Service is impeccable, food and presentation fantastic and the ambiance is quiet, peaceful and so rare in casual fine dining in North America. Our top Halifax restaurant and we have been to all the "must go" foodie haunts in Hfx

Took my wife here for 30th anniversary and we were not disappointed. The service was great and the atmosphere quaint. The food was well worth the visit. We will be going back soon.

The dinner was amazing from start to finish. Appetizers were encrusted scallops and salad with goat cheese. The encrusted scallops were fabulous with a wonderful sauce. Mains were duck breast, tuna and steak. All were very good but the duck breast was really outstanding. They have a pretty decent wine list and our waitress great advice. The service was exceptional... More

this was an upmarket restaurant with great food to match its reputation. Crab cake starter was very tasty and the main course, beef striploin, was excellent. Although this was a fine dining restaurant, the servings were a decent size. Would recommend it to any lover of good food.

Very much enjoyed dinner at Stories during my stay in Halifax and will definitely return. I recommend the scallops and crab cakes for appetizers and the salmon for a main course paired with their local white wine.

Just celebrated our 13th anniversary here. Couldn't have picked a better place in Halifax. The food was wonderful. I had the duck and my husband had the yellowfin tuna. The service was excellent, fast and a perfect balance of being attentive but not too intrusive for a romantic evening. Decor inside is nice, intimate environment with just a few tables... More
