    Pros: great location and patio area. Right in the heart of the waterfront Decor and ambiance is also nice inside Cons: Server we had was not attentive (forgot to bring extra sauce for the steak). When other staff was asked for a drink, they never rang it up or told our server. Unfortunately the food wasn’t the best for the price you pay. Asked for a medium rare steak and came medium to well done. Server did offer to get a new one but at that time. I didn’t take up the offer as we were on a time crunch. Rest of the meals tasted just okay. Overall, we loved the atmosphere but will not be heading back anytime soon for the service and food quality

    Drift was an incredible experience - Justin was a great server, the host was so sweet and had the warmest personality, and the food was AMAZING. A must-have experience for anyone visiting Halifax / the east coast!

    First time at Drift. Sat outside as it was a beautiful evening with lots of folks around for the Halifax Jazz Festival. Lovely appetizer “gift” from the chef - smoked brisket over ricotta with cherry and mint - set the scene for a very tasty dining experience. The carrots starter is out of this world delicious with so many components and flavours I wanted to lick the bowl! Shrimp ceviche was a weekend special and was fresh and delicious. My boyfriend had the lamb as said it was the best he’s ever had. Our servers were a bit reserved and not overly friendly. We were not asked how our food was - thankfully it was fantastic.

    if looking for an upscale restaurant I would recommend it. Service was good there was just a long wait time from when we ordered to when we received the meal but other than that no complaints.

    Great menu with something for everyone. Try the Crispy Tourtière Roll and the Roast Chicken & Rappie Pie. Delicious!
