    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.

    If you go to Adrift, you need to get a Chi-Chi and the Gochujang Pork Belly and then you need to do that over and over and over again

    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!

    Loved everything about this place! The ambiance is tiki-festive, the food was great--and the cocktails were tasty. Definitely recommend getting a reservation--there were a lot of people waiting outside for spots at the bar to become open.

    Always great service from the moment we enter Adrift. There is an allergy in our group and the staff always takes that into consideration with what is ordered. The drinks are made with great rum and makes it very easy to order more than one.

    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.

    Bartenders are more interested in tips and pretty much run the show. Go early if you actually care about ambiance because once the bar crowd hits, they could care less about the theme. Food is always good.

    I’ve been to numerous tiki bars. I love tiki bars. This tiki bar was, to me, a cheap over accessorized version of a “tiki bar”. The point of a tiki bar for the most part is ambiance. There is way too much lighting effects for this type of bar. I kept getting blinded by lights. The service was ok. Our waiter, when we saw him, was a sweetheart. But I saw that he was over whelmed with tables. The drinks were good. But when food comes out before drinks… well maybe they need more bar staff. I’d try more drinks but the waiter never checked on us. The food was ok. The jerk chicken had about 4 pieces of chicken. The fries were good. Aioli sauce was delicious. Overall.., if you want to continue was a tiki bar. Take about half the lights out. Less is more. Too cheesy!

    Super fun drinks! Especially loved the house daiquiri. Food was yummy and prompt. We did have to wait quite a bit to be sat although we had a reservation but I think that was a fluke, the rest of our service was very prompt.

    We would have stayed longer than the two hour time limit given and would have spent a lot more. I asked the server for more time and he said ok, then at the end said I’m sorry they are strict on timing. I was ready to order the 4 person bowl next. We spend $100 on Uber one way to get to this place thinking it would be a fun night (and we expected to have more drinks) but we ended up back at home by 9:30pm with our own drinks out back. Not a good birthday experience, it actually sucked do to this. And I only turn 40 once…Oh well its over now. I didn’t know about the time limit (maybe my fault for not reading but I did not on the reservation it was our first time) and I get it but you would have made at least $300 more from us easy (evaluate your guests and what they are spending before they are kicked out!) We never stopped ordering and we’re basically cut off and even asked to get up 5 minutes after our 2 hour limit. :( What makes it worse is I made a note about this being my 40th birthday night, our first time there, taking Uber from Brighton and being excited to enjoy the night and they did say oh a birthday when we checked in but you think more consideration would be given.

    Do you like vacation? If so, this is the place to go! The tiki drinks are delicious, well crafted and worth it. We had the jungle bird and the Chi Chi with the screwball whisky add on- so good. We had a date night and highly recommend ordering the appetizer shrimp escabeche first - delicious! Then we had the pork belly lettuce wrap platter to share. The pork belly is perfectly cooked, sauces all delicious - do yourself a favor and add a side of the soy glazed shiitake mushrooms to this platter, it really adds flavor to the wraps! We also had a side of Hawaiian Mac salad because when in Hawaii ;) all in all it was the perfect amount of food for two and excellent scenery. Enjoy your staycation at Adrift

    Our experience at Adrift Tiki Bar was extremely pleasant. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu & all the staff members were super helpful. The drinks were also delicious, and there was a great selection of food and beverages on the menu. It was super cool to learn that this is one of the few bars that can legally be called a legitimate tiki bar! I would definitely recommend this place!

    I always love coming here. The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars is due to the delayed service. Food was great as usual. Our waitress was very sweet and attentive as she could be. I think they are currently short staffed and it put a delay. I don’t blame them! It’s a tough time right now. I will be back many times over I’m sure.
