I always enjoy coming here. There is a relaxed atmosphere and you never feel rushed.
Wonderful as always. Great food & service & quiet seating as requested.
Always exceptional. I have eaten at the Earle many times and have never been disappointed, it has always been excellent, the food, service and drinks, top notch.
For us, the food at the Earle has consistently wonderful. I love their duck but others
at our table have other dishes they love as well. Can't let a year go by without a visit
It was a double celebration...Mothers Day and my wife's birthday! The weather was cold and rainy, but the Earle was its usual warm and cozy place. Our servers, Hannah and Paul were friendly, knowledgeable, attentive, but not intrusive. We are in our 70's and enjoyed lingering and reminiscing over our food and drink.
Had a lovely Mother’s Day meal. The restaurant is a little noisy but not so much as to make conversation difficult. My friend loved her veal Marsala. I had the salmon and it was good. Crepe brûlée fantastic!
Service was a bit slow but they do have a large crowd at the end of school year in a college town. Food is fair, not up to par to what it used to be.
Loved the food and all that jazz!
We were celebrating our anniversary. We have been going to The Earle since it opened, especially for special occasions. We have never been disappointed. Food and service were excellent!
Great food! Can't wait to go back!
Great atmosphere and very good food. The consistency of the food has always been spot on.
The food and drinks are consistently top quality and the basement setting is like a speakeasy.
My $34 streak had a cup of Dijon peppercorn sauce poured over it, a scoop of rich gratin potatoes (menu just said potato), and some soggy vegetables. I realize some people love the food here but we have not had much luck. Different tastes for different folks I guess. We do like the retro atmosphere and jazz. Maybe we should just stick to apps at the bar.
The Earle was great, especially the food. Our entire party enjoyed their meals, especially the red meat dishes. Our server was not very knowledgeable about the wine selection though; we had to wait a while for the sommelier to bring a bottle over.
Wonderful as always and our request for a quiet table was honored, a good thing since the restaurant was very full on this graduation night.
Excellent food excellent service every time
Excellent as always
Had a big party of 8 for a graduation celebration. Food was outstanding; but service was just average. The whitefish was wonderful!
One dish came to the table cold after quite a long wait.
Sent it back and it was delicious.
Scallops were the best.
The Earle is better than ever. New menu items like grilled tuna and marinated portobello make it easy to enjoy their special brand of mediterranean flavors with a lighter healthy touch. We have been going since it opened and are delighted to see it evolve. would love to see dessert specials added to their classics and maybe a daily entry offering too.
The food was absolutely outstanding. We could not have asked for a better experience.
Great service - great dinner selection. Appetiizer (antipasti plate) and dinner salad not worth the money. They should renovate the restrooms and get more booth seating. We love the main dining room and piano in the background is perfect.
The staff were friendly and polite. The service was great. We didn't have to wait for anything as our food and drink were served in a timely fashion. I tasted two dishes and they were both delicious.
We recently dined at The Earle and it was amazing. The food was outstanding, the wine selection amazing, and the service extraordinary. They were able to accommodate our food allergies without compromising the taste. I look forward to going back to The Earle soon and highly recommend this fine establishment!
Great Good, great setting, great wine : the Earle remains one of the Best in A2. Too bad the both I was in was quite uncomfortable for seating
Excellent food and service as always. Great new dishes on the menu.
The Caesar salad had so much garlic that we had to send it back. They remade it. Our entree was a pasta dish and again was loaded with garlic. It was inedible. We went without a main as w were overloaded with garlic.
The server told us that she couldn’t eat the food either because of the garlic. We will not be returning
We love dining at the Earle, especially early when it’s nicely quiet. Menu is fairly classic French and Italian, with standard options well prepared. We enjoy the panzanella and the vegetable soups, vegetable sides are always tasty. I wasn’t as impressed with the tuna this time; very heavily sauced and a bit over cooked, but I think next time I’ll simply ask for much less sauce. Salmon en croute was lovely and delicious. We skip dessert because we are always quite sated by then, although they are very tempting.
The Earle had been the fancy restaurant in town until the foodie revolution came to Ann Arbor. Now there are many dining choices and we strayed from going to the Earle. But our dinner there the other evening reminded us that they have wonderful, Northern Italian style cuisine. And the wine list is extensive with great selections for all palates and price points. The wait staff and the wine steward were knowledgeable and friendly. But our main reason initially for dining at The Earle was because of the lack of a lot of extraneous noise. We could have a conversation without having to lean over the table, cupping our ear in order to hear what is being said. Bliss!
Great place for a relaxing dinner and conversation. Staff never rushed us!! The home made pasta will bring me back again!!
If you are looking for some more authentic Italian cuisine in Ann Arbor area The Earl has it. Live music on the weekends. Great ambiance quiet little venue to see a wonderful group or artist play. The drinks are delictable. Help to celebrate my mother's birthday! Was where she has been wanting to eat for a while. It lived up to what she wanted, as a visitor of Italy, it was on point. The service was great! The food was delicious!
Nice jazz and good food, though a bit over-priced. However, we had a $10 coupon that the server refused to honor because he pointed out some very fine print on it said it was valid only week days. I thought that was rather ticky tacky given the bill was $100. You would think that a restaurant that’s been around that long would better understand the importance of customer good will. The whole point of such coupons is to get people in who might not otherwise come in, and more importantly, to get them to come back.
The food was absolutely fabulous. It was a little expensive, but so worth the money. I will be eating at The Earle again, hopefully soon
Food was superb. Gin gimlet was amazing as was the roasted garlic starter and the roasted duck. Amazing place with server and assistant server providing great table service.
The food and service are really good!!! Will go again.
Been going to the Earle for years. It never changes (perhaps because management has been the same since forever). Menu and food still great.
The food was superb, atmosphere calm and serene. Music started at 8 pm and was very pleasurable. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly.
Excellent service from the hostess to the wait staff to the busser. I absolutely love this restaurant as a symbol of old Ann Arbor. I feel special when I'm at a table, enjoying the ambiance, and listening to live jazz.
