Outstanding service from Scott plus excellent food - an appetizer to share of crab, two of us had tuna with Israeli couscous and the other had green eggs and ham tart. Great food, great evening.

My husband and I went to Undercurrent for Valentines Day. The staff were very friendly, our hostess seated us at a little corner table which was romantic and quiet. Our appetizer of lobster and shrimp spring rolls was elegant and delicious. My husband got the scallops and I got the trout. Each dish was exquisitely prepared and extremely tasty. Thank you!

My wife and I decided to do an early Valentine’s lunch vs dinner. The meal was very good, and though a limited lunch menu we were able to find several very good options. Well prepared, and very tasty.

I found it odd that being the first patrons there at 11:30 AM that the parking lot was full. I mentioned this to the waitress and she stated that most of the employees park there since it's the only free parking. I think management should accommodate employees by providing parking that did not take parking away from paying customers. I had to pay for parking.

This is our favorite restaurant in Greensboro for special occasions. We've always been pleased with our entree and recently had the red snapper and trout which were prepared with perfectly balanced seasonings and sides. The blueberry bread pudding is the best, anywhere.

Undercurrent is hands down my favorite restaurant in Greensboro. Every meal I've had has been spectacular and I especially like that they'll cater to my special food preferences, creating amazing dishes when I ask for "vegetarian, gluten free". Fantastic service, great place for business meetings, great spot for date night!

We made reservations online weeks in advance. I made a note we had never dined there before and we are celebrating our wedding anniversary. We we're sat at a small table for two in an alcove of seating with a table across for four. Our seating was perfect until the restaurant was bare and they sat a family of four next to us. The alcove echoes so we heard their whole conversation. The food was excellent. The service was sparse. The restaurant made no effort and no mention of us celebrating our anniversary. An acknowledgement that we chose to spend our special night in their establishment. We will not be returning.

I'm never disappointed with Undercurrent. The food is always perfect. The wine recommendation (lovely Colene Clemens pinot noir) was exactly right for our food choices. The staff is friendly and welcoming. It's simply the best upscale dining in Greensboro.

Deb and I went there for our anniversary. The Undercurrent came to mind because I had received a coupon (which I couldn't find). I had never been to the restaurant - though Deb had been there twice for lunch. Not many people were there on a Wednesday night. The restaurant would be more enjoyable if more people were there. On the other hand I appreciated the fact that it was easy to talk. I liked the snazzy style of the restaurant. I liked the blown-up photo of
part of the fountain in front of the Palais Garnier (the old Opera) in Paris. I appreciated the small plates: enough to eat and good for the wallet. The egg rolls we ordered as an appetizer were especially tasty. I thought that the manager should be wearing a necktie, even in 2017. The server managed to seem not very intrusive - even though he kept checking on how-we-were-doing (snore). I prefer the Undercurrent to Mark's - both for setting and food (though we like Mark's). We'll be returning to the Undercurrent, perhaps with another couple. Heck I found the $10 coupon.

We have been going to Undercurrent for years and never disappointed until New Year’s Eve.
They took our 9:00 PM Reservation, but from the moment we got there they were in a hurry for us to order, eat and leave..... cleaning tables while we were eating....

We had not been back to the Undercurrent in over two years. The food and service had definitely improved. My wife had a soup and a beef appetizer, while I had a salad and beef entre. All were very good to excellent. The service was friendly and attentive. We will go back in the near future.

This is our favorite restaurant in Greensboro. We love everything about this place. We have been there often enough that the hostess knows us. The ambiance suites us very well, and the service is always excellent. Two things stand out: the chef and Brandon, the sommelier. The food is outrageous, and it is hard to pick one thing that we like the best. The wine choices are creative and unusual and are spot-on for what we are eating. We always end of buying a mixed case of wine from the choices we had for dinner, since the wines that Brandon selects come from smaller vineyards that cannot supply Total Wine or Costco.

Great service with great food. All of the courses were made with care and tasted fantastic. No one rushes through dinner or even sitting at the bar for a drink. Get in now. When the new hotel, condos and apartments are finished this place will need a bigger building. My fourth time here and like a good wine it gets better with age.

The food was flavorless and disappointing, even the desserts, which lacked richness and taste.
The clam chowder was flavorless and I'm not sure there were any clams in it. Certainly little to no clam flavor. The entrees were no better. The service was well-meaning, but not very helpful. Not recommended.
