We ordered the Fried Morro Bay Oysters, dungeness crab and avocado salad, halibut and bread pudding. Food was delicious - love how the star of the dish blends with the side dishes.

We had a delicious meal - again - at Passionfish last night. The crab and avacado salad is wonderful as were the heirloom tomatoes. The entrees were likewise terrific. Even better is the wine list, with a stunning selection of half bottles, so we could get half of white and half of red. The server knew everything about both the menu and the wines, and was helpful when asked but not intrusive. A very nice night out.

Very interesting and creative dishes. The scallops and tomato/beet salad were delicious. Nice list of wines in half bottle portions. Storybook Mountain Zinfandel was great.

Great place for fresh fish! Their selection of wines by the glass could be better, but the food was really good.

At the first look, the menu looked great. The starter was very tasty, but then my rockfish turned out having no taste at all, I tried the salmon from my sister's entree but I didn't like it either It was disappointing considering the price we paid, or maybe it was just me ordering the only bad meal on the menu. It was not terrible, but it isn't worth the price. As a European, I also found it weird they didn't have espresso coffees. The tables were also very close from one another
