Interesting but limited menu. Good service. Cannot fault the food or wine in itself, but we felt it was overpriced for what we had.

You don't get to the top of TA without being special. And Stories is special. Great food. We both had the beef which was absolutely delicious and cooked exactly as we requested. Service is typically Canadian i.e. top draw. But the atmosphere in the small room of four tables was really rather formal and sterile. A bit like eating in the library. Would have rated Stories 5 if only the atmosphere was better. Enjoy.

We have to confess that it was Tripadvisor which directed us to this superb yet understated restaurant. We felt very lucky to have found a table on the second night of our two night stay at Halifax, and our experience was absolutely magnificent.
You know when you arrive that the strap line of 'casual fine dining' is real. The ambience is relaxed yet professional and the relatively short but well constructed menu meets the needs of any foodie we know.
The food is superbly cooked to perfection and for starters Maggie's crab cake is still the subject of ecstatic praise and my scallops (go for the six not four - they're so good!) were tremendous. The entree's of hen foul chosen by Maggie and the strip steak which I ordered were delightful - the star in each case was the meat itself but the accompaniments were equally special - cooked to perfection and perfectly matched to the 'star' on the plate.
Now we don't normally get tempted to desserts but given the quality of our earlier experience and we both separately selected the flourless chocolate cake with the spectacular coconut ice cream - lovely!
This was a wonderful meal to positively remember and the well balanced and well thought out wine list was excellent value too.
The service throughout was attentive yet relaxed.
We loved our experience.
