Attentive, professional service, delicious food! Best dinner we had in Monterey/Pacific Grove.


Fabulous seafood, inventive flavors, and extensive wine list!


This is at least our 4th if not more, visit to the restaurant. Our wait staff was very nice and attentive. We ate outdoor in the cold. Even the heaters didn’t feel warm enough. So dress warmly if the weather is cool. We were both disappointed with the food during this visit and I was so looking forward to it since our last visit about 1.5 yrs ago. First order, we each got a biscuit which was overly crunchy on the outside and we both thought it tasted like they were reheated and they arrived with no butter nor jam. Hubby liked his beet salad and I really like the fried calamari. We were not so happy with our entrees of Arctic Char and Mahi Mahi. The fishes were a tad too dry. I didn’t like the sauce which coated the sugar cube sized potatoes and risotto (tasted bland) because it was a spicy sauce and was too hot for my taste. Hubby thought the risotto and spinach with his entree was bland too. As much as I liked this restaurant from past years, it’s no longer the same at this visit. Not sure we will return on a future visit to the area.


Change your menu and we’ll come more often - you are our favorite restaurant on the Penninsula!

Wonderful restaurant! Great food and service.


Lovely and tasteful interiors, attentive, personable waiter, food excellent and artfully served, great wine recommendation.


Passionfish was great! The food was delicious and I love that it's all sustainably-sourced. And the wine was affordable.


Delicious and nice atmosphere


The plexiglass partitions reduce air circulation inside the restaurant and probably aren't a good way to prevent the Delta Variant spreading indoors. But I'm no engineer.


Sonya was great!


Was a really nice place and exactly as expected. Personal preference would’ve been for all servers/hosts to be wearing masks but know it’s not currently a requirement so didn’t take off for that. Service was nice and helpful, food overall was tasty - husband’s mahi was surprisingly a bit dry, but everything else was great.


Wonderful! Fresh, sustainable & creatively prepared seafood at very reasonable prices. Definitely recommend


Outstanding dinner!


We eat at Passionfish whenever we visit Pacific Grove.


Exceptional experience, rarely available in a small town. First and foremost the food was outstanding. In addition the waitstaff was unusually knowledgeable about all aspects, including in-depth advice about pairing from the extensive wine list. And the affordably prices wine bottles do make me a repeat customer.
