Fantastic food and outstanding service from the staff!
Thanks for your excellent review! We are so happy that you were pleased with the attentive service and house-made food served to you. Hope to see you again soon!
Love this place! Food is excellent, friendly staff, great energy!
I’m so grateful for your kind words, Robyn. It’s always so refreshing to hear that we are doing a good job! Our whole team loved reading this. Thanks and have a nice day!
Really great. Will be back again soon.
Thanks for the visit and great review! It’s pleasure to know you enjoyed our house-made meals. Hope to see you here again.
AMAZING. Food and service were both equally fabulous. The brunch value for 25$ is so worth it. Cheap for what you get. Best cornbread pancake you could ask for. Very original. Food is full of flavour and you for sure wont leave hungry!
Thanks for your visit and this great review. Hope to have you here again soon!
10/10 definitely will go back
We really appreciate your business and helping to spread the word about us. Thanks and have an amazing day!
Found the food to be about the same as if I had ordered take out, everything was just warm. My cocktail, while not on the menu(old fashioned)was just watered down by all the ice, see photo. I probably should have just ordered take out the ambience would have been better.
Thank you for the visit and taking the time to leave a review. I’m very sorry that your recent experience was not outstanding. We strive to deliver the best house-made food to every one of our customers and when we fall short of that goal we try to do everything we can to resolve the issue. I'm afraid I am unable to see photos, but will ensure that this and all other cocktails are being made to specifications. Hope you will give us another chance to make things right in house. Thank you.
Awesome diner type vibe in this place. Ambiance was awesome, food was great and service was outstanding. Would definitely return.
Thank you for the great review, Bailey. We hope you’ll visit us again.
It was about as you would expect a place call diner to be. Fairly basic menu but the food was well cooked. Presentation was basic. Wine and alcohol list was a nice surprise. Prices were very reasonable. We had good service from a brand new server. She did a great job.
Thanks for leaving us a review, Jane. I'm glad to know you enjoyed our drink list, food and attentive service. Hope you will give us another chance to give you 5-star experience
Fable Diner gained international notoriety when it was featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives a few years back and the re-opening of their dining room as BC businesses begin to open up from the COVID pandemic demonstrates that they haven't missed a beat. Terrific menu with just the right blend of enhanced diner fare and traditional diner goodies facilitated by great service and a funky ambience. My goal is to work my way through their menu by the end of summer 2021!
John, the team here is happy to receive such a great review, thank you. Look forward to seeing you here again.
First time at Fable Diner. Experience not on par w raving reviews online. Very new server (she said her first week) did not know some basic info like what cheese was on burger or that there was a kid’s menu. She was also clumsy and not good w COVID era protocols: kept touching mask, hadn’t tightened mask wire so kept falling below nose, dropped a fork on my daughter. Looked forward to milkshake but wondered if made correctly since was so runny and cup seemed like half full of whipped cream. Questioned what the “bits” in our classic chocolate shake were as they seemed like nuts, and she said they were hazelnuts from the Nutella whipped cream...? We’re not allergic but dangerous in today’s world not to list that your chocolate shake contains nuts. My husband enjoyed his meatloaf. First time in a while whole family has been able to eat out, so disappointed this was the experience.
Thank you for sending this information. Yes it's true, the majority of staff are brand new to us, and in many cases new to serving at all. Hiring right now is very difficult. I am sorry to hear that you endured this. OT shows us what day your visit was, but not the day part. They won't allow me add my actual email address, but please let us know what time you were in: kathy(at)fablediner(dot)c-o-m At the very least, we can provide some much needed guidance to this person.
We discovered Fable Diner during the pandemic and kept going back as the burgers are the best (even our kids agree!). When things reopened this time around we made sure to come by for a visit.
Thanks for your trust. Our mission is to serve local and house-made food and make it delicious. We are very happy with your review and look forward to your next visit.
Great friendly service and hot tasty food for late night!
Thank you for your visit and kind review. Look forward to having you back.
We have been to Fable Diner many times, and have never been disappointed. Will keep coming as your staff are wonderfull , we have always had great service and good value for our money.
Thank you for your kind words, Jeff. We are happy to see you as our regular guest :)
We love the weekend set brunch - it is terrific value for money. Coffee or tea and choice of cocktail/mocktail, delicious main dish and you get a little baked good to start the meal plus another to end it!
Jeannine, we are grateful to get such good feedback. It’s very much appreciated. Thanks for sharing and have an amazing day!
Great spot! delicious, modern twist on all the classics, and if you have not tried one of their milkshakes, you have not lived!
Hi, Morris! We’re very grateful for guests like you and hope you stick with us for years to come. Best wishes.
Prohibition Brunch was fantastic. Many choices for main entrees and beverages. Will be back!
Hi! We can’t thank you enough for the kind words about our Prohibition Brunch. Your review means a lot to us and lets us know we’re on the right track. Regards!
Disappointed that we were not offered all the items in the set menu. Never offered the after meal drink or dessert. Service was not as good as on my previous visit. Overall this visit left me a little underwhelmed.
Thanks for your feedback Allison and for coming in. It's true the special brunch meal we do for $25 for coffee, a beverage, house bread, entre and sweet finish does only have a choice of 8 entrees. You should have been given this Saturday's house-made cookie to finish. The manager did take care of a birthday Sundae! If it was you that had the bday, belated good wishes. I welcome more detail. OT won't allow me to put an email address. It is in the 'contact' area on our website.
Polite and amiable waiter, wonderful music and a delicious meal. Always a win
Thank you so much for your excellent review. Hope to see you again soon
Love this place. The staff is always friendly and the food is always good.
Thanks for your review, Nick. We appreciate you spending time with us more than you know. See you soon
Always a pleasure
Happy to know you had a great experience at Fable Diner! Thanks for sharing.
Was a fun brunch. Staff were great and so was the service. Two of us had the duck pancake and found it had far too much kimchi. Other than that, it was a good stop and we will go back.
Thanks so much for sharing this feedback with us. I am glad that you appreciated our service. When you visit again, feel welcome to provide such feedback. It's great because if something is being done incorrectly, it can be fixed in the moment. The staff is also mandated to do what we can to see you leave happy. Looking forward to seeing you here again.
Great food, great service! We will be back very soon!
Adam, thank you for your support. So happy to hear you enjoyed our locally sourced, house-made food and friendly service
First time visit
Great food and good selection
Thanks for your feedback, Roger. I’m glad you had a great experience. You’re always welcome at Fable Diner. Best wishes
Although made a reservation, still waited for 15min to get a seat. The dine out menu is confusing.
Thank you for your visit and this feedback. I strive to address the concerns listed - Can't see what time in. Brunch (assumed) is busy and I am sorry you had to wait. We limit dining time to 1 hour at brunch to allow more seating, but unfortunately not all guests comply to this -that may have been the case. Apologies the menu was found confusing. Further feedback on this is welcomed (if we can improve it, we want to!) OT does not allow me to share an email contact. It is on our site.
Service was amazing and the food was delicious! However the greeter/host was horrible! Put us on the wait list, which was fine, however we were told 20-25 mins, after an hour we decided to make a reservation on OpenTable and got right in. The greeter/host saw us and walked away. We had to wait for someone else to seat us. That individual was amazing! This is a great place and a must try! I am not going to let one person ruin my experience there!
Thank you for the excellent rating, despite having such difficulties being sat. I am sorry for this trouble. Thank you for the information regarding your experience. We are following up with those on during the Saturday brunch, as this experience should never happen. Look forward to having you here again. If experiencing anything close to this in the future, please request the manager and share this info with us so we can address it immediately.
We actually were going to do the Dine in Vancouver menu, but their regular menu looked good so my husband and I tried their menu. I had the burger and it was delicious and the passionfruit mimosa was good, my husband had their all day breakfast and he was not disappointed. We will definitely be back. The service was awesome too.
Hi, Rubina! We are incredibly grateful that you appreciated our attentive service and house-made food. Look forward to seeing you back many times.
Super yummy food! Can’t wait to come back again
Thanks for your feedback! It’s a pleasure to know that you enjoyed our locally sourced house-made food. We’ll be happy to see you again.
Good safety protocols, great food and excellent server
Reviews like this make our work so much lighter, Helen. Thanks for sharing, and have a great day!
The dessert tasted weird, the test was good
Thank you for visiting and taking the time to leave this review, Matteo. Open table won't allow me to give my email address to try to gain more info about the dessert that was tried. Please know that if anything is mentioned during the visit about something not being great, staff are meant to correct it or compensate for it immediately. Look forward to having you here again.
Good burger as usual. Good fries as usual. Good coffee as usual.
Thanks for the good review. We strive to be consistent in our quality and service. Glad that this has come through. Hope to see you soon.
Overall a very good diner style restaurant. We lost sight of the restaurant and overshot while running to dinner, because it was in a heritage Lee's Building. Good history with this part of it. Diner feels a little cramp but there was enough partitions all around during Covid. For Dine Out, all 5 of the family that went to dinner chose Steak and frites and tomato soup as a starter and also the chocolate peanut butter cream with caramel in a glass container. Taste was great and did all our steaks different as I eat my almost rare and the others were 2 medium rare, medium and well-done. We had the whole gamut and they cooked it to perfection and it came with a pepper jelly sauce and that was tasty. The fries were crispy, a little on the salty side but still good! Tomato soup with a drizzle of herb oil was creamy and tasty like tomatoes and cream should be, not can-like at all! Overall food is great and I just found out that they have been featured on Guy Fieri's Diners and at least one other food show! Great little place!
Thank you for your visit and kind words. I’m glad you enjoyed your experience and appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. Kind regards!
Amazing food! We absolutely loved the chocolate peanut butter milkshake and their passion fruit mimosas. The feature of the day was a pulled pork eggs Benny and we also ordered the Roasted Duck Pancake. Both were amazing dishes and would order them again!
Thank you for this excellent review! It’s so great to hear that you loved our house-made food and milkshakes. Hope to see you again soon.
Great, casual up-scale diner feel. And they made my pre-teen daughter feel special for her birthday with balloons and a special birthday sundae.
Thank you for choosing us to celebrate your daughter’s birthday, Kind Regards!
This is not the average diner! One could call it diner chic; the menu has what can be expected, but often with a unique twist. The food was delicious. Also, the cocktails were great. As with the food, the classics, but with an innovative twist. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. We will definitely return.
Thank you for this great review. I'm happy to know that you enjoyed your visit. Hope to see you again soon!
First time to Fable after reading reviews and looking for something on our way to South Granville. The Prohibition Brunch was on. Amazing value and food! We selected the Duck Pancakes and the feature Benny. So so good! We will definitely be back!!
