I come to Earls regularly and always find the staff and service excellent. They are very friendly and professional in their demeanour and are always more than helpful. Earls is my favourite place to visit for happy hour or for dinner.

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.

We go every Tuesday because bottles of wine are half price and because Earls is near us and also it is a lovely spot. The servers know us and we get excellent service. I am on a diet and there are a few really good choices for me.

Was great for a Monday night. A would say it could have been a bit cleaner but understandable as we came the last 2 hours of service and it was relatively busy. Our server had about 8 tables including us and most were 4 tops.

Thank you again for a really great experience. What we appreciate is the consistency of the high level of service and the quality of ingredients and presentation of the food.
We were taken care of by Miki who is so personable and bouncy, full of life. A great personality and very attentive to detail. Adrian, who was present at our last visit, remembered us as he passed our table. We're looking forward to our next visit, which will be very soon!

Location, ambiance and food quality is fantastic but what really stands out at this early location is the service. Our server Sarah was amazing in her ability to be perfectly attentive, offer fun banter, suggest great dishes and add to an overall fun and wonderful dining experience. Sarah along with management and other servers have certainly set the bar at a height other restaurants only dream of reaching!

Thank you all fir your ongoing efforts in offering amazing dining experiences!

Waited half an hour to be served.
Had to grab another table’s server for assistance. Our server brought the check without asking if we wanted to order anything else. Ordered dessert and coffee, told server I was going to re-park the car and come back leaving my friend at the table. I returned to a Luke warm coffee at the table, I had to ask for a new one. Was disappointed at lack of attention and it wasn’t even busy.

The sea bass and everything we ate was very tasty. (My Dad ordered steak.) However for $38 I have was expecting my sea bass to be a more filling meal. The menu said it came with quinoa and I would be surprised if there was even a full tablespoon on my plate. I ordered bread partway through this dish to sop up the miso broth, which was a great combination. However I don’t think you should have to order bread to feel full with a main. In my opinion, there should be enough quinoa served with this dish to A- absorb more of the delicious broth and B - ensure the meal is substantial enough.

Otherwise, it was a lovely dining experience. Pleasant servers and a beautiful view.

First of all, thank you for such a great experience. This is our favourite Earl's location (Earl's Ambleside in West Vancouver) and it is beautifully situated. The staff are always friendly and professional, without being pretentious. It doesn't matter what one orders, it will always be perfect. We especially enjoyed our conversation with Adrian who wasn't our server, but he was everywhere helping out. We will be back again, and very soon!

We’ve been to this restaurant a few times and have been very satisfied with the food but this time I didn’t enjoy my burger at all. There were two beef patties which is one too many. The meat had a strange after taste. It was very hard to eat because it was so big and when I picked it up it was all greasy on the bottom. The bacon wasn’t cooked enough either. I would never order it again. My husband’s pasta was delicious and we also enjoyed the calamari appetizer that we shared.
