Taken here as a celebration and was amazed at the quality of the dishes whether it was my shrimp cocktail, my beet salad, the halibut main course and chocolate dessert. Everything was well seasoned with perfect spices.

We had a Seafood gumbo and shrimp and grits... both plates were spicy and delicious. I had a California roll too, that was very fresh!

They have lots of great dishes. It is rare if their service isn't top notch. 90% of the time it is top notch while the other 10% is average. I've never experienced bad service there. The food, wine, atmosphere, it is an exceptional restaurant.

Nine of us decided to try Passion Fish for dinner and the meal started out better than it ended. The Carrot Ginger Lobster Bisqué was velvety and delicious - a perfect first course. The Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes with lemon beurre blanc sauce and grilled...More

We were in casual travel attire for lunch. Hubby was in shorts and t-shirt. Felt slightly underdressed (my own perception) as most other patrons were in business clothes and were there during weekday lunch time. I think... More
