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.
The food and service were unparalleled! We sat outside so street traffic was a little loud. We will come back soon!
Best sushi bar in the city. Service is fantastic
The food and service were great. Some of the rolls were very creative (without rice) but one of the simplest (with chive and sesame) was my favorite. It was lovely sitting outside, protected from the threatening drizzle, yet enjoying the breeze and comparative quiet.
I really like the food. I will retire in the future.
Our waiter was Aaron. It was his second night and he did great! The food was amazing and it was a very fun place to go to.
Love this place
Outstanding, fresh, sophisticated sushi.
The food was delicious! Best rice I have ever had!
Great decor inside and out! The food came out very fast. We got to sit at a little booth near the back where we could see the chefs making the food and sushi. Even though we were near the kitchen the noise was still minimal. The service was very good and we were able to order some food off the menu.
The food was A+. The food service was slow but the servers did their best in explaining the delay.
Thank you for all the tasty oysters!
Tuna Bar is consistently so delicious. We’ve never been disappointed here. Definitely don’t miss the tuna tartare, wasabi fried rice with blue crab, the sindy, spicy tuna roll, the “Father’s Day” surf and turf roll.
Daughters choice to celebrate her hard work. Excellent sushi quality with large rolls! Delicious Chef’s Choice also! Service was attentive & enjoyable. Will return!
The food and ambiance was amazing. Great spot to grab a meal with friends or to go on a date. Portion size was worth the price. Wait staff was attentive, kind, and fast. I’ll definitely be back.
Father’s Day ❤️

Delicious sushi and drinks - excellent service.
Very Good Fathers Day Brunch. Have been here many times, always good.
Great place for a night out with friends! The service was great, very quick, and the food was delicious!
Absolutely delicious food and excellent atmosphere. We were pleasantly surprised. The decor is beautiful as well. Definitely planning to return.
Great sushi. Great cocktails. Very much over-priced wine
Great spot for a date night. Excellent sushi, really enjoyed the house roll with cooked lobster.
Always have a great experience here!!
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.
