The atmosphere, service quality, food presentation were highly satisfying, however the octopus dish and burger patties were slightly overcooked but overall it was an amazing experience.
Great service. Appreciated being able to linger on a snowy day. Nice menu options. Undrinkable coffee - an Americano with dishwater over tunes. Steel cut oats tasty but could have been oh so much more if not cold and sticky.
Friday night birthday celebration for my daughter! Great food, great service by John despite how busy it was
Good times as usual
First time going for my fiancé’s birthday. Loved the atmosphere and music. I had the sushi and it was so delicious and very fresh. Friendly staff and punctual service. Thank you!
The service and food was excellent. I can always rely on the Drake for a solid dining experience.
Food could be better. They need to step up the flavour and presentation.
Overall, mediocre experience. Food was well below my expectation, venue is visually pleasing but was loud due to high volume of obnoxious people.
Was expecting Trivia night, but that didn’t happen so I was a bit disappointed; overall it was a great ambience and experience. It was my first time in Toronto, so I wanted to the complete experience of the night.
Great brunch food. Broad selection and well prepared. Lovely waiter. Not rushed at all so a lovely experience.
The Drake is a cool place both spiritually and physically (at least it was today) as our circular back corner table was had a great view of the restaurant but also was caught in a cold downdraft. Service by a steady cascade of staff straddles the middle except for one notably more friendly individuals no cleared the last of our plates.
The food, importantly, made us all happy.
Brunch at the Drake is a treat. Lots of delicious breakfast favourites. The cinnamon buns are baked fresh in a cast-iron pan and are not to be missed. Busy place full of young people enjoying conversing with their friends, but room for a couple of senior citizens too!
Fun New Year’s Eve party
every time I come to the Drake the experience has been amazing! The food is delicious and the service is always above and beyond
I absolutely loved the vibe / the food / the server.....all was GREAT....thank you for making our Christmas Day special and non traditional.....loved it.
My nephew and I enjoyed a lovely brunch on Christmas Day. The pancakes were excellent. I love the room. The place has an elegant, relaxed vibe and the staff were friendly. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed the room wasn't filled. I love being in a restaurant that buzzes, even if it is a relaxing experience. Our waitress let us know it was much busier the year before, so that was interesting. Also, she seemed a bit TOO busy despite the quiet turnout for brunch. Then again, it was Christmas Day. She was attentive - an excellent waitress - just a bit 'not in the moment' for obvious reasons. Overall, I'd go back in a flash!
This restaurant has good atmosphere, but the food's price is fairly high compare to what it is. The Christmas signature dinner is fairly well designed, however it is still not worth the price tag. This is a good venue for a night out as business associates.
Great atmosphere, food & service :) The eggs Benny is great for brunch!
Good times as usual
The food was delicious, as always, and service wonderful. The trivia game, for which we came, was great fun, well organized, the hosts humurous and entertaining. I look forward to another Wednesday night with an interesting meal and a good game to with that.
Took out my niece before a concert
Loved it! Food was scrumptious! Our server was awesome and I love the new decor! Thanks for making our Christmas brunch fun!!!
We are vegan and were blown away by how delicious the veggie burger was! And don’t get me started on the fries. I am literally craving both right now. It is so great to have good vegan options available. We will def be back!
We were guests at the hotel and they had glasses of champagne at our tables to welcome us!
Really loved the ambiance of the room. The music was relevant and just the right volume. Loved the pitcher of mimosas and blueberry scones. But best of all was the glasses of champagne when we arrived which I assume was based on me specifying that our visit was for a birthday celebration -- a very nice touch for my son's special day.
Great food. Good service. Will return again. Very accommodating for toddlers. Awesome that it’s open at 7:30AM on Saturday’s.
Loved everything except the temperature. We were seated in front of the window and it was freezing.
Food excellent. Service too. Loved it.
The Best! Wonderful People, Fabulous Food & Great Vibes!
Service is very friendly, food well prepared. On each occasion that my family and I have visited the food took way too long to come out if the kitchen.
Great food. Service was slow. Really cold by the windows. Very loud room so had to speak really loudly to each other. Great atmosphere.
Amazing food! We ordered a bunch of dishes including sushi to share and absolutely loved ever bite. We also tried the cocktails which were very good, although didn’t knock my socks off. Our waiter was very attentive and and pleasant. We will be back to try the rest of the menu.
Amazing service and great food. Friendly servers all smiling. Had a good time and would definitely return.
Always love 💕 coming to the Drake. The food is excellent and the service amazing. Thank you another great time. Highly recommended 👍🏻👍🏻
I would recommend with a caveat. It was LOUD! The five of us were seated at a very small table and crammed together next to the DJ booth which was super loud and not very “Sunday morning”. Good food server - very nice and efficient. Next time I’d phone to see if there was a DJ and if so I’d plan around it.
DJ should take requests especially if its the same genre and time period.
Food was great. Possibly the best Brussel Sprouts I've ever had. The restaurant decor and vibe is elegant and trendy. Would recommend!
Great food, awesome server, cool vibe! I’ve been wanting to check this place out for years...highly recommend!
The food was delicious and the now covered sky lounge is a really nice upstairs alternative to the downstairs room. It's cozy and relatively quiet and the bar is really nice. I had the steak frites and happily the steak was as rare as I requested and really did melt in my mouth. The frites were salty and and delicious and in terms of meals it was great.
Sadly the restrooms left a lot to be desired in their lack of toilet paper and / or paper towel and while their being tiny doesn't bother me .. it should be noted that the size will in fact make their general state - especially if not perfect - more obvious. I took a peak at the schedule on the door for when they were last checked and it seemed that a check may have been overdue. It wasn't crazy busy at that point but I am a firm believer that ALL toilet/ restroom areas should be spotless and always stocked with the necessities.
It's too bad that the state of the restrooms impacted what was otherwise an excellent experience.
Drake is a go to spot for us for brunch! Love that you can reserve it.
Normally service is impeccable at the Drake- unfortunately for us, this past Sunday was not the case. Our waiter seemed to forget that we were even there. Had to ask other servers to get stuff we needed, like condiments and our bill. Would’ve stayed longer if the service had been better!
