Food was excellent! It is a small restaurant. The bench seats need cushions, they were hard. We will go back.

We’ve eaten here a few times and think this is one of the best restaurants RB has to offer. I always have the pate appetizer and love it! For dinner we had the chicken cordon Bleu and the special duck a l’orange Both delicious. Service is always perfect! A little pricey but worth it. We’ll be back.

This was the second time I came to La Fable, both for a special occasion. The food was delicious, the waitress and entire staff were all nice and friendly, and the atmosphere was very pleasant. I would highly recommend and plan to go back again soon!

Was very excited for a delicious French meal so close to home. The liver mousse was absolutely perfect and the crème brûlée was skillfully executed. The main course left us a bit disappointed - portions were excessive, overly heavy with sauces and lacked subtlety. That being said, we are likely to come back, sit at the bar, enjoy a good bottle of Entre-Deux-Mers and stick to the small plates.

We absolutely adore La Fable! It is a charming restaurants with Impeccable service and charming ambience. It truly is a hidden gem in downtown Rehoboth where you will feel transported to a Paris bistro when you walk down the steps to La Fable. If you are lucky you will be there on a night when the piano bar is in full swing with guest stars and the bartender jumping in to sing. As for the food, expect delicious and consistent French classics executed correctly. Reservations a must, even in the off season. 5 stars!

Too dear. Dessert choices not so great. Interesting cocktails, very good food but $$. Rehoboth has several other high end restaurants that are just as good & a bit more reasonable in price. Terrific wait staff.

Dinner - Party of 2 - 3.17.18 Authentic, "classic" french cuisine comes to Rehoboth Beach, DE. We each had a cocktail, appetizer, entree and dessert, total cost, all in including tip $170. The menu is not extensive but has many of the usual suspects. For appetizers, French Onion Soup, Escargot, Fois Gras , Cheese plate. For Entrees, Steak Au Poirve, Cordon Bleu, Coquilles St. Jacques, Beef Bourguignon. My dinner companion started with the French Onion Soup which was rich but not salty. I opted for the Fois Gras which was buttery smooth, flavorful without being overbearing, served with house prepared mustard seed and a house prepared jam. My entree was Coquilles St. Jacque, nice portion of scallops, perfectly seasoned and prepared and served with garlic roasted cauliflower. My companion had the Steak Au Poirve, again prepared to perfection. We topped off the meal with Dessert, chocolate mousse for my friend, and coffee (individual french press) and a fruit tower with poached pears and whipped cream for me. Both desserts were wonderfully decadent. This restaurant is a keeper! Not inexpensive, but worth the price in both quality and quantity of the food.

It was a great experience and the best meal in Rehoboth! Tried the lobster pasta special - it was outstanding and my husband’s steak au poivre was to die for. Service would have been a 5 rating if we didn’t have to wait for our table. We will be back!

This is the second time we’ve had dinner at La Fable and it was just as good as the first time. Our group ordered La Fable salad, and I split the seafood crepe with my husband. All yummy. We also ordered trout almondine, beef bourguignon and the steak, all beautiful, generous and so good. The waiters are beyond friendly and helpful, the food and wine is delicious, and it’s a fabulous value for the high quality of French food they serve. I only wish there was another one in Pennsylvania near Valley Forge! The owner makes herself known and is very sweet. She cares about her customers and I think this restaurant will be around for years to come.

Elegant! A virtual taste of Paris from the decor, to the food, to the service, to the music, to the ambience. We had the cassoulet and lamb dishes, and both were superb--appetizing to the palate and to the eyes. Hostess and wait staff were friendly and engaging. An excellent choice for a special occasion or an enchanted evening.

We've dined at La Fable many times, always happily. Somehow we were a little disappointed this time. The escargots were so loaded with garlic that, hours later, our taste buds continued to be overwhelmed. The steak frites - fine, but not as spectacular as our waitress indicated. The mussels, similarly - fine. At this price point we really do hold the restaurant (our favorite in Rehoboth Beach) to the highest of standards. We'll be back, but with continued high expectations.

We had a wonderful meal. We went on a Sunday night so the restaurant was quiet. I had the escargot and Coquille which were both perfect. My husband had the steak and a Cesar salad, he thought they were perfect. Servings were generous and staff was very attentive. We will definitely return.

Perhaps the best cooking and menu planning in the region. Skilled and dedicated service under the leadership of an owner who truly seems to care about her customers and her staff. We luckily discovered La Fable on a weeknight in the offseason when it is usually closed; the room wasn't busy so ratings of ambience and noise level are pretty meaningless. But on a cold, quiet night the explanation and preparation of everything we ordered was great, and there was hardly a dish on the menu we didn't want to try. Not sure how or why this special restaurant somehow stays under the radar screen in the area, but it is absolutely worth many visits.

The food and service at La Fable were excellent. I savored every bite of the seared trout with tasty sauce and haricots verts, and my husband enjoyed his chicken cordon bleu despite a greater amount of Dijon than he would have preferred. We ended our meal with silky creme brulee and coffee made in a French press. Although we didn't like some of the background music which sounded more like chatter, our waiter decreased the volume for us. We dined early and the restaurant was quiet otherwise. We would return to celebrate a special occasion.

Read reviews that the servers were attentive. I agree with those reviews. Both the hostess & server gave off friendly vibes - we felt welcomed.

Nice flowers - have not seen gypsophylla (Baby’s breath) flowers in ages! I’m a horticulturist-former agriculture inspector - those flowers brought back memories - now that I’m retired!

La Fable is deserving of it's 5 star rating. The food was first class and the wait staff was well trained. My husband had the steak au poivre served medium rare just as ordered and I had the poulet cordon bleu. Both dishes were perfectly cooked and full of flavor. I can't forget to mention the chocolate mousse for dessert. It was smooth and dense and a chocoholic's dream!
