Truly delicious well-prepared food. Excellent service. An urban metal warehouse decor, but not as noisy and echo-y as those sometimes are. Highly recommend.

I love this loCation and the building is beautiful!! The service was incredible. Unfortunately the food was such a giant letdown. Our ribeye was overcooked and the black cod was unbelievably fishy. We were so excited but it just wasn’t good. 👎🏻

Love the atmosphere. The wait staff is helpful and attentive. The food was terrible. Luckily they didn’t charge me for it. I’ve always liked the food, but not this time.

More than I expected. We went for a birthday. The extra details that were provided for the birthday person were perfect. The food was comparable to that of fish markets that I have been to on the Warf in DC and the Pier in San Francisco. Highly recommended!

Wonderful dinner with my daughter at Current. We shared a couple dishes after the oyster "starter" and every course was wonderful. We ordered the chicken, which sounds boring, but was quite the contrary. Delicious! Recommend wholeheartedly....

Decent food, though priced way too high for the quality. Service was terrible. Took 25 minutes to get my cocktail that was ordered when we first sat down, meals came slow at various times for our small group of 4. 2 plates were cold by the time they got to us.

We had a reservation and were seated immediately upon arrival. We are all allow to have bad nights, but to say the waitress was disinterested would be as politely as I could put it. The food was cooked to perfection, but for the price I expect more than a tapas portion.

I've been to Current twice now. The first time I ate at the bar by myself and this time in a booth with my boyfriend. Both times were simply lovely. Current is perhaps a little pretentious. But if you can overlook that, the food and drink are great. My server suggested a bottle of wine that wasn't on the list that was excellent. Our food was cooked well and tasted yummy. My entree was only $19 and my boyfriend's was $25, so not even too pricey. Besides the food, the atmosphere is nice. I really appreciate that they kept as much as they could from an old building.

Trendy dining experience, excellent value for the price for a business lunch. The vegan friendly cauliflower sandwich was very tasty and thoughtfully prepared, and was overall a substantive lunch in a usually difficult to accommodate style of cuisine. I would come back. Only critique was quite a lot of sun on the tables during the lunch hour and service slowed as the lunch hour picked up.

We had Spanish octopus to start and then the Zabuton and the Black Cod and both were excellent. Will return to this restaurant when we are in town.

Great food, and service.
Very expensive, it is a place that you might want to go once or twice a year at the most.
No complimentary bread either.
But oh well, the food was amazingly delicious!

Wonderful Pacific NW oysters and delicious scallops and fish. Service is good. Atmosphere is nice and though crowded, the noise level was manageable. Decent martinis as well. Recommended for good seafood

Good restaurant but nothing spectacular. Our party enjoyed scallops, steak, and salmon and each entree was good but nothing particularly special that you couldn't get elsewhere. We were told Current was probably the best restaurant in SLC, but I'd have to disagree. I would go there again and recommend it to friends, but missing the simple things (such as complimentary home-baked bread or house specials that are truly unique) keep Current in the average range, especially given the price.

I always give Current a good review because it is a very solid and consistent restaurant. The oysters are premier and should be a must to start any dinner. The wine list is pretty okay and has some good values although they might consider reducing the prices of a few of the lower price point wines: a 4 times mark-up is a bit much for some of their wines. Our server was friendly and attentive and when we arrived on time for our reservation we were immediately seated which is very nice. Overall this is a good choice for dinner downtown.

As always, amazing food and preparation! Love the choices and freshness of the fish. It was all good until the milk for tea was spilled when the server came to clear the table and it ran all over our dining companions pants and sweater. 😳

For three online friends getting to know each other, Current at 4:00 on a Friday afternoon was PERFECT! It was quiet and conducive to conversation while enjoying delicious food and great service. My Cobb Salad was scrumptious, and the Fish n' Chips that my friends ordered looked divine - and HUGE! We had a great time, and I would readily recommend Current to anyone wanting a nice (and expensive) dinner in Salt Lake City.

Loved Current. Food was amazing. Service was very good. Oysters were great. Started with crab cakes. They were very good. I had the shrimp and grits. I lived in New Orleans so I know shrimp and grits! Current lived up to good shrimp and grits! I would recommend and will Definitely will be going back.

I love this place, it has an elegant industrial vibe. The interior is classy and old fashioned, but still sleek. The service was excellent, our waitress tried her best to accommodate us with a smile on her face. She know the menu well and was very attentive. The oysters were fresh and the octopus was well cooked, tender and flavorful.
