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

I'm sorry we let you down VTH58. Sadly many things went wrong that never went wrong before on this past holiday Monday brunch (for for five years of doing brunches). This centered around communication and it won't happen again. I'm sorry again that you had...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.

A casual bistro, seeming more like a really good neighborhood restaurant, Fable serves up some pretty tasty dishes. The smoked duck was delicious, tender with just a subtle smoked flavor. The chickpea fritter serving is yummy and generous and would recommend sharing it...We also shared...More

Went for lunch, I'd describe the whole experience as - good. Wasn't anything that particularly struck out as great but the main course, dessert and wine pairing were all enjoyable. My waitress was both friendly and helpful with any questions. The lighting was dingy but...More

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
