Undercurrent Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

This is still the best restaurant in Greensboro, NC. We go here often and came on January 22 for brunch. Their brunch is outstanding. We have had two parties here last year and the staff did an excellent job. Highly recommend.

They continue to be a lovely place to eat a good meal. I would like to see more options for healthier eaters made available. Sauces here tend to get heavy and vegetarian or vegan options are really not easy to get (even the set ups are not good options for the health conscious). But the quality is consistent and the ambiance is good.
Just when I didn't think it could get an ...
Just when I didn't think it could get any better - it did! Wow! The Sun Flower Seed Gnocchi, Kale, Roasted Tomato, Balsamic Onions, Butternut Squash Puree with Thyme Cream - a foodie's dream dish! You can't go wrong at The Undercurrent!

"our table" was situated right in front of the kitchen, which we were not happy with at all. We requested another table, the waitress seemed a bit annoyed, but she did ask a gentlemen about moving us, and our request was handled by him.

We enjoyed our experience except for my wife's grossly underdone salmon when the doneness was confirmed with waiter twice before order was placed. Order was for medium well and dish came as rare. Finally, when we wanted to find our waitperson, or anyone for that matter, to handle this issue it took 10 minutes to do so. The management did decide to do the dish over again for her. However, they should understand this never satisfies anyone because when the dish finally arrives the other members of the party have already completed their main courses. It makes everyone uncomfortable.

Never disappointed! The Sunflower Seed Crusted Trout with German Potato salad - French green beans - sauce Gribiche and Fried kale - over the top delicious! And always - THE BEST hot and house made bread you will find in the Greensboro-Winston-Salem- High Point area! Service wonderful and welcoming. My go-to place for lunch anytime I am in the area.

We've lived in the area for years and have never been here - boy, have we missed out! Started with cocktails at the bar and found the bartender to be very friendly and professional, the drinks were outstanding. Moved to a table for dinner and were not disappointed. The meal was wonderfully fabulous!! The menu is not overwhelming, which is nice. The service at our table was not the greatest, but we wondered if it were because there was such a crowd that night. We will definitely be going back. And often!

We continue to frequent this special spot for so many reasons. The obvious ones are, of course, the food, service and ambiance. But last night I noticed that Peggy will replace the white napkins for black ones based on what you're wearing. One more of the little things that Undercurrent does to keep us returning.

Inventive menu. Everything we ate was prepared well, and with creative twists. The rack of lamb with the rich maple gastrique was devine. Offers a variery of entrees for those of us not able to eat seafood. Also, will accomodate folks who are vegetarian. Attentive service. And at last, a restaurant that was quiet enough to have a conversation. Yes, we go out to eat, but also to converse with friends and loved ones.

Great atmosphere. Service was OK. Food was creative but not to my taste. At least the items I had chosen. Others enjoyed some of the menu items but not all. I would go again and make different choices. Prices were as expected.
While most of my guests said their food ...
While most of my guests said their food was excellent, my salmon dish was marginal at best. The salmon itself was fine but the accompanying items were either tasteless or bitter - in hindsight, I should have requested something else. Our server was very nice and attentive, but the host, who also delivered some of the dishes and handled the check was very abrupt, and unfriendly.

First time visit - greeted in a friendly manner by hostess. Server arrived immediately with warm welcome and quickly served cocktails, and reviewed menu. Somewhat unique menu with local flavors and twist to standard fare, but very tastefully applied. Perfect venue to actually have a conversation - well appointed surroundings that minimized the noise. EXCEPTIONAL service all evening. Highly recommended!!

Anniversary dinner. Entrees were: scallops and trout. Service was excellent. Food was prepared very nicely and was excellent. Lovely restaurant with a big city feel. We are determined to dine here more than once a year.

My favorite place in the Greensboro area to eat! I am never disappointed in the fabulous entrees offered at The Undercurrent. It was my first time to try the trout and I was delighted. Delicious - and always with the perfect seasoning and sauces! The bread is always fresh, hot and homemade!

We have never had a bad meal for lunch, dinner or special event (Murder Mystery Dinner). This was a special business lunch. We conducted the business and enjoyed the location. Our server is easily one of the best in Greensboro, if not the best. I'm keeping the name secret, so the server doesn't get too many requests.
We've had great meals coming in very casual at the bar, on un-special evenings. Adam is a great mixologist .

We had the salmon dish which was full of flavor and cooked perfectly. The trout dinner was superb, cook just right and with great potatoes. The bread puddinf desert was over the top and was warm, with blue berries and Carmel and a large size so was worth the affordable price. great meal and without alcohol was $50. worth it. Wonderful server who worked very hard to ensure a great business meal. She was awesome and the other servers lookes equally attentive.

Food was pretty good, but we were there over two hours. Got there at 6pm and it was not crowded at that point. The service was slow, and the food took forever to get to the table. I've had comparable food and much better service elsewhere in Greensboro for less money. I don't know that I would go back.

We tried Undercurrent Restaurant's new Sunday Brunch menu and we were amply rewarded.
Some old standby's are on the menu, but there were lots of new items too. My wife tried the French toast and I tried the off-menu special that included poached eggs. Expect some really pleasing new taste treats. You won't be disappointed!

Excellent! Our server Kelsey was wonderful, explained how food is seasoned and we enjoyed her recommendations. Pumpkin hummus was particularly good. Duck breast nicely done. Excellent presentation of all dishes. House Pinot Noir was excellent also. Hope to return on regular basis.

We met friends for dinner during NCAT's homecoming weekend. We were pleasantly surprised with the restaurant. we loved the ambiance of the restaurant and all five of us enjoyed our food. While I had the scallops my son got the cornmeal dusted trout which was my favorite. For dessert the cheesecake was good and surprisingly light while the bread pudding was very heavy. You might want to share if you get the bread pudding.

Undercurrent is an interesting upscale restaurant in downtown Greensboro. I had NC tuna served in an imaginative apple-based could. While interesting, the flavor combinations honestly were a bit strange. Service was ok, but I expected better at this price point. The service person didn't really seem to know the menu or the ingredients on the plate well. The wine by the glass was brought to the table in the glass, rather than being bored at the table. This is a nit, but when you're ordering fine wine by the glass, you want to know that you were getting what you paid for.
