Not black rice!

My friend ordered black rice. Our server said no problem but it's an extra dollar charge per roll. So when the two rolls came they were just white rice rolled in black sesame seeds! My rolls were covered in sesame seeds as well but I didn't have to pay two bucks for it! I'm sorry but if you're... read more

Located a little out of the way on Hwy 97, sushi is so good and worth the drive for us. It's busy which keeps it always fresh. Love the gomi, nice twist!

I really don't want everyone else to find out about this place, but I will say it is about the only place I can truly give 5 stars, it covered everything....and I went twice in one week! Service was excellent, not too much and not ignoring us either. The first time we lounged for a couple of hours and drank... More

Had the small sashimi and sushi platter. There were eight pieces of sushi and ten pieces of sashimi consisted of two types of salmon and two types of tuna. Though I wished there were more varieties of fish, the fish was fairly fresh. The rice for the sushi was a bit dried up, however. The atomosphere was casual but romantic.... More

Stopped in here after reading Trip Advisor reviews. I'm glad I did. After being seated I was quickly presented with a glass of ice water and a cup of Green Tea - without being asked. When the waitress took my order she took the time to ask what I liked and then passed it along to the kitchen. I ordered... More

Wow, is the word for our experience tonight. We made a reservation and glad we did as the restaurant was full. We were seated and the attentive service never ended. Drinks and water right away and appetizers of spicy miso soup, seafood tempura with lobster and sashimi. I'm not a big fan of sashimi but this was awesome. The lemon... More

We've been going to Bluetail since it opened. We order the sushi combo every time. It's the best all around Japanese meal and comes out in stages. You can't go wrong with this presentation. The atmosphere is also very calming after a long day. Love, love, love this place.
