The food and drinks were truly amazing, but the outside seating was less to be desired.

C'est magnifique!!! We arrived for our 6 pm reservation and were immediately seated, greeted and offered sparkling or tap water. The server explained the specials to us, and on her recommendation my husband had the bouillabaisse, which was out of this world. I enjoyed the duck immensely. Wine suggestions were made based on our choices and the wine we went with was a perfect pairing, with both dishes. Dessert and coffee topped off a perfect evening. Thank you La Fable staff!

The menu was well appointed with the French classics. Everything we ordered was delicious and well presented. You won’t be disappointed if you’re looking for Duck L’orange, Cordon Bleu, Steak Frittes, foie, escargot, etc. The stars was friendly and attentive. However, if you’re looking for an interesting surprise or an out of the box French masterpiece, this isn’t the spot. Come here for comforting classics.

Our first time back since the pandemic and the food & service were just as outstanding as we remembered. We took relatives who are foodies and had never been there and they were greatly impressed. The menu focused but varied and all we ordered was delicious, with ample portions. Service was attentive without being bothersome. The atmosphere is relaxed and everyone there - staff & customers - seemed to be having a good time - as it should be!

We love French bistros and have been wanting to try La Fable. We finally went yesterday and it was outstanding. I had the Caesar salad and my wife had their house salad - both were excellent. Among our group we had their pate, bouillabaisse (a special), coquille St. Jacques, chicken cordon blue, and beef Bourguignon. All were excellent, as was the service.

We will definitely be back!

Absolutely wonderful! We were celebrating our 23rd anniversary. We had just sat down - took our drink order - when two glasses of champagne arrived at our table to toast our special occasion. From that moment on everything was truly an experience to remember!!!

A lovely anniversary dinner. Nice ambiance, helpful staff, and delicious food. We had the escargot appetizer, the beef bourguignon and steak frites main courses, the creme brulee and chocolate mousse desserts, and the french press decaf. Highly recommended for a nice romantic meal.

One of our favorite restaurants; first time back in over a year. Happily, the expert staff and skillful cooking that made La Fable special are largely intact. Our server, Victoria, was exceptional and we look forward to resuming regular visits to this restaurant.

We were very disappointed in our first visit to this restaurant. Immediately upon entering, we were let down by the ambience. I was told it was quaint with romantic atmosphere. It was both of those, but at very low levels. We ordered the Duck L’Orange and it came undercooked to the point where it was not edible. The chef cooked it longer, and while now edible, it was not tasty. The broccolini had a burned flavor, but there was a sauce under everything that was quite good. Nothing on the plate was actually more than luke warm. The service was the biggest issue. Our server didn’t really seem to know much about the menu items, was unapologetic about the undercooking of the duck, and in fact told us we would have really enjoyed an item that was not on the menu but that they offer as an alternative to the duck l’orange. Problem was she never told us about it. She knew we were not pleased with our dinners but never offered us something else....not a different entree, not a glass of wine, not dessert, nothing. After paying the check, she asked why we didn’t ask for something else. She made a mistake on the check in our favor and didn’t graciously thank us for our honesty. This was not a good experience and I would not recommend La Fable, or at least the Duck L’Orange. Perhaps you might have better luck with a server.

The food offerings were great. My partner had the salmon and I had the chicken crdon Blu. My chicken was dry, overcooked and burnt, but was well hidden in the Dijon sauce. Dessert was delicious.

Been to Le Fable several times. Cocktails are great, service was good, the food this last time was too salty. But I'm willing to try again since I had good experiences before. Please bring back the vanilla cake on the dessert menu. :)

Our experience there was beyond expectations. It started off with complimentary champagne as they knew it was our anniversary Based on reservation questions. From escargot to fresh Caesar salad, his beef Bergundy and my trout almandine were heavenly. it was all absolutely fabulous. Staff very attentive. We will return!

Amazing as always. Service is always spot on and the food is fantastic. We were celebrating our birthdays and had a wonderful evening. The Chef even prepared a special dessert for one person who is diabetic. Let's not forget Matthew on the piano in the later evenings!

I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting an enjoyable evening with quality food and service. It never misses the mark!

What an outstanding restaurant! Excellent service and food, and a very caring management to include a complimentary glass of champagne for my birthday guest. I only wish I could rate this five star restaurant higher. I strongly recommend you add Fable to your dinner schedule when visiting the Delaware shore.
