Steak | Halifax, Nova Scotia

I’ve never been because of the price but we got gift certificates and I’m soooooooooo glad we finally got the chance to go. The steaks are the most amazing tasting steaks I’ve ever had. The service is wonderful and courteous. The drinks are great. We even got a piece of banana bread from the chef on the way out. It was all around wonderful. I plan to make it a yearly treat for our anniversary or something special. More

We were 3 couples which included 2 sisters and a cousin. It was valentines but also Ron and my anniversary- 11th & 8th - commonlaw and marriage. First time at this restaurant which feels like a Neighbourhood restaurant, though first time visit. The service was friendly, relaxed and pleasant. We didn’t feel rushed. We were able to carry a conversation which was pleasant. The food was excellent. A couple of us had the mushroom pasta, lamb, and not sure what the rest ordered. Everyone was very pleased with their order. Our conversation was lively but not disturbing to others - I don’t think. The owner came to thank us for coming before we left, a personable and nice gesture. I would love to come back with a group of people or just my hub and I. I really appreciate being able to talk without strain. More

We enjoyed the dinner at Stories that evening. In the reservation[n, I had indicated that we would be celebrating a birthday for my partner and that we required a very quiet table. Our table location was excellent, as there were no other guests in the 4 table room. So we were able to converse without a lot of background noise. In the review card left on the table, I indicated that the server should have offered some special treat-maybe a small glass of champagne or a free dessert, considering the special occasion. At most, fine dining locations in Halifax, this is a standard practice. The food, service and ambiance were excellent, but the lack of special recognition of the birthday celebration was disappointing. More

The chef happily made the menu vegetarian and even checked in with us a couple of times to see if we were enjoying the food. And boy was the food delicious! Great price. Lovely waitress. Cozy space. Definitely my new favourite. And an added bonus for all you craft beer lovers out there - Afrite is the ONLY restaurant serving Tidehouse exclusively. Oh, and you have got to have the tahini cheescake for dessert! Do not forget the cheesecake ❤️ More

I think the prices went up since my last visit, some items they could actually charge more for, I felt, oddly enough. The food was served very quickly, my only reason for 4 stars on the service aspect would be, in my opinion, hold off on the cooking of the orders, untill I was a little further into my first drink. Some of the best food in the city, some of the best drinks, awesome service and decent music. I love this spot. More

Unfortunately, there was a new dinner menu the night we went. I had hoped the new owners would not change too much, but the new menu was disappointing. There were only 5-6 appetizer choices and 5-6 entrees. I'm hoping this was just a trial, and not a long term plan. As they say, don't fix what's not broken! Of course, we'll be back, but maybe just for breakfast! More

Jeff’s passion for food and beverage and customer service was clear to see, we would absolutely go back again because of the exceptional service Jeff provided us with. Great job, he’s a true asset to your establishment. Thanks! Nakita Nickerson More
