We love dining at Fable Diner. Great comfort food in a lovely old school style setting. Also great modern cocktail menu. Lovely genuine staff, who don’t overdo it (as I find with many Vancouver spots). Had Thanksgiving dinner on our most recent visit, so good! Thanks as always Fable!

Another nice dinner out with my wife.
Had the meatloaf and Kale Caesar salad this time.
Both were delicious.
Wife enjoyed her pulled pork grilled cheese samich.
The waitress was very nice and helpful and even made us a custom drink.

Experience was swift getting in even with the QR code scanner. Server was very friendly and kept the experience fun. Food was hearty and delicious. Condiment requests on burgers were a bit mixed up but nothing to fuss about. Drinks were great but took a little long to be made.. I think the server had to make them even though there were a couple others on the floor. I am sure a manager could've bartender for the servers for a smoother turnover. Overall, had a great time and will be back.

Took my boyfriend here to celebrate his birthday and the staff made it such a nice experience. We had the prohibition brunch which is such a great deal for a yummy experience. They even gave him a little birthday sundae on the house which was really kind of them! It was the perfect treat to top off our brunch. He left feeling happy and very full! We’ll definitely be back in the future.

The food was amazing - the only problem being too many things sounded like a must have! Several trips back are in order to worth through the menu and taste everything.

The staff was fantastic - personable, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful when members of our small party couldn't decide on what to order.

Ambiance was great - cool space, and a sweet vibe.

We'll definitely be back soon!

Great service and ambience, however, my veggie burger did not hold it's shape at all. It literally fell apart so I had to use a fork. Tasted really good, though. Also, not very happy that the servers did not use tongs, they used their fingers to put garnishes on drinks.

This is a place full of fluff, $25.00 for brunch per person. What you get, coffee and 2nd beverage, a tinny muffin then two eggs with hash browns which it took 3 tries to get the eggs right, then a cookie. Really??? This is a complete disappointment to me and my friend..!!!!

The feedback overwhelmingly has been that $25 for homemade bread (was a muffin when here), choice of main, coffee, choice of beverage (milkshake, alcoholic or juice) and sweet finish are a great deal!
