Felt very safe with co vid precautions.
It was very cold probably would have appreciated more heat from the patio heaters. Maybe getting one of those tents some restaurants are doing - but it was a good time and the service was great. We made reservations but felt rushed when waiter kept reminding us we had only two hours to eat and talk when it was a catch up social wth friends. We felt rushed to order and get out.
Delicious brussel sprouts and falafel, and two great servers. Thank you.
Great service by our waitress. Very accommodating.
The brunch menu was cancelled suddenly due to indoor people having to move outdoor.
Has a know prior to last minute, I would have gone else where. I had made a reservation.
We came for brunch. Server was very good however!
Seated quickly. Although our waitress was efficient and kind, there was no “hi, welcome to the drake,” or anything of the sort, it was a “can I get you something to drink”. A small “welcome” makes a difference for new guests :)
No mimosas listed on the brunch or drink menu , and maybe that’s because they charged $12 for each (that was heavy on the juice)!
No coffees on the menu either, and a standard brewed coffee was $3.75, vs an Americano for $4 (more standard pricing). Not to mention the coffee was cold. They did pour me a new cup which was nice and hot.
Service was good/timely/attentive in general, and food was tasty.
High pricing for drinks like pot coffee and a mimosas (that don’t take any effort,) and purposely keeping them off the menu - comes off as sneaky, (consider bumping up your main menu items instead slightly to make a profit). Left a bad taste in my mouth, no pun intended.
Food was great! Hats off to the chefs.
Host and server were very nice and attentive, but we were initially put on the extended patio with no heating while there were available seats on the heated patio. We asked to be moved and it wasn’t an issue so that was nice. My partner ordered the maple glazed salmon, it wasn’t bad but wasn’t anything to write home about, it could have been more flavourful. But I ordered the pork bolognese gemelli and I truly hate using this word but it was gross. It was definitely as advertised so it was my own fault for ordering it, but the flavour in conjunction with the texture was quite unpleasant. Drake brunch is great but I think the dinner menu needs a bit of a revamp.
Patio wasn’t that great, rooftop is more worth it. Went in for the brunch and I was not really impressed with the food options or the taste itself. It’s on me though I should have checked the verity of options on the menu first. Found it to be quite bland.
I am very impressed with The Drake Hotel's screening process, starting with a temperature check at the door. Heating lamps on the covered patio meant an enjoyable experience even in the rain. Servers were so sweet in allowing me to sample a wine, especially when there are so many more sanitation requirements. The maple salmon was moist and flakey and I loved the squash that came with it. Thank you so much for such a wonderful dining experience, and we can't wait to come back again soon.
Great service, awesome drinks, awesome food, very cute and cool decor. The Drake is always my number 1 bet!
Normally I have had really nice dining experiences at The Drake, but this time I truly did not. My main issue was that the food was subpar, especially for the price.
Went to the Drake Hotel for weekend brunch, has the eggs benny and was sooo good they were able to accommodate my substitution of the shaved ham with sausage instead. Friends had the Huevos Rancheros and was equally delish. Server even brought us the house hot sauce which was amazing! Their latte was super great as well! Finished off our meal with the blueberry scones which were still warm from the oven just wish they were bigger to be honest! Overall great meal and would totally go back.
Awesome rooftop patio for brunch. The cocktails were very good (great caesars). I was with a group of 7 people and there was some confusion with the menu/waiter on wanting to add avocado to the eggs benny vs substituting. With that said, the waiter corrected this for us in short order and the food was pretty good. I would recommend this place as a solid brunch option.
The service and atmosphere was great but the food was not very good. By the time the food arrived at our table my burger was room temperature and my fries were soggy
Our water glasses, cocktail glasses and coffee cups were empty for a long time, without being offered more, empty plates were left on the table for about half an hour while we just sat and waited for service.
The waitress is amazing and the rooftop is well covered. Hopefully it will be warm enough in winter.
classic spot, great service, great drinks and great food!
The food is a bit inconsistent (although much better than it used to be) but its a great option for an outdoor patio on Queen West. Service is friendly and drinks are great.
It’s a bit pricey for what you get - but the area is nice, staff are great and place is cool. The food is meh
This is definitely the best Covid dining experience we have had. The patio upstairs is beautiful and we were ensconced in our own "plexi glass booth". The server was great. The food was great. We stayed on a Sunday afternoon for the 2 hours (12-2) and had a great Sunday brunch. Highly recommend.
This is the best service I have received in Toronto hands down. Trust me I have gone to so many high end restaurants. Even in Covid, the service was exceptional; I can’t even fault anything. The staff went above and beyond, extremely clean, so professional, so accommodating, willing to go above and beyond, called me to check on me. I don’t know how long this hotel/ restaurant has been in business but I know for sure they are definitely here to stay forever. Sincerely I lack words to say thank you for making my day special. Please don’t even second guess, you’ll enjoy everything. It worths more than I spent. Thank you
I was really impressed with the precautions that were taken. The patio was great tables were very distanced I just wish the heaters were working
service and ambience great. servers were very accomodating
As always - good food, friendly service and the best patio on Queen West.
Good time, food was decent, more options would have been appreciated
Fun spot, get the blueberry pie
We actually arrived earlier than scheduled and they had no issue finding us a table and took great care of us.
Would love to come back!
Great service. Was seated in a private room upstairs for our 8 person reservation. Attentive service from the staff.
The burger is classic but delicious (though my cheese wasn't melted enough). The fries were great and the server was very happy to bring spicy mayo for them, and to serve teh burger with both fries and salad.
Well executed dining during pandemic conditions... love this spot!
Food is horrible since co-vid. Stale bread, small portions, limited menu $244 for 5 people.
No cushions on seats too low for the table.
Just terrible. Would not recommend.
Plus they called me 2 times the day I made reservation.
And then they called the day of to tell me the upper patio I’d reserved was closed. Perhaps try and mention that as a possibility the first two times you call me.
Great ambience, food and staff. Patio is energetic!
Really enjoy my experience will definitely visit again.
Great food on patio from a limited menu . . who needs abundant choice when the food served is really good?
Love their burger, one of the best. Having it with the truffle fries didn't hurt!
Way too much ice in the old fashioned. By the time I got it it was extremely watered down. I doubt there was even 2oz of alcohol in there and tasted more like water. The charcuterie board was lame, and the steak tartare was bland. Very overpriced.
Always great service and great food. A tradition - my 87 yr old aunt loves the place and it always her treat...Drake Burger and and IPA - she is in heaven
Went for brunch, and had a really good time! the food was delicious and the patio was really nice!
great oysters and great bubbly recommended by server
The patio was very nice and the service was great!
