Our server was not very attentive. We had to ask another server to get him 3 times. At the end of the meal, we said we wanted to check out and very snarky, he said he had dropped the bill along time ago. I told him he failed to take to pick up our credit card. His approach and disappearing act, spoiled out meal. The other staff members were very nice though.

Another great dinner with friends at one of our go-to spots. This is the best outdoor dining in Bend. Service is great on a Sunday for Brunch or on a Saturday for dinner. Happy Hour at the bar is also great. Our food was yummy to include the calamari appetizer. We love Currents!!!

We were a party of 10 celebrating 2 birthdays and a mutual visiting friend. The waiter was very attentive to our needs although the food service was somewhat slow (not his fault). I had the boullibase which was somewhat mediocre...no wow factor. The broth was warm but not hot. They provided a number of desserts at no cost to us....very unexpected and very nice. We actually had a lovely time together and would definitely go back.

Perfect for any occasion. We went in the summer so dining by the river was just amazing. They have outdoor heating units and a large gas fire, so having a glass of wine and an appetizer outside in the winter would also be delightful. Food was great, service was very friendly and prompt. The outside is even dog friendly!

In visiting Bend over the past 4 years and eating at dozens of restaurants, this place was among the worst. Service was abysmal. They lost our appetizer order, then apologized, then when appetizers came, my wife’s entree appeared as we started our appetizers. My “Wedge” was totally unstructured, just some lettuce leaves thrown on the plate with tomatoes and bacon bits. They did not charge us for the entrees and that was the best thing that happened the entire evening.

My friend and I recently enjoyed a terrific breakfast at Currents. We were greeted by a friendly host, seated right away at a corner table with a perfect view of the Deschutes. Our server was attentive, timely and professional throughout the entire meal. The food was perfect. I enjoyed a light breakfast of fresh Greek yoghurt with housemade granola and my friend had the Corned Beef Hash. With 2 perfectly poached eggs atop a generous plate of corned beef and sauteed veggies, my friend texted me later to say that his meal was, "Excellent!"

We arrived 5 minutes late for our reservations, because we got lost and they would not sit us for dinner. They said last sitting was at 845. It was 850pm! But there was a open table reservation available at 9. Weird. They wanted me to sit in the lounge with my 2 children. We left and ate somewhere else. Won’t be back!

Had a very nice dinner. Service was attentive and food was good. Had a very nice view from the patio but it was very hot the evening we were there and decided to eat inside. Would happily return on a nice evening for a drink and a light bite when we could sit on the patio

Loved the quiet, riverside and outside seating. The Halibut and Tuna were seasoned perfectly and delicious! The wait staff was very friendly and personable with great recommendations. This is definitely in my top 10 date night restaurants

The Filet Mignon that we ordered, at least for me, was the best that I have ever eaten. The restaurant was quite busy so the staff were strained, but we were well served understanding her situation. The temperature outside was in the low 90's; so, we opted for inside. However, in the morning, we had breakfast there. We did not stay in the hotel connected with Currents. We sat outside enjoying the sounds of the Descheutes River while eating another outstanding meal. I highly recommend this restaurant. I give it 6 Stars. If we are in the area again sometime, we will definitely eat there again. Great value for Great Food.

This is probably the best restaurant in central Oregon for a total high quality dining experience. The view and sound of the river right next to us, the quality of the food and service made the evening very special. The best way to celebrate our 50th anniversary.

This place has Horrible service! They sat us in a corner by a window which was very nice but then completely forgot about us! Finally I got up & went to the bar where I tried to eat an incredibly sweet French onion soup. The hostess told us the manager would come over & comp our drinks but he never showed up & our drinks were never comped. No apologies, nothing. Definitely will NOT go there again...

We had breakfast on a Monday morning. The menu offerings were extensive and mouth-watering. The blueberry pancakes were delicious as was the Belgium waffle. Our waiter was Colin, and the service was outstanding--attentive, friendly, and prompt. Our table overlooked the patio and the river, so that was a nice bonus.

We enjoyed brunch at Currents for Father's Day. Our server was prompt and attentive. Our breakfast meals were all exceptional. We enjoyed the view of the river from our table. Would have sat outside but it was a bit too cold. Will be back again soon!!! This is our new favorite neighborhood gem....for breakfast, lunch, dinner and happy hour!!

We had four different entrees in our group and all of them were just mediocre. The kitchen got our steaks cooking instructions mixed up so by the time we got our food back the meal was pretty much over. Nice place and the waiter was nice although not as attentive as he should have been. Not the special occasion we'd hoped for.

The service was terrible.
The server missed appetizer, took sooooo long to bring drinks( over 20 mins) food (over an hour). We asked for the bill and it took him over 15 mins to bring the bill.
The food was warm and not hot.
The worst service I had in Oregon!!

The food was good, but we were disappointed that they were out of rabbit. Dining outdoors was lovely. Our waiter left much to be desired. He was not attentive, brought salads and main courses all at the same time. He did not come back to see if we wanted more drinks and forgot to bring water and soft drink that were requested. We observed him chatting at another table for a lengthy period of time.

Seated by hostess quickly but not in a premier location. Luckily for us she was close by and could relay our messages to waiter and management. We ordered quickly and had to after 15 minutes ask for bread. They brought out four tiny slices of cold bread, Yuk. We asked the hostess to try and get us more bread and eventualy she was able to bring out a normal portion of hot tasty bread and butter. One in my party had Halibut and it was excellent. I had the expensive ribeye steak. I ordered it medium and was told this was pink and juicy inside. It was brought to table by a food runner and our waiter never checked on us. The steak was medium well and tough as leather. Finally we asked the hostess to get waiter and he ordered another steak. This time medium rare. This time it was sent out raw. Basically uncooked inside. I could not eat this. My friend also ordered a glass of wine and after 20 minutes of waiting walked to bar to get it for himself. Service by wait staff was terrible. Hostess was sweet and excellent and she got the biggest tip. The manager seemed to try and solve issues but the waiter kept saying everyone else raves about our food. Implying What's wrong with you???

We were bringing friends to dine for lunch. We wanted to treat them to waterfront dining, a great view, and good food. Sadly, the hostess was very rude and curt with us. It was not a welcoming experience. After she seated us, we commented among ourselves how rude and unkind she was. I believe she may have overheard us, because she changed her behavior and service to us quite abruptly, being cheerful and trying to be helpful. On a better note, our server was excellent. I believe his name was Colin. He was so warm and welcoming, very professional and attentive, and made our lunch a very pleasant experience after the rocky start.

I was completely underwhelmed. I had reservations for 4 at 1pm for Mother's Day. We arrived just before 1pm and it took 20 mins just to get water. Then to receive our coffee and appetizers another 40 minutes. The wait staff was very courteous and polite... But when we finally received our food, the only meal that met the standard was the brunch burger, it was excellent. My mother sent back her Eggs Benedict twice for being too runny and tasting metallic. My grandmother politely ate what she could, but when I asked her how it was, she said she didn't like it. My omelet was cold and had bits of shell (egg) and other membrane type substance from the crab shell. The potatoes were very good and we shared them at the table to satiate our appetites. The staff was gracious enough to remove one entree, but at $111.00 (which would've been more) I feel that I should've had a wonderful Mother's Day meal and experience for the mothers in my life. The women's restroom was dirty and the soap dispenser was empty and dismantled, as well as the paper products were empty. Overall, the portions, quality and speed of service was not what I would expect from a renowned establishment such as the Riverhouse. At this point my family and I will not return to the Currents or any other Riverhouse establishment.

It was a busy Mothers day breakfast and we were not in a hurry, but the service was not great. She seems to be taking care of people on the deck as well as inside. We waited a long time and never got the the things we asked for. The food was above average and that was appreciated. All in all it was good, we did not have to wait for our food to arrive, but not refills on beverages. Will go back as the new design is really lovely. I found the chairs were low and so the table was high for me and was surprised at how noisy it was with not a lot of people in the room so early in the day. We wished we had requested the deck, as that was sunny and nice view.

We had mother's day brunch, good was good. Our waitress was very nice but in general the service was very poor. Very slow, left us sitting,at our table over 20 minutes without taking a drink order, again took almost 20 minutes to get our bill. Probably won't go back to the restaurant. The bar was great.
