We had a brunch there. Food is comfortable and creative. The atmosphere is casual and arty. We loved the place.
Great first experience at The Drake Hotel. Originally reserved a table on the patio but it wasn’t open when we arrived. However, it was ok because the main dinning room is beautiful. Food was absolutely delicious! Server was great in recommending a wine to go along with our dinner.
They were able to accommodate our big group at the last minute and our table was ready early!
I made a reservation for brunch on Sunday at the Drake Hotel. I arrived on time and they seated me right away. The reservation was for 10:30 am and but I was surprised the place wasn't packed.
I was recently looking forward to this duck confit dish I had last time I was there, but they had changed up the whole menu. I ended up ordering the eggs benedict which was good! The the brown butter hollandaise was rich and delicious! For those of you who are all about the hashbrowns, they were smashed little potatoes cooked with onions and herbs (not especially crispy).
My friend and I had been busy catching up so our meal took a bit longer than normal. Although our server had checked in with us throughout the meal, she failed to check on us for about half an hour at the end of it so we ended up waiting a while for our bill. But once we signalled to her that we were ready, she brought it right away.
Overall, I would definitely recommend the Drake Hotel for brunch on weekends (try and get a window seat so you can people watch) and I personally will be going back for drinks and other meals!
The restaurant was beautiful and clean! However, I received a call 10 minutes after being seated asking if I was showing up to my reservation...? Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive to refilling our coffees! Not many vegetarian/vegan menu items, nor the option to switch an egg for a tofu scramble/alternative. The coconut chia seed pudding wasn't great, not that it would have been a substantial breakfast anyways. Everyone else enjoyed their food though - I recommend the chicken and waffles for meat-eaters :)
Food was very good but we were ushered to a noisy seating area by the window. We asked to be moved to a more intimate darker setting but were told everything else was reserved. We were there for two and a half hours and those reserved tables were still empty. Our main goal was ambiance first and food second.
Great experience, perfect for a date, great atmosphere
The best part of our visit was the service! Everyone was super nice and very helpful :)
The staff was amazing in accommodating my requests. Food as per usual was right on the mark.
we had the most amazing time! It was my first time and definitely not the last!!!!
The brunch was delicious and the white sangria was amazing! Recommend sitting outside if the weather allows it
The location was a no since it was in a run down area with shady people in the area. It wasn’t main downtown near Eaton centre so that was a let down. The washrooms are single washrooms and so dirty and small. The food was not worth it. There wasn’t much on the menu to bbegin with and the menus were cheap paper. The only thing I liked was the patio setting upstairs other than that. Will never go back here.
Always love the vibe and the attentive service though I'm not sure I'll be back so soon. The latest price increase has put the Drake in a different category that frankly I'm not sure the food is ready for. You are not serving a burger worth $22, nor a Caesar salad worth $24. I know prices are going up, but the Drake of all places should be able to maintain high value.
Birthday lunch with a friend. Nice spot on Patio. Great food, excellent service. Too many patrons stepping off patio to smoke just on the other side of the fence.
thank you. we had a good time. will come again forsure
unfortunately, we had very poor service. food served without utensils. request for utensils went unanswered. had to fetch own.
wine was ordered, not delivered. asked another server about wine, said they would speak to our server, waited another 10 mins.
Food was mediocre. Service very spotty. Waited for coffee during meal, came when meal over. Smoothie ordered late in coming. Gluten free bread too late to be enjoyed with breakfast. Much better breakfasts elsewhere.
Service was great and friendly. Food was delicious. The roasted corn rocked our worlds! Who knew corn could be that good?
Brunch is always great here and we lucked out on blueberry scones. Seems these are everyone's favourite and for good reason.
All around great experience. Love the cafe patio. Never felt rushed to finish up and leave, which is refreshing for Ontario restaurants in general.
Always a great spot when we are visiting Toronto. We had lunch with our family of 8 on a Sunday and everything was delicious. Great spot for us to catch up with our family who lives there, and comfortable enough for our 2.5 y/o. My wife and I enjoyed it so much, we returned that evening for drinks... alone😁
Atmosphere was lacking. Tried too hard to be trendy. Food wasn't memorable. Too expensive for the bland experience.
Too loud - had to yell across the table, and we were only four
Great ambiance and very friendly staff! Food portions were a bit large but delicious!
The manager of the space made myself and my partner feel so special and provided exceptional service. We weren't misgendered once and I can confidently say queer and trans folks will feel good in this space!
The chicken waffles and pancakes are good as always. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because they were out of the blueberry scones at 12pm on a Sunday!
Excellent service , tasty meal, relaxed atmosphere
The staff was really knowledgable and kind. The food was a brand new menu and absolutely delicious! The second floor roof isn't the most notable view but gives you a feeling of still being in the thick of the city but hidden away.
The food and ambiance were on par. But the service was lacking. I feel the staff judged the group based on our looks which in turn created a bad vibe.
Great sangria, amazing cocktails. Gazpacho was delicious
Food was amazing. I ordered the chicken Caesar salad and it was really good. I would highly reccomend this place if you’re taking your friends or family out to dinner or lunch on a hot summer day.
Many of my guests did not like the food. The quality was not in line with the prices. We experienced lack of service and minor issues with our dishes.
Fabulous dinner before walking to BMO field.. was still the “ snack” menu, but thoroughly enjoyed the charcuterie board, cheese and green salad ( the ginger dressing is outstanding!!) wonderful service, will be back!
A great spot for casual dining with upscale dishes. The whole restaurant and cafe was one fluent process. I really enjoyed the quick service and note for my allergy.
Great brunch, fantastic service and the house-made sausages are just yumm! We ordered a Drake Breakfast and Drake Benny and were not disappointed. Time to go soon.
Food quality excellent, staff was quick and attentive -- however -- reservations were made days in advance, and we were seated in the incredibly tightly packed cafe area. There's not enough space here to eat enjoyably, particularly with 16+ tables. The tables did not give staff enough room to comfortably walk between the bar and the table seats. The lounge area, where we've always been seated in the past, was frustratingly empty!
It was great 😊
Great space (sat on the rooftop). Food was good but I believed the salmon to be cold smoked not hot smoked so was disappointed. Waitress was ok, she never smiled, didn’t bring sugar to the table with our lattes, left our finished plates in front of us for 20-25 min. Other than the service was a nice spot for brunch.
Seafood Sunday’s wasn’t worth it - seafood was not fresh. Lobster was mealy, shrimp over cooked, a lot of the shellfish was closed (meaning not fresh). Dessert was good, but overall pretty disappointed.
Fun menu (great food) and really nice staff. Overall had a great experience here and would recommend!
The server was very lovely! The new menu is not my favorite. I loved when you had the Poke option.
a great place to hangout with friends on a Friday night , and meeting new peoples . Great food and great cocktails.
