We were really disappointed with the food. It is really expensive and either lacked taste or was a poor quality size.

First, thank you so much for your honest feedback about your experience that evening. You didn't have to leave a review but because you did, it allows us the feedback we need in order to improve and fine tune your dining experience. However it deeply saddens me that you were celebrating an anniversary from what i can see in the notes and did not enjoy the selections served that evening. From what I can see you had the tenderloin entree and the crab cakes as your main course. I have passed along your review of the food to the chef and we will take a look at ways we can possibly improve on these selections. The tenderloin is something new we are trying since reopening and I've discussed with kitchen staff to be aware of temperatures/ overcooking. Given the current global climate of the seafood industry, we try our best to maintain a realistic price point for our guests while providing a fresh product delivered daily. Accompanied with that, pertaining to our crab cakes specifically, we offer two 4 ounce cakes (8 ounces) of crab meat pan seared, with just a touch of rice flour, mayonnaise, lemon juice and old bay as a bond agent to hold things together so with each bite, you may enjoy primarily just crab meat. I have also discussed with servers and staff about the importance of checking to see if guests are enjoying their selections in real time so may fix issues such as this before your experience is complete and unresolved. Again, I am deeply saddened by your experience and wish very much for another opportunity to provide you with the service, food and overall hospitality that has made PassionFish Reston a premier dining destination for over a decade. I hope these words find you and your family safe and in good health - PassionFish Management

One of my favorite restaurants in Reston Town Center. Food is always outstanding. Their Passion Fish Sushi roll is fantastic. This trip I tried the Soft Shell crab salad and it was as expected...excellent!

Passion Fish has always been a reliable go-to restaurant for me and my family. The food and service have always been outstanding. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case this time, but I attribute that to Covid. The server was outstanding, their cleanliness and ways of dealing with Covid also outstanding, but food was mediocre. Specifically, the Thai Lobster dish was saturated in sauce, the rice was hard, and there was hardly any lobster in the dish. Overall thumbs down. My husband had the flounder, good, but with so much spicy sauce already applied, practically inedible. They also need to work on their Rose selections. They only have one and it’s not good.

Thank you for being a longtime guests with us and thank you for your honest feedback. The key to success in the restaurant business is consistency and we strive to stay consistent every single day but it seems we fail short of this on your last visit. I have reviewed these dishes with the chef on duty that evening as well as encouraged servers to really engage our guests, a few bites into their meal, to ensure they are enjoying the selections so we may make swift changes, in real time, to maintain your confidence and satisfaction in our food and service. Again, thank you for this feedback and please stay safe until we see you again.

Made a reservation for outdoor seating but still had to wait 30 minutes. What’s the point of a reservation?
Food and service were good otherwise. Tables could be a little more distanced.

The food and service were excellent. They are distancing, offering hand sanitizer when you are seated, and following other protocols. They are NOT, however, having customers wear masks as they walk through the seating area even though they say that is one of their protocols.

Our first time back since early March. What a great experience. The food was absolutely amazing. The service was exceptional.

Passion Fish has gone above and beyond to make us comfortable eating there while we are in Phase 2 of the pandemic recovery.

Kudos to Eduardo and staff.

Looking forward to returning soon!

Food quality was not what i expected. All four dishes were either bit salty or too spicy. Service was mediocre. 7 dollars for 7 asparaguses for side dish was a bit pricy as nothing was done except heating up asparaguses. Seafood tasted fresh. Calamari was not exciting, in fact too salty. Not worth the price, i thought.

Service was excellent as were the drinks. Food was just ok which was disappointing because normally the food is excellent. Lobster gazpacho was great and the soft shell crabs were good, but the halibut special had no flavor and was a little slimy.
We did appreciate how great the service was and everything was super clean in this covid world.

I am so glad that Passionfish of Reston is open again. The food was delicious. The staff was really great. As soon as you arrive they were there to greet us with a hearty "Welcome Back!!! They offered hand sanitizer, if you wanted it. I was very impressed with the the way they followed all the health guidelines.

I will definitely go back, and hopefully we will see the bar open for happy hour again in the near future.

PASSION FISH is one of the great joys of human life. The food is beautiful, fresh, healthful & interesting... the staff is WONDERFUL... from the concierges to the bartenders to the bus boys to the wait staff to the managers... they are friendly, professional, often hilarious and fun to hang out with, and caring. I've never had a negative experience there on any level, and I've been quite a bit! Please, Passion Fish, never leave us. We love you.

Finally got to try this excellent restaurant after hearing so many good things. Exceeded expectations and during phase 1 pandemic everything was done excellent from the service to the food to the facilities use plan. Will come back when phase 2 and a return to normal happens to try more. Had the ceviche, and two rolls and all were some of the best I’ve had in This area.

It was great to be able to dine outside after a long stretch cooped up in the house. The staff were warm and courteous and the food was very good. Seemed pricey for what we ordered, but if that's a temporary situation to help cover costs of operating while at reduced capacity, I'm fine with it.

The evening started off so well because we had a fabulous waiter. He was funny, informative, and just very nice. He knew we were celebrating a birthday and made a kind acknowledgement of it. His service was impeccable. And it goes without saying that the food was outstanding. I think my husband left less than a molecule of his halibut on his plate, and my son eviscerated his glorious Thai-flavored flounder. And my trout was sweet, light, and oh so good. The restaurant comped my husband a lovely creme brulee, which was not expected. We love Passion Fish, and this visit once again reinforced why it's the first place we think of to celebrate special moments.
