Drake One Fifty Ratings and Reviews

I was disappointed in my experience eating here. I made a reservation for four and they brought us to a six top table that was set for six people.
The presentation of the food was incredibly underwhelming. In contrast to their sister restaurants, 150 failed to be consistent with quality and presentation. I ordered the braised beef cheek and it looked like they just threw the ingredients on to the plate. For something that cost $30, you'd expect something that looked appetizing. Go somewhere else to eat and come here for drinks

Our waiter was very caring and thoughtful. He brought a cup of hot water to warm me up when he saw I was still have my jacket on, he thought I must be feeling cold. I actually did feel cold and the hot water was very much appreciated.

My mum and I went for a "tourist in our own backyard" weekend and found Drake 150 on an internet search for the area. The service was attentive, when family/friends joined later, the staff was accommodating. The drinks were imaginative and tasty, and the cauliflower starter is an absolute MUST try! Thoroughly enjoyed, and I know everyone who came will come back again.
As someone with food allergies, our server was briefed before arriving, recommendations about things to avoid and dishes that could be modified were made without requesting them first, the food was cooked to perfection, and I left intact. Definite plus!

We had a very bad experience as we got seated - we were told we had to leave the table in 2 hrs. Had we known the time limit (and later we were told it only existed that Friday night) we would have gone elsewhere. It was relatively an unpleasant experience at such a hig end restaurant. The restaurant manager came and explained why (which I still don't get - why do people have time limits). Interestingly in 2 hrs all the tables around us were EMPTY! So why did they even do it? Just to be prepared? I think was a bit of greed and bit of inexperience. The manager came and apologized and they gave us the meal for free. However there is one thing you can't buy w money in this world; time! We appreciated the gesture but hadn't seen that friend in 4 months and we lost a good 1 hr out of our 3 hr get together that night, so I will likely not go there and won't take comleagues or friends back either.

Service was great, ambience was great (hopping, with the after-work Thursday crowd). Food was very good for the most part, except my salmon which wasn't as fresh as I'd have liked. My companion's pickerel, on the other hand, was fresh and very well prepared.

Food subpar for the price, ambience and service were phenomenal. Also the handcrafted cocktails, though exceptionally pricey were exquisite. Would not return simply because you do not get much value for your buck.

In some ways it exceeded expectations in others it fell a bit short. Beautiful space, would definitely like to come back for evening drinks at some point. Service was decent. Brunch was good but not really to my personal preferences. Loved the cornbread, hated the bacon. I'm not sure how I feel about the value due to above comments but hope to make it back in the future.

From the decor to the service, the outdoor seating to the amazing food, we were so glad that we chose Drake One Fifty for dinner on our trip to Toronto. Wouldn't hesitate to do the same again! Also, hit up the photo booth!

Good food, very fun ambiance, our service was adequate but I expected more from a restaurant like this. It's amazing how a restaurant can get the food and atmosphere so perfect but can't close it with great service. The service aspect is the easy part.

The food was very good and our waiter was exceptional. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and the ingredients in the dishes, an was the best waiter I have had at a restaurant in a while. One of our party was a vegan and the waiter and chef offered suggestions of substitutions that could be made so dishes were vegan. Once the restaurant got busy it got very noisy and we had to yell to hear each other.

This restaurant was very cool and very representative of Toronto as a whole - artsy, young, and vibrant. Drake 150 has an artist curate the restaurant, providing different exhibits around the bar, kitchen, entry, etc. Would definitely go back!

The service was fast and friendly. Our waitress was helpful with the menu and made recommendations that were wonderful. We shared a number of appetizers - Beef carpaccio; Cerviche and the Drake bread and dips. All were amazing. For dinner we had a range of pizzas - all of them were perfectly cooked and absolutely delish. The housemate pizza sauce was one of the best I have had. Two people in our group had the burger and both said it was hands down the best burger they had ever had. The remaining two members had ribeye steaks which they also said were good. We shared a serving of the Key Lime pie for a small dessert which was perfectly tart. We enjoyed jugs of sangria, some speacialty drinks and wine/beer so I was expecting the bill to be significant - I was pleased when it came in below $500 for our group of 6.
