    Food was fine. Restaurant didn't have reservation from opentable and said we didn't have one even after I showed them email confirmation. Wasn't busy and got seated but kind of dumb when people deny the obvious.

    The calamari app was over cooked... drak breading and a bit tough. The scallops also fried were perfect. This is our second time at this restaurant having just moved to williamsburg. Both times we experienced over cooked calamari. Also time span from ordering to getting our main course was extremely long. Waitress kept apologizing for kitchen errors. Seems like they have several kitchen elements to correct.

    We had Muscles, Halibut and sesame tuna. Food was prepared nicely and tasted very fresh! Ambiance is a bit blah, had potential but with news playing on TV at bar, and seating area looking a bit cheap and touristy... not quite what we expected. Would go back, but not for a nice night out...

    For sure fat tuna is over rated. The ambience and mood was very positive but the food was below par. I wish that the food was presented better and had more flavor. Prices are excellent but quality needs to improve.

    the food and service was outstanding. it is an open space with a lot of tables. it was a bit difficult to move around and it was a bit noisy due to it being very crowded. I would definitely go back. And you definitely need to make reservations.

    Excellent time here during Valentine's Day of 2020. We made a reservation for 8:30pm and arrived a little early, around 8:10pm, and were seated promptly at 8:29pm. Highly recommend doing a reservation during busy food holidays because they did had a wait time for those who didn't. The food was great, the wine was excellent, and our service through and through was better than we could've asked for. Will definitely enjoy again the next time we're in Williamsburg.

    Server was good. The food we had was good, but two listed wines were not available and the main I wanted was gone (maybe it was never there?). Oysters were very good and the shrimp po’boy was excellent. Had a good meal there previously. Disappointed that it measured up to our first visit.

    We were promptly seated. Our meals were Cod and Flounder lightly breaded and fried. Each dish came with fries and a veggie. I had green beans, my better half had broccoli and green beens. Love the corn bread and hush puppies! Great job on the tasty food! Service was friendly. Overall, we continue to be impressed with Fat Tuna, highly recommend.

    Service was horrible! Getting refills on drinks was almost impossible. Server rarely came to check on the table. Said something to the host and his response was “we’re busy”. Unacceptable answer! Have eaten here a couple of times before without any problems. We were dining with 3 other people who had never been. They loved the food and atmosphere but they also agreed the service was awful.

    Restaurant sat us almost immediately even though we were an hour earlier than our reservation time. Excellent service from our server Joyce. Kept our drinks topped off and checked back often to make sure we had everything we needed. Server made a recommendation to our daughter looking for sushi. My daughter loved what she ordered. I couldn’t resist the fried shrimp. Some of the best fried shrimp I’ve ever tasted. Piping hot with just a light dusting of breading. Hubby loved his grilled tuna with mango salsa topping. Only complaint is that the tables are MUCH too close to each other. We could understand full conversations of surrounding tables. Not the ideal dining experience. But the excellent food and service outweighed this inconvenience. We will return!

    I enjoyed the environment of the restaurant. There was a lot of cool artwork and different lights. The food was really good - huge, juicy scallops; fresh, local, and cheap oysters; and hot, tasty cornbread really set the dinner off right. I would go back.

    Since we all love seafood this was a good choice. The fried oysters were delicious, not overly cooked. The seafood platter contained shrimp, oysters, flounder and scallops and contained enough to share. Our server was attentive, quickly serving us hush puppies and corn muffins when we were seated. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you enjoy seafood.
