Drake One Fifty Ratings and Reviews
The space at Drake one fifty is amazing ...
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.

Always good music and great menu. The service could be better, staff can be standoffish and slow at bringing orders. Overall, good place for happy hour drinks in the financial district. the vibe beats the other typical business-type places in the area.

Service was amazing from when you first entered to all the amazing staff along the way! The food was amazing! Charcuterie board was so good as well as oysters! The buger was one of the best burgers I ever ate! Highly recommend!

I understand we were there on New Years Day @ 630pm, but it was so disappointing. After ordering drinks, we started to go through the menu, and were told one special was now gone. Then 5 minutes later our server returned to add that two more entrees off the main meat menu were gone, and the flatbread menu (which is about 30% of the menu) couldn't be served because she thought they were out of dough.
The server was pleasant and tried hard, but she was swimming up stream with only a less than acceptable portion of the menu available.
Come on Drake....you are better than this!

My daughter & I enjoyed the food & service. I had the venison & enjoyed but was salty. I don't use a lot of salt. The server was awesome. We enjoyed the crispy cauliflower as recommended. Overall we enjoyed and would go back!

DJ was fantastic!! Only complaint was a group of kids near us when we arrived who were being pretty wild and spraying water (what can you do I guess).
Service was great, manager was so chatty and friendly, and as always the food and cocktails were delicious.

Im always underwhelmed by service here. It's not bad but it feels like we're a slight annoyance to the server's. Maybe it's us but I've not felt that in other places. I recognize it's popular and always get the feeling that we should be more grateful for being there than vice versa.

Overall, the food was good considering it was Christmas Eve and there were hardly any patrons, cooks and servers. The only remark is that when the menu states Lamb and how it's prepared, one assumes that it is medallions. It's in fact lamb stomach and it's completely fatty with hardly any meat to chew on. I spoke up to our server about the situation and confusion by the menu. I suggested that management changes this for clarity and/or servers inform the patrons before ordering. The server was astute in examining the lamb and did his job by removing the lamb from the final bill. Good service.

Was at Drake 150 for a Holiday Celebration lunch with a client. The place was packed and very loud - made it a bit difficult for the 6 of us to talk amongst ourselves in a booth. The space itself is quite nice. Service is pretty attentive and professional . The food is well prepared and pretty good value for money. I would recommend it.

Good downtown restaurant . I think a bit overrated by many Torontonians as a neat go to place, but like i said likely no different than other restaurants in the area so likely a little overrated by Torontonians. Food was good, service was good.

We had the crab toast, delicious. French onion soup was standard but should have come out hotter, especially since the restaurant was maybe 20% full and we were only the second table into dinner service. My husband raved about the buttery pickerel and I had one of the gnocchi and it was heavenly. I'd come back if I could eat a plate of those alone. I had the burger, it arrived with an un-melted piece of cheese, and again, if the kitchen isn't busy and if the burger itself is not hot enough to melt the cheese as the burger sits on the table, then that it my mind tells me the kitchen is wildly inconsistent. The burger itself was delicious, but the fries/salad as a side were abysmal. The fries came out like cardboard and at best lukewarm and if the salad was dressed, I couldn't tell. Perfunctory. No ones fry game should be so bad when you're sending out the best gnocchi in the city. It's a great room, warm and very comfortable. It was a good meal, but not a great meal.

The food, the live music, everything was fantastic until the very end. The server who was very nice and friendly turned really cold and stone faced upon requesting multiple bills, even though Drake 150 has a policy for producing separate bills for groups up to 7 people. He barely said thank you. And on top of that, he hovered above as people were trying to enter in the payment info. Rather unprofessional. It for sure ruined a good experience.

Food is good, but the menu is a bit small, they could do with extending that a bit. Servers were great but we seemed to have 4 different ones so we ended up waiting a long time for orders to be taken or the bill to arrive, possibly because each person thought the other was on it. Only really criticism is the music volume. I'm all for a bit of atmosphere, but I like to be able to actually have a conversation with my friends.

The Drake 150 never fails to deliver. Pairing unique flavours with interesting foods, with exceptional execution. I go to the Drake often for business, and this time I brought my family, to illustrate why it's one of my favorite places in the core... again, the cooks and service at Drake 150 didn't miss the mark. There was nothing we ordered, that didn't elicit an appreciable groan. Just a wee warning, the food is so good, you'll NEED to share it, you'll WANT to... perfect setting for good friends.
Go, enjoy, spend your money (it's not cheap), but it's worth it.

I have previously enjoyed meals at the Drake 150 and the Drake Wellington, which is why I suggested to friends from out of town that we meet there for dinner. When I arrived, I learned that the restaurant was hosting a special, invitation-only promotional event (a Perrier launch). The associated music was loud, and the bar area was packed (on a Tuesday evening). It was almost impossible for our table of 3, seated near to the bar, to speak or be heard. I would have appreciated knowing in advance that the restaurant would be hosting a special event as I would have made alternate plans. Note that there would have been no reprieve had we been seated elsewhere in the restaurant. The music was that loud. I was embarrassed to have been responsible for suggesting this restaurant.
