    My husband and I come here A LOT and even when it’s so busy, like this dining experience, everything was still exceptional. I especially appreciated the other services staff who knew us, check on us since our primary server was also very busy. Always outstanding. Best advice for anyone dining here … la Fable and staff are so amazing, but it can get very busy… be patient and always be polite. They always will / want to give 110% service.

    My wife and I dined at La Fable for my birthday. Everything was wonderful. I had the seafood crepe, and my wife had the trout; both were delicious. I can also recommend the Chambord cake, which we shared. La Fable is one of our favorite Lewes/Rehoboth Beach restaurants.

    La Fable has been our go to place for celebrating special occasions, and our 44th anniversary was no exception! We immediately felt welcomed, were offered a complimentary glass of Champagne, and found a nice card on the table signed by the whole staff. Our server, Jodi, provided us with impeccable service, the escargot was as good as it gets- and the duck was to die for! All in all, another memorable evening at La Fable!

    The atmosphere (ambiance) was intimate and warm and more old world European than anything else. The service was friendly, kind actually, the meals came at the correct temperature and the items on the menu and specials (crab soup) were explained where needed and were absolutely delicious. House salad and deviled eggs Mimosa, chicken cordon blu and cocquille st Jacques (scallops in mushroom cream sauce) were out of this world. Cocktails were varied and well balanced, French Chardonnay was gorgeous and appropriately cool and chamboard cake for dessert was a divine ending for a dream of a meal and an experience that must be repeated.

    Step down into this small, intimate spot with a definite Parisian ambiance. Outstanding food and a perfect spot for a special evening with tables in the front corner the coziest (and perhaps quietest) for a romantic dinner. Excellent, professional waitstaff.
