It's a place that if you are not celebrating something special, the ambiance, service and food make it something special.

My husband and I were visiting Greensboro for the first time. I looked at reviews and decided to try Undercurrents. It was an anniversary and I called ahead and asked for a quiet table and said that we were taking our time. Laura was our server and she was terrific. She provided excellent advice and several winning suggestions. I am very glad that we went and I would love to return

Undercurrent is one of our favorites. We are lucky to have such a great fine dining experience in Greensboro, and our waiter Scott was wonderful. Undercurrent has been consistently a cut above in all areas for as long as we have been going there, probably over 15 years. Looking forward to next time.

Always delectable. Pork chop special was phenomenal. Chicken was too. I wanted to have each of the desserts. If there's one thing I'd change - bread. Don't know when or why they started adding olives, we prefer their original.

It is always a good experience at undercurrent! Please put the wontons and the beef satay back on the appetizer menu… Those were some of the best dishes I’ve had all year! :-)

Having been to Undercurrent several times we decided to try their brunch. I ordered the Cinnamon Bun French Toast and while the flavor was okay it was just dry. Then when I was about finished a lady at the table next to us ordered the same thing.. When it came to their table I realized the whipped cream was left off mine. We did not receive glasses of water and had to ask for that after our food came.
Service was slow even thought the restaurant was not busy. This will be that last time we go to Undercurrent. To many better choices in town.

Great customer service here and excellent food. I have never been disappointed with anything I've ordered. The scallop dish is my favorite and the blueberry bread pudding dessert is spectacular. We enjoy coming here because the staff is always kind and attentive, which is nice especially if you are bringing elderly or disabled loved ones to dine with you.

We have not been to Undercurrent for a couple of years..no particular reason. Dinner tonight was great. Menu was great, as was the food. The quiet dining room was perfect for our catch up dinner with old friends. Other than a couple of minor server missteps (not our server) it was a very good dining experience.

We really enjoyed our meals and service, I’ve been twice and both times I was very impressed!! Everything was hot and tasty, the desserts were great! The sun reflects off the building next to the restaurant so it can be VERY bright at the front tables!

The outside seating on an August night was serene and relaxing. Inside is also quiet although the ambient temperature tends to be a bit cool for us. Service is very accommodating and the menu interesting and well-executed. We always eat there when in Greensboro.

Took my fiancé here for his birthday this past week. It was both of our first time dining here and were BOTH blow away. We had fried oysters and beef satay for appetizers. He doesn’t even like oysters and he couldn’t stop eating them. We each got the ribeye for our entrees and loved them. Very tender and perfectly cooked. The wine list also did not disappoint. We skipped desert as I had birthday cake at home but the list looked wonderful.

A usual, and as expected, we had another wonderful meal (and experience)! I had one of the main-course specials while my wife had the duck, which is always excellently prepared. Being able to take advantage of their generous "free corking" option on Mondays is another advantage of eating at The Undercurrent. BRAVO!

Undercurrent is one of our favorite restaurants in Greensboro. Love their oysters in salad, and any other way they serve them. Also love their pan seared scallops. I’ve never had anything they make that I didn’t like. Very professional and friendly.

The food was delicious, all three courses. When we return, I'll have the fried green tomatoes. My husband let me taste his. WOW! Dessert was the favorite; white chocolate blueberry bread pudding with caramel sauce and I'm not usually a dessert eater. Service was excellent! Our wait person could not have been better.

Made two menu choices we had not tried to date. First, my wife ordered the fried chicken. Being a true southern girl you have to go a long way to excite her taste buds with fried chicken. The girl could not stop telling me how incredible it was. Then I tasted it. Wow!!! That’s my next choice. I had the pork tenderloin. Fantastic! The sauce with the dirty rice and roasted corn was phenomenal. I could easily eat a plate of that alone. Thanks again for a great time.

The food and service were excellent, albeit a little pricey. The biggest downside to the restaurant was the lack of parking. Also, it would have been nice if they stayed open a little later.

Came in from Raleigh to enjoy dinner before a concert and was blown away by the food wine and cocktails. We sat at the bar and was welcomed in at 4:30 to have a drink before food service started. The bartender was great! We really enjoyed our time!!
