Awkward
By paul345 of vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, August 21, 2009 - 3:14am [Dine in]

I came here with my wife on the weekend. The hostesses at the door were attractive, young, and friendly, as expected from an earls. The service however, ended at the door. Someone kept pushing us to go into V lounge upstairs, but we were uninterested but after some heavy awkward pestering, we went upstairs to shut them up. We got upstairs, no wonder we were pushed up here, there was no one there. The lounge mood and loud music setting wasn't really what me and my 50 year old wife were looking for, clearly they just wanted someone, ANYONE to go up there and make it look busy. The management should be able to READ THEIR guests.

We are "regulars" at Earls Paramount, and we thought we would give this place a shot, but it was just a weird first impression.

We came back down stairs and were sat in the dining room. 15 minutes later, no one had greeted us. Eventually someone came to our table and asked if we were helped, we noticed her at the door and she was clearly just a hostess. She took our order and served our table the entire time. We could tell she was not a real waitress, but we had a blast. This place is clearly understaffed. Overall it was a OK dining experience, but we could have done without the coercion to "experience V".

Not up to speed

Food was cold, main course arrived moments after the starters, waiter poured white wine into my (quarter full) water glass and then disappeared leaving another server to attend to us. Yes wine was replaced but overall not a good experience. May get better once they have sorted out their teething problems?

Unimpressed and Unacceptable
By TheFinalWord of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, August 6, 2009 - 1:18am [Dine in]

Being an avid Earls visitor through many years, I was ecstatic to learn the company had rolled open new doors in the Yaletown area. The other night I decided to gallivant over to this location for some delicious, delectable food and some fantastic drinks (which this establishment is known for serving). However, my visit and overall experience was atrocious at best.

First and foremost, the waitress took forever to bring our table the drinks we had ordered. On a Tuesday night with only a handful of customers, one would think such a feat would be possible within 5 minutes. Not the case. The food was bland and room temperature. I was far from pleased. I wanted to talk to the manager about quality control of the food, but by some miracle he had the night off.

The showstopper was at the end of the night when I wanted to leave the circus-act now known as Earls, my waitress was missing in action. I sat around for 15 minutes waiting for this ghost of an individual to appear. Failing to show up, I went to the front of the restaurant to converse with another waitress and asked if I could pay my bill. She shrewdly responded with, "Am I your waitress?!".

Consequently, such actions do get forgiven but not forgotten. I won't be returning to this location any time soon. The Yaletown Brewing Company next door is a much better decision with its amazing atmosphere, friendly servers and exquisite food.
