    Best find in Tarpon Springs. The food was exceptional both times we had dinner. The service was great and the atmosphere very welcoming and comfortable. A great spot for a special occasion or date night. I would not say it has a vibrant bar scene, but it does have a very nice bar to sit and drink or dine.

    My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Currents. This was our first visit to the restaurant. We were greeted and escorted to our table which had an anniversary greeting card with our names on it. Very nice touch by Currents staff. Our server, Casey, was wonderful allowing us time to have a leisurely cocktail before ordering appetizers and our main courses. Our meals were very good, cooked perfectly and very tasty. The wine list is small but adequate. We don't get to Tarpon Springs often but we would dine at Currents again.

    We have been to Currents many times and have always felt welcomed right from the moment we walked in. We did enjoy our meal and our server, Casey, was excellent...very friendly, efficient, accommodating and professional...just the kind of person we have come to expect to encounter at Currents. The food arrived quickly and was really delicious. The grouper is always exceptional, the salads are fresh and tasty and the bread pudding is to die for!!! Love Currents!!!!

    Dined here on Saturday night at 6:30 with reservations. Not busy, but slowly filled up. Make reservations! Our hostess Emily welcomed us warmly and seated us immediately. Marius was our attentive waiter. My 2 companions and I just couldn't decide what to order. It all sounded so good. We weren't rushed and actually stayed quite a while. A guitarist played very quiet, relaxing music in the background. Two of us had the Filet Mignon- medium rare- and it was OUTSTANDING. Melted in our mouths. It has a very delicate bacon jam topping. Our other friend had the duck, which she loved. Loved the Flatbread appy & Charcuterie Plate. Cheesecake- divine! Food was VERY fresh and DELICIOUS! Will definitely return. Wine was reasonable.

    We have been here many, many times all before new Chef, McDonald of some three weeks or so. Food was not nearly as great as from previous Chef. Also, wait staff keeps changing.....we had jesse, a ways back, then another man, can't recall his name just now, but he is gone now also...This time we has Gabrielle, and she just was trying too hard to please.She said menu had completely changed. Didn't see much of a chand, still had Grouper, Salmon....Filet, Ribeye, pork.....but would like to see some creations. Disapointed with taste of food, and at an upscale tab, don't think we will be back anytime soon. Will go to Bonefish or Mystic Fish....

    Dined on 9/13/2014
    We dined here with friends. We were looking forward eating here it but the service we received that night was awful. We only had a 3 course meal - salads, main & dessert & it took us 2.75 hours. Our waiter was very inattentive & we had to ask for each refill, & the timing between courses was horrendous. We did express our irritation to the waiter as it took approx 1 hour after our salad to receive our entrée. You would have thought he would have been more attentive after that but he wasn't. When we asked for the check, because we were waiting on that too, instead of being attentive to picking it up soon he went missing again then he decided to bus a nearby table instead of cashing us out quickly. Food, when received, was great.

    Went for the first time. I ordered the wedge salad with grilled snapper. The food wasn't a culinary experience, the salad was good, but the fish OK. The waiter suggested Jumbo Lump Crab Cake Sandwich. The smell was wonderful. ..... Next time I'll be sure to get it.

  • FANTASTIC FIND

    Dined on 9/5/2014
    While visiting my daughter and son-in-law for my wife's Birthday, I did an Open Table search and there were only 3 restaurants in the area that accepted reservation. One that surfaced to the top was Currents in Tarpon Springs. Since my wife and I live in Wellington, FL, we wanted to make sure that we found a place that was upscale and had great food/service. Based on my search, we ended up at Current and we were so happy with the choice. The food was outstanding, the service was excellent, the atmosphere was romantic and the management was wonderful. this is a true find for the area and I highly recommend Currents for anyone wanted a quiet romantic dinner, any type of celebration or just taking guest to dinner. Absolutely Awesome!

    We went for a romantic dinner. The nice thing is that that have someone playing a guitar with nice music while you dine. The Grouper was fantastic and so were the vegetables and crab cake. We made reservations through open table. They were not quite ready for us, but really got on it to get us a table of our choice; so very accommodating.

    When I booked a table at Currents I said in "special requests" that I was a vegan and hoped to have some rice or quinoa with vegetables, if possible. Also that I was bringing my elderly mother with me to celebrate my 60th birthday. We got there early because the cab was early, but we were seated immediately...at a table with a birthday card for me! Our waitress, Stacey, was fabulous and treated us so warmly, giving particular attention and patience to my mother. PLUS, she said the chef had prepared a special vegan offering for me of wild rice and sauteed vegetables. Excellent food and service. The owner/manager walked us tot he door when we left. Highly recommended.

    The night that we dined here it was their 5th anniversary celebration. Even though we had a reservation, it took them an hour to get us seated. The service was slow for drink orders as well as dinner. I am sure that had it not been for the anniversary party going on our dining experience would have been better. The menu had a nice variety and I am sure we will return to give it a second try.

    We visited Tarpon Springs for our 25th anniversary and received a recommendation to go to Currents for dinner. What a great choice! Since it was a week night, the place was not busy and the staff were very focused on us ... including having an anniversary card for us (nice touch). Excellent food & excellent service made it a very special dinner.

    Currents, downtown Tarpon Springs, is a marvelous restaurant....from the greeter, servers, bartender, entertainer and manager . Our latest dinner last Friday was superb (my wife's filet was perfect and my grouper fantastic) with the gravlax appetizer phenomenal. With such a friendly staff who go out of their way to make your experience special, Currents is truly a Tarpon Springs treasure.

    After enjoying our anniversary meal the bill was presented with a card from the management and staff recognizing our special day. No other restaurant in 39 years has ever done that, even those close to home where we have been regular customers. Real class! Food was great, service attentive. Amid all the ethnic restaurants in the area, Currents stands out for its European flair.

    Have eaten here 5 times......Good menu, entrees are very good, but the salads need work...especially avoid the Caesar....(they need to revamp their salads again..they did once before, but it's still not right!) To bad as it knocks this place down to just above average instead of Very Good...price value relationship is good...Duck is very good as is the seafood...steaks are well prepared are good. They could have a gem here, but they need some tweeking......
