Was excited to bring my mom here as we had travelled from the island. Needless the service was horrible, we ordered chicken fettuccine and when we got our order we had no chicken, had to call over our waitress to tell her, she fixed it, then we never saw her again. Didn’t come check on us no offer of pepper , more water, sat there when we were finished our meal for quite a while before she came and removed our plates and then brought us our bill and then your machine wasn’t working so had to go get another one. Not an experience one should have being there are numerous places I could have taken her. Maybe have more staff with smaller sections and pay attention to your customers. I had told the front desk lady she didn’t really seem to care as I told her we had horrible service and to tell her manager. She looked like a deer in the headlights when I had told her this so we just walked out. Very disappointed to say the least

Dissappointed that you were out of the spinach dip and the spicy tuna roll. Also took quite awhile for our server to come back to the table (probably at least 20 minutes) so we could ask for our bill to pay. Other than that, it was a good experience.

Good experience for a group of 8 with a reservation. Table was a suitable size. Our server was attentive, food and drinks came quickly. Happy hour pricing and options were great. Only area for improvement would be that our table wasn't ready for our reservation time - was about 7 minutes late. It wasn't during a busy time, restaurant was almost empty, so was a bit disappointing. Overall a great experience and we'll be back.

Great location, good food but maybe a few more selections of the classic Brunch Menu. e.g...Crepes? The place is clean and Hostesses were very friendly and smiling all the time. Our server Jordyn was great and she was very attentive to our needs. Will definitely dine here again...Keep up the good work! 5/5...

My wife and I was there to dinner and she had a chicken Sandwich and a salad and I had a Steak with fries; it was awesome. The Service was very friendly. We have made previous a reservation. I highly recommended because it could be really full.

Server left a dirty rag on the backs of one of our chairs. Had to ask for everything: cutlery, plates, dishes to be cleared before dessert, water, and so on. And we were informed that the restaurant was also out of ribs. Experience was less than mediocre, surprising for Earls.

Had made reservations for 6 people, phoned to up that to a party of 8 and they accomodated it with no problems even late the day of. All our guests were from out of country and had never been to an Earl's before and all thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Felt it was a great choice to satisfy all the different types of appetites. Our server Connor was great. Not from Vancouver but would recommend this location.

Found the restaurant on Open Table during a visit to Vancouver. It was very close to our hotel and we are glad it was. Excellent food — Chicken Teriyaki Bowl and Blackened Swordfish Tacos. Great and varied menu. Excellent service. Neat restaurant. We will have to try the Chicago edition of Earl’s soon.

The table that we had reserved ended up being in a place that was filled with families and their kids. The staff worked to get us a table in the lounge and it was super fast and easy, they just transferred us over there. Excellent wait staff, made our dining experience so much more enjoyable. I love this place and look forward to hanging out with my friends more often! AND...it's a nice looking place.

Good tasty food for fair price. Modern industrial look to facility. Music a bit loud, but probably just right for younger crowd. I tried a test dish and it was great. The blonde ale was a bit flat and tasteless. Overall though experience was great and would recommend.

Unfortunately the food was terrible. I had the blackened chicken with potato salad and coleslaw. The potato salad was drenched with mayonnaise, visually I'm surprised that anyone would serve a plate that looked like it did. The chicken wasn't dry however it was exceptionally greasy. The entire plate ended up soggy with warm mayonnaise and grease. I've had this meal a couple of times at other locations and never experienced a plate such as the one I had.

As we all know, it's not cheap to go out for dinner. When you're served a meal like this it's extremely disappointing. Unfortunately I will likely never got to Earls again nor would I recommend their restaurants.

There was a putrid smell equivalent to a smelly rag used to clean the tables. The server stated several other patrons complained of the same smell. It disappeared eventually but lingered for a goo 30+ minutes. Otherwise, a good experience.

The place was very noisy. Very. It took a little longer than usual to get car service but the food service was prompt. The soup starter came with the main entree which was not expected but ok. The clam chowder was excellent. The lobster tail was very good. The Cajun salmon was definitely Cajun... a little too Spivey for our taste and dry. The sirloin steak was good. The serving staff were attentive and probably the best aspect of the evening. It was all good but we probably won’t rush back.

Went for a first date, was a little disappointed that we were not in a booth or by the window as requested. We were very close to the bar so it was louder than I would have liked and at a high top which wasn’t the best, we’re both short people and couldn’t touch the ground.
The food was good, definitely different.
Waaaaay too much ice in the sangria pitcher we ordered. My date ended up with a glass over flowing with ice by the end of the pouring and he had to scoop it out onto his plate to get the fruit at the bottom cause the waitress had already taken the pitcher away.
But the food was good and we had great chemistry so everything else paled in comparison.
