Everything was wonderful except the eggplant dish I had was undercooked. The eggplant was hard in the middle. But the rest of the food service and ambiance was delightful.

Fantastic appetizers. We have tried many, but they Tuba Sampler covers all the bases. Their lamb is out of this world! Their Turkish wines are limited, but I wouldn't know the difference to be able to judge.

Service was disappointing. Long wait time (>30 minutes) despite reservation. No attention paid to mitigate for the long delay-- eg. we were not offered water as we waited, or a glass of wine, or an appetizer on the house. In fact, when we were finally seated noone came to take our order or tell us the specials (I had to ask myself about the specials) and, during our meal, the waitress asked us to get up and push our tables to the side to seat another group next to us. Despite me expressing we were unhappy about the wait, the restaurant staff did nothing to make us feel better, except at the very end of the meal giving us a coupon for $20 off the next visit (I will not be returning there.) . While the food is quiet delicious, paying high prices and wasting time on such a sub-par experience does not make for a pleasant evening. I was so, so disappointed and do not recommend this place to other diners for a dine-in experience.

It was my wife’s birthday and she loves to have dinner at Tuba! The service is always exceptional from the entire staff! The food is excellent as well! They made it very special bringing out a beautiful decorated plate with a cake for her! Thank you as always for the great experience!

The food was good. Really good actually, but maybe not quite living up to the hype. Or maybe my table ordered the wrong things... we all felt the food was a bit heavy, but maybe that is typically Turkish? I'd definitely go back to try a few other options. The service was rushed and we were given the check the same time our dessert arrived and our servers inquired twice more if we needed anything else... clearly hurrying us along as they had a wait for tables.

This is one of my GO TO restaurants. I live in SF and am always drawn to it. The classic simple salad is, by far, the best in SF. the rest of the menu is standard....but quite good.

The hummus and phiilo dough stuffed with feta cheese appetizers were very tasty. Also recommend the shrimp, beef and lamb kebob and the beef and lamb kebob wrapped in lavash bread. Because it was a BD celebration they serve this yummy chocolate dessert and sing happy birthday to you! Very cozy dining.

Food was AMAZING. We came on Christmas Eve. Had a reservation for 12 people. Not one sad face. Food was fresh, delicious, and no one felt like they overpaid for anything. It’s a true gem!!

I chose this place without knowing much about it.
We needed a place with vegetarian options and it proved to be a real find! We loved the tasting plates, and the service was fantastic. I will definitely return and would have no qualms about recommending the place to friends.

Staff was genuinely cordial, helpful, attentive, KIND. The full meze sampler plate was outstanding. I would return for that one anytime! Skewered lamb with vegetables was lovely with dipping sauce. Desserts were all fun for my guests - chocolate pyramid and shredded filo with cheese, so very tasty. Pomegranate juice was refreshing. Mint tea with fresh lemon on a beautiful small saucer was charming. Food presentation was festive, a treat for my guests.

Food was amazing. We tried each of the two Turkish rosés and they were delicious. I had no idea that Turkey made good wines. The server was incredible. She was so friendly and engaging. She really made us feel welcome.

I celebrated my birthday at Tuba with a group of friends. Sharing mezzes and entrées was great, the waitress suggested the right amount of food, and everyone was happy at the end. However, the restaurant was packed with groups and very loud, so this place is not great to have a deep conversation.
