    Went for brunch with a friend Easter Sunday, didn’t expect it’d be so popular with large groups tbh, but that was ok. Very good eggs benny, and nice drinks—I’ve had the High Tea off the Temperance menu and it felt like a pretty sophisticated cocktail even without the alcohol, which is always nice to discover. The ambience in the lounge is very chill, and the decor very aesthetic—the faux books on the shelves in the corner are a nice touch, as the titles are all tongue in cheek and made us laugh. My only small caveat to the whole experience is that line management at the entrance could’ve been smoother, as well as the seating. My friend and I had a reservation, and one of us was a bit early, but she shouldn't have had to wait for 20 minutes to be seated as the table was clearly available. Also, I get that accommodating big groups is always a bit tricky, but our table for two was pretty awkwardly set up amid 2 large group tables (8-10) and I wonder if that was the best planning. Kind of takes away from the experience a bit.

    They sat us awkwardly in the middle of the isle so it was pretty cold all dinner. The chairs were also not the most comfortable. All can be redeemed though, when the manager searched for the flower balloon I ordered through the website. He didn't have them, so he offered us a free drink and gave us two roses he had in the restaurant. It was really kind. They also set up a poet to write a little poem about your love story, and a photobooth.

    We made a reservation on a Friday night and didn’t know the main restaurant / bar would be closed for a private event so had to sit in the cafeteria which was not the vibe we were looking for, so that was a let down. Would have booked another restaurant if we knew. Food was nothing special.

    The food was delicious but the restaurant was in the throes of coping with changes in covid rules and short staff. As a result the service was very slow but super friendly and very apologetic. Our waiter was terrific. I give the restaurant top marks. Menu is great and everyone's food was delicious and hot.

    We decided to do the pre fixe menu for Valentine's Day, but should've decided on something else, maybe. The main course was cold, the soup had no texture to it and felt like I was forcing myself to drink straight cream, and the only exciting thing about the night were the drinks. The restaurant was jam packed like sardines and was super dark that I couldn't even see what I was eating. Our server, however, was very quick, attending, and very friendly.

    Overall experience was great at The Drake Hotel. We were there for Valentine’s Day. There were good options for the 3-course Valentine’s menu. I had the patê, beef bourguignon, and pavlova. Patê was a little too salty for my taste but everything else was great. It was a busy evening (expected for Valentine’s Day) but our server was attentive and friendly and the food came out quickly.

    The whole experience was positive beginning to end. We requested a secluded table due to covid and they totally delivered. We practically had the dining room to ourselves. The service was attentive, the food was delicious. Even the bartender came to our table so we could select our drinks. I would definitely recommend.

    I understand that it gets turned into a nightclub sometimes, but during dinner service, the music should be turned down just a little bit so we can actually hear the person across from us. Other than that, the food was amazing as well as the drinks. Our server was handling the whole restaurant and did a great job at accommodating our large party.
