Earls Kitchen + Bar - Fir Street - Vancouver
Amazing food and unreal service!! We had an awesome server who was super helpful and friendly!
Solid as usual. Food and service are both excellent
Server was great and food was value for money
Good food and our server was excellent! Probably one of the best ever. He got our 4 year old’s food order out in record time and was very attentive to our needs. Thanks also to the cooks for their speed!
Great server.....awesome food! I had the dynamite roll which was superb. My friends had salmon that they loved. My only comment is that I asked for a table in the bar.....they didn’t seem to know about my request. They were able to seat us in the bar so all was fabulous.
Excellent service as per usual & fantastic brunch, our party of 5 were very happy. First time seating in the lounge which was quieter than the bar area.
BBQ rib is really really nice, taste greatly. You should be ready for waiting for a long time to order or service in the afternoon, it seems that the waitress are not enough.
It was a Sunday shortly after opening so it tends to get crowed especially if it is a sunny day. Thank goodness we had reservations. Got in ok -the food was very good, but the service is slow. Maybe it is too few servers for the place but we had to beg for coffee on more than 1 occasion and 1 order was screwed up-that person really had to wait for eggs benedict. Server disappeared at times-hard to get her attention. They should have someone circling with a coffee all the time. Otherwise a very tasty meal.
Always a great time at Earls. Best happy hour in town!
Sunday Brunch from 11AM to Noon is a good deal, very reasonable. Service was a bit slow at times. Good coffee. Ambiance is good, except a bit of a draft from the door so watch where you sit if it's a bit chilly outside. Great for a casual get-together with friends and family.
Family dinner worked well here as it is centrally located from the north shore , kits and the valley
I have meals at Earl's as I am able to eat delicious food that are Gluten Free (serious allergy).
Still always have to extra sensitive to "Gluten Aware" GA and possible cross contamination, but so far ok.
Also servers are great, friendly, responsive and make good food recommendations like warm Kale salad, yummie! Dine out with family, friends and work colleagues, some are vegan, GA etc..
Treated a few friends to brunch that was very good, look forward to doing it all again next weekend! Eggs Benny was great!
I would just ask that the fresh sheets and menus get a "wipe" once in awhile, thanks!
Food was subpar, other locations , food better. Service painfully slow.
Great ambiance - buzzing. Good options for happy hour. Great service!
Amazing lunch, and the 50% off any wine bottle on Tuesday is hard to resist
Family gathering but near the kitchen which was incredibly noisy. My niece had several issues getting a coke but overall was good
We enjoyed our food. The Korean wings were very good. The waitress was very pleasant. The watchamacallit white wine was very good.
The music was at a good level for us to have conversation. The lighting and atmosphere had a calm and intimate feeling.
The calamari was good though I wish something more imaginative could be done with calamari.
I will return. Pleasant, warm and dependable.
We have been to this Earls numerous times and were very disappointed in the service today. Our food took 45 minutes to arrive and the service continued to be slow for us (e.g. I asked for salt and by the time it arrived, my food was cold). No apologies from our server. In the meantime, other guests arrived after us and received their food before us. Very disappointed today. Also, not sure what was wrong with the system. Our reservation was for 12:30, but Earls had it in their system for 11:30?
Noisy, slow, worse than average food. Staff forgot about us at the bar (although we had a reservation), brought wrong order three times (after bringing right one!). Place smelled of ketchup (vinegar) and food was very ordinary. Worst margarita (cocktail) I’ve had in North America.
I go to earls a lot as it’s convenient and reliable. We go at least once/week. However ever since they changed managers about 1 1/2 year ago (I think) the service has really changed or the worse. I shouldn’t blame management exactly, I just feel like it’s the reason. Well today was so bad. Our food took one hour to come. The waitress was grumpy. Not one smile. Never came to check on us nevertheless to apologize for the delay. The food was cold by the time it came to the table and my fettuccine Alfredo had almost no sauce and my daughter’s was like a soup. Anyhow, hope they get it together soon as it’s been my family’s go to place.
The burger was extremely salty and the quality of the food overall has been on the decline at this location...the service is not the greatest; always required to ask for side plates/utensils...
We had a group of family, 10 of us and our waiter was very good with the kid end of the table as well as the adult end.
Fun and good food was had by all!
Good location for a business lunch in a commercial area of town. The menu was contemporary American fare and had a good bottle list with excellent service. I would return for future lunch meetings.
Great location near downtown Vancouver and right off the Granville bridge, some parking at restaurant otherwise lots of street parking in the area and within walking distance. Friendly and attentive hostess and wait staff. Extensive menu and great food.
We were seated in the front; heaters much too hot; benches not comfortable.
Food was great. Our waitress was hard to find at times and seemed a little busy. Value is amazing and ambiance is wonderful as well.
Best salads for lunch. Will be back for sure
The event organization was great, they set up my table for 20 people in a very busy day. Some times the service was taking too long, especially to bring the drinks. The food was very tasty and it was happy hour, so foods and drinks were in a very good deal.
We dined at Earl's (Fir St) restaurant on Thanksgiving Monday. The restaurant was so dysfunctional. There were long waits and two tables next to me left very unhappy. It looked as though they had cut their dinners short. Another table of women next to me were laughing about how bad the service was. They described the atmosphere as chaotic.
When our food came (The Thanksgiving Turkey dinner) is was cold. The potatoes were runny as though liquid had been added to make them go further. And they weren't warm...they were actually cold. There was no gravy as advertised. The turkey was dried out. There was only squash, no greens. When I asked where the brussel sprouts were, I was told that they had run out. The food looked like it had been dumped on my plate. I was shocked that the chef and server would server such poor quality food. Where was their judgment? The food was returned to the kitchen and we ordered something else which also took a ridiculously long time to arrive. Even people at the next table commented on how long we had to wait.
I spoke to the manager who didn't do a great job of dealing with the issue. He did pay for an appetizer and drinks (1 wine and 1 pop) but given our disappointment over our much anticipated Thanksgiving meal that was ruined, I felt that the entire meal should have been complimentary. I still had to pay a $90 bill for 3 people for one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had.
I have been a long time customer of Earl's but I don't think I'll be coming back. If the manager had dealt with this properly, I might have given the staff the benefit of the doubt and written it off as a really bad night. But the manager's poor customer relations skills has sealed the deal for me .
Sunday dinner out w/hubby & 2kids to celebrate a quiet post anniversary family dinner. Took forever for waitress to appear. Our order was taken by manager & food took forever. Eventually only 1appetizer arrived instead of bringing kids’ food out quickly. Missing items & finally I just got up & went to get cutlery that should have been brought out much sooner. They did remove drinks from final bill to try to make a better impression.
I have been going to Earls for years and the food is consistently good, I've never been disappointed.
One of the best happy hour menus in Vancouver. Lots of choices in different price ranges. Servers always friendly and attentive
Service has been steadily declining at this location for the last year. Last night we had a reservation but despite this we appeared to have no server assigned to our table. We had to flag down a manager to order our drinks and food. When the food came they forgot one item and we had to flag someone down again to have that delivered. There was no clearing of plates until we specifically asked the manager to clear them. One of our party ordered coffee and this was forgotten until we asked a passing server to bring it.
The server was very nice but clearly was not able to handle her section, whether this was due to inexperience or being overwhelmed was not clear.
We used to come here all the time and we love the food but the service is consistently bad the last few times we have been there.
Food was quite good, service was slow and inattentive; unusual for Earls. Sushi was too cold, not freshly made I'd guess.
"OpenTable" is User-Friendly. Thanks for this valuable service. The Earl's lunch was a special occasion, enjoyed by all.
The wings are normally great at Earls and I will go there just for the wings. Unfortunately this time they weren't. They weren't hot enough or crispy. It was as if they were fried, left under the heat lamp, then tossed in sauce a few minutes later.
I had the steak with mashed potatoes, and green beans in a flavourful sauce. I loved it, but some would not because the sauce was highly salted.
The reason I would not recommend this earls in particular was the volume. It was so loud you had to basically shout to hear people. We were on the covered patio.
Overall the food was fine, except for my meal. I ordered the Ahi Tuna Salad
and it was not enjoyable. Lettuce was drowned in dressing and limp. Tuna was so tiny and chewy and the flavour was not a good taste. Quite a disappointment. Presentation was
not appealing as well.
My two guests said they enjoyed their meals.
Way too warm without AC
Could use decor refresh
Fish taco not so great
Tuna salad very good
Despite the fact that we have been here before and to other Earls locations, we were very disappointed this time. Two of our party thought that the fish and chips lacked flavour, two thought the curried chicken dish was lackluster and the fifth person was underwhelmed by the tuna portion. In addition we had to try to get the attention of our server when we wanted more beverages and when we wanted our bill. Not what we have come to expect of Earls.
