    You definitely don’t get what you pay for. Appetizers were very small. Meet dishes were poorly cooked for the price. Pork and lamb were both dry. Drinks were fine, but wine availability was not. There are much better choices around Halifax.

    Most importantly, our server Nathan was exceptional. Courteous, knowledgeable, and attentive. Everything you want in a server. Ordered the $49 steak frites medium rate and the steak came medium well. Told Nathan and he did get defensive just quickly said he would get me a new one. Brought the new steak out, and told us it was going to comped (it was). Unfortunately the second steak was still overdone and frankly favorless. My wife ordered the pork belly and scallops. Unfortunately this was also very overdone. The pork belly was hard and chewy and also lacking flavour. We didn't bring up the second steak or the pork belly to our server. We felt awkward enough having to send back the first steak. The cocktails were great, the venue is great, and the server was great but the food was very disappointing. At this point, we aren't planning to dine at Drift again as we've had similar experiences in the past. To ask the dollar amounts for main courses that they are they MUST do better with delivering. The meal we make at home with Hello Fresh are far superior and it just shouldn't be that way.

    Food was fantastic! Service was excellent. Food & Drink Presentation were superb. We found the seating a bit close too close to others. Having that room would be idea to have private conversations. Overall, would definitely recommend. For Dinner for 2 - would spend over $200.

    Beautiful restaurant with very gracious staff (especially for a large party that squeezed an extra person into our party). Food was excellent-delicious and beautifully presented.
