We at Earls King street have moved to a reservations only policy to help us stagger guest arrival times and to maximize bookings with a new mandated 50% patio only capacity. We will be welcoming a maximum of three parties of guests every 15 minutes. Reservations are set for 2 hour seatings and we have allowed 15 minutes between reservations to sanitize the tables and settings.Reservations booked after 11pm do not have a time limit. Reservations also give us the ability to track who has been in the restaurant, and provide a crucial set of contacts in the unlikely event of any exposure to COVID-19. A maximum group size of 6 guests. Amidst all of these changes, our core values remain the same.We are fully committed to “To be the safest place to Eat, Drink and Work in North America.” Above all, we are committed to ensuring an outstanding dining experience for each and every one of our guests!Looking forward to welcoming you back to Earls King Street!

The Covid protocols were clearly evident and adhered to. Service was very prompt and received a gracious tip as a result for excellence.

Service was quite slow and we were seated in the sun when it was 42 degrees outside. Totally recognize that number of tables are limited now but many ppl came aft us that were either moved after they asked (we did too) or were placed in a shaded spot altogether.

The staff handled physical distancing very well. Both my wife and I felt comfortable with the distancing between tables and the staff PPE. We saw the cleaning staff on multiple occasions cleaning after guests left. I would highly recomment the Patio at Earls Kitchen for anyone looking to go out during Covid-19!!!

Pretty good considering the circumstances. Staff and food was great. Some other guests were loud and annoying.

Though I really was hoping to have dining section for this reservation, I understand the need to limit sections during this time. Service, as always, was excellent and food delicious.

Earl’s was very disappointing on Thursday. This is the first time since I’ve an Open Table member that a restaurant’s food was not great. It was edible..that’s all. My friend can’t eat spicy food so there were very few choices for her. Also it was very noisy so it was difficult to conduct a conversation without asking each other to repeat what was just said. My friend wanted ice cream for dessert but the only choices were cheesecake and chocolate cake, neither of which she likes. Earl’s has certainly gone downhill in the last couple of years. I won’t be back.

Our server and the food was great. Had i known they would give us the high seats i would never book this venue for a birthday celebration. The lady at the reception also seemed very insensitive to our requests and did not give us a proper table / couch although there were so many empty tables available. They gave us like 2 high stools in the middle area and the idea of having a birthday celebration celebration over there was defeated

Dining room wasn't open, and we were seated in the bar area. It was extremely difficult to carry on a conversation as it was so loud. Server got my order wrong, but once the correct meal arrived it was good.
Not up to the usual standard.

Very noisy. Hard to have a conversation.

Service was okay, but not as good as past visits.

Being from out of town, we wanted to try Earl's in Toronto because we had an outstanding experience at Earl's in Regina, Saskatchewan. Everything was Impeccable - from the food to the service to the cleanliness! The attentiveness given to us by the servers and dining manager far exceeded our expectations of what we're used to when dining out. At their own discretion, they placed us in a private area which was a real treat and very appreciated! And to end off the evening, we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know our server and dining manager because of their personal connections in our hometown! We highly recommend Earl's for your next and repeated dining experiences! Overall, our experience was outstanding!

We went on a Saturday evening, got a reservation a few hours before. I had Cajun salmon which was pretty good although the rice was a bit hard. Overall a pretty good experience, I’d recommend.

Earls has varied their menu even more. There are lots of unusual salads and many choices one can make. The new Reno makes the place brighter and lighter too.

Earl's is a great place to go for a lunch meeting, group get-together, or a catch-up dinner with friends. The menu is excellent and the staff goes out of their way to be accommodating. The reno's to the dining area are fantastic.

Had reservations for a pre-theatre dinner. Service was quick and friendly and the food was good. My friend is vegetarian and appreciated the selection available, while I like the variety. Not my first visit and won't be my last.

I had a reaction to the clam chowder which was unfortunate. Spent most of my lunch in the bathroom :-(
Otherwise everything else was great! The service was perfect.
Earls's usually never dissapoints :-)

INCREDIBLE FOOD AND SERVICE. I’m a Earls fan from Edmonton, however the food has moved up a level in quality and flavour. Elevated pub eats as they say, but so much more.

Requested standard seating. Despite numerous tables being available, the hostess tried to seat us at a hightop table. When we asked for a table nearby she stated that those are held for disabled customers. I've never heard such an explanation! And why ask for our preference when booking??

Our server Eric was very attentive and nice!
Service was on point, nice music and atmosphere.
We went on a Sunday night so it was really quiet in the dining room, but we didn’t mind.
Food was so good as always.
Our favourite dishes are the calamari, chilli chicken and scallop risotto.
It was our second time there and we’ll be back!

It was loud. Service slow. Appetizer chilli chicken and wonton tasted like it was 2 days old. Chicken in the batter on this appy was over done and hard to eat. Wrong entree was brought to table. Waitress didn’t understand why until she checked and realized she entered the wrong entree in the system. She offered to exchange it for right item but other 3 guests had their entrees and by the time it would take to get the correct food item the other guests would be finished. When it came to the 2 bills for our table they were incorrect and then we had to find the waitress to have them corrected which she did. Anyone reading this check your itemized bill carefully. Would not recommend this Earls location which is unfortunate as have had many meals at other Earl locations across Canada and have all been good

We started with a couple of cocktails to enjoy with an appetizer. The crab and prawn gyoza appetizer was phenomenal! Plenty to share with 2 or 3 people. We were not rushed to order everything at once. Entrees were delicious and serving size was more than adequate. A very pleasant experience before going to the theatre!
