Undercurrent Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
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.

Enjoyed the atmosphere and the friendly, attentive staff. Did not like the mirror behind our table. Felt it was distracting to look at myself or my dates backside during our meal. Otherwise, was a very pleasant experience.
Food was outstanding and the waitress recommended a very good white wine.
Ate lunch there on a weekday and enjoyed it very much. My wife and I each got soup (the mushroom was our favorite). She got a chicken salad, which had plenty of chicken (way more chicken than Panera and better flavor). I had the BBQ sandwich, which was awesome. Nice atmosphere and good service
We were there for a special birthday dinner. The noise level was perfect—we could hear ourselves talk. The food was delicious and very special. Each person had a different dish and loved it. I had the trout and it was some of the best ever. Appetizers and desserts were great. A wonderful dinner for a special occasion!
You know how duck ordered often disappoints? Not here. Fabulous. Artichoke crostini of some sort also fabulous. Friends' fish dishes perfectly good. The chef clearly has a good confident hand in creativity, and all ingredients fresh fresh fresh and usually local. If I lived here I'd go regularly
We have eaten at the undercurrent restaurant many many times and on previous occasions we came away excited , challenged ( unique ingredients and preparation style ) and completely satisfied with all aspects of the meal and service . On this occasion everything was perfect, the wine, the unique wine list that was prepared recently and all of the food except the bison . The bison was remarkable only because of its lack of taste and toughness. Unfortunately the uniqueness of having bison on the menu did not come close to compensating for this disappointing dish . If you closed your eyes and took a bite of the bison and concentrated very hard on what messages your taste buds were receiving the only message you would have gotten would have been an SOS . Ok , that was a cheap shot- but seriously bison is a tough and bland meat to cook . Unless you are going to cook it SousVide for 12 hours it will be tough . As the chef at -high plains bison - is quick to point out in a recent blog post on the subject - bison isn't just Wooly beef and it can't be cooked so as to bring out it's true flavor with traditional culinary techniques such as roasting or grilling. Ok enough - we now know that the bison wasn't hunted to the edge of extinction because of it's meat it was the fur that got them there.
The service was wonderful - a new lady that has only been there about 8 months - very smart - great interpersonal skills - her name is Melanie - ask to be seated in her section you won't be disappointed- unless you go with "wooly beef " of course .
Some of the best food in the triad area, fresh local food that is delicious! Device was impeccable. Not a huge wine person but the server helped goose a wine that my date would like the best. Couldn’t have been happier with my choice! Will definitely go again.
This is one of our two or three favorite restaurants in Greensboro. We like the quiet elegant, the wait staff, and especially the food. The menu changes fairly often. I personally favor vegetarian dishes,—the kitchen staff always puts together a very unique combination for me.
The food was decent although they substituted many of the side items without making us aware. My husband ordered the prime rib and it mentioned steak fries and he ended up with potatoes. I was missing The pina coloda cheesecake left an awful after taste. The service was not great at all. My glass stayed empty for quite sometime until I asked for a refill. I was there to celebrate my birthday and even noted it on the reservation. No one even acknowledged it.
