The Little Tuna Ratings and Reviews
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 had never been to the little Tuna, my date had been there and she said I had to try the lobster bisque. Well it was delicious, definitely in the top two bisques I’ve tasted. The rest of the meal was outstanding, the service was great. We will definitely visit again.
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.
Our experience was colored by VERY SLOW service. Our waiter was well versed on the menu, and very enthusiastic. But after serving our appetizers, we waited way too long for our entrees (easily over 30 minutes) and one entree only appeared after we grabbed our waiter and even then waited another 10 minutes. Some of the food wasn't hot. After eating we waited another 30 minutes before being offered desert/coffee, and then it took forever to get our check and credit cards processed. We like a casual dining experience, but after sitting on the hard seats for over 3 hours we were eager to leave. The food was good..... but something was clearly amiss with the kitchen and/or serving help.
We went for the Early Bird 3-course special, and it was a delight. The lobster bisque was marvelous, the rolls freshly baked, the salad crisp ... and that was before the main course, which also excelled. Soy-flavored salmon was perfectly cooked.
It’s a BYO restaurant, and we lingered over our wine for some much-enjoyed conversation. Our waitress Kelly was pleasant, attentive, and not pushy.
The only factor that might have proved difficult was noise; when we first arrived, with more tables occupied, it was a bit noisy. It’s a small restaurant and could benefit from some sound-baffling. On a cold winter evening, however, as tables emptied, that was not a problem.
On the whole, I would highly recommend the restaurant for excellent food, reasonable prices, and a very gracious staff. We look forward to returning.
Waited 1/2 hour for table,even though we had a reservation. Things moving very slow, seemed to be understaffed for New Year’s Eve . Had to ask for more water and no refill on bread, The waitress asked us if we wanted the check , but I wanted dessert so I had to ask her about that. I also wanted some tea but she left to place the dessert order so I forgo the tea because it would have taken even longer.Dinner itself okay ,good value for price .
This place used to be good. Highlights were the nice hostess and warm bread. However, being seated in front of the door on frigid New Years Eve while incoming patrons held the door open was not fun. Also, the food was nothing really special. I could have eaten a better meal for 2/3 the price at a better chain seafood restaurant.
Staff was very friendly and accommodating. They were welcoming and patient. The server gave our group of 5 older ladies all the time we wanted to decide on what to order. The food was very tasty and arrived in a timely manner.
We never felt rushed. After our luncheon the server was kind enough to act as photographer for group pictures. We will definitely make Little Tuna a favorite restaurant for future visits.
Dinner was excellent. We all ordered from the “3 courses for $19.99” and it did not disappoint. Soup (lobster bisque) was delicious. Caesar salad was a nice size portion. My entree was flatiron steak with garlic mashed and green beans. Steak was tender and cooked to perfection. No one left hungry.
We ‘ve lived in town for 30 years jand hadn’t been in for awhile. It was our 29th Anniversary. My husband had the strip steak and was disappointed with the generic seasoning and I had the seafood sampler bake and everything tasted like Old Bay. I couldn’t even really salvage anything for leftovers when I took it home. Maybe others have had better experiences. I just wouldn’t go back.
Was disappointed this last time in. We were party do 4. Reservation was made well in advance and to spit this we got seated 20 mins later than planned - while people arriving behind us were seated. The hostess was not kind, nor rude - just blah and unapologetic. Upon being seated our waitress apologized that we could have no beverages bc they were out of glasswear but as soon as possible she would try to nab us group wine glass and 4 water glasses. 10 mins later we had water and wine. Food was good. I got the pistachio salmon. Was a bit more dry than usual. To me they over booked the restaurant and for this quality was a major slip in service and to a degree food as I know it to usually be much better. Will give another try but wasn’t blown away. Glad the company was excellent and hence still fun.
