We were a party of four and we had the pre-opera menu. The starters were superb and the mains delicious and just enough

The decor was fantastic. The service was great.

We’ll return for sure!

This was our valentines dinner. Overall we had a great time. The food was good. Not the largest selection but a good one none the less. Our server Matt was great. Seemed busy towards the end our meal. And was dealing with a group of people that seemed more high maintenance. Overall good experience, good food, good space.

Service: I asked for a more private table on OpenTable and they offered a corner table so my partner and I could sit next to each other. Service was prompt after we were seated. Food arrived at a good pace.
Food: I had the boar chops and my partner had the fried chicken, and we were both happy with our order. Tartare and oysters-both good. Opera cake-delightful first bite and maybe the second, but that's about it. A little too sweet for my liking, but if you are a macaron person, order this cake. It tastes exactly like a 4 layered flattened pistachio raspberry macaron.
Drinks: I had the brown butter maple and naked and famous, both very nice.

Even for downtown Toronto , this “brunch “ was extremely overpriced and not worth the 70$ with tax and tip that it cost to eat for two. For a little bit more than you can go to the old mill and eat like a king, as opposed to eating like a princess.

Great atmosphere, terrible waitstaff. Small group dining. Either the wait staff doesn't know their menu or rather deceptively up sold an item that wasn't appropriate for the group. Wouldn't recommend eating here. Plenty of great places in the city that won't try and trick you.

Everything was fabulous! Food, service, decor, and ambience.
We had a show at 8 so I made an early reservation at 5:30 for 4ppl. We got sat at a cozy booth way at the back, near the kitchen where all the servers pick up the food. So we missed out on being able to see all the interior decor and people watching. So that's my only negative feedback really. Im my opinion that should be the last table sat in the restaurant...

It was a weird night with a lot of misses. One guest was gluten-free and we had to constantly ask if he could eat certain dishes. We were charged for 2 orders of Brussels sprouts because the first wasn't gluten free. The side orders of sprouts and carrots came out as appetizers. One guest never got his cider. One guest asked for meatballs and a side of pasta and she got the kids pasta (over-cooked flavourless noodles). Our server was friendly, but never wanted to interrupt our conversation, which instead meant hovering over us awkwardly until we spoke first. Been to Drake150 a lot and it's usually better, same for the Hotel and Prince Edward County. But there's so many similar options downtown I probably won't be back.

Very sorry to write this, but not happy. We waited a while for breakfast dish and waiter comes over and drops bowl of ketchup on my sons pants. He then swears and says we will deal with that ASAP...A lady comes by and hands a cloth and soda water to wipe a stain that covered about 15 inches wide??? There was no consideration to the bill ( at least to cover his dish-not that we needed the $$ but out of principal!!)

Lady then leaves her card and says if you needed anything let me k now???

After almost $200 for a breakfast for 4 with no alcohol, I would say that it won’t be a place I would visit again....Drake or no Drake!!

As it was my first time at 150 and I had made a lunch reservation on-line the previous week in my name, I was rather disappointed in both the service and the food. I had requested a table for 2 by the window. When I came in, I was asked if I had a reservation which I did - I was told I was the first to arrive by the hostess - and I was promptly shown to the back of the restaurant against the wall which was very noisy and hard to squeeze through to my seat. After waiting 15 minutes, I texted my business colleague thinking maybe he had gone to the wrong restaurant. He texted me that he had shown up shortly after me, gave my name as the name booked under the reservation, and he was also told that he was the first to arrive, and he was promptly shown to a table by the window as per the reservation request. Obviously, we were seated by different hostess and there was no communication between them. After being shown to the table that I had originally requested, we ordered our lunch. My colleague and I both requested half salad and half french fries with our sandwiches as offered by the server; however, my colleague received all french fries and no salad. The server did rectify the order by bringing a salad to my colleague. The food (my colleague had the Pacific Cod and I had the Philly Cheese Steak) was OK, not spectacular. The bread for the Philly Cheese Steak was too thick and was soggy. I do think this restaurant is highly overrated and overpriced and will not be returning in the future.

One of our favourite places for brunch. They recently have a live band playing on the weekends for brunch. The service has always been the best. We noted the dishes grew bigger in portion.

My husband and I came for date night. We were not impressed with the service or the food. My husband wanted the rack of lamb special but could not have the sweet potato puree that came with it. He just asked if it could be left off and if he could have a vegetable instead. This was due to dietary restrictions. We were told no substitutions were allowed. I think for this type of restaurant they should be able to accommodate dietary restrictions. We ended up ordering it anyway and my husband and I switched plates. I ate the sweet potato and he ate the salad that came with my meal. Overall the food was cold and the service lacked. Our plates sat for quite sometime before they were even cleared even though our server walked by several times and saw that we were finished. He was busy talking to other servers. We won't be coming back.

Showed up with a reservation at 830, and they told us sorry the kitchen was closed for a party and weren’t sure how we got the reservation on OpenTable. The manager allowed us to be seated and we order drinks and starters and did not want to rush and 3 separate servers asked us if we would put our main order so they could could close the kitchen.
Very rude and rushed, just a strange experience for a nice dining place. Won’t be back

My boyfriend and I were celebrating an early anniversary, and after being 3 months a part from our last visit this was the perfect spot to reunite and get our love of food on. We decided to go tapas style, and order a few dishes for the table. First of all, the service was fantastic. We were quite hungry after sitting up at the bar for an hour and our server Greg made sure that the food was out fast and hot. Starting with Nonna's meatballs, which were incredibly juicy and made you feel right at home. We are big fans of chorizo, and so of course we also ordered the Queso Fondido flatbread which was again a warm slice of comfort. The third dish was the pork cheeks that were melt in your mouth good with a spicy kick thanks to the harissa that complimented the meat. To top it off, we couldn't possibly fit any dessert in but in celebration of our anniversary Greg treated us to some montenegro's which rounded out the flavours of the food and made our evening all the more special. Thank you Drake One Fifty for making our reunion a magical one!

Went here for an anniversary dinner and were very pleased with the experience as a whole. Service was wonderful and friendly, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was playful and romantic. Beer and cocktails were lovely, as were the fancied drake fries we ordered to start. My entrée was phenomenal (the butcher's cut pork belly special) but his entrée (the rabbit pasta) left a little something to be desired. Nonetheless, we would recommend this place to friends and will likely be returning soon. Cheers!
