We were staying at the Halliburton Hotel and decided to eat in-house at their restaurant, which was truly refined and delicious. An amazing duck dish, a great wine list, a romantic atmosphere even on a snowy evening in early February. Definitely fine-dining and great for a special evening out.

I went to Stories with my husband & we had a wonderful experience. Philip the waiter was excellent & very attentive. Food was delicious & well presented. I had the scallops and the duck. My husband had the bison & striploin. The food was cooked to perfection.I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We received this dinner as part of a gift from our children. This was a three-course dinner and we had a bottle of Nova Scotia wine (Blomidon Tidal Bay.) This went beautifully with my starter, Pan-seared rice paper wrapped scallops. My wife had the Sauteed Queen Crab cakes. For our main course, my wife had the Yellow Fin Tuna Grilled... More

Annie was an excellent server in a tiny restaurant in our hotel. I enjoyed my lamb three ways. Lamb is my favorite entree to order in a restaurant and this was one of the best ever! My wife said that her meal was exquisite; she ordered two appetizers instead of an entree: rice paper wapped sea scallops with balsamic sesame... More

Great dining in a beautiful Inn, and truly lives up to the billing of "relaxed fine dining". If you've had one too many chain-restaurant meals, and want to revisit that feeling where you visit a place where they actually "chef a little", and the staff seem to care that you're having a great experience, you can't go wrong with this...

Service is impeccable, food and presentation fantastic and the ambiance is quiet, peaceful and so rare in casual fine dining in North America. Our top Halifax restaurant and we have been to all the "must go" foodie haunts in Hfx

The dinner was amazing from start to finish. Appetizers were encrusted scallops and salad with goat cheese. The encrusted scallops were fabulous with a wonderful sauce. Mains were duck breast, tuna and steak. All were very good but the duck breast was really outstanding. They have a pretty decent wine list and our waitress great advice. The service was exceptional... More
