A small, intimate restaurant part of the Halliburton Inn serves wonderfully delicious and well-prepared meals. I enjoyed delicious crabcakes, chock full of fresh crab and salmon followed by melt-in-your-mouth tenderloin while my husband started with the scallops (perfectly grilled but the rice paper wrapping was too soggy) and the bass brilliantly prepared. I'd definitely return when I'm next in Halifax.

Loved the Crab Cakes with avocado and smoked jalapeno lime crema and followed it with Bison Hangar Steak on a potato parsnip pave with mushroom ragout and seasonal vegetables. A very rich dish full of flavour. Excellent, friendly and efficient service, very knowledgeable staff.

After all the hype, we found Stories to be just above average with some glaring deficiencies. I started with their crab cake appetizer. That may have been my mistake. Crab meat is far better when served cold with mayo'. There's not a lot you can do to crab cakes, except destroy them with too much filler, peppers or other flavourings... More

Stories is a fairly small, narrow restaurant off the lobby of the small Haliburton Hotel. It was quite quiet the mid-week night I dined there--I think there were no more than 9 of us there by the time I left shortly before 8pm. It should be busier! The menu is limited to just two sections: a starter/appetizer and a main... More

For some reason, when we’re looking for a nice place for a special meal, we rarely think of Stories. We’ve only been there twice in the past decade. Not sure why, because the food there is amazing. In fact, from our recent visit, I still retain the memory of the superb mushroom soup starter that included lamb and a piece... More

The plating of dishes is very beautiful and dishes are cooked with many falvours , which is I like. Lots of Asian ingredients added the diversity of their food. Will go there next time.

I ate here on valentines day and we had a wonderful experience. The restaurant is small and homely with a fantastic atmosphere. The special valentines menu provided lots of choice and we were both very impressed by the standard of food we were served. Probably the best meal I've had in Halifax and I've been to quite a few restaurants.... More

Everything, with the exception of the consistently luke warm tea, was great yet again. We ate here as a largish group recently and had the back room which is very nice for a crowd so that you don't feel you are intruding on others. The scallops were to die for! Several different mains were ordered, rod and reel striped bass,... More

Stories is located in the Haliburton Inn, and old building on Morris St. with tons of atmosphere. We went in early January when the tasfefully arranged Christmas lights and decorations were still up. The food was top notch and the bread is made in their own kitchen. Friendly help from our waitress for choosing food and wine pairing.
