My wife and I came into the city, and it's Tuesday. A concert and before hand at the Drake. Outstanding food, outstanding service. Non pretentious. Still almost a hidden gem, go...have sushi, have a cocktail or two. Enjoy. We did.

Went there a couple weeks ago. This review is not of the hotel but of the bar. On a positive note the venue is attractive and chic. Really liked the set up and style. Additionally the photo booth they had. However I found it to be overly crowed to the the point it was overwhelming and annoying with the amount... More

The hostess was quite welcoming. Our server was very helpful with the menu. I was surprised when told that we were being seated in a smoking section. I said "Pardon"? I did not know that smoking was legal in a restaurant in Toronto even when seated on an outdoor patio. Food was good and service was excellent!!

I went for the first time years back in February with a girlfriend, it was a Monday evening and we were quickly seated in what appeared to be a quiet part of the restaurant. We are curtly served by a disinterested waitress, I noticed a massive table of food behind and was a little confused, when suddenly the MC comes... More

If you like trendy places, if you like to look at people and to be looked at because you just bought this new tom ford glasses and this new U.O. sweater then you definitely found your spot in this part of toronto. Couple of art pieces on the walls, a bunch of beautiful people, and a menu that looks pretty... More

I love the Drake hotel restaurant. The brunch is especially good and in particular their scones are amazing. It's a bit pricey but not really that bad in comparison to other Toronto spots. Staff are always helpful and friendly. I like the Drake as a night spot too - the roof top in the summer is a great time.

Recently visited with my sweetheart for a date night in the big city (we're country folk). We stayed at the hotel too, which was awesome, see my other review in the hotel section. Anyways, we both really liked the decor and ambiance. Our server seemed a bit odd, but in a good way, I liked him and he was proficient.... More

Quite underwhelming meal. The decor is very groovy and the service was very good so we were disappointed by the bland and uninspired food. Won't go there for food again. Will go for drinks.
