We love the Tuna we go all the time. The one thing I was disappointed in was when we made our reservation I wanted and outside table. When we arrived it said they dont take reservations for outside. This isn't stated anywhere on the site. They still accommodated us and got us outside. I just want to give other people the knowledge that they dont take reservations for outside.

Love the sushi, and there are menu options for everyone in the family. Fun atmosphere by the water, live music on the weekends. Cool spot for casual dining or special occasions. Service is always overwhelmed, so expect to do a lot of waiting. Average of 2 to 3 hours for party of 5. Rough for parents with toddlers.

We had a group of 8 and were able to sit outside which was very nice. But, on a Wednesday night the service was slow. Generally the food was good, not great. Still, a nice place to sit in the water and relax with friends.

I really wanted to like this restaurant. Menu sounded great and great location. Unfortunately it took forever for the food to come and then when it came it was not good. 2 of our guests retire their food back and I was ready too. Even the kids meal weren’t good. Perhaps because it was Mother’s Day but for a restaurant that has gong through holidays before they could have been prepared

Our party of 5 had reservations for mothers day. It was very busy but we didnt have to wait long after our reserved time to be seated. I ordered the shrimp and scallop alfredo. They brought me shrimp scampi. My waitress came around a few minutes later and I told her I had the wrong dish. She quickly corrected the error. The shrimp and scallop alfredo was delicious! My husband ordered the royal steamed platter. He said everything was delicious but they left out the potatoes and clams that were supposed to come with it. We had almost finished eating before my childrens sushi rolls arrived to the table. The waitress never came back around to asked if we needed refills on our drinks, which we did. It was our first visit here. The food was great. I will eat there again. Hopefully the service will be better on a day thats not so busy. An added bonus is they have their complete menu with prices online.

Another lovely Easter Brunch at Twisted Tuna! This was our family’s 3rd year getting together for Easter Brunch at Twisted Tuna- it was delicious and everyone loved their meal. The night before, I called to attempt to add another 2 people to the reservation I had made weeks prior, on-line, and learned they didn’t have my reservation. The manager, Michelle, got on the phone with me and worked it out for our party of 10! She was amazing and we’ll be back next Easter- in addition to our visits through out the rest of the year!

Service was OK. Had a 6:30 reservation arrived 15 minutes early. Did not get seated until 7:05. What’s the point of having a reservation.

the table was waiting and the food good. However, the noise level was totally unacceptable for me, my wife and our guests. Hard to communicate between ourselves as to our waitress. For that reason, I would not recommend the restaurant to friends and will certainly hesitate to return.

Met with friends we haven’t seen in several years. Sat upstairs and told waiter (Cody) we’d like to chat for a while and he was great. Food was good and the seating upstairs seemed to be reserved for groups so a leisurely dinner did not seem to be a problem, at least for Cody. He was super!

Great food in a wonderful setting. We ate in the large room upstairs which is very good for large groups. (However, it was chilly in the room.) Outstanding views of the marina. Our server, Cody, was outstanding and a lot of fun.

It is bar food and overpriced. It is very noisy. I went there for my birthday and the waiter was very upsetting. I ordered steamed clams, for $12. I only got nine clams and told him. And he said to me “what do you want me to do about it? “I said you tell me, you work here, your not me.” He asked me if I wanted a piece of chocolate cake. No I didn’t want chocolate cake —— I ordered dozen clams. Anyway at the end of the meal he brought me three more tiny clams. No thoughtfulness whatsoever.

We had a large party that they put in their upstairs space - there were 12 of us and I had requested 2 tables of 6 instead of a large table for everyone. They put us together at one table. That would’ve been fine, except that we waited two hours after ordering before our dinner was served. I understand of the kitchen gets backed up, but don’t take the reservations if you can’t accommodate the numbers of people in your restaurant. We will never return here again. Also, the food was just so-so and some of it was dry and it obviously had been waiting in the kitchen while other orders were being finished. I suppose if you could sit at a two-top by the bar downstairs and have a quick bite this place is fine. But if there’s any more of you, I would say stay away from this place. It’s hard not to feel that they take as many reservations as they can to make a buck, and don’t care about whether they can accommodate the numbers.

Restaurant does not accommodate requests for outside seating despite being an option on opentable. Super loud inside, dirty windows inside covered in sauce. Despite reservation, was not seated for another 25 minutes and in a terrible bar corner. Could not hear companions talk. Good waitress however (situation no fault of overworked table staff). Opentable is of no value to this establishment, so beware.

Very disappointing dining experience. We made reservations for a special brunch for my Mom's birthday. We were the first table to be seated and while our waitress brought us our drinks quickly, she seemed to forget about us because we waited for her to take our order for 45 minutes. She never came back to refill our drinks and we had to go to the bar to request a refill. She was no where to be found, so we couldn't even flag her down for assistance. To top it off, she got 2 of our orders completely wrong, but we decided not to address it because we figured we would be there for another hour waiting to eat. This totally ruined a very special birthday celebration.

The meals my wife had were good, I have been getting the tuna tacos for years and as usual the pieces of tuna were large and tasty, however the taco shells seem to be getting much smaller. Any further reduction in size and I say why bother. We made reservations for six and are waitress seemed perturbed that 2 of our party were delayed and that we were waiting to order our meal when they arrived.

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.
