Having dinner inside an old firehouse was cool! Although it has been renovated, the layout is still intact. The menu has both sushi and more traditional options (sandwiches, burgers, soup, salad etc). The sushi is not traditional, more of a fusion style, mixing Japanese with...More

The sushi was alright, but too expensive for what you get. The atmosphere was nice, clean restaurant with an open concept. We had the bananas foster for dessert and it just didn't wow any of us. No redeeming flavour

Lovely old firehouse with varied menu. The restaurant was very busy at lunch time. Try the pepper fries and crab cakes. The location is on the edge of downtown and their big windows allow a nice view down to the harbour.

Located in a renovated firehouse overlooking Nanaimo, this restaurant/bar delivers a slice of sophistication without pretense. The food was delicious, nicely presented, and the waitstaff was friendly and knowledgeable. Call ahead for reservations, waits can be long.

Yes they do! We had a friend who is celiac when we visited and she was pleased. It's not for me but their sushi menu was quite extensive as well.

I think they would definetely have the space but you may have to rent out the entire restaurant. I believe they have an extra upper floor extra to their main dining room.
