Tuna Bar was a great experience! From the host to wait staff was professional and efficient. I would recommend TB to all my friends and family. I am looking forward to going back!
Experience was even better than pre-pandemic. Happy to bring it back into our regular mix.
It’s just a great place to eat
Stopped by for lunch with my girlfriend. Great friendly staff and food was delicious. Excited to try their happy hour.
Food never disappoints. Great service and staff is attentive
Cocktails and food were good - not outstanding but I am from San Francisco where this would be the norm. We sat indoors because we were afraid of the rain and the chairs were wooden and not comfortable. Our waiter was patient and easy and we appreciated him. He easily exchanged a dish that was not gluten free even though we had not specified that we needed it before it came. The chef's special roll with scallops was the best! We had a sashimi combo in addition. All the fish was fresh and well presented.
GREAT SUSHI!!!! always fresh as hell... (isnt that key?!?!)
GREAT DRINKS.... michael at the bar rocks!
Love sitting outside....
Very nice experience! Seated immediately, greeted by our server quickly as well. The bartender Michael even came out to our table to see if he could accomadate us with drink options. Sushi was good! Go!
Love this place! Come here every time we’re in Philly. They are extremely accommodating for gluten free patrons 😊
The sushi was amazing! My boyfriend and I ordered the fishtown, rittenhouse & yellow tail and chives! Best sushi we’ve ever had. Drinks were to die for, our waiter was really sweet and on top of everything. Will be coming back!
Such good food, my friends and I loved it. The staff was also super friendly.
Really flavorful and high quality sushi and appetizers. You don’t feel too full after eating 2 rolls; enough to make you feel fulfilled but not overly stuffed. The music was a bit loud which was hard to talk over, even to the people at my table. Staff wore masks and any patrons up and about also were good about wearing masks. The aesthetics of the restaurant were very nice. Try and get a table at a booth or a bench if possible, the seats were a tad bit slouchy.
A fantastic experience and really great food! The ambiance was amazing, the staff were cordial and courteous, and the food was delicious!
It was our first time to Tuna Bar. Great spot. Fish was fresh and prepared perfectly. Our server, Courtney, was great. Personable and responsive. The Saki was delicious and complimented the sushi perfectly. Must try the tuna flatbread! We’ll be back!
excellent choices of sake and food items. some at our table thought the sushi too salty but I found it quite tasty. Service was prompt and professional.
Amazing customer service!! Love them!
Best sushi ever. Not inexpensive, but worth every dollar. SOOOO GOOD!!!
