It took 20 minutes to be seated with a reservation for a patio that wasn’t full. Then took 40 minutes for a pretty standard breakfast to reach our table. Obviously something going on today.

Our server was so friendly and attentive. The food was fantastic! However, the bartender was very slow making my mother’s drink and seemed to be doing so on purpose as mine came up with a few minutes.

Food was delicious. The scones are teeny compared to before, which is a shame because they are really good. Vaccination passports were checked at the door, but not with our ID’s so I’m concerned that people with fake vaccination cards could potentially get in. Overall, good experience.

Drake is one of those places you look forward to going to because you know it’ll be great. This time NOT so much. The wait to get our table was long, the time it took to get our food was long … we were comped house sparkling wine but being sat in the cafe and not the usual experience made for a below average night.

We had a great time at the Drake hotel. We were a group of 6 and everything we ate was delicious! Our waitress was very nice and service was fast. From the moment we were greeted at the door (by the most attentive bouncer we’ve met) to the time we left (when a different bouncer took the time to ask about our evening and take our picture), our experience was fantastic!

Character restaurant in the historic Drake hotel in the heart of downtown Toronto. The ambiance was upbeat with great music and comfortable seating. The brunch menu could use a few more options for those looking for a more substantial lunch, as opposed to breakfast. The breakfast choices were good and we all had the Drake breakfast, that was hearty and very filling almost a full English! Cool little brunch spot in an eclectic part of town that’s easy to get to, lots of street parking and overall good ambiance.

Clean bathroom was the highlight. Menu not great. Steak tartare was very disappointing. Oysters was good. Mignonette was very overpowering. Left to try another spot.

I have had this meal before on a previous “thanks giving” at the drake. This time it tasted like the remains from yesterday .. it was not fresh as supposed to be or as i have experienced it there before. Service was good.

They had one server for the entire venue. The poorest service I ever had. We order a bottle of wine to have WITH OUR MEAL and we could see the server running around and checking the other tables while we were already eating, we waited for over 15 min for the bottle but she never brought it. The server came to our table around 20 min later, when we had already ate our meals, saying that she would be bringing the wine shortly. We asked to cancel it. Terrible experience.

Food was great, drinks were great, oysters were overpriced. Our server was not great, and our food took a really long time. By the end our table was overrun by wasps and we literally ran out of there after paying the bill LOL

Service very good and food is good. Coffee is excellent. Hotel is under construction/renovation which limits overall ambience.

Okay atmosphere and good customer service but the food fell short. Our lobster mac and cheese was quite salty and the veggie burger wasn't anything special. The mushroom pate was pretty good but it was a lot of pate for one chip. Not sure if it was an off night in the kitchen/willing to give it another try.

The food was good however the portions were small. Steak frites tasted great but the steaks were very small. Also the lobster mac & cheese was not worth $30 taste wise of portion size. Service was excellent. Great server.
