    The service was horrible and , there was a MOUSE or a small RAT running around the floor,

    Fable Diner & BarResponded 1 day agoPlease send a message as to where you were sitting. This location has some 'activity' and though we pay a pest control company a lot per month to address this, it really helps to tell them where there were 'sightings'. Also to give feedback on specifics of the service, so we can provide some guidance.

    Unfortunately we ordered the Eggs Benny of the day it was with a tomato jam and caramelized onions. It was soooo sweet, I had to scrape the sauce off of it. We then had a lemon parfait, which was actually a deconstructed lemon meringue pie, great idea but again way too sweet we had two mouthfuls each and left it. I will not be going back and I would suggest that the chef take it easy on the sugar. The wine wasn’t cold, the service was okay we were on a time crunch so I thought the benny of the day would be quick. No photos as there was nothing special to take a photo of.

    Fable Diner & BarResponded on 26 September 2022Thanks for coming in. I feel the same way about Benny's - I prefer savory every time. The dessert is admittedly sweet. Thanks for your feedback

    The food and service were horrendous. My sister's food was rock hard and my food sat on the counter in the kitchen for 20 minutes. All the dishes were brought out at different times. The worst was when you sent food back you could hear the kitchen staff and waitress speaking about the issues.

    My tomato soup and double cheeseburger were both great. My wife thought the same of her grilled cheese. Casual dress was appreciated. The Fable is around the corner from the Hilton Vancouver. Warning, their house salad was great but more than enough for two people.

    We had brunch at Fable - and it was wonderful! We were the first ones at the door at 9:00 am Saturday morning and probably didn’t need reservations. Even so, the food was amazing. So much attention paid to every detail. I had the Chefs Benny. The Hollandaise sauce was buttery and thick, with a fresh flavor. The star of the dish was the potatoes. Oh my goodness! I haven’t had breakfast potatoes like that since my favorite breakfast place closed about 15 years ago. The potatoes were well seasoned, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Each bite was a burst of flavor with the perfect texture. We will definitely return the next time we’re in Vancouver.

    It’s probably my fault but farm to table gives the impression of interesting, in season food. This is a burger/sports bar. Burgers are good. Long cooked pork belly needs to be cooked slower. Sort of good but a total mismatch on expectations. Service was enthusiastic amateur hour. People nice but need training, it’s a business.

    Staff were lovely, food was not. I ordered the tomato soup and i'm positive it was poured from a Campbell's Soup can and heated.

    Fable Diner & BarResponded on 21 September 2022The soup is house-made and is usually very well received. Your impression will be passed on. Thank you so much for your visit and the compliments to the staff

    Seated on the outdoor patio as I’d requested which was nice as inside was quite a bit louder which makes it difficult for a group of 8 to converse easily. Unfortunately the ball got dropped a couple of times though. Our server took our drinks order and then came by about 15 minutes later to take our food order. He didn’t notice that none of the drinks had been served yet and when we enquired he found that they hadn’t even been started by the bar. That was cleared up but then when the food orders arrived, the pepperoni pizza ordered by one of our party was prepared without the pepperoni. A replacement pizza was quickly prepared to remedy that. The restaurant wasn’t particularly busy with customers so not sure why things seemed to go awry.

    After reading the reviews, the expectations were a bit high but the food left a lot to be desired. The 'glory sandwich' was missing ingredients (all veggies?) and there was no mention of why that was the case. The drinks were hit or miss as well (my 'caesar' was watered down and lacking 'fixings', spouse's Bees Knees was better). Most dishes (based on a scan of surrounding tables) seemed to have a heaping of purple lettuce/radicchio - my Huevos Rancheros was completely buried and you couldn't make out any ingredients underneath. Service was ok - nothing to crow about. The 'ambience' was marred by a loud dump truck next door - it was just a small courtyard with tables in close proximity. Saving grace was that prices were reasonable by Vancouver standards.

    Nice atmosphere on the patio but the food was not great, unfortunately. Especially the prohibition brunch was too expensive for what you get and the pastries were even hard to bite and didn't seem very fresh. Anyway, not a bad experience overall but I don't think we'll go back.

    We went to Fable for a Sunday brunch. The weekend brunch combo specials was well priced, which is what we both had. The combo comes with: a coffee (good stuff!) or tea AND a cocktail (My red sangria was not the best); two pastries (quite small); and the main dish. Overall a good and filling brunch.

    Went for dinner before a show at the QE theatre. Basic menu but tasty food. Love the two outdoor patios - we were up on the top patio. Staff were very friendly - our server was excellent. They don't have any cider which I drink so would suggest they stock even one brand. Would definitely go again.

    The best part about this restaurant is the courtyard patio - which we got to enjoy on a nice, sunny day. The food and service were pretty average and may get better with time. Perhaps that is why we had no trouble getting a table. However, I would still recommend this spot.

    Sat on the patio, really cool building. Not much atmosphere on the patio however, there was little to no music so it was quiet. Felt a little awkward and the tables are awfully small. Burgers and drinks however were amazing! We'd definitely go back but sit inside.

    This was our first time eating at Fable Diner and Bar. We'd eaten at the Kingston, the restaurant replaced by Fable, many times, and we were disappointed when we learned it was closing. That said, we were very pleasantly surprised with our Fable experience. We had a great dinner on the patio. Our Kale Cesar Salad was very tasty, and the pepperoni and mushroom pizza was very good! Our drinks were refreshing. We would go back again. The service was excellent.

    Our server, Gage, was great. Food was good, though my fries were a bit overdone and the menu is a bit limited. Only big fail was my drink - Bee's Knees - supposed to be lemon, honey and gin. No discernible honey taste and really just tasted like lemon water.

    Overall not too bad - it took awhile for orders/drinks/food (looked like maybe only one or two people working an entire section) but the food was good. Chalking it up to it being relatively new, so will probably come back and give it another go in a month or two. Only other complaint was they were out of quite a few things - including their Cheese Pizza which is one less vegetarian option on an already fairly limited menu (Not all vegetarians want a salad when they go out to eat). Glad they kept the roof patios from the Kingston, though I think they're going to need some space heaters out there - gets a bit chilly even in the summer evening once the sun is behind the buildings.

    Fable Diner & BarResponded on 1 August 2022Thanks for your visit. Definitely trying and hope to get in place all that you mentioned
