Valentine’s day. We had a 7:45 dinner reservation. There was no room at the bar and really no room to wait for your table to be available. We were not seated until 8:30. I find that unacceptable.

Wonderful addition to Rehoboth Beach restaurant scene. Limited but excellent menu of French oriented dishes. Extraordinary service. Intimate decor and atmosphere. Certainly should be high on any list for special occasions.

Exceptional service. We were very well attended to. The food (all courses) was excellent. Best overall dining experience my wife and I have had in quite some time. Cost was more than we usually spend while dining (expect to spend about $70/person), but it was well worth it for the experience.

Top notch service, amazing food. Tried their signature radicchio salad which was a perfect balance of bitterness and sweetness...loved it. The steak frites and coq au vin entrees were lovely. Will return and highly recommend to others.

Extremely loud when we first arrived, but that quickly subsided, as a large party left. The food was very authentic to the region. My only problem was the sparse wine list. I was expecting more Bordeaux wines, but such wasn’t the case. That’s what is needed to really make this gem shine.

Food excellent
Service just okay, perhaps she had too many tables.
Noise extreme. We were as far away from a large party apparently celebrating a birthday as the room permits, but still could not hear each other speak. This was due to the large party which was somewhat loud when we arrived and got louder and louder throughout our time there. We felt the restaurant staff should have asked them to tone it down and respect the other diners.

We had never been to La Fable, and we decided to go to celebrate our anniversary, which I indicated on the reservation. We were warmly greeted and promptly seated, and to our delight, we were presented with complimentary champagne after being seated. We each had a salad--a Caesar and a Fable--and they were both delish. My partner had the Boeuf Bourgignon and I had the Coquilles St. Jacques, and both dishes were prepared to perfection. As a mostly vegetarian, I appreciated the braised cauliflower served with the scallops. Others have commented on the noise level, but for us it was fine, and on a Friday evening at 7, the place was probably 2/3 full. We liked the close seating as it prompted us to spark conversation with the table behind us. (How can you not butt in when you hear that you share a favorite restaurant in Honolulu--The Pig and the Lady?) We will definitely return. La Fable, c'est génial!

ADORE this place. The food is comfort French- something you would find at the oldest and best Parisian street bistros. It’s not Paul Bocuse formal cuisine- expect bistro staples executed very well. The place is a lively bistro with great service and a fun loving piano bar. We started with a lovely garlic escargot and smoked fish rillette, went into braised lamb Shank and steak frites, and finished with a decadent chocolate mousse dessert. Having moved from inner D.C. to the beach, Fable is a delightful find!

Very nice restaurant, small, authentic, French ambience. Food was good and service was excellent. Prices reasonable. My only complaint would be that the majority of the tables were MUCH too close to each other. You are practically elbow-to-elbow with people at the tables beside you and it's more like community dining. Tables need to have some privacy and space between them. Fortunately my wife and I had the only table in the place that was by itself and afforded some privacy but I would not be happy dining there if I had been at one of the other tables where I was right next to the other diners.

Second visit, initially came shortly after opening and was disappointed. Thought we would give it a second chance and I am glad that we did. Had a very pleasant evening: the food was very good, service was excellent. Would like to see a few more classic French bistro items on the menu. Glad to have a place that fills the French food void in RB.

Everything about La Fable was wonderful! My wife and I went for our Anniversary. I have not stopped praising La Fable since exiting the building. The service was excellent, food amazing, the lighting and decor was cozy. Just the perfect size, not too many tables. All and all one of the best restaurants we have visited in the area.

Step inside La Fable, and it’s the closest you’ll get to France in Rehoboth Beach! The bar was very lively later at night and our waiter, Tye, was spectacular. The bread was extremely fresh and served by piece so it isn’t sitting on the table. For hors D’oeuvres, I got escargot with the La Fable Salad. The sauce on the escargot was amazing and it’s a great dipping sauce for the bread. The salad was a nice balance of creaminess, crunchiness, and a hint of bitterness. My grandson loved his cream of crab soup because it had a good portion of fresh crabmeat. For dinner, my grandson got the duck with goat cheese gnocchi, which was the best duck he ever had. It even had subtle hints of lavender in the sauce. I had the scallops, which were cooked tenderly and tasted like you were eating velvet. Dessert was marvelous. The cheese board was a great variety, especially the creaminess of the triple cream brie and the aged taste of the bleu cheese. The creme brûlée has a very thin, but crunchy layer of flambed sugar, which was excellent. The staff is friendly and professional, and the manager did a great job checking on each table. The prices may be steep, but it’s definitely worth it!

We go to Rehoboth Beach several times a year and enjoy the opportunity to eat here. On this occasion we had Darrell as our waiter. He was quite the character. Very charming and personable. He was very knowledgeable of the menu options and very attentive to our needs. The menu seems to change on each of our visits and we never are disappointed. We are looking forward to our next visit

We ate here for the second time on Christmas eve and La Fable outdid itself! The menu offered was prix fix but all choices were appealing. My husband ordered escargot and duck and I had the Caesar salad and duck. All dishes were expertly prepared and there were enough choices that it was difficult to decide on what to order. Dessert was an individual yule log for the table. The bread served is worthy of a French restaurant and I had a glass of their French table wine with dinner which was outstanding. The staff was very accommodating and had a great attitude. I have found this to be rare when restaurant staff has to work on a holiday. Overall, I can't say enough about this restaurant. We will definitely be back!
