Food was good, fried calamari and chicken wountons were delicious.
Disappointed only because the first thing I ordered, Moscow mule drink, was a waste of money! Tasted like water and lime...

Earl’s provides a consistent level of great food and great service. The menu has a nice variety and the food is good. There were six of us in our party and everyone was happy. It was a Saturday night so the place was packed(make a reservation) so the noise level was pretty high. We had a banquet in the bar area so I’m sure that contributed to the noise level. I have been in the other side of the restaurant with my family and it was much quieter. I’ve also eaten at the bar before with just my husband and we had a great time. They have awesome cocktails.

My only issue was the noise level. It was difficult to carry on normal tone conversation with dinner mates without shouting and/or repeating what I said. Otherwise, it's at a great location and good food.

Food was amazing. Had the steak and lobster with no regrets. Service was timely and no "how is everything?" 50 times a meal. Only problem I had was the table we got was right by this airvent near the window which was very drafty and one side was not secure so my foot almost went right through.

Nice decor but the park bench seatings are uncomfortable and have no coat hangers.

Food is top notch and of great qaulity, however the service is very slow. Took 50 minutes to get the food out and the server didn't come around to refill our water even once.

Food was good. One person had an issue with thier steak which was re-cooked without charge (awesome!). We were asked if we were celebrating a special occasion and we said two birthdays and a going away party but this was not recognized so I'm not sure why they bothered to ask. Also a few people who do not normally go to downtown restaurants were shocked by the price of a glass of wine. I should hae taken them on Wednesday when it's half price bottles but we evened out by buying a few bottles!

I have been to this location a couple of times, now and would highly recommend it. The food is tasty, beautifully presented and the service quick. We were going to theatre afterwards and this gave us a very wonderful start for an afternoon of enjoyment. Quiet conversation was not possible though. The restaurant is very noisy. In spite of the noise, I know I will be back and I have already recommended this location to friends.

I had dinner with my two adult children and my sister after seeing the Saturday matinee of Ain't Too Proud. We thoroughly enjoyed the dinner. Everyone was happy with their menu choice. The service was helpful and professional. The bar was accommodating in making me a whiskey sour with Jack Daniels instead of rye and the two people who opted for wine with their meal had no complaints.

Love the Tuesday night half price bottle of wine perk. Also like on the same night that sushi rolls are 3.00 off. We always try to go on a Tuesday for these reasons.

Server was nice but not very efficient. We ordered pan bread which we never received. The server didn't recall that we had ordered the bread. When our meals were brought we asked about the bread and he said "oh, didn't you get it?" Well, who else would bring it to us other than him?? Asked for extra au jus for braised ribs and was halfway through the meal before it was received. Asked for glass of ice and server walked by our table 4 times after our request before actually bringing to us.

The clam chowder was really good, the shrimp appetizer did not have enough pineapple flavour, the salad was so-so, the bread boring, the sweet potato fries were OK. Overall too expensive for what we got.
