Fable offers a well thought out menu. Favourite appies: Mushrooms and the Meatball. Highly recommend sitting at the "Kitchen Bar" and watching the action. I find I always learn a tip or two watching the cooks prepare foods in their respective sections of the kitchen....More

We booked a table for 6:30 pm snd were friendly and quickly served. The chickpea fritters and the sunchokes with squash hummus are delicious. Same for all the desserts,the duckbreast and the rockfish with Thai salad. Great place. Will come back.

Hi! Chef Bird does not have a set schedule on the line. He does travel and do outside functions often, so I do not want to promise you that he will be in house during your visit. Hope we see you here either way!

I'm afraid we are not blessed with a patio! Just to know - dogs are not legally allowed where food is served in Vancouver unfortunately. (Unless a licensed assistance dog).
