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.

Cure is my new go-to lunch place. Good food and easy to have a conversation. The food concept is interesting---choose 3, 4 or 5 dishes for set prices. Portions small but not micro. Good value, quality, taste and service.

There lunch menu is reasonably priced and it’s fun to get three small plates for $15. I had small lobster roll, fried chicken piece, and salad. Not a bad deal.

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.

Service was bad, not poor. Waitress was inattentive and clueless. Food was average, and it was extremely loud. Thought it would be better when connected to a Hyatt. Truly disappointed.

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.

Cure Bar and Bistro has a lot going for it. It's an attractive, comfortable space. If you like the opportunity to sample several dishes (which I do), its small plate format makes it easy and enjoyable. The prices are reasonable. The service is attentive without being intrusive. The booths and some of the tables are sufficiently set apart that it is possible to have a quiet, private conversation which is impossible in many noisy, more crowded DC restaurants. The one fly in the ointment is the coffee, which, in my recent visit was among the worst I've had anywhere. To call it "gross " would be a step up. It certainly was not the way I wanted to wrap up a pleasant meal. The experience won't stop me from returning to Cure, but it will stop me from ordering coffee there again.

 (Seattle)·Dined on April 27, 2017

Had a good experience at Cure after a day at meetings. Did not realize that it is a hotel restaurant. Pleasant atmosphere and the food was quite good. The service started off good, but as the evening progressed, it became more and more difficult to get our waiter's attention. The restaurant seemed busy for the staffing levels. Nevertheless, it was a good experience, the cocktails were good and the food above average.

Quiet location attached to the Hyatt Grand. Great place to meet if you are at Metro Center to meet friends. Food was innovative and varied. Reasonably priced with a wine taste to accompany your meal. Good option for catching up with friends or business associates

Food and service were good; however, since the restaurant is part of the grand Hyatt hotel everything was taxed extra. About an extra $60 in taxes. Ouch.

This tri level bistro offers great service and top notch food. Wine list is small but effect. Food selections were diverse and well prepared. There appears to be a trend in upscale hotel dinning and the Hyatt is following suite.

My chard was a bit salty, the char was overcooked, the potatoes were great. The duck prosciutto flat bread was very tasty. Other dishes were ok too. The creme brulee and the chocolate cake were amazing. The restaurant's lay out is awkward and the first table offered was a high table.by the window. Still, everyone was very accommodating and we enjoyed our enening.

First off, this not a $$ restaurant. $$$ at a minimum. One of our guests spent over $100 on a burger, a kids chicken tender with fries, and an appetizer. Apperizers and one round of drinks for 6 people was over $200. Second, are party was seated in a lounge. Not at tables, even though we had a dinner reservation. Third, our waiter disappeared. Drink refills and problems with our orders required us to walk around and find someone. Manager and hostess stood at the front and kept their backs to us. We had to go to them. We skipped the entrees, paid our bill and left. Hell of a start to a birthday celebration. Just avoid the place.

I had my dinner at around 9 pm. I ordered the $50 3 courses Christmas dinner and the quality was not what i expected. I couldn't finish the soup, and the lamb rack and the dessert were just average.
I don't think I will recommend this restaurant to others or come back. The food was just not good.

We went to Cure for Christmas while traveling from out of town. Since it's in the lobby of a hotel, it got fairly loud at times when people were in the lobby. Cure had a Christmas set menu for $50pp. The food was average (nothing special) - I had a pasta dish and my husband rack of lamb. The dessert was like a mousse cheesecake with a gelatinous film on top and not very good. The service was also lacking the entire evening. When it came time to pay, the server brought us our check, but then ran the card and charged us for a neighboring table's meal. Thankfully we caught it before signing and they were able to cancel that out and charge us for the proper meal, but overall just not satisfied with the experience. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

We sat at the bar for a Christmas Day supper. We had high hopes because the menu looked so interesting. But the big beautiful chunks of bread with the pimiento cheese were very stale, the chorizo casserole had an unpleasant seasoning and the chicken was poorly presented on the plate. It just wasn't good at all.

However, the bartender Sandy made excellent cocktails and was friendly, efficient and attentive.She made up for the food deficiencies!

We were ignored by the waitress. The food came out lukewarm, probably because she forgot about us all night. We were told by another waitress that she was overwhelmed, which was ridiculous since it was not very crowded. Our waitress consciously chose to serve a larger party instead of us and never made eye contact with us when walking in the room directly to the other table.

Ten of us, perched at a table away from any other diners, kind of like a nest overlooking the Grand Hotel. We had mostly appetizers and then delicious chicken soup or veggie chili or other great entrees. We could talk easily and had a wonderful time.
