Wonderful Dining Experience

All of what we expected. This small restaurant is really good...great food and service. The table for two in the window is the ticket! Started with the charcuterie plate which was wonderful! Our two entrees were the guinea hen and the tuna....both being perfectly prepared. We ended the... read more

We celebrated a significant birthday at Stories, and it exceeded our expectations. All four guests enjoyed their selections, including the well-known scallops in rice paper app. I am still savoring that perfect combo of crunchy rice paper, expertly seared scallop and well-balanced ginger sesame sauce. The steak with the generous blue cheese dollop was perfectly grilled to our specifications, and... More

We arrived at the restaurant a little earlier than expected having spent a long day sightseeing in Halifax and a little hot and bothered! Fortunately we were able to be seated straight away. There are two rooms that can accommodate 10 tables or so. There were three other tables where we were sitting. It's definitely a great place for a... More

Our family of three had a wonderful meal at this quiet, tucked-away little restaurant. The menu changes, but everything we ordered was exceptional. My beef tenderloin entrée was the most flavorful and tender steak I have eaten. My spouse and son favored seafood dishes, which were delicious and perfectly executed. Also outstanding were the crap cake appetizer and berry tart... More

We ate here to enjoy the scallop appetizer that we had last year ... they did not disappoint. Staff members are knowledgable and attentive and each menu item we tried was wonderful ... great job!

Everything was first class about this joint. Service, ambiance, food etc Rare combination of fine dining quality and generous portions. Would go back in a flash. Scallops appetizer and Duck Magret were ridiculously good.

This is likely the best overall meal I have ever experienced. Every aspect of the meal seemed to work together wonderfully for the three of us. We were seated in our own private room. Our waitress was efficient and friendly and answered every question that we had patiently. The meal was not rushed. Everything was extremely fresh and flavorful. Not... More

Stories is a small and elegant restaurant in the Halliburton historic building. The food is absolutely top-notch. Make sure you book beforehand to avoid disappointment.

Had goats cheese starter, salmon and flourless chocolate cake. My friend had crab cakes, duck and raspberry tart. All food was well presented and tasty. Can't quite say why it didn't knock my socks off....... It just didn't. However, I'd go back and more importantly would recommend, so I guess I was just difficult to please today.
