It’s my sons birthday today, we had reservations and we arrived earlier than expected and they were able to seat us. The food was delicious, great portions for the money, friendly attentive staff and my sons dessert was on the house. Highly recommend!!

Great experience. We had a wonderful and helpful server. Food was delicious and hot! Restaurant was a bit noisy making it difficult to carry on a conversation.

From start to finish it was top notch! Our table was ready but we asked to move to one in the back because my mother has difficulty hearing and everyone was super accommodating. Our food was perfect, best burger I’ve had in years! Thank you!

Great happy hour deals! Wasnt a busy night so was disappointed with our server. She wasnt very attentive and didnt take our food order until we flagged her down. Food took awhile to get there and took some more time to get our bills.

Good but did not like the tips level on the credit card payment by starting at 16% then 18% then I believe 20 or 25. Why start at 16% most unusual and not 15%

Went to celebrate birthday and watch the Raptors vs the Bucks. Great location in the downtown core. Happy hour specials were great prices and great food and drinks. Our server, Celine, was awesome and tended to our needs promptly and professionally while maintaining her warm and friendly personality. Thanks Celine.

Earls food has really gone downhill. Buffalo cauliflower was swimming in grease and mushy batter, coconut prawns ok at best, mini pizza was the only thing that was ok. Service was extremely slow. Best part was the beer. Used to go a couple times a month to Earls but last year it started going downhill and now its at the bootom of the hill. Won't be back

good service, very friendly helpful waitstaff. There were 5 of us all having different meals - include gluten free, dairy free and vegetarian. We all had very good food.

We asked for the music to be turned down a little and it was with no issues. Very comfortable seating. We would all go back.

Earls is my favorite restaurant here in Victoria. The day that I did the reservation was a celebration. They selected the best table at the restaurant for us and that was amazing! Thank you Earls for the excellent time that I had with all my friends... By the way: The Salmon Bowl was delicious!

We booked the private dining area for a small surprise party. From 4:30 to 7:00. Mostly drinks and appies - all on one tab. We brought a cake and the server very graciously provided additional plates, cutlery and napkins for serving the cake. Because it was the private dining area the noise level was a bit better for conversation. Will definitely book there again for other office functions.

I was so pleased with my experiencr at Earls. I had oringinally booked for a group of 20, and our group increased to 35 only 1 hour before our reservation. The staff were so helpful and friendly and were ready to accommodate all of us when we arrived. The service was excellent and everyone’s orders were taking in a timely fashion, all food was correctly delivered, food and drinks were constantly checked on and at the end the billing was easy and organized. I appreciated that our server did not apply an automatic gratuity (which I know they could have ) and our group was happy to leave higher tips as a result. Thank you so much and we will definitely be back! (Also bonus points for having a delicious vegan menu!! I love the tofu tacos!)

Went for a group office lunch and was able to pre-order meals in advance which saved a heap of time and effort for both us and the kitchen! Food came exactly on time and as ordered and everyone enjoyed their meals immensely. We'll come again the next time we need to book a group gathering!

Apart from our table not be ready at the scheduled time, the service was great, the waiter put up with us, children included and was patient.

Got potatoes when i specifically asked for none, due to allergies, i would def still recommend to friends cuz of the waiter....

Very loud atmosphere, had to raise our voices to speak. Order was wrong and server did not offer to fix it. I know I should have insisted but that’s not me. I just let them know, hoping they would offer. Waitress was very nice

We were so shocked when one of our guests ordered a gin and tonic and the waiter said it would be extra for tonic!!! Never never heard of that might want to consider getting Schweppes tonic wasn’t a good start to the evening actually felt sorry for the waiter too tired of everything costing extra!!
