I have eaten in many, many restaurants here in the US and in Europe. This is one of the very best! The choices are so original -- and tasty! The ambiance, service, and meal give value for the price. But, truly, it is the originality of the menu that makes the meal(s). This is a fine restaurant.

Had the grilled swordfish special which was awesome because it came with a side and delicious chocolate mousse dessert. During the week I was here for training this was by far the best restaurant I visited. The server was awesome!

I joined a few of my coworkers for a "work" dinner last night at PassionFish. I have only been a few times for lunch and the food was very good, however I got to try some new stuff this go-around. Sushi - the PassionFish roll is really good. They also had a sashimi special consisting of tuna, salmon, and a... More

We were looking for a restaurant that we hadn't tried in Reston Town Center, so this is what I picked. There were 5 of us dining and I must admit, I wished I had spent more time looking at the prices - ouch! HOWEVER, I love to eat out and I consider myself pretty picky...Passionfish is one of the better... More

Passion fish started serving brunch last weekend for the first time and it's phenomenal. They are open for brunch Saturday and Sunday 11-2. It's a pretty good deal, $19 for two courses and $2 mimosas/bloody marys or you can order a la carte. Be forewarned that the "starter" course is pretty large, almost like another whole entree, so go hungry.... More

I had a chance last week while in DC to eat at Passion Fish for Christmas Eve dinner. The restaurant is beautiful. The service is impeccable. The food is GREAT!!!! While my family all had the seafood, I had a steak. It was the most tender, flavorful, melt in your mouth steak I have ever had. The accompanying asparagus was... More

This place was a great fusion restaurant. While seafood is seafood, and you expect a restaurant like this to prepare the food well, there was a wide variety of flavor options. I would say that I didnt give it a 5 star rating probably because of the table size. When you pay $65 or so per person for a meal,... More

If you're a lover of sushi, you will know how good it is. If you're a first timer and unsure. This is the place to go. And you will be hooked. Pricing but worth it! Enjoy.

Love the restaurant and absolutely great service. The staff is very polite and very well-trained. Love the seafood dishes, most of the Asian fusion seafood dishes are just flat-out amazing. It's great coming here with family or friends for a nice event.
