This was our second time dining here, food and service was once again fabulous. However, in comparison to our first visit, a few things about the food and drinks threw me for a little bit of a disappointing loop. The first time I had ordered their house ginger soda, that had basil and lime stuffed in there, and it was BOMB. The second time, I had one basil leaf on top, which didnt leave the drink nearly as tasty. I assume a different bar tender, but I do expect some constancy with 'house' items such as this. I would only order it again if it was the first bar tender we had experienced. Also, the first time dining I had the scallops which again were fabulous, one of the BEST MEALS I HAVE EVER HAD IN SALT LAKE. However, we had observed some tempting fish and chips walk by and decided on this second time to try those out. They were indeed great fish and chips, but one thing that totally failed on the plate was their 'slaw'. When mentioning it to the server he stated it was more of a garnish. In my opinion when you experience fine dining, everything on the plate, entree or garnish it should be delicious. It was a minor thing but still and easy spot to step it up a few notches. All in all great restaurant, but some constancy and elevated items on the plate would really help make it a top, or THE top place in Salt Lake for seafood.

We enjoyed our anniversary dinner very much. All my food limitations were taken seriously and chef prepared a delicious halibut that was perfectly prepared.

The food here is excellent but the new hostess is anything but. I specifically requested a quiet table, we arrived at 4 pm and the restaurant was empty with the exception of one loud table. The hostess choose to completely ignore my request for a quiet table and insisted on putting us right next to the loud party. Ridiculous. We've been to this place multiple times and never had this rude of service. The food however was excellent. And our server, Michelle was great and very attentive.

Excellent night to celebrate by boys birthday. Even the menu mentioned a birthday event. Wines and
drinks were very good. The entrees we excellent. The service from Laura was outstanding. I had brought a cake from Backers, since it is my sons favorite, and Laura brought it out at the end with candles lit. Perfect way to celebrate.

Very attentive and accommodating service. Excellent seafood that was sharable. Deserts had delicate flavors, and not huge. Will come again.

Bobbi, our server could not have been any more unaccommodating, dismissive, and uninterested in serving our table. In mentioning the celebration, she responded with demanding our id’s for the wine we ordered. No acknowledgement or a simple verbal validation of what was a great accomplishment of our mentee. Throughout the meal, she refilled the water glass of only one of the guests of our party despite the obvious empty glasses of everyone else. We observed multiple eye rolls and luckily were able to laugh it off as her issue - otherwise this alone could have ruined our meal. This level of service would not be acceptable on any level of management, corporate, investors, etc. in service industry heavy cities. In observing the staff, it is obvious that there is a lack of guidance and modeling of hospitality and service from the leadership. The food runner was the only pleasant encounter we experience here.

The food was fine. The crab cakes were smelly and poorly seasoned. The dip appetizer was the best part of our meal. I will be reporting back to industry representatives who recommended this to me so that they will stop referring others to this restaurant. Wine was ok.

The quality of the food does not match the price. Three of us each got a fish dish; halibut, fish sandwich and fish & chips. The halibut was pretty flavorless and the fish sandwich was dry. The fish and chips were ok but nothing special for what you pay.

Once again, the experience at Current makes me want to return soon. The fish stew is my favorite dish and I have to stop ordering it so I can enjoy other delicious dishes like the branzino. I have always found that the wine selection is very complimentary of the dishes offered and at a reasonable price. Service was excellent and our waiter was attentive without being overbearing. We were having dinner with friends and the experience was delightful.

I normally steer clear of seafood restaurants, but I must recommend Current. My scallops were cooked to perfection. Everyone else in my party had amazing meals from the salmon to the fish and chips. The price point is reasonable for what you get.

It was my father's 75th b-day. I let them know at reservation at OpenTable and they printed their menu with "Happy 75th Birthday" on it which was so special. The octopus and oysters were outstanding for appetizers. I had the seafood stew which was out of this world! The prix fixe menu of clam chowder, prime rib, and chocolate cake was well worth the money. Thanks, Current Fish & Oyster, for being in Salt Lake.

Ryan was easily the best server we have had in a really long time. His knowledge and attentiveness made our anniversary one of the best. Alexandria also made our experience so good. We have spent our last 3 anniversaries at Current. The food is always amazing and Ryan made the whole experience that much better. If you know what’s right, sit in Ryan’s section and get the fish stew.

It was perfect! We went there for my birthday and they had My name on the menu. Nice touch! Food was top notch. Clams and clam dip where fresh and delicious. The salmon and shrimp and grits were the top entrees and the affogato was delectable! Thanks for an unforgettable night!

The restaurant is well staffed, conveniently located, and the quality of the food makes it a destination location. Each staff member that stopped at our table treated us as if they were the restaurant owner. Details not only matter, but they make a difference.......the difference. Current Fish and Oyster house is an easy choice. Go

We took out of town guests to Current for dinner and were disappointed. The restaurant is too noisy for dinner conversation, the fish was fresh but not particularly flavorful, and the seafood Cobb salad was 99% lettuce with scant seafood. I want Current to be great, but it is not.

The food, service, and ambience were all fantastic. The services provided by the professional management and staff are the main reasons that we keep coming back. The old world elegance is a rare thing, and we value their focus to make sure that everything about the dining experience is excellent. Kumamoto oysters were fantastic and the grilled calamari steak is not to be missed. Alexandria made the perfect recommendation. I highly recomend this restaurant.
