Service was a bit off. We were seated promptly but no salt and pepper. When the pepper dispenser came, it was empty (they got us a new one). Asked for bread, and that took a 2nd request, and then it came promptly.

Atmosphere was warm and friendly. They have done a nice job of creating a nice outdoor patio setting. We sat indoors and our server, Kimberly was excellent. She was friendly, helpful and attentive. The food was outstanding. The bruschetta special was savory, sweet and delicious. We both had pasta dishes which were excellent. The Crème Brule, a house specialty, did not disappoint. Look forward to returning.

Service (Rebecca and Steven) was outstanding. Off menu appetizer special, cherry burrata bruschetta was fantastic! Dietary preferences (no pork/pasta) make their menu a bit of a challenge. Wish they would add another seafood dish, or offer a seafood special more frequently. However, their cocktail menu is exceptional!

Everything was delicious. The portions were small, but to us that was an advantage. Our only complaint was that some of our food came out warm and not hot. Super service, very fast and yummy.

We made a reservation and were seated promptly. Everything was amazing! My rose cocktail was delicious and even had a flower in the ice cube. The 3 adults each ordered the short ribs and they were fabulous! My mom said it was the best meal she has had in a long time. Both kids were happy with their meals of chicken strips and buttered noodles. Service was top notch. This is our favorite local restaurant. If you haven’t been yet, you definitely need to try Fabian’s.

It isn’t comfortable. I’m not overweight like so many people are. I would just like to have some room & b comfortable. The lady that seats people is nice, but could have been friendlier She did try 2 b sure we were happy w/ our seating after we basically picked ourselves, & seated ourselves. But I could tell she was feeling overwhelmed. Having no bartender is really bad. Servers were doing their own bartending. So then she finally got a girl to help me taste a couple wines 2 decide what I wanted served at our table. What if people want to come in & sit at the bar for a couple glasses of wine & maybe have a snack. I’ve been at this restaurant quite a lot n the past & the service & everything was so much better. I didn’t really feel welcome this time. It was like things were a bother. 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️ very strange way to run a popular restaurant. I have a lot of friends that go out a lot too & will not like hearing what my experience was like. And I had a tummy ache that evening, wondering if the prawns were actually fresh or not 🤢

We find Fabians is the perfect place to do this. The service is very good, but not imposing, the atmosphere, we love, and thepeople who greet us and serve us are very good (hang on to those ladies). We will be back.
