We had visited for our anniversary dinner, and had a great experience. The food was great, the atmosphere was awesome. It was nicely decorated and heated on the patio, didn’t get cold at all.
Would highly recommend, and will be coming back again.
Terrific outdoor patio! Heaters everywhere and covered. The location was great! Food was good. Limited menus and food was good.
Lovely ambiance, service and overall experience. Would definitely recommend.
We had three exceptional dishes that evening. The only part we had some issue is in the appetizer. We had the crab cakes which were very good but we only got 2 cakes and there was three of us. They were normal size, but the price was way too high for just 2. Service was very good and the outdoor sitting was comfortable and the ambiance was nice with enough heaters to keep us warm. I definitely recommend.
We were celebrating our nuptials at the courthouse with my father and sister. It was a wonderful, delicious experience. Love the staff and ambiance.
What a excellent meal. All 4 of us had the Sunday dinner special. It was not only wonderful but seemed like a great value. The Cesar salad, pasta, and dessert were excellent. Can’t wait to go try another menu item. We will definitely go back.
My wife had the ink pasta with a marinara/sausage sauce and she did not care for it. I had the pork chop over polenta and it was outstanding, though the pork chop was a little over cooked.
Dining on the patio is so romantic! There are plenty of heaters. We had the crab cakes for an appetizer, so crispy and delicious. The cherry lemon drop is fantastic complete with a luxardo cherry. I had salmon which was cooked to perfection. The fingerling potatoes were delicious. Our server, Brett is knowledgeable and friendly. Fantastic evening.
this is one restaurant we want to keep going. It's our "regular" neighborhood eat out place. The atmosphere is magical, and the food and service are top rate.
We absolutely loved your restaurant. We went with good friends and we were so comfortable, and really enjoyed the food.
This weeks special was amazing. It was a filet that was cooked to perfection with brussel sprouts and smashed potatoes.
Chef is awesome, can't get enough of his food.
Always a wonderful experience to go there.
Love the salmon. Cooked perfectly moist. It’s the only dish I’ve ever ordered at Fabian’s. Served with very tasty & creamy fingerling potatoes. An excellent meal. Like the Caesar salad too. The patio has been expanded & it’s beautiful. Very calming & peaceful. Love the wood panels, stringed lights & trees. Can’t wait to return.
It was a most enjoyable dining experience. We will be back!
The short ribs are to die for!!! This is our go to Italian rest. in Fair Oaks!
The waiter was wonderful and attentive. The ambiance was beautiful. The food was amazing. Can’t wait to go back!
Ambiance, food and service was exceptional!
A mixed group of widowed friends got together for Halloween and had a wonderful time.
We’ve been to Fabian’s twice & had enjoyed their dinners again. The service, food & menu choices were all very good. We enjoyed our meal & the server was very congenial!
Beautiful atmosphere, wonderful service and fabulous food!!
We had a fabulous evening & dinner on the patio! What a great job you did creating a beautiful ambiance!

I have had brunch, lunch and dinner and all are awesome.

Fabian’s has mastered Covid protection. Dining outdoors in their expanded patio is magical. Well plAced heaters and fireplaces keep guests comfortable. The food was excellent as always. We love Wine Wednesday with no corkage fee.
Went there for the first time with our daughter & son in law for birthday brunch. Liked it so much went back 2 times that week. Can't wait to go again! Kimberly is a terrific waitress
Solid restaurant in all categories. Outside dining of course, but nice patio area.
They have expanded the outside patio area and it is awesome. The food is always delicious and the staff is superb! Treat yourself!
Food was fabulous and the new outdoor patio was magical.
The patio is beautiful on a fall evening with heaters if it's a bit chilly too. Rigatoni special is always a favorite.
Jake, our waiter, was great...quickly there if needed but not hovering! Only reason I put 4 instead of 5 stars for food was that I really don't care for any spiciness and shrimp were spicier than I anticipated (I should have asked about that). And ambiance was fine, just so very different from what used to be the norm, i.e. inside we were enclosed on 3 sides with a 5 foot (?) separation "wall". I think we'll eat outside next time.
The patio and evening ambiance is perfect! The menu is small - 8 dinner menu choices plus 2 specials. My husband had a hard time finding something he wanted. The service is great. Would definitely go back.
A lovely evening of outdoor dining despite COVID-19 restrictions.
Good food, service, and atmosphere. COVID guidelines are observed and we felt safe and comfortable In the lovely expanded outdoor patio. This was a much needed and appreciated meal out.
We enjoyed our lunch in a serene atmosphere. Food and service were impeccable as always!
I’ve been bringing my co-workers here to get them a great dining out experience. Many have said they will bring their families back! The food is always great (I’m trying the salmon next time!), the service is outstanding, and the outdoor seating is comfortable.
We always go there for special occasions. We highly recommended Fabians
Fabian's is our "go to" restaurant. Always great service, great food, and a variety on the menu. This last time we visited it was a comfortable Tuesday evening outdoors on the fabulous patio. We opted to have salads followed by an appetizer as our entre. Excellent! And the wine list has numerous choices in each wine type. Desserts are inventive and delicious.
Beautiful outdoor area - not a parking lot! Service was excellent. We never felt rushed. Food was great! Somewhat expensive but worth it! Great night out without the kids!!!!!
We enjoyed it so much we booked a larger party for Halloween.
The setting is very nice, and the tables well spaced.
