With illuminated fish sculptures and chandeliers that look like streams of bubbles, Passionfish manages to be somewhere that’s both a romantic dinner spot and somewhere that reminds us of the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Their seafood-forward menu is sustainably sourced and creative, with dishes like scallops with caper-walnut relish and mussels in a bacon-fennel broth. Their wine list is pretty reasonable, with a massive selection of half-bottles starting at $18, including top-tier French wines for under $50.
