I went there to catch up with a friend. We got a nice patio table. Other than that, it was very loud, and the service and food were quite average.

The best thing for me about drake 150 was how great and well informed our waitress was. The wines we had were excellent, love that she offered me testers. Food was good and very creative. Wine perhaps abit over priced. I did struggle with the noise level. I know you cater to a younger crowd but I think some nice cocktail/dinner time jazz could create a really cool vibe Maybe leave the loud music to later. Jazz always adds some class to a bar

I had business lunch with 3 of us. Two of us ordered the Salmon...1st time out it was overcooked and even after replacement it was not done properly. My client was not impressed and neither was I. Salmon was also overpriced for the portion size.

Our waiter was nice, but forgot a few things at times... Hey it can happen. Most of all the food was not worth the cost. Disappointing. The half bird was ok... I asked for a salad as an option for side. They brought a mix leaf salad that looked like I could have grabbed them myself from the plastic container... Other guests thought food was just ok, nothing special.

Brunch was amazing. We had the smoked salmon eggs Benny and the French toast. Everything was decadent and delicious. Try the earl gray macarons too! Service was also impeccable. They seated us in the middle since it was just two of us, but I asked to be moved to the edge where they would usually seat 3 people and after a quick check, they moved us over no problem. Try the earl gray macarons too! Yum!

The hostesses the server and the sommelier were very attentive to all our requests: sitting on a busy patio , cooling the wine, and giving us time to sit after our meal. TheDJ had great music as well. My friends were impressed!

Wonderful time. Went there for dinner before the Symphony.
Too pricey for Lunch
Haven' t seen tables that close together since I was last in Manhattan. Please not, Toronto is NOT Manhattan. Too close, mans too loud, but if only my drink had been adult sized, I wouldn't have been too bothered about paying $15 for a cocktail. Staff and service were lovely.

I was very disappointed by my visit to Drake 150 after multiple great visits in the past. The service was beyond words awful. Waiter took our order then never came back to check on us again. The pizza I had raved about to my colleagues was nothing like in the past and we didn't even have the opportunity to tell the waiter since Jordy never came by to check on us. Thankfully we were able to tell maybe the manager when she came by to clear our plates and she gave us a free dessert platter. Jordy came by to give us plates for the dessert we had "ordered" and was shocked and exclaimed "you should have told me you didn't like the pizza" when we told him why we got it. We would have, Jordy, if you had bothered to come by. Yes it was lunch and busy, but he clearly walked by glanced at us and walked away. It was a team lunch I had taken my team out for and it was an embarrassingly bad experience! While the burger was still good, I will certainly never be recommending or coming back again. Truly unacceptable.
Coup de coeur
Everything was perfect. In French, we say: Coup de cœur because we love the food, the service, the ambiance. An incredible experience for foodies like my frieds and I.
Great selection, too salty.
We very much enjoyed our meal here, and the menu was creative and interesting. Unfortunately both entrees were very salty and it took away from what was otherwise an excellent experience.
Food was ok; bit overpriced; eclectic decor
Food was just ok. Had expected more based on the other reviews. Had had much better charcuterie plates. Dumplings were just ok. Salads very expensive for what you get. Meatballs were good. Frites were yummy. Probably would not go again for food. Drinks were delicious; would go back for drinks.
Awesome atmosphere, but lacks good veggie options
Not a lot of selection for vegetarians unfortunately. The 1 vegetarian friendly pizza was overpriced and bland. Go to Libretto or Queen Margarita instead. Great bar scene though. I would definitely go back for a drink or have drinks on the patio with a friend before dinner.

A non-corporate gem in the heart of the financial district.
My wife and enjoyed a great meal here. Although it was quiet...a Sunday night during the May long weekend, it was a very nice place to dine. The service was outstanding. Our meals were great. We would go back!

I found the stool seating close to the windows uncomfortable. My quinoa dish had a pleasant taste, however it was visually unappealing and lacked in texture. The key lime tart was delicious and beautifully presented. My husband and I have been to Drake for a drink, and I enjoyed that experience much more than the dinner I had with my friend.

We were somewhat disappointed in the experience - having enjoyed the other Drake restaurants (Drake Hotel, Devonshire) many times. It was definitely busy - even at 7:30pm on a Monday so we ended up sitting close to the kitchen. The food was a bit disappointing - I had the suckling pig - the skin was fantastic: crisp, excellent - but the meat was not as tender as I would have liked. The other two members of our party had the burger and the steak - both good. We started with the calarmari - interesting mix of flavours, but overcooked and the arugula salad which was excellent. The table was very uncomfortable - no matter how I sat, I hit the centre pillar of the table with my knee. I would go back any time for drinks, but probably not for dinner. At the cost, there are much better options out there.
Great place with lots of charm.
We were very happy to find this little hidden gem. Upscale dinning experience without the price. Service and good was fabulous. Highly suggest this place. Wish there was one back in the states.
The first time I came to your restaurant ...
The first time I came to your restaurant the food was amazing, the lobster agnolotti was my new favorite. This time I got your half hen and my girlfriend got your suckling pig. They were extremely dry and terrible, if it wasn't my friend's birthday I would have sent them back. The appetizers pork and shrimp dumplings and calamari where very good and my friend liked the burger. I am very disappointed that that the food was so bad on two out of three dishes, I expected much more given the price point and reputation. Will no longer recommend.

Dumplings were absolutely delicious, and pizza was great and unique as well! Eclectic decor and friendly service. Will definitely be back.
Really good food but soooooooooo noisy
Great spot for lunch but when the restaurant gets full - I need to be able to read lips from across the table, and ask the wait staff to repeat themselves all the time. Since everyone has to speak loudly to hear each other, that just escalates the whole problem across the restaurant. This is the only reason why I would hesitate to go back as my ears hurt just thinking about it. Otherwise food and service were excellent.

Good place to meet for a downtown lunch. Good food and ambience. Not pretentious.
Cubano sandwiches were to die for!
Loved the food and the service was friendly and prompt. The restaurant is beautiful inside. Would definitely go again.

Went there for mothers day. They had a prix fixe menu and it was spectacular. We had a great time, and great food. Highly recommended.
Great, but not for brunch
The drake one fifty was really cool. I would love to go back there for drinks with friends. The decor is very interesting, they've got a great cocktail list and a fun photo booth! The food I had was pretty good too. Unfortunately I went for brunch with my mom. The music was pretty loud for a Sunday brunch (would have been more acceptable for a Saturday night) and was eventually turned down after some older customers came in. The seating is not comfortable and there wasn't enough table room for our whole brunch (again much more well suited as a bar) Our server was awful m. It was a fixed menu and we were there over 2 hours. luckily our server seemed to be tending to only two or three other tables and the service in the rest of the restaurant seemed much faster. A few other servers came by to check on us several times.
Great Mother's Day Brunch
Solid brunch outing by The Drake 150. Glad to be able to get the west side vibe a little more central. Prix-Fixe offered great value and might have been even too much food. Well executed by some great cooks(Nice to see the CDC hustling) and effiecient service staff. Welcoming and professional vibe for the whole meal. The only thing I could say negatively is that maybe when offering a Prix-Fixe meal you include an offering for someone not inclined to eat meat/fish? Especially in the morning. A non-issue for us but two of the three choices in the meal were fish based and the other was pork. Would have been nice to see three varied options to give a little more variety. I would imagine the kitchen would be able to accommodate but not every diner is inclined to ask. Just my two cents. Thanks for another enjoyable meal, Drake.
Prix Fixe value
I recently attended the Pop-up Opera event at Drake One-Fifty. The portions of the entrée served to my party were very small . I would be reluctant to attend future prix fixe events at this restaurant.
ANOTHER DRAKE SUCCESS STORY !
Great Food and great Service will have us coming back to this Venue. Our Server also happened to be one of the two Sommeliers on Staff (Bonus) and was most helpful with 'Pairings'. The Seafood was fresh and done to perfection. Being a Friday night and an awesome Jays game, created a vibrant bar scene .

The server was both knowledgeable and friendly. Great experience
Always good, quick and tasty
I probably come to Drake OneFifty every 2 weeks or so for business lunches and it's a great place for that type of meal. The service is good and quick, the food is tasty and the ambiance is lively enough to be interesting but quiet enough that you can have a worthwhile discussion. It seems like everyone else has started to realize this though so it's starting to get packed at lunch and this time I actually had to book to get a table for 4 people.
Delicious food and cozy atmosphere
Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. Our orders came in a timely fashion: we never felt pressured and could enjoy conversing. We ordered the pasta and the chicken which were delicious! Our desert and coffee were equally delectable. After we took care of the bill, we lingered more. We did not feel pressured to leave in spite of the fact that the restaurant was bustling. A great first lunch experience indeed! I would come back for sure and recommend it to my friends!
