Diner Reviews
  • "Very quiet Friday evening. DJ playing music but not too loud. Bar tender was great, providing expertise on both drink and food. Food was good but nothing great but did not expect to find culinary cuisine. Overall, it was a good dinner but was surprised to see it so quiet."

  • "We were not at all satisfied. We are seniors and the music and the noise made it impossible to hear each other across the table. The food was just OK. First of all, the Wednesday fried chicken special was sold out. I had the chicken parm and it was good. However, it should have been served with pasta, rice or potatoes, instead of some kind of peppers. I had a few, but there were just too many of them. I went back to the menu to see what was supposed to be served with the chicken, but really I could not understand the menu items. My husband said the steak was just OK and the potato wedges were overcooked and he could not eat them all. The waiter was efficient enough but seemed disinterested. He was more interested in the cute girls."

  • "Food quite good. Nice waitress, very pleasant, helpful & attentive."

  • "Had a great lunch with a friend. Sat inside, as the patio was full. The high chairs/stools were not so comfortable, but they looked great as part of the decor. Recommend the burger and Nonna's meatballs!"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Drake one fifty is a nice dimly lit, low-key restaurant with a classy vintage look to it. The service was excellent and the food was incredible."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Came to Drake 150 for quick drinks and snacks. They make really good Amaretto Sour. Had the Drake poutine and it was a big on the salty side. Also ordered garlic green beans. Will definitely come back to try their food menu."

  • "I love the unpretentious vibe of his downtown Toronto hotspot. Having been a fan of the Drake Hotel for sometime, I thought I should check out their other restaurant, Drake 150. I ordered the Margherita pizza, which was lovely, but I would definitely recommend it for 2 people due to it being a bit larger than a typical personal pizza. The table ordered two drinks, Sangria, and I ordered the Unicorn Dynamite, which was vodka with a splash of lemon, lime, blueberry, and pomegranate. After 30+ minutes with no drinks, we asked our server when we could expect them, and she forgot we had ordered them. Beyond the minor case of forgetfulness of our server, the food, drinks, and ambiance of Drake 150 would entice me to return."

  • "The service was very good but the music is quite loud, so if you are planning to have any conversations with your dinner mates, you'll be yelling across the table for most of the night. We ordered the "family meal" of roasted chicken. It was good, but nothing spectacular. The restaurant is definitely more about the atmosphere than the food."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "I've heard that the noise level was high, but it was quiet when I went, probably due to the fact that this was on the Monday before Canada Day so there weren't many diners. My guest's food looked good, but my halibut was overly salty."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "I made a reservation and there was only 6pm or after 8pm available. I booked a table for 4 for 8pm and the place was empty. I guess at 7pm they just like the restaurant to be nice and quiet. The restaurant is really nicely done, wide open space, lots of tables. Pretty good patio. We ordered some appetizers and drinks. The drinks were very good. The appetizers were very very salty. We receive the menus back for dinner and the server explains the menu and makes some recommendations but mostly tells us not to order the pasta or the pizza. Without warning or last chance for ordering our server returns, sweeps the menus out of our hands and tells us the kitchen is now closed. We can only order snacks. Oh, and margherita pizza."

  • "Great find for the downtown area!! Service was delightful and really elevated the dining experience for our group. I returned a few days later because of the outstanding food and service. I would recommend this place for people looking for a pleasant dining experience with great food and decor."

  • "Great place for lunch: food is good and service is quick!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "The venue was nice and the service excellent but the food was ineduble. I ordered the short ribs and was served a block of solid fat. What little meat there was was terribly seasoned and almost ineduble. The place had so much promise but was a real let down. They didn't charge for the meal but it should never have left the kitchen. With so many other options in Toronto, I would not go back."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Drake One fifty is aptly named as it relates to its address and also the price. It can easily cost $150 per person for a full meal with wine. The food is delicious but servings are small. It's loud enough for a family occasion with noisy Uncle Charlie but not for children. Clientele was mostly composed of Bay St. types on the Thursday we dined. It was great fun but pricey."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Service was efficient, the halibut was fantastic, decor was funky and I like the overall vibe. The wine list by the glass was a bit on the rich side. I know it's Bay St., but come on guys."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Really great service, good food, beautiful design... the only negative was the loud noise from the street. There was a shredding truck right beside out table on the patio, which interrupted our lunch for a good 15 minutes."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "It was my first time for a business lunch and I was quite happy that it was a very appropriate place for a man and a woman to have lunch together without feeling awkward."

  • "The attention to detail and this great of service is very rare in Toronto. The food is equally as good. Worth every penny."

  • "This was my second time having lunch here. First time was outstanding. Couldn't say enough about the hamburger. Happy to say, the second time was not disappointing. Truly love your restaurant. Service was quick and friendly."

  • "Drake restos have it all. Food is excellent, with an edge. Great vibe. We did the whole chicken. Amazing!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Really loud. Pizza was excellent and my dining companions polenta with mushroom ragu was apparently great Tables super close. Overall fun but don't go there if you want to talk about anything meaningful or private"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Great new spot with a nice patio fronting York St., and a nice inside space that is half-bistro half-diner in feel. Menu is excellent, and preparations are very good. Wait staff were attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. Will definitely be back."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Much prefer a place like this over the parking-lot suburban chains that are popping up in the core. Food is great, services is top notch, close to all the offices, and a good vibe all around. Thursdays are packed, but it's always a great time here."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "The food isn't all that great or memorable. The prices are out of line for the quality of food. We were there for lunch (five people)."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "Over priced...the burger and salad etc was covered in salt........but all of that would have been no problem if not for the server who came to clear everything 30 seconds after our forks were down and then approached the table in 3 min intervals to see if we wanted anything else. It would have been easier if she just said "ok now pay and get out". Ridiculous."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Had the lamb and it was amazing! The only complaint is, the meat portion was perfect, the sides not so much, I didn't even feel full after. Service was excellent, my side water glass was never empty for more than 20secs, the wine selection is fantastic. But since I'm more of a cocktail drinker, but not a fan of gin at all, something with rum or vodka would have been appreciated. I was expecting the place to be buzzing but it wasn't, which made for an evening of great conversation with my friend :)"

  • "Went with 4 friends for a Friday night catch up and we had a lovely but elusive waitress. I think she had too many tables. There was a bit of a mix up with our drinks and they ended up forgetting the rosemary and bringing us a huge twig of rosemary to add to our drinks. It was odd. When the food came, my 3 friends' burgers and fries looked good and their plates we're overflowing with yumminess. I ordered the Fri shirt rib special and it was under-seasoned and, sadly, unexceptional. Next time I'll get the burger ."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We could not believe how quickly our food came! I was a bit leery at first but it tasted wonderfully fresh- some sort of magic going on in that kitchen! Staff were friendly. Drinks were delicious. A bit pricey for a non-financial district patron- a special occasion spot for sure!"
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "We went here for lunch and the food was great. The service was pretty quick so we weren't stuck waiting a long time. We had the Blistered Shisito Peppers appetizer which was flavourful and original - the honey sauce on the eggplant was wondering (if only there were more eggplant pieces). My friend had the Creamy Polenta and Mushroom Ragu which she loved and I had the Gemelli Pasta which was better than a lot of Italian Pasta only restaurants I've been to in the city. The Lemon Tart was fantastic and a great way to finish the meal. I'm looking forward to going again in the evenings as the restaurant had great decor and ambiance. "

  • "Very eclectic and modern food menu with a good variety of wines. Excellent accomodations for groups. Cool music with live DJs. "

  • "Dead place with even worse service , non- enthusiastic staff ,and food wasn't that great. Chef would not consider making any changes to any dishes . Server didn't offer any substitute for items on the menu that were restricted to is due to religious dietary reasons. Very unfriendly !"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "I ordered the halibut, it was okay but not amazing for $33. It tasted a bit fishy which Halibut should not, my guess is that the fish wasn't fresh. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "The cost far exceeded the experience. This is an average dining experience which may be better suited for lunch."

  • "We were pleasantly impressed by the quality and variety of foods for dinner here. The halibut was well prepared, as was the lamb confit."

  • "the place is vert nice. I had a good time. BUT, I wasn't too happy that I had to eat in a rush. I got there at 945 and we had a drink by the time we ordered our food I was told we had to order now cause the kitchen was closing. the waiter stated that we could order off a late night menu.so that was ok. until we finished our pizza and halibut and wanted to order something else. surprisingly, we were told that that menu was done as well... I'm not ahuge fan of drinking without food.... but it was an ok time"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Everything was just fine. There was nothing particularly memorable or special, but the food was quite good and the service was also very good. But at $100 per person, I would have liked something a bit more...."

  • "Having been to the Drake restuarant attached to the hotel, I was expecting passible fare with good service surround by "hip" people. I was very pleasantly surprised by the really great food at 150- we had excellent crudo, beet salad and the special starter of scallops. All bright and tasty, good portions and well executed. For mains we had the pork chop, halibut and the burger. All delicious and sastifying any cravings we had for that sort of meal. We asked to move from a smaller table to a larger one knowing how much we'd order and were glad we did. Great atmosphere and the photobooth was just a fun add on to the evening. We loved the music, the energy and the space. Would totally go back and bring friends."
