I had dinner with my two adult children and my sister after seeing the Saturday matinee of Ain't Too Proud. We thoroughly enjoyed the dinner. Everyone was happy with their menu choice. The service was helpful and professional. The bar was accommodating in making me a whiskey sour with Jack Daniels instead of rye and the two people who opted for wine with their meal had no complaints.

Love the Tuesday night half price bottle of wine perk. Also like on the same night that sushi rolls are 3.00 off. We always try to go on a Tuesday for these reasons.

Server was nice but not very efficient. We ordered pan bread which we never received. The server didn't recall that we had ordered the bread. When our meals were brought we asked about the bread and he said "oh, didn't you get it?" Well, who else would bring it to us other than him?? Asked for extra au jus for braised ribs and was halfway through the meal before it was received. Asked for glass of ice and server walked by our table 4 times after our request before actually bringing to us.

The clam chowder was really good, the shrimp appetizer did not have enough pineapple flavour, the salad was so-so, the bread boring, the sweet potato fries were OK. Overall too expensive for what we got.

First time here. Overall good experience. It was my birthday, and kind of wish they gave you a little birthday treat. Regardless, food was amazing for both me and the person I had dinner with. Collectively we had the blackened steak, garlic fries, yam fries, and their new vegan dragon roll. I didn't really like the dessert. Pumpkin pie was severed really cold and should have been warmed. Wasn't a fan of the texture or taste and I normally love pumpkin pie. Partner enjoyed the chocolate Toffee pudding. Good serving size for the value of money paid. Server was good, and checked on our table regularly. I would definitely come here again.

Great location close to theaters. Menu was varied with a lot of good choices. Short Ribs were excellent, while salmon (blackened) was a bit over cooked and dry).
Wine selection good but a bit overpriced. Fun ambience with great service.

Went to the Earl’s Kitchen for our last meal in Toronto. Food was very good. I had medium rare steak which was nicely cooked and my wife enjoyed a burger. Waitress was efficient and I didn’t feel we had to wait longer than necessary. There was a buzz in the building which was good but not too distracting.

Good food and we loved our reserved table. Our server was attentive and suggested the Brunch menu. It was just prior to noon so all brunch items were $9.00. Thanks for the suggestion.
It is a great location for pre-performance meals. Will definitely dine there again.

There was a mix up in terms of who was our waitress and we got served after a party that came after us got served first. We were not happy but another waitress saw our expressions and tended to us with full hospitality. That corrected all wrongs.

Food was great. Can get noisy here but I mentioned it was for a date via Open Table and they sat us in a quiet space. Way to go with attention to detail.

Value for money was not outstanding. Had the salmon; found it dry. Had the server come back to tell us the dish she had specifically recommended was actually not available and then stood by awkwardly while I had to pick something else. Too many options were heavy and /or spicy.
