Was here with a group of friends. I had the firehouse roll and hookah roll. The hookah roll was quite small but tasted good. The firehouse roll was nice...again not overly big and not a lot of tuna on top as I expected for price. Had 2 rolls and 2 glasses of wine for $55 with tip. This was my... More

We stopped in for dinner before heading out to see Jesse Roper in Nanaimo. It was a busy Friday night and our experience was wonderful. The service was great, the food was delicious - just what we were expecting as it is always this good!!

We got a couple platters of the chef's choice sushi for take-out to feed 8 people (5 adults and 3 kids). It was delicious and had a great variety of rolls and sashimi. A bit pricey but worth it - sushi was fresh and the mix of different types was awesome! I'd go back for sure!

My university aged son and I had dinner here on short notice and we both came away very impressed. Our chicken wings before dinner were huge, delicious and well presented. Moments later my son devoured his chicken sandwich and I thoroughly enjoyed my half order of fish and chips (cod). The service and ambiance was excellent and the wait staff... More

Had my sushi fix !!!! The firehouse had an excellent selection of fusion sushi, had the Bombay back draft also the black and blue . Very great flavours. Everyone at table was very happy with their food. Would definitely go again even though server was a little slow.

Hard to get five people to agree on where to have lunch but since three of the five had not tried this restaurant it was a go. It has a great setting in an old brick building that was once a fire hall many years ago. The one thing that could be improved is the furniture as the white chairs... More

Maybe it's because we came before the dinner rush. But my first impression was how cold it was. Next thing I noticed was the cheapest IKEA furniture you can buy, basically school desk chairs! We opened the menu to find a 20% hike in prices over the online menu. But because the choices looked good. We decided to stay. Well... More

The location is nice. The service is fantastic, as is the food. I had the Jambalaya and I loved it! Will be back for sure!

We had sushi and of course it was excellent. We were seated upstairs (even though we had a reservation a month ahead of time) and felt that our service was lacking because of it. Out of site, out of mind?

Every visit I've made to the Firehouse Grill has been a amazing. I'd like to mention my third visit, which coincided with my birthday, in particular. During previous visits, co-diner's had order the Chef's choice Sushi platter, and indicated that that was their exclusive choice whenever visiting. Although I'm adventurous, I tend not to be with Sushi, and had tried... More
