Not sure if it's because half of the area is under construction or what but the server put cramped the 6 of us at a semi-circle table.. Not even enough to put our dishes on the table and only have 4 settings instead of 6 until we asked for another 2 sets. Clearly the table was meant for 4.

There was no indication on the website that the dining room was closed so we had to struggle to have a conversation in the excessive noise. in the bar.

the only issue I have with Earl's is that the noise level is quite high - difficult to have a conversation

The ambience is great.
The food was just as described if not better.
Drinks were good.
No surprises here.
Earls did not disappoint.

It’s my first time to eat lunch at Earls, with my friend. Service is good, the staff are courteous & pleasant. Drinks & food came fast (which is nice cuz I’m already thirsty & hungry, and we came at 11:10AM, I think we’re the early customers. Salmon was cooked perfectly!

The bartender who made our cocktails after dinner suggested some great bars around the area as we were from out of town. He was great!

I ordered my steak Medium and it came pretty well done. My husband ordered his Medium Rare and it was pretty well done as well. Waittress was nice, but didn't come by asking for refills.

From the time we sat down till we left everything was amazing. Our server was attentive and efficient and read us well. She didn't hover but kept an eye out. The food quality was delish! And lots of it.
Going to book another night for a concert coming up but its for a bigger group. Im sure it will be just as good.

Yes, I liked the food and the environment...brunch before noon under $ 10 was good value.
Spiritless drinks were reasonable price and quite delicious.
Although, there seemed to be a lot of staff around, we should have had much better service! It was definitely lacking !!!
We had to wait for service, had to ask for cutlery, asked for pepper and salt...salt celler was empty! asked for extra coffee, asked for the bill, we seemed to be doing all the work i stead of the staff....
On leaving, staff were talking ...no one asked if we had enjoyed or meal or goodbye?
So service was very poor...

I went for lunch on a Saturday. The service was slow. I was absolutely forgotten about 5 times and had to ask 3 different people to get my drink. I wouldn’t return or recommend this venue.

Great food, great atmosphere, great restaurant ambience, and the service was excellent. We called our waitress over a few times because we couldn't decide what to order, and she never got annoyed! The restaurant was extremely busy but they did not make us feel rushed in the slightest bit. The only downside was that the music was a bit loud so it was hard to talk to people unless you were sitting right next to them.

First time at Earls downtown on King street to meet a colleague who was leaving our company. Drinks and food were good as was the service. Definitely a “near the end of the week” vibe being a Thursday at 5pm right downtown in the Financial District. Lots of fun!!

We add additional people who joined our group and they were really accommodating. Great job on their part. I found it a bit loud and it was difficult to discuss but we had a good evening.

Noisey, but being in a booth cuts the noise level considerably. Great service, wines overpriced.

Earl's is my 'go to' for business lunches.

I haven't gone after work (yet!) But hope to soon.

I just love the place.

Had a lovely experience at Earls for a friends birthday. Our server, Meredith, was attentive, sociable and friendly! I think everyone at our table enjoyed their food and we had a really fun night out! Only thing is that this restaurant is super dark, so be prepared to use your phone's flashlight feature to order from the menu.

Waitress never came to check on us at all. Never brought any water. Had to get another waiter to ask for the bill. Waitress did not deserve the tip at all, but gave anyways.

It was really great food with good service. It did take a while to leave though due to the lack of credit machines to cash and our server needing to search far and wide for a machine
