Earls Kitchen + Bar - Willow Park - Calgary
When we ordered our meals, the server remembered to ask each person whether they have any allergy concerns. All three of our party had really tasty, well-presented meals (the Caesar salad topped with grilled salmon, Santa Fe Chicken Salad and Chicken Hunan Kung Pao noodle bowl), and this is the norm for Earls restaurants. Come to think of it, we have never had a server at Earls that has been anything but attentive and personable. Seems that thy are well-chosen, well-trained and never given an excessive number of tables to serve. Also, while we were enjoying a glass of wine (the house red and white wines are both very nice selections) before ordering, one member of our party remarked that she has a friend whose daughter works at an Earls restaurant and that the girl loves to eat at the restaurant herself. Doesn’t that say it all? When a server enjoys eating at the restaurant where they work, food quality, cleanliness and observation of Food Safe practices are obviously excellent. Well done, Earls!
New Year’s Eve dinner with family.
Thank you for the 5 star review!
Brandon was a fantastic server and food was great!
Thank you for the great review, and we agree that Brandon is fantastic :) We will make sure to pass along the great feedback!
Great food, awesome service and an overall great experience.
Hi Danielle, Thank you for the great review! We'd love to know who your server was so we can give them the proper recognition, so if you could reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know it would be fantastic :)
Earls is starting to give in to the “poke bowls” and the “gluten free” this and that so the menu was not as interesting as it used to be. So because of that we chose chicken tacos and the butter chicken both were mediocre. The true thing saving this meal was the Christmas time gingerbread cake, an Earls classic and truly delicious. The staff are friendly and professional I have never had poor service at any Earls. The menu just screamed hipster DB.......you know what I mean.
Hi Sherri, Thank you for your review. Earls always tries to stay current and ahead of the curve with new menu items, without sacrificing the integrity of our offerings. It would be appreciated to be able to chat with you directly about this, so it would be great if you could reach out to me at email@example.com
Location is using a new vendor / supplier of fish for fish and chips. May / may not be gluten free. Kitchen was not sure as new fish supplier. Fish and Chips were dried out and lacked taste. Server (without us asking) comped the meal (huge thanks). Won't order fish at this location again.
Hi Judy, Thank you for your review, and I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your food.

Very good experience today at lunch.
Thank you for the great review!
This was the first visit where the order was not screwed up. However, I ordered a vodka tonic and was advised that there is an up charge for tonic water, which seems to be ridiculous to me. I will stick with tap water next time, if Earls is going to nickel and dime the flavour out of my experience .
Hi Drew, Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that you didn't have a great experience, and I would love the opportunity to make it up to you. It would be greatly appreciated if you could reach out to me at email@example.com to chat about your experience. I look forward to hearing from you.
Had the power bowl with grilled shrimp. It was very undercooked. I ate one shrimp and server did not even ask if everythin
We had a very nice evening. The food was good and the service was efficient. Unfortunately my son's birthday was not acknowledged, which surprised me since I had stated the occasion on the on-line reservation. Oh, well, we picked up a cake on our way home and celebrated when we got home.
Hi Smitty, I'm glad you had a nice evening, and I apologize that the birthday wasn't acknowledged from your online reservation. I'd love the opportunity to chat with you about your visit, so it would be greatly appreciated if you could reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We done every week, as we love the happy hour and the ability to customize our order to Keto!!! Dakota is amazing and we appreciate always feeling like we are welcome!!!
Hi John, Thank you for the great review. We're glad you found some items that fit into your diet, and we agree that Dakota is awesome! We look forward to seeing you again soon :)
Service was excellent!
Thank you for the great review!
Always love to go to Earls. We have been coming here for many years as we grew up in the area. This time however was a tough experience. Chicken slider appetizers came on a really stale bread so was not enjoyable at all, Kids liked their chicken wings though. After finishing our appetizers our waiter came back and had to re-take our main dish orders as he forgot to ring in our original order which we had put in 30 minutes prior. Made for a long night and no effort was made to make up for the mistake.
Perhaps the first time we left Earls with a sour taste in our mouth!
Hello, Thank you for taking the time to send us this feedback - we never like to hear that our guests left feeling unhappy with their food or service. We would love the opportunity to discuss this further with you and make things right. Would you please email email@example.com at your earliest convenience.
I have ordered the same meal in several other locations (crispy tofu bowl) and was really looking forward to it however this meal was extremely lackluster in both presentation and flavor. Lacked freshness and veggies. It was mostly rice. Was disappointed.
Hi Iris, I'm very sorry about the quality of food you received on your visit, and I'd love the chance to speak with you to make things right. If you could please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org it would be greatly appreciated.
Earls was a great place to meet my aunt and uncle for lunch!
Thank you for the great review!
I love this location, especially on a warm summer evening. You can take in the scene of a bustling MacLeod on the patio, or relax inside.
As usual, we had a great time. Happy hour is a good deal. Our server was super!
Thank you for the great review :) We're glad you enjoyed our happy hour and had great service. We'd love to know who your server was so we can give them the proper recognition. If you wouldn't mind reaching out to me to let me know it would be awesome! email@example.com
Love 1/2 price wine Tuesdays, makes the value terrific. The waitress was fabulous. The food was mediocre. Order Salmon Zen Bowl, and the salmon was way over cooked. The rest really was just okay, more preference, I just didn't enjoy the bowl itself and wished I had ordered something else. Won't stop me from coming as typically I find it very good, and good value, I think that particular item and the cook of the salmon was not to my tastes.
Hi Linda, We're glad you enjoyed our 1/2 priced bottles of wine and had great service last Tuesday :) I wanted to apologize about the quality of food you received, and we'd love to make it up to you. It would be appreciated if you could reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to hear from you !
It was my Mom’s 89th Birthday. She really enjoyed her time at Earl’s. Our server, Israel was outstanding; so sweet and kind to my Mom. Our meal too, was very good.
Hi Lori, Thank you for thinking of us to host your Mother's birthday, and we are glad she enjoyed her visit! We agree that Israel is outstanding, so we will make sure we give him some recognition for a job well done!
We enjoyed our get together with another couple. The food was excellently prepared and the service was attentive without being disruptive. However, the noise level was extremely high and therefore conversation was very difficult even though we were in a booth tucked away in a corner. We probably would have been better for conversation-sake outside; however, the weather was somewhat cool when we arrived. This is probably my most favorite Earls location for aesthetics and food prep.
Hi Vern, Thank you for the great review. We are glad you enjoyed your meals and had great service. Please let me know next time you are coming in and we can make sure we find the quietest spot for your group. Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon! My email address is email@example.com
Because our friend has leg problems we had to move twice and the staff was outstanding in helping us
Hi Jim, Thank you for the review. W'ere glad that you had some staff to assist in moving your friend. Next time you'd like to come in, please let me know and I can have your table of choice ready for you! firstname.lastname@example.org

Josh was fantastic thanks
Hi John, Thank you for the great review and we are glad you enjoyed your visit. We will pass along the kind words to Josh!
Our server went above and beyond - exceptional service
Thank you for the great review. We're glad you enjoyed your visit, and we'd love to know who your server was so we can give them the proper recognition! Feel free to email me at email@example.com
Great place to meet for food and drinks. Large selection of both.
Hi Colleen, I'm glad you enjoyed your recent visit and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Love the brunch happy hour.
We enjoyed the food and service. However, the restaurant was quite noisy - perhaps because the reservation was for 1800.
Everything was great as usual.
We will be back again....hopefully the rain will stay away and we can enjoy the patio.
Great place...this was my first time there. Food was amazing and the was just as amazingly great.
Our recent experience at Earl's (Macleod Tr.) was beyond amazing...& then some. From the new Manager, Dan, right down to the waitress, Cassandra (18 year old, Cassie) & the beautiful young ladies that greeted us at the very front & took us to our reserved booth - everything was extremely well handled. Everyone was unbelievably courteous & it made for a very enjoyable evening.
We will definitely be back soon.
Candy & Mike Schacter
Thanks for the amazing review Candy & Mike. We loved serving you and hope to see you back soon!
I had lunch with two friends from work. We had a pleasant meal on the patio. Our server was friendly and efficient. I particularly enjoyed the tortilla soup as it had a nice kick to it.
I have been going to earls in Calgary since their arrival in the 80s. Whenever I return to Calgary I make a point of visiting. They have never failed to deliver quality food and good service.
We had to ask for someone to take our order after waiting 20 minutes, we had to ask for salt and pepper after the meal was delivered and they forgot to bring us the side dish we ordered.
Happy hour was enjoyable as ever. I tried the new cucumber gin cocktail which was very refreshing. I also had the coconut prawns as an appetizer. It comes with a tasty dipping sauce. The service was great as usual. Friendly and efficient but not hovering. Next time - the patio!
I’ve been to this Earls & to the other Earls many a time. I can’t tell u how disappointed I was when my Blackened Caesar Salad arrived. Being w/ friends I haven’t seen in a very long time, I didn’t want to start explaining & arguing w/ a waitress, Chef or a Manager. The salad was half full, the chicken was three strips & there was 2 croutons. The side bread was the same, as every other time. Since this is the only meal I eat when dining at Earls, I know the size it should be - especially for the price.
Again, very disappointing, b/c it must have been done as a ‘lunch’ rush. The usual excuse “it was weighed” & “measured” doesn’t cut it.
Great food, amazing patio and an awesome happy hour! Only downfall was a 20 minute wait for being greeted by a server. We enjoyed the patio during this time, but it was not busy so poor service made it less enjoyable.
Food is great but portion sizing is very inconsistent
Food was absolutely delicious. Perfect proportions. However the menu is quite small so limited selection made it hard to decide what to eat. But what was ordered was great:)
I’ve been here a few times but they really did a great job with their Mother’s Day brunch. Great menu and service and everything was half off. I can’t wait to go back
Great food, good variety, fun atmosphere and nice daily specials, but, smaller portions with a higher price tag.
