    Food was only decent, service was poor as the server didn’t check on our table for an hour while we were eating. Went here for the first time yesterday and the location is okay but I prefer other locations. Food is overpriced for what you get and the quality. I will choose another restaurant next time.

    Our reservation on July 1st didn't disappoint. The food was excellent - best meal we've had in a while!! Our server, Kenzie, made our night. She was helpful at the start with menu questions, but took it to another level with her wit and charm - even teasing me about cilantro! She was fun and engaged with us while working hard on a busy night. She is a gem and Earls is lucky to have her!! We'll definitely be back!

    Earls never disappoints. The food was great. Although this is the test kitchen and we could have tried new items, we eat at this restaurant often and ordered some favourites we had before. So good. The server we had was so good and attentive. The atmosphere was nice, not too noisy or crowded. Would go again for sure.

    Server was great, lots of ppl checking on us regularly - food arrived very fast as well. Two small issues - I reserved in the dining room, but was seated in the lounge, which was super noisy, so my date and I were half shouting at each other the whole time. Also, was really looking forward to the garlic butter on the steak I ordered, but I think our server misunderstood when I said my date had a lactose intolerance, not me, so mine came without the butter. I’m not good at asking for those kind of things to be changed, so I didn’t say anything, so could have been fixed, but that’s awkward to do

    The food was excellent and the service was superb. However the music was way too LOUD. We could barely hear each other speak and had to constantly repeat ourselves. If it weren’t for the loud music I would give a perfect rating.

    I apologise if I misspell anyone's name, but everybody from the Maitre'D who catered to a seating request, to Anna who walked us to our table, to our server Olivia and her assistant Yasmine, they were all amazing. Their attention to detail, professionalism, and welcoming nature made a great night with friends even better. Thank you to the entire Earls team, you all are simply the best.

    Great service and food! The hostesses and servers were very personable and pleasant. We had a couple dishes off the test menu and a couple from the regular menu. All were perfect! We had to make a couple substitutions to our dishes, and they happily accommodated us with zero issues. Thank you for the great experience! We will be back when in Vancouver again.

    Issues with orders and payments. They would not give my mother credit for ordering 2 minutes after the timing of happy hour - even though she is 89 years old, was there 25 minutes earlier, and they too 22 minutes to get her a readable paper menu. Not happy with that. Also had a mixup with two hamburger orders rather than one, plus gift card over charged and not credited back till 30 minutes after the group had paid and was ready to go. My cousin who was having the birthday - had to clear her own plates to make room for the cake. The food was good. The seafood platter was particularly good. Their candle was like a blowtorch on the cake and spectacular - so that was fun. We brough our own cheesecake. The service staff checked on us regularly. All the orders arrived almost at the same time.

    We did not get waited on fairly compared to other guests. Long wait times for meals and the bill. It took 45 minutes for the bill to arrive at our table. We wanted to leave at 9 but left at 10 due to this. There were larger groups and it was busy so this isn’t a dig at our server, however there were multiple other staff just ignoring us who could’ve done our bill. Or we could’ve been helped first, as we were only two people and would’ve been done quickly. This ruined our night having to sit around for an hour doing nothing. Food was good but we will not be coming back to this location.

    Our server was nice. When I ordered my burger she me asked “fries or salad” for my side, I said “salad” she said “green or Caesar” I said "Caesar" But She could have said “salads are upgrade” otherwise I wouldn’t have gotten the salad. The side salad was so small and the lettuce was welted and drenched in sauce which made it very disappointing and having to pay and extra $3 for that as well was very disappointing. The burger I had was just okay, the lettuce again was welted and tomato on it was soggy. It was very disappointing

    We generally go to Yaletown Earls as live close by but since we were down that side to see a movie, we decided to go to Hornby St, Earls. The food was good except my main course of Cajun salmon with vegetables, which was with broccoli, was under done. A small detail but thought, you should know. The service was excellent.

    We had a 6:00 rez but weren't seated for almost 20 minutes even though there were multiple empty tables. Food we ordered: 3 Spicy tuna tacos to start & share which were tasty but very small portions, each about the size of a ngiri; one of us ordered ribs which were tasty, and the other two tried the Prawn Shroomami off the Test Menu which both of us thought was ok but pretty stingy with the prawns. Our primary server was very sweet and attentive, but was MIA after we got our bill and wanted to pay and leave to catch a movie in time (which we mentioned previously.)
