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.

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.

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.

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.
