    It was our 51st anniversary. It went unnoticed even though it was marked on Open Table. We were revisiting the Drake because we spent many dates in the late 60s and early 70s in the Lodge. Outside dining was lovely. We were one of three tables. Waitress was not attentive. Fortunately the food was delicious. This night didn't meet the memories we had of the Drake.

    Be here before and it’s usually awesome. This time, my wife’s order was incorrect. We sent it back and it still came back wrong. At that point she made due but it put a damper on what was supposed to be a belated anniversary dinner. Otherwise, the patio was great.

    I visited the Colonial Room with 3 other people. 3 of the 4 of us were not happy at all with the meal. I didn't finish mine baked Halibut with stir fry veggies and rice. Veggies were greasy, rice was mushy. Fish did not taste good at all. I left the majority of it on the plate and only ate what I did because I was so hungry. Salmon customer was not satisfied either stating, "It's not good." Chicken customer said, "no flavor." Hamburger was the only person satisfied. The service was very slow. Yes-understaffed like so many others. Didn't hold this against the waiter in any way. Took a long time to get drinks from the bar and the same with food to table. I will not dine here again. The charcuterie boards going to other tables looked good. It's probably an ok place for a drink and board, nice atmosphere, but certainly not for a meal.

    We went for my sons birthday! Because of rain we couldn’t sit out on the terrace which I’m sure would have been much better. We were too close to the cafe and it was noisy. The room we sat in was the Ballroom and it was small and the music was loud. The singer was excellent though and the food was good. David our server was very good.

    Service was great. A little disappointed I put a note in that it was for birthday celebration and nothing happened I even left a message at restaurant about birthday too. Other than that it was very noisy the downtown location wasn’t that loud, and the atmosphere was nicer with decor but food and service was great.

    Our waiter was great, but the overall experience was not. One of our salads came out incorrectly several times. The last two times I have been here, food has come out incorrectly multiple times. On top of that the food hasn't tasted that great and especially not for the price. I also ordered a cosmopolitan that tasted like water. They have moved the live music behind the patio now as well. You can hardly see the person singing, let alone hear them. It somewhat ruins the point of live music. I don't know that we will continue coming here anymore.

    We went to celebrate my 19 year old twins birthday and Fathers Day. The great service started with the Valet Parking. The staff at check in was friendly, professional and courteous. They took our cake and put it in the freezer while we had our dinner. We ate dinner outside under a canopy and it was beautiful. The view of the waterfall and the gazebo was definitely picture worthy. Our 3 servers were INCREDIBLE. They were fun, friendly and happy. They showed that they loved their jobs. The servers were very attentive to our needs. Our party of 8 was well taken care of. They checked in with us periodically to ask if we needed anything. Our used plates were taken away quickly when we finished. They brought out cake out, we sang Happy Birthday & took it back to cut it up. They even remembered that I forgot the candles and made sure to put some on the cake. It is really nice to see 3 young men take pride in their jobs. The suggestions that they made about the best way to have our meals regarding the Chef’s advice was spot on. The food was DELICIOUS. My family enjoyed the food and everyone was satisfied. The Cummins family will definitely be returning to The Colonial Room at The Drake. These 3 young men need to be celebrated for the OUTSTANDING job that they did especially because they had another large family party to take care of as well. You can never go wrong with great service and great food. I will let others know about The Colonial Room at The Drake. From a one to ten this was a 15.

    The service was terrible from the rude host at the front of the building that didn’t look up to answer a question to the unprofessional hostess in the restaurant to the server. The only good service we received was from the valet men who opened the door for us they were kind everyone else was unprofessional and I’ve had better and more professional service in a fast food restaurant

    $80 for Mother’s Day brunch and it left ALOT to be desired. For the suburbs this is on the higher end, and disappointing is just altogether unfortunate. Currently, there are not a lot of brunch options in the western suburbs so I opted for this place. The usual Sunday brunch is $60, for reference. We arrived at 1pm, halfway through the brunch service. Most of the food from the buffet was either lukewarm, dry, tasteless, or in some cases all of the above. The carving station prime rib and picana was over cooked. I had to ask our waitstaff what was different from the Mother’s Day brunch and we were informed; quesadilla bar(the chicken selection was as dry eating sawdust), a few extra salads, and bananas foster, that was it. Her exact response was, “not much different.”We were disappointed with the overall experience. I was expecting the service to be A-game and that wasn’t case. Getting coffee and champagne refilled took several asks, our initial silverware had pieces missing, and finished plates took a while for removal. I’m a loyal and long-time bonvoy client, and even had my wedding at one of their hotels in downtown Chicago. I’ve always had great experience whether it was our wedding, dining , or a stay, until this time. I recommend going elsewhere for Sunday brunch I’m general. It really pains me to say and write this review.

    The quantity, selection, and quality of food is amazing. Unlike other buffets, the food is not sitting in a warmer or under a light for an extended period. The turnover is so high, food items are replaced and replenished very frequently. Service is excellent, as several wait staff members work the areas together, so they come by you table every few minutes offering more champagne, juice, water, or coffee. They remove your used plates quickly. The holiday buffets are very popular, and you need to make your reservation several weeks in advance, in order to get a time slot you desire. By far, there is no better buffet anywhere.

    Great Mother's Day Brunch. Had great variety with something for everyone, breakfast and lunch items including great prime rib and pork sirloin. Not only had boiled shrimp but also oysters on the half shell. Omelet station, fresh waffles with a choice of strawberries, peaches or blueberries with whip cream and Bananas Foster with ice cream were also available. Can't beat the options.

My mimosa was constantly topped off and our plates were cleared immediately. The variety and quality of food was above and beyond. We will be back to enjoy this for the regular Sunday brunch!! Amazing!
