Probably best place to get a great upscale meal in Tyler

The new location is very nice. A classy warm room with modern art touches. I like Current's because I can trust I will have a very solid meal every time. There isn't another high end place in Tyler where I haven't been disappointed. Drinks are well made. Wine list is solid. Upscale food in... read more

On a Thursday evening with only 6 customers in the restaurant and the service was beyond "slow". We did get a menu and water soon after being seated. Then, after at least another 20 minutes the hostess/waitress brought us one cold roll each. Don't they know a number of their competition bring you a small, hot loaf of bread within... More

If you can get beyond the snobby hostess, you may love the food. I've been twice and the last time we walked out before being seated, which I've never done before. There are always only one or two tables with people eating, yet the hostess acts annoyed to see guests. I've heard this from so many other friends as well.... More

We were visiting family and went to celebrate Valentine's dinner. The wait staff was very unorganized and harried. There was a help wanted sign out front, so maybe the chef had quit.. My husband never received the appetizer her ordered. My salad came 10 minutes before everyone else. It had maybe 3 pieces of lettuce. They were out of the... More

We were surprised to find this more upscale restaurant while visiting in Tyler, TX. Tyler has always seemed to cling to the past with little creativity when it comes to its restaurant menus. However, this restaurant served elegantly prepared meals worthy of any other upscale restaurant in much larger cities. The appetizer blew our socks off--fig stuffed artichoke in a... More

I get my hair done by Darla at Mane Essentials 2 doors down. Today, I did not bring anything that seemed like a good bite for lunch so stopped in at Currents for a menu and phone number to call as my appointment neared its end. Apparently, they have an issue with staff as one person told me "no to... More

Wow. What a let down. We heard that this restaurant was good but not great so we wanted to see for ourselves. It's true. We were so disappointed. I don't think they know how poorly they compare to other great restaurants. They have such potential but aren't meeting basic qualifications. First of all, the bartender was no where to be... More

A golfing group of twelve dined at Currents. I must say the service was very, very cordial and very good. The problem was the food. The citizens of Tyler deserve a better, upscale food quality restaurant. Probably not just a bad night; my strip steak special with a sauce was very tasteless. Not a brown, charred surface; only grey matter.... More

Currents moved and is under new management. Great small place to eat. I had a few dishes the night I went salmon was really good. Shrimp past dish was really good. Appetizer were very tasty. Meat loaf was really good as well. Friendly and attentive service. I would say you will not be disappointed in this place. Very good.

We went to Currents for lunch. The greeting was with an attitude of dismay that we were there. We ordered a ribeye steak and Mediterrean chicken. The steak was 1/2 fat and the chicken dish had 3 small pieces of chicken and a bland taste. The service was very average at best. The manager did comp the steak after complaining.... More
