Hot Tuna is loud on a Friday night, everybody celebrating the week-end, but mos enjoyable. Tacos were delicious.
Great service and ambiance. However, my shrimp and zucchini spirals were absolutely tasteless. Coconut cake was great!
Brunch was spectacular!
Marisa is wonderful!
Good local restaurant with helpful & friendly staff and some standout appetizers. The pretzels with crab dip and the ahi tuna appetizers were great.
Hot Tuna was our 3rd dinner out for restaurant week and it was great. It's a fun place with great food. The dinning room is very nice and the bar area is an active social scene. Our food was delicious. Love their eggplant meatballs even though this time they were a little too over done... the cedar plank salmon was to die for! The garlic green beans were very good and the mushroom rosoto was the best I've ever eaten. The meal was topped off a very good cream coconut cake. Really enjoy Hot Tuna and look forward to going and recommending to others.
The food and service at Hot Tuna is excellent. It is a local favorite. Never disappointed.
The food was excellent.
The wait staff was friendly, very efficient and not intrusive.
The hosts were very accommodating, friendly, and very helpful.
Warmly greeted for a Valentine's day evening. Enjoyed the 'Valentine's Dinner for Two' special. Great food and service!
Vday great day out!
Our server was very friendly and efficient, we got seated quickly. Like the variety of drinks and food prices are always reasonable and good quality.
Food was ok. I've had better seafood at numerous other places. Stacey was our waitress and she was phenomenal! Really on her toes.
This is now my third time at Hot Tuna. I took my friend here who was visiting from out of town. We had the Greek salad (good, no complaints) and a trio plate with tile fish, oysters Rockerfeller, and salmon, and two drinks. The tile fish tasted like a standard white, breaded fish. The oysters Rockerfeller were very heavy in cheese and kind of took away from the oysters. The wood-plank salmon was tasty. Our two drinks were good as well.
Food is consistently great at Hot Tuna. Friday night was no exception. Can't wait to go back!
50th birthday celebration
Unimpressive. Food was good. Service was good. Not sure why there were so many employees(?) just hanging out by the hostess table. : /. Not worth going back.
excellent food and great service. Ordered a wonderful tuna trilogy dish.
We had a wonderful time. The food and service was great.
Hot Tuna never disappoints! Great neighborhood
Restaurant that has reliably good food and good service.
This is a great restaurant! We loved our night out. Everyone had great meals and we had everything from a scallops special (AMAZING) to the favorite Cedar Plank Salmon. Our server was professional and on point. The chef came out twice to ask if we were satisified. A total win. We will be back.
Food was delicious, she crab soup especially and Shelly our server was a delight
We met friends for dinner and had requested a booth in the bar. After a very short wait we were accommodated. We enjoyed Scallops, Salmon and Tuna dinners and the food was excellent. Our server was awesome and we look forward to our next visit.
As always our food, service and experience was perfect!
Outstanding as always. Number 1 seafood in the area. Love it! Always come here when In the area and always excellent
Service was phenomenal. Food was great...sushimi appetizer and eggplant meatball appetizer we're very yummy. My steak was cooked to perfection. Wonderful experience.
Nice restaurant, interesting menu. Server was very slow to refill drinks; more than once. But, otherwise good experience.
Hot Tuna is one of our go-to restaurants in Virginia Beach. Great value for money, with outstanding happy hour specials. We took some visitors on Wednesday night, so we had a choice of the regular menu, dinner specials, happy hour specials, and tapas options (available only on Wednesdays).
Very nice cedar plank dishes!
Always great food and service at Hot Tuna. Chef Todd and his team do an awesome job in the kitchen, especially tapas night on Wednesday! Great vegetarian options as well.
Great meal - service was on point! Our table was ready and waiting for us. Only drawback is their selection of beers. Would be nice to see more craft beers, but I'm a craft beer lover!
Hot Tuna never fails to please us. The variety and preparation of the food is always excellent. Service was a little slow at first, but the place was hopping. We didn’t mind waiting because we were there to visit with friends.
excellent service... Food was delicious as always
always know people there
seated right away
Always a fun girls night at Hot Tuna. Wednesday Happy Hour TIL 9pm.
As usual, the food is prepared exceptionally well. The specials are always worth considering. My wife had the cedar plank salmon... as usual. I had the Rockfish, bay style. Both Superb! The Rockfish a little pricey at forty, but a good sized portion (8oz, 3oz became the next day's lunch). I opted for the mushroom risotto (my favorite, and prepared better than mine at home... and mine is superb!).
We were crammed into a table up against a wall. Asked for a salad and my meal came. Never got the salad. Waitress did not co.e back to check how our meal was. Ordered dessert and shortly after it arrived I had to get up to inform the waitress that my father was possibly having a heart attack and we needed to go to the nearest emergency room. She got the check prepared for me to pay. She offered me water and when I asked if I could have a bottle of water she then told me that she needed to charge me $3.75 I believe it was for the bottle of water.
I'm appalled. I am pretty sure we paid for the dessert that we never had an opportunity to eat as well. And if I know my mother she tipped the waitress very well.
I'm very disappointed in this experience and we have been here several times before.
