Let’s be real here. I only wanted to go here because it was “Drake’s Restaurant” or affiliated with him one way or another. Luckily, I was able to convince M to come with me on a Tuesday
Varity – 9/10 – the menu is really random in my opinion. You can have pasta, lots of appetizers, lots of finger food choices. Can’t remember what else, but it’s a very loung-ie feeling atmosphere; thus, the selection available was catered towards that.
Service – 10/10 – Of course, the staff was trained very well. We were greeted as soon as we walked through the door. They were quick to take our order and was quick with the food.
Taste – 9.5/10 – We had the Pappardelle pasta, Lee’s Cheese Burger Spring Roll, and the Tuna Tartare. I personally like Cactus Clubs’ Tuna Tartare better. The pasta was delicious – cooked to the perfection of ‘al dente’. The truffle oil and mushrooms was delicious! At first I was a bit skeptical about the Cheese Burger Spring Roll. Sounds really weird doesn’t it? Well, It came as a spring roll with a lettuce underneath the roll. Inside was the meat and cheese. On top of the spring roll, they doused it in some sort of chipotle sauce. This was spicy for me (shocker – not) so it took some time for me to finish it. Regardless it was delicious.
Atmosphere – 9.5/10 – A little too dim for my liking but I guess that’s the feel/vibe they were going for. Definitely love the waves neon lights at the entrance of the bathroom downstairs. I also think they purposely make it dark af so that if there were ‘celebrities’, you couldn’t really see/be 100%. That was me the whole time. “Omg is that ____” “nah can’t be” “actually it’s too dark I can’t even see properly”.
Reasonably Priced: – 8/10 – it wasn’t as experience as I thought it would be. When you’re sharing with others, I can definitely justify the price since you get to try many things. If you weren’t sharing then I don’t think you can fully experience the place without breaking into your wallet a bit.
Overall, I would definitely come here again but on a thurs-sat (because apparently that’s when it’s really bumping and more chances of bumping into celebs (cough drake cough).
