Nice ambiance. Service was terribly slow. Our food was cold and lacked appeal.

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

We've been before, but had horrible service and even the manager came to check on our table and ran away like she was scared.

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.

Even with a reservation we waited 20 min for a table, 2 hours after we ordered our food, we still had not recieved it. The manager came out and said it wasnt his fault and it will be out soon....we left without eating 2 1/2 hours later.

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.

Party of 8 celebrating 2 birthdays. Service was very attentive, provided very good recommendations. All courses served in unison. Everyone enjoyed their raw to cooked and in between dishes. Upstairs space is underwhelming when compared to 1st floor, very hotel banquet-roomish.

Met some friends as they like to keep it casual and have some frosty drinks so this was perfect. It’s waterfront with live music and very well priced food and drinks. They had the best fries (twisted fries) ever & service was great. They had complementary valet parking as well. A must try!

The Tuna is a great casual place for lunch & dinner. The food is basic with a touch of creativity.
The servers have always been good with excellent attitudes.
We highly recommend for casual dining.

This visit was for my husbands surprise birthday party. When my guest first arrived they wouldn’t seat them until the entire party was there AFTER I had called and explained it was a surprise. I had my guests calling me telling me that the staff was being rude about seating them before we got there, but then finally sat them. Food was good but WAY over salted. We had a party of 14 for my husbands surprise party and it could have been better. Service was VERY slow, we were there for almost 4 hours, most of the time waiting for food, looking for our server, or clearing our own table. Some of the seafood was fishy and my guests could not finish their dinner. We would have told the server, but like I said she was absent most of the time. Some of my guest either got the wrong food or not at all. We had to go to the bar for drinks as our server was never to be seen and would disappear for lengths of time. We’ve been here before and it was always good, as long as your group is SMALL! We spoke to the manager who only offered an apology, didn’t do much else, he made excuses for the server.

One person in our party did not get his food until everyone else was done. The sides he was told were different than the ones he received. He did not eat the sides. Fish was supposed to be blackened and was plain.

There were 6 of us for a monthly dinner for us Miami ladies who have moved up in the past 17 years. The food and variety on the menu and nightly specials sounded so good it was difficult to choose. And we did all share two different desserts. We will be back.

The bar staff needs additional training. Not attentive . They were more of a beer and shot server and not good at cocktails.
The food servers were good but due to their young age, they were a bit overwhelmed.
The was good. The steaks are over priced.
