Absolutely wonderful! This was our second visit to La Fable, this year for our 20th anniversary. Everything was great. The service was wonderful, attentive, but subtle, there when you needed her but not intrusive. The pace of the dishes coming out was perfect. everyone just made a special night all the more so. Thank you.

Once again an amazing dinner at Fable.

We went to Fable tonight for the first time since January. As always, it was amazing. We had a combination of classic regular menu items and specials. While you could say the menu is limited, every dish is perfected and the specials, as expected, were amazing. The regulars included the deviled eggs and steak frites. The specials included puff pastry shrimp appetizers, amazing; crab cakes, again amazing, and berry tart for dessert, to die for! As always the service was perfect!

"Delightful Seaside Dining... a la Francais"

What a lovely dining experience we shared with good friends! Interesting menu choices of French staples (boeuf burguinon, steak frites, coquilles, canard), all authentically prepared and beautifully presented (chef's from Nice; that's nice 😉 Fairly priced wines by the glass, plus full bar. Attentive, helpful service (merci, Nick!)... and a delicious shared 'chambord cake' dessert... Ooh la la! We'll return soon...

Outstanding establishment

Service was exceptional. Our waiter (Nick) was professional and helpful. Food was very good. It is amazing how staff manage to do their job on such a tiny space. It was a bit loud to my taste.
