We had an amazing evening! From the opening martini to the closing dessert, each course was incredible! We also had great service from Ben - he's a gem! We look forward to coming back. Our recommendations: lemon lavender martini. Lobster springroll, salmon entree, bread pudding, opera cake

Undercurrent is a great restaurant. The food, drinks, and dessert were great along with the service. I recommend the lamb chops if they have them.

Reached there at 8:20 pm and was greeted with 'The kitchen closes at 9 pm'. Service was very poor and was rushing to get the order. Asked for the plasticware and got them with a judgment. The food came so fast and was very cold. Anyways, ate the food just to realize the chicken was PINK. Asked the waiter who tries to justify it with the color of marination but realizes that it was raw. At least they did not charge anything but was terrible service and experience on a date night. Never going back again! Not recommended to anyone

Really enjoyed an early valentines dinner here. We had not eaten at undercurrent in a while and it was just as outstanding as we remembered. Salmon and pork tenderloin were both excellent but the lobster bisque my wife had stole the show.

I came to Undercurrent to celebrate my birthday with an out of town guest. The setting was perfect for a budding romance between two old folks. Our server, Mackenzie, was extra special, as we asked her to sing "Happy Birthday" for both our birthdays. She warned us it wouldn't be perfect, but she gave it her all, adding to our happiness. And by the way, Mackenzie, it was awesome. Particularly awesome, were your little dance moves.
The entire experience will live in my memory forever. And although Undercurrent had nothing to do with the last part, as we left, it started to snow. Romance was truly in the air, and Undercurrent was a huge part of it. Thank you.

If you are in the "high risk" category for this pandemic or just feel outdoor dining is what you prefer, The Undercurrent has the perfect outdoor patio garden fitted with heater & sail canopies. (Socially Distant indoor dining is also available). The food is absolutely phenomenal and the service provided by the Staff is exceptional. Wes and his talented Staff have raised the bar in creativity when it comes to providing their guests with exceptional dining experiences on site & virtual. If you are looking for an experience that doesn't leave you feeling like your being cheating by the world we are currently living in.... The Undercurrent will not disappoint.

This was a one time visit to Greensboro, The restaurant was very nice and the waitress and host stand very friendly. My specialty cocktail was a weak pour, I thought. I had checked out the menu before I visited and there were lots of things I liked the sound of. We ordered a fried oyster app and it was very good, cooked just right. I decided to get the special, Pheasant confit for my dinner and it was very salty. So much so that I drank 3 glasses of water before I left the restaurant. My friend had the chicken dish from the main menu and she liked her dish but said it wasn't anything spectacular. The complimentary bread was excellent and came with both butter and olive oil.

Bottom line, if I was in the area again, I would probably try another spot. If I lived there, I would give them another chance. The restaurant was busy so I know they must have a good following. I would recommend with an asterisk.

We were promptly and courteously greeted and sat for our reservation. The setting was well-lit and nicely appointed. The server was polite and professional the entire evening with all details attended to. The menu had a variety of choices along with some chef's specials. The only thing that was slightly odd was that both specials were seafood based, and would have liked another option. My wife ended up going with the duck and I with the steak. Both were cooked as desired and the sides and sauces were paired nicely. The pre-entree salads were sizable and refreshing. Great experience all around and would highly recommend.
