Chef Chris Smith has put his stamp on this excellent seafood restaurant and it shows just what a talent he is. We had a divine crab meat and lobster dish that was as good as any main course we have eaten, ever. He also prepared...More

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

When the generous raw bar greets you when being led to your table, you instinctively want to order oysters, lump crab, shrimp - and the Big Daddy beckons! This is actually a nod to their banquet department. My mom was turning 80 in late December...More

I come here for brunch almost every Sunday, and a few times a month for dinner. The food is always very good, the service is professional and the setting is lively but elegant. Great spot for a date, friendly get together, business meal or solo...More

We had great service. We were seated promptly with a reservation. It’s a little loud at times but not bad. My dinner was delicious.

This, to me, is the class of Reston Town Center. The space itself and its furnishings bespeak elegance; not formal, but not all that casual. The service has been flawless on almost all my visits, and the food... fresh, fresh, fresh, excellently prepared and beautifully...More

Had a nice lunch, menu was interesting, portions could have been a bit bigger but it was excellent. Next up is trying it for dinner.

I've been a few times. My friends like it. My dad and I think it's overrated. Service has been average to below average (slow). Some food I had was super heavy in spice (saffron) and light in other flavor. I've tried several dishes and honestly...More
