Dinner: T-Su 5:00pm-10:00pm
Hands down top five restaurants in San Francisco by far. The food was delicious, the service was phenomenal, and the warm patio seating makes a world of difference. It truly was a fable, or a storybook turned magical. Five stars.
Great ambiance on the back patio. Food was solid. My fiancé had the Vegan lasagne, which they are famous for, and it was amazing (something I don’t usually find myself saying about vegan food).
Enjoyed a great brunch on a really nice and cozy patio.
Our server (Adria) was awesome!! Super knowledgeable about wine- and was able to match our tastes to meals perfectly.
We had the mussels as an app, and the pork chop and chicken as entrees. Both were PERFECT.
Outside seating is gorgeous. Amazing vibe.
The only negative thing was they sat a family (with a kid) next to us mid-way through dining and that took away from our quiet date night atmosphere we had going on prior.
Would DEFINITELY go back. Interested to see how it is for brunch.
Love eating here!
Every time that I have been here, the food has been outstanding! I am pretty picky with my eggs and being a pescatarian, I have found not many places know how to make flavorful veggie omelets. However, Fable's eggs were absolutely delicious. I also had the pleasure of splitting entrees with a friend and can say their pancakes were worth the splurge -- such a treat. The exceptional food, combined with the lovely garden setting (and the fact that they take reservations), makes this one of my top brunch spots in the entire Bay. My only request is to PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add an espresso machine to your armamentarium. That would seal the deal for the #1 spot... because brunch, no matter how delightful, just isn't the same without my (non drip) coffee :)
Best restaurant in the Castro. Great people great food
I recommend the vegan lasagne but other items are ordinary. The pork chop was hard to cut.
Great atmosphere on the back patio. Delicious chicken sandwich and steak and eggs benedict.
Great food and great service every time.
The service was great! It was quiet on a Saturday evening and the food tasted good. I will return again definitely
Service was very good. The meatballs were fantastic, but the pork accompaniment was a bit all over the place. Beer and wine were solid.
Beautiful Sunday ! Had a delicious brunch on the patio. Everything was perfect !!
Wonderful restaurant with small menu with great ambiance and service. Definitely will be back.
Had the fried chicken sandwich and steak and eggs Benedict. Steak cooked beautifully, sauce was delicious, Bread wasn’t great choice for Benedict (Texas toast? Not sure). Partner’s Fried chicken sandwich needed more flavor and spice. Bland unfortunately. Coffee service needs a spoon! Great servers. Love the patio - have only been here for brunch.
A delicious meal and good service.
An ingredient for my dish was substituted for another one, which I happened to be allergic to, and I was not informed. I had to ask the waiter if a substitution had occurred after I noticed it in the dish. He was unapologetic. I sent it back and got a different dish, yet the restaurant still charged me. I left a voicemail for the manager about my situation to give him or her the opportunity to get in touch before I wrote a review, but no one reached out.
This was a lovely find for a Friday date night. The food was spectacular, as was the outdoor patio ambiance. The little gem Caesar salad was perfectly dressed. I had the roasted chicken breast which was scrumptious, juicy, and packed with flavor. My partner ordered the pork chop topped with grilled peach and served on a bed of roasted eggplant. Both portions were generous. Only downside is the server forgot to box the leftover pork chop. Definitely will be back to this neighborhood gem!
It was closed. They did not respect our reservation. We arrived before the time and it was closed. Really bad.
Great service. Solid quality on food.
The patio is fantastic but that was about it. The food is soso in our opinion. I’d skip it and try something better outside the Castro.
Very vibrant and friendly, excellent service! although we had a reservation, we had to wait in line and in order of folks who I do not think had a reservation but were seated 15 minutes after our reservation which was fine.
I love this restaurant's casual atmosphere, tasty menu items and fresh mimosas. Dining on the back patio is like being transported out of the city to a tropical paradise!
Beautiful dog friendly Garden patio! Delicious food.
The food I ordered was good but my friends was not. The appetizers and small plates are the best bet if you don't eat meat.
I really liked the outside ambiance of this restaurant. I was meeting old friends whom I hadn't seen for a year, so we wanted a quiet place to talk. The back patio was quite uncrowded on a Friday afternoon. Our server was very pleasant and efficient. The food was good, although a bit pricey.
Servers are lovely. The back garden is great!
I've dinned at fable about a dozen times now. i'm never disappointed. Always great food and always superb service. Love the fact the noise level is always low . My favorite restaurant in the Castro and maybe San Francisco.
Very lovely first date; the waiter had to interrupt us several times to get our order... our apologies to him.
Not great food. Nice atmosphere but the food was adequate to not very good. Nothing special for the prices.
Slow sloppy service. Chaotic. The cheeseburger for brunch had cheap yellow American cheese. Yuk! Lovely patio, but poor service and mediocre food don’t make up. Won’t return or recommend.
Fable is our new favorite place! We love the food and service! Excellent place for small get togethers!
Was a great night full of celebration and good food! Glad I found this place, also found a great dessert wine because of it!
First time here for brunch and it was awesome!!!
Delicious food and drinks. Love the patio
We drove from the Central Valley to celebrated Pride and escape the heat! Fable was out first stop for the day, the food and service set the tone for them day! GREAT!
We started with fried banana 🍌 bread 🍞 DELICIOUS! We then shared a bay Shrimp omelette and French Toast with fresh berries and home made whipped cream that was amazing with the French Toast and syrup!
Service was attentive and friendly, we’ll be back!!
We dined on squash blossoms and duck that was very well prepared, our server was good, there when you needed her, and not there when not needed. We've also enjoyed brunch here, worth checking out. We'll be back.
First time at Fable and I hope to be back. Good food, nice presentation and intense flavors. I had the duck breast, perfectly medium rare and succulent. My partner’s halibut was tender and flaky. They offer wine recommendations, which I followed, and was very happy with my choice. And get the squash blossoms if they have them - awesome. Overall a great spot for a good meal in the Castro.
Great local restaurant for taking a break from shopping or going to the theater.
Wonderful drinks and dessert with great service!
Great neighborhood spot.
Thank you so much for having us celebrate a surprise party for a close friend’s upcoming graduation! I’m sure we were a bit extra with our banners and table decor, but sincerely was grateful for Fable to allow us to decorate the space of ours. Our friend loved it and appreciated the kindness and service of Fable :-)
