Undercurrent Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

As always, undercurrent was fantastic! The five onion soup is to die for as well as the lobster spring rolls. The scallops we're prepared perfectly and we are grateful for the introduction to tilefish. Service is impeccable as usual. It's a real treat to dine here.

The food was delicious but when read that I will get asparagus or squash I expect a bit more than 2-3 tiny spears. My arugula salad consisted of a few leaves. The fish portion was fine, but the sides were all but nonexistent. For $25 I expect to get actual sides.

Mediocre food (over-cooked fish & pork dishes)- small portions, not very tasty with thimble-sized portions of sauces, but aggressive pricing. Our wait person forgot our appetizers and we did not realize it until he served us our main courses. We asked for one "comped" dessert (one dessert to be shared by the 4 of us) and were told that they do not do it. We shall not return.

Excellent evening from start to finish. My companion started with a Pinot Grigio and enjoyed trout as her entre. I had a vodka tonic and feasted on scallops and risotto. Pleasant atmosphere and intimate even with the size of the dining area.

Table wobbled, which should have been fixed before we were seated. Ordered lamb rack medium rare, arrived medium raw. Lamb was very fatty, sides were good. Went with a groupon on Friday evening with no-charge corkage. Would have been extremely disappointed if I had to pay for my wine as well.
Not a good showing for a restaurant which presents itself as upscale. Don't think I will return.

Food was excellent as was the service. The host, on the other hand, was a significant negative. We arrived for our 5:45 reservation about 5:35. Only two or three other couples in the place. The host tried to seat us right outside the kitchen in the middle of the aisle. I asked for a different table. All, except three in the whole restaurant were open. He said he would relocate us. He put us right next to another couple who had just been seated. Since the tables are very close together (like being in New York), we couldn't help but hear their conversation, etc. The host claimed all the other tables were reserved. By the time we left, an hour and a half later, the restaurant was only a quarter full, at most. No reason he had to seat us in the lap of the other couple. This was the only downer for the evening but was a real downer for a dinner celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary.

We went to The Undercurrent for an Anniversary dinner. I even asked on Facebook for suggestions, which overwhelmingly chose Undercurrent. It was a perfect choice. The choices of wine were great. The menu was easily read and understood. My husband chose scallops and I chose beef. Each of the dishes were prepared and presented with flair. The entries were wonderful. The dessert menu gave us a variety of choices. Ours were perfect. We did shares tasting, and we agreed either entree or dessert would have been a pleasing choice. Perfect, perfect, perfect in every way. Can't wait to go back.

Our last dinner at Undercurrent was an early one - 545 so we could see a movie at 700 - and on a Monday. As good as Undercurrent is, we didn't expect to be thrilled but we were.
Chefs prepared a tuna loin special perfectly and prepared it with delicious potatoes, okra and pickled fennel. The dish is among the best tuna dishes we've had.
Sesame falafel was our other choice and it, too, was outstanding.
Thanks for another great experience.

Our experience from start to finish was absolutely impeccable! Wes Wheeler and his team know how to make you feel at home and special. Allison is the best--super gracious and authentic. Chris Wheeler and the fellas working tonight made us an incredible meal that was unique and full of summer freshness. If you want farm to fork for real you have to go here.

We ate here for lunch while we were visiting Greensboro, and the restaurant is a short walk from the downtown Marriott Hotel. I enjoyed very much my salad with a crab cake. My husband enjoyed his appetizer and soup. We wanted to return for dinner, but the restaurant was booked that evening. We will definitely return the next time we visit Greensboro.

We came here on a recommendation of the Marriott across the street from the Undercurrent, as we were in town for the weekend. The food was so outstandingly delicious with the ingredients varied, well balanced, and complimenting the meal that we came back the second night with another family member. The staff was polite, gracious, and accomondating to us. If you like scallops, than you need to give this a try. Whatever food we shared those two evenings didn't disappoint us leaving us wanting from a missing ingredient. Should we ever come back Greensboro the Undercurrent will be our first evening stip for dinner.

Our dining experience overall was very pleasant. Food was delicious. Wait staff was very accommodating. I would highly recommend the restaurant, however the parking was not conducive and it was somewhat problematic to find a space close to the restaurant.

Undercurrents is the best restaurant in Greensboro, NC. They started serving brunch, and it is a wonderful as lunch and dinner. We just hosted to parties here, and the staff was wonderful , the food great, and everyone had a great time and asked when we were going to have another party at Undercurrents!

Undercurrent lived up to its billing as fit for foodies and being responsive to customer requests. It's a bit pricey but the quality of the offerings and service are worth the occasional dining out budget buster. I live out of state and we drove up from Durham to grab a meal with my son who was doing some work in Winston-Salem. It was well worth the drive. Good grub and good times in a very pleasant atmosphere. We'll do it again if I ever get back to Greensboro.

Appetizer of shrimp/lobster rolls were a 5...no lobster seen to speak of. Sauce VERY spicy.
Boyfriends Flatiron steak was delicious as was my ribeye.
Dessert was a 50/50. Boyfriends pineapple upside down cake was so so but the bacon ice cream was divine. My praline tart "topping" was light but the base was extremely HARD. You needed a knife to drill through it. Service was impeccable as was ambiance.

We were seated immediately. The food was exceptional and our server had a great personality. He engaged my wife and me in conversation and offered some great recommendations. We were there for our anniversary and hope to return soon.

Easy and delicious pre-theater dinner in the bar with Perry and delightful fellow customers. Nice to have a gourmet meal so early in the evening. Oyster salad and trout are dishes we've had before and they were both different from the past. Chef Harkenreader does great updates to the dishes that his customers demand.

New in town. Found this restaruant on groupon and what better way to check out a restaurant.
My husband and I were celebrating our 36th wedding anniversary. This was a great place to do so. It was the Tuesday after the 4th of July holiday so the restaurant was I am sure quieter and less populated then I am sure it normally is. This worked out great for us as it was quiet and romantic. We had a fabulous waiter, the food without a doubt was fabulous as well as the presentation. I am a good cook and so am very critical of food that is not well prepared and tasty, I simply do not go back to a restaurant a second time if I feel this is the case. Not this case though, I would go back in a heartbeat. Very nice ambiance in the dinning area, would have liked to eaten on the patio however the evening was much to muggy that night for outdoor dinning.

Took my girlfriend for her birthday last week! We both loved it! The food was exquisite. The duck was perfect- probably the best duck I've ever had. The service was also phenomenal. Thanks for helping make the occasion something so special!

Food was great, truly one of the best meals I've had in Greensboro.
Wait staff unpolished for this price point. Black on black uniforms that's clearly showed they hadn't been washed. Friendly and courteous but for a $100 dollar meal between two people.... You expect more

My fiance and I wanted to spend a quiet evening together and the evening was perfect from start to finish. Our server Josh was fantastic, he chose a perfect bottle of wine and recommend his favorite entrees..beyond exceptional. He was professional and very engaging..a real gem. The mangers stopped by and were very happy and friendly. Highly recommend!!!

Although Undercurrent has a great wine list, Friday nights you can bring your own wine with no corkage fee. For me that means you can get a really good meal at a reasonable price (with wine). The cost doesn't require a special occasion. I believe our bill was about $35. per person which is a great value for excellent food.

The scallops and the trout entrees tonight were outstanding. You come to expect great service
and good food at the Undercurrent, but tonight the combinations of flavors in both meals were
exceptional. When you and your spouse are both saying "Wow, that's great!", then you know you
are eating food that a lot of planning and thought went into its preparation.

It was an awesome Father's day brunch where we were well taken care of by Josh. Quite a busy spot. We weren't able to get in until one of the later servings. Bloody Mary's were fantastic, apps, entrees and dessert were quite tasty and innovative. There were quite a large amount of wines by the glass. Prices were not cheap but were quite indicative of what you would expect when it come to quality ingredients! We'll be back!!

Fabulous relaxed brunch atmosphere. Live musician made our Father's Day brunch even better. The three is us enjoyed our entries immensely. You can call ahead to alert the chef of any dietary restrictions, such as gluten free. Although I was on a diet, the other two diners remarked that the cornbread muffins and biscuits were heavenly. Also offers outdoor dining. This was our first visit but we will definitely be back!

Undercurrent has always been a favorite, but it just keeps improving with age! They have recently started serving brunch and I visited with a date on Fathers' Day, The atmosphere was lively and festive, but not loud. Subdued live music was provided as a special treat. Service was outstanding, especially considering how busy the restaurant was. Although I would not generally recommend taking children, there were several there that day and it did not seem to create a problem for anyone. The food is fantastic, and just the right amount. It is well-presented and unusual, without being too much so. I have been there for both lunch and dinner, with a group and with a date. I have observed many local people conducting business there, as well. Highly recommended!
