Service was slow and spotty. Order of surf (filet Mignon) and turf (lobster tail) was way late and lobster was way undercooked. One of our party finished his drink and wanted another but our server did not come for such a long time that he gave up waiting for her and went to the bar himself to get the drink. We were a party of ten and the table was much too small for comfort. Also, the noise level was so high, we had difficulty conversing.

Very disappointed. Had a party of seven. Ordered food for all. All orders came with the exception of the oysters. My ENTIRE party had eaten before the oysters arrived. When I asked what the problem was I received a lame answer that said, "The special is taking us longer to get the oysters to you". My oysters came after everyone else finished their meal. I ate my oysters there alone. NO COMPENSATION or any other communication was given to me. I felt bad for the waitress who knew my frustration but could do nothing to alleviate it. I believe the manager should have come to the table with apologies and some sort of compensation for the inconvenience suffered by myself and my guests. They were very uncomfortable eating without me and then watching me eat alone. My bill was $280 but I guess that meant nothing. Will never go there again unless something is forthcoming from the establishment. Wrote to them but as of yet have not heard back. VERY POOR CUSTOMER CARE.

Food and atmosphere were very good. We were celebrating two birthdays with seven people. The menu had a large variety of food, something for everyone. We ordered pizza, pasta, seafood, BBQ and a few drinks. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the birthday deserts were delicious and on the house. Definitely worth trying. We would go more often if we weren't 2 hours away. Go Enjoy!

We have gone to this restaurant many times and usually have a decent experience and recommended it too friends. This time was not so good. Our waiter was friendly and courteous but the food took too long, 45 minutes too long and for brunch. It was not that busy so when someone told us it was because of a big party that made us more upset. Not a reasonable excuse for a party of 5 on a slow day. When we finally got our food it was cold. Eggs are not good cold but I didn't send it back because we were hungry. Won't be going back for a while if ever, even though we like the waterfront location.

This is a fabulous restaurant; we were there for the 'Sunday afternoon Sushi Specials" and were able to enjoy high quality sushi at a great discounted price!
This TRULY IS a neighborhood gem.....
Their service is both friendly and professional.

It was a little difficult to find parking but the restaurant does offer valet service. Our waitress was top notch and right on top of things! No one had to ask for a refill on their drinks, the refills seem to magically just show up. There were 9 of us and most of the food was wonderful. A couple of minor complaints but overall we were pleased. I thought the bill was very reasonable. Our table was ready for us when we arrived. We chose Twisted Tuna to celebrate my nephew's 21st birthday as he said it was his favorite restaurant.

I put fair on value because it cost $90 for one dinner and 2 glasses of wine. Little pricey for such a casual place but the food was very good.

Love the Twisted Tuna!! Food is Great, atmosphere is fun happy, (I do not like it upstairs as much) there is no music up there and the noise level always seems higher up there for some reason and you can not just walk up to the bar to get a drink. The décor and overall feel downstairs is more inviting to me. Although I would not turn down anywhere to eat there. Just my preference. They do have a patio upstairs that does overlook the water upstairs as well. ;) Would recommend it to all my friends and do!!! We go there a 4-5 times a month fro dinner. Always great sushi too!!! Miranda is the bomb :)

We went for Sunday Brunch for Fathers Dsy. We were outside and it seemed that the service staff did not either want to go outside to wait on us or just what. We had to honyo the service desk twice to get someone to even get us drinks. We finally decided to go sit by the bar. The waitress did not apologize for the lack of service but just dropped of the bill. Very poor waiting staff. Garrett the bartender outside was great. If he wouldn’t have been so great we would have left. He was the only person that apologized for the bad service prior to him as he saw us just sitting and actually came over to give us water until the waiting staff came. Very disappointed in the service and Garrett was the only one interested in trying to make it better. Won’t go back for quit awhile

9 person party for graduation dinner, was seated upstais and loved the view by the docks,but thats where it ended. Of the 9 dinner plates 3 were returned, another 3 did not enjoy but were to hungry to send back. Waitress tried her best but to no avail. Did not discout any of the returned items and would only give dessert as a consolation. Extremely disappointed, herd many ads for this restaurant and looked foward to a nice evening. Put a damper on what was a joyous day. WILL NOT BE RETURNING AND NOT RECOMMEND!!!!!

We had to wait way too long for a couple of simple dishes. A seared tuna steak and mussels. They came out a long time after the other food. Salad was forgotten. The waiter was doing his best, but he really could not keep up and the kitchen seemed out of sync. We weren’t very impressed given the prices we paid and don’t plan to go back.

Twisted Tuna is surprisingly good. Usually if you have a view of the water, the food is lousy. If you're in a strip mall, the food is good. Ok, I'm exaggerating, but anyway. Sushi consistently fresh and innovative. American food good, not great. We were a large table of 9 upstairs on a very busy night. Server was attentive while very busy. Never missed a beat.

We have been to this restaurant so many times, and this past visit was our last one ever. There was hair in our sushi, hair on our pizza, hair on a plate. The server was absolutely rude and terrible not to just our table, but to all the tables around us. We sat upstairs. We wanted to treat our parents to a very special lunch before they went back north, and this was A terrible experience. The manager did take the pizza and sushi off our bill, but it was just so ridiculous, that we will never be back there again

Disappointed in the whole dining experience. It was a busy night and very crowded so the service was slow, extremely hard to hear anyone at the other end of our table and the meals were all mediocre. There were 2 dishes out of our 7 that were good: the tuna poke and the seafood pasta. Everything else was very mediocre.
