Our waiter was very pleasant and brought a fun dessert for us as we were there for a graduation celebration. The food was amazing and the price was fair. Overall, a wonderful time!

Cold in the restaurant. Air conditioning kept turning on, cold for a 45 degree night. Seats sink in too much, uncomfortable.
Great food, server was very nice and helpful.

Very good sushi in a great environment. Took a couple that rarely experienced sushi and they enjoyed it as well.

We've been here before and have always been pleased, not this last time though. I won't write, "War and Peace", but in a nutshell; the restaurant wasn't that busy at 6:30 and it took more than half an hour to get our food after we ordered, once it arrived the rolls we ordered were dry and tasteless and the gyoza were ice cold, so maybe the good was ready sooner but just not picked up by the server. Overall service was just very, very slow. To be fair, the salmon salad was tasty, the server was pleasant, and she did make an adjustment to our bill when we mentioned some of the problems. We'll try again, maybe it was just an off night, but we were a bit disappointed with our experience.

Wanted to try something different then our usual fair and heard good things about Screaming Tuna. Not knowing a lot about the cuisine added to the experience of trying something new which we love to do. Made reservations for my wife and myself. When we showed up and checked in we were told that they only had seats at the Sushi Bar for us which was a little shocking since we had reservations. After discussing with the hostess she was able to put us in the dining area since she had a open table and was not expecting the next part for about an hour and 15 minutes. Plenty of time. Ordered drinks which were great and fairly priced and then proceeded to order our dinner. Little tricky and this is where our lack of experience became our down fall. Our waiter was terrific in trying to explain all the selections but after ordering our food and finishing our meals we still felt that we were walking out under satisfied for the price we had just spent.

The food was great even though it took a while to arrive, and the noise level was louder than I have ever heard it there before making it difficult to talk to people without almost yelling. Usually it’s not that loud but the food was outstanding as always.

I’ve been to ScreamingTuna once before and it was excellent. This time, what a mistake. I’ve never had a specialty roll that was bland until now. The other roll with salmon smelled of mold. Just awful. Save your money.

Screaming Tuna is me and my fiance's absolute favorite!! We told them we were coming on our anniversary and they made it very special with champagne and dessert! We go there for every special occasion and it's amazing every time! We recommend crab wontons for appetizer and the garlic, spicy tuna and no name rolls. :)

Delicious sushi rolls and a great value with the SIN menu on Sunday and Monday! If you can ask for a table near the window, one of the diners will have a nice evening view of the river/city.

The five of us thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Screaming Tuna. We laughed and shared food, while sipping mimosas. The food was delicious, as usual as tried items new to us on the menu - there was so much to choose from. Our waitress was a delight. We will be back again to celebrate another birthday!

As a vegetarian, Screaming Tuna is the only local sushi restaurant I get excited about. Most places have options, but you can just have so many cucumber rolls, you know? Screaming Tuna has inventive veggie options that are delicious and filling! I highly recommend the Veggie Shekhar roll - SO DELICIOUS. The staff is always kind and engaging and helpful. I only wish it were closer to my home! :)

We had a great night at Screaming Tuna. Valet parking for $5 was perfect, as there is limited self parking in the area. The ambiance of the restaurant was bustling -- just what we were looking for in a fun night out. The food was good, but not the best sushi we've had. The rolls were beautiful but the flavour didn't quite live up to the presentation. That being said, it was a nice night out and we'll definitely be back - especially when it warms up and we can be on the patio.

First time there. Took the wife for the 12th anniversary. Food was very good. Only thing I would suggest is for the sushi for two that you add just a little more ginger and wasabi (sp). We ran out on our platter. Also our waiter Ivan?? He needs to talk quite a bit louder. When it's chef's choice we were not sure exactly what we were eating on a few of the items. Otherwise we loved the view of the river with window seating. It was the first time I ate sushi and would absolutely come back with my wife. Thank you.

We enjoyed our first visit to Screaming Tuna. We're planning on taking our son and his girlfriend there when we comeback to Milwaukee next month. The only negative thing I can say is that the signage about where to enter is confusing. We struggled when we got there and thought it was just us. While waiting for our Uber, we helped 3 other couples with the entrance so I think it could be better marked.

We had waited a very long time before a waitress even came to our table. Then our appetizer and entrees were brought out within minutes of each other. Table wasn’t cleared. Service was very poor.

Our apps and sushi were delicious. Our server was attentive. The food and drinks arrived promptly. I feel good knowing that Screaming Tuna's seafood is responsibly harvested from stocks that are not overfished or raised in ways that are environmentally damaging #sustainableseafood

Only disappointment was that I did have a reservation, but when I asked If we can just sit at the bar(it was only 2 of us) they told me “no” everything was booked up. So my friend and I are still waiting to be seated and about 15 minutes later like 4 people walk in and sit at the bar! I made the host aware of what just happened and his response was “we’re clearing off a table to seat you anyway!”

Booking system triple overbooked the restaurant, causing our party of 3 to sit at the bar instead of at a table. Was fine since we were still able to order from the main menu but annoying that we couldn't get a regular table. Food & drinks were great as always.

Screaming tuna is almost always a little chilly. Most of the times we are seating by the window and it seems there is a vent above us.
