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.

Wonderful date night out for us. Service from Misha was genuinely personable and prompt. We were concerned the vegetarian pepinos would be an afterthought but not so- the chickpea fritters and oysters starters were fantastic and my mouth is watering thinking of the gnocchi and the Haida g’wai halibut. Hope to be back again :)

Thank you for a stellar experience at Fable on the evening of September 22nd! We would particularly like to give kudos to our waiter, Jason- he was fantastic!! There were 8 of us there in advance of the Elton John concert- Jason took excellent care of us and ensured that we were out on time. He even knew our evening plans upon our arrival, which indicates that there must be great communication and attention to detail amongst the staff. Our only regret was that we had to rush out... it would have been ideal to take our time and be able to savor the last few menu items as opposed to hurrying through. We will be back, and next time be sure to leave the evening open. The whole experience of the evening was kind of magical, and Fable (from the delicious food on the Tasting Menu to the fantastic service) was a big part in making that happen. I would highly recommend this dining experience to anyone!

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

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.
