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

We had a fantastic dinner last night!Our server made several recommendations, all of which we took and we're rewarded with a fabulous meal. 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.

The service was great and the food was excellent. The scallop appetizer is truly memorable and I would highly recommend the duck entree. Quiet, comfortable and intimate - a night to remember!

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.
