Mediocre food at a high price. Thai curry pot consisted of a sweet curry with very little lobster meat or lobster flavor. Surf and Turf was average. Martini had to be redone because I was told they did not use vermouth (?) Brussels sprouts and and snap peas were good. Can't even remember what we had for dessert. Service was attentive but unfortunately we won't be back.

Had the weekly surf and turf special.... lackluster and the waiter did not advise limited selection for dessert option until it was already ordered. Manager very charming and made things right...but overcooked lobster still not nice. Go for regular menu items and you'll get better fare!

The food and service at Passion Fish are always exceptional. We sat outside, which is a little quieter. It is expensive but worth every penny.

The service was attentive. We ordered few appetizer, one of it was grilled octopus - perfectly cooked, which were outstanding. And the entree is superb! we ordered gumbo, branzino, sea bass, and crab cake. We really enjoyed our dinner. This is the best seafood restaurant in VA for sure! We are going back.

Tempura shrimp appetizer was basically sushi with one shrimp split when I expected real shrimp tempura. Cream Brûlée’s was served cold and soggy. No crunch on top - appeared to have been made in advance and left in a fridge. Not good at all.

Crab cakes and steak were good however. For the money, more attention needs to be paid to details.

Everything we had was excellent. Fortunately, it was a half price night saving us over $50. Would it be worth it at the full price? Maybe for a splurge on top notch seafood.

First, the food was delicious , as always. I was with another family, so we were at two tables (side by side). I don't think that the service was what I have come to expect from PF. When I have been in the past, it's been with a couple that dines at your restaurant ALL THE TIME. So , they're known by name and I would imagine that that explains the exceptional service.
This visit, I felt like our server was just plain ole annoyed. I noticed it, and my son, who was at the other table, mentioned something about " that waitress really didn't like me". So, I guess it wasn't just me. Anyway, the food was enjoyed by all, so that was a win.

I mentioned that it was our anniversary at the time I made our reservation, we were very pleased to see our anniversary noted on our menu, we received a glass of champagne for celebration as well as the menu was a momento of our special evening. We've been coming here for the last 5 years to celebrate our anniversary, Passion Fish is known for excellent service and delicious food!

Passion fish was wonderful as usual. We love the complimentary seafood spread and, if requested, they will provide crostini instead of the usual rolls to go with it. Also love the ceviche and lobster roll. Service was excellent. My husband requested extra cilantro and no corn on his ceviche. No problem. When the coffee after lunch was lukewarm (they were having trouble with their downstairs coffeemaker), our waitress went upstairs and made a new pot.

We chose to celebrate our anniversary at PassionFish and it was a great choice. From the moment we entered- every moment was special. We were given a lovely table, a congratulatory note at the top of the menu and a lovely appertif. Our server was informative, helpful & fun. The food was exceptional. Oysters, soft shell crab & scallops. Just perfect. We had a wonderful celebration and we will be returning very soon.

The food here is amazing. This time our waiter seemed a little shy, but he warmed up near the end. There was a family with an unruly child sitting really close to our corner booth, but that can't always be helped. My husband was quite pleased with his father's day dinner!

Love PassionFish for lunch, Father's Day brunch was a very MEH experience. I saw our waitress make a comment to another server after taking our order when I asked if they had "normal" bacon versus Canadian bacon and this put a bad taste in my mouth. My champagne glass reeked of fish as if it had shrimp cocktail stored in it over night. Crab cakes were outstanding. I appreciate the accommodations they try to make for small children and the play packs available. The waffles were very basic when received for kids, we thought it may be children's only but chicken and waffles had same lack luster at home style bisquik waffle. Food was just ok to be priced so high.

This restaurant is one of our favorites. While the menu could use some new items, the specials are always great. My wife always orders the crispy flounder but our server mention soft shell carbs she quickly changed her mind. Both our meals were superior. If you've never been to Passion Fish, you should give it a try.

There is nothing wrong with PassionFish, but at the price point where it resides, it just seems like there are better options. The food is certainly tasty and somewhat creative in terms of the taste combinations they have. Our server was very personable and knew the menu and wine list quite well. Otherwise, the place didn't really rise far above "meh" for me.
