Earls Kitchen + Bar - Kamloops
New to the area. Frequented a few times in the last couple of weeks and the food and service were fantastic. Thanks to Cecilia and Gabby for making us feel welcomed.
My fiancé and I were looking to head out for dinner so we decided on one of our favorite spots. Earls! I had requested a table at the back of the restaurant, but when we arrived the hostess brought us to the enclosed patio and sat us next to the outside door. After a few minutes we realized it was uncomfortably cool so we asked if we could move. Our server, Elena, was gracious and proceeded to bring us to a comfy booth. Much better.
Normally we get an appetizer or two but we're both trying to "watch it". I did have a Rhino dark lager which was really nice and my fiancé enjoyed her Rose sangria.
I chose the 8oz sirloin as my entree and my fiancé had the salmon with caper and dill sauce. My steak ordered medium rare was cooked to perfection and very tasty. I also appreciated being able to sub penne Alfredo for the mashed potato. The asparagus was also a nice accompaniment. The salmon entrée was also terrific and again cooked to perfection. We were at Terra a couple months prior and they severely overcooked the salmon. Although my fiancé was hesitant to order salmon after her last experience, she was so glad she did. I may have asked for a few bites off her plate. It was that good.
Our server Elena, was friendly, professional, and attentive. Glad we can always count on Earls for a great Date Night. Food and service is consistently above par.
Love Earls menu. Have never had a bad meal. I do not love the noise level.
Food was good. Came pretty quick. Ceaser salad was very good. Service was excellent.
When Valentines Day falls on Friday, Earl's delivers!
Other than a 25 minute wait for our reserved table and very noisy, it was great. Service and food was top notch
I asked earls to put a rose on the table with a note which was not there. That was the only downfall. I guess they forgot but it was thing I really wanted there so for the next time I would like that the staff remembers stuff like that.
We chose earls on January 16 because we thought we would give it a shot as we don’t normally go there because of certain issues. One , it being so noisy in the past and it’s even louder now when it’s a full house. I couldn’t even hear the people across the table from me.
Two, the service in the past not being very good.. This time it was ok at best . Although she didn’t mention any specials such as happy hour so we all just ordered water . She refilled our waters , brought us ketchup and preset our table. But when it came to the paying, that was another story. My husband paid and I always like to leave the tip in cash. So she was chatting away while my husband paid on the machine and when she looked at the receipt with no tip her talking stopped and she was not happy. Her demeanor changed rapidly. So she ripped the receipt off the machine and slapped it on the table and walked over to the other people paying. That is how I base my tipping. If she acted the way she did she will not get a very good tip if any but if she continues to be friendly like nothing happened then she will get a great tip. I always wait til the server walks away to leave it on the table to see how they act.
Overall it was an ok experience but wouldn’t say I would go back often.
Earls is a very professional and delightful restaurant. I would always recommend people to eat there. Service and food is outstanding.
A very nice evening with husband & daughter. We were in the fireplace room which was quiet but certainly needs updating.
It was very good but busy so the service was slow. Slower service than usual.
This was a New Years Eve dinner. The restaurant was packed and lined up at 5:30pm but lots of staff kept everything on track. Service was excellent as was the food. Ambience suffered a bit due to the occasion but overall great experience.
New Year’s Eve dinner celebration with family.
Great spot for a lunch get together with friends.
Every time I end my experience at this Earls, I'm reminded why I rarely dine here. Horrible service! Every time!
This time, at arrival, I told the hostess we had a reservation, gave her my name and said a party of 3. The screen right in fronr of her also showed this info. She walked us (without menus) into the unclosed patio area, pointed to a table and said "there you go". I looked at her and questioned what she meant (we weren't at any table) she told us to go "over there". Ah, over where? When it was clear that she believed we were a part of another table, I corrected her. She walked back to the front door without a word. We followed, and once there, she began to talk to another party. We stood there, waiting, for multiple minutes with no one inquiring if we needed anything. Finally I asked if we could please be helped. With an eye roll from another hostess, we were finally led to our table. When our server approached our table, she asked my daughter how school was that day. This was December 27th. A 6 yr old had to remind her there isnt scholl this time of year. The food was mediocre. Service was sufficient, however never a smile or even courteous fake face.
The staff is pretty, but unbearably dull and not so bright! Maybe focus less on the pretty when hiring, Earls Kamloops.
Always great at Earls!! Yummy Vegan Food :)) super nice server!
We celebrated our office Administrator's 30th birthday. Food and atmosphere was fabulous
Food was served hot with the steak cooked to perfection.
Service was prompt, efficient, and unobtrusive.
Dessert was decadent, as it should be.
It was really nice but really really loud
Reservation was for 5:15 pm. Called me to say to arrive a bit early so we arrived at 5 pm but we were finally seated close to 5:30 pm. What’s the point making a reservation?
Service was excellent, thank you Gabby!!
Thoroughly enjoyed our food. Able to have a conversation without raising our voices and the staff were friendly and helpful
For our small family gathering the hostess was very kind and the girls who served us were awesome . Thank you so much for everything my mom would have been very happy with everything. She is now at peace.🥰
Our waitress was a delight. Well informed, personable and patient. I loved the food and drinks she recommended. Also loved the wide array of international food choices. Wish we had Earl's in Ottawa!
The covered patio was selected as it is a bit quieter. Service and food were good, as Earls's is usually.
The food and service was very good. The only thing we did not like was the restaurant is extremely noisy and very difficult to carry on a conversation otherwise we enjoyed ourselves.
I had a steak. The 8 oz. One and I am sure I got about 4oz steak and about a dozen skinny fries. My husband took my piece of bread because I think there was garlic in it which my stomach cant absorb it. He was shocked at how little I had. My birthday dinner was a flopp. The others dinner was not bad. Good waitress
We have had such great experiences at Earl's. It is our go to place for celebrations and date nights. The menu is varied and reasonable and staff attentive without being annoying!! We highly recommend this reataurant. 😊
Had a great dinner out. Looking forward to going again.
I love earls, this is the first time I’ve ever had anything negative to say. I brought my mom for her 50th surprise birthday, and it was really upsetting. The hostess asked us when we got to the door if it was for the 50th surprise birthday party, so my mom knew exactly what was happening. I was also told that the restaurant doesn’t do reservations, which I found to be strange when we got there and we did in fact have a table for ten reserved. The food as always was incredible at least.
The food was excellent all the meals were prepared to perfection and the server was phenomenal her knowledge of the menu amazing.
Birthday for the twins
The food is excellent the service was great but the place is way too loud and the seating is not very comfortable unless you get to sit in the covered patio area which was not an option for the reservation. I would still recommend to a friend because of how good the food is though.
We all had a great experience, the food sand services was great .
My husband and I went to meet with some relatives and were feeling a bit tired when we left home but once we were seated and connecting with everyone there we both felt energized! Our relatives tried a new menu item each and I did as well...everyone loved what they had and our waiter, Dario was very attentive to us and did a wonderful job taking care of us!! It was a wonderful visit and felt very well taken care of!!
It was our best "Earl's" experience yet. We had a booth where we could actually hear each other in conversation! The steaks were perfect!
We had made our reservation ahead of time for 5:45 and I had written in it that we had 3 children and 2 adults. We arrived at 5:40 and they checked us in and we were informed it shouldn’t be too long. We waited standing in the doorway for til 6:00, 20 minutes, I finally asked if something had happened with our reservation. The hostess told me they were just waiting for a table of five to open up and didn’t have a time available. I told her we can squish at a space meant for four. We waited close to another ten minutes, thankfully a spot on the bench had opened up so the kids could sit. We thought the wait would be worth the food, and the kids foods was great and our appetizers were nice, the chilli chicken, but our mains were mediocre at best. My chicken was so dry that I only ended up eating half of it, and my husbands burger did not impress. I was drinking the Prosecco and when a server had dropped off our food at asked if we needed anything else I had barely gotten the word “Yes” out before she turned and walked away without any eye contact. Our server himself was quite nice and for how the restaurant is run did a nice job. But overall all the wait for mediocre food, the extremely loud and harried servers who don’t pay attention and their reservation system that someone includes just “waiting for a table to open” we definitely won’t be returning.
Good server salmon and rice dish was fantastic.
