I went here for a birthday dinner with a couple of friends while we were in Vancouver on a business trip. We had reservations and were seated right away. The staff was very friendly and attentive. One of my party wanted to have a non-alcoholic...More

I went to Fable with high expectations (from online reviews). I must say, their food is very good, but it wasn't quite worth the hype. The ingredients are definitely great, and we all enjoyed our lunch, but it wasn't anything special like we had anticipated....More

We've been here a few times. I think the second time was a week or two after the first time becuase we loved it so much. Food is spot on and it's not typical, nor pretentious. It feels like an honest place, and where they...More

We had brunch at this restaurant. A rather rustic restaurant. They don't take reservations for lunch. We were lucky to get a table. We ordered their eggs Benedict with ham. The portions are big and it is good for sharing. The ham was tasty but...More

We went for a staff lunch and each of us ordered different items. I had the 3 cheese grilled sandwich with onion tapenade with a cup of tomato 🍅 soup. Comfort food galore. Service was good.

I went there yesterday with friends. My dietary restrictions are plenty. The cook came and discussed everything through with me and prepared a special dinner. It tasted wonderful! I really enjoyed it. My friends enjoyed their meal too. The atmosphere is very pleasant, the service...More

This was one of the best meals we have had. I like to call it 'drop your fork food'. So good that you simply drop your fork and enjoy. Fabulous service and quality, Cannot wait to go back.

Kitsilano
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
their mark on the number of organic restaurants and
fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of
Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic
expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a

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).
