Service was awesome. Noise was ridiculous. The two big parties next to us were so loud that most of the time we couldn’t even hear each other talking. Food was good but way too salty. Especially the chips with spinach dip.

I love Earls and have been to many out west. This particular Earls, however, is in a mall. When I made the reservation I didn't realize I would actually be watching shoppers stroll past my table through the window that faced an inside hallway -- with stores across that hall. Though it was a step up from a food court, I didn't love thinking I was more "At the mall" than at Earls. Food was as good as other Earls. Great food, nicely presented. And I think the Happy Hour offering is fun. This Square One location may not bother others, but it did me and just want to give a heads up.

Firstly, upon arriving we were told that the restaurant DOES NOT TAKE RESERVATIONS and that she could give us a “random” table. We waited for over 20 minutes for a server to arrive at our table and a table that was seated after us was served before us. We asked for two rounds of drinks, only received one round. Our food was dry and tasteless.

Like that happy hour starts later then other Restaurants.
Food is always amazing, but the server have a way of disappearing, after bringing you your meal , and when you ask for the check , it will take them another 25min to return.

Earls is usually wonderful. I’ve gone many times for business lunches and dinners out. I’m not the type to write a long, whiny review over a couple of mistakes when they weren’t a big enough deal to tell the manager about before we left, buuuut the service and the food could’ve been better this time. Still plan to return again soon!

The restaurant has a most attractive menu with a wide choice of well-prepared dishes. No fast food! The service was most efficient - friendly, attentive and co-operative. The absence of piped music is a definite bonus, allowing for easy conversation among friends. Have been before and will certainly be back., from out of town.

What stood out was that some obvious careful thought had gone into selecting the ingredients for the dishes. Each dish had a fresh, distinctive taste that allowed the main ingredients to shine; unlike some other chain Resteurants where every thing tastes the same.

The waiter took at least half an hour to provide the cheque. The floor manager ended up buying our appetizer and giving us a gift card. It's a no from me

Menu had a great range of selections and food was delicious. Shrimp could have been cooked a bit more - seared is always the best. Mine were not super flavourful.
Patio was fabulous. Server was amazing.

Had a wonderful meal. There was a slight delay in our service due to a misunderstanding between the manager and the server which really wasnt that long, but they gave us a complementary meal as a result. I had definitely waited longer for worse service at other restaurants and was really impressed with how the team at Earls treated us.

Food was well made and served. We went for a lunch experience but could tell the restaurant was decorated and run very well. Lunch service is typically an odd experience as most restaurants run their best for dinner. Overall, not a bad experience.

We had a reservation for 12 PM for lunch, the restaurant was relatively empty. The hostess ushered us to a table near the kitchen. We asked if we can be seated away for the high traffic and smell, her response was let me see if there’s a table available??? Not accommodating and not friendly at all. The waitress took our order and made a mistake on the one drink my wife ordered. The salad lacked finishing salt and a drizzle of dressing it was dry. At the end of our lunch we were charged $25.5 for a glass of wine and not the posted rate of $13.00.
Over all the restaurant was loud.

Way too loud. Is this place a restaurant or a night club? You couldn’t even talk to the person sitting right next to you without yelling in their face. Do not come here if you plan on having a meal and enjoying a friends company

Made my reservation through Open Table. When I identified myself the hostess took us straight to our table. Once seated our server came by quickly and took our drink order and upon her return with our drinks took out meal order. The food came out in within a fair amount of time and tasted great. Both of use enjoyed our meals. Will definitely go back here.
