    We have dined here over the years and we were surprised at the menu changes. Lots of small plates to share. They are trying something new with the menu but I am not sure I like the new menu. The food is very good and the wait staff is friendly. It has a large bar area and I think they are trying to carry the bar menu over to the dining area. I guess time will tell.

    We had Easter Brunch at Earl's and were not sure what to expect since we could not find a special Easter Brunch menu on their web site. Brunch was great! The food was very tasty and the service was great. We had a problem with one salad entrée that was supposed to include chicken but came without any, this situation was rectified immediately by the staff. We will go back to Earl's again.

    Dined on 3/23/2014
    We have previously enjoyed Earls with our friends for late night Sunday dining after attending a dance venue.. We were extremely disappointed this time to find that the menu had changed to bare bones choices. Although the hamburger we all chose was excellent, we had looked forward to the Special Sandwich which was previously offered (Chicken, with fig). Also the wine list for wines by the glass is much too expensive for what is offered, I do not understand how this menu change can attract more customers in Cherry Creel as they apparently believe. We will not be returning

    I had the Salmon and it was amazing! The Salad was also delicious. I would have to say though that I was pretty disappointed with the desert. Although it tasted very good it was a tiny little dollop of ice cream. I was expecting a full ice cream sundae. Compared to the other restaurant menus for the week, I think Earls could have offered an appetizer and have been a little more generous with the desert. I left feeling that I didn't really get the value that Restaurant week is supposed to give.

    If you are looking to sit at an actual table, make sure you call to make a reservation and specifically request it. If not, they'll stick you at the bar area and won't even acknowledge that you made a reservation.

    The food was very good, although they have changed their menu which took us by surprise. The new menu, which I guess they are testing, is more casual dining with a limited number of dinner entrees. Their seafood items are very limited, essentially only one salmon entree.

    Whatever your looking for -- Earls has it. This is a great place to go for any occasion. The menu is diverse -- all types of fare are served here. However, Earls also executes this impressive menu with skill. We had salad, a few sushi rolls, mixed drinks and even a burger. This is the Swiss Army Knife of restaurants and it simply just does many things so well is it hard not to recommend. While Earls has a few locations, the Cherry Creek location was very good and notable for quality service in addition to the previously mentioned experience. Maybe the most elite diners are not flocking to Earls (yet) -- but we sure did and had a very good with excellent service.

    Watch your check carefully. We were there for dinner during happy hour, and ordered several items from the happy hour menu. When we received our bill, we were NOT charged Happy Hour prices, but about $2 more per item. Food was good, but my husband ordered the special, a reuben sandwich, and it had VERY thin corned beef, and the price was $15! We probably won't be returning

    We were able to get a reservation for New Year's Eve (somewhat last minute), and we were pleasantly surprised. We were expecting more of a "bar type restaurant," and this restaurant definitely offered more -- good menu, nice selections, and a great wine/cocktail menu. Our server was great, very pleasant and overall a good experience. We did have to wait a bit longer for our main entrees, but again it was New Year's Eve and the restaurant was full.

  • Thumbs down on New concept
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 12/23/2013
    We love earls on cherry creek. Recently we've seen signs for a Special new concept happening there. Please being back the old menu! Not only were our favorites gone ( chicken tacos, chicken Brie sandwich, rib dinner, rocket salad) but there is hardly anything worth trying on the new small plate menu. It says they are for "sharing" but many things are not even shareable -- like the soup and the chicken taco ( not the same as he yummy old tacos -- one taco is on the "sharing" menu - our waitress even said "who is the taco for?"). French fries and dry ribs were very ordinary. Very very sad.

    This Canadian Chain is getting ready for a massive expansion into the US and this shows in the food - very generic. The steaks were very good, but the sauces were bland and nothing of note. They are definitely not pushing any limits and playing it safe in order to appeal to the masses. So a typical chain restaurant. Ambiance was modern and noise level was low, even though it was fairly busy. Sports TV (sound off) in the dining room as well as the bar does not seem to fit the setting - not even Outback crosses that line. Overall an average experience.

    We went for early dinner before a play in Cherry Creek North area. The food was very good, the ambience and décor were fine (the bar was hopping with football fans, we were in the dining area). The staff were pleasant but not very available, I had to go find somebody to help with service. It's a comfortable, reasonably priced, well located place to meet!

    We had a business dinner at Earl's, and sat outside on the patio on a gorgeous evening. Service was attentive and food was delicious. We had a young server who wasn't yet well-versed in opening bottles of wine, which caused a small disaster, but the manager took care of everything. And the server will learn how to open wine!

    You can't beat the service at Earl's. Every time we go the servers, hostesses and manager all see to it that we are completely happy. The margaritas and mojitos are amazing! Order the dry ribs as an appetizer, yum! Everything we've ordered has been fantastic. Weeknights seem to be more crowded than weekends.

Ordered soup....no spoon given and couldn't get one or find a server for 8 minutes. Duct tape on booth and looked bad. I have had a good experience there before but this was not a good experience. Food was just oka. Just not happy with the lunch.

The blackened chicken was ample and made my head sweat, just the way I like it. My wife had the salmon and it was also delicious as were the fish and chicken tacos. We had a fabulous server and they kept the water filled almost the whole meal. Looke forward to going back.
