Enjoyed dinner at the Firehouse while on business. The sports bar has an abundance of well placed screens, covering a variety of sporting events continually. The food (especially the fish and chips) was extremely well prepared. Service was very good, and the prices were reasonable.

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

Sushi presentation is exceptional! The killer K, volcano roll and fighting budda is my favourite. You can ask for them deep fried if you want an extra crisp to it. If you’re feeling adventurous get the chefs choice and it will be a surprise! Top...More

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.
