Good food served well. Slight problem with scallops dealt with extremely efficiently, well impressed. The Cajun salmon delightful. Would have no hesitation in going again should I ever be in Vancouver again.

I booked and was seated straight away. Many others having to wait as not booked.

The service was prompt, but not rushed and very helpful.

The steak was cooked perfectly and having beans and mash was such a great change to the usual fries.

I’d recommend and return to Earls.

Ordered off the happy hour menu and was charged full price for two of the items. I didn’t notice until after I had already paid. Instead of giving a refund they gave me a gift card...
Also, service was slow. Took about 15 mins to get our drinks, burger we ordered arrived incorrectly and we waited another 15 mins for them to add cheese and bacon to it. Overall I don’t think I’d go back to this location.

We had a great happy hour experience at Earl's in Vancouver. Our server was really nice, accommodating, and knowledgeable. The food was delicious (we had seconds of the buffalo cauliflower!). The wine in the happy hour options was mediocre, but when we sent back one of the choices because we really didn't like it, the server was incredibly gracious and did not charge us for it. Instead, we ordered an excellent BC Pinot Noir for the regular menu and were delighted with it. Great place, excellent hospitality!

This is my second visit to Earls plus Test Kitchen. I was hosting some co-workers as I was visiting from Victoria and I was not disappointed. Service and food was excellent. I tried the test kitchen item braised beef with tagietellle. Probably spelt but tasted great. Will plan another stop in the future.

The overall service was excellent, from the seating to the waitstaff throughout. The food arrived in atimely manner, though as I find with all westcoast restaurant dining, heavy on dressings and sauces, but otherwise well seasoned.

We went for dinner before our son's graduation ceremony. The restaurant has a nice ambience, unfortunately, the night we were there, it was pretty busy and too loud. Aside from the noise from all of the guests, TV's are playing pretty loud, so it was very hard to have a conversation.

We had to ask our server for our son's food as he was running out of time, and she delivered his dish promptly. Food for the rest of us came soon after that, except what my husband ordered. We think his dishes had been forgotten somewhere along the line, and probably rushed at the last minute. He ordered dry ribs and a bowl of tortilla soup (test dish), and unfortunately was ill all night and the following day - terrible cramps and fever. =(

As always a great time here. Perfect spot to bring omnivore colleagues but where I can still get a great plant based meal. Earls has become our go-to spot for work lunches.

I don’t like the screens and the high noise level. It is very difficult to talk. I think they do that so people will leave as fast as is possible.

Server forgot to enter 1 order (lobster something appy) for us for the happy hr price, but would have given us the rate due to server error. It was really busy on Tues with a couple big groups, so our food was delayed and we were in a hurry to go to a concert. We cancelled the lobster appy. Server was kind enough to comp our drinks. We had chicken street tacos, buffalo cauliflower and yam fries. All were quite good.

Lebhaftes Restaurant in zentraler Lage. Die Speisekarte war ok, Nord amerikanisches essen. Man merkte aber, dass es ein kettenrestaurant ist.

Once again had work colleagues up from our San Francisco office and Earls was an easy choice for lunch. As the only vegan in the group it's so great that I can have a real lunch and everyone else can get food they like too. Staff always wonderful as well.

I did not like the loud base music so much..hard to talk over it.
I was served the Salmon Zen Bowl which I really like but this time I was served an avocado with a large black area in it. Not appetizing so I had waitress take it back (wS given new avocado) Didn’t have the sesame seed powder and sesame seeds that would normally come in the avocado. She did get that for me.
The salmon seemed like a smaller than normal serving but overall I did like my dinner. (Once things got straightened out.
