Popped in during a weekend visit to Vancouver as it was highly recommended by several friends who are Vancouver residents. What a great recommendation - meal was extremely tasty my wife and I almost licked the plates clean. FYI - they make a fantastic Bloody Caesar, one of the best we've tasted in years! Service was polished, efficient and wait... More

During the midweek, this restaurant was filled and very busy for lunch. Wonderful attmosphere and attractive surroundings. Unfortunately, the hamburger was burned and the frits were close to it -- for our guest.. Otherwise, the entrees were delicious with unusual flavors.

Thank you for this kind review. Your guest should never have been made to endure a burnt entree. I am so sorry that this went to the table and that we didn't get to correct it during the visit. I will be sending a private message. I appreciate so much the compliments to the rest of the experience. More

Terrific evening of great food. Very creative innovative approach to almost every dish. Started with fun cocktails followed by their signature Tomato Soup with Mini Grilled Cheese and their Spaghetti and Duck Meatball. Unfortunately they ran of a few of the great sounding specials just as we ordered them. To make it up to us they offered us a complimentary... More

Thank you David for this great review. Sorry that we did run out of two of the features just the group ordered. It's hard to know how well quickly the fresh feature items will sell, and this was disappointing timing. I am glad we could help make up for it in the moment. If we had the manpower and mostly...

This is an excellent restaurant serving healthy and delicious meals. The chef has won awards for his cooking. We had a pulled pork that was perfectly flavored, delicious warm bread, and fresh vegetables.

I loved my meal at Fable , all the dished we order were made to perfection , and what impressed me the most was the mixture of flavors for example the Chick peas Croquetts or falafel sounds like a very simple dish that you can find almost everywhere but they take something as simple as a falafel and mix it...

We were in a group of 7 and went out for dinner at "fable". The evening was great. The wine was perfect, the dinner delicious and the service super!! They create something new out of the ordinary - seasonal and local ingredients. We shared the desserts since we were not even hungry anymore after the amazing dishes before. But we... More

The restaurant is very small and cozy but never loud with only the background hum of other conversations. It was all of our first times at this restaurant and we all enjoyed our meals. Every dish was put together so well with so many levels of flavours. The best part however, was the appetizers. Their menu is seasonal so these... More

We came to Fable on our last evening in Vancouver. Our host friends had been here a few months back and thought it would be fun for us. We were seated immediately by the welcoming hostess - it is a small restaurant but not crazy loud. We had a fantastic server - friendly and informative, she guided us to a... More
