Always great to dine at Undercurrent; always a surprise to see what combinations and pairings are incorporated for the seasonal menus. The duck I had did not disappoint - it was fabulous! Being a duck breast (as opposed to being a leg quarter), it was treated with gentle heat giving it a medium / medium-rare finish. The Philadelphia Pepper Pot Soup as a starter was also fabulous. Calamari with crawfish sauce (as opposed to an Italian treatment, using marinara) was the star of the evening - a bold and risky pairing that was perfectly executed. Our server, Peter, was enthusiastic, attentive, friendly and provided excellent insights regarding the menu. A+++++++

One of the best contemporary american dinners I've had in a while. We got the lobster spring roll with the most amazing ginger sauce, followed by perfectly balanced salmon and flounder entrees. The blueberry bread pudding that we ended with was out of the world. Great service, great food. Just sad that I did not find this experience sooner!

The food was fantastic. I appreciate the option to choose a small plate entrée, which allowed me to try a salad and dessert. Special thanks to Alvin for his on point recommendations!

Undercurrent was okay. The food wasn't exceptional and one of the dishes Apple/Onion Tart was horrible. The service was okay. The restaurant is very nice. The food wasn't at the level I expected
for the price charged.

We celebrated our 22nd anniversary. We first started eating at the Undercurrent when we were dating. Since then the location has changed, the spelling of the name has changed, and there have been several ownership changes. Through all of that, the food has been wonderful and it has remained our favorite Greensboro restaurant. Our meal was wonderful as always and a most enjoyable evening of celebration with my beautiful bride. Thank you Undercurrent!

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.

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.
