Consistently first-rate Spanish cuisine from one of America's truly great innovative head chefs. Also impressive was the 100% Spanish wine list.

Very good tapas in a relaxed and friendly setting. Service was friendly and efficient. Pricing was a little on the high side but given the quality I did not mind. Go you will not be disappointed.

I was a little hesitant to wait an hour, but the food was worth it. Pork skirt steak was the best pork i have ever had. Little plates were the way to go, i never got full but got to sample lots of things

Wow! When we read the reviews about how great Curate was we were a little suspect. No way it was that great! Guess what? It was that great and better! Our server Avery was a dynamic well versed expert who help us order perfectly (yes,...More
