“Good people, GREAT food”
Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

I know its called Dr!nk, but I would go back for the food. I was out w/ some friends on valentines night and settled on drink due to location and non-crowd. The patrons were a good mix and felt right. There's an open kitchen, and the staff was quite pleasant and knew the menu well.
Back to the food. I had the Spaghetti and Lamb Meatballs in Mint Marinara Sauce with shaved Parmesan and Goat Cheese. And it was the best I have had! Flavourful w/ just the right amount heat to balance the mint. Absolutely would return, just for that dish...and maybe I'll try some drinks too.

“Great "standard" fare with Gluten Free Options!”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

I'm not a big wine drinker, so I can't speak of the selection. However, I can speak of the food. IT'S AMAZING.

There's a small kitchen, where you can see the cooks working hard and preparing everything fresh to order. Although there isn't much in terms of local Trinidadian cuisine, the food that is done is incredibly well done. Only fresh ingredients go into their salads, sandwiches and pizzas.

I had a Cobb Salad which was plentiful and a steak sandwich. Went back the next night because it was so good and had their gluten-free pizza, which really was one of the best I've ever had. Prices are expensive by Trinidadian standards, but on par with American prices when you do the conversion. Honestly though, you will never feel ripped off given the high quality.

The staff/service are extremely warm and friendly. The clientele is definitely upscale and well dressed and the party will spill outside and into the streets too.

Another plus: good wifi!

“Nice for a small space”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

Its a very artistic space. For a small space, it is well used. The decor is fab. Reminds me of a small but high end London pub. Service is good and variety of wines are available.

“Lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

Jus right for a small lime, a quick bit or a fab DR!NK. When I went there already limited menu was reduced to approximately 10 items but this did not dampen my sprits. The food was great. The staff was slow but they made u feel welcomed. I would pay them a next visit to see if things have been improved. U never know if they were jus having a bad night.
