The food and ambience was absolutely amazing. Our server did not check in on our table at all, we were left with no water or drinks for the entire meal. The only reason I tipped was because it’s split with the kitchen, who deserves it, not the server.

I’ve been an Earl’s fan for decades but as I age my tolerance for noise has kept me away. I was so excited this last time it was much more tolerable. Maybe due to Covid??

The ribs were undercooked and when the waitress was notified nothing was done about it, they didn’t offer to remake them, we didn’t even have an apology from a manager. I wouldn’t have been so upset if I wasn’t 8 months pregnant and unable to eat them. My husband had the burger which was decent, but we both left still hungry. Which is disappointing considering our bill was 150. Not a great value for the amount of food you get.

We had fantastic service from our server Anna and lunch manager Amanda.

They made our dining experience during a pandemic feel seamless and not stressful at all!

The service was awesome! Me and my husband went to Earls Barlow for brunch for wedding anniversary. The food was delicious! The service was so quick. They put us in a booth as I requested when i reserved online. To top it all of, our whole meal was on the house! Free food for our anniversary! The manager was so kind and thoughtful, as well as our server. Best experience ever.

I was served a meal that was definitely not gluten free after asking the server to check with the kitchen. Good thing I asked again before eating or I would have been very sick. Break down in the kitchen....but the manager was awesome about it comping our entire bill! He assured me this was not how they usually are. I have never had problems here before, will try again.

Outstanding service from our waitress River!!! Our table was also chosen for the special discount which saved us money! Currently we are living in separate areas of the city trying to have weekly date nights, meals and gas add up so this was such a great surprise!!! Thank you!

Absolutely fantastic service! I made reservations to the restaurant for a business meeting with a client. The service, food, ambience, and COVID safety protocols was of highest quality from arrival to departure. My client and I enjoyed our meals and had a productive meeting. In the end, the Earls management decided to pick up the tab and said it was their way of thanking us coming in and enjoying the service - this was a fantastic marketing strategy. I have been telling all of my colleagues who already have plans to go enjoy lunch, dinner and even maybe a happy hour.

I will certainly be returning to this restaurant in the near future. Thank you Earls for the hard work, dedication and always the amazing food.

The outside patio was set up nicely with lots of space between the tables and big umbrellas to provide shade. The service was excellent, our server was friendly and attentive. The food was great we will definitely go back.

Our experience from start to finish was stellar in every way. The server and the managers were extremely personable and at the same time professional. Our food and drinks cane promptly and with perfect timing. Service and food were excellent in quality. The patio seating was perfect. We had a really enjoyable experience and would highly recommend this Earl’s location!
Keep up the great work...we’ll be back!

Enjoyed a fantastic meal and service at this Earls location. We were celebrating a new job and wedding anniversaries, with my in-laws. Earls staff were very conscientious with Covid-19 protocols and we felt very safe and well taken care of throughout the evening. The food was amazing, service timely and friendly, it was great to enjoy a stress free night on the town.

We have been dining here only a few times, our first experience was exceptional, however our last 3 visits were not as great as the first. Our servers have all been very pleasant and professional. The timing on our last visit was unusually slow, not due to our server, they were alone to serve the lounge side single-handed.

I'll never go to Earls again and will never recommend it. Was my boyfriend's birthday, the first that we spend together, I asked simple things at the time of the reservation and none of them was done. I also asked discreetly for the waitress to check the instructions once again because I wanted to do him a surprise.
Earls is his favourite restaurant, we had our second date over there and since then we enjoy the food, the drinks and our time together.
By the end of the night with the lack of two simple things, sparkling wine and surprise dessert, I had an awkward moment trying to explain to him that I was sad because I tried to do something nice for him on his favourite place but Earls didn't have the courtesy to follow simple instructions, but which were very important for us.
Earls, it's no longer his favourite restaurant.
