This was mine and my husband’s first night (and time) in Rehoboth. Food and drinks were amazing, staff was so friendly, and service was superb. If you’re looking for somewhere pretty nice to eat and not too familiar with the area, would recommend if you like trying new foods.

We loved our experience at La Fable! Our waitress was friendly and helpful, and everything we ordered was delicious and of a generous portion. Definitely a very busy time for them during the summer so service was a little slow at times but we weren’t trying to rush through dinner anyways. Just plan for it to be an entire experience and enjoy it! Definitely save 15% stomach space at the end for dessert and espresso.

We have been to this restaurant a few times. During our visit last evening, let's just say it was not up to the quality we experienced in the past. The food was good, not great. The same can be said for the service. We had several different appetizers and entrees, so, we were able to sample several things from the menu. Of note, the beef tartare was "mushy", the chicken was dry, the scallops were over cooked and (for my taste) over sauced/spiced. The creme brûlée was average, or perhaps even a bit less than average.
Service was haphazard with a clearly disorganized staff. Everyone was very friendly, just not as competent as we have experienced previously in this restaurant.
Again, the bottom line,,, good, not great. A bit disappointing for a place that we enjoyed immensely in the past.

What a wonderful meal. Service was excellent the staff was top notch the bar made a delicious french martini we enjoyed the most perfect escargot Ive ever tasted a delicious cheese plate fois gras . Split between the 4 of us Then entrees so good the beef Bourguignon, the duck ,a special of Bouillabaisse and the steak frites. All were excellent as everyone enjoyed tasting each dish then somehow we ate dessert creme brulee.
Im so stuffed but my goodness it was worth it. Victoria was our server and she was great but the stars of the night was the team everyone working so well together they made a complex dinner service look like a breeze.

We have been to this restaurant many times and have loved it. The service is excellent and the food very good. This was the first time I had to send an entree back to the kitchen to be reheated which was surprising. The prices have also gone up, and all entrees now the same price, so we probably won’t be back as often. It’s a lovely restaurant but now a pricey one.

The food is always delicious. My husband and I shared a cheese plate. And a bottle of wine. He had the trout and I, the duck. Sonia was our server and she was professional and vigilant. We try to eat at FableTwo or three times a year it is always a special treat.

Lovely place for a special occasion. The menu has classic French offerings and there was a bouillabaisse special offered on the night we visited. We were seated outdoors, on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant, shaded by umbrellas. Service was gracious and friendly in the European style. We’ll be back!

We celebrated our friends 40th birthday and every thing about the dining experience was absolutely wonderful. The servers were super friendly, they gave us complimentary champagne and the dishes were spectacular. To give context, we're from NY and consider ourselves to be somewhat difficult but this restaurant was flawless. Also my boyfriend is a French classically trained chef and I called him afterwards to rave about it! Order the cheese plate, it was Pinterest perfection! Salmon was top and the scallops were wonderful.

Our first time dining at LaFable was very enjoyable! We shared the fromage platter as our appetizer. It was very delicious. We both selected Coquilles St. Jacque as our entree and it was amazing. I selected the lemon meringue parfait for dessert. If you love lemon/lime curd, you will love this! I was off in what I imagined the dessert to be! I was thinking a light lemony dessert, but my guess was incorrect. That was on me, not LaFable! I also had a delicious French martini with a blackberry liqueur. We will definitely return.
