Sorry, to go against the reviews, but I was vastly dissappointed & not impressed with the food here AND once you factor in the prices, I would NOT go back again.
Having just ate at the sister restaurant, Blue Water last week which gives me clearer standard to compare them with.
First of all, service/ambience was good, restaurant was full, wait staff was curteous, knowlegable & prompt and nothing bad to say about them. However, that's where the praises stop.
I ordered the bolognese pasta for $27 and left restaurant vastly dissappointed. Taste & portion size simply didn't pass. Sauce was bland, had plain ingredients & little cold (obviously, someone just "nuked it" warm) and I had about 6 mouth fulls of pasta and dish was gone...WTF?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not about giant sized portions, in fact I laugh at the 5 star giving Anton's crowd., but for $27, I can go to pretty much any restaurant and get top ingredients with stomach filling portions. To make a long story short, I CAN make a better pasta than the restaurant and that shouldn't be the case.
Ex. #2 my friend ordered the bone in rib eye, again, dissappointing, portions, presentation was good, but the actual quality, taste & searing of the steak cannot even match $10 cheaper KEG steak.
Perhaps, we ordered the wrong items, there were many tables with the seafood ice platters and people seem to be enjoying them.
I would have been happier eating at Earls...at least they don't try to sell themselves as highend.
