    I found this place on TikTok some time last year, and am in town for my birthday. I came here specifically for their octopus punch bowl that is advertised all over their socials, I was soooo excited to get it. So of course I was SUPER bummed to find out they’re not offering it anymore, even though it’s all over the recent socials. The ambiance and atmosphere is definitely cool and they do offer little fire shows. My service was very very slow and the food was subpar. My painkiller was tasty though!

    Amazing Tiki Bar restaurant. The drinks were cool and fun and tasty. The service was top notch and the ambiance was outstanding. The appetizers were great and the chef even made flank steak palatable. The waitress made our anniversary very special.

    Chicken and beef were served raw. The "Zombie" drink seemed to be only liquor and i was unable to drink it. The staff was incredibly rude and condescending. I will never return. The portions were extremely small and unseasoned.

    We had a 9pm reservation on a Friday night. The hostess that greeted us was not very welcoming and since we were 10 minutes early, asked us to stand outside in the rain till it was “our time” and she would come get us. She didn’t return, and at 9:15 we asked again and a different hostess was actually very nice and took us to our table. Our server didn’t say hello, barely spoke and seemed annoyed at us the whole time. The ambience was cool but the staff ruined it and we won’t be returning.

    Went for happy hour Tuesday so price was good. Food came out immediately and it was obvious it wasn’t prepared fresh bc the hot items were cold. Not a ton of flavor to be honest. Took solid 25 min to get drink, we were almost done with our food by then. Drinks… look cool, don’t taste great. Service was really subpar

    The hostess was wonderful, friendly, and welcoming. We used a passbook (coupon), the server seemed a bit put off by that. We tipped off the original price despite her attitude. The food was ok. We got a sesame salad with chicken and the jerk chicken platter. The salad was really salty and the jerk chicken plate didn't look appetizing without the flower they add for decor. There was a small ball of rice and it was also salty. The edamame hummus was probably the best-tasting thing, but still too salty. Prices have definitely gone up, and to us aren't worth the portion sizes.

    Overall very good, but felt rushed throughout due to their 2 hour dining policy. Were almost refused a 2nd round of drinks with 40 minutes to go. Understandable that they had another reservation but not very welcoming.

    The bartender does not know how to make a Mai Tai and they are over priced during happy hour! They also use house rum which gave me a huge headache. The food was over priced as well and you only get 2 small pieces of spam sushi! Not worth it!

    Everything was great there except for the drinks which is the major draw of the place besides the ambience/ tiki vibe. My gf and I felt like a high schooler made our cocktails, they were strong but tasted pretty awful. The food and service were both exceptional and we will likely return back there to eat again but we'll stick to beer next time.

    Loze the ambiance. Went there to celebrate a friend's birthday and was saddened the la ji zi chicken was no longer on the menu. Liked the appetizers (fries and shrimp) the bowl with jerk chicken was ok... rice was undercooked and the chicken had good flavor. The drinks are the highlight. Really cool place to have a unique experience night in Denver.

    This was one of the worst dining experiences we've ever had. We had a reservation and waited about 15 minutes to be sat which I can understand. During this time we were able to order drinks on our phones which we did. We didn't get our drinks for about 30 minutes. The drinks were good. The food was OK, my cousins liked their bowl, but my jerk chicken was cold. No one checked on us. We ordered a second drink and after 30 minutes asked our server and she told us the bar never got the order. We then waited another 20 minutes for that drink and were offered complimentary shots. They only brought 2 for a party of 4 after offering shots for everyone. To be fair the second drink we ordered was a bowl and they lit it on fire which was fun. After this, we tried checking out and after another 20 minutes got our check. We then saw the complimentary shots were NOT complimentary. We waited for our server to come back and she never did. After 15 minutes we waved down another server who said our server left. Our old server literally bounced and didn't say anything to us. The new server said she would help remove the shots and she never came back either. Eventually we got up and waved down another server who somehow managed to immediately remove the shots and help us pay. I could not believe how terrible the service was. We will never go back!

    Drinks seemed to be of less quality. Also less “potent”. Felt like the rums or juices/ingredients changed…My server (dude with a black man bun) was high or pretty drunk and went to pat my gf on the head. Very weird and made us uncomfortable.

    I don’t even know what to say. We had such an amazing time at Adrift. It’s everything you’d want in a tiki bar. The atmosphere is lively and colorful, the drinks are actually served in beverage-appropriate tiki mugs, the food is awesome, and the value is actually decent. Could not recommend more highly for a fun evening
