I was so impressed the first time I had to you with a five star review and then we decided to come back a second time. This restaurant lived up to my first review a second time. We tried a few different rules this time including a volcano roll which comes to the table on fire which was visually impressive... More

I'm the type of person that needs to eat sushi once a week. When my partner in crime and I have enough expendable income and were feeling in a "treat yo self" kind of mood we always head here. Sushi is unreal I've never had anything that wasn't delicious.

Being from Vancouver we eat sushi regularly and are used to some very nice restaurants. The interior is beautifully designed. The ebi and Tako sunomono salad was artfull presented in a lovely plate garnished with fresh blueberry, grape, tomato and strawberry. It really elevated the dish and balanced the acid of the vibegrette. We had a number if chef rolls... More

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
