Always delicious, always fresh. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and explained things in beautiful word pictures that truly helped guide our ordering choices. PLEASE - Do yourself a favor...get a $3 biscuit for yourself. You could share it, but you will be a little sad you did afterward. Life changing.

Scallops (both as an appetizer and main dish) were fantastic! Cooked to perfection and beautifully sauced and seasoned, all the sides were delicious as well. The Duck was on the dry side, but still a great dish.

Another lovely experience at Passionfish! It was our anniversary that was noted on our daily menus. Dishes was extraordinary of the trout and trajine, asparagus fries are so good capped off with Roquefort ice cream. Thank you for a lovely evening.


The service was very lackluster. It took 25 minutes for someone to take our order. When we finally got someone's attention, the waitress was unfriendly and unrepentant about ignoring us. She stared at us and glared at us for having to take our order. to top it all off it turns out that she was the manager. The first appetizer arrived 45 minutes after we were seated. Never again.


Friendly, attentive waiters.Food quite good, and fine for the USA!Perfect for people who like

Absolutely incredible dinner for our anniversary. Staff were kind and helpful in navigating menu items and pairing with wines. I have a gluten allergy and the waitress was knowledgeable and kindness.


Service was a little slow. Portion sizes were good and prices were fair. Overall the dining experience was good however I was not overly impressed with the food. Next time in PG we will probably try Wild Fish albeit more expensive per dish.


The food was innovative, healthy and most important of all delicious. The wine list was extensive and reasonably priced. The service was attentive, but not overbearing. I will be going back soon again.

A great restaurant for group dinners with several semi-private areas. I've been there multiple times with the same group over many years. The server made suggestions and was happy to customizeMenu items.Dietary restrictions: Easy to customize to accommodate dietary issues.

This was a perfect spot for my mom's birthday dinner after spending the day at the aquarium and beach. We appreciated that the restaurant sourced seafood sustainably and the wines were indeed reasonably priced. In fact all of it felt well-priced to us coming from SF. The service was excellent, we had Paola and they were so kind to my parents' requests for a more simple dish than was on the menu. Really loved Passionfish and we will definitely be back.

Spent a day in Monterey and for dinner my daughter made a reservation at this place. The place was quite tight but service was very good. We ordered Fried Calamari, Beet salad, and the warm Brussels sprouts for starters. For our entrees we had duck, lamb, sea scallops, grilled shrimps, and tuna. All were delightfully delectable.

Love this place for a long time now. We live north of San Francisco but eat there at least once a year in


The food was super delicious except of the Mud Ice Cream cake that was a disappointment. Our waitress was very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. We'll be definitely back!
