Absolutely superb: all around amazing dining experience:

Restaurant associates were incredibly friendly, professional and helpful:

Food was beyond compare: a lobster bisque, which was without doubt, the best I have tasted: sublime Cassoulet with perfectly crisped pork belly and crispy confit duck leg: beans and sausages cooked to perfection.

Yummy well priced Sauvignon.

Definitely one of the best meals; EVER.

Tip: book early: it gets very popular

We were celebrating our anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, authenticity of the food and service...all of which were superb!!! At the end of our meal, we were provided a complimentary glass of champagne because it was our anniversary. This was so thoughtful and unexpected.

I started with their escargot which was extremely satisfying especially considering the terrible experience I had at 1776 Steakhouse. I had the duck entree which was cooked perfectly. My wife had the beef, also delicious. Service was attentive. Overall a great time.

Such a good meal! La Fable delivered another fantastic meal. We were 6 ladies who ordered several different appetizers and entrees, and everyone felt it was the best meal she’d eaten in a long time.

The restaurant is pricey but if you want a beautifully and deliciously prepared meal with very nice wait staff, then this the place.

Bon appetit!

Celebrated my birthday at Fable. I am vaccinated, but not quite ready to eat inside anywhere yet. The staff, especially the fabulous Jason, bent over backwards to create a special experience outside on their sidewalk cafe for me and it was so appreciated! Thank you Fable! As always, the food was simply perfect. I had the garlicky and delicious escargot, which is very traditional and hard to find. We also enjoyed the deviled eggs, cassoulet special, and beef bourguonion. The chocolate mousse is the best I have ever had! Fable remains at the top of my faves in Rehoboth!

This is the fifth or sixth visit over as many years. I think it's a very good French menu and this season appears to be off to a good start. I hosted friends who live on the Eastern Shore and they thought it was excellent as well. I hope to get back again this summer.

The cocktails were fantastic (we had the Zelda and Manhattan). We had the duck and short ribs for our main and they were both delicious. Glad we saved room for dessert because the almond financier with berries was light and tasted amazing. Overall, a little pricey, but worth it.

This was our first visit and we enjoyed ourselves a great deal. The trout almandine was delicious as was my wife’s salmon. I also enjoyed the escargot a great deal. The service was excellent, attentive without being overbearing. We will visit again.

Nice evening. Definitely a French influenced menu, not all authentic French, but for the area - really good!! Nice wine list and a little something on the menu for all. Scallop entree a favorite!

Our first dine-in after receiving our vaccinations was a date-night birthday celebration with my husband at La Fable. Our server, Steve, and the rest of the staff were totally attentive and welcoming, masked, and maintaining social distancing. Started off with superbly crafted drinks. My husband had the duck breast, and I had Cassoulet. Both were prepared excellently, were served elegantly, and were quite tasty and filling. But there was room for a chocolate mousse with birthday candle to finish the evening. An exquisite way to celebrate a birthday and begin our journey out of the pandemic.
