Was great they printed my name on the menus for my birthday. However the service is a lot slower then I would have expected for a dinner this price. The place seemed like they needed 10 more servers. Was great but I would not go if you are in a rush.

It is always a treat to dine in at Current. The wait staff helpful, friendly and Ryan makes sure the night is special and Aaron suggested a wonderful wine. We started with the octopus, the best I've had and the rest of the meal was spot on.

The food and drinks were fabulous. Customer service from hostesses is really not friendly. The mask mandate can be enforced in a kind hearted and fun way instead of being grumpy and punitive. Other than that the experience was amazing!

Wonderful dining experience. The hostess took our temperature at the door, tables are well spaced out and staff seem to be taking the mask wearing seriously. All these things made our time there feel very safe. The food was off the charts!

We arrived as a party of five (family). The menu was limited. I had the salmon, funeral potatoes and spaghetti squash. Nothing was over the top. My husband and I are both in the medical field and it was somewhat strange seeing the waitresses wearing gloves the entire time we were there. They would go to one table to the next with the same gloves. I would feel more comfortable if they would just wash their hands. A personal preference on my end. I was wanting a gray goose cosmo and they only had two types of lower end vodka. I chose to stick with water.

My second time at Current. I think it is one of the best places I have been to in a very long time. COVID has left us dying to go out, socialize, have some good drinks, good food and to be with family and friends. Your staff are very conscious of this now and it is much appreciated. I will be back!!

We had the seafood tower and the crab and lobster were pretty flavorless, certainly not the buttery, sweetness I was anticipating. The oysters and shrimp were very nice. The waitress was very attentive and prompt, but was wearing an over abundance of patchouli or something similar.

In short the dining experience started out fine and progressively became dissapointing.

Service: Server was fine, not very attentive but it was sufficient until after our second course when we really didn't see her at all. Including the almost 40 minutes between our salads and main course. She checked in once after the main course arrived at which point we were unhappy with the food and ready to leave (over 2 hours into our dining experience).

Food: All appetizers were good. The seafood tower was not the most fresh but decent. Smoked salmon and burrata were delicious as was house made bread and we would absolutely recommend all three. Salads were good. Clam chowder was fine. For the mains, the beef short rib lacked flavor and was overcooked, the shrimp and grits (grits particularly) lacked flavor. The glazed salmon was good.

We had cancelled a reservation for another restaurant because the menu looked delicious and the reviews were high but unfortunately this just didn't hit the mark and we were disappointed in our experience.

I think if they focused on quality and service it could be amazing however after our experience we won't be back or recommend. There are plenty of other places to try.

Horrible service - the staff was extremely rude and unaccommodating to dietary restrictions and could not wait to kick out my guest and I. Management kept staring at our table and made offhanded comments while checking in on our table. After spending 95$ on a meal they asked us to either order more or leave after being there for 1.5 hrs.. the food was also mediocre. Won’t be coming back.

We are never over disappointed when we dine at Current. We love the cocktails and the wedge salad that is more than generous to share. Tonight we had the grilled octopus which was beautifully presented and delicious. Recently they changed the chicken and it was out of this world. And as usual, the service was impeccable.
