Compared to Chives, Bish, Cut and Gio, no. It's in Lunenburg so do your homework first. Check out the menu on line, food and wine. Our meal there was a pleasant surprise. We ended up in the 'basement ' and it is noisy but the service and food, quality and quantity, made up for any apprehension we may have had. The best Osso Bucco, hopefully that's the correct spelling, I have had in some time. The wine suits the food. As a hint as to how relaxed /confident the staff is; I asked our waiter how to pronounce the name of the winery. The waiter said, In my best Blue Rocks accent I would say.......

Blue Rocks is a village outside Lunenburg. Enjoy your visit.

Just a note to agree Stories is one of the best kept secrets in town. The quality, selection, creativity, presentation and service rivals the'best' restaurants and should be considered one of them. We have eaten annually on New Years Eve, and even with the steady crowd and full house, my comments above apply.

My words exactly. We ate there, no; five of us dined there earlier this year (2009). Too much emphasis on the chef and not enough attention to the service or flavour. We enjoyed a wonderful meal but it could have been so much more satisfying. Servings were impressive but I'll have to review what we ordered and post here later going into more detail.

I suggest fish and chips on Fridays at Maxwell's Plum on the corner of Grafton and Sackville. A pub with strange seating areas but a huge beer selection and cheap bottles of wine, in a pub, no less.
