We really like drake and continue to return there. This time there were some small issues. Three of us ordered the special which was steak frites and they all came out extremely cold. Luckily the waitress had the kitchen prepare us brand new meals and brought out a free appetizer for us to eat while we waited. I would still go back.
Favorite bistro in Bend. Food and drinks are excellent. I only downgraded the ambience because I was at the window and cold. The food here is consistently delicious! I finally tried the Linguine Cacio e Pepe with fig and proscuitto and it couldn't have been better.
We were able to come in early and sit at the bar while our table was being prepared. Excellent bar service and prompt seating a bit before our reservation. The food was incredible! Excellent salads and flavors galore! We will be coming back!
Great place for upscale dining in Bend at a very reasonable price.
Everyone in our party of four very much enjoyed the evening. Tasty meal, quiet enough to talk but plenty going on to feel like a happening place.
Wow, could be our new go to place! Between the specials and the fried chicken, can’t wait to get back!
The Coho salmon on black saffron rice was outstanding! And the chocolate flourless torte just delicious and beautifully presented.
My fiancé and I had such a great time! We’ve been to Bend before, but this was our first time at the restaurant and we loved it. The food was amazing, the service was incredible, and the atmosphere was lovely.
The bacon wrapped dates were awesome!
Always excellent, one of our ho to restaurants for lunch and dinner
the food and cocktails were good. The popcorn at the beginning was a little too salty this time
The Drake is one of our favorite places to go and eat. Menu is great, food is excellent and service is wonderful. The Fried Brussel Sprouts is a must.
It was just ok. Didn't quite meet our expectations dinner. Great location. Nice atmosphere and pretty good service. Just nit impressed with our meals.
Our meal at Drake was an absolute delight. We booked the res on a whim on our last night in Bend, and we came in with little expectation. We were greeted warmly, then served the absolute best meal of our trip. The staff were attentive, but never hovered, and the cocktails and dishes were not only absolutely delicious, but also had been thoughtfully crafted and assembled. The use of blueberries in our salmon dish was amazing, and the buvette steak was out of this world.
We will make a point to dine at Drake every time we visit Bend, which I hope will happen again soon.
Great atmosphere, great food and server!!
We enjoyed the Buttermilk fried chicken! No bones! Jade, our server, was friendly and professional. Great spot in downtown Bend. We’ll visit again the next time we’re in town. We would recommend!
Great food, great service. Locally sourced from around Oregon and some amazing wines too
Service was inattentive and the burger was terrible.
My clients loved the atmosphere, service and food!!
Vacationing in Bend for a few days.
Totally cool, hip, fun place!! The service was great, the food was great & the cocktails were awesome.
Would definitely go back.
The food and beer were delicious! Service was great too
It's a bar/eatery with excellent food, service and social separation at the tables.
Delicious food, fair price, and great service. I will definitely visit here again.
One of our favorite spits in town. Great food, great service.
Drake is always a solid choice when visiting Bend! I had the experience of eating there a few years ago and the food was great then. I was hoping for a similar experience and was not disappointed! I had the Shrimp and Grits and my husband had Fried Chicken and Sweet Potato Waffles. Both dishes were fantastic and the drinks from the bar were great as well! Make sure you hit this place up if you are visiting!
Nice place. The lunch menu was sub-par. My steak salad was drowning in dressing and my fiancé’s shrimp sandwich was so hard to hold and subsequently kept falling apart. I’d say it was overall decent but it did not meet our expectations. We’d be willing to try their dinner options in the future.
Great desserts at Drake. I enjoyed their lemon drop too! Noise level is high but atmosphere is super enjoyable
Meh. The service was erratic, yet kind. Perhaps it was an off night? Our drink orders were missed and they were out of the shishito pepper starter plate. We opted to sit inside, to avoid the crowds that hovered around the outside tables. Our table was directly across from the open kitchen grill which resulted in a very smoky atmosphere. Better ventilation would be a dramatic improvement for the space. The Nashville Chicken Sammie and Drake burger were very delicious, but our overall experience left a lot to be desired.
We booked a reservation for a group of six. The restaurant can not accommodate a group that size well. The booth we were sat at was very tight.
The cook line is open in the middle of the dining room making the temperature very hot. The staffs conversations can be heard throughout the restaurant. Everyone in our group enjoyed their food and the service but we were all eager to get back outside onto the cooler air. I wouldn’t recommend sitting indoors.
Service was great, food was interesting. Salmon and blueberries not good. The fresh vegetables dishes really good.
Service was wonderful.
We ate outside. My only suggestion would be to clean the cobwebs off the window areas at outside tables, kind of icky.
The beet salad was amazing, as were the shrimp and grits. We sat outside and enjoyed the people watching!
This was our first time back to Drake since the start of COVID-19, and we are happy we went. We started with the Slow Roasted Beets and the Grilled Street Corn. The beets were tender and sweet, the addition of the whipped goat cheese and pistachios rounded out the flavors and texture of the dish. The Street Corn had a jalapeno cream sauce that had the perfect balance of spice and cream.
For our mains, we ordered from the specials board (steak for one, albacore for another), and our third dining companion had the shrimp and grits. The meals were excellent, and attracted attention from passers by (we were seated outside) who couldn't help but ask what we had ordered because "it looked so good!"
We'll definitely add Drake back to our regular dining rotation in Bend.
Incredible food and service. Enjoyed outdoor dining and cocktails too!
We were visiting Bend for the first time and chose Drake from the excellent reviews and for town locAtion. We loved the food - and the popcorn was a hit! However, we’d ordered chicken windows a starter and they were brought eight he food which took a long time to arrive, so that was a bit disappointing. Still, our server was pleasant and the food (shrimp sandwich and steak Cobb salad) was delicious.
We really enjoyed this restaurant. The staff was outstanding and super friendly. Food was awesome. We would definitely visit again when we are in the area.
This was our first visit to The Drake. Excellent experience we would recommend The Drake to our friends anytime
