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

Server: excellent. Food: awesome! Atmosphere: great! Location: easy downtown walk, near the waterfront. It's actually in Haliburton House on Morris Street Cost: high but worth every cent Starting with the appetizers, the crab cakes were the best ever, and the Hants county greens with lamb, goat's cheese tapenade and heirloom tomatoes was excellent. The Mondavi red Pinot Noir was a... More

We gathered for a pre-wedding meal at Stories and it was lovely. Service was top-notch and the private room worked well. Chef seemed a little rushed and insisted we order desserts when we ordered our meal and the waitress told us he was in a hurry to go home. The food was very good but not in the best ever... More

She read our table well with what we needed and allowed us the time to talk when it was appropriate. Very knowledgeable. Top marks. The meal and wine were spectacular! Crab cakes were fabulous, but the scallops... More

We had just a beautiful evening at Stories, the food was above and beyond. The chef and his staff put together the most spectacular flavors and combinations you could ever think of. I had the scallops and duck as a main, they where just beyond, you enjoyed every bit and you savor it so much you want it too last.... More

I stopped by for a quick lunch, I had just about an hour to eat so I went for the crab cakes. Delicious!!! I'm very picky when it comes to seafood and these crab cakes were to die for. Definitely recommend it.
