The food is a bit inconsistent (although much better than it used to be) but its a great option for an outdoor patio on Queen West. Service is friendly and drinks are great.

This is definitely the best Covid dining experience we have had. The patio upstairs is beautiful and we were ensconced in our own "plexi glass booth". The server was great. The food was great. We stayed on a Sunday afternoon for the 2 hours (12-2) and had a great Sunday brunch. Highly recommend.

This is the best service I have received in Toronto hands down. Trust me I have gone to so many high end restaurants. Even in Covid, the service was exceptional; I can’t even fault anything. The staff went above and beyond, extremely clean, so professional, so accommodating, willing to go above and beyond, called me to check on me. I don’t know how long this hotel/ restaurant has been in business but I know for sure they are definitely here to stay forever. Sincerely I lack words to say thank you for making my day special. Please don’t even second guess, you’ll enjoy everything. It worths more than I spent. Thank you

The burger is classic but delicious (though my cheese wasn't melted enough). The fries were great and the server was very happy to bring spicy mayo for them, and to serve teh burger with both fries and salad.

Food is horrible since co-vid. Stale bread, small portions, limited menu $244 for 5 people.
No cushions on seats too low for the table.

Just terrible. Would not recommend.

Plus they called me 2 times the day I made reservation.

And then they called the day of to tell me the upper patio I’d reserved was closed. Perhaps try and mention that as a possibility the first two times you call me.

Way too much ice in the old fashioned. By the time I got it it was extremely watered down. I doubt there was even 2oz of alcohol in there and tasted more like water. The charcuterie board was lame, and the steak tartare was bland. Very overpriced.

Would be nice if you could make a reservation for a specific patio. I wouldn’t have bothered making a reservation or even going if I had known that I wasn’t going to be able to sit on the rooftop.

The Drake Lower patio is a west end neighborhood staple and it was great to get back and hang out and feel some normalcy again. Thanks to the staff and especially the servers who wear masks as that must be tough during a shift.

The Drake usually meets expectations: this visit was an exception. Host licked fingers while pulling paper menus. No QR code menu option. Missing sanitizer at tables. Breakfast plate did not separate/contain baked beans resulting in all other foods becoming soggy with sauce. Meat on breakfast sausages under-cooked slightly.
Great server & service.

This place is okay but not what I was expecting, it is certainly not worth the hype. The service was fine, but the servers were not friendly or energised. Drinks were simply dumped on the table. The cocktail menu only offers the basic cocktails (nothing unusual or different) which were well made but not very exciting or different.

I also thought that I had specifically booked the rooftop patio for drinks for my husband's birthday. On arrival we were told that you can only book the rooftop for 6+ guests. I wasn't made aware of this at the time of booking so it was quite disappointing when we got there.

We asked to move to a table in the shade and were made to feel unreasonable for asking to switch and we were told that the patio is 'extremely busy'. I understand extra cleaning is required at this time, which takes longer, but there were only 4 tables taken in the entire place for the duration of our visit.

Overall it was okay but I wouldn't go here specifically. There are so many more places in the area with much friendlier staff, more varied drinks and a better atmosphere.

Went for brunch and had the eggs Benny.The ham under the eggs was 99 percent fat which is gross. My friend asked for bacon to replace her fatty ham but by the time it came the eggs were cold and hard. Washrooms are small and not good for Covid. No sanitizer, no paper towel. I had to use toilet paper to open the door and there was no garbage to put it in. Our sever was nice but our food came out at different times and was honestly just not good. My daughter had waffles which were ok. 50$ for breakfast for two when it really not good is a huge bummer!!
