We are fortunate to have this gem in Rehoboth. Wonderful food, nice ambiance, friendly staff and Matt at the piano bar afterwards is a delightful conclusion. We highly recommend.

Food and service were excellent. Ambient sound level a bit high.Could be improved in that small space with adding some soft surfaces. Wait staff could keep their voices and laughter quieter as well. The piano bar is lovely but they need to find a way to encourage those enjoying the bar stools to move on, so other guests can enjoy the music as well.

My husband and I had a very romantic date at this special restaurant. The food was all delicious, from the fresh, crusty French bread to the tarts that we took home to enjoy the next day. There are so many wonderful choices on the menu that it is difficult to choose so we must return. Chef's soup of the day was warm and healthy - kale, peas, legumes, squash. The crispy trout was excellent. My husband loved the escargot appetizer. The staff is refined, professional and very helpful. We definitely felt welcomed and comfortable and look forward to repeating this experience.

The food as always was very good. In particular the beef bourgninon. Lovely French wines. Scallops were good but did not like them smothered in mushroom sauce, although the sauce itself was good. Our friends first visit and they really enjoyed it.

For appetizers, we tried cream of cauliflower/brussels sprouts soup and the escargots. The escargots were perfect and delicious. The soup was good, but too filling. The main course was the duck breast and the chicken cordon bleu. The duck was outstanding. The chicken was well-prepared, but the mustard sauce was too overpowering. I scraped most of it off and then really enjoyed the dish - perfectly crispy outside, with a wonderful combination of flavors. Dessert was a delicious pear tart. Kudos to our waiter for making it a wonderful evening!

Is most definitely one of the best restaurants in Delaware. First time there and was so impressed by the entire experience, my husband and I agreed it was as French as a bistro in France! Will be back as soon as we visit our beach cottage again.

I love Fable! It is my new favorite in Rehoboth due to a classic and simple French bistro menu, very well executed, along with great service and really fun vibe. The owner is on scene to make sure that all goes well and patrons are enjoying themselves! I highly recommend the French 75 cocktail!

Second time here and I think it will be the last. Chicken dish had a mustard sauce which over powered the whole dish. My onion soup was just ok. We ordered the one of four dessert choices which was an apple tart. The waiter suggested we order it warm with ice cream. It came cold and did not taste good at all.

Food, service, ambiance were excellent. I have traveled to Paris, France many times over the years and could have gotten the same for much less but I was in Rehoboth Beach, DE so have to accept the over pricing. It was very loud. Not sure if it was just the acoustics or that the other guests were just loud. Also the tables seemed very close, making my date and I feel like we were eating dinner with the couple seated next to us. Wine was slightly overpriced.

As usual, La Fable is a lovely bistro, with delicious food, great service and a beautiful dining room. In addition, there is a pianist there Friday and Saturday evenings, who is quite good and loves suggestions! We took friends there who had not visited it before and they loved it! The boeuf bourguignon was delicicous, and they loved it! The Waygu steak was also very good. We were too stuffed to eat dessert. The wine recommendation went very well with both entrees. I highly recommend this dining experience!
