We celebrated my retirement last night at Erling’s and, when I let that info slip, I was rewarded with a complimentary glass of sparkling Pinot Noir from Prince Edward County. We’ve always found special touches like this and true hospitality at Erling’s and that’s why...More

Ate at Erlings yesterday for the first time. Went with a friend before a knitting drop in on Bank Street nearby. We both had the salad which was excellent. Casual friendly atmosphere and service. Will be back!

Visited Erling's Variety for Sunday brunch! Was greeted by friendly staff, both from the open kitchen and server. Eggs Benedict was with bison merguez sausage, on a cornmeal waffle and was delicious. Great little place with ambience and cool decor. Love the local food and...More

Anniversary dinner on a eerily quiet Thursday night proved the perfect time to visit. We sampled 6 dishes and split a dessert. Each dish was impeccably delivered with nicely paired platings (not just the item ordered) and it was hard to pick a favourite. With...More
