    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.

    My wife and I dined at several of the top rated and highly recommended restaurants in Halifax during our 8 day stay in the city. The high level of dining and great food scene exceeded our expectations. Drift seemed to be a sleeper that in our opinion is the number one place to dine in the city. Drift was the only restaurant we visited twice. Highly recommend Drift!
