“60th birthday dinner at a classy restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Currents looks more like an intimate New York restaurant but is located in downtown Tarpon Springs just off the Trail. I like the ambiance: white table cloths, low noise level, knowledgable waiters, and good food. Six of us had dinner over the weekend and Currents batted 100%. You can tell when people truly enjoy their meal. I usually get the meatloaf (as good as momma's) but sprung for the peppercorn crusted black angus New York with orange brandy sauce. It was outstanding! Ok, I'll be food critic and mention that the bread and side salad were tasty but not award winning. PS-- seating is limiited, i recommend getting a reservation.

“Good for Tarpon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Currents is probably one of the best restaurants in Tarpon - of course there aren't that many options in Tarpon, but Currents is clean, staff is friendly, and food is pretty darn good!! Recommend shrimp dishes and their bread pudding.

“Sevice needs some help”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

I got a deal to try this place from creative loafing deals. The food was great especially the seared salmon. The service was extremely slow. We waited for everything except for our water which was sitting there when we walked in for a reservation. We were there for 2 hours and most of the time was spent waiting for everything. The wait staff all seemed new and unable to manage a small amount of tables. It was disappointing. The value of the food was poor too small portions for big bucks. The only way I would go back there is if I got another deal and had 2-3 hours to spare.

“Hidden gem in Tarpon Springs, FL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

We were shown to our table, and immediately surprised to find a card with our name on the envelope. I had mentioned while making the reservation that it was our anniversary. What a nice touch! The food was fresh, cooked perfectly from the appetizer of Grouper cheeks to the Pineapple Grouper entree special. We were there during happy hour, and the Calumet Chardonnay was not to dry, yet not to fruity. The service was exquisite, and we were never rushed between servings. We finished off the evening with their chocolate flourless torte which melted in your mouth. We will definitely return.

“Great place to gather friends or just for 2!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

We made reservations for 7 people and were seated promptly. There was a guitarist playing live that greeted us and sounded great. We ordered a pitcher of homemade Sangria...red or white? Why not both? So they did mix it to perfection! Everyone ordered the shrimp cocktail and caprese salad. All were fresh and delish. Our dinner entrees came with a house salad...guess we were all very hungry that night...we ate everything! Our entrees included Salmon, Red Fish, Grouper, Pork and a flatbread of salmon....portions were generous and presented nicely. Bathrooms were clean and well stocked with various items for the ladies...ambience was great, but the best thing were the waiters. They were very accomdating and friendly and if we didn't see something on the menu, the kitchen will make it for you.
We didn't order dessert but menu looked good. Everyone was happy and it was seamless with excellent service. This is a favorite of my friends that I was visiting...I understand why. Good all around.
