Celebrated a friend’s birthday here. I had delicious soup for first course. I followed this with a crab cake special that was almost totally crab. Delicious. My friend had perfectly cooked salmon. We even splurged on dessert. She had an ice cream flight with three special,homemade ice creams. I had their blueberry bread pudding. It is totally to die for. The restaurant was full at lunch time, but we had no trouble hearing one another. This restaurant is special.
Just outsanding as usual! My steak was cooked perfectly, and the accompianing sauce was just great!
Incredible service, recommendations, and hospitality. We definitely will be back and highly recommend others to try this place.
Once again, our dinner was a wonderful experience! The special flounder entree was superb, as were all the other dishes we had . . .AS USUAL! Attentive and knowledgeable service, too.
We had an excellent lunch. Our server was attentive but not too attentive. The food was delicious. It’s an excellent place to do business or just have an extraordinary meal.
Excellent friendly staff. Great food prep and presentation. Nice wine list with fairly priced good variety wines by the glass.
Great experience. Had dinner there two nights while in Greensboro. Food and service was fantastic.
Took my wife here for dare night. She loved it! Shes a picky eater and they altered the menu for her. She lived the ambiance and we had a great time !
My wife and I were celebrating my birthday and we both ordered the seared scallops,They were perfectly cooked and delicious. I had potato leek soup,also delicious. My wife had the shrimp and lobster spring roll and it was to die for. The spring roll was so good that we decided to return in the near future to sit at the bar and have wine and spring rolls.
My sister and I make a annual trip to Greensboro to visit a dear aunt. We found Undercurrent several years ago. It is always a wonderful evening, delicious food and relaxing atmosphere.
We had a wonderful dinner for two—chicken and fish. The meals were delicious and the wait staff were attentive but not hovering. The trout was so very good—I could never make it at home this mouth watering! We split a salad and it was enough! The waitress made some good suggestions and I appreciated that. She was very knowledgeable and caring. She helped with a wine selection—most helpful as well.
Really nice place for a quiet dinner.
We were in town for a business trip and chose Undercurrent based on their menu choices. We found out we were on the last day of the current menu, and it was going to change the next day. They frequently update based on the season and availability of local foods.
Alvin was our server, and was both knowledgeable and pleasant.
The bread was great - warm and quite tasty - two different kinds, a dill bread and one that was more like sourdough. Both very good.
I had the fried oyster app and the trout dinner (half size) and my companion had the ribeye steak.
All the food was top notch, and prepared very well, both in presentation and flavor. We enjoyed a glass of wine and took a bread pudding with us for dessert later -
I highly recommend them!
Always great! Lots of creativity. Not just everyday food. You can count on the food being wonderful!
I was not impressed with the food. The lamb was rare. We asked for medium so my wife was not able to eat it. I traded her my Panko encrusted trout was was soggy encrusted. Some dishes were a mashup of so many ingredients they just didn't have much appealing flavor or texture. All that said, it was terrible just not impressive given the great atmosphere and reputation.
Everything was very good. I was a little disappointed in the desert. However, it was not bad, just not what I expected.
First time and I can guarantee it won’t be the last. My wife’s salmon was some of the best I’ve had. Cooked perfectly with incredible taste. I had the pork shank with a green rice. The meat was tender and very, very flavorful. Te green rice was so delicious!! On the op of great food the free corkage Friday offer is awesome. Thanks to all at Undercurrent for the great experience. See ya soon!!

Overall great food and dining experience every time!
As always, a great evening at Undercurrent. The food and service was outstanding. Always a tough decision on what to order as the preparation is always excellent. Undercurrent does a great job of using local food sources. The service is always top notch, however we do prefer to have Laura wait on us if she is available. Can’t wait to return for dinner on the back patio.
We have frequented the Undercurrent for many years, have had both exceptional food and service in the past. However, that was not the case for Easter Brunch 2019. We were extremely disappointed by both the service - slow and non responsive - side dishes delivered after the entrees, why for a table of 2? The omelett was served cool, took almost 45 minutes, must have been sitting for a while, 5 minutes later hot hash browns arrived. I don't really understand the service and timing issues, was neither crowded nor hectic. Waiter was too cute, kept referring to my wife as luv - just felt strange.
I suppose we will return at some point but not in the near future, perhaps it was just a bad day in the kitchen. There are many other options that seem to be providing both better service and excellent food.
I would recommend only because of past expereince and perhaps it was just a bad day or we were an exception to the norm.
Easter Brunch, a Negroni and scrambled eggs—not for the feint hearted.
Very disappointing. I ordered the ribeye because I wanted a steak. What I got for $34 was four thin slices of meat (might have been ribeye, might have been strip?). What I expected based on the menu (see attached photo) and the $34 price was a decent ribeye steak (intact since I really can cut my own meat). What I got was maybe 6-8 ounces of sliced beef. There are many very good restaurants in Greensboro, but this isn’t one of them. Avoid.
We loved the food! We are vegetarians and the restaurant was very accommodating. We thought our server was very nice and had potential, I am not sure the service training is the best. Our waters were never refilled. A cheese plate was delivered and no one told us what the cheeses were. The vegetarian entree was invented by the chef which was delicious but when it was delivered no one attempted to tell us what we had been brought. We asked what the trio of sorbets were and two servers had to consult each other to try to figure it out and when the sorbets came they had even been wrong about one of them. Undercurrent is a high end restaurant and the service should match the rest of what they are trying to do. Again, our server was plenty nice and knowledgable, it seemed more like he had not been trained to uphold a certain standard we expected at that price point. Food was excellent though!
Food was very good. Great place for a celebration.
An elegant, classic bistro-esque atmosphere. Food is always good.
The Undercurrent is a wonderful place to eat! The staff are knowledgeable and friendly and the food, with new options all the time, is excellent. (And on Friday, you can bring a bottle of your own, without the normal corking fee.) TRY IT !!
Delicious food. Great service. A wonderful lunch experience.
A wonderful meal. Good service. Finding the restaurant was difficult.Parking not available.
I wasn't sure if I'd love it as I am a picky eater and usually find some menus tough. IT was exceptional. Such a treat.
Best meal in North Carolina
Awesome! We always stop at Undercurrent when in Greensboro.
Undercurrent is a favorite choice for special occasions. My husband's birthday was our last visit. The food was just right! He described his lamb chops as "perfectly done" - and he's picky. My sea bass was delicious as well. And our cheesecake dessert choice was the perfect ending to a lovely occasion.
The Undercurrent never lets you down with high quality ingredients and service. Outstanding!!
Excellent food, service, and ambience. The soft shell crabs were among the very best I’ve ever had. Each of our entrees were absolutely wonderful.
Lunch at Undercurrent to celebrate a friend's birthday, on the patio. Superb food (all 3 o us chose the fried oyster salad--delicious!), excellent service, calm, enjoyable ambience. Undercurrent deservably recognized as one of the leading restaurants in Greensboro.
It was wonderful! So many delicious flavors!!
Our second visit. Everything was great. We avoided desserts as they had not changed, but this was otherwise a terrific restaurant and a terrific experience. Great value!
Loved the food and the atmosphere. Definitely will be returning.
The food and service were excellent. The atmosphere ands decor were spectacular.
