I had the Santa fe salad. It was soggy :( too much dressing I suppose. Disappointing considering the price @$19.50.

We really enjoyed the food. We were celebrating a 60th birthday and the birthday card from the restaurant was a nice touch although a free dessert would have been nice. It was very loud in the dining room and difficult to hear conversation at the table.

It would be nice if you even give a slice of cake for someone's birthday...

For a normal fancy lunch or dinner, this place is beautiful and fairly affordable.

The overall service was good but i did not like the presentation of the food. We ordered Chilli chicken but it was too sweet instead of spicy.

Drinks were good and overall ambiance was great.

Server was awesome!!! He was prompt, interactive and friendly. Hope to have him again as our server because we will be back :-) Great to have made it in time for Happy Hour. The food was plentiful and delicious and varied for a good price.

The waitress forgot about our table of 5 so it took a long time before we got to order. The food came quickly however they forgot to bring one of the sides we ordered and it was difficult to get the waitresses attention again for this. Also, they don’t do anything for birthdays which most other restaurants do. Other Earls are better than this location

Our waitress, Jo, was cheerful and helpful. Both our lunch choices were excellent, as was the wine. Seated on the patio next to University Avenue was, at times, a bit loud. Suggest choosing a patio table a bit farther away from the King & University intersection...

This is the third time in two months I have been to Earls and I asked for a capuchino and the machine wasn’t working. Perhaps you need a new machine.

Great location, right in the middle of things. The checkin experience was a bit chaotic as there were renovations going on: 4 flustered people behind the desk. Lively bar area and great table service.

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.

service was a bit slow... but excellent (thanks for the drink refil… you read my mind!)
Food was tasty and well presented, but maybe a bit lack-luster and unfulfilling relative to price/expectations.

location is amazing and the space is beautiful... but it is super busy, so be warned.

Was good. Only criticism was time available online and then when we arrived, lots of tables available at a later reservation time which was our preference

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.

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!

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.
