Delicious!
Submitted Tuesday, April 14, 2009 - 5:38am [Dine in]

Seven of us went here for dinner on Saturday night. (3 were kids) Didn't wait long for a table. Sushi rolls were on the small side but very good. Tempura was delicious . . . seaweed salad was not what we were expecting!! Didn't like it. The set dinners were also on the very small side. Value . . . not worth the amount we paid. $60 for three of us and still hungry afterwards.
All in all a nice place to dine. Will go back.

Not the best I've been to!
Submitted Tuesday, April 7, 2009 - 1:35pm [Dine in]

Had lunch here on Sunday. We did go to Milestone's first but there was a 30 minute wait, so walked to Earl's instead and no one waiting. Actually, there were only three other tables!
As usual, the young girls trying to act older and trying to dress less - not very appealing at all. (If they were pretty girls, it would be decent but not when you're 16 trying to look like 25!)
Our server was nice. Too overbearing at some points.
It's always expensive at Earl's so the value is so-so. My daughter and I shared a SMALL bowl of Clam Chowder ($8) and an even smaller pizza ($13). Our friends had a Ceasar salad ($8) and a cheeseburger ($14). The french fries was a very scant amount and VERY, VERY salty!
When we walked in, there was a table on its side which seemed odd for a restaurant like Earl's. It could have been moved away so it made the restaurant look very cheap.
Next time, I think I will wait for 30 minutes at Milestone's instead of venturing over here!

Submitted Tuesday, April 7, 2009 - 1:20pm [Dine in]

Food was good but have had better elsewhere. It was not busy that night - they only had one server - but it took a while to get the food. When the food finally came, it was dumped on the table without telling us which was what. Most places tell you what it is!
Don't try to use more than ONE entertainment coupon. We were sitting there waiting for over half an hour, for our bill because he couldn't figure out how to input three coupons. We had to get our book to show him that we are allowed to use three.
Won't be back there. Too small portions and too slow.

Best St. Honore cake!!!
Submitted Tuesday, April 7, 2009 - 1:12pm [Dine in]

I ordered a St. Honore cake for my sister last week and it was sooo unbelievable!! The best I've ever had!!! I was able to order more puffs at a additional cost. It was sooo fresh and soo delicious! The other baked goods look just as delicious too.
Unfortunately, the lady that served us was sooooo unbelievablely slow. She was nice but took forever to box the cake, tie it up, ring our cake up plus the two tarts, the two cookies and a delicious olive bun.
Can't wait to go back there!

Yummy Chicken Sandwich!
Submitted Friday, March 27, 2009 - 8:45pm [Dine in]

I went here for dinner with my best friend earlier this week. We shared our dinners. I ordered the Mediterranean Linguini and my friend ordered the Grilled Chicken and Baked Brie Ciabatta. Both were absolutely delicious!!! My friend ordered the Chocolate Sticky Toffee Pudding for desssert. It was a huge portion . . . too huge if you've already had dinner!!! It would have been nice if it was half the size and charged $5 for it rather than the size it was and was charged $7.50. Also, why didn't the Linguini come with Garlic Bread?? Why do we have to pay for it?? Pasta should always come with some sort of bread to sop up the delicious sauce!!!
Love the food at Earl's but too pricey to always go there!
Great service too. It was not busy at all. The hockey game was on at the bar, but not noisy. I've never been to this one but wish I have. It's so nice! Will definitely go back but not soon!

. . . . meh
Submitted Saturday, October 18, 2008 - 12:48am [Dine in]

The delivery of the food was incredible! Never saw such a large platter . . . but I found the placement of each thing kinda strange. It was a little bit here of that, and little bit here of this, and over here the samething as way over there.
I arrived late, so everything was cold, but the taste was very good. So I can imagine what it would be like hot.
Service was non existent. The restaurant wasn't that busy but had to ask for everything. At one point I went around the corner to get change, and there she was folding napkins!!!! Not that it is a problem doing that, but we were not the only ones wanting something!!!!
I may go back . . I may not.
My portion for the platter, including the tip was $15.

Better than McDonalds!
Submitted Monday, July 14, 2008 - 4:35pm [Dine in]

We had two salads and a soup for lunch here today. Hubby had a larger salad that he picked his own, and our daughter wanted a small ceasar salad so had a grand time picking stuff to put in her container. The soup was Creamy Tomato with Basil and that was very, very tasty!!! I don't know where the previous reviewer got the soup from but we only paid $3.99 for a small, which is really a LARGE!!
Everything looked and tasted fresh. Only complaint is the croutons were too hard!!
Good deal to eat at Capers instead of going to a fast food place and paying the same amount!!

Still had to wait for cake . . .
Submitted Tuesday, July 1, 2008 - 3:41am [Dine in]

Ordered a Tiramisu cake Friday afternoon and was guaranteed that it would be ready by 3PM. Also, ordered it with NO alcohol.

When we arrived to pick it up, they couldn't find my order. Looked for it everywhere. Looked in their little box, and there it was. They said because I didn't want any alcohol, it would just take a few minutes longer. This was 4PM, was suppose to be ready for pick up at 3PM. And I know the cake wasn't ready and the guy just slapped it together.

The cake still tasted yummy, but was not happy that I had to wait 15 minutes for it. No apology. Made to feel that it was my fault that the cake wasn't ready!! Found the Asian lady who boxed the cake to be "sorta" rude. Found the place to be "unclean". Don't think I will go back here again.

Loved this place!
Submitted Tuesday, July 1, 2008 - 3:34am [Dine in]

A group of us (3 kids & 5 adults) went here for dinner on Friday night. Was not busy at all and the girl at the front, handed us a 10% off coupon. (She really should try the food if she is promoting it!!)
We had the Desi Plattter (mild), Okra (medium), Eggplant (mild) and Butter Chicken (medium), 2 orders of the basmati rice as well as plain and Garlic Naan. Everything was delicious!!! The kids LOVED the platter and was well worth the $23. Everything had so much flavour. I can't wait to go back for the eggplant and the platter!!
The bill split between five adults with 4 beer, was $25/person. Well worth the money!!

Awesome Buffet!
Submitted Friday, June 6, 2008 - 1:15pm [Dine in]

Had dinner here last night and it was soooo good!

Both my friend and I decided to have the West Coast Buffet. Previous times that we've been at this restaurant, the buffet didn't look too appetizing but it did last night.
The Seafood Chowder was full of seafood and was absolutely delicious! The Tomatoes with Bocconcin Cheese was sooo flavourful and delicious as were the other salads. Smoked Salmon and Gravalax melted in your mouth. Prawns was ok but my friend LOVED them! I didn't try the crab legs. Clams were good too.
The dessert buffet, that was included with the meal, was good. Not as good as it usually is though. Fruit platter sucked the big one!! My friend, who loves Rice Pudding, LOVED her pudding. The Chocolate Mousse, was room temperature. I like my mousse cold, so it was only ok. They had the mousse in a tiny glass goblet which was GREAT, as it wasn't too much or too little!!! The little cream puffs were absolutely delicious!!! I wanted to try to the Creme Caramel, but it was too large. Pieces of cakes that were available were cut too big - about 6 different types!

The hostess was very unfriendly. The restaurant was not full, and there were numerous tables set for four, but she originally sat us at a table for two, and I asked to be moved to a table for four. After rolling her eyes, she had to go to the front to make sure none of the tables were reserved for someone!!! Give me a break!!!! Thus the low rating of the service.

Our server was OK, not too friendly but not nasty at all. Could have picked it up a notch!

The room was very clean, and with the new chairs since we were there last, made the place look very, very nice!!

Overall, it was a good meal and with the Entertainment coupon, it was a super deal!!! Definitely will go back!!!

Very Good Fish & Chips
Submitted Monday, May 26, 2008 - 10:10pm [Dine in]

Six of us went for the all you can eat Fish and Chips for dinner tonight. Asked for crispy fries, and they came crispy. The batter for the fish was really, really good, but only ate one piece with the batter, and took off the batter for the other two pieces. Very good!! Great service. Refilled pop with no problem. Waitress had a smile on her face all the time!

Interesting Place
Submitted Saturday, April 26, 2008 - 3:31am [Dine in]

Had dinner with my Mom, daughter, niece and her son last night. Portions were a good size. We ordered House Special Chow Mein, which was delicious. Lots of crunchy and soft noodles. Plenty of topping too. Also had Pork Bones and Sweet Corn Hot Pot. Didn't look very appetizing but was really good! Lots of flavour. The third dish was a bit disappointing because it wasn't what we expected. It was the Seafood on Rice Baked with Cheese. Didn't see any cheese on top. Still, it had an OK taste to it. Also had bubble tea. Pricey for what you get. Would definitely go back and try some other dishes. Oh, the soup that came with the noodle and rice dish, was a cream of corn soup and that was delicious too. Not too much that it would fill you up.

Have gone to this place a few times in the past couple of months. Food is very cheap, delicious and quick. Service is OK. Always have to ask for more tea and the bill. The few times we've been there, has not been busy. Free parking in the back.

Nice Valentine Dinner for the Family
Submitted Friday, February 15, 2008 - 8:04pm [Dine in]

Instead of a romantic dinner for two, we had a family dinner, four of us, at OSF. We thought there may be a loooong wait, but nope . . it was finding parking!!
Salad looked a bit wilted but tasted ok. We each had a spaghetti dinner with different sauces. Ice cream was a bit too melted for me.
Service was ok. Waitress brought our main entree out when we were still eating our salad. She was kind enough to take it back until we were finished with the salad. Took a long time to get drink refills and hot water for tea.
All in all, we had a nice time. And our hungry bellies were filled with good food.

Dine Out
Submitted Thursday, January 24, 2008 - 10:49pm [Dine in]

First restaurant for Dine Out this year for us.

Appetizer:
Husband had the soup Roasted Corn and Potato Chowder and it was delicious! I had the salad and was very yummy!

Entree:
Husband had the steak. He said it was very good. I tried a small piece and I found it not juicy enough. I had the Wild Mushroom Ravioli and is was very, very yummy!! Not enough though!!

Dessert:
Husband had the Brownie. That was a joke as it was a tiny, tiny, tiny piece. I swear it was an inch by an inch!!! I had the cheesecake and it was just ok, not bad but just ok. And because of the dessert (it completes the meal!), the food rating is only a 2.

The place seemed like a cool place to hang out. Tables are too close together. The sweet potato fries looked very delicious (at another table!). So did the hamburgers. Will probably go back and try the menu!

Dine Out
Submitted Thursday, January 24, 2008 - 10:34pm [Dine in]

We've been to this restaurant for Dine Out ever since Dine Out started!! So quite disappointed with the menu this year.
Appetizer:
We all had either the Ceasar Salad or the Salad with Shrimp. Both were pretty good. Large portions.
Entree:
Most of us had the Pork Schnitzel. Rather dry and not much sauce for it. My piece was smaller compared to the other plates, and was very, very dry. My husband had the vegetarian lasagna and he said it was very good. Didn't really look appetizing to me though!!
Dessert:
Mousse was very good and the Creme Caramel was ok. My Mom's CC tasted way better than the one I had.
Food was very inconsistent, eventhough five of us had the same meal, all the plates looked different!!
My daughter had the fish and chips off the kids menu, and I wished I ordered that instead!!
Eventhough it is $15, I don't think it is worth the money to go there for Dine Out. Will go back for the regular menu.
Watch out for the hotel parking. The parking attendant says one thing, and the restaurant says something else!!! Finally worked it out with the hotel front desk!!

Great Dine Out!!
Submitted Monday, January 21, 2008 - 10:02pm [Dine in]

What a great place to eat!! There was 7 of us eating (3 kids and 4 adults). Kids ordered the kids pizza of the kids menu. They got to go to a kitchen and make their own pizza! It was great!!! No other kids but the three!! They put on what they wanted on their pizza!!! They had sooo much fun doing it and it looked so delicious!
The adults:
Appetizer - My husband ordered the potato leek soup but ran out so had the bruschetta, as well as myself and my friend's husband and it was really, really good. My friend had the fresh basil and blackberry salad - really good.
Entree - I had the pasta special of the day and it was awesome! Delicious blue cheese sauce. My husband had the BBQ Chicken pizza and loved it. My friend had the seafood pizza and loved it. And her husband had the Basil and Bocconcini pizza and loved it. Kids pizza were awesome too!!
Dessert - 1 brownie - great; 2 cheesecake - good and the phyllo cup with mixed berries and vanilla ice cream - great!
Service was great, never felt rushed. Drinks were refilled without asking. I can't wait to go back and try it again!! Highly recommend this place and very, very family oriented. Small play area for kids!! If you do bring kids, don't forget your camera for when they go make their own pizza!

Dine Out
Submitted Monday, January 21, 2008 - 3:28am [Dine in]

Went here on a Friday night expecting it to be very busy, and it wasn't. The servers seemed quite nice and efficient.
Appetizer: Salad portions were very small - nothing outstanding just your regular Ceasar salad with bottled dressing or the Garden Salad.
Main: Ribs were delicious and got quite a few ribs. The brisket was very tasty. But the pulled pork was very yucky. Too spicy and too tough to chew. Very small portion (Thank goodness . . . I guess!!) for the pulled pork. Delicious coleslaw and vegetables for the side. Generous toppings for the baked potatoes. But not much for french fries. Also ordered the poutine which was very, very tasty and HOT throughout!! Yum.
Dessert: Both were delicious - apple pie and Pecan tart!!
Overall: Most of us said we will go back to try the other things on the menu!
Just don't try the pulled pork!!!

Charge for hot water???
Submitted Friday, January 11, 2008 - 1:58am [Dine in]

Hmmm . . . where should I start!!!
Food - My friend had the Chicken Parmigiana which came with 1 small roasted potato cut in half, 3 stalks of asparagus and 2 pieces of carrots. Tasty but very boring looking platter.
I had the Penne Pesto Pollo. Decent size and very tasty. Found it too grass green for me.
Tasty bread with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
We also shared Bocconcini & Tomato Salad. Probably the best I ever had. The Bocconcini was so fresh and soooooo tasty. Just salivating thinking about it!!!
Service was okay. No one came to ask how our meals were. We had to ask for hot water. Oh yeah, they charge for hot water!! I wouldn't mind paying for it if it was mentioned when we first ordered it but to be charged . . came off the tip!
Ambiance was very good. They were playing music from the 50's - 60's - Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra etc. Very comfortable sitting area.
We used our Entertainment Card so great deal for the meals. Will probably go back because the food was good but just lacking in service.

What happened?
Submitted Thursday, December 20, 2007 - 6:23pm [Dine in]

Today, went there for lunch. The restaurant was not even half full. The hostess who seated us gave us the look of disgust when we didn't have reservations. Reminder, the restaurant was half full. Didn't give us an option of sitting inside or on the patio. When we got upstairs and she took us out, it was windy and eventhough there were heat lamps, still rather cold. I'm sure the blankets would have helped, but I'm not going to sit there holding my hair so it doesn't blow in my face through lunch. Another disgusted look on the hostess face when we requested to sit inside. Her comment was that people prefer to sit out here because of the view. I'm from Vancouver, I can see the view whenever I want!!!
Our waiter came and took our drink order fairly fast but that was about it. He didn't come back to ask if we wanted more water, more pop, how our food was or anything. He had a large table to serve (at least 14 people if not more) BUT he walked by our table at least four times and each time he looked the other way. The food took almost an hour to get to us . . remember the restaurant was half full. All we ordered was the Linguine which was luke warm and tasteless and the Oyster burger which was good. My sister was not going to send it back as we did not want to wait another hour for our food.
Awhile after we finished our meals, the waiter came and said, "I guess you liked everything because it's all gone." We didn't comment, because it was no use.
No service - no tip and that's too bad because it's the holiday season.
As for the hostess, I don't think she smiled once!! She should also be more presentable - be tidier in her dress and hair. I also saw her take people upstairs and then a minute later, come back down.
Nice location, great feel to the place but service and food could be better. Will we go back - probably. But there are too many great restaurants in Vancouver to waste our money at a mediocre one.
