“Thanksgiving at Currents”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

We ate here for Thanksgiving Day dinner and very much enjoyed the ambiance (clean and modern looking) and the service (friendly and efficient). The food was served family style and we even had leftovers to take home. The price was very reasonable, especially compared to other, lesser quality restaurants in less desirable settings that also offered Thanksgiving dinner. The butternut squash soup in particular was scrumptuous.

“Several excellent dishes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

I was staying at the Hyatt while I dove in Venice Beach. I returned from diving everyday for 4 days and was exhausted each evening so I ate only at this restaurant. It is the hotel restaurant and has surprisingly good food. The conch chowder is wonderful with chunks of potatoes and conch in a rich creamy broth. The catch of the day was grouper and I had it grilled - wonderful dish. It was moist and flaky...Just as it should be. The side items are a bit lackluster - try the sautéed spinach though - worth the choice. The service is excellent and the meals were reasonably priced - I would certainly recommend the restaurant.

“superior”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

Currents in the Hyatt offers superior meals at prices found a far less sophisticated restaurants. The menu is health conscious with many organic and locally sourced ingredients. Portions are comparable to European standards so it is not for those looking to take leftovers. My gnocchi were flavorful, as was the trout, and the bibb lettuce salad. The recipes are inventive and inviting but the clear focus is on quality ingredients. Service was friendly and unpretentious. The table had a view of the pool and the room was minimalist contemporary with enough tropical color to fit in its Florida setting. This restaurant is a 10 minute walk to Van Wezel Hall.

“Decent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

The food was decent, though on the pricey side. I had a burger, which was cooked to order. However, the bun was disgusting with the grease soaking through. We ordered from the bar and took it to go. I doubt if I would eat hear again.
