Our first time there. The food & service was wonderful. The restaurant is quite small which makes for a tight fit. We really enjoyed our dinner.

The food wasn't special in any way and certainly wasn't French in preparation. We both had the special of the day and it was Boeuf Bourgignon. We were so disappointed in this brothy dish with tasteless meat and no deep rich flavors. It was like having some kind of forever boiled beef with undercooked potatoes. There were no onions or peas and the "sauce" was broth and boring in taste.

Several locals we had conversation with mentioned Fable as one of the best in Rehoboth. It did not disappoint. The beef bourguignon was excellent as was the mushroom soup du jour. We had an excellent French Rose and finished up with a lemony dessert (made ion house). Definitely recommend Fable and look forward to a return visit when in Rehoboth again.

This was our first time in Rehoboth and to La Fable. Can't wait to return to both! Our server, Darryl, was awesome! The menu is small, but everything we tried was wonderful.We had the steak tartare, coquille St. Jacques and Steak Au Poivre. All were excellent. We had drinks at the bar before our meal and there was a fun crowd there.

An overall enjoyable dining experience, although I was surprised & disappointed that french onion soup was not a menu staple, & the noise level was such that conversation was a challenge. Re the soup, it was explained that the kitchen is very small, but even so it's a signature for a french oriented venue. It was also a cold, rainy night so cold vicchysoise (sp?) seemed an unfortunate offering. On the positive side, both the proprietor & the wait staff went out of their way to be of service and could not have been more helpful or attentive.

PS: I was also surprised, that while we made our reservation through Open Table, we were told we were not eligible for any Open Table points . That seemed very odd.

Despite being a windy, rainy Saturday following Labor Day, the restaurant was full by 6:30. Small cozy restaurant with excellent and attentive staff. Waiter made recommendations upon request but was not intrusive. Water glasses and bread plates watched and refilled without a second glance. Limited menu selections but there was something for everyone. Only recommendation would have been to switch out the cold soup for a warm one to match the weather outside. Would definitely return.

We loved how authentic the French cuisine is here! Since it was our anniversary they gave us a nice glass of champagne which is a really nice touch, classy.The owner must have put a lot of passion into this restaurant. We really felt it’s a real French bistro! Love the signage as well of fable when you walk in. We feel it rivals the Blue Moon Resturant. Our server Darryl was sophisticated , knowledgeable and fun. We definitely will be back!

We have always had good experiences here. The menu is not vast but there is something for everyone. Everything that I have ever had here has been delicious and beautifully presented. Last night I had an amazing duck. It was cooked perfectly and was moist, tender, and flavorful. I started with the salmon rillettes, which were wonderful, light and tasty. My three dinner companions were very pleased with their meals. The service was attentive and not overbearing and our server did not have either "no problem" or "are you still working on that" in her vocabulary - a relief, and unfortunately, a rarity these days. I had one of the best rye Manhattans that I have ever had. The tables toward the front are preferable in my opinion as the rear tables are close to the kitchen and bathrooms. The light is better as well if it's still daylight.

Everything about the place was a pleasure. We were a bit early for our reservation and wanted to have a cocktail before settling in at our table. They were pleasantly accommodating. It was the best meal I have had in ages. The waitress even suggested the traditional sautern to accompany the fois gras. Her wine recommendation was excellent and not overpriced. Great experience overall.
