Het is even wennen aan de herrie. Ook staan ee natuurlijk weer sportwedstrijden op. Maar de kwaliteit van de biefstuk die we hadden was perfect

Great restaurant. If there's a game on the bar area can get loud but if you love watching sports on tv this is a great place.

After having a great experience in Earl's Kitchen in Jasper we decided to follow up that same great experience in Vancouver only to be dissapointed. The food was again of a high standard but the music level was so high my wife and I had to really raise our voices to talk to each other and we really couldn't hear the server, we feel there is no need to have the music so loud as this ruined our evening and couldn't wait to leave the restaurant.

The food was fine, the service pretty slow. We were a big party but it still seemed to take awhile for the food to come.

From the moment we entered the restaurant the service was exceptional. The Hostess was amazing as she was bombarded from all sides with interruptions. Our server Jeff was attentive and accommodating when we had a slight problem with a drink. Food was awesome. I would definitely recommend and return!!!

Went for Happy Hour, great value, portions were good and the food looked decent but our food was barely warm. Our table was literally next to the open kitchen. It should have been hotter. I don’t like cold food. Sever was attentive and came often to check on us but they lost credibility with me when the food was not hot. There’s no excuse for that.

Great food and drinks. Great atmosphere. Got a great seat at the corner window looking out onto the street. Great people watching! Service was somewhat slow and inattentive. However the two young girls sitting across from us got great service from our waiter. The bar made my drink wrong and my remake obviously got put at the back of the line because it took forever. But as I said the food was great! Make a reservation!

Our table for 6 was very tight and we had someone join us unexpectedly. Management kindly moved us to a larger table with no fuss. Although service wasn't great we understood as our server was relatively new to her position. Other team members stepped up to help when necessary.

While on vacation in Vancouver my husband and I had seen Earls Test Kitchen and wanted to try it. I made reservations for a late lunch and I’m glad I did. The location was near where we were staying and we arrived a little early. We were seated promptly and our waitress was really nice and helpful. I ordered the surf and turf (filet and lobster tail) and my husband had the chicken Alfredo with blackened chicken. Everything was cooked to perfection, steak medium, lobster not over cooked, pasta not drowning in sauce. For desert we ordered the blackberry peach cobbler with ice cream. I’m not an ice cream eater but this stuff was great! The cobbler was very good as well, not that I got much (my husband kind of took over). The entire dining experience was excellent and the wine was nice too. Very pleased

This place was close to our hotel, took reservations, and was listed as casual, and given how tired and hungry we were after traveling all day, that all fit the bill. My first Canadian meal was street chicken tacos, fries, and a glass of wine. It was all flipping delicious.

Seriously, those fries were PERFECT, the chicken tacos were simple and tasty, and my wine was a Quails' Gate Chenin Blanc. I was SO happy to discover that apparently Chenin Blanc is a BC varietal! It's one of my favorites but I don't often find it in CA. Definitely a good spot to eat!

Good atmosphere food very average. Happy hour is decent value for money. Tasting menu is expensive considering it's trial run menu. Was a bit noisy to maintain conversation if music was turned down just a few notches. Was nice clean and staff were Attentive. We went for food and drink before cinema so just quick stop. Would go back but hope food variety and quality improves

We always love how Earls allows splitting full plate orders and still serves them very decently. The ribs and cajun chicken was sumptuous.

Really appreciated being able to make a reservation for 10 people without having to have a set menu and a set spend per person. The high top tables in the bar area was perfect. The happy hour and 1/2 priced wine bottles on Tuesday made the whole expense for a large group very affordable. Very happy with the experience.

Business lunch - good service, prompt, good food.
Not all Earl's are created equal.
I was very pleased today after other not so positive experiences at other locations.

The food, venue and service at the table was excellent. We had a reservation for 10pm but where not seated until 10.25pm and had to constantly ask for our table rather than being updated with the delay which was very disappointing.

Mediocre experience, however we asked to have the tables separated and whoever was asked about this allegedly responded “this is how it’s going to be” and refused to separate the tables. It’s a simple question and ask, there was space beside us and we no longer needed the extra tables. The server was nice however.

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Earls. It didn’t hurt that we were there for 50% off Tuesday - 50% off any bottle of wine!! Our server was very attentive and helpful. The food delicious and one of the best wines we’ve had in BC. The environment was energetic but not too loud and in a good location for us. Thanks so much for the wonderful experience.
