Many friends love this place, but having been 3 times, I’ve never walked away with anything other than, “yeah, it’s fine.” I love seafood, but something about the untenured servers and the crispy/unfriendly hosts/hostesses, and the food that’s unmemorable...I just can’t and no longer get...More

This was a family brunch. Food was good although the main entree “harbour eggs” was not as good as previous times. There was barely any bernaise sauce and the lobster was dried. They removed the bread as we were starting to eat. Service was alright....More

We had an outstanding waiter but someone messed up our orders brought all the wrong food at the wrong time. The food was pretty awful. Reston is now full of over priced really average places

Menus are excellent and they prepare fish as it is meant to be. All dishes we had were tops. The wine offerings are good but our waiter was not really prepared for deeper level of discernment. I found the quality fine though a little "pricey".

I was so angry to spend hours deciding where to eat today since restaurant Week is nearing an end. I checked many menus. I finally decided in Passion Fish in Reston. I checked their website. It gave the menu for lunch and dinner. We drove...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
