Delicious food, great service, beautiful plating. We ordered gyozas and assorted tempura to start, both amazing. Then we tried the real crab maki roll and the red dragon roll, which was recommended to us by the server and was really unique and very delicious. And the prices are not too bad either. Highly recommended!

I make a point of going to Bluetail as much as possible. It's always busy because the food is amazing. The staff are prompt in both taking orders and getting your drinks to the table. The food is not far behind. Fresh fresh fresh is what the food is. From their specialty rolls to the Veg Teriyaki that has two... More

The food is fresh and so tasty. It is very busy, go and visit their 2nd location on Spall. Jerome runs a great restaurant.

Cute little blue resto. They have a variety of sushi to choose from. They have fast and efficient service. But the only thing I notice is that tables are close from each other and there's not much of a privacy.

As this was the only restaurant near our hotel, we ate there twice, once takeaway and once in the restaurant. The food was good on both occasions. I had yakosoboa - chicken or beef with noodles in a nice sweet sticky sauce - twice, once with chicken, once with beef. My husband had a beef teriyakii platter. This came with... More

I work out of town for weeks at a time, but when I'm back home in kelowna, there's only one place I have to MAKE SURE I stop in at, and that's bluetail. They make all of their food with love, and flavour. Anything you order is always going to be awesome, and if you don't think it is, you... More

We had a large group of 18 that was easily accomodated. The sushi was excellent and decent priced. The service was also excellent.

Really wanted to like this more than I did. Was with a large group of ladies. Mostly everyone was ordering tempura and rolls. They were pleased overall. Nice light batter. I decided to live large and went for the $30 surf and turf. Good points were nicely cooked salmon and very tender (very small though) tenderloin. Not great parts were... More
