    We always have the best experience at Drake! Wonderful service and great food! The bartender was wonderful and made me the best espresso martini even though it’s not on their menu!

    You don't always get what you pay for..Our entrees were overpriced and not very good--we could have done much better cooking at home. We're willing to splurge once in awhile and we get that prices have gone up, but at the same time you hope for a good meal when you go out. My pork shank entree was barely lukewarm. It was served with greasy, overcooked (chewy!) baby potatoes, a couple of pork rinds(!) and no vegetable that I could discern. The lukewarm sauce was not bad. A better accompaniment might have been mashed potatoes, pureed cauliflower, polenta, etc. These can't be that costly but it felt like Drakes was trying to skimp on everything. My husband asked for his burger to be medium and it was dry and overcooked. His French fries were the worst--the skinny type, but dry and tough. Pine Tavern's $10 happy hour burger and fries, (or Brother Jons or Bend Burger Company's) blow Drake's high grade of beef burger and fries out of the water. Despite the not-great food we had a nice time, enjoying the atmosphere, our drinks and the good service. We didn't (and don't like to) complain but we probably won't be going back. Too bad---it's a great environment and location.

    Drake is one of my go-to restaurants in downtown Bend. In my view, they maintain a really great balance of upscale details, while remaining casual enough to meet just about any occasion. The service is some of the best in-town, with knowledgable wait-staff and FOH managers that have exceeded my every expectation almost every time I've eaten there.

    Tonight my friend and I met up at Drake for dinner. I made a 5:00pm reservation. We ordered the steak special and a couple glasses of wine each. Shortly before 6:00pm, our waitstaff told us another reservation was arriving for our table in 10 minutes! I really couldn’t believe we were being asked to leave. We weren’t offered more wine or dessert. I took this photo at that time. To be fair, it did fill up more after another half hour or so. Won’t be back…

    It was early New Years Eve which may have accounted for the noise level but service was exemplary and food was excellent. With all the great restaurants in Bend I forgot how nice Drake was. We will be adding back into our regular rotation of restaurants.

    We had dinner reservations which did not get a a guarantee of the food offered on and off the menu. Everything we were ordering was out. Service was good. This was our second time here trying to give Drake another chance. The kitchen preformed bad both times. Less than impressed. We ended up leaving and going to another restaurant after this visit. Very disappointed!

    We love Drake and come every year when we visit Bend every winter. The first year we came the restaurant was over booked and the owners actually drove us to their other restaurant across town (Washington) and paid for our meal!!!! We now eat at Washington and Drake on every visit to Bend:).

    Great to have Drake open for lunch again. Hostess was friendly and accommodated my request for a booth. While the menu is limited, my selection (entree salad) was excellent. Caroline was our server. Though "in training", she did a terrific job. Nice job by Drake as usual!

    Duck confit is typically the leg and thigh; here it was just a leg. Accompanying sides were bland. Overpriced at $34, even for Bend, and $28 for fried chicken!

    Drake is one of my favorite restaurants in town. I love the atmosphere, especially right now when it's all decorated for Christmas - very cozy and fun. The hospitality was excellent, as always. It is always so welcoming. Lastly, food was delicious, as always. The fried chicken never disappoints. Others in my party enjoyed the butternut pasta. Fantastic experience all around. Will be back soon. Thanks to the Drake team for making this place a favorite neighborhood joint!

    Their Wednesday special, Steak Frites, could have been all around better. Yes, it is a good price for meat, tiny salad, alcohol beverage. However, the meat was tough & really needed a method of tenderizing. The steak knife was not sharp enough to handle the meat plus the meat was served on a cold plate, which transferred to the meat making it tepid at best. All around mediocre experience with the meat. Looks like the cocktails are good by observing the bartender and product output. Will visit again for other meals before deciding the worth of Drake. Please, the serving of popcorn is silly. Would rather have the option of paying for bread service.
