Located in a renovated firehouse overlooking Nanaimo, this restaurant/bar delivers a slice of sophistication without pretense. The food was delicious, nicely presented, and the waitstaff was friendly and knowledgeable. Call ahead for reservations, waits can be long.

My husband ordered the sushi platter and let them design two creative rolls. They were very flavourful and if your feeling a little daring this is the place for you. The menu had other items for those who want something other than sushi and the...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.
