We loved the food adventure at Curate! We tried 8 different dishes and each was great. Nothing was what we would normally order but never a disappointment. We loved the lemon thyme ice-cream, and goat cheese stuffed peppers! Be adventurous and try something new!

I've been to several tapas bars in the past and always left a little hungry with an empty purse, but not at Curates. The tapas portions are reasonable and there are exceptional and interesting food options that will leave you coming back again and again. I would recommend sitting at the bar to watch all the action. It was amazing... More

A great place to try out varies meats from Spain. Everything tasted great. A unique experience. Highly recommend making a reservation and arriving 10-15 mins earlier. Finding parking is a little tricky.

This restaurant will surprise you. Does not serve the same things most restaurants in a tourist town does. The Stuffed Peppers with goat cheese is wonderful!

The food rivals anything we had in several trips to Spain. Top quality and many items I have not had outside of Spain. The staff was very helpful. Plan to try 3-4 items per person and share. At $10 or so per item, it adds up but this is a near priceless dining experience. Make a reservation as it fills... More

For a vegetarian with egg allergy, I was impressed. I actually came out feeling stuffed. The Pepper with goats cheese was to die for.

The restaurant is narrow then fills out in the small dining room. Food is good but if your claustrophobic not your spot.
