Undercurrent Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Undercurrent is an interesting upscale r ...
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.

Don't enjoy going into downtown to eat but Undercurrent has convenient parking and is worth the trip. Never a chance that the food will be negative in anyway. Been eating there for years and consistently everything is classy from the atmosphere, ambience, quietness, food quality and courteous, efficient, professional and friendly servers. There is also ample space between tables making it easy to carry on a conversation. It is perfect for upscale dining in a friendly, laid back environment. There is always a surprise on the menu which I always order. Never let me down!
Probably the most dependable place to eat in Greensboro and has always been.

We reserved a table for Sunday brunch for our family; Undercurrent is always delicious, with a quiet, elegant atmosphere. Some family members were late in arriving and the staff was gracious about it. The service is not hurried, and the servers don't hang over you, but they're available when you want them.

As always, Undercurrent excels in every aspect. Excellent wine selection, creative chef, and top notch wait and hospitality staff. I cannot say enough about how well Wes's team anticipates my needs, shows appreciation for my patronage, and delights with its cuisine. My favorite restaurant in Greensboro by far.

Nice relaxed atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable service, delicious lobster spring roll appetizer. The fried oyster salad was spot on. The Birthday Girl raved about her Scallop entree and I loved the NC Trout. The Bread Pudding was superb. The bottle of French Sancerre was the perfect compliment to our choices. When we received the tab, I remarked to my Birthday Girl that Undercurrent is a Value considering the wonderful feast including a really good wine.

The waiter was very good and attentive, but the food was nothing special and for a pricey birthday meal I was expecting more. Pork Loin was a bit dry as was the tuna. Tuna was probably misordered (medium well) and the server could have suggested medium rare. Trout was good as was the ambiance and wine.

I need to try it again. I was going to order the scallops but tried a fish special. Was pretty disappointed in that. Very small portion and seemed to be way overcooked. I intend to try it again, but I will stick to the main menu.

Always good food.
Service for the evening was lacking. Seems our waiter ( Daniel) couldn't remain focused. There was no mention of dinner specials, no bread was offered, a spoon was dropped with a needed reminder reasonably well after soup arrived. Later, we had to acquire a knife from an adjacent table for the entree. I'm thinking the restaurant may not have been busy enough on a Wed evening for him to provide the service we know here.

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.

Went to Undercurrent during dinner for a date night and was served by Alvin. My rate and I were very impressed by both the food and the service. Would definitely recommend it and am looking forward to going back!
Food was excellent as was the service. ...
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.
