    Both our server and the food was very good. The blackened tuna (my favorite) was a larger portion than I remember before which was a nice surprise. Relaxed atmosphere adds to a very well prepared meal.

    I have been hearing about this restaurant for several years. It was not at all what I expected. They had a special 3 course dinner but they conveniently did not give us that menu or mention it until we asked. My friend did order the flat iron steak from that menu and it wasn't bad. I ordered flounder stuffed with crabmeat from the regular menu. By far, it was the worst flounder stuffed with crabmeat I've ever had. It was tasteless. The edges were rubbery, like it had been microwaved or something. The crabmeat, which our waiter raved about, left much to be desired. I would not go there again.

    We made a last minute reservation on a Monday night. No problem! The food, as always, was excellent. My wife had Ahi Tuna and it was prepared just as requested. I had Cioppino with a mild red sauce, and it was also perfect. We also had a wonderful catfish fingers appetizer with some very tasty sauces. In all, we love Little tuna. their outside seating is nice although they have uncomfortable tables and chairs which we wish they would upgrade. But sitting outside in toney Haddonfield at a BYOB is always a pleasant experience otherwise.

    The restaurant itself is not extremely elegant but cozy and comfortable. Our waiter was excellent, not overbearing yet very attentive to our needs. My wife was not very hungry, she ordered the mini-crab cakes which were tasty but the sauce on them was Very spicy. She also had the lobster bisque which was very creamy and tasty. For an appetizer, I ordered the chicken pot stickers. What a pleasant surprise! There was a good amount of these tasty morsels. The outside was mildly crunchy but the sauce on them was out of this world. I also ordered the peppercorn tuna. The toppings were a little overwhelming and I would have like the tuna a bit rarer, but still a delicious dinner. In a nutshell, go.

    Too noisy, we could not hear each other talk. The food was good but not worth the price. We spent $100.00 for two entrees, an appetizer and spinach salads. We bought no drinks nor did we have desert. For this price, coffee and a side vegetable would be a nice perk.

    The waiter bought the food to the table without the Dungeness crab on the plate. When I asked the waiter where the Dungeness was, he replied" no Dungeness today" and walked away. The broiled seafood platter clearly states the it is suppose to come with Dungeness. The snow crab that was sent out with the plate was sad and had a grey shell. Not a great experience!

    Very nice BYOB. Appetizer was bacon wrapped scallops. Done to perfection. Sesame encrusted Tuna (rare) also done perfectly and very tasty. Crab cakes with no fillers??? Maybe the best I ever had. You won't be disappointed.

    When we are in the mood for seafood, The Little Tuna is the first place we think about, if we don't want to drive to the shore. The food is so fresh, and well-seasoned. Tables are far enough away that you can have a quiet conversation. The seafood market that greets you when you first arrive always displays enticing offerings.

    The tuna that my wife ordered was just ok. You would expect a lot better based on the name of the restaurant. I ordered a shrimp dish with crab meat. It was good, however it was definitely not worth the price. We have had lunch here a couple times and enjoyed it more than our first dinner here.

    My family was in from out of town and wanted to try a good, seafood place. The Little Tuna delivered! It's in a perfect location with easy parking nearby. We loved that it was a BYOB! The appetizers were all amazing - extra creamy spinach and artichoke dip, great chicken pot stickers and oysters that were very good as well. Our meals were fantastic! We had two varieties of the tuna, both cooked to perfection. The mashed sweet potatoes were amazing! We didn't try dessert so we will definitely need to go back another time for that. A great place if you love seafood!

    From the appetizers to the specials to the entree... Everything was very very good! We had a party of four and took advantage of this to try multiple appetizers. The oysters of the day were blue points and they were perfect in freshness as well as prep. The bacon blue cheese steak bites were smokey tender with just the right amount of blue cheese sharpness. Scallops wrapped in bacon were a step above for an old standard and the calamari was fresh and sweet with a crunchy exterior. A bowl of lobster bisque was shared by all and it was full of lighty creamy lobster goodness! Entrees were all different fish plates perfectly cooked with fresh gorgeous fish. Of special note was the sushi grade tunas and delicate salmon. We will be back!

    We had an excellent lunch at The Little Tuna on Haddonfield's "main street". The weather was nice, so we sat outside on the sidewalk in the shade of a tree where we could watch the passersby. The service was prompt and courteous. All three of us ordered the same Mediterranean salad with blackened tuna. Both salad and tuna were delicious. I had a tasty apple cobbler served warm for desert. We had been to the restaurant several times for dinner, but not for lunch. We would definitely go back for lunch if we are in the area.

    The Little Tuna is a great place for well prepared, fresh seafood. Every item on the menu is well prepared with an emphasis on the fish. The sauces and other supplemental ingredients do not take away from the fish itself.

The room is attractive and has a calming atmosphere. Very good food, very good service. The prices are reasonable for a white table cloth lunch experience.

    I love the Little Tuna for it's small town, local fancy feel. It's by no means an upscale restaurant... but it deserves 5 stars for what it is in fact. The restaurant is a solid byob. They have a fresh raw bar and they aren't perfect "shuckers", but they do have a buck a shuck special every night of the week. Their menu is solid and you would be hard pressed to find something that wasn't delicous and cooked right to perfection. Some of their side sauces are house made and others are still special enough. They are making their cocktail sauce in house and I love that! We had a birthday party here for my father in law... and they are a bit "stuffy" at time... this was a very special, unusual and totally amazing place for kitchy dining.

    I have been eating at Little Tuna for several years and it is one of our go-to places for special events (birthdays,graduations, etc) and I can simply say: it is always good. We are a seafood loving family and there are both delicious menu staples as well as enticing specials. They also have a great dinner deal before 6:30 which is perfect if you want to go for a more casual dinner, my husband and I sometimes go there for a weekday "date night". It is just a great little place.

    Little Tuna has been consistently good. I can ony remember one time that I was disappointed and not in the food, but the service and that waiter is no longer at Little Tuna. It is my go to restaurant for lunch, for dinner, for girl's night out, for couples nite out for any time. Little Tuna started on Haddonfield Road, moved to Kings Highway and just gets better and better. I keep forgetting that they opened a fresh fish and sides part to their restaurant, I have to try itm as I am surem if it is like the restaurant itself, it is great.

    The food, as usual, was very good. We dined on a Monday night which was very quiet and were disappointed that we were very rushed with the service. We felt that the wait staff wanted us to finish as soon as possible so they could go home! Tables that had been set but not used near to us were cleared as we had desert and coffee, making us feel very rushed. Have not had this experience on prior visits. Dining should be a relaxing experience.

    We were seated in the upstairs dining room. The window was open and it was very delightful. The food was delicious. I read many good reviews on the lobster bisque and I was not disappointed. Nothing on the menu was jumping out at my daughter, but she did finally decide on the baked sampler and was very glad she did, loved every item on it. I enjoyed the lobster ravioli and scallops. Would definitely return

    we were seated upstairs.once we were seated with the two large party's that were already there, we realized the noise level was intolerable. There are no sound deadening carpets or wall hangings in the room. The waiter then seated us downstairs which was so much better. For a better dining experience, the room should be made quieter.
