I live in Nanaimo and this place is honestly my favourite restaurant. It has something for everyone. My favourite is the Firehouse roll, it’s amazing. It’s my “go to” restaurant. You can also call ahead and order for pickup. You’ve gotta try this place.

There was almost nothing on the menu that was vegetarian (let alone vegan), and the prices of the food were very high. The service was friendly, and the sunny windows were lovely during sunset. Overall tasty, but they don't seem conscious about changes food preferences....More

Well it was lunch time but the noise in general was deafening. The burgers were overcooked and the service slow (servers were great but short one person) compared to other local restaurants. We'll try at 11 AM next time, to see if it improves. Not...More

This restaurant has everything I am looking for in a dining experience. Great building and atmosphere, wonderful staff and food beautifully prepared, but for some reason, I just haven't found anything I like here despite several visits. The sushi is wonderful but it is all...More

Our server was attentive and listened to my requests for gluten-free information about the menu. But he still brought me soup with bread on the plate which was disappointing after I had warned him not to put bread on my plate. The gluten free seared...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.
