The food was excellent. Service is great - we had a great time with family at the great restaurant. I highly recommend the salads and will be back.
Our server was fantastic, and the food was awesome!
Loved it! Food was amazing definitely going back again!
The wait time was good, used open table to get a reservation. Service was great from what we could tell, outside of our server. She was pretentious, rude, never smiled, snooty and never checked on us. With her standing there, I asked my mom if I could have her water, as mine was finished, the server kind of stood there, dropped off our appetizers and left. The day manager came by 5 mins later, filling water at the table next to us and making small talk. I asked him if he wouldn’t mind filling my glass and proceeded to tell him our server was the worst. He said Amber, I replied I guess cause she never told us her name, Barney spoke to us, made zero eye contact, rudely didn’t get our drink order, wrote nothing down and got almost everything wrong.
The day manger was fabulous!!!! He must have said something to her cuause she was slightly better. The food was tasty? Only wish she had brought the correct wings cause the buffalo was too hot.
I would recommend just make sure you don’t take Amber. The bar area was beautiful and everyone seemed happy except for Ambers customers but the manager Wesley was a class act and an asset to Earls. Way to go Wesley for making the customers your focus!!!
The Impossible burger and the other food my friends ordered were absolutely fantastic! Service was also great as hostesses checked in to see if we needed anything occasionally. Would definitely come back again with others.
The service was great and SARAH R. is amazing. She cane over and spoke to me because she remember me from a previous visit, remembered my order etc. She is so on point.
Excellent experience, across the board! Hostess didn't flinch when we needed to adjust the party size of our reservation last minute, waitress went above and beyond to accomodate the child we added on, and you can't find better food for brunch happy hour prices.
Food need some tweaks to go from good to great. Too much sauce on the teriyaki bowl. Fried chicken overly fried and needed more seasoning.
Amazing place! I love coming here! Ambience & everything is great! Cant wait to go again.
Our first dinner here was fantastic! We started off with some wonderful drinks - Strawberry Moscow Mule and Spanish Gin & Tonic - both very refreshing, along with the chicken tacos for an app which was full of bold yummy flavors. For dinner, I had the blackened cajun chicken with warm potato salad which was absolutely delicious. (Some of the best chicken I’ve ever had!) My boyfriend had the beef bibimbap which he said was great too. Overall - flavorful food and great service. Would definitely come back again. We’ve also been for brunch - and that was great too!
needs a larger kids menu, there was only 2 options, the chicken was not plain chicken but barbecue which was not noted on the menu
Easily my favorite spot in greater Boston. Fabulous drinks amazing food and a terrific ambiance!
It was so cold in the restaurant!
It was way to loud. With a party of 4 we could barely converse. I will never come again with more than 2 people. We thought the menu prices were good but drinks too expensive - not value for the price
Great steaks, quiet and friendly atmosphere in the afternoon
Great service by Danny. Brunch was delicious and atmosphere was fun and inviting. My friend found an egg shell in her avocado toast, yuck! Otherwise the meal was enjoyable.
An absolutely amazing experience, from the moment you walk into the restaurant. The service is by far the best I’ve experienced in a long time, the wait staff is outstanding, and the food selection phenomenal.
The location of the restaurant is fantastic, facing the Mystic River.
Perfect evening, I wish I could give it 10 stars!
When we checked in at 5, they asked us if we could be out by 7-7:30 for a large group. I said we would try, but honestly, we were meeting up with friends that we hadn't seen in a while, and if we're at a table spending money, I don't want to be rushed out. So 7:15 comes and we were winding down. The manager comes over and says, "So you were told that we needed this table when we seated you, you're now 15 minutes over. We're happy to move you to another table and buy you a round." Which was nice of them, but made it sound like we were really putting them out by lingering over dinner beyond two hours. So they moved us, and then no one sat at our vacated table until 8:45, and it was a couple, not a large party.
Once we were moved and had our comp round, no one came to check on us. It was just very odd. To make the evening even weirder, my husband's card was charged twice, and now we have to wait and see if the extra charge drops off or if we need to talk to them.
I always have a great time at Earl's. The food and ambience are great. The staff is great and very professional. Love the dining experience
Too loud for our party
Waiter was not on his game
It was our first time visiting Earl’s kitchen. Amal was our waitress and she was awesome not overbearing, gave us just enough attention. The menu was small with a variety of different food to chose from. The guacamole and chips were delicious. I had the rib and Cajun chicken combo with warm potato salad was amazing and my husbands burger was perfect! Our food came out promptly. We will be back soon!
Super loud. Basically lost my voice by the time I left. Had reservation for table of 5. Was put at a tiny horseshoe shaped table. Our knees were touching and the plates couldn’t even fit it was so tight. Took forever to get the waitstaff over. Had to ask a different server to find someone after 15 minutes waiting. Don’t think management is too concerned with getting repeat customers. They will do well based on location and the millennial bar crowd. Casual diners seem to be overlooked.
Nice atmosphere. Good service. Friendly staff. Will definitely return.
💜💜💜 the Salmon Zen Bowl, so delicious!
Waitress was very attentive but it took a long time for the food
Celebration of work accomplishment
We had a good time and truly enjoyed the appetizers and the main courses. However, the main reason for not giving all high marks was the truly excessive up-charge for the premium vodka. I’ve been to restaurants in many cities including New York City and never paid a 50% up-charge. I was quite surprised when I got the bill. I would have expected and certainly appreciated had the server told us when we ordered. Aside from that it was a good experience.
Great food. They even serve an Aperol Spritz. Loved it. Very nice inside.
Very good food .. Service was decent just very loud in the resteraunt
Great food, menu has lots of food options and something for everyone. The appetizers are all good, especially the ahi tuna with tortilla chips. Fresh and delicious.
Truffle fries are outstanding and the bowls are all tasty as well. Reasonably priced and the food is fresh and presented very nicely. For vegetarians, the quinoa salad is amazing and the impossible burger is as well.
Try the chicken kung pao also as well as the korean bimbap.
Love it at Earl's. Only issue is that ceilings are high and it can get noisy. Service can be a little slow sometimes when the place is packed but overall we love this place!
We had a party of 10 and the staff was very accommodating. Our waiter Matt was awesome!!! Very attentive, and always coming back to check in on us.
I like the variety in the menu. Vegetarians and meat lovers alike can be very happy.
Was good drinks ... the food wasn’t good
Great dinner!!! Excellent service! Shout out to our server Hoku! You rocked it!!
The server was outstanding and the cocktails were so delicious! Earl’s menu has a good variety offering something for everyone.
The ambiance has a great energy and is lively, the music is always pumping and upbeat. We love the booths. Additionally they have seating outside.
Food was surprisingly good. Service was fantastic. It was quite loud, though that did not bother my elderly parents! Enjoyed the Korean wings and bibimbap. Will return.
We always have a great experience here!
This was my 2nd time at Earl's. The brunch on Sunday is an excellent deal...$9 entrees. On our first visit our food was cold but Earl's management more than made up for it. This visit was excellent , food was good. There is a spice on the potatoes I didn't care...but that's me. Again, the food could have been hotter.
Our waitress was a little slow, never brought spoons for our coffee and didn't offer the dessert menu...but that's ok. Its a fun place to gather and have brunch!
Nice selection of items. Particularly helpful staff with food allergies.
