    Had a great time trying the prohibition brunch with my companions. Service was amazing as per usual I like how they wait until everyone was done their plates before bringing the next course so we did not feel rushed. Would have loved for the cookies to be warmed as well but delightful meal overall and an absolute steal at the price offered.

    The duck breast and rosti were excellent. Menu prices quite reasonable, wine prices are on the high side. Our server was wonderful, cheerful, conscientious, caring, there. Desert menu quite limited. On the whole, a great place!

    Very disappointing birthday dinner. The fish was really over cooked, even on the second try, yet the veggies were under cooked and the flavours overall were banal. The poor server didn’t know what to do about it but tried her best. There were also very few non-meat items on offer and nothing remotely healthy. Neither of us would go back. Too bad because on a previous visit I did have a lovely (though pricy!) brunch there. I can see why the place was empty.

    Don't expect to hear anyone you're with at their brunches. It was so loud, and we were so close to the other tables, we nearly ate without speaking. And then they added music?! Great food and the service is wonderful, but if you want conversation don't go for brunch.

    So happy that Fable reopened after Covid. The menu has gone smaller but all the dishes we ordered were good. Our server was ultra friendly. Hope that some of the old favorites would return eg, canned tuna!

    Only four options on the menu, one was unavailable. Features of the night only was bread with chive butter, when we ordered it we were told they had sold out. Kale salad tasted like anchovies and butane. Disappointed.

    The only reason I didn’t rate higher was because the gnocchi dish which I always ordered has gotten smaller. Also, the Kale salad had changed as well. Otherwise, the service was excellent and it’s still one of our favourite places in Kits.

    1) Too dark - In Vancouver we need more light/sun not darkness. 2) Open table had limited reservations and when there, the place was almost empty 3) 18% set as minimum tip is a high expectations in these days of high inflation. Some can change it in the system others not or takes time. Less % and more options would be would. 4) Food expensive for what it was served. 5) Tables too close together. I went with a Senior and we couldn't have a nice conversation. Overall OK but I was expecting a bit more in regards to ambiance & food. Thanks

    Fable KitchenResponded on June 14, 2022Thanks for your visit and feedback. Yes, it's true, seating is in the back and the kitchen is upfront. That means it's darker in the daytime. Reservations are limited for brunch. You can choose any tip level desired, but I do get what you mean. Sadly, prices are going up. Thanks again

    Second time at fable kitchen and we just love it! The menu is small and everything is delicious from starters till dessert and the cocktails too. We love the octopus and pork belly starter and the duck main. Highly recommend trying it out for a nice occasion! Our servers both times were kind and knowledgeable 😊

    Fable had been on my list of restaurants to try for a while. We went in on the weekend and it was... okay. We started with a beet tartar, which was wonderful and my wife and I wrestled over the last few morsels. They were sold out of my wife's first choice of beverage, but she found a second choice. I had a cocktail, which was less exciting that I'd hoped but just had my wishing I'd chosen one of the other intriguing options from the list. Our mains were okay. I had the duck with carrots done two ways. The duck was tasty, though I would have preferred a crispier skin and the carrots done two ways left me wishing for something other than carrot on the plate. The short rib was paired with a really nice polenta and crispy brussels sprouts, but the beef itself was less tender than we'd hoped. All things considered, the service and the atmosphere may bring us back - but we'll hope to have a better experience with the food than we had this time.

    Food was too salty. There were 5 of us for brunch and we all commented that the potatoes were too salty. The hollandaise sauce was not good either. Would not recommend.

    I love this place but the last time the veg were burnt and unfortunately that over powered the taste of the veg. The music in the back round was a tiny bit loud or we were directly below a speaker or something. Everything else was perfect. Normally everything is 100% and I have eaten there about 10 times with no issues
