So we booked our tables and came 10 mins early for check-in & were told we would get our tables in 5 mjns - but we had to wait for additional 10 mins to get our tables. We could also see there were many tables empty for 2 people but they just delayed. Hope this is optimized next time - if not then whats the point of making a reservation. Additionally, the noise level was really high.

The constant checking of a stamp when leaving the table and walking past the patio was annoying.

Great Restaurant, with a great atmosphere. The food is a little overpriced, for the quality but then it is in the Back Bay of Boston.

They should have warned us they were not serving alcohol to out of state IDs when we made the reservation. The manager and waiter were rude when dealing with this. Then, as we were grabbing the check to go to another establishment that would serve us, I take a sip of water only to discover a FINGER NAIL in the cup that ended up in my mouth. No, it was not mine! Never going back.

Nice place for lunch with diverse menu. Easy access in the Prudential with plenty of parking. The burger was good. The clam chowder was a bit different with tomatoes and celery and on the thin side. Service was great. Would definitely go back again.

I love Earl’s and was excited to show it to my friend from out of town. We finally got a booking and when we sat down we were informed they were only accepting passports and MA IDs. It’s unfortunate to inform us this as we sit down and not earlier, it really dampened the experience. Our server was still really great and food was good as always.

The food was decent, not blockbuster. The place does have a really nice feel to it, it was quite busy on a Sunday brunch, food arrived in a reasonable amount of time and was hot. The waitress was professional and friendly , just needed to lay back on the up-selling, she started to come across as desperate, having worked in many restaurants I got the impression there may have been some type of up-selling contest going on. Otherwise a decent place for a Sunday brunch, we will return, maybe for dinner or some after work drinks.

The have since changed their happy hour brunch menu, which makes it a little less fun to be able to go there on the weekends for some "happy hour brunch" as the prices have raised!

Our server was very pushy and asked us to “clear out” mid conversation. I understand that it was a busy night and they wanted a high turnover but the way she phrased it was a little uncomfortable

Lunch meeting- Earls is a great choice for that in my view. Wide menu options and good service. Wait staff was quick and smiling. No bad options on the menu although not really sure anything jumps out as amazing- but was just a business lunch so was not really looking for that. It’s a go- to in back bay and if you are around prudential center a good option lunch or dinner.

Service was, unlike past visits to the bar area, abysmal. We were seated early, and were grateful for that. However, it took nearly 15 minutes for our server to actually greet us after being seated. A neighboring server came up to us after about 10 minutes, asking us if we’d been helped yet, which suggested to us that we’d simply been forgotten about. We received minimal attention from our server— little past “what would you like?” and only being asked “still or sparkling?” for water. We were surprised to find a $7 bottled water sitting in front of us. We ordered drinks and food at the same time, received our food, and didn’t see our server again until the check arrived... without even so much as a short “thank you for coming”. Disappointing experience, but great brunch food.

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 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.

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
