Fresh and Delicious!

My daughter used to live in Kelowna so on this visit we went for a late lunch. We ordered the lovers combo for 2 I think it was called. I think it was the best value because it included everything, Miso soup, salad, dumplings, tempura and lots of sushi. We actually had more than we could finish... read more

My partner and I stumbled across this place as it was conveniently across the road from our hotel with not much else around, however this was seriously the best Japanese food we have had, and we even went to Japan in December! The food was extremely fresh and tasty and the staff were excellent and quick. Wish we could return... More

They have a sushi roll that tastes like lasagna (I can't think of the name of it at this moment), which sounds insane but tastes so godly! They also have amazing dynamite, chicken, and california rolls. The environment is really sleek and inviting, and staff are very helpful and kind! Bluetail is my favorite sushi place in Kelowna!

The location is not appealing, on an industrial zone, but the interior is stylish. The service is good and the food delicious. We took the medium Sashimi Sushi platter which contains quite a large amount of fish - of good quality. Also the starters Salmoncado and Tuna Three Ways were quite good. Recommended for sashimi lovers.

I went here with the 2 kids while we were waiting for hubby to fly in (flight delayed, but that's a different story). The server was very attentive, pleasant and prompt. He has to be the happiest server we've met this summer! The food was flavourful, beautifully presented, very reasonably priced and extremely fresh. The kids loved the gyoza, dynamite... More

Visited both the Bistro and the Bistro and Kitchen (new location). The food was fabulous and the service was excellent. We didn't "feel" rushed and yet were in and out in under an hour! If you want a more leisurely dinner...order a plate or two at a time. Reservations for the Commerce location recommended. The new location on Spall is... More

Seeing the reviews, we were quite excited about trying this place. It's definitely ok sushi, but doesn't deserve rave reviews. The restaurant ambiance is a cut above most sushi options in Kelowna, which is why I'd guess it's rated as high as it is, but the sushi itself is not the best available locally. So it depends on if you... More

I was visiting my brother and his wife who have lived in Kelowna many years. Bluetail Sushi Bistro is one of a small handful of their 'regular' and favorite restaurants in Kelowna - and they can afford to go ANYWHERE, and my sister in law is a gourmet chef herself, clearly! My brother and I each ordered an entrée sized,... More

The sushi is average, don't compare this to any sushi restaurants in Vancouver. The price is very cheap..

A friend recommended we visit and I was not disappointed! Classy restaurant with beautiful presentation. Three of us sampled six rolls with and few starters, all of which were excellent. Can't beat Bluetail, will definitely be back!
