    Great atmosphere but slightly disappointed overall. Seated 15 minutes after reservation time. This isn’t a big deal, but they then brought the wrong food for my husband. We were celebrating his birthday and the hostess acknowledge this but server never did. When we asked about his birthday (as we were paying), she said we should have received a free dessert. Never offered to bring it. Just a lackluster experience.

    Had a reservation for 6 people on the roof. We were seated immediately. Our server Jessica was first-rate. The drinks and food arrived promptly. The food was delicious. I had the crab cakes, which are as good as the hype. Others had various steaks (it was Wednesday steak night), the salmon bowl or the ravioli. Everyone was happy. We shared the cauliflower, truffle fries, dry ribs, and spinach cheese dip. And shared the sticky toffee pudding and key lime pie for dessert. Loved the atmosphere on the roof, and can't say enough good things about the service we received from Jessica. Highly recommended on all counts.

    I'm a BIG fan of Earl's, but I'm second guessing coming back after my reservation last night. My friend and I waited 30 minutes after our reservation started to be seated along with 6 other groups with reservations! It felt like we were all being ignored. We sat in the outdoor roof area, which we love, but this was the second time in a row that I felt uneasy in the environment. Last time, there were the bigger spiders I've ever seen coming from the plants (I know it's inevitable, but only to some extent) and would not stop inching towards our food/drinks, so I wish the plants weren't hugging the tables to avoid this. Last night, there were mice running all over the outdoor deck - thankfully, we were at a hightop, but many weren't. Everything felt like a waiting game - after we were finally seated, there was only one set of silverware and a water glass, and we waited about 10 minutes after we received the water and received the second set. We asked for straws for our cocktails, and that took another 10 minutes. The food is amazing. We always get the sirloin, seasonal vegetable and mashed potato Wednesday deal, but the atmosphere outside might make last night's our last sadly, especially for how expensive everything is.

    The food that we ordered came out and was incorrect. The waiter never checked in so we just ate it, which wasn’t a problem. The waiter did not check on us for about an hour. We tried to pay at the bar, but our check was incorrect. Definitely the worst service I have ever gotten, but the food and vibes were great!

    The atmosphere and vibe of this place is AMAZING! We had what we believe to be a new waitress who didnt really seem to know what she was doing. She didnt even know she was our waitress until we asked the hostess for help. She didnt ask us if we wanted a cocktail or anything other than water which was strange. Two out of the three meals came out together and then the third one came out 10 min later and the chicken was NOT cooked all the way. They took it back and took it off the bill. Service and experience was not the best but the food and atmosphere was AMAZING!

    It was my birthday and it was such a nice night. I can’t remember our servers name but she was outstanding, made sure that the night was perfect! The food was amazing, drinks too, everything was perfect absolutely no complaints. We had our dinner in the patio and it was a bit humid but our server opened up the window section and that was such a nice gesture. Everything was great!

    We had a lot of problems, which I was very surprised since before this I have always had a pleasant time at Earl's. I was hoping for a nice time with my graduate school classmates, but instead got a very chaotic dining experience. Problem #1: My friends and I were seated on the Patio. It started raining pretty soon after we got seated, and the blinds of the windows behind our table were not closing due to technical difficulties. So when we requested to get moved to a different table, our server tried moving us to a smaller table that would definitely not have fit all of us (there was 6 of us). We tried asking for a bigger table, but none of the servers were attentive to us and we ended up moving ourselves to an empty table that seemed large enough for all of us. I understand that servers have their own sections and tips are important, but the whole situation was so chaotic and we got little assistance in trying to eat our meal without getting rained on. Problem #2: One of my friend's salmon was undercooked, so when we asked someone who looked like a manager if the kitchen could cook the salmon more thoroughly, he gave us an attitude and started asking which temperature my friend wants the salmon cooked in. She said she just wanted the fish fully cooked, but the manager kept asking her which temperature, which she was unsure how to answer. It felt like he was treating my friend like someone who does not know how a salmon should be cooked. It was unnecessary and rude. Problem #3: The restaurant completely messed up our bill at the end. They charged us for a beer that they did not have (so we had ordered a glass of wine instead), charged us twice for the salmon dish my friend sent back to the kitchen because it was undercooked, and charged us extra for a side that we did not order. In addition, our server did not asked us how much ounce (they have three options) of wine we wanted, and automatically charged us for the most expensive one. Very disappointed....

    Had high hopes for this outing but ehhh. The hostesses were friendly, the ambiance was beautiful. But our waitress was obnoxious and had halitosis. When our orders came out - crispy sushi roll, jumbo lump crab cake, salmon with double mashed potatoes- my friends was wrong and he let her know to which she replied yeah I can see but I just owe you an extra side of mashed potatoes. Amazing that she thought that was ok to even say. Nevertheless a new order came out just as he asked and she was kind of condescending about it. Furthermore when our drinks arrived, she harbored over our drinks taking our orders instead of moving them into our vicinity where we could drink them without her breathing over them. Needless to say the sushi was not what I expected, it fell apart and I didn’t feel like arguing with the waitress about the quality of the food or her lack of manners. I paid the bill and we left. Definitely won’t be returning to this location.

    We sat outside on the smaller patio (adjacent to the larger patio that is covered). It was a lovely experience. Some issues with bees that were really just looking for a water source (they kept landing in my water glass not the food). Service was great. Food expensive but well prepared.

    Everything was exceptional with the exception of the hostess on the lower level. I arrived 6 minutes before my reservation time and I wanted to go upstairs to wait and she insisted I wait downstairs and that I would not be seated before my reservation time. I said that's fine but would prefer to go upstairs. Then she asked me, "what's the difference if I wait downstairs or upstairs"...I just found her a little rude. Besides that the place and food is great!

    Food and service was amazing as always but I made a reservation 3 days in advance for THE PATIO specifically because it gave me the option to choose, but once I get there the hostess says that the patio is full that my reservation will be for inside So what’s the point of giving you the option to reserve the patio if they’re not going to respect your reservation and give your table away. MAKES NO SENSE.

    Worst experience ever. Nearly 50 minutes after placing our food had yet to arrive. Long time to wait for burgers. Our server acted surprised though she had checked in on us several times since getting us set up with drinks. We asked to check out as we could no longer wait. We paid for our drinks and that was it. One apology and that was it. A complete lack of customer service or caring for the customer experience. Very disappointed.

    Earl's is a popular spot to gather, especially on the patio and on a great weather day. Lots of people, "energy", and club music that I know is pretty much expected but makes it very difficult to have a conversation even across the table. That said, the food and presentation are really excellent, which is why we will return, probably often. Because the place was so busy (even on a Tuesday evening), I think the kitchen & wait service was slower than would be ideal.

    Some of our guests had such a poor experience with the server, they left the restaurant before the food was served. We and the other guests decided to stay. Our food didn’t come for 30 more minutes, only when our other guests told the server they’d leave too if it didn’t arrive soon, and was cold. We worked hard to find a place that would accommodate our small group who had gathered from around the country on our final night in Boston. Very disappointing.
