We took our out of town guests here for dinner to sample the sushi, among other dishes. We chose tempura veggies and prawns, caesar salad and buffalo shrimp for appies. All were delicious and made to perfection. The buffalo shrimp were exceptionally divine, a tasty alternative to chicken... read more

Great atmosphere, great prices, great sushi! I have eaten at the Firehouse at least 4 different times now with both family and friends and have loved each experience. It only took 2 visits to become a personal favourite!

I have been the the firehouse many times and have never been disappointed. If you are into fusion type sushi then this is the place for you! This time ee ordered the 30$ chef's choice option and it comes with 2 rolls and a side. The chef creates whatever he wants, needless to say it was some of the best... More

Our dinners and desserts were really tasty. You might want to make a reservation, as we were lucky to find seats at the bar.

My husband has wanted me to go to this restaurant for months. I went years ago and as a result of that visit have not returned until now. The hostess was and arrogant little twit and the waitress's attitude was not much better. It was almost a bother to them to have to serve us. The restaurant was not that... 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 :(
