Another outstanding meal at the Undercurrent! The ribeye and salmon or cooked perfectly and the cheese plate and desserts, plural, were fantastic. The blueberry bread pudding is a perennial favorite. Thank you so much for the wonderful service and a memorable evening.

Wine selection was very good. Atmosphere was good and the noise level was fine.
The ribeye at $33.00 was really bad. Overcooked and tasteless. Also, the salmon was overcooked.. Bread was good. So disappointed overall and probably will not return.

Nice ambience and interesting menu items. The plates seemed a little on the small side. Sadly the scallops main item was not that good.
Nice wine selection.
Very nice staff.

Excellent food and service. Very prompt in delivery with all professional acumen.
Parking is less-than-desirable. Yes, it is a "downtown" restaurant", but parking can be quite a hassle without the correct change or appropriate parking app downloaded. Because of this, I would consider revisiting the restaurant as an evening meal only.

Decided we wanted salads & appetizers before a show at Tanger. Food was exceptionally delicious, server was lovely, service was efficient. And the location can’t be beat. Plan to eat at Undervurrent before every show!

This is one of the finest restaurants in Greensboro. We had dinner there before a show at the Tanger Center. The glazed salmon was fantastic and the charcuterie plate as an appetizer along with fried oysters was superb. Excellent beer and wine list. The service was great and the ambience was very relaxed. It’s a couple of blocks from the Tanger center.

We have been to the Undercurrent many times over the years, which included two locations and about four ownership changes. There is always a concern that things will slip when changes occur and especially with all of the recent Covid-related challenges. However, the meals we had were absolutely wonderful! I had the Herb de Provence Roast Rack of Lamb* with Multigrain Pilaf, Roasted Tomato-Kale Sauté, Bordelaise, Pickled Fennel and my wife had a Flounder special. We then enjoyed the wonderful Bread Pudding desert. Everything was done to perfection and the service was excellent.

I can’t say enough great things about the staff at Undercurrent. My wife and I had a 6:15 reservation this past Friday night. We were traveling from Raleigh and encountered an accident in Durham on our way and arrived at 6:50. They kindly held our table and we still had time to enjoy our meal and make a concert at 8 that evening. Our waiter was very attentive and the service was outstanding. We’ve eaten at Undercurrent a few times before and the food remains at a consistently high level. My wife had the scallops while I had the trout. Both were delicious and the white chocolate blueberry bread pudding we shared for dessert was amazing. Can’t wait to return soon!

Since I’m traveling alone for work, I sat at the bar and enjoyed the company of the manager. She was fantastic and made me the best dirty martini I’ve ever had! The entire staff was super friendly and chatted with me when they passed by. I had the scallops and let me tell you… GET THE SCALLOPS! Best I’ve ever had! The carrot and ginger soup was perfect for a chilly fall night. Slightly spicy but so so good. I will definitely make this a regular place that I come eat!

At first glance, it seems like the offerings are fairly “standard”. When you look a little closer, it’s all with a twist or two.
It’s different, and so, so delicious…
Highly recommended.

I had the trout and my friend had the scallops. Both dishes were beautifully presented and the food tasted amazing. For dessert we enjoyed the bread pudding which was equally delicious. The staff were all friendly, attentive, and made the experience truly wonderful.

Highly recommend this restaurant. My wife and I cook very well for our selves at home so we only go out when a menu really catches our attention. I had the beef confit Empanadas Appetizer. perfectly fried crispy outside and tender inside. The roasted tomato salsa was a great complement to the empanada and the slaw was very good on it's own. My wife had the cheese plate and was equally pleased.
My Entrees was the spice rubbed duck. perfectly cooked medium rare as requested above and beyond expectation. My wife had the seared sea scallops perfectly seared with just the right amount of caramelization. desserts where the raspberry Charlotte and the blueberry bread pudding. Both very good. We will be back to try Sunday brunch soon. Thank you. Peter G. in Summerfield.

The food was excellent as usual. The baby spinach salad with salmon was just perfect. Salmon was cooked exactly the way I asked for it. My wife Katie had the shrimp and grits and loved it. Nikki our server was so pleasant, efficient, and helpful. She kept the coffee fresh and hot all the time.

Great food and service, honestly one of the best in Greensboro. And they’re right up the road from the Tanger Performing Arts Center, so it’s perfectly located in downtown. Will definitely be back, and highly recommend.
