I went for lunch and its been a while, I was disappointed there were no sandwiches. You used to have a chicken or turkey, don't recall which, with apples and cheese. There were not enough "lite" lunch type options other than salad. But I love Earl's and the patio on King St. in particular.

Average food and drink at best . Nothing exciting and not living up to expectations . Nothing horrible either but I would not spend money there given the many alternatives

We enjoyed a terrific dinner before our TIFF movie. We sat on the patio that was lovely and airy. The welcome greeting, table service and dinner were exceptional. Thank you!

Soup of the day was great with general menu good selections.

Service was quite slow. It took average of 15-20 minutes each time for food to to be ordered, arrive and get the bill. Not the best for business lunch meetings in the open seating (a bit too loud to hear my companion across the table), maybe if in a booth or tucked in a corner would have been better for noise level.

We had an absolutely terrible experience and the tables all around us were experiencing the same experiences. This was so poor that they ending up only charging us for the 2 glasses of wine ($30 x2) and all 6 of our dinners were free, still would not recommend this restaurant at all. This was a special occasion 50th birthday during a weekend visiting Toronto, turned our terrible. I have never given a poor review or any review but I could not let this pass.

our server was young and lovely and friendly but not very attentive to us, we were waiting for her at various times during our meal
I love the Sticky Toffee Pudding, 2nd time I ordered this (and I don't order dessert very often)
fish tacos were good (I think I prefer a flakier fish rather than the meaty sword fish)
Drink was delicious (Dark and Stormy)
Atmosphere is lively and fun, it was during TIFF so was an excited vibe there

I had a salmon rice bowl entree and it was quite tasty. I thought it was a bit overpriced for the ingredients but I recognize that the location dictates food prices.
The biggest criticism I have about the restaurant is the noise. It's just too noisy, period. You simply can't have a conversation without raising your voice, and that gets tedious.
Anyway, it's handy to my office and the food's usually fine, so... that's that. Thanks very much.

After an initial issue with our reservation, we had an enjoyable meal. There was a good choice of menu with a few different items to choose from away from the usual burgers and steaks. The choice of beer was also good.

If you're looking for a place to have chat with friends and catch up - this isn't it! Way too noisy and very hard to hear the person beside you. Food was great as was the service but I won't go back.

Laura was such an awesome host. Honestly earls is like my wife's and I favorite place to go and host our friends and family. Also, they have an old fashioned that's off the menu, and they always make it on request for me.

One of the best spots in Toronto for any occasion!!

The waiter Kice was very nice though too busy he forgot some of our orders. Waiter was available but not present-we didn’t have a hunane connection. Though he seemed nice but we lacked rapport.
The ambience is great. Food was great. However, they put my friend’s take home food in foil. Not good.
Good for get togethers. It’s too loud for a date. I was there with a group of friends we didn’t mind the noise.
Need to work more on customer service. They didn’t acknowledge that I was there celebrating my birthday. A waitress told us she was too busy to take a picture of me and my friends.
Overall its ok if u looking to turn up after work or for drinks as a get together.

We really enjoyed our dining experience here. We had the shrimp appetizer and our friends had the shrimp and the bread appetizers. All of it was delicious. We then had the penne, the ribs, Cajun chicken sandwich and the fish tacos. Each of us enjoyed our chosen entree. There yam fries were also great. Service was quick and efficient. Will definitely return to this restaurant.

French fries were cold. Sent them back to the kitchen...came back to me cold again. My uncle had breakfast and did not receive bacon with his meal but others who ordered the same thing did receive bacon. Sloppy work by the kitchen staff for a Sunday noon hour.

Service was great. Good food selection on the menu. Food looked and tasted great. Good location with parking and theatres nearby. The location was clean and not too crowded or noisy while we were there from 5:30 to 7:45 pm on a Saturday. Would recommend to family or friends especially if attending a theatre nearby.
