The staff is excellant and the food was cooked perfectly. The raw oyster selection is not large but definitely the best of the east coast. My wife had the freshest scallops cooked to perfection. My own chef special Tuna was slightly overcooked, to my taste, but the Mediterranean preparation and taste put that thought out of mind. I expect my wife and i will return for our 40 anniversary.

Drift was really 'on' last time we went. Hubby had the mahi mahi and loved it, I had the lobster special which was very good.

Restaurant was rather busy on an early Sun. night - it might have been because it stormed the night before (we had to postpone our ressie too) and people came on Sun.

Good start for the New Year!

Seated at the closest table to the restrooms;
Appetizer (fritters) was excellent
Wine very good
My filet was cooked properly but lacked flavor and was barely warm
My wife's Lobster plate was also barely warm.
We sent both back and they came out hot, however, filet was still not flavorful. I know they have less than most steaks but still unremarkable.

This particular visit was on New Year's Eve and had a fun 1920's theme for the night. This was demonstrated in both the decor of the restaurant, the costumes the wait staff wore and even fun Prohibition-style cocktail drinks available. Drift is a restaurant that I visit somewhat frequently, so I am very familiar with their regular menu. It was a lot of fun to be able to try special items offered for the special event on NYE. Food was fantastic (as always), and the servers and management were all so helpful and made sure we had a wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend trying if you haven't been before.
