This was a first visit to Currents and assure you it will not be the last whenever I am in Tyler on business. The restaurant is quiet and cozy and made for an enjoyable dinner. Our server was Christy and she was awesome! She took time with our orders and paced the appetizers and entrees superbly. She was engaging and... More

We have been patronizing Currents for about two years. It is truly a hidden jewel. The food and the service are unsurpassed in quality. Yes, it is expensive, but worth the cost!

We stopped in for a quiet Monday dinner and we had a great experience. The rainbow trout special was wonderful. My wife had her favorite Mediterranean shrimp and pasta. The French onion soup is always outstanding. We love Currents and it is great for lunch or dinner.

Full disclosure, Eric, the owner is a friend of mine and has served me at other restaraunts where he was either bar tender or waiter or both. That said Eric's driving philosophy is catering to the customer's needs and desires. This comes out every time I go there. If you have special dietary needs, like vegan, then his staff will... More

The restaurant has currently gone under new ownership and is now terrible. They have gotten a new wait staff and they are terrible. The owner finds it okay to come and sit at your table for extended periods of time and talk when you make it obvious he is unwanted, and he finds it executable to call you by your... More

Currents has been very good and then average other times. The potential of this restaurant is very high, but there are times when the staff and food just don't live up to the expense. Some of the best and worst meals we have had were at this place and its worth the visit.

Eaten at the old location and always loved it. Made reservations at 8:15 for a romantic birthday dinner. Arrived, were seated and never saw anyone again for 15 minutes. Finally got someone's attention and ordered tea and water. Never saw anyone again. After another 15 minutes , we left and went to Bernards which was FABULOUS as usual. Was surprised,... More

Have had many dining experiences at Currents. The most attentive staff in East Texas. A diverse menu , with a unique Wine list. Willing to prepare additional extras to complement your selection . Would Highly Recommend..

Two friends, my wife and myself wanted to have a nice dinner before going to the theater. We decided on Currents as we have been there before and enjoyed the visit. This time we noticed that the background music was a bit loud. Three of us had ordered appetizers along with our meals. My friend was very explicit when she... More
