“Amazing Birthday Dinner!”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

This is hands down the best meal I've had in a LONG time! We came on one of my layovers to celebrate my birthday and were blown away by the quality of the food, the service, and the ambiance of the restaurant. I'm vegetarian and there were tons of options to choose from, each dish better than the last! We were lucky we came in early, as the place was packed by dinnertime. The bottle of wine we had was superb and complimented the meal perfectly. This place is the best!

“5 stars aren't enough!”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

This was my 2nd time eating at Curate. We LOVE it! The Authenticity of the cuisine and impeccable service make this a one of a kind dining destination! On this latest visit we tried the ham platter, and it was such an experience. There's nothing on the menu I wouldn't recommend. The waiter was also wonderful at pairing our wine with the meal and picking out other menu items he thought would flow nicely. Timing was perfect! We originally planned to eat there for our 1st Anniversary dinner, but because of last minute reservations had to settle for lunch. Lunch ended up being a great idea as we could linger more in the restaurant and relax for the rest of the day. We also let them know it was our 1st Anniversary dinner, and they presented us with a free candy/dessert confection to commemorate the event!

“Great fun + delicious food”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

This restaurant was recommended to me and it certainly lived up to to my expectations!
Diners were having so much fun sharing the food and sitting at the bar was like watching a well-oiled machine. Everything we tasted was delicious and I can't wait to go back and try other recommended dishes!

“Love this place”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

I love this restaurant and love having the husband of the owner pair our food with his choice of wines, he is great. The iberico ham with cheese is incredible as if all the food in my opinion. My only fault is that it is hard to get in to eat unless you like very early or very late eating but wow, the food is fantastic.

“Delight for the palate”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We never had anything at Curate that was less than great. Some of the dishes are a revelation. Everything is very well executed from the overall concept of the dishes, the treatment of ingredients to the presentation. Until next time....
