“Excellent for breakfast!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Our family stayed at The Drake Hotel for six days, and we had the pleasure to start our day with breakfast here. We were given the opportunity to enjoy the ample breakfast buffet and have omelets fixed to our specification. My husband loved being able to have his coffee at his leisure while he waited on the rest of our family to join him for breakfast. The buffet had an array of dishes and they were all appetizing and presented nicely. The breakfast was included as part of the package we purchased for our stay. This was a great way to start our day before we toured Chicago.

“Great Service”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Love The Drake Hotel, the Drake Brothers restaurant was good, ordered off the menu on the first day and had the buffet on the second. Food was good, but not anything 'special' but the service was outstanding.

“Good for a hotel.”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

We made a reservation and went there for lunch with 4 friends. Six of us total. We thought it would be more of a "trendy" fun restaurant, but it turned out it was the hotel restaurant which essentially seemed to be for taking care of guests for breakfast/lunch. They seemed to be resetting things after the breakfast crowd. Had we known it was the hotel "restaurant" we would have eaten at one of the many Italian places in the neighborhood. Food was fine although we only got about 20 fries with the 2 of us that got sandwiches.

“Couldn't get it right, over and over and over........”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

I stopped for breakfast the day I checked out of the Drake and was completely disappointed and had to send stuff back 3 times for a simple breakfast. They brought coffee to my table quickly - it was cold. I ordered eggs, poached well - the server asked "does that mean completely cooked" and I said yes - the eggs were completely runny when they brought them. Asked for Rye toast - they brought white toast. You would think, having screwed up 50% of the meal, that they would have compensated on some level and perhaps discounted the check or something - NOT, not even an apology from the manager or supervisor.

Reviewed 17 July 2013 via mobile

Great breakfast place in the Drake Hotel. If you have a chance check out the beautiful lobby. We ordered off the menu. I would recommend that over the buffet. You will have more time to chat over a leisurely breakfast
