Dining at Stories is a beautiful, intimate and gracious experience. The service is impeccable. And the food is wonderful - start with the scallops or crab cakes, move on to the salmon or beef and finish with the chocolate cake or one of the other fabulous desserts - pair it with one of the many great wines, and you will...

Stories is located in the historic Haliburton Inn in downtown Halifax. My husband and I have visited several times and are always delighted with delicious meals, superb wine list, and gracious and attentive staff. Our last visit was with family to celebrate a birthday. We each ordered different appetizers, entrees and desserts. Without exception, our meals were delicious. Stories continues... More

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.

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!

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...
