Update May 2022: Manager has informed me that they are discontinuing their gluten free fryer

So far this is the only restaurant I feel safe at. The staff has gone through proper allergy and food intolerance training and actually knew what celiac was/the precautions they must take to avoid cross contamination. They even have a dedicated gluten free and vegan frier for french fries, chickpeas, etc. The staff is so knowledgeable that my server noticed a mistake I made when I accidently ordered something that used a non-gluten free sauce and found me a gluten free alternative before I even had the chance to notice. I would have never realized that I ordered a gluten based sauce if he had not caught my mistake. This was the first time in months I have left a restaurant not feeling sick.

No dedicated fryer but lists their fries and calamari as gluten free despite being fried in the same fryer, you can see into the kitchen and there is very clearly no effort to minimize cross contamination

We were told there is a dedicated gluten free fryer. We were also told gluten free pizzas are cooked separately on a pan. We ate there twice, including pizza, and deep fried dry ribs, cauliflower “wings” and fries. The burgers and gluten free burger buns were awesome. We felt safe and no one got sick.

GF options are limited, but staff are very knowledgeable and aware of cross contamination. They used to have a dedicated fryer but got rid of it for some reason. So fries not safe for celiacs anymore.

I ordered the Wednesday night steak special which came with a 9oz sirloin and two sides. Because of my allium allergy, I chose gluten free fries and a spring salad for only $24. My server Isaac was super accommodating and explained everything about the kitchen for me and the preparation for the food. They seem to have great communication between table to kitchen which I appreciate so much. Unfortunately, there were no gluten free desserts.

Manager stated that their vegan fryer can be used for orders that require no cross contamination. Just so happens that all the vegan fryer items don’t contain gluten. Manger discussed the menu with me and mentioned modifications.

I’ve given 3 stars only bc I should’ve expected them to be super busy on a Friday night and therefore not be “on the ball” about the gluten cross contamination stuff so I can’t rlly blame them for that. I did take away 2 stars because I got two different answers about if they have a gluten free fryer or not so I don’t know who to believe and I had an immediate reaction to a dish listed as gluten free (chances are the reaction was due to gluten exposure but there’s no way to tell for sure). Lastly, when I informed the server I was celiac and explained what that meant, she responded by saying “haha wow you’re life must suck” and scurried away. I wasn’t insulted by the comment, just found it weird. Tje reason why I took a star off was because she didn’t say anything other than commenting how my life sucks, I didn’t feel assured that she understood the seriousness of my condition or really listened to what I was saying.

Love Earl’s because they have a dedicated fryer so that means fries! Yam fries!! The food is pretty good although the price can be a bit high for the quality. Staff is knowledgable or will ask the kitchen to be sure, which I appreciate. During non-covid times the yaletown location can have a waitlist for dinner.

I ordered gluten free chicken tacos with fries as the waiter said there was a separate deep fryer. When it came out the fries were directly touching the regular garlic toast from my mom's order who I was with (not gf). I told the server I can't eat this with it touching as a small amount like that can make me sick so they took it back to remake and came out with a new order 10 minutes later. I asked to speak to the supervisor who apologized. She came back while we were eating and I wanted to double check the fries were gf because they looked slightly coated with something. She said yes they are but it's too late you've already eaten half of them and laughed. Fast forward 2 hours when I am severely vomiting and having diarrhea. Ended up in the hospital. To make it better my identical twin who is also celiac and ordered the same meal also got sick. We went to the hospital together. I am expecting a call back from Earls regarding this situation.

I was a bit wary coming here but the staff were very willing to explain how they keep things gluten free. There aren't a lot of options but I ordered the Santa Fe chicken salad and yam fries and didn't get sick. I asked them to cook the chicken on a piece of foil as it didn't appear that they had a separate grill area for gluten free but I can't tell if they did or not. I did double check multiple times everything was "gluten aware" as they call it and I would be willing to go back.

When I called the hostess had no idea but did go speak to someone in the kitchen. Returned to the phone saying they could accommodate my needs. The online allergen menu says everything may have gluten in it, everything! The in store menu has “ga” for gluten aware next to a small handful of items. I ordered the street tacos with corn tortillas. They were very small, especially compared to the dishes of my nonceliac friends. I did not get sick.

Great experience. They offer a “gluten aware” menu, but when I told them that I was allergic they came back to tell me that what I ordered “might contain” gluten. They offered to let me choose something else, or make my salmon without the seasoning. I ordered it without the seasoning and it was delicious!

Went to Earl’s 10/10/2019 and they have just changed their menu, they no longer offer GF pasta. Had the GF pizza and it was pretty good. The fries are not labeled GF on the menu, asked why and was told because the side dipping sauce was not GF. That’s like saying a Caesar salad isn’t GF because of croutons. 🙄 Had the garlic fries without the sauce and they were totally fine, no issues. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly about it. Miss the pasta but the pizza was good!

I felt there were a few gluten free options for me- but I didn’t feel 100% confident that there was no cross contamination. They are honest about the fact it is “gluten friendly”- so we tried the GF pizza and the gf lobster tostadas (delicious, but a small appetizer portion). I am non symptomatic celiac, so no way of telling if there was cross contamination- but the waitress did inform the chef, and she did seem on top of it as best she could. :|

Went to this location because of previous review. They no longer have the calamari and fish and chips on their menu... At least not in gluten free. We ended up leaving because the prices seemed high and the selection was average at best for gf in a restaurant.

Spoke with server about their gluten aware pizza and prep methods in the kitchen. I was assured they would prep it separately and cook it on a clean pan, not brown it on the stone. I ate half of pizza and then noticed blackened bits on the bottom of the rest of the pizza that could only have come from a dirty pan or from being browned on the pizza stone (I used to cook pizza in our restaurant). I was definitely seriously glutened, as evidenced by my symptoms later that evening and today.
