We eat at PassionFish a lot because it is so good. This was our first Sunday Brunch experience. Chef Chris Smith has some very tasty dishes on the menu. My wife started with a vegetable crudité which could have served a table of four. She...More

Taken here as a celebration and was amazed at the quality of the dishes whether it was my shrimp cocktail, my beet salad, the halibut main course and chocolate dessert. Everything was well seasoned with perfect spices.

We had a Seafood gumbo and shrimp and grits... both plates were spicy and delicious. I had a California roll too, that was very fresh!

They have lots of great dishes. It is rare if their service isn't top notch. 90% of the time it is top notch while the other 10% is average. I've never experienced bad service there. The food, wine, atmosphere, it is an exceptional restaurant.

I like PassionFish. It has good food and a lively bar scene. The food is good, but it is not as good as the prices would indicate. Haven't been in a while due to the changes at Reston Town Center where it is located. Expensive...More

PassionFish is a great name for this seafood-centric restaurant, which features spacious interior, great menu and excellent service.

Took my brother, who is a foodie from CA to PassionFish on his last night on the east coast. I ordered my favorite meal for him. We both had the whole flounder. My husband had the sea bass (which is good but doesn't compare). We...More

Nine of us decided to try Passion Fish for dinner and the meal started out better than it ended. The Carrot Ginger Lobster Bisqué was velvety and delicious - a perfect first course. The Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes with lemon beurre blanc sauce and grilled...More
