I went to the earls last night and when I ask the waitress for the suggestion of drinks. She replied she is not gonna serve drinks to us because she thought we alteady had some drinks. But we didn’t have a single drop of alcohol. Then we didn’t wanna stay there for a second because we didn’t go there for just food. This was the worst experience ever at any restaurant. They wasted our time because we did reservation and they did this to us.

We have been to this location couple of time. But yesterday it wasn’t very busy as other days and we didn’t receive the service we usually have. They never brought us water, we have to asked for it and took a long time to come to our table to ask for our drinks. The attitude of or service wasn’t the best one, sometimes “fake nice” and sometimes like not caring at all. The worst thing is that we invited a friends that were visiting and we wanted to take them somewhere nice and with a good service, totally wasn’t how we usually are treated

I books a standard table however they first took as to a high top at the bar which is not what we booked or wanted. I did get a table in the end. I was disappointed with the corkage charge at $25. a bottle which seems a bit high seeing they did not have a wine on the list that my wife liked! We did call the restaurant three time to find out the cost a head of time however we could not get though to a person to find out the cost for corkage.

Christmas eve day was likely not the time to go. Service was pretty good but the food left much to be desired. Half was cold or undercooked, and my steak was tough. Pretty expensive meal for the quality. :( I'll try again on another day and resubmit my review.

I went for brunch for the first time at this location. I ordered the prawn Benedict and my friend ordered regular eggs Benedict. Both came out five minutes after we ordered, which seemed oddly quick. They were both cold but the potatoes were warm. The server seemed like she was ignoring our table so we had to flag her down finally to let her know. She didn't apologize for the cold food but said she would take care of it. A few minutes later another lady came over who didn't introduce herself but I assume she was a manager. She also didn't apologize for the cold food but said we had a choice of heating them up or getting them remade. We opted for remade. About 15 min later they arrived, and were no warmer and in fact the potatoes were less warm this time. I gave up on sending them back as it seemed pointless. It's obvious they have the food ready made sitting under a heat lamp because if it was made fresh it would be hot. The server seemed inexperienced and never checked in. We had to ask repeatedly for a teaspoon. The worst brunch experience!
