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.

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.

Very quaint and elegant little gem in Rehoboth. The food was outstanding...from the filet and chicken cordon blue, to the rum cake for desert. We will definitely return with friends!

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.

Valentines Day. Food was good but not excellent. I had duck that was flavorful but very tough. Biggest issue is that it’s a tiny place with tables packed so tight that you literally are sitting with the people next to you and staff is bumping into each other all the time.

Exceptional service. We were very well attended to. The food (all courses) was excellent. Best overall dining experience my wife and I have had in quite some time. Cost was more than we usually spend while dining (expect to spend about $70/person), but it was well worth it for the experience.

Kir Royales were just right. Food tested delicious, well-prepared. Service was friendly available and not hovering.
I suggest/request that being a french restaurant raw oysters on the half shell are common in months containing the letter 'R'.

Top notch service, amazing food. Tried their signature radicchio salad which was a perfect balance of bitterness and sweetness...loved it. The steak frites and coq au vin entrees were lovely. Will return and highly recommend to others.

Extremely loud when we first arrived, but that quickly subsided, as a large party left. The food was very authentic to the region. My only problem was the sparse wine list. I was expecting more Bordeaux wines, but such wasn’t the case. That’s what is needed to really make this gem shine.

Food excellent
Service just okay, perhaps she had too many tables.
Noise extreme. We were as far away from a large party apparently celebrating a birthday as the room permits, but still could not hear each other speak. This was due to the large party which was somewhat loud when we arrived and got louder and louder throughout our time there. We felt the restaurant staff should have asked them to tone it down and respect the other diners.

We had never been to La Fable, and we decided to go to celebrate our anniversary, which I indicated on the reservation. We were warmly greeted and promptly seated, and to our delight, we were presented with complimentary champagne after being seated. We each had a salad--a Caesar and a Fable--and they were both delish. My partner had the Boeuf Bourgignon and I had the Coquilles St. Jacques, and both dishes were prepared to perfection. As a mostly vegetarian, I appreciated the braised cauliflower served with the scallops. Others have commented on the noise level, but for us it was fine, and on a Friday evening at 7, the place was probably 2/3 full. We liked the close seating as it prompted us to spark conversation with the table behind us. (How can you not butt in when you hear that you share a favorite restaurant in Honolulu--The Pig and the Lady?) We will definitely return. La Fable, c'est génial!

ADORE this place. The food is comfort French- something you would find at the oldest and best Parisian street bistros. It’s not Paul Bocuse formal cuisine- expect bistro staples executed very well. The place is a lively bistro with great service and a fun loving piano bar. We started with a lovely garlic escargot and smoked fish rillette, went into braised lamb Shank and steak frites, and finished with a decadent chocolate mousse dessert. Having moved from inner D.C. to the beach, Fable is a delightful find!

Very nice restaurant, small, authentic, French ambience. Food was good and service was excellent. Prices reasonable. My only complaint would be that the majority of the tables were MUCH too close to each other. You are practically elbow-to-elbow with people at the tables beside you and it's more like community dining. Tables need to have some privacy and space between them. Fortunately my wife and I had the only table in the place that was by itself and afforded some privacy but I would not be happy dining there if I had been at one of the other tables where I was right next to the other diners.

Second visit, initially came shortly after opening and was disappointed. Thought we would give it a second chance and I am glad that we did. Had a very pleasant evening: the food was very good, service was excellent. Would like to see a few more classic French bistro items on the menu. Glad to have a place that fills the French food void in RB.
