Appreciate that the patio is open for service. Our waitress Olivia as always was outstanding. However, we found that all three drinks we ordered were either watered down or not of the quality expected. The food was mediocre at best.

During Stage-2 opening of patios reservations are recommended due to limited seating. As always cocktails, food, and service are terrific.

Nice quaint place to relax with friends. The food menu is limited considering Covid 19 as they are only allowed to serve food outside so that is understandable.
I’m not usually one to look at prices while dining out but the drink prices here were pretty steep. 15 bucks+tax for a Pimms (that too served in a small collins glass) is steep by any stretch of imagination.
Would probably go here again but when they are fully functional. The food was exceptional though.

Delicious and safe experience!

Temperature taken and a few basic health questions before being seated. Spacing is good, just right. ALSO, if you're concerned about sun, this place is all shade at supper time!

Service was great and food was tasty. I had eggplant parm; it was delicious, but not hot enough. Love rapini; it is underrated, imo.

Their non-alcoholic drink selection was great; strawberry lemonade was only $4; the perfect patio drink! My friends enjoyed their sangria, so much fruit!

Both desserts were excellent, much bigger portions than expected!

Would go back!

Fantastic service from beginning to end. Food quality was beyond my expectations, healthy, tasty, and fresh. Best patio experience since covid also they do a wellness check before entering which is reassuring. Our server was thorough and charming. Can’t wait to return.

Overall, I enjoyed Drake Commissary. I've been a few times before. The brunch is OK in menu selection and taste. I think dinner maybe more have more variety. The main thing was our server was not attentive or proactive in serving the table. It was my birthday brunch and there was no acknowledgement of it -- no bday dessert or anything.

Superior food in a warm yet bustling environment. Steady staff navigate tables in the middle of the room that are too close together with grace and calm. Try to score a coveted booth in order to avoid the feeling you're back in elementary school crowded in the reading circle. All in all a good experience with few kinks to iron out.

Was expecting more.....
Halloumi was too salty, Babaganoush was ok, Flank was cooked perfect but sauce on side was way too Smokey, Grilled calamari were hard and flavourless.....
Restaurant was not busy at all which gave the cooks a great amount of time to make everything right. If your calamari are off that day, let us know and we will order something else. Work on tasting before plating.
Service: fair, they gave us time to select our dishes, they did not interrupt our conversation, and they were pleasant.

A good evening overall. Was just looking for that extra spark!

Ambiance was cool. I can see myself having lunch here during the week.

Great food, nice ambiance and friendly, efficient service. The Commissary can be so many different things to so many different people without impinging on anyone's vibe. We were a family of four with a 1 and 5-year old, sitting beside a couple who appeared to on a morning-after date, two friends apparently catching up, two colleagues deep into work gossip and strategy, and around the restaurant a scattering of couples and a large table celebrating a birthday, yet no single vibe dominated and everybody looked like they were in their own space. Lovely and accommodating vibe.

Costs $40 for 2 salmon cream cheese bagels. Would cost $15 anywhere else. Didn't even use real smoked salmon. Was some gross mushed up puree with 2 pieces of dill. Nothing else in the sandwich. Still hungry after meal so went to McDonald's. Wish the waitress told us. Huge disappointment. Also loud restaurant.

Too noisy on weekends brunch compared to other times.
Slice of sourdough bread with avocado and egg was overpriced at $16 with nothing else in the plate, no salad or decoration in that white plate. The bread was too toasted and hard to break or cut with a knife. Previous times were better.

We went for a work lunch and the ambiance, location, food, was top notch and I would highly recommend.
Service was a 3/5 don't go if you are at all in a rush its quite slow and not super attentive to water refills, getting the bill etc. When we asked for things like extra hot water for tea or ketchup for fries it felt like we were bugging the servers based off their reaction.
Not a reason NOT to go as everything else is absolutely 10 out of 10.

Absolutely fan-freaking-tastic. In TO on. A four day 3-night biz trip and we loved it so much we came back twice!! The flavour palette is balanced so well. Rich flavours and not overwhelming portions for any one thing. An absolute pleasure. I would definitely come back any time I visit.

Great service! Unique menu. Love it that you can make a reservation online- I despise lineups. Great atmosphere. Blueberry scones yum! The menu is slightly more pricey than most brunch menus, but they are using quality ingredients.
