Dinner - Party of 2 - 3.17.18 Authentic, "classic" french cuisine comes to Rehoboth Beach, DE. We each had a cocktail, appetizer, entree and dessert, total cost, all in including tip $170. The menu is not extensive but has many of the usual suspects. For appetizers, French Onion Soup, Escargot, Fois Gras , Cheese plate. For Entrees, Steak Au Poirve, Cordon Bleu, Coquilles St. Jacques, Beef Bourguignon. My dinner companion started with the French Onion Soup which was rich but not salty. I opted for the Fois Gras which was buttery smooth, flavorful without being overbearing, served with house prepared mustard seed and a house prepared jam. My entree was Coquilles St. Jacque, nice portion of scallops, perfectly seasoned and prepared and served with garlic roasted cauliflower. My companion had the Steak Au Poirve, again prepared to perfection. We topped off the meal with Dessert, chocolate mousse for my friend, and coffee (individual french press) and a fruit tower with poached pears and whipped cream for me. Both desserts were wonderfully decadent. This restaurant is a keeper! Not inexpensive, but worth the price in both quality and quantity of the food.
Best food in Rehoboth
It was a great experience and the best meal in Rehoboth! Tried the lobster pasta special - it was outstanding and my husband’s steak au poivre was to die for. Service would have been a 5 rating if we didn’t have to wait for our table. We will be back!
This is the second time we’ve had dinner at La Fable and it was just as good as the first time. Our group ordered La Fable salad, and I split the seafood crepe with my husband. All yummy. We also ordered trout almondine, beef bourguignon and the steak, all beautiful, generous and so good. The waiters are beyond friendly and helpful, the food and wine is delicious, and it’s a fabulous value for the high quality of French food they serve. I only wish there was another one in Pennsylvania near Valley Forge! The owner makes herself known and is very sweet. She cares about her customers and I think this restaurant will be around for years to come.
We’ve been to Fable many times, and stellar as always. The regular bartenders were on vacation and the drinks were definitely not up to their normal standards....
But otherwise, perfect!!!
Loved beef bourguign and trout. Owner fab and attentive. Somewhat cramped however. Decor lovely as was the service.
everything was outstanding. the food, service, atmosphere etc. very cozy atmosphere, reminiscent of many french restaurants. will be back again soon. Dennis
Elegant! A virtual taste of Paris from the decor, to the food, to the service, to the music, to the ambience. We had the cassoulet and lamb dishes, and both were superb--appetizing to the palate and to the eyes. Hostess and wait staff were friendly and engaging. An excellent choice for a special occasion or an enchanted evening.
We had a wonderful dinner. The food was delicious. The service was excellent. It was my first time at Fable. I'm looking forward to going back again soon!
Exceptional food and service. On weekends they have a piano player who is outstanding.
We've dined at La Fable many times, always happily. Somehow we were a little disappointed this time. The escargots were so loaded with garlic that, hours later, our taste buds continued to be overwhelmed. The steak frites - fine, but not as spectacular as our waitress indicated. The mussels, similarly - fine. At this price point we really do hold the restaurant (our favorite in Rehoboth Beach) to the highest of standards. We'll be back, but with continued high expectations.
Excellent food and wine. The beef bourgignon was melt in your mouth.
Great interpretation of classic French food.
wonderful to have a french restaurant at the beach! all the classics are on the menu and they are prepared very well. the server was knowledgeable, the room perfectly parisian, the wines are are a perfect match to the food and bottles are reasonably priced. we will definitely be back!
Great experience, delicious food, attentive staff! I will definitely be back!
We had a wonderful meal. We went on a Sunday night so the restaurant was quiet. I had the escargot and Coquille which were both perfect. My husband had the steak and a Cesar salad, he thought they were perfect. Servings were generous and staff was very attentive. We will definitely return.
I just Love Fable. It never disappoints. The food is great and I like To try something different each time. Had the Beef crepe and it was fabulous. Great depth of flavor.
Our dining experience was a 10+. The food, service, and ambience all blended to create a wonderful evening.
Fantastic as always! An absolute gem in Rehoboth.
Perhaps the best cooking and menu planning in the region. Skilled and dedicated service under the leadership of an owner who truly seems to care about her customers and her staff. We luckily discovered La Fable on a weeknight in the offseason when it is usually closed; the room wasn't busy so ratings of ambience and noise level are pretty meaningless. But on a cold, quiet night the explanation and preparation of everything we ordered was great, and there was hardly a dish on the menu we didn't want to try. Not sure how or why this special restaurant somehow stays under the radar screen in the area, but it is absolutely worth many visits.
The food and service at La Fable were excellent. I savored every bite of the seared trout with tasty sauce and haricots verts, and my husband enjoyed his chicken cordon bleu despite a greater amount of Dijon than he would have preferred. We ended our meal with silky creme brulee and coffee made in a French press. Although we didn't like some of the background music which sounded more like chatter, our waiter decreased the volume for us. We dined early and the restaurant was quiet otherwise. We would return to celebrate a special occasion.
This place is a gem! The French cuisine is excellent and the service is great. The atmosphere is warm and cozy, and you can actually hear your friends talk! It's evident that the owner, Megan, sincerely cares about your experience. She and her staff make sure their customers are pleased. I highly recommend it.
Read reviews that the servers were attentive. I agree with those reviews. Both the hostess & server gave off friendly vibes - we felt welcomed.
Nice flowers - have not seen gypsophylla (Baby’s breath) flowers in ages! I’m a horticulturist-former agriculture inspector - those flowers brought back memories - now that I’m retired!
La Fable is deserving of it's 5 star rating. The food was first class and the wait staff was well trained. My husband had the steak au poivre served medium rare just as ordered and I had the poulet cordon bleu. Both dishes were perfectly cooked and full of flavor. I can't forget to mention the chocolate mousse for dessert. It was smooth and dense and a chocoholic's dream!
Outstanding! Excellent food, unique specialty drinks, above par service, and a nice atmosphere. Although to be fair it probably should show $$ instead of $, but the food was incredible.
Service was excellent and our waiter was very knowledgeable. My husband had trout and left nothing but crumbs. My steak was perfectly cooked. We enjoyed the cheese plate also. The place is tiny, so reservations are problably a good thing. The wine was very expensive.
Great, but can’t imagine a busy night as tables are very close .
Amazing restaurant. Definitely the best in Rehoboth Beach if not all of Delaware. Will be going back and often. Fantastic desserts and the steak au poivre was delicious. Would give 6 stars if possible.
Amazing and incredible!
This was our third visit to La Fable. The food has been consistently good, the service always friendly and efficient, and the over-all atmosphere is wonderful. It reminds me of the movie Midnight in Paris.
Still my favorite restaurant. The first time I visited I had the boeuf bourguignon and it was amazing. We were there for Valentine's Day 2018 and it was on the menu so I chose it again. It was even better than the first time. They just keep getting better and better. Don't know how Meg does it, because it is so hard to make a perfect dish better, but she does it.
This was the steak special..fantastic and the duck was delicious as well!
We love Fable! Meghan has created a wonderful dining experience from beginning to end!
Our service was excellent, food was excellent and the unexpected fun came when we had a glass of champagne at the bar - stayed another 2 hours singing with the pianist and bartender. Such an impromptu entertaining experience. To top it off the owner came by to ask if everything was to our liking and gave us a little background about the restaurant. After that we met some really really nice locals! We will be back!
Warm and elegant ambiance, great food and fantastic service.
The food here is amazing! No words can describe it! Go, eat, love.
The food was excellent. We were very well attended to by staff and the owner! It was our first time there but won’t be our last!
Very enjoyable, prompt service, exceptional quality food.
We lived in Brussels, Belgium and experienced excellent French cuisine. La Fable was just as good and the service was great, servers were very attentive and knowledgeable.
It was out 15th wedding anniversary and Megan, Russ, Mathew and Darrell and of course the chefs all made a very wonderful memory for us.
Excellent in every way !!!!
