The Drake Ratings and Reviews
Yes I have rated everything outstanding. I feel this resteraunt is a unique dinning experience in Oklahoma City. Fish is the star and the fish is fresh and everything I have ever had has been prepared perfectly. The oysters were top notch. The Harimasa Crudo keeps me coming back...i would never eat at the Drake and not have this dish. The service has always been very knowledgeable. This trip the alchemist behind the bar whipped up some perfect cocktails, in the past we have only had wine which has always been paired well. We don't get out to eat often, but when we do the Drake is at the top of our list.
The crab croquettes and our waiter were the highlights of the night. The wine recommended was on point. The paella was good, but I have had better ones there (some lack of consistency there). The lemon cloud pie was the best way to end the night. A lovely evening without a doubt. I just wish the acoustic was better; it gets pretty loud inside.
Second time to the Drake and it did not disappoint. We were in town from Dallas for an OU game and knew we had to visit this amazing restaurant once again. The servers are very knowledgeable and will always steer you in the right direction, especially with the oyster menu. Do yourself a favor and visit this restaurant when you are in Oklahoma City.
Holy Cow! The best food I've had in a long time and our server was out of this world.....courteous,efficient AND knowledgeable. Diners must try their lemon pie, hot bread, hush puppies, catfish and scallops. (the scallops may have been a little undercooked, as was the bacon on my salad.) I can't wait for my sister to come home so that we can dine here again. Keep up the good work!!
The Drake is our go-to date option when we come up to the City from Norman. The quality of the food, combined with the outstanding service sets this place apart. The fact that you can get fresh, high-quality seafood in Oklahoma City is shocking. I wouldn't eat it anywhere else, except for Sushi Neko (also outstanding).
Our food was excellent, oysters were really fresh and all the appetizers we tried were great. Our server wasn’t the best, think he had too many tables to cover so he kept forgetting to replace appetizer plates and silverware. Staff was friendly, just a little haphazard with their deliver.
All in all, definitely plan to dine at the Drake frequently.
GREAT seafood. We had a party of four, all seafood lovers. We were all very happy with our dinner selection. From the fresh selection of varying oysters on the half shell to the redfish, turbo and tuna poke, all was excellent. Great drinks as well. I forget what the called the pie for dessert but, it was reminiscent of an excellent, light key lime pie. Our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and specials. A perfect birthday celebration.
I had only eaten at The Drake once during lunch and that was when it first opened. I felt like the food portions were small, but I also know we often eat much larger portions that we should. I will say that the dinner portion was adequate and we could not leave without having the lemon cloud pie. I think that is the main reason we chose to eat there on Tuesday night.
Absolutely wonderful experience. Decor/Ambience was excellent. Service was exceptional. Food quality was amazing! Overall money spent was not bad at all! I don't like the area where they are located but other than that totally awesome experience. Some might like that area, but I am not a fan of it.
Decent food and great service.
$15 for a chicken sandwich that was good, but not great, was a little pricey. Paid $15 for a hush puppy appetizer with ham. They were tasty, but some were not done in the middle; had to scoop out the wet cornmeal batter. After dessert and tip, the bill for three was $127. We could have eaten steak at Cattleman’s for less.
We had seen great reviews on the Drake and were familiar with the area before the renovation, so wanted to experience this renaissance. We were very pleased with the renovation of the building, and the quality of the whole experience. The menu provided a good selection, the prices were reasonable, and the service was attentive and professional. The food was delivered with good presentation and was excellently prepared. We had a round booth which was a great seating option for the four of us. We did note that the conversational noise level seemed high even though the restaurant was only about half occupied, and there were times we had to lean forward to carry on a conversation -- a minor but manageable issue for us. Would certainly recommend the Drake, and will plan to return.
We went here for our anniversary. The food was good, but it was a little over-priced for what we experienced. The service was also a little slow. While the atmosphere and food were good, we probably won't choose this for a special occasion again. However, I would recommend it for a casual date night or for drinks and appetizers.
So grateful for the guidance of our server, steering us toward some really delicious things. The crudo was so elegant, and refreshing. The hushpuppies are reason enough to go. I only wish I’d trusted the look on his face when I insisted on ordering the roasted cod. In a restaurant that seems to have so much fun with its food, this dish seemed so dull. I didn’t love the chocolate hushpuppies, which other people on OpenTable seem to love. I thought they were dry, and chalky, and nothing that was described. I’d definitely go back. So much of what we had was great. And the service was swift and helpful.
Let me start by saying that I hate seafood. I can’t even eat salmon, heaven for bid something like oysters.
But I absolutely love this place! Our server was outstanding and really let us find what we wanted in our own time, and made some excellent recommendations. I had tried oysters before but this was the first time I ever found myself getting more than one, and the lobster roll was to die for. However if there is one thing to get it is the HUSH PUPPIES. The honey butter was life changing. The bar had amazing drinks as well.
The only minimal concern is that it is a little pricey, but that is to be expected with the quality of food. I don’t live in OKC but will definitely make this place a regular stop when I come back home.
I have had the great opportunity to eat in wonderful restaurants all over the world and I can honestly say that The Drake is the most beautiful spot I’ve ever dined in. My husband enjoyed an impromptu Saturday brunch on our way through OKC and I’m already hoping to return for dinner very soon. The brunch food and drinks were fantastic! Our server was extremely sweet and attentive as well! All around fantastic experience!
Overall we love The Drake, have eaten there several times. The service is always great and I really like that they tell you what each item is when served. We had the baked cod, fisherman platter and lobster roll all of which were very good. The only negative I have is the fries were very tasty, but only warm when served. Still highly recommend.
