Fantastic drinks, food, service!
Thank you to the Drake Hotel for a wonderful wedding day brunch. We had a small ceremony at City Hall and then our group headed to the Drake. Everything was amazing. We were greeted and seated by the manager and given a wonderful table at the sky bar patio. The service and food were both fantastic, but it was the care and safety concerns of the staff that made us feel that we were well taken care of. I highly recommend the Drake Hotel!!!
The Drake Hotel always has a lovely atmosphere and it's a great location. The food is good (not great and a little overpriced ), so it's better for drinks and few nibbles rather than a whole meal. Exception, the scones were delicious!
Ate on the upstairs outdoor patio. Attentive and professional service. A dozen very plump and tasty oysters preceded my main course of fried chicken, which was exceptionally crisp with a spicy crust which did not overwhelm the chicken. A nice mixed berry tart for dessert. All washed down by a pitcher of very refreshing sangria. Noise level was hard on geriatric ears but next time I will request a table not right under the speakers. We were probably not the target demographic, in any event.
Food was fantastic! Great brunch experience up on the sky deck!
Unfortunately, we were on the side patio as the rooftop patio was not open. The food was good, not spectacular. Prices for dinner are good.
Great food, and atmosphere. Thanks for a fun evening.
Great service! Servers made the experience on this visit. Really enjoyed the fried chicken - yum!
Service was great, all staff were so helpful. Great attention paid to cleaning/safety.
Made an reservation to have lunch with family for my birthday and what I saw is nothing like the photos. The place is looks and smelled old. The patio tables and chairs were dirty. Staff poorly attired. I was so turned off I just canceled and leave.
Our experience was very positive and the staff took great care / precautions during our time there. We felt safe and well taken care of- thank you for easing our patio anxiety!
Not very helpful. Wanted a table in the shade and advised all the tables were already reserve...kind of odd since a reservation is needed for the patio. As well, didn't use the awning on the street patio but had sparse umbrellas. When asked to move tables after another table had emptied, it took forever to get confirmation if we could move. If it's necessary to include that a table in the shade is required when booking a reso, it should be clearly communicated.
We enjoyed our evening at the drake. Our server was very friendly and we felt very safe with the Covid procedures in place. Will definitely return:)
I was so impressed with the Drake operations during COVID. They took our temperature upon entry, servers were very respectful about space, the meal was as delicious as expected, and tables were very well spaced to allow for social distancing. Will definitely be going back!
Really good, the only thing is that they don´t have the full menu yet, due the COVID thing I guess...but this place is always excellent.
Great server :)
This was my first visit to the Drake since we went into lockdown. The Sky Yard was available, so we chose to dine there. I was happy to be able to go there instead of the sidewalk level patio! Great food and great service as usual!
They would not honor a gift card that I had even though upon arrival I asked if I could still use it. Apparently they have different gift cards so confirm before you order.
We had to wait for our table despite showing up on time for our reservation but they were very gracious and gave us a complimentary glass of wine!
Food was great and patio is cozy
Enjoyed my first visit back to the Drake after quarantine! Good measures in place for safety and felt good about the spacing. Wish there had been music on the patio for a bit more ambiance, but the food, drinks and service was outstanding as always!
Pre quarantine Drake- awesome. Post quarantine Drake- garbage.
Clinical, paranoid staff. Minimal, curt service. Forever to get seated even after booking a reservation. Staff is just waiting for you to eat your food and get out. Not worth it! The place right across from Drake’s patio- totally different vibe. Picked the wrong patio.
Great experience given the new setup for COVID. The staff were so great and the food was amazing. I was so happy to be able to sit outside - with enough space between tables. The thought that has been put into how to beat manage during COVID was very helpful. Thanks for a great experience !
When we went, there was a chance it would rain but
The food is ok. The outdoor dining setup is very basic. Plastic chairs and tables. Not my fave.
Service was spectacular. Covid measures were awesome.
We had our wedding anniversary lunch on the Drake patio. It was excellent!! The staff were very careful to follow COVID protocol but at the same time calm and relaxed. The food was amazing! We both loved everything we ordered. We would go again ourselves and definitely recommend it for a casual OR special occasion meal!
Didn't have food. I was looking forward to Lobster Nachos, it wasn't available.
It was average, really. Food was a little overpriced for the quality and quantity but everything else was okay.
Saturday brunch @The Drake...
Our experience was terrible. We were so looking forward to our lunch after four months of not being able to go out and we wanted to support a local business. Our waiter was rude, slammed a salt shaker on our table when we asked for salt, we had to wait an hour for 2 kale salads (that did not have one piece of kale in them!) and the fries were soggy and terrible. Worst experience we have ever had in Parkdale and we have lived here for many years. Terrible.
Hey there, this was my first visit to the Drake and it was wonderful! It was during covid19 and all the precautions were in place for everyone's protection and all done in an extremely thoughtful way. The little paper bags given to store our face masks in while we were there was a lovely added touch! The service was terrific and the food and drinks were amazing! Thanks so much for a really memorable and fun evening, Sheila
Nice to get out on a patio after months in isolation. The Drake Hotel was very accommodating. The awning covers the patio - which is good on hot, sunny days. They check your temperature prior to entering and do a decent job cleaning the tables when a guest leaves.
Was hoping to sit on the rooftop patio not street patio
Waitress on rooftop was awesome. She wore a mask and was prompt. Social distancing was in place.
Great service, fried chicken was awesome, and loved the throwback music on the patio.
Patio just opened, which was great, but at 6 pm half of the menu was no longer available.
Our server was so incredibly lovely and gracious during what I’m sure must be a very stressful time for all staff. We really appreciated her great service and wish everyone at The Drake well.
The Drake is always entertaining. My friends and I had a great evening!
Friendly staff and great atmosphere. I would always recommend this place!
Service needs to be faster.
We were at the skyard for a Valentines Dinner. Food was excellent but we waited for more than an hour for the main course. The waiter felt bad and we got 2 glasses of sparkling wine and a 50% rebate on the food.
