    The consistent level of service, be it at the bar or in the main dining area, Under Current is the gold standard. Never trying to upsell you on wines and always trying to guide you through the menu to be sure you get something you like, the staff is wonderful. Quality of food is commensurate with pricing, which is always a good value. Been coming for years and will continue!

    Undercurrent is consistently great...dishes are well-conceived with layers of flavor, service is top notch and wonderful ambiance. It has to be one of the best, if not the best, restaurant in the state.

    Bravo to the staff at Undercurrent. The service and the food were excellent. The tempura green beans were excellent and I will order those again. We ordered the nightly specials which were both delicious. Don’t skip dessert! Both the blueberry cheesecake and the mango tart were fabulous. We will be back.

    Our brunch of French toast and a traditional breakfast were very nicely prepared. We do holiday dining a week in advance of the holiday...it makes for a relaxing meal. Scott was our server and he is excellent and always adds to the enjoyment of dining at Undercurrent.

    Our waitress appeared to be stoned. She came to the table four times to ask one guest what his wine order was. Kept bringing food and drink for other tables to ours. Took a LONG time to get back to take food orders. I ordered the pork and my husband the duck. She wrote something down and then said 'so, two duck'. It then took a LONG time and no food came. We asked her to check on our meal and she went away and never came back. Someone came and apologized, and another wait person brought our food. Apparently it had been sitting under the warming lights for awhile. My pork (ordered medium) was dry and stringy and the polenta bread had to be cut with the steak knife. We were comped desserts and recieved more apologies.

    Always can count on UC for a great meal and terrific service. We will return again and again. Trout was superior and the pork tenderloin was delicious. Drinks were perfect and there is nothing better than starting off at UC before going to a show or a night on the town. Well done UC Team!

    Undercurrent is an absolute gem in the downtown Greensboro area! The atmosphere was incredible, food was incredible, and our server was very attentive, kind, and personable. Our waitress Emily, and the whole Undercurrent team came together to do what they do best, and me and my fiancé's anniversary was all the better for it! Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a wonderful evening and delicious meal!

    We had a wonderful brunch while celebrating my son's birthday. The restaurant seated us in time and drinks (highly recommended Bloody Mary's) arrived quickly. The Sunday brunch menus has enough choices to please everyone. Our table ordered the burrito, 2 Japanese breakfast platter and the Shrimp and grits. Everything was perfect. Our waitress Emily went out of her way to ensure we were taken care of. We'll definitely be back.

    We had the most delightful meal at Undercurrent! Our waiter Alvin was so professional and helpful. The food was absolutely delicious! Highly recommend the spring rolls. I had the mahi and it was perfectly cooked--I think the best I've ever had. The house made ciabatta was an added plus as was the extensive wine list. I have only good things to say about the whole experience.

    Our first visit to this restaurant. Food and service was excellent! My date and I dined early before a show. I had the spinach salad, my date had the mixed greens. Both were excellent, with a wonderful blend of fresh ingredients. We were not very hungry, so we split an entree of seared ahi with wild rice, grilled asparagus and lump crab. It was perfect! I was very pleased the kitchen split the dish for us We finished the meal with a cranberry / orange cheesecake. It was delicious.

    We dined here before a Tanger Center event, so it was early. Nobody was at the podium when we walked in but when they noticed we walked in, we had two people attend to us. The welcome was friendly and welcoming. We hadn't dined here in years as we don't go to downtown Greensboro to dine out. Our waiter, Scott, was very friendly and made suggestions. We appreciate it when the staff relate their favorites. My cocktail and my spouses wine were very nice. We had the shrimp appetizer, the scallops and trout as entrees and the butterscotch creme brulee for dessert. All were delicious. My creme brulee was good but not enough butterscotch and a tad too sweet for my taste. The freeze dried strawberries were an odd topping. Overall, we would return. The ambience is very nice in the restaurant and all around a good experience. We look forward to the new menu debuting next week.

    Consistently good, last night was especially good food. French Onion soup was good (not too salty like many versions, yet was very flavorful. Should have had more mozzarella on top and multiple croutons would have been better than single bread piece that seemed like an afterthought). Salad was excellent - very fresh, blue cheese crumbles, bacon, tomato - all ingredients were top notch. Shrimp & Lobster spring rolls very good, not heavy or greasy. Pork on bao buns was excellent with nice sauce with a bit of Thai kick. Salmon was cooked perfect, served on bed of noodles. Nice bit of crunchy, kind of seared crust. Cooked to perfect temp, not dry or undercooked. Extensive wine list, we had a nice bottle of pinot.
