Overall food was good. My wife loved the crab cake. We had a great time.
Food was awful, bar service was slow
Everything is perfect!!
For sure will recommend to my friends
At a time when restaurants are struggling to find and retain good waitstaff in the US following COVID, it was so great to have such great service at Earl's - our server was the perfect combination of attentive & personable, while still giving us time to eat and enjoy our food in peace.
Booked bar seating but were given a very comfortable booth. Wait staff were very effecient. Accomodations for gluen & dairy free meals were well executed. As Tuesday was steak day, we ordered steaks which were tasty and good value. Meals seemed a bit too salty but delicious nonetheless.
Only concern was that the large open area was a bit noisier than we seniors like but it was good to see the restaurant busy & still feel safely distanced.
Friendly waitress and staff
It was ok on a weeknight, not too loud!
I wasn't there but Tonya served my Mum and her friend and they both had amazing things to say about service and food!! Thanks team :)
Didn’t get greeted for ten minutes- just sat there
Plenty going on but we got a cozy table off the main room for our pre-theatre dinner & drinks. Handy way to start your evening fowntown
Food was very bland. Waitress was very nice though. Won’t be going back. Not worth the amount at all
Fast service, food came out quickly which was great. We all enjoyed our meals!
Everything was super great except the music. Don’t feel it needs to be that loud in a restaurant. Made it feel more like a bar.
The bbq ribs and Cajun chicken were great as usual. The initial wine we ordered was on tap, which we didn’t know, and wasn’t great. Earls gave us a bottle of another wine which was great. Quite noisy there last night.
Everything was fabulous! Perfect location, comfortable booth, very well designed, open dining room. Lots of room. Service was perfectly timed, menu had tons of great choices. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and drinks. Thank you!
Seems like my server was pretty busy. No one checked up on my food till after I finished it. She did check on my dessert
Food quality not good
they didn’t have my reso
We are visiting from Scotland and wanted to find good food, good ambience with a Canadian twist. We found it…..and we’re looking forward to our third visit at the weekend!
Food was great! Atmosphere was great! Our server was amazing!
Due to the noise level in the restaurant it was very difficult to hear the waiter and waitresses particularly since they had masks on.
Excellent food and great service.
Quite a few mistakes: drinks mix-up, wrong food order, and our mains arrived at the table before the appetizer! Our server was nice and attentive as soon as the mistakes happened and did her best to correct. The restaurant section was not full but appeared "busy" and noisy. Food was tasting very good.
Escape from reality
One of my favourite places for meeting with friends and going to the movies! Excellent food choices and happy hour!
Okay okay okay
Wanna thank the Earl's Manager for going above and beyond last night. 😍
Also wanna thank our server for providing awesome service.
Took 13 minutes for someone to acknowledge our table (6 people) and that was by asking the manager when he went by. He ended up taking our drink and food order, our drinks came 10 minutes later. Food came out fairly quickly but a couple issues with two of the dishes and my daughters pizza came out 7 minutes after we had all already had our food. Manager took care of the two dishes that were wrong and took down my email address as he was going to email something that stated that the next time we came in dinner and drinks would be on him (personally our bill this night should have just been covered). Couple days since we went and I have not received the email yet.
Food was pretty good and came quickly. However, the service was really slow and it took awhile to order drinks.
I ended up finishing my nashville burger but it was lacking any spice and sauce and sadly the fried chicken was quite burnt. My girlfriends food was amazing though. Our server was also awesome!!
Steph is awesome! Clearly the A team.
calamari was overly fried and the taco tortilla was also burnt and hard to chew, I dine regularly at earls but I did not enjoy my meal this day.
Amazing! Delicious! Service A+
Service courtois et agréable
Plats un peu spicy mais vraiment bons.
Just average. Acceptable but nothing special.
Excellent service, food, and drinks! Will definitely be back :)
Great staff. Made it easy to review my COVID card and took me to a table after I requested standard seat. Menu as many choices and service was excellent.
Great food, friendly service and an overall good experience - will definitely be coming back soon.
Great food. Great service. I would definitely come back
