    Our server, Serina (sorry for the possible misspell) was fantastic. Very personable and professional. The wait time for food to be served was minimal. The steak frites were savory and the fries maybe the best in Bend. All in all a great value. We enjoy the cosmopolitan vibe of the Drake and always feel warmly welcomed there. We highly recommend.

    Having not been in to Drake in some time, we were excited to come back. The restaurant was extremely busy and it took a little time to get drinks. The server was so on point and pleasant, we agreed it really made our experience great. The food was pretty good, also. We got the burrata appetizer. The arugula was a bit wilted and we wished there was some bread to accompany our burrata, but overall it was very solid and good. We both got the oyster cappellini. The sauce and pasta were incredibly delish. The oysters were a bit warm and big for me but my partner loved it. Overall everything was really great and we had a wonderful experience. Thanks so much!

    We were disappointed that our favorite dish was out (we get it, that happens), but the alternate entree we ordered was flavorless and bland. We both ordered the Fisherman’s Rice, and were quite disappointed in that dish :(

    Disappointing. Good cocktails but slow service, undercooked scallops, fishy mussels and beef dishes were under- seasoned. They did comp the scallop dish. Had great reviews- maybe Tues is an off night.

    As always, food is fresh and delicious and the service is top notch. Their summer menu has a lot of great, lighter fare perfect for the warmer weather. But speaking of warmer weather, they apparently don't have AC so the place was sweltering and the doors were open to allow some air to get in, which then compounds the street noise from nearby cars on top of the already noisy interior space and you basically have to shout to hear the person on the other side of the table.

    It felt like AC was down, it was hot inside. The menu was quite limited. Pork chop was charred outside and dry inside. Steak was also charred outside. Fried chicken had too much batter and not juicy inside. Our waiter was nice but he charged other people meal on our credit card and pending extra charges cancellation. Overall, it was disappointing.

    Chose Drake because we wanted dog friendly outdoor dining. This fit the bill. They were so hospitable and able to seat our party of 10. Food was great. Ambience was great. Only slight down side was the traffic noise from the adjacent street.

    Had high hopes but the food is overpriced and undelivered. Likely can get away with it bc they’re right DT. Also 20 mins after my food came, for the glass of wine to show up and one beverage never came at all. Not terrible food but should knock down prices. A lot of other truly fantastic places in the same $$ range in Bend!

    Had a 8:15 reservation to sit outside but didn’t get seated until almost 9:15. When we went to order, they were out of the Heirloom Tomato Toast, Caesar Salad, Grilled Prawns, and Oyster Cappellini. So were they out bc we got seated an hour late or already out? Dunno. To be fair, they comped our drinks but the Indefinite Hiatus was so bad, I had to send it back. The Sassy Local tried too hard / spicy. The Oaxaca OF was good. The roasted cauliflower and shrimp cappelini were disappointingly pretty below average for the price. The roasted Brussels were really good. Overall, think they were just having a rough night bc our waitress and the hostess were very apologetic and nice. Definitely happens but we were pretty bummed.

    Have had birthday here a number of years and had a two year hiatus. Not the same. Favorite bartender long gone. Favorite pork chop meal arrives with all side dishes cold. The go to reheat and it comes back same, and with overcooked pork-chop. Compensated with comping meal but that doesn’t make it right. Will admit outdoor dining on that busy corner is nothing like indoor ambiance. Ah well.

    We sat outside with a dog and baby on Sunday evening, nice tables but a lot of street noise. Seemed under staffed, service was kind but very slow. Brought the wrong salad and took a while to replace it. Brussel sprouts and fried chicken were great, roasted cauliflower was very bland. Would recommend during a slower time.

    The food was underwhelming. I ordered one of the specials of the day, which was a Tombo Tuna With Asian slaw. It was badly overcooked. Even if I have been cooked correctly the flavors were completely uninteresting. There is a lot going on in the restaurant, but the waitstaff Seemed relatively uninterested in us. When they asked us what we thought of the food, they were not looking in our direction and we’re not really interested in what we had to say. This includes our waiter, the manager and the host-person

    Drake & Washington have outstanding food & real good service. Our only complaint is, at both, having to yell across the table to have a conversation. Wish they would add some acustic tiles or something to help with noise level. Takes away from a relaxing dinner.

    Unfortunately, the management of Drake was lacking the night we visited. We were informed upon sitting down of a few items on the menu that were not available. This is not unusual. However, once everyone ordered our server came back to let us know that some of the items that we had ordered were now no longer available. When we ordered wine, the server came back and said it was unavailable. In all we had five different items we ordered that we ultimately could not get. We felt for the server. She handled it well but it was clear she was uncomfortable having to return so many times to tell us that something had run out. This was for a 7:00 pm dinner so it wasn’t so late one might expect things to have run out.

    Drake doesn’t disappoint. The Brussels sprouts were sublime. This is a refreshing new take on the humble sprout. Rich and satisfying, the dates and cashews give the dish amazing breadth. The cioppino was silky and subtle. The Bendie in Paris was a truly elevated burger

    Brought me the wrong drink (I gagged). There was a weird smell all night even though we were outside. The burgers for all 3 people were burnt. The wait staff never came by to check on us. They replaced one of our burgers, but 2 of us were too hungry and ate the burnt meat. Would not go back

    I have enjoyed going here for years. Great ambience, has a east coast - diner feeling with fun layout, you can watch people and the street on the corner, fun. The staff has always been great, i can tell they really care who works here. I have always been a fan of the hamburger and shrimp/grits, my go to options. The fried chicken is crazy good - the seasoned crust is wow. The owners seems to care about their patrons, go over and beyond to making sure you are happy with your experience, fixing any issues that may arise with any restaurant. With rising cost and staff shortages, I am sure it is hard to run a restaurant at full efficiency. I recommend that you try them out. They are very accommodating and will make sure your meal is excellent.

    Lively with good menu choices from light to substantial. Excellent wine and spirits list. Accommodated our increased party size. Very attentive service. Food is sourced locally to the extent possible and was innovative and tasty. Particularly loved my asparagus with bacon and poached egg, and the Carlton Farms pork chop with polenta rocked.

    Food is very good We had several appetizers and the cioppino. All quite good Service is really bad. The hostess in particular is a disgrace. She pit us at a tiny table for two. The next table was quite a bit larger and also set for two. When we asked for it she dismissively said it was for four. Less than 5 minutes later she pit two people there. At least she HD the decency to avoid eye contact for the rest of our stay. Our server was initially friendly and helpful. When the cioppino came out, however, we asked for some additional toast for dipping. She apparently turned that order in and then proceeded to go to a somewhat hidden corner of the restaurant where she gossiped with another server until we finished our meal. At that time, she came over and announced that she had (proactively) removed the additional toast from our bill. Is this the best a reputable restaurant like Drake can do?
