    My friends and I loved the food! It was so tasteful. The only thing for me was the intense music, not my vibes at all especially for a cosy Sunday dining.

    I went with a friend for dinner. Amazing food, lovely staff, beautiful setting, and great drinks list. It’s definitely not the cheapest place, but totally worth it. I will be back many times to try more of the menu!

    soo good! Sable is a great place for vegans and non-vegans alike. Delicious, creative menu with great portion sizes, and plenty of options for people with allergies/dietary requirements. Only one thing that I would like - more veggies! Lots of fake meats and cheeses in the dishes - which taste great - but it would be nice to have a few more vegetables in the mains. Overall, great atmosphere, lovely staff, and amazing food. Definitely a must-go!

    clever 100% plant-based menu but a 45-minute wait for a couple of bagels wasn't great. Staff pressures clearly impact service. I would go back but not for a year or so until they find their feet.

    While the food and ambience was lovely, we had two mains bought out and then proceeded to wait another hour and a half for another 4, one of which was inedible and not as described by the waiter. Another waiter was overly rude during a miscommunication making us feel quite uncomfortable.

    I really love what Sable are doing, as big fans of the Cremorne cafe we were very excited to visit their new restaurant, they did not disappoint. They were exceptionally friendly and welcoming, and the food was delicious. I cannot recommend them enough, everyone needs to visit Sable. Special shoutout to the cheesecake doughnuts, wow.

    Was really excited by this restaurant as it's 100% vegan and the menu looked promising. Started with entrees and drinks with prompt service. However, we waited over an hour for mains to be served. We asked the staff after 40 minutes and were reassured it was coming soon with no explaination. After another 25 minutes our mains finally arrived. Food was fair-good. I would say the fries were the best part of the burgers. Although our waitress was apologetic, kitchen seemed very disorganised. The table next to us were sat before us and they hadn't received their starters whilst we were waiting for mains. Was pretty frustrated, didn't stay for dessert.

    Great food and big portions which we love! Calamari and arancini were incredible! I did book a table and apparently it was an outside table which my booking confirmation didn't say, but we got a small couch spot inside. Next time I hope we can dine in properly - I recommend maybe calling in just to make sure what you've booked :) The music was a bit too loud, it was kind of hard to talk to each other. I think our waitress was on one of her first shifts, but she was very lovely though, also the restaurant was full and I know how hard hospo work is, so no dramas there. Will come again for sure! Thanks.

    Delicious food, and the 'vibe' - term used by our FUN FABULOUS waiter - was cool as! I do think the food was a bit salty however. I was so thirsty when I got home and was getting up all night to drink water! Also the second cocktail was served in a warm glass, presumably from the dishwasher...but this is an easy mistake to make! All in all, would recommend! My partner and I really enjoyed our plant-based experience :)

    Was good overall. The Mac and cheese dish was too bland, and could have used more salt. House salad was great, gnocchi great, arancini great. Tiramisu was insanely sweet and like eating cookie dough. They just opened so definitely one to watch. Music was very loud which I know is the vibe they want but was difficult to hear people across the table. Worth checking out and I will be back to try again.
