First off, the name of this restaurant is misleading , Its called the Firehouse Grill, it gives the impression of fire grilled food , But I don't even think there is a grill in the kitchen , At least not according to the menu , which is mostly Sushi and other Japanese inspired food which was not what I was...

First time ever going to this restaurant. It was my birthday dinner with my daughter and her fiance. The name "Firehouse Grill" would indicate the restaurant would actually have a great deal of grilled items on the menu; but this wasn't the case. There were a lot of seafood dishes on the menu, which I don't eat. Ordered a glass... More

I am pretty open minded and not one to complain but this place has it all wrong. From the outside you see the name in an old brick rustic building. Firehouse to me suggests use of fire (I know the history of the building being an old firehouse) however you still think it would have a fire based food in... More

Absolutely love this place! This old firehall turned into a restaurant is very charming to say the least. Soon as we walked in we were greeted by the sushi chefs and what turned out to be our wonderful server Christy. Christy turned out to be one of the best servers I have had in a very long time, much appreciated... More

Wish I could give this place a better review. It's such a great space and always seems to have a fun buzz about it but the food is not always there and the service is spotty. I'm not a great fan of their sushi, as I find it mostly over sauced, but their Tuna Tataki has been excellent! Unfortunately the... More

I have been there several times and have always ordered sushi, which is all I can really comment on. It is very tasty and the portions are adequate. Parking is in the street right outside the restaurant, have never had a problem with service and all in all, it has been a good experience.

We shared one of the combination sushi plates and a bottle of house wine and found that that was lots for us. The sushi was very tasty and fresh, among the best in Nanaimo which has several excellent sushi places. Nice view and excellent service. The server looking after us really understood customer service, good advice and there whenever we... More

The quality was OK but nothing special. Our table had a variety of entrees and while no one was wowed, it was satisfactory. I think we will keep looking for our special place.

Great food and huge menu with so many choices! The sushi is incredibly inventive and super tasty. Burger was one of the best I've had! Would definitely return next time we're in Nanaimo.

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
