Leisurely lunch on the Friday afternoon of a long weekend. Reserved with Open Table and adjusted the time of the reservation with the assistance of the wonderful Earls staff and hostesses. We enjoyed excellent food and service. The service was superb - extremely attentive.

Hi I am a regular and this spot is always good to come enjoy drinks and food. I know there’s lots of challenges in the industry as a result of the pandemic. However there is a lack of knowledge and professionalism amongst the newer and younger staff. The consistency of the food and drink quality are sub par.
I ordered 2 white sangrias. They both were different portions and not the same. 1 contained fruit the other did not. I also had someone’s lipstick mark on my glass. The Kung Pao I ordered was yummy however twice the size it normally is. The noodles were over flowing. I ordered a Sundae and it took 20 min and when I got it, it was melted. I asked our server 2 questions in regards to the menu and she couldn’t answer either. The service was also very slow as the staff seemed to be “talking” more than being aware of the tables needing service. Again I am a loyal customer and love Earls. I just wanted to let you know of my latest experience. Thank you.

Excellent water front location with high ceilings and patio spaces. Clean good food. We were sharing three dishes between the two of us. Restaurant split everything beautifully without extra charge.

We 3 female friends hadn’t seen each other for about a year & were very excited to have a leisurely, chatty evening. Our server realized our wishes , patiently popped back to the table to take our drink orders, then finally we were ready to order & enjoy our meal, adding more drinks & finishing off with coffees . She also ensured our ice water jugs were refilled ! We were so happy not to be rushed & shooed out , & even after paying our bills were told we could continue chatting for as long as we wanted. All in all a very delightful evening with good food choices.

Loved our lunch and had a fantastic greeting and wonderful waitress that answered all of our questions regarding the menu and more. Very patient and friendly.

We in fact felt like a "pitcher" of Sangria, and asked if the bar tender could mix us a rose version Sangria. It was fantastic.....only recommendation....to the bar tender..is far less ICE in the pitcher. We filled two water glasses of the "extra" ice cubes that would have watered down the Sangria....as seniors...we know a good Sangria and too much ice..waters the "pitcher" down.
The only other suggestion, is the new artichoke and crab appetizer should have more "crab" in it, if you are charging $ 18.00 for that starter dish.We wouldn't order it again if that doesn't change.
The other suggestion, is to lower your "by the glass prices" of wine...eg. by a few dollars, considering you do not offer wine in the 1/2 litre pricing, unless we missed that???Thus us opting to order the Sangria.
We are seniors, retired, and have dined out know great venues in this city. Your location, the extra outdoor seating and near the ocean is fabulous. We also are familiar with the Beach House, down the road a ways. We go there for Wine Wednesday as their bottles of wine are 50% off. Can't beat that pricing.....and I believe you may have that offering on a day as well. Is it Tuesday? Good luck for your summer dining, and hope our feedback is helpful.We do plan to return and re order the Sangria...with much less ice!
Cheers!
PS...to the Bar Tender...GREAT JOB...loved the fresh GRAPEFRUIT!

Would be nice to have options for dairy free and coffee related drinks. Also disappointing that there is no brunch on at least fridays. The hostess' were a bit rude to me when we first arrived nothing major just a bit off putting. My Alfredo pasta was very bland I couldn't complain at the time because I was just too hungry. Wasn't a terrible experience just a bit disappointing.

Excellent service all around. Love, love the decor and furniture.
Ordered 1 salmon and Caesar salad for both of us, as Mum doesn’t eat much, and the portions were very generous.
The hostesses and servers were just so friendly and efficient,
I’m plus the food was excellent ! Thank you Earls!

Had our anniversary meal at Earls @ Ambleside - absolutely loved it. Lots of Covid-19 protection in place (good!), hugely expanded patio, food & wine excellent, and a brand new desert, peanut butter chocolate cheese cake - none of this New York baked crap - absolutely to die for!!!
Would go there again for the cheese cake alone (but the rest is so good also).

Outstanding service by Emily, my server, and by the Lady Manager as there was a glitch with the iPad ordering process and it took 45 Minutes for my steak. Both kept very cool and provided amazing and effective background information. The meal was taken care of and I tipped 20% as it should for great service.

We arrived about 20 mins ahead of our reservation and inquired about our table. The table was already set aside but in a very shady and cool area. We asked about changing the table to a sunnier spot and the hostess was very happy to arrange that, so we really appreciated this. Our server, Jesse O. was quick to greet us and arrange for drinks and water. He was friendly and helpful with suggestions. I tried the new Mother Earth Bowl, which I found very tasty, and had many different textures going on. At first, the almond quinoa crumble was almost gritty in texture, like sand, but as it soaked up the dressing, it was much more pleasing. My son ordered the Tuna Poke, which is his personal favourite, and such a visual delight as well as fresh and light tasting. My husband ordered the Kung Pao Noodle bowl and really enjoyed it and appreciated the fact that you can dial up or down on the chili pepper factor. Earl's Ambleside has so much going for it: Location, Menu options, great service, plenty of free parking nearby. With thanks and appreciation, Chuck, Shirley & Jeffrey

We had a nice lunch on the patio on a sunny day. The steak/frites combo was very good, as was the Thai prawn bowl and seafood chowder. The prawns in the tostadas were a little tasteless. The service was attentive and prompt.

It was busy and cold when out of the sun or too far from heaters. First table was in a very poor location but when I asked to be moved they were very accommodating. Staff was very calm even though many people complaining about tables that were in cold areas. I would recommend moving heaters to be more strategic for tables not well situated

We ate outside on the patio. The first table we were seated at had a lovely view but in direct sunlight and way too bright. We were moved to a shaded table quickly and pleasantly. It was my daughter’s birthday and they happily added candles to the cheesecake we ordered and it was presented beautifully with a happy birthday written in chocolate sauce.
Generally lovely staff and nice atmosphere. The food was exactly what you would expect from Earls.
