Character restaurant in the historic Drake hotel in the heart of downtown Toronto. The ambiance was upbeat with great music and comfortable seating. The brunch menu could use a few more options for those looking for a more substantial lunch, as opposed to breakfast. The breakfast choices were good and we all had the Drake breakfast, that was hearty and very filling almost a full English! Cool little brunch spot in an eclectic part of town that’s easy to get to, lots of street parking and overall good ambiance.

Clean bathroom was the highlight. Menu not great. Steak tartare was very disappointing. Oysters was good. Mignonette was very overpowering. Left to try another spot.

I have had this meal before on a previous “thanks giving” at the drake. This time it tasted like the remains from yesterday .. it was not fresh as supposed to be or as i have experienced it there before. Service was good.

They had one server for the entire venue. The poorest service I ever had. We order a bottle of wine to have WITH OUR MEAL and we could see the server running around and checking the other tables while we were already eating, we waited for over 15 min for the bottle but she never brought it. The server came to our table around 20 min later, when we had already ate our meals, saying that she would be bringing the wine shortly. We asked to cancel it. Terrible experience.

Food was great, drinks were great, oysters were overpriced. Our server was not great, and our food took a really long time. By the end our table was overrun by wasps and we literally ran out of there after paying the bill LOL

Service very good and food is good. Coffee is excellent. Hotel is under construction/renovation which limits overall ambience.

Okay atmosphere and good customer service but the food fell short. Our lobster mac and cheese was quite salty and the veggie burger wasn't anything special. The mushroom pate was pretty good but it was a lot of pate for one chip. Not sure if it was an off night in the kitchen/willing to give it another try.

The food was good however the portions were small. Steak frites tasted great but the steaks were very small. Also the lobster mac & cheese was not worth $30 taste wise of portion size. Service was excellent. Great server.

We got sat and our host was friendly and nice. However, our server didn’t properly greet us and did seem very interested in serving us. He didn’t bring us any cutlery and only checked back with us once. Once we were finished and ready to pay he gave us our receipts and walked away without saying anything. My friend and I were shocked because we heard so many good things about the drake and expected more. Overall, we were very disappointed and shocked at how the service was considering how excited we were to dine there.

We have enjoyed the food at Drake very much in the past. We were surprised that the selection at present was so limited, and disappointed that the quality was just barely acceptable. In addition, our server seemed inexperienced and was unfriendly at best.

Thank you to all the staff for hosting 9 of us for a work celebration. The service was amazing and the food was incredible!! The Lobster Mac and Cheese still makes our mouths water at the thought, and the Char dish was to die for.
A big thank you!!!!

Our service was very poor. Food took at least an hour to come out. Our server never came to check in and ask how the food, drinks, or everything else was. They forgot one of the beers we ordered and the server had to be reminded 15min later. The beer still took long to come out afterwards. We were not notified in the beginning that we were not going to be allowed to do separate bills. Once it was time to pay we were told it would have to be on one bill. Overall not a great experience at all.
