Trout and pork chop were seated on a bed of sides that overpowered the meats. The barbecue sauce was far too abundant and potent for the pork chop, cheapened the dish. The corn under the fish also too plentiful and became the predominant flavor of the dish.
Stopped here on the way to the coast for our anniversary. The menu is fairly simple, yet very well executed. Excellent stop for lunch. The back garden is beautiful, and the staff is very friendly.
Much improved experience from my last lunchtime visit. I'll be visiting this weekend with some friends. I really love the food (especially dinner), service, and ambiance. Thanks for a great lunch.
Such a cute vibe - the food is amazing and the staff is unique and like no other.
Fable is consistently good for brunch or dinner.
One of my favorite neighborhood spots.
Fable has delicious food and friendly staff members. Their chocolate mousse is absolute perfection and my go to dessert! Never disappointed at Fable!
I am becoming a regular. This is my 5th visit in 2 month. This is also the first time I received poor service. The server came to our table once to take the order. I order a side salad which never came. My server was no where to be found so I could ask where my salad was. He eventually came at the end of the meal after we flagged him down for our check. I asked about the salad and he completely forgot about it. I'm still a fan, but was surprised by the service.
Hi Mario, thanks for coming in to see us so much lately! We love our regulars. We really apologize that our customer service was a bit off when you came in most recently. We always aim to be attentive and available to our customers as we hope you have experienced in past visits. We hope to see you again soon so that we can make it up to you.
Good good and pleasant, smiling staff who seem happy to help customers. Sitting in the patio was a relaxing experience.
A true neighborhood gem. Best fried chicken sandwich. Cool backyard garden. Always much appreciated and enjoyed.
Anchovies missing from Ceasar salad
Asked for separate bills (party of four)
Twice. Waiter split bill. Not what we asked for
Hi Gary, thanks for coming in for lunch. We're sorry that we missed the anchovies on your Ceasar salad. Next time please let us know and we will make it right if an ingredient is missing from your dish. Apologies for the mix-up with settling the bill for your party. We hope that you all had a wonderful time and plan to join us again soon.
Intimate patio dining with new American menu. Fabulous floral/plant atmosphere with heated lamps to overcome the wind.
Great ambiance. Great food. Great service.
My second time there. I love the outside patio. Cosy place, yummy food, great drinks.
Great food and even better ambience especially the patio. Even on a cold day, the patio feels great.
Fable is my favorite neighbor spot: consistent, hard working friendly staff with a lovely plant filled patio. A few specials might prove a nice addition, the happy hour offerings need work and who offers a charcuterie plate where you pay extra for bread or crackers? Hard to get in without a reservation, good problem. They deserve our SUPPORT!
Good food each time.
Great ambience, good food, friendly staff. Watch out for time limit on your table. Is that a new thing?
Thanks for coming in, we're thrilled to hear that you thought the ambience, food and staff were all great! Fable as well as many other popular restaurants in downtown SF had to put time limits on tables since we re-opened from COVID lockdown. This was initially due to limited capacity in restaurants but is now primarily because Fable is a small restaurant and we are trying to accommodate the huge increase in demand for outdoor dining. We hope you understand and will be back to see us soon.
Service was almost non existent on a thurs AM—no check ins at all—but lovely place
Hi there, we are glad to hear that you think our garden patio is a lovely place! We think so too. We are sorry that our staff missed the mark with being attentive and available when you were in for lunch on Thursday. We will address this with our team as we want all of our guests to feel taken care of so they have everything that they need to enjoy their meal. We hope to see you again soon.
Great outdoor patio, amazing desserts, great selection of cocktails
We were urged to vacate our table early by the host because the next table arrived 15 minutes. Each table is supposed to have a two hour slot and they awkwardly shoved us out at the end of dinner when we were trying to visit with our friends.
Hi Courtney, we sincerely apologize that you felt rushed out from your table at the end of your dinner. We want all of our guests to feel welcomed to take their time and enjoy socializing during their meal. We also hope that you understand that we are a very small restaurant and are doing our best to meet the current demand for outdoor dining. We are happy to see that you loved your food and the ambience and hope that you will come back in and see us again soon.
Loved it! Amazing service and amazing food! Definitely coming back!
Such a lovely back outdoor area! Very friendly and accommodating staff too. Great discovery!
What a great atmosphere! The service was friendly and timely. The food was delicious. After a crazy day at work I left feeling relaxed, happy, and satiated.
The patio is lovely and the food is very high quality and value!
SO good. Fantastic vibe. Great food.
Great food, great service, pet friendly!
Unbelievably great experience all around! You feel like you’re in a friend’s backyard. Service was stellar and the food amazing. An incredible brunch!
I’ve been coming here almost every weekend for the past 3 months; some weekends on both Saturday and Sunday. So that should say enough 😁
This was our first visit, and we were very pleased with the garden seating area, the menu, the food, and the service. We were especially impressed with the hostess. She had paid attention to the note on the reservation requesting a quiet table and had one ready and waiting for us. She made sure it was as requested and that we were happy with it. She was very thoughtful and pleasant - I wish we'd gotten her name. We will return, in large part due to her.
Thanks, Toni, we will make sure to let the hostess who was working that evening know that you were impressed and pleased with the customer service. Thank you for the feedback and for coming in. Hope to see you again soon!
Great food. Our server was amazing.
The host was very short with our party. It was off-putting, but our server made us feel very welcomed.
Fable was amazing at accommodating our large group outside (with dogs and babies) and the servers were so kind. Thanks for making the lunch a memorable one!
Lovely outdoor patio! Everything was delicious! I recommend
Food was great! Service and atmosphere was fantastic.
LOVE the crispy chicken sandwich. The service was excellent - friendly and accommodating. Will DEFINITELY go back.
I have been there many times with many different friends and we have always been very happy with Fable.
25th birthday dinner for my son.
Great place in the Castro for Brunch with good food.
Never a bad taste or moment here. Thank you for the best (vegan) lasagna i’ve ever had and the amazing service.
first time at Fable. Beautiful back patio and was perfect for my family with two young children. Food was great and had good options for kids. Good wine list and had some great non alcoholic options as well. Would love to come back for Brunch some time.
Great service, ambiance and food!
