1 order was wrong twice and the server was a little tricky to get ahold of to fix it but the remaining dishes were good and the desserts were excellent. My grandmother was hoping a candle might be brought out as it was a special birthday but I suppose we should've made it more clear that's what we were hoping for.

Great service. Our waitress knew we needed to leave by a certain time so made sure our food came out quickly and we were able to leave with some time to spare.

Ordered soup, salad and pan bread.

Tomato soup was excellent Salad was hum drum and pan bread was so-so.

Overall found the meal to be ‘nothing special’. Could make a better one myself at home

Food is pretty mediocre. I had a margharita pizza which was burnt and even the crust was greasy. Otherwise everything else was pretty solid including drinks and service.

My Tuna Poke bowl was outstanding and I will definitely order that again. My husband had the chicken fettuccine and he enjoyed it. It also came with a giant piece of bread that I thought he wouldn’t eat entirely...but he did! It’s a great place to go before a show at one of the theatres or symphony. Staff are very accommodating even though we one time didn’t make a reservation. Would definitely be returning.

Me and my friend went there before the Leafs game, it was so quick to get seated, staff was very friendly, I wish I remembered our servers name, she was great, really friendly and sweet, she suggested a great bottle of wine for us, and the ceasers were bomb! Food was good!
I’d go back again for sure!

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and was trying to give her an amazing night! Our server disappeared on us and we were left waiting for the bill for 45 min. I also mentioned several times it was her birthday and we got nothing. Singing, dessert??? I just assumed there would be better service for someones birthday.

I would definitely recommend Earl's Kitchen. The menu selection is impressive where it caters to a variety of tastes and the service is prompt. The atmosphere is upbeat and not too loud. However, Earls is busy and if you are on a schedule be sure to make reservations.

Always good food & service - a bit noisy but you know what you will get here. Our server was excellent - slight error with our meals (not a big deal and we were not even going to say anything) but he picked up on it right away and made the correction - well done!

Sort of disappointed I couldn’t get an egg as add on for my salad as it’s a quick and easy thing.
Music is way too loud, cannot have a normal conversation at all.

I went on a Monday afternoon having made an appointment online for 4:30pm . I booked a booth in the dining room, but when I arrived they advised the dining room didn't open until 5. Not a big deal as it wasn't too busy or noisy at that time. The food was fantastic. Margaritas are the feature drink on Monday. They tasted good, although, I am not sure they put any alcohol in them! Service was average. Overall a good experience and would definitely go again.

Was there just for drinks and appetizers off the happy hour menu. Drinks were excellent (mojito, and Ray's mistake), food was good (sweet potato fries, Margareta pizza, chicken tacos). Because of the time we were there 4:30 there were very few people there, but it was very busy by the time we left 5:30

While ambiance and service was good, food quality wasn’t. Dishes were salty and my friend had to return her Cajun chicken sandwich because it was so over spiced and salted it was inedible. Server did not charge her which was good. I think food needs improvement

Just a tad loud for business meetings. Hard to hear and speak when eating at noon, but at 11:30 am it wasn't too loud, so depending on timing, you won't get a quiet spot. Food was good, servers were good, ambience was also good. Will go again in the future.

The ambiance was great! Great plant based selection and the food was amazing. The music was too loud though and for some reason rave music was playing although that wasn’t the vibe in the restaurant which we thought was strange. But Overall I had a great birthday here and I will definitely be back

The restaurant was busy and loud, but not uncomfortably so. The food was good but not spectacular; pretty much what we expected. The service, however, was excellent: friendly, fast, efficient, and accommodating. Overall a good restaurant in a great location near transit, Roy Thompson Hall and Mirvish theatres.

We got there earlier for our reservation and sat down. We were able to grab a appetizer from the happy hour menu. We had just finished it and a drink with the help started moving tables around. Next a large group of 16 loud people sat down. Just ruined our dinner they were so loud! Wouldn’t go back!

Outstanding service as always. Bianca our server was knowledgeable, polite , friendly and speedy as we had a curtain to get to. Food choices always great. I like a burger or sandwich and my husband loves the spicy bowls or seafood. It is always lively and high energy which we particularly like. Looking forward to going again in Spring Summer when the patio will be open. Love it outside too. Please pass on our Thanks to Bianca from Nick and Sandra originally from UK.
