Service was good, and the food (sans greens) was good. I had the Gnocchi and my wife had the pasta special. Both came with a green cover of leaves and other stuff. Just didn't get it. Both meals would have been terrific as opposed to...More

A farm to table restaurant with great food. The beet salad was excellent and large enough to share. My husband had the mussels and they were very fresh and had a great dippable sauce. The cavatapoi is homemade and has that lovely homemade al dente...More

I chose the most expensive dish on the lunch menu --cod with ratatouile-- but the fish was overcooked and the ratatouile consisted of olives and the odd tomato.More

Sorry your meal wasn't enjoyed. It is 5oz of a puttanesca sauce under the cod fillet, topped with 2 tablespoons of an olive, caper, anchovy, olive oil mixture. A thermometer is used to see if the fish is cooked to temp and never (knowingly) sent...More

We went here for dinner one night after shopping West 4th. Typically one requires a reservation but we hit the jackpot when we walked right in and got a table. I am convinced that appetizers make the best meal and at Fable - so true!...More

Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative
neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture
and poetry readings, its days of flower children and
buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving
