CURED Table & Tap is an exciting new restaurant in Columbia, Maryland that brings back fond memories of the neighborhood corner bar and the relaxing atmosphere that is created when good friends, great drinks, and classic comfort foods come together.
From the list of exceptional craft beers, to the creative cocktails, to the satisfying menu, CURED is all about crafting a laid back experience while still elevating the pairing of comfort food and thirst quenching drinks. Our goal is for every guest who visits us to feel as relaxed as if they were at their grandmother’s house (assuming their grandmother makes amazing craft cocktails and delicious food).
So if you're looking for a great place to meet up with friends, heading to a concert at Merriweather Post Pavilion right next door, or looking for something uniquely different but still wonderfully familiar, we'll make sure to save you a seat.

Positives. Food was good. Dessert was good.
Neutral. Cocktails were tasty, but small without much alcohol.
Negatives. Despite using OpenTable for reservations and a half empty place, got seated in likely the worst table in a high traffic area. This was after OpenTable asked if I wasted a high top, which I said no. High top is where they wanted us to sit. A look of annoyance came when I told hostess I didn't want it. Table was so wobbly, it spilled my drink when I cut my steak. Waitress was friendly, but service was slow.

Great first visit to Cured Table and Tap. There are two restaurants in the same location/building. The more upscale is Cured 18th and 21st. Be sure you book the one you want.

The food was delicious; however it was extremely noisy and the tables were very close together. Every time a waiter walked by our table they bumped into me. Our table was also very close to the waiter station (where they were putting in orders). Just not the best place to seat people for dinner. Otherwise, the food and drinks were good.

Love this place for brunch. Great tapas style of options are perfect for sharing with friends. Must have the duck confit sticky buns and the breakfast pizza. Also the buy one get one mimosas and bloody marys make for a relaxing way to start the day. Great service and fun atmosphere make this a Sunday go to for us.

Service was just okay, but the food was pretty good. They were out of the steak and cheese egg rolls, but the pulled pork tater tot appetizer was good. We had burgers, crab cake, pulled pork sandwich and meatloaf. All good. Dessert was nice too - bread pudding and creme brûlée, both nice. Would go here again.

The staff created an inviting atmosphere and seemed well versed on the menu options. This place offers a variety of small plates that are great for meal sharing. Our visit wasn’t during “happy hour” and I found the beverage prices a little high although if you’re looking for variety this place has every imaginable choice for wines and cocktails. Really appreciated the tour given after our meal.

This was our third visit to Cured, but the first time for brunch. It exceeded our expectations! Our table of 6 (4 adults, 2 kids) had at least one of almost everything on the menu (it's small, shareable plates). Some items were so delicious that we ordered seconds of them. Can't wait to go back for brunch soon!

Had a very nice birthday dinner here. We had no trouble making a reservation for 7 which was a huge relief after having trouble at other restaurants in the area. They were busy, but well equipped to serve large parties. The service was excellent and the food was very good. I had the Nashville hot chicken sandwich. But my favorite part was dessert and the whiskey caramel ice cream. That ice cream reminded me of my travels to Ireland and the delicious creameries they have in Dublin.

The first thing I notice about a restaurant is if it's clean. Cured gets an A+ for cleanliness, including the bathrooms. Rule of thumb is: if the restaurant and restrooms are clean-- the kitchen will also be clean-- then I can guarantee you that your food is going to be fresh and well-prepared. Cured did not miss the mark-- everything tasted fresh and made to order.
The second thing I notice is the staff. Cured has a welcoming , friendly staff . Our host, Ben was very polite and professional. Our waitress Janna was very friendly, attentive, and helpful. I was a little chilly, and she even lowered the air for me.
The food was excellent. I ordered the asparagus salad with grilled salmon. The greens were fresh, and there was a generous amount of perfectly cooked asparagus. The salmon was FRESH and grilled to perfection. Our waitress allowed me to switch out feta for blue cheese crumbles and opt for a different dressing also. My husband ordered the sloppy Joe grilled cheese, which was amazing. Their paprika fries are delicious too!! The dessert was an incredible chocolate pecan crumble tart concoction that came with ice cream. I asked for whipped cream also, and was given a generous dollop of it. We had not a single complaint.

Bottom Line-- If you are looking for an excellent meal, great ambience, and welcoming staff, check out Cured. You will not be disappointed. I would highly recommend reservations during dinner/peak hours.

*Bonus: Parking garage/short walk to entrance.

Very strange brunch experience - the restaurant is beautiful, and the service was very good, but the food was consistently mediocre at best. It was especially disappointing because the menu was so creative. The melon soup was tasteless, the dock confit sticky bun was nearly inedible, the asparagus salad was poorly prepared, the steak was too thin, and the egg benedict was bizarre. The kitchen did better with fried foods – the French toast was excellent, and the nutella donuts were very good. The short rib hash was also fairly good, although it was swamped with onions. I would probably give it another chance for dinner, but they have to approve their food or they won’t be successful.

Visited Cured Saturday evening. When we arrived we were seated right away and most of the tables around us were not seated so it wasn't that busy yet. After a few minutes our waitress came over and greeted us and said I see you are waiting for the rest of your party and she left. We were planning on ordering a drink and she was gone before we could get a word out. So we sat our our table until the rest of our group arrived and only then did she return to take a drink order... we would have had at least one drink each, if not more, while waiting yet she vanished. Once we were all seated, she appeared again and we asked her about one of the custom draft cocktails on the menu. Her reply was, "I don't know." Not, let me check or I will look into it. Just, I don't know and then she stood there waiting for my friend to order (and the question wasn't difficult). When I asked for a gin and tonic, she asked what type of gin I wanted. I said what do you have and she said I don't know. I just picked a random common one that I figured you had but would have loved to try something from a local distillery, that I'm sure you had. When we asked about the food menu, someone asked her to describe the grilled cheese sloppy joe and she said, "Its like it says. Its a grilled cheese with sloppy joe meat." Okay...duh on us I guess?
Sometimes I wonder if these servers have ever been out to eat before? If I were at TGIFridays or On The Boarder, okay...these wouldn't be unreasonable responses. But at a place that is trying to attract the more upscale crowd, I think it is fair to expect the servers to at least find out the answer if they don't know it, or make an effort to appear helpful. Especially if they are working on a Saturday night. The food was all excellent. But the service was subpar. Hopefully some additional training will be offered and the servers will have a chance to try different things on the menu or be given a reference list for such questions.

We have been anxious to invite friends from DC to enjoy the restaurant since the first time we came there. It did not let down their expectations.

We ordered several brunch selections and each was fantastic. Our friend is a lover of oysters and the selection was to his liking and delivered to our table.

We will be returning to enjoy the dining on the other side of the restaurant soon. Thank you Kyle for coming over, Saying hello so we could introduce our dining companions.
