This place is simply supreme -
very friendly waiters and VERY great cuisine! Chef Costica does amazing things with food. Folks everywhere, you need to eat here!"

Just a unique concept. Have never
been disappointed with the lunch. Fun, relatively inexpensive, nice ambience, good food and very good service. A real gem."

We had dinner before the Eagles
concert and the food was great and service prompt snd friendly. The beet salad and pumpkin flatbread would have been more than enough and I could have enjoyed dessert too. The wine pour was not very generous, however. I asked for the 11/2 pour for $14.50 and it was more like a single pour and not a full one either. I will definitely try it again."
Dined on 3/1/2014
Huge portions of good food. We
tried the roast beet salad, meat tray, cheese tray, fried oysters, all very good. The pulled pork flatbread was not great."

This restaurant is split among
many levels and benefits from being within one of those hotels where the room ring around a large open space. There is a (man made) wadding pond and several tables have a view of the pond. The ambiance is nice, but some tables are out in the open and have really no privacy. There are a few that will - if you are on a romantic date, plan accordingly. The food is good and with small plates, portion control is easy. With their concept of ordering 3, 4, or 5 items, its almost like a price fixe menu."

Fanstactic special menu for
Valentine's Day. Wine list was exceptional and ambiance was perfect."
Dined on 2/14/2014
My husband and I came here for
Valentine's Day after reading their amazing-sounding Valentine's menu on Open Table. From what we saw online, we were not expecting Cure to be a hotel restaurant (which negatively effects the ambiance, we think), so it was not quite the romantic experience we were expecting. However, the food was delicious (and we are foodies----we loooove to analyze what's on our plate) and the service was very accommodating. I'm pregnant and when raw shellfish arrived at our table (something pregnant ladies are not supposed to have) as part of the Valentine's menu, Cure quickly replaced it with something I *could* eat at no extra charge, for which we were very grateful. Over all a very delicious and worthwhile experience."

The restaurant sat most people
down near the bottom of the restaurant, near the bottom of the escalators at the Hyatt for those that are familiar with the location. The main area where the host desk was wasn't open yet for customers to be seated. Food was delicious on all accounts. Did want a lot more bacon and cheese in my Bacon and Cheese cornbread but otherwise good. The Roasted pork chop and NY Strip were both tender and flavorful. Great ambiance. Just sorry the piano player wasn't playing when we went at 5 PM. Small, focused menu but executed very well!"
Dined on 2/8/2014
Our server was not great. It was
almost like he would forget we were there. And one of our shared plates came out after we had finished all of the others. It tasted like it had been sitting under the warmer for a while. Our server also never asked us for a drink order. That said, the food was pretty good. Sizable portions on the beets, and brussel sprouts. The pork flat bread was our late arriving dish, and was incredibly salty. I wonder if it was because it sat in the warmer for too long."

Cure occupies a number of levels
of the Hyatt hotel downtown, affording it some very unique views of the lobby. Food and service was very good. I'd go again. Note there is a entrance into the Hyatt directly from the Metro Center station."
Dined on 2/6/2014
I took my girlfriend there for
something a little different from our normal foodie adventure and it exceeded our expectations! The steak was perfectly cooked and the sliders were to die for. I was thinking to myself, maybe I was just hungry, (been on a strict diet for 6 weeks) but the reality, the food really was that good."
Dined on 1/31/2014
The food was good when it finally
arrived, but the layout of the restaurant (several levels of a hotel lobby) made it difficult for the wait staff to make the rounds. Just getting an order in was difficult. Forget about ordering another drink or asking for anything extra. We went on a Friday night, 7pm. Perhaps a different day/time would be better to enjoy the food."
Dined on 1/24/2014
I dined several days at
Cure...steak was fine, not exceptional...a little dry. The appetizers are terrific...cheese plate, roasted beets, baked squash, all prepared to perfection! Great place for afternoon people watching."
Dined on 1/17/2014
Was in a rush to find a place
close by for a quick dinner. Almost 4 stars at the time. Did not realize it was a hotel restaurant. My fault. Weird layout for dinning. Food was average at best. Waitress was very nice."
Dined on 3/23/2013
Nice wine selection. Good service
and a pleasant atmosphere. I had the cauliflower bisque and pork rabe flat bread. Bisque was very good. Flat bread was disappointing...mostly cheese."

We visited with our families for
my birthday, and the entire staff made us feel wonderful! Answered our questions, gave great recommendations, and took very good care of us."
Dined on 1/11/2014
The food at Cure is
excellent--delicate oysters, perfectly cooked fish and meats, interesting sides and desserts. But it's a restaurant in a conference hotel. Part of the restaurant is a corridor to the hotel lobby so guests are wheeling suitcases past your table while you're trying to have a nice dinner. The real downfall of Cure is the service provided by the hostess staff. On 2 occasions they’ve been terrible. This time, after being seated and waiting more than 20 minutes, we had to go to the station and remind the hostess we were there. She then did too much. Instead of sending a server to us as we requested, she tried to serve us herself--lukewarm water, incorrect order, missing items. Finally, the wonderful server corrected things."
Dined on 1/8/2014
The menu was very creative.
Services amazing and the food was outstanding. I'm not big on hotel restaurants but this was a pleasant surprise."
Dined on 1/3/2014
If you are looking for a very nice
evening out for a date, this place is on point. Very nice décor, not loud at all, and the menu is nice. Steak dinner was just how I wanted it and they will do the same for you."
Dined on 12/31/2013
Spread over three levels. Must
enter at top or things get screwed up. We were seated three times because some tables had been reserved so we moved but the tables we had to move from went unused for three hours. We could have eaten and left. The waiter, Chris, who wound up with our table was great. Looked out for a food alleregy and took great care of us. The NY Strip was tender and very flavorful."

Located at the corner of 10th and
H, Cure is the bar/restaurant of the Hyatt. And yeah, the ambiance is all hotel bar. However they have a farm-to-table thing going on with their menu that's unusual for that genre. Fresh caught rockfish, locally grown vegetables...everything was incredibly fresh, creative, and cooked perfectly. The service was also spectacular. There's also plenty of inexpensive parking at the garage on 9th, making Cure the perfect place to catch a bite before a show at the Verizon Center, away from the throngs. You'll also save yourself about $20 in parking. We will be back for sure!"

If you like "good food" - meaning
you like your food to be an exceptional experience worth spending your money - this is not it. It was par for "hotel quality" food"
Dined on 12/6/2013
For as nice as this hotel is
overall..the restaurant is very average. They change the menu often and its hard to find a favorite dish since the selection is constently changing. The bar area is nicely designed and bar service is descent..but not really a happy hour attraction."
Dined on 8/1/2013
I enjoyed my dining experience at
Cure Bar & Bistro. The food was great! I love that they have the little "tapas" style plates. It gives you just a sample of all the wonderful things they have on the menu. I highly recommend for a quick lunch with the girls or a date night with your honey. I will be back very soon!"
Dined on 11/19/2013
Cure is a perfect example of how
the taste of the food is only half of the restaurant experience. The dishes were all very good, but the service and odd view of the hotel's interior marred the evening. It was not very crowded, yet our server disappeared for long stretches. Be wary."
Dined on 11/15/2013
My sister and I found this
restaurant with Open Table & wanted something close to the Verizon Center. I had a really good mojito, but the pork belly was the hit of the night!! Wow...some of the most tender pork I've ever had. We also enjoyed the cheese platter and some sliders. Quick service and enjoyable dinner before a show. I recommend it."
Dined on 11/14/2013
The food tasted pretty good, but
didn't really impress like I was expecting it too. Its good for lunch, where you get the deal, but I can't imagine going for dinner and paying that much for such middle of the road food."
Dined on 11/14/2013
Another wonderful outing where I
brought new guests to Cure....and once again, I was NOT embarrassed. These new guests, like others before them, were impressed with the food and the entire concept. Cure is unique and probably one of the best luncheon spots in DC. You can't beat it!!! Always a fun time....good food, great service and at a reasonable price."
Dined on 10/30/2013
The food is delicate and the
decoration of the bar is perfect. The biggest surprise is that I have mentioned the day we have lunch is my birthday and they serve us a big cake slice (even bigger than my meal) for free!!"
Dined on 10/23/2013
I've been to Cure a few times and
its a great place for lunch! The food and service are always great and the design of the restaurant is very cool and calming. Also, I love how lunch is structured - the menu has several salads, sandwiches, sides and desserts to choose from and you can pick 3, 4 or 5 items. The portions are smaller, so it allows you to try several different things without leaving feeling too stuffed. Also, I highly recommend the Berry Bubble Tea. Its out of this world!"
Dined on 10/15/2013
Our meal was exceptional. The goat
cheese and beet salad was excellent. I ordered the scallops for my entree and was very happy I did. I look forward to my next meal at Cure."
Dined on 9/29/2013
all house made. great flavor
profiles. I'm obsessed with the beet salad and fried chicken -- which is so light and deeee-licious.."
Dined on 8/28/2013
I love their "build-your-own"
lunch menu. It's quick for lunch because everything comes at once. I went with a group of 6 and separate checks were no problem. Despite being in the lobby of the Hyatt it's one of the few places that's near a Metro, reasonably priced, and you can hear the conversation. I have been there more than 6 times and the food and service is always excellent. I love the fresh brewed iced-teas - 5 flavors and they make it at your table and leave you the carafe."
Dined on 8/22/2013
The ambiance is lively and good
for groups (not for quiet conversation). I went a few months ago and the food was much better with more interesting menu choices. This time, many of the dishes were bland and over salted. The best dish was the tempura shrimp, the chilled corn soup was inedible. Our table was too small to hold all our dishes, but the server never attempted to assist with clearing away dishes until we asked. We also had to ask for water, additional silverware, extra menu, the bill and our change etc. He was slow, unorganized and unprofessional."
Dined on 8/1/2013
I'd only been there once before
for dinner - it's a favorite lunch spot - and remembered some different items that were more for sharing. It might have been me but the food tasted especially salty the other night. And my friend oysters (perhaps my fault - it's not an "R" month and I ordered anyway) were sorta tasteless. The pork belly (that's what it was right?) was overwhelming in the dish. The grits were excellent. We shared the cheese sampler as an appetizer and it was very good. BETTER would have been labeling of the cheeses or the server telling us which was which. Friends loved their steaks. The cherry pie was disappointing - it looked like it had been sitting around - mushy inside, not great crust. Overall I'd rather have lunch."
Dined on 8/6/2013
Our first time at Cure. Food and
very friendly/attentive service a nice surprise. Would certainly go back"
Dined on 7/29/2013
We love cure. Their small plates
offer guest a wide variety of combinations for lunch"
Dined on 2/11/2013
Everytime I've not been there for
some time and then return, I say "why haven't I been back"! It's so good - and fun. The portion sizes are perfect - someone w/ a smaller appetite can eat 3; larger appetite, 5. And love that they include a half glass of wine as an option for one of the choices. Tho' it will seem mundane, get the potato chips! Oh so good and worth the splurge. The summer menu has some fun new items on it. Go .. try. I like the booth seating most of all because it's a bit quieter and private. And some of the seating is lower (than I can do.) If you go in the winter, ask for the table for two by the fireplace!"
Dined on 7/17/2013
The food never disappoints you!
Great shrimp and grits!"
Dined on 7/16/2013
Very disappointed in the staff in
accomodating me with my sister's birthday party. Stressed out. I love the food so will keep it simple and have dinner only. Customer service is not their strength!"
