The food was excellent, however a little loud as it was extremely busy. The server as a result was also busy and as a result a little slower than I would have hoped. But overall a great experience and will definitely be back.

The atmosphere was great, and the food was even better. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu. The food is a little pricey, but worth it!

The food overall was much better this time than last week on 12/28/19. We had the brunch menu so it was a different type of food than last time. Overall, the brunch menu on Sundays until 3:00pm is quite good and reasonably priced.

We ordered fried chicken sliders as an appetizer - they were awful. The meat inside was pink and chewy - very uncooked. We sent them back and they brought us new ones that were equally under cooked. It made me sick to my stomach that I lost my appetite. We then got a burger and the avocado super smash which were good not great. I will say our waitress was amazing and very nice throughout the whole problem.

Great customer service. The kitchen got my order wrong. Within minutes the manager came over to Apologize and there was a new meal at my table almost immediately. The food was very good.

We had a small group of 5 for New Year’s Eve and it was perfect. For a major holiday and with the size of our group the bill was very reasonable and the food and drinks were great. I would definitely recommend this place for groups.

We have visited Earl’s in Whistler Canada many times and it is our favourite restaurant there. We had very high hopes for Earl’s in Boston and were not disappointed. Their BBQ ribs with warm potato salad and coleslaw were equally as good and this dining experience was the best of our holiday in Boston

This is a really chic restaurant. They have a heated patio during the winter and it was great. The drinks are ok, the food was not impressive and the service was pleasant. Overall it's a fun place to have drinks with friends.

This was the 4th time at this restaurant and my least favorite of the 4. Previously, the food very good, but this time it was fair at best. The portions seem to be getting smaller for the same price (sea bass and salmon) and the clam chowder should not be called "clam chowder" as there are little claims, a lot of carrots and celery as a filler and a watery broth and not much taste. My wife's burger for $16 was blah but my youngest son loves the place as he is a Vegan and Earl's has an extensive Vegan menu. Overall the menu is varied enough that most people will find something they will like.

Service was phenomenal and the food as usual did not disappoint. Value, especially for the bottle of wine we ordered was extremely good as well. Wish there were more Earl’s in the U.S.

Overall it was an enjoyable dinner with a friend, but the service was a bit subpar and the food overpriced. Good ambiance though and great location. Ordered the roasted cauliflower and chicken salad with extra chicken. The portion of chicken that came as extra was somewhat laughable to be charged an extra $5 for an already overpriced salad. The waitress came over and asked how the food was before my friend and I could take a bite. She then came over again maybe 15 times which was annoying since she would just interrupt the conversation to ask if the salad was still good. We still wanted to stay and chat after our food since we had some time before a show we were going to so we ordered coffee and tea, and the tea kettle was brought without a mug. This wouldn’t have been a big deal at all, but when we asked the waitress for the mug she rolled her eyes at my friend and seemed annoyed that we were asking for the mug. This dinner would’ve probably been better if it had been served without the waitress’ attitude.

Mixed. But we still feel good about the place. Service was excellent. Food was ok. Cool poached eggs, Luke warm coffee, and mashed (not sliced) avocado are a turnoff. But the location near Hynes Convention Center is convenient and the restaurant is relatively quiet.

We’ve been here for dinners and events a few times so thought the brunch would be excellent. The food and service took forever and by the time we got our food everything was cold. No one should be eating cold fries!!!Excellent vibe and decor though, especially outside which was decked out for the holidays.

Our food was freezing cold. We were really looking forward to a great brunch, as we are from out of town. Disappointed because there are so many better great food options in Boston.
