    The food, atmosphere, and prices were incredible but the service was very poor, we sat with dirty cups and plates on our table for a while and the waitress walked away twice after only taking my girlfriends food/drink order and not mine. Food was incredible though and much worth it.

    I had high expectations from a Dinner that made it on Triple D’s. I had the Rosted Duck pancake I would give it a 3/5. My youngest son had French Toast 4/5. My wife and other son had all day Breakfast 4/5.

    Fable DinerResponded 7 days agoThat is odd. Roast duck pancake is a huge hit. Sorry to hear it.

    Everything was great - service, wine, ambience - as usual, but the food was terrible. The duck pancake was dry and awful, not anything like what it used to be. Disappointing.

    Fable DinerResponded 7 days agoNot to standard. (As you know). Sorry to hear it. If you do make it back, let the server know. Should be re-done

    It is without hyperbole (I don't even know the meaning of the word it just formed from my fingertips) that I say this is the single greatest eating experience my husband and I have ever had. The way the unicorn pranced through the restaurant sprinkling our food with some ethereal seasoning that enhanced the flavours beyond Earthly parallel was just spectacular. I wouldn't have thought I could happier if JUST that had happened but that was just the BEGINNING of the night! The waiters delivered our food and beverages by swinging trapeze in a dazzling display of athleticism and showmanship. I was astounded that the milkshakes we ordered were blended to perfection while the staff flipped and pole vaulted across the acres of open floor. The food was prepared in front of our eyes, literally, by tiny robots assembling each component molecularly. A scientifically perfect burger and fries sprinkled below onto the plate as if by magic if it weren't from the robots visible the entire time. Music showered down into our ears from On High as if the angels themselves were performing it to us. The speakers inlaid into the modern, cozy exposed ceiling may as well have been wreathed in golden light. I watched as a woman at a nearby table wept openly while staring at the speakers. Her table floated upwards without her notice, vanishing into the ceiling silently. Our waiter somersaulted spectacularly away to relay the development to staff behind the bar what had happened. The other diners seemed too enraptured in their own multifaceted dining elation to notice. My husband cried out from our patio when we got home, "Nutella whipped cream is what the Ancient Greeks called Ambrosia and I'm tired of the world not knowing the truth!" Something in me knew he was right but I don't know if the world is ready for it. As for me, I came away from that night a changed man. I went into that restaurant deprived of hope, bereft of joy. I left enlightened and full-stomached. I implore you to visit...

    Fable DinerResponded on May 22, 2022lol. Thanks for the great review. I laughed aloud.

    A classic sidewalk cafe,with a slightly more upscale menu and interior that makes good use of a relatively small space. Love how elegantly they've done their COVID partitions, which look more like an intentional design element than a temporary, mandated add-on. The service on my visit was very quick. I didn't really care for the veggie burger I had, but it was well prepared. Looking forward to returning

    The food portion is no quantity for the price! by no means.

    Fable DinerResponded on February 15, 2022Value is definitely there, since we source locally and make what we can in house, so it is more expensive for us. This should have come across in flavor though. It's true we are more expensive than an average diner.

    So disappointed as wanted a "dine out experience" We had all decided on the options on the dine out menu & this was the main reason we chose this Fable!! I changed the reservations several times d/t different # of people. Ended up having eat @ 4:45 pm as it appeared that was the ONLY time available. We we the only ones in the restaurant!! Seems that was the only time as maybe that was how late there were open! The servers tried to be accomodating but was hard to make up for feeling like we had been hugly mislead. Maybe it is the fault of the dine out program/website but it has put me off this restaurant and changed my always positive experience with the dine out Vancouver to be very negative

    Fable DinerResponded on February 3, 2022Very sorry to hear of this impression! Thank you for your feedback, it will be looked into.

    Overall was hit or miss with the meals. The naming of the fried steak meal was confusing, the fish platter was bland, and the cheesecake sauce was very sweet. Good things: wine pairing, tomato soup, and the mashed potatoes with the steak. Will add that two of four members felt quite sick to our stomachs after the meal, not sure what it was but I think it was the mixing of fried, dairy, and high salt that made us queasy. Value for money didn’t really make it.
