First time back since March 2020. Felt very comfortable, there are now partitions between some of the tables which also provides more privacy. My guest and I hope that these partitions will remain past Covid.
The food and service, was as usual, very good.

Food was excellent - perfectly done peppercorn steak, delicious lobster ravioli, and even the hubby raved about his quinoa avocado power bowl, which none of us expected. LOL. Social distancing and covid protocols were extremely well managed, the washrooms were spotless, and our server was awesome - just wish I could remember name. (Very tall, and went to St. Francis a few years ago with my daughter.) Whole experience was a delight. And, I'll be honest, I love the room dividers and distancing between tables - makes for really good conversational atmosphere! (But I do recognize it has to be tough on businesses to run on this reduced capacity.)

The food, wine and service was excellent and value for dollar was tops. We appreciated being able to be seated on the patio. Little did we know 16th Avenue becomes a raceway for idiots on motorcycles and cars without mufflers. Also, it is direct thoroughfare for ambulances going to the Foothills Hospital. Busy Street for a Thursday evening but Earls was an awesome venue.

Just before I was seated a couple ahead of me gave the hostess a hard time about putting on their masks to travel to their seats. The gentleman said “we are not mask people” he didn’t put on the mask, just held it in front of his face when the waitress arrived. As soon as she turned her back to lead the pair to their seats, he put the mask down. The hostess was clearly shaken by his attitude and poor choices but was polite and firm in a difficult situation.
Brava to your staff *clapping* for putting up with adults that act like petulant children.

The food was cold and the service was sub par. The food took long to come and it messed all of our stomachs up as if it was not fresh.

Great set up at the patio. Parking is good this time. Usually are pretty full. Was planning have their California shrimp pizza but didn't see it on menu, a bit disappointed. Have the shrimp roll instead, was good.

Please stop your hosts and hostesses from being so aggressive about the mask wearing, a simple question about whether I want one is enough. You are not required to demand I wear one, simply to inform me about the bylaw.

Called to confirm my reservation but then when I arrived they couldn’t give us our patio reservation. We were seated inside the restaurant which was basically empty at the back in a booth next to the loud kitchen and when we requested a table near the front they said they were all reserved. By the time we left the restaurant an hour later, only 50% of the tables or less were full inside and on the patio. Very disappointed. Food and service was good but nobody cared to help to make our experience better. So many staff and not busy.

We were annoyed that although we had reservations we had to wait while people coming in after us were let in. Staff were very nice but my order was wrong, got shrimp instead of chicken curry. Fries with my wife’s order were cold. Was halfway thru my meal before my second drink finally arrived. Was going to order desert but waited so long we decided against it. We went there for our wedding anniversary but were pretty disappointed overall. Wished we had gone somewhere else to be honest.

I had dinner with my Grandma, and the staff were so amazing. Honestly went above and beyond in every aspect of the evening. Super accommodating in finding the perfect level of shaded spot on the patio, to walking us through the menu options, to checking in on us etc. Everything was perfect. Thank you so much for making a special dinner with my grandma, great:)

Coming from out of town, I didn't want to risk having to wait for a table - so thankful to be able to book a table for lunch! The table was ready for us and Griffen provided prompt, friendly service. The food was tasty and of generous proportions. I had the crab and prawn gyoza and my daughter had the Caesar salad with chicken. We were in and out in 30 minutes which meant we had more time for shopping!

Always a great experience at Earls - however, I can't believe they've taken Chili Chicken off their menu! My all-time favourite is no longer available and that made the happy hour a little less happy.

Earls menu has something for everyone. It's their plant based options that keep bringing me back their tofu teriyaki bowl is delicious.The food is always good for vegans, vegetarians, and meat eaters and gluten free options too. Our waiter Griffon was awesome and we had no idea that he's only been working there a couple of days.

Went for tail end of happy hour, but happy hours had changed a few weeks back from 3-6 to 2-5. Was disappointing as we enjoy the diversity of happy hour offerings at a reasonable price.

Sat outside with lots of shade. Excellent weather along with ambience. Nice when there’s less people so you’re not having to talk too loudly to be heard. Food is usually very good so expectations were met. We were not rushed to order and had some time to drink our bottle of wine.

Many Earls Restaurants have been a favourite of ours for many, many years. We live closest to the 16th Ave location and so choose it. Consistently, I order steak and at this location, it has never been cooked as requested. Cilantro is not listed in ingredients but finds its way onto dishes where it is not at other locations. This past visit, my steak was not properly prepared, my partner's first 2 choices included cilantro and his replacement pizza was burned black along the edges and the Fettuccine Alfredo (a favourite) tasted like fish. We have decided not to return to that location for dinner and to frequent other locations in future.

We were hesitant to go to a restaurant due to Covid-19 but were quite impressed with all preparations Earls has in place. Will definitely be going back soon!
