    The food and the patio were amazing but the server was awful! I am a huge diner and go out all the time~ and have never had a server who was so off beat, slow, and could really care less. We ordered a chateau at 96 dollars and a bottle of wine, the wine didn’t come before the meal and mind you, my husband had been waiting to order a cocktail and that never happened so he waited for the wine, which was upsetting because we were half way through our chateau and almost ready for wrapping. We took the other half of the bottle home.

    The Drake has really lost it's quality. The dining room is just sad. If you're not going to update the furniture, lighting, general and present as a special event place, why would anyone want to go to the restaurant. Our server was very good, but her coworker was making a case for our server having to work on her birthday.

    Disappointing. We went for Afternoon Tea. The food was mediocre. We were looking forward to the scones… what they call scones are absolutely not scones, they were more like not very good chocolate chip cookies. Really should not try to pass those off as scones. Service was so-so. We were never without anything but we were told the salmon was crab, the person who brought the tea tray didn’t know what any of the items were etc. The room that tea was served it wasn’t great - dull and dated. Would not go back for afternoon tea unfortunately.

    Lovely environment. Was not expecting a tea party of noisy little girls being there so that did put a damper on the occasion. Perhaps have one day a month set aside and advertised for the under 10 crowd. The food was just ok. It's been a couple years since I've been there thanks to Covid. Not what I'm used to with a traditional British tea. Could use more sandwiches and the veggies with balsamic are certainly unnecessary. Food for afternoon tea should never require a knife and fork. It should all be finger food. Staff was lovely. Nice tea selection. Hopefully the food options will have improved when I return next year. The Colonial Room is gorgeous and the food should live up to the environment.

    Food was good. Service was slow and busboy/assistant was very new/raw- didn’t seem to know what a soup skin was, took a dish away when we weren’t finished, spilled iced when filling water glasses, etc. was very disjointed in the ambiance of the room- was the kind of space you expect to get complimentary Continental breakfast, not fine dining

    What a terrible experience. I made reservations a month in advance to be seated on the exclusive patio only to be bumped to the veranda. I wasn’t even told that I was being relocated, they just seated me on the veranda and when I inquired about it I was told that the patio was reserved for a private event. They never mentioned this when I confirmed my reservation that day prior. Then my husband and I were sat next to a table with a large family celebrating a birthday which was loud and had children running around. After the family calmed down, the private party started making announcements with a very loud microphone. Then they started giving things away, so that every 2 minutes the party started cheering very loudly. Throughout the entire dinner I had a very hard time communicating with my husband; I was seated between the outdoor event and an indoor wedding event, it was like we were just a part of one large, obnoxious party rather than the romantic dinner date that it was intended to be. On top of all of this the service was incredibly slow. I wasn’t even able to place my dinner order until 1.5 hours after we arrived. This is nothing new, my friends a I had very slow service in January when we dined in the igloos. The only enjoyable aspect of this whole experience was that the food was very good. I will never return to the Drake in Oakbrook for another dining experience.

    It was our 51st anniversary. It went unnoticed even though it was marked on Open Table. We were revisiting the Drake because we spent many dates in the late 60s and early 70s in the Lodge. Outside dining was lovely. We were one of three tables. Waitress was not attentive. Fortunately the food was delicious. This night didn't meet the memories we had of the Drake.

    Be here before and it’s usually awesome. This time, my wife’s order was incorrect. We sent it back and it still came back wrong. At that point she made due but it put a damper on what was supposed to be a belated anniversary dinner. Otherwise, the patio was great.

    I visited the Colonial Room with 3 other people. 3 of the 4 of us were not happy at all with the meal. I didn't finish mine baked Halibut with stir fry veggies and rice. Veggies were greasy, rice was mushy. Fish did not taste good at all. I left the majority of it on the plate and only ate what I did because I was so hungry. Salmon customer was not satisfied either stating, "It's not good." Chicken customer said, "no flavor." Hamburger was the only person satisfied. The service was very slow. Yes-understaffed like so many others. Didn't hold this against the waiter in any way. Took a long time to get drinks from the bar and the same with food to table. I will not dine here again. The charcuterie boards going to other tables looked good. It's probably an ok place for a drink and board, nice atmosphere, but certainly not for a meal.

    We went for my sons birthday! Because of rain we couldn’t sit out on the terrace which I’m sure would have been much better. We were too close to the cafe and it was noisy. The room we sat in was the Ballroom and it was small and the music was loud. The singer was excellent though and the food was good. David our server was very good.

    Service was great. A little disappointed I put a note in that it was for birthday celebration and nothing happened I even left a message at restaurant about birthday too. Other than that it was very noisy the downtown location wasn’t that loud, and the atmosphere was nicer with decor but food and service was great.
