Our waitress was so lovely... she did not intimidate us to order drinks and made us feel welcome
She was very busy but very efficient. You could have more staff .
Acoustics could be better... very noisy
Excellent meal!

We went to Earl’s before the Royal Alex show. The food was fine but nothing to get excited about. I doubt I would go back because there are so many restaurants to choose from in the area.

The service was very attentive and genuine. The menu has so much choice that it would be difficult for even the pickiest person not to find something yummy to eat. Chose to take clients here for a business dinner. It can be a little on the loud side, so it might not work for all business meetings.

It was our first time there and really enjoyed it! Service was excellent knowledgeable and fast.
Menu choice was large. Drinks were good.
We were there early in the evening so it wasn’t overly busy yet.
Would definitely go back!

The food was great, the service was good.

The Steak and Sushi combination was truly fantastic and my girlfriend's Korean Beef Bibimbap was very good as well (I only tried a bit).

The only thing that wasn't the best was having the doors open allowing the AC to escape on a very hot and humid day, we wanted to escape the humidity only to be in limbo with it.

Overall though, we will be back.

First impression of the restaurant was great! BUT! The service was horrible... My girlfriend and I waited 31 mins before we were greeted by our waitress and offered water. A different waitress offered us water because ours was “looking for a machine”. Something like that should not take 30 mins, nor should it be a reason for our waitress not to greet us and explain the situation. Once we got our actual waitress she never introduced herself until she gave us our check by circling her name. In addition, she completely disregarded the whole situation and failed to mention, address or apologize for her absence and disregard towards our table! A delay of this matter set us back in our schedule and we were late for our show!!! She should have done the above and also offered a form of compensation! The whole experience was rather ruined because of this and a recommendation to our circle would not happen!

I have two comments to share. The first is that the water glasses were filthy. They had spots, debris and lipstick marks on them. Very disgusting. The server did give us new glasses once we pointed this out but it does leave not so appetizing feeling when your dining experience starts out this way. What else was not cleaned properly that we didn't see. When my salad arrived, it was missing the avocado. Again the server had to get the avocado for me. The service was good but the dish washer and kitchen prep people should be spoken to.

Food was great. Had the bacon, cheeseburger and fries.
It was far too loud and could not hear my colleagues.
Soccer was playing but you could not hear anything due to the volume of noise in the restaurant.
Waitress was nice and courteous but did not refill my water once the hour and 1/2 duration and that would have been nice.

I loved the ambiance at Earls! My friends and I had made a reservation but had opted out to their patio - which was amazingly worth it! It got a bit rainy and they provided blankets (so sweet), were very alert in making sure our needs were met and provided great service overall! I had the coconut prawns and which were really tasty and tried a variety of their mix cocktails and beer. Would definitely go back again!

Veggie burgers were surprisingly good.

Music way too loud for chatting - we had met up with friends from Israel whom we hadn't seen for 25 years, so naturally wanted to catch up and chat - the high noise level resulted in us having to shout at one another to make ourselves heard.

Would have liked more choices of entrees for vegetarians, incorporating some protein. We were limited to veggie burgers.
