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.

We've been Fable regulars pretty much since the beginning, and last night's dinner was, of course, wonderful. The chickpea fritters are more elevated than they used to be, nicely complemented by a yummy curry mayo, and I absolutely loved my salmon entrée, which was perfectly poached in lemon butter. My spouse had a declicious salad composed of greens from Fable's roof garden and a pork duo; she reported that the pork belly was exquisite and most of the loin was lovely, but some of the end pieces were a bit on the fatty side. We both adored our deserts. For vino, I had a beautifully smooth Okanagan rosé and my spouse had a nicely balanced pinot noir that was perfect match for the pork. BTW, this three-course pre-Bard on the Beach menu went for $37 and got us to our show in plenty of time.

Love this restaurant and its “farm to table” menu. We took advantage of the Bard on the Beach menu which was a huge benefit. Food was excellent, service was great as always and it was Wednesday, so BC wines were 1/2 price; a bonus.

Great experience, our guests loved it and we had a great time as always. Only very slight complaint was drinks service was occasionally slow, but it was a busy night and staff was so awesome (especially in getting our reso setup as I screwed up dates and they were very patient ). Love fable and will be back soon!

Generally speaking, an excellent feed. Panzanella salad was a bit "underdressed". Ribs were fabulous and the rest was excellent. Half off on BC wines on Wednesdays was a pleasant surprise.

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.

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.
