We went for lunch before going on to the Chelsea flower show. The table was lovely very comfortable, staff very friendly. The wine we ordered wasn’t chilled so we upgraded to champagne which was reasonably priced for a London restaurant.
It then went downhill badly. All 4 of us chose the special crab and avocado salad. At £12.95 There was nothing special about it. Where was the crab? I scraped it all together and there was a teaspoon full at most of tinned crab on a bed of slimey wilted lettuce and a few cubes of avocado. We did ask for more crab but initially were told well that is the portion but she went back to the kitchen and were brought a similar amount again. They did try to appease us with a brownie on the house and reduced the bill by £14.

Service was okay but the quality of food for the price left quite a lot to be desired.

This restaurant is well placed but can be a bit noisy. Went with the same group of people 2 years ago & feel the food has gone down a bit since. It does not cater too well for people with a gluten intolerance. There are some choices but not loads & it can be a bit restrictive

Lovely venue and so convenient for transport links. Had brunch here because it was dog friendly & close to the station. The food was great, all dietary requirements and picky preferences accommodated without fuss (so refreshing) and our waitress even brought water for the dog before we ordered our drinks : ) Will definitely be back and would highly recommend! Thanks

Unfortunately our whole experience was scarred by terrible customer service. Long waiting times to get a waiter, terrible attitude of waiters who didn’t seem to care about their job or the customers at all. There was one seemingly more superior waitress who apologised profusely and deducted items from the bill which was greatly appreciated. However overall it was a shame as the atmosphere and food were really good.

Food and the ambience of the place was lovely. Service was a bit lacking - not offered the chance to order more drinks and our orders came all mixed up! We had to move bacon from one plate to another.

Also - the postcode is wrong! Google Maps too us on a bit of a journey. It’s literally just behind Kings Cross.

Booked a table for 6 weeks in advance and 2 hours before the time received a voice mail saying they didn’t have space. When I called they offered no real apology and the explanation was that open table had confirmed the booking without telling them. No way of knowing if that is the case or not.
I explained that people were travelling from out of town and this left me no time to find somewhere else, eventually got a call back to say they had sorted a table. Not sure why that couldn’t have been done before, especially when there were plenty of empty tables in the downstairs area when we were there.
Drinks took a long time to arrive, at one point one drinks order was taken whilst three others on the table were ignored. Dirty cups, wrong drinks brought to the table and staff seemed to be really stretched.
The only saving grace was that the food was good. It’s a shame, I have been here before and it was great but this booking really didn’t go well.

Working in Kings Cross, Drake & Morgan is one of my top choices both for business lunch and after work drinks!

The ambience is great, the service is always friendly and the prices are really decent for the area! The food is not bad but there's definitely room for improvement...it's pretty good though and the wine last is quite great!

Service was slow, we had to keep looking for someone to order wine, get water, order food etc. Our waitress was polite but not very helpful. We ordered a bottle of wine, she brought another bottle to the table and started opening it when one of us realised it wasn’t what we ordered - she replied saying “yes we ran out I brought you another bottle - it’s cheaper” - didn’t even tell us if we hadn’t noticed and then when we ordered another bottle didn’t get us to taste it - just filled all the glasses. They had also run out of dessert wine we ordered (they only have one), one of the dishes we ordered and ketchup!!!
Food was very average.
Ambiance is very loud - nice place for a drink but avoid dinning.

Buzzing Friday night made for a good catch up. Plenty of tables for sit down dining and oceans of tables for "Just Drinks". Not too far from Kings Cross Station.
Food quality was good, although the chicken burger tasted like it had been sitting for a while...might have been the busy service.
Still a brilliant place and look forward to going back.

A bit loud for a nine year old's birthday, but very good childrens options.
The burgers are amazing, vegetarian a little disappointing.
The Romanian Pinot Noir did not quite deliver (what was I expecting).

We had the set menu of £19.95 for a steak, half a lobster and chips with a glass of prosecco each which was a value for money and had such a lovely time.
