The flavors here never disappoint. I just wish their loyalty program was more user friendly. Even with a reservation, it isn't automatically added and there is limited/no online access to manage the account.

It was my wife and my first real date out dining since the pandemic. We dined a bit earlier than normal. As a result, we thoroughly enjoyed everything about our dining experience.

Very nice restaurant. Food was very good and well prepared. Server seemed to take an extra long time seeing to us between courses, but it may be because of COVID measures. Recommend this restaurant, especially if you like seafood with an Asian flavor.

I took my husband here to surprise him . We have never been here before. We were very happy with the food. We especially loved the crab and Mac. We ordered one for the road! We got the complimentary bread which was really good. Then as an app we got raw oysters that were very tasty. I ordered the gumbo and the Mac and cheese and the mashed potatoes. My husband ordered something else I can’t recall. But we both loved Everything. The gumbo was very good. The mashed potatoes was very tasty. My husband was practically licking the bowl. Highly recommended. We will be back. .

Great as always. Soft shell crab already in the menu - really meaty. Charbroiled oysters were perfectly grilled.

Still not willing to eat indoors. The patio is a good alternative. It is, of course, noisy but then you get to see all the people (a lot less than in the past) passing by. The seafood is stunningly good. The octopus appetizer is amazing.

Excellent place for grilled fish and seafood. Sides are served a la carte to complement your meal. The menu consists primarily of fish and fish dishes such as sushi, seafood bisque I highly recommend the artic char and sea bass as entrees and the sushi rolls and oyster are fresh and excellent quality.

They sat a group of at least six to eight folks next to our table (with some distance) but there were tons of other tables further apart that would have made more sense. Given the pandemic I think that would have been appropriate.

PassionFish is the best for seafood in the area, period. But everything else from drinks to service to salads to chef specials is also invariably superior. This is a spectacular place for a special dinner or lunch. The interior decor is also quite notable. One of the very best places in Northern Virginia.

It was a great evening catching up with friends. The weather was warm enough to be seated on the patio with ample social distancing between tables. Our server, Maria, was very personable and attentive and the food was customarily on point.

Such a great choice for amazingly prepared seafood. When there is only...count’em...ONE beef selection on the menu...you know the water procured protein is going to be sensational! Passionfish has never disappointed.

Started with Chesapeake Oysters and I opted for scallops with thick bacon and a sauce that was terrific. Soul Mate did the Black Bass with a pepper red sauce on the side. Very generous portions. Claudia was spot on with suggestions and water refills. Will return often.

Wonderful dining experience by Chef Jeff, Chef Chris and the entire tram of the superb Passionfish. Greeted warmly by hosts. Taken to our socially distanced table, served by a wonderful and knowledgeable server the freshest sushi and fish to all 6 of us. We will be back, as always, and bravo to the whole team in a great dining experience! 👍🍾👌👏

It is great to get back to dining out in a safe environment. I have always enjoyed this restaurant, and am thankful they survived the roughest times and upped their game. I love their creative ideas with food. The ceviche and anything with octopus are generally my go-to favorites. On this last time, we were with friends who don't eat much seafood, and they went out of their way to accommodate them.

I highly recommend this restaurant. It is one of our favorites in the area. It’s very elegant, white linen, but slightly modern. The food is amazing but very expensive. Dinner and drinks for four people costs about $300.
