I thought the ambiance was really nice, beautiful place. Service was excellent. The food was good, but portion size small, value not great.

Great food, great atmosphere, great staff. Everyone is super friendly and service is amazing and you aren’t rushed to eat faster. Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Salt Lake.

This is a great restaurant but a little too intense when it comes to making sure you are not a no-show on your reservation: First I get a text the day before to confirm I'm still coming which is like, ok fine... Then the day of, I get an actual call on my phone. That to my mind is one bridge too far: First I just confirmed the day before, second if you have to harass me over the phone at least limit yourself to texts. Then during that call, I am asked if I still want a patio table as per my reservation to which I answer yes and am then told that there is a limit on how long I can have dinner at a patio table. At that point, I just don't feel like going anymore. I still did show up and dinner was great. My review would be a 5 star if Current put in as much effort at making you feel welcome as it does in making sure you're not a no-show...

We went here for my wife's 50th birthday and it was fantastic. We love seafood but most seafood in Salt Lake City is just prepared as is and put on a plate with a potato and some broccoli (see Market Street Grill). Current does seafood in composed dishes with flavor and creativity. The plating is also spectacular and the overall ambience was awesome. They even printed out birthday menus for us! I will definitely be back!

I order a 1/2 tower of sea food and it wasn't bad at all but what my wife ordered for mother's day was way to salty and she did not enjoy the food. It was cool outside for them to have the fire pit on but colder inside with the AC on. Metal chair and metal table does not make it better.

The food at this establishment is unbelievably delicious. The kitchen can prepare many of the dishes gluten free. Our server was attentive and very helpful. However, she kept referring to my partner and I as "ladies". Personally, I present as masculine and identify as non-binary (my preferred pronouns are they/them). Rather than assuming a specific gender, it would have felt more inclusive if our server referred to us with gender-neutral language, such "people" or "folks". The same thing could be said about servers at many different eateries around Salt Lake City.

We ordered salads. They were ok. Took an hour and thirty minutes to get the food. Service was just really slow. Probably made the experience worse than it was.

Alexandria provided excellent and efficient service. Made great recommendations for us. Food was great!

I’m sure their tables are spaced appropriately but they did feel a little too close for our comfort. However I’m sure this is just re-acclimating to dining out in a post-COVID and vaccinated world.

Current Fish and Oyster is consistently our most favorite restaurant in Salt Lake City. As a starter, the grilled calamari with Jalapeno is exceptional. The grilled cauliflower was an excellent vegetarian main course. The Yuzu Posset dessert is one of the best in ANY restaurant.

We have been here before and so we thought why not try it again. Our server came over to fill our water and spilled some of it on the table (she did this on the table next to us as well). She came back after we ordered and asked what we had ordered (she did the same with all the tables next to us. We constantly had to remind her what we ordered-she forgot the beer and forgot that a fish stew was ordered as well as mussels. With the exception of this the food was good but because she forgot stuff our mussels (appetizer) came out with dinner so the mussels were not as good as the last time

My husband and I have had Current on our list of restaurants to try in SLC and all that either of us could say is that we wished we had gone sooner! The food is fantastic and service wonderful. The octopus starter that was recommended to us by our server and it was truly delicious in addition to the short ribs and scallops, the PEI mussels, and the beet and squash salad. We will certainly be returning soon to try more items on the menu!
