I highly recommend this restaurant.

I had the Lobster / Shrimp eggs Benedict which was outstanding.

It was a bit odd having regular frenchfries instead of hash browns.

great spot

This I third time I have been here now and the service is always just so bad. Nice enough server but sooooo slow and disappeared after we were served food. We had to flag him down for a second drink but had originally wanted to have 3. With all these restrictions on restaurants I would think you would want to get the most out of each table. Food was delicious and ambiance is obviously great

Andrey was our server. He was awesome- very attentive, kind, energetic and gave honest/strong food + drink recommendations. I pulled him aside to do a surprise cheese cake + candle for my girlfriend (who just completed her Masters) and he was happy to help. He did not disappoint.

All around, great experience. Certainly will go back to Earls.

We love dining at Earl's Kitchen. The food is fresh, clean and tasty. Menu offers options for carnivores, vegans, vegetarians and pescatorians too. The restaurant and the restroom are very clean and well kept. The service is excellent, our waiter Adam was super nice and hospitable. Also they make good cocktails, mix drinks... Safety measures are taken and you do not have to worry about that, they are on top of it.

Our service was the worst I've ever had here for years. Our server was flat out rude to us. She seemed annoyed that we were there and pressured us to order only ten minutes after sitting down. This is usually the spot that I take customers to and celebrate special occasions. My experience was so bad that I likely will not return.

We celebrated my birthday from last week, yesterday 11/1. The ambiance is very nice inside although it's casual dress. It started with an awesome and attentive waiter by the name of Adam who served us huge glasses of sangria that were delicious. The menu is extensive with a lot to choose from.
Unfortunately, there was something wrong with the oven this day, resulting in our food being served overdone. However, the manager Thiago, immediately came to our table and apologized profusely and explained the problem, assuring us that, this is not the standard of quality of food that is served at Earl's of Somerville. Once we had fresh entrees served by Thiago, himself, we believed him! We followed up with dessert, to die for. He also adjusted the bill, and we left satisfied and content and with promises that we couldn't wait to come back with friends.!

We heard so many great things about this restaurant! We were so disappointed when we had a terrible dinner. We waited 30 mins for our appetizer. Another 30 mins for our dinner. Both appetizers and entrees came out cold. Our refills took 20 mins. Overall we were very disappointed we left hungry and unsatisfied.

I loved Earl’s Kitchen. It was my first visit. I was disappointed that all the outdoor tables were taken, but we were led to a lovely table next to a window we could open, with dividers between tables. Another big plus was free parking while you eat (up to 3 hours).
