Although known for its sushi, which I tried and loved...so very FRESH! We were on our family vacation and just decided to stop and try it...so very glad we did. We had our 15 y/o son and 5 y/o daughter so you can see how challenging it can be for us to find a place that suits us all! Everything... More

We visited this restaurant as it was close to the city center and we did not want a trek to the suburbs to eat at one of the chains. This restaurant serves sushi and North American cuisine. The service here was brutal. The food was an epic disaster. We tgought we would order sushi appetizers. The sushi is some type... More

I enjoyed my meal at the firehouse grill. I ordered two sushi rolls and had enough to have some for lunch the next day. It is one of my favourite places to have dinner in nanaimo.

The food is excellent and plentiful, and the drinks & wine are generous and reasonably priced. We enjoy sitting at the bar and interacting with the young, enthusiastic sushi chefs and watch the flow between the front counter chefs and the kitchen. The “Kitchen Sink” salad is just what it sounds like, and its delicious. Corn bread instead of croutons... More

you have to go there and try the sushi!! It is so fresh and if you leave it up to the chef you will be pleasantly surprised as what he will put together for you!!! There is much more then sushi served here as well. The service is great and the restaurant is beautiful. (the bathroom is super tiny however)

The Firehouse Grill offers good service and a good menu. It also offers a good selection of sushi which I have not yet tried and it has a very good view of down town. The one problem is that I could not find handicapped access.

We go to the Firehouse Grill every few weeks, and have the Chef's choice which always a surprise! Food is always fresh and seasonal. It can quite noisy so book reservations and if you are lucky get a booth which is quieter, Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the different food items.

came here with friends after a golf game, on a week night. had been here once before, a long time ago, for lunch, don't recall being enamored by it. it was busy and noisy, possibly due to the lovely warm, sunny spring day, which added a good feel to it. as described by the name, it's in an old firehall,...

Food and service were excellent; however it is difficult to carry on a quiet conversation due to the acoustical properties of the building. (love that you can order 1/2 servings)

Everything was good but found it a little noisy for talking. Food was plentiful and very attractive.
