Wonderful spot great service
Good food, good waitress, had to wait 30-40 minutes for food, the restaurant was not busy at all when we ordered.
Really great find! We will be back whenever we return to Greensboro.
What a lucky find!!
Lovely attentive service. Loud crowd in the adjoining bar which eventually left (not soon enough). The food was delightful and presented superbly. A wonderful birthday dinner for my wife and friends.
Great food, great service. Fun business crowd at the bar. Overall gem. I will definitely be back!
I have always enjoyed eating at the Undercurrent. The service is great and the restaurant attractive. The food on this occassion was mixed. My meal was quite dry and didn't cohere as a dish.. I would have sent it back and I'm sure the waiter would have been glad to do so, but it would have spoiled our social event to do so. My dining partner's meal was quite delicious. We noted on open table that this was a special occassion, a birthday in fact that was not acknowledged. Did I really have to say so? So I did not. Three stars for this one. No worries, we'll be back and hope for somethng better.
It was my birthday, so I had to go to my favorite restaurant in Greensboro. Alvin was our server, and he did a marvelous job. Food great, as always, service great, as always, that’s why it’s my favorite restaurant in Greensboro.
Great dining experience, with wonderful entrees.
We were visiting Elon University and wanted a good meal to celebrate our daughter's acceptance to the school and decision to attend. I found Undercurrent highly rated online and booked through OpenTable.
We started with a cheese platter that was fantastic (4 assorted cheeses, walnuts, jammy fruit, and a cracker thin bread). I ordered the Rib Eye which was hearty, cooked perfectly, and delicious. My wife had the salmon and loved it. My daughter had the rack of lamb and said it was heavenly.
Our server was amiable and capable. In terms of dress, most men I saw had jackets though not all (I did not). For fine dining and a warm atmosphere to celebrate, Undercurrent fit the bill perfectly. I will go back on our next visit to Elon University and the Greensboro area.
Loved it!! My wife and I are first-timers to the restaurant. She had the trout and I had the bass special. All very tasty and well done. Atmosphere was very nice. Our waiter, Alton was outstanding! Everyone was very nice and friendly.
Overall, very good. Service was a little slow initially; but was redeemed in the end. Food was outstanding as usual.
Massively inconsistent. Some great items (duck, brownie desert), others bad or terrible (vegetarian option, chocolate birds milk cake.) People were nice and good atmosphere, the place has promise. If you want vegetarian, note kitchen is very literal. A bit of imagination would have helped in this case.
Undercurrent is a joy. Consistent excellent food and service in a comfortable yet professional atmosphere. On this visit, the "loaded" potato soup and oysters stood out. Special flounder was very good. Alvin's service was perfect.
Wine list was better then expected
Waffles, braised beef, w poached eggs was very unique . My son had the grilled salmon salad that he thought was very nice .
Was hoping to find something a little more hip then a diner or Cheesecake Factory for my 1st time in Greensboro . Well done .
Loved the food and ambiance. I rated the service as poor because our server was inattentive and underwhelming.
Amazing food. Locally sourced when possible. Dishes are complex but totally work. Worth the cost.
Great -Food very good- creative - lamb chop appetizer - wonderful - special very high end wines by the glass - were spectacular
Great food and service always! A nice evening out.
Presentation of food was great. But the taste was just ok. Crab cake biscuit was not worth 18 dollars. The service was very slow. Our server was super friendly and very patient as we asked many questions. But it took well over thirty minutes just to be served. The restaurant was very clean and presentable. But not a place I would go back to unless I knew I could be done with my entire dining experience within an hour.
Both my wife and I had the duck prepared in a raspberry sauce which was excellent. The duck was very tender and moist and cooked just the way we like it. The only problem we see is parking. They only have about 4 or 5 designated spot and the others are meters. After 6 no real big problem but just not many places to park. They definitely do not go out of their way to acknowledge special occasions like birthdays.
Food was great! Service and ambience were perfect for a business lunch!
This restaurant lives up to the hype for sure. My wife and I met some good friends here during a Romantic getaway for dinner.
We ordered the crab appetizer and it was excellent. For the main course she had the duck and I had the trout. I ordered the half plate. Both were excellent and had plenty of food for us to share and have our fill. For dessert we split the cheesecake, also excellent. I had a dirty martini and they got it perfect with my request of using potato vodka. One of the best martinis I have had in a while.
The only thing "lacking" (and this is purely opinion) was the wine list - the price didn't match the vintage/winery. Also, they should add a couple cabs / merlots from Alexander Valley by the glass (they only had one Alexander Valley selection; bottle only). This ended up being a good thing for me as I ordered the martini in lieu of wine.
The place was great for conversation, we never felt like we had to talk any louder than normal and we didn't notice anyone else's conversations. Parking wasn't a problem either. Our waitress was very attentive, and we lacked nothing when it came to water refills, timeliness of orders, and recommendations off the menu. We were a little concerned about dress code; I was wearing slacks and a sweater and she just looks good no matter what she wears. We noticed people in nice jeans and collared shirts, so it is a non issue as long as you don't show up in shorts, wear t-shirts, or ripped jeans.
Also, just my thoughts here, I don't recommend bringing little kids or crying babies. I think this is a place parents like us attend in order to get away from that. Give your kids to the in-laws / good friends for a night, LOL.
Thanks undercurrent, we will certainly come again!
Quality food with creative presentation. Good value for money for overall package.
A special date from Russia and I dined at the Undercurrent Restaurant for the first time in mid-February, 2018. Due to work conflicts, we were celebrating a belated Valentine's Day dinner. The staff were extremely helpful and the specials they related all sounded appetising. My date ordered the tuna special on a bed of couscous and I had the salmon in an orange ice cream sauce; both were cooked to perfection and incredibly tasty. Together with an always incredible sauvignon blanc with grapefruit highlights from Marlboro, New Zealand, the dining experience surpassed all expectations. We will return in the future to try other dishes and celebrate special occasions at the Undercurrent Restaurant.
This was only our second visit but have been extremely pleased on both occasions; the food, friendly service and quiet atmosphere have definitely made this one of our top restaurants in Greensboro. We took advantage of free corkage Friday which makes it a more affordable experience. Our server, Ellie, was friendly and personable, knowledgeable about the menu and attentive but not lurking. The two appetizers and dessert was just the right amount of food for us and all was delicious! We will definitely come back soon.
We stopped for lunch. It was good, not as good as usual, but this still is my favorite restaurant in Greensboro!
Four of us met for dinner and all agreed it was one of the best dining experiences that we have had in a long time. We've dined in some of the finest restaurants in the world, so this is saying a lot for Undercurrent.
From the hostess asking if we preferred white or black napkins, to our server Calvin being excellent and of course the food which was fabulous our experience was truly great.
Our only issue is that this great restaurant is over and hour and a half from our homes so will be hard to go to on a regular basis.
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!
The food was Phenominal. Always a family favorite.
Extremely satisfied. Food and service was excellent. Accommodations were outstanding.
Great meal although the portion of snapper was small for the price.
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.
Great food, great service, I appreciate you treating us so well even though we had to come in somewhat late
Had a lovely dinner at Undercurrent. The food, wine, and desert were all amazing. Would definitely go back.
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.
Nice, upscale restaurant with good atmosphere. Sunday brunch meals were very good - excellent omelette with spinach and mushrooms. Great place to go before Sunday afternoon theatre production!
This was our first time dinning at Undercurrent and we will definitely be back. The service was wonderful and the food exquisite .
