My fourth time there always enjoy the food and love the ambiance. Expect to return very soon. I did have an issue with the table initially one chair was beside a pole but they addressed and moved us right away! Good service!!

Great service! Unique menu. Love it that you can make a reservation online- I despise lineups. Great atmosphere. Blueberry scones yum! The menu is slightly more pricey than most brunch menus, but they are using quality ingredients.

Had the buckwheat pancakes and they did not disappoint. Lots of gluten free options but be sure to speak with your server to ensure all aspects of your order are suitable for gluten free diet. Great service and ambience. Would totally recommend for weekend brunch or lunch.

We actually had very poor service on Friday. Three different servers over our time there and none of them were particularly attentive.

My first time at the Drake Commissary. It was excellent. Service was prompt and attentive. Food was delicious. My guest enjoyed a glass of the microbrewery next door's amber lager. My other guest texted her daughter to let her know she had found a new neighbourhood hang out. If you're in the west end, its a great place to meet and eat.

There’s a good vibe at this restaurant though it’s a bit noisy. Food selection and taste was delicious. Service initially was good then it really slowed down. I’d try it again though.

We had a great time for brunch before going to the MOCA. The food was delicious as always and so were the drinks. Coffee was fresh, tea was hot. Will definitely be back but maybe not too soon as the prices are a little high but understandably so. The scones...oh goodness get the scones even as a take away snack for later on in the day.

We booked for the Turkey dinner. We were surprised to be offered brunch when we got there. The link in the email suggested the booking was for Turkey dinner. We mis-understood.

One of our party is gluten and dairy-free. They had a hard time finding something in the brunch menu to eat.

Good space and talent otherwise.

Such a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. A new tradition perhaps. Everything was so flavourful and perfectly cooked.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Went back for a second try at dinner as service last time on a Monday was blah. Much better this time. Food was delicious and plentiful. You must order the fries. Got a sourdough loaf to go. Excellent service this time.

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.
