The service at earls doesn't match the prices that have skyrocketed in recent months, in my opinion

Service was poor. Only one server in our area. Food was cold, steak was not cooked as ordered.

It had been almost 20 years since being at the 16th ave location. Went for New Year’s Eve dinner and all was great. Our server was excellent; pleasant, engaging and spot on. We’ll be back soon.

Good service.
Eggs were over cooked and hollandaise sauce seemed very vinegar heavy.

All of the staff were very good. However, I asked about the 'spiciness' and garlic level of the dish I ordered - I was told it was 'mild'.... It was not - too much 'heat' and way too much garlic - I couldn't eat it - took it home for someone else to eat.
Even though we were arrived at Happy Hour - it was not mentioned by server - no benefit to our dining experience. :(

Parking is a terrible situation
The meal we ordered - salmon with sauce showed on the online menu for 1 price, however billed an extra $2 at bill time
When we brought to the attention our waitress pointed out that this is how it was and that the online menu was wrong and that next time we should expect to pay the extra $2 charge
? Should you not get your menu updated if you truly should be charging more?
Poorly explained and handled
Also not to mention there was no sauce on the salmon but under rue vegetables which we pointed out, and yet still get an extra charge for the sauce that we had to inquire about not on your menu
She took the $2 off the bill but warned us for next time
Get your menu fixed and train your waitresses to better owning restaurants screw ups.

We enjoyed a night out for dinner before a show this weekend. The service was great, but our meals were only “ok”. We had the Cajun chicken sandwich and the bun was hard and tasteless, the fries were also cold.
Unfortunately not the best night at Earls.

Food was good as usual.
The disappointment was that we asked for a quiet table and we were put in the middle of a very busy restaurant. There were empty tables on the edges that would have been quieter.

Energetic isn’t what I would say about noise … it was LOUD. I work with hearing impaired clients and as someone with Normal hearing I can tell you it was so loud I couldn’t hear the person across from me well. It wasn’t the tons of people there it was the music that got louder as more people come in. FYI turning up musics when more people come makes it harder to hear. Plus it isn’t great to have to yell across the table.

Friendly staff, tasty food. It was not crowded when we were there…about 5:30 on a Friday evening. We were surprised but guessed it was the pandemic keeping people away. I had the Hunan Kung POW and they are now serving it in a pretty earthenware-looking bowl. Very nice.

I had lunch with a friend and it was great. The checking in process went smoothly and we were quickly seated. Our server was personable, friendly, funny, efficient and took very good care of our table. I have unfortunately forgotten her name but she was a very tall young lady. Thanks again for a great afternoon!

Our server was friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious. My 12 yr old grandson loved the steak and sushi combo. My husband had the ribs with the outstanding warm potato salad. We all had a taste , it was really great. I had the fettuccine Alfredo with prawns instead of chicken. Creamy and yummy.
Oh my the chocolate peanut butter cheesecake was a winner.

Earls on 16 is our go to… it has such great service and the food quality surpasses that of other earls locations in Calgary. Everything is always fresh and the service is consistent. They have an amazing group of people working the front and the kitchen never disappoints!
