After trying to get a reso at almost 20 of my favorite spots, I settled on Earls, as it was the first to accommodate my time frame. I hadn’t been there in a few years, and I was pleasantly surprised.

We had an very good meal and service was excellent and attentive. A bit noisy , but that’s just the architecture. Considering how little time Earls has had to get up and running , albeit not full speed, we were very impressed.

We ordered a good old fashioned Prawn Cocktail and Truffle fries for a starter, and and I had the The Filet with Crabcake My associate had the NY steak , and we shared a Toffee pudding for desert. (It’s generous) Normally I would never have ordered a steak unless at Hy’s , but dang, Earls did a pretty decent job of it! 😋. Our server has worked there 5 years it reflected on her service. Good job Earls!

Overall great to be back indoor dining. The waiter was a little slow but his expo, help was quite attentive

The music is really loud in the test kitchen. We’d probably tend to try a quieter Earls in future

We had the best service, best food and best experience at the Hornby Test Kitchen which was just down from our hotel. We went back the following night for dinner again because the whole experience was so good. We then went and tried Earls on Top on Robson Street and it was like we were at a different restaurant. The whole experience was nothing like the other restaurant and the food was not good, it was unbelievable how different the experience was.

Our Server Isabelle was EPIC, attentive but not pushy, available but not hovering.
I am an Earls Fan, have been for years, the Chicken Karaage at the Test Kitchen was incredible.
The only negative thing I can say, and it's SUPER minor, the booth we were sat at, the table was wobbly and in need of some refinishing,,,, all first world problems, all in all, still, the ambiance of the restaurant was incredible, I'll go back, again and again and again.
Thanks again to Isabelle for taking good care of us.
for referance, our Check number was 1815, Table 113

As a semi-regular over the past few years, I have always been very happy with the food, service, and value of the "Happy Hour" menu. Many positives at Earls have come from the time of "Covid", but unfortunately there are equally some negatives. Have noted the value of coming for "Happy Hour" has slowly been eroded away, the prices have gone up and the "Happy Hour" time has been cut short. Hopefully, Earls will start to value its customers again soon, and not pass on the added costs of doing business to its customers. There remain many alternatives in the area, and customers don't forget.

As always great time at Earl's, last time whoever the manager on the floor was accused us of hitting on waitresses which WE never did, then a girl approaches my table, starts flirting, asked for my number, hung out at our table for few mins (Which we don't mind).

My friend talks to girls behind us at their table after they been chatting with us from distance, he comes to us with the audacity to ask us not to do that again or we will be removed from the restaurant and then accuse us of hitting on the waitresses!!

Absolutely unacceptable, i'm there 2-3 times a week at least and most of staff do recognize me, i don't ever write bad reviews but his accusations are to be taken action for, he comes back high and mighty and throw the card for his higher manager as if he didn't care.

Had a lovely lunch, very good service and excellent food. Service was very good, efficient and appreciated the waiter did a good job without getting overly friendly (which some other restaurants do). Was greeted friendly at the door and when we left were thanked for coming to lunch. My burger was delicious and my companion enjoyed their grilled chicken salad. Would definitely return. Thank you.

Everything was perfect, from the service to the food, as always. And you carry Macallan scotch, so you get bonus points.

It was my first time not being served by Ashley and while the service was great, her absence proved how much of a difference she makes and why I always request her and only go on Fridays.
