Really superb Seafood Bistro. The cheese tray includes Robiola Bosina, Drunken Goat, and Montealva. Hello! Served with toasted bagets. The fresh fish special including Snapper, Ahi, Trout. Impeccable. The Dolmas and olives was also excellent. All specially prepared. Super service? Specialty drink. Great evening out.

Visited here twice in a week. Great fish apps, cool industrial warehouse aesthetic,but absolutely best bartenders—all recommendations spot on! Also, ask the bartender (Natalie) about The Plastic Cherries!

Have never eaten at Under Current, but they do make great cocktails. Try to stop in before heading over the Current, as they are attached. Great staff....friendly and knowledgeable.

Excellent bar, great food, and terrific bartender. We were tired after running errands in hot spot virus Salt Lake City and it was 95 degrees to boot---oh, Current offered to seat us outside but 95 degrees makes outside seating less desirable (even though the outside...area is nicely decorated, and pleasant in fall and winter with a big fire burning near entrance of restaurant). They carefully watch that everyone wears a mask and is practicing social distancing. We had really great char broiled hamburgers and the best fries I have ever tasted (there would be a photo but we were so hungry we forgot). The drinks menu listed all sorts of enticing, hilariously labeled cocktails but we aren't real drinkers so we settled for Rose'. Great fun. Hope to return.More

Great for drinks and a quick snack. Bar was very crowded and it was hard to find a seat but we managed to find a tight spot. Overall fun and great atmosphere.

We stopped in Under Current in early January for cocktails on a Saturday night. We loved this trendy bar with a big city cosmopolitan atmosphere ( we are in Manhattan often). We were interested in the Absinthe themed cocktails and the bartender provided extraordinary service....He discussed a couple of options and recommended excellent cocktails. It was mostly a younger crowd ( we are much older but still love to have fun) and everyone went out of their way to make us feel so welcome. So we stayed awhile. So much fun. Excellent service. Highly recommended.More

I would argue that this place serves up the best cocktails in Salt Lake. The offerings are unique and can please a variety of tastes. Bartenders are super knowledgeable and their bar menu is great too. Definitely worth dropping in if you’re visiting.

Excellent hand-crafted cocktails in one of the hippest bars in town. Great appetizer/bar-food selection. Nice choice of background music but not too loud to have a good conversation.

We had a great experience at Undercurrent. The drinks were top notch, the Bahn Mi and oysters were to die for and the service was outstanding. We love Current and will add Undercurrent to our list of places to go!!

We've lived in the area for awhile and have gone to Current next door, but somehow missed this place until some friends asked us to meet them there. We were greeted promptly at the door and were sat a table for 4. Relaxed setting, but...there are so many other cool bars in SLC that I wouldn't place this in the top 5. I was also surprised that they didn't carry Tito's, High West or even Gray Goose vodka, and when I asked if they could make a cucumber vodka cocktail, our server said she'd go ask the bartender and after a couple of minutes of discussion, she said he could. It was a really good cocktail, but it wasn't as if I asked for something highly unusual. We ordered the meatballs (we were going elsewhere for dinner) and shared between us - they were really good. In summary, a nice place, but with all the other great bars (and more vodka choices) on and around Main Street, we won't be back. If you're in the area of 300 South, or eating at Current, sure, this place is worth popping into.More

We went around 5:30-6pm.The vibe here is chill to the maximum. We got oysters (both of our first time) and enjoyed them. Tasted fresh (to the best of my ability to gauge). Fish tacos and the beer was fantastic. Next time I'd try their cocktails....all the employees were splendid, and welcoming as this was our first time here!More

This is a great local social bar. I was referred to this bar by a bartender from another restaurant and it was a good suggestion. The drinks were good and their music selections were very diverse. The staff was pleasant and attentive.

A craft cocktail experience like no other. A cool cocktail menu with a great variety. My husband and I wanted a drink in a relaxed environment and it totally fit the bill.

Under Current sets an increasingly high bar for the cocktail culture in Salt Lake. The atmosphere and interior design are fantastic while the mixologists are second to none. Frequent menu updates ensure that the highly trained staff are always on the tip of the spear...in terms of trends and offerings. As many of my drinking companions from outside of Salt Lake have remarked "Under Current does not feel like you are in Utah." Take your time, Under Current only offers the highest quality spirits, and you are best leaving yourself in the hands of the staff. They can guide you toward a decision based on your preferences, which offers an excellent opportunity to step out of your cocktail comfort zone. Like all good things, quality takes time, so relax and trust that you are in the best hands in the business. In addition, while the cocktails are the main focus the food and wine are also exquisite. The "Bar Food" consists of exceptional small plates from their sister restaurant Current next door. The oysters, steam buns, and tacos contribute to one of the best bar food menus in downtown.More
