I went into Currents with a positive mindset, but that was quickly diminished by the measly menu items and the poor quality of the food. The only entree on the menu was the Italian Sub, so that was what my boyfriend and I ordered. I could buy a sandwich from Subway or Safeway for far less and it would taste better than the stale bread they used.
Standard, no frills hotel fare. Decent food. Staff were very nice.
Quick service, fantastic outdoor ambiance, solid food, good cocktails
Beautiful location by the river, nice outdoor dining. The service was pretty slow and they forgot to bring our drink orders until well after our meals came out. But overall nice experience.
Short staffed. Significant delay after reservation time. The chicken needed seasoning. Great location.
Service was great but food way below average. We chose it primarily for the location with outside seating along the River. They were not allowing outside dining. They did give us a nice quiet table next to window and staff were very nice. But food was really disappointing particularly as it was rather expensive. We don’t at all mind paying for a nice meal but this was not. I do not recommend for dinner.
Food was good and staff was friendly. Little bit of a wait but they were busy.
Always love this place. We come a couple times a month and great every time.
VERY GOOD FOOD AND AMBIANCE, WILL RETURN FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS
Currents is a lovely place for breakfast. Quiet with patio by the river or inside seating with floor to ceiling windows looking onto the patio and canyon.
Very friendly and helpful staff.
Very pretty location. Brunch food was excellent. Service was friendly , competent, but a little slow. ( they warned us they were short handed)
Our reservation was at 9:45am for breakfast. There were only a few other guests in the restaurant. We waited 45minutes before the server ever brought out drinks. Once she brought the coffee there was no sugar. I had to go inside to the bar to retrieve it because she never came back out to our table. I stood at the bar for 10 minutes before the bartender ever even made eye contact but she saw me standing and waiting. The bar wasn’t busy at all. It was 10:30am. She was “ busy” wiping off the counters and avoided coming over. Another employee saw me waiting and asked me what I needed (the sugar). We waited a total of 1hr a nd 15 min for our food. The bacon was soggy and the rest was just okay. Very overpriced for the lack of service and quality of food. But the view of the river is 5 stars!!
Joey was great! More support staff would help him a lot.
Food was delicious!
Cocktails: please upgrade your bar to more high end vermouths and cherries like - Carpano Antiqua vermouth & Luxardo cherries for example.
Please train all serve staff to know the names of the meats and cheeses placed on the charcuterie board. Also knowing WHY those were chosen would enhance the moment. Consider selecting the offerings based on the cocktails/wines chosen to drink with the meal.
Loudness: very loud with the scrabble games going on. Consider ending games by dinner time.
Wonderful service! Great food. We had the wedge salad and Idaho trout; both were excellent. We would definitely order again.
We sat in the dining room indoors. The floor under our table was filthy and sticky.
There were flies buzzing our table and when we asked for something to swat them with, it was like deer in the head light. Paying $55 for a steak in a diner atmosphere
was very disappointing at best. Probably won't go there again.
Incredible view of the river, funny waiter, great food. What more could you ask for?
We enjoy the atmosphere at Currents, in particular sitting on the deck alongside the Deschutes River.
Great service and locally sourced food made for a great meal
We had the veggie pizza and the blue cheese appetizer which was amazing.
Food was okay. Started out with
Great restaurant with a lovely outdoor patio space that is pet friendly. Cool indoor bar setting too.
A beautiful setting on the river. We seated promptly. Friendly staff and excellent food.
We love River house and the view is great
Our server was wonderful: friendly and attentive to all our needs. The Currents Breakfast was really good. The ham was amazing!! Bacon was great too. Was so excited to get a biscuit as a bread option with the breakfast and it didn't disappoint. The breakfast potatoes were great too.
The food what decent. I had a $42 filet and would rank it a 4 out of 10.
Food, service and ambiance! Went for breakfast and dinner. Our server Joey was attentive. The corned beef and hash was wonderful snd the polenta blue cheese cake changed my life!
I ordered the fried chicken dish- lacked seasoning and chicken which had been obvious deep fried had a weird crunchy texture. Mashed potatoes had no flavor
The food was mediocre but the setting along the river is magical.
Waited over an hour for food. Waitress never offered anything and we finally asked for some bread
My family and I absolutely loved it! Not only was the food great, but the guitarist and singer was also great. He played great songs we knew.
Very cool spot. Food was decent.
Craft cocktails at bar were outstanding. It was the first night for Rose as bartender, she is going to be a superstar. Dinner on patio was perfect.
Delicious food. We had the filet and it was the best I’ve eaten in a long time. Sat outside. Beautiful view of the river.
Restaurant didn’t have glasses available as they had been allotted for an event. Kitchen shut down early at 8:30. No desert options. Expected more for the price.
Sat outside by the river- gorgeous setting. Service was good. Menu was not extensive but there was something for everyone. We were informed they were out of a few appetizers, but they did have a great steak special that 4 out of the 5 of us got. Love being able to make reservations for an outdoor table, as one of us is immunocompromised and another is a child who is not old enough to be vaccinated so peace of mind was wonderful.
Currents has a lovely venue, but the food doesn't inspire. We had truffle fries- which were very good. The caesar salad was skimpy and not well presented, although it tasted fine. My husband's salmon was tasty, but again, presentation was not particularly good. If you are going to have a huge plate for serving the dinner on, at least plate it in an attractive manner. As it was, it just looked skimpy and kind of dumped on the plate. His wine was good. The brownie was tasty and presented attractively. I would say that the restaurant has the opportunity to really shine, but needs a higher standard from the kitchen.
Make a reservation. Like a lot of places they are short-staffed and I got the impression they are spreading out the reservations to minimize the service times. We experienced nothing but good there. (But the reservationless woman ahead of me in line was very unhappy -- and rude to the hostess -- that it would be an hour for a table.) The menu is small -- but big enough. And yes you want to sit outside by the river. It's super shady (in a good way. :-)
Slow service , not even a water for 20 minutes !
They ran out of many entrees but great view !
We love dining at Currents and sitting on the deck along the river... great Bend experience. The food is usually really good, the wait staff attentive and friendly. I think Currents is experiencing what so many restaurants are - not enough staff - so the only down side was the wait time for food to be served.
