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!

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.

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.

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 .

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Many thanks,

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.
