Just an amazing brunch. We had not been to the Undercurrent in several years. The manager/brothers have hit on a well balance and inventive menu as well as stellar service. Dont neglect the Undercurrent.

The food was fabulous, as usual. Our server, Eleanor, was knowledgeable, friendly and always attentive. It was a very positive experience, as it always is. The nest restaurant 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.

First time for brunch at Undercurrent. The selection was great and I had the Breakfast Plater. Plenty of food (2 eggs, 3 pieces of bacon, 3 sausage links and hash browns and all very good. My wife had the omelet and it was very good. Definitely a nice place for a Sunday brunch.

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.

Overall a great experience as always. Only misses were the clam chowder, which several people ordered at our table, and no one really liked, and slightly over-cooking a pork chop. Other than those hiccups, everything was excellent.

Undercurrent was the first fine restaurant we enjoyed in Sept. 2012, as we were considering relocating to Greensboro from Rochester MI. We were fortunate to have found them, thanks to the Marriott Hotel staff. We were fortunate, also to have found an excellent home in the Sedgefield area. Greensboro was an excellent choice for us. Undercurrent continues to excell over time, as well as their wine list does. It’s always a most pleasant experience.
