Passionfish offers a unique California dining experience with serious food and wine in a fun and casual atmosphere. The ever-changing menu features the freshest, sustainable seafood, slow-cooked meats, organic greens and delectable desserts, all complemented by an award winning wine list priced well below what you’ve come to expect.
Passionfish is owned and operated by Chef Ted Walter and his wife Cindy Walter. They are vocal advocates for sustainable seafood education. The Walters helped launch the sustainable seafood movement in Monterey County through legislative advocacy, public presentations, and educational forums for culinary students, restaurateurs and chefs. Through their efforts the City of Pacific Grove has revised its grease trap ordinance and adopted a Sustainable Seafood Resolution. The Walters are also advocate for ecologically sound fishing practices and the ban of non-recyclable products.
We particularly admire Passionfish for the dogged way they check sourcing and traceability and feel they shouldn't be afraid to boast about their achievements on the menu. We think they are far too modest!
This is without doubt one of the best restaurants we have reviewed and fully deserve their brilliant Four Blue Fish rating. Hurrah for Passionfish!
