Pleasantly surprised to order an appetizer such as the scallops on rice paper, have a main entree such as the duck breast on a rich red wine mole sauce and then have a berry tart. While husband enjoyed a merlot, I enjoyed a cocktail off the latest such menu. Service: excellant Thank you for being part of our introduction to... More

Last night my wife and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary. It was also one of our first big nights out since our daughter was born four months ago. We decided to go to a higher end restaurant then the norm. I have heard about Stories but always kept forgetting to go, now after last night it will never be... More

Excellent food an atmosphere. Decor was lovely and comfortable. The dining room was inviting and relaxing. The wait staff did a great job with making us feel like we've been there numerous times although it was our first visit. Will surely return if we're ever back in Halifax.

We celebrated our 10th anniversary here and as always had a very special evening. Lovely setting, amazing food and the usual friendly, knowledgeable service. We both love game meat and there are very few places that offer more than one option on the menu but Stories comes through for us every time! The Charcuterie (all done in-house) is always a... More

This restaurant is part of an old Inn. The menu is creative and always seems to include at least one game dish. Enjoyed both seafood and poultry items that I ordered here. Reasonable wine list as well.

Quiet and elegant dining experience. The presentation was as spectacular as the taste and the service was among the best.

It's not on the direct route from the habour to the citadel or the public garden, but it is worth a five minutes walk off that well travel route to enjoy a meal at Stories. The service, atmosphere and the food were excellent.

All food items enjoyed by our party of 4 were beautifully presented, tasty, and well described by our knowledgeable server. The wine list is reasonably well stocked, not hugely marked up and the comfortable surroundings including the option of after dinner drinks in the cozy library was great. It is a small venue so reservations definitely recommended. Prices are reasonable... More

We are tired of LOUD restaurants with tables too close together. This was a pleasant antidote. Stories is adjacent to a lovely inn in downtown Halifax. Menu offerings were inventive and beautifully presented and there were enough choices so that everyone can find something to please. The wine list had selections in every price range and our water glasses and... More
