The last time I dined at The Commodore was exactly thirty years ago. Back then it was a pretty run-down old diner. Now it's a trendy night-spot with a great chef! It's been nicely refurbished. The menu is fairly limited, but the choices available are all pretty interesting. I tried the Mushroom Miso "poutine" - Poutine in quotation marks since they used gooey, stringy hard cheese instead of 'curds'. A little messier than a typical poutine, but extremely tasty, nonetheless. The house salad was indeed BRILLIANT, it's alone pretty much worth the price of admission :-)

Gourmet greens, 'candied' pecans (magical in this context), raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, sweet onion, feta... this salad was seriously good! I dunno if it was just because it was ten PM, but I ordered the "small" salad and got a VERY substantial plateful.

Anyway, coffee great, service was friendly and fast. I would have stayed for dessert had not the "entertainment" (apparently it was "Battle of the lost emo acoustic-strumming crooners" night at the Commodore) speedily chased me away.

What a great evening ~ beer at a good price and the food "outstanding" love the Poutine! The three of us shared tapas we enjoyed the yummy house salad served with fresh berries, caramelized pecans; a substantial serving as well as the beef tacos, bruschetta and the best "outstanding" full of flavors Mushroom Miso Poutine. Wonderful local entertainment. Keep up the good work!

We go often to see the live music... always so good. Food is average and service is always great!
We're middle aged and they've got it pegged for us to show up for food or appys and drinks... then around 10pm the live music we love is replaced with a DJ and the club crowd shows up.... our time to walk home... evening enjoyed by all.

It was ok. Average food. The service was good but a bit too much chit chat amongst the staff and not attention to the customers. There was a group of us. My food was totally over cooked, it kinda tasted like it was cooked twice???? A few of the other people in the group said the same thing but some people really liked their food. It's not a big place so it's intimate. Probably won't return as it was very average.

This is my favourite restaurant in Kamloops. The chicken club salad is to die for and the veggie Brie sandwich is also very good. The house salad that comes with the sandwich is the best I have had, with mixed greens, pecans and fresh berries. I've been several times for lunch and the food is consistently delicious and the staff friendly and efficient. For those who like beer; great daily specials.
