    Great food, as always, and the ambiance is fun, upbeat, and a great place to dine! It was Cabaret week when we attended that evening, so the live music on the piano was an added bonus.

    First of all, loved the ambiance. There was constant music (no breaks) and it was all terrific! Sort of "our kind" of tunes. The staff is great ... helpful, accommodating, friendly. Drew himself even stops by. And loved the food. Some favorites: Drew’s salad, the Pear salad and the Brie pizza with grapes which we asked for crispy and actually got it crispy. I love unique pizzas. John thought it would be nice to have a basic pepperoni in addition to the available options. On the whole, it was a VERY pleasant evening.

    Drew's a a delightful white tablecloth piano bar with excellent Happy Hour deals and the food is delicious without being overpriced. The staff is attentive and very handsome. It's one of my favorite after-work spots in the neighborhood. Last evening almost everyone in the restaurant sang with piano accompaniment. I some circumstances that would be something to cringe at, however all who sang had excellent voices and I found it lovely.

    Friendly waitress and attentive. Limited wine selection IMHO, but fairly priced. Creative menu options with quality, well prepared food. An expected Boys Town crowed, so there’s that. Definitely worth visiting again.

    While the food was good, they mixed up or second course (sat my date’s food in front of me and mine in front of him) and brought us both the same dessert even though he had ordered something else. Also, while the live singing was a nice touch, it was too loud. I found myself having to shout or wait until the singing stopped to carry on a conversation; not a very conducive atmosphere for a first date.

    We really wanted to love this place being local to our home we were hoping it would become our regular go to place. But after our experience I’m not sure we’d go back. Firstly, I want to be clear that food and drinks were good. But this was massively overshadowed by the really crappy service. Firstly the place was super busy which I guess is to be expected on a Friday evening but I’m talking hectic and rowdy busy. The tables are too crowded and there is insufficient space for the wait staff to even pass between tables. Not that there was really wait staff to speak of, which brings me to the next point. Unfortunately the service was very erratic and poorly organised. Literally the only member of staff who was attentive in any way was the poor bar man who was absolutely run off his feet covering a busy bar as well as waiting tables. So credit to him for looking after us as best he could. Maybe they were having a bad evening and were short of staff. But with so many exceptional places to eat in the neighborhood we will likely eat elsewhere in future.

    Drinks and food are worth it alone!!!!! But the service is very basic not really friendly friendly but bare minimum. Back part needs some sprucing up a little. If they updated the ambiance factor I think this place can draw in a lot of business

    The restaurant itself is very pretty. The service was great from the minute we walked in the door. I went with a close friend for a catch up and were lucky to hear some live piano/cabaret music before we left. Both of us loved our meal and the drinks were also delicious. It's definitely a place I'd go back to and plan to.

    We went to Drew's last year during restaurant week. It was this quiet little bistro with a French focused menu. During this visit, it seemed to have changed its focus to a supper club with live music, tvs with sports playing at the bar and much less of a French Bistro vibe. It seems that this establishment is struggling with its identity. If you are a supper club with cabaret acts, don't have sports playing on tvs in in the bar. If you are a bistro, don't have live music disrupting conversation. I honestly don't think this space is large enough for a baby grand piano and live music because it eliminates your ability to interact with your fellow diners. You also can barely hear the wait staff. We also were disappointed with some of the food preparation as well as I had indicated that we were celebrating a birthday and it was not acknowledged. It's unfortunate the changes that have occurred in the past year. We won't be back.
