Everyone ordered different dishes and a fine wine made for a great meal . This is right in the heart of downtown in easy walking distance from the hotels and... read more

We love it. Just keep going and going. The scallops appetizer wrapped in rice paper cannot be found anywhere else. Beautiful, quaint restaurant and very nice staff.

The food is excellent, well served in an informal atmosphere. I enjoyed the guinea hen breast which was excellent. Another of our party had the elk loin with boars shepherd pie which was also outstanding. A delightful unhurried evening accompanied with excellent wine and outstanding service.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary dinner at Stories and were very pleased that we did. The server (Eleanor) was excellent ... friendly and helpful with menu recommendations and very attentive to our needs. She knew it was our anniversary and offered us a glass of champagne to start which was a classy touch. For appetizers, I... More

We both had a starter and a main dish. For the starters we had the panned seared, rice paper wrapped sea scallops, ginger sesame vinaigrette and Sauteed queen crab cake, avocado, smoked jalapeno lime crema. The scallops were particularly good and both starters could have been meals alone. Watch out for the bread…it so good and hard to stop eating. Our... More

Had two great meals here. Managed to eat all three courses but was very full! I am a non fish eater but there was plenty of meat choices. We stayed a week at the hotel, just a pity the menu didn't change in the time as we might have ate here more.

We celebrated our Dalhousie School of Nursing 40th Reunion at this beautiful cozy restaurant. The staff and cook went out of their way to make our reunion memorable. We enjoyed a special menu that was definitely one of the best meals I have ever had! I would highly recommend this fabulous restaurant for a special occasion. Lots of great stories... More
