We made a reservation from the US 1 month before our special "fine dining" evening. This reservation was confirmed with an email exchange from Lindsay at the Halliburton.

We are very embarrassed that these guests were inconvenienced and disappointed. I have promptly contacted this guest by telephone to offer my apology. She was understandably dismayed but, pleased to hear that we take the incident seriously. Unfortunately (but infrequently) human error happens.

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.
