The service was excellent even though the place was extremely busy. Food was OK just not memorable. The most memorable part of the night was the noise level was extreme, even painful.

We ate on the porch since our requested booth by the inside window was not available and it was fine. Not many people out there so it was quiet. Waitress was great.

We eat at hot tuna frequently-food is good. The service was really bad I walked to the bar to get the drink I ordered when the bar tender told the sever the server never acknowledged how slow she was and it continued. When I spoke to the mngr she said come back tomorrow she’d give us a round of drinks-didn’t really feel it mattered to her we’d had such bad service.

Waitress was superb. Im allergic to mushrooms and just gave up on ordering something for myself as I did not want to be a nuisance by asking to sub; however, I'm sorry I can't remember her name, receipt is in the truck, she made suggestions and recommended various side options for subbing the mushroom items. I thank her.

The event was cool but the seating area was chilly, especially for my baby. It was definitely warmer outside, so every time a server opened to door to the patio my husband would lean over to it to get warmer. The Polly juice drink was good however it bubbled over everywhere and I probably ruined to napkin mopping the green drink up. The food was good and the decorations are honestly adorable.

Hot Tuna is one of our favorite local restaurants but the prices are creeping up to where it’s losing its value.

The food is a hit and miss. The filet was good but crab she soup was not. The serve was slow and didn’t bring our meal out together. The steak was delivered and that was it. Waitress didn’t check to see if our food was ok, which it wasn’t. We had to get the manger and he helped served us. I meet another of their customers that night and they were having the same problem. When the manger wasn’t helping us he was playing on his phone where the hostess station was located. Very unprofessional and his job would have been more productive if he had went around and talked to the customer. I would not recommend this restaurant.
