Another Wonderful meal in this fabulous little spot. The food was top notch, the service was excellent and the ambiance lovely. Definitely high on our Halifax recommendation list
The most amazing meal I have had in years! The scallops were particularly amazing. The service was wonderful and the ambiance was intimate and cozy.
Malcolm was our server. Very knowledgeable on each menu item. Super service.
Cocktails mixed properly and served in a nice sized glass. Wine selection...class A.
All courses were beautifully plated. Food was delicious and cooked to perfection.
Hot veggies......imagine that!
Desserts and cheese plate so good! Thank you all and see you soon.
Friendly comfortable fine dining. Food is absolutely divine!
The food was amazing, Malcolm's service was personable and friendly. Everything was great!
It was the best such a lovely evening, it was our Anniversary 33 years. We have celebrated so many times at Stories and the food, service everything is always perfect. Thank you for you for such an outstanding restaurant we call our own in Halifax.
Just exceptional. We (my wife and I) have been to Stories on occasion in the past several years, and it remains a true fine dining experience. The setting and ambience make it a great spot for a romantic dinner. This past weekend was our first visit there in a few years, and the food was absolutely exceptional. Starters and the Faroe Island Salmon entrees were exquisite. Notably, the menu is not large...but it is safe to say they seem to have perfected everything on it. We will definitely return again to this top-tier restaurant in Halifax. Highly recommended...
It was amazing
My wife and I had dinner at Stories and it was a lovely evening. The only suggestion would be that there could be a little background noise so that the other 2 tables wouldn't be able to listen to everything we were saying.
We had a wonderfully memorable evening at Stories! The food & service were both impeccable. So much so that we are already yearning for another visit back, soon! This was a father & son get-together, which we will remember fondly for a long time.
I highly recommend this restaurant. Everything about our meal was outstanding, including our lovely server Kelsey.
Excellent food and service!
The food and atmosphere are impeccable at Stories. Highly recommended!
When you enter Stories, everything is spotless and wee maintained.
We were 2 couples and we had a private room so we had a wonderful evening to catch-up with friends.
The food was prepared perfectly and presentation was excellent.
Best experience in a restaurant in a long time
What a jewel. Top marks across the board - the warm welcome, the decor, our waitress Kelsey who was a joy & the food exquisite taste sensations. We experienced why it is #1. Come with a good appetite& savour every bite.
The food, service and ambiance were five star. Don’t hesitate to dine here.
Great service and truly delicious food — the best in Halifax if you want a more upscale evening out.
Absolutely superb food quality, taste and presentation. We ordered our red wine first so that it could be opened up and allowed to breathe. I don't think the server understood this. The wine was opened once we asked for it with our first course. A small point, however, we ordered a wine that would have benefited from decanting prior to serving. This does not stop me from planning another meal there and if needed, ask specifically, that the wine be decanted. Did I say the appetizers, mains, and desserts were superb? Well done!!!!
We had an excellent meal and evening. The quality and presentation of the food and the service were outstanding.
The restaurant is small so I would recommend making a reservation.
Food was excellent and our waitress was pleasant and attentive

Did I say Fabulous
Yep summed it up nicely 🤩
As usual, great food, great service, great value. This is our go to restaurant.
Our first time at Stories. Decided to try it due to the rave reviews. It didn’t disappoint, food was impeccable. My only criticism (very minor) is that I found our table a bit small and would have preferred a view. But it was nice and quiet and is our next “go to” place for an elegant, fairly priced meal.
We really enjoyed our dining experience at Stories. The warm welcome, private dining room, ambience and our lovely server together with the exceptional high quality dishes made for a memorable dinner. We really enjoyed the scallops wrapped in rice paper, the bison carpaccio and goat’s cheese starters, and the guinea hen, salmon and duck entrees were delicious! Would love to go back for another meal. Highly recommended!
Food was excellent, service was excellent, environment was charming!!
Excellent dining experience all around! Fantastic chef and great service!
Ideal location and facility if you are looking for a private and comfortable dining experience.
This hidden gem is attached to The Halliburton Hotel. The unpretentious menu is concise ensuring that each dish is both excellent to taste and beautifully presented.
Our last visit coincided with the COVID-19 restrictions so the decor was stripped down to ensure compliance but not at the expense of a fine dining experience.
If you are looking for an excellent meal this will deliver.
Everything was wonderful. The server was attentive but could have been more friendly. Also, it was a fantastic place to go at this time. Our party of four was in our own separate little room.
We were looking for a Valentine's day resto and we definitely found the perfect place for that in Halifax. Such a wonderful display of delicate flavors and a variety of textures to please our senses. The chef showed quite an astounding mastery of his craft and has been at the helm for many years. The waitress was so considerate, nice, professionnal and willing to explain every aspects of the menu. If you are looking for a date and a great meal, I highly recommend Stories. It will be part of your story as it now is a part of ours.
Good food, great service and a warm, cozy setting. And they take the health measures with regards to stopping the spread of covid very seriously, which is an aspect of dining nowadays I never thought I would also have to mention in a review...
It was a treat to return to Stories after a year. The service, food and ambience were just as exceptional as we remembered.
The food was amazing and interesting. The ambiance was great and felt very safe. The service was top notch. A great combo of tending to our needs without interrupting our party's conversation. I LOVED this place and cannot wait to return.
Excellent service and food. Favourite dining experience.
What a wonderful experience! Very few restaurants are able to maintain this level of consistently high quality service year, over year, over year. I would absolutely rate Stories as my number one dining experience in Halifax.
Wonderful atmosphere and excellent food and service. House wine is excellent.
A wonderful culinary delight ....a delicious retreat in a sea of the normal dining experiences.
We had a lovely dinner. Our food was delicious and we appreciated the attentive service and the quiet atmosphere.
Thank you for your kind review, Carol! We look forward to hosting you again!
Great service. Delicious food. Will be returning!
