We actually had very poor service on Friday. Three different servers over our time there and none of them were particularly attentive.
My first time at the Drake Commissary. It was excellent. Service was prompt and attentive. Food was delicious. My guest enjoyed a glass of the microbrewery next door's amber lager. My other guest texted her daughter to let her know she had found a new neighbourhood hang out. If you're in the west end, its a great place to meet and eat.
First time for brunch delicious!!
Great Sunday brunch as usual ☀️
Fabulous anytime! Breakfast lunch or dinner. Creative and delicious fare, super fresh. Great coffee. Attentive servers. Cool arty atmosphere. Have been often and never disappointed.
There’s a good vibe at this restaurant though it’s a bit noisy. Food selection and taste was delicious. Service initially was good then it really slowed down. I’d try it again though.
My friend and I had an amazing dinner at the Commissary. The food was incredible and the service was outstanding - highly recommend the zucchini fritters!! We will definitely be back!
Love this place only my second time there will definitely be coming back
Great service, even better food! A variety of options for brunch. Cozy and gorgeous space.
We had a great time for brunch before going to the MOCA. The food was delicious as always and so were the drinks. Coffee was fresh, tea was hot. Will definitely be back but maybe not too soon as the prices are a little high but understandably so. The scones...oh goodness get the scones even as a take away snack for later on in the day.
We booked for the Turkey dinner. We were surprised to be offered brunch when we got there. The link in the email suggested the booking was for Turkey dinner. We mis-understood.
One of our party is gluten and dairy-free. They had a hard time finding something in the brunch menu to eat.
Good space and talent otherwise.
Such a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. A new tradition perhaps. Everything was so flavourful and perfectly cooked.
If you are going for brunch & want a hip atmosphere and great tasting food, this is the place. My only issue is that we spend $90 on 2 people for brunch. $5 cup of tea is a bit ridiculous & although the food is delicious, the portions don't warrant the price. $17 for a smoked salmon bagel, does not even come with a side salad or anything? nice for a treat, maybe 1 x a year.
Food is creative and good. It is expensive for what you get though so I’m not sure the value is there. You are definitely paying for The Drake brand. That said, the experience as a whole is very good. The ambiance is unique as is the location. You definitely feel like you’ve done something different and fun.
First time here and really enjoyed it. The menu was very creative and tasty! Service was friendly and attentive and the design/decor was beautiful. Looking forward to coming back in the near future with my team.
Great for hosting a business lunch!
Food was exceptional! So fresh and delicious!
not if they wanted to have conversation. it is too loud
Great servers, great food. awesome evening. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
All good- was a surprised they served a drink w a plastic straw. Should be an option- lose single use plastic.
Always a great meal - absolutely love Sunday brunch. Great new brunch menu.
Unfortunately we had two different servers over the course of our meal and in the exchange our mains were forgotten. After asking about our order the servers explained what happened but there was no offer of a discount/dessert etc. to try to compensate for the forgotten meals that would never have arrived if we hadn’t asked about them!
Great food, good recommendations from the server. Only thing preventing a full 5* was the time it took to get our bill. At least 20 minutes. When you’re done, you’re done ya know?
I had high hopes. Service was not good...had to ask a few different servers to send our server over to take our drink order. Our server also didn't check in with us once the whole time we were there. It wasn't even busy, so I'm not sure why the service was poor. Too bad because the food was pretty good. Won't be back.
Great food, atmosphere and live music!
I enjoyed the gelato we had for dessert so much, we bought some to go.
Great place for any occasion. Just might become my go to
Sat on the patio, so missed the funky ambience this place is known for. Summer days are numbered, so we wanted to be outside.
Very gracious accommodation for Celiac.
Delicious food and original menu options.
Honestly, great dinner out for 6 besties, love the food, vibe, good service but not intrusive, mmm the eggplant - and how do you get the rapini like that? Moans over the rhubarb sorbet..mmmmm! Shared a pitcher each of red and white sangria - yum! All in all a positive, delicious and affordable dinner out - looking forward to going back!
Really nice experience. Staff was friendly and attentive.
Great! Except for the sound check from the venue next door everything was amazing.
Great food, family-friendly environment. The pastries looked amazing but was too full to try one!
Manager adamant about not adding another table so we had a more civilized dining experience which was a shame since there was room to do so and the dining room wasn’t packed. The hash did not excite me even though it’s the most popular dish. Too many competing flavors. The tequila Cesar was tasty.
Went back for a second try at dinner as service last time on a Monday was blah. Much better this time. Food was delicious and plentiful. You must order the fries. Got a sourdough loaf to go. Excellent service this time.
Kira, our server was a delight, the drinks were fresh, and the food was delicious. The music was a little loud but maybe I'm getting old? A great night.
Great food. Interesting location
2 of us visited for brunch on a Saturday morning @ 10:30 am. Not overly busy that hour, but definitely almost full a couple hours later. Love the ambiance and decor of the place, and I really enjoyed my food. The menu contains quite a variety of choices, with a large selection of coffees, teas, and alcoholic beverages. I ordered a cappuccino, then the ham plate. (Swap out the honey mustard for the grainy beer one, it tastes better with the ham, imo!) Husband had pancakes with a side of eggs. Everything cooked to perfection. The side of fruit contained watermelon, cantaloupe, and blueberries, and incredibly fresh and beautifully presented. Service was pretty fast, and efficient.
They make everything in house, including things like mustard, charcuterie, jam, etc. They sell their products as well. Of course, I bought the mustard! The restaurant has a space for people to use laptops, with power plugs, and operates a bakery onsite as well. We even had a tour of the kitchen, and like the restaurant itself, it's clean, organized and very professional.
Will definitely return!
My son loves it here. Food is fresh and delicious! The service always amazing!
The location is awesome, and the building is beautifully decorated.
Wednesdays is 50% off wines, with a great selection
Their apps (fries w. curry aioli) are good
The food is pretty disappointing. Very overpriced for the quality. The pasta w. peas and mushrooms were literally tasteless. Not worth going to for dinner, maybe small bites and drinks, but that's about it.
One of my favorite places for any time of day - first time doing brunch and we loved it!
Brunch on a lazy Saturday morning...
