          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.

          We live in Mississauga but a few times a year we enjoy venturing into the city and especially to the Drake for a meal. We usually like the patio in nice weather but the dining room was perfect this time around! We will continue our visits going forward!

          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.

          Basic food. cocktails pretty average and expensive. Service annoying : the waitress stoped by 6 times to our table during our lunch to ask if we wanted something or if everything was good. Really too much. It was like she was part of the lunch.

          Perfect venue for a casual brunch. Funky mid-century décor as a great backdrop to an enjoyable meal. The brunch menus is small but covers all the bases. The service was friendly and genuine and the food was well-prepared. The scones arrived warm and scrumptious -- although on the small side for $12. A glitch in the coffee order timing was graciously rectified with complimentary baked goods. Loved the fact that guests are not rushed and no maximum table "rental period" is imposed, unlike so many other venues.

          I ordered the steak frites asking for the steak to be done medium rare. When the steak arrived it was beyond rare and just plain raw. The waiter took it back to the kitchen and the chef agreed they had not cooked the steak.

          Love the new menu. Everything was delicious and great service as always at The Drake. The New Modern Wing of the hotel and the lobby bar is OUTSTANDING, a wonderful edition to Queen West!

          Staff was kind and accommodating of my brothers nut allergy. Table was ready on time, food arrived in a timely manner, and everything was delicious.

          So. The room was super nice, but the music bumped till 2am and kind of sucked. And we asked for a bucket of ice which we were given, but didn’t notice till the next morning that the ice bucket had a green scour pad in the bottom of it. Kind of gross because we used that ice in our drinks the night before. Nice room but be careful

          A last minute dinner date on a Monday. Place was actually quite busy but we got ourselves a nice table by the windows. The roasted chicken was good as was the steak et frites, all presented beautifully. A little on the pricey side, but would consider coming back.
