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.

Usually cities this far from the coast produce sushi that is generally not as fresh as coastal towns. I would say this is the best sushi I have had in the Okanagan hands down, comparable to Vancouver sushi!

My boyfriend and I visited Kelowna from Calgary and could not leave BC without having any of their fish in sushi form so I looked up "Best sushi places in Kelowna" and sure enough this place came up. Oh man, did they deliver. Every single piece of sashimi tasted fresh and melted in your mouth. The rolls were beautifully presented... More

This is a great place to go for sushi and Japanese food. The prices are amazing for what you are getting, the atmosphere is unique and modern with traditional elements. The food is always great and the staff friendly. Amazing place for lunch or dinner. Try the drinks and dessert, they add to a great meal!
