Currents at the Riverhouse
Great resort. Great Food. Great atmosphere
The food and the view were great, but the service was terrible. We waited over an hour for food, never got drink refills, and never got bread.
Great food and views.
Service is a little slow to get seated.
Good staff though
Loved the terrace overlooking the river & the food was very nice, service very good and will definitely be back!
We’ve been here three times. BBQ very dry, slow service, when there’s a problem, manager doesn’t respond. Simply wont ever go back. Terrible.
Rover sounds were great for the ambiance. Food was great loved it.
Waited 45 mins for our food to arrive. When we enquired with the waiter he told us 'in Bend you wait 45 mins for a table, and then 45 mins for an order'. This was rude and dismissive and we should have been told from the start that there would be such a wait in our food in order to manage expectations. I think there was an issue with the kitchen as I overheard another waitress telling someone this. This is fine, but communicate it to your customers. Food was just warm when it arrived but I didnt want to wait any longer . I asked for ketchup and it never arrived. All in I was really disappointed as I had a fantastic meal the evening before at this restaurant. But for brunch I was let down and fully charged. It's a great place with amazing views, but maybe needs to work on communication
Ambience was nice, food was okay at best but service is awful! I wouldn’t go back.
Great find for lunch. Unassumingly located in a hotel lobby, the outside view of the river running by is a beautiful setting. The meals were tasty and well priced.
This was my first visit and we really enjoyed our experience. We live up on the butte and have been wanting to visit for a while. The staff is very polite and helpful. Our food was very good especially the steak that was cooked to perfection. The side vegetables were fresh and not over cooked. The table side bread was fresh and the chicken cooked very well. The location cannot be beat with the river below and the blue skies above. The outside seating was plentiful with several sitting areas for cocktails. We are looking forward to our next meal at Currents.
Right off of a busy street but you wouldn't know it. Upscale casual with a great view of a smaller part of the river. Nice bar area to lounge and enjoy a drink or watch some games. Food is well properly done with good options.
Great food, service and location.
Halibut was overcooked. Seated inside, but our server spent most of his time outside, had to ask another server to get him after not seeing him for almost a half hour.
Good food, nice ambience!
Good vibe, food was about average, and service was above average.
We really enjoyed our experience. We arrived right after a big thundershower, but really wanted to sit in the outdoor area, which overlooks the river. The staff dried a table and set us up quickly. The food was great. The service was attentive. The restaurant, particularly the outdoor area, is really attractive. We’ll come back.
Currents is a nice restaurant right by the Deschutes River. Made a reservation and we were seated right away. After 15 minutes I had to find a server to wait on us. The food was good but the service was horrendous.
Poor waiter service and dry short ribs ruined experience.
We sat outside watching and hearing the rive flow by eating excellently prepared and beautifully prepared food. The service was attentive, but not intrusive.
We went to celebrate our Anniversary with a special dinner. I ordered the Halibut, it was way over salted, and the potato gratin, which was super bland. The presentation was beautiful. My husband did not really enjoy his Fisherman's Stew. He always clears his plate, but didn't this time.
Setting and food was very good, but service in the kitchen was unacceptable.
I have eaten there 4 times in last year. This was first time food was not perfect. My two companions had great meals but my fisherman's stew was fine except for the clams. They were a bit dated. Several did not open at all. A little tummy ache after. I guess I won't order fish next time.
Nice ambiance and decent service but the food was poorly prepared and simply a let down. Combine that with a premium price and I will not return nor will I recommend it to anyone.
We always enjoy our experience at Currents! We always make a point to at least visit the lounge if nothing else.
The outdoor seating with the sound of the river running beside you is a pretty special atmosphere to begin with and the food is top notch as well. The corned beef hash with a side of sourdough toast was a great brunch item and their side of fresh fruit went way beyond the standard melon you would get at a lesser location, with fresh berries and other fresh fruit added to the mix.
I will also say they did a nice job of adjusting to some food allergies in our party, which included gluten, dairy, and garlic, with no sign of being inconvenienced and instead a measure of appropriate care and compassion. We have had great experiences for breakfast, brunch, and dinner.
The reservation was made a few days ahead of time. When I made the reservation I specifically told them it was for a 40th Birthday and for it to be known. Not a mention of it was made or a dessert offered. We ordered Standing Rib Roast. No Au Jus nor Horseradish were offered. Severely disappointed for a special night.

We have enjoyed Currents in the past, but this last visit was a debacle. We had out of town guests visiting & wanted to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Made reservations several days ahead & requested outdoor table. When we arrived on time, the Host apologized and said “someone” just gave away our table. We said we would sit inside but was waaay too noisy due to a 4 piece band (with drums!)playing in restaurant!??? We waited for an outdoor table & when almost ready to go elsewhere they seated us finally. The waiter was pleasant and the food was ok.
Not sure why they asked me if we were celebrating a special occasion when making reservation???
If you want to have happy hour on the patio, make sure in advance that they will serve happy hour at your particular table. And if you request to change tables, expect to be told that the other tables on the patio are all "reserved"...although, oddly enough, those other tables were still vacant when we left 90 minutes later.
On the positive side, our waitress was great and the river ambience was very enjoyable.
Our food arrived 45 minutes after being ordered! Then the pancakes were only slightly warm and very doughy. The Hollandaise Sauce on the Eggs Benedict was very acidic, almost bitter, served on Canadian Bacon which was over cooked and tough to cut or chew. The only redeeming virtue was the lovely setting on the river plus the beautiful day. We will not be branching here another time.
Poor and slow service. Food lukewarm and orders were incorrect.
We live within walking distance of Currents and have breakfast there a few times each week. I have always ordered the Eggs Benedict because I found it to be the best in Bend. However, the last 4 times we’ve eaten there the food quality has deteriorated significantly. The Eggs Benedict is nothing like it was on previous visits. The hollandaise sauce used to be thick and creamy now it’s watery to the point that the English muffin soaks up all of the sauce and it disappears. The potatoes used to be crispy and tasty and now they are soft and mushy. They also serve half the amount of potatoes they used to serve. The ambiance is lovely and the service is good so we always felt it was a good value. Given the deteriorating quality of the food we no longer feel it’s a good value. Now we frequent McKays Cottage instead. Not quite as tasty as Currents used to be but much better than what it has become.
Lovely location for bridal brunch. Liked option of brunch or lunch menu.
It was really good! Great food and great service
Really enjoyed lunch on the patio with the river rushing past. Wonderful!
The food was bland. Almost no flavor at all in savory dishes.
Our server, Anthony was knowledgeable about the food as well as local area
Our meal was prepared to order... awesome filets.
This was our first time at this restaurant. It was an exellent experience. The ambience on the patio next to the river was very calming.
Our food (mac & cheese & flatbread) were both very tasty. The service was friendly and good.
We recommend this spot to anyone.
I had made reaervations in advance of Fathers Day for an outside table with our daughter and 2 grandsons. The hostess, tried to seat us inside twice, told us she was very confused with everything going on....we had to remind our waiter , Adrian, about our grandsons drinks and our daughters drink...both finally came after the meals were served!....
Our server was terrible! We had to ask 3 and 4 times for the same thing - I finally got up and got my own water pitcher for myself after sitting for 30 minutes with NO WATER. We were there for a simple dinner and it took nearly 3 hours. Terribly slow service and our waiter, Adrian, was gabbing away with other tables then walked right by us without even looking or checking in if we needed anything. Asked for cracked pepper, got the salt and pepper table shakers, asked for cocktails, they arrived after our appetizers. I am not impressed and had high hopes for this place with the remodel and the new exec. chef. It is unfortunate that one person can ruin an entire experience for 4 people. Be warned if you go, you will be paying $$$ and get terrible service.
Just average. I used to work in the food service industry in top notch restaurants. We also dine out frequently. We had a 3-4 minute wait at hostess stand... literally no one there (6:30 on a Saturday! ) 2 of 3 meals were nicely cooked. Mine, a medium rare filet, was severely under cooked and cold. Do they NOT have thermometers in the kitchen? Sent it back to get some more heat on it. It came back cooked as asked and not cold... but also on a naked plate. Not a nice touch. We'll look elsewhere next time.
