Four of us went to this restaurant last Monday with a kid of six years old. Earls doesn't do a kids' menu, you have to order a full meal or they share a plate with their parents. We asked for ice cream afterwards but were told they only serve gelato. Clearly a place for yuppies. Kids not welcome.

The service was terrible. The girl who served us first of all told us there was no room inside for five. Not true, as I pointed out. Once we were seated she didn't tell us where to find the wine or beer menu (we hadn't been to Earls in years) - one indented in the back of the menu, the other in a small book called Sips. She put the kid's Coke right on the edge of the table where he cd knock it over (luckily I moved it). She clearly didn't feel like serving that night.

The meal itself was fine - juicy steak and great fries. Forget the rest.

Three of us went to the Dalhousie location for dinner. We had the fish taco's, the burger plate and the fish and chips. All the food was excellent, fresh and well presented. The service was prompt and pleasant. Although the "eye candy" waitresses serve in both the restaurant and the bar area, I think they are primarily a draw for the sports bar! Because of the open design we did find it got quite noisy.

Earl's is the place we usually go for a predictable meal in Calgary...or even travelling in other cities. It's medium upscale and not cheap. The food is fresh and well prepared and presented. Service is always pleasant. It's been a favorite of ours for years. The Dalhousie branch is our preferred location.

I've had their Chicken Tacos twice lately and must say they are delicious. The two tortillas are small, loaded with salad and plenty of seasoned chicken pieces. A slice of lime and extra sauce comes with it. This is a party in your mouth sensation - not spicy hot, but a medium touch of zing that is most satisfying.

Although the restaurant is quite wide open, there's enough space between tables to give the feeling of privacy. Lots of windows give it a light, airy feeling. And in the summer that patio will probably be well utilized.

Staff are friendly and down to earth, but well dressed in predominately black outfits.

My wife and I lunch here once a month or so. The burgers are the best I've had. The servers are always well dressed and professional. Looking forward to sitting on the renovated patio next spring!
