A pleasant ambiance

This restaurant is clean, has a nice ambiance and two menus-one specializing in sushi, the other Canadian food. The coffee was lukewarm but, when I mentioned it, the waitress did not hesitate to make a new pot. Our appetizes of avocados stuffed with crabmeat and other goodies were very good. I'd... read more

The girl on the phone rudely laughed at me I wanted to place an order for pickup. She snapped that they were far too busy for that. I don't see as a previous restaurant owner myself how it could be anymore time consuming to make an order to go versus me eating in house.

I've eaten here 4-5 times and have never been disappointed, all menu items are sure to please. I'd rather call my waiters over then be bugged while enjoying my meal, this place rocks!

Service was awful. Took well over an hour for our food which was mediocre. we had empty glasses for 30 minutes which she never offered to refill. Waitress never checked on us and I had to wander around to find her if I needed anything. This place used to be one of my favs :(

Well I've never written a review before but our service just warranted it this time. We've been waiting for over an hour now for our food. Our drinks ran out and our waitress had time to take the empty glass but not another order for drinks. We've watched numerous people make their way to the bar to refill their own... More

They put mayonnaise on sushi. Just saying. Went in for a late lunch on a weekday. Service was mediocre at best and waited way too long for the waitress to take our credit cards. Mayonnaise on sushi?

Best sushi in Nanaimo! The menu is excellent. The magic prawns are amazing and so are the stuffed avocados. They have a great drink menu with amazing Caesars. My favorite restaurant in Nanaimo.

The Firehouse is a very nice restaurant and the food has always appealed to us. On this visit, our first in about 5 years, we were disappointed to wait more than an hour for our meals! Our appetizers were only delivered when we complained, but in fairness, they served us full sized portions of the chowder rather than the cup... More

This restaurant is without question one of the top places to experience in Nanaimo. Beautiful room, excellent service and amazing food. It honestly felt like a big city restaurant.
