The food was fresh and absolutely delicious. The service was excellent and attentive without being over-bearing. Our server even took extra time to look up answers about the flavors in the beer my husband ordered. My husband stated that this is the best meal he has ever had, period. Although this restaurant is is a 1.5 hour drive from us, but we will definitely be returning.

Very nice evening at La Fable. A quiet alternative to rambunctious Rehoboth. The food was decent, I would not say outstanding but the overall experience was very good.

The service was exceptional and the chef is to be commended! We are local and find no need to drive to DC to savor french inspired cuisine.

The atmosphere is delightful and the service is outstanding. We have been there several times and always enjoy our meals. Our waitress was very attentive without being intrusive. She followed up to make certain everyone was enjoying their meal. Staff were unobtrusive and respectful when offering water, wine, bread. The French cabernet was very good. Our server noticed one person had not finished, so she came by again to make certain that he was satisfied with his entrée (which he was). I had the trout amandine which was delicious, moist and a larger portion than I expected. One friend had the escargot and the scallops and raved about them (and he is a foodie). The other two people both had the steak au poivre, but both said the meat was not as tender as expected, but the sauce was excellent. We shared crème brulee for dessert. All in all, it was a very good meal, and I highly recommend it. Every place can have an "off" entrée at times, so this will not keep us away.

Lovely meal, everything superbly prepared, beautifully presented, Unpretentious yet refined service. Somewhat close quarters and elevated noise level were only detractors, but would definitely visit again!

We had a delightful dining experience at La Fable. Everything from the amazing fresh French bread to our interesting cocktails (loved the French 75 with champagne and cognac!) and our entrees was delicious. The duck was succulent and flavorful, the halibut divine over its bed of vegetables. Peter, our waiter, was knowledgeable, personable, and "present" without our being over-fussy. The decor reminded us of the charm of French cafes - it was a perfect place for a birthday celebration.

Very enjoyable experience. Halibut could have been cooked a little less, but I think that is just nitpicking when a restaurant is as good as Fable.

Bouillabaisse was so salty that I have to ask for sugar to dilute it. Every single mussels were bad( not fresh) . Clams and mussels were over cooked that you can’t pull it out from the shell.

Trout with almonds and haricots verts especially delish, along with giant chocolate mousse and creme brulee. Slightly above the halibut ratatouille and beef tartare appetizer. Great service and ambiance as well.

My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary. They surprised us with a glass of champagne when we arrived. The service and food were outstanding. My only complaint, we were seated at the front of the restaurant where they have a long wooden bench which we shared with another table. The bench was hard and uncomfortable. Also, the back of the bench would move when people sitting on it moved.

a lovely experience, as always. Trout almondine and halibut were wonderful. Their house salad of radicchio and dried fruit and cheese was not your typical lettuce and tomato experience. Tables are tight, but it’s a small place with a cafe ambience.

This is a cozy, romantic little restaurant that made for a lovely night out. Our drinks were good, and our waitress was excellent. Quite simply, my dinner was one the best I've had. The chicken cordon bleu was spectacular, as was the duck my date ordered. The creme brulee was perfect too!

Verry good meal with excellent service. Meal was well paced. Duck and Steak frites were good. Frites were not crispy which is the only reason I would not rate higher. Peppercorn sauce was well prepared any had great flavor. Excellent bottle of wine at a reasonable price. Will definitely go back!

La Fable generates European class in a beach resort setting. The service is above par and the food is excellent. The unique French feel makes the experience that much better. I will definitely return and recommend it to friends and family that are seeking that one-of-a-kind dining experience. Anyone looking for excellent dining must stop at La Fable.

Our party of 4 was promptly seated & made to feel very welcome. The champagne & Merlot were delicious. The escargot & Caesar salad was equally good. The chicken cordon bleu was outstanding & a very large portion. The slowly braised beef was also prepared quite well with a delectable flavor. To finish off an excellent meal, the creme brulee was wonderful, as was the apple crisp. The waiter was knowledgeable about the menus & the service was superb. The decorations are tastefully done & have a French feel to them. This place is perfect for a special occasion!
