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.

We loved everything from the food, to the ambience, the timing of the service. We would recommend this even if one has to drive in Halifax (which is a pain) to get to it.

We had dinner with some visitors and were very impressed with the quality of the food and the intimate dining room. It is certainly a lovely restaurant but rather pricey.

We arrived for a stay at the Halliburton and found they had one last reservation for dinner that night and so we grabbed it, not wanting to hit town and then try and navigate finding a restaurant at 7:00. The wait staff was incredible - helpful, friendly, and very willing to accommodate dietary restrictions. I was disappointed that they had... More

We were pleasantly surprised to be able to book a table at Stories upon our Saturday evening check-in to the Halliburton. The chef was informed of special dietary restrictions and was pleased to accommodate on short notice. The food was creative and locally-sourced - and delicious. The atmosphere is relaxing and intimate. A great find in Halifax.

A very fine restaurant indeed. Our friends took us to this restaurant and it was amazing. The scallop starter was just a die for! My wife had the duck and I had beef, both were outstanding. For dessert we had the chocolate. It was the best chocolate dessert I have every eaten. Our server was friendly, helpful and very timely.

The small boutique Hotel has a nice little dining room with about 5 tables in it . We were a group of 4 and had a wonderful dinner there . Everyone ordered different dishes and a fine wine made for a great meal . This is right in the heart of downtown in easy walking distance from the hotels and... More

We love it. Just keep going and going. The scallops appetizer wrapped in rice paper cannot be found anywhere else. Beautiful, quaint restaurant and very nice staff.

The food is excellent, well served in an informal atmosphere. I enjoyed the guinea hen breast which was excellent. Another of our party had the elk loin with boars shepherd pie which was also outstanding. A delightful unhurried evening accompanied with excellent wine and outstanding service.
