Terrible service, we were seated by the door, asked to change as it was freezing were told no and then watched three other parties be seating within the next ten minutes. Then no one served us and we waiting another ten before asking to change. By the time we were finally moved it had been thrift minutes. No drink orders or anything were taken . When we finally got our found they gave me the wrong order ! Will not be back anytime soon. Very disappointing and cost was over 100$ for two people. I expected more...

We appreciated the waitress’s splitting our dessert into three sections. Good tuna poke bowls.

Earls at Ambleside is a nice place for a meal and kick back atmosphere. It is safe (COVID) and has an outside heated patio. the meal was OK, nothing spectacular but tasty and the service was good.

Very average. Half price wine on Tuesday not a great deal as regular wine prices are way over the top!

I have always loved the food at Earl's. I must say the one in West Van Ambleside stands out from the rest by far. It's my favourite restaurant of all in the Lower Mainland. The only place where the Chef knows how to prepare vegan dishes with great flavour and keep it healthy. (I have not found the same quality at other Earl's cafes). You make it possible for us vegans to dine at a stylish place too. I have only had the quinoa bowls mainly, but I noticed that your vegan menu is expanding. Thank you for that and also for being able to replaced fried with grilled. I look forward to trying the rest of your vegan dishes. Chef has impeccable taste.

Wonderful ambiance and food and service, except for the coffee that was cold and tasted horrible. On the positive, the manager (I assume she was) came by to ask what was wrong with the coffee since I had only had a sip and had asked our server to please replace it with tea, a really customer-oriented approach. We are definitely coming back!

My experience was great. Sarah and Hannah were both good; Sarah was my server and Hannah was assisting her. I order the Daily Ritual 6oz steak and it was cooked to perfection

Food was great and the host was very gongenial, and interested in our opinion of our lunch.
The view is amazing the perfect location. Chicken karaage is really good and would hope it goes to the menu in Burnaby! Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

Ordered Steak and Lobster - they were out of lobster and offered 8 scallops as a replacement. I received 8 pieces of scallop which were sliced coins and likely added up to only 2 or 3 whole scallops. My steak was overcooked when I ordered rare and had not been properly trimmed. The grill marks were charred rather than browned.

The appies were lovely but the cheese dip was quite salty. Martinis were excellent.

Fun Happy Hour with a friend!! First thing we noticed was Covid 19 protocols in effect throughout the restaurant - hand sanitizer, table separation, masks everywhere and a personal reminder from our server to wear our masks any time we left our table. Right On!!! Food was great and the mood throughout the restaurant was cheerful and service was friendly and efficient. A nice break during the pandemic.

Lovely location close to the beach with ocean snd city views. Food was good, nicely prepared and fresh. Wine on Tuesday is 50%off per bottle. We sampled a lovely California red to accompany our steak and frites, which was delicious. Very friendly, professional and personable waiter who was amply rewarded with a very generous tip.

Really great service! Friendly staff!! Different staff pitch in to help each other, whether our table needed extra sauce, more water etc! The ambience is beautiful!!! Steps from the boardwalk and a really calm yet aesthetic vibe.

The steak was too tough( sirloin) no leroy’s ribs( our favourite) and a number of folks were walking around without their masks on....coming out of tables that definitely did not look like they all lived in the same household...Did not make for a perfect evening..

I'm allergic to garlic, I found that almost everything has garlic in it. The server was very pleasant and helpful, I was able to get a meal that I could consume, but something I could have easily cooked at home without the expense. Very sad you have to put garlic in practically everything, even the mashed potatoes. Don't you ever consider that that is an allergy? There are many people who have this allergy.

The experience was good as it was our first one 'out to dinner' since March 2020. We felt safe, food was great (although pricey).
