La Fable Brasserie, located on the beach block of Rehoboth's iconic Baltimore Avenue, offers traditional French cuisine with a bohemian Parisian street cafe flair. Whether you choose to join "Fable" for an early meal or cocktail during Leve-Tot, for an intimate dinner with friends, or to enjoy a late night rendezvous at our "piano" bar, we hope for each guest to create their own dining story.

From the welcome by the owner, to the impeccable service, to delicious entrees and dessert, our dinner last Friday night was exceptional. The star of the show was the food, in particular the pan-seared duck with a cherry wine sauce, homemade gnocci, and charred broccolini....There's a nice wine list as well, and the Cahors was a perfect complement to the duck. Generous portions! So we ended up ordering one dessert with 3 forks. We dined outside, and were glad the restaurant is on a quieter side street. Live piano music was a pleasant bonus! Highly recommend. Send the teenagers out for pizza (we did!)More

Delicious food. Excellent service by Gregory. Warm, French bistro atmosphere. After more than a year of being away, it was great to be back at one of our favorite restaurants! Scallops and Steak Frites- yummy!

A sibling’s weekend in Rehobeth Beach ended with dinner at La Fable. When we walked through the door I was happy to hear they had live piano music (even if it was an electronic keyboard) . Since the pandemic it had been so long since...I had been to a nice restaurant with live music - I had really missed that! As the evening progressed what started out as nice unobtrusive accompaniment to our meal turned into an ear splitting, hands over the ears, occasionally off key, decibel levels hovering in the danger zone, SHRIEKING into the microphone from the bar where the musician was located. The restaurant is contained in a very small space with the bar immediately adjacent to the dining room. The din coming from the bar was so loud we could not have a normal conversation without shouting. I’m sorry, but if the music is hurting my ears and I can’t converse with my companions it’s too loud! And turned what was an otherwise pleasant dining experience into a race to get out the door. I asked our sever to please have the manager do something about the volume but was ignored.More

I can’t say enough good things about La Fable. The atmosphere is terrific — not cramped at all, with furniture and music that give it a real French feel. The staff is very attentive and professional. And the food? Incredible. We had the cheese plate,...both salads on the menu, the chicken cordon blue and and the beef bourgenone. It was all perfect. Larger portions than we expected, and delicious. Best spot on the Delaware Beaches, by far.More

The food was excellent here. We came to celebrate our anniversary and we were not disappointed. Sandy, our waitress was excellent. Recommended the special boulabase and it was awesome. My wife had the steak & it too was excellent. Only downside is the room is...small & we had a loud group behind us. I’ll go back !!More

Live in Lewes and this was our 1st time to La Fables as it was a special occasion. WOW. So worth the wait. Started with some nice wine and onto the appetizers. Escargot and Caesar Salad. Both amazing. GF had the scallop with mushrooms for...the main course. I had the steak. Both meals were beyond amazing. Choc Mouse Cake for dessert with Choc Martini for the GF. Service was fantastic and the food was a close to perfect as one could hope. Would go back again for a special occasion. Too pricy for a weekly visit.More

We visited Fable while Covid restrictions were on so our experience may not be the status quo. The French food was very good. I had the Fable salad and cordon bleu. Both were delicious. We enjoyed the wine and service was prompt. We'll definitely revisit....We were in a relatively small room that seemed to have lots of tables. I suspect our quiet meal may not be the norm, but we'll need to revisit to know for sure.More

Best foie gras! This is pricey but authentic French! My husband and I both ordered the cordon blue. Portions were enormous and we could have split ! Server was professional and knowledgeable- perhaps a tad pushy when it came to ordering dessert. We ate outside...during covid in November. They brought a small heater for the ground next to our table which helped keep us warm. The inside looks very romantic. I highly recommend !More
