I can’t recommend this restaurant enough! An evening spent there is like an evening spent on the Côte d’Azur. We dined at an outdoor table & I literally felt the Mediterranean, not the Atlantic, was down the street. Maître d’ Nathalie Langer will greet you, make sure you’re comfortably seated at your table & introduced to your waiter. And her son, Chef Benjamin Langer, prepares each meal with care in the true French tradition. The wait staff is very courteous & efficient. An absolutely wonderful experience for all!

Enjoyed an outdoor table with appropriately masked server. Escargot and bouillabaisse were perfectly prepared and served. An excellent French meal. Wine prices are very reasonable as well.

The cocktails were very nice - and somewhat original - especially the Zelda. The steak tartare was served with a quail egg. The escargots were really large and prepared perfectly. The bouillabaisse was simply amazing - so much great seafood. The bowl was heaping with seafood. The pork chop was also memorable. The chef was French, and he was true to the tradition. We're definitely going back - next time at Rehoboth Beach.

This is a restaurant with a very good staff eager to please and friendly; the food was good, not astronomic, a little on the expensive side. The indoor space is somewhat cramped and loud and could use some decorating help. All of this was counterbalanced by an extremely attentive, warm, and helpful server and a hostess who did as much as she could to satisfy us. The outdoor seating actually seemed nicer than the indoor space; wish we had chosen that instead. Overall a favorable but not overwhelming experience

Dinner was spectacular as were previous visits. The four of us had the pork, duck, beef bourginon as well as the bouillabaisse special. Entrees and Appetizers were delicious and hot and service was top notch. Highly recommended for a Rehoboth dining experience.

My fiancé and I had dinner there last night, everything was phenomenal! The food with top notch, fresh, just perfect! Our waitress (who’s name I wish I could remember) was by far the best waitress we have ever had. She was so kind, friendly, and attentive. Our drink glasses were never empty and she checked on us regularly without being overbearing. Simply a perfect experience even in the midst of Covid. Thank you! We will be back!

Excellent evening out. The food and ambience was excellent, but what really stood out was the servers who were all wonderful. The best service we had in a long time. They were all really attentive but not overly so.

We had the Porc and the Coquille Saint Jacques and we both had the escargot and everything was fantastic. I would highly recommend for a special evening out.

We ate outside as is our preference during Covid-19 Delta. The waitstaff couldn't have been more solicitous and friendly. The food, as always, was excellent. I had the Fable salad and the scallops. My husband had the eggs with lardons and the salmon.

La Fable was a great experience. It is right up there at the top of the heap of Rehoboth’s fine dining contenders. Our server Holly was great as was the meal. We were a group of 5 and everyone of us left completely satisfied. Fantastic and we will be back!

We live in Rehoboth and have been to La Fable several times, most recently in early June (we typically go off-season), We've always had a great experience. This was the first time anyone in our party (of 6) expressed disappointment with the food. Specifically one person felt the vichyssoise was too salty and the chicken cordon bleu was rubbery, looked like something that was prepackaged, and the presentation definitely not "authentic" (this person lived in Europe for many years) That said, however, the rest of our party were happy with their entrees. My bouillabaisse was quite good.

The inside seating looked to be at capacity and the noise level reflected that - we needed to speak with raised voices and those in our party with hearing issues had some difficulty communicating. Overall, though, I'd say the sound volume was not much different from many other restaurants these days, unfortunately.

The service was prompt, knowledgeable, attentive but not hovering. All staff were masked, which made us feel comfortable. I'm sure we'll go again...though perhaps not for the chicken cordon bleu!

La Fable is excellent. It is a bit noisy in the main dining area, but it does have a European cafe vibe. Highly recommended.
