We went to La Fable to celebrate a birthday, and the experience was amazing from start to finish. They went out of their way to make everything very special. The food was phenomenal and the service was top notch. We look forward to returning in the near future!

Lovely, quiet dinner. Seafood stew was outstanding as was the fromage board. Coquilles St Jacques also well prepared. Polite, attentive servers.

Everyone was so friendly, it was a special occasion and they treated us to champagne. Food was excellent, ambience was great. It felt like we weren’t at the beach anymore. Definitely will go back.

A disappointing evening. Yes, it is still the charming space that feels like a bistro in Paris ( or maybe NYC) but prices are higher . $38 for beef bourguignon is a lot;
when the dish isn't so special. The seafood stew was plentiful but lacking in flavor. Onion soup starter was sublime. Service friendly, professional and attentiive. But sadly - we won't be going back anytime soon.
In short, food wasn't just so-so and the prices warrant food that is great.
Wine list is good and but pricey.

A lovely little French bistro, we have dined there several times over the past 3 years and it never disappoints. As always, the food was excellent, service impeccable, and the decor of a small French restaurant was very appealing. The noise level can be quite high if there are large, boisterous parties dining at the same time as you, but don't let that stop you from going and enjoying this wonderful restaurant.

This was our first visit to La Fable, but certainly not our last. Everything was perfect, and we couldn't have been more happy with our experience. The service and food were nothing short of perfection - the fish soup special and Boeuf bourguignon were amazing!
Don't walk, run to try La Fable!

Impeccable service, thoughtful and well-crafted dishes, and a slice of Paris ambiance made for a delicious and delightful evening at LaFable. From cocktails through desert, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. A definite go-to for any special occasion or just a great evening out.

We were THAT TABLE--the table where someone got sick (not because of the food) and had to leave. I only got two bites of my food and one sip of my wine before I had to walk my friend to my car. But the food was amazing this morning for breakfast.

Excellent food--even warmed up. The only problem was noise level--it was impossible to hear my friends talking (we were in between two very loud tables). Solution--early dining, perhaps?

A small restaurant so make reservations. Pretty interior. We shared everything,. Escarot, which were ok. Steak tartare was very good. Coquilles st. Jacques was very good great sauce. Good french bread. All the entrees were $38. Wine was very expensive so we had a glass.

We had a lovely date night at La Fable. The service was great. Jodi was very pleasant, and helpful in describing various dishes and the specials. Delicious and refreshing beverages; we highly recommend Le Bleu Goose & Blackberry Bourbon Smash. Our dinner entrees were fabulous!! We had the Coquilles St. Jacques & the Poulet Cordon Bleu. Whatever you order, be sure to get a side of the incredible lemon fried cauliflower. Everything was excellent. Can't wait to go back.

First time visiting the restaurant. Very nice and knowledgeable staff. The only major issue was the noise level was so high that several people around us stated they could not hear each other, therefore it was hard to have an enjoyable meal. I did notice that the renovation materials did not have any acoustical absorbing value. Something you may consider adding for the enjoyment of your clients.

Overpriced. Mediocre food. Arrived at the table cold. Waitstaff uninspired. Will never eat here again with so many options in the area! Was hoping to top off a wonderful time in Rehoboth Beach with an amazing meal, didn’t happen. The owner has multiple establishments in the area, maybe she should spend more time at La Fable!!
