Earls Bankers Hall is located in the heart of downtown Calgary on Stephen Ave, steps from the Core Shopping Mall & short drive from the Saddledome. Enjoy a diverse, globally inspired menu, hand crafted cocktails and great wine selection. Serving up classics including Steak and Sushi, Bigger Better Burger, Ribs and Cajun Chicken and a Quinoa Avocado Powerbowl. If you are in the mood for something more globally inspired enjoy the Dragon Roll or the Hunan Kung Pao. We serve brunch every Saturday, Sunday and on holiday Mondays from 11:00am - 3:00pm and brunch Happy Hour from 11:00am - 1:00pm. The restaurant features two main dining spaces: the Canteen - perfect for lunch or dinner, and the Bankers Bar - a lively place to gather for the hockey game or after work cocktails. Our space is a great place to host events from 10 - 400 people. The restaurant also boasts an atrium space which makes for a sophisticated setting for private events.

Sandwich bun was dry and hard. Fries weren’t really warm. Other guest received beyond meat burger instead of real burger that he ordered so had to wait for a re-order. Water glasses were left empty until we asked mid meal. At least they comped the burger.

The chicken sandwich and king pao bowl were really good but the pizza was totally soggy on the bottom. That is disappointing for a $17 pizza.

The service was great, but the food was pretty underwhelming this time. Sandwich was pretty hard.

Most food was good however two of the steaks had too much seasoning, salty and lots of pepper.
One of the party couldn’t eat his steak because of the quantity of seasoning. He ordered the regular sirloin and it looked blackened.
Earls and our server did remove it from the bill but that was not what we went there for, we wanted to eat a decent meal

Earl's stephen avenue is always dependable for a good happy hour at a good price. It's busy but that means it's good and we can usually always get a table. Service has always been great.

It was my first time to Earls at Bankers Hall location, overall it was a good experience to me. My friend and I went there for lunch. It was just busy and the service and food quality was so-so. The restaurant is fancy and the presentation of the food is meeting my standard. The waitress was friendly. The speed of the order needs improvement. If you are in a rush, you cannot dine there. It was a positive experience to me.

Food was good but dislike high top tables. Asked to move but told no tables available which did not appear to be the case as many short tables were unoccupied.

Like the atrium dining space. However the soup bowls are now bigger than they were so they didn’t even fill it half full and with the bigger size it was moderately warm. What’s the point of a bigger bowl if you are not going o at least fill it 3/4s full?

Hello,

The food was good, but I have to say the service was very below average.

Our server literally only came to our table once to take out order. We had to flag them down everytime we needed a top up of water/coffee and when we wanted to order more drinks. The restaurant was not busy so I'm not sure why they were so unattentive. It was quite dissapointing to say the least.

Always consistent food quality and superb service with enough choices on the menu to satisfy most palates. Great place to have a business lunch and can typically get a reservation a few days in advance, unlike Cactus Club downtown. Noise level is a bit high, but palatable.

We had a decent meal here, however, spring vegetables turned out to be only asparagus, and my steak was slightly overdone, although perfectly edible. Having had many more meals on our first visit to Canada, this meal has slipped down my personal leaderboard for being not such good value. We thought we had chosen a posh venue to celebrate several birthdays and anniversaries between us, but this turned out to be an expensive sports bar with average food.

Stampede Week. We had 5:15 p.m. reservations and were there on time. It took 15 minutes to order a beer and another 15 minutes to receive the beer. 30 minutes for a beer is sad.
Food was very good.
Service people were pleasant.
Nice place.
