    Our first time here, it was super pleasant. I only had one major question or complaint about something we ordered, the waiter told us some recommendations for next time. (This was totally acceptable statement) I got some grilled oysters after 15 yrs, I didn’t enjoy my first encounter with them so I tried them grilled and it was a success I definitely like grilled oysters. Every staff that we contacted or came by us said hi, very friendly and wished us a good night great hospitality business features. I will definitely will return

    There were three people in our party. The grilled oysters were raw, not grilled. The ceviche was nothing special. The waiter told my husband the fish stew with the market fish (halibut) was not going to be halibut but salmon. His fish stew came with bass instead and the server offered no explanation. All of our meals were lukewarm. The manager ended up comping my husband’s meal. There are too many other good restaurants in SLC. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    Wonderful experience! It was a birthday celebration and they personalize the menu for the guest of honor which is a very nice touch. Service was outstanding and the food was excellent. Oysters were fresh and briny. My husband loved the tender octopus and I had the shrimp and grits. Delicious!

    We were seated at a table by the entrance, even though there were booths available. Every time the door opened we were hit with a blast of cold air, not to mention the constant noise and commotion. The food was very good, would have been nice to be able to enjoy it. Overall a very unpleasant experience.

    Lovely restaurant, the gentleman host who greeted us was very welcoming. The manager who came by our table was also really attentive and kind. I grew up on the coast and with Current finally found seafood to remind me of home. We indulged on ceviche, mussels, octopus, oysters to start and oysters for dessert.

    Oysters were amazing. The ceviche wasn’t real ceviche; more like Poke since the fish wasn’t marinated and the octopus was so so. All in all, we enjoyed the experience and would go back.

    We love Current, but last night they did exceptionally well. They had a special menu for NYE and we sat in the upper area, which is very pretty! We had a lobster appetizer, bubbly drinks, and fantastic meals. Our server was amazing...never went a moment without a water refill or food on our table. Thanks for a great night!!!

    This was our first time at Current. My wife and I both grew up near the coast, love seafood, and have had some great seafood around the company. But, this was a great find. I guess SLC is not known for great seafood, so this is a place we will frequent. Not only is the food great, but we had great service and love the atmosphere. If I had to pick on anything, I'd say that the Clam Chowder was ok but not great - everything else was amazing - especially the muscles - so good. I definitely recommend Current to anyone that loves and appreciates good seafood.

    Food was great. We reserved the table at 8:15. we had very good starters then at 5 minutes to 9, they told us that the kitchen will close soon and we had to order the „last round“, what was not ok. We ordered again and it still was fantastic, but we where not satisfied with the way we need to handle. Could be more customer friendly. Everything else was fine and the taste was very good. A.

    A bit expensive, but the service and food were excellent, particularly the tuna crevice, crab cakes, and salmon. I'd like to see more fresh fish on the menu, but there are other types of quality seafood offered (calamari, fish stew, mussels, calamari.) We will definitely be returning!

    Great chef.. an interesting and delicious twist on seafood. Many options and preparations. A simple shrimp cocktail is an explosion of flavors with an Asian inspired arugula salad. Mussels are fabulous in a chunky tomato broth with crunchy garlic bread, good on its own. The smokey cauliflower with black lentils is great alone or with a protein. Service is attentive and very friendly. Good wine list. Didn’t try the oysters but will next time. The space is modern but not overly loud. Highly recommend.

    Our reservation was at 8pm, we ordered oysters, octopus appetizer and fish stew entree. All three dishes came at the same time. We felt extremely rushed, not to mention the rude waitress. All the food was over cooked. Was expecting a good meal and very disappointed.

    Current is usually consistently above average, but my recent experience was lacking in both food and service. I think it is a casualty of short staffing, like many other restaurants, so the experience was very disappointing.

    The food is mostly good and our server this time was excellent. However, if dining in the winter months, bring your winter clothes. I'm not joking. We froze through our entire dinner. We were seated adjacent to the main doors and every time someone walked in a huge gust of cold air would hit us. We could barely warm up before the door opened again. We had our coats on the majority of the dinner. Outside of that, the food is good and the atmosphere is cool. Scallops and ceviche were really good. No need to get the crab cakes. They're not that good. I love the old building that Current is in.

    The service was very good. Plates were cleared promptly, and we were checked on frequently. A-la-carte menu seemed a bit small, but seems they are focused on making everything in-house. I ordered the fish stew, very unique, but the bowl wasn't heated and the portion was small so it went cold quickly. They charge for bread, but only have one choice, not sure if this changes but it was foccatia, not a big fan. 3 pieces is a weird # for $6. We split that as well as the crab cakes and a tiramisu for dessert, which was very good, but more of a portion for 1. I left feeling a bit hungry.
