Friends visiting from out of town.

Server (Jet) was superb - extremely polite and accommodating. Couldn’t ask for a better server.

Restrooms were not to Standard(Locks not working, no soap in Men’s restroom.

We really enjoyed the comfy chairs by the fireplace. Food and service were excellent. I had the blackened chicken and my wife had the California burger. Both were great.

Great food, service (waitress) was not. Might have been the rudest encounter I’ve ever had while dining out.

We ordered burgers and waited for a looong time. My daughter was so hungry for waiting so long.
It is our first visit to Earls Kitchen. Very disappointed about the service. The waiter was so busy and it was hard to find him to ask about when we could get our food.
won't visit again.

It was a birthday. I mentioned it on the app and when the reservation was confirmed over the phone. The gap between appetizer and main course was too long. The waitress was nice but a little too casual on how she addressed her customers. Lots of other choices out there Earl!

Made a reservation and was seated on time, no menus. Waited for about 7 mins, and finally stopped a server, Levi, and asked them to be our waiter since no one even acknowledged we were sitting down. He arranged for water and menus within 10 mins or so. Took our orders. Appys arrived as expected and were good. He asked me about the dressing for my salad when he was delivering our dinner order, ok, never asked me for a second drink, and never delivered the soda waters we did actually get to order, but he tried to charge us for them. My food was mediocre but everyone else seemed to like theirs at our table. #fail

We are regulars. Honestly, we come here for our regular server, Edwin.
The other servers like Nadia, Erica are very nice as well. But Edwin (and previously Jessica) is who we request.

The Happy Hour menu changed which is kind of a bummer.
Please bring back the dry ribs.

The food was mediocre. Our server asked if we would like some bread, we said yes. She charged us for it. I haven't been tricked into "ordering" bread for a long time. I thought that was old school sneakiness. I don't care about the price of the bread, but it was misleading and tacky.

The blackened striploin was overcooked - not good for $38. Service not so good - we had to ask for water glasses after water was delivered. The prior party’s check was left in our booth. Took for ever to pay. Noted birthday celebration in the reservation, but the restaurant did nothing for our son’s birthday.

Had a real nice time at Earl's. Enjoyed the Steak Frites with the 8 oz. Sirloin and my wife enjoyed the Scallop Risotto. Nice service, great seats, to bad the Seahawks won.

Menu had changed since we were here last. The food was way overpriced! Our order was incorrect twice during one meal. The wait staff was very friendly and positive, albeit inexperienced.

Very popular restaurant, so it does get noisy. Menu has a good variety of selections. Our dinners - BBQ ribs and steak fries- were very good. Service is capable & friendly. Only problem was Earl's reporting I didn't make my reservation, but Open Table straightened that out. Notably we got seated right away only because we had a reservation.

We had our anniversary dinner at Earl’s. Everything was spot on! We loved the Leroys crispy ribs. The scallops risotto was tasty with a lemony finish. Our server was friendly and attentive. We’ll definitely be back in the near future.

Our waitress was not personable. She charged us for two blackened spice on our steaks which we didn't order. We didn't notice it until the bill was paid and never saw her again to bring it to her attention. It was an average experience. Nothing horrible and nothing to brag about.

Went there for our 20th anniversary, had a 7pm reservation got there 10min early, they seated right away. Food was hot when it reached the table, drinks were refilled promptly. Great place to go everyone should try Earl's.

The space is fantastic, the service is average, the food is average.
Small plates and utensils had to be requested twice for our appetizers. I guess we were expected to dive in with fingers. Two of us ordered burgers and the waitress actually asked if we wanted utensils... is this place trying to save money on dishwashing?
The burgers were fine, but one of my guests described her dish as “a stretch to call it bibimbap.” She is Korean.
On a positive note: appreciated plant-based options.

Great food and clean atmosphere. Music was loud and thumping. Understandable for a bar but carried over to dining area a bit too loud. Each table folks were yelling at each other. Great staff and attitude

Over priced, cold and mediocre food served by ridiculously rude servers who think they’re so much better than you. Our server literally picked up our plates when we were not even finished. My first drink was over in 2 sips because it was just a glass of ice with a little bit of margarita in it. Go to Joeys or cactus to tavern hall. It’s much better ;

Got the Thai lobster salad and coconut mint margarita and OMG talk about tasty! The flavor was amazing. Only thing I would change is getting the lobster warmed, but that’s just a personal preference and it was still totally good while chilled. The ambiance was very nice and our waitresses were great, friendly and informative with the menu items. Will most certainly be back.

I went to Earl’s Kitchen twice in about 2 weeks . Its very spacious for the prime Bellevue location it is in , its a huge plus point for the restaurant . Food was great . Nice , comfortable sitting place for small as well as big groups however service was very poor . Took 50 mins for apetizers to arrive
Drinks came after apetizers got finished . Wait for the food again.
Owners must consider ramping up the staff and the skill .
