Such a lovely place to have brunch! My group had reservations and we were running 20 minutes late, so we called to give them a heads up and they had a table ready for us despite being late. Our server, Julie, was phenomenal! There is a two hour time limit for bottomless mimosas/brunch and our server gave us our check well before our two hour time limit so that was a little disappointing but regardless, excellent service and food.

I am Canadian and this was a little slice of home heaven. The food was AMAZING. Great music and friendly enough for our children to join. Will be back for sure.

Overall food is really good, but I wish the kitchen could figure out how to prepare the bread they use under their eggs benedict so that it wasn't so hard to cut. Have had to ask for steak knife several times. Great environment, but don't really need the music quite so loud!

Lexy was our server and she was outstanding! My boyfriend and I are both in the restaurant industry so we appreciate good service when we get it. She was attentive, continuously checking in to offer us another drink, loved that she split our steak Frits for us because we told her we were going to share it. Loved her attention to detail and her positive attitude. She was completely genuine and made us feel very welcome. We can’t wait to come back again! Thank you Lexy, we appreciate your efforts to make us feel comfortable and welcome!

Earl’s continues to be an outstanding dining experience, even in the midst of a pandemic. The staff is fantastic, including the hostess named Morgan who makes us feel comfortable and safe every time. Tanya (the manager) is a total professional and has cultivated a world class team. See you again soon!

We made reservations and we had an infant with us and they were very accommodating. They practiced social distancing which was a major plus since we had a child with us that can’t wear a mask. The food and drinks were amazing! Our server, Mel was super nice and took good care of us. Our appetizers came out at that same time as our meals, but they were apologetic for the kitchen mix-up. Overall, we all had a great experience and will definitely be back.

The restaurant has a great especially for outdoor dining in the era of Covid. They’re set up perfectly even for colder weather as they have umbrellas with heat lamps and glass “fence” as a wind breaker
Food was amazing and the drink list is good as well

Our waitress was not the best. She was friendly but perhaps having a bad day.

We ordered shared sushi roll with chips & guac, had to ask for small plates and soy sauce. She brought everything out in pieces and only a small tin with soy sauce not the actual bottle

We ordered shared apps to have Before our mains, everything came out at once which is dissapointing when it’s raw fish sitting in hot sun.
Then she disappeared for a long time, never had the opportunity to order more drinks

I’ll return for the food and hope to not get the same waitress....

Overall we live close to earls so we tend to go, the food is hit or miss. The spinach dip has had stale chips 2 x in 1 month. The cost is expensive at times for stale, but the atmosphere is nice.

My friends and I were searching for a halal steak place in Lincoln Park. This place serves halal meat from Creekstone. You can also let them know about it in advance to not include any pork or alcohol related ingredient. Unfortunately, the mushroom sauce we got had bacon strips in it. The manager and crew were really apologetic and waived off the price of the steaks from the bill as well. We appreciated the gesture. Had it not happened, the whole experience would have been amazing. Steak was perfect along with other food that my friends got. Will visit again.
