    Our special dinner was for our anniversary and the entire evening was excellent. Our waiter, Scott, was attentive and helpful without being intrusive. The food and cocktails were excellent -- my wife had trout and I had the seared scallops. We were in a bit of a corner without a view of the rest of the restaurant, but the ambiance appeared to be lovely. We will definitely be going back soon.

    The service was great. The appetizers great. My dinner was OK. The dinners we all had weren’t bad but nothing to write home about. I would still go back just for the shrimp toast appetizer… amazing!

    Food was Awesome. Our server was new to the job and not quite on point but was pleasant. The atmosphere was ok but the decor felt 60’s dated. If you want a great meal these guys can cook just don’t expect a place that makes you feel like “ I can’t wait to come back”.

    We started with fried oysters and shrimp and lobster spring rolls. Although delicious the oyster were very small with lots of crust. I ordered the crusted trout with green beans and a magnificent artichoke remoulade. My friend had the diver scallops which she said were perfectly cooked and outstandingly delicious. The chocolate silk pie was decadent and their coffee selection perfect. Our server Jade was absolutely wonderful, attentive and accommodating. Not just dinner it was an amazing experience.

    This is expected to be a finer dining choice in Greensboro. Certain dishes were rather pedestrian and didn’t create a sense of artistry that would separate this place from others. This begins with the bits of bread given while we waited for our drinks. I’m not asking for large pieces of bread, Esther

    The service was good, everyone was friendly and helpful. The food however, was not great. In their attempts to elevate the dishes, too many things were added and the dishes became overwrought with too many flavors fighting for attention.

    We were seated next to the kitchen. My husband has trouble hearing so the added noise made conversion difficult. We were on a schedule to go to the show after dinner, so we accepted it and decided to forgo dessert and after dinner cocktails.

    I love this place. Great Food and Fab staff ..Just a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a fabulous meal..and more recently I am with "The Ladies' Who Lunch" and I mean that in a good way. I really love that the mixologist can deliver any cocktail! as I had a "Stinger" recently and THEY HAD CLEAR Creme De Menthe! YAY YOU! Plus Joyce family farms chicken makes me feel just "Right at Home," as I only eat Poulet Rouge chickens at home. Great bread and salads. Shrimp and grits..and the crab cake ..BUT when I think "BEST Burge" ..it is UNDERCURRENT with cheese and med rare. TY!

    The food, as always, was wonderful. My husband had the trout and said it was the best he had had. The ribeye was also a delight, though it was quite a challenge to find many green beans. Starting the evening with a specialty cocktail is always fun too.

    our second visit to the Undercurrent in two years continued our evaluation of a restaurant with exceptional food, service and atmosphere. Food selection is varied and inviting without pretentious descriptions. Service is friendly, attentive and not overly hovering. The wine list is very comprehensive with reasonable and attractively prices choices. The noise level is very difficult for anyone with a mild to moderate hearing impairment, but it did not seem to bother the younger crowd. This is not a quiet intimate dining experience , but the energy and quality are first rate.

We really hit the jackpot with Undercurrent. Amazingly delicious food full of unique flavours. High class services and wonderful ambiance. 100% recommend and can’t wait to visit this place again

    This has been our go to restaurant over many decades and multiple owners. The food is consistently very good to wonderful. Service is almost always very good. I don't usually call out a server by name, but last night Scott was our waiter. He was very attentive, skilled and helpful without being the least bit overbearing. Thank you Undercurrent for another wonderful evening!

    We have had dinner there and it was very good, but the brunch was not good, poached eggs were over cooked and cold, the grits were cold and fried chicken biscuit was tough and over fried. Sorry to say but we will not be back for brunch. The server was very nice and the drinks were good but the food not good at all.

    Has been a long time since we have went to Greensboro for dinner. This is a 35 minute drive for us. We have had exceptional meals there before and last night was the same high quality meal. Highly recommend Undercurrent. Staff was very courteous and helpful. We had an appetizer and a drink at the bar and we had dinner at a table with a glass of wine. The cost was very reasonable. All the food was outstanding.

    Main courses - rack of lamb and duck were excellent. Collars were some of the best I have eaten. Wait staff was attentive but did not force the evening. Had a very relaxing evening. Biggest disappointment were cocktails - very limited choices for rye Manhattan and Cosmo was blah, no taste of lime at all,
