Good, but not as great as I remember. Cure was THE spot for a business meal, tasting menu. Maybe the memory outpaces the reality, but the food wasn't outstanding like I remember it. (Mac and cheese tasted like liquid cheese instead of shredded blend. The buttermilk chicken was so small!)

Still, a great value and lots of variety.

Writing about Cure Bistro is like giving away a trade secret. The food, based on small plates, is excellent and well-priced and the service gracious. Luckily, most people assume any restaurant in a hotel, in this case the Grant Hyatt, will be bad so Cure is rarely crowded at mid-day. Don't know what it's like at night. But this is truly a hidden gem.

Cure Bar & Bistro is the best place for lunch in Washington, DC. It's an undiscovered treasure. I have been here countless times--and it NEVER disappoints. The whole concept of small portions is really unique, and the food is magnificent. And it's very reasonable. Of all the places I've had lunch in DC, this is my favorite.

Cure Bar & Bistro is the in-hotel restaurant at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, DC. As hotel restaurants go, the ambience good, but it does not compare with the best stand-alone restaurants. The food is very good, but the selection is limited. The service was excellent, even though our meal was interrupted by a fire alarm in another part of the hotel.

We were in DC for 11 nights and just wanted some "normal" food. For a hotel restaurant, this was great. Private, quiet seating. Both had the chicken and it was Excellent! Wished we had returned to try the salmon. From trying this place only once, would recommend.

We ate here three times in the past week while staying at the Grand Hyatt. Food was delicious and service 2 out of 3 nights was outstanding. Only negative was one night wife ordered a cheeseburger plain and said specifically “meat, cheese and bun, that’s it.” Server brought burger with added ingredients. When wife asked to send it back, server said if you wanted it plain, you should have ordered it that way.

Stopped in here before the Pink concert as we parked under the Hyatt. We had first gone over to Capital City Brewing which was Packed, crowded and Noisy. Since we had a reservation we came back to Cure Bar and thank god we did. We opted to sit at the bar as it was more social. The bartenders were AWESOME. Knowledgeable, friendly, I would hang out with them. Since it was a hotel bar, there were folks by themselves, we even got to talking with them. This is definitely the the type of bar/restaurant I would want to visit if I was traveling alone as it was quiet, yet entertaining. The food was really good. The Tap list outstanding (Local Craft Brews) and the cocktails very good. It was only a few blocks from Verizon Center, and parking below was only $12 via SpotHero. We will definitely return and may make it a regular for pre/post events.

I have eaten at Cure a few times and happily brought two new people with me (5 in my party). They loved it. Cure's menu caters to all tastes. If you're vegan, you can find dishes, same for vegetarians, fish eaters, and meat eaters. The food is creative, beautifully displayed, and tastes great.

Only restaurant in Grand Hyatt open in the evening. Has diverse menu that allows smaller or larger food and cost options. Food is good, not great. Better to stick with traditional hotel fare. Great bar staff; good table staff. Multi-level dining is not really user friendly. Would think someone will be doing redesign.

Taxi drivers know everything, and ours tried to warn us we would be displeased here. My steak was beyond dry even at medium-rare. The menu is deceiving because accompaniments are not listed with each entrée. Instead there is a separate list of side dishes, leading a diner to believe the menu is à la carte. We ordered sides, which were redundant. The server could have informed us but perhaps she was building a check. This place appears to be a watering hole for drunkard hotel guests and conventioneers. The noise from these ill mannered patrons was out of bounds. (This is an overdue review for a March 18 dinner.)

Lovely place to catch up with a friend. My burger was very tasty, secretly I think I loved the fries more! Our drinks were fabulous— Hot tottie! Chorizo flat bread needed some more sauce or something— it was on the drier side. We were pleased with the service. ‘‘Twas a good evening!

I keep coming back to CURE. The food is excellent and they offer up items everyone knows, but with a bit of imagination and flair.
The wait staff is so good and solicitous. This last time was crowded, but our waitress & the man who helped bring out the food were very much aware of what we might need and asked if we were good, without hovering.

Cure Bar & Bistro is a "hidden gem" in downtown DC. Located inside the Grand Hyatt hotel near CityCenter, the restaurant offers local organic food in a cozy atmosphere. They have a lunch menu where diners can select 2, 3, or 4 menu items; plus they offer the option of half glasses of wine for those of us who prefer a smaller portion. Lunch prices are very reasonable and correspond to the number of items selected. I had a bowl of their butternut squash soup, a lobster roll, and a tune poke -- all were delicious. I'll definitely be going back to Cure Bar & Bistro.

The menu is chocked full of foods you know, but they're all done with a twist. My table had the fried chicken, the posole soup, a pear and pistachio salad, mac & cheese, and we tried all three desserts. Everything was delicious. Nothing was left. It was filling and for a good price--3 small plates for $15.00. I recommend.

This place has an interesting layout, multi-leveled and opening up into an indoor hotel courtyard area. The food was good (not bad, not great) and the prices were very reasonable. Service was not good; we had to ask several times to get our water refilled, and the server made a rude comment about what my friend chose not to eat from her plate.

They don't know how to cook beef. One night, I ordered a burger medium and it was almost raw around the center. Another night I ordered a ribeye steak medium and it was well done. Other wise the food was decent.

Our second night there we were seated next to a bridal party of 8 even though there were plenty of empty tables. Out tables was less than 2 feet from their noisy party. The party wasn't rowdy. Just a lot of conversations. It would have been nice if my wife and I could have heard each other instead of their party.

We had a great time at Cure Bar and Bistro. We had a large party (12) and it was great fun to select different options from the small plates. The wine was good and decently priced. The food came quickly and we enjoyed nearly everything. The seating arrangement (several tables in each area with a seating area on several floors of the restaurant) was nice and kept the noise to a minimum even in the atrium setting. We would definitely come back for lunch or dinner.
