    We went to the little tuna for dinner on a Friday night. The salad was mediocre. The food was plain. One of my favorite appetizers is tuna. There, it was sliced too thick and didn't have anything special. We should have spent out $100 in Philly.

    My husband and I enjoyed a pleasant dinner with excellent service. I took advantage of the 3 courses (soup, salad, and entree) for $20 while my husband's entree alone (we both had tuna) was $27, which makes it worth getting there before 6:30! I did not love their "famous" lobster bisque as it was very heavy on the cream and light on the lobster, but their tuna was cooked to perfection!

    Our for was great--we had 3 courses for under $20 each, The seafood is always fresh and perfectly cooked. We had the scallops primavera with penne in a splashy garlic sauce. Delish! The only drawback was in service when the server, thinking that because I had arrived 15 minutes prior to my dining partner and had overheard him explain the specials to the couple adjacent my seat that he didn't need to repeat them directly to us. Oy vey! Needless to say I felt dissed. I didn't care at the time because we had already made up our mind on our selections but it would have been a common courtesy. The rest of the service was absolutely fine.

    little tuna has always been a stalwart dining experience. Good and fresh seafood at not unreasonable prices,try the 3course for20$,the only complaint was the filet bites were too fatty or the bacon was not cooked properly. otherwise great dinner.

    I dine at Little tuna with some family members from out of town. Food was good, service was OK...Couple of suggestions to the restaurant: For a BYOB, rather than putting out the cheap grade wine glasses they should invest on some proper wine glasses specific for white or red wine since they are charging premium fees for the entrees. I am certain that the guest who are dining at this restaurant know how to pair their food with their wine... My second comment is that some of the dishes are a bit overly stuffed, filled and topped... The catfish special with the Cajun spices I had was so salty and I am one who puts salt on everything I eat, thought that it was too much... the fish was smothered with the spices that I couldn't taste the fish

    We were a party of four. We each ordered something different. Everything was very fresh tasting. I believe that all of the fish selections were wild caught and not the usual cheap tilapia or farm raised salmon. Our waiter was personable and the room was pretty.

    Little Tuna's earns an A➕ for service. We made reservations for noon, but arrived a bit early. Our party included a toddler and the host welcomed us with enthusiasm. His attitude was very much appreciated especially when dealing with small children The host also served as our waiter and we never had to wait for anything. In my book, we dined at the Big Tuna.

    This was one of South Jersey's Restaurant Week events, dubbed Farm to Fork. We took the menu specially designed for this event. The portions were generous and the entree were good. However, my soup was a bit on the salty side and the dessert was too simplistic. Yet for $35 a person, it is worth the money. BTW, toward the latter part of our meal, there were a couple of flies. We told the staff, but was not nothing they can do about. What a pity!

    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!

    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.
