    We were seated outside, it was good but do keep in mind buses use 4th Ave, and they fly by quite frequently. The inside is lovely, good ambiance and has air conditioning. Food was delicious, and our server was friendly!

    The appetizers were excellent: we had chickpea fritters and kale salad. The main meals flatiron steak, roast duck breast, and short ribs were also delicious! The person in our party who ordered the Ling cod wasn't as happy with their meal as the rest of us... service was excellent and we had a great evening!

    This place far exceeded our expectations. It is an unassuming little place in an unassuming little neighborhood, but the food was fantastic. We tried several dishes and would order all of them again. The service was good, low-key and friendly. Prices were fair. Given how expensive dining out in Vancouver can be, sometimes without justification, I would recommend this place without hesitation.

    This was our first time to Fable, having heard good things from a friend; and, sadly, we were disappointed, in the end. The server was good, and the ambiance comfortable; but, what really lacked in quality was the food, mysteriously. The menu is so precise and limited that I thought they would have aced the outcome - not so! The quality of the farm-to-table produce and meat was completely overshadowed by sodium, so much so that it was unpalatable. Additionally, the size of the portions was not proportional to the cost, given that the flavours were so masked. The same thing could well have been served at a White Spot. Another odd twist was that they didn’t have the wine that we ordered from the menu, offering one of lesser quality instead. Why have it advertised, if you don’t stock it? If I’m asked by others for my opinion, I’ll be forced to say that this is a restaurant that seems to heavily rely on its unique farm-fresh base, without being able to back its reputation with the high quality of other Vancouver restaurants.

    We enjoyed th food at Feast Kitchen. The ingredients weee very fresh and served in a very creative way. The particular highlights included the kale salad, duck and short ribs. I liked the Pilsner on tap. I think a bit more choice would make this place more people , particularly if there was a vegan option. Our server was wonderful.

    Had a great time trying the prohibition brunch with my companions. Service was amazing as per usual I like how they wait until everyone was done their plates before bringing the next course so we did not feel rushed. Would have loved for the cookies to be warmed as well but delightful meal overall and an absolute steal at the price offered.

    Very disappointing birthday dinner. The fish was really over cooked, even on the second try, yet the veggies were under cooked and the flavours overall were banal. The poor server didn’t know what to do about it but tried her best. There were also very few non-meat items on offer and nothing remotely healthy. Neither of us would go back. Too bad because on a previous visit I did have a lovely (though pricy!) brunch there. I can see why the place was empty.

    Don't expect to hear anyone you're with at their brunches. It was so loud, and we were so close to the other tables, we nearly ate without speaking. And then they added music?! Great food and the service is wonderful, but if you want conversation don't go for brunch.

    The only reason I didn’t rate higher was because the gnocchi dish which I always ordered has gotten smaller. Also, the Kale salad had changed as well. Otherwise, the service was excellent and it’s still one of our favourite places in Kits.
