    We were here on a Tuesday night and the place was not very busy but waited 15 minutes to be brought water and to be asked about any other drinks. Buttermilk fried chicken was fantastic, but Braised short ribs were so-so.

    I love eating at the Drake. But when there is a large crowd of friends, the noise level in there makes ordinary conversation impossible. Last Friday, I left the restaurant with my ears ringing.

    Came here before a concert downtown on a Sunday night. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere is okay except for the TV blaring in the corner and people screaming for their favorite football team. Not exactly a fine dining experience with $32 entrees and $18 appetizers if you have to shout to be heard over the din. That aside, our food was mediocre at best. My wife had the vegetarian entree of Wild Mushroom Bolognese. It came out with no mushrooms at all so they quickly sauteed up a side dish of rubbery and inedible mushrooms. Her meal was basically a horrible pile of mush, so she shared mine. The special of Cod Fish and Chips was good but overpriced and the Manzanita Melt was okay. All in all, kind of a major disappointment, but that seems to be par for the course here in Bend. Lots of mediocre and overpriced restaurants to choose from.

    First time dining at Drake but not the last. The drink menu was interesting & creative, we really enjoyed the sabor de noche & indefinite hiatus. The dinner was great! There were a number of delicious vegan choices and I had the grilled Char which was awesome.

    Drake just updated their dinner menu with some new items. My group went for the tried and true with the always awesome fried chicken and one of the cool new salads with beets and greens + chicken. I elected for the seafood special which was branzino with mussels and clams in a curry broth over rice. Doing Dry January so had a herbal infused one. Always a great go to before or after Tower Theater event.

    We made reservations based on the menu posted on Open Table (pork chop)....but menu was totally different. If Open Table is going to include menus...to please keep them current. We still had a nice time but had to settle for something else to order.

    I’ve always had great service at this restaurant & my dining experience on me New Year’s Eve was no different. However the food here is not as good anymore. The strip steak was really fatty & not good. The hassleback potatoes were chewy & a bit undercooked. I used to love this place but this was the second time I had a mediocre meal there. I’ll stick to going there for drinks only.

    The food here is really good. We had the curry, the schnitzel, burgers and salads. The food reflects the seasons and there is a wide variety to please everyone. And, if you are going to enjoy a dry January, or are just looking for a nice non-alcoholic festive drink, then Haley, one of the bartenders, will definitely have something special for you. We highly recommend Drake!

    There are nicer places downtown . The crab cakes with salad was overpriced..the salad was unimpressive. The company was the redeeming factor and the glass of wine was nice.

    The food was bland. The Shrimp Scampi had 5 very small shrimp, the noodles tasted sour, and looked like your mother cut them up for you to eat. The side salad had so little dressing that you couldn't tell if it was even applied. The Fish and Chips tasted good, but very small amount of cod and it was crumbled. We havebeen to Drake several years ago and it was much better.

    We had a wonderful reunion with friends and a family member over drinks, appetizers and dinner. We greatly appreciated the flexibility of the staff in getting us to our table earlier than our reservation, and letting us wait to order full dinners when the dinner menu was available. We all complimented our server, Haley, who was outstanding. We'll definitely be back.

    We are not restaurant snobs but the food was not outstanding. Was excited to see French Onion Soup on menu. However, it not like any FOS I’d before…kinda blended or something. The Wienerschnitzel did not have much flavor.

    Thankfully I had been given a gift card for this place otherwise I don't think I would choose to eat here on my own. I like to look at the menu before I go somewhere so I have an idea. However when we got there, the menu was nowhere close to what was online. I mentioned it and our server says the menu changes regularly or at least 4 times a year. Then sometime should either remove the menu or update it. There wasn't really much that I wanted. I ended up getting the fried chicken. The chicken was good but the mashed potatoes were gummy and needed salt. My husband's pasta also needed salt and could use some more flavor. It just missed the mark. Tables were so close to each other I felt like I was almost sitting at their table. Maybe a foot or two from each other. The place was okay, but wouldn't spend my own money here.

    Wine bottle opened, left on table, server did not pour. Ask emphatically for steak med rare, came med well w/ thick gray band around the middle slightly pink. Re-fired the steak to med rare but the sides were cold! And I asked my server to be sure the sides were hot when they brought the re-fired steak. I was left eating my steak off a bread plate, they returned the re-fired sides and the brocollini was still not hot. My wife did like the Shepherd's Pie. Spoke to the manager and he took my dish off the bill. Really disappointed in our return to the restaurant from several years ago when we had a very good experience. Not the same service or attention to detail preparing dishes. Will also add the steak was 4 thin slices that couldn't have even been 8oz for $38. Probably will not be back.

    We ordered steak and frites special. Always enjoyed, however the steak portion seemed to have shrunk this time. I know it is a small portion but was noticeably smaller this time. We enjoyed the wine though!
