Once a unique and energetic place with great food, drinks and service has really changed in the past few years. The sushi, once fabulous, is nothing out of the ordinary now, the service, once outstanding, now indifferent and disinterested. The atmosphere, once electric, now listless....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!!

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.
