Wine glass was very dirty - water marks, waitress said leftover sangria but it looked like a lipstick mark. All we started with was a glass of wine. Service terribly slow. Took about 15 minutes to take our order with 5 minutes left in happy hour. Our waitress said she was heading home and then we had no one looking after us. Asked the manager to put the Stanley cup hockey game on, never came on. I like Earls and I enjoy this location because if’s convenient to my home and office, but this experience was extremely disappointing. We didn’t get to ordering food, so I cannot comment on that. Food in the past has been good.

I ordered the Lobster + Prawn Ravioli. The taste was pretty good, can have a bit more lobster and prawn meat for the price.

We ate twice this week at Earl's on Hornby. Been here before but never wrote a review. This is their test kitchen and the new dishes I tried were the crab cake as well as the ahi tuna with avacado. Both were amazing! Their staff truly care and are well trained and love what they do. Love their menu and we will be back! Thankyou Rihanna!!

A little pricey for some dishes but most of their dishes you can’t go wrong with. Interesting, different things on the menu compared to other Earls locations since they’re a test kitchen. Nice that you can check and compare different location menus online. Sometimes loud during regular dining hours and the music can be loud at night but that’s to be expected or maybe I’m just an old lady who’s sensitive to sound.

We went there for happy hour around 3pm. The variety for drink selection is good, service is great and not as noisy too. However, are pizza is burned and crust tasted bitter because of the burned dough. We also ordered the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich which over fried and mostly breading. Overall, 3/5

Host was very rude when calling ahead on the phone. Staff were fine but not the most pleasant. Watched our drinks get brought to wrong table twice and bring wrong drinks to our table. Waitress was nice but did not regularly come to table. We got charged full price for happy hour items also. Food was lovely though. Seated very close to other tables even though lots of empty tables in restaurant - covid concern and tables next to us very loud. Will not return. Earls on robson and broadway very good though.

We loved the table, it was perfect for a party of 6. The music was on the loud side a little bit - was hard to talk with others than the person sat right beside me.
Service was excellent, food was outstanding. Stake was the winner for me (with truffle butter) and the lobster and prawn ravioli too.
We've had a nice chocolaty cake as we've had a birthday to celebrate - forgot the name of it but it was great to share!

Many empty tables, but a hostess in a pink shirt decided it was time for us to leave. we had ordered a beer and it was still full and untouched, and she told us we have 15 minutes to leave because our table had been reserved by another guest.

I was very impressed with the constant cleaning of the restaurant during our time spent there.
All the staff wearing masks made us feel very safe as well.
The food was phenomenal and we got to try out so many new dishes that we hope will end up on the regular menu.
Service was phenomenal! The server and manager made some wonderful suggestions on food and drink items.
We will definitely be back!

The service that we received was quite horrible in my opinion. It took more than 10 minutes for someone to come over and greet us after we had been seated. The service was super slow, the server seemed to be uninterested.

Excellent service. Food is great. Our food server was very professional and pleasant to talk with an excellent knowledge of the menu. He helped us chose which appetizer to order that will coordinate with our main entree. The restaurant is so clean and classy.

The ribs and warmed potato salad was amazing, coleslaw ok. Hot wings overpriced for the amount. Ambience a bit stark and dark for my liking. Server was great but too busy so service not as prompt as could have been.

The service was poor. From the time I was seated to the arrival of my drink took over 1/2 hour. The food was decent but not great. The noise level of other patrons was excessive.

I ordered a pizza and it was thinner than usual. But the staff made an apology for that and explained what was happened. We got another pizza later and satisfied with her responding.
I was very happy with the service by staff.

Earls is doing very well - felt safe - even when a young person was standing and cheating with another table the waiter told him he could not do this and had to return to his table - they are vigilant ! Good experience overall !

The waitress was super friendly! Don't recall her name, but she was very polite and trying to keep the physical interaction to a minimum.
The food was as usual.
What I found outstanding was the payment system. We used the Ready Pay, and it was just the best system ever! So easy, so user friendly.
