  • Hands down phenomenal service. Very happy with the prep work and the actual night experience. Many thanks are needed to be given to the sales team, servers / support staff , bar tenders, and chefs. This was an amazing night. We will be back!!!

    - Eric McKinnon

  • The day was spectacular to say the least. Your staff was so incredibly helpful from our arrival to bringing out the GIGANTIC Wonder Woman cake. I can't say enough about our server as well. I'm so sorry as I can't recall her name but she was absolutely brilliant! Please let her manager know what an asset she is at your venue.

    On a side note....your scones are out of this world! Everyone enjoyed the food immensely and loved the options on the menu that you provided.

    I would, without a doubt recommend the Drake Hotel to friends and family!

    Thanks for all your help in planning this special day for my Mom's 85th birthday!

  • From start to finish, the entire team at The Drake was amazing. Dave, who helped coordinate in early stages and secure the date for us, and Jessica especially, who ensured everything ran without a hitch. The entire service team was wonderful. Knowledgable, attentive, polite, approachable - only good things to say! I sincerely hope we can work together in the future. Thank you again!

    - Mira Zunder, Ariad Communications

  • Dave Elliott, Jessica and our whole team that night were all amazing. We loved every minute and a lot of our friends said they will want to come back for their own events. Thank you so very much!

    - Kelly Davis, Giants of Africa Screening Party

  • Just wanted to say thank you for another fantastic Drake event! The staff were wonderful, Laura was so attentive, and everything went off without a hitch. We really appreciate you guys, and I hope we can continue this awesome relationship we’ve been building over the years. It’s a pleasure to work with such competent, friendly, fun and organized people.

    - Ginny Collins, Manitoba Film + Music

  • Brian and I wanted to thank you and your staff for helping us host an amazing party. Our guests kept telling us how pleased they were with your staff, and how the staff was enjoying our music and having a good time. Everyone also LOVED the food. On the flip side your staff also observed and told us that they could tell everyone was happy and having a wonderful time. Owen was a great help and always kept us apprised of anything we needed to know. All in all we had no complaints and just wanted to thank you all again for everything you did to make our day truly special.

  • When I arrived, my servers were immediately attentive and friendly. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the bulk of my party arrived late and the staff still nailed the timing on the food and drink service all while being a delight to talk to. It was super important to me that all my guests eat well, especially those with complicated allergies. My coordinator helped me confirm that my menu would work, and my servers were extremely knowledgeable, patient, and made a point of seeking out particular guests with food they would be safe to eat. We didn't need any A/V help but I'm sure if we did it would have come in a flash. Everyone was friendly, fun, and helpful, and it went as smoothly as it did because of the Drake staff's overall excellence.

  • I wanted to say thank you so much for everything Friday night. It was so wonderful and you and the Drake staff really exceeded all my expectations. I've never been to a party with such great service. People kept commenting how impressed they were with how often the food came around and how whenever they needed anything, someone was there to help them. Thank you so so much. I've already been telling everyone that they should book events there and will continue to do so. Hope to work with you again!

    - Caroline

  • Flawlessly executed event. Space was beautiful in its simplicity, comfort, and style. Servers/bartenders were so on point I have not one word of critique besides excellence. Food was delicious as I've come to expect from all my Drake dining experiences. All around great birthday party for me and very special for my friends and family. Thank you to all involved.

    - Aaron Gonsenhauser

  • I realize I never officially thanked you for Drake's hospitality on my birthday last week. Truly one of the best night's of my life. It was perfect. Thank you.

    - Philip Tetro

  • From the beginning of my correspondence with Drake employees and event co-ordinators, all the way up to the event itself, I was blown away with their attentiveness and patience. This was the first event I've ever had for a birthday (or anything, for that matter), yet Laura Iacono made every step of the planning easy to co-ordinate and she accommodated the needs of every one of my guests. She was patient with me while I contacted guests and changed my mind. The night of the actual event, the server was phenomenal, attentive, and kind to me and my guests. I can't thank you enough for a spectacular birthday! Everything was beyond perfect!! THANK YOU!

    - Dagmara Mroczkowska

  • I just want to thank you and your wonderful staff for an amazing night yesterday. Our group had an absolute blast and the staff were professional and courteous. I look forward to having more corporate events with you guys (not just Christmas parties) in the future.

    - Vince Ho (St. Joseph Hospital’s Emergency Group)

  • I wanted to thank you so much for pulling together the perfect event for my husband's 50th birthday yesterday. Everything went really well, everyone had a great time and Rick was really happy.

    I've had a number of calls and emails this morning from attendees who raved about the food, location and service at The Drake and who were very impressed. The young woman behind the bar was amazing and gracious and your servers were wonderful. Thank you again for all of your help in making it perfect!

    I will definitely keep The Drake in mind for my next event (either personal or professional).

    - Samantha Jackson

  • The event on Thursday was great! Your staff was amazing as always and my guests were very impressed with the food and drink service. Sincere compliments to all involved and to yourself for the execution.

    It is rare for an event planner to be able to attend a function and not worry about anything! My praise goes to The Drake team for that.
