The Art Deco vibes make this place a fun stop when in Toronto. It’s location is great with tons of parking, parks, and shopping nearby. The food is slightly pricier but the value is there. It’s a very loud, vibrant, and crowded place so not...More

Cramped quarters, very overpriced, and disappointing. We ordered the blueberry scones and they turned out to be an abomination: about 4 one-inch squares of a dry, tasteless, blue coloured biscuit-like substance. The traditional cream and jam they were served with seemed to be whipped, not...More

The Drake is an exceptionally average restaurant. Our table ordered the burger, which was good, although the fries were cold, and the lamb pasta was weird (VERY gamey), and not very pleasant. The best part of the meal was an excellent bread that came to...More

Yes it is easy if you are lucky enough to find a spot. There is plenty of parking all around but not indoor if that is your preference. I prefer to park closer myself but best of luck. Cheers
