“excellent dinner”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

We ate here our first evening in Halifax when rather jet lagged and it was an excellent beginning to what became a succession of generally wonderful dinners throughout the Maritimes.

It was the most expensive meal we had,but well worth it

“Fresh seasonal food artfully presented in an intimate setting.”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Stories is a small intimate fine dining restaurant which often incorporates out of the ordinary meat and game selections in their menu and fresh line caught local seafood. Menu Selections vary daily based on what ingredients are the freshest available that day. Local ingredients are featured. Service is generally exceptional, the wine list is very good and contains good value wines as well as pricier selections and there is a small dining room that they use for larger groups of 8 or more which gives a very private dining feel.

“This may be my new favourite restaurant!!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We went here for our anniversary, and the atmosphere was wonderful! The food was even better! I started with the lamb tenderloin and greens with a superb olive tapenade and my husband had the crab cakes. I then had the grilled tuna which was one of the best entrees I have ever had. My husband loved the duck, which I had to try as well. All so good! We then decided to get dessert which we usually don't do, they were equally amazing, as was the Stories Specialty coffee. (I had to try it all!)! The wine list was pretty extensive and the service was prompt and personable. We will be back.

“Nice romantic dinner”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Excellent food and service - the duck in cherry sauce was awesome! This restaurant is in an historic house with a small dining room, so it may not be the best pick for a large party. But for couples or smaller groups it offers an intimate setting and a creative menu. The service was very good - attentive, but not intrusive.
