On one hand this place is something of a poster child for the overpriced share plates trend. Service is variable, and the industrial-chic decor could use a refresh. However...we also find the menu compelling and unique, and most dishes are executed very well. The variety of tuna options is fun, oysters are great, and grilled octopus is a standout. Remains a solid choice in this part of RiNo.

Mister Tuna is my favorite restaurant in Denver. Incredible ingredients put together very skillfully, their dishes are out of this world. My favorite is their seafood dishes, but even their sides and non-seafood dishes are incredible. The gnocchi last night was one of the best pasta dishes I've ever had. Their seafood is fresh, they have great presentation and the chefs are very kind. Highly recommend!

Service was unusually slow (30 minutes before our drinks came) but the wait was well worth it once the food came. The Crab and Duck were excellent as was the Gnocchi. Hopefully it was just an off night, we will return.

We went to Mister Tuna with some coworkers/friends on Wednesday night. The food at this restaurant is unbelievably good. The service we had that night was pretty poor. However, I have to say, they got inundated with two gigantic parties just prior to us arriving. It took us forever to get drinks. This server was really good and I understood the situation he was in and he communicated it well. So I can’t fault the server as he was trying very hard. The manager offered to Pay for a round of drinks. This was very nice and not expected, however, they forgot to take it off the bill. They got it cleared up and all was good. I do believe the service we received is not indicative of the restaurant in general. I think it was a situation issue. Do not let this review deter you from going to Mister Tuna. It is an incredible restaurant with great food and great atmosphere and we will be back again for sure.

Staff was very knowledgeable about the menu, with good recommendations. The food was very good, but most plates portions were extremely small, yet prices were what you would expect for a full meal! It was difficult to have a conversation due to noise level.

There’s 6 of us for dinner. We ordered 15 plates and we seriously couldn’t find any dish that was a winner. The duck was super sweet, the macaroni with the kahlua pig was super vinegary. I understand it’s tapas style but the portions were just not as good. I’m glad we got to try it. Been meaning to for the longest time. Now that we have, we don’t have to go back.

Our server, I believe her name is Sam, was slow to attend to our table throughout the meal and was condescending at the end, ruining the vibe of the great meal. We loved the pleasant surprise discovery of the musician Lyle Divinsky

Our server was great, but it took quite a bit of time to get a glass of wine, which she said was due to a new bar tender. Food was good with the exception of the little burger. Also the garage doors were open, but it was a bit windy/cool, so we left since it took so long to get a drink and were cold.

I had a great time but it was my birthday and it was never addressed by the waitress. I had written it on my reservation and told the hostess upon arrival.
Although it was not a total bust that they didn’t it was a very special day for me and I was a bit sad nothing came of it.

Overall, this was a solid meal. Troy Guard runs very good restaurants, and the flavors are usually on par. Most dishes tried here were very flavorful. The only exception was the sm'oaked shrimp. These had no flavor, and were very expensive to boot. That really informs our review. this is an expensive restaurant. At that, it is not a good value, especially compared to Troy's others.

The food was amazing but dishes we ordered were hard to split between four people. Most restaurants would suggest ordering two of something if it is not enough food to share with all parties. We ordered the shrimp dish and it only came with two shrimp, so for four people we only got half a shrimp for $15. The tuna poke only had two pieces of tuna in it which was disappointing considering the name of the restaurant is mister tuna and the server’s suggestion was to split everything.

This was our second time dining at Mister Tuna. We sat at the chef’s counter on a Tuesday. The vibes were great! We had the kampachi, the burrata, octopus, shiitake mushrooms, and the duck. The duck was our favorite. We really wished the burrata was served with some grilled bread....The food was all tasty but not worth the price of still being hungry after a $100 dinner...cocktails were delicious though!

Just changed their menu to all small plates. Pretty much everyone one we had was executed perfect and was delicious. The duck is a must and was cooked perfectly. The poke bowl was spicy and well balanced. Cauliflower flatbread had great crust and nice heat from Calabrian Chiles. The goat was great as well. Octopus was perfectly cooked and the sauce and unripened strawberrys were a nice compliment. Can’t wait to go back and very impressed.
