My wife and I had a wonderful experience at La Fable. The service is stellar; with the right balance of attentiveness without being overbearing. Though it was busy, all contact with the front of house staff was positive from start to finish. For dinner, we started with the cheese board which was excellent and amply sized. For entreés, we had the honey glazed duck breast and the lamb shank special. The duck with goat cheese gnocchi was superb. The lamb was quite good, though a bit on the dry side. The flavor of the sauce and accompanying peas was excellent. We passed on dessert just for the fact we were stuffed for lack of a better word. The restaurant is small and was a tad on the loud side, but that did not take away from the ambiance. Overall a memorable evening.

Our first visit but definitely not our last. We had a wonderful dinner with a lovely bottle of wine. We also made friends with the folks seated next to us, it is very cozy seating but that added to our overall enjoyment.

We brought friends new to the area. La Fable certainly didn't disappoint -- our dinner was wonderful, with several off-menu specials, all of which were perfectly prepared and delicious. The service was extraordinary, including a special dish of radishes and olive oil when the server informed the manager about our celiac/non-dairy friend. We had a wonderful table in the corner and the whole experience was really terrific.

This restaurant was a wonderful experience. The food was superb and the portions are not your typical French portions. I had the trout with a crispy crust combined with marcona almonds and my boyfriend had a delicious chicken dish with gruyere and ham that was delicious as well. Our server was a pleasure and the overall experience was really great. We will be back for certain.

We were 4 and all had eaten here before in 2017 and 2018. Food before now had been very good. This night we each ordered something different and everyone was disappointed ☹️ in some way. Overall, Dishes were salty, way too heavy on dressings and sauces (disappointing flavors as well). Don’t know if they changed chefs but if so, I hope they change back. However, staff was wonderful as they had been before.

First time visit, 6 people, and we all were very pleased. Fine choice of French food, excellent wait staff,
Also good selection of wines and cocktails. Since it is small, noise level a bit high but it did not interfere
With our dinner. Looks like the only real French restaurant in this area. . We will return,!!

This is a Rehoboth hidden gem! We visited La Fable to celebrate our anniversary and can't wait to go back. Derrick our server was excellent, detailed oriented, and gave us fantastic recommendations. The ambiance of the restaurant is perfect, and brought back some good memories of visiting Southern France. Apertifs, main course, and dessert were 5 star quality!

The food is wonderful. We go here about once a year. In the off season. On Sunday. Happy they are doing well but it does fill up. And exactly one fin fish on the menu, nothing for vegetarians. We always end up getting the same thing. Well-crafted cocktails and wide-ranging wine list. The tables are close together but not so noisy that you can't talk. In fact, you usually end up talking to the folks at the next table. And the waitstaff.

Consistently great... it's like being transported to Paris. I had the duck which was wonderful, not a complaint from any of us about anything.... food, service, wine selection. All very, very good.
There are so many great restaurants in Rehoboth that every chef, every server, every bartender has to bring their "A game" every night. If we receive an average meal or average service, we won't return for years because there are so many other choices. Being average is not a problem at La Fable. It's one of the best in town.

Our new favorite restaurant in Rehoboth....We have visited a number of times and the staff and food remain excellent. The only problem (if there is one) is that the bar area is a tad small. Regardless a wonderful experience.

A very pleasant somewhat romantic venue although seating was snug. Noisy once the place filled up. Food was great! My filet was excellently prepared, as I asked: medium rare. My partner had the Lamb Shank which was also prepared well and ample size. Desert portion was larger than expected, but well worth it. Service was attentive, professional, yet unobtrusive. Very limited menu. Menu prices were high. Wine prices were fair. However, this is one of the best restaurant experiences I have had in Rehoboth Beach to date. They say the menu changes seasonally. We will return to how much variety there may be. If you want a nice romantic dinner for two, and you like good French food, this is the place!

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.
