    Excellent food and service. Best duck I have tasted in years. Room was a bit on the louder side and cool so just be prepared for that.

    The place was understaffed so we had to wait 10 minutes just to get our order taken. Our food was good but its presentation was not up to the price we were charged (we had brunch). I ordered the johnny cakes with pulled pork and I was served a big pile of food that didn’t look very appealing, as it was plated in a rush.

    Fable KitchenResponded on 26 September 2022Thanks for your feedback. For sure it is harder to find hourly staff right now but the goal is to have orders taken speedily.

    Air conditioning was super cold but we mentioned it to the server and they were very nice and lower it. Menu wasn't very large, I wanted to have the Chef's tasting menu as it appears in their menu for $65 but they don't offer that option anymore. My friend wanted a simple green leaves salad and they couldn't make it as it isn't in the menu. Gnocchi are delicious! I recommend you to have a look at their menu before you go as they aren't very flexible if not in the menu. Also, isn't cheap.

    The steak was cooked perfectly but the cut was like gristle. Not the chefs fault. However the 4 chefs stood there and spoke among themselves as we sat in front of them and spoke said to the server, loud enough for us to hear about 'a fat cap'. No one came up to us to talk to us about it but instead spoke among themselves making us feel very awkward. The server asked if we would like another and considering the cut of the meat we declined, anticipating it likely would be similar. We were charged for the uneaten steak (and the chewed pieces I had to take out of my mouth) 10m later they were all shooting some new cocktail, very evidently letting us know they had no intention of  personally getting involved. I took it upon myself to go and speak to the one chef to let him know we not complainers but instead perhaps consider the cut of steak they are serving for top dollar for future patrons. It was handled poorly. And quite frankly felt amateur. 

    Fable KitchenResponded on 21 September 2022I will definitely pass on your feedback to the chef.
