If you are going for brunch & want a hip atmosphere and great tasting food, this is the place. My only issue is that we spend $90 on 2 people for brunch. $5 cup of tea is a bit ridiculous & although the food is delicious, the portions don't warrant the price. $17 for a smoked salmon bagel, does not even come with a side salad or anything? nice for a treat, maybe 1 x a year.
Food is creative and good. It is expensive for what you get though so I’m not sure the value is there. You are definitely paying for The Drake brand. That said, the experience as a whole is very good. The ambiance is unique as is the location. You definitely feel like you’ve done something different and fun.
First time here and really enjoyed it. The menu was very creative and tasty! Service was friendly and attentive and the design/decor was beautiful. Looking forward to coming back in the near future with my team.
Great for hosting a business lunch!
Food was exceptional! So fresh and delicious!
not if they wanted to have conversation. it is too loud
Great servers, great food. awesome evening. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
All good- was a surprised they served a drink w a plastic straw. Should be an option- lose single use plastic.
Always a great meal - absolutely love Sunday brunch. Great new brunch menu.
Unfortunately we had two different servers over the course of our meal and in the exchange our mains were forgotten. After asking about our order the servers explained what happened but there was no offer of a discount/dessert etc. to try to compensate for the forgotten meals that would never have arrived if we hadn’t asked about them!
Great food, good recommendations from the server. Only thing preventing a full 5* was the time it took to get our bill. At least 20 minutes. When you’re done, you’re done ya know?
I had high hopes. Service was not good...had to ask a few different servers to send our server over to take our drink order. Our server also didn't check in with us once the whole time we were there. It wasn't even busy, so I'm not sure why the service was poor. Too bad because the food was pretty good. Won't be back.
Great food, atmosphere and live music!
I enjoyed the gelato we had for dessert so much, we bought some to go.
Great place for any occasion. Just might become my go to
Sat on the patio, so missed the funky ambience this place is known for. Summer days are numbered, so we wanted to be outside.
Very gracious accommodation for Celiac.
Delicious food and original menu options.
Honestly, great dinner out for 6 besties, love the food, vibe, good service but not intrusive, mmm the eggplant - and how do you get the rapini like that? Moans over the rhubarb sorbet..mmmmm! Shared a pitcher each of red and white sangria - yum! All in all a positive, delicious and affordable dinner out - looking forward to going back!
Really nice experience. Staff was friendly and attentive.
Great! Except for the sound check from the venue next door everything was amazing.
Great food, family-friendly environment. The pastries looked amazing but was too full to try one!
Manager adamant about not adding another table so we had a more civilized dining experience which was a shame since there was room to do so and the dining room wasn’t packed. The hash did not excite me even though it’s the most popular dish. Too many competing flavors. The tequila Cesar was tasty.
Kira, our server was a delight, the drinks were fresh, and the food was delicious. The music was a little loud but maybe I'm getting old? A great night.
Great food. Interesting location
2 of us visited for brunch on a Saturday morning @ 10:30 am. Not overly busy that hour, but definitely almost full a couple hours later. Love the ambiance and decor of the place, and I really enjoyed my food. The menu contains quite a variety of choices, with a large selection of coffees, teas, and alcoholic beverages. I ordered a cappuccino, then the ham plate. (Swap out the honey mustard for the grainy beer one, it tastes better with the ham, imo!) Husband had pancakes with a side of eggs. Everything cooked to perfection. The side of fruit contained watermelon, cantaloupe, and blueberries, and incredibly fresh and beautifully presented. Service was pretty fast, and efficient.
They make everything in house, including things like mustard, charcuterie, jam, etc. They sell their products as well. Of course, I bought the mustard! The restaurant has a space for people to use laptops, with power plugs, and operates a bakery onsite as well. We even had a tour of the kitchen, and like the restaurant itself, it's clean, organized and very professional.
Will definitely return!
My son loves it here. Food is fresh and delicious! The service always amazing!
The location is awesome, and the building is beautifully decorated.
Wednesdays is 50% off wines, with a great selection
Their apps (fries w. curry aioli) are good
The food is pretty disappointing. Very overpriced for the quality. The pasta w. peas and mushrooms were literally tasteless. Not worth going to for dinner, maybe small bites and drinks, but that's about it.
One of my favorite places for any time of day - first time doing brunch and we loved it!
Brunch on a lazy Saturday morning...
Food wasn't great, and it was expensive. Overcooked and greasy beans. Charged for everything - even bread at the table. Service was great, room ambiance okay but loud. Might try it for brunch, but wouldn't go back for dinner.
I really like the atmosphere but the food was disappointing. We had the brisket and calamari but it was ok not great. The sides were good but starters were ok.
Having been to the other Drake establishments and loving them, Commissary was no different in a more casual fabulous. Our server was energetic and attentive and the service was overall by all staff attending our table was appreciated. We shared a smoked eggplant app and did the family style brisket with blistered beans and mushrooms and wow what flavour. We ended the night with a light rhubard dessert and it packed a punch. The tables are relatively close together & there was a group beside us that got loud towards the end of our seating, however those things you can't always control. Upon leaving, it was fun to peruse the little shop of take away goods. We bought a few things to try at home and look forward to returning.
The food that we ordered for brunch was a bit too salty for our taste. Had pretzel bagels and avocado tartine (too much lemon juice in the avocado paste) but apart from that the ambiance service was excellent
- Great ambiance: big and airy. Lots of cool, interesting decor. We saw tons of families with young children too, making it v family-friendly.
- Great service: friendly, fast, and responsive, but not smothering.
- Great food: Delicious. So tasty, and they give you decent value for your food. I'll say that if you're into cooking, you could probably make a lot of this stuff at home, but it's rill tasty and nice to eat out :)
- A little pricey for what it is, but all the food is solid, so worth the cost if you're only going out once in a while. If all you want are the baked goods, there's a small express bar right at the entrance that will fix you up nicely!
Great brunch experience! Annie, our server, was awesome.
We’ll definitely be back.
Delicious! Brisket, sides, white sangria, all fantastic!!
A kind of 'gourmet comfort food' served efficiently by smart urbanites. Have been twice and will definitely go again.
Great place to grab a bite. And we were happy to sit outside on the patio.
My wife’s fish was delicious as was rye bread and cultured butter. I ordered brisket which rarely do. I was
surprised to find it was like a deli corned beef but in steak thickness. Maybe description could have indicated same. If I ‘d known, I would have ordered differently . Found the staff pleasant
Not a great seat and a bit noisy
Ordered same dish as usual, but less in the plate, felt dry, way fewer meat. Disappointed.
Good was overpriced and subpar. We actually had to send our main dish back because it was so off. The mix of flavors and spices did not go together and tasted awful. It also did not match the discription on the menu.
