Went here on a Sunday for brunch with my family. The music (DJ) was cranked so high we were yelling over the base pumping through the room. Is this necessary?? I want to catch up with my family over a great meal, not have breakfast in a nightclub. I had a headache by the time we left and will not go back. The food here is always a let down and the greeting at the front door always makes me feel like I’m inconveniencing the staff by simply telling them I have a reservation. Way over rated.

We have been here several times and generally like it. This time, however, the service wass mediocre, the 2 orders with eggs over easy were badly overcooked, the bacon was underdone and the hollandaise was unappetizing. We will be trying other restaurants in the future.

My food was (pork chop) was very undercooked and by time I saw server again my 5 guests had almost finished their dinner. I was still charged for the very rare pork chop. This was disappointing for an otherwise great nite.

I decided in less then 24hrs to book Drake, as I had heard about it, Business and Pleasure were on the agenda.

I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed with the Hotel and Restarant overall, Great Job!

The Creativity of the Hotel walls and random artifacts everywhere was pretty different from what Im used to, I liked it.

From the time I pulled up, to the time we left, the service was excellent! The Room was clean, the bed and pillows were cozy, loved the shower pressure and products.
Everyone on the team was helpful, polite and friendly. Food was yummy and the drinks great. Music, Dancing, Atmosphere and Crowd were a Perfect mix, close walk to some alternative options in the area.
I really wasn't sure what to expect, if anything just average an place and service, but I did not receive anything close to this...all 5 Stars only.

We made sure to take care of the staff and say our good byes....for now.
Cheers Drake Team👍

We went for dinner before a concert in the Underground. As usual we were welcomed and seated right away. The server was soon at the table to ask about drinks and speak to the menu. Wine was what we wanted but we watched as many around us enjoyed their cocktails. We shared the big green salad and the mixed mushrooms. The mushrooms were earthy and a lovely complimen to the salad. The salad was made from grated cabbage and carrot with ginger. It was unexpected and the Asian influence made it a standout. Light dinners of seafood chowder full of fish and flavour and a perfectly cooked hamburger finished the meal. Throughout the service was attentive. The noise level is always pretty high in the dining room section with groups of 4 or 6 having drinks and food with friends

Went to the drake for a bachelorette party, couldn’t of been happier. Our table was in the corner, very comfy booth with pillows. It was on a Wednesday night, music was too loud so we could enjoy eachother. Our food took a while however, but the waitress gave us free bubbles!! She was great and very accommodating. Thanks!!

Stopped by the Drake Hotel on Queen st this past Sunday for a brunch get-together . I have been a few times and truly....each visit I think the food gets better. Waffles and Chicken...are outstanding. The Eggs-Benny....looks great...although I didn't get a chance to taste... the staff work as team to ensure you are seated, watered and coffee'd....the food delivery was also done in a timely manner. My only 'issue' is with the after several refills....the waitstaff seems to disappear......seems to be an interesting time to let the customer search for the waitstaff.....way too close to the 'payment'....and the addition of the 'tip'...just sayin....and will still be back soon.

Super amazing service, food, and ambience. We went to celebrate my friend's engagement and it was so much better than I expected. The 'Mimosas for the Masses' option was perfect; they got to have their own engagement photobooth shoot.

Made and early brunch reservation, got seated at a lovely corner table. Nice a quiet to begin but filled up quickly, nice, bustling and cozy!
Food was delicious and came out in a timely manner.
Our server was upbeat and did a great job making sure we had everything we needed!
We left happy and full :)

Cool atmosphere, seating was not the comfiest and very cramped. It’s a large space and very loud. Slightly pricier but decent value for what you get. I got the smoked salmon bagel - it was heaped with salmon! Our server was attentive and we never had to wait for drinks. We always stop here for breakfast when in Toronto.

So my friends and i ate here for Winterlicious. We arrived around 5:35 and they told us they can’t serve Winterlicious until 6:00 (they didn’t say in the website so i didn’t expect that) I saw the other table leaving already. We had appetizers. My soup was really salty. salmon was okay and salad was big. Then we had main, my friend’s spaghetti pasta was also salty. She almost didn’t touch it so the server asked what’s wrong. Said too salty so they offered her new pasta but she’s already full so they offered her for to go. Cook also apologized personally. Dessert was very ordinary. Nothing special. Not worth for my money. So many restaurants around you can eat the same menu but cheaper price. The servers don’t even explain the food and doesn’t know which food goes to who. So not recommend this for people looking for Winterlicious menu

Planned for Winterlicious outing with my sister. Picked the lunch menu because of the options. Booked online, confirmed online. Upon being seated asked if we were there for Winterlicious. Turns out there was a system glitch - so brunch then. Brunch menu not great. Food not great served cold. Needed to ask for more coffee, server was busy. For Brunch I would prefer the School House and had i known gone there.
