    Nice location. Fairly quiet. Apps were so-so but the entrees were great. Smoked salmon pasta and the other was Cajun chicken pasta. Both were excellent. Would return.

    We had an amazing dinner, great service and the food was delicious. The manager or owner greeted us at the door and was so kind and welcoming, and set such a great tone for the meal. Our hostess was super nice, our waiter was great and the food was awesome. We had the prime rib from the pri fixe menu and it was incredible. We will be back for regular date nights!!

    The fondue was excellent - the meat cooked just to our liking . The steelhead was delicious as well as the corn ensemble with it. My husband said his halibut didn’t seem fresh and he would not order it again but the mashed potatoes were very good. They were very attentive to our dog and brought out a dog water right away and made him a complimentary chicken breast. He was very well behaved.

    We were seated at a table with an extremely visible dirty tablecloth. Our entrees, except for the piece of steelhead, were cold. The Cajun turkey had zero Cajun spice. Only one of the desserts, which took a very long time to arrive, was good. The bill also took a very long time to be delivered.

    The food would be 5 star but the crostini was dry & the cranberry sauce had too much cloves & too tart & needed more sugar. Otherwise everything was delicious! I love coming here!

    we have gone to Currents for the holiday dinner for several years now and enjoyed ourselves but the one thing about past dinners was how we were rushed through our dinner one time the server actually took my salad before i was done to make room for the main course - this year was much better - instead of being in and out in less than an hour the dinner pace had slowed down - plenty of time between courses and just overall much more relaxing - never felt like we were rushed - the service was great as was the food- i ordered the turkey breast plate and it was well prepared and delicious- if i had one thing to comment on - i just missed the stuffing that just always goes with the turkey(i guess i'm just a traditionalist)! otherwise just a very nice way to spend the holiday!!!

    The Currents' staff combined an array of delicious and intriguing food in highly efficient servings that avoided any guest anguish about a overly busy or slammed kitchen. Our server was very friendly and took care of a minor add-on to our meals. Bravo.

    Disappointed again, we are locals and try to visit 2-3 times per month but while the service is good the food is not. Last visit both the coffee and the eggs were cold after waiting for 40 minutes after ordering We will not be back until we feel they have made changes to improve.

    Went for breakfast and food was very good as usual. Service was running slow, possibly due to staff shortage or training? It took 30 minutes to get the drinks we ordered. Otherwise, it’s a nice setting with the river running by outside the glass doors/windows.

    The food was fine, nothing to write home about. Service was so bad! It was beyond slow! Once we received our food we never saw our server until I had to go hunt him down for the check. Not a single plate was bussed off of our table prior to us leaving. No refills were offered on coffee, we had to go find him for that as well. Menus weren't picked up after the order was taken. It was just basic service steps that just weren't happening. I finally went up to go get a manager to have her run my credit card so I can get to work and instead of just taking care of it like a manager should, she goes oh let me find your server and then just followed me back to the table. It was a very strange experience. I used to love going to Currents but I probably won't go there again unless it's just for a drink.

    The first night we started with the steak bites and then had the steelhead and the lamb. They were all wonderful, entrees were mostly $38-45. The second night we decided to try the ribeye for $63 since rhe steak bites were so good. It was very difficult to cut, and even harder to chew. The bites we were able to cut were a little too spicy. I dont think it was presented as spicy on the menu.

    Server was great and the atmosphere was too. Ordered chicken for $37 at the suggestion of the server and it was horrible. I was too tired to send it back but I can tell you that it was not freshly cooked and must have been yesterdays or the day before leftovers.

    I’m being very generous with this review because I know they are understaffed and this is a huge issue everywhere in Bend right now. It was a rough dining experience, slow (like 50 mins to get food). Dead fly in a to go cup of ice we asked for, no glasses for ice tea so our teas were served in small juice glass. Manager came over and apologized and said she would reduce the bill, but it wasn’t. This place is normally decent, just be aware if you go in that you have plenty of time and patience as they work through this hard time.
