Drake One Fifty Ratings and Reviews
We found the service intelligent and considerate, the menu inventive and adapted to many sensitivities, the food exceptionally tasty. The atmosphere is engaging even for people of a certain age who wish to talk and find it hard to fight the noise. No matter, the evening was lovely and made us feel somewhat younger. Thank you
Food was great. I especially recommend the house made ricotta cheese. I also got the burger which was very well done. The service was sub par. It was prompt, however staff was not friendly. Our waiter was not friendly, neither were the bussers, nor the staff that great you. Would not return because of this reason alone.
The atmosphere of the restaurant is great. When I walked in I the thought that came to mind was 'very nice place, I will go here more often'. However after dinner I came to the conclusion I will not come back. The value for for money is poor. Although the food quality is good, the pricing is totally off. Not worth it. There are better alternatives in the GTA.
The highlight of the evening was our server who was lovely and attentive. The rest was downhill - all of the food tasted like (and presented like) it was cooked in tons of oil and butter. The portions were ridiculously small for the price as were the drinks. Will not be going back anytime soon.
We went on Valentines Day and had the prix fix meal which was delicious. The only downside was the regular menu wasn't offered and it was our first visit.
The restaurant was busy but no crazy so to limit the menu to an $85 pre fix or the bar menu wasn't the best offering.
We did love the food.
Prices are way too high for what you get in terms of quality and creativity. I got a $15 cocktail that was pretty bland, and a $35 duck breast with linguine that was unexciting. I don't mind spending $30 to $40 on an entree, but the food here is just not even remotely worth those prices. With so many more interesting restaurants at half the price, I don't know why this place gets any buzz.
Weren't seated until 30 mins after our reservation time. Spotty service with the server disappearing in the middle of ordering and bring food out at different points (appetizers came out individually over 30 mins).
Fantastic food and great environment but so many service issues that I don't think I'd come back.
The best food, every dish was better than the next! The only one that feel a little short was the halibut, it was dry but the lentils that accompanied it moistened the fish. Definite a party vibe, not so great for visiting and catching up with an old friend that I hadn't seen in years. We had a difficult time hearing each other. Luckily we were there for close to 4 hours and during that time it started to quiet down. The photo booth was a lot of fun! And the service was fantastic!!!
Found the Tables in the back really jammed in together, I was there for a business lunch and felt I was having lunch with the table next to me. Food portions were too small and I'm really not one to ever complain about food portion. Although the food was tasty, this is one of those restaurants you go to when you can't get in anywhere else.
I love the decor, the ambiance, and the drinks at Drake One Fifty. It's one of my favourite places. The Bartenders are friendly and quick with the drinks. Walk-ins are possible without delay on even weekend evenings as it is very spacious. The food isn't fine dining, but there are some gems in the menu. Drinks are on the pricier side around $15 or more, but are well crafted. I would recommend for a small number of friends, datenights, casual drinks, first dates, etc. but would caution against groups 6-7 or more. They do accommodate their guests, but not before giving them a hard time. Had they been more gracious, I would have enjoyed the experience more. The music was also extremely loud that evening and it was near impossible to carry a conversation, a departure from usual conversation-friendly volume at the venue.
Disappointed in the service which was really unprofessional. I will not be coming back to this restaurant. The experience was dining at a fast food restaurant, my beer glass was removed from the table (unfinished), food plates had to be held on to, server wanted to rush us out, really a bad experience.
Drake One Fifty has a great vibe and is an excellent spot for a pre-show dinner if you are going to the Royal Alex or the Hummingbird Centre. We have gone twice recently with a group of 8 or more and have always received our meals in time. There have been times when there are delays in getting additional drinks from the bar. I have not yet had the burger but my friends always rave about it. I love their halibut served on top of lentils (tons of flavour in the lentils) although there could be more of something served on the plate as it looks like not much on the plate for the cost e.g. some veg on the side. The seafood bucatini is very flavourful although a bit salty which could be the squid ink. Really enjoy this spot.
The space at Drake one fifty is amazing very fresh and fun. When we arrived the restaurant was just opening and within less than a half hour almost all the tables were taken. There is a live band for brunch which is very unusual and really adds to the great lively vibe of the restaurant. The menu is small but has everything you could need, they are also great at accommodating dietary restrictions. Great food, an amazing selection of tea, and great atmosphre.
We were five for lunch and everyone enjoyed the room and their meals. We were greeted by friendly staff and the service team was equally pleasant. The food was excellent , all from a diverse and interesting menu, it did however take some explaining. All in all it was a great experience.
