Our visit to Undercurrents was wonderful. The food was excellent, as always. The service great. They have social distanced the tables, and we feel it’s very safe to eat there. Always a treat!

Celebrated our 49th wedding Anniversary with one of the most outstanding meals anywhere found in Greensboro or the surrounding area. Chef prepared a dinner entre for me from an appetizer offering and it was incredible. Greensboro is lucky to have such a quality restaurant. We need to support it especially in these unusual times.

Absolutely the best experience here! This is my go to restaurant for everything so I was so glad to see them reopen. They have taken such care with the covid19 reopening standards and I felt very safe. You can tell the staff is careful, clean, and take care to sanitize without taking away from the experience. Well done! Can’t wait to be back again!

The food was excellent. I had chicken and my husband had the special which was flounder. We shared the lobster/shrimp spring rolls with our friends. We also split the bread pudding for dessert. Service was excellent

I would have liked a horseradish sauce or something to go with the crab cake. The salad was nice, but I think the crab cake should have been able to stand alone,

Our server was mediocre, talked at us and not to us. When I asked about house cocktails, I told her that she could just tell me, she went and got a cocktail menu and placed it on the table rather than hand it to me.

The sorbets were horrible for $9.

We had another wonderful experience at Undercurrent, but that has always been true when we have eaten there before. The cheese tray appetizer was truly outstanding with a good variety and good quantity of cheeses and other assorted items. Our group of four all ordered different entrées and each of us sampled something from each other’s plate, they were truly delicious - each and everyone of them. And as always, the service was first class and very attentive.

Of many dinners at Undercurrent, this one was among the best. Tomato soup, striped bass, scallops, trout, Chehalam Chardonnay plus two desserts were flawless. Add in Laura and the team's sensitive, professional service and you may get the point.

Thanks to Michael, Chris and the kitchen and Wes. Great night.

It was my husband birthday, so of course we went to our favorite restaurant in Greensboro. Wes and his staff were so kind and all wished him a happy birthday. He even received a complimentary dessert. Thanks Wes and all your staff for making Gary’s birthday special. You ALWAYS do a great job. And the food was wonderful!

This is very nice dining at a fair price, unlike some of the other fine restaurants in town. The food was plated and presented beautifully, quality of ingredients and preparation were on the spot, and the team service was attentive but not intrusive. The ambience is a little cold but with a room full of people this is minor to the overall experience. One of my other favorite places will be giving up some visits to this place.

This was the third time we have eaten at Undercurrent and the food has been outstanding every time. The lobster and shrimp egg rolls are so good I have failed twice to get a photo before they are all gone. I am normally picky about some things but I throw all that out the window when eating here and am happy to try anything they put on the plate. Blueberry bread pudding is the perfect way to end a meal. Best restaurant in the city!

23rd wedding anniversary. Outstanding Service, Outstanding dishes. I had duck breast which is a personal favorite. It was done perfectly. But the veggies were even better. Stellar cooking by the kitchen. My wife's salmon was also perfectly cooked and perfectly seasoned. As always, the best restaurant in Greensboro.
