    Great service, excellent food, great price. All four of us were very happy with our meals. The only downside was noise from a private event downstairs. Fortunately, that didn’t occur until close to our departure.

    Food was great but the service was really slow. Took a long time to get drinks or order our food but then they cleared our dishes immediately which felt strange. Then it took forever to get our bill.

    Sorry to hear of this. Though it is impossible to know what time you were in, it was super busy this weekend with the Laver Cup at Rogers and Coldplay at BC Place. Explains your erratic service but doesn't excuse it.

    Check the menu before you go, it's a bit eclectic. Had 5 items between 3 people, none were wow. None were bad. Ceasar had an odd aftertaste, they use craft brand for the mix, but tastes do differ. Waitress was not the greatest, mislead us on dairy content in some items, made us feel rushed, but the place was empty.

    Not 100% what is meant and welcome your feedback. We don't use 'branded' stuff, since most everything is house made from scratch. Did the server lead you astray? I look forward to your response.

    We found the food was good but really there wasn’t enough of it. Came out after a burger and fries still feeling hungry. Really need to up the quantity.

    Fable Diner & BarResponded 4 days ago

    Thanks for the feedback. The burger is a standard size, as are the fries (?) accompanying. Your recommendations are very welcome!

    Fable Diner & BarResponded 4 days ago

    Hi there, yes, the menus are different at all three of our locations, since the size etc and what we can do are different in each space. Sorry to disappoint!

    Worst brunch service I’ve ever experienced. Server brought black coffee and walked away, had to wait until she came back to ask for cream/milk. Didn’t bring our drinks until we asked after them. Saw our food waiting for over 15min before brought to table cold. We’ve had good experiences at other locations but will not return here.

    Fable Diner & BarResponded on September 16, 2023

    Sorry to hear of your experience. Know that it is not indicative of this place. Labor Day weekend is challenging for staffing and this sounds like you got to taste the brunt of this. Sorry again.

    UPDATE We returned here on another busy night and had a much improved experience. Service, food, and timing were all very good, and this second experience was definitely good enough to change my mind. We will be returning again for pre-event dining. We had reservations for dinner for 4, and when I booked my reservation, it was for the Oasis patio. When we got there, we were seated inside in a booth. When I asked the hostess about this, she went to check with one of her coworkers, and came back and told us that there were only tables for 2 on the patio. I should not have been able to make a reservation that was not able to be accomodated. After being seated, it took a bit more time than I would expect before our drink and food orders were taken, but it was busy in there, so not terribly unexpected. Where the service started to be subpar, was the fact that it was about 45 minutes after our drinks were served before we saw our server again, and it took over an hour to get all of our food. One of the people at our table was served their meal 10 minutes before the rest of us, which is not great dining as a group. The food was ok, not terrible, but not great for the price that you pay. My burger was dry, and the amount of cheese on there was barely even noticeable...a small sprinkle of shredded cheese. Everyone else at the table also thought the food was not as good as they would have hoped, but again, just ok. I was really hopeful that this would have been a better experience, and that I would have a new go to before a game or a show, but sadly the experience was very disappointing. We won't be returning.

    This same review was fully answered in google. The Ed Sheeran concert definitely made things challenging! I hope you reconsider and give us another try.

    The lamb entree my husband had was very good, the udon & kimchi bowl I had was OK. It was tasty but I was anticipating more vegetables - only had corn besides the kimchi. The fried chicken on it was very good. We enjoyed the patio seating. We did not realize how big the restaurant was - interesting layout. We will have to come again and try something different.

    Quieter early evening and louder as everything is in downtown Vancouver as the evening progresses. Good burger and fries and pint of beer. Not good for vegetarians or vegans. I am flexible and do eat fish in occasion. The vegetarian burger on the menu that I wanted was only on the lunch menu, not the dinner menu.

    Upscale bar food, large multi-level patio. Decent size space with outdoor and indoor options for seating. The good news is the tasty mussels! The classic mussels with white wine garlic butter sauce were a hit. The garlic toast was lacking garlic, but  good enough to sop up the salty sauce. Too many restaurants are doing a tomato broth, we prefer the white wine version. The house salad was a pleasant mix of bitter greens with the cranberries there to offset it.  I was disappointed with the "Pork and Kimchi Dumpling, as it was just a common Pork Dumpling... with Kimchi in the middle of the plate. At least it was tasty. The "Fabel Wings" were just awful. Not crispy, over sauced and the "Hot" sauce tasted like Red Hot. I ate 3 and gave up. Service was slow but decent. The Playlist was on point though!

    The food is really solid as is the service. Unfortunately the room is a bit "meh" - seems to be the same space as it was under the prior ownership (when it was the Kingston Tap House) - so a little bit dated and a little bit dark. Would hope to get a spot on the patio next time - but it was full this particular visit. Would probably recommend it - albeit not that enthusiastically.

    Service was incredibly slow and is the reason we don't be returning. My husband was a few minutes late as he was having a hard time finding parking, but our server took the drink order for my son and me, and they came quickly. When my husband finally arrived, it took her a full 20 min to return to our table to ask if we were ready to order. Uh yes! Fable Diner & Bar is one of the participating restaurants in the Patty Pass program by Real Beef Buddies. However, when we showed our server our pass booklets, she had no clue what we were on about. Their featured burger, the Fable Bacon Cheeseburger, isn't even on the menu but she said no problem, we could definitely order bacon cheeseburgers. Not convinced we'd be getting the burger as shown on the Real Beef Buddies website (which looks absolutely amazing and is the reason we chose to go to this restaurant) we asked the guy that brought our drinks if he wouldn't mind asking our server to return as we had a question. He of course asked if he could help, saw our pass booklets and knew what the program was all about. Yay! Burgers arrived in a very reasonable time , and while they didn't look quite like the picture (halved cherry tomatoes, rather than slices), they were still pretty good. Their fries are incredible tho! Onion rings also really good (battered not breaded) as is the accompanying peanut-chipotle-mole dip. My bourbon lemonade didn't taste like much altho the pop was bottomless.

    Fable Diner & BarResponded on June 17, 2023

    Thanks for coming in. Sorry the waitress didn't know about the Patty Pass. This is the second time we've been a part, so she must have been new. Glad the food was enjoyable.

    We had a great evening. The servers were accommodating of our larger group than was indicated on our reservation. The service was very good other than one meal taking 15 minutes longer than the others. The eggplant was a little raw with the ratatouille dish for a few of our guests. All in all we enjoyed our evening and would definitely go back.
