Food portions were RIDICULOUSLY small. For a table of six splitting multiple things, I wish we had known the size.

Service was lackluster. Would have ordered more food given the chance. Music was not something I would have ever chosen to listen to, but I get that you can’t please everyone. 20% auto gratuity was told to us at the beginning but not reminded when given the bill. Former service industry, I know you’re hoping for the extra grat, but it’s poor form. Server seemed uninterested and unfriendly

The cocktails and apps were delicious. It is definitely high end and the price reflects that, but it is not outrageous and the ambience is very classy. I highly recommend for a fancy pre- or post-date night cocktail, cute girls night, small celebration for birthday, or promotion.

This is a great stop for a cocktail and small plate particularly if you will be having a big meal later or if you just want drinks and a light meal. The food was great, but its the drink menu that is outstanding.

Best time I've ever had at Cure! The martinis were perfect, the food was fresh and delicious- we got all the cheese, charcuterie, deviled eggs, olives and trout dip, all excellent. The staff were warm, attentive and did a great job maintaining covid measures. The restaurant was well-spaced out, but the ambience was still great.

Staff were extremely attentive, food and drinks were pricey but so worth it! This was an awesome choice for my 21st! If anything the music could’ve been a little lower, it was hard to hear the people just at my table. But the staff were super upbeat and accommodating (offered to turn the vent for us when my mom mentioned she was cold) and our orders were brought out quickly. Thank you, Cure!

Cure rocks! The best option in the city for those looking for high quality cocktails, craft and classic, but without the pretense. The energy and ambiance is great for solo bar hoppers, couples or a group :)

Thank you staff of Cure for much needed relief from the goings-on of our daily lives in what one news outlet describes as "the greatest human experiment in the history of mankind."

Our dinner and drinks were like a trip to the beach!

Already sent some pics to friends telling them what fun we had.

We will be back!

Definitely my favorite place for drinks in New Orleans. The atmosphere is amazing. The cocktails are the best around. My only complaint would be that the music is just a little too loud.

Always an amazing experience!

Nothing was good. Service was horrible. No wine selection. Atmosphere was hugely disappointing. And it takes superior talent to mess up a cheese plate.
Focaccia was stale and the “ banquette “ couldn’t even be broken much less chewed.
They added food to menu so they could open earlier. Disaster

Great atmosphere and drinks but a little overpriced. They got rid of their happy hour, which was my favorite part, so drinks are $10-$15 each, which definitely adds up.

Service was excellent, cocktails and food were amazing! This place never disappoints.

I saw them wiping down all of the tables in between reservations as well. It was my first time out since everything shut down, and it was clear they took the care to keep the space safe and clean. Very comforting.
