We order a large soup and they brought us a small, and when they bought the large it was cold, fried was too salty.
Drink was great ✔

The food was good, but not good enough to justify the cost. It was a little on the loud side and the ambiance was okay. I was a little disappointed as I have been to the Earl's downtown Toronto and really enjoyed it. I live in Mississauga so I thought I would try the location in Square One, however, it was a disappointment, it's part of the mall and we were seating by the mall side window, this diminished the ambiance somewhat. I probably won't return, but I will go back to the downtown location as it's location and ambiance is superior.

We were a party of 6 for Mothers Day at noon. We all had brunch items and e all enjoyed our meals. It was a bit noisy but given the day then that is to be expected. The service was really fantastic efficient and we never felt rushed. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Noisy place! Background music too loud. Don’t expect to be able to hold a conversation.
Food good, but one of our party of 4 had to wait an extra 10 minutes on their main. No sensible explanation given.

Earls has always been a favourite of mine. They have good food, great selections, but they're not TOO artisanal - which some places are doing to their detriment. They take great care to ensure your order is right, and if it's not, they go above and beyond to redo it to exact specs.

Our service was really slow. It took forever to get our steaks, and when they arrived they were too charred. We didn't bother to complain because it would have taken forever for them to get back to us anyway. We asked for steak sauce...they brought us a small container of steak sauce instead of the bottle, so we asked for another one. We never got the second order of steak sauce after telling 2 people. Our server could have been nicer. It was also quite loud in there, so we had to pretty much yell to have a conversation and be heard. I was pretty disappointed and would not recommend this restaurant. Service, food, and ambience could use lots of improvement.

It was very very loud, however that's to be expected during the lunch hour. I had the swordfish taco, however the meal was far from hot. I couldn't send it back as I'm diabetic and had already taken my needle, so I had to eat and wouldn't be able to wait. I will also say that $5.50 for a bottle of San Pelligrino is absurd, I ordered 2, I don't normally look at the price of something, but in this case I should have, $11 for 2 bottles of water is insane.

First off we sat in one of those half round booths that had a table that was way too small for a party of 4, we had 3 starter plates and drinks and it could hardly fit on the table, I disliked constantly shuffling the plates and drinks to be able to reach for the food, just wanted to point out, when you have starters that you use your fingers to eat, there should be wet naps to use, instead we had to go to the washroom to clean up, I would expect at least wet napkins at this level.

When the main dish came it was room temperature, I had steak so I didn’t ask for a reheat. Overall the food was great, menu was great, and prices was reasonable.

Not recommended for a family dinner since most of the clientele was mostly young adults and the atmosphere was more catered to that crowd, though I was there with family for my wife’s birthday and it was my first time coming here, I would come again for cocktails.

The place was little bit chilly, especially when the outside door would open...other than that, everything else was very good. Kung Pao chicken had too much sauce and the steak had too much sauce too but the meat was great.

The restaurant looks amazing in the evening and the menu consists of a tasteful selection of international cuisine. The food was quite good, the portions were large and the service was wonderful . The drinks tasted a little watered down but overall it was a nice kinda place for a date night dinner.

Earls is a family favorite. Anytime we want to celebrate an occasion, it is our number one choice. Service is outstanding and food is delicious. The Manager and my waitress were very patient with my father who is vegetarian and was there for the first time. She took the time to explain the dish and when his drink was not to his liking they fixed it for him. No question asked and without a frown.

I was impressed they had an entire 'plant based' section of their menu with vegetarian and vegan options. Their crispy-fried tofu is flavourful (but it's the same tofu they place in all their dishes, whether a Mexican taco or an Asian rice bowl). The seating was comfortable but we found it a little too noisy for a Sunday lunch (the music was very loud). When my dad ordered his noodle dish, our server asked him if he wanted tofu as well (it was a vegetable noodle dish) -- she said that he could get it with or without tofu. He said yes, and then when the bill came our server charged an extra 3.00 for the tofu (the menu did NOT feature tofu as an 'add-on' with a surcharge so the server should have made that clear).

Server Fernando was excellent. Food also tasted great. We were told there was no red or white sangria, only rose, and no beef patties. But the server was upfront and apologetic and it did not taint our experience. Only con was that there was a very strong cigarette smell that wafted to our table and we were seated near the kitchen/bathrooms. This happened 2-3 times. Not sure where the smoke was coming from but it was not pleasant.

Great option while you are in square one. Food is good but we weren't really satisfied with the service. I would like to add that the day we visited they weren't adequately staffed perhaps the reason behind all the delays we faced.
I would definitely return to try more dishes.
