A wonderful evening with old friends and the food did not disappoint. Service and staff were great. We ordered a lot of different dishes I would not normally order on my own and every one of them were interesting and delicious. I would recommend the restaurant and will definitely be going back.

Our most favourite sushi restaurant in the Okanagan Valley. Cheerful and knowledgeable waiter or waittress each time we have been to the "Bluetail".

Heard great things, but so very disappointed. Atmosphere is great, looks really nice, perfect for date night! Staff can't understand or speak English fluently. Major problem when it comes to ordering. Our waitress brought us the wrong food but was very persistent that it was what was ordered. After I clearly told her I couldn't eat all types of seafood....

Ordered the sashimi plate with nigiri. Fish was fresh tasting and good variety. Biggest plus was the attention to detail by the server. She did a great job, and was very pleasant.

Our favourite restaurant in Kelowna! We frequent this restaurant regularly and have never been disappointed. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The ebi sunamono is the best I've ever had, and our meal is never complete without a red dragon roll. Everything is beautifully prepared (we often take photos of the food presentation) and it's all so very tasty!... More

Since my first discovery of Blue Tail back in October, I now come here for lunch at least once every two weeks. I always order the oysters 3 ways because they are ALWAYS fresh and delicious. I'm a pretty good regular for their protein roll. Service is sometimes a hit and miss and the décor could use some clean up... More

My husband and I have gone gluten-free for health reasons. Not only did we get gluten-free soy sauce, but they went out of their way to ensure that all the ingredients were also gluten-free (for example, imitation crab has gluten in it). Best service ever! And the sushi...fantastic!!!

Stopped in for a late snack and was extremely impressed that the service and more importantly the food was beyond the recommendations that we had received from friends. You must try the oysters 3 ways, not to be missed. Can't wait to return with more friends to try even more of the unique items. The only complaint that I had... More

Stopped in here a few times and repeatedly enjoyed it. Nice variations of items I was already familiar with, as well as new twists
