- A JEWEL IN BLUFFTON, INGiGis4HatsDined on 9/13/2014This was our first time here and it was certainly worth the drive from Ft Wayne. For a small town like Bluffton, IN , this place is a pleasant jewel of a surprise. The steaks were out of this world good!! All food presentations were delightful and the salads were presented in small while porcelain bowls for a nice touch. I had the creamy mushroom soup which was very,very good but a bit too salty which I'm sure will be remedied n the future. The birthday cake for our friend was decadent! We will definitely go again. Thank you Terciell W. Schwartz for a grand night!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Welcome SurpriseSchmoozerDined on 7/31/2014We made a lunch reservation here after a tip from Open Table, drove just over 100 miles from Indianapolis area. Arrived at booked time, greeted by owner - Never open for lunch, despite Open Table reservation! Without skipping beat, shown to cozy table in otherwise empty restaurant, treated to delightful 3-course Lunch, welcome conversation! Very high quality, interesting, well prepared locally sourced food. Luscious desserts made by owner's Grandma. Exceptional hospitality won the day! No one could expect welcoming accommodation of hungry out-of-towners during off hours. Will definitely returnSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great...as always!!NewToTownDined on 5/31/2014TW Favle never dissapoints. They have a diverse menu but I always get the same thing. The prime rib is not like any you'll ever have. My wife loves the crab cakes and I love the left over crab cakes. You won't be able to finish them. Each one is the size of a thick 10 oz. filet. We will be back!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- road trip from indyDoctrinsDined on 5/31/2014The crab cakes were almost the size of hockey pucks. Pure crab no fillers. A MUST try. The wine recommendation was spot on.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Always worth the driveJcarterDined on 2/22/2014Depending on traffic it takes us about 50 min to get here but has always been worth the trip. This is one if our go-to spots for not only a special occasion but when we have company in town or during nice summer nights want a nice drive from ft wayne. It is especially fun to see guests trying to figure out where we are going when we come to the small town of bluffton. They are very surprised when we walk in and they see the restaurant for the first time. The. Are more surprised when they try the food.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- First timers...DeniseHelmerDined on 2/14/2014TW Fables was given to us as a gift. Found it to be very "new yorkish" to our liking. Servers were very kind and helped us with our questions. The beautiful fresh and lovely flowers at each table were upscale. The pianist was superb. Loved the ambience. The appetizer crab cakes were to die for and could have been the entree. We will be back even if just for the wine bar and crab cakes!! The owner was energetic and very personable. Nice job!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- OUTSTANDING JEWEL OF A RESTAURANTJim2VIPDined on 12/20/2013TW Fable in Bluffton truly is a jewel of a restaurant. I'd like to describe it in great detail for all readers but instead will throw out a challenge instead. If you are a foodie and always want a great atmosphere whether with a group, family, friends or for a romantic evening, then you have to try out this place. There's my challenge to all readers!Special Features:
- 32Years'n'countingJustUsDined on 12/20/2013Reservations super easy on open table. We arrived early and we were seated promptly and as requested. Our first visit. Details were amazing. Food fabulous! Wish we would have started coming here a long time ago. FriendlySpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great friends and Great foodJim2VIPDined on 12/11/2013Met up with some terrific friends at TW Fable in Bluffton, IN and had a superlative evening. Our plan was to get together for just an hour because our busy workweek but the food, service, wine and ambiance begged us to stay. So, after over 3 hours of conversing and emerging our senses in extraordinary fare, we finally made it out the door. Our promise? To back to TW Fable as soon as humanly possible :) LOVE THIS PLACE!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- I LOVE THIS PLACEJim2VIPDined on 12/11/2013Stopped by TW Fable for lunch as they just opened between 11-2 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Wow, what an awesome lunch we had. My wife had a parmesan checking breast that was out of this world; both flavorful and juicy. I had a great salad called blackened chicken berry. Mmmmm, the flavors engulfed my senses!! Must go!!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A real find in BlufftonintrepidTravelerVIPDined on 12/5/2013We did not expect to find a fine restaurant in tiny Bluffton, IN. TW Fable had hosted a large party earlier in the evening and were sold out of a couple of menu items, which just indicates to me that the food is fresh and well managed. We enjoyed everything from the sensational crab cakes to steak and fish. The owner manages the front and is quite genial. A large complimentary slice of cake was brought to my best friend, whose birthday we were celebrating.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice but not so nice.BrandonDined on 11/22/2013Service was great. More than expected. Very nice restaraunt, just reminded me of East of Chicago for obvious reasons. No problem there. Food on the otherhand was not so great. This is from only one visit so maybe I just got the wrong thing but, did not enjoy the taste and left hungry.
- Great place for meetings/work itemsJim2VIPDined on 11/15/2013We've used restaurants throughout Wells and Allen county but this place is the tops. We had the perfect setting for interviewing an HR candidate for our company. We'll return to this restaurant more often; not just for dinner but for work related reasons as well.Special Features:
- ConsistencyJim2VIPDined on 11/13/2013Our food is consistently great at this gem of a restaurant. People really need to spend the 2 hour drive from Indy or half hour drive from Fort Wayne to come and check this place out. It's fantastic!! The owner loves to mingle with everyone in the restaurant so don't be surprised if you find yourself facebooking with him :)Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Filet-tastic !!Jim2VIPDined on 11/6/2013I'm certainly a carnivore and am always seeking a great filet. TW Fable cooks up a perfect filet at medium rare. I have probably had 10 or 12 over the past 6 months and each has been PERFECT medium rare. And the tenderness is incredible. Don't know how they do it but they do!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Their ever changing menu leavesJim2VIPDined on 10/30/2013Their ever changing menu leaves me mystified with marvelous new tastes. One of their latest Martini creations is called NEON LIGHTS. It's a must have for those wanting something a bit tropical!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Several side dishes are very saltyHeygetyournumnumsDined on 10/24/2013After tasting several side dishes that were shared among our party, we concluded that they were on the very salty side, rice, mushrooms, mashed potatoes. Next time I will ask the waitress if there is a way to get these with less salt.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
