Tucked into the hip West 4th Kitsilano neighbourhood, Fable offers a cozy atmosphere that instantly hints at the farm-to-table food theme.

Mason jars serve multiple purposes, from light fixtures to table candles, and the tables themselves are made of polished wood that lends a warmth to the space.

The pristine kitchen, easily seen by patrons and passers-by on the street, is an open and creative space, lined with a wooden bar that beckons customers to sit back and relax with friends.

Impeccable service & exceptional food! Seating a bit tight, but sitting at counter facing kitchen is a good show.

I have been meaning to coming here for years as I heard good things from a referral and finally did. Farm to table style food. It is a casual atmosphere with a very good selection of wine, by the glass, half bottle or full bottle. We had a duck meatball with tagliatelle & corn bread to start. My friend had their flat iron steak which was beautifully cooked med rare & I had their moist pork chop. We shared their brown sugar cake which was mega sweet! Everything including service was very good.

I have really enjoyed previous meals at Fable and was really looking forward to it. In the end the food was good but definitely not as well executed as in meals past. My potatoes were dry and bland, the canned tuna was also somewhat bland which is not what I remember from past visits. The beet salad was excellent and the duck was nicely cooked. Our entrees took a very, very long time to come after our appetizers and half our party was starving. Overall disappointing.

It was so sad to see my favorite place less than “bustling”. The food was still stellar- I was initially reserved about the prix fixe but left raving!- and our server was delightful.

We had a fabulous evening. Excellent food, friendly and diligent service, plus, to boot, a lovely chat with two total strangers sitting nearby who were absolutely delightful. What a fine way to remember your restaurant whlie we survive your temporary closure until the new year. We look forward to coming back tin 2021!!

COVID precautions are the reason for the low score on atmosphere. The restaurant is doing the best it can and we felt safe. Two servers: one was excellent and the other self involved. But we went for the food and we were not disappointed. Everything was perfect. We loved the chickpea fritters and both the gnocchi and risotto. Tough times for restaurants and we are glad that Fable is hanging in there. Please support them and go and get some great food.

It was a bit too dim in the dining area for our liking. So much so, it was difficult to get the phone app to register the menu without a flashlight. The service was fine for the most part, there was a long period of time between when we finished eating and having to ask for the bill . The food was very well done. The serving side was generous and everything was delicious.

Chef did not disappoint. The food was scrumptious and creative and the service was excellent. I gave the atmosphere a 4 instead of 5 only because the impact of a half empty space due to COVID requirements. The team has done a great job making the space as inviting as possible.

Where to enjoy a glass of wine in Kitsilano

Where to enjoy a glass of wine in Kitsilano

Chef Trevor Bird came up with the name for this farm-to-table restaurant while he was competing on Top Chef Canada. With a menu that changes seasonally based on the availability of fresh local ingredients, Fable ranks as one of the best restaurants in the city, if not the entire country. Its dedication to local producers extends to the wine list with featured bottles from the Okanagan and Cowichan valleys as well as vineyards in the US Pacific Northwest.

Vancouver breakfast spots for tasty oatmeal bowls

Vancouver breakfast spots for tasty oatmeal bowls

It’s not hard to see how Fable – a name that cleverly riffs on the “farm-to-table” concept – has been drawing crowds daily since 2012. Owner and chef Trevor Bird is a former Top Chef competitor renowned for his fresh approach to farmhouse fare. Everything about this Kitsilano spot feels cozy, from the Canadiana comfort food to the rustic wooden beams and hand-carved signage. Stop in during weekend brunch service to enjoy a bowl of overnight oats, which are smooth and creamy without tasting too mushy. Topped with banana, trail mix and fresh berries, this light-yet-filling breakfast is a hit.

Vancouver brunch spots for morning mimosas

Fable’s famous Boozy Brunch happens on the last Sunday of every month and is a can’t-miss event for mimosa fans. The Kitsilano restaurant’s monthly event features half-priced brunch drinks from 10:30 am to 2:00 pm. Mimosas are made with sparkling Italian prosecco and your choice of orange or grapefruit juice. While discounted drinks might only happen once a month, the stellar brunch line up is available every Saturday and Sunday. Chef Trevor Bird serves up some of the city’s best farmhouse fare – think steak and eggs, pulled-pork Johnny cakes, and eggs Benny drizzled in creamy olive oil hollandaise.
