My husband wanted to organize a special dinner for four of us to celebrate my 75th birthday. We could not have chosen a better place. We were in one of the two small private rooms and the atmosphere was perfect - as was the food....The menu isn't large but there is still plenty of variety. To work around a couple of food preferences and to leave room for main courses, we shared three appetizers (crab cake, scallops and goat cheese salad). Then two of us had tuna, one had duck and the other the salmon. All dishes were beautifully cooked and each was a work of art on the plate. Amazingly, two people still had room for dessert and pronounced the flourless chocolate cake and the sorbet to be marvellous. Our server, whose name I sadly forgot to ask, was terrific. Attentive and helpful but never obtrusive, he had a delightful sense of humour and got that we were a table of old people but not in our dotage. He helped us navigate menu items to work around one person's dairy intolerance and assisted with the wine choices. If Stories is having the supply and staffing issues that we hear are affecting most of the hospitality industry at the moment, it was certainly not obvious. This was the best dining out experience we've had in years. Thank you to all concerned.More

This restaurant was incredible! From the service to the ambience and the food, all was 10/10”. Truly the best meal we have experienced in Eastern Canada.

Our first time enjoying the wonderful atmosphere, service and food at Stories. The quality of food and presentation were world class. I asked for the wine to be opened at the start of our meal. However, it wasn't. Next time, and there will be a...next time soon, I'll be more specific. Overall, a superb dining experience.More

We have travelled extensively and visited a number of Michelin starred restaurants in Europe. This would rank right up there in terms of the quality of the food, the creativity and the presentation. Wine selection and cocktail lists is limited, however. Highly recommended for a...special night out.More

We had a fantastic evening at Stories on Friday night. Covid protocols are followed, the staff and service were excellent and the food was beyond words! It was all I could do not to lick the plate after each course!!

We went back to this restaurant for my birthday meal. Appropriate spacing for social distancing was in place, which we thought made the restaurant more intimate. I had the goat cheese salad and the guinea hen and my partner had the carpaccio and beef tenderloin....Portions were just the right size. Bread before the meal was delicious. We had a cheese plate and flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Everything tasted fabulous, and was presented beautifully. Service was very evenly paced and the server was very professional and friendly, without being obtrusive. We would have preferred a couple more main course selections and a different type of salad for a starter. We were also disappointed that soup was not an option. They were out of the wine that we initially ordered, which is understandable, but slightly disappointing. This has been consistently the best fine dining restaurant in Halifax and for the price, we thought it was a very good value. We would highly recommend.More

This is a special place to eat. The wine list is great and the meals are delicious. I would highly recommend for a special occasion or a date night. The atmosphere is cozy and elegant. It’s expensive but worth the splurge.

Went here for a romantic dinner with my wife. Loved the service and atmosphere as with COVID 19 restrictions, we were very isolated and well looked after by our server. Menu was small but every item was worthy of attention. Our meals were first rate,...served beautifully and taste was very good to exceptional. And a decent wine selection to boot. Highly recommend.More
