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.

I left the restaurant. Dining should be about the food and ambience. The music was crazy loud. I could barely
hear the waiter. If I am dining out;
I don't need to feel like I am at a LOUD
disco. I will never go back there!

Hi Gail, My name is Sara and I am the Restaurant Manager at Earls Test Kitchen. I wanted to personally follow up and apologize for the volume of music you experienced while dining at my restaurant. I have followed up with my entire leadership team and reset the expectation around volume. I would hate for this to be your last impression of the Test Kitchen and would love to invite you back on an experience on us. If you could email me at sara.csizik@earls.ca, I would be happy to set that up!

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.

Thanks for the great night!

I've had two issues during this visit:

- I was seated at 4:47pm but no one came to take the order until 5:02 which made me think I'll miss the happy hour. The waiter said that he will still push it as in happy hour as I was sitting there already for 13 mins with no chance to order. However, the bill showed the full price for our drinks (Raspberry Mojito - happy hour would be $8, we were charged $11).

- Both kinds of drinks that we had (Raspberry Mojito & Aperol Spritz) weren't great. Too sour and I didn't feel the alcohol in them.

Sievert was wonderful however the vibe for the restaurant and covid safety was set by the attitude of the hostess.
Margaritas are far too sweet but on the second order we were able to request less sugar syrup making a great Monday night drink special. Food was tasty and fast.

Food was not the greatest. My chicken street tacos were extremely soggy and overflowing with cabbage ... fries were quite salty and the Buffalo cauliflower was also quite soggy after not very long.

Did not like how I received an open table email in regards to not making our reservation which in fact we did attend.

The food was great, however the overall experience was terrible. Firstly, my roommate has many deathly allergies so the waitress went over the order twice to ensure my roommates safety. She got it correct, but wrong it in incorrectly so my roommate couldn’t eat her meal as their was an unknown sauce on her burger she may react to. The waitress was incredibly annoyed with us for asking to have the problem corrected. We had also ordered the same drinks and food during happy hour, and even questioned to make sure our orders qualified as happy hour prices. Upon receiving the bill, my roommate was socked that her bill was more than twice the amount one was. When questioned politely about it our server was incredibly condescending and rude in explaining that my roommates gluten free bun and vodka cost far more than we were told when ordering. After this another server was sent over, to whom we explained the misunderstanding to, but she just said these things are common knowledge, and that they don’t have to inform customers of uncharges etc., even when asked directly about them. We have since found out that this waitress only works on Saturday’s and our situation was resolved with customer service. I however do not recommend this location on any Saturday, especially if you suffer from sever food allergies. Very disappointed, but willing to give this location a second chance when more friendly and accommodating staff are on shift.
