Fine Dining in a quiet refined atmosphere

My wife and I enjoyed several delicious meals here over the years. I particularly like how they kept the character of the older homes when they established the restaurant / hotel. We like to start with a drink in their comfortable wing back chairs sipping on glen breton single malt whisky. Never... read more

We continue to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere, varied menu, delightful presentation, great service and delicious offerings at Stories. It has been our favourite place for many many years and it does not disappoint. From the relaxing library bar, wonderful for a cocktail before dinner, to the intimate and tastefully decorated dining rooms, it offers a lovely dining experience.

I've been to Stories at least a half-dozen times. It's the most exquisite dining experience in town. The preparation is classic, the ingredients top notch and the service superb. Best fine dining in Halifax

VALENTINES DINNER, arranged for us by my lovely lady who is a local.

We booked reservations mid-week in mid-February so it wasn't busy. Service was excellent. We ordered scallops as well as crab cakes for starters. Both were superb, but the scallops deserve to be their signature appetizer. Our mains were breast of duck and the Icelandic char; both done to perfection. Desserts were the flourless chocolate cake and the pineapple star anise... More

We had a larger party (seven) in one of the two dining rooms, and a dedicated waitstaff. She was pleasant and humorous and helped guide a group of somewhat interesting diet needs through the menu and wine choices (several members of our part had food allergies). Without realizing it, we had stumbled back into a restaurant that three of our... More

My wife and I went there for dinner and loved it. We have visited many restaurants in Halifax and enjoyed many fine meals, but dinner at Stories was the best yet. The scallop appetizer was phenomenal. For the main course I had guinea hen and my wife had steak; both were superb. We finished with coffee (excellent) but did not... More
