It was ok. Service left a little to be desired, brunch wasn’t anything special.
Excellent selection and service! My family loved this restaurant
Driftwood is in a great location, but a little informal for a mothers day treat. It was also probably the loudest restaurant I've been to in a long while.
They were too busy for brunch and couldn't keep up with the buffet. It was too expensive for what they had out but our server was phenomenal. Very friendly.
We had reservations and we still had to wait. They forgot about us and we’re giving walk-ins tables. Prime rib was over cooked and dry, and had to ask a waitress for water after we were seated.
Unfortunately we spent Mother’s Day here for brunch buffet and were underwhelmed. Food was mediocre, service was ok. No one wished us happy mother’s day and for $10 more per person, we could have gone elsewhere and had a much better meal. Lack of vegetarian options and only 2-3 desserts. Felt rushed by waitress dropping check way before appropriate.
Atmosphere and location are great. We had the fried chicken and it was amazing!!
Made reservations from NJ to have graduation dinner when we drove down. Didn't know what to expect. The french themed architecture was a fun surprise. The food was excellent. Drinks were too. Waitress was great. All her recommendations were home runs. I would definitely return next time I am in Raleigh.
Great food and service!
Had a very enjoyable evening with my book club. Everything was perfect!
Fabulous food! Our server, Diane, was knowledgeable about the menu and gave us great suggestions. We all thought we had the best thing on the menu. From the appetizers and dinner everything was perfect! What a great night!
The lamb burger was maybe the best burger I’ve ever had! Great weekend date night spot
Great food and great service!
What a terrible Easter brunch! First they told me I’d have to wait an hour beyond my reservation time to get an actual table. Then the buffet was a disaster - like a cyclone had hit. Finally by the time we were ready for dessert they’d run out. Obviously not capable of managing a full restaurants and reservations.
1. Why is it when u make a reservation, it's more like a call ahead? Still had to wait when we arrived.
2. The host said he would text me when the table was ready, but I finally had to check in with him again to be seated.
3. The Easter buffet was average and not that many selections.
4. Extremely noisy.
Great place for Sunday brunch with the family. Has a lot of lunch and breakfast options. I recommend the French toast!
Went for Easter brunch. Had reservations. Ended up waiting over 30 minutes beyond my reservation. Poor management for a holiday
The Bruch was good. I would like to suggest having an omelette station and a waffle station.
I had heard great things about this restaurant and thought Easter brunch would be a great time to try it, especially since it kept popping up as a great place in Raleigh for brunch. Not so much. Food was not good at all. Service was very good and friendly. Maybe better for dinner? I dunno. Won't be rushing back. Disappointing to all in our party.
We typically go here for brunch every few months and really enjoy it. We went for Easter brunch and the food was just the same as always, nothing much more than usual but they charged $30 a person. We didn’t feel that it was worth the extra $15 a person for the few extra things offered above their normal brunch. You are squeezed in very close to people and if they are loud (as our neighbors were!) you can barely hear your own convo. Would have liked it to have been a bit more special for Easter. Will definitely not be back for a holiday but most likely will for Norma brunch
The brunch was very good. The only thing I would change would be the price for kids. 10 and under for $14 is a lot, I would think if the kid is 3 and younger to do a modified price, like $10 instead.
I will be back!
Great food. Large portion sizes. Really enjoyed the honey chicken and especially he chocolate bourbon pecan pie. Will definitely go back again.
It was excellent
It was good atmosphere, service was good but all the food I received just seemed average. I was really looking forward to the wedge salad however the dressing didn’t really compliment it with the blue cheese pieces. Also when I think of wedge salad I think iceberg lettuce cut in a wedge. It was more like spinach salad. I got shrimp with it and the shrimp had no flavor just grilled it seemed. A little disappointed after hearing such good things. Service was great though.
The buffet included breakfast and lunch items and overall everything was good. The fried chicken was my favorite.
Amazing location to celebrate two birthdays. The food was excellent, our server was attentive as we needed, and the price for brunch was perfect.
It was my wife’s birthday and we wanted to try a new place. All of the food we ordered always really delicious. The service was good, pretty standard good service, nothing out of the ordinary. I would definitely go back to try another menu item, I tried a few dishes around the table and was really impressed by the flavor of each dish.
Loved everything about this restaurant! The ambiance is adorable, the waiter was INCREDIBLE- he’s the only original waiter still on staff - he pointed us in the right direction on every single course!! The food was SOOOO good. Highly recommend the short ribs entree and the Brussels Sprouts appetizer. The peanut pie was to die for! We ordered cocktails, appetizer, 2entrees, dessert and coffee. With tip it was under $100. Great prices!!
Friend and I met up for dinner to catch up. Food was great staff was very friendly. Overall great experience. Would definitely go back
We love the menu choices, the food and the ambiance...just the right amount of funk. our server was wonderful and we loved our meals. Yes, it's on the loud side in Driftwood, but we know that when we choose to go there..
The buffet is very average, beef brisket is blend and tough
VERY loud. Extremely difficult to have a quiet conversation. Food was good, but not much variety for a brunch buffet.
Great food, awesome waitress! Fair prices for a great experience!
Reservation was on time, service was great. Smoker platter was generous and delicious. Looking forward to our next visit
I love the concept of $2 mimosas for brunch and the buffet on Sunday. I found the selections to be variable, however, I think it would be nice if they offered a few things you could personally order from the menu. Overall, I enjoyed the experience and will definitely be back!
delish! server was a bit overwhelmed but handled it! pimento cheese is great...and those brussels sprouts are AMAZING
The pimento cheese appetizer was excellent!
Saw them on open table. Looked at the menu and it sounded good so we booked. Showed up at restaurant and was told they were only serving sunday buffet, not off menu. THIS WAS NOT MENTIONED on their Listing ! (False Advertising?) Very DISAPPOINTING. To make matters worse, the waitress was very slow with drinks, the buffet was very limited and the food was AWFUL. Will never go back.
Hi Gastronome, we have it listed on our website (click the menu tab and there is a brunch heading) as Sunday's are a brunch buffet. Please try us again for a regular menu day.
We went for the brisket and it didn’t have any flavor
Hi David, sorry the brisket did not live up to expectations. I wish we could have turned your experience around with a different dish on Friday. Hope you'll give us another shot!
Driftwood always has amazing food and excellent, friendly service! Great place for a date, catching up or group event!
