Very close seating and very loud. Food is good, fresh, good value. BYOB so that is good.

This was our first visit to the new location in Lindenwold. Everything was excellent, but the noise level what a bit of a distraction.
There was a large party in the back of the dining room and they were very boisterous!
Other than the noise, the food was excellent and service very attentive.
We'll be back!

They need to work on the acoustics. Lots of people seated. Had to yell to be heard by my friend and the waiters. Happy they moved closer to me. Will go back for the outdoor seating but not indoors. Too crowded on a Friday night.

Little Tuna was a let-down. The food was fine but underwhelming; overpriced for what you received. Waited over 30 minutes for our food after ordering even though there were only a few other tables in the restaurant. My 5-year-old wanted a shrimp platter and since they don't have one we agreed to pay $3 per shrimp for what we were told would the very big shrimp. I figured jumbo butterfly but instead they were standard smaller shrimp. Our server was very nice though.

Was extremely warm in the restaurant which may have been due to a nice early April day. Service was slow and they seemed understaffed. The food itself was very good. I had the seafood sampler. Will probably try again. Hopefully service is a little faster and it is not as warm and stuffy inside.

Went on a Sunday evening for a "bounce back" special coupon for $20 off that we got at our last visit. Usually go on Saturday evening, appreciated the calm, relaxing atmosphere of a Sunday visit. We were able to get our requested favorite table. The restaurant is small and intimate. Service was excellent. Food as usual was delicious. The lobster bisque is the best we have had anywhere. Warm chewy rolls appreciated. Entrees were excellent, had the special of bacon-wrapped salmon stuffed with blue cheese and my spouse had the tuna with peppercorns, blue cheese and mushrooms. The mashed sweet potatoes are great, wish I knew what their secret ingredient is that makes them taste so wonderful. It is a BYOB, ice bucket provided.

Took an hour and 15 mins before we got appetizers and another hour for dinner .... we were told the restaurant was ‘very busy’. Reservation was at 8 and we left at 11:15. Asked for a manger and waiter was incredibly rude. Hostess away and never came back...and a manager never came. Not a good experience.

Food was excellent but for a restaurant where the average plate is $25-$35 the service should be exceptional. Our waiter was not attentive. We had to ask the hostess for water and when he brought us our Sparkling water, gave us the bottle and ran away without giving us glasses for it. The table next to us brought a bottle of wine which he removed the cork and sat it on the table, having the woman poor it herself. Every other byob I go to will uncork and pour. For a restaurant with higher entree fees one would expect exceptional service. These are just two examples. It didn’t ruin the dinner because the food is phenomenal but I expect better service.

It's really tight seating and when others are waiting to be seated they are made to wait at the door. I feel the seating is on top of each other. I guess it's best to go on a Sat afternoon, definitely not a Friday night after work or a Saturday night. The food was good and wait staff friendly.

We come here about once a month. The food is always delicious (I love the Blackened Grouper!) hot and delivered promptly.

The Lobster Bisque is wonderful also.

Staff is great---Aiden is a great waiter. We asked for him.

The seating can be a bit cramped when the restaurant is crowded, but it's well worth it. This time we ate upstairs, which is spacious and has its own bathrom.

There's a Gelato store next door!

Be aware this is a BYOB.

First time to this cute little restaurant in Haddonfield. The restaurant is cute but small. Service was great. Larinda really did her job and seemed to love it. Food was great. I had sesame encrusted ahi and my husband the scallops and pasta. We also had raw clams, mussels in white sauce and both were great. Will go back.

I was disappointed in our meal last Saturday evening. We waited an hour for our appetizers. My clams casino was almost burnt. The wait for our meals was also long. Potatoes were dried out but my meal was alright. Disappointing after our last meal which was wonderful.

The service was not good. The waitress was hassled and did not pay good attention to getting our wine set up and with anything through the meal. At one point she said they were very busy with a party upstairs. That's no excuse for spotty service. The busgirl was sloppy at the beginning of the meal and spilled a lot of water down my back when reaching behind me to put water glasses on the table. My sweater was soaked. She ignored it until I called her over a few minutes later and asked her for paper towels. She never apologized. We will not be back anytime soon.

First of all my RSVP was at 8 pm call the I was running late for few min because of the weather ( snowing everybody is driving slow) got there at 8:09 to be exact wait for 15-20 more minutes, finally to the table (2nd floor) seat for 10_15 min no server, finally came in, can't understand the name because of the noise, so we order simple diet coke with lemon never came in, finally another server notice the we were sitting on a corner waiting, yay somebody notice us took our order, sodas finally arrived almost frozen, like somebody put then in the freezer, 10+ min finally some appetizers came in, server removed plates you food would be right out...crikets, crickets, crikets...finally the food 9:30 pm. Yes 9:30 pm fish tender, topping horribly salty, it was the special of the night "groupier" or whatever, the dude finally check on us, anything else I can do for you guys tonight? No thank you. Just the check....crikets, crickets...I put my coat on took myself downstairs and pay, guys come down like somebody was trying to robe him, we were we just paying he was like thank you guys have a good night, good night? First I was a server, you just don't mention the special of the night. be attentive with your guest make then feel comfortable, ask then if you guys are celebrating any special occasion, then offer anything else. Well my point is it was my first time at the rest. I pick because it was my birthday and because I like to support local bussinrs, but I will never step my foot in your door again. Thank you

I want to start off by saying, I have heard nothing but great reviews and received many recommendations from friends and family to eat at the Little Tuna. The restaurant was highly recommended for its supposed unbelievable food and respected service. Well.. service was not so great. I had reserved a table for 2, days in advance, yet upon arriving, we had to wait for a table to be prepared and opened. Honestly, I get it, busy night things happen, but thats just the beginning. After ordering our food our waitress brought my date and I the wrong meal 3 different times with absolute no exaggeration. When our food finally arrived after a timed 1 hour and 17 minutes (yes I timed it), my plate was a mess, it appeared the dish was accidentally topped over. I feel terrible writing a poor review but there's more. The taste quality of the food wasn't much better. No joke, licking a salt block would have been a less saltier taste. During my college years I resorted back to the infamous Ramen noodles and those salt induced heart attack in a pouches have less salt compared to this Don Juan Pond of our dish. After leaving and resorting to the closest beverage stand screaming for water, my date and I tried to rationally come up with and excuse towards our experience. Through great thought we were able to agree upon a shortage of staff, as it appeared only two waitresses were on duty to take on both upstairs and downstairs of the restaurant. However, for someone who once was a waiter, I am well aware that a shortage of waiters and or waitresses in a restaurant is absolutely no excuse for poor service/quality of food. The only positive experience of the night was that the scallops were cooked to perfection, tender, melts in your mouth, yet as mentioned extremely salty. Again I feel terrible to write such a negative review, I like to be optimistic and give the place the benefit of the doubt, however, I am hesitant to return.

Got seated right away on Valentine's day upstairs. It was quite loud up there, could not hear all the specials the waiter described. The mahi mahi was excellent as was the blackened tuna, very fresh. Plain meal but very good quality. They served two little rolls per table, so although we didn't fill up on bread but just looked so small. I'm sure more would be provided if requested. Soup and salad are extra but entrees include starch and vegetable. Couple at next table received their entrees before us, despite having arrived later. Had to wave to busboy for more water, temperature of the room was too warm and we were parched. However, all in all a good experience, despite some annoyances.

This was third or fourth time at this restaurant. It was the first time our experience was anything less than stellar. Our service was slow to the extreme. We were seated upstairs and our waitress had our table and one other there and, I presume, some number of tables downstairs. For that reason I was prepared to cut her some slack. However, we waited over an hour to get our entrees. A table next to us at which there was a family/group of at least 10, with a different waitress, was seated after us and received their appetizers and their food before we got our appetizers. Every aspect of our meal took far too long.
In addition, while my wife enjoyed her dinner, I had the salmon and it was bland. All in all, not an enjoyable Valentine’s Day.

Ok. I had high expectations for The Little Tuna because we have been here multiple times and have always enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service. Well over the course of the past year or so this place has really slipped.

Overall, serious food misses, poor service and absent management. At the price that Little Tuna charges, I would opt for going to a diner and pocket the extra cash for another restaurant.
