we were very pleased
We took our son and his wife for an anniversary dinner so we wanted it to be special.
Everyone was thrilled with their meal. Very good food all around.

Wonderful dining experience
From appetizer to dessert, everything was outstanding. Even the olive oil on the table for dipping the fresh bread was delicious. Our server was very polite and accommodating. I can't say anything negative about the place.

Excellent food. Professional service. Great dining experience.

As usual, the food was superb and the service was courteous but not annoying. The wild salmon special was perfectly cooked. My partner had the braised pork chop with asparagus - the pork had a very good flavor and was so moist. The perfectly prepared meal with good but not overwhelming portions. This is our #1 eating place in the Triad for any special occasion.

Excellent options for a light or full meal. Wonderful variety. Crab cakes were fantastic!

Best lunch in Greensboro!
I will work my schedule around to have lunch at the Undercurrent. Every selection is fit for foodies - but be sure you save room for the desert! Always worth every calorie!!

Undercurrent Lobster Dinner
A simple and wonderful lobster dinner - chopped romaine salad followed by very good lobster, a little rice pilaf and haricot verts. Klaude's recommended rose and the kitchen's bread completed one of Undercurrent's best lobster dinners.
With blueberries in season, we also had blueberry chess pie with the kitchen's vanilla ice cream. Both were excellent.
A wonderful night in a great room with perfect service.

Wonder dinner for our group
Wonder dinner for our group of 8. Not one taste was disappointing and the service was wonderful. Best birthday dinner ever!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We needed a quiet spot for just the two of us to catch up and this was perfect. Absolutely delicious meals, attentive but obtrusiveness wait staff. Relaxed evening.

The Undercurrent is a wonderful place to dine! The menu has a gret deal of variety and as I am vegetarian, the chef is happy to great a dish for me off the menu. Every time we have dined her it has been a singular experience. The service has been exemplary each time we been to the Undercurrent- friendly,fun an professional! I highly recommend it

Great Greensboro dining
Very nice rotating menu that does well with local ingredients/suppliers. Interesting mix of older couples and younger ones on dates. Not too many young children. I appreciate the option of large and small plates for the entrees.

Undercurrent - - underwhelming
Atmosphere is upscale and pleasant, service was excellent, menu was varied. We had Spinach salad, Corn Soup, and Lobster Spring Rolls - - all superb..
Entrees, not so good -- the chef went overboard attempting to be unique. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the Pork Tenderloin, except for the mish-mash of rice and unidentifiable vegetable underpinnings that accompanied it. I had Carolina Bison - - cooked perfectly, very good as well, except for the Split Pea-Tasso, and Black Garlic Chimichurri. Unusual accompaniments are fine if offered as a choice of side items, but more traditional offerings should be available with each entree as well - - too avant garde, and too few choices here - we only ate the meat. Sometimes less is more ....

Great way to spend my anniversary!
My fiancee and I love Undercurrent. We recently got engaged and celebrated our second anniversary there. As always, Undercurrent made for a lovely evening we were looking forward to all week!
My fiancee is a vegetarian, and we love that the chef will make vegetarian substitutions for many of the dishes. Love!

We had a fantastic meal and overall experience. The Vanilla/pepper ice cream was a delightful surprise! Ambiance is super and the waitstaff was extremely knowlegable.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our 6-person group was talking animatedly the whole time and it was as if the service "just happened". It was seamless, unobtrusive, thoughtful, always anticipating what we wanted and when. The service made the evening memorable for all of us.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The epitome of fine dining, superior service and comfortable, yet elegant atmosphere. This was a most pleasant experience.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a wonderful 38 th anniversary dinner that included soup, and seafood. Our martinis were perfecting All was superbly prepared and had so much Umami!!

Watch out for inappropriate
Watch out for inappropriate presence of children. How selfish are parents these days?

Birthday Dinner For Wife
Restaurant was very nice. Enjoyed everything from the service to the atmosphere.Great wine selection and you can't go wrong with any salad you chose. Will definitely be returning soon.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The staff was very nice in assisting us with table seating. We were not happy with original seat, moved twice before we were satisfied. We had requested a "private, nice table"...Everything worked out in the end, we dined outside. There was a too long delay in received check after completion of meal.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was great and dining there was a wonderful experience! I'm definitely going back!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Undercurrent's second Lobster Night of the summer was as outstanding as the first. The room was crowded, the crowd was happy, the lobsters were sweet. and Klaude's suggested Italian rose was a good match.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always the best dining experience
The Undercurrent never fails to please. The food is outstanding and the service impeccable.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very tasty spot in Greensboro!
Loved Undercurrent! The food was fantastic, chef really now's how to combine unique flavors. The red snapper was perfect, the duck as well. Desserts were home made and really great. Highly recommend!
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
First visit in a while. Nice ambiance and excellent service. Good variety of menu selections and excellent wine list. Nice fine dining experience. Wonderful place to take a date.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food...service needs work!
I've been to several of the 'upper' restaurants in Greensboro and I would say this one rates very high for food quality, taste, and presentation. Service needs a bit of work; our waiter was a nice enough gentlemen, I just don't think the food service industry is where he belongs. What separates the great restaurants from the above average ones are the professionalism of the staff, my perception of the undercurrent would have been much higher if our server didn't apprentice at Perkins.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not my first visit to this lovely downtown restaurant, but by far, my favorite visit. It is every bit as elegant and creative as I remembered. Food was fresh, seasonal and artfully prepared and served. Service was impeccable. Top-notch from start to finish.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
great place to eat
We got there earlier than our reservation but were seated promptly. Service was good and we were not rushed. Wine list was very good and monthly specials were excellent. Waitress was very knowledgeable about gluten free ingredients. Food was excellent and plentiful. Overall a very pleasant dining experience.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
An Excellent experience!
We were so pleased with the menu choice and quality of the food. The ladies were especially excited
to be able to choose from small plates and half entrees. We would especially recommend the trout and the bread pudding!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been eating here for years and
every meal has been excellent. The
presentation is outstanding along with
the service and ambiance.
Recommend for lunch or dinner.

Excellent Flavors at a Good Price
The food was the main attraction at Undercurrent. Very flavorful. We started with a cheese plate, which was reasonably good, but the real treat were the entrees. I had pork tenderloin on fava beans, bok choy, and greens. My wife had lamb with couscous and green beans. Really good food. And the price was very reasonable as well.

Dinner for Four
Great dishes and service all around on a relatively slow night at Undercurrent.
Oyster salad, mussels, pate', rack of lamb, trout and chicken - all well presented and delicious.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We think Undercurrent is the best restaurant is Greensboro...when we want a special night out,,,,that is where we go....Knowing the food and service will be excellent.....We have NEVER been disappointed
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great meal!
My wife and I frequent Undercurrent probably more than the other nicer restaurants in the city for a reason. The food is excellent and the wine list is great. The service is always top-notch and they are knowledgeable about the meals. Always a good time.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We really enjoyed dining here! I had the sweet potato bisque and Opai special and both were absolutely delicious! The Opai was prepared perfectly and had a beautiful presentation! We also shared the crab cake as an appetizer and it was great! The bread was also very good. Great restaurant and I will definitely return!
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always enjoy the Undercurrent and think it is one of the best restaurants in the area. They always have several unique choices on the menu, which changes seasonally (this time we tried the Bison flank steak). One thing that is especially nice is the option to get an entree in a "small" or "regular"portion - great for folks who want a gourmet dining experience but not a huge portion. The "small" plate was still a good size serving.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place is so cozy and
This place is so cozy and inviting, especially the bar. Nice, big, comfy, chairs for relaxing with after dinner Port.

We have never been disappointed
We have never been disappointed when dining at Undercurrent. It sets the standard in fine dining in the Triad for its depth of menu and creativity.

Well Prepared Food
The food at UnderCurrent was well prepared with quality ingredients. The selection wines is broad and slightly over priced. The one disappointment was the quality of the waiter that served our table. He was in a hurry with little sensitivity to the timing of delivering our food. It was not a busy night, yet it seemed he was in a big hurry and actually wasn't very polished for a restaurant of this caliber. I will go again, and hopefully will have a different wait staff.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dining experience -- menu expansive and varied. Particularly liked the scallop and muscles apertizers.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of our favorite restaurants. Food was delicious. The pork tenderloin was not presented as well as we have become accustomed to. We definitely recommend the UnderCurrent. Greensboro is very fortunate to have such a fine restaurant.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Celebration dinner -all night long
We had a wonderful dinner with excellent service. The food was great, the setting was perfect. Timing for serving appetizers and the main course was spot on. The ONLY downfall is that the "decaf" was not -- and at 4:00 a.m. I was still struggling to go to sleep. One would expect an upscale restaurant to be careful of the request to serve decaf. If we return, we will not be able to enjoy a nice warm cup to cap off the evening...it's not worth the sleepless night.

Green Valley Grill has been consistently excellent since it opened. They really understand how to design a menu and a restaurant physical plant, how to provide elegant but unobtrusive service, and how to deliver hot and delicious food in a timely manner. A sure thing.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was great and the atmosphere was formal and romantic. I took my friend here for his birthday and neither of us had ever dined here but we both had heard excellent things from friends who had. It was very luxurious and I felt relaxed and not rushed. Our server was attentive and left us alone except to take our orders and refill our glasses. It was very fancy without being stuffy.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of my favorite places to eat!
Everything was great. Perry our waiter was superb!
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Seven of us girls gathered to celebrate a birthday. Great place for a great time.
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
I came for my birthday for the first time. I really enjoyed my meal. Would love to try some other things on the menu next time!
12/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoyed our dinner very
We enjoyed our dinner very much. We were greeted in such a nice way when we arrived. Coats were taken to a coat room (nice touch) with a ticket so coats returned to the correct owner. Our waiter and staff were informed and attentive. The food was delicious and had a nice presentation. The ambiance and décor was great and the lighting was soft and enough to read the menu.
A very nice evening and we would highly recommend Undercurrent to our friends.
