The food was absolutely delicious, the chefs know what they are doing. The patio and ambiance was beautiful and elegant. The hostess was not very friendly, but it was a busy Sunday brunch. Our waiter also was not e Carly with it, kept forgetting things, orders came out wrong. But the Food was worth it!! Your tastebuds won’t be disappointed!
Perfect mother’s day brunch. Amazing food & great service. Plus the restaurant is so cute!!!
Wonderful dinner for mothers day. Great food and service and lovely ambiance.
The food was great, service attentive, and the back area is gorgeous
Literally the sweetest service and best food i’ve had in an incredibly long time.
Great great great. The host was amazing. Communicative and friendly. Previous guests at our table were late to depart and the host kept us informed and apologized. The service was subtle and friendly. Food was awesome! Lots of flavor. The patio out back is insane! Warm and inviting. Like dining in a garden!
Such a nice back patio with shade and beautiful greenery all around. Wonderful service and large, delicious typical brunch plates + cocktails.
The back porch is absolutely beautiful, came here for brunch and the experience did not disappoint. Staff was attentive and responsive. The food was delicious, we had the Denver Omelet, Egg Sandwich, and Pancakes, all were a large amount of food and very satisfying. We plan to come back!
Such a cool spot! Food was delicious and the service was great. Definitely recommend end!
Booked a last minute bridal brunch and the staff was super accommodating. They gave us a great spot in their parklet and let us take group photos in their beautiful patio. The drinks kept us warm and the food came out super quick. The staff from the hosts to our server Edgar provided a memorable experience. It was our first time out since COVID and we cannot wait to return. Thank you Fable
The outdoor patio dining was really an amazing treat!
Lovely spot. Love the garden.
What a great find. Lovely outdoor setting in a enclosed garden. Service was excellent as was the food and wine selection.
Such a lovely spot to dine outdoors. Food great and wait staff enjoyable.
Loved the patio. Food was very fresh! I would go back
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at charming Fable. The patio was lovely, the service was friendly and efficient and the food was delicious. What a treat to enjoy such a pleasant lunch out after so long without going out to dine. We can’t wait to go back to try dinner and the amazing wine selection.
Really mediocre food and service
Larry, we are so sorry to hear that you felt as if your service and food were mediocre. We are always aiming for very high quality with both and so we apologize that was not what you experienced. Please message us with any additional feedback or details on how we could have done better. Thank you for your visit in. We would like to invite you to come back to Fable so that we can apologize in person and make it up to you next time.
This experience was completely different than the last couple of times I dined there. I was very disappointed with the food quality compared to my last visits. The pork came out over cooked and was not close to how when it arrived at the table.
Hi Lauren, thanks for coming back to Fable. We adore our regular customers and apologize that we missed the mark with the food on your last visit. We didn't get your pork chop right as it should have been hot and not overcooked. We ask that guests let us know when something isn't right with their food so that we have the opportunity to remake the dish or offer something else. Please message us your contact information so we can reach out directly and ensure that Fable remains your go-to place.
Cheeseburger, fries, little gems green goddess salad it is heaven here!!!
It was challenging for elderly disabled persons to navigate this space. There is no disabled parking on Castro Street. We were moved from our initial table as the server made a “mistake” which proved to be difficult for members of our party with mobility issues. The table we were reseated at could not adequately accommodate three people. The food was dry and appeared refrigerated for a number of hours. The chicken was dry and we couldn’t chew our Cobb chicken salads. We won’t be returning to Fable nor recommending it to others.
Julio, we sincerely apologize our outdoor space was difficult for members of your party to navigate. Our front and indoor seating are more accessible spaces and we absolutely would have accommodated seating in either of those areas upon request. We're sorry you weren't happy with your lunch. We can assure you that our food is fresh and made to order. We will look into what happened with your meal. Please send us your contact information so we can reach out to you directly to make this right.
It was one of the best restaurant experiences, truthfully. My birthday guests were very happy too and gave so many compliments to the place.
Nice first visit. Tiny wine pour but good basic food.
Best fried chicken sandwich ever. Great patio.
came here for my birthday and Fable is super nice, friendly and the ambiance was truly amazing (:
This was a nice romantic escape - my husband and were in town for about 48 hours. With so many options to choose from in SF, I'm quite thankful that we happened upon Fable. Our server was amazing, the food delicious, the ambiance just perfect. The fava bean salad with the shrimp special on top was absolutely delicious. I had the vegan lasagna - it was certainly a risk - but I would absolutely recommend it to anyone, even meat eaters!
Great meal. We got all the apps and I enjoyed the ahi. Great service
We went here for our 6th anniversary, and it was exactly what we needed during COVID; outdoor dining with nice atmosphere, and great food. The ambiance was great, the service was safe, comfortable and attentive, and we couldn't have really asked for more. At 48 deg F, we maybe could have worn long underwear and brought a warmer outer layer, but we made due with the heaters and what we were wearing.
We have already recommended Fable to a few people. Thank you!
Very nice patio setting with heat lamp. and trees/plants. Food was okay. This appetizer, pumpkin blossom tempura with ricotta & pamesan was excellent. Everything else, mediocre. We had beef/pork meatballs. Chicken with green beans and mashed potatoes and vegan lasagna. Service was good...well paced and helpful.
Great service and amazing food!
This was our first time (definitely not our last!). Great meal (Brunch), We had our
standard poodle with us --- she recommends the cheeseburger. Food was great, service efficient & friendly. This is a real gem.
The decor and food here is excellent. It’s such a beautiful place. I had the baguette French toast and a side of bacon, both delicious. It was soft and warm and came with strawberries. Also had the blood Orange mimosa which was really good as well. The food arrived quickly too. Only issue was the waitress. We arrived at 1:56 for a 2pm reservation. The hostess was SO WONDERFUL and told us the kitchen closed in 30 minutes, but drinks could still be ordered after that. Great. Then comes Katrina. She rushes us to put our order in. Then she tells me I have to put my mask on even though I was sitting at the table. She didn’t tell the other person I was with to put their mask on, nor did she say that to any other table. I felt singled out. Then as we’re eating she comes and puts the check on the table. We sat at 2 and she gave us the check at 2:55 even though there is a 90 minute limit. She never asked us if we wanted anything else. We had wanted to order another carafe, but she didn’t give us the opportunity. As we were finishing our first carafe she kept taking things off our table, but again not doing this to anyone else. We felt so rushed and pushed out. I’d like to give this place more stars, but she took away from our experience.
A delightful garden patio in the middle of the Castro. The food was delicious and the servers friendly and helpful.
Great atmosphere, food, and service. We really liked the chocolate chip banana bread. Perfect place to get brunch on the weekend.
They know how tondo outdoor dining. Gorgeous setting and the service was so attentive.
Fable never disappoints. Good food, service, and ambience. Took a friend who had never been there and she loved it.
We went to celebrate our moms birthday and we had a great time
A much nicer experience than the parking-space eateries nearby, and priced accordingly. Charming garden setting for an early dinner for three, our first restaurant outing after completing the vaccination cycle. Everything has been upgraded from how that space was operated ten or more years ago: garden, fountain, wind break, furniture, menu and graciousness. My lasagna was once-in-a-lifetime good and, rather than split just one dessert, we ordered the top three choices with extra spoons.
Birthday dinner for my daughter. Told a waiter, didn’t even say “Happy Birthday” only said we don’t have birthday cake. She could have been a lot friendlier. Food was good though. Just not a personable guy on one of our first outings back to a restaurant.
Had a great time. Great seats and excellent service and food.
Amazing service, Edgar offered a great customer service and professionalism during our lunch experience. Thanks Edgar people like you made the industry better every day!!
