In my opinion, the prices were too high for a diner. Cleanliness of tables and glassware was an issue. Service was good.

Fable Diner
Responded on June 22, 2020

Just caught this! Thank you for your visit and the compliment to service. We have gone over and above the sanitization mandated by our government. Want to absolutely know where this appeared to be lacking so it can be addressed immediately. Please email me at kathy[at]fablekitchen[dot]ca Our food is sourced locally and much is housemade. This does result in higher prices than the typical 'diner'.

First time trying it with 3 friends joining. Staff was great and very accommodating to different food palates. Giving the food a 3/5 stars for a couple of reasons: I had the Fable burger and really liked it though the fries were a bit too salty -- next time I'll ask for my fries unsalted and add my own to taste. One person in my party had the vegan salad and found it strange that the potatoes in the salad were warm but the kale wasn't -- she would have preferred the entire salad to be warm. Two people in my group sent back their soup of the day as it was served barely room temperature and they had to had to ask for it to be heated; it was tasty though. Finally, one person ordered the pulled pork and found it to be more chunky than pulled, and also too dry; had to request more sauce to be added to it. She won't order it again but is willing to come back to try other dishes. The diner seems to be doing well and we will definitely give it another chance.

We had such a good time at the fable diner, its a must go again for us.

The hostess went out of her way to our change the reservation for the added numbers to our party was much appreciated.

The food is consistently very good at this restaurant, with the service being the same. Max our server that evening was great; friendly and fun, with the perfect balance of professionalism and familiarity. We mostly all had the burgers that night with the exception of one that had the steak, and all items were delivered hot and to order. The fries were also the best we've had in a long while and the shakes are not to be missed.

I want to keep it all to myself, but I think the secret is already out by the fact that it was full of happy patrons. It deserves the stars and it certainly can't be slighted for any reason that evening. We will be back!

Thank you for your visit and feedback. It is unusual for us. OT only tells the date visited, but not time. I apologize that the server did not inquire how the food was - it is considered an essential step of service here. I would like to look at this. Please let me know approx. what time you were by and items ordered. I can find the table and touch base with the team involved. Thank you in advance! OT doesn't allow me to give an email address.
