Drake One Fifty Ratings and Reviews
Disappointing. We were there on a business lunch and from our perspective, the menu was extremely limited. Most of us had the chicken confit salad - lots of chicken, an egg but bland overall. No shortage of protein. Service okay but definitely not stellar. Our server was a bit curt when one of our party asked if they could add some chicken to a meatless salad - definitely no substitutions allowed. On the plus side, it has an outdoor patio and inside, it was quiet enough for a business discussion. Someone said that the restaurant had a good brunch... however, I don't think many of us will be giving the restaurant a second try.
Our experience fell a bit short in the food experience. It may have been what we chose to eat. We love beef tartare but at a Drake it was chopped in pieces that were far too big and lacked flavour. Do not order the lamb malfatti pasta. The lamb resembled and tasted like undercooked bacon. The fries, tuna crudo and Brussels sprouts were enjoyable.
I have been to this location in the past and the food has always been great. However, the service was off this time. Server seemed to not really be happy to serve us. One of my guests was constantly bumped as she was seated in the main passage for the wait staff. While the food was good slow service, a disinterested server (who simply forgot all the time), means this will not be on the top of my list as my go to restaurant for a little bit.
It was our last night in Toronto and we were looking for an upscale place for dinner. I’m not sure how we stumbled onto Drake 150, but it certainly seemed upscale. I was hoping for a good steak for our farewell dinner. For a Saturday night, it seemed a little quiet but then again, this is a financial district. I was a little surprised that I had only two steak choices: 12oz rib eye or 10oz flat iron. I asked for a NY cut but no dice – only two steak choices. So I got the rib eye and my wife got the trout. She liked the trout dish. For me, the rib eye tasted over aged but it was not particularly tender. Was it 12oz? That would be a bit of a stretch to me. The hasselback potatoes were not sliced deep enough and so it tasted just like a broiled potato. The mushrooms were too sour. So, we bailed after the main course. Still our bill came out to be $100 with no drinks, appetizer, or dessert.
I loved the ambience, the service was friendly and attentive. The menu is interesting, and I enjoyed the food (brussel sprouts to share, followed by confit chicken salad), but had the tell-tale signs of having eaten too much salt after. This happens rarely after eating restaurant food. Dry mouth, flushed face, thirst. It's unpleasant and spoils what would otherwise have been a very favourable impression.
Dial back the salt!
The food was great! It really was hard to make a selection as there were so many wonderful options. The only problem, we were seated near the kitchen - which was fine as my guests and I truly enjoy watching the team work. However, it was 45 minutes before our main meal arrived at the table. Truly not the fault of our server who was exceptional, courteous and friendly. We don't know what could have been the cause of the delay as my guests had the pasta options and I had a steak done rare - not long for preparation type meals. As I said the food was great; the beverages were creative and the wait staff were great as well.
I went to dinner at DrakeOneFifty with a medium-sized group (7 people) on a Saturday night for a friend's birthday. I loved the service and the waitress was very nice. One thing that I was VERY disappointed about was that they automatically put an 18% gratuity tip on my bill WITHOUT giving me a warning-- This prompted me to give another tip on top of current amount, and therefore doubling their tip. It was not until I asked the employee about the discrepancy, that they called it out and they refunded my money. It seemed very dishonest, which I really did not appreciate at all...
We ordered the Brussels sprots and beet salad to share as starters. Both came out dripping in vinegar, I love balsamic but this was even a bit much for me. We couldn't eat the Brussels Sprouts. I ordered the halibut which was almost comically small for an entree and relatively bland. My wife ordered the burger which was good.
Brunch menu was great, plenty of selection and they had an off-menu special too. We came here as part of a bachelorette party brunch on Saturday. Atmosphere was nice, it looked like groups of family and friends at the tables around us. the decor and the art installation outside the restaurant is really nice and kind of retro.
Food and service were outstanding. We got vouchers for their photo booth - it's a bit cramped and basically only fits two people at a time, but it was something fun to do at the end of our meal!
Would definitely come back to try the rest of their brunch items and regular menu.
Should up late for dinner due to car troubles (I live in Niagara) and we had 30 min to make it to our show at Roy Thompson Hall, we were in and out with enough time to spare with no compromise to the food. Thanks again to the staff, we will definitely be back.
Fantastic evening- we weren't sure- so pleasantly delighted.
Our server was not only knowledgeable, courteous, and efficient; but also completely charming and honestly made us feel our taste buds were the most Important thing in her world!
We love food- really love it.
And this place was a party for our senses:)
Even our booth was Cozy leather.
Love it when wine lists have a less well known wine- reasonably priced- to kind of lure people to try it:)
Food restaurant for a lively evening. Some family dining with teenagers. Mostly young professionals out on dates or with friends.
Food was unexpectedly good. I enjoyed the eggplant parmasean and the wine was delicious at a reasonable (restaurant) price.
Music was by live DJ, and a little loud if you are looking for an intimate conversation. I would also recommend a reservation (call even if it's the day you are looking to dine).
