Nice atmosphere, but virtually non-existent dairy-free or meat-free menu items. They even serve their veggie burger, inexplicably on a "milk bun", with no option to substitute. The items we did order were uninspired and not worth the pricing. Would not recommend.More

I had a 17 dollar salad. It sounded good with apples,grapes and pecans but it was ridiculously small. Maybe 2 grapes cut in half, a few dime thin apple slices, a couple pecans on iceberg lettuce. I was so disappointed when I saw it. What...a rip off. Of course, the view is beautiful and the service was pleasant but I won't be going back to eat there.More

This is an absolutely beautiful place to enjoy a dinner with friends. We went out tonight to celebrate three birthdays within our friends group. Our server Kirsten was fantastic. She was so attentive, fun, and she recommended the burger, which four of us enjoyed. As...if that wasn’t enough, she gave me a free dessert and took pictures of me and my friends enjoying our birthdays. I would highly recommend the Drake for a nice dinner out. We will be back!More

Such an amazing experience! Professional service by Rachel and she was fantastic. Came here for lunch and we ate on the patio. You can taste the love the chefs take in each bite. Each dish is seasonally prepared for guests enjoyment. The patio is beautiful...and the surrounding areas. I would come here again.More

I’m not sure how to express what I’m feeling after dinner this evening. Heart of Palm ceviche was mushy slices of hearts of palm with diced onions and tasteless tomatoes (almost impossible this time of year) and a few micro greens. oh.. and soggy tortilla...chips on the side. Zero acid. Zero… anything. Caesar salad had no garlic, no anchovy, no pepper… no flavour. The pickerel main we shared was bitter and inedible, surrounded by overly greasy veg and a congealed sauce. We left our main dish uneaten and asked for our bill. How did no one ask if everything was ok? Who is ok with a meal like this for $120? I’m thinking that if anyone cared, the only feeling they should have is shame.More

The website is deceptive. My wife and I made a reservation for MEMPHIS TUESDAYS. On the website it make no mention of it being first come first served. The screen shows two options, you can select Details or BOOK NOW. I selected the DETAILS option....It gave further information but still no mention of the fact that you cannot book a table. I selected the BOOK NOW option and we arrived on time. We were turned away from the venue as all the tables were taken in the room where the performers were.More
