Everything was great. Can’t beat the view and the people are wonderful. Foos is very good. A bit expensive for some things. Will be back.

Overall a pleasant experience . The knowledge and character of the staff was great and the setting lovely.
The fish ( trout) was lovely on two orders but the steak on two orders was somewhat tough and done a bit more then ordered.
The appetizers were all good. The portion on the trout dinner was very small.

Great location! Interesting menu, however significantly overpriced. Good selection of wine and local craft beer. Blueberry scones with homemade jam were a hit

My daughter and I spend two days at the Inn and had a fantastic time. It all started with the special welcome at reception when our host showed us around all the amenities at the Inn so we felt right at home. The Inn is very quaint but also super chic and cool. Special note was I left my blazer behind in the room and the hotel offered to ship it to the Drake in Toronto free of charge - above and beyond!

We celebrated a birthday and closed off a great weekend in PEC with a delicious brunch at the Drake. I would highly recommend adding this to you “must do” list!

We were underwhelmed with our dining experience here. The staff were unprofessional, the menu uninspired, and the wine list (by the glass at least) was lacking. I think the Mexican restaurant on the Main Street is a real winner in comparison, and sadly, I would not return to The Drake.

Excellent venue, very different very hip, but honestly $13.00 for a mimosa. Little over the top don’t you think. And no I am not cheap nor and I am short of cash. But come on. Let’s be realistic. That price is a bit off. But sadly despite your overprices I will be back.

Everyone told us it was a must do, but we were really underwhelmed, especially after all the hype. The restaurant was nice, and the view was beautiful, if you are looking for a trendy vibe than this may be the place for you. The food was good, but nothing special. Was a little disappointed when the server highly recommended an item they had never tried, it was misleading and ended up being a disappointment because they lacked the proper details.

Friendly and casual ambience. A beautiful setting on Lake Ontario. The service was prompt and the food was delicious. I enjoyed the Drake Benny, eggs Benedict, and my husband enjoyed the Chicken and Waffles. There was plenty of food and it was served hot and promptly.
We have been several times for both brunch and dinner and always enjoy going back.

The service and food was great, the view of the lake was fantastic and the ambiance of the overall restaurant was super. Greeted by multiple (friendly) staff members upon arrival; and even had the General Manager (Scott) speak to us as we were leaving to ask us how everything was and tell us more about the restaurant and the INN and what they offer. Overall it is a great location and we will definitely visit again.

Amazing table service. And the room is just great.
Steaks shouldn’t be hard to do, and especially shouldn’t be cold. While they recooked new steaks, the result was now hot, but tough. Too tough for a $50 steak.
Net: Unlucky entree choice for us at this otherwise great place.

We had a fabulous time, our server was amazing and food was delicious. Family friendly and we spent some time in the ‘play’ room at the end. Everything was great until the end when I put $5 the photo booth and it didn’t work, which was fine, but the lady at the front desk was very passive aggressive about me asking to get my money back. Overall a great experience, just too bad that 1 person can put a damper on the whole experience.

We visited the Drake for the first time ever, and we were very impressed it lived up to our expectations! The service was wonderful, the dining experience was a long and enjoyable one. The food was out of this world fantastic! My husband had the burger, and I had the Scallops and Grits. We enjoyed the assortment of breads as an appetizer, and had the Chocolate for desert! The waiter answered our questions and made recommendations for our meals.
We will definitely be back in the summer!

Excellent service. Felt like we got the best seat in the house when we booked through open table. Could not say enough good things. The view of Lake Ontario was unbelievable. We were offered a tour of the premises - it is one of the most unique, artistic spaces we’ve seen. Staff extremely professional and knowledgeable. Brunch there is a must.

Go for an experience, to see the art and especially for the view. I think the "hash" that came with my eggs benedict ($18) was a freezer mix from a grocery store. Dishware was sent back, not clean. Expected more.

Food was great and the setting is amazing but the prices are ridiculous. $9 for a bowl of fires and $13 if you also want some rosemary and pecorino sprinkled on top - come on.

Was very underwhelmed, went to drake to celebrate and found that we had no service, was seated at the worst possible table right beside where dirty dishes stacked and interac machines kept, so very noisy. The meal itself overpriced and bland. Felt like the service was almost condescending...even though I live close to the Drake I will not return.

No control over the temperature in the room and there was a humming noise from the roof, like that of a large exhaust fan, maybe from the kitchen below, other than that great room and amenities.

Ordered Irish Coffee to sit outside by the fireplace with, was not advised by the server that they did not have whipped cream, received the drinks without it, had we have known we may have selected another beverage - disappointing.

Check-in staff were amazing and very helpful as was our waiter at dinner.

Great dinner - good sized portions so one does not feel ripped off as in many Toronto restaurants. Prices are reasonable for the quality and inexpensive related to quantity. The outdoor roasted chicken is superb - as is steak tartar. Steak looked good based on what we saw on other tables.

Drinks are a little bit prices but wine is in line with other establishments.

Staff is excellent in every conceivable way. Down to earth, friendly, knowledgeable - what else can one say?

Wine list is good with good selection of County wines.

Very comfortable - one can really relax in this place. Kick back and enjoy the experience. Everything top Toronto restaurants offer without the stress and pretensions from the place or staff.

No question we will be back.
