Amazing food, great ambiance. We travel an hour from NJ just to eat there. Wish they’d open a location near us!
Excellent food and exceptional serviced. Inventive take on sushi. Will definitely be back.
The food was and the service amazing. It's definitely on the list of best in Philadelphia!
Wonderful experience taking my elderly parents out for dinner. We sat outside and Josh waited on us, he was wonderful and patient. Next time I’m in town, we will definitely be back!
The chefs selection sashimi was delicious!
It’s our Sunday date night spot! Service is always perfect, food is amazing and we feel like we are walking into “Cheers” where everyone knows our name, drink and favorite dish!
My wonton soup did not taste fresh. I had high expectations. I was very disappointed. The wontons were not formed properly. It looked as if i had a bowl of egg drop soup.
Hands down best sushi I've ever had! Bartender was really kind about our food taking a while (it didn't even take long in my opinion, maybe 30 mins) and offered us drinks. we also got a complimentary champagne toast for our anniversary (: great place for a nice date! Thank you for making our evening special!
Lovely!!!! Deff will be bsck
Food was delish. Server was great. Front host ladies were awesome..to the young host lady who took our pic outside...she made sure she got all the angles...*Chefs kiss! We will be back!
Food is amazing! Tuna Crudo melts in your mouth and the Rittenhouse Roll is tuna & truffle heaven. A must try!
The folks at Tuna Bar were extremely accommodating when we had to move our reservation up several hours. The food was served quickly and everything we had was amazing. While the sushi was great, the appetizers were the true stand-outs. Our server was attentive and checked on us periodically throughout the evening and never made us feel rushed. I would happily return in the future!
Server was very difficult to understand and hear because of noise level in restaurant. Also hard to have table conversation because of noise levels.
We enjoyed our dinner last night. The sushi was fresh and deliciously prepared. The service was prompt and excellent! Our only regret was not visiting sooner.
Literally obsessed with this spot. My only go-to for sushi for the future. THE best place to go to overall food service experience everything!!!! My favorite thing we ordered was the tuna flatbread! A must try!!! Brussel sprouts are fire too.
Tuna crudo was insane. Good cocktails
The food was very aesthetic and pretty good!
Excellent sushi service, comfortable restaurant in a great corner of Old City Philly.
One of my favorite places in Philly! Delicious food! Tuna Crudo it’s my absolute favorite.
Great place and great food overall but the Rittenhouse roll was so so.
The food and service is always top notch. Absolutely loved the Brussels sprouts and Broad Street salmon special roll.
Such great sushi and presentation. You could tell how fresh the food was and the service was good as well
Good food, good setting. Extremely expensive as compared to other Philadelphia sushi restaurants.
Food was decent. Our waiter was annoyed with us for some reason. Happy our was nice (:
get the tuna crudo and dont share it. you will not be disappointed
service not that great. i dined alone and felt judged by the staff even though I spent a lot of $ & left a great tip. Food was absolutely amazing. hoping for a better experience next time
This was my second time at Tuna Bar and I can now say it is my favorite sushi in the city. Excellent quality and unique special rolls. My favorite was the Sindy roll- definitely recommend and will get again! Their cocktails are also delightful.
Amazing like always!
Everything was so fresh and amazing. The ambiance was perfect for a Saturday afternoon lunch date.
The Tuna Bar is one of the best restaurants in Philadelphia. The Hurts and Rittenhouse roles are absolutely delicious. Actually, everything on the menu is very good. A Gem is the best way to describe it.
The service and food were outstanding! We will definitely be back soon!
Food was mediocre
Booth was not wiped down and dirty
The food was phenomenal in presentation, quality, and taste. We got the tuna tartare and a few specialty rolls and I can honestly say it was the best sushi Ive ever had yet. The restaurant also has a nice atmosphere.
Get the tuna crudo!!
Great rolls, the tuna tartare and Brussel sprouts were the perfect way to start. And we had an awesome waiter.
Server was rude, did not pour out my boyfriend’s beer when he was serving us. Ambiance was just okay, but food was amazing.
Sushi was amazing and the ambience is great! Definitely make a reservation because it’s very popular!
Everything was amazing from the modern tasteful design to the professional staff (Jenna was so sweet and helpful!) and spectacular food. The food presentation was thoughtful and traditional with a contemporary spin. Ken has done an awesome job creating a successful concept that my husband and I can’t wait to return to on our rare days off together. So happy to have found great sushi on the east coast that knocked every course out of the park! -Nicole
The food was delicious but the noise level was incredibly loud. Our table was in front of a booth, and people were really really loud. I get it, but the table for two perhaps should not be placed next to a booth that can hold six or more patrons. Or maybe there should be a noise buffer to absorb some of the table’s noise. Unfortunately it affected our experience.
Great spot for those looking for photo-worthy food/bg’s. Food was good, slightly overpriced. Table was extremely small, chairs were uncomfortable. The waiter was a little condescending and made us feel slightly uneducated even though we explained that we needed his assistance with picking a drink.
