Fable - SF
It was Mother's Day brunch and busy so I don't blame the staff for being slightly slower. It was not unbearable and the food and ambiance on the back patio were both fantastic.
Had our second visit to Fable and sat outside in their garden. It was beautiful and very calming. Highly recommend it, but know where the sun is setting. Food was great, service wonderful, and wine selection tasted.
Always great food. A great neighborhood brunch location that let’s you sit outside. All of us had a great meal and time.
Great food and ambiance - service is warm and attentive!
First time to Fable and it was wonderful. We ate inside not realizing they have a fantastic patio garden in the back. Very beautiful at night. Dinner was super tasty and great welcoming staff. Gotta try the Mac N Cheese.
Excellent food and a friendly, attentive staff. This was the first time I've tried Fable. I'll be back.
Great breakfast spot. Outdoor heated patio and great service.
Fable has hit its stride and the food has been consistently good every time we have eaten there. Consistency is a very important factor in determining where and how often we dine out.
Super yummy and great atmosphere! The hostess was so so nice and our server was also excellent. We shared a pancake entree for the table and all of our individual meals were excellent. Highly recommend the eggs Benedict and the pancake!
We had a great experience as usual at Fable, we loved the food and the service is excellent! Ramsey is very professional and patient.
Thank you Fable for the great dinner.
Lovely patio. Limited menu. Yummy food and good wine list. Close to crazy Castro
Had a ladies brunch here on a Saturday. Was definitely underwhelmed by the food. Had the quinoa bowl and not only were the poached eggs a bit overdone (was really hoping for a beautiful yolk) but it was completely bland lacking seasoning whatsoever. Could have been a bad order but would hope everything is good on a small menu! I did supplement with a blueberry muffin which was delicious. Great ambiance. Service was fine. Also alcoholic drinks menu looked really yummy but didn't partake so can't provide first hand information. I probably won't return but it was nice to try somewhere new.
The patio is beautiful. We had the chicken and vegan lasagna both were incredible- especially the vegan lasagna.
The food was honestly whatever. I ordered the double-cheeseburger and the bread was soggy from the meat juice. The staff was very friendly but I would not comeback.
Very nice food and location , but no fresh juice and no expresso in such beautiful place . Pity
We have been to Fable many times. Food is good, seating on outside patio very nice ( but can be loud, especially seated to a boisterous group of 8 which was our experience last Saturday night) menu, doesn’t change much, but is consistent. It might be a good idea for the chef to add more Vegetarian entrees in addition to the Vegan mushroom lasagne which I order every time we dine at Fable, (it’s getting a bit predictable) and appears I’m a bit limited to.
A new restaurant in the Castro neighborhood which sorely needs more restaurants. It occupies the space of an old restaurant and has included most of its fine points with a good menu. We went for brunch on a sunny spring day and ate outside. It was wonderful. I will return.
The service was excellent, most likely due to the fact that we were the only people there. The atmosphere is so cute and my favorite part about the spot but the food was lacking. It just wasn’t very tasty to be frank. The menu also didn’t offer enough options. I hope this place can make some changes because it was very cute and the staff seem totally engaged, would hate to see it go due to something as simple as that.
The food was good however has a vegan I ordered vegetarian appetizer and vegetables sides. I mentioned to the waiter that I am a vegan. I did not notice nor did the waiter inform me that the vegetables had bacon on one and cheese on the other. I would have expected the waiter to mention that I might want to amend my order. Very disappointing.
Food was good but our server was very rude. The wrong dish came out and I told the food runner that it was wrong, he apologized and switched the order. Our server then came to our table to tell me that I was the one who made the mistake when ordering and didn't apologize for HER mistake.
I also ordered bacon on the side and never got it, but it was left on the bill. We let the food runner know and he immediately took it off. We ended up tipping the food runner in cash because he was more helpful and friendly than our horrible waitress.
Such a nice place for brunch
Waitress was a little slow on bringing half and half with my coffee. Had to wait 5 mins for it
The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Lovely place and beautiful patio. The food was excellent and I would definitely go back!
The atmosphere was wonderful.We sat in the garden on a warm night. The waiter had a bit of an attitude an hovered but then cleared food without asking if we were finished eating it. He wasn’t friendly. The food came quickly however. Two of us had the fish and were very disappointed as it had little taste. The burgers were very good , however.
One of the best places for outdoor dining. Good sized back patio, good food, good service. Always a good time.
We have had crab cakes at Fable twice and they are wonderful. This past visit, I noticed the crab cakes have little tiny squares of hand cut carrots. These carrots add a nice touch to the light crunchy crab cakes. If you like beets (I do) the chicken is not to be missed. Perfectly cooked chicken with a tasty bit of goat cheese butter on a bed of mixed beets with farro. This dish is fabulous. You could make dinner of the beets and farro alone but then you would miss the chicken.
Amazing gem in the Castro with delicious food and great ambiance on the back patio!
Lovely heated outdoor garden dining
Great patio seating with heating lamps. Service was quick, efficient and pleasant. Small dinner menu. Ink squid pasta special was good with the exception that it was on the salty side. Duck dish was tender and flavorful. Green beans were cooked perfectly.
Love the patio in back!! Great wine selection, and it is very close to Castro Theater.
Vegan lasagna was the best I’ve had. It was a weeknight so the ambience outside was perfect.
Delicious crab cake Benedict’s and pomegranate mimosa’s are a must have. Service was too slow but thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. What a nice find!
As Usual Fable never disappoints. Always great food the service is great; never over bearing. The food is always fresh and Beautifully presented. One of the few restaurants in the area where the noise level is just fine for casual conversations.
Cant't go wrong with Fable!
We were there at 5:00pm and the garden was wonderful and quiet. The service was great and we really enjoyed the carrot soup, crab cakes and roasted chicken with beets. We went before a show downtown and it was a nice time to be at Fable. It's a couple of blocks to the station, so we just took Metro after dinner to get downtown.
Good food, nice ambiance.
Food was nice , Mac and cheese was awesome !
Excellent place for brunch. Great food and drinks.
Great place for weekend brunch
We started our evening here (bachelorette party) and it was the perfect place to begin!
Delicious food, great wine selections, and a beautiful restaurant with friendly and attentive servers!
I was so impressed and cannot wait to return!
