The hotel, Halliburton House Inn is also home to one of Halifax's finest dining rooms, with summer-dining in the courtyard, full of trees and flowers. The chef oversees one of the more interesting menus in Halifax; the menu changes with the season, while always paying special attention to Atlantic seafood and exotic game. Desserts depend on which fruits are fresh, so in summer there are various strawberry and blueberry concoctions. A year-round offering is the chocolate sin cake, a flourless Belgian cake with raspberry puree.
A week ago I dined at Stories and had the "Flight". I was told that it was the Chef's Carte Blanche, for the adventerous diner. So my girlfriend and I said, why not, and we tried it. The waiter explained that it was generally a five course meal, two appetizers and a cleansing course, main course and desert. Well, it ended up being nine courses! Definately the best meal I've had in Halifax.
Next time I'm in town, the Halliburton will be on the top of my places to go and eat!
\"\"Stories Restaurant\" at \"Halliburton House Inn\" in Halifax. Very Poor Service, Poor Food
By A Yahoo Contributor, 2/22/05
This is my "Story" of the "Stories" Restaurant. Worst Service ever, my girlfriend and I went there for valentine's day. The waitress (Helen) was horrible, she got us the wine and said she would be back with the bread rolls etc, we placed the order and next thing we know the chef bought the soup telling me it was *HOT*, when I tried it was cold, then before we even finished our soup we got the entree again served by somebody. The waitress, who finally appeared, said,"oh! you got your meal", now in the meantime another couple came in she was all over them giving them different choices, different breads etc. when I asked her is this how you normally serve your meal (without the bread and rush thru the main course) she said "Oh! you should have gotten the bread" I was like yes and you were the waitress. I wanted to leave no tip but I did and a good tip ($40) Since it was a very special day for us (our First anniversary) and said I will not be an jerk and ruin our evening. Which completed a very unsatisfying dining experience. Two days later we went to "La cave" on Spring Garden Road, and had a ball. Think twice before going to Stories.
I would definitely never recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxed romantic dining experience. You would be much better off going to "La Cave" or the "Fireside" or "The Bish". I hope this helps someone avoid a dinner disaster like mine.
