    Don't hesitate to book an event at PassionFish Reston. Kathryn will make sure your event is wonderful. She was such a pleasure to work with, helpful and prompt in answering all questions. I had small flower arrangements delivered for the tables, and I dropped off a box of table decorations early in the day. Kathryn and her staff set them up and made the room look wonderful. I just had to show up and enjoy the evening with our family and friends. We had our rehearsal dinner on the Balcony room and it was lovely. I was worried about some restaurant noise, but it was perfect. You never knew others were in the restaurant downstairs. All the guests just raved about the delicious food and the outstanding service. Many stayed at the hotel in Reston Town Center and they could walk back to their room, and there is also a parking garage right across the street from Passion Fish. We had about 50 people and the balcony room was more than enough room to hold a cocktail hour, then seated dinner. Worth every penny, wonderful evening. Thanks to PassionFish Reston for making the Rehearsal Dinner so special, and a wonderful start to my son's wedding weekend.

    We were very happy with Passion Fish and would recommend them to anyone looking to have an event there! We had our rehearsal dinner in the private room the night before our wedding. We also opted to have a small cocktail hour before the dinner in the back of the dinning room. Our wedding was over 2 months ago and we are still getting compliments about their food. We had a slight issue with our hotel shuttle and ended up being a little late for the event, but the restaurant very accommodating and allowed us to extend the time we stayed in the room. Staff was very friendly, ambiance was great, and the food was outstanding (the Surf & Turf was out of this world)!

    My father-in-law wanted to extend invitations for the rehearsal dinner to immediate family beyond just the wedding party, which meant a total of 72 people. PassionFish was not only a gorgeous site, but really had that separation from the main restaurant we were looking for. Not to mention, it was really a great value at less than $60 per head with a 3 hour open bar. From the get go, our coordinator Kathryn was so helpful, responsive, and up front. She never tried to bend the truth to sell us on the space, she would give it to you straight, which is not common in the wedding world. Unfortunately, she was unable to be there day of, but she seamlessly transitioned us to the day off manager who was also a gem. We had a very minor snafoo with the table numbers, but it was a great ice breaker and they handled it very professionally. The food was always cooked perfectly, served quickly, and no one ever had to wait for a drink. I would highly recommend PassionFish!
