten" table), and the menu offers well and imaginatively prepared fresh fish. Really, you...More

Good food but pricey. The fish was fresh but I would categorize this as date night / special occasion type restaurant.

The place is really expensive and the quality of the food does not live up to the price. I love seafood... but this place does not server really good seafood. It is ok at best, and when you factor in the $30+ for an entree,...More

Nice, light, open restaurant - and sidewalk tables. Was there just for a cocktail and appetizers - not a full meal - and did not fully explore the menu. Prices seemed reasonable for mid-tier chair restaurant fare. Oysters on the half shell tasted fresh and...More

We were in casual travel attire for lunch. Hubby was in shorts and t-shirt. Felt slightly underdressed (my own perception) as most other patrons were in business clothes and were there during weekday lunch time. I think... More
