Accommodating server; food and table were great - looking forward to trying more items!
Seating by the window can be distracting, as people walking by can look right at you and vice versa. Maybe one-way glass might be an option.
Not the fault of the restaurant, but walking to it from the west is a bit of an obstacle course due to the current construction for the underground rapid transit. The bus stops that used to be right in front of the restaurant have been moved for now to the next block of Broadway east of Main Street.
Absolutely amazing and organized!! Will definitely be back many more times :)
Thanks for your visit and excellent review. Hope we see you back many times.
Bustling diner atmosphere with good food and service!
Thank you for your kind comments about our service and delicious food, Rory. Look forward to seeing you here again.
Brunch was fresh, delicious, and arrived in less time than it took me to decide in the first place. My mate ate all, and I reluctantly left a morsel on my plate for appearances. Server was lovely and appeared at all the right moments. A nice little oasis hidden in the chaos of Main and Broadway:)
Screw appearances! Thank you for the visit and great review Tali.
Stopped in on my way home from work.
Had the Kale Caesar salad and a chicken poutine. Both were very tasty. Washed it all down with a cucumber beer spritzer. That too was delicious.
Definitely be back again when in the area.
Thank you for your feedback, Damian. It’s good you enjoyed your experience at Fable Diner and appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. We’re happy to have customers like you. Best wishes.
I kind of expected more
The menu was a bit thin
We appreciate your visit and honest review, Tim. Our goal is to make you happy. We hope to see you again soon.
Fantastic weekend brunch! I love this diner on Sunday for their $25 prohibition brunch … best deal in town
We are so happy about your excellent review, Lisa. Thank you for appreciating our Prohibition brunch. Look forward to having you back.
Fable Diner has the pandemic protocol dialed to perfection. Easy vaccination record checks, quick seating, friendly service, fast delivery of a delicious, quality meal. Particularly tasty tomato soup, crispy fries, and well dressed salad. I look forward to returning!
Service was excellent. Food was okay. Mini donuts were hard empty balls. Chocolate peanut butter cupcake was nothing special. Meatloaf was tasty but we thought we could make a better one. Ordered the steak, kale caesar with fried chicken, 2 meatloaf dinners, roasted duck pancake, cauliflower gratin, vanilla caramel milkshake.
Amazing food and outstanding value! Will definitely return😊
We appreciate your review. It’s a pleasure to know that you enjoyed our locally sourсed house-made food. Look forward to seeing you here again.
My partner and I were very excited to check out Fable Diner since we both really enjoy Fable Kitchen. Unfortunately the quality and service weren’t up to par. Their website is a bit confusing and we didn’t realize until we showed up that it was a set brunch menu. I ordered the French toast which seemed like it wasn’t even dipped in egg at all. It was just a really thick piece of fried bread with toppings. The scones before the meal were over cooked and the biscotti at the end of the meal was undercooked. The coffee was fine and my cocktail (the bees knees) was great, but my partner was really disappointed in her Caesar. We had to remind the server multiple times for water that was only brought to us about halfway through our meals, and we ordered a side of tostis that we never got (and thankfully weren’t charged for). Unfortunately I don’t think I’d go to this location again.
Stephanie, thank you for your review and for the compliment to your drink. We’re sorry to hear that your experience was not of the quality you expected. Our team always aims to deliver a great experience and we are gutted when we miss the mark. We will use the feedback to make us better. Hope you will give us another chance to make things right. Thank you.
Grilled Cheezus with Pulled Pork and a side of Tomato Soup - best comfort food ever!
We appreciate your kind words about our house-made grilled cheeses with pulled pork and tomato soup. Thank you very much for your visit, and I hope to see you back in the future.
Family in town

Very pleased with our meals and the service. Try the Mac and Cheese and their milkshakes!

Food was amazing, service was fantastic. We will be back for sure!
Hi, Janice! Thank you for your kind review. We are blessed with good people. Best wishes.
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!
Thanks for celebrating with us. We are happy to have guests like you. Regards!
Thanks for celebrating with us. Look forward to seeing you again. Happy Thanksgiving!
Excellent breakfast menu, great tines and decor. We had huevos rancheros and the feature Benny. Fabulous eats.
Thanks for your visit and positive review. It’s pleasure to hear how much you enjoyed our house-made dishes. We look forward to serving you here again.
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.
Damian, we are really grateful to receive such a great review, thank you. Look forward to seeing you here again.
Prohibition Brunch. Really good
Keri, the team here is happy to receive a good review, thank you. We are glad you liked our Prohibition Brunch. Look forward to seeing you here again.
Awesome service. Easy to get a reservation. Food was delicious.
Jess, thanks for the great review. We really appreciate choosing Fable Diner and helping to share the word about us. Best wishes!
The prohibition brunch was a banger!
Although the duck pancake is a bit over hyped. Reccomend getting the huevos or Benny.
Isabella, we appreciate your review of our Prohibition brunch. Thank you very much for your visit, and I hope to see you back in the future.
Prohibition Brunch is a cool deal. Great service, thoughtful dishes, good prices!
Leila, thanks for the feedback. We are glad that you had a great experience.
Fantastic burgers and shakes! We had no trouble getting a reservation in a weeknight and the place was quiet. Very personable service, food came out fast and was delicious.
Hi, Lisa! Thanks so much for your positive feedback and good vibes. Looking forward to your next visit.
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.
Thanks for your feedback. Our priorities are to serve delicious food and provide friendly service. I’m so glad you appreciate it. Your opinion is very important for us and your concerns are noted. Look forward to seeing you again.
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.
Thanks for celebrating with us. I’m happy you and your boyfriend enjoyed our Prohibition brunch. Look forward to seeing you again.
Such a great spot - went for Le Burger Week and it did not disappoint! Staff were super friendly
Thank you for taking part in Le Burger Week and the excellent rating
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!
Thanks for the great review!
Fantastic meal, best crispy chicken sandwich I have ever eaten. We were with out of towners and they loved the vibe, food and staff.
Our team is thrilled to receive such a great review. Thanks and have a good day!
Wanted to try a new place to eat that we have been following on social media.
Really enjoyed the food, drinks and dessert.
Will be back for sure.
I’m happy to see that you had a 5-Star experience at Fable Diner. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice day!
Prohibition Sunday brunch was tasty and good value!
Thanks for the 5-star review, Kim. We are happy that you liked our Prohibition brunch. Our priorities are to serve local, delicious, house-made food and provide safe and friendly service. Hope to see you here again!
We came two weeks in a row. Will say the previous week was definitely a better experience than yesterday. The rosti was the best! However when we had it yesterday it could’ve been better. Tasted as if the rosti sat under a lamp for a bit?
Thanks for your feedback. I'm glad you liked our rosti and I'm sorry to hear of your perception about this during your last visit. I hope this was mentioned at the time so we could find the source of this and get you a new one. The staff is mandated to do what we can to see you leave happy. I do hope to see you here again.
Very friendly service and great food. Good value too.
Paul, thanks for your review! We're thrilled that you're happy and enjoyed our house-made food and friendly service. Looking forward to your next visit.
We LOVE Fable Diner! The Prohibition Brunch hits the sport every time, and Ron and his team are so welcoming. The belated birthday celebration was made even sweeter by the surprise Birthday Sundae candle - thanks guys, you're the best! :)
Thanks for your trust, we're thankful for amazing customers like you. Have a great day!
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.
Thanks for the visit. Your feedback matters!
Came here with my girlfriends for a birthday brunch! Their prohibition brunch is such a good deal! Our waitress was super sweet and accommodating when our party was running late. They even gave me a sundae on the house! Loved our experience here, I’ll definitely be back!
Thanks for celebrating with us. I’m happy you enjoyed our house-made brunch and friendly service. Look forward to seeing you again.
Great character and absolutely top notch if you are looking for a casual dinner. Great bottle of wine for just $20!!
Thanks for your review. We're thrilled that you're happy, and we're looking forward to your next visit.
Had a great brunch experience. Service was excellent; food was plentiful and tasty. No complaints here.
Thanks for the visit. Your feedback matters!
Awesome classic diner with upscale options but still feels like a classic diner experience. Super tasty food.
Thank you for such an amazing review, Michael. It’s a pleasure to know that you enjoyed our freshly made, locally sourced food and that it came across in taste. We hope to see you soon.
