    We were a vegan group and we came to try the plant based part of the menu, and our server was kind, but so clueless, that despite telling him that we were Vegan five times, he still brought food with cheese on it. I also messed up our bills and it took us 30 minutes to leave the restaurant after asking for our check. I don’t blame the kid, he is clearly inexperienced, I blame whatever management didn’t place someone to help him. The vegan pizza was so good the first time I had it in a prior visit, but this time pizza was burned and a lot less creamy. I was disappointed. Not to mention it was my boyfriends birthday, and we did laugh at the whole situation but this special day didn’t feel so special

    Earl's + Test Kitchen is one of my Go to stops when I'm downtown Vancouver. Great service, quality servings, reasonably priced. That about all I can say. Just keep up the great work.

    We had a reservation for 9:15PM on Saturday August 13. We mismanaged our time and arrived at 8:00PM. The host at the entrance was so warm and welcoming, accommodated us in less than couple of mins! Outstanding service! Our host, Jade, was so nice, accommodated all our requests. There was a misunderstanding around us ordering Blackened Chicken but getting Ribs and Blackened Chicken. It was replaced in like 2 mins even though we were okay waiting for longer! Later, floor manager Abeel (apologies if I misspelled) came to our table. A friend asked him about the parrot pin he was wearing, he explained everything so nicely, genuinely gave us time. This was such a good experience. Totally coming back later!

    The ambience was like a tired old pub in a warehouse. Service was slow. The noise level was unbearable. We couldn’t hear each other or the waitress. We left and went to a nicer dining spot nearby. Don’t go if you are over 50.

    We are visitors to Vancouver, but have been to the city many times and seem to often return to this restaurant. Very good service, friendly waitperson, didn’t feel rushed or ignored. Menu options were good, with many new items to try. Food was tasty, portions were adequate. Prices were reasonable. They did not disappoint, and we will return again.

    It was Pride Parade day so will grant them that, as it looked like they were down to maybe 4 staff on the floor, so super busy and short staffed equals lacking service. Food was great, drinks great just took forever, but that is not their typical.

    It was hotter in the restaurant than outside. People were standing outside for relief. All beer was warm, bottles, draft, everything. Couldn't put much ice in the jug of water but tons of ice in the pitcher of mojito. Only washrooms are located upstairs. Service was good, food was pretty good.

    It was okay. I might have high expectations but i could have done better fettuccine. The king pao was their own version which was okay. My son had a test dish of steak and ravioli which was very good. So overall.... it was okay

    The service was really very slow and surprisingly the restaurant was not busy at that time also still we had to wait a lot for our food and bill to arrive. We even had to get up from our table and go to the bar to get the refills as we waited 20 minutes for the server to get back. I’m a regular at earls in different locations this was the first time I had bad experience

    I went there with my boyfriend after the CFL game! The waiter was so nice I forgot his name but he has blonde hair. I felt so bad tho. I was a little drunk when paying the bill and instead of tipping 20% I tipped two dollars :/ My mistake but the waiter was super nice! Definitely coming back

    Fairly loud room but the service was great and carefully kept to our schedule as we were off to the theatre after our meal. The test kitchen's street corn sharing dish was very good. The white chocolate creme brûlée was spectacular.
