Our food was great, as always. This restaurant does get quite crowded on weekends, so make sure to make reservations.

The typical steak and seafood
The typical steak and seafood cohort is offered in unusual and delicious presentations. All was perfectly done. Elegant dining and an upscale bar coexist nicely in a small-ish area, feeling very European in its use of space. Our waiter was helpful without being intrusive. All tables have a view of the street scene, but from a slightly elevated space that keeps you from feeling spied on by pedestrians. Great for special occasions with a loved one.

We hadnt been there in quite some time but it was very good and made us wonder why? The food was very tasty and the service was really good although a little slow. Nice ambiance with the live music. We will definately be back more often.

Great Saturday lunch.
Delicious! We dined at Currents on April 6th, the food and atmosphere were both wonderful. I had the smoked salmon BLT without the B, it was delicious and there was an ample serving of salmon on the sandwich. My husband had the Neptune pasta with the hot brandy cream sauce, he cleaned his plate. We had the most amazing perfectly spicy bloody mary's, wish I had one now! To end the meal we shared the bread pudding, yummy!
The service was friendly and not over bearing.
If you are in Tarpon and you are looking for a change of pace from the docks please go downtown. We will certainly be going there next time we are in Tarpon Springs, I would love to try the apps on the dinner menu.

The perfect dining experience!
Congratulations to the management of this restaurant for creating the perfect dining experience! This was our first visit, but you can be we're regulars now.
4/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our first time at Currents and we had a outstanding dinner. The Lobster & Crab Bisque, Jumbo Shrimp and Colossal Crab Conceicao and the Char-Grilled Grouper were excellent. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Have a Rip Tide at the bar first. We will definitely return.

Highest quality food in the area
This restaurant is on par with any fine restaurant in a big city. The place was very clean, service was impeccable, the food very tasty, and the value - this meal could easily command double its price in NYC. We ordered escargot for an app, it was uniquely prepared in a cream sauce, with crisp crackers. WOW. For dinner we had the salmon and the steak, we both cleaned our plates. The peppercorn steak was very good, cooked exactly to order. The chef is clearly skilled and cares about what he serves. This place is WAY under-attended, its worth the trip!

Food is terrific! Restaurant
Food is terrific! Restaurant ambiance is just so-so. It was also incredibly warm in there. Somewhat dated decor, in my opinion. But the service and food is worth it!

My favorite restaurant in this area
Always enjoy this place. Food is excellent, staff is very friendly and they serve my favorite white wine KJ chard.

Love this place
Great experience cuz chef is excellent, good atmosphere and great service. Also the owner is hands on and knows how to market by offering special nightly and weekly menus. . We were just there but because of a special menu and price offering we are returning next week.

We were seated promptly by
We were seated promptly by a very friendly hostess. After that, things really slowed down. I don't think they have enough servers. While the food was very good (crab cakes, beef carpaccio, duck breast, etc.) It took us 2 hours to eat diner. Stacy was very friendly, but I think she was just spread too thin.
We'll be back.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our visit was once again wonderful. Delicious, original and inspired menu choices coupled with attentive and excellent service. Nice wine list and martini menu. For such a small establishment the kitchen constantly puts out huge, unordinary flavors.
Unfortunately, we were hurried to make another commitment and left behind our take home leftovers, but just another excuse to visit again.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I want it kelp secret for me
Currents is excellent on all fronts. The food will satisfy the most discerning foodie. The service is excellent with the best waiters and waitresses in Tampa Bay. The atmosphere is quite and romantic. The scene is old town Tarpon right on the Pinellas County Trail.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Well worth the drive from Tampa
What a pleasant surprise! My wife and I found Currents on Open Table, and gave it a try.
We totally enjoyed our dining experience.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food! Where is the service?
Small, cute local restaurant with a more upscale menu. Waiting time for greeting, then drink offers, then drinks, then appetizers was excessive, with an apology every time. There were only 2 servers...needed at least 1 more, maybe 2. When we finally got our salads, our entrees were served 30 seconds later. At that point, the other server came over and apologized and offered to buy us desserts. We're not sure if it was a kitchen or server problem. We will go back again because the food was absolutely excellent!! We appreciated the desserts as an apology and can only hope service will be better the next time!
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We really enjoyed this taste of local dining in Tarpon Springs. The service was wonderful as was the food! A really, really, nice restaurant in the "historic/old" section of town. Prices were reasonable and the menu excellent.

Great meal and great atmosphere. Went for a nice dinner and was not disappointed!!!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The crab & lobster bisque was delicious! Our server was sweet but service was slow. That was ok because we weren't in a rush. My shrimp was tastey but overcooked slightly. Wasn't impressed with Caesar salad. Friends loved the flat breads and house salad. The menu looks so interesting, I'd like to make my way through it.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Go to spot
Our dinner at currents was outstanding. Server was charming. Personal touch of Birthday card on table. Looking forward to taking friends there. Well be back, thanks for a wonderful evening.

One of the Best
My husband is gluten intolerant, but at Currents it is no big deal. Everything on their menu is gluten free except the meatloaf. They really know how to cook fish. Never overdone. Seasoning is just right. The food is excellent and the waitstaff is supurb. There are a lot of smiles and you know when you leave, you will be back again. This is our go=to restaurant for special occasions and when we just want to feel pampered.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, fabulous service
Love this place. Food is great and the Service is the awesome. We like to try different items on the menu and all have been good. I still like the grouper best. The town had a wine walk on our last visit. Disruptive and loud. Next time will check local city event calendar prior to making reservations. Waitress Stacy, is the BEST. Will be back.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service. Great food.
Great service. Great food. Great experience. Highly recommended!

One of our favorites in the area!
The crab cake appetizer was excellent. Two in our party of four had the Pompano special and loved it. My strip steak special with crumbled bacon was cooked perfectly and was very good. Our server was pleasant, friendly and very professional. It was a little hectic and louder than normal because there was a neighborhood wine walk going on this night but it was interesting to watch and ended early. One complaint, the wine glasses are terrible. They are heavy and they only have one size for both white and red. Get some new wine glasses and expand the wine list!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great night out
Took some friends who had never been - everyone enjoyed the food and service at the table. Very personable. Wonderful menu. Only negative would be that we arrived early and it took 15 minutes to get a drink at the bar - not because she was too busy - just not a very good bartender. When she did serve us - she gave my husband the wrong drink but after waiting so long - we were ready to move forward with our table.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friends and my husband and I really enjoyed our evening. We made the suggest to visit Currents and they loved the restaurant.
Kudos to Stacy, our server, to the Chef and to the restaurant owner who also visited our table. It was a wonderful experience.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Five of us dined here on Saturday evening. It was a first visit for all of us and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. I'm gluten free and often have limited choices. There were very few things on the menu that I could not have and it was difficult to decide. I had the pork tenderloin and it was outstanding. I will definitely be back! I also like that you can make a reservation and not have to wait.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great service, and fair prices. The crab and lobster bisque is delicious! Highly recommended!
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Currents is a great meeting place!
Loved the OpenTable reservation process. We were pleasantly surprised that, due to having to schedule our lunch meeting for a little later, we were able to have the place to ourselves after dining and had a very productive meeting! The server was wonderfully accommodating and the atmosphere both relaxing and a nice treat in the middle of a work day. Our food was delicious, as always, with the Lobster bisque a big hit. I would highly recommend scheduling your lunch meetings at Currents!
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food in a Convenient Location
In addition to great entrée specials, CURRENTS serves great wine and fresh salads. My husband particularly likes the lobster bisque. We always see many friends there, so it is always fun. In addition, on weekends a guitarist plays great background music.

The Perfect Place in Tarpon Springs
Currents is one of the best restaurants Tarpon Springs, Florida has to offer. The service is top-notch, the food is excellent, and, the location (in the middle of the city's historic area) is ideal. The seafood is always fresh, and, the martinis are always cold. There are a lot of excellent dining choices in Tarpon Springs to be sure, but, if you have to make a choice, Currents is the way to go.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a fantastic little gem
What a fantastic little gem located in downtown Tarpon Springs, nestled between all the antique shops. A small quaint restaurant with very attentive waitresses, a good selection of wines and cocktails for happy hour, and top notch chefs. Every entree was served with the freshest daily picked veggies. I loved the coziness of this restaurant,the white table cloths, the quality of food served and the fantastic desserts. This has made my list of fine dinning and I look forward to spending many more occasions there.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
A delightful experience -
A delightful experience - fresh grouper and fresh shrimp. And, other very tempting entrees and specials.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful staff and food
Again, this small, neighborhood gem impressed. The wait staff is exceptional and the food is delicious and nicely presented. Not too much over the top but, consistent home style flavors. A local favorite with great ambiance.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Currents is a great place to dine. They are friendly and very professional. The place is a not too formal. We love it each time we go there!

Hidden Greek but not really
This little gem is hidden in Tarpon Springs so we thought it was going to be Greek given the large Greek community there. Not at all. Food was varied, original and delicious. We found this on Open Table while on vacation at Innisbrook Resort. Its a ten minute car ride and do worth it. Roasted pork tenderloin, escargot, Carpaccio all very notable.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent food with equal service
Although open 4.5 years, this place felt like a striving restaurant anxious to please, provide excellent and special meal choices with service that was very attentive but not pretentious or overbearing. Cost was reasonable. We spent a week in the area and ate here twice, with the first coming only because our original choice was closed. Highly recommend and this is a restaurant that is a cut above everything else in the area.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food, charming ambience
Our group of four enjoyed the friendly wait staff and most of our entrees (meatloaf, salmon, filet, and shrimp) and wine very much. My generous serving of salmon had a salty crust that concealed a moist, medium-rare center, sandwiched between mashed potatoes below and sauteed spinach on top. Excellent flavor and visual appeal. The blue cheese and raspberry sauce coated meatloaf was a welcome change for my husband who often relies on catsup to make meatloaf edible. The filet was okay and the shrimp entree, while fresh, did not live up to its spicy-Cajun description. The live music was great! And artwork on the walls, fish mobile, big windows overlooking the street, etc. give the place style and interest. We will return!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of the best in the area!
The escargot appetizer in a cream sauce with crostini was the best I have ever had. Two of us had it and both felt the same. My NY strip steak was cooked to perfection, sliced with peppercorn sauce. Service was excellent. Musician playing a guitar softly added the right ambiance. We eat here every time we are in town and have always been pleased. People are friendly and it is truly, one of the best in the area!
